This is an article by Dan, a family correspondent and mental health professional for NF Rebel.
We worry so much that we make excuses not to see friends, we know that our neighbor has been sleeping for a few weeks, and our sister has stopped eating for many days, our grandfather was still awake at night thinking about the war, or about our friend not was able to cope after the birth of her second child.
These are common problems that can affect many of us now. But something that is not so common, speaks of them.
When we don’t talk about things, we all sing the wrong idea of how things are. Let the stigmata develop. People may start to feel lonely and ashamed. All because we are not talking about this! Since some people don’t like asking for directions when they are lost or are embarrassed to ask for help at the gym if they have trouble walking, others may be afraid or ashamed that they don’t have big enough ideas.
Where’s your head?
Your body’s health is worth considering, so why are we so serious about talking about our mental health?
Good mental health is about being able to live your life satisfactorily with all your strengths. A person in “good mental health” has a good spirit and social skills, as well as the ability to cope with life’s challenges. But just like physical injuries, they can occur in many different ways.
If you have a broken ankle, it will be as fast as a professional can see, or you will think? It bothers me, but telling someone about this would be an embarrassing way, plus, would it fix itself?
Now imagine that at the beginning of this year, randomly 1 in 4 people you know breaks their ankles. Your best friend broke his ankle, some colleagues had their feet up on the table, your nephew asked you to sign with his team, and the Rio Olympics would be postponed because one in four-quarters of the players cannot compete.
Mental health problems and their causes.
Depression, anger, pressure, or anxiety are all emotions. We all cry when a loved one dies suddenly when we ignore the promotion or after watching the Futurama event.
(Remember Steve: have you seen the amazing movie Inside Out? If you haven’t seen it, you should get off work now and check it out.
Sad feelings (or anxiety, fear, panic, anger, confusion, anxiety, etc.) happen to all of us from time to time (who doesn’t see real anger stop?). But it is only when these effects persist for a long time (more than a few weeks) that they can become part of a mental health problem.
Mental health problems can affect the way you think and how much you work in your daily routine. Here are some general signs you may want:
• You are unhappy or unwilling to participate in activities that interest you.
• gets angry easily or has problems with friends and family for no apparent reason
• Feeling sad, “depressed” or crying for no reason
• Always has trouble concentrating or remembering things
• Have a lot of anxiety and stress, often or for no apparent reason
• Having negative, annoying, or unusual thoughts.
Two of the most frequent mental health problems are:
• Anxiety disorder: common (affects approximately 18% of the US population), as well as overtreatment (without any medication), but only one-third of people with it seek help.
• Depression: Not only is it so stressful (affects about 5%), but it also heals and comes in a variety of ways. For example, many women experience postpartum depression, feeling completely depressed after giving birth, making it difficult for these new mothers to fulfill their daily care responsibilities for themselves and/or their children.
Looking after your mental health
“Take care, you must.”
Like our physical health, our mental state is not regulated. We are rebels who like to dedicate time to our education and improve health. We work on our food cleanse, looking to raise, lift, and lift, but when was the last time you went out of your way to take care of your mental health?
Well, you can inadvertently look at your mind. While everyone should seek help for their own specific situation, there are many things we can all do to take care of our health and well-being (Spoiler: Diet and exercise to rescue once again).
Research shows that dealing with stress through exercise, exercise, meditation, or yoga works better for improving your mental health, may be more effective than medications for them.
Getting Help and helping others
Getting support is crucial when it comes to recovering from mental health problems.
Every day, I see the positive effect this has on many people, and sadly I also see the devastating effect it can have on individuals and their families when they don’t need help.
We all know (or have been) someone with mental health problems at some point in our lives. If someone you know tells you it’s not good:
Not to do:
• Tell them to be happy or to work too hard.
• Speed of judgment.
• Encourage them to take drugs at night or drink alcohol. Wearing things can help them deal with their stress temporarily, but it will only make things worse in the near future.
• Ignore their problems – you may be the only one who can talk to them right now.
• Hear! The useful Eninga, even without doing anything, can be what they want.
• Do activities that promote mental health, such as exercising, eating right, getting enough sleep, and doing things that interest you.
• Encourage them and assure them that you will be with them and ask what they want from you.
• Give them information about where to get professional help.
For anyone who thinks their problem isn’t big enough to go away, it won’t be easy to talk to someone, be it a friend, family member, GP, or mental health professional. I can’t stress that! Minor problems can be serious in the short term in some cases.
When it comes to mental health, there’s no need for this stupid shame anymore – it continues to hurt the people we know and love. I want to live in a world where my children are still comfortable talking about their mental health as if they were broken ankles.
But if anyone can make it happen, I’m sure it’s us! This is Rebellion – For years, we’ve debated how to balance health and wellness. We are turning to a real solution that is active and dedicated throughout our lives.
Help me dispel other amazing wisdom. I encourage you to share your knowledge of mental health problems and how to cope with them. By becoming more aware and supportive of those around you, you can create so much more than you ever thought possible.
