As ever, these wellbeing tips do not replace professional advice. Please do if you feel events in your life are overwhelming and need to speak to someone. Your wellbeing matters: we all need to talk to someone sometimes. A friend, a family member, a colleague at work or a group you are a member of, or where more clinical interventions are needed, a health care professional. Remember, the Samaritans are there 24/7 365 Tel 116 123.

Looking after our mental and emotional health is as important as looking after our physical health. This does not mean, at times, we may not be challenged. However, when we practice self-care, we may find when life is challenging, it does not take so much out of us.

The audio recording in this piece offers some ideas on becoming mindful of the loads we are carrying so that we can ask ourselves. 'Do I need to carry all of this today?' ' Do I need to carry it so far?' ' Can I ask for help?'
