Quotes from You Will Get Through This Night by Daniel Howell
Mental health is the state of your emotional and psychological wellbeing. Just as real as your physical health, but unseen, in your mind.
Mental health is something we all have. Whether you know you’re going through a tough time, or feel like you are fine – it’s always there, invisible, but influencing what you feel, how you react. Sometimes it can feel like a fog you’re powerless to navigate through, but that’s not true. You can be your own light.
- Just because you think something, doesn’t mean it’s real. If you’re thinking that something will be a disaster, or that people don’t like you – these thoughts just come from feelings, they aren’t necessarily facts.
- Feeling bad right now doesn’t mean feeling bad forever. Emotions fade away, harmful thoughts get less powerful with time and bad memories become more distant as you move forward. Change is inevitable, the bad time won’t last.
- It’s good to remember that no matter what is happening and where you are, your breath is always with you. It’s something you can always count on to feel better.
- One of the best ways to learn self-soothing is to nurture your five senses. Tuning into your senses helps you to be present in your own body, helping you feel safe, calm and in control.
- Our minds tend to just keep the thoughts rolling in as soon as we can conceive of something new to worry about, without asking first if we’re comfortable with the information we’ve already been given. It’s typical for a giant tangled ball of stress to formulate in the front of our minds, that at first feels like you’ve been thrown into unmanageable chaos – but if you interrupt the storm and break it down, you may realise there was a lot less to worry about than you thought.
- We spend so much of our lives running away from problems, that if the dam bursts in a dramatic moment, it can be the truth finally setting itself free. It may be upsetting to snap, but the good news is: if you feel like you’ve hit the bottom, the only way is up.
- Each sunrise brings the chance to start afresh, feeling re-energised, with the opportunity to make a change.
- Tomorrow is a new day. Whether it’s literally one night, or some hard times, if you can make it through you will get another chance to try again.
- There are certain things we all can do, things within our control, to make the best of the situation we’re in.
- There’s a link between what we do and how we feel, and this works both ways: the way we feel influences what we do, and what we do directly impacts how we feel.
- The world around us affects our mental health just as much as what happens in our minds. We should do everything we can to make our environment the best space to live in, physically and mentally.
Sleep isn’t just about our physical energy. It’s what powers and regulates our mind, influencing our mood and our ability to cope with life’s challenges.
You are never alone. You are in control of your mental health and you can make a change. No matter how dark it may get, if I can do it, so can you. You will get through this night.
- One bad night’s sleep won’t do much harm, but a few nights in a row can take a toll, as our brain struggles to maintain our energy, motivation and emotional balance.
- You aren’t literally what you eat, but you definitely feel it. What fuels our body also fuels our brains, and mental health.
- Our bodies are meant to move. It makes sense that our brains react to what we think our bodies need – so to change how we feel, sometimes we have to get up and go.
- Whether we consider ourselves social butterflies or socially anxious sloths, humans are built to be social creatures and we have an intrinsic need for connection to other people.
Just remember that your mental health will go up and down with the coming of the tides, and it is okay not to be okay.
- When we notice a negative feeling, it’s usually due to a negative thought. These thoughts are automatic, usually unnoticed by us as they lurk in the background beaming out bad vibes – but we have to learn to catch the moment we start to feel bad and ask ourselves, what did I think that made me feel this way?
- As we learn from the world around us, our mistakes and interactions with other people, we build up a set of beliefs and ideas for how we think the world works and the expectations we have for humanity.
- We feel stressed when a situation demands more of us than what we consider our ability to cope. It is sent to us as a signal, warning us to get out of the situation or to rest.
- There is no right or wrong reason to go to therapy, it’s not about being worthy or unwell enough – any effort to make yourself feel better is commendable.
- Training your resilience can help you to keep going in the face of adversity. It’s more than just bouncing back, it’s the act of moving forward as we grow from our experience.
- Looking forward, it’s important for our mental health and happiness to consider what we want from life in general, and what makes us feel satisfied and ultimately happy.
- Struggling to live truthfully in a world that discriminates against you can be a mountain standing between you and having the good mental health and happiness that you deserve.
- Never forget the value of support. You are not alone in this world and every one of us can reach out to someone for help when we need it.
- The more people who are open about how they feel, the faster we can break down the barriers, and the easier it becomes for others to open up and ask for help when they need it, instead of struggling in silence.
Life is long. What this means is that whilst we shouldn’t feel pressure to turn our lives around right now, we should as soon as we can because we owe it to ourselves to be happy.
