If you or someone you know and love suffers from mental illness and stress, please stop and take a few minutes to read this!
Before we move on, let us clarify one thing. Mental illness isn’t only limited to the mind; it can also include social well-being, which can profoundly impact our thoughts, behavior, and professional and social life. This needs to be prioritized at all costs, no matter if you are a young age child, teenager, or adult.
Mental illness and overwhelming stress can often lead to negative thoughts, which attract negativity. You are what you think. These feelings and thoughts can involve the following :
● Feeling sad or down.
● Confused thinking or reduced ability to concentrate.
● Excessive fears or worries or extreme feelings of guilt.
● Extreme mood changes of highs and lows.
● Withdrawal from friends and activities.
● Significant tiredness, low energy, or problems sleeping.
The first and most important thing about mental illness and feeling stress is admission. Secondly, seek help and don’t ignore what you are feeling. Positive mental health makes us a better version of ourselves. These are ways to help improve your mental health in challenging times:
● Do not always blame yourself.
● Seek help from a close friend you can trust and/or a professional.
● Feel confident when you come across new situations or stresses.
● Feel optimistic.
● Set and achieve your goals.
● Eating healthy.
● Get at least 6-8 hours sleep.
● Exercise daily.
● Limit your consumption of alcohol.
● Think positive about yourself and others.
You are important and special; never allow anyone to make you feel you aren’t. So, shine brightly and live a long, healthy, and happy life.
This may sound like a cliche’, but if you feel no one cares about you it isn’t true and don’t believe that lie. We at Team G-Square do care about you!
