Mental wellness or more broadly, mental health, is more than the absence of mental illness. It is defined as your emotional, psychological, and social well-being.
Whereas physical health is more often addressed through diets, exercise plans, preventative health, doctors visits, and emergency care, mental wellness can often be overlooked. When we discount our mental wellbeing, we are often indirectly damaging our physical health and overall wellness. This is because mental wellness is associated with everything from mood, sleep patterns, stress, and energy levels.
Many factors affect mental wellness. Biological factors, such as genes and brain chemistry, are known to impact how we deal with mental stress. Taking a genetic test can help you assess your risk. A history of mental illness is also a sign that mental problems can run in families. Finally, life experiences such as trauma and abuse can create and/or enhance underlying mental problems.
Whether you are genetically predisposed to mental disorders or not, you can take steps to improve your mental wellness. Eating and exercising well, getting enough sleep, developing coping skills, and seeing a professional when necessary are all important steps to a healthier life. Building and maintaining relationships and social connections are also a great way to enhance mental wellness. For those struggling with a mental disorder, taking proactive steps in their mental wellness journey often leads to increased productivity, positive attitudes, strong relationships, and good stress coping skills.
