Integrity Urgent Care knows that physical and mental health are inexplicably linked and for us to best treat our patients physically, we have to address the mental side of their well-being. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks to boost your mental health as you go through your day.
Our bodies are more linked than we often realize. Instead of looking at different parts of our health separately, the team at Integrity Urgent Care wants to treat our patients, community, and friends in their entirety. By considering the connections between mental health and physical health, we can do a better job at identifying problems and working at solving them, together.
Caring for yourself is more than eating right, exercising, and coming to see the team of medical staff at Integrity Urgent Care. Caring for yourself can also mean taking care of your metal health, in a variety of settings and in response to different kinds of stress. By learning coping skills that work for you, because everyone will cope differently, you will be a better version of yourself in any scenario.
It seems a little different, to consider loneliness in a world that finds a way to be more connected every day. Even working through the pandemic families and friends found ways to spend time together remotely, outside, and in other creative ways. Despite the ways we can be with those we love and care about, it is still very common for people to feel lonely in a variety of situations. Integrity Urgent Care wants you to know that there are ways you can help yourself, when feeling this way.
Relax. Take it easy. You need a break. Chill. Our society recognizes over scheduling, over worked, over tired, and over stressed as an issue, but these terms seem to be the best solutions that are breaking through the noise of managing the stress in our lives. Stress isn’t going anywhere, but how we manage it and how we talk about it can impact its effect on each of us. Integrity Urgent Care recognizes that we all have different triggers of stress and different levels of stress that can use practical solutions to help us live our lives better.
Under the best circumstances, caring for and learning more about mental health is a good idea. Add in extra stressors, whether local, global, or both, and paying attention to fluctuations and changes in your mental health is imperative to staying healthy. Knowing some of the signs and concerns about different mental health issues and changes can assist in heading things off or getting the help you need to stay healthy.
We applaud the efforts and strides being made to increase mental health awareness in our communities around the globe. Mental health is a vital component of overall health and one that has long been ignored. In fact, the more we discuss and talk about it, in person, through articles, and in other forms of media, the better we can help one another and understand our journeys. Each one of us has scenarios where we can use a mental boost, whether from stress of illness, current events, job circumstances, or a little bit of everything weighing down at once. Integrity Urgent Care is here to help protect your physical and mental wellness with these tips.
Does the thought of shorter days and longer nights with the coming fall and winter months cause you to feel more down that you think you should? The changing seasons cause changes in the way we feel as well, but if the feelings linger and you have felt moody and unenergetic for more than a couple of days, you may be experiencing SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder.
