This is a quick note. Looking after your mental health should be a life-long commitment. This means we must commit to it. Looking after our physical body is all the rage. The news is filled with glamour and diets yet little is said about our mental health.
Our outward appearance and ability to transform ourselves must go hand in hand with our mind being steadied, resilient and in the right place.
So go on. Commit to looking after your mental health. This could mean, counselling, coaching, seeking courses on mindfulness, yoga or meditation.
Commiting to creativity and flow, allowing ourselves to create and think in the freedom of our own space. This could be through a hobby such as writing, painting, poetry, indeed any art form.
Taking ourselves back to nature and the wonder of beautiful things is important, especially if we are somewhat sensitive to the world. Take yourself back to art, in gallaries, in the internet whereever. To music with a widened commitment to appreciate all music from all cultures, religions or races.
Set aside time deliberately, as you would the gym or sport and get your mind straighter.
Declutter, get rid of stuff, Feng Shui your life. Get rid of unneccessary or disorganised mess around you.
Grow something and commit to keeping it alive if possible.
To have your mind in place is an essential human right one often denied at work by micro-managers and corporate dictators.
They can take much but do not let them take your identity. Take back control of your life.
