STOP SACRIFICING YOUR MENTAL HEALTH FOR OTHER PEOPLE.

It means setting boundaries around what you do for others when your own healing and progress is being stunted. It means not letting the behaviour of others impact you negatively. Is this easier said than done? Absolutely, but it’s important to recognize how different people affect you, so you can make the decision to create and maintain the necessary boundaries to protect your mental health or let them go.

Exercise
Any sort of physical activity raises endorphins and serotonin levels. This can improve your emotional state.

Limit alcohol
Alcohol may temporarily boost your mood, but the feeling will quickly wear off, leaving you more anxious and depressed than before.

Get enough sleep
Sleep is important for emotional health. It’s even more effective if you plan your bedtime for roughly the same time every night. Aim for eight to nine hours of sleep every night.

Connect with a trusted friend
Talking face to face with a friend is a wonderful way to relieve stress. The person listening doesn’t necessarily have to fix your issues. They can just be a good listener. A trusted friend or family member can listen without judging you.

Take a break

Everyone needs a break at some point.
