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”.

  • Smile at the mirror

    It was not without reason that the nation took these words of poet Einar Benediktsson to heart: “One smile can turn darkness into light”. A smile is a proven miracle cure. Smile in front of the mirror, say something beautiful and encouraging to yourself and you will feel better. If you make it your habit to smile regularly to yourself, you will find it easier to be tolerant towards yourself and others. There’s no harm in trying!
