Week 4 of Chilypep’s online schedule- Practice a little kindness this mental health awareness week!

Mental health awareness week takes place this week, 18th-24th May 2020 and the theme is kindness. Kindness is one of Chilypep’s core values and this week we hope you’ll support us in flooding social media with acts of true kindness! We want to hear from you about when you’ve experienced true kindness, and we’ll be challenging you to be kind to yourself and others throughout the week!

We are now on week 4 of our social distancing schedule and all our activities are intrinsically linked to kindness so get involved and help spread a little love to yourself and others this week! (Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok to get involved!)…

Walking can connect us to nature and helps practice self-kindness through exercise, taking time out and grounding ourselves!
Nature and plants can be so healing! Be kind to the plants and they will be kind to us!
Fancy some self-care through creative activities? Art can be very therapeutic and is definitely an act of self-kindness… and you can create for others and practice a little kindness to others too!
Who doesn’t LOVE a petspam?! Pets and animals connect us to nature and kindness in so many ways – get involved! Share your pets, or just join us in celebrating and appreciating others 🙂
Be kind to your bodies and minds! Cooking is not only therapeutic, but we must nurture our bodies and minds to be kind to ourselves. Why not bake a treat for yourself, or for someone else this week?!
Music, poetry, writing, dancing… connects us all and give joy and celebration! Share your performances with us throughout the week and we will share them on Saturday to make people smile and bring a little kindness to people’s hearts!
And relax… self-care and relaxation is so important. It’s tough to do sometimes, but in being kind to ourselves we must try to take care of our bodies and minds. Join Amy in learning how to sleep well!

As well as our social distancing schedule activities we are asking you to share with us stories of how you have experienced kindness, kind acts you are doing for yourself, or for others (we will be sharing ours too!). Just send us your pictures and stories or use #ChilypepChallenge and we will share them to our social media!

If you do one thing this week, practice kindness!
Want to take part?! Send us your pics and stories throughout the week!
