Depression, suicide, homicide......

Often times people think insanity when mental health is mentioned.

Your state of mind, how you think, how you perceive yourself and the world around you is very vital to measuring how stable your mental health is. The daily hassles and stress of life is more than enough to make one go gaga, which is quite understandable.

Now how do you take care of your mental health and wellbeing?

More than you know, good relationships, connecting with people can really help to keep you in check. 
It gives a sense of belonging and self-worth, something everyone wishes to feel.

Having good, healthy relationships provide emotional support and can help you grow stronger when you support others too.

Also learn not to rely too much on social media. Go out there and meet new people

Occupy yourself with something new. Learn a skill or an online course. Do something productive to keep you busy, something of value that can boost your self confidence and self-esteem.

You could also try being kind to others, giving to people creates a positive feeling and sense of reward that many are unaware of. It also gives a sense of purpose.

Be aware of the moment
Immerse yourself in the present and the massive things you could achieve in the future. In this way, you forget the past and save your mind the stress of worrying over what you may or may not have done.

And most importantly, be mindful of how you perceive and treat yourself.

The five love languages; words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, physical touch and quality time. This is not just meant to be expressed to another person, you could do same for yourself.

Find your love language, if you love receiving gifts buy one for yourself. If you enjoy quality time, take time out to spend time alone, not spending lonely days.

Your mental health is pertinent more than you know. People do things because of how unstable their mental health is.

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, if not more.
