5 Tips to Kickstart Your Mental Wellness Right Now
Life can feel overwhelming. Different facets of our life can affect our mental wellness in different ways but feeling better doesn’t have to be super complicated.
In fact, it’s often the little things that can have an immediate effect on how we’re feeling, which is why it’s important to take time every day to focus on YOU.
1. Catch Up On The Z’s
Everyone sleeps differently, and only your body and mind know the right amount for you. Make sure that you’re able to rest your mind – the benefits are greater than you might imagine.
2. Eat A Healthy Diet
You’d be surprised at the difference that a healthy, well-balanced diet can make in your mental wellness. Reach for brightly coloured fruits and veggies, satiating fats, and nourishing proteins to feel your best!
3. Stay Active
Whether it’s walking, running, swimming, hiking, playing basketball, or even play-wrestling with puppies, staying active can really help improve how you feel, both physically and mentally!
Stretching offers lots of benefits to your physical and mental health! For example, yoga is a great way to learn mindfulness and calming breathing techniques!
5. Learn About CBT
There are many ways to manage your stress and negative thoughts, however, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a clinically-proven method that is considered the gold standard. The CBT approach looks at the relationship between our thoughts and feelings and helps us to understand why they can influence each other.
