It is important to have a healthy life both physically and mentally. Some might think physical is more important than mental or vice versa. However, both physical and mental healthiness are equally essential. In some circumstances, we may not even realize that we have mental health issues until it gets worse. There are some noticeable symptoms to observe your own mental health state whether you are mentally healthy or not.
First of all, it may show in your diet changes. You might have had the usual diet all your life and not know why your eating habits dramatically change. For example, you start to lose appetite or eat too much food than normally. It probably happens when you feel tense, stressed or depressed. Therefore, you develop to lose or gain weight unexpectedly. Thus, it is indeed a mental health issue. If you encounter this experience, you may need to seek help from anyone who can help cheer you up.
Second, if you have an unstable mental health, you may also experience the changes of your sleeping routines. For instance, you used to have a regular and an adequate amount of sleep, but then you turn to have inadequate sleep or sleep too much than usual. Probably, some people continually think about problems they are going through, so they find it difficult to sleep then. Some feel emotionally exhausted when they think too much, so they decide to sleep longer than they always do. It is another symptom that your mental state is not normal.
Last but not least, when your mental issue becomes serious, it is more noticeable. Like, you used to be happy and sociable around people, but then you gradually want to be alone in a quiet place and avoid talking to people. Distancing oneself and not sharing to anyone about whatever you are going through is a dangerous state. When you feel all of these, you have to share it with anyone whom you can count on.
To sum up all the points above, we all should be aware of those states of mental issues because their consequences can harm many lives across the globe these days. Some might notice and overcome those states easily and safely, but others may not be aware of what mental health issues do until it eventually happens to themselves.
