The True Value of Mental Health For Tradies
Mental health is one of the things that you never take for granted as a tradie. Aside from the physical stress brought upon by continuous projects, it is important to keep an eye on how we take care of the mind. In this podcast, we collaborate on how tradies and contractors can strengthen their mental health while dealing with the daily challenges of their trade business.
How Can Tradies Take Better Care Of Their Mental Health?
To accompany this amazing podcast is a brief list of practical things you can do for your mental health. Check it out:
1. Get enough sleep
It’s no surprise that getting sufficient amount of sleep is one of the most effective ways of preserving your mental health. Tons of research concludes that lack of sleep has a direct correlation with depression (especially the not-so-young bunch!). Aside from that, having enough sleep also gives you the sufficient energy to take on the challenges of each day!
2. Find an outlet for stress
Stress can eat up all the happy hormones out of you. This is why an outlet for stress is very crucial to your mental health. And by ‘outlet for stress’, we don’t mean partying and drinking the night away! Boxing, travelling, hiking, skiing, and similar physical intensive activities are the perfect way to get your mind away from work-related tension.
3. Surround yourself with the right people
The word ‘right’ is the key-term in here. This is because everyone has different kinds of personality. You may find yourself easily getting along with certain people at work. That’s ok! It is very important to surround yourself with people that you truly understand and accept. Looking for a social group for tradies?
