Health Article - Coping with Mental Health

Mental illness covers a huge array of symptoms, from anger management to depression and anxiety. These are made worse by any stress, whether physical (e.g. bad diet), environmental (e.g. too much screen time), or emotional (e.g. a change in working practices).

COVID 19 has added to these stresses making it an extra challenging time for everyone.

If you are someone feeling as if you are finding it difficult to cope, here are some practical ideas to help get you through.

1. Ask for help. Even asking to talking things through with someone without directly asking for help can be very positive. If someone is too busy or not interested, maybe they are having difficulties themselves. Asking for help is something which many of us find difficult to do. It is very often the case that you don’t realise that you need help until things feel out of control. The NHS has a list of websites and phone numbers for a variety of different needs. To access, do a Google search typing in ‘mental health helpline’. If you don’t have internet access the Samaritans have a phone line - 116 123 – that can help point you in the right direction.

2. Try to do things that you know are good for you even though you may not feel like doing them at the time, then make it part of your daily routine e.g. a walk in the park or on the beach.

3. Try to eat well. You may know that your diet is awful, however, just a small change can really help to make you feel better. Really. I’ve seen it with my own eyes and there are scientific studies available that show this to be the case. For example, taking sugary, fizzy and diet drinks out of your diet. Even some of the so-called healthy juices are very sugary and not good for mental health by disturbing blood sugar. Other suggestions could be to avoid processed foods, sugar, white floured goods (cakes and pastries), fried foods, crisps, too much tea, coffee and alcohol. Include as many fresh vegetables as possible and oily fish have important omega 3 essential fatty acids that are vital for physical and mental health. Part of a nutritional therapy consultation would involve a dietary assessment to make sure that you are eating a balanced diet.

4. Avoid people and places that make you feel bad. This can be very tricky if it happens to be at work or a family member. This is different from a scenario that is challenging to you and makes you feel uncomfortable but ultimately gets you where you want to go, as this is how we grow and become better people. Being aware that there is an issue goes someway to trying to work out a solution whether it’s your outlook that needs to change or whether someone else has the problem. 

5. Try to manage your finances. has a good ‘Debt Management’ page to help you through. The sooner that the issue is addressed, the better and it’s never too late to start.

6. Daily sessions of mindfulness, meditation, prayer or yoga is clinically proven to help you feel better as part of a plan. YouTube's - Boho Beautiful holds online yoga and pilates classes for all levels in lovely countryside and wilderness. HeadSpace App is a popular mindfulness option. Check your local church to see if it’s open for private meditation. Churches can be very calming places.

7. Make sure you are getting enough sleep. This is very important and a lot of mental illness can be traced back to not getting enough quality and quantity of sleep. 7-9 hours a night is the usual guideline. A bedtime routine is a good place to start. Get away from your devices an hour or 2 before bedtime thereby reducing blue light exposure or use night time mode/blue light blocking glasses. Do something that relaxes you in the hours before bed rather than something stimulating such as playing a game. Herb teas such as Melissa (lemon balm) and chamomile are good to go to bed with. A lavender essential oil bath (Weleda Lavender Bath Milk) helps to cool the interior of the body which induces sleep (the opposite of what you would think, I know) and make sure your bedroom is cool. Try to avoid eating anything heavy later on in the evening as this can disturb sleep. Try to get a decent amount of daylight during the day as this supports your natural sleep cycle. Nowadays there are sleep trackers that can help you see how well you are sleeping which may be worth investing in.
