headspace day is a national day of support for the mental health and wellbeing of all young Australians. It is happening just before Mental Health Week kicks off from the 9th – 16th of October and during Mental Health Month.
Building on last year's theme "small steps everyday", this year's theme is "small steps start big things". Taking regular, small actions that form healthy habits can manage feelings of isolation, lack of motivation, anxiety or stress.
Spending 5 to 10 minutes each day on something that helps to slow down a little, create a routine, connect with someone or take a moment to breathe can help build a healthy headspace - some small steps to start big things.
So, this headspace day, we are encouraging everyone to take small steps that work for them - whether it is finding a regular time to read something interesting, take a walk with friends, plant a herb garden or jot down your thoughts.
Lots of things will be happening this year to celebrate this day – the best way to stay connected is to follow the centres on social media! Search headspace Frankston, as well as our satellite site headspace Rosebud, on Facebook and Instagram to see what we are doing this year.
