The Importance of Mental Health
Regular workouts are proven to be beneficial to the body. But did you know that they have an equally fascinating impact on the brain as well? As per Dr. Erin Reynolds, the Clinical Director of the Baylor Scott & White Sports Concussion Program at The Star in Frisco, Texas, exercising helps in regulating hormones and chemicals within the brain. As an outcome, the person experiences a better mood and higher quality of sleep, thus leading to overall brain health.
We all have memories that we wish we could forget. Memories of experiences in life that still hurt and are so painful it affects our lives to this very day.
More and more people today are facing some of the modern age problems and ailments: syndromes of burnout, stress-related symptoms, and mental exhaustion are slowly but surely conquering the world; and unfortunately, almost no one is spared from this 21st-century plague.
"Get your workout done and you'll feel so much better afterwards!" We've all heard this phrase before, haven't we? International studies and research has shown that this phrase is actually VERY accurate.
According to journalist Sharon Jayson, there is a significant increase in young adults struggling with stress.
All sort of mnemonics were utilized by Greek and Roman orators as well as those of other cultures to memorize their speeches, and, undoubtedly, rhyming was one such way of bringing back to mind the format, intended points, and so on for delivery to their audiences. Yet, as effective an aid as this mnemonic strategy is, this same strategy that is featured in this article's title, without adequate sleep, any communicator will be prone to not the rhetorical device of anacoluthon or that of enallage, which is also employed in the title, but actual inadvertent misspeak.
Everyone has different stress triggers. However, work stress tops the list! According to surveys, one-quarter of US workers say work is the biggest source of stress in their lives. Personally, the worst times in my life have always been largely because of work-related experiences. If you are in this situation yourself, please remember that a good boss can make all the difference. Maybe you could casually start looking for another job...
Would you believe me if I told you that stress is more than an uncomfortable response to a negative event. In fact, stress is NOT just limited to negative events. There are actually two kinds of stress. The first kind is your body's reaction to bad things happening. The second kind can be a good thing. It can be a response to physical challenges and the achievement of personal goals. Whether stress is experienced as pleasant or unpleasant... depends on the situation and the individual.
I’m pretty glad I’m learning so much. It feels like a blessing every single day. This is to me from me. I’m sorry I haven’t been connecting with you for the last year, and I didn’t mean to. I have distanced myself from you because I was ashamed of the things I have done. But I didn’t know that things could be better when we communicate. Even though it is easy to talk, it still challenges my courage. I have put down the wall of shame and now I’m walking toward the very thing that makes me understand you. I am sorry that I had built a wall in the first place, I didn’t know the better ways until I went the wrong way. And it’s truly timely that I understand it now, I would have went to the direction that made me have never met you and here we are.
Can I compare your brain to building a house? Yes I can, and quite easily.
You’d be hard pressed to find an autistic person who hasn’t been labeled with a mental illness in their lifetime. To clarify, autism is an identity and not a mental illness in and of itself. It’s a social disparity to the point of disability, but not an illness. I always see something along the lines of “Autism spectrum disorder is commonly associated with mental illness, such as anxiety, depression, C-PTSD, BPD, bipolar disorder, etc.” These labels make it sound like there’s something medically wrong with us, that we are mentally ill, in need of fixing. Even those who are well meaning autistics reflecting on their own experiences will note that it seems the challenges faced by autistics induce extreme stress, and therefore lead to anxiety and mood disorders. However, the fundamental reason we even treat anxiety and mood, are specifically only when they are “disorders.” Disorder implies functioning improperly. But what if autistics are just responding rationally to a harsh environment?
