Your mental health is affected by numerous factors from your daily life, including the stress of balancing work with your health and relationships. We have gathered together some ideas to help you stay mentally fit and healthy.
Take time to enjoy the things you love. Take your breaks a little further and spend them doing something that brings you joy. Whether it’s working on a jigsaw puzzle while you watch a favourite TV series, a hike in our beautiful Saskatchewan landscape, or cooking up a favourite dish, spending time on something you enjoy (and doing so regularly), is an important part of maintaining your mental health.
Connect with your loved ones. A strong support system is the number one way to improve mental health. This could be family, friends, coworkers, gym buddies, you name it! Wherever you’re able to build and nurture strong, genuine connections, you can find a strong support network. Notice how you feel after spending time with a member of your support network. Chances are, you feel energized, supported, and optimistic.
Connect with yourself. A key component to mental health is a strong connection to yourself. Process your emotions, take time to journal, connect to something spiritual. Moments of introspection are so important. The more you understand yourself, the better equipped you are to recognize when you need to take a break, do something you love, and lean on the support of loved ones. When in doubt, pamper yourself with your preferred treatment … Sun Tree Spa offers facials, body treatments, massage, manicures and more.
Take a break. We can all agree that the demands of everyday life can get overwhelming at times. A simple way to avoid burnout is to schedule regular breaks throughout the days, weeks, and months of your life. Every day, aim to give yourself a few minutes to take a breath. Every week, spend some time enjoying a hobby or catching up with a loved one. Every year, dedicate some time just to yourself, whether it’s a vacation, a weekend getaway, or just some time off to do absolutely nothing. Taking regular breaks allows you to replenish your energy and refresh your perspective.
