We all go through stressful and challenging moments. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and unable to cope.  We would really need a helping place where finding silence and balance and where being in peace with our thoughts and  concerns.

We are  certified Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA). And we would like to let you know that we are here to be by your side, empowering you to access the support you might need to recover  your positive wellbeing, by guiding you to further health sources – whether that’s self-help tips, recommended reading, providing helping contacts or further helping resources.

mental health TIPS

Mental Health Tips

Exercise and Physical Activity

Getting regular exercise is really important for our mental health, and even just taking relaxing walks can be soothing for our mind. Physical activity can prevent or delay the onset of different mental disorders, and have therapeutic benefits. 

Zschucke, E., Katharina Gaudlitz and A. Ströhle. “Exercise and Physical Activity in Mental Disorders: Clinical and Experimental Evidence.” Journal of Preventive Medicine and Public Health 46 (2013): S12 – S21.

Nutrition 

A healthy diet can help us, as the strong connection between our intestines and brain is being explored. There is an emerging discipline, nutritional neuroscience, which is shedding light on the fact that nutritional factors are directly related to emotions, behaviour, and cognition.

Deep breathing 

Deep breathing technique has an improvement in the management of stress in daily life, and involves positive influence on the stress conditions that we all face during the course of our lives. This is particularly important in students. This study analyses this fact.
