TRUSTING GOD: THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE

3 Easy Ways To Boost Your Mental Health In 2022

It's no secret that mental health can be a serious problem for many people. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1 billion people worldwide suffer from depression and other mental health disorders.

If you're one of them, it's important to know that there are ways to improve your mental health — and they don't all involve medication or therapy.

It's important to take care of your mental health. In fact, taking care of your mental health can make it easier to take care of other aspects of your life.

When you're feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, it can be difficult to think about taking care of yourself — especially if you're already dealing with other issues. But by making a few changes in your life and getting some support from friends and family members, you can start to feel better in no time.

It's never too early to start thinking about your mental health. One of the best ways to boost your mental health is by practising self-care.

When it comes to your mental health, you're the only one who can make positive changes. You're in charge of your own well-being and happiness.

There are many ways you can improve your mental health and help yourself feel better. One of the most effective is simply to give yourself some time to care for yourself.

Here are three easy ways to do that:

Start a Gratitude Journal

While there are plenty of different activities and techniques that promote better mental health, there's nothing that can replace journaling. Gratitude Journaling is a proven way to bring your attention to the positive and to make you feel better about your life and your circumstances.

If you've never tried a gratitude journal, here is a simple exercise you can do to boost your mental health in 2022: Set aside 5 minutes each day to write in your gratitude journal.

Write down three things that went well during the day. In a world where we're constantly exposed to negative news and negativity, this is an easy way to shift your focus towards positivity.

Spend some time thinking about what went well during the day or week and what things made you feel good. It doesn't have to be a big deal, it doesn't have to be earth-shattering, just something that made you happy or made your life a little better.

I often talk about the life-changing impact gratitude journaling had on me. You may find my posts here.

Practice Meditation Using Mindfulness Apps

In 2022, we will be seeing more people practising meditation. Why? Because with all the stress and pressure we experience in our lives, it is important to learn how to meditate. Our ability to manage stress is one of the most important things because it can help us live happier and healthier life. And with the right tools, it can be much easier to learn how to meditate.

There are many mindfulness apps available for download now. Some of these apps offer guided meditation, so you can learn the proper techniques from a trained instructor. But there are also apps that offer meditations without any voice guidance. These are a great choice for beginners who are just starting to learn how to meditate. It's important to let go of our stress and anxiety. It's also important to learn how to live a happier and healthier life. So, if you want to learn how to meditate properly, be sure to download a mindfulness app in 2022.

Mindfulness meditation apps are all over the place these days. You can download them onto your phone, or you can even use them on your TV! There are even apps that will remind you when it's time to meditate. If you're at all interested in mindfulness and meditation, I highly recommend giving it a try. It's been proven time and time again that it can help improve moods, reduce stress and anxiety, and enhance attention and memory.

Boost Your Confidence by Practicing Self-Care

When you're feeling low or anxious, it's easy to focus on what's wrong with yourself and your life. But when it comes to mental health, there's another way: You can learn to love yourself more.

The first step is to identify what you appreciate about yourself. "Think of three things that make you unique," suggests psychologist Alison Armstrong in Psychology Today. "If they are not obvious, think of them as if they were." Then write these down and keep them somewhere safe so you can refer back to them when you need a boost.

"This kind of positive self-talk is a great way to boost your confidence," says Armstrong. "And it will help you feel better about yourself when things don't go as planned."

There are tons of self-care techniques out there — some of them simple enough for anyone to do anywhere at any time — but one of my favourites is deep breathing exercises because they're so quick and easy to do anywhere with no equipment required!

Deep breathing helps relieve stress, anxiety, depression and even pain by increasing oxygen levels in the body while lowering blood pressure and heart rate. You'll feel calmer and more relaxed after just a few minutes of deep breathing every day!

Mental health has become a major topic in the last few years, and for good reason. We all need to work to stay in good mental health and we all need to support those around us in maintaining their mental health.

In my latest book, Trusting God, I have talked in length about how I cope with anxiety by placing my trust in God and how journaling allows me to do that with ease. You may check out the book on Gumroad or Instamojo.
