Rather than coming up with a list of restrictions and things we need to stop, let's focus on the positive and what we can do.
Building a foundation for positivity and wellness can help you sustain your mental health and overall wellness.
The first and most important part of seeking overall wellness starts in the mind. The mind is at the root of our overall well-being. While for some having good mental health is a process that can involve therapy or medication, most of us could benefit from refocusing our minds.
There are many ways to achieve this, so find one that works best for you. It could be the act of mindfulness, or being aware of your thoughts and actions as you make them. It might be shifting from negative thinking to positive thoughts through concerted effort to create new thinking patterns. You may try absorbing mostly positive media, from happier news stories and television shows to cutting back on social media, which can be rampant with negativity.
Finding something that works for you to aid your mentality may be a challenge, but it can be a worthwhile one.
