5 ways to stay mentally healthy these days

The previous month brought sad news from our eastern neighbor, for which no one was prepared.

The situation has affected everyone and we are trying to process what is happening.

That's why we want to help you stay mentally well. It is the best way to handle the current situation.

First of all, it is important to realize that worry and stress are natural parts of our lives. All this behavior is automatic and serves to protect life. However, if you stay in it for a long time, it can have very unpleasant consequences.

So what can help in these situations?

1. Breathing exercises

Breathing exercises are the first aid for calming your body during stress and, in addition, it is also a useful prevention. It is often underestimated due to its simplicity, but considering its preventive benefits, this is a great shame. Even with such an obvious thing as breathing, you can harm yourself if you don't go about it in the right way. That is why it is good to reach for some proven technique - you can find one of them in Pohoďák and many others are available on the Internet.

2. Meditation

It often happens that our body is doing one thing while the mind is occupied with something else. At the moment, for example, fears about war. Meditation will help you reconnect your body and mind.

3. Correct lifestyle

To "eat" every part of your Self. We are talking about the physical, mental and spiritual sphere, but also about the sphere of social relations and profession. They all interact, so to forget one is to impoverish the others. And stress does not choose who it affects, it enters where it is allowed.

4. Circle of support

As we are social creatures, we need to have people around us, especially in times when we are not the easiest. Confide your feelings to a close person and also be a support for others.

5. Asking for help is not taboo

If you have been struggling with negative feelings for a long time and it significantly lowers the quality of your life, it is completely natural to look for the possibilities of professional help . It is similar to a broken leg, which not only hurts, but also limits movement and functioning. You can't see the psyche, but it can just as well (and sometimes even more) trouble you and limit your functioning. Fortunately, there are experts who are here just for you. You simply don't have to be alone for anything.


Together with Kristy Medliarová, we have prepared a series on the topic of mental health that will help you go deeper:
