How to promote mental health and wellness
Self-care is an important aspect of mental wellness. Keeping a self-care routine has been proven to reduce depression and anxiety, improve memory and concentration, improve energy, and reduce irritability and mood swings.
Everyone’s ideas about self-care are different- for some, it may be a day of pampering, and for others, it may be a day in nature or even just relaxing and binge-watching Netflix for a night.
Self-care can also be about setting boundaries and choosing not to focus on things beyond your control. You can’t control other people’s feelings, actions, or beliefs, but you can control how you react.
You can also use social media to promote mental wellness. You don’t have to be a social media influencer with a huge following to create awareness and encourage others.
You can share your story. There’s no shame in admitting that you struggle with mental health. Being open and honest may encourage someone else and help them feel less alone.
You can educate yourself and share what you’ve learned. If you find or know any good mental health resources, you can share them on your social media platforms. You never know who they’ll help.
One of the most popular ways to spread awareness is using mental health-related hashtags such as:
The more those hashtags are shared, the more awareness is spread.
