But what is mental health?
Mental health refers to our cognitive, behavioural, emotional, and social well-being. It is all about how we think, feel, and act. Our mental state determines how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. In short: it determines how we live our lives.
Because mental health problems can have such negative effects on your thinking, mood, and behaviour, taking care of your mental health is important at every stage of life. Knowing how to nourish your mind as you do your body helps to avoid of poor mental health to have negative effects on your physical health, wellbeing, and quality of life.
Since there are many factors affecting your mental health, such as life experiences or biological functions, everyone has the potential to develop mental health problems, no matter how old we are, whether we are male or female, rich or poor, or which ethnic group we belong to.
That is why it is so important to learn how to take care of your mind, just as you take care of your body.
I work with LLFitness to help people improve their mental wellbeing and performance. How? By taking care of their mind. We are working to raise awareness of the benefits of good mental health in Cambodia and highlight all the different ways you can approach holistic wellbeing.
After graduating with a degree in psychology from the UK I have worked with autistic children and a mental health charity. Here in Cambodia, I focus on integrated approaches to improve mental wellbeing through coaching and stress management programmes, facilitating better performance and overall health.
Whatever your background is, and whether you have individual concerns or want to bring out the best in your team, I am sure together we can find a solution.
