Mental Health

Mental health affects you more than you think. You know that, “I hate talking about my feelings,” or “not wanting to let people see you … cry, angry, lash out, depressed, (unstable to sum it up)”? The why of it has to do with mental health.

Mental health is nothing to be ashamed of. Mental health takes work. Anybody claiming not to need to check in with their own mental health status is lying. To you and to themselves. I’ve never known anything to not need maintenance ever. Mental health as it relates to wellness, is about acknowledging that it’s one of the things that intersects towards your overall health. Remember, wellness looks at your health overall and health isn’t just one thing, but an overlap of things. Things you’d think to think of like your physical health. Other things you wouldn’t think to think of like you’re financial state, or your mental health. That’s wellness. It looks at everything.

There’s more to talk about when it comes to mental health. This isn’t it, but for today I just wanted to bring it to your attention that this is an area of your own health you should be looking into. Start thinking about what mental health means to you.There’s more to this conversation, and there will be a part two, three, four, who knows how many (it’s a long conversation) so in the meantime, would it be so bad if the next thing I talk about is the benefits of hydration? It’s summer and all. We’re also quarantined, but we’re not quarantined from going outside so. If the next post is about hydration, know that the conversation about mental health isn’t over. It’s just beginning (I said that last part for dramatic effect. Let me know if chills just suddenly ran down your spine).

Hi, nice to meet you I'm Paula. I created Your Welltivity because I've been wanting to share what I know about wellness for the longest. I got introduced to wellness through physical fitness and nutrition (my two strongest facets of wellness actually because my background is in these two areas). But over the years, I got into health as a whole and wanted to learn more about everything that intersects to make a person healthy. So I learned that things like your environment, your mental health, etc. all come to play, and I just kept getting deeper and deeper into it because (to put it plainly) this shit's fascinating. I'm no expert though. I'm still learning, and plan to stay learning because there's so much to learn about wellness. While I do that though, I thought I'd share what I do know. Thanks for stopping by to get to learn a little bit about me, email me if you'd like at paula.yourwelltivity@gmail.com, I'd like to hear from you :) Follow Your Welltivity on Instagram @yourwelltivity. Follow me on Instagram if you'd like @a_m_paula Thank you again for your time, have a lovely and blessed day.
