We all must have read or heard the phrase “mind, body, and soul.” These three words co-exist, and these three entities are also co-dependent on each other. We are aware of the symptoms when going through some physical diseases. When we sense that we developed symptoms for fever, flu, or cough, our next action is to visit a hospital to get the treatment. This action of ours indicates our efforts to recover and sustain our happiness.
We all are always concerned about keeping our health and body functions intact. Have we ever thought about our mental health? It is not famous from where that idea generated, but we believe that it learned that it is terrible to talk about your emotional health. Talking about our psychological health is as important as our physical health. If your mind is not healthy, your body will not sustain for longer.
Women are known to be housemaker as they have to shoulder the responsibility of looking after their kids, house chores, and their health. We cannot deny the fact that most women often lack sufficient nutrients, vitamins, and a balanced diet. The reasons can vary for the lack of such nutrients, but the primary goal is they neglect their health to keep their family members intact. Women are also prone to emotional dilemmas like violence, harsh tones, and rudeness, and if they are working as well, they are also likely to burnout and work stress. Women and men both can have mental health issues, but they only seek a professional’s help when things are no longer in our control.
Seeking help for our psychological comfort is always taken as a taboo or wrong, but in reality, it is the best help we can get. We can heal quickly from our physical ailments, but our mental health requires a lot of time to recover. There are multiple mental health issues that we can endure, and every aspect has a different treatment. Knowing about the type of counselors is essential as it helps us to decide where to go and who to consult.
Here are a few reasons if you endure one, then it might be time to seek therapy for your health.
Persistent mood swings:
We often experience mood swings, at one point, we are all cheery and happy, and the next moment we are in a bad mood. Moods our inflicted by our thoughts process. If we have good and positive feelings, we stay in a joyful spirit; negative thinking will harm our atmosphere.
If negative thoughts persist for long, it might be a time to seek a therapist’s help to understand the root cause of the problem. Sometimes, talking aloud about what is bothering you in a confidential environment helps you to let go of the burden.
Our brain works in mysterious ways. We might be in our thirties and think of ourselves as mature and accepting people. It might leave us surprised to know that we are still not open to welcome any change in our lives. The difference can be a new job, a new house, a new family, or a wedding. We all have our insecurities and fears when we come across a significant change. Those fears and insecurities may take a toll on our emotional health and impact our lives in many ways. A therapist can help you look at the positive aspect of that change and can guide you about ways to expect it.
Women are more prone to depression and anxiety as compared to men. Most of the time, they also experience psychosomatic symptoms but are unaware of it. These symptoms are confused with the physical pain unless they see a therapist for their psychological well-being. When women talk about their issues to their loved ones or friends, they tell them to snap out of it and be healthy. This suggestion might bring them more harm than good. If you are facing such issues, you may need to see a therapist to help you explore the root cause. If it is cognitive, then they can help you change your pattern of thinking, and if it is a chemical one, you may need to see a psychiatrist.
Grief or sadness:
It is true that a woman is more expressive and feel more than a man. They get thrilled, but their ability to handle grief often takes them off the rails. The reason is that women are tender and soft when it comes to emotional attachments. Losing a loved one can leave them in a great shock. The shock of losing a loved one can be so crushing that you might need a therapist to come out of the dark hole. Therapy will create space for grief to slow done and run its course so that you can recover from it completely.
Women are always conscious of their appearance and how they look in front of others. All thanks to glorifying a specific body and facial features, which many women start feeling low about themselves. This feeling low creates lower self-esteem in women that leads to low self-confidence and negative image of self. With all these factors running around, no woman can function the way she can do with confidence. Seeking a therapist to help you overcome your inferiorities can boost the way for your personal growth and success to achieve your goals.
We all need validation and appreciation from the people around us. It is reasonable to expect so because this is how our psyche has formed. Things are only taken as abnormal when they are either in excess or deficient. Our mind is home to a lot of thoughts, grief, happiness, sadness, and anger. These feelings are normal to happen. But if we are getting a lot of negative or harmful thoughts that are creating troubles in our daily routine, we must leave the taboo of mental health aside. And seek help to recover because, without a healthy mind, a body will not remain healthy for long.
