So, this week was national mental health awareness week here in the UK.
Growing up, I never heard anyone talk about mental health, so it’s great that nowadays information is so easily available.
It is sad but also inspiring to hear people’s own stories and experiences, and their reflections and approaches to managing their own mental health.
It also serves as a reminder that poor mental health can affect anyone, and no one size fits all when it comes to treating or managing it.
There is a connection between mental health and mental wellbeing.
The mental health charity Mind say that “if you experience low mental wellbeing over a long period of time, you are more likely to develop a mental health problem.”
It higlights just how important it is to know yourself so that you recognise when your mental wellbeing is not where it should be for you.
I am not saying this is always straightforward and some instances are more severe than others, but being aware of what makes you feel stressed, anxious, upset or even puts you in a good mood, is great insight so that you can work to adjust your environment to encourage a better state of mind.
