The buzz word of recent times has been mindfulness. This essentially means being more present in the moment and focusing and resetting the mind; rather than allowing our thoughts to take over.
Often the ego, the little voice in our head, can sound negative, fill us with self doubt and stop us from moving forward. This is where we need to take steps to overrule it and train our mind to focus on the positives, our strengths and what we need to achieve in the immediate future for example.
It can be very difficult to begin to do this though if you are already depressed, anxious, stressed or experiencing a serious mental health condition. In this case you may find something like one to one counselling or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy helpful to get you back to a place where you can then start to take some control yourself.

You often only see the amazing achievements and hear praise for how well people's children are doing. With a full lockdown, it is no different and people have been keen to share their proud moments online. It's great to share how much you're managing to get your children to work through and to upload for their teacher. It's often a hard job; so really well done.

You Are Not Alone
We are In This Together
Our overall aim was to create a hub with local and national contacts, for both immediate and ongoing support; along with resources and inspiration for better mental and physical wellbeing. We are adding blog posts, helpful articles, fitness tools and very soon podcasts, videos like above and lots more.
Looking ahead there will be regular local meet ups. We are working towards breaking down the stigma and ensuring that Sudbury is the Town that understands Mental Health; please join us on this journey.
