I. Managing mental health and increasing wellbeing
1. Eat Healthily
Eat the rainbow as they say, and increase your well-being through mindful eating.
One of the best ways to keep your mind well is to keep learning and growing. It makes you feel better about yourself as you increase and expand your knowledge and skills.
3. Self-care and pampering days
We all need pampering now and then, but a regular pampering regime enhances one’s overall well-being.
4. Get Creative
Spend an hour a day doing something you enjoy and something that leaves you with a sense of accomplishment or achievement.
Keeping a diary or writing a regular blog can be a great way of getting your thoughts out and letting them go.

III. Seven ways your physical health is connected to your mental health and emotional wellbeing
Many factors in one’s life contribute to mindless eating and inadequate diets including issues like food insecurity. Processed or junk food consumption all the time and micronutrient deficiency, as a result, can increase the prevalence of one’s anxiety and depression.
Lack of water intake or dehydration is directly linked to cognitive impairment, mood swings, and even delirium.
3. Regular Exercise
Regular physical activity is directly linked to reducing the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress as well as increasing one’s self-esteem, resilience, concentration, and also memory.
Sleep problems usually have been directly linked to psychiatric illnesses/disorders such as depression, mood swings, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, and ADHD. An adequate amount of sleep can also help with anxiety, emotional regulation, and mental resilience.
5. Substance use
Alcohol or drug may be used to self-medicate to help cope with depression, anxiety, or other MH concerns, which can increase the underlying risk of mental disorders.
Anxiety and stress brought on by the experiences of an illness can also lead to mental health disorders or exacerbate underlying symptoms related to anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns.
7. Social well-being
Poor social connections or overall social wellbeing is associated with poor emotional health and may even exacerbate mental health conditions such as depression.
