Pray for Kate Spades daughter. Pray that she gets more than enough love from friends and family. She is the most important person after the tragic suicide of Kate Spade. Kate Spade committed suicide in her New York apartment on June 5th, 2018. She leaves behind her 13-year-old daughter, husband and a host of relatives. Kate Spade was 55. I don’t know Kate Spade or anything about Kate Spade. Mental health has been a great topic for a couple years now. Kanye West, Kate Spade, Donald Trump, Kevin Love, and a host of other celebrities have been in the news regarding mental health. Mental health is not new and has been an issue since the beginning of time. Social Media heightens the awareness of topics that have always been an issue. People are also more open about their issues with mental health than they were in the past.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:
Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry
Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse
Family history of mental health problems
Not sure if you or someone you know is living with mental health problems? Experiencing one or more of the following feelings or behaviors can be an early warning sign of a problem:
Early Warning Signs
Eating or sleeping too much or too little
Pulling away from people and usual activities
Having low or no energy
Feeling numb or like nothing matters
Having unexplained aches and pains
Feeling helpless or hopeless
Smoking, drinking, or using drugs more than usual
Feeling unusually confused, forgetful, on edge, angry, upset, worried, or scared
Yelling or fighting with family and friends
Experiencing severe mood swings that cause problems in relationships
Having persistent thoughts and memories you can't get out of your head
Hearing voices or believing things that are not true
Thinking of harming yourself or others
Inability to perform daily tasks like taking care of your kids or getting to work or school.
I have dealt with mental health issues over the course of my life, and I think we all have in life. Depression, anxiety, and many things that we think are small fall under the mental health status. My entire purpose is to help people with their mental health. You don’t have to be diagnosed with anything to have mental health issues. Negativity and being a follower can also be a mental health issue. Talk to someone to release some of that mental pressure. The person may not know that they are helping you with your issue, but that doesn’t matter when it comes to your health. Pay attention to the things that are going on in your mind. Acknowledge the bad and negative thoughts and immediately and change your train of thought. If you haven’t mastered that process, then I suggest you find someone that can be an ear for your frustrations. Medicine should always be your last result. You want to control your own thoughts and not let a drug be the controller of your thoughts and emotions. I think most of us have ability to master our thoughts and create great mental health as well.
My mental health has gotten better over the years. I first had to realize that I didn’t want negativity to be in my thoughts. I wanted to have great health. I wanted my mind to be as strong as a natural body builder. I had to have a strict diet and great exercise for my mind. My diet consists of inspiring movies, speeches, books, podcasts, people, and environment. My exercise consisted of meditation, prayer, and thought correction as well. The mental diet is the anchor of your mental health. It makes the mental exercise quite simple. The great thing is that it’s nothing like physical dieting and exercise. There is no pain involved in the exercise and the diet starts with the people and your environment. Change or adjustment the people that are in your life, and the environment that you live will make the mental dieting easy. I am here to tell you that it’s hard and a struggle at times but its worth it and you feel better. This will enhance your faith, success, and love life. You will find issues and obstacles easier to deal with as well. All will work out. If you need help call a friend, family member, life coach, or therapist.
