Mental And Physical Health - Deepstash

Mental And Physical Health

We have always been taught that mental and physical health are two separate entities existing in different planes.

Our mind and body, surprisingly to many, are not two different things.

If someone leaves their job due to a physical injury, it is considered normal, but if the same person is leaving the job due to a mental health issue, then their decision is criticised and they may even have to deal with long-lasting consequences.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

Many people do not speak about their mental health until the absolute breaking point due to the stigma that society attaches to psychological problems.

  • The truth is that self-care and mental health is something that needs to be given proper attention.
  • Only taking care of the physical body is simply not enough.
  • There shouldn’t be a demarcation between mental of physical, as both are health issues related to the individual.
  • It is not selfish to value yourself and prioritize your health.
