You have exclusive access to experts' medical opinions. I can understand you and it is correct that mental health is as important as physical health. I would suggest you following guidelines:

  1. Do meditation for 20 minutes daily. Sit in one place in a comfortable position and try to concentrate on your normal breathing, and do not stop or force yourself to stop your thoughts, just let it be. It will calm you.
  2. You should eat healthy home-cooked foods, and avoid junk foods.
  3. You must drink enough water.
  4. You should spend quality time with friends and family daily.
  5. You should spend time on creative hobbies like reading good books, writing journals, painting, drawing, and learning new skills or language or musical instruments.
  6. You should take enough 7 to 8 hours of sleep daily.
  7. You must avoid tobacco or alcohol or any substance abuse.

All these basic things will help you improve your mental health. I hope these things will help you.

Thank you.
