Tips for Looking After Your Mental Health

Many of us know how to look after our physical health but we are less clued up on how to do this for our mental health. Many things have an impact including our relationships, stress levels, quality of sleep, diet and our level of physical fitness.

These are a few tips to help look after your mind and body:

  • The quality of our sleep is fundamental to how we cope with everyday life – there are lots of practical steps and lifestyle changes we can make to help us get a bit more sleep. Visit One You for suggestions.
  • Keeping active is not only good for our physical health, but also it helps to keep our mind in shape too. Find something active that you enjoy and try to build it into your day.
  • Take control of stress! Too much pressure can take its toll, so whether it is work, relationships or money worries try to take steps to look after yourself. Visit One You and NHS Choices for lots of useful information that can help you take back control.
  • Make time to catch up with friends - our relationships and connections with other people are all important to keeping us well.
