3 videos that will help you find peace of mind

Stress, anxiety, depression: we all experience one or more of these in our lifetime. Set a little time aside and help improve your mood.

8 relaxation tips for good wellbeing

While these tips may seem like common sense, it’s surprising how often we get caught up in the now and forget to unwind, and relax. From simple breathing exercises, to simply remembering to take some time out, these 8 tips are practical and effective.

Some, such as getting creative, you can start doing right now. Others, like getting active, may take a little bit of planning, but all will set you on your way to feeling like your old self again.


Food vs mood

Did you know that something as simple as not eating regularly can seriously affect your mood? Did you also know that eating more protein can help you better process your thoughts and feelings?

This video provides great insight as to what foods can help lift your mood and what effect they have on the body.


Get moving

Finding motivation to leave the house and be active can be difficult, but finding ways to become more active has been proven to improve mood.

The 5 tips in the video will help you find that motivation. You don’t even need to leave the house, even pesky chores count as exercise and could give you a sense of achievement.

“You can find many motivational videos on youtube for mental and physical well being, ted talks are a great place to start.” Added Picture Book Films, a company specialising in video production in London.

Still not feeling motivated?

There are plenty of people you can go to for help and advice. Charities such as Mind and The Samaritans do a wonderful job of reaching out and providing support. Don’t be afraid to speak to your doctor as they can offer support and advice tailored to your needs.

Finally, for an everyday pick-me-up there are lots of apps available for smartphones, or a simple Google search will help you find guided relaxation and meditation videos.
