Mental wellbeing describes our mental state at any point in time. How we are coping with everyday life and generally how we are feeling. As we all know this ebbs and flows depending on any number of factors, be that the change in seasons, tiredness, workload and relationships to name but a few.
A positive mental state encourages us to: feel engaged with the world around us, to live and work productively, to strike up new relationships and maintain older ones and generally be able to express a range of emotions. Furthermore, it supports confidence and a general feeling of positivity and self-esteem, allowing us to be flexible and cope with changing circumstances and uncertainty.
Everyone is different and as in life, what influences and impacts one person does not necessarily translate to another. However, what we can be certain of, is that the majority, if not all, of us have had times where we feel stressed, anxious, upset, or find it difficult to cope.
Here we at TheBoldAge have curated (and will continue to add to) several articles and resources that may provide some useful help and guidance on this important topic.
