When we feel more balanced and in control of ourselves, we are better equipped to nurture, care, and relate.
- Determine Your Purpose – Determining what’s really meaningful to you in your life and moving toward achieving it can make all the difference in handling negative forces.
- Do Something Unexpected for Others – Do things for other people – even something very small; it both makes their day and lifts your spirits more than you can imagine.
- Eat a Balanced Diet and Healthy Snacks – A balanced diet, and frequent small meals or healthy snacks to keep blood sugar constant, makes a significant difference in mood and immune health.
- Sleep to Repair, Restore and Recharge Mind and Body – Sleep restores both your mind and body. Without enough good sleep, your system doesn’t function as well as it should.
- Keep Moving to Lessen Depression and Boost Health – Exercise releases stress, anxiety, and tension, also relieving depression. Choose to do something you enjoy and you’ll be more likely to stick with it.
- Connect With Others – Studies show that people who engage socially live longer, strengthened by close relationships with family and/or friends. So even if you think don’t have time, make time.
- Be Positive, But Not to a Fault – Acknowledging our thoughts and feelings, and expressing them responsibly, is a key factor in good emotional health.
- Practice a Little Gratitude – It’s not a cliché. Being thankful for even one small thing each day, writing it down and keeping it in front of us or top of mind, can have a powerful impact throughout the day.
