For Star Patroller and entertainment anchor Gretchen Fullido, it is very important to look after one’s mental health. She thus spoke about ways to boost one’s mental capacity and shared it with fans.
First, she suggested a change of scenery or environment.
“A change of scene or a change of pace is good for your mental health. It could be a five-minute pause from work or from cleaning your house, a half-hour lunch break at work or a weekend exploring somewhere new,” she said in her Instagram page yesterday, Jan. 23, where she can be seen on a beach with her dog.
Second, she advised for people to have “me time” which is time alone with one’s self, because “a few minutes can be enough to de-stress you.”
Third, she believes in taking a break through exercise and making one’s self fit.
“Taking a break may mean being very active — in sports, walking, running, swimming or just about doing any workout or it may also mean not doing very much at all,” she said.
Fourth, relaxing is also a form of improving one’s mental health. The broadcaster advised, “Take a deep breath… and relax. Try yoga or meditation, or just putting your feet up — you can do this wherever you are.”
Lastly, Fullido suggests to “listen to your body” and have enough time to sleep.
“If you’re really tired, give yourself time to sleep. Without good sleep, our mental health suffers too and our concentration goes downhill,” she said. “You deserve to REST. Sometimes the world can wait.” JB
