Last year in 2020, I joined Cause a chatter campaign to share my perspective, observation, and understanding of the things around me. Following the motive, I tried my best to cover most of the aspects regarding the change in our life due to the uncalled entry of a deadly Virus that we named Coronavirus.
We were so hopeful that may Mayhem will end soon, if not then by the end of the unfortunate year 2020 for sure. Our hopes and beliefs were shaken with the news of the second wave of the virus from Britain. Vaccinations are introduced, josh is high, and we know we will come out as a winner.
In 2021 Blogchatter has come up with a newly renovated theme of the campaign ‘Cause A Chatter Blogging With A Purpose’ by adding three categories of causes Mental Health Talks, Gender Talks, and Environmental Talks by Blogchatter. Out of which, one has to choose a minimum of one and a maximum of three causes to get registered. I registered for the campaign this year too, under the cause Mental Health Talks.
Why Mental Fitness Comes Before Physical Fitness?
- To keep a fit body, one must prepare his mind to make all the fitness goals like reschedule the daily routine, eating habits, sleeping hours, hitting the gym, or practicing yoga to burn the excess fat.
- Even after so much carefulness if your body catches any illness, to get back on your feet before any doctors and medicines, strong mental health required the most in the form of will-power.
- ‘Only A Healthy Mind Can Leads A Healthy Body,’ No matter how many hours you are giving in shaping your body? How many steps are you walking? How many fibers and vitamins are you taking in your meal? All effort would go in vain if you missed carrying a pill of positivity in your mind.
- The persona of positivity doesn’t mean letting go of the things that bother you, creating negativity around you. It only means a dimension shift of thoughts by keeping yourself in other activities. The reason a dull mind sooner or later starts affecting the body.
Mental Health is something that has to be placed an inch above Physical Health. It doesn’t mean that physical health comes second, absolutely not. But yes, to acknowledge, physical fitness matters, and honest effort towards it definitely comes only when mental health is in the right direction. It could be attained by sharing inner feelings bound with the attribute of self-acceptance. This practice roots the starting point of a healthy lifestyle in the true meaning.
In this series of Mental Health Talks, I will bring some cause and effect of mental pressure we as a society member; as humans, we do face different job fields, at a different age, in different strata, and in different forms like seen unseen. Unfortunately, hardly prefer to utter a word related to us. Opposite to that, we become a bundle of knowledge when it happens with others.
So let’s be a little talkative, let’s talk about unspoken feelings, let’s talk about everything we face, we do but ignore to speak up. Let’s be the listener without being judgemental.
Stay tuned for my next post t in the series of cause a chatter.
