New Year Resolutions to Take Care of Your Mental Health

-

- Advertisment -

Generally, New Year’s resolutions fall along the lines of traveling or losing weight, but the most important thing that is often forgotten by people is prioritizing their mental health. According to a recent study, more than 30% of Americans go through some kind of moderate to severe symptoms of depression and 38% of them also suffer from below-normal symptoms of anxiety. This means that one-quarter of Americans are struggling with poor mental health, thereby making it one of the biggest health factors in the nation.

If you search the web, you will get several self help articles on mental health but if you’re not big into reading, or you’re simply overwhelmed and anxious, here are a few simple steps that you can take to do on your own. This can have a massive impact on your life.

#1: Prioritize your ‘me time’

Self-help has also become a buzzword, which is for a very good reason and this is of crucial importance. Make sure you put an emphasis on you. Your first priority should be ‘me time’. Carve out time for all sorts of enjoyable activities even if it means half an hour everyday in the morning. Use this time for things like exercising and meditating. Similarly, you can take a bath in the evening or enjoy an interesting book.

#2: Self-love is important

Although there are several among us who are of the opinion that self-love is narcissistic, this is not true. You need to know that in order to be happy with your own self, it is important to practice self-love. No, this doesn’t mean that you have to keep blowing your own horn but it means telling yourself positive thoughts everyday instead of focusing on the negatives. You know the saying: keep a positive mindset. There’s a reason why everyone says it. Keeping a positive mindset is crucial.

#3: Workout or exercise everyday

We all are aware of the advantages of exercise and how psychological and physical wellbeing is attached to good health. Hence, you should make exercise a non-negotiable part of your regular routine even if you may have planned for a busy day. Even if you could do half an hour of exercise to pump up your heart rate, this too would have a good impact on your body. The endorphins would be pumping, which has been proven to lead to a more positive state of mind.

#4: Watch your nutrition intake

The state of the world, and in particular America, is sorry. Sorry may not even be the word. It’s dangerous and irresponsible. The amount of junk food available and consumed is terrible. While we can clearly see the physical impacts of bad nutrition habits in America, we are starting to take notice of the mental health effects poor nutrition is having on America. We wouldn’t be surprised if scientists came out and said that the number of mass shootings in America has somewhat to do with poor nutrition. Nutrition has a huge impact on your mental health and hence you should ensure fueling your body with the right level of nutrients. The bottom line is that there is a big link between proper diet and your mental health.

Therefore, when you’re wondering about how to take care of your mental health, you could take into account the above listed steps to get back on the right mental track.
