TLC for the Mind

placeit (7)

I’m prone to anxiety and depression, so over the years I’ve learned to hone the prescription I need to keep my mind strong and healthy. Regular exercise, lots of yoga, plenty of sleep, eating well, meditation or mindfulness exercises, a finely tuned balance of ‘up’ time socialising and ‘down’ time to myself, and top-up therapy every so often.

Every person has their own prescription. Make time to discover yours.

I’ve gained strength from the books, blogs and other tools below.
I hope they can help you too.
