Welcome to Mental Health Awareness Week 2021!
After being stuck inside for over a year, the Mental Health Foundation has decided to spend Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 outside and in nature, something our sensory experts are particularly excited about.
We’ve written before about the deep-rooted connection between nature and sensory. We’ve also written about the mood-boosting properties of our senses; when you put the two together, you get quite a practical potion for supporting your senses and your wellbeing.
To get you thinking about nature, your senses and your mood, our sensory team have put together a handy ‘Five Senses Focus’ activity sheet for you to get stuck into (which you can download right here). Tick the boxes as you explore your senses and fill in the blanks with your own sensory inspiration – why don’t you let us know which sense you enjoyed exploring the most by sharing your checklist with us on social media?
We hope that you have an honestly optimistic week talking about, sharing and supporting your mental health.
