Today is World Mental Health Day, sometimes all we have to do is ask someone how they are. Life is full of so many challenges and sometimes things get a little too much, the stress and pressures of so many things can mean that we feel out of kilter, separate from the world around us. That’s OK, we have to remember that others might be going through things we have no idea about, and with that in mind it’s important not to make assumptions or judgements about others, instead let’s just as three very simple words… “How are you?”
Then it’s about listening, not trying to give advice or put our two piece in, it’s about listening and letting that person talk. So today of all day’s please ask, how are you and really listen to the answer, it could make more of an impact that you can every imagine.
