We all need to make sure that we take good care of our health. Doing things like eating healthily, taking vitamins, regularly exercising and cutting down on things that are not so good for us like smoking, are all ways that we can help ourselves to be fitter and healthier physically.
However, our physical health is not the only focus – when it comes to health, mental health is just as important and also works with our physical wellbeing – so some of the things we do, such as exercise to make ourselves physically healthier also helps our mental wellbeing.
Taking care of your mental health is important, and in a time when there seems to be a lot of doom and gloom out there, it is even more important. Here are some things that can help with mental health…
Take time for yourself – Making sure that you have the time that you need to focus on yourself doing things you enjoy and things that relax you is important. This might be a walk in the woods or a relaxing bath for example.
Learn more – Learning more about mental health is always helpful to be better at recognising signs and symptoms – there is a lot of advice online as well as mental health training courses like this https://www.tidaltraining.co.uk/mental-health-courses
Tell someone how you are feeling – If you are feeling down or anxious or not quite right, then it is important to tell a health professional or a trusted person who is close to you.
