1. A healthy mindset
You can't change things that have already happened, but you have the power to change what you feel about it.
2. Eat well
Diet affects your energy level, mood and even how you feel about yourself. Try to eat regular healthy meals and cut down on sugar and fried food.
3. Get enough sleep
Sleep affects our energy level and mood. Getting a good night sleep and having a fixed sleeping pattern will help us in concentration and memory.
4. Exercise regularly
Exercise keeps us physically and mentally healthy. When we exercise, we release endorphins which reduces stress!
Supporting your friend
Look out for warning signs
People experiencing mental health changes may show changes in the way they behave.
Listen to your friend's experiences
Don't be in a hurry to give advice. Listening is also a way to show that you care.
