Our mentality is probably the most exhausted feature of our whole wellbeing. By keeping a sound mind, we
are able to keep track of our physical condition as well as our spiritual health. Sometimes, we feel so confused
and pressured and just mentally overworked, and when you feel that, that’s a sign that you need to take a break
and refresh your brain a little.
Here are my top ways of improving your mental health:

1.) Reduce cholesterol intake.
-       High levels of cholesterol puts a person at risk of acquiring or developing dementia and/or Alzheimer’s
disease. Reducing cholesterol intake helps the brain get a breathing room and helps keep it fit and performing
at its best.

2.) Use memory techniques.
-       Memory techniques can not only increase your memory, they can also help optimize your brain to its
full potential.

3.) Get plenty of R&R.
-      Getting 8 hours of sleep per day is not enough, although it is good. It is also important to set aside a
couple of hours each day to relax and enjoy our lives. This is vital because this helps our brain de-stress and
de-clog itself from things that slow it down.

4.) Learn when and how to say “No!”.
-       If you think your brain has had enough pressure and stress, then it’s high time to say “No!” to a
particular task or job. It’s very vital to keep your mental health from being strained in order to perform
functionally.
5.) Out-think yourself.
-        It’s not rare for people to forget little things, like passwords PINs, or even simple items in your grocery
lists. It’s completely normal and understandable. However, this simple feat usually causes other people to get
stressed easily and also stress the people surrounding him. Keep a list of important things like PINs, passwords
etc. in different places that only you and a trusted person know about.

6.) Be organized.
-      By keeping the little stresses from coming up, you help your brain get its much needed R&R. Keeping
an uncluttered desk or room gives your brain more time and space to focus on much more important things.

7.) Communicate more often.
-      Sometimes little things that would tick us of or annoy us would come up, and yes, again, that is normal.
But what we don’t know is that when we let these little annoying things pile up in our heads, we’re also putting
pressure on our brains. So what’s important is to communicate whatever it is that is bothering you. You not
only let it out, you also let your brain breathe.

8.) Practice meditation.
-      15 minutes worth of meditation is probably the best treat you could offer your brain. Meditation not
only relaxes you, it also keeps your brain fit.

9.) Read something new.
-        If you’re so used to reading mentally challenging books, why not try reading light contemporary ones?
Your brain will not only get a much needed mental exercise, you also get to let it rest by removing the pressure
it gets from the previous books you read.

10.) Learn a new skill.
-      By learning a new skill, you exercise your memory and you also keep the brain working at its best
without the added mental pressure.
