Mental Health Awareness Week: 5 Tips for self care & well-being

Updated: May 18

If you don't know, it's mental health awareness week in the UK. I figured this was a good time to spread some love and talk about the importance of mental health. If you're one of my dedicated blog subscribers, then you know how much I focus on positive mental habits. It's critically important to our lives, yet we don't always cherish our minds the way we should. Life is so busy and it's easy to get caught up in the "haze." Sometimes we are just categorically unaware of what's going on. If we are sad and depressed, lonely or anxious, then it's time to practice some self-love. Here are 5 tips for self-care & well-being for mental health.

1) Meditate

Meditation calms and soothes the mind. Learn to be more present, open your “third eye,” get in touch with your mind, and live more peacefully daily.

Meditating keeps me completely grounded. Whatever struggles I face in life, meditation centers me and changes my mood instantly. I can go from anger or resentment to love and gratitude in a matter of 10 minutes. Being more mindful in your life and taking time to completely unplug arms you with a strength you have never known before. Learn how to meditate and do it now.

2) Reframe unhelpful thoughts

The way we think, feel and behave are linked. Sometimes we develop patterns of thoughts or behaviors that are unhelpful - so recognizing them, and taking steps to think about things differently, can improve your mental health and wellbeing.

As the acronym goes for F.E.A.R., known as false evidence appearing real. We are not our thoughts. Often the anxiety we feel is our fault for imagining imaginary scenarios that as a result bring about more anxiety. By simply making some small changes in our thinking every day we can completely transform our lives the more we make it a daily habit.
