Mental Health Awareness Week – Day 5

The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is Kindness. Kindness and our mental health are deeply connected and kindness can be an antidote to isolation and create a sense of belonging. We’re sharing Kindness sessions and stories each day this week. Be sure to pop back every day to enjoy another session of self-care because #KindnesssMatters


Take some time out for yourself today and relax, it’s important to look after yourself especially during these difficult times.

Our Yoga Teacher, Sarah has shared a 5-minute breathing exercise which will help you feel grounded and relaxed.
