How to improve mental health in a natural way

Most people suffer from mental health issues at some point in their lives. Therefore it is helpful to know that everyone can improve their mental health themselves. It is important that you don’t procrastinate and start working on it right away. There are a lot of natural ways to improve your mental health.

Value yourself. Be proud of what you have accomplished and think positive. Having a positive image of yourself has a very powerful effect on how you feel.

Focus on one thing. Try not to multitask too much and focus on what is really important. When your mind starts to wander, try to get back to your main task.

Exercise. When you exercise, your body creates endorphin; a stress-reducing and mood-boosting hormone. That is why exercising is such a powerful tool to improve mental health. Start adding exercises in your daily routine. For instance, try to walk more and always take the stairs.

Good meals. Try to eat foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, notably fatty fish.

Enough sleep. Sleep deprivation is conducive to a bad mood, and is terrible for your mental health. It is recommended to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep per day.

Learning Wim’s method is like studying from one of nature’s best students. My life long fear of cold is history. I now fully enjoy cold immersions, but the benefits are not limited to cold. I am now a better person and a happier being. I smile when facing life challenges.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.
