Good mental health is typically characterised by three main things: the ability to manage a range of emotions – both positive and negative; the ability to build and maintain good relationships; and the ability to adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty.
It’s important to be aware of external influences that can have a negative effect on your mental health and wellbeing, such as work, financial pressures, relationships, bereavements and loneliness. You should look out for any signals that you may be struggling to cope: poor concentration, low mood, lack of energy and disrupted sleep are just a few. These will be different for everyone so you must learn to listen to your body and understand what the triggers are for you.
Mental health is much like a battery. There are things that you can do regularly to top it up and keep it ‘fully charged’ for when you need it most. Alternatively, letting it power-down could mean that you find it empty when you need to rely on it most.
There are a few easy ways to keep your mental health ‘battery’ charged up:
Stay connected – Maintaining good relationships is extremely important for our wellbeing. Spending time with friends and family will not only boost your mood but make you feel more supported too. Opening up to others about how you feel will give them the chance to share a fresh perspective and you may find that those closest to you have been through similar challenges.
Keep active – Exercise is as good for your mind as it is for your body. Even just 30 minutes a day gets the blood pumping and releases endorphins that lift your mood. Fresh air helps too, so a quick walk round the block at lunchtime is all you need to get started.
Eat well – What you eat and drink can have a huge effect on your mental fitness. Without the right nutrients, you simply cannot function properly, and your mental health will suffer. Eating healthily – and regularly – will nourish your whole body and give you the energy you need to get through the day feeling good.
Get a good night’s sleep – Don’t underestimate the importance of good, regular sleep. It is essential for maintaining positive metal wellbeing and a lack of, or poor-quality sleep can affect your mood, energy and concentration levels. Disturbed sleep can also be one of the first signs that something’s not quite right, so don’t ignore it. Start by making a few small changes to your bedtime routine and if your sleep doesn’t improve, speak to a health professional to find out if there is a bigger underlying problem.
Do more of what you love – It may sound obvious but finding what makes you happy and doing more of it will have a hugely positive impact on your wellbeing. Learning a new skill that you enjoy is also a great way to distract your mind from daily stresses and strains, and having something to work towards will help you feel a sense of reward.
Give to others – Acts of kindness can help create a feeling of purpose and self-worth. Taking part in community projects or volunteering with a group will also help you build new relationships, connecting with other, like-minded people.
Take a break – Whether it’s a two-week holiday abroad or ten minutes away from your desk, taking a break gives your mind the chance to rest and recharge. Turn your free time into ‘me time’ by learning some simple mindfulness techniques, such as breathing exercises.
Ask for help – If you feel that you’re struggling to cope, do not be ashamed to ask for help. There are lots of people you can speak to, including your doctor or various support groups. Ignoring the signs and bottling up your emotions will only make them worse and could lead to bigger, more long-term mental health problems.
