Someone weighed down mentally, is doing their body just as much harm as the physically sick. Should you feel this way, now is the best time to give your mood a boost. Having a coconut oil treat or an apple is a great way to start. Several things may also increase your sulky mood. These are air pollution in your home during winter, or maybe just the overall cold wet weather. This can dampen your mood, and manifest itself in the form of a headache or fatigue. It is not impossible however, to improve your feelings and well-being. Should you find yourself a little under the weather, you can take these steps to start healing mentally.

Firstly, take several short breaks during the day, and refresh yourself with a cup of green tea. Not only is it tasty, but it has lots of health benefits.

Replace driving to work on mornings, (should your circumstances allow it), to cycling to work. Enjoy the fresh air. This is a great form of exercise and it helps the environment.

Do you love a more aggressive form of exercise? Then use a treadmill. During cold periods it can help keep your heart healthy.

Research has shown, that when under stress our mind plays tricks on us. If it’s not a headache, it’s a pain in the leg, back and so on. Chronic pain is serious, thus some effortless methods to reduce same can be used.

Are you a woman? Is it your weight that’s the cause of your mental stress? An increase in oestrogen can help. This is known to suppress the production of fat.

Overall, try to remain confident as much as possible, and remember your happiness is here now. Procrastinating about the future will only add to your mental stress, leaving you in a worse place.

Get involved in the things you love. Treat yourself to a healthy pizza, try a popular fitness trend. These are all honest ways to help you heal internally and to move forward.
