We can fake our smiles, but not our

Mental pain is less dramatic than
physical pain, but it is more common and also harder to bear.

Our Mental Health is our responsibility, if we don’t maintain it at this point in our lives it will be a heavy luggage
of waste on our brain. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and
social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps
determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental
health is important at every stage of life, especially in College. Being in college in the first instance, things are going to be great the first two weeks,
but all of a sudden we lose track of things, it
usually starts in our social life
and then we start overthinking and eventually lead to the sad story of stress
and depression.
is the case when we allow our mental health to deteriorate, which is sometimes
caused by external factors such as overwhelming assignment, the burden of
meeting an assignment deadline, the
verge of doing exams and overall caused by the mismanagement of your mental.

Don’t tell me to snap out of it

Everyone feels worried or anxious or down from time to time when we
have a poor mental health. Like that of
physical health, if our body does not
have a substantial amount of substance in our diet it will deteriorate. But
relatively few people develop a mental illness. What’s the difference? A mental
illness is a mental health condition that gets in the way of thinking, relating
to others, and day-to-day function. Two or three weeks later college, as this in common in the college
environment, pressure starts to escape in the atmosphere,
workload became too heavy to carry and your
social starts to deflate. This should not be the case at colleges should not only base
on academics as many would like to
believe. At some point, you might feel
you are stuck between a rock and a hard place,
you’re stressed and don’t know what to do about. But this feeling not
only affects our academic performance but has a negative impact on our
physical health as well. Many of us can attest to some of these examples such as:
Eating or sleeping too much or too
Pulling away from people and usual
Having low or no energy
Feeling numb or like nothing matters
Having unexplained aches and pains
Feeling helpless or hopeless
Smoking, drinking or using drugs more than usual
Feeling unusually confused, forgetful,
on edge, angry, upset, worried, or scared
Many of us can attest to these at some point in time in our college experience.

SHARING IS CARING: Speak to Someone
Speak to Someone
Many persons will eventually overcome the overwhelming
wave of mental disparity by speaking to someone it can be a close friend family
or relative or even your teacher/ lecturer. The benefit of Positive mental
health allows one to: Realize their full potential, Cope with the stresses of life,
Work productively and Make meaningful contributions to their communities.
Ways to maintain positive mental health include:
professional help if you need it
with others
physically active
enough sleep
coping skills
Remember our mental health is just as important because it affects our Social,
Spiritual and emotional health as all of them are interdependent. Therefore it
should be ones primary responsible at all times.

We have a small favor to ask. People are reading the Haute Lifestyle than ever since our recent placement in the South Florida Blogger Awards but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. We do not have investors and everything Blog related is funded out of pocket– we want to keep our journalism as fun and open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our article takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective and voices matter – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our posts, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure.
