Resist the urge to engage in unhealthy habits
When we’re feeling down, it can be hard to resist the temptation to indulge in forms of instant gratification – which, for many, involves sugary snacks, a cigarette or sitting motionless in front of a TV show. As enticing as this may seem, try to avoid adopting habits that, in the long run, will likely make you feel worse. Instead, put your energy into a healthy habit or activity that will evoke feelings of accomplishment.
Although feelings of stress and anxiety are common, thankfully, we have the ability to try and suppress them, bringing feelings of happiness and positivity to the surface. No matter how busy you may be, remember to take the time you need to look after your health and wellbeing.
