Mental Wellbeing

Often there is confusion about what mental health means. Many people immediately start thinking about severe conditions like chronic depression and personality disorders – but there are other factors that create feelings of anxiety and worry, that may impact our mental and emotional wellbeing.

Everyone has “mental health” and this can be thought of in terms of:

  • How we feel about ourselves and the people around us
  • Our ability to take care of ourselves physically, emotional
  • Our capacity to take care of our financial needs
  • Having the strength to overcome the difficulties and challenges we can all face at times
  • Being mentally healthy is also about believing in ourselves and having the confidence to make good decisions.

It is quite normal to experience stress and feel worried when things don’t go as you hope- The most common involve work, money matters and relationships with partners, children or other family members. Everyone faces pressure at certain times, and sometimes even a moderate level of stress makes us perform better, but stress is only healthy if it is short –lived. Excessive or prolonged stress can lead to physical illness and emotional exhaustion- which can eventually lead to mental illness

It’s been one helluva year, 2020. And so, as it gradually draws to a close, many South Africans will be looking forward to the holiday season. This is typically the time to switch your mind off work, prepare for the festive season, just chill, or hang-out with friends. Typically it is also the time when we spend more money on gifts, parties, spending our bonuses (for those lucky enough to receive such a blessing) on luxury items, or new clothes, or going away on holiday.

Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear. They are likely to be all around; in a meeting, queueing in the canteen, or rubbing shoulders in a taxi. So reach out with kindness and love – you may prevent a trauma, even save a life, and help restore hope and belief in life.

Feeling worn out with low tolerance?

When it comes to cultivating resilience, the magic is in the very first step.
When cultivating your resilience become aware of your mental and emotional state. Remember that if you get into an anxious, or even angry ‘state’, you can easily go into a downward spiral where the negative feeling gets stronger. That’s called a ‘feedback loop’.

In these challenging times you could be feeling worn-out and experiencing low tolerance. Yes, we have also been warned that we will all be facing unexpected challenges for some time. So how do you navigate these stormy waters?
