You are not alone.

We all have good days and bad days, including you and me.

However, if negative feelings like stress, anxiety and fear have started to affect your daily life, it's important to find out
what's happening and what you can do about it.

Keeping well goes a long way.
Healthy mindset

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.

Eat well

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.

Sleep

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.

Exercise

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.

Talk to your friend

Have the conversation in a familiar, non-intimidating and private space.

Seek help together

You may not have all the answers, but it's okay. Encourage your friend to seek professional help.
