Mental Health Awareness

Your mental health controls how you think, feel, and behave on a daily basis. It can also affect your ability to cope with stress, build relationships, and recover from any setbacks life tends to throw your way. It’s never too late to change your lifestyle, there are plenty of ways to take control of your mental health.

Start today!

What is Mental Health?

Mental health refers to your overall psychological well-being. When you’re mentally or emotionally healthy, you are free of depression, and anxiety.

Over a lifetime, most of us will go through life altering events that can and will have an impact on our mental health. Yet, despite how prevalent mental health problems are, we tend to brush it under the rug instead of facing the real problem.

The good news is: you don’t have to feel bad, we’re human, we all go through hardships in life!

Take a look below and explore the many ways to improve your mental health!

Make Sure to Interact

Nowadays with social media, it’s easy to get lost in that world. We tend to stray away from the personal contact we’ve always known and hide behind our electronic devices. As humans, we are social creatures by nature with emotional needs for relationships and connections with others.

Step out of your comfort zone, and interact with others. You’d be surprised how refreshing an organic conversation can be.

Staying Active is Good for the Brain

The mind and the body are essentially linked. The moment you improve your physical health, you’ll automatically feel mental and emotional well-being. Physical activity also releases endorphins: feel-good chemicals that lift your mood and provide added energy.

What If Exercising isn’t My Thing?

Well, you’re not alone. Lifting weights at the gym or running a mile a day isn’t for everyone. But you don’t have to be in the gym everyday to reap the benefits of being active

If you have the time, go on walks around the neighborhood, ride your bike, or use the stairs instead of the elevator. Getting into a routine will make a world of a difference.

Ways to destress at home:

-REME massage: Download the REME app, choose a service, we’ll do the rest

-Yoga: Decreases symptoms of depression by increasing serotonin levels

-Meditation: Increases memory, attention, and self-awareness

Even the slightest amount of physical activity can make a huge difference to your mental and emotional health.

Eat Good, Feel Good

Having an unhealthy diet can take a toll on your brain and mood. Anything we eat can have a severe impact and disrupt your sleep, energy, and weaken your immune system.

Switching up your diet and eating cleaner can have amazing benefits. You’ll notice an increase in energy, improved sleep, and a boost in your mood.

Sleep Matters More Than You Think

We get it, life can get busy, and sleep can seem like an afterthought. But when it comes to your mental health, getting enough sleep is critical, DO NOT ignore that.

Even skipping a few hours here and there might not seem like much but it can take a toll on your mood, energy, and most importantly, mental sharpness. Over the long-term, chronic sleep loss can impair your health.
