I was doing my normal volunteering last night, and we came across the topic: Positive Mental Health. The ideas of what positive mental health is was very interesting to hear.
So, what is positive mental health? I define it as being able to maintain and form good relationships with others, to be able to cope and manage with change and to be able to express both negative and positive emotions in a positing coping mechanism.
Whilst having a mental illness could make it more difficult to uphold positive mental health, it is possible and no where near impossible to do.
There’s steps you can take in helping yourself to have a positive mental health:
There’s lots of steps you can take, but don’t be scared to start. YOU can have a positive mental health, and there’s ways to get support when you feel you need it. Every small step you take, is a bigger step into a more fulfilled life.
What have you done today that’s made you feel happy? Proud of yourself? Or even gave you a smile?
I donated some money to a local charity in my town and joined our football team. That’s a few steps for me.
Why not do something for you? Do something you enjoy, go out and meet a few friends, have a chat and talk about a interesting topic.
Every time you do this you’re making yourself more healthier mentally. Remember, there’s a lot of people who suffer from mental illnesses, so you’re not alone through this.
