Mental Health – Let’s talk about it.

Mental Health is something I think about daily and we all should be doing the same.

I need to talk about my Mental Health in order to balance my mind and feel normal, there’s nothing worse than keeping it all inside. I am a very emotional and empathetic person and because of this I am aware that I need to keep myself away from certain situations. It could be the negative energy from someone at work, or a friend that’s going through a breakup and can’t move on – it sounds crazy but because I am so empathetic it’s almost like I take on their emotions and become them, it’s not healthy.

If your interested, here are some of the daily things I do to balance my emotions and create a positive energy;

Headspace App – it’s a great tool to use in any situation whether it be sleep, anxiety, study or work. All you need is 10 minutes to put your headphones in and take time for yourself to refresh and rebalance.

Calm App – I use this purely for Sleep Stories, I really struggle to switch off at bedtime and the stories really take me to a peaceful place. I love it!

Exercise – so important! Even if it’s 20 minutes a day, it really makes you feel good about yourself.

Another thing that I make sure I do is to appreciate my surroundings, I try to take 20secs each day to appreciate earth and how lucky I am to be alive and healthy.

Tell me, what’s your daily routine towards bettering your mental health?
