World Mental Health Day is on 10 October (10/10) every year. There’s so much worry and stress about this year that we thought people might benefit from ‘Taking 10’ to find some calm, mindful time in their day.

We’ve come up with 10 activities that you can do for 10 minutes or 10 seconds – it’s up to you how much time you have and whether you want to do one activity or more. All the activities are free to do, though some have the option of following a link to MindWell or other health or wellbeing-related websites, which have more ideas.

Taking time out to relax or enjoy yourself is an important part of feeling well. So, any time to you have to spare can help. If you take time for yourself on World Mental Health Day and feel better, it could even become a habit!
