CNV Blog Title Images 2

One of the most important things for leaders to keep in mind is to improve mental health. It’s often overlooked, but mental health is crucial for maintaining a healthy and successful life. Leaders need to be especially mindful of their mental health, as they often face high levels of stress and pressure.

Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. Leaders need to be able to stay calm under pressure and make clear-headed decisions. If you’re not taking care of your mental health, you won’t be able to do your job as well as you could.

Here are the 9 Tips to Improve Mental Health for leaders 👇

#1) Time chunk

When it comes to Time chunking, there are a few key things to keep in mind. First, Time chunking is a great way to boost your productivity. By breaking down your tasks into smaller chunks of time, you can get more done in less time. Second, Time chunking is also a great way to improve your focus. By focusing on one task at a time, you can eliminate distractions and get more done. Finally, Time chunking is also a great way to reduce stress. By breaking down your tasks into manageable chunks of time, you can avoid feeling overwhelmed by your workload. So if you’re looking for a way to boost your productivity and reduce your stress levels, Time chunking is definitely worth considering!


#2) Communicate with your family about your day

What are your working hours? When do you need quiet time? What should the kids do if you have a call? Whatever you have on your plate, openly communicate with your family and be prepared to make adjustments that work for everyone.


#3) Meditate in the morning to get in a good headspace

Admittedly, I’m still not very good at meditating (I can’t seem to turn my brain off!), but it still helps me make the mental transition from play (with a fun 2-year-old) to work. I only spend 10 minutes and I use the Calm app.


#4) Plan out your goals for the day the night before

I like to start by making 2 lists. 1 list includes everything that HAS to get done tomorrow and the other is what I would like to accomplish. Then I move to my calendar. I estimate the time each project from the first list will take and block off time on my calendar. If there’s any time left, I move to list 2. Getting my list out of my head and down on paper helps with decision fatigue.


#5) Invest in some GOOD coffee (or chocolate, protein shake, etc – whatever your poison is)

I don’t know about you, but I need some caffeine in my life. I miss my morning trips to Starbucks but I’m also saving some cash (win-win?). Sometimes I need coffee to get me going and other times, I need to remember to stop and take a break and a good cup of afternoon-coffee helps me do that.


#6) Don’t skimp on sleep—it matters more than you think

The importance of sleep is often underestimated. We all know that we need to sleep, but we don’t always realize how important it is for our overall health and well-being.

Sleep is essential for our bodies to function properly. It helps to restore our energy levels, repair damaged cells, and clear out toxins from our system. Getting enough sleep is also crucial for our mental health, helping to improve our mood, concentration, and memory.


#7) Keep healthy snacks like nuts, fruits, veggies, and cheese in the house

I don’t know about you but when I am home, I either graze all day or forget to eat anything. Having healthy snacks that are easy to eat and go, keeps me energized.


#8) You have an incredible opportunity to get outside more or exercise in the middle of the day!

Now it’s not something you HAVE to do after work but something you GET to do in the middle of the day and it feels like a little cheat. It’s a great lunch break for me.


#9) Send gifs and memes to your team

I’m serious! It’s fun. You still get to laugh together and you feel more connected and I think connectivity is what you miss most when you work virtually.

Finally

Don’t forget that mental health is important for leaders. If you’re not taking care of your mental health, you won’t be able to do your job as well as you could. Seek help if you’re struggling, and take steps to prevent mental illness by taking care of your mental health.
