A healthy mind brings us closer to a fuller life. So maintaining a balance between what we think, feel and do is essential to enjoy good mental health.
Keeping ourselves psychologically and emotionally healthy also contributes to the way we handle stressful situations, how we relate to other people, and the way we make decisions.
Achieving a balanced and happy life is one of the goals that we can include on our wish list each year. There is always a new possibility to be well, to be grateful for life and health, to pamper ourselves and enjoy the company and affection of our loved ones.
In this list you will find 8 recommendations given by specialists to maintain mental health. These are tips that will help you feel and look good, inside and out:
- Maintain stable sleep routines.
- Cultivate a balanced diet.
- Engage in physical activity.
- Limit working time to what is established. Close your computer and email outside of business hours.
- Carry out activities that are conducive to your well-being and enjoyment. It can be a hobby, a sports activity, developing your spirituality, etc.
- Cultivate affectionate relationships with family, friends or others.
- Avoid excessive screen time, not just for work, but in general. Excessive use of social networks and video games affects your social interaction and takes you away from other pleasurable activities.
- Limit alcohol consumption and avoid drugs. Their use is not a healthy way to deal with symptoms and only increases health risks.
I would also add that it is important to seek professional help when you don't feel well and don't know what to do to improve. A specialist will always be an excellent ally who will give us tools to achieve the well-being that we all want.
