At times life can be incredibly stressful with the presuures of work, relationships and mental health, so it’s important to remember to do little things each day that take care of you. To help, I’ve put together a list of 6 ways to ensure you’re living a happy and healthy life:
Spend Time With The People You Love
Although it may seem obvious, spending time with the people you love is a great way to ensure you’re living a happy life. Whether it’s your friends or your family, these people will know exactly how to put a smile on your face.
Make sure you’re making time each week to spend time with the people you love, giving you that all important work-life balance you need.
Find A Hobby You Enjoy
It may be cliche, but finding a hobby you really enjoy can really help improve your mood. Having a hobby that you love doing gives you something to look forward to and is often a chance to meet people with a similar interest. Whether you take up blogging, start arts and crafts or start attending events for a fandom you’re part of – having a hobby to turn to will help on those days you feel you have nothing to do.
Eat Well, Get Lots Of Exercise and Drink At Least 2L Of Water A Day
This goes without saying, but eating well, ensuring you’re getting exercise and drinking at least 2L of water a day will help keep your body in good shape. You don’t necessarily have to diet, but ensuring you’re listening to your body and looking after it by moving about is the best place to start if you want to start living a healthier life.
Go For Regular Check Ups And Visit Your Doctor If There’s Something Wrong
Ensuring you take the time to see your doctor is important for a healthy lifestyle, even though it may be unpleasent.

Reduce Your Screen Time
Spending a lot of time staring at your phone can be incredibly bad for your mental health, especially if you’re scrolling through social media platforms endlessly. Platforms like Facebook and Instagram often have the ability to make us feel as though we’re not doing enough, just because someones life appears better than ours. With that in mind, reducing the amount of time you’re on these apps could drastically improve your mental health.
