Abbie begins her video series by introducing the subject of wellbeing and why it’s important to look after ourselves and practice self-care during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Hot Cross Bun

In this Easter themed video, Abbie discusses her Hot Cross Bun analogy and how negative thoughts can spiralize. Understanding how this happens helps us combat negative thoughts, something that’s very important during the lockdown period.

In this insightful video, Abbie talks us through how to deal with worries by giving yourself a small amount of time a day to think about them and work through them. Abbie also helps us to think about solutions to our worries in a calm way to stop us from getting overwhelmed and anxious.

A Good Night's Sleep

When was the last time you had a good night’s sleep? Abbie reminds us why this is so important, something we don’t always prioritise, especially during the lockdown! Abbie talks us through the different sleep stages and gives us her top tips to making sure we sleep well and develop a relaxing evening routine.

The Wellbeing Box

In her latest video, Abbie reminds us that an important part of self-care during lockdown is doing things we love. A wellbeing box is a box where you keep as many different activities in as you want, so when things get difficult and overwhelming, you can turn to the box for support.
