Download: Self-care staples for grey days


We all have grey days. On grey days, self-care can feel like the hardest thing in the world. It’s also often exactly the time we need it most.

On this poster, write down:

  • Three things that bring comfort
  • A reminder
  • Feel-good media
  • Soothing sounds
  • Activities that light us up
  • People we can reach out to

Popping down some self-care staples removes the barrier of trying to think of self-care activities when we feel naff.

What do people say about our work?

“Thankyou to everyone at Blurt for bringing joy and sunshine to this year. It’s been a hard recovery year for me, but your messages made me feel like I wasn’t the only one. Never doubt the difference you make!”

“I had a difficult start to the year when I found myself at my lowest darkest I have ever been. Crawling out wasn’t easy, but finding Blurt made a huge difference! I love reading my weekly Saturday morning emails, and I so look forward to my buddy box every month! It’s little things, but I’ve come to realise these little things add up, and they’ve made a hugely positive impact on my life. So thank you to all you beautiful lovely people,”

“Blurt is just awesome! Always seems to pop up in my feed at exactly the right moment too. So reassuring and comforting that ‘you’re not the only one’.”
