New Year's Resolutions to Boost Your Mental Wellness

While many people march into the new year with the idea of improving their financial, education, living, or love life standings, you may have simple goals to focus on your own mental well-being. There is no shame in setting resolutions that focus on furthering your education or finding a better career. Honestly, achieving these goals alone can improve your mental wellness greatly, and our counselor in Orlando actually wants everyone to strive for this every day of every year. That being said, you may just be looking for a New Year's resolution that is focused primarily on boosting your mental health. Here are some amazing mental wellness focused resolutions that can lead your new year into a new life.

Prioritizing Diet and Exercise

It is a well-known fact that there is a direct link between the state of your physical and mental health. When you put focus on improving your physical health, you will see impressive amounts of mental wellness improvements.  Here are some positive approaches to this resolution:

  • Regular Exercise
  • Adequate Strict Sleep Schedule
  • Dietary Changes That Focus on Bettering Physical Health

While the resolution to improve your physical health will help improve your mental wellbeing, there are other ways to achieve the same results.

Prioritizing Self-Care

Practicing and prioritizing your own self-care is incredibly vital. By doing so, you are training yourself to love yourself greater. Especially if you are normally the type that cares for the needs of others above yourself. Prioritizing your self-care will help beat depression, anxiety, indecisiveness, and negative mind spaces. Here are areas of self-care that can be easily overlooked:

  • Forgive Yourself
  • Surround Yourself with What Makes You Happy
  • Make Time for Yourself

Consider Going Anti-Social Media

No, don't completely give up all social media for an entire new year. Unless you know, you want to. However, it is proven that taking a break from social media can improve your mental state in many ways.

First, there are benefits of social media that do indeed improve mental wellness. Dopamine vendors, such as buttons and positive affirmations, are in great supply with social media platforms. It is possible to be lifted up by those who love you on these popular platforms. Disconnecting from these negative influences for a while, like at the start of a new year, allows you to focus on your mental health and cleanse negativity from your life. Who knows, it may change your life forever.

When you start your new year with the right resolutions in mind, you can finally live with your mental health as your number one priority. If you are looking for help to get your mental health in a great place, contact us to schedule your appointment with our experienced counselor in Orlando today.
