May Is MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH!
Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being, and mental illnesses are common and treatable.
So much of what we do physically impacts us mentally – it’s important to pay attention to both your physical health and your mental health, which can help you achieve overall wellness and set you on a path to recovery.
This May is Mental Health Month, COR is raising awareness about the connection between physical health and mental health, through the theme #4Mind4Body. We are exploring the topics of animal companionship, spirituality and religion, humor, work-life balance, and recreation and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness.
A healthy lifestyle can help to prevent the onset or worsening of mental health conditions, as well as chronic
conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. It can also help people recover from these conditions. For those
dealing with a chronic health condition and the people who care for them, it can be especially important to focus on
mental health. When dealing with dueling diagnoses, focusing on both physical and mental health concerns can be
daunting – but critically important in achieving overall wellness.
There are things you can do that may help. Finding a reason to laugh, going for a walk with a friend, meditating,
playing with a pet, or working from home once a week can go a long way in making you both physically and mentally
healthy. The company of animals – whether as pets or service animals— can have a profound impact on a person’s
quality of life and ability to recover from illnesses. A pet can be a source of comfort and can help us to live mentally
healthier lives. And whether you go to church, meditate daily, or simply find time to enjoy that cup of tea each
morning while checking in with yourself – it can be important to connect with your spiritual side in order to find that
COR wants everyone to know that mental illnesses are real, and recovery is always the goal. Living a healthy lifestyle may not be easy but can be achieved by gradually making small changes and building on those
successes. Finding the balance between work and play, the ups and downs of life, physical health and mental health, can help you on the path towards focusing both!
