Maintaining Your Mental Health

Mental health just doesn't happen. We need to learn to pay attention to our emotional needs just as we do for our physical needs. There are ways to improve your mental health: get in touch with your emotions, think about what makes you feel good, sad, angry or stressed. Self knowledge and awareness are critical for mental health as are sharing your life with others, both giving and receiving support or encouragement and taking life's little problems in stride.

There is a physical component to mental health, too. Studies have shown that moderate exercise helps to prevent stress from overwhelming us. Basic requirements like a healthy diet and sufficient sleep are elements which help us cope with the pressures of everyday life.
