Mental Wellness in 2020: 15 Mindful Steps to Help Fight Depression & Cultivate More Joy in Your Life by Lisa Faremouth Weber
This year has been tough on everyone, and it is taking a toll on our mental health. Here are 15 ideas that may help you lessen depression and increase the love and joy in your life:
- Love yourself above everything else. Fall in love with yourself. Remember that you are liquid love, you are loved, you have always been loved and you will always be LOVED.
- Strengthen your faith. Stay close to God or a God-force. Create a home altar with sacred objects that bring you a sense of peace and grounding.
- Use positive self-talk. Affirm the positive. Stop telling yourself you are sick, that you have anxiety, are too old, too young, too fat, etc.
- Go to bed early and get up early.
- Walk in nature daily.
- Sing yourself a love song, dance, do yoga.
- Move daily. Motion is lotion.
- Practice random acts of kindness, volunteer, be of service, help others and shift your focus away from yourself.
- Grow your tribe, connect with others, join a self-help support group, join a yoga studio, congregation, etc.
- BE STRONG! Do 20 pushups daily, start strength training to build self-confidence.
- Remember "this too shall pass." You are not your feelings for emotions. It is totally normal to feel sad, depressed, anxious, etc.
- Raise your frequency. Put a picture of yourself as a kid next to your bed and hug your inner child. Tell him or her that you have them.
- Avoid toxic or negative people. Stay close to those who love you, support your growth, etc.
