5 Ways To Prioritize Your Mental Health

Life can get overwhelming but your mental health should be one of your priorities. Here are 5 ways that will help you prioritize your mental health in 2020:

Be selfish- when it comes to your mental health it’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to take some time out to work on your mental health. So if you ever feel overwhelmed or like your mental health may be deteriorating just remember it’s okay to take some time to work on it even though it may seem selfish.

Make “me” time- make sure you are taking some time out every day for some “me” time. It’s important to take some time to relax and do something you enjoy that helps you relax. Even if it means taking some time to do absolutely nothing.

Learn to say no- It’s okay to say no to people/things when you aren’t feeling so great. If you need some time off and just can’t help it you shouldn’t feel guilty for saying no to someone. Explain to them that you don’t feel up to it and can’t help it and if they care about you they will understand.

Learn your triggers- learn what triggers you so that you can avoid it or at least be prepared for it if you can’t avoid it altogether. Furthermore, try to figure out some calming techniques that help you deal with the triggers.

Seek help- If you are truly feeling overwhelmed and as though you need professional help please seek professional help.

  1. Love this! I have been doing my best to prioritize my mental health and day no to even family and friends sometimes. We have to make sure we are looking at the big picture and make sure that we are pouring more care and support I to ourselves versus overextending ourselves for everyone else. 👍🏾 thanks for sharing!

  3. I think most of us has a problem saying “no” and if we do say “no”, we think that we have to follow it up with an excuse, which in actual fact, shouldn’t even be an issue. I have to remind myself constantly that my “no” can just remain that…without an excuse or a reason for it.

    1. I absolutely agree it’s like we’re wired to not say no and feel guilty when we do so we come up with excuses but like you said saying no is okay. You’re allowed to say no.


  4. Love this advice! I am so guilty of putting everything else before my own mental health – mostly my uni work! It’s great to have this reminder

  6. This is great advice for everyone! I especially like the tip on saying no. It’s helpful to be reminded that saying no shouldn’t make you feel guilty. And all your tips are interrelated. Sometimes saying no is a form of self-care and being selfish. Good post! I enjoyed it.


    1. Thank you! Saying no is definitely very important and can sometimes be necessary. It’s something that we tend to feel guilty about but honestly you should not feel bad for prioritizing yourself.
