Investing in your mental health
Corona, war, and climate are just three of the current issues that have us stuck in permanent crisis mode. Daily stress and global escalations can cause our emotional, psychological, and social well-being to falter – especially when the (inner) stress level is constantly high, mental health takes a hit. Before this happens, however, we can take remedial action and recharge our batteries before they are completely exhausted. For the term, mental health encompasses more than the absence of mental impairments and disorders such as exhaustion, burnout, depression, or cognitive impairment. Mental health also includes positive aspects such as well-being, job satisfaction, work engagement, and personal and work-related resources that we can positively influence. Together with a psychologist from our mental health support partner Openup, we hosted a virtual session to learn about the concept of mindfulness.
