The month of May is a crucial month in the calendar as it marks Mental Health Awareness Month. So, to honour this, we are sharing with you a series of mental health blogs throughout May!
Looking after your mental health doesn’t just matter when you are suffering, the best way to look after your mental health is to do it consistently, even when you are at your happiest. That way, you reduce your chances of facing an all-time-low, which often makes it harder to come back from.
We believe, at StrengtheningHER, that every day you should do something for your mental health, big or small. So, we have put together a list of everyday things that you can do for your mental health!
Cook a nice meal for yourself
Read a chapter of your book
Meditate for at least 10 minutes
Do your skincare routine
Have a warm shower
Go for a walk
Sit outside for 10 minutes
Watch your favourite comfort show
Call someone you love
Go to bed earlier

Have an evening routine
Do some yoga

Start your day with a good breakfast
Make your favourite cup of coffee

Light your favourite candle
Drink a litre of water
Eat at least 1 piece of fruit/veg

Now, we know that many of these are extremely simple, but when you are doing them consciously with the purpose of showing yourself some love and looking after your mental health, the mental and emotional benefits will show!
