Do something you didn’t think you could do. Push yourself to do something challenging, and once you’ve done it, you’ll be able to look back and know that anything is possible.

A great example is Vicky, who shared her story with us. She challenged herself to climb a mountain that she didn’t think she could make it up. Even when she wanted to give up, she kept on pushing until she got to the top. From then on, whenever she thought she couldn’t do something, like beating self-harm, she reminded herself of climbing that mountain.

Read Vicky’s full story here.

You could even challenge yourself and help support Heads Above The Waves at the same time. Check out our fundraising page for some ideas!
