Maintaining your mental health is vital to living a happy, healthy life. But unfortunately, millions of people struggle with mental illnesses that leave them feeling hopeless, helpless and alone. Many turn to drugs and alcohol to numb this pain and cope with the mental conditions they face.
Here I will discuss some points regarding coping up with some mental problems :
1) Choose your suitable time, and place to do this meditation. At first sit in a chair or you may also sit by leaning against wall. Relax your whole body. Avoid tight dresses. Then close your eyes and start taking deep breath. Breathe in for atleast 6 seconds then breathe out slowly. Focus your mind in any particular thought. Continue breathing process. Slowly you will feel calmness in our whole body. No matter what comes to mind, you should do this without paying attention to it. Always remember, "Thinking does not mean doing".
2) Start writing diary. It is one of the good practice in mental health. Write down the events that happened throughout the day, make schedule, plans etc.
3) Listen to music
4) Prioritise your passions, hobbies. Do whatever you like but don't stop it.
5) Involve yourself in some physical exercises, yogas, pranayamas etc.
6) Talk more. Talk to people daily. Explore your surroundings. Experience people and news things around you.
7) To gain confidence - stand in front of mirror, then look at yourself and utter these words, "I can do, I will do" many times. Do this everyday.
8) Never try to win by force, if you know that you are wrong.
