Mental Health And Wellbeing
As most of you know, mental health and wellbeing is a very important part of this blog. As someone who was diagnosed with anxiety and depression, I know personally just how important it is to put ones mental health and wellbeing first. However, that is sometimes viewed as selfish even when it’s not. The truth is, we can only live our best life when our mental health and wellbeing is also at its best.
Today, I decided to share some tips on how I try to look after my mental health and mental wellbeing. I haven’t shared any mental health posts in a little while and wanted to share one today.
Your lifestyle really has everything to do with your mental health and wellbeing. It’s so vital to live a healthy lifestyle. I’ve personally noticed that when I don’t get enough sleep or I eat unhealthy I feel worse. So my first tip would be to try to have as much of a healthy lifestyle as possible. Eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruits while staying away from refined foods. Try to get the right amount of sleep each night. And not at random times of the night. Make sure you have a good nighttime routine because that really helps a lot.
Try to develop some healthy habits. Personally, I find yoga and meditation really helpful. It takes a while for both to really show a positive change but when done longterm it can help a lot with mental health and wellbeing. Another healthy habit that helps me is to take mental health days when necessary so that my body and mind isn’t constantly under stress.
If you feel like your mental health is not doing great and nothing seems to be helping, please don’t hesitate to seek help from a professional. They are trained to help you and find the best way for you to improve your mental health. And there is nothing wrong with needing help sometimes. So if needed, please do speak to a professional.
I hope this post was helpful and informative. I know it’s not easy to change your lifestyle or incorporate healthy habits into it but it’s really worth it in the long run. It really does make a huge difference and will help you feel much better. I say this from personal experience.

I enjoyed these simple tips, I personally find prayer, meditation and yoga very helpful. Apart from that, writing helps me relieve myself from mental restrictions and inhibitions, by writing I mean journaling, blogging, expressing my emotions and feelings. Nature hikes are great for finding my inner peace, I try to do those as much as I can. Meals and sleep schedule is nice to have in place, but most importantly I benefit from the circle of friends who help me feel at ease. It’s probably the best gift I can give myself to promote mental health and wellbeing.
Thank you. Those are all wonderful. I really enjoy time spent in nature too. It’s like a nice recharge. And of course having friends around makes a huge difference too.
best case scenario if we could hike together, talk and make art. painting is also relaxing and therapeutic for me at least
That sounds lovely. I do that with my aunt and uncle sometimes because they live near a forrest. Painting sounds fun. I don’t do much art.
you should try it
I want to, I just never get the time these days.
i hear you
Perfect timing for this wonderful post! Self Care isn’t selfish and needed it we want to thrive and be happy. Magnificent post!!!
Thanks so much and yes exactly, self-care is so vital!
Yes, staying away from bad habits. Really important. I recently find that I have the bad habit of always being attracted to discount books, which can often bring anxiety since the content is not really good for my mood.
I understand how you feel. I personally have a similar issue and have stopped frequenting bookstores for that exact reason.
To add to your Lifestyle tips, I think having a furry friend like a cat is also important for mental health and well being. They can lighten the mood and reduce stress.
I agree with you 😃
Furry friends are great stress buster.
I’ve seen some places that are designed with such themes. There you can spend time with furry friends.
Babies are helpful as well
Yes, there is a cat cafe in my city. You can order a drink and snacks to enjoy then visit the cat area to play with the cats. You can buy cat snacks to feed the cats and even take a cat home (the cats are there to be adopted).
Yes yes 🐱
Yes, I can’t agree more. Unfortunately, I am unable to have a pet right now but I feed strays and that helps since they’re very sweet.
You’re a hero to the strays. They need love just as much as someone’s pet.
Yes, they do and they’re the sweetest.
This blog was the complete extract of therapies. Thank You so much. Many people including me needed this!
Thanks so much and so happy to hear that!
Sweet and simple.
Love the blog ☺️
I agree with these points totally. Mental well-being can be taken care of easily if we start giving attention to ourselves.
Like you mentioned (in your amazing blog), that diet has a lot to do with mental health. Likewise, workout and few other little things can be super helpful.
For example, regular 30 mins walk in nature, 6-8 hours of sleep, reading books, investing in me-time is essential.
For me blogging and workout are very helpful. 🙂
Sending some positive vibes to everyone 🔆
Thank you so much and absolutely agree with you as well. Exercising regularly is really great for mental health.
Nice tips Pooja 🙂 I definitely need to work on my sleep routines. Whenever I neglect sleep I get serious depression spikes.
I love that you included seeking help from a professional. There are times everything becomes unbearable; a professional is always the next best step.
Thanks so much. It’s the same for me when I don’t get enough sleep. Absolutely, sometimes we need a bit more help to get to a better place and that’s okay.
You know I am in the same boat. Walking and meditation help me.
Thanks and yeah both of those are really beneficial.
My 9-year-old has been going through this recently. Most to many days it’s an uphill battle.
Thanks for sharing, Pooja🤍
I’m sorry to hear that but I know things will get better over time. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
The tips are so true.
I’m still working on sleeping the right amount at night tho. I do also find Meditation helpful
Thanks so much and yeah the sleep one is a bit tricky.
I totally agree with your views and would like to add my manta to your views –
Good balanced diet, good sleep, yoga, are all important! but having a positive mindset, following a routine and taking break from the daily pattern of life (mingling with friends) are also important .Hope you agree to my views. Thanks!
This are very important tips too and definitely agree with your views. Thanks.
Couldn’t agree more with this statement – ‘we can only live our best life when our mental health and wellbeing is also at its best.’
Personally, I take long walks by the sea, they really help me fight against stress. Really good article!
Thank you so much! That sounds wonderful, I don’t have any sea or ocean near me but I do try to be around nature as much as I can.
I also love spending time in nature, especially with my family 😊
Love your posts, they are so deep, meaningful, and helpful. Thank you for writing them the way you do.
Thank you so much 😊
Mental Health must be the number one priority! Our minds are our greatest possession; they are precious.
I agree! Often we forget how important our mental health is.
I woke up at midnight for no reason. It is quiet and I feel invisible and without any purpose. I feel like I’ll never sleep again. The supermarket will be open at 7am and I’m out of everything. But I’m too fat to buy anything that I’d like. I think I’ll see if they have a sale on arsenic or cyanide. I don’t know. That might hurt. Maybe coffee and blue cheese. A chicken. A side of beef. A goat. A pizza. A block of Parmesan cheese. I should be dead in about 10 years according to statistics. Why wait. It’s not like I’m going to invent something miraculous. There’s a toast: “To your health”. How many calories in toast with olive oil and garlic and a chicken?
Sorry to hear you have been feeling that way. But I hope you know that even if you don’t invent something miraculous your life still holds a lot of value.
I agree with all the points that you’ve mentioned.
Thank you for sharing, Pooja😊
Thank you so much 😊
Such an amazing post dear friend😊💕
Really so nice information you provide to all of us! Great Pooja👍👏😊🥂
Thank you so much 😊
My pleasure dear and you deserve more than that always🌹😉✌
Thank you. I’ve also noticed that when I don’t get enough sleep or eat well, I end up feeling worse so I’ve learnt to prioritize them
I’m like that too and so I try to eat as healthy as possible and sleep for 7-8 hours.
It’s just recently I started prioritizing sleeping at night, previously I didn’t and it affected my well being a lot. I’m happy I started prioritizing it
Yeah, sleep makes such a huge difference. It’s great you started prioritising it.
My health proved a lot when I slept better.
Yes, I think sleep is a big one. I’ve noticed a big change when I don’t get enough sleep.
I keep ashwagandha available for various reasons, but it is a mood lifter. I just wanted to say have a good day!
Yes, it’s also great for gut health which is what I use it for. Thanks and have a good day too!
Sometimes it’s not this easy. Sometimes people’s brains are quite literally wired incorrectly. It’s not always lifestyle changes that help. Sometimes the only thing that works is medications.
I totally agree. That’s why it’s best to seek professional help. However, not everyone has the ability to do that which is unfortunate.
Simple tips but beneficial
Thank you so much.
Some great tips and things I regularly tell my children. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks so much and that’s great we all need someone to remind us of these sometimes.
Your tips are great!
Thank you so much!
Great post and tips! Mental health is really important and some times even some simple little things go a long way to make us feel better! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much! I totally agree, those small things make a big difference sometimes!
I’m all about simplicity too. I operate on the principle that if it doesn’t make my life simple, it’s not going to work
Yes, absolutely. I’m like that too.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful thought “if it doesn’t make my life simple, it’s not going to work”
Thanks and that’s a great way of looking at things.
Good points… I need to work at the sleeping thing 😊.
Thanks and I think that’s a hard one 😅
Yeah, it’s a tricky one. It helps with my blog writing sometimes though 😊.
Good post Pooja. I’m still horrible at eating right but as for keeping a sleep schedule, I do for the most part. A couple of tips that I also do is live in the present and acknowledge a lot of what I do each day. That way I’m aware of any triggers that might have come up. I also make sure that I do something that I really enjoy at least once a week as an escape.
Those are great tips too. I like to do something as an escape as well and make myself go out and do something at least once a week. I always end up enjoying myself.
Yes that’s good. I was able to do that just yesterday. I went to a nature park that I had never been to before. It was a nice day for it.
Well said and such an important message Pooja! Meditation and yoga are key! 💞
Thank you so much and yes absolutely!
It’s my pleasure always! ❣️
I’ll vouch for these methods! They aren’t simply platitudes, but real tools!
Thanks and I think so too!
Thank you so much for this ❤️ I think it’s also important to know yourself and the things that make you feel bad so that you can intentionally stay away from them.
Thanks and I agree, knowing your triggers helps a lot 😊
Whenever I come back to WordPress I go to your notifications first! Your blogs are always so helpful.
Aw that’s so sweet! Thank you!
