I have had a tough year.
Yes, I admit. I have had a tough year.
I believe, we have all had a tough year or two not just due to the pandemic and the frequent lockdowns but, even, as a whole, there have been quite a few disturbing events in the recent past.
I, for one, have found myself struggling with my mental health quite a few times in the recent past. Anxiety about my job, relationships, and, even, life, in general, has been at an all-time high. I can see the kind of negative effect my anxiety has had on my overall health.
And, it is time to make a change.
My New Year’s Resolution for 2023 – Prioritizing my Mental Health
I believe that health should always be a priority but the COVID pandemic has further forced me to take a hard look at my health – both physical and mental. And, I can see that there is a lot of scope for improvement, especially, when it comes to mental health.
So, my only resolution for this year is to look after my mental health.
Why mental health should be everyone’s priority?
If you are dealing with mental health issues as well, it is high time that you resolve to make a change. Mental health must be everyone’s priority because it will allow you to –
- Deal with the stresses of life in a better manner,
- Create and enjoy healthy relationships,
- Improve your physical health as well, and,
- Achieve your full potential and some more.
3 Simple Ways to Take Care of Your Mental Health
If you are struggling with mental health issues as well, then here are 3 simple yet profound ways in which you can make a positive change in your life –
- Find at least one person with whom you can talk freely about anything and everything on your mind. It could be your partner, parent, friend, or, even, a colleague at work. The idea is for you to have at least one person in your life with whom you can share all your problems. It will help to unburden your mind.
- Indulge in a relaxing activity – better yet, make it a hobby. There are lots of activities that can instantly relax and calm you down, such as – knitting, walking, painting, swimming, or, even, cooking. Find that one thing that works for you and try to include it in your daily routine. It will make a big difference.
- Talk to a professional therapist or counsellor. These are trained, qualified medical professionals who can help you in the best (and, quickest) way possible. If nothing else works, it is best to consult with a therapist and bring your life back on track.
