MENTAL HEALTH IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
It doesn't matter how much money you have, what your social status is, or how physically fit you are—if you don't have peace of mind, you won't be happy in the long run. Mental health and wellbeing are the key to achieving peace and joy in life, and order to do so, you should be able to understand the problems that are holding you back on a psychological level.
IGNORANCE ISN'T BLISS
The lifestyle of today is so hectic and full of pressure that most of us are susceptible to numerous mental health disorders. Over-working, under-socialising, having constant stress, having bad sleeping cycles, and more—there are a lot of factors which can lead to mental health issues and they need to be identified and addressed.
If not, these can manifest as serious issues such as addiction, depression, phobias, insomnia, and more. The biggest mistake people make is to ignore these problems. The second biggest mistake they make is misguided self-therapy.
