3 Daily Rituals for Better Mental Health

OSHCstudents-Establishing daily rituals can significantly contribute to better mental health. Here are three rituals you can incorporate into your daily routine.

1. Morning Ritual

Cultivating a morning routine has consistently been a cornerstone of my personal practice. While my dedication to it may vary at times (blame it on my humanity), mornings remain a sacred period exclusively dedicated to nurturing both heart and mind. Consider the following steps:
– Arrange your space to suit your chosen practice.
– Remove distractions from your surroundings.
– Light a candle to create a conducive atmosphere.
– Optionally, play music to enhance the overall environment.
I always set up my environment before delving into any practice, be it meditation, journaling, or other spiritual endeavors. Each of these acts as a distinct and essential ritual, shaping the tone of my day. Acknowledging the challenges of remote work, optimize the space available to you and exclude any distractions during this dedicated time.

2. Breathwork

Another favorite of mine and a straightforward yet impactful exercise I often recommend to clients is breathwork. This practice aids in calming the nervous system and alleviating stress. Beyond its utility in preparing for challenging conversations or significant presentations, studies indicate its effectiveness in reducing symptoms associated with insomnia, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and ADD.
Various breathing techniques exist, but a simple one involves inhaling for four counts from the belly, holding for two, and exhaling for four through the mouth. Repeat this for 3-5 cycles or longer until a sense of calm washes over you.

3. Daily Planning

Whether through Google Calendar, Outlook, or another planning tool, carve out time for activities beyond work commitments. Stick to this plan! Organizing and prioritizing personal time alongside professional responsibilities fosters organization and focus, alleviating the anxiety stemming from a seemingly overwhelming to-do list.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
