What Is Mental Health?
Mental health is our emotional, social, and psychological well-being. Mental health influences the way we feel in our everyday life. Our mental health state influences how we handle stress, make choices, and interact with other people. Mental health is an important aspect throughout our lifetime.
Mental Health Throughout Our Life
When we are younger it is easier for us to cope with stress and other hardships. As we age this becomes harder and the feelings of loneliness and despair might occur. The feeling of not seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, sometimes even not seeing a reason to live. That is why it is very important to take care of our mental health throughout our life.
Taking Care Of Our Mental Health
I think everyone needs to find something that makes them feel better. For me it is doing crafts, scrapbook, writing letters, reading books. Common things that work for most people are exercising, eating balanced meals, drinking enough water, meditating, talking to your friends, family or a therapist about your feelings. If we feel good physically we usually feel better mentally as well, that is why eating healthy and exercising is a big part of taking care of our mind and body.
Asking For Help
Sometimes it is hard for us to admit to ourselves that we need help. Mental health can be tricky and admitting that there is something that we need help with might feel like a defeat, like we have failed. But that is not the truth. Asking for help is an amazing and healthy decision that you are making for yourself. So that you can get better. Finding a good therapist might be the first step if you don’t feel like sharing your feelings with friends and family but they are the greatest support system of all.
