Simple daily steps

Here are a few simple things you can do daily to help keep your mental health in check.

Stay active

Each day, take a break from your technology and step outside. According to the NHS;

Being active is not only great for your physical health and fitness. Evidence also shows it can also improve your mental wellbeing by:

  • raising your self-esteem
  • helping you to set goals or challenges and achieve them
  • causing chemical changes in your brain which can help to positively change your mood

So take time out of your busy schedule, switch off from technology and take a breath of fresh air and explore your local area.

Stay connected

Relationships are so important and it’s important to keep connections with your friends, family and colleagues. Here are a few things you can do to stay connected:

  • Plan a time in your day to call a friend, family member or even a colleague.
  • If you’re working from home, keep in regular contact with your colleagues.
  • Connect with someone every day, over text, phone etc.

Don’t be afraid to express how you’re feeling to someone, they can be there to offer support and a friendly voice.
