...and keep your face towards the light.
As I was cycling to a school in the rain this morning (to deliver a session on mental health!), I don't think I saw a single smiling face. And it struck me how much the weather affects some people's well-being - which got me thinking that keeping your face towards the light applies both literally and metaphorically. Getting enough daylight and sunlight is really important for our well-being; we know this. Yet in the UK, this can sometimes feel tricky, especially when it's grey and raining... So turning towards the light in a metaphorical sense might be a solution. Keeping your face towards the light - that is, things that cheer your mood and lighten your spirits - can really help boost your positivity and your sense of well-being.
Go and do what you enjoy, whether it's a small or a momentous thing. Find things that give you joy every day. For me, it's about standing in the rain and smelling the freshness, dancing in my lounge, or teaching my fitness classes. (And remember that your 'joy' is not the same as someone else's joy - so what enhances your well-being might not do the same for someone else.) I'd love to hear what you do to keep your face towards the light. I hope you have fun!
