Meds. I was so against them for so long but they actually gave me my life back.
Exercise is an essential
Stopped caring about what others thought about me, and eating healthier.
Walking more, music, talking back to my bad thoughts with reasoning
Eating healthier, exercising, learning how to budget, setting aside time specifically for doing things I enjoy such as reading books, playing my instruments, etc instead of sitting on my phone all day every day.
Edit: forgot MEDITATING. I know it’s not for everyone but meditation has helped me a ton.
Cut off toxic people around me. 1000% better no matter what. Even if they are family.
Forcing myself into a normal sleep schedule.
Cut out coffee. Exercise. Eat consistently.
It’s a wonder how much these three things will improve things.
Outside. Kind of.
Left Reddit to forget it
Left my hometown after 27 years and quit cooking
Music and Watching anime and avoiding the news, ignoring all hate and learning to laugh more. That what help me a lot especially music, songs I can imagine my self in and being in different world and relaxing.
Get a hobby. A good one. One that you are constantly thinking about what’s next, and you have a new idea and can’t wait to get back to it. Works for me anyway. My mental health takes a nosedive if I don’t have a hobby project.
Going on meds- something I wish I tried 15 years ago!
Accepting myself for all the good and bad. I acknowledge that I make mistakes, and I try to better myself to not repeat those mistakes.
I just don’t give a shit about what bad is told about me,if you don’t like smt in me,just don’t communicate with me
stopped consuming cannabis because it was making me comfortable with inaction, started working out and eating healthy but not in a stressful way. got some more time in nature and went back to therapy. also if you have a chemical imbalance like I do, putting forth the effort to find a medication/treatment that works can be extremely helpful (:
Initially more exercise and cultivating my relationships with close friends.. then therapy… then estranging my self from other unhealthy people; i.e my family… eventually medication because my progress was way too slow… now I’m here healthy, on my own, and feeling like I’m on a potential path to overall life success.
Finding meaning and purpose is highly imperative as well.
This is all a life long journey. There will be ups and downs with psychological health.. even for me.. but so long as we maintain and stay proactive, the blows from the fall can be much softer.
Meet female human
Cutting out toxic family members.
changing psychiatrists and getting a new medication and a psychiatrist that explains things and listens to me
I am looking for a job to help keep me occupied. But the stress in finding one and the emotional swings around interviews are causing me great anxiety
Stopped arguing with random people on the internet.
Dedicate a portion of time to practice gratitude. It helps to see the good in life.
go outside, take care of your gut health.
This may seem off but gore videos it just makes you realize the horrors that you family will see when they find your body with your head gone and blood all over the walls I can just cause more pain in your family it can cause a chain reaction someone else in your family could end it Aswell then another and another you get the picture until you left with a dead family and a whole lot of trauma for the family members who don’t end it.
Stop jerking the chicken.
I get paid over 190$ per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I’ve been doing..
