Try these 10 tips to keep yourself balanced.

  1. Value yourself

Treat yourself with kindness and respect.

  1. Take care of your body

Taking care of yourself physically can improve your mental health.

  • Eat nutritious meals
  • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Exercise
  • Get sleeping 
  1. Surround yourself with good people

People with strong family or social connections are generally healthier than those who lack a support network. Make plans with supportive family members and friends.

  1. Take time to laugh

Watch a comedy (Seinfeld or Friends) or check comedies online. Laughter helps reduce stress and anxiety.

  1. Keep Active

Take 30 minutes to go for a walk  through a park, with your dog, or walk in a nature reserve. Research shows that being in nature can increase energy levels and boost well-being.

  1. Take a break

It could be a five-minute pause.  A few minutes can be enough to de-stress you. Make time for yourself.

  1. Bear the untold story inside you

If you have personal experience with mental illness or recovery, share on 6 minute increments community forum.

  1. Focus on the things you can control

My favourite! Focusing on what we can’t control often takes our energy and attention away from what we can control.

  1. Care for others

Caring for others is often an important part of keeping up relationships with people close to you.

  1. Get help when you need it

Seeking help is a sign of strength — not a weakness.
