If you have followed me for a while then you will know i am an absolute advocate for mental health and keeping your mind as healthy as it can be.

With the current situation in the world , I know we are all feeling the strain and for me , taking time out to read and enjoy a hot cup of tea , mum life  , gives me a chance to recuperate and gather my thoughts .

Anyone else currently have a brain that is running 100 miles per hour and doesn’t want to slow down? :) 

I was recently sent a book by Clare Davis called Emotional fitness , A-Z for positive mental health . This book is definitely my kind of read and couldn’t wait to get stuck in .

we all have ups and downs in life and worries but instead of merely ‘getting over ‘ them , this book can help us work on them on a daily basis in the hope that they become easier to manage :)

Clare is actually a qualified Mental Heath first aid instructor through MHFA England and Nuco training. 

Her ambition is to bring preventative measures into people’s lives to enhance their emotional fitness by addressing the concerns before they escalate and become out of control.

This book was such a light and easy read . There are 26 ways in this book to increase positive emotions and improve emotional fitness with practical activities to work on too.

I am a big fan of quotes and affirmations, they can really set you up for the day or just simply put a smile back on your face . 

The book is full of lovely quotes which you can copy and put up on a mood board to remind yourself of .

A quote from Clare which is so true and I’ve never heard before is 

“If you live your life on an emotional rollercoaster, you may end up not living your life.”

This book retails at £12.99 and can be purchased from amazon.  I think it would make a lovely gift this Xmas.
