Taking good care of yourself is paramount as it will increase the likelihood that you stay well and happy
Exercise Regularly: Just 30 minutes of walking every day can help boost your mood and improve your health. Small amounts of exercise add up, so don’t be discouraged if you can’t do 30 minutes at one time.
Meditate: Meditation not only helps calm, but also helps with anxiety and depression. To get started, all you need is a few minutes each day. Later you may want to work up to 10, 20, or 30 minutes.
Eat Healthy, Regular Meals and Stay Hydrated: A balanced diet with lots of fruits, vegitables and plenty of water can improve your energy and focus throughout the day. Also, limit caffeinated beverages such as soft drinks or coffee.
Sleep Well: Stick to a schedule, and make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Blue light from devices and screens can make it harder to fall asleep, so reduce blue light exposure from your phone or computer before bedtime.
Set Goals and Priorities: Decide what must get done now and what can wait. Learn to say “no” to new tasks if you start to feel like you’re taking on too much. Try to be mindful of what you have accomplished at the end of the day, not what you have been unable to do.
Seek Help: If it’s safe to do so, talking openly and honestly with your parents or guardian about your problems. If it’s not safe for you to talk with your family, it may be most beneficial to consult another trusted adult such as a mentor, teacher or counsellor on what steps you should take in your situation.
