World Mental Health Day is an international day to raise awareness of mental health issues and is marked on October 10th this year. Every year since 2013, the World Health Organization (WHO) has organized a global campaign for World Mental Health Day. The theme of this year’s World Mental Health Day 2022 is ‘Make mental health for all a global priority’.
Why World Mental Health Day is important?
This day reminds us that whatever you’re going through, you’re not alone. Over 43 million Americans battle with mental health. Along with this our understanding of mental health grows each year and so does our ability to seek proper treatment.
What are some recommendations to keep up with your mental health?
- Spend some time with your friends and family. This targets the isolation that commonly triggers psychological distress.
- Prioritize your sleep. A regular sleep routine has mental and physical health benefits. Try bedtime yoga on YouTube and sleep podcasts. Try blue-light-blocking glasses.
- Decreasing your use or even achieving sobriety from alcohol, cannabis, nicotine, and/or caffeine can produce notable differences in one’s mental health.
