Mental health is often considered taboo; however, it is crucial to discuss and break down this barrier. It’s important to acknowledge that we all experience mental health and wellbeing at different times and in ways that might not be the same for everyone.
This blog post will explore the five holistic approaches to supporting your mental health with meditation, nature, movement, self-reflection, and community engagement.
Meditation is one of the most widely used approaches to supporting mental health. Meditation has been shown to reduce depression, anxiety, and stress symptoms. It can also increase self-awareness and compassion for others.
Nature is an excellent way to help yourself by taking time out of your day to go for a walk in the park, go on a hike, or sit outside and listen to the sounds of nature.
When our body is in motion, it releases feel-good chemicals called endorphins. You can start by incorporating movement into your daily routine to help boost your mood.
Sleep is one of the most essential things in your life. Sleep helps keep your immune system healthy, your soul happy, and your mind clear. It has been shown that people who get enough sleep are less likely to feel stressed, more likely to be productive at work, and more likely to maintain an overall healthy lifestyle.
Studies have shown that these treatments may help treat depression and anxiety disorders and physical conditions like muscle pain or stiffness.
