5 Tips to Stay Mentally Healthy and Fit
In this blog, I am going to be giving you 5 of my top tips to help you stay mentally healthy and fit, or simply improving your mental health. So, let's get straight into this one.
Take Some Time For Yourself
There is nothing more important than taking time to work on yourself. Do the things you enjoy, play games, listen to music, do some sports or activities, watch your favourite films and series. Spend time for yourself, so that you can focus on what makes you happy.
Talk About Your Feelings
Bottling things up isn't going to help yourself nor your peers and friends. No matter your gender, background or how tough you may profess to be, don't bottle these things up; it is much more convenient to talk about these issues and feelings to a friend or someone you can trust.
Talking can be a way to cope with a problem you’ve been carrying around in your head for a while. Just being listened to can help you feel supported and less alone. And it works both ways. If you open up, it might encourage others to do the same.
Get a Goodnight's Sleep
We spend about a third of our lives asleep. Sleep is essential - It is as important to our bodies as eating, drinking and breathing, and is vital for maintaining good mental and physical health. Sleeping helps us to recover from mental as well as physical exertion.
Sleep and health are strongly related - poor sleep can increase the risk of having poor health, and poor health can make it harder to sleep. Sleep disturbances can be one of the first signs of distress. Common mental health problems like anxiety and depression can often underpin sleep problems.
Your body releases stress-relieving and mood-boosting endorphins before and after you work out, which is why exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression.
