Good Mental Health – Rituals

Daily  Rituals

 Rituals which I have worked hard to incorporate into my daily life.

Solitude – A daily dose of silence. A period of peace (it might be just ten minutes) where I spend time alone wrapped in that beautiful blanket of silence. A rest break for the over-heated engine.

Exercise – Take time every single day to nourish the temple of your body with vigorous exercise.

Nourishment – Fill your plate with fresh vegetables, fruits and grains and you might live forever.

Knowledge – I try to read for at least 20 minutes every day. And I try to read books of wisdom. Books which are helpful and useful.

Reflection Time – It’s something I do in the evenings. I take myself off to a quiet corner of the house and reflect on my day. Usually it’s just for ten minutes.

Prayer Time – Rise every morning at six o’clock and make my way down to the study for my spiritual time with my Father in Heaven.

Nature – Try to spend a while each day communicating with nature.

in tune with nature







Control the mind and you will control the body. Calm the mind. That’s easier said than done, but it can be done. Be as organised as you possibly can. Being disorganized is a major cause of stress and strain. Certain daily rituals  can be a source for peace of mind. Enjoy what you want to do and try and enjoy what you have to do. Use slide therapy – when a negative thought enters your mind, immediately exchange that slide (thought) for a lovely, peaceful one. Repetition is the mother of skill. The more you use the slide therapy method , the more skillful you will become at it.
Work on your mental health guys. It’s not just physical exercise but also mental exercise which is important to our lives.

  1. This should become my mantra! I especially love your last point of spending time communing with nature – it’s so easy to get swept up in the ‘big city life’ and lose touch with our roots. I believe this is a big reason for mental health issues and stress.

    Which is your favourite throughout the day?
