5 Tips To Take Care Of Your Mental Health After Being Laid Off
Take Care Of Your Body
If you've recently been laid off, you may need to cry it out over Netflix and ice cream, but don't allow that to become a habit. If you're experiencing stress, one of the best things you can do is to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet since when you eat well, you feel better.
Don’t Internalize Everything
Blaming yourself or dwelling on the negative aspects of being laid off can take a serious toll on your mental health. Instead of drawing hurtful conclusions, remember that only you can define yourself, and find ways to remain rooted in your own power and self-esteem.
Practice Mindful Habits
Mindfulness emphasizes getting to know your inner voice and eliminating emotional and mental processes and thoughts that can inhibit your well-being. Try practicing mindful and affirming habits like deep breathing, yoga, and journaling to keep you grounded.
