Do you think your heart is the most complex organ? Let’s meet someone who is being neglected for years, taking all the emotional baggage, even of our heart. Let’s meet our mind, who’s health is not being considered as precious as physical health. A human mind is the most fragile part which carries all the stress and keeps a check on you, but it is necessary to keep a check on it too.
And for that, World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. The history of the day goes back to the year 1992 when an initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health celebrated the first-ever World Mental Health Day on October 10.
Every third person among us is suffering from mental health issues like anxiety, depression, stress etc. which we usually overlook in the race of the world or thinking what would others think of it.
But now, modern society is breaking the taboos related to mental health. People now understand that taking care of their mind won’t label them as a mad person, and it’s okay to seek help if things don’t fall in line. Our mental health is more valuable than considering what people would think. So let’s take a pledge to prioritize our mental health and also keep a check on our closed ones.
So let’s normalize a few things
Repeat after me
It’s okay to not excel in every field.
It’s okay to be anxious about certain things. We all are nervous at some point.
It’s okay if you are confused. Just take a deep breath and move further.
Remember, we all make mistakes.
Do more what makes you happy and satisfied.
It’s vital to love yourself and be proud of what you are. Give yourself some priority.
It is okay to ask for help.
So, celebrate every moment and don’t stop yourself from enjoying little moments; Play your favorite music and enjoy your day. Your mental health is more precious than other’s thoughts. So live and stay happy.
