Ride an emotional high

Treat your body to a dose of good mental health

Too often we go through life stressed or worried. Believe it or not, that mental turmoil can affect our everyday lives, both at work and at home. Here are some tips from HealthJockey.com on how to improve your mental health.

Socialize: Whether you have a tight-knit group of friends or a wide array of acquaintances, get out and mingle with them! And make it a point to meet new people. Talking about your day and exchanging pleasantries can immediately boost your mood.

Say ‘no’ to revenge: No matter what Cathy in the next office said about you at the last company barbecue, don’t sink to her level—you’re more likely to feel guilt than pleasure from it.

Giggle a little: Laughter truly can be the best medicine.

Don’t try to be perfect: A healthy dose of competition can be good for your work ethic, but perfectionism and obsessing over every detail can only lead to stress.
