‘Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.’ Winston Churchill.

Whether you feel that time has flown, or time has dragged, we are already on week three of the holidays, and this week we are focusing on the word COURAGE.

It’s often easy to think that you’re not brave if you feel fear, however, we believe that it is courageous to be able to act despite fear. Often being scared and pushing yourself to rise to a challenge can have a positive impact on your mental health and encourage you to push yourself further.

If you are struggling, we find setting goals helpful. Set yourself some challenges to overcome things that worry you. Don’t worry if you don’t achieve these right away, often setting the goal can be the first step to showing courage.

Here are some examples of some challenges you may find useful. Remember to keep them achievable, you can build up to bigger things as you gain confidence.
