Ways to be kinder to your mental health this month

Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day, a whole day filled with kindness, whether that’s being kind to yourself or the people around you. We’re here to help you be kinder to yourself as your mental health is the most important. Let’s reach our healthy lifestyle goals together in the best way possible! Read on to find out our top 5 tips of ways you can be kinder to YOU this month: 

1. Manifest your morning  

You’ve all heard of manifesting, what’s it all about? Starting your day right with a positive affirmation helps you take that one step closer to being kinder to yourself and turning your dreams into reality. This might be as simple as creating the perfect morning or night routine, writing down what you are thankful for. Doing what you enjoy is so important to setting the tone right for the rest of the day.  

2. Be kind to yourself from the inside out  

Most important is being kind to yourself. It’s always hard starting a new year when many people put pressure on themselves to ‘do better’ or change up their whole lifestyle in a short space of time. It’s very easy to blame yourself and speak to yourself in a way you would never speak to others. Instead of being judgmental about your progress or your body image, be kind to yourself. Remind yourself why you’re taking this journey and how far you’ve come and use positive affirmations to keep you motivated and optimistic. 

3. Don’t weigh yourself too often 

Every person’s weight fluctuates hour to hour, day to day. Weighing daily, or just too often will not give a realistic view of your weight loss. Stick to once a week, preferably first thing in the morning, before you’ve eaten and after you’ve been to the toilet. Also, it is important to understand feeling good and living a healthier lifestyle outway the number on the scales.  

4. Look after your mental health and wellbeing  

Oftentimes, when we’re stressed or feeling down, we can easily fall into unhealthy habits. For some, this may include relying on a few too many caffeinated drinks to give us a boost, whilst others may find ourselves reaching for one too many glasses of wine each night. Whilst these drinks in moderation won’t do much harm, having more than we should can exaggerate feelings of anxiety and depression. 

5. Forgive yourself 

Lastly, forgiveness is key! Sticking to a strict diet is not easy. It’s so normal to crave a treat from time to time. The point is, it’s absolutely ok to have a treat, as long as we see it as a treat, we enjoy it, and we understand that we should enjoy treats in moderation and not every day.
