Take control of your wellbeing
Mental wellbeing has been extensively studied over many decades and scientists have come to a clear conclusion. You can take charge of your own mental wellbeing. Studies have clearly shown that the actions you take and the way you think has a huge impact on your mental health.
Here are the 5 steps which have the biggest impact on mental health. Try them out for yourself and see what impact they have, you might be amazed at the results.
MEET – connect with people and develop relationships. This could be spending time with the family, meeting new people, making new friends, reconnecting with old friends or spending time with people from your community. Real social contact (not online social media) is vital to your mental wellbeing.
MOVE – our bodies were designed to move, walking, running, jumping, any kind of movement is beneficial. You don’t have to go to a gym, just playing with kids or running up the stairs gets your heart pumping and has huge physical and mental benefits.
MIND – your brain needs exercise too! Learning new things, doing puzzles, reading books or anything else which stretches your cognitive abilities has been shown to improve overall feelings of wellbeing and increase your positive mental health.
MEANING – many people find giving to others, through volunteer work, service or simply helping out a friend gives them more purpose and improves mood and esteem. Simply sharing a smile with a stranger might add meaning to your day. The simple act of smiling is important to many faiths including Islam “when you smile to your brother’s face it is charity”.
MOMENT – be aware of the present moment (what you can see, hear, feel, taste and smell) instead of the constant chatter of the mind about the past or the future. Really pay attention to what is here and now. Let go of worries about the future or ruminating on what has happened in the past. Being in the present moment and mindful of the task you are currently doing (like breathing while reading this magazine!) has a HUGE beneficial impact. Let go of attachment to your thoughts and be in this present and perfect moment.
