WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY 2014: 5 Tips For Better Health

Posted by healtheo360 on Oct 10, 2014 12:10:06 PM

 

Just like your physical health, there are ways to improve your mental wellbeing. Having good mental  and emotional health can improve our outlook and physical health.  As we observe World Mental Health Day 2014 on October 10th, here are 5 ways you can boost your mental wellbeing today!

Take care of yourself. Few people are aware of the close relationship between our mental and physical health. Studies that looked at the diets of people with depression revealed that their nutrition tends to be inadequate. Making healthier food choices can, on the other hand, give you more energy, improve your mood and can help your recovery. Read this article for more tips on developing and maintaining a healthy diet.

Manage your stress. In its extremes, stress can be debilitating. Being aware of what triggers your stress and how you react to it can help you map out strategies to deal with it more effectively. Everyone is affected differently by stress and how we react to it may be different from person to person. You may find that practicing relaxation breathing, yoga or meditation help you manage stress better.

Take time to rest. Getting insufficient sleep can have negative effects on your overall health. Feelings of fatigue can overwhelm you and cause further mental or emotional stress, feeding the stress-cycle that can develop from irregular sleep. By setting aside time for rest, you can recharge and refresh your body and mind. If you have a to-do list, consider adding a ‘Do nothing’ and allow yourself time to focus your mind on something fun, like reading or other activities you enjoy doing.

 Make something. Do something. Taking up a hobby or participating in a regular group activity improves your mental fitness, builds your confidence and helps you develop new skills. This in turn gives you a sense of accomplishment and progress.

Ask for help.  I often heard the phrase ‘no man is an island’ said to kids and adults alike when I was younger.  What it means is that we shouldn’t have feel isolated or avoid everyone. Our family, friends or health professionals care for us and we can ask them for help when we need it. Everyone experiences bumps while on the journey of life and the people close to us can help. Sharing what is causing you stress with them can help you by putting things into perspective. This supportive structure made up of family, friends, mental health professionals can give better understanding and compassion for what you're going through. This in-turn can reduce your feelings of isolation, improve recognition of the early signs of mental health problems.
