When it comes to being fit, few of us still miss considering mental health, which is the most essential thing to consider to live a healthy and fulfilled life.

This article will help you know why positive mental health is required and what changes positive mental health can bring to our lives. 

Let’s start with the basics.

What is Mental Health?

Mental health is a necessary element of health, including our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we acknowledge, feel, and act. It also helps define how we manage stress, relate to others, and make preferences. Mental health is essential at every stage of life, from childhood and juvenility through adulthood.

Poor mental health is also associated with immediate social change, stressful work circumstances, gender bias, social exclusion, unhealthy lifestyle, physical ill-health, and human rights breaches.

If you experience mental health problems throughout your life, your thought, mood, and behaviour could be affected. Many aspects are there which contribute to mental health problems, including:

  • Biological elements
  • Life incidents, such as trauma or misuse
  • Family history of mental health issues

These days mental health problems are common, but help is available. People with mental health concerns can get sounder, and many heal entirely.

How do you identify that someone is living with mental health problems?

Not sure if you or someone you know lives with mental health problems? 

Experiencing one or more of the below-mentioned feelings or behaviours can be an earlier warning sign of a problem:

  • Eating or snoozing too much or too little
  • Getting angry about small things
  • Avoiding people and usual activities
  • Experiencing low or no energy
  • Feeling inferior or worthless
  • Having unexplained discomforts
  • Feeling powerless or ineffective
  • Smoking or drinking more than usual
  • Feeling confused, absentminded, upset, worried, or nervous
  • Shouting or fighting with family and friends
  • Experiencing drastic mood swings that are affecting our relationships
  • Having endless thoughts and memories you can’t get out of your head
  • Listening to voices or believing things that are not true
  • A feeling of harming yourself or others
  • Inability to accomplish daily tasks like taking care of your children or getting to your job or school

If you or someone you know are experiencing any of them, we suggest you talk; if you are not comfortable with family, then talk to your friends and tell them about what you are feeling, and feel free to visit a counsellor/ Doctor/ Healthcare expert, don’t worry about judgment, it’s their job to help you in getting out of this mental state. 

Remember, “if we want our problem to be resolved, we have to find out the solutions and talk about them”.

What does positive mental health look like?

Optimistic/ Positive mental health allows people to:

  • Discover their full potential
  • Manage with the stresses of life
  • Work persuasively
  • Help others
  • Compliment others
  • Stay active in the present moments
  • Experience the feeling of fulfillingness

Things we can do at our end to maintain positive mental health?

These are the things that can be done at our end to maintain positive mental health:

  • Connecting with others
  • Staying positive by loving what you are doing
  • Getting physically active by doing regular workouts and taking required nutrition
  • Helping others
  • Getting enough sound sleep
  • Shuffling things around you when you feel that life has become monotonous
  • Discovering your passion could be playing the guitar, writing poems/ blogs/ stories, etc.
  • When you crave food, don’t restrict yourself.

Apart from the things mentioned above, whatever makes you feel happy, do it without guilt unless it’s illegal.

Takeaway

Mental health problems are common but can be cured; a negative mind will not let us accomplish our goals; if you experience any of the symptoms, this is the time to discuss your problem.

We wish you good luck to live a healthier and more fulfilled life!

Marburg Virus kills two people, the first cases confirmed in Ghana.

Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:

Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.

Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”

Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.

The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\

“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title

Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:

On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in  the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and  the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.

Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.

In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
