As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, we are attempting to decrease the stigma associated with mental illnesses and also raise awareness about mental health. It is also a month to reach out and let them know that they are important. Therefore, here are 3 tips for you to strengthen your mental well-being!
1. Having a healthy lifestyle 🏃♀️
Having a good physical health will improve your mental health. By giving your body sufficient rest and nutrition, your mind and body will get better at working together to improve your mental wellness! Some habits to lead a healthy lifestyle includes regular exercise, eating healthily, sleeping well and avoiding alcohol and tobacco consumption.
2. Practicing mindfulness 🧘♂️
Mindfulness is the ability to stay and focus your thoughts on the present moment. It is important to know about your own feelings and inner thoughts. It helps you to ground yourself and better manage your emotions and stress. Practicing meditation and journalling are some activities that will help. Here are 10 more ways on cultivating mindfulness into your daily lives! 🙏🏼
3. Taking breaks 🕔
Taking breaks are not necessarily a bad thing. By setting time aside for you to work on yourself, it improves your mental well-being drastically. Slowing down and doing relaxing activities like going for a walk, painting or cycling can help to relax yourself – sometimes the stress can be too overwhelming for the mind and the body! 🚶♀️
