Mental health is important. It is easy to suggest people to relax and chill in hard situation, but we face the same situation it is hard to apply to ourselves. The best progress happens when you apply what you’ve learned outside that setting, in your real life.This means that you have the power to enact real change in the way you think, behave, and cope on a daily basis. But you need to put in the work. Here are some tips mentioned below that literally works and suggested by therapists.
1. Try writing your thoughts down.
Keeping all the emotion inside you is the worst. Venting out your feelings helps you get out your frustrations. You don’t need to do anything whole day. Just take five minutes and write down your thoughts, feelings, or ideas. This can be helpful if you want to keep track of changes in your moods or behavior over time. Writing have its own benefit as no one is going to judge you and its private.
2. Look for what put you on a positive spin when you are down.
Stress happens with each and everyone around the world. You can take those moments when you’re totally overwhelmed and try to look for the good in them. For example, if you don’t have a free weekend to yourself in the next two months, consider how it’s pretty great that you’ve got such a rich social life these days. In many cases, it’s all about how you view it. Negative thoughts are just a part of life, but they don’t have to consume you. Instead of trying to ignore those thoughts altogether, try countering them with positive statements.
3. Make a list of “your people.”
This is the one of the most important part if you want to stay happy. It works almost every time with me. I have just two people i can count on. But they always take me out of stressful situation. Sometimes, even a two minute talk with your best friend can make you stress-free.
You should know the ones. These are the people you know you can always call, text, or email when you need to feel a connection. By building a list of people that you trust, with whom you can talk to in times of need, you allow yourself a strong sense of not being alone. The next time you’re struggling, check out your list and reach out to someone on it. But you should also learn to fight yourself as when they are busy you have deal with your problems alone.
4. Know Your Personality and What You Love.
When You know what you are and what you love, it’s easier to for you to find sources of good mental health. For example, introvert reading a book and having alone time as opposed to an extrovert needing stimulation from others. Choosing activities that correlate with your personality traits helps retain a mental health balance.
5. Pursue a hobby, or a new activity
Remember your childhood, you use to enjoy one activity more than other. Purse your love for that activity. Participating in activities that you enjoy helps you stay engaged and happy. It keeps your mind occupied and can also give you an outlet to express your emotions, particularly those that you may find difficult to share with others. Hobbies always help you overcome stress and increase your self-esteem.It also increases your confidence in being able to face new situations, new challenges and new people.
6. When you’re stuck in negative thoughts, write down good things.
It’s hard to think of anything else when you’re really upset or depressed, so this helps with broadening your thoughts. Just think of two or three positive things in your life in this moment such as a good trip, a happy child, a nice date, something you’re proud of, someone who loves you. This can help ease your feelings of angst and frustration.
7. Ask for help when you feel out of control.
No one is perfect. There is no one on earth who has the perfect life that is stress free, anxiety or mood swing.
