Statistics show that millennials, especially between the age of 21-36 start to suffer through a host of problems. These problems range from major disorders to substance abuse disorder to hypertensions and much more. While millennials are considered to belong to the therapy generation, there are two side effects of it. Firstly, due to mental stress- both anxiety and depression are skyrocketing for this generation, while on the other hand; it is also the first generation to actually de stigmatize mental health disorders. In this article, we would be taking a look at the best ways to combat them:
Express your feelings
As we get busy in our lives, it is important to have someone with whom you can share your feelings with. Try finding a confidante who can really help you understand what you are going through. Do not bottle them up as it will only increase your stress and worries.
Stay active and eat well
We also recommend you to stay active and pick up a workout that you like on a regular basis. Additionally, you should also eat well so that your health gets the nourishment it needs. Getting into a habit like binging on junk during a low time in life will make you feel worse and unaccomplished. At least aim at reducing processed foods and eating healthy so you stay happy.
Keep taking regular breaks
While we are all used to our weekends for relaxing, it is ideal to take some time off when you have over stressed yourself. Since this is not the ideal option in the current scenario, picking up hobbies that interest you can also help you stay happy and healthy.
Try understanding your mental health and seek help
While as a generation, millennials are seeking more awareness for their mental health, there are still hold backs. Many of us tend to live in denial before a complete burn out. Try visiting a therapist so as to stay updated with your health and what’s the best that can be done in order to ensure that no problem becomes huge to control later on! Additionally, meditating well and following proper nutrition and lifestyle guidelines can also help you stay fit.
What helps is that we are pretty much the first generation to understand about mental health actively. This can include online therapy, talk therapy or much more. We are also highly likely to speak about our issues to parents, friends, co-workers! With more celebrities such as Prince Harry, Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga openly talking about these problems on social media; a lot of positive hope lies for us. Additionally, diet and other measures can surely help millennials keep up with their hectic schedules. Loneliness, workplace tiredness, strive to constantly gain perfectionism can be met with perfectly if one knows how their body works and what can be done! Our experts will surely help you mould a lifestyle that is unique to you based on your genetic make-up, which can help you keep up with surrounding challenges.
