Enjoy a slow morning

Once or twice a week enjoy a slow start that helps you recharge before a busy day. Sit down and think through everything important, meditate or enjoy a little lazing, it's up to you. Probably nobody wants to have their sleep interrupted by a loud alarm clock. That is why you should enjoy a long sleep without it.


Then have a cup of tea or coffee on a soft carpet with a short meditation or contemplation. Let your thoughts flow freely and recharge your batteries for a whole day. Don't forget your favorite breakfast. A healthy and balanced diet also has a significant impact on our psyche.


You can find healthy breakfast porridge or muesli at the Bioorganics store.

Do anything creative

Not everybody is a genius, but each of us is a creator. You can create in a studio as well as in the garden, theater, or workshop. Or in your living room. The process is more important than the result. You can paint, play with clay, embroider or assemble a model kit. Maybe the result will not be perfect, but no one will take away the experience gained while creating.

Take a walk in the woods

Mental and physical health are closely linked. In order to keep both of them fit, you should not forget to get enough exercise. Regular exercise boosts self-confidence and, thanks to it, the hormone of happiness, endorphin, is flushed into the body.


Of course, we should not neglect our diet. However, if you do not like physical exercise, walks in the woods are very suitable, even ideal. Fresh air, silence, and the rustling of the leaves for a few hours a week have miraculous effects on our psyche.


Don't forget to wear warm clothes – if you are looking for a nice, affordable and trendy jacket, feel free to go to Sinsay.

Play regardless of the fact you are an adult

Scientists say playful people feel better, they are more resistant to stress, and more attractive. Soccer icon David Beckham once said he likes to play with Lego to get rid of stress.


When David Cameron acted as the British Prime Minister, at the end of a long day in the office he used to play Angry Birds. The positive impact of playing games on children is known, and today the scientists are turning their attention to adults.


It’s not about lazing and skipping from work. Games are important in relieving stress and contribute to a person's overall well-being. If you are a fan of board games, you can find a huge offer in the Panta Rhei bookstore.

Express thankfulness towards yourself and compliment yourself

Since we are expected to achieve maximum performance everywhere, we tend to compare ourselves with others. But there are billions of people in the world and everybody is different. Everyone excels in different fields and also you have your strong sides.


Think about what you are good at and what you like about yourself. Stand in front of the mirror and say this affirmation out loud. Since we are the strongest critics when it comes to ourselves, we should also be able to compliment ourselves.

Remember that just like it’s important to keep yourselves fit, it’s important to take care of your mental health. Especially in present times, when more and more people are suffering from depression, anxiety, or paranoia. Being healthy mentally means enjoying life and being able to cope with everyday problems.
