5 Ways to Prioritise Mental Health

Emotional and mental wellbeing is not considered to be an issue of much importance. However, thousands of people around the world are struggling with mental health problems, and do not know how to deal with them effectively. 

Mental fitness plays a significant role in human behaviour, impacting a person’s state of mind, emotions, thoughts, and activities. In other words, if a person is not mentally at peace, it becomes quite challenging to cope with the demands of the modern-day.

Yes, Mental Health Matters, but how do we ensure we are doing the best we can to keep ourselves healthy and happy?

Here are five ways to prioritise your psychological stability.

Cut Out Toxic Influences 

The truth of the matter is that some people are just bad news. Naysayers and Debbie Downers have a way of making you feel that you are never good enough. Over time, this undermines your sense of confidence. If this sounds familiar, you might need to rethink your immediate circle and cut out anything that doesn’t serve your mental wellness.

Get Enough Sleep

Sleep plays a vital role in maintaining your mental balance. Your mind and body are dependent on the amount of sleep you get every day. People who tend to miss out  on regular sleep often find it challenging to perform their tasks effectively, burdened by stress and lethargy. Getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep will keep your mind fresh and healthy.

Make yourself a priority. If something or someone bothers you, move on. Learn to say no when you are not comfortable or happy about something. Partake in activities that make you feel good about yourself. Do not pay heed to people who judge you, focus on yourself and your growth as an individual. Remember, self-care is one of the most important facets of balancing your mental peace and harmony.

Engage in Physical Activities

Participate in physical activities such as:

  • Early morning walks 
  • Swimming
  • Aerobics
  • Zumba
  • Yoga
  • Sports

Physical activity will not only make you feel positive by boosting your dopamine and releasing endorphins but also help increase your energy and make you feel refreshed.

Quit Overthinking

Are you an Overthinker? Well, the 5 by 5 rule states,

“If it’s not going to matter in 5 years then don’t spend more than 5 minutes being upset about it.”

Overthinking will never fetch you a solution to a problem, rather it will make you feel more perplexed and stressed which can have a great impact on your mental stability. Thus, keep your thoughts positive and clear and avoid thinking excessively over anything.
