So much wisdom in there. Thanks Belinda, Kate & Bek!
On mental health stuff… the tools that I’ve found really helpful are:
Headspace app (for mindfulness):https://www.headspace.com/headspace-meditation-app
Five minute journal (for gratitude): http://app.fiveminutejournal.com/
Kate, I related to what you said around wanting to be less reactive. For me, that’s a work in progress, but these two tools have made a dent in it.
But like Bek said, there’s a hundred ways of looking after ourselves- as long as we have at least some!
Hey thanks so much for listing Matt, will definitely check out those too apps.
I’m a HUGE fan of Headspace and it’s part of my (nearly every) morning ritual. I find the cumulative results of making that time each day help me stay calmer, enjoy the moment and see the light at the end of the tunnel a bit more easily. It’s easy to skip it though and then everything turns to pants!
