Natural Ways to Improve Mental Health

Reading time 2 min.

If you are having mental health issues, it may seem intimidating to use medication to resolve them. However, here are some natural solutions that are guaranteed to help make you feel better.

Regulate Your Hormones

Particularly for women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome, more commonly known as PMS, hormone regulation can make a drastic difference in your mental health. Women are significantly more at risk for suffering from depression and anxiety than men, and this can be attributed to the hormone imbalances that they experience during the four weeks of the menstrual cycle. Common symptoms include depression and anxiety, as well as mood swings. However, there are many ways that you can regulate your hormones naturally, like consuming enough protein, eating the right amount of food at every meal, and exercising on a regular basis. You will feel much better whenever your next period comes around.

Improve Nutrient Intake

A balanced diet is extremely beneficial in regulating your mental health. For example, if you are low in nutrients such as iron and Vitamin B12, you can suffer from symptoms like mood swings and depression. You can eat foods that are rich in nutrients, and you can also supplement them with concentrated capsules or even patches, such as Le-Vel Thrive, which provide a steady flow of essential vitamins and minerals throughout the day. It is important to meet with your physician or dietitian to determine what your nutrient levels are in order to see whether or not supplements are necessary, or if you can get enough with making modifications to your regular diet.

Exercise Regularly

Exercise releases the vital chemicals of dopamine and serotonin, which are key players in the arena of your mental health ad well being. Once you develop an exercise routine and feel more confident in yourself and your abilities, it will begin to raise your self-esteem, a large component of your mental health overall. Exercise is great for anxiety because it can help reduce muscle tension and ease the amount of stress through the release of good hormones and chemicals. Even conditions such as ADHD have been shown to benefit from exercise, as it can help to improve focus as well as increase productivity. For those suffering from conditions such as trauma, exercise serves as a healthy distraction, while also helping your body feel much better and healthier in the process.

Practice Self-Care

Self-care is the term for a wide spectrum of activities and lifestyle changes which will help you to feel better overall and increase your mental health. One way to practice self-care is to establish a sleeping schedule that fits with your work or school hours, and allows you to get enough shut eye to be able to fully function every day. You can also take an occasional mental health day, have a hobby like reading fiction or needlework, and even take yourself and your friends to a spa for a day or weekend. Develop habits that allow you to feel better in the long-term, and perform them regularly if you need to destress.

Learn Mindfulness

Mindfulness has become extremely popular over the past few decades. It is often introduced and practiced with meditation, as the techniques are very similar. There are many ways to incorporate mindfulness into your day in order to benefit for your mental health. Try breathing in a pattern when you begin to feel stressed or anxious. You should also learn how to be present, so that you are not able to ruminate as much on things that are preoccupying your mind. Even with a few minutes of mindfulness every day, you can change your perception on many factors in your life from negative to positive.

You do not need to immediately turn to a psychiatrist or medication if you are struggling with your mental health. With these tips, you are guaranteed to see improvements and as a result, a much better lifestyle as well.
