You can influence and improve your mental well-being. Often, things and habits that support mental well-being are the same as those that support physical well-being. Habits related especially to mental well-being can also be learned.

Important skills for maintaining your mental well-being include identifying and expressing your feelings, managing difficult feelings, and taking care of yourself. Anyone can learn these skills. In addition to these skills, mental well-being is supported by the same things as physical well-being: sufficient and high-quality sleep, regular daily rhythm, diverse nutrition, relationships, and physical activity.

Maintaining mental well-being also involves the skill of seeking help when you need it. No one needs to deal with bad feelings on their own.
