Mindapples are an organisation whose aim is to build a positive culture for mental health. We’ve been working with them since our first Health Event, bringing their e-learning to colleagues to help guide us in understanding our minds and what keeps us at our best.
Why not check out the different e-learning modules on Academy Online.
- Feed your mind
- Manage your moods
- Handling pressure
- Get motivated
- Know yourself
One of the first things Mindapples ask people to do is to think about their ‘five-a-day’ for their mind. We all know we should eat at least five portions of fruit and veg a day to keep our bodies healthy, but what do we do every day to keep our minds healthy? These will be things that are meaningful to you and make you feel happy, calm, relaxed- whatever your mind needs. These are your Mindapples!
Everyone’s Mindapples will be different and sometimes they might be complete opposites! For example, one person might want to spend time with their family and friends to relax, while someone else might prefer to take an hour to be by themselves. The important thing is that you do what works for you.
Mindapples is a way of bringing the research-based five steps to mental wellbeing (keep learning, give, be active, connect, and take notice) to life and making them more meaningful to individuals.
