THE ab­sence of good men­tal health can leave ebbs and flows in so many dif­fer­ent ar­eas of our lives.

Men­tal health is some­thing that ev­ery per­son needs to be very aware of.

Here are some top tips to help you keep on top of your per­sonal men­tal health.

FO­CUS ON RE­LA­TION­SHIPS

If you have great re­la­tion­ships with peo­ple around you — friends, fam­ily, col­leagues and more — it can heighten your sense of well­be­ing and in­volve­ment.

Feel­ing con­nected is some­thing that’s re­ally im­por­tant to men­tal well­be­ing.

Take the time to in­vest in your re­la­tion­ships and catch up with your loved ones, or get in­volved in clubs, com­mit­tees, or com­mu­ni­ties — it’s also a great way to meet new peo­ple.

EX­ER­CISE REG­U­LARLY

Ex­er­cise has been shown to re­duce signs of de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety, and along with a healthy diet, is a great way to op­ti­mise fan­tas­tic men­tal health.

Walk, ride your bike or take the stairs where you can.

Join­ing a sports team is a great way to make friends and keep up ex­er­cise while also hav­ing fun and main­tain­ing great men­tal health.

EAT WELL

When you’re fu­elling your body with the right stuff, the hap­pier it will be.

Fill up on healthy food and wa­ter and give your brain the en­ergy it needs to func­tion at its very high­est level.

BE GRATE­FUL

Keep a jour­nal of what you’re grate­ful for and three pos­i­tive things each day.

Take the op­por­tu­nity to count your bless­ings as well.

This is a great op­por­tu­nity to work on your well­be­ing.

LEARN NEW THINGS

This is a great way to de­velop your con­fi­dence, so take the op­por­tu­nity to delve into your in­ter­ests and widen your knowl­edge base.

You could get into read­ing, sign up for classes that in­ter­est you, try a new sport, learn a new lan­guage or try a new art or craft.

GIVE TO OTH­ERS

By help­ing other peo­ple, you can of­ten in­crease your well­be­ing.

Per­form­ing acts of kind­ness and mean­ing­ful work will make you feel good, which can con­trib­ute to a bet­ter frame of mind.

SEEK HELP

If you are find­ing it hard to be happy, cope day-to-day, or strug­gle con­nect­ing with peo­ple, don’t hes­i­tate to see your doc­tor or a men­tal health pro­fes­sional.

There are so many op­tions avail­able for men­tal health sup­port.
