Improving your mental health

There are many different ways to improve your mental health and  your life.

 

Talking

We would say this bit only because we know it helps. Talking to a mate. colleague or us can make a big difference. You will be surprised who has also experienced similar situations or feelings.

 

Visit your Doctor

Its an important step to take particularly if your are really struggling or have been for a long time. We know its not easy but you will not be judged and your Doctor will understand and can help. They meet with people every day struggling with their mental health

Medication

Prescribed by your Doctor and can really help in many cases. Whilst there is still a stigma attached to taking 'happy tablets' there really shouldn't be and well monitored course can really make a positive difference.

 

Counselling

Its not all about tears, tissues and lying down on a couch. The right counselor for you can help you process your thoughts so you can manage and put things in order. Counselling can be arranged via your Doctor or you can go private.

 

Physical Activity

Can sound scary especially if you don't currently do any but it can be one of the most beneficial methods.It doesn't have to be full on power lifting or even a gym membership. Just a walk, gentle jog or a bike ride are good enough, particularly to start with. Physical activity can also bring added benefits such as socializing and fresh air.

Healthy diet

A good healthy diet can improve your mind especially when its a long side physical activity. Reducing  or quitting alcohol and smoking will really help.
