Here a few tips to boost your mental health
Performing kind acts increases positive emotions. Start with small gestures such as writing a thank you letter to someone, giving genuine compliments to strangers, making people smile.
When we pay attention to what we see, hear, smell, taste and feel during everyday activities, we feel more positive, curious about the world and improve our focus by minimising stress.
Be close to Nature

Laughter indeed is the best medicine. Laughing is a great way to release endorphins which makes you happy. Watch a comedy show, play games or listen to podcasts of favourite comedians.
Connect with positive people
