Improve Your Mental Health

Improve our Mental Health.

 

Here are a few things you can do right now to improve your mental health.

  • Get outside.

    Turn off the TV, put down the device and head outside. Morning, noon or night just get out into the world. Of course it might be nice to add some Mother Nature to the mix. Go to the park, that open field near by, but get outside a little every day. nature has a way of uplifting your mood.

  • Exercise.

    I know ugh, exercise. But a little goes a long way. Take a walk, ride a bike or do a few push ups. Get your heart beating a little faster, maybe even sweat a little.

    Exercise can help you feel good. Despite how you feel when you are doing it. Get up and move your body.

  • Get some good sleep.

    Good sleep. You need at least seven hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. You really do. Go to bed early. Have a bed time routine. Don’t overdo stimulation before sleep. Get the sleep you need.

  • Breath.

    Several times a day take time to do some slow deep breathing.

    Breath slowing through your nose and slowly out of your mouth. Breath in and out at least three times.

    Feel your body relax and calm your nerves.

    Even better than that learn to sit up straight all the time and breath from your belly. Most of the time we are slouched over and don’t fill our lungs with air and we don’t get rid of the air we have inside.

    Breath in the good air and get rid of the bad. Now say ahhh.

These are really simple things you can do to improve your overall mental health. there is much more you can do to bring positive change in your life. You have to be in control of your health, mental, physical and spiritual health.

Take control.
