That beach body you’ve been craving to find the motivation to actually obtain? Nah. Experts are suggesting while those physical goals are always wonderful to create and maintain, millions should always be focusing on their overall mental health status as their biggest goals to achieve in the coming years.
Just as you get one body in life, you also only get one mind, and you absolutely must take excellent care of yours. Just like getting enough sleep each night is vital for a productive life, taking an interest in your mental health is crucial. When we think of the topic, it’s almost taboo to tell others that you may need some help getting your mental needs met, be that with a counselor, or by simply investing in a heart to heart with one of your closest friends. Sometimes you just need to vent, while other times, if you notice that you’ve been having difficulty with depression, or anxiety, then perhaps it is time to allow the experts to get you back to being “you”.
Stress and trying to balance it all can be daunting for anyone, and there is absolutely no shame in asking for help piecing it all together. The alternatives to letting your mind suffer can be dangerous, from many turning to alcohol or drugs, or even experiencing suicidal thoughts, so please always turn to someone for help. In 2018, you’ll see more and more private methods of getting that therapy online. You can currently sign up to numerous websites to obtain online therapy that is either face to face via webcams, or you can speak through an online chat, or over the phone if a video chat sounds too overwhelming.
In a recent article on Quartz Media, you can find a slew of other great goals that all tie into improved mental health for 2018. Decreasing your time spent looking at screens for instance can be linked to insomnia, and depression. Small habits like that which most don’t even consider to be bad for their health can truly make a change in your sleep, your productivity, and your overall attitude on daily life!
