It is important to have a fit body, but it is equally as important to have a mind that is healthy. And if you thought improving your mental condition will require so much, you would be mistaken. It only takes a few tweaks in your lifestyle to feel the change within. Start with adding more vegetables and fruits in your diet. Fruits and veggies are rich in nutrition. Nutrition, in turn, is good for the body, obviously, but it is even better for those with mental disorders. Fats containing Omega-3 are good to fight off depression but other fats should be avoided at all cost.

Next, you need to include exercising in your day to day living. But you don’t need to work your guts out. Just light running every day is enough to improve your overall mental health condition. The next most obvious step to take is to try to stay happy and avoid stress. This applies to anyone with mental conditions or not. Try meditation whenever possible. Also, if you want to, you can try yoga. If you can find any, you can get into a yoga group. Having people motivating you will improve your consistency in doing the activity. Plus, laugh out loud. Stress will be relieved if you are able to laugh every day. Playing with children is also proven an effective way to get you relaxed and forget about stress.
The last tip you should try is the easiest yet the most overlooked: Sleep. If you find it hard to sleep at night, getting enough exercise sessions can help making your body tired and tired body leads to comfortable sleep. Lack of sleep leads to depression and exhaustion; those with mental disorders such as schizophrenia will see their symptoms worsen the less sleep they get.
