5 Ways to Invest in Your Mental Health in 2024

Hypnosis for mental health

As the clock strikes midnight and the new year dawns, many of us set resolutions with the hope of positive change. Among the most popular aspirations are commitments to lose weight, stress less, and get more sleep. However, almost half of resolution-makers find themselves too busy to stick to their goals throughout the new year.

The end of the year is notorious for its hustle and bustle, and it’s easy to get caught up in the chaos. Amidst the seasonal cheer, it’s crucial to acknowledge the toll this period can take on our mental well-being. Juggling work commitments, social obligations, and personal expectations can be overwhelming. Taking moments to prioritise your own well-being and mental health becomes crucial in maintaining balance.

There are many things that you can do to better yourself, but here is our list of five ways to invest in yourself for 2024 and beyond!


Create a Healthy Relationship with Social Media

In an era dominated by digital connectivity, social media has become an integral part of our lives, with the average person spending more than two hours per day on various platforms. Yet, it can be a source of stress and anxiety. Next year, consider establishing a healthier relationship with social media. 

It’s crucial to be mindful of how social media influences your emotions and well-being. Assess whether certain profiles inspire positive feelings or contribute to a sense of inadequacy. Try a digital detox and reflect on whether you genuinely enjoy certain content or if it triggers feelings of discontent. Establishing your own boundaries with social media is essential.


Track Your Mental Health Progress

Just as we track our mental health, monitoring our emotional well-being is crucial. Understanding your moods and emotions can provide valuable insights, especially if you experience periods of sadness, anger, or anxiety without apparent triggers. The process of tracking your mental health might unveil surprising patterns. You may begin to notice how seemingly insignificant factors can significantly influence your mood.

By consistently tracking your emotional well-being, you create an opportunity for self-reflection. Consider this tracking process as a tool for self-awareness, enabling you to make intentional changes that lead to a more positive and balanced mental outlook.

Here are some great resources for you to get started on mood tracking:

  • Daylio (iPhone / Android)
  • Use a Bullet Journal


Prioritise Being Present

In the whirlwind of modern life, it’s easy to lose sight of the present moment. Not primarily due to extensive phone usage, but rather stemming from a propensity for the mind to gravitate towards stress-inducing thoughts when engaging with partners or friends. Embrace mindfulness practices such as meditation and deep breathing exercises to anchor yourself in the here and now.

Another effective approach involves the practice of redirecting attention back to the current moment. If you notice your mind wandering away from the present, a simple yet powerful technique is to concentrate on your breathing and re-engage with the current activity. While admittedly easier said than done, the entire year provides you with ample opportunities for refining this skill and nurturing a more profound sense of presence.


Organise Your Home

An untidy and disorganised living space has a profound effect on your emotional and mental well-being. The presence of excess clutter often gives rise to feelings of stress and anxiety. Taking the initiative to declutter and organise your home can start your transformative journey toward a healthier mindset. 

Decluttering plays a crucial role in improving sleep patterns, uplifting mood, and promoting relaxation. By investing time and effort into creating an organised living environment, you pave the way for not only a tidier space but also a more tranquil and balanced mental state.


Try Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a versatile and powerful tool for addressing various mental health challenges. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, or seeking assistance with weight loss or smoking cessation, hypnotherapy offers a holistic and effective approach.
