How to set your mind up for success

Life can be full of surprises, and we all face challenges from time to time, but there are some routines that can help keep your mind healthy. Incolink shares some key tips.

How to set your mind up for success

Move your body after work

You’re active all day everyday but intentional exercise can help release stress. Lifting weights, yoga, boxing or going for a 30-minute walk are just some of the ways to finish your day well, reduce the feeling of stress and manage your wellbeing.

Prioritise what matters

There’s often a long list of things to do that can feel overwhelming. So, break down those jobs into small, manageable tasks. To helpthere are a few questions you can ask yourself:

  • Does this all need to be done today?
  • What are the steps to get what needs to be done today?
  • What is the most important task on my list?

Having a list in the notes app on your phone or on paper can help visualise the daily list and the longer-term list, and you can look forward to the hit of dopamine when you tick something off.

Check in with yourself

Take some time think about how much sleep you’re getting, how much downtime you are carving out, how hydrated you are and what type of content you’re consuming.

Prevention over cure is the way to go when it comes to handling stress.

The more mentally resilient you are prior to stressful situations occurring the less a stressful event will impact you. So, whether it be on social media, reading books or listening podcasts, maybe you could consider a personal-development or health and wellbeing feed, podcast or book next time.

You don’t have to go it alone

Incolink offers support including counselling, financial counselling and their award-winning Bluehats suicide-prevention training to help you through.
