There are so many errands you have to run during the day, and scrolling the feed would only remind you about them while keeping your mind under pressure. Instead, devote the first 20 minutes of this hour to meditation (it significantly helps to reduce stress, disturbing thoughts, and concern), the next 20 minutes to a relaxing shower, and the last 20 minutes to reading some paper books and talking with your beloved ones.
You can also write down all your thoughts that disturbed you during the day on paper. That’s how you will tie up loose ends with all the bad things and emotions. Don’t be afraid to write them, it’s a kind therapy that lets them go away from your mind. It makes you free. Mental health directly depends on the way you think every day, whether you tend to overthink or create problems out of nothing. Reducing bad vibrations before hitting the hay allows to boost your mental health.
