Mental Health Tips
Here are some tips on how to decrease the amount of stress in your life.

1. Give yourself a pep talk. To keep stress at bay, tell yourself what is right with your life instead of focusing on what's wrong. Put a positive spin on your challenges.

2. Decide to be healthy. The best way to reclaim control of your life is to take charge of your body. Whether it is through diet, exercise, or simply getting a checkup.

3. Focus on the present. Don't live your life in either tomorrow or yesterday. Focusing on this perfect moment, right now, provides an escape from the disappointment of the past and the fears of the future.

4. Laugh everyday. Watch a funny program, tell a joke. Laughter is a proven stress reducer.

5. Meditate. A quiet mind is a stress-free mind, so take a deep breath, quiet your thoughts and let the stress melt away. Even ten minutes of daily meditation will do wonders for releasing stress in your life.

6. Help others. Providing relief to someone else can reduce your own stress, by getting you to focus on others. So see what you can do to help out someone else.

7. Change Something. Doing something different, even a small thing, like clearing your closet of clutter, can reduce your stress.

Mental Health Tip
How to improve your emotional health every day of the week.

Sunday: Relax. Try meditating, taking a walk in a natural setting, or reaching out spiritually through prayer. Quiet reflection, alone or in the company of others, can improve your state of mind, strengthen your sense of self and community, and give time away from a busy schedule to collect your thoughts and reenergize for the week ahead.

Monday: Make a plan. First, prioritize the tasks you need to complete for the week and make a plan for when and how to do them. If you are overscheduled, decide what projects can wait a week or two. If you don't have much on your schedule, plan some activities to anticipate and enjoy.

Tuesday: Surround yourself with supportive people. Make plans with family members and friends, or seek out activities to meet new people, such as a club, class, or support group. Reconnect with someone with whom you have lost touch and create new memories.

Wednesday: Take care of your body. Taking care of your physical self can improve your mental health. Be sure to eat nutritious meals, avoid cigarettes, drink alcohol only in moderation, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep and exercise regularly.

Thursday: Give of yourself. Volunteer your time and energy to help someone else. You'll feel good about doing something tangible to help someone in need, and it's a great way to meet new people who share your interest and compassion.

Friday: Broaden your horizons. Create a change of pace or expand your interests. Explore a new hobby, plant a garden, plan a road trip, try a new restaurant, take dance lessons, or learn to play an instrument or speak another language.

Saturday: Value yourself. Treat yourself with kindness and respect, and avoid self-criticism. Take stock of the qualities you like about yourself, your accomplishments and abilities. Take some time every day to relax, reflect and rejuvenate.
