Complimenti all’Italia… congratulations to Italy! Eurovision 2021 is over and Italy have emerged as the winners, well done. Now I just have to find something to do for the next 51 weeks while I wait for the next one… #joking #notjoking
Anyway here’s a quick snapshot of my favourite things this week – hopefully at least one will make you smile/smirk/feel inspired. Have a fantastic week and a brilliant weekend!
PS: I have another milestone to say thank you for… I recently pulled my reporting data and I now have listeners in 135 countries! Still a bit speechless… thank you very much 🙂
PPS: I made a decision this week to stop doing the No-Nonsense Advice for Living videos for the time being so I can give my full focus to Let’s Talk About Mental Health TV (and the podcast, of course). Click here to read the update on Instagram.
My favourite things this week:
1. Show — The Me You Can’t See [via Apple TV]
I had to upgrade my Mac earlier this year (apparently 9 years with the same Mac is pushing it past its limit, especially when you’re a content creator!) and I was given a 12-month subscription to Apple TV which has come in handy this week as I’ve stared watching Oprah and Prince Harry’s documentary series The Me You Can’t See about mental health. I’m very pleased to see these two using their platforms to talk about this subject. You can check it out on Apple TV (subscription required) or read about it on the Oprah Daily website here.
2. Social media — Negative Thought Traps… by @mentalhealthamerica [via Instagram]
Loved this post a few days ago with some negative thought traps and if you view the original post (click here) you can find out a bit more about each in the caption. Either way, a timely reminder of thoughts to be mindful of.
3. Social media — A note about FEAR reposted by Psych2Go [via YouTube]
Part of my job involves researching what others are doing in the space I operate in so that I’m not being too repetitive… and time after time I come back to Psych2Go as the gold standard because they make sure all videos are grounded in quality research (sound familiar?!). And this video provides evidence that spending time with a cat or dog makes you feel better, so count me in!
Tip of the week for better mental health:
If you’re feeling some type of way about something, write it down in order to get it out before you do anything. The act of writing can be helpful to allow you the outlet that you need for your emotions so that you can then look at the situation in a more calm and rational way.
