Mental Health Awareness Week: Day 5

Simple Habits To De-Stress

Prioritise Sleep and Living A Healthy Lifestyle

We have said it before and we will say it again, sleep is the unsung hero of mental health and is the reason behind starting this brand. Getting enough sleep is fundamental so making sure we give ourselves enough time to get into bed in our favourite pyjamason an evening is very important. Along with getting enough sleep, some other simple habits to ensure we have good mental wellbeing are good nutrition, hydration and exercise. All these important aspects improve our mood, gain mental clarity and stress tolerance.

Identify What Makes You Sad

Daily journaling can help identify what depletes you in your day to day life as it helps you check in every morning or evening with how you are feeling. Such things might include, too much screen time, alcohol consumption, lack of exercise or fresh air or feeling disconnected. These can all have a huge effect on mental health.

It's OK not to be OK

Social media and other external factors put such emphasis on positivity and 'living your best life' that it can put pressure on people to feel that they should be coping better. Stress can affect every single person and it takes a strong person to bear witness to how we are really feeling. Support is a huge part of the healing process so never be afraid to ask for help from family, friends or professional help.
