Lifestyle issues

The pace of living in today's world has reached a stage where people are pressured into earning more money to keep abreast of the ever-spiralling cost of living. 

Recent findings, released by the National Institute for Mental Health, indicate that about five per cent of children suffer from bouts of anxiety and depression. This figure gradually increases with the person's age, to reach about twenty-six per cent for persons over the age of eighteen, who are affected by anxiety, depression or stress.

People are being diagnosed with more mental health problems as they mature, and this can be attributed to the pressure of day to day living in our modern society. The fast pace and the higher standards that have been set, seem to be taking a toll on people's mental health. Unfortunately, we are not content to live together in harmony, life has evolved into constant competition with our neighbours. We compete to find a job and keep it, then struggle to attain a comfortable lifestyle.

How do you know if your lifestyle is affecting your health? 

We all need to look at our current lifestyle and ask ourselves a few questions which will enrich your health and your families. Ask yourself :

  • Is your lifestyle healthy?  
  • Do you smoke, drink in excess and gamble? Do you know the health implications?
  • Do you feel "blue" on most days and have dropped interest in things you used to enjoy?
  • Are you impatient? 
  • Do you get angry quickly?
  • Do you find difficulty to take at least 15 minutes for yourself every day?
  • Do you have heart racing? 

How lifestyle issues can affect your mental health? 

What results in the mental phase when you are faced with lifestyle issues? Here are some of the potential adverse effects:

  • Your mind may slow down - Did you know that just lifestyle issues can lead to inadequate sleep which in turn can massively impact your attention span, alertness, concentration, and ability to solve problems? Those who normally find it hard to sleep could have impaired intelligence and mental development.
  • Your memory may be less optimal - While you sleep, the things you have learned and experienced during the day are thoughts to be organized or "filed" in your mind properly for future use and access. Now, if you are not getting enough sleep you would have trouble remembering what you go through today.
  • You may grow depressed - Lifestyle issues have been associated with the development of depression. According to some studies, people who regularly report lifestyle issues were five times more likely to show depression symptoms. 
  • Your happiness levels may be affected - An imbalance in the chemicals and hormones affecting mental clarity, emotions, and mood - the bigger context that makes it possible for you to be relaxed, calm, and happy.
