Fall back in love with yourself

4 February 2019

With more and more people including everyone from infants to the elderly suffering from depression, we wanted to talk about the stigma associated with mental health and depression in particular.

With February being the month of love, we wanted to cover the affects of depression and help people recognise some of the signs. It’s also not just the person who is struggling from a mental health condition, that is feeling deflated - it’s those close to that person – friends, family and loved ones.

Life can be hard, it can wear you down and some days are harder than others – this is the case for the entire population, no matter if they suffer from depression, anxiety or not – so don’t be too hard on yourself.

Depression is a common mental health problem that can cause people to experience low mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration – if you are feeling any of these then listen up!

Everyone should feel loved and it starts with loving who you are!

Here are some tips on how you can do this with the help of the Alhambra Shopping Centre:

Take some time out for you – by visiting one of our eateries you can enjoy a nice cuppa and a piece of cake whilst loosing yourself in a good book! We have Urban Deli,Café Moda and Massarellas alongside Hot Jacks if you fancy something yummy on the go.

Jasmine’s beauty bar could help spruce up your personal appearance, whether it be eyebrow and eyelash enhancements including threading, waxing, tinting or extensions. Jasmine also specialises in henna tattoos should you want something a little different.

Treat yourself to a pamper night at home – purchase some yummy smelling bath goodies from Bodycare, a face mask from Savers, a new nail varnish or two from The Makeup Stall and a different fragrance from The Perfume Shop to leave you feeling and smelling wonderful!

Treating yourself to a new outfit can put a smile back on your face, we have a great selection of fashion focussed retailers here in the Alhambra for all the family!

Next, Select, Yours, Bonmarche, Primark, TK Maxx and Roman are just a few to mention alongside Shoe Zone and Lucky to finish off the look with a great pair of shoes and handbag!

Finally, if you visit Socialites in the centre, they are now selling CBT (Cannabidiol) one of over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. Vaping CBD is currently being studied in relation to helping with anxiety and depression.

Coming soon!

We will be launching a campaign shortly inline with health specialists, emergency services, community groups to create a safe place for people suffering from depression or other mental illnesses to come and take 10 minutes out, sit and think or talk to a professional about how you are feeling.

We will be posting more information in the coming weeks on our website and social media platforms.

Mind, the charity raising awareness of better mental health – has centres across the UK – find what is available in Barnsley here.
