Cultivate the mind and support Geðhjálp

This winter, Geðhjálp, the Icelandic Mental Health Alliance, offers daily doses of small, straightforward tips intended to improve mental health. We call those tips “vitamin G”.

  • Eat healthy food in the company of others

    Eating is one of the basic needs of life. The way we feel is closely linked to our diet. Eat three main meals a day and two to three snacks between meals. If you don’t eat often enough during the day, you are more likely to overeat at night. It is also important to enjoy the food and give yourself time to eat it. Icelanders often eat too fast. Meals have traditionally been a social activity where people experience their humanity. Sharing a meal with others can bring you happiness. Focus on the food and the company. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the relaxation that follows.
