Other tips to improve your mental wellbeing that you can try include:
Connecting with others
Spending quality time with friends or family, talking to someone about how we are feeling or finding ways to help others can make us feel better. This can be in person, online or over the phone.
Living a healthy life
Our mental health goes hand-in-hand with our physical health. Being active, enjoying the outdoors and having a balanced diet can all help to boost our mood. Also, binning bad habits like smoking, and cutting down on alcohol and caffeine can have a positive effect too.
Doing something for yourself
It’s important to find the time to do enjoyable activities for ourselves. This might be your favourite hobby, learning something new or simply taking time to relax. Figuring out what hobbies or activities make us happy can help boost our mood, lower stress, and build confidence.
It is important to talk about your worries, with family, friends or NHS-recommended helplines.
