Is Mental health as important as your Physical Health?


We live in an era, where innocent people are shamed, bullied and trash talked for seeking help from professionals for wanting to have better mental health. Somewhere along the line, we, as a society, forget that individuals who need mental health support, but are bullied and neglected or ignored, are the ones causing major damages to the very same society.

Being fit and healthy physically is not just the only criteria to call a person healthy. The mental aspect of a human plays a crucial role in moulding their lives and that of the ones around them. Just like how excess water kills a cactus, excessive stress, anger, sadness and pressure results in fatal scenarios for the victim.

It is high time that we recognise the importance and need of a healthy mental state of a human. Because we reap what we sow, and sowing unhealthy mental practices and unattended mental illness into our society is simply going to result in a society that doesn’t accept kindness or empathy and grows vulnerable without a social bond.

Here are some tips to ensure that your mental health and peace are unharmed by the hardships of life. Share and spread mental health awareness into your circle and help become a part of a healthier and safer society!

Start to appreciate and thank more

Appreciating and being thankful for what we have at hand is one of the first steps towards attaining mental peace. By thanking and appreciating even the tiniest acts in your household, workplace or even your local community/society, you not only make someone’s day better, but also start realising how complex our lives are and how interdependent we are with one another. The habit of being thankful and appreciating the efforts is a constant reminder that we’re all equals, effectively reducing a major part of your everyday fights/ arguments.

When overstimulated, take a step back

Sure, not all of us have a smooth sail throughout our day. We have our ups and downs and at times, even hit rock bottom. Even though this rock bottom keeps redefining its depth every time an issue pops up in your life, it is important to remember that there is a rainbow around every corner, and no matter how bad your day is, it will end soon, and you will get your peaceful me-time to de-stress and relax. Keeping this in mind, remember to take a step back whenever you’re feeling overstimulated by strong feelings and emotions like anger or sadness. If you feel like your anger is shooting through the roof, it is time for you to take a deep breath and reassess the situation before you say or do anything you might regret in the future. If you find it hard to relax yourself or take a step back when you’re angry, try drinking a glass of water. Since humans can either swallow or breathe at a time, you will be forced to take a decent interval between your breathing patterns, and ultimately relax a little before you proceed further with your argument.

Keep reaffirming positive phrases

A boat doesn’t sink unless there’s water inside it. Remember this the next time when you’re in self-doubt. You are what you feed your thoughts. Your thoughts are extremely capable and can shape your present and future. So try and avoid self-hatred phrases and remember to reaffirm positivity. Even if the whole world keeps looking down on you, you still have yourself to climb up the ladder. Right from birth till death, you are the only person who is going to be with you, and actually know what you’re going through. Others can empathise and sympathise all they can wany, but no one can actually and truly know what you’re going through, so don’t be so hard on yourself and seek out help if you need it. Nobody can define the threshold and tolerance limits for your mental health. If you feel like you need external support to make your mental health better, get that help immediately.
