New year, new you! Let's get this decade going! 2020 is going to be lit!!

Also... isn't it crazy that we're halfway through February?? At this point in the year, you might be starting to feel a little run down... and time might have taken a toll on some of your New Year's resolutions (yes, even the easy ones). That said, you still need to take care of your mental health and take a step back.

After all, you don't want to get burnt out again, do you? Luckily, there are a few small things you can put into practice to take better care of yourself and those around; whether that means finally learning how to balance your checkbook or remembering to get up and stretch at your desk job.

Yes, we know, everyone says this, but there's a reason why. Exercise is proven to help your mental health, due to the the release of endorphins. It can also aid sleep and even digestion.

You don't have to become gym-obsessed, but going for a hike every now and then, short daily walks or even a little desk yoga is a good place to start.

Laugh more
It may sound trite, but laughter really is the best medicine. Read a funny book, read an article with hilarious memes, go see some stand-up comedy, or listen to a humorous podcast. The world's your oyster!

Find a hobby
It could be something that you can do on your own, it could be something you do in a group. It could be as a means to have some time for yourself away from your overwhelming family life, or your high stress job. Find something that interests you completely and do a class, or watch videos online to help you.

Be social
Now, this is especially tough if you're socially anxious, but spending time with people you love is good for you. Even if it's just one or two people every now and then, put yourself out there a little and spend time with your loved ones, even just for an hour or two — it could make all the difference.
