What do you love doing? Time spent doing something just for you is important.
Watch a movie / TV series or read – it can be a great distraction, a way to laugh or let out emotions.
Listen to music… maybe something familiar?
See a friend. Spending time with the people you like and care about you can feel great and give you a boost.
Get outdoors. Fresh air and change of scenery can do wonders for relaxing your mind.
Keeping active is so beneficial for your physical AND mental health.
Clean/declutter…busy surroundings can often foster a busy mind.
Have some screen-free time. We can get so connected to the social world, we lose the connection to ourselves.
Learn about your brain. It can help to understand how your brain is growing and how that might affect how you feel.
Plan things into your life. Even if you start by simply planning out your day
Talk to someone, even if it means starting difficult conversations about how you’re feeling.
Get arty/crafty… it’s a great way to let your feelings out
Writing. It can be easier to make sense of things and calm your mind by writing down your thoughts and feelings. You could even write a blog for MindMate if you’ve got something to say!
