5 Ways To Look After Your Mental Health This New Year

While the fresh start of a New Year offers a chance to reset, the high expectations during this time can be tough on our mental health. The pressure to set ambitious resolutions and the general theme of self-improvement can be overwhelming. Looking after your mental health during this time is so important, so we’re here to share a few things you can do to help you feel your best this New Year.


Embrace Restful Resolutions

Rather than setting unrealistic New Year’s goals, why not embrace restful resolutions? Be kinder to yourself when thinking about the things you’d like to achieve, and contemplate how these achievements will make you feel, rather than how they look to other people. These could be simple resolutions such as decluttering your space or trying something new.

Prioritise Your Routine

It’s easy to slip out of a routine during the festivities of Christmas, so the New Year is a great time to get back on track. Routines offer a sense of stability and structure, something we all need after a busy December. They also make it easier to introduce healthy habits into your daily life, so you can make time for the things that make you feel good; such as exercise, meditation and regular breaks.

Connect With Family and Friends

The New Year can often bring feelings of loneliness, as everyone hibernates after the holidays. Even though it may feel dark and gloomy, it’s still important to make time to connect with family and friends. Feelings of isolation can negatively affect our mental health, and spending time with loved ones boosts our mood and overall wellbeing. Take this as a sign to invite your friends or family over for a catch up, and remember to light an uplifting candle to scent your space.

Tidy Your Space

You know what they say; a tidy space is a tidy mind. Not only does a cluttered environment cause feelings of overwhelm, it can also impact productivity and your ability to focus. Decluttering and organising your space is a great way to reset in the New Year, and the act of tidying promotes mindfulness and creates a space for self-care. By decluttering, you not only clear your physical surroundings but also your mind, bringing a sense of mental clarity.

Try Something New

The New Year can often feel dark and gloomy, and it can be difficult to find things that bring you joy. Trying something new is a great way to step out of your comfort zone and offer a sense of achievement, while exploring new passions and interests that you can continue throughout the year. It can be anything big or small; whether that’s starting a new class you’ve always wanted to try, or challenging yourself to something you’ve never had the courage to do, like going on a solo date.
