A message from us

For the first time ever we are taking a break over the festive period and so we will be closed from 22nd December 2021 until 5th January 2022. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support whether it be a donation, purchasing a badge, a like, share or comment on our posts. It really does mean the world to us. All of this enables us to reach more people.

All of us here at Frontline19 wish you and your families a peaceful Christmas and new year. We will be thinking about you all. 2022 will continue to bring challenges but we have even bigger plans and as always we have your back.

With love and best wishes for the festive season, see you in 2022!

Name one thing ⬇ ...

How you speak to yourself matters. Here's why ⬇

Self-talk is your internal dialogue. It’s influenced by your subconscious mind, and it reveals your thoughts, beliefs, questions, and ideas.

It can be both negative and positive. It can be encouraging, and it can be distressing, and can therefore impact your health and wellbeing. 🍃

Positive self-talk can enhance your performance and general well-being. Adopting a more optimistic outlook can also have the following effects on your health:

✨ increased vitality
✨ greater life satisfaction
✨ improved immune function
✨ reduced pain
✨ better cardiovascular health
✨ better physical well-being
✨ less stress and distress

Worth looking into right? 🤩

So if you believe your self-talk is too negative, or if you want to emphasise positive self-talk, you can learn to shift that inner dialogue, starting with adopting the changes outlined in our above post.


Q: What changes have you made to your self-talk that have helped improve your life? Share with us in the comments 👇

Today is dubbed 'Blue Monday' after researchers found that around this time of the year, people are at their loneliest, debt levels are at their highest and the weather is at its worst. 🌧

A survey by the @coopuk found that 26% of British people claim that this month is when they feel the most isolated.

Whilst we may not have control over these factors, we DO have control over what we do and how we take care of ourselves.

With this in mind, we have created 'Mental Health Bingo' - a selection of daily tasks to guide you over the next few weeks and to see you through the remainder of January.

The tasks have been carefully chosen to help promote your health, mindfulness and mental & physical wellbeing. 🌈

Here's what to do:


✅ Complete one section every day - starting today.
✅ Once completed, tick the box (this can be printed or saved to your phone to track your journey)

📅 Tasks can be completed in any order

Which task are you most looking forward to? ⬇ 💙

🗂 We can't be the only ones with 2735 tabs open on our computer, not to mention the tabs open in our minds.

With so much happening around us, in all the different aspects of our lives, and outside of it, are we taking enough time to 'close the tabs' at the end of our day?

Today, take some time to do this. 👇


Tonight we challenge you to do 10 minutes of meditation or mindful breathing (there are lots of awesome apps that can assist with this - @headspace, @calm etc) and see how you feel the difference. 🧘

🗣️ Tell us in the comments, what wellbeing exercises do you do that have improved your life? ⬇️
