How mentally stable are you? This is perhaps one of the scariest questions you’ve been asked. And if you feel threatened by the question, you are not alone.
Everyone is dealing with their own drama in life. However, not everyone may be open to talking about their mental health crisis. Judgments from others when they find out you are not as stable as they thought you were makes the situation much worse. Feelings of shame can prevent people from seeking help. Time and again, they’ve been subtlely told that it’s best for them to keep quiet, “man up,” or “keep a strong upper lip.”
While some may be able to thrive on their own, many others are like you. They need help, and asking for help is a courageous move.
Everyone wants to be calm, focused, and energetic. But it is essential to understand that nobody will feel that way all the time. If you are pushing yourself despite the trauma you are dealing with, you aren’t doing your mental and emotional health any favors.
Why is mental health important? It’s important because it is one of the essential parts of a healthy human. Many of the decisions you make and the way you react to the environment around you is based on your mental health. Not everyone may think mental health is important, but it is. Teaching yourself how to be mentally healthy will amazingly uplift your spirits.

The possibilities are endless. There are more than a handful of ways you can get yourself from one mental state to another. All it takes is a little courage to get better and feel better. If you want to do it, you can make it happen.
Stop. Ask yourself what it is that you are going through right now. What could be causing you to break your pattern of productivity?

Here are things you must remember:

There are many ways you can protect yourself and your mental health from the worst that could happen, but remember these most important tips:
There is no such thing as a perfect mental state. Everyone has their own struggles, and each one is coping with it at his own pace in his own time. Don’t compare yourself to how others are handling their issues. Let yourself and others be.
If you need to get something done, then you have to work on it. Your mental state should not hinder you from completing things for which you are responsible. Whatever it is that is keeping you from producing meaningful work should be dealt with immediately. Learn how to set your issues aside for a moment, finish your project or your other responsibilities, then you can deal with your problem. Don’t worry. You can do it. Even if it’s a slow process, you’ll get it done.
You don’t need to push yourself to change your mental state so that you could do what you need to do. It’s okay to take a step back once in a while.
If you’re really struggling with a negative mental state, commit to dedicating some time every day to do an activity that can help improve it. This will not only help you reach your productivity goals but will help you feel healthier and happier.
