3 Ways to Quiet the Mind for a Mental Health Boost

By Genevieve Cunningham

Taking care of mental health is very important for personal well-being. When our mental status suffers, we can’t function in life to the best of our ability. We might feel the effects of poor mental health in multiple ways, and everyday suffering is almost unavoidable. So how can we protect ourselves from these negative side effects? Besides getting professional help when needed (which is a great idea!), it can be beneficial to learn how to quiet the mind in order to lower stress. To get you started toward a quiet mind and better mental health, take a look at these tips.

Meditate

Meditation is a funny practice. It's actually an ancient method, and yet it often gives off a new age vibe. In the beginning, meditation is a little bit difficult. Sit still for how long? Stop thinking? But it's easier than you think. Set aside a simple five minutes or so and sit in silence. Don't try to stop your thoughts; just let them pass through. You may feel silly at first, but with some practice, you'll find your mind and life more peaceful than ever.

Get in Nature

Nature has a way of bringing about a sense of calm. Those who take regular walks in nature are known to have less stress, lower blood pressure, and a more positive perspective about life. If you want to bring about a little peace of mind, get outside and breathe fresh air at least once a day. The benefits to both your body and mind are abundant and tough to ignore.

Gently Exercise

Exercise requires you to take the mental load that is currently causing you strife, and direct it toward physical activity. This forces mental stress relief and helps keep the mind calm and quiet, even if it's only for the duration of your workout. If you want to make sure it's an exercise you can keep up, do something gentle like walking or yoga. A regular routine might help keep the stress and worry away for better health and a more peaceful mind every day.

Protecting and improving mental health is possible. You’ll have to make it a priority and actively work to calm the nerves and mind, but it's something that just about anyone can achieve. Use these tips to get started, and watch your mental well-being improve like never before.
