SELF-CARE FOR YOUR MIND:

  • Journal your thoughts. First thing in the morning is the best time to catch what your Subconscious Mind is really thinking.

  • Speak into a Dictaphone (or similar app on your phone) about something that is bothering you, speak freely then listen back. You might be surprised by what you hear!

  • Eat foods that increase brain power – protein, essential fats.

  • Eat to stabilise your blood sugar – we all know how fuzzy we feel when our blood sugar takes a dip. Keep your brain charged up.
  • Meditation
