Let’s Disconnect, Breathe and Actually Speak!

In celebration of World Mental Health Day, let’s make it World Mental Health Month and exercise some prevention is better than cure.

World Mental Health DayDealing with a mountain of daily emails can seriously undermine our mental health. If you add the fact that very few of us these days actually pick up the phone and speak to somebody, it’s easy to see why people end up feeling so alone and anxious.

We are slaves to 24/7 digital contact that often leaves us with no meaningful human interaction. Our minds are unable to prioritise things that matter, leaving no room for a mental reboot.

The answer lies in being able to say NO to certain things and YES to making human contact. So pick up the phone and make a date to meet someone in your life and talk. You know it makes sense!
