Exam time will pass in the blink of an eye and you will need a fun activity to destress. Whether it is treating yourself to a Netflix binge, or going on a road trip with friends, pleasure is key for your mental health.

If you are stuck for ideas, try one of the activities below:

  • Buy a fun treat when grocery shopping.
  • Buy some flowers that delight you.
  • Give yourself a long bubble bath.
  • Give yourself a manicure.
  • Throw away old, stretched-out underwear and socks. Replace them with fresh new versions.
  • Watch a couple episodes of your favourite sitcoms.
  • Watch or listen to your favourite comedy podcasts.
  • Watch your favourite classic films.
  • Wear clothes that makes you feel great.
  • Look at the stars.
  • Do some gardening. Dig your hands into the dirt and enjoy the feeling.

Mental health should not only be a priority during Mental Health Month. Make sure to fine-tune your wellbeing habits every day.
