Maintaining proper mental health is one of the most important aspects of maintaining overall health. Your brain is the control centre for every function in your body and the most complex organ in your entire system. Lack of attention to this important part of your system will almost certainly lead to symptoms in other areas. In fact, chronic stress is a major factor in a host of diseases including cancer and heart disease.
The first step to better mental health is understanding what causes poor mental health and understanding that …. YOU ARE IN CONTROL!!!
While it is often stated that 1 in 5 people will experience issues with mental health at some point in their lives, we believe that number to be much higher when all of the components of poor mental health are considered. When is the last time you felt:
Simply unhappy with the way you are living life?
While these feelings may seem like they are simply a part of daily life, they are not. In fact, our frantic pace of life has simply made it feel normal to be stressed and worried and fatigued and irritable. The truth is that this is anything but normal. At 365Wellness we understand that having the right supports and feeling safe and secure are the most important aspects of achieving better mental health and living a happier and healthier life. That’s why we give each and every client of 365Wellness access to mental health resources through our mental health counsellor Russell Tuton BSW MSW . We believe in you and we want to be a part of your success story!
