January hits hard, but January combined will full lockdown, definitely hits harder than ever before.
Unfortunately, there is still a huge stigma around mental health but 1 in 4 people will experience a problem of some kind each year in England, so for anyone reading this, we want to tell you:
It’s ok if today isn’t your day!
As we currently all look to keep ourselves safe and well, lockdown can be a very lonely place, so please don’t forget to look after your mind, as well as your body.
Looking to the year ahead, there are still so many uncertainties and we are all experiencing different struggles. A quote which spoke volumes to us, ‘We’re in the same storm, but not the same boat.’
So this is a reminder, please allow yourself to feel those emotions, talk about them and reach out, there is so much help available.
In light of the above, our chosen charity for 2021 will be Mind, all fundraising by Beninca UK throughout the year will be donated to help support the fantastic work they do.
Stay strong! We are on the home straight and hope is in sight, with brighter days on their way!
