Social anxiety can be difficult to identify in little kids: Where does natural shyness end and social anxiety begin? When should you seek professional help for your child?
Mental health issues are a crucial aspect that is massively ignored by society. Until recent times with the advent of social media people are being more open about their traumas and issues. More people are coming out with their issues of mental trauma depression and others. Prioritising mental health is as important as physical health.
One of the most delicate times in childhood is when your child starts developing a sense of self. Children go from an environment where they were often unconditionally loved and sheltered by their parents where looks had little importance. They then have to move to primary and secondary school when they eventually start realising the importance of looks in society. This is usually when children start facing concerns about their appearance.
One of the most underrated facts in the world at the moment is mental health, given the fast-paced digitisation. A well off mental state helps in the development of the strength to cope with the difficulties in life. This also helps them become responsible adults. The biggest challenge that working parents face nowadays is the lack of time to spend with their kids. This is a major reason for mental health issues at an immature age.
When was the last time you had a full-night, sweet and, sound sleep, where you felt refreshed and energetic after waking up? If you would ask me, it was a dream for me to get a peaceful sleep. Whenever I woke up, I always felt so exhausted as if I ran ten miles or did super tiring work while I was asleep.
Life is hard and at times it gets even harder. We try to get out of the maze but we keep on curling in the spirals of uncertainty. We are surrounded by so many people and their success stories that it really becomes difficult to cope up with our own life and we start imagining ourselves as a failure.
As social distancing and the lockdown continues I have been interested to see what others have turned to in order to pass the time. Distract themselves from the situation etc. Everyone is dealing the prolonged time at home differently. For some they are coping quite well, some are struggling and some are floating between the two, having a mixture of good and bad days.
From the time you announce your pregnancy to literally every stage of your little one’s growth and progress, you’ll find yourself surrounded by advice-givers and those who criticise or question every single thing that you do. Motherhood is a tough job as it is, and when you’re criticised by those around you, things can get even more difficult for you, especially mentally.
Is your teen able to cope with the burden of school deadlines, packed schedules and activity-laden evenings? Even as adults we are exhausted and sometimes unaware of the toll stress in our lives. By maintaining a regular self-care routine we will have to be ready. So we need to teach our teenagers, as parents, how to incorporate self-care practices into their lives
Writing your feelings down can help get negative or sad thoughts out of your mind. This is something that many people are aware of. If you suffer from any mental illness, you know that journaling is an excellent way to help minimise your depression or anxiety and stress. What if I told you that blogging can improve your mental health too? It’s true!
