Quick Guide to Mental Health Care

Take care of yourself and get the most from life! Below are 8 basic and practical ways to look after your mental health. Let’s start today!

1. Talk, Talk, Talk

Talking about your feelings isn’t a sign of weakness. Just being listened to can help you feel supported and less alone. It works both ways; if you open up, it encourages others to do the same.

2. Move It, Move It!

Exercise releases chemicals in your brain that make you feel good. Regular exercise can boost your self-esteem and help you concentrate, sleep, look and feel better.

3. Eat Well

Eat three meals a day from a variety of healthy ingredients. Drink plenty of water. Limit your intake of caffeinated and sugary drinks. Avoid too much alcohol.

4. Make Friends

Make time to catch up with your friends face-to-face, give them a call, drop them a note or chat online. Bottom line is, keep the lines of communication open!

5. Do Something You Like

Think about something you like to do or activities that you could lose yourself in. Doing something you like helps to beat stress and boost your self-esteem.

6. Take A Break

Listen to your body. Give yourself some ‘me time’ whenever you need it. If you’re really tired, go to sleep. Quality sleep boosts mental health and concentration.

7. Ask for Help

We are all human. We get tired or overwhelmed when things go wrong. If things are getting too much for you and you feel you can’t cope, ask for help.

8. Accept Who You Are

Being happy with who you are means you enjoy living in the moment. Recognize and accept what you are not good at, but focus on what you do well in.
