While the bulk of our wellness focus typically involves working out and losing weight, not enough importance is placed on improving our mental health. you have nothing if you don’t have your health. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO): ‘Mental health is an integral part to health; indeed, there is no health without mental health.’ But when was the last time you thought of improving your mental health? Mental health refers to the state of our cognitive and/or emotional wellbeing – it’s all about how you think, feel and behave. Mental health not only enables you to cope with the stresses of everyday life but it can also mean an absence of a mental disorder. Your mental health can affect your daily life, relationships and even your physical health. A study from 2012 published in The BMJ found that individuals with poor mental health are at increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. Other research has recently linked mental illness to a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. Boost your wellbeing and stay mentally healthy by following a few steps, so you can be prepared to take on any challenges life may throw at you. www.cosbeauty.com.au 55
