How to look after your mental health leading up to the last push of 2023
October is Mental Health Awareness Month and we know how stressful this last push of the year can be! Taking care of your mental health leading up to the end of the year and beyond is essential for your overall well-being. We’ve listed a few tips to help you maintain good mental health during this period:
Set realistic goals
Reflect on your goals and expectations for the last part of the year. Make sure they are achievable and realistic to reduce stress and avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Regular physical exercise is an excellent way to reduce stress and boost your mood. Even getting out for a short walk in the middle of the day, standing up at least every hour or some light stretching can make a significant difference.
Maintain a balanced diet
Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid excessive caffeine, sugar and processed foods that can negatively impact your mood and energy levels. Dehydration can also affect your mood and cognitive function. Ensuring you are drinking plenty of water throughout the day will help with this as well.
Get adequate sleep
Ensure you are getting enough quality sleep each night. Establish a bedtime routine that promotes relaxation and a good night's sleep. Our satin PJ’s, robes and eye masks are one part of the routine we can't go without. Satin is so relaxing to wear and helps to support healthy hair and skin while you sleep, a confidence boost we all deserve!
Maintain social connections with friends and family. Spending time with loved ones can provide emotional support and reduce feelings of isolation. Even just a quiet night in with a handful of your gal pals, match up with our satin pjs and watch a movie with a few snacks.
Reflect and reset
Take time to reflect on your accomplishments and challenges throughout the year. Practise positive self-talk and challenge negative thought patterns. Practice by regularly acknowledging and appreciating the positive aspects of your life.
Dedicate time for self-care activities that help you relax and recharge. Put on your favourite pair of our satin pjs and try mindfulness, meditation, yoga or simply enjoying a good book or movie.
