I am ok:
Self-care is an important part of maintaining the feeling of being ok, bringing this into your everyday life is key to maintaining good health, some examples may include:
- Regular calls with a friend
- Writing goals/aspirations
- Unplugging social media intermittently.
During a phase of good wellbeing, you may have the opportunity to help someone else asking them if they are, ok? You may have concerns about someone at work, maybe noticing a change in behaviour that is unusual for them and seems out of the ordinary, for example avoiding things and their responsibilities, looking tired, change in hygiene.
Its ok to let the person know you care. On reaching out the person may dismiss your concerns, asking twice is important alongside listening without judgement.
