Cultivate the mind and support Geðhjálp

This winter, Geðhjálp, the Icelandic Mental Health Alliance, offers daily doses of small, straightforward tips intended to improve mental health. We call those tips “vitamin G”.

  • Prepare for the day before you head off

    Many people prepare for the day in the morning, before setting off, with meditation or breathing exercises – adjusting their attitude and expectations. Remind yourself that the day could be full of communication with other people who might be in all kinds of conditions and mental states. Fill yourself with tenderness and kindness to others before you set off and remind yourself that all the trees in the forest have a common root system – a common humanity that underpins and connects all of us. This is something that we can all grow within ourselves.
