If mood is currently low, Tone offers you some ideas to try to reverse the trend... With kindness towards yourself, try to incorporate at least one of the following points into your weekly routine.
Try to exercise regularly
It has been proven that exercise is one of the most effective ways to improve mental health. Regular exercise can help reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance overall mental well-being. Particularly through the production of endorphins, the happiness hormone that sends a message to our brain.
When we're not in shape, we rarely feel like going for a run or doing a intense HIIT workout, so why not start with 20 minutes of yoga, with music if it's hard to concentrate?
Try to get enough sleep
Sleep is essential for physical and mental health.
For those who don't suffer from insomnia, let's aim for at least 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep every night.
Herbal teas, dietary supplements, or even specially chosen essential oils can also be helpful.
Improve your diet
A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins can help improve mental health.
Avoiding processed and sugary foods can help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Practice relaxation techniques
Relaxation techniques such as mindfulness, deep breathing, and yoga can help reduce stress and improve mood.
We provide tips for deep breathing on Instagram, and just 1 minute a day is enough to show its effects.
Connecting with people can help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation. Spending time with friends and family can help improve mental health. Maybe an afternoon at home with a friend?
Seek help from mental health professionals
Mental health is essential, and it's important to seek professional help if needed.
We can't find all the answers ourselves, nor do we have the tools to understand it all. A professional can approach the problem in the right way and help us get back on track.
