Your physical health and mental health are very much connected and often affect each other. For those living with physical conditions, you must not forget about your well-being and taking time for personal care.
Here are some top tips for improving your well-being.

When your mobility is restricted, you may feel like you’re missing out on social events but there are plenty of other ways to stay connected. Don’t be scared to reach out to people, start conversations and stay social. Having a good network around you is great for your mental health as it can boost self-esteem and ensure that you have people to talk to during your highs and lows.
Getting enough sleep is essential for your physical health and overall well-being. Try to go to bed at a similar time every night and avoid staying up late as this can cause fatigue and low mood.
If you can, get out and about as much as you can with the support of mobility aids. Fresh air is great for clearing your mind and a change of scenery, this can relieve anxiety and give you a boost of physical and mental energy.
Just because your physical health has changed, you shouldn’t stop doing what makes you happy. Take up a new hobby or revisit an activity you used to love. If you’re feeling down, having something you can do to take your mind off things or fill up your day can improve your well-being in a big way.
