World Mental Health Day serves as a reminder of the importance of mental well-being and the need to prioritise it. In a world that often moves at a relentless pace, taking a moment to reflect on our mental health and that of others is crucial.
This year, we’re celebrating World Mental Health Day by wearing yellow to show young people they're not alone with their thoughts and engaging in a simple yet powerful act of kindness: sharing positive affirmations.
Positive affirmations are statements that focus on our strengths, qualities, and positive attributes. They serve as reminders of the good within us, helping to boost self-esteem, increase self-compassion, and reduce stress. While self-affirmations are beneficial, affirming others can have a profound impact as well. It strengthens bonds, fosters positivity, and contributes to a healthier, happier community.
This challenge encourages you to write down one positive thing about yourself and one about someone else. It's a small but meaningful gesture that can have a significant impact on both your own mental well-being and that of others.
