Its not a surprise to hear about peoples health these days, In recent years people have realized the importance of proper diet and exercise, and recent surveys show that over the last 20 years people are eating better and working out more often. As most of you know, I am not exactly the model for healthy lifestyle!
Today most people get on average 4 to 6 hours of exercise every day, and make sure that everything they put in their mouths is not filled with sugars or preservatives, but they pay no attention to their mental health, no vacations, not even the occasional long weekend, 60 hour weeks, taking work home with them and even working weekends. All of this for hopes of one day getting that big promotion. What good will it do you when your brain overloads and you have a breakdown in the office. My favourite thing to do, is grab a book and head down to a quiet beach, something about the waves. Nothing brings the world back into focus like relaxing with no distractions. free like the wind, there is no better forms of therapy as far as I am concerned.
Another great way to relieve the stresses in your life and help put a sparkle in your mental health is a trip to the casinos. Most people go to the casinos and expect to go home a winner, I do not. I go to have a good time.
Everyone has different ways to relax, or even work on their diets, I can go on and on about health and mental health, eating healthy foods brings healthy brains, but we have all heard it, its that motivation that pushes.
So this is more of a way to be less stressful or unwinding then do 50 sit ups!
I also enjoy watching an hour or 2 of television every night, some light sitcoms are a great way to lighten your minds load, and laughing out loud for 30 seconds every day is a great way to release stress.
Video games are also great for stress release, you all know I love love love to play.
I hope you try some of these methods or think of some of your own to help keep the stress down in your life and keep your mental health in as good of condition as the rest of you.
