MENTAL HEALTH AND HOW TO DEAL WITH IT

Mental Health is a level of psychological well-being and state of mind of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment.

Sharing a problem is often the first step to recovery. If your mental or emotional state quickly gets worse or you’re worried about someone you know – help is available.

It’s time to give up:

  • Negative thinking
  • Worrying about the past
  • Comparing yourself to others
  • Waiting to start
  • Saying yes to everything
  • Ignoring your health

Cognitive behaviour therapy methods to maintain positive mental health include

• Taking charge of your physical actions – Get moving, Exercise, Take a walk, Go for a jog. Doing this may help get rid of a terrible mood and should help you feel better.

• Taking control of your mental state – Don’t over-analyse scenarios, dwell in the past or fret about the future. Make a conscious effort to focus on positives.

• Altering the context of your environment – Shift your perspective and how you see things. Positive thinking could put you in a good mood. Be optimistic.
