Download: My Winter self-care staples


Winter can be a tricky time. As the weather turns, and the evenings get darker, some of us experience a mood shift. Moving towards the end of the year, the expectations on us can grow and grow, leaving us feeling like we’re never quite on top of things. We need our Winter self-care staples.

Self-care sometimes takes a back seat, but the times when we find self-care the hardest are exactly the times we need it. Self-care staples can help us to cope with the end-of-the-year busy-bustle. Pop five self-care non-negotiables on this download, then stick it up somewhere as a regular reminder.

What do people say about our work?

If you’re looking to improve your mental health literacy, follow the blog posts from @BlurtAlerts. They handle complex, layered mental health literacy in such simple & accessible ways (inc. audio). Their latest, on communicating in crisis is excellent.

I have supported Blurt for many years and I have always found your items, emails and work helpful. However at the moment I am really finding your site a real sort of strength, thank you for being there to help me through this time.

…I felt that I had lost a day and was giving myself a hard time.I came upstairs to get ready to have my bath when I saw your email. Wow, you do not know what that did for me. I’m a mum, a carer and a grandma and my days are filled with caring for everyone else but myself. You gave me permission to admit to my tiredness and to allow myself the indulgence of rest and relaxation. Thank you so very much. I hope one day that someone will sprinkle a little magic your way too. Have a great day,
