7 Things to Do to Improve Your Mental Health

Mental health is said to be as important as physical health. Some people even think mental health is THE most important thing when it comes to living healthily. 

These are some ways to improve your mental health.

1. Fake it till you make it.
Feelings always follow actions. Remember this when you are low. Start feeling good about things that make you happy and make sure to keep these good feelings for as long as it takes to actually feel better. It always works.

2. Take care of yourself.
You should always spend some time to relax and have some good quality time. Spend time with people you love. Exercise 2 or 3 times a week and eat healthy foods.

3. Focus on the positive.
Don't stress over things you can't control. It's important to always focus on anything that's positive and forget about the negative stuff. It's a great way to build your happiness and mental health.

4. Surround yourself with happy people.
People who surround themselves with negative and weak people are often times like them. Kick them out of your life. As hard as it might sound, it's sometimes the right thing to do. You should always keep your mental health and happiness on your #1 top priority list. Surround yourself with lovely people who cheer you up and make you feel happy to be alive.

5. Love Yourself.
Most of us often times forget to love ourselves. It's the truth. We are too busy complaining about the stuff we hate about ourselves and we forget about our good qualities and aspects. Take a moment every day and find one thing that you LOVE about yourself.

6. Avoid Alcohol and drugs
Drugs and alcohol often times seems like the only way to escape reality to a lot of people. It's not. It just makes things worse. 

7. Get Help
If you feel sad most of the time something is going really wrong and you know it too. Approach a loved one and talk to them about your situation. You will immediately feel better and you may even forget about your struggle.
