18 Self-Improvement Strategies for Mental Health by Ariana DaganMental health is key to our overall health and includes our emotional and psychological wellbeing. Having solid strategies for mental health in place can help buffer or even prevent certain reactions or behaviors from forming in specific scenarios.

It’s a common misconception that mental health only refers to depression or schizophrenia, which simply isn’t true. It may refer to a disorder, it may not. Our mental health dictates how we react to situations, how we handle stress, or how we make decisions. Many of these are shaped during childhood, but so many additional factors go into it as well. For example, biological – we may inherit disorders or genes that make us react in certain ways. We also may experience certain traumatic events throughout our life that alter our brain chemistry. The point is mental health is pivotal to our success in life, which includes having a solid understanding of our current status, maintaining our mental and emotional wellbeing, or managing reactions and symptoms related to a disorder.

NOTE: Please don’t forget, if you are suffering with mental health issues you do NOT have to do it alone. Therapy can help. Whether you need an accountability partner, help managing behaviors or emotions, or simply someone to talk to, there is a therapist for everyone. head to https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists to find a therapist near you, and if money is an issue – talk to your insurance company about therapists that take a sliding scale! 

Today I’ve gathered a list of 18 self-improvement strategies for mental health from bloggers who have been there and want to help you get the most out of your mental and emotional wellbeing. Remember, last week I shared a roundup for quality of life upgrades and over the next few weeks, I will share additional wellness resources including body, and spirit to round us out so stay tuned!
