What is mental health?
Mental health is "a resource that helps us think, feel, relate and function"1
Unlike animals, the complex and fascinating mechanism of our mind allows us to act intelligently and combine rational thinking with primal instincts. Thanks to this balance, we can meet many different challenges and manage different activities in a more comprehensive way. Most of the time we focus on what we are doing at the moment, we know what results our behavior will cause, we can also think about alternatives and other possible solutions to the same problem.
Why is mental health important?
Our mind enables us to function on a daily basis and to reflect on what we can do to improve the way we function and relate to the world in the future.
Mental health is the basis of a conscious and active life. If people feel mentally healthy, active and relaxed, they are in control of themselves and their actions. Mental health allows you to live each moment intensely because you can focus on the moment itself and how to interact with it and the world around you, without any obstacles or hindrances.
The biggest enemy of mental health is stress. If you allow yourself to experience stress and bad thoughts, you will not be able to fully experience what is happening to you.
