It’s important to invest time in staying both mentally and physically fit.
Staying mentally fit helps us become more robust, more productive, more positive and better prepared for life’s ups and downs.
Our mental and physical health are very much interlinked. They can also fluctuate so it is important to recognise the signs of being unwell and reach out sooner rather than later. This can sometimes feel uncomfortable so the more we destigmatise talking about mental health the easier and better it becomes for everyone.
A great way to recognise the signs and help talk about your current mental health is using the Mental Health Continuum (originally developed by the Canadian Mental Health Foundation).
Let’s all learn these colours, so we can help ourselves and each other by talking in green, yellow, orange and red, as well as take appropriate action according to our fitness level. Download a version below.
