We Are Here To Help Each Other Out
Losing your mind is not something that you should ever entertain. It might sound cool to experiment with drugs because they alter your reality, but many have their reality permanently altered. The mind is extremely precious: it gets us through our day, allows us to experience creative sparks, keeps us functional and provides an opportunity for enjoying the world. Mental health is king!
With physical disorders, you can still manage to function. Of course there are some diseases which rob peoples’ lives way to early. But with mental health, you don’t necessarily lose your life early, but you may continue to suffer for years at a time; some suffer for their entire lives.
It’s important to note that the mind controls the body and not the other way around. If we don’t have a brain, our body becomes useless. The brain is the most vital organ because it controls bodily functions and allows you to experience consciousness. This argument cannot be made with the heart whose sole function is to pump oxygenated blood from your lungs to the rest of the body.
Your heart doesn’t provide you with consciousness and what’s life without consciousness? The only reason we are alive is to be conscious of our surroundings and to experience this creation called “life.” Our body is just here to carry our soul and allow us to survive on planet Earth. That’s why taking care of your mental health is vital to living a good and prosperous life.
Unfortunately, many take their mental health for granted by abusing drugs, not visiting a psychiatrist when depressed or anxious and not getting the proper sleep that they need. Think of your mental health as the health of a computer. Your mind continuously downloads information every second of your waking and sleeping life; it never shuts off.
A computer does the same besides when you press “shutdown.” The problem with a computer is that if you are careless and visit random websites and download a bunch of crap, it will acquire viruses and trojan horses and begin to malfunction. The same can happen with your mental health.
That’s why it’s important to exercise, eat properly, get a good night’s sleep, socialize and maintain a meaningful life. Drugs and alcohol should be minimized or not even used at all. You should try incorporating 10-15 minutes of mindfulness a day and you should always strive to be as happy as you can. Mental health truly is king!
