Doing something you enjoy is a great way to boost your mood if you are struggling with your wellbeing. This could be anything from going out with friends, doing some exercise or even watching your favourite programme on the TV! Doing something you enjoy releases endorphins (a type of chemical) in our brains which might help improve your mood. It might be difficult to remember the things you like to do when you’re not feeling too good, so writing a list of things you like can be a great resource to refer back to if you need it!

When you help other people, it’s not just good for them, it is also good for you! Think of a time when you have helped someone – How did you feel after?

Helping others can really boost your mood and self-esteem. Try to take the time out of your day to help somebody – even it is only for a few minutes! You might be surprised with how positive you feel afterwards.

We are all different! And we all deal with our problems in different ways. Sometimes you may have days when things don’t go right. This might be anything from falling out with your friends to having a bad hair day!  This might make you feel sad, angry or worried for a short while however you soon get over it and get back to being your everyday self. However sometimes, you can feel a deeper level of sadness that might go on for a longer period of time. It's important to know your own body and the warnings that it might give off to show you’re not happy.

A great way to improve your mental health is to take time away from technology. Technology can be anything from watching your favourite programmes on TV to spending too much time on your phone! We understand that technology is a great way to chat to friends, but why not limit the time you spend on it? Research is showing that spending too much time on technology can be the reason why we may be experiencing problems with our mental health. Take the time that you would have spent on technology and learn a new skill. You might want to begin to learn a new language or learn how to cook!

O mon jardin d’eau fraîche et d’ombre
Ma danse d’être mon cœur sombre
Mon ciel des étoiles sans nombre
[poetry-adblock]Ma barque au loin douce à ramer
Heureux celui qui devient sourd
Au chant s’il n’est de son amour
Aveugle au jour d’après son jour
Ses yeux sur toi seule fermés

Heureux celui qui meurt d’aimer
Heureux celui qui meurt d’aimer

Il tombe encore des grêlons,
Mais on sait bien que c’est pour rire.
Quand les nuages se déchirent,
Le ciel écume de rayons.

Le vent caresse les bourgeons
Si longuement qu’il les fait luire.
Il tombe encore des grêlons,
Mais on sait bien que c’est pour rire.

Les fauvettes et les pinsons
Ont tant de choses à se dire
Que dans les jardins en délire
On oublie les premiers bourdons.
Il tombe encore des grêlons…


Sur mes cahiers d’écolier
Sur mon pupitre et les arbres
Sur le sable sur la neige
J’écris ton nom

Sur toutes les pages lues
Sur toutes les pages blanches
Pierre sang papier ou cendre
J’écris ton nom

Sur les images dorées
Sur les armes des guerriers
Sur la couronne des rois
J’écris ton nom

Sur la jungle et le désert
Sur les nids sur les genêts
Sur l’écho de mon enfance
J’écris ton nom

I need help now!
