MENTAL HEALTH LEADS TO PHYSICAL HEALTH
Everyone has their normal habits or routines and one of mine is going to church on Sunday. The church I go to is one of those churches where we follow the bible and no real denomination, which makes it super enjoyable to me.
This past Sunday our pastor’s wife is the one who gave the message. We are in the middle of a series titled “Healthy for the Holidays” and her message was all about emotional health…..or mental health in a sense.
This topic gets talked about a ton today which is great because it used to NEVER be talked about.
Something that a lot of people don’t connect is that mental health is almost always tied to physical health as well. They both can cause one another.
Have you ever noticed that when you have a ton of stuff to do and are super stressed out is when you’ll get sick, or you’ll throw your back out, or something else “randomly” happens?
Yeah it’s happened to me too!
I recently had someone come in the office that said that they had their back go out at the exact same time last year. This makes total sense because right now is when we are thinking about all the things that we have to do for the upcoming holidays, year end deadlines, potential vacations, and everything else mixed in there.
There is a video that really depicts how our mental health can play a roll on our physical health. It’s a video that showcases 2 plants. Now the plants are in a school and are cared for the exact same way. One of these plants was told loving and encouraging things. The other plant was told negative and mean things. What’s interesting is that the plant that was told negative things started to wilt, while the other one was thriving. This shows that our emotional/mental health is wildly important to our entire health and well-being.
