    One for the boys!

    ďI was trying to find a decent short list of self care tips specifically for men to post today but failed dismally, which says a lot about attitudes towards menís mental health, I think. Finally, I came across this fantastic article which ends with ĎOne day wellness may cease to be a gendered issue. In the meantime, we need to get more men actively taking care of themselves.í Couldnít say it better myself 😉. Oh, and it has a short list of self care tips too! Paula xď

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Talking to yourself with kindness matters. If youíre struggling to think of nice things to say, perhaps ask those people in your life who love you to tell you what they love about you. Then repeat it back to yourself. You may not believe it at first but repetition might just change your perspective.

    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    I am not the worldís best cook and do not enjoy it so, when Iím in a bad place, eating healthily is the last thing on my mind. But some of these tips are doable, even for me, so Iíll be keeping this article to hand.

    In writing this after the heavens opened in my part of the U.K. Autumn has definitely arrived! My life at the moment is all about pushing my boundaries and finding new ways to live my life to its fullest so I shall definitely be trying some of these.

    I love that!
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Iím so sorry Ive been lax at posting anything here. This seems so simple but is often a huge stumbling block for anyone. While doing something for others is good, making sure youíre ok is just as important. And you canít support others if youíve crashed.
