We seem to live in a society that values quick fixes and smart pills. There’s pretty much a “hack” for everything but our health and well-being.  Let’s face it, most folks that suffer from anger or depression related metal and physical anguish are choosing, either consciously or subconsciously, to avoid one single element that can surpass the efficacy of any pill out there – physical activity.

Yes you are busy, yes you are tired, and yes you are sick so what is the next step?  Do you want to continue doing the same things over and over and expect a different result or do you want to try something that actually works?  We’ve compiled a list of five physical activities that you can undertake starting today to feel incredible starting today.


Ancient tradition of Tibetan medicine has a saying – “When the diet is right then there is no need for medicine, and when the diet is bad then there is definitely no need for medicine.” You see, what they are saying is that it does not matter what you try to do in your life to feel better if your body is not getting the right nutrients then it is like trying to put sugar-water into a Ferrari and expecting to get to your destination.

Address your diet right away for quickest results. Anger Mentor has done some good research and suggests one single element that can boost your mood right away is the Omega 3s from fish oil.  It’s been defined as the most important element for your mental health that can be easily found on the market. Consult with a good dietician and increase your intake of Vitamin B to curb the stress. In general, consume lots of veggies, legumes and low-glycemic fruits.

Avoid at all costs: coffee, refined sugar products, nutrition deficient meals, alcohol and smoking. All these things stimulate your nervous system and shorten your so fuse.  If you really want to experiment then avoid raw onion and garlic too. According to ancient science of Ayurveda, these plants induce aggression and dullness.

Light Weightlifting

The next lowest hanging fruit is weightlifting.  The key term is “light”. Light exercise helps you oxygenate your brain and all the cells in entire body. In addition, with exercise your brain produces and releases more dopamine which is been termed the “happy hormone.”  This is a much more superior alternative to any other artificial mood boosting pill.

Cardio out in Nature

Cardio has very similar effects to weight-lifting because of the exercise involved but you also connect with something we’re so grossly disconnected from – mother nature. By merely observing natural harmony and sheer power of nature your mind synchronizes with it and restores its inner balance. Make time for this and prioritize walks in the nature.  Don’t overdo it, just a few minutes a day or every other day will do. Heck, if you’re bored slap on some headphones and rock out on some trail, it’ll be awesome!


Everyone knows about yoga these days but very few have any clue what it actually does. Yoga involves quite a few elements but the main ones are: breathing, stretching, strength, and meditation. No, no, its not exotic at all, in fact its pure science.  Do more research online, you really need to know more about yoga for your own sake. Find a local center with a group of people your age and give it a try. You’ll get the benefits after the first session.  You’ll feel more relaxed and connected.

Chi-gong (Qigong)

Also known as Thai Chi, Chigong is ancient Chinese art of well-being.  Similar to Yoga, exercises involve very light stretching and coordination of breath. Unlike Yoga however, this is particular popular with the older folks as all the exercises are performed standing in a slow, coordinated manner. Chigong is known to purify the mind and body of toxins and dramatically increasing one’s life energy if done regularly. We’ve done it and practice it.  You can do it at home in front of a TV and an open window.

Mental health should not be a chore, it is simply a matter of one’s attitude and discipline. If your excuse is the lack of time then simply drop it right away. People who “never have time” for themselves are the ones who truly run of time and die early.  It is really quite ignorant not to take care of oneself. After all, it is only our health that allows to earn more money and enjoy more things in life.

We invite you to be wise and invest time in your emotional well-being. Once you regain your balance and mental health you’ll be able to move mountains and inspire countless other people. Got for it today!
