Ten Tips for Mental Health
Identify your abilities and weakness together, accept them and do the best with what you have.
Give and Accept Support
Friends and family relationships thrive when they are "put to the test"
Create a Meaningful Budget
Financial problems cause stress. Over spending on "wants" instead of "needs" is often the culprit.
Being involved in your local community gives a sense of purpose and satisfaction.
We all have stresses in our lives but learning how to deal with them when they threaten to overwhelm us will maintain our mental health.
Find Strength in Numbers
Sharing a problem with others who have had a similar experience may help you find a solution and will make you feel less isolated.
Identify and Deal with Moods
We all need to find safe and constructive ways to express our feelings of anger, sadness, joy and fear.
Learn to be at Peace with Yourself
Get to know who you are, what makes you really happy, and learn to balance what you can and cannot change about yourself.
Many of us have difficulty accepting kindness from others but we all need to remember the positive when times are tough.
Make Time for Family and Friends
These relationships need to be nurtured, if taken for granted they will not be there for life's joys and sorrows.
