Mental wellbeing describes your mental state – how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life.
Looking after your mental wellbeing isn’t something you should only do if you’re struggling, feeling low, anxious or stressed. It’s actually something you should think about all the time and really invest in, the same way you look after your physical health.
Having good mental health can help you to sleep better, feel better and do the things you want to do. It can also help you to have more positive relationships with people around you.
Looking after your mental health now is good for you and it can also help you to deal with and manage difficult times in the future. It may also reduce your risk of physical health problems. Don’t wait till it’s a problem to understand your mental wellbeing.
Making changes to your everyday life can help you to improve your mental wellbeing. It can also help to prevent some problems from developing or getting worse.
