Why Taking Care Of Our Mental Health Is So Important

Last updated by Katie M.

There has been a lot of talk about mental health lately, and for good reason, most because the Covid-19 pandemic has put a lot of us to the test. With more and more influential people speaking out about their struggles, notably Prince Harry; the discussion is finally opening up, which means we need to be ready for it. So, what is mental health? How do we preserve ours? How can we evaluate it? The Wengood team is here to answer all of your questions.

Why Taking Care Of Our Mental Health Is So Important

Now, we may be able to fool our thermometer when checking our temperature, but mental health presents a whole different scenario and oftentimes the suffering; although in most cases invisible, goes much deeper. Even if we’re not feeling great in ourselves, many of us will remember a time when we pretended that we were okay when asked, although we definitely weren’t.

What is mental health?

👩⚕️ Its definition from the World Health Organization (WHO) reminds us that being healthy doesn't just mean "not being sick." Being in good health should also refer to a satisfactory level of well-being in terms of social relationships, absence of psychological disorder, and even in terms of personal fulfillment.

For the WHO, "being healthy" also means being in good mental health!

Why is it important to take care of it?

It is important to take care of our mental health because it is precisely what will define our level of energy to get through life's challenges. Let's take the example of physical health, someone who is in perfect physical shape will get through a minor illness better than someone who is in very poor health for whom even a minor illness could have serious consequences. It's the same with mental health!

🧠 The higher the level of mental health we have, the more we will be able to react positively to the trials of life.

How can we take care of our mental health?

In reality, taking care of our mental health means building an ecosystem that will allow us to be totally fulfilled. Modern psychology has observed that this ecosystem systematically involves good relationships with those around us, but also touches on:

  • The quality of our personal relationships with our family, our friends, will tend to considerably increase our level of mental health.
  • Furthermore, the quality of our sleep and our lifestyle in general will also contribute to the quality of our mental health. If we sleep well, if we have a healthy and balanced diet, this will tend to act positively on our psyche and activate an increase in our mental health.
  • Finally the quality of our life experiences: a job we love, a passion, rewarding activities that allow personal fulfillment... This will also tend to improve our mental wellbeing.
