Mental Health at Work: 3 Tips That Really Work

By Genevieve Cunningham

Work and mental health. Do these two things even go together? For anyone who spends massive amounts of time at work, the struggle between maintaining a healthy work life and protecting mental health is real. Too much work means more stress, which leads to a decline in mental wellness. It's a frustrating predicament. But finding the balance in these two important aspects of life is really important for long-term health and wellness. So what can we do? If you're interested in protecting your mental health at work, take a look at these tips to get you moving in the right direction. 

Stay Away From Gossip

Gossip will only bring you down. While it might seem like you're bonding with your coworkers at the time, you'll feel dragged down by the gossip later in the day  and especially in the days to come. You'll begin to view work as a negative environment, mostly because you've put yourself in a negative situation. Soon, work will be an even bigger stress and an even bigger drain on your mental well-being. If you're not interested in this cycle, just say no to office gossip.

Go Home on Time

One of the best ways to stay positive about work is to go home on time. Don't burn the midnight oil if you can at all avoid it. Don't come in hours early. Basically, don't live at work! This helps you gain some work-life balance, which can help you keep a much healthier state of mental wellness, both on the clock and on your off time.

Stay on Task

Mental health at work is bound to suffer when you allow your work to pile up. While this is sometimes unavoidable, we often get behind based on our own actions. If you're a procrastinator, work to end this dreadful habit. When you're assigned work, do it right away. If you have multiple tasks to complete, work on only one at a time. This approach lowers your stress and helps you focus, which can help keep your mental health in balance day in and day out.

Since we spend so much time working, keeping mental health in check at work is crucial for long-term health and happiness. But as we all know, this is can be quite a difficult task. Use these tips to help you find a little balance and to boost your chances of staying mentally well. Your health matters, so take a few steps in the right direction and enjoy the positive changes in your life.
