YOUR BODY IS DOING ITS BEST.

 Dealing with the many changes in how we live, work and play together costs a lot of energy. If you notice yourself feeling anxious, angry or hopeless, it’s important to know that these feelings are not a sign of weakness. They are signs that your body is working hard to adapt to stress.  

The good news is: our bodies and minds are hard-wired to regulate stress. 

However, this ability doesn’t depend on us alone. When our bodies start signalling distress, it’s time to invest in wellbeing. 

 

ASKING FOR HELP IS A SIGN OF STRENGTH

We often try our best not to show we’re struggling out of fear of seen as “weak” or “needy”. Research on how people manage extremely difficult challenges in their lives has shown that the ability to ask for help makes a major difference in whether we develop mental health problems, or not. 

If you don’t know who to turn to in your community, please visit United for Global Mental Health’s website, where you will find a directory of helplines around the world.
