I have been experiencing a lot of anxiety and depression, and I know for myself, it happens when I don’t physically take care of myself.
I have not really eaten substance for days, and I have been sleeping late. And physical health has a direct effect on my mental health personally.
So, one day I asked Twitter, what is something you do to pick yourself back up after a bad day? These were the replies:https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
There were a lot of replies that had to do with taking care of your physical health, or treating yourself to something you love, or even a peaceful time. People felt at peace and happier when they spent time with their significant other and their pets that they love.
Most Common Responses
- Watch something
- Spend time with loved ones (animal + human)
- Read a book
More than just everyone having something to help them feel better, you notice that everyone had something they immediately do to take care of themselves, and most of these are very healthy options to revert your attention to when struggling with a bad day.
The entire world is struggling whether you can see it in their face or not, and the best thing we can do, is not act and make conclusions on our emotions, but rather, take time to take care of our current emotional state before we move on.
The fact that so many people already had their go to feel better choice, shows how everyone is just trying to keep going in this life, and has accepted that life just really sucks sometimes, but there are reasons to maintain your mental health and keep going.
I am not gonna lie. I am not emotionally stable, ever. But as I take care of my physical health and surround myself with healthy genuine people, it has been easier to regulate my mental health, and learn the importance of a community.
I have been able to identify when my mind skews a situation and when I don’t need to feel anxiety. No, I am not perfect at all, and I am learning the basics of maintaining my mental health to keep going in my life.
Ending my life is not really an option, so my other option is to learn how to keep going.
