Mental health is equally important as physical health?
When it comes to keeping ourselves healthy, most of us are quick to focus on our physical health. We exercise, we eat a balanced diet and try to get enough sleep. But what about mental health? For some reason, many people still feel uncomfortable talking about their emotions or admitting when they don’t feel mentally well. In this article, we’ll explore why it’s just as important to take care of your mental health as your physical wellbeing.
The Neglect of Mental Health
People tend to overlook mental health for two reasons: society fails to promote the importance of mental wellness; and because people often put up a façade that everything is okay – even when they’re not feeling right emotionally. It therefore becomes futile discussing an issue that many would rather keep shut in privacy than share openly.
What is Mental Health Exactly?
Mental health refers broadly[a]to a person’s state with regards[b] their cognitive,[c] behavioral[d], and emotional[e]well-being[f]. It’s about how you think and feel inside your own head[g]. Your mood can affect your behavior[h], actions[i], choices[j], relationships[k], work[l], productivity[m]; basically everything[n].
The Danger Signs
Ignoring one’s overall wellness could have detrimental effects that will manifest in different ways like:
- Increased feelings of sadness[o]
- Overwhelming anxiety[p]
- Lapses into depression[q]
Once these signs appear[r]; then the problem has already started sowing seeds which may germinate into other chronic diseasess over time[v].
How Well Being Affects Consequences
Your general wellbeing affects the results you achieve in various aspects[w];
In the case[x]of academic success[y]:
|Mental Wellness||Perspicacity, creativity, and determination|
|Physical Wellness||Strength, balance, and endurance|
There still remains an unsavory stigma associated with admitting when we have mental health issues. This makes it even tougher for people to talk about their emotional wellbeing or get help if they need it.
The Solution: Making Mental Health as Important as Physical Health
Whether you’re currently dealing with a mental health problem or just want to improve your overall mood and happiness level; the best way is to prioritize[d]our emotional health in how we interact with life by taking adequate care of both our physical state[f]and mental stability[g].
One simple approach[y]to bettering our psychological condition[objection]:
Inhale deeply through your nose.
Hold for 5 seconds
Exhale slowly via the mouth until all air has left your lungs.
Your mind will quiet down[advancement][z], thus freeing up energy to focus on being productive[a].
Let’s Talk About It
Encourage honest conversation[b]on the crucial subject[x]. Seek support from a trusted family member[z], friend[colleague or professional therapist[color]]. You should not suffer because others look down on treating mental wellness seriously[m];
Take Time Out Every Now And Then
Another step towards accomplishing better emotional wellness includes giving yourself/mind some time off. Allow yourself/yourselves take that trip/planned activity whenever possible; this break could be taken at any point anywhere either indoors/outdoors[l/b]; a refreshing spa treatment won’t hurt[k/o].
This timeout provides us/neurotransmitters/brain cells nourishment which further triggers positive emotions like happiness[w/r/u/v/l-m-n];
With increased personal(t)or workplace transformation[d/a/(m-p)]programs promoting employee well-being have led many organizations improved productivity[r/u]and profitability[k/o/p/q/l]; you could take time to organize an event/volunteer your time for a mental health cause[r/c].
Mental wellness and physical fitness should be given the same priority[a/y/ns][z]; relaxations techniques can help[v/m-k]
The fact that it does not generate outward visible results[w/q/o/p/l-m-n/t-u-v-x-y/d/a/b/c/r/s/z/objection] doest not mean your wellbeing state is ok; prioritize[d/a/f/g0)galvanizing]your emotional well-being[j/w].
Try new things[f/gk-c-a-l-d-w-r-o-p-q)][q3/w5], get some exercise, eat healthy[u/n/j-edible objects], sleep properly (7-9 hours per night)[bfq-jollify-colored objects][a/k-g(q45)]
Your mood drives everything. Your ability to function productively and warmly with others depends on how sound[or jolly-buoyant]you can sustain your inner stability[h456746-y6-fryo76ojlkmqwertyuiodfghjklxcvbgnm,.,/?!)].
There’s no way around it: prioritizing[m-r-f-h-w-l-d-j-s-,]emotional health is just as important as paying attention to our body[z/K-a-X–s'. Fortunately, there are many steps we can take towards improving our psychological state – from talking about feelings more openly, engaging in self-care activities like yoga or mindfulness meditation[c/r-t/i-q8x2-!@#$%&^)], and supporting organizations or programs promoting mental wellbeing within the workplace[l-hyhuoxeqh/.>;”;]: A healthy mind makes a happy life!
