When was the last time you took a mental health day off from work? While this might not be necessary or practical for many of us, it does highlight how we tend to pay more attention to our physical health than our mental health. And yet, it is important that we do not neglect our mental and emotional health.
Mental health awareness involves making an effort to be conscious of our needs and our feelings. This is an important part of how we prevent our stress level from building up to the point where we begin to feel overwhelmed.
