Shownotes

Sorry I missed 2 days of episodes but I was sick and had zero energy. With that it got me thinking of this time of year and the struggles we all go through and what is important for us to stay 'balanced' and healthy.

-

You may go to the doctor to get regular physical checkups of your body, but what about your mind? Everyone deals with tough times, but even happy events like a new job, school, friends, a marriage, or a new baby can add stress.

-

How do you know when stress starts taking a toll on your mental or emotional health?

-

If you have any of these five symptoms for more than a few weeks, it may be time for a mental checkup.

-

1) Grouchiness. Are you normally a happy person but lately find yourself blowing up over small things or arguing more with friends or family?

2) Sleeplessness. Many people don’t get enough sleep, but they just assume they need to roll with it. That's not healthy.

3) Difficulty being with people. Often, the first sign of depression is when a normally social person starts avoiding people and stops interacting on social media. So if you find yourself checking out, you might want to ask yourself why.

4) Eating more or less. There are times, like holidays, where people tend to overeat. But long-term overeating or constantly reaching for foods high in fat and sugar could be a sign of stress or emotional eating.

5) Can't relax. If you’re always wound up with a racing mind, it could be a symptom of anxiety. Unlike depression that often comes and goes, anxiety can become a constant -- and easily overlooked -- part of life. People can live with it for years without noticing its ties to mental health.

-

Your health is more than just the physical and it is all tied into each other. It is important to maintain all areas of your health.
