5 Daily Steps to Maintain Mental Well-being



Your mental wellbeing is very important to every aspect of your life!

Mental wellbeing refers to your state of mind - how you feel and how you deal with everyday life.  If you have good mental wellbeing, you feel happier, more optimistic, more confident, more resilient to stress, and more sociable (of course, being an introvert doesn’t mean your mental wellbeing is bad).

Here are a few key controllables that can make a difference to maintaining a positive mental wellbeing:

Exercise

Exercise and physical movement in general, is an excellent way to elevate your state of mind. During exercise, your brain releases endorphins that make you feel euphoric and energized for hours. It doesn’t need to be anything drastic. Even as simple as taking a walk in the park or going for a nice jog can drastically elevate your mental state for the entire day.

Eat Well and Stay Hydrated

Whole, nutritious foods provide the body and brain with the essential nutrients they need to function optimally. This improves your mental state and ultimately makes you a happier, healthier, and more resilient person. A good starting point is to switch just one of your meals for something more nutritious.It's also important to make sure you stay hydrated. The recommendations for daily water intake are: 0.024ml of water per kilo of your body weight

Socialise with Positive People

The people you surround yourself can have a profound effect on your mental wellbeing. If you constantly hang around bitter people with a victim’s mentality, it will rub off on you. On the other hand, if you associate with positive and energetic people, you will undoubtedly become one of them.

Share your Pains

Maybe you’re going through a particularly stressful period at work. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed and not in control. Maybe there are family problems that are downing on you.  Whatever the case might be, it’s important to share these emotions with people and not isolate yourself.

Contribute to Something larger than yourself

Taking part in building or developing something bigger can drastically increase your sense of belonging and improve your mental state. Throw yourself in with enthusiasm, and you’ll be amazed at the profound effect such activity can have on you.
