Blog #TehTarik: Improve your mental health with 5 tips and 4 experts

mental health

Mental health has become an increasingly popular topic on social media. But what does it really mean? When it comes to taking care of yourself, your personal practice is going to be a life-long commitment. So here’s your reminder to breathe, take a step back and remember: it’s about what works for you!

We’ve outlined a few friendly tips to help you get started. Make sure to check our recommendations for local mental health speakers and practices to gain the most out of your effort!

1. Breathe and meditate

Inhale for 3 counts – Hold for 3 counts – Exhale for 5

Remember to mind your breathing. Circulating oxygen to your brain, heart and body, breathing has been cited as the #1 tool to maintain calmness and grounding your energy. Set aside 5-15 mins every day to focus on your breath with this practice.

2. Exercise

A great way to practice your breath control is through exercise. Whether you pick yoga, pilates, boxing, jump-rope or any other sport, what we want is to get your blood moving and to release your toxins.

Spare 15-20 minutes in your day and let your body feel alive.

3. Clean up

When you’re facing a rut or mind block, it’s a sign to take a step back and clear your head by taking a walk, meditating and exercising. Another effective method is to clean up and tidy your home or environment.

Good personal hygiene also translates to good mental hygiene!

4. Journal

Journaling allows us to see our thoughts down on paper or screen. Give yourself space to express your deepest and/or strongest feelings, without judgment. Your entries will let you release your thoughts while allowing you to keep track of them.

To make full use of this practice, we recommend following journal prompts to guide you towards a safe and productive outcome.

Here are some local resources that can help you get started on that!
