Tips for Improved Mental Health

  • Mindfulness: Give your brain an opportunity to rest to decrease stress, improve focus and support a healthy immune system. Be sure to prioritize downtime, mindfulness and quiet in your life, even if it’s just a few moments a day. Practice being mindful, slowing down your thoughts and/or meditating on something positive, like the phrase, “All is well.”
  • Breathwork: Feeling stressed? Take a breather! Breathe in for 4 seconds and slowly breathe out. Repeat several times.
  • Exercise: Exercise is highly connected to mental health, so look for ways to incorporate more movement into your days. For example, take a brisk 10-minute walk to step away from stressors and clear your mind.
  • Sleep: Good sleep is a foundation for mental health. If you’re having trouble sleeping, try cutting back on caffeine and avoiding screens at least 1 hour before bedtime.
  • Fun: Look for opportunities to have fun! Having fun gives your brain a break from stress and worries and can help remind you of all the good things in life.
  • Interpersonal connections: Stay connected to people you love through phone calls, text or video chats.
  • Nutrition: Be mindful of “unhelpful coping strategies” like smoking and drinking—try to keep them to a minimum.

If you feel overwhelmed or unsafe, seek help from a local mental healthcare provider.
