I don’t know about you but I’ve had an incredibly busy and stressful few weeks. I’ve gotten to the point where I have so much to do that I don’t even know where to start. It’s kind of hard to prioritise when at least half of your to do list is important and needs to be done immediately. So today is the perfect time to take a moment to take about something vital: mental health. Being stressed, overwhelmed or anxious about things can have a negative impact on your mental health. So many people experience mental health problems – and yet we don’t talk about it enough! Monday 8th May will mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. This is such a crucial topic so let’s talk about it.
I wanted to talk a little about the topic today, in advance of the week to give you time to get involved. In particular, I wanted to share some of the things I’ve found that help me to cope.
I recently shared a post on why people volunteer. Before you read this, I highly recommend checking that out. I spoke about the many reasons people volunteer, myself included. However, I did not go into depth on the reason why I personally started volunteering then, so I thought I would take the opportunity now to talk about this now..

Hello! Today is a very important day, in my opinion because today is World Mental Health Day. Every year on this day, people all over the world join together to talk about mental health and to raise more awareness of ill health. I wish we didn’t need this day, to be quite honest. I wish there was no stigma around this topic, that people opened up and spoke about it and that there was enough awareness to get support whenever you need it. However, sadly, there is still a lot of negativity and judgement when someone mentions the words ‘mental illness’. So today I wanted to dedicate a quick post to to this day and how it relates to my life, in particular why I love crafting and planners so much.
