Emerging suicide and depression cases during the lockdown has raised a very important topic which is often and mostly ignored to talk about.
But, with rising awareness, we know how important mental health is.
In this blog, we will talk about the best 5 ways to maintain your mental health.
Start your day with a cup of coffee or Green Tea: Coffee consumption is linked to reducing stress which also helps in reducing the rates of depression.
Avoid taking milk-based drinks in the morning.
Work-Life Balance: During the lockdown, people are trying to use this period as a productive period.
Remember, more work does not mean productivity. Don’t burn out yourself by overloading yourself with work. Take it easy.
Make sure you’re spending time with your family and talk to your friends.
Choose people who are good for your mental health: Choose to spend your time with people who are good for your mental health. Close, quality, relationships are key for a happy, healthy life.
Feeling anxious? Or uneasy? Take a trip down memory lane: I am sure, we all have been there. Go through old photos, videos, the moments you cherish the most from the past. f
Meditate & Exercise: Maintaining physical health is highly important for good mental health.
Meditate. It helps you feel better. I am sure we all are aware of the benefits of Meditation. We will talk about the benefits of Meditation in another blog by completely focussing only on it.
Exercise, since we cannot go out for a jog or walk make an exercise corner and routine at home.
Good physical health = Good mental health
6. Practice forgiveness: Lockdown has given us a chance to be a lot freer than earlier. In this free time, we sometimes tend to Overthink about all the negatives and bad experiences we had in the past.
The best way to come out this “Over Thinking Practice” is to forgive people who did wrong to us.
Bottom line is, maintaining everything in life from diet to physical health, from personal to professional life is the secret behind healthy mind. Maintain everything, prioritise yourself.
