“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” - The Buddha

Our hectic lifestyle means it's easy to neglect our wellbeing. Here's a mental health checklist to help keep your mind in shape.

• A balanced diet gives the brain the fuel it needs to stay healthy

• Exercise increases energy levels and helps manage anxiety and stress

• Sufficient sleep re-energises and helps maintain mental health. So does relaxation

• Mindfulness helps us focus on the present, and away from worrying

• Learn not to talk to yourself in a negative or destructive way

• Work to improve your self-esteem

• Set goals for your mental health

• Talk about your emotions to trusted people
