    The most important tip is to stop reading this list and instead go practice one of these, stop procrastinating. It's now or never, go take a nap or go drink some water. Try meditating or even try colouring on a piece of paper. Try to work towards any goals you have. Your mental health will only improve if you put in the effort it requires to improve.
