by | Oct 27, 2023 | 0 comments

As Halloween decorations and celebrations begin to emerge around us in both California and El Salvador, TYSAH wants to connect with you by shedding light on some “scary” habits that can negatively impact your mental health. These habits may seem daunting, but recognizing and addressing them can lead to profound improvements in your well-being. Let’s explore these six areas in more detail.

1. Not Setting Boundaries

The boundaries you set are essential for your mental health. Without them, you risk overextending yourself, which can lead to stress and burnout. Set clear boundaries in your personal and professional life. Remember, it’s okay to say ‘no’ when necessary.

2. Sleep Deprivation

Sleep is your body’s way of recharging. Depriving yourself of sleep can result in fatigue, increased stress, and mood disturbances. Make sure you prioritize a good night’s rest. Your body and mind will thank you.

3. People Pleasing

Constantly striving to please everyone can be a one-way ticket to mental exhaustion. It’s vital to balance your own needs and priorities. Remember, taking care of yourself should be a priority, too.

4. Suppressing Emotions

Bottling up your emotions can be detrimental to your mental health. It’s crucial to acknowledge and express your feelings. Don’t be afraid to share your thoughts with trusted friends or a therapist. Processing your emotions is a sign of strength, not weakness.

5. Negative Self-Talk

The way you talk to yourself significantly affects your self-esteem and mental well-being. Negative self-talk can chip away at your confidence. Replace self-criticism with self-compassion.
