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”.
Stand by yourself
Self-respect is one of the most important things we learn in life. It is necessary for us to find happiness and achieve a balance between ourselves and others. A strong self-image includes the determined belief that we are valuable and deserve all good things. That we are enough. We understand our limitations and know how to use our talents. The most important thing is to be able to set healthy limits for others. It is a comfort to be able to show compassion and warmth to oneself, especially when we get caught up in thinking about broken expectations. Pain will always be a part of life but if we show understanding and warmth, we can prevent pain from turning into long-term suffering. All of us are endowed with a unique combination of talents and strengths that make us unique. The most important thing is to be aware of our strengths, understand where they come from and use them.
