Mental health is important. More important than physical health, always. I think of my mind as an extension of myself, it needs to stay just as healthy as the rest of my body. But mental health is something that we neglect and we do not take seriously. I know for a fact that when I am sad, angry, stressed or any type of upset I can not focus on the things that I need to do. When I'm down in the dumps it's hard to go to the gym or want to prep my meals. But bottom line having a fit body does not mean you are healthy becuase health begins with the mind.
You should meditate, write things down and try as hard as you can to keep positive thoughts. Mental health is a life long journey just like fitness. Know that when life gets too much or things get too stressful, to take a break or take a mental health day. Your boss, your family and your friends will thank you for taking time to clean up the negative thoughts so you don't pollute someone else's day with the negative energy. Learning about yourself and your mind can prevent you from having a bad week or a bad month and it can limit it to just having a bad day or a bad few hours. But I can not stress enough to never ever be afraid to reach out if you are depressed, someone will listen. And please take care of your mind, it is essential. ❤️
And if you were wondering why all the pictures of the sky, the sky reminds me that even when things are dark and gloomy the sun will come out and things will never be dark forever ☀️#inspiration #positivethinking #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #health
