With the increasing pressures of life and the intensification of competition in various fields, human mental health is more vulnerable than ever. While the focus is mostly on the human body, the importance of mental health is overlooked, often ignoring the signs of risk.
Deutsche Welle quoted the German magazine ‘Vital’ that there are 4 signs of deteriorating mental health, where you must act quickly in order to contain the matter and prevent it from getting worse:
If a person’s mental health is under constant stress, they often isolate themselves from their surroundings and avoid potentially stressful social situations (not being able to meet family and friends).
Quick emotional reactions
Vital magazine notes that those who have a mental health disorder are often not good at dealing with their emotions or the feelings of others, even the small things make them overly emotional or angry.
The fourth sign is physical problems and pain, caused by psychological stress, fears and burnout. Vital magazine explained that blood pressure, for example, rises due to stress and the heartbeat accelerates due to fear.
If stress becomes persistent, it can cause chronic physical problems such as digestive problems or pain, she said.
Tips to improve mental health
On the other hand, Mental Health indicated that there are a set of simple and effective tips that can be followed in order to improve a person’s mental health, including:
Nature has a calming effect on us, helping to feel calm and hopeful and relieving loneliness. It is advisable to take a deep breath in nature in order to enhance communication with your natural surroundings, according to the same source.
Talk to ourselves gently
It’s important to talk to ourselves nicely, as this helps us feel good.
Among the tips for improving mental health is to talk to someone you trust for support. You may find it very difficult to tell the other person how they feel, especially since many of us have learned to keep what they feel inside and try to ignore painful emotions.
Mental Health reports that just talking about things with someone you trust can help you feel comfortable.
