More often than not, the word health is associated with the well-being of your physical body. Many of us aren’t aware that there are actually more ways to truly be healthy.
Health has more than one subcategory. Other forms of your health to focus on are, mental, emotional and environmental health.
Maintaining good mental health might seem like a hassle but you can do simple things for yourself to do so. Surrounding yourself with people you love and allowing yourself to relax could have a great impact on your mental health. Try not to overwork yourself, its okay to sometimes want a time out.
Sometimes people forget about mental health because they deem it unimportant when its actually very important for one to function properly.Mbile Mushe
Emotional health is definitely something our generation doesn’t take seriously. We often find ourselves in situations that are emotionally draining and don’t even realize it. You can maintain your emotional health by expressing your feelings openly and no, memes don’t count.
With the state of our earth, if there ever was a time to be conscious about your environmental health, it would be now. Environmental health may not be a personal issue, but it only benefits you. Environmental health can be maintained by limiting your water consumption and decreasing your use of plastic, among others.
In a nutshell, other aspects of your health are just as important as physical health. Focusing solely on one’s physical health becomes useless when you neglect other aspects of your life and well-being. To truly be healthy, you must have a balanced approach in all the aspects of your health. After all, if the body is the temple then the mind must be the altar.
