Clear Out the Clutter
As the warmer weather of spring starts to come to play, licensed clinical social worker Lauren Moser Vilar, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, says that it's a good time to clear your space of things that are no longer serving you. "Gain emotional freedom from items that could be mentally weighing you down," she tells TotalBeauty.

Create a Daily Ritual
Moser Vilar says having a daily ritual is key to achieving peace of mind, since it allows you to allot ten minutes a day for yourself. "Meditate, read a book, take a bath, or drink some tea," she recommends.

Keep a Journal
This is another easy way to boost your mental health according to Moser Villar: She suggests that writing daily in a journal helps clarify your thoughts and feelings, reduces stress and helps sort through problems.
