What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health As I See It: May is Mental Health Month

This is a paragraph I took from the County Newsletter.  I think it is a good explanation of the importance of mental health and wellness.

May is Mental Health Matters Month
Wellness is essential to living a full and productive life. It is about more than just the absence of
disease and involves complete general, mental and social well-being. Whatever our situation, we
are all at risk of stress given the demands of daily life and the challenges it brings—at home, at
work and in life. Steps that build and maintain well-being and help us achieve wellness involve a
balanced diet, regular exercise, enough sleep, a sense of self-worth, development of coping skills
that promote resiliency, emotional awareness, and connections to family, friends and community.
You can also take stock of your well-being through regular mental health checkups and screenings,
just like you would to check your blood pressure or get cancer screenings. During Mental Health
Month support early identification, prevention and intervention efforts.
