Prioritize getting 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep each night: to support emotional regulation and overall well-being. Establish a consistent sleep schedule and create a relaxing bedtime routine to help improve the quality of your sleep and leave you feeling refreshed each morning.
Learn and Explore: Keep your mind active by learning new skills or exploring different interests. Whether it’s trying out a new recipe or mastering a new game, engaging in lifelong learning can foster personal growth and stimulate your intellect.

Routines and Structure: Establishing routines and structure in your daily life can provide a sense of stability and normalcy. From maintaining regular sleep patterns to sticking to healthy eating habits and exercise routines, structure can help you feel more grounded and in control.

Practice Mindfulness: Take time to pause and be present in the moment. Incorporating mindfulness practices into your daily routine, such as deep breathing exercises or quick meditations, can help reduce stress and promote a greater sense of calm and clarity.  Take a look at the Mental Health page at
