Tips for Good Mental Health

With Mental Health Month in mind, here are a few suggestions for good mental health:

-Make a point to smile and say “good morning” to neighbors and co-workers. Even little gestures can make someone else’s day better and benefit your own mood.

-Go for a walk or a jog with a friend and play catch-up. Exercise has been shown to benefit mental health.

-Send someone a thank you note. Noticing and appreciating the positives can offer a boost in mood.

-Swap your normal cup of coffee for decaf-reducing intake supports sleep. People who get enough sleep are more likely to succeed at their daily tasks.
