60 Mental Health Habits

Mental Health is a huge focus for me this lockdown. Last lockdown I struggled, and I am committed to putting things in place this time round to ensure I am challenging myself to not be lax with the importance of caring for myself. 

I have collated a whole heap of healthy mental health habits and listed them below but I have also created TWO downloadable PDFs: a full checklist of 60 mental health habits where you can select which ones to do each day for yourself, and a monthly challenge chart where each exercise is already scheduled in for you. I am personally challenging myself to choose at least one healthy habit a day throughout this month as a way to bring some excitement into each day and keep my mental health up to par. Want to join me?

You can find both PDF's here, and the list is also below
