Finding Serenity: Unveiling Mental Health Myths and Truths

- Advertisement -spot_imgspot_img

The last time someone asked how you were doing, what was your response? You probably replied, “Good” or “Everything is fine.” But did you mean it? Too often, we put on a brave face for the outside world, but inside things are falling apart. So, it’s time to shift your focus inward. Give yourself permission to prioritize self-care – starting with a focus on your mental health. 

Empowerment to harness your mental health begins with knowing the facts. So, your sisters at the I’m Loving Me Project are here to debunk the mental health myths. After all, mental health awareness is essential to changing our circumstances as a society. 

Debunking Mental Health Myths

Myth 1: Only people with mental health conditions need to focus on their mental health.

Truth:

Mental health relates to our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. According to the CDC, it affects how we think, feel, and act. So, it’s important for everyone to focus on their mental health, at every stage of life. And, keep in mind, mental health can change over time. Detriments in life can shift personal, professional, or social circumstances – posing the risk of mental health downturns at any time. So, practicing protective strategies can improve resilience and help you maintain a healthier mental well-being.

Myth 2: Developing a mental health condition is not something you can control.

Truth:

While it’s true you cannot decide if you do or do not have a mental health condition. How you manage your mental well-being can limit factors that result in these conditions. By adopting a routine that includes practicing protective strategies, you will be better equipped to overcome adversities. Set boundaries on who you spend time with, where you spend time, and how you spend time. Your healthy choices will go a long way in protecting your mental and personal well-being.

Myth 3: Mental health challenges are caused by stress, which is unavoidable.

Truth:

Sure, stress is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. You can practice techniques, such as mindfulness, to manage the stress before it becomes too overwhelming. Remember, everyone experiences stress differently. How you choose to manage it can be unique too. The CDC offers several strategies for coping with stress.

Myth 4: Seeking support to manage mental health is a sign of weakness.

Truth:

Look, sis, it can be hard to ask for support. As women, we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. But struggling alone can lead you to an unhealthy place. So, seek support as a sign of strength. The National Institute of Mental Health has a list of resources.  Or join a network of like-minded women sharing in your self-improvement journey.

Mental Health Empowerment

Too often, there’s a stigma attached to investing in mental health. Women are especially guilty of putting their own needs last. But if you’re going to lead a fulfilling life, rooted in true happiness and realized success, then you have to foster your mental well-being.

Take control of your mental health by practicing protective strategies.

  • Make space for self-improvement by learning a new skill
  • Monitor personal development by keeping a journal
  • Keep an eye on the future by setting goals
  • Practice mindfulness to manage stress and appreciate the present
  • Exercise to reap mental and physical health benefits
  • Maintain healthy relationships to experience meaningful connections

These strategies can help you take control of your mental health with positivity and purpose.

Your Serenity Awaits

Experience the serenity that comes from self-care. When you’re focused on your well-being, you can overcome life’s stresses, learn well, achieve more, connect with others, and make a meaningful contribution to your community. So, take action now and start focusing on your mental health. Kickstart your path to serenity at the upcoming Self-Ish Retreat presented by the I’m Loving Me Project.  A sisterhood of like-minded women is eager to support your self-improvement journey.
