Mental Health

Mental health refers to our emotional well-being and how we manage our thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. It is important to have a healthy mental approach to life and to manage stress in order to maintain mental health. Maintaining a healthy mental approach to life means accepting that life isn’t perfect and that you won’t get everything you want. It also means being open to new experiences and trying new things even if you’re afraid. Managing stress means recognizing when you’re feeling stressed and taking steps to reduce that stress. Everyone experiences stress, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Stress can be helpful because it can motivate you to take action and push you to exceed your limits. However, too much stress can have negative consequences on your mental health.
