4. Do something for yourself
Whether it’s a hobby or learning something new, make sure to take the time to do something you enjoy every day. Even if you spend 30 minutes doing this, you can help improve your mental health and well-being.
5. Get a good night’s sleep
Sleep is so important for many reasons. When we sleep, our body recovers and resets. Good quality sleep can make a big difference in how we feel mentally and physically. Aim for 8 hours of sleep a night. To help, try turning your phone off 30 minutes before you go to sleep to allow your brain to relax.
6. Reframe unhelpful thoughts
Often the way we think can have an impact on the way we feel. Negative thoughts can become negative emotions. When you can recognise these negative thoughts, you can take steps towards thinking about things differently.
7. Be present
We often worry about the future and ‘what if’, this can cause us to worry about things that we often have no control over. Try and be in the present and you will gain a greater understanding and perspective of your feelings and emotions.
