Health stands for a feeling of well-being in physical, emotional, and social terms. Mental well-being is often very strained in everyday life. Fears, excessive demands, unfulfilled expectations, and the like can be everyday experiences that lead to depressing conflicts in relationships, families, and at work – and thus also to emotional stress.
Early warning signals from our body
The signs that the soul is stressed can be manifold. They range from feelings of emptiness, loneliness, and inner restlessness to exhaustion, tiredness, and listlessness. These moods and emotions are an indication that we should take more care of ourselves.
When the balance is lost
We must not turn a blind eye because stressful circumstances can lead to a lasting loss of mental balance. Some people experience serious mental illness during these phases. If this occurs, professional offers of help are needed so that the soul can recover and those affected can participate in life again,
Early caution pays off
At the same time, we can also learn to consciously take care of ourselves and at an early stage to maintain and maintain our mental health, our zest for life, and our zest for life. We have put together some tips for you on how to do this:
Many things take time to be “digested” and processed well. Let us take this time when we need it and allow it to others too.
Listen to yourself
Let us perceive the signals of our body and soul and take them seriously. Then we will be amazed at how clear the signs are often: Why are we out of breath? What makes us angry? What is heavy on our shoulders or in our stomach, and what can we do about it?
Sometimes it helps that we allow ourselves to express unpleasant sensations such as anger, anger, or disappointment instead of – once again – swallowing them.
The phrase “I’m totally stressed!” Has become a long-running favorite. Very often, we are mentally and emotionally tense—the pressure to perform exhausts us. We are exposed to multiple stresses and should be good parents, partners, employees, colleagues, etc. at the same time.
To regain inner peace, we can allow ourselves to take good care of ourselves: take a hot bath, read a book, enjoy good food, go for a walk, and sleep in again.
Enjoy small pleasures
Let us enjoy the little things in life; let us give them value again. A beautiful sunny day, a blooming meadow, a laughing child. Small things and experiences can be a balm for our soul.
Let creativity flow
Many people are shaped by longings, fears, and needs that they cannot express through words. Creative design, making music, and playing together can have a relieving and liberating effect.
Many people spend most of their day sitting today. Regular exercise to balance promotes not only physical but also mental well-being.
Learning something new
Learning new things is a journey of discovery that leads us out of the daily grind. With the decision to learn something new, we also show our willingness to develop further. This can be helpful for our private and professional life. Enjoyable learning is meaningful learning.
We feel the need to share both our joys and sorrows with other people. That assumes that someone is there to listen to us. Conversely, we bring the willingness to listen with us. “I want to understand you” is the essential attitude for a successful conversation.
People long for security in the company of other people. Having a network of good friends cannot be taken for granted – it needs to be cultivated. If we maintain contact with our friends, we can trust that we are not alone, even in crises and conflicts.
Let yourself go sometimes
Nobody can be in a good mood and full of energy all the time. Let us not burden ourselves with such unrealistic ideas. Let us allow ourselves to feel weak, tired, and exhausted without a guilty conscience and allow ourselves the relaxation that we then need.
