Achieve Positive Mental Health.....
Who do not want to lead a happy, healthy and long life? Everybody want to live a peacefull life..
What is positive mental health?
There is no certain thing is called as positive mental health. It’s just a relaxed and peaceful state of mind. And obtaining this state of mind depends upon several factors of day to day life. Few tips are given below, which can help you to inculcate the habit of promoting positive mental health even in your busy schedule life.
Healthy lifestyle is a pre-requisite to achieve positive mental health. Under healthy lifestyle, ‘eating good’ comes first. Now, you must be wondering how our eating habit is linked with mind. It’s a proved fact that our state of mind varies according to the type of food we consume. Always go for home-made food rather than fast food. However, giving the excuse of home made food, don’t consume high calorie, extremely spicy and rich food everyday. You can be excused for once in a blue moon, but not every day. Try to develop the taste of having food with less spices and oil (if you are fond of spicy food). It’s not impossible.
After eating, now you have to take care of your drinking habit. I mean to say your water intake habit. Try to have at least 8 glasses of water. If your occupation is related with any kind of physical exercise then increase the intake. Water is the substance, which detoxify your body and that eventually has a positive impact on mind.
The next step you need to take care is a bit difficult. But, it’s not impossible. Yes, you have to give up those bad habits like smoking, excessive drinking or any other bad habits. Just do it and see the difference.
In today’s life, stress is a part and parcel of our lives. So, whenever you are under stress, go for running or light up some candles, or take a hot water bath, it will help you. Try to inculcate these habits in you and your child. In few days, you will experience the result.
