Mental health is an essential part of our life. The key to living healthy and leading a prospering life relies on good mental health conditions.  Mental health relies on emotional, psychological and social developments. A person with a bad mental health condition is just like a body without bones.

Mental health constitutes the process of thinking, evaluating and processing your thoughts into action. Our mental health is a result of how we process our day. What is our mood and behaviour throughout the day? It helps in the decision-making process. Stress and anxiety are often the results of bad mental health.

Why is Mental health essential?

When we talk about mental health it has a very wide spectrum and is not limited to a single factor which has an adverse effect. Mental health is an essential part of our life and caters for the process of behavioral changes, emotions, stress, anxiety, etc. mental health also has an adverse effect on the body's hormones and disturbs them frequently. While a huge amount of stress can worsen the body's conditions as it may result in the increased synthesis of insulin. 

Mental health also plays a vital role in your relationship with people. A person with bad mental health will probably be bad and misogyny in terms of relationships. They will always be irritated and fussed up.

Mental health also has an effect on the day to day activities and alters them accordingly. Tired and terrified in an activity, distressed, unenergetic, disappointed and unwilling to do a certain activity is often a result of bad mental health. It creates a series of doubts in the person and disturbs their confidence.

Mental health has a varied area of discussion and which is why medical education related to mental wellbeing has become a need of the hour.

How to improve your mental health?

Countering mental health and taking steps to improve them is what you should do in order to improve your mental health conditions.

You need to start small. Taking baby steps every alternative day is what will help you to manage your mental health goals. You can start by involving in certain physical activities like jogging, running or anything you like to do physically that will help you increase the blood flow and make you feel energetic.

Try changing your diet. What you consume also affects your mental health. Try taking a balanced diet and food that will not upset your tummy. A clean body is home to a peaceful mind. Many non profit organizations for mental health like IMANA, will be willing to lend you a hand.

When should you seek professional help?

Mental traumas can sometimes be out of your control. You may not know how to cope with them. Feeling lost may feel normal. When your happy hormones are affected, that is when you can seek professional help.

Here are certain ways you can get help:

Reaching out and discussing your problems with someone whom you can trust can be a good start to breaking those piled-up traumas and fears.

If you feel like you're about to explode and can't handle the uninvited stress that's when you can seek professional help. A psychiatrist or qualified medical professional can help you get out of this rut. If you don't know anyone, contact a medical association; they will know how to guide you. 


Taking care of our mental health is extremely important as it determines the other aspects of our lives. Bad mental health ruins the body as well as the mind.
