3 Pillars of Mental Health ( not 4 )

  1. Spiritual . What do you believe? Your Core Values, the beliefs you have for the present life and the one after. How are you nourishing your soul?
  2. Social/Environment/Finances. Friends are important because they bring companionship, support and enrichment to our lives. According to the Mayo Clinic, people who have friends are generally physically and emotionally healthier and enjoy a better quality of life. Who are you around? What are you around?  According to a 2016 study, 40 percent of us experience stress due to money issues, often enough to negatively affect our work and relationships. Financial wellness is not about having a certain amount of money at your disposal; it’s about feeling in control of your finances, being able to handle financial setbacks, and being on track to achieve your financial and life goals.
  3. Physical/Biological. Mental and physical fitness and health are intertwined. You can improve both through a healthy diet, regular exercise, and enough sleep. You can also reduce your risk of developing chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression. How are you staying active? How are you attending to your physical wellness.
