Mindfulness Encourages Mental Wellness

It can be hard for many people to even consider mindfulness, because for so long, so many of us have pushed away our reflective thoughts and true emotions to get through the day.

Yet, mindfulness is a good thing, not a bad thing and can comprise of:

  • Focussed breathing methods
  • Guided imagery
  • Noticing each and every move you make
  • Putting down your phone and being in the moment.

Recognising your emotions are valid and finding ways to express them in a healthy, liberating way, is one of the first steps to looking after your mental health.

Consider reaching out to a trusted loved one or mental health professional to lessen your mental load.

Self-Care Strategies

Deemed the ‘pleasurable part’ of mindfulness, self-care is a fun must for physical and mental wellness.

Here are some examples of self-care, but you do what you love the most:

  • A beautiful bubble bath
  • Gentle or vigorous exercise (whatever benefits you the most)
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • A catch-up with loved ones (in-person or virtual)
  • Re-watching your favourite sitcom, romcom or feel-good show or movie
  • A walk in the park
  • Switching off the screens and being in the moment
  • Knowing when to say ‘no’.

Remember to be kind to yourself, even more so during times of anxiety, stress and isolation caused by pandemic restrictions.

Everybody handles and deals with modern day stressors in their own way. Implementing self-care strategies into your life, whenever need be, can be achieved by all.
