It's no secret that India ranks amongst the topmost countries when it comes to depression. People still think of mental health as a taboo subject to talk about and so it isn't nearly as well discussed as it should be. The rates of depression and anxiety in India are appallingly high. This is why it is so important for people to pay more attention to mental health and take it more seriously. If you're finding yourself troubled and stressed, here are some daily habits you should incorporate in your lifestyle so that you can improve your mental wellbeing.
Stick to a routine - When we don't have a set routine we tend to feel lost and helpless. Try to make a routine and set to it. Eat at the right time and sleep at the right time. Balance your work and hobbies so that you get enough time for each.
Motivate yourself - One of the best ways to improve self-esteem is to motivate yourself. If you can be your own worst critic, why can't you be your own best motivator? So, stand in front of a mirror for at least 5 minutes a day and tell yourself that you can achieve whatever it is that you set your mind to.
Talk to loved ones - Human beings are social animals and staying isolated for too long can also lead to depression and anxiety. So, make it a point to speak to your loved ones at least every few days if not every day. Just having one conversation with them could do wonders to significantly improve your mood and make you feel better.
Be wary of social media - In today's time, everyone is on social media. But while that may be a good thing it can also turn out to be a rather bad thing. From bad news to trolling, social media can also have an impact on your mental health. So, make sure to scroll through social media very carefully. Opt for filters and block anything that could trigger you.
Get enough sleep - You must also make sure that you're getting enough sleep per night which means you must sleep for at least 7-8 hours. Good sleep can help you feel a lot more relaxed and can truly work wonders for your mental health.
