Things I'm doing for my mental health

 This post contains affiliate links

Here are some strategies I am using or plan to use for my mental health:

  • Regularly list positive things in general and positive things that have happened lately
  • When anxiety comes- traffic light system! Red- stop, Amber- is this something I can do something about right now or is it hypothetical or something I can't do anything about? Green- problem solve or let it go (imagine a balloon flying away)
  • Also for anxiety: say to self- this feeling is better explained by anxiety. What evidence is there that this will happen? Remind yourself that this is not where you want to go.
  • Stop looking at and responding to messages at all hours
  • Drink lots of water, eat healthy and go outside often
  • Have rest and relax time- this can include watching videos and not stressing about not doing anything, playing a game and enjoying it, reading or just spending time with people and not thinking
  • Spend less time online and more time doing the above things
  • Stop worrying about goals 

Do you do any of these things? If not, would you like to? What strategies do you use?
