Life Tips: Mental Health Checklist

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – The Buddha

Our hectic lifestyle means it’s easy to neglect our wellbeing. Here’s a mental health checklist to help keep your mind in shape.

• A balanced diet gives the brain the fuel it needs to stay healthy
• Exercise increases energy levels and helps manage anxiety and stress
• Sufficient sleep re-energises and helps maintain mental health. So does relaxation
• Mindfulness helps us focus on the present, and away from worrying
• Learn not to talk to yourself in a negative or destructive way
• Work to improve your self-esteem
• Set goals for your mental health
• Talk about your emotions to trusted people
