Improve Your Wellbeing: Tips for Mental Wellness from EOHCB
Dear EOHCB Member & Industry,
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO IMPROVE YOUR WELLBEING?
There are lots of things we can do to look after our mental health and wellbeing every day – make a start with these 6 top tips.
Reframe unhelpful thoughts: The way we think, feel and behave are linked. Sometimes we develop patterns of thoughts or behaviours that are unhelpful so recognising them, and taking steps to think about things differently, can improve your mental health and wellbeing.
Be in the present: If we take time to be aware of ourselves and be in the present moment, noticing our own thoughts and feelings, and the world around us, we can gain a better perspective. Sometimes this is known as being more mindful.
Get good sleep: Good-quality sleep makes a big difference to how we feel mentally and physically, so it's important to get enough.
Connect with others: Spending quality time with friends or family, talking to someone about how we are feeling or finding ways to help other people can all help stop you from feeling lonely and improve your mental health and wellbeing. This can be online, by phone or seeing someone in person.
Live a healthy life: Being active, enjoying the outdoors and having a healthy, balanced diet all impact how we feel. Also, binning bad habits like smoking, and cutting down on alcohol and caffeine can have a positive effect on our mood.
Do something for yourself: From enjoying your favourite hobby, learning something new or simply taking time to relax, it's important to do things that make you happy.
