If so, read more to get started today..

Prioritize Your Self-Care

Your mental health should always be a top priority. Self-care activities such as meditation, journaling, taking baths, and going on walks, will do wonders for your mind. This allows you to practice positive self-talk and focus on building healthy habits that nurture your mental health. Every day, take time for yourself to relax and reflect on your day. Make it a goal to set aside at least fifteen minutes for self-care activities. Spend this time allowing your body and mind to relax. Take this time to focus on positive thoughts, gratitude, and good self-talk. You can also use this time to identify unhealthy habits that may be causing your stress and develop new, healthier habits. Self-care is essential for managing mental health, and setting aside dedicated time to focus on it will make you stronger.

Eliminate Toxic Relationships

Surround yourself with people who encourage, motivate, and bring out the best in you. Let go of anyone who only adds negativity or chaos to your life. Being able to do this takes courage and strength, but ultimately it can be freeing and liberating. It can be hard to step away from people in your life that don’t make you feel good about yourself or help you become a better person, but sometimes it’s necessary for personal growth. Surrounding yourself with people who believe in you and can motivate you to become your best self; can help you accomplish great things. Ditch those negative people who only bring chaos and negativity and embrace those who help lift you up. The freedom you feel from no longer being weighed down by toxic relationships will help make your journey to self-fulfillment that much easier.

Practice Gratitude

When you start focusing on the positive aspects of your life, it shifts your attention away from stress, worry, and unhappiness. Every morning, take the time to write down a few things that you’re grateful for and end the day doing the same. Every morning, wake up with a sense of purpose and the determination to make the most of the day. To get the day started right, focus your energy on being thankful and recognizing the things that your grateful for. Today, I’m grateful for the cozy bed that allowed me to have a good night’s sleep, the opportunity to have a job that pays the bills, the love and support from my family and friends, the time I get to spend enjoying nature and life, and the strength I find within myself to be my best. Having the understanding of being kind to others and acknowledge difference.. Writing down these positive thoughts and reflecting on them at the end of the day allows me to appreciate all the good in my life and reminds me to stay positive, despite whatever challenges I may be facing. Each day incorporating positive gratitude in your day will offer enrichment in no time. Gratitude can be contiguous, when you welcome the positive energy. Well that flow of energy radiates more positive.

Do Something that Inspires You

We all have something that lights a spark in us and encourages our creativity. For some people, it’s drawing or writing, for others, it’s playing music or woodworking. Doing something that fuels your passion can have a profound effect on your mental health and happiness.

I just love sitting down to write a story or even create something beautiful with crafts. Writing has always been my go-to for a creative outlet, it helps me express my feelings, express myself in ways I couldn’t in other situations. There’s something therapeutic about having your words form something tangible. When it comes to crafting I always try to create something that looks professional and the best thing is, it doesn’t always have to be a specific outcome, you can let the creativity lead you in whatever direction you want to go. Taking the time to craft or write lets me forget all of my worries and enjoy the process of creating something that I’m passionate about. Doing something that inspires me always fills my soul with joy and creativity, so no matter what, it’s important to take the time to do what makes you feel fulfilled.

Show Compassion for Yourself and Others

This doesn’t just mean showing others kindness, but learning how to be compassionate towards yourself as well. When you do something wrong, be forgiving, patient, and understanding. No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. understand that the greatest form of compassion is that which we give to ourselves. We can easily be our own biggest critics, which is why it’s so important to be forgiving, understanding and kind to ourselves when we make mistakes. We are not perfect and no matter how hard we try, it’s almost inevitable that at some point in our lives, we will fail or slip up in some way. This is part of the beauty and complexity of life – we have the ability to grow, learn and become better people by recognizing our errors and allowing ourselves the opportunity to pick ourselves up and try again. In addition, learning to extend that same kindness and compassion to others is a great way to enrich your own life. Compassion for other people allows us to form deeper and more meaningful connections with those around us, which can make all the difference in our everyday lives. This doesn’t necessarily mean to turn a blind eye when someone else is in the wrong, but rather, be compassionate in how we communicate and be willing to listen and learn. Being compassionate towards ourselves and others can have a profoundly positive impact on our lives. We should always be mindful of the way we think, act and speak and try to apply a sense of kindness and understanding in our daily lives. By showing ourselves and others compassion and forgiveness, we are giving ourselves the opportunity to form meaningful relationships, practice self-care and create more harmony in our lives. Understanding the power of kindness and its ability to impact the way we interact with ourselves and with those around us can go a long way in improving our overall mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

Focus on one or two of these tips, applying them daily and don’t be hard on yourself. Practice these as often as you like, before you know it it becomes part of who you are.

What are you waiting for? Start applying these five tips to your daily life and your on your way to happiness. It’s such a wonderful journey creating a life of happiness and mental well-being. All you need to do is prioritize your self-care, be aware of toxic relationships, practice gratitude, engage in activities that inspire you, and show compassion to yourself and others. If you take these things seriously, the results will speak for themselves.

My Story My Version: The Ride, the Drive, and in Park.

Oh the ride through life. . . And my fortune cookie (3/16/2023) reads:

🦋🍀💞💖 (This should always be your mindset- overcome the battle win in life, being your best inspiration to others). In the positive way, overcome negative energy, with a smile, walk away and come back, in your positive resolve to win). Positive feels amazing). .🍀💞💖🦋

This is true to my character. As in My Story My Version: The Ride, the Drive, and in Park, this is my viewpoint to the world (Life) we use as our roadmap, (gps if you will.)..

The Ride

The Ride, sit in the passenger seat and as you ride through life, taking in the scenery. We are collecting all the information along the way. It’s peaceful and educational, it’s the beating and the praise that life offers us. For learning, experience, and the knowledge that makes us fail or successful. Sometimes the ride isn’t enough, so we must push for a driver to teach, guide and help us gain insight. It’s a privilege to ride, it’s a honor to ride, but our driver must influence life skills to help us not hurt us. Meaning reach good intentions and steer us from bad habits/tendencies. (You get it!) We gathering tools to make good life decisions, we explore and experience the pain, tears, and bruttle truth. We share love, joy, happiness, and compassion. The experience that guides us in life, emotional, mental, and physical awareness tools. Without these experiences we are limited to our personal growth. Development to be your best self is incomplete. Our developmental growth should never stop unless medically determined. Knowledge is a continual need to live. Just as we need water to live, something’s we can not live without.. I know everyday I’m searching for knowledge (our personal storage of wisdom) 😁 to breath and live life. The Ride is our blessing to be understanding, knowledgeable, and awareness of being good people by nature. Take in the scenery, learn and educate yourself every chance you get. It’s best if practiced daily💞 make it routine, it increases your value to life. 🦋

The Drive

The Drive is the tools applied to our life. What we are doing? Where we are going? How we are doing? And Why we are doing? It’s the purpose of who we are. The tools are used to get us through this roadmap of life. And hopefully the gps takes us to paradise one day. The fact is your belief on your terms. Mine is the Road to paradise to meet my God and praise the glory of his eternal life he has made for me or (us). Our drive is the motivation that determines our abilities to live life to it’s full potential. Be kind, be helpful, be creative, be dedicated, be honest, be hard-working, be the best you can be here on earth. What you didn’t accomplish today, tomorrow will determine your eligibility to continue your ride, drive, and park. It’s not promised, but your legacy is being documented. Your drive is here for others to remember, leave your mark with positive writing, energy, and time. Remember we are crowded here on earth, our legacy can be replaced very quickly. Think about that? Kind of a scary thought, that I did nothing with my time on earth. “Forgotten is invisible to the world” – I believe I matter more than those words. I want to help others see and be the happiness that our God foresee’s. In hopes that happiness is within my soul, shit, pain is the least need or want in my path. If all possible I will detour the road with positive energy embracing the experiences as needed to grow and learn. To enable and produce negative in my life is blocked for construction if all possible. To avoid negative, a road closure will help me fix the problem with understanding and knowledge so the road can reopen with a positive outcome. Don’t you believe you have value to life here on earth? You matter, your time is important. Fix the negative with positive energy. One thing I use as needed, when a negative energy is presented. Example: a negative person, to use kindness is a reflection of my character. If someone feels a certain negative way, that’s their inner character. To embrace positive is not in their ride, the scenery has influenced that ride. I can’t ride with them. But at the moment I can drive the positive to them. If they catch that knowledge with the experience. Then the ride can change the scenery. And hopefully when in park, the influence changed the ride. It’s the ride you choose. I can offer the ride and the park to educate your drive. But I can’t drive that route of negative. Sorry, my road trip has a detour for that ride. Just think about your road trip, it’s your choice to influence the trip. Are you gassing up for a remarkable drive to leave a positive impression..? I know, I’m trying my best 😁🦋

In Park

And finally in Park. . . We are at our thinking and our reflection in our minds and body. Actions, behavior, words, awareness, understanding and mindset We reflect how we are presented. How was your day? Was it a lazy day? That’s okay! In Park is the position in life that reflects our needs, desires, and drive. Thoughts push us in time to drive our purpose. Was it a busy productive day? The physical beating on your body but the feeling of accomplishment? How impressive, great job! No matter what your day presented, your reflection is a stepping stone. A stepping stone that represents you. What your drive determines is what, where, how, and why are life’s drive of understanding, knowledge and purpose. In park is the time to see, feel, and express cultivate your inner drive. You are checking the maintenance of your mind, body, and soul purpose. The- What’s next? What can I do to make my life positive, more for filling to my own being?

What is true happiness? All those questions are answered in Park. Our true being is found, determined, and that is Life’s happiness. Happiness is an awesome feeling. Happiness is healthy. Happiness and Love is the ride, drive and in park – purpose to Life and guide/direction to paradise. Love and let Love!!

As I have share the meaning of human life – purpose. The Ride, Drive and in Park, we can take one promise away from this blog post. A promise of learning, learning to be your best person. First for yourself to be happy- and we all know happiness feels wonderful. Second, is for others, inspire and influence positive energy. If your unsure where to start, I have a blog post for that.. ( will update soon with a link to help improve positive energy). But let me warn you it’s contagious😁 and final… .. 🍀💖

Finally, you don’t have to impress anyone. The trip is yours to enjoy and be blessed. You have to impress your final appraiser. And that judgement day is your will. Your belief and your final destination. Now, with that being said, like I said before, if paradise is my final destination – I’m going to enjoy this road trip with positive energy in hopes to have a big smile on my face when I reach – PARADISE🍀💖🦋

Life is full of the good, bad and ugly. As I know we all had the blessings of love,peace, and happiness- those negative influences have put us through “HELL”! 🍀The battle may be fierce but so is your resolve to win.🍀 My battle has made me stronger, wiser, and aware of who I am. With that being said, I worked to damn hard to go to “Hell” and burn all my valuable work! 💞💖 So I be damned, if I’m giving in to give my hard work, determination, and happiness to the Devil. Not today, Satan👹 – Resolve to win 💕💖🦋

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Much love and many blessings. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

Breaking Down Popular Mental Health Search Terms: An Overview of Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Stress, and Suicide

Depression and Anxiety
Photo by Suzy Hazelwood on

It’s no surprise that mental health has become a popular search topic in recent years as more information has become available on the topic. Mental health is a major concern for many people, and as more information becomes available, it’s becoming easier to learn more about it. A recent study revealed the top five mental health searched topics: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, stress, and suicide. Each of these topics can bring about a range of feelings, behaviors, and struggles for those dealing with them, but there are a few key points that should be noted about each one. Let’s take a look at each topic in-depth.

The high number of searches on depression and anxiety likely reflects the fact that these two disorders are the most commonly diagnosed mental health conditions. They’re also often accompanied by stress, making it an important factor in understanding mental health.

Depression and Anxiety

People struggling with depression or anxiety may have difficulty focusing, become isolated from family and friends, or be unable to hold down a job. When it comes to depression and anxiety, these two mental health conditions are the most commonly diagnosed in people. They can present with a range of symptoms, from difficulty focusing to becoming isolated from friends and family. However, when dealt with early on and with the proper care and treatment, depression and anxiety can be managed.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is another popularly searched mental health topic, and the amount of searches is due to the complexities of the condition. It’s characterized by extreme highs and lows in mood and energy, which can lead to unstable relationships, high risk-taking, and sudden shifts in decision making. Bipolar is difficult to balance with unpredictable highs and lows. Often times other mental health issues are present as well Treatment for bipolar disorder usually includes therapy and medications.


Stress is a common symptom of many mental health disorders, but it can also occur as a stand-alone condition. It can manifest as physical, emotional, or behavioral changes that often leads to tension, restlessness, and insomnia. People struggling with stress can benefit from therapy and stress management techniques, such as mindfulness and relaxation exercises.


Finally, suicide is a particularly difficult topic to search and think about, yet it remains one of the most searched mental health topics. This could be attributed to the high rates of suicide around the world, and the lack of understanding surrounding this issue. The truth is that everyone is at risk of suicide and it is important to be aware of warning signs. Knowing where to get help and being a part of a supportive community are key steps in preventing suicide.

Ultimately, these are just a few of the most popular mental health searched topics and the complexities that can accompany them. It is clear that there is still much work to be done to destigmatize mental health and make it easier for people to access quality help. It is also important to keep in mind that you don’t have to struggle alone – with the right support and treatment, it is possible to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. Be mindful of those around you, life is precious. You are important you matter. Love yourself with patience and value.

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Take care of yourself.. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

From painting and stenciling to puzzles and hobbies, these creative outlets can help you relax and let go of all your troubles. Whether you’re new to crafting or an experienced creator, I’ve got a few ideas that can help you take a break and enjoy a bit of light-hearted fun. To start, try a creative painting activity. Gather your favorite paints and some large pieces of paper, then draw, paint, and have a laugh as you recreate classic paintings with your own silly additions. A pair of bunny ears on Mona Lisa’s portrait, for instance, is guaranteed to give your family and friends a good chuckle.

Word puzzles, crayon and coloring books and hobbies can also offer up some much-needed humor. Even if you discover that painting, crafts aren’t for you – hobbies are discovered when your open-minded to possibilities. Buy some crayon and coloring books paint markers. Assemble model cars, collect baseball cards, there is unlimited interest when it comes to hobbies.

Make your crosswords unique by using wacky word associations, and laugh at the confusion it may cause. In the same vein, set aside time for your favorite hobby and find ways to incorporate a little bit of fun into it. If you’re an avid cyclist, why not ride around the neighborhood on a bike with a special seat just for your favorite stuffed animal? Getting active can also help inspire a light-hearted attitude. Whether you take up running, biking, or walking, spend a few moments letting go of all your troubles and admiring your surroundings.

In your spare time, take up some light-hearted activities like sports with a funny twist. Balloon soccer is always a hit! When we aren’t feeling ourselves, it’s time to find a way to lift our spirits. Actually just taking a walk outside on a nice day can enhance your moods intensity. These simple ideas are guaranteed to help bring a little bit of humor and inspiration into your life.

The Monologue of the Inner Voice: Who Is Listening?

We have all heard of the voice in our heads that speaks to us – we often refer to this voice as the crazy voice or that of a psycho. In different ways we can refer to the monologue voice. This inner voice actually has a name and purpose. So what is the inner monologue voice and why do we hear it? The inner monologue is our subconscious talking to us and giving us messages about ourselves and the world around us. This is often seen as a way of connecting to our deeper consciousness and giving us insight into ourselves. It helps us to form opinions and gives us insight into our emotions and feelings. Do all people have the monologue voice in their heads? Not necessarily – some people don’t necessarily have this inner dialogue. The reason why some don’t hear it, could be because they have blocked it out, either consciously or unconsciously, due to trauma or painful experiences. It can be said that this inner monologue is an important part of self-awareness and understanding who we are as people. By allowing ourselves to be more open and connected to this inner dialogue, we can get to know ourselves better and make better decisions about our life choices.

Guidance – just listen

So next time you find yourself caught in the endless thoughts of your mind, take some time to pay attention and really listen to what your inner monologue has to say. It can help you discover a greater knowledge and understanding of yourself.

Have you ever had an inner voice that suddenly comments on something you are thinking or doing? Many people believe that this voice is the product of being a “crazy person,” but what if there is more to this inner dialogue? This monologue of the inner voice is, in essence, our own self-awareness. We may not all have the same thoughts that race through our head, but they all ultimately come from a part of our psyche that recognizes who we are. This inner voice is how we observe and reflect on our lives and our decisions. But why do some people have an inner monologue that is so active and vibrant while others appear to have little to none? Is it psychological or something else entirely? It could be a mixture of factors. Our brains can be complex and varied, which means our thoughts and perceptions can differ widely from one another. People with certain mental illnesses, such as anxiety and depression, may have heightened inner monologues. Others may have a slower inner monologue or none at all, possibly due to a more balanced psychological makeup. There is also a direct connection between the inner voice and our psychology.

Our inner monologue has the ability to both construct and tear down our thought process. If we focus on positive things, then our inner monologue will reflect that in how we view the world around us. Conversely, if we think negatively, then the inner voice will start to give us self-destructive thoughts. The inner monologue is a powerful tool for understanding who we are and our relationship to our inner self. Learning to take control of it and managing it is a huge step forward in terms of emotional and mental health. Learning how to quiet our inner voice and focusing on more positive aspects can be life-changing, both in how we think and how we interact with the world around us. Understanding our inner voice and learning how to listen to it can give us the insight and understanding of ourselves that is essential in living our best life. So take a few moments to listen and see what your inner monologue has to tell you.

My inner monologue can often feel overwhelming. On one hand, it is the voice of my intuition, guiding me in my choices. But on the other hand, it is like a running commentary that doesn’t ever turn off. The volume and intensity of the monologue depends on the psychological and emotional makeup of the individual. Some have very vivid, active inner monologues, while others may have less. But in both cases, this inner voice can be incredibly informative, providing insight into our thought processes, our lives, and ourselves. The inner monologue also can shape our thoughts and emotions in a profound way. Our thought patterns, behavior, and attitude all develop as a direct result of this ongoing dialogue between our inner self and our conscious thoughts. Negative thought patterns can cause us to believe untrue things about ourselves and fuel negative thinking, while positive thinking can keep our mind in a healthy and constructive state. This is why managing and learning how to control our inner voice is an essential step in cultivating good mental and emotional health. The voice of our inner self should not be ignored, but should be listened to and respected. There is power and strength in recognizing our inner thoughts, and taking steps to quiet the monologue, if only for a few moments. Doing this allows us to observe, reflect, and think on our lives with a clear and balanced head. It is when we take time to listen to our inner monologue, without judgement, that we gain insight into who we truly are, and we open ourselves to the possibility of understanding ourselves and our place in the world in a deeper way. Being capable of endless possibilities we can only gain positive results if we are fully invested to our inner voice. Are you listening? It’s okay it’s your inner voice… It’s not crazy, it real guidance, right there always.

Three Objects can’t live without

What are three objects you couldn’t live without?

Most of us wouldn’t get very far in life without our car, our phone, and our money. These three objects are essential for our modern day lives, providing us with essential tools for success and stability.

Having a reliable car is necessary for most people in order to get to work and travel for pleasure. It gives us freedom to move and explore the world, opening us up to more opportunities and experiences. It is more than an object – it’s a vehicle of possibility.

Our phone keeps us connected and gives us access to endless sources of information and entertainment. It helps us stay in touch with our loved ones, work, and community. It is more than just an object – it’s a lifeline.

Money helps us make ends meet, allowing us to buy essential necessities and other items we may desire. It allows us to make financial investments and grow our wealth, helping us achieve financial stability. It is more than an object – it’s a symbol of success.

At the end of the day, it is clear that our car, phone, and money are all essential objects to help us succeed and thrive in today’s world. They are more than just items – they are catalysts of progress.

Remember, When?

Mental Health
Photo by meo on

It’s not easy aging, how often do you forget little common things? As we age, many things cross our minds regarding health, finances, and what the future will be. It’s normal to be scared as we age. It can actually get very scary when your mind slowly to progressively declines. Left in a world that changed so quickly, due to faded memory. Not remembering recent events, or people you spent a lifetime with, you become aggressive because it’s a deep concern. In this post, we will look more into the mind. If you’d like to understand the memory loss, then read more.

One of the most devastating mental concern I’d have to say would be dementia. Dementia is an umbrella term for various degenerative brain diseases that cause progressive deterioration of a person’s memory and cognitive abilities. While it is typically associated with older adults, it can affect people of any age. As the disease progresses, individuals may experience difficulty recognizing family members and friends, misplace things, and struggle to keep up with daily activities such as bathing and cooking. Unfortunately, it can also lead to emotional changes such as irritability, aggression, anxiety, and depression. The cognitive decline associated with dementia can be especially hard on loved ones, who must cope with watching someone they care about forget who they are. Your loved one needs to know they are safe and will be taken care of.

In these cases, it is important to keep engaging with the individual and not become overwhelmed with their struggles. Role-play can be a beneficial activity for strengthening the connection between people with dementia and their family members, particularly if the individual no longer knows who the family members are. It can be heartfelt when a loved one calls you by another name. Just take a deep breath and enjoy the bonding, let your loved one engage in activity that may help remember time. This can involve participating in everyday activities such as shopping, baking, and telling stories together. Through role-play, family members can help create positive, meaningful experiences for their loved ones, no matter their stage of dementia. As hard as it is, dementia does not discriminate. One thing that’s hard to accept is the mind is so powerful and dementia – wins overtime.

If they could only remember, when? Or who? Or why? These questions can leave a loved one confused often to even being disoriented. Dementia progresses differently with each individual, in varies ways. Interaction is important to help slow the stages of dementia. As dementia stages progress many changes take place.

Dementia can also cause individuals to become irritable and mean, and this behavior can be a source of stress and confusion for those who know and care about the person. When it is necessary, it can be helpful to gently redirect them towards other activities to reduce the agitation, while providing support and reassurance.

Additionally, it is important to recognize that dementia can affect people in many different ways and the challenges it poses can vary significantly between individuals. Finding ways to keep communicating and creating new memories with your loved one is one of the best ways to deal with these challenges.

Cognitive decline can cause dementia by reducing the overall efficiency and ability of the brain to process and store information. This may include short-term memory issues, difficulty making decisions, difficulty speaking and understanding, difficulty with activities of daily living, difficulty in understanding and interpreting language, and difficulty recognizing people or things. Over time, this can lead to changes in behavior and further mental health issues, and may eventually lead to dementia. Living with dementia can be difficult, both for the person affected and for their family and friends. As such, it is important for everyone involved to be supportive and to create an environment in which the person can receive help and support. With early diagnosis and proper treatment, the progression of dementia can often be slowed down and managed.

Have you ever wondered if there’s a cure for dementia? It’s an incredibly sad and complex illness, with no single cause or solution. However, advances in the field of psychology have brought us one step closer to unlocking the mystery of dementia. There’s no one-size-fits-all cure for dementia, as every case is different. That’s why psychologists are focusing on tailored treatments that aim to improve the quality of life for those living with the condition. From environmental stimulation and lifestyle changes to medications and cognitive training, a holistic approach to treatment is often recommended. For example, research has found that ‘talking therapies’ such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be helpful in addressing behavioral problems caused by dementia. CBT aims to provide cognitive, behavioral, and emotional guidance to individuals with dementia in order to help them adjust to their condition and live as happily as possible. On a physical level, medications such as cholinesterase inhibitors are being used to help boost levels of neurotransmitters in the brain, aiding in cognitive functions.

Let’s take a dementia can be an extremely challenging condition for sufferers and their loved ones. However, thanks to psychological research and advances in treatment, we can be hopeful for a better understanding of dementia in the future. We still don’t know if a cure for dementia exists, but with more research, we can take steps towards a better quality of life for those affected by it. With modern research and medicine, maybe in the near future a cure is found.

Until then, when our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

Increase in Mental Health – Leaves Us Distant

It’s no secret that mental health issues are on the rise. With the COVID-19 pandemic, anxiety, depression, OCD, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and dementia have all increased dramatically. So what or why caused this rise in mental health issues? A major contributing factor to the increase in mental health issues has been the impact of social media, social distancing, and lack of real-world engagement. We’ve become so accustomed to living our lives online, behind screens, that we are becoming detached from real-life interaction and learning. This form of isolation has taken away the sense of connection and interpersonal skills needed to navigate life’s most complex situations.

The history of manual labor and physical strength was not just to build homes or bridges, but also to build relationships, help with problem solving and establish critical thinking skills. Manual labor connected people in the same ways as today’s technology; the hands on aspect enabled conversations, friendship, teaching and learning from each other in order to work effectively. Having the physical health required to build mental stability went hand in hand. Effectively in history, life skills were interactions face to face, hands on, and stepping stone to mental health stability. Technology has it’s upsides, and the flipsides. Due to the rise of social media, as well as technology, this style of communication is quickly declining. As a result, mental health is taking a toll from this “I’m too busy on my phone to talk to you” mentality, and instead of people leaning on each other and learning essential life skills, they are turning to virtual solutions to these issues.

The younger generations in particular are learning life skills more from their peers through social media instead of having real-life, face-to-face experiences that build skills such as empathy and interpersonal communication. Over a course of time, physical involvement has faded leaving a struggling impact on future generations. In a world where survival is critical in every aspect mentally, physically, and financially. As parents, caregivers, or teachers lacking stability of life skills, challenges the quality of a child’s congitive development. The impact of social media and a lack of real-life engagements has caused what can be considered a “lazy” form of knowledge. It’s impacting our ability to problem solve, think outside the box, and feel motivated to reach our goals. This kind of mentality, when not managed well, can result in mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. The impact leaves us scratching our heads. Simply because life skills and values don’t seem important or essential to future generations.

My friends, there’s two resources to be “rich” in life : the first is knowledge.. one fact is, there is no price on the power of the mind. Your potential of life skills; knowledge and education can not be taken away from you. Congratulations! It’s yours for as long as you maintain the quality. We all know there are two keys to achieving success in life – knowledge and hard work. You might think that a thousand-dollar Iphone 14 is beautiful, but can it really secure a bright future for you? We all know that money isn’t everything in life. There’s no price tag on knowledge and having an open, eager mind to continue to learn and better yourself is worth much more in the long run. Learning valuable life skills, gaining an education and tapping into your own potential will always be available to you. You don’t need to pay a penny for it, but rather, dedicate your time and energy to unlocking these natural talents within yourself. Money may buy material things and make your life a little bit easier, but when it comes down to it, knowledge and your commitment to the quality of work are far more important for securing a prosperous future. Make sure you make time for education and invest in building your own skills, that way you can be sure of your future no matter what happens.

And number two: hard work, physical and mental abilities. Once we were told that it was creative, thinking outside the box can be a key to future success. This couldn’t stand true anymore in a struggling world. Hard work comes with life skills of experience. Our gains if experience is through interactions with others. A connection to the minds of knowledge and experience. In which wisdom is gained for growth and development. Over time COVID 19 has impacted the connection with others. “Social Distancing” as we know it.

This form of ‘social distancing’ has a large impact on mental health due to the lack of knowledge, skills and overall connection between individuals. Rather than taking the time to learn essential life skills like communication, problem-solving, or thinking outside the box, we are turning to our peers for advice on these topics. Unfortunately, this shift in communication has resulted in what some may describe as ‘lazy thinking’, which greatly impacts motivation and progress. If we hope to break this cycle of increased mental health issues, we must turn to our trusted institutions, whether it be government, healthcare, or even educational, to help support and offer resources to those affected by these issues. Mental health should be an important priority, especially during these difficult times. As individuals, we should also take the time to look out for one another, lend a helping hand and engage in meaningful conversations whenever we can. With collective action, together, we can make a positive impact.

So what’s the solution?

While it’s important to remember that social media is a great tool that can keep us connected to the outside world, it’s essential to practice real-life engagement and learning life skills. Setting aside screen time and reaching out to those around you will go a long way to reducing the impact of mental health issues in today’s world. So, take the time to rekindle the old ways and physical communication, engage in meaningful conversations, help those around you with their mental health, and work together to form a stronger bond and better understand each other. The power of relationships is what helps to sustain mental health in the long run, so put your phone down, lend a helping hand and create meaningful connections.
