With the increasing professional pressure, and struggling with prioritizing relationships, and well-being, we often forget about our mental health and suffer with bi polar disorders.. Avoiding our joy, and priorities lead us to suffer at last as mental health is the easiest that is neglected. We keep on having millions of thoughts running in our minds but we neglect these thoughts of self-care which seem to be very small initially but in long term, impact the overall health of the human.
Ask yourself: Is mental health important for your happiness in the long term? Obviously, we all know the answer but often ignore it with our daily chores. Protecting our well-being and growing as individuals is deeply personal. It requires us to be in touch, check in with ourselves daily and be open to whatever we may feel or need to feel less stressed, more fulfilled, and generally at ease.
Let’s discuss the habits in details-
Below are some of the healthy mindful habits for the betterment of our mental health-
Meditation is exploring yourself with no final destination and unaware of what exactly are we looking for. Our mind is a magnet of thoughts and has unique abilities which store all the moments and when we meditate we encounter these for better clarity.
Focus on the present
Opportunity knocks on our doors every moment and each day is a new beginning to learn and grow. Don’t wait for the right moment, make the most of the time you have today. We generally stay busy planning our future, worrying about our past experiences, and making mistakes in the present due to negligence which is a vicious repetitive cycle with no fruitful results. Keep reminding yourself today is all you have in your control and work to make the most out of it.
Reframe Your Thoughts
Our thoughts are the most powerful weapon that can either help us grow or block our growth. You must have also experienced the moments when a thought strikes and you just stop. Negativity is easily influential and daily, we encounter multiple choices but the difference lies in how we pursue them. The only key to a positive mindset is to start slow and with baby steps and whenever negativity hits you, stop and think about how things can go right.
Try Mindful Eating
Stress eating looks very relaxing when we are worried or in the cocoon of our negativity. But, here is where the control game is. If we can manage what, when and how much we are eating, we get the energy for our other decisions as well. Also, healthy and mindful eating provides the energy we need to go through the day and not get distracted and stressed with hunger ending up loading a lot of calories and feeling sluggish.
Be Kind to Yourself
Trying to maintain our relationships with others, we often ignore our relation with our own self. We keep on adding taxes to our daily stresses by judging and questioning our own selves. The least we can do to manage our mental health and keep ourselves healthy is by being kind to ourselves, reminding you that you are enough and you deserve to be happy.
Apply Mindfulness to Your Relationships
Before being too hard on yourself, start being mindful with your relationships. We often start to demand from others to be available both in personal and professional life. It’s too much to expect from other people and tends to make the relationships stressful. Start to observe yourself and your actions and try to have conversations instead of holding grudges against others. See good in others and focus on positivity and discuss with others to have healthy relationships.
Busy with our day to day life nowadays, we neglect organizing and cleaning up our space. We keep on carrying our past with us which hampers our present activities. Often forget where you kept your belongings, and then stress about them. Piling a lot of stuff on our head with current life stuff kills our happiness. It’s time to ask yourself now, does this bring happiness to me now? If yes, then prioritize them to clear up your space to welcome new things.
Connect With Nature
The most difficult task is to calm our mind with running thoughts, our personal and professional tasks and maintain our mental health. Nature proves to be one of the best way to calm ourselves as it lights up our mood and helps us reduce our frustration and self- doubts bringing a positive mindset.
Try a Sleep Scan
We don’t consider sleep as an integral part of our daily routine but it plays a major role in our health. Our thoughts keep on running when we lay in bed at the end of the day, which leads to undisturbed sleep. Try deep breathing and relax your body to have a fresh start to tomorrow.
Mindfulness is a daily necessity instead of implementing it sometimes. Practicing mindfulness daily helps it to get in our routine and come naturally. You need to be focussed and determined to take charge of your mental health.
