Wellness: World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day is observed annually on October 10th, the objective is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world. Most people don’t realize that not only can normal everyday stress interfere with your physical health, it also causes anxiety and anxiety can lead to depression; these are all very common mental health issues that no one likes to talk about.

With that said, I’d like to share suggestions from my personal experience to anyone who is struggling with stress, anxiety, depression or if you’re just feeling a little overwhelmed: 1) tackle one day/problem at a time, 2) surround yourself with positive energy while also steadily minimizing as many stressors as possible 3) indulge in self-care and things that make you happy, and 4) understand that talking about your feelings or getting help from a professional doesn’t mean you’re deranged or frail because it actually takes great strength to admit you need help.
