Digna Love is a holistic healer and an entrepreneur. She knows that health is more than just our physical outlook. It is mainly about how our physical, social and spiritual wellness is connected. People who are mentally healthy are in control of their emotions and their character. They can handle life’s challenges, build healthy relationships, and recover from setbacks. However, just as it requires time and effort to maintain our physical health, so it is with mental and emotional health. Improving your mental health can be a rewarding experience; it will help in boosting your mood, building resilience, and improving your overall quality of life.
People who are mentally healthy usually have a zest for living and the ability to laugh and have fun. They have the ability to deal with stress effectively and they have a sense of meaning and purpose, in both their activities and their relationships. Also, they have self-confidence and high self-esteem.
In order to improve your mental and emotional health, it is important to take care of your body. Get enough sleep and learn about good nutrition and practice it. Also, exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression.
Addictions and bad habits affect mental and emotional health. Therefore, for optimal mental and emotional health, you need to recognize your addiction and seek necessary support, or guidance to help you overcome them. These can include therapy, medical interventions and harm reduction programs.
Addiction comes in many forms. People can be addicted to drugs, alcohol, the internet, video games, food, sex, gambling etc. Substance abuse and other addictions can have serious negative effects on life, relationship and the health of an individual.
Furthermore, people feeling depressed often lack energy and self-confidence. They find it difficult to concentrate on anything or make decisions. Oftentimes, they may feel extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances and a general loss of interest. Meditation is a very powerful natural prescription for people who suffer from anxiety and/or depression. People who meditate are less stressed, they sleep better, and they have a more positive outlook on life. Also, sunlight will help to lift your mood, so try to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of sun per day. This can be done while you are exercising, gardening, or socializing.
