5 Self-Care Tips for Mental Health Awareness Month

May 21, 2024

1. Rise and really shine

Hitting snooze might seem like a tempting extra few minutes of sleep, but it often leads to a groggy start and a rushed morning. Instead of hitting snooze, embrace the opportunity to kickstart your day with intention. You’ll find that starting your day on the right foot sets a positive tone for the rest of the day ahead. So, resist the urge to hit snooze and seize the day.

2. Have an attitude of gratitude

Grab a notebook and write everything you’re thankful for in a gratitude journal. It can be as simple as a warm cup of coffee or a sunny day. Research has shown people who write in a gratitude journal regularly tend to feel happier and less stressed.

3. Tune into good news

Nowadays, it’s almost impossible to ignore the negative news circulating in the media and it can be overwhelming. But, there are also a ton of good things happening! Subscribe to channels that share good news stories for daily doses of positivity on your social media timelines.

4. Breathe in, breathe out, repeat

Meditation allows you to take a moment to pause, breathe, and relax which is extremely beneficial for your emotional well-being and overall health. Practice meditating to cope with stress and find balance throughout the day.

5. Catch quality Zzzz’s

Sleep is important to your brain’s performance, mood, and physical and mental health. The blue light from your phone can disrupt your body’s melatonin production and circadian rhythm. Instead of scrolling, read a book to wind down before bed.
