October is Mental Health Month! 


This year, we celebrate the theme of “tuning in” to your mental health, and to the factors that may be impacting upon it. What exactly does this mean? 


Put simply, tuning in means being present. It means that you aware of both what is happening within yourself, and what is happening in the world around you. It can help to build awareness of your thoughts and feelings, identify negative thought patterns, assist you in making positive choices, and build positive connections with the people around you, as well as outside influences. 


How can you practice tuning in? 

  • Tune in to yourself – how are you feeling? What can you sense in the world around you right now? 
  • Tune in to others – consider how others around you might be feeling, and how you can connect with them
  • Tune in to your environment – what is happening around you, and how can you engage with this? 


Looking after our mental health is vitally important when treating acute and chronic pain and injuries. Having poor mental health can be associated with poor sleep, increased inflammation within the body due to high stress, and reduced motivation to exercise. All of these things impact upon our recovery from injury.
