7 Top Tips to feel better
Mental Health Awareness Special
In the occasion of Mental Awareness Week 2019, we put together some ideas for you to be involved in your community and feel good, perhaps by trying something you have never done before...with people you love, or even finding new friends!
Here the list of the best tips to feel Better Together. Be inspired and let us know which tip is more helpful for you!
1. Get moving
You don’t need to run a marathon to feel better. Try a short walk or join a fun class. Learning from a new creative experience can be fun and a brilliant way to reboot your energy.
2. Be kind to yourself
If you’re doing more than what you would normally would, it is a step in the right direction. Keep a diary or tell a friend about your achievements.

3. Everyday things count
Gardening, vacuuming, mopping those pesky chores are good for your mental health too. And there are so many great opportunities. A brilliant, unexpected example?
4. Try something new
Engaging in a new activity, especially involving physical tasks, often helps you concentrate on something else than unwanted thoughts and worries. Volunteering fosters community building, social connections, and improves self-confidence.
5. Eat regularly
Eat a rainbow of fruit and veggies…and cut down on caffeine!
Be inspired by all the Food TV shows we have on this month too.
6. Talk more

7. Celebrate achievements
Give yourself a reward to do well!
