Small Steps To Mental Wellness

It has become almost impossible for people to balance the scales, be it work-life balance, personal-professional balance or be it school/college-life balance.



As stated by Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, good mental health translates to good physical health. But for someone who works 9 to 5, the time to actively work on their mental or physical health may seem like a Herculean task. What if we told you that there are ways to ensure your mental well-being for a healthy life?



In conversation with Jasdeep Mago, a neuropsychologist and the CEO of Invisible Illness, and Arouba Kabir, a counselling psychologist, and founder of Enso Wellness, we tried to ponder upon the true meaning of mental wellness and how a working professional can achieve it through small steps of self-care.



What Is Mental Wellness?


Jasdeep explains, “we see people taking care of their physical illness or health probably because the signs are pretty obvious but they often neglect their mental state as the signs for that aren’t that obvious and go unnoticed.”



According to psychologist Arouba “Mental wellness is a positive attribute of one’s overall health. It refers to a state which isn’t just a lack of a mental illness but a state wherein one's mind is in sync with their body and both function together to establish holistic wellness.”  So essentially, it's a harmonious ballet between the mind and the body.



Is Mental Wellness Just About Emotional Well-Being?


Emotions undoubtedly play a significant part, but there are other factors also involved. Thinking, analysing, judging, and executive decision-making abilities, as well as the ability to use language and communication skills, are all aspects of mental health. The term "mental well-being" refers to all cognitive abilities. Again, everything circles back to creating a balance.



Everybody experiences adversity. However, there are times when negative thoughts give rise to unpleasant feelings that can cause more than just the ups and downs that most people occasionally go through. These unpleasant emotions can then cause sadness, anxiety, avoidance, and problematic thinking. It's critical to take action if these symptoms are having a negative influence on your life or the life of a loved one. So, don’t be afraid to reach out - for help and to help!



If you or someone you love is struggling with their mental health, please reach out for help. You can book a session with licensed therapists from our mental health experts, MindPeers right here.
