4 Self care tips

 
 

As you guys all know Hectic Nine 9 is all about mental health and spreading mental health awareness to as many people as we can. A big part of mental health awareness is being able to take care of your own mental wellbeing. So in that spirit here are a couple of tips to help you take better care of your own mental health.

  • Affirmations

The first step in creating affirmations is to clarify your intentions. It might feel a little silly but there is something about looking straight into the mirror and saying, "I love you. You're worthy. You deserve greatness." You’ll be shocked at what a huge change these positive phrases can bring about in your life.

  • Crying

Crying seems to have negative connotations in modern society, especially for boys. If you cry you might be thought of as “weak” or “not manly” but this could not be less true. According to psychologists the humans’ ability to cry has survival value; it relieves stress, lowers blood pressure as well as removes toxins from the body. It is incredibly healthy and natural to cry every once in a while.

  • Gratitude journals

Gratitude journaling assists with shifting your mind-set from being negative to instantly positive, because you are able to see what you have in your life. It is important to take stock of your life sometimes and having everything you are grateful for at your fingertips can definitely improve your outlook on life.

  • Sleep more

Sleep is hard to come by sometimes. But teens in particular need a lot of it. If you are not getting enough rest, you are probably not reaching your full capacity. Lack of sleep can cause you to be unfocussed, irritable and generally out of it so try and get your full 8 hours per night.

Hopefully with these 4 tips you will be able to take better care of your mental health and if you already do any of these let us know in the comments how they make you feel or affect your mental health.
