WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Mental health can be seen as an individual’s “condition” with regard to their psychological and emotional wellbeing.

Life throws many fireballs at us each and every day, and we are always learning ways to block this negativity from our life. At times, as we all know, we can ‘fall’ and become susceptible to stressors that could negatively impact not only our mental health, but our physical health too. Have you ever felt so emotionally drained that you haven’t had the ‘energy’ to get out of bed? This is what we mean.

Lively Lifestyles firmly believes that a combination of general knowledge in the field of psychology (things such as stress-management techniques, for example), a healthy diet and active lifestyle,  all contribute to a mentally healthy person!
