Mental Health 101: Be Happier

If there is one thing that you must prioritize in life at the moment, it is to see to it that you are happy wherever you go and whatever you do. Make sure that you have improved mental health at all times. Keep in mind that failure to make all these things happen can have adverse effects in your life. Take note that many people nowadays are suffering from depression and panic disorders because they have neglected their mental wellness. Because of this, there is a need for you to take care of yourself before it is too late.

The idea that just because we want something means that we can have it is a throwback to the typical mindset of a 2-year-old who is just testing out the boundaries of her power. — Suzanne Degges-White Ph.D.


In this article, we are going to share some of the practical techniques that you can use to help you stay on the right track to living a life that is full of happiness. Before anything else, you have to believe that you can do whatever you set your mind do. You have a powerful mind that can transform thoughts into action. As such, you must learn how to program your mind to accomplish happiness all the time. Here are the other tips to remember:

Build Strong Relationships


One of the aspects of your life that you must focus on is your relationship with other people. As much as possible, you must find time to establish long-lasting friendships with the right individuals. Do not be afraid to cut ties to those who do not add any value to your day or overall wellness. At the same time, be sure to establish meaningful connections with your family members. The more you spend time with the best people in your life, the happier you will become.

The cognitive distortions can subsequently result in the individual experiencing undue anxiety, depression, and negative self-feelings. — Jeremy Nicholson M.S.W., Ph.D.


Avoid Stressing Yourself Out

Be sure to determine the stressors in your life and keep them away from you. Do not wait before they consume your happy or positive vibes. Keep in mind that the more you keep yourself around these stressors, the higher the possibility there is for you to suffer depression. For example, if your work becomes too hard to handle, do not be afraid to quit. Sometimes, you have to learn how to move away from those that will only make your life a living hell. Avoid anything that can add a burden to your days.

Being mindful of our eating, drinking, and sleeping habits, physical activity levels, social activities, online activities, and regular engagement in other self-care practices will contribute to your resiliency in the face of stress. Taking a slow, deep breath may help as well. — Marni Amsellem, PhD

Be Grateful Always

Another thing that you must master is the art of being grateful at all times. Look for all the blessings that you have received in your life. Be sure to recognize all of them. Do not just sit in the corner and keep on complaining about what is going on in your life. The right thing to do is to take a break and reminisce. Look back to how your life has been amazing for the past few years. Learn how to say thank you to the right circumstances and people in your life. Having gratitude in your day-to-day life can contribute a lot in improving your mental health.
