There’s a wealth of content on social media aimed at inspiring and motivating us to live better lives.
A cottage industry of well-being podcasts has developed, with celebrities telling us how to be more mindful and sharing experiences of their own mental health journeys.
Some if it is very good.
My particular favourites include Sophie Ellis Bextor’s ‘Spinning Plates’ podcast, there’s also ‘Happy Place’ by Fearne Cotton.
Dragon’s Den star Steven Bartlett has a podcast called Diary of a CEO which often discusses issues around mental health and wellbeing.
There are many others as well as thousands of hours of content on YouTube with everyone from Russell Brand to Claudia Winkleman sharing advice on physical and mental health, relationships, career and financial success and more.
Search around or ask a health professional and I’m sure you’ll find something that’s a good fit for you.
What you quickly realise is that whatever issues you’re dealing with are likely to be shared by some very well known and outwardly successful people. And many of those faces smiling at us from magazines and television screens are often hiding similar struggles to what we might be going through.
It’s a special week on the Digital Minute as we recognise Mental Health Awareness week and you can find out more at www.mentalhealth.org.uk
