What is Mental Health?

Mental health is important at every stage of your life, it includes your emotional, psychological, and social well-being and affects how you think, feel, the choices you make and your behaviour. It also has an influence on how you bounce back from difficult situations that we all face from time to time.

If you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, you can’t sleep, it is really difficult to make decisions, you’re experiencing mood swings or are very low in energy your body and mind is telling you to slow down and take stock.

How do we improve mental health?

Balance is one of the most important things and you cannot balance life without having some kind of self-awareness.  When I look back on my life in the 80’s I was under extreme pressure on all sides.  My relationship was in turmoil, I had a huge mortgage due to the property crash and was holding up 2 part-time jobs as well as my main career.  If I’d known more about mental and emotional health then I may have been able to nip everything in the bud.  But then perhaps I wouldn’t have found my life-calling.

Millions of people worldwide benefit from managing their health and wellbeing with alternative approaches, many of which are thousands of years old, Sound Therapy included. As soon as you feel ‘off balance’ then do something. Don’t waste time, do something as soon as possible without delay. When you are depressed or anxious the temptation is to go into your shell, but before this happens just make small changes each day.
