Mental Self Care Ideas
Updated: Apr 11
Today I have compiled a list of 10 different ideas that can help when you are having a bad mental health day. I utilize a few of these ideas myself, but instead of using them on only bad mental health days, I use some of them every day.
Read A Book
Take a guilt-free nap
Schedule "me time" into your calendar
Use an adult coloring book to color and unwind
Listen to a Podcast (preferably a calming one, but whatever helps you relax is fine as well)
Unplug for at least 30 mins; put your technology away and relax
Avoid toxic people
Try a new hobby
Create a to-do list to help clear your mind.
These are by no means the only ways that you can help your mental health on those bad days. Create a list of tools and tricks that works for you.
