Top 3 Mental Health Tips From Your Honolulu Wellness Coaching Team, Honolulu, Hawaii

Help yourself enjoy a happy, healthy life by taking care of your most important organ — your mind. Mental health is key to physical health, as stress and anxiety frequently manifest as insomnia, headaches, stomach pain, muscle tension, and low energy, among numerous other issues. Use the following tips from the wellness coaching experts at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, HI, to take better care of your mental health and get more out of life.

Top 3 Mental Health Tips From Your Wellness Coaching Team

1. Be Kind to Yourself

Avoid self-criticism when talking about yourself and letting one negative thought turn into 10 that takes you down a shame spiral. Be kind and respectful to yourself, as there will always be people trying to bring you down. Why be one of those people? Help yourself feel good with positive activities and tasks such as working extra hard for that job promotion, learning a new skill, or trying a new hobby.

2. Spend Time With Happy, Positive People

wellness coachingSurround yourself with well-adjusted friends and family members who believe in themselves and lifting others up. Avoid those who speak negatively on a consistent basis and rarely have anything good to say about anyone or anything. A strong network of supportive friends and family members is key in staying positive during low or bad times in your life.

3. Care for Your Body

Help yourself feel good by taking care of your body. It is hard to feel great when you are always tired, hungover, ill, and so on. Start with nutrition — enjoy balanced meals high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean protein to fuel your body and mind. Exercise frequently to keep the body limber and flood your mind with feel-good brain chemicals. Get seven to eight hours of sleep every night if possible to awake refreshed and recharged. Reduce or eliminate unhealthy habits such as smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol in excess.

Your wellness coaching team at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health also recommends recognizing what triggers stress and learning how to deal with it in a healthy way, such as watching funny videos, going for a walk around the block, or learning to meditate. Rely on these wellness experts whenever you need extra help, such as nutrition and exercise guidance among other coaching services.
