Mental health influences the way you think, feel, and behave in daily life. Being   free of depression, anxiety or other psychological problems does not mean you have good mental health.Mental health refers to the presence of positive characteristics.

Here a few tips to boost your mental health

Be Kind

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.

Be Mindful

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

It is said that nature brings out the best in a human being. By simply taking a walk through a park can improve your quality of life.


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

Spending time with negative people can bring us down and spending time with uplifting people allows us to feel a range of positive emotions which results in great mental health.
