Staying Mentally Healthy on the Job: Tips That Work

By Genevieve Cunningham

Mental health is such an important part of our overall wellness. While our physical well-being matters, the state of our mental health affects every aspect of who we are and how we experience life. While mental health can be affected by many things, one thing that really seems to affect well-being is our work. We spend massive amounts of time there, and it gives us a personal sense of self-worth. No wonder it affects mental health! In order to protect your mental health for good, take a look at these tips for boosting mental wellness at work.

Learn to Say No When Necessary

Most of the time at work, saying yes is important. We want to be seen as go-getters or even like slight overachievers. But when your mental health is at stake, it’s more important than ever to learn how to use the word no. When we get ourselves too busy, it can lead to excessive stress, which then leads to poor mental health. If you’re trying to stay mentally well at work, use the word no wisely.

Don’t Procrastinate

Procrastination is a habit of almost everyone, and it’s one of the worst habits we can keep. Procrastination often means higher stress levels because we put everything off until the last minute. As the deadline approaches, we begin to panic, causing a burst of stress in the body. If this pattern is continued over and over again, our mental health may eventually begin to suffer. To avoid this, tackle projects and deadlines as they are assigned, and do your best to end the pattern of procrastination.

Get Some Positive Friends

Your work friends can make or break your experience. If you hang around with those who view everything at work in a negative light, you’re likely to start feeling the same way. Avoid this by making friends with those who view things in a positive light. They’ll help to boost your perspective and keep you feeling good about life and work in general. And the more positive you can stay, the healthier you’ll be able to keep your mental state.

Work can be stressful and demanding, which is a combination that could lead to poor mental health. In order to protect yourself, use these tips on a daily basis. With some preventative measures, you can protect your mental wellness, love your job, and feel more productive and fulfilled than ever.
