Mental health is a huge part of an adolescents life as school plays a major role in it. 

According to mental “Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.” This is the simplest way of explaining what it is when one says mental health. A major thing in boosting mental health is to realize your purpose and the way you want to fulfill life

How can you begin your journey to a better mental health?

Starting and learning of yourself is different for every individual and may take longer for some. Start by thinking about what are the things that make you happy and continue to repeat that everyday. You won’t always succeed the first time you attempt to stabilize your mental health but that’s okay it takes time!Mental health carries along two other things with it taking care of yourself mentally of course but physically and emotionally. Caring for yourself differs from someone else’s but doing little things for yourself is what matters with this.You need to really want to take care of yourself to really improve because what’s the point if you’re putting in your biggest effort to grow as a person.

We all know school plays a major role in someone’s life especially  during these difficult times.Balancing out school with your personal life and the things you have going on takes time to balance out and taking care of yourself mentally  should always come first in these situations because in order to be motivated you need to be satisfied with yourself. We can all improve on ourselves and grow as a person so taking that leap  and putting yourself first can help you more than you even know.
