In the mad rush of today’s world, self care is a must. It’s easy for issues with your mental health to get out of control and leave you struggling to cope. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you understand some of the key steps that you can take to refresh your mind and get back on track.
Reconnect With Nature for the Ultimate in Self Care
One of the things that you should consider doing is reconnecting with nature. As humans, we respond best when we are outside, and we always feel instantly better when we are closer to the Earth.
We are made of the earth, these bones and flesh that we are. One of the best ways to reconnect with nature is to spend some time soaking up its’ vibrations.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, but your mental health comes first and taking time to balance your body, intellect and spirit surrounded by the trees, breathing in that fresh air is a fantastic way to do it.
Remember as soon as you get out and in nature you are less likely to get bathed in all the Electro Magnetic Frequencies of man’s making. These EMF’s cause havoc to the body’s natural bio-rhythms.
Want something more challenging to do in nature? There’s nothing quite like a hike up a mountain to make you feel at one with the world, seeing those beautiful views when you reach the top. It can help you gain a healthy perspective on life.
Learn To Relax For Mental Health
While it might sound obvious, you should also focus on learning to relax more and ensure that the pressure or stress in your life doesn’t build. The top mental health treatment centres will always focus on helping clients relax and de-tress while also avoiding the triggers that cause tension.

Take A Cold Shower
It’s also worth giving cold showers a try. While this can be difficult to get used to at first, there’s no doubt that it will provide mental health benefits as well as physical fitness advantages. If you are struggling to turn the temp down, then start gradually. Alternatively, you can think about completing a workout to ensure that you are hot before you take a soak.
Not only will this cleanse your psychic field but it will help strengthen your adrenal glands which are important to be able to stay calm and relaxed.
Here is a double approach to activating the deep happiness molecules. Find a crystal clear creek, lake or river out in nature. Getting out in the cold, wild waters with the plant life and blue skies is truly healing.
Want to go a step further? Consider ice therapy. It has been shown to provide mental health benefits when approached in the correct way. I remember being out in Scottsdale at an alternative health clinic not too long ago and the cryo-therapy sessions were absolutely awesome. They help to ease inflammation and definitely recharge and refresh your mind.
Improve Your Diet
Finally, if you are wanting to refresh your mind then it is essential you are eating the right types of food. Your diet should be high in healthy, non rancid fats and organic, vibrant produce rich in greens. Your brain is over 60% fat so it needs nourishment to keep you stable and refreshed.
Drink plenty of purified water. This is paramount to feeling mentally refreshed.
These all provide the goodness and nutrition that your mind needs to function. A diet that is high in processed, sugary, and unhealthy food can make your body and mind feel sluggish, so be sure to avoid these.
