Mental Health Awareness Week is fast approaching and it’s a huge conversation in the cleaning industry currently. Who would have thought that the tedious task of cleaning that home owners across the country found difficult to even find the motivation to complete, would in 2019 become the sensation of the year?! It’s now more popular to have a cupboard full of neatly organised cleaning products than it is to have the latest shoes or handbag. From seeing cleaning as a job to now seeing it as a fun and rewarding way to spend your time; we know we have Mrs Hinch to thank for that.
Not only has she changed the way millions of people view cleaning but she has also helped so many find ways to get a handle on their mental health. Sophie Hinchliffe (aka Mrs Hinch) is very open herself about her struggles with anxiety and how she copes with days when her anxiety is taking over she picks up her mop or her duster, puts on a great playlist and takes her mind off of it with cleaning.
The Mental Health Awareness Week in 2019 is from the 13th-19th May where this year the Mental Health Foundation charity are focusing on Body Image. This topic covers how we think and feel about the way our bodies look.
Body image issues can face us at any age and in particular Mrs Hinch has been very open with her own body image issues and how at the age of 21 she had a gastric band fitted. In her book Hinch Yourself Happy, Sophie mentions the ‘relentless anxiety’ around her body image. Her openness in both her book and online have opened up a conversation with her and her Hinchers about mental health. She often shares how many thousands of messages she receives with her lovely followers thanking her for helping them with their own mental health issues.
