Who doesn’t want better mental health?  This can help!

BBC iPlayer has a 30-day challenge to help improve our mental wellness, and has an action for each of the 30 days.  I will write a short blog about my experiences for each day.

Here is Dr Zoe with more information about the challenge:


Week One – Connect

This week, the focus of the challenges is “connect” – and by this we mean actual human interaction. Evidence shows that good relationships – with family, friends and our wider communities – are important for our mental wellbeing. Building stronger, wider social connections can help us feel happier and more secure, and give us a greater sense of purpose. As Dr Zoe says, “We’re social animals and we don’t thrive when we’re lonely and isolated.”

  • Challenge four – Make time for family

  • Challenge six – Call mum or dad
