Dr Sarah Vohra aka The Mind Medic re-joins me on the podcast to talk all things mental health, and how we can use our 5 senses to recognise and resolve the things that trigger us most.

On today’s episode Sarah shared some amazing advice around healthy social media use, how we can heal our body image and tactics for dealing with worry.
Traffic light model: encourage kids from a young age to score their mood on a traffic light to let you know how they feel.
Mirror check – look in the mirror and although you may see the negatives, challenge those with a positive thought about yourself for each negative one – think about what your body can achieve that day and what positive traits you have.
Ps – problem solving worries, a worry that you can solve.
Mn – might not worry, a worry that doesn’t have an obvious solution. Acknowledge that it might not be the time to worry about this.
Set a worry curfew and think about what worrying about those things at that time might have got in the way of, get in control of when you worry and when you move on.
Be consistent when the same might not worries come up
Will this worry serve me or not?
Think about who it is that we choose to follow, are they inspiring, motivating or educating you?
Think wish a critical eye whether your social media space reflects your real life experience and interests
If an account doesn’t make you feel good – unfollow or mute
Another issue can be the pressure to post
Quit the refresh – cut the times when you go on unnecessarily
