YOUR MENTAL HEALTH WORKOUT was trialled on Instagram throughout 2019. The feedback was phenomenal. People participated in their hundreds and through motivating and inspiring each other, created a corner of Instagram dedicated exclusively to emotional well being, connection and psychological change.
"I have found the last five weeks utterly enlightening, I have become so much more aware of myself, both in productive and counter-productive ways. Posting daily a brief synopsis of my Mental Health Workout has enabled me to see where and who my “true-self” is, it helps me to gain a sense of where the gaps in my overall self care lie and how I can make small, realistic and healthy changes in order to fill these gaps, which in turn offers me a more concrete foundation to build my life on and reach my full potential.

First things first, buy a planner and plan how you are going to incorporate YOUR MENTAL HEALTH WORKOUT into your life. This is the equivalent to wearing the right workout gear, when you like your outfit, your workout goes so much further. Having a plan means that in those really difficult moments where you feel you can’t carry on or you don’t know what to do, you have something to refer to and motivate you. In effect, the planner is your gym, you can set up all your mental health exercises within it.
