Mental health is just as important as physical health, so here are a few tips for maintaining a positive mental attitude…
1. When you send out positivity you get it back
If you start your day worrying about being late for work or complaining about the rain then you’re setting that as your outlook for the day and you’ll get negativity back. Send out positive vibes and you will get them back.
Smiling releases endorphins which help to reduce stress and improve your mood, so it is great for your mental health. A good laugh is also a must. Text the girls and invite them over for a night of Ben and Jerry's and Bridget Jones!
3. At the end of each day, list the little things that made you happy
You will be surprised how many positive things you can find in a bad day. Whether it was your new pet puppy, your dads cheesy jokes, or a mug of hot chocolate, appreciate the little things.
4. Read quotes
Pinterest and Instagram are great for this, familiarise yourself with inspiring quotes to motivate yourself. Even share them with others so that they can do the same.
5. Visualise the positive outcomes, not the negative
Everything happens for a reason, so if today doesn’t seem like your day, learn from it and start again tomorrow.
