7 MENTAL HEALTH BOOSTERS
As one of the leading CBSE affiliated schools in Kolkata, we share a few tips for students on boosting their mental health:
✔ Start Valuing Yourself
You should not compare yourself with others. Treating yourself with kindness and respect in every possible situation is the best way to take care of yourself.
✔ Start Taking Care of Your Body
The body is your abode. Especially for students, during their growing age self-care is very important. You can take care of yourself by doing following things such as:
- Having a well-balanced diet.
- Exercising regularly
- Drinking plenty of water
- Take enough sleep
- Taking out time for things you enjoy
✔ Invest Your Time on Yourself
You should at least invest some time of the day in self-development. Reading self development books, writing or developing new skills such as swimming, dancing or playing musical instruments are some great ways to develop yourself as an individual and to spend your time creatively.
✔ Learn to Deal With Stress
Stress has become a part of students’ lives. It could be because of academic pressure, peer pressure and exam pressure. To deal with stress, you can try going out for walks and practising yoga. Some students also find listening to music and watching funny videos calming and relaxing.
✔ Calm Your Mind
Mental health is about how students think, feel and behave. A peaceful mind is necessary for handling stress and to do better in academics as well as co-curricular activities. Starting your day with positive affirmations is a great way to boost your mood early in the morning. A quick meditation session and positive self-talk can also be helpful.
✔ Set Realistic Goals
Sometimes students set unrealistic goals which cause stress to them when not fulfilled. You can start setting small goals. Completing small tasks slowly will give you a sense of accomplishment.
✔ Reward Yourself on Achievements
Keep yourself happy by celebrating your achievements. Rewarding your achievements is a great way to keep yourself on the path of hard work and success.
✔ Get Help if You Need It
If you have a feeling that you are not able to handle things all by yourself, seeking help is the best thing to do. Talk to your parents, teachers, and counsellors at school. They can guide you the best.
