Take Care of Yourself
Helping a friend though a mental health struggle can be stressful so it is important to practice self care for yourself. Here are some tips to help you manage your mental health.
- Get some exercise - even just taking a walk outside can trigger endorphins in your body, which can help improve your mood.
- Get support for yourself - find someone to confide in, a friend or professional. You can still keep your friend's struggles confidential by talking about the any stress or struggles you are experiencing.
- Sleep! Make sure you're getting enough rest.
- Eat healthy - help your body get the nourishment it needs. Take care of yourself. Try comfort foods.
