Mental Health Awareness Week
Never has there been more of a need for us to be kind. To our partners, our children, our neighbours and ourselves...
As we find ourselves isolated and distanced from our friends and loved ones for the longest duration in any of our lifetimes, finding time for kindness and care is crucial. Many people struggle with mental health issues and this challenge has been exacerbated this year with lockdown and social distancing completely changing how we live, communicate and operate on a day to day basis.
FROM YOU TO ME are hoping to raise as much as we they can this week for the MENTAL HEALTH FOUNDATION Registered Charity 2350846 by donating 20% of the sales of all their mindfulness products https://www.fromyoutome.com/gift-journals/mindful-collection.html as part of Mental Health Awareness week 18-24 May.

In these unusual times, keeping a journal might provide some much needed solace and peace. “Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart,” said William Wordsworth. You don’t have to be a great poet to keep a journal – many of us do, writing down fairly meaningless wonderings (at least in my case) every day of our lives. It’s a wonderful way to capture our thoughts and feelings, and to untangle the worrying period we are living in.
FROM YOU TO ME is the authentic creator of beautiful and emotive gift books and journals, and we love them. They inspire us to reflect on, capture and share priceless memories and stories, and to create cherished moments.
Right now, more than ever, the FROM YOU TO ME Journals of a Lifetime are providing much needed solace for people who can’t be with their parents, grandparents or friends. The chance to get others to capture and share stories and memories from their amazing lives is more relevant in a world where we are unable to connect in the ways we have previously.
Getting children, who are now off school for the foreseeable future, to write, explore and learn from and with their parents is another challenge. The &Me range of journals gets kids to explore a question a day along with their mum, dad or a grandparent with the chance for the child, or indeed the adult, to share any concerns or worries they may be going through during these difficult times. Again, these can be done side by side or over the phone or video calls.
