Can you inherit someone else’s trauma?

What are we looking at this week?

The journey towards better mental health and wellbeing can be a long one, and it can be easy to feel impatient.

This graphic, shared as part of a LinkedIn post by Liz Fosslien, Head of Content at Humu, reminds us that small steps quickly build into a lot of progress, and big change, over time. Taking even a small step each day is progress that you can be proud of.

Visit I Am Here and benefit from the help and support which gives us the resilience and self-compassion to appreciate the small steps.

In this podcast, Tim Ferriss (of hugely popular The Tim Ferris Show) and Paul Conti, MD, discuss what trauma is, how it works, and how we can heal from it. Want to know how?

Remember I Am Here’s key message: it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help.
