How to Take Care of Your Mental Health

1. Discuss your emotions - Talking about your feelings might help you maintain excellent mental health and deal with difficult situations.

2. Continue to be active - Regular exercise may improve your self-esteem as well as your ability to focus, sleep, and feel better. Exercise not only keeps your brain and other essential organs healthy, but it also has a big impact on your mental health.

3. Eat healthily - Your brain, like the other organs in your body, need a variety of nutrients to keep healthy and work properly. A diet that is beneficial to your physical health is equally beneficial to your mental health.

4. Drink moderately - We frequently consume alcohol to alter our emotions. Some drink to cope with anxiety or loneliness, but the impact is just momentary.  When the effects of the alcohol wear off, you feel worse because of how it has damaged your brain and the rest of your body. Drinking is not a smart technique to deal with challenging emotions.

5. Maintain contact - Reach out and communicate.  You may also phone them, send them a letter, or chat with them online. Maintain open channels of communication as it's healthy for you.

6. Seek assistance - We all become fatigued or stressed by how we feel or when things don't go as planned.  Recognize that it is normal for one to feel this way.  However if things are becoming too much for you and you believe you are unable to manage, get assistance. Your relatives, friends and people from your community may be able to provide practical assistance or a listening ear.  

7. Take a breather - A change of scenery or speed is beneficial to your mental health.  A simple five-minute break from cleaning your kitchen, a half-hour lunch break at work, or a weekend trip somewhere new. It only takes a few minutes to de-stress and take your much needed alone time.

8. Perform an activity in which you excel - What do you enjoy doing? What activities can you become lost in? What did you used to like doing?  Stress may be alleviated by having fun. Doing something you like suggests you're probably excellent at it, and accomplishing anything enhances your self-esteem.

9. Accept yourself as you are - We're all unique. It's far better to appreciate your individuality than to wish you were more like someone else. Feeling good about yourself gives you the courage to acquire new talents, travel to new places, and meet new people. 

10. Caring for others - Caring for others is a vital aspect of maintaining connections with those close to you. It has the potential to bring you closer together.
