Discover How to Care for Your Mental Health!
While many of us may not devote as much attention to our mental health as we do our physical health … the truth is it is just as important to our well-being and our ultimate enjoyment of life.
Our mental health affects how we handle stress and anxiety, how we relate to others in our lives and ultimately how we make important decisions. Poor mental health can also lead us into substance misuse.
Unfortunately, most of us live lives today that are filled with stress and anxiety – and few things in this world are as bad for you as stress.
It’s true. In fact, stress can kill you. New research shows that stress can damage everything from your gums to your heart and make you much more susceptible to getting everything from the common cold to cancer.
What may be even more alarming, however, is that while many people know they have a stress problem there are many others who are under stress and they don’t even realize it.
It’s Time You Discovered the Truth About Stress…
Were you aware of the following statistics:
● 75% of the general population experiences at least "some stress" every two weeks (National Health Interview Survey)
● Millions of suffer from unhealthy levels of stress at work (The Health Resource Network, Inc.)
● Stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure and strokes. It also affects the immune system, which protects us from many serious diseases. Stress also contributes to the development of alcoholism, obesity, suicide, drug addiction, cigarette addiction and other harmful behaviors.
What About Depression?
Depression has also become very common today. And due to the historical stigmatism associated with the disorder, it often remains a silent topic.
But the mind and body work in unison, as one single unit. When the brain becomes imbalanced it impacts the rest of the body. Just as diabetes, leukemia and heart disease are medical conditions, the same is true of depression. Dissimilar to other chronic illnesses, the depressive order is triggered by the stresses of everyday living.
So what can you do to beat stress, anxiety, depression and substance misuse? The National Health Service (NHS) offers a variety of services – including services for drug problems, stress relief services, services for depression and anxiety and more.
