A good “mental health” is not a goal to be achieved, it is that path, which when chosen makes all other goals easy.
Although often ignored, mental health requires as much attention as our physical health, but due to unawareness of the ill effects of mental sickness, people usually face many problems such as Anxiety, Mood swing, Eating disorders, Personality disorders etc.Let’s start our new year with a new journey towards a healthy mind free from all mental health disorders!

2. Stop appeasing everyone !You can’t please
You can’t please everyone, but you can at least please yourself!
many of us are very much concerned about our image.
IMAGE is what people think how you are
but CHARACTER is what actually you are!
the thing that matters the most is what you think of yourself.. and how you are, not what others think about you.because at the end of the day, you have to give all the answers to nobody but yourself!
3. Do what gives you a high!
Don’t get so much engaged in your responsibilities that you don’t get time for yourself, find out the things that make you happy and every day, have some time for those things you enjoy.
Remember, if you enjoy doing something, that is never a waste of time.

11. Be your own BFF
Who can know yourself better than you!
there will be a time in your life when no one would understand you, but if you truly are your own best friend, you would never need anyone to understand you!
The true victory is when you will realize that you don’t need anyone to make you happy, you are enough for yourself.
understand yourself, talk to yourself, find the solutions to your own problems, even if you go wrong, you would learn something from your mistakes. giving others the privilege to take decisions in your life can only make you weak.

Don’t give excuses, don’t lie, just a simple NO, without any explanation!
14. Don’t complain, accept the things as they are, or change them
Complain less, if you always keep complaining, you will not be able to see beauty in anything, acceptance is a bliss.
15. Don’t ignore emotional pain
16. Don’t compare yourself with others.
We all have some unique qualities, no one is born perfect, in our journey, we all try to get closer to perfection in our own ways.
appreciate yourself, your journey is totally different, things you have gone through are different.
EVERYTHING is different, comparing yourself with someone else is totally senseless.
BUT, the comparison which is actually required is a comparison with your own previous version.

18. What about inspiring sticky notes ??
Fill your room walls with inspirational and motivating sticky notes.
19. Share your feelings with friends.
Whatever you are feeling, good or bad, always share it with someone. Don’t suffocate yourself by keeping everything inside your mind.
20. Celebrate the small achievements
Every day is an achievement, celebrate it with great joy!
Hope these small changes will make a big difference in your life! 🙂
