Did you know that your mental health and physical health are interlinked? If you have a disability or long-term physical condition, it’s easy to let your struggles affect your well-being. But, even small changes can make a big difference in how you feel. From improving your mood to brightening your outlook on life, your well-being should not be ignored.
Here are some top tips for improving your wellbeing when living with a mobility condition.
When you aren’t able to get out and about as much you may become reliant on people visiting you. But, you need to reach out too. Don’t be afraid to make plans with your friends and stay connected via text, social media and video calls. Whether you need someone to talk to or you just want to have some fun, being social will improve your self-esteem and mood.
Over the years it’s all too common that people stop doing the things they love. When you’re living with a mobility-related condition, don’t focus on what you can’t do, instead, focus on what you can do. Take up a hobby that you once loved and make yourself feel good.
If you aren’t fuelling your body with the right foods this can have a negative impact on your well-being. Eating sugary and processed foods all of the time can make you feel sluggish and when you don’t have enough energy this will make you feel tired and low. A good diet will ensure that your body is as strong and healthy as possible.
