Staying Mentally Healthy
Staying Mentally Healthy is like Staying Physically Fit
We all want to be healthy and happy, and good mental health is vitally important for both. No one can be truly healthy without good mental health. It involves how we feel, think, act and interact with the world around us. Mental health is about coping with the normal stresses of life and making a contribution to our community.
Your Path to Mental Well-Being
Good mental health isn’t about avoiding problems or trying to achieve a “perfect” life. It’s about living well and having the tools for coping with difficult situations even during life’s challenges. Each person’s path to mental well-being is unique. We all have our own goals, our own challenges, our own talents and our own supports. But good mental health is within everyone’s reach.
Staying mentally healthy is like staying physically fit – it requires a little effort every day, but the rewards are worth it! Everyone has to face stresses and demands, but we all need and deserve breaks. Devote a little of each day to improving your mental health. You’ll reap the benefits in the same way that daily physical exercise makes you stronger and fitter.
