The World Health Organization defines Mental health
as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.
This definition clearly defines the goal that we generally like to achieve. But it will take a joint effort of family, friends and of the community to implement healthy strategies to prevent and manage stress.
To achieve your goal for a healthy, fruitful and productive life you need to learn to cope with stress.
Stress is inevitable part of your life and is responsible for many problems such as anxiety, depression and many other disorders. You can alleviate stress through emotional, mental, spiritual and physical practices.
These basic practices are all integrated with one another. Some of them can be achieve on their own, and others need the help and support of others.
Now that you understand what goal you can achieve, that stress can trigger mental health problems, you need to consider your daily lifestyle and habits that can be improved to reduce stress and increase overall health and well-being.
Achieving wellness begins by practicing good habits!
In order to choose an Action Plan for health and wellness you need to breakdown the larger vision into smaller practical goals. To help you decide you can ask yourself the following questions:
Once you have identified what your specific goal is, it is important to focus on the positive aspects of that goal, and not on the negative. That is, instead of focusing on what is wrong, focus on what you like to achieve.
Also, a steady practice of emotional, mental, spiritual and physical skills builds resilience that helps you to progress even in times of adversity.
