Let’s talk about our mental well-being. We should all be talking about it. Talking to our friends, family, or strangers especially if you’re feeling unwell, down, or low.
Many things can make us feel unbalanced in life. Especially at the moment in the covid-19 pandemic. It can feel like it’s just one thing after another. It’s debilitating and may even feel a bit underwhelming. Do you feel like this? How do we deal with this?
Acknowledge how you are feeling
We must acknowledge how we are feeling. These problems might not go away but we need to deal with them inside. Acknowledging how you are feeling can help you understand your mental well-being more. If you keep ignoring how you are feeling it can build up and escalate to much worse.
Finding out what is triggering your mental health
Finding out what is triggering your mental health is really important. A small change could make you feel so much better. The covid-19 pandemic is causing a lot of anxieties for us all. The unknown can be very intimidating and it can really attack our mental well-being.
So what is triggering your mental health? Is it social media? Social media can be great in some ways but it also can also impact our mental health in the wrong way. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with people sharing stories or even comparing yourself to others – it might be time to take a little break. A simple but effective method that can really help your mental health. Like any aspect of our life it needs managing.
Being accepting of situations
Different situations sometimes can not just simply be changed. It is not as simple to change jobs, salary, bills, family, etc but we can change how we react to certain scenarios and accept them for what they are. We have to learn to accept and take help things we can not change.
Self Reflection and Quiet Time
Your mind can sometimes feel like it is buzzing with all different problems. Even when you go to sleep you may feel like you wake up exhausted because your mind is constantly thinking. Try to create a little space in your mind. We can do this by breathing and relaxation. Relaxation and breathing can be very hard to do, especially if you feel like you don’t have the time to do so.
