What do you tend to do when you're feeling overwhelmed by negative thoughts or stress? Most of us want to "fix" negative emotions – but this approach usually makes it worse! Dealing with negative emotions isn't always about fixing them; sometimes, acknowledging and recognising them is enough. Handling your mental health matters isn't always a long, drawn-out process. Our guest for this episode shares how you can start managing negative thoughts and feelings — in as little as 10 minutes!

Dr Lee David joins us to discuss practical tools for managing our negative emotions healthily. She shares the GROW model, which anyone can perform in just 10 minutes. We also talk about how labelling your experience through words and images can help organise your thoughts. Lee also shares how to be actively compassionate towards ourselves. Your mental health matters; working on your mental and emotional health for a few minutes daily can do wonders. 

If you want to know how to manage and address your mental health matters, stay tuned to this episode.

  1. Learn why trying to fix negative emotions is counterproductive.
  2. Discover how to manage your mental health matters in as little as 10 minutes.
