At Copewithcounselling.co.uk, we're here to help you through this difficult time. In this blog, we'll discuss some tips to help improve your wellbeing when you're feeling low.


Practice self-care: Self-care is essential for your mental and emotional wellbeing. Make time for activities that make you feel good, such as taking a relaxing bath, reading a book, or going for a walk.


Stay active: Exercise is a natural mood-booster. Even light exercise, such as going for a walk, can help improve your mood and reduce stress.

Eat a balanced diet: Eating a balanced diet can help you feel better both physically and mentally. Try to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Get enough sleep: Lack of sleep can worsen low mood. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night and try to establish a consistent sleep routine.


Stay connected: Social support is important when you're feeling low. Try to stay connected with family and friends, even if it's just a phone call or text.


Challenge negative thoughts: Low mood can be accompanied by negative thoughts. Try to challenge these thoughts by asking yourself if they're realistic or if there's evidence to support them.


Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is a practice that involves being present in the moment without judgment. It can help reduce stress and improve overall wellbeing.
