Physical health is important. Looking after your mental wellbeing is just as important. Are you taking good care of yours? Below are some suggestions you might find helpful.
Talk to Someone. This isn't a sign of weakness. It's a sign of courage. You'll probably find opening up to someone will make them open up to you as well. We've all got things that we need to deal with.
If you don't feel you can talk to someone you know, give me a call or send a whatsapp on 07738 570782. I will listen to your concerns, in a non-judgemental way, and will help you find other ways of thinking to deal with the issue.
Keep Active: Regular exercise boosts your self-esteem, helps you sleep better and makes it easier for you to concentrate. Keeping active can reduce feelings of anxiety, depression and negative mood.
Quality Sleep. We sometimes underestimate how important quality sleep actually is. A regular bedtime routine will help, as will steering clear of caffeine, alcohol and technology for at least 1 hour prior to getting into your bed.
Delete Negativity. You can surround yourself with positive people, or negative people. This also applies to watching/reading articles on social media. Watching positive things has a much more positive impact on your mental health than negative ones. Unfollow people/groups on social media that make you feel sad. It's a small price to pay for your mental health don't you think?
Relationships: A healthy relationship, among other things, will include trust, understanding, open communication, respect, no fear of speaking up.
Are you in a relationship where you are judged, put down or shouted at? This is not a healthy relationship and will have a dire effect on your mental health. If your relationship doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Talk to someone about it - take that first step.
