Mental Health Tips

Updated: Jan 16

Mental Health Matters, Tips for tending to your thinking mind in a nourishing way.

According to Mental Health American "The number of people screening with moderate to severe symptoms of depression and anxiety has continued to increase throughout 2020 and remains higher than rates prior to COVID-19."

These types of mental strains are common and can feel like an internal hell to those suffering with them. Many sit with their symptoms and don't ask for help or do seek help but are placed on waiting lists, struggle with co-pays and schedules conflicts. Because of all of this addictions, trauma responses and unhealthy coping mechanisms rule the roost when people just can't deal mentally/emotionally.

I'm talking about this because if you are reading this and are suffering I want you to know that you are not alone. Over the past 20 years I've learned natural ways to combat symptoms of anxiety and depression in myself. I'm going to share the top things I practice in my own life to stabilize and nourish my mental health.

1. Laughter. 2. Play with children. 3. Writing. 4. Singing 5. Time in nature. 6. Breathing fully and mindfully. 7. Moving my body- yoga poses, walking, dancing, cardio. 8. Resting my body- naps, adequate sleep. 9. Being mindful of what I am taking in- food, social media, news, tv, music, conversation- and noticing how it affects me. 10. Noticing the state of my internal climate-aka being aware when my mindset turns negative/dark, when I feel like I'm spinning my wheels or am engulfed in heavy emotions- I learned how to reach out for help from my closest support people.
