To maintain and strengthen your mental and emotional health, it is important to pay attention to your needs and feelings. Don't let negative emotions build a stress wall around you. Try to keep a balance between daily responsibilities and the things you like. If you take care of yourself, you will be better prepared to handle challenges if and when they arise.
Everyone is different, and not all things are equally beneficial for all people. Some people feel better just relaxing doing nothing while others need more activity and more excitement or stimulation to feel better. The most important thing is to find activities that you enjoy and that give you a boost. Doing more exercise, spending more time in contact with nature, and being with people we love are the main activities that can be as effective as medication in treating a variety of mental illnesses, including depression and anxiety, according to a study at the University of California.
