Everyone feels low at some point, which is completely normal. However, for some people, these low feelings stick around and they may need a bit more help to feel better. You may begin avoiding activities you previously enjoyed or avoiding friends or social situations. We understand it can be hard to know what to do when you are going through a rough patch but you deserve to feel better. Try talking to someone you like and trust, like a teacher, relative, counsellor or friend.
- Distract yourself – Why not try exercising, meeting up with friends, doing something creative or listening to music you enjoy
- Try improving your lifestyle – Perhaps try eating more healthy food and getting more sleep
- Work on your confidence – Try writing down things you like about yourself or things you are proud of
