Overview of techniques
Over the next few weeks we are going to help you to develop skills that are proven to help improve emotional health:
- Self-care: look after yourself
- Practice mindfulness
- Active relaxation
- Be more self-compassionate
- Let go of control
- Develop a strong support network
- If you’re in a relationship, take time to work on your relationship
Some of these techniques – like mindfulness – take practice, and it’s normal to find it difficult at the start. But with practice you’ll start to notice the benefits.
It also really is a case of finding what works best for you – everyone is different. So don’t be disheartened if you try something and you don’t find it helpful, just try another technique.
Make a commitment to yourself now that you are going to prioritise your emotional health on this journey and try one of these techniques each week.
