This post is seemingly directed at those living with some kind of mental illness, however can be used to maintain good mental health no matter who you are and what your circumstances. Tackling complex thoughts and emotions is difficult and often takes lots of different methods of support or self-help to actually make a difference. Think of it as a tool box, and at different times of your life you will take out different tools to find a ‘fix’. Not one person’s brain is wired the same way, not one person has had the same experiences and not one person can ever truly understand the way someone else feels- despite how much we might want to. I can’t talk on behalf of everyone, but here is my personal mental health toolbox.

If you’d like to read more about ‘self-care’, take a look at my new blog series here

What is in your mental health toolbox?

Until next time,

  1. I like the idea of a ‘mental health’ toolbox and there have been points where I have had all of the items in your ‘toolbox’ from pills to affirmations, In my toolkit at the moment I have cute pugs and cats, food and music 🙂

    1. That sounds like the most adorable toolbox ever! 🙈 I like to think of it as a toolbox because you don’t use everything all of the time. For example, I’m no longer on medication, but that doesn’t mean that tool won’t come out again in the future if I need it. 😊😊 Thanks for being open about what helps you! Xxx

      1. That is actually a good point to make and you are right in saying that we will not always use everything in our toolbox at one given point in time but it is handy to know that it is there in case we need it.

  4. What an innovative idea to have a mental health box that you can put your hand in and choose a remedy. I think relaxing exercising , meditation and family time would be what I would put in my box.
