Since the Covid-19 pandemic, mental health and related issues have been talked about emphatically. All the rules, guidelines, and restrictions that have been stipulated, which also cause anxiety, have so much impact on our lives in ways that we could not fathom. The new working environments and situations have resulted in stress and mental exhaustion.

We all have mental health. Good mental health reflects in our daily lives. Good mental health steers us in the path of purpose and provides clarity in our directions. We even have the energy to actualize the goals that we want to actualize. When we are faced with challenges, we can meet these challenges squarely.

One thing that is always in constant flux is our mental health. It is ever-changing because some times and situations make us feel stressed or feel down. The problem with some of these negative downtimes is that it can metamorphose into mental health issues with visible effects in our day to day lives. These feelings do not just go away all the time. Mental health, just like physical health, has places where and facilities can help you keep yourself fit. Physical fitness has places with equipment, facilities, and specialists to physically help you be in the best form. This is the same with mental health. There are deliberate efforts and steps that we can take to develop and better our mental health and improve our capacity to recover quickly from difficulty. This is why the importance of self-care cannot be overemphasized. It is important to practice self-care even though it can be difficult, especially when dealing with depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem.

Some ways can help one to improve our mental health, and some of them include;

TALKING TO SOMEONE: erroneously, people consider talking to others about their feelings as a sign of weakness. This is untrue, and the opposite is the case as it means you are taking control of your wellbeing. It is advisable to talk to your co-workers or colleagues, supervisor, and friends, or family. You should speak to people that you feel comfortable with.
STAY ACTIVE: This is not limited to rigorous and planned out exercises; instead, it could merely be taking a stroll during your break to improve your self-esteem, help you focus, and aid you in feeling better.
GOOD DIET: Your mental health benefits from healthy eating as much as your physical health.
DRINKING RESPONSIBLY: excessive intake of alcohol can worsen your anxious feeling.
KEEP IN TOUCH: the effects of obesity and smoking can be likened to the impact of loneliness. It is terrible for your health. Relationships are essential in your workspace and anywhere else.
ASK FOR HELP: You are not an island, and life can be overwhelming, so it can be in your benefit to ask for help and assistance when you need it.
TAKE A BREAK: Your mental health can benefit from a change in scenery and pace. Once in a while, move away from your work desk, go to the park, pick up a book, and do things to be happy. Get enough rest and sleep too.
DO WHAT YOU ARE GOOD: AT One way to boost your self-esteem is to do something you are passionate about. Doing something that you know how to do will make you feel good about yourself.

We hope that you are staying safe and well with whatever way you choose to practice self-care.
Charities such as See Me, Scotland, Breathing space, and Samaritans have good digital facilities and resources to help you, and they are just a phone call away if you need help and are struggling.
