During this stressful time in my life completing my last year of school it is vital for my mental health and wellbeing to put aside time every day to do something for myself. Whether it be going for a walk, going out to Lunch or even just reading a book these are the little things allowing me to keep sane, honestly. As we move through each day, there is always so much going on it is hard to focus on the important elements. It is very important to approach life with a healthy mindset. There are always good things we can turn our attention to, such as focusing intently on the present moment and pouring all of our energy into whatever it is we are doing. When we are focused in this way and really experiencing the present moment, we are able to do things with quality while having the most positive frame of mind.
Here are some alternative tips.
Exercising makes you feel good and can help your mental health. It will also help you sleep better, and get the rest you need.
Lower your alcohol intake
Over use of alcohol can increase feelings of depression.
Try not to dwell on past mistakes or negative things that have happened to you. We all make mistakes and stewing on things or worrying to excess will not change anything. Learn from the experience and be willing to move on.
Be with people you enjoy being with and who make you happy.
Connecting with friends and family
Keep communicating and interacting, and tell those you trust how you are feeling if you’re going through tough times. Talking to others and seeking help early can be very helpful in reducing depression, anxiety and distress.
Positive attitude can lead to a greater sense of wellbeing
Having a positive attitude can
be helpful especially when we are going through tough times. If we can develop a positive outlook on the way we see and do things it can lead to a greater sense of wellbeing.
Wellbeing can mean different things to different people but some common features include having a
sense of purpose, feeling good and functioning well, having control in your life and the options to change things if necessary, as well as achieving goals you set for yourself.
Last year I made the life changing decision to change my life forever and eliminate anything/anyone from it who brought down my happiness or wellbeing. I can honestly say that it was the best move I could have ever made for myself. No…not in the ‘spiritual’, ‘cleansing’, ‘eliminating bad food movement’ way haha, eating whatever you please is part of enjoying and loving life, am I right?. Although ever since this life decision I have been on top of the world and loving my life. I dare you, no I challenge you to refresh your life and eliminate negative energy from it. I would love to hear any of your personal stories or experiences, email me for a chat. XXX
