Mind Talks with That Riverz Gurl: 10 Ways to Boost Your Mental Health

A lot of people don’t realize how important your mental health is. It’s always in constant rotation and a reminder that you need to slow it down a bit. For instance, if you deal with a mental illness and have certain things that may trigger you, try to diffuse the situation or get out of the situation if possible. No one likes to be triggered and for me it’s a very well-known feeling and I start to feel very irritated. Here are some tips to boost your mental health daily.

  • Take a break if needed- We all need to take a break from tasks, from home duties, from work, projects, our personal life and so forth! Just step away for a few minutes or even an hour to recuperate and readjust again.
  • Make yourself a priority- You should always come first no matter what! Can’t no friends, family and others say otherwise!
  • Find purpose and meaning- Do you know what your purpose is in life? What is the meaning behind it? We all have a purpose. Make sure you find it and fulfill it.
  • Get enough sleep- This is something that I have trouble a lot of times because I tend to stay up late to watch some of my favorite television shows and also I do sometimes have trouble falling asleep. Try to set a bedtime goal. If you plan to go to sleep at 10:00 p.m., at 9:30, start to wind things down and get ready for bed.
  • Stay active- Keep an exercise schedule or attend a dance class like Zumba.
