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”.

  • Exercise daily

    Times have changed. A sedentary lifestyle is increasingly common while the speed and stress of modern existence has increased. That is why exercise has never been more important. By exercising regularly, you can reduce stress and increase your quality of life. Allow the seasons to influence your choice. Don’t overreach yourself and don’t hesitate to ask for guidance or assistance. Exercise with others as often as you can. Use music if you find it encouraging or relaxing. Find the time that suits you best and remember the importance of breathing during exercise. Respect your body. Don’t get caught up in altering it according to external criteria but rather focus on what’s within. Research has shown that exercise has a positive effect on mental health.
