Life can be draining! And pressure can easily make us loose ourselves in trying to balance all the things demanding our attention – school, family, friends, assignments, tasks – you name it. Today , we took a pause to celebrate the International Mental Health Day which is an annual commemoration aimed at raising awareness on the importance of mental health. We spent the day at the University of Zimbabwe where we presented on the state of mental health in Africa – paying a special focus to the opportunities of harnessing our diverse culture (e.g. safe spaces) to promote mental wellbeing for all. It cannot be denied that at the core of all mental health conversations is the subject of selfcare, which we would like to refer to as the act of filling your cup!
Here are ways in which you can fill your cup :
This International Mental Health Day, make self-care your ultimate superpower! Fill your cup with joy, energy, and self-love. Remember, life is a celebration, and you deserve to thrive. So, go ahead, fill your cup!
