3 Resolutions to Improve Your Mental Health, Rochester, New York

At the start of the new year, many people make resolutions designed to improve physical health, such as quitting smoking or losing weight. However, your mental health is just as important and deserves the same attention when drafting goals for the future. Incorporate the following three mental health counseling tips into your plans to improve your mental well-being. 

3 Tips for Better Mental Health

1. Prioritize Self-Care

mental health counselingSelf-care encompasses a variety of mindful habits designed to enhance your overall health and happiness. These could include eating right, exercising regularly, sleeping a recommended eight hours each night, and mitigating stress. Define specific tasks to help you achieve these larger goals—for example, learning meditation techniques to combat stress or reducing screen time by 8:00 p.m. to promote an early bedtime.

2. Learn Positive Self-Talk

Negative self-talk can take a toll on your self-esteem. Take time to listen to your internal dialogue and rephrase moments of damaging self-reflection using positive language. Instead of thinking negatively about yourself, shift the focus to what you can improve. Then, complement yourself on your achievements—no matter how small—such as completing chores around your home, running necessary errands, and doing laundry. 

3. Seek Mental Health Counseling

Maybe you are struggling with anger management issues, or perhaps you just want to promote a positive mentality. Mental health counseling can help when you become overwhelmed. A professional can give you the tools needed to maintain a happy and healthy life, including tips to reduce stress, suppress anger, and manage anxiety.
