Your Emotional 5-a-day
Aussie-based Psychologist, Dr Linda Papadopoulos offers advice on keeping your mind healthy...
t amazes me how we’re happy to talk about physical health, and all agree that it’s natural for someone to feel well some days and awful on others. Yet, when it comes to mental health, we rarely talk about it and, when we do, we feel ashamed to admit that we’re not coping. However, it’s only natural to have mental highs and lows. As a psychologist, I notice how much advice is given to people to stay physically healthy, but little exists in terms of being mentally fit. We know we should be eating five portions of fruit and veggies a day, but what would our emotional five-a-day be? Here are mine—i think they’ll work for you, too.”
