When you do the every day/week things that you do for your physical health, be aware that there are many easy ways to do things towards bettering your mental health, too. And you should be doing these things in order to be truly healthy and happy in your life.
So, when you think about doing a basic thing for your physical health, why not think of these things for your mental health, too?

Plenty of water -> mindfulness
Walking -> get outside

There’s so much more that I haven’t put here that you can try, too. Make these a part of your daily routine and you’re on to a win! Incorporate your own self-care routines into your life, then when the mental health difficulties do come, you’ll be better equipped to deal with it.
