Do we understand the importance of mental health?
We are all focused on a variety of things as we move about and progress in our daily life. We are typically concerned primarily with our financial health, our schedules, plans, and life revolves around it. This is not necessarily a bad thing, our financial health is very important, our work is a major part of our lives and we should be rewarded well for our high-quality work.
Yet, some of may be workaholics, we may be too concerned with our financial health and the cares of tomorrow while disregarding today and being in the present moment. Leading to a variety of problems in our physical health and our mental health as well.
If we only pay attention our financial health and neglect our mental health, we may not be aware of the fact that we need therapy and assistance in clearing up our minds to be able to sustain and make great decisions.
Focus on Health
Our focus one just one aspect of our life may create “debt” in other aspects of our life which can be quite detrimental.
Think about it. Working 70-80 hour weeks can possibly increase productivity but it can certainly take away from physical and mental health. A lack of a holistic approach can definitely be counterintuitive and work against our goals.
If our head isn’t on straight, then we will fall behind and not be able to cope with the day to day challenges that we may face. An overworked mind and body can carry a lot of issues that crop up over time.
We may not be aware of these issues initially and might only feel and know about small signs of issues that crop up such as tiredness, a foggy mind, and less enthusiasm to go about the daily work life.
Make sure to address problems head-on, know what you are capable of doing and balance it with your health needs, remember that your health truly is your wealth. Without your health you will not be able to be as productive as you want to be, the higher quality of your overall health (physical and mental), the higher the quality of your decisions, relationships, and results.
When you are able to build up from the basics such as eating well, exercising well and being able to have the right people in your life that will provide great instructions, advice, care, and counseling, you will be much better off and be able to face each day with a strong mind and body.
Therapy is Good for the Mind and Overall Health
