1.Get plenty of sleep. Sleep is very important for our physical and mental health. If we don't get enough sleep, we can start to feel depressed or anxious.
2. Eat well. Try to eat a balanced diet. The lack of certain vitamins can give us low moods.
3. Get plenty of Sunlight. Sunlight is a great source of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps our brain to release chemicals which help our moods.
4. Activity and exercise. Activity and exercise are essential in maintaining good mental health, they can help eliminate low mood, anxiety, stress and feeling tired and lazy.
5. Ask for help! One of the most important ways to keep yourself mentally healthy is to recognise when you're not feeling good, and to know when to ask for help. There's no shame in asking someone for support if you're feeling low or stressed.
