Peaasi.ee has developed mental health vitamins, which are essential human needs that should be addressed first to support both physical and mental well-being.
Sleep is crucial for health, including mental well-being. It is a vital pillar of health, along with nutrition and physical activity. Quality sleep involves three elements: duration, continuity, and depth. The length of sleep should be sufficient for the individual to wake up rested and alert the next day. Sleep periods should be continuous, without interruptions (though occasional awakenings 1–2 times during sleep should not be a cause for concern). Sleep should be deep enough to allow both the body and the brain to recover.
Eat regularly and diversely. The brain alone needs 500 calories a day, and it’s crucial to get daily intake of vitamins, minerals, sugars, fats, proteins, and fiber for the body to function properly. For fast-paced and stressful times, stock up on some easy-to-prepare foods that can be quickly consumed even when there’s not enough time for a thorough meal.
GOOD RELATIONSHIPS VITAMIN
Regular communication and maintaining contact with loved ones are associated with shared feelings of joy, finding purpose and meaning in life, making healthier choices, and overall well-being. Communicating with loved ones provides an opportunity to offer emotional support, which can, in turn, extend life expectancy. It’s worth investing in relationships where you can safely open up and people are willing to support and listen to each other. It’s also important to find people who may have similar experiences, whether they are experience advisors, family members, or colleagues. Participating in group activities, talking to friends and acquaintances, and setting suitable boundaries when necessary are recommended.
Physical activity is an important means of maintaining mental health and also promotes good sleep (although not intense exercise right before bedtime). Studies have shown that those engaged in recreational sports are less likely to experience excessive stress compared to those who do not engage in sports. Spending active time outdoors, especially in nature, can reduce heart rate and alleviate fatigue that comes from intense focus and mental work. This, in turn, reduces stress and improves overall health. Movement doesn’t necessarily mean training at a professional athlete’s level and constant self-surpassing. Some days, a couple of small walks, preferably with a good friend, are enough because two vitamins in one give even better results. It’s important to find a movement style that is suitable and enjoyable for you.
POSITIVE EMOTIONS VITAMIN
Positive experiences increase the activity of the dopamine system in the brain, resulting in a happier and more motivated individual. It’s worth consciously practicing bringing positive feelings into life. For this, you need to train a bit because the brain is accustomed to noticing more negative or dangerous things. You can practice positive noticing by listing three good things in your day or three pleasant things about yourself. Or practice seeing gratitude and write down three things you are grateful for.
