It’s World Mental Health Day and the focus for this year is all about doing the little things that can make a big difference to your mental wellbeing.

Making time for mental wellbeing and self-care is important – and embedding small things as part of your routine can help you feel better and more resilient.

These small actions can include:

  • taking time to do mindful breathing by breathing in and out slowly
  • planning an hour of screen-free time before bed
  • reviewing your to-do list and breaking down your biggest tasks into smaller, easier-to-manage chunks
  • taking a walk
  • seeing or getting in contact with a friend or loved one
