This week is Mental Health Week.
Do you want to make a difference and possibly contribute to another's good mental health?
Here is a tip:
There is a part of the brain called the amygdalae and it is located deep within the brain. It is the part of the brain that picks up threat signals (e.g. dangerous words and phrases, dangerous faces, voices, sounds, movement, postures and smells).
Did you know that when you use some awareness and make your approach or how you speak with someone positive through a gentle voice, some kind words, a smile or an expression of appreciation you are making a difference to how they experience the world around them. You are technically soothing that part of the brain!
Use some of these kind gestures or words this week and you may just make a difference to someone who needs it. Listen here for a very short interview about about simple exchanges in your relationship that contribute to good mental health and how a relationship can thrive with the right kind of care.
A fantastic book on the subject is Wired For Love by Dr. Stan Tatkin
