Boosting Your Overall Wellbeing



By Features Desk



Wednesday, June 5, 2019.



We all want to lead the best lives possible. It’s human nature. But it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to boosting your overall well being. Here are just a few ideas that you might want to consider - they’ll help to get you started out on the right foot!


Enjoy Your Work


The majority of us work for a significant portion of our lives. So it’s important to ensure that the work we undertake is something that we enjoy. There’s no point spending 9-5 slogging away in an office doing something you hate. If you feel you’re stuck in a rut or a dead end job, consider retraining, requalifying, or heading back to education or training programmes that can introduce you into a new field that you might prefer! This can make such a significant difference to your day to day life - it’s more than worth the effort.

Quit Smoking


Smoking is bad for us. We don’t need to be told this. But some people still persist in engaging with it. This is confusing. Not only is smoking expensive, but it is a habit that can eventually kill you, as it greatly increases your risk of developing various life-threatening illnesses and diseases. It can be a struggle to stop smoking, but there is support out there. Consult your doctor if you want specifically tailored advice on quitting. You might want to consider alternatives to make your transition from smoker to non-smoker a little easier and smoother too. Vaping is one option - invest in a pod kit and you’ll be able to use liquids that contain nicotine to wean yourself off. Nicotine gum and patches can prove effective too!


Remember to Prioritise Your Mental Health


As a society, we tend to focus more on physical health than mental health. We’ve grown up in systems where there’s extensive treatment for physical problems and ailments, but where doctors and other medical professionals haven’t known all too much about mental health. In the past, there has also been somewhat of a taboo surrounding the subject. But fortunately, modern medicine is making rapid advancements and, as a society, we are becoming increasingly open when it comes to addressing and talking about mental health issues. So, make sure to keep with the upwards trend and to focus on your mental health. If you feel you are experiencing issues, reach out and talk to someone. This can be a doctor, a helpline, a mental health charity, or friends and family members. You should also engage in activities such as mindfulness, meditation, and other healthy habits.


There are, of course, plenty of other ways you can improve your overall wellbeing. These are just a few different ideas to get you started out in the right direction! Implement them into your lifestyle and you will start seeing positive changes before you know it!
