Over the past few years, we’ve offered some strategies to help you maximize and save money. Although we advocate making smart financial decisions, at GlobeOne, we also believe in living a well-balanced life, overall.
To help achieve that balance, it’s important to maintain your physical, emotional and mental health along with your financial health, which can be challenging in today’s world.
Below are some suggestions to help you boost your mental health and maintain balance in your life, whether you live in Toronto, Mexico City or Saigon.
Treat yourself with kindness and avoid self-criticism. Make time for hobbies and project and broaden your horizons maybe by taking music lessons or learning a foreign language.
Quiet Your Mind
Relaxation exercises can improve your state of mind. Try meditation or mindfulness to improve your mindset and outlook on life.
Get off the Grid
Leave your phone at home from time to time and free yourself from constant social media, news and email notifications. Allow yourself to spend quality time with someone or just with yourself.
Show Some Love
Close, quality relationships are key to a happy, healthy life. Make sure to foster yours.
Laugh, Laugh, Laugh
A sense of humor is key to mental health. Take the time to watch a funny video or movie or hang out with a funny friend.
Change up Your Routine
Routines offer safety and security, but a change of pace can perk up a stale schedule. Take a bus home after work. Change your jogging route or check out a new restaurant.
Whether it’s letting go of old grudges or forgiving that person who cut you off on the way to work, practicing forgiveness will help you increase your mental health and give you a more satisfying life.
Find the Upside
Former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli once said, “What appear to be calamities are often the sources of fortune.” Finding the silver lining in an apparently terrible situation can help you maintain your sanity as well as your mental health.
Seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. If you feel you need help to find a balanced mindset, Mental Health America offers resources to find the help you need.
Take the time to take care of your mental health as well as your financial and physical health to strike a balance that will help you live a meaningful and fulfilling life.
