Psychologists point to worsening mental health in networks

  • According to Statista, it is estimated that 1.26% of the population in Mexico suffers from some mental health problem or condition in 2020.

Psychologist Rafael Arias has made a video viral on social networks through his Tik Tok account in which he talks about identifying deteriorating mental health in people.

According to what the psychologist has commented, the first thing that can be observed is the decline in interpersonal relationships, due to which you may have to be patient to relate to certain people or issues around you.

Furthermore, experts point out that as your mental health deteriorates, your tolerance for frustration will decrease as well as your patience. It is worth noting that according to the comments made by the psychologist, above all, the feeling of irritability will be high.

The psychologist mentions that not only will you be able to identify these changes in your mental health, but people around you will also notice these changes. That said, things will start to cost you more work during the process of mental health deterioration.

Activities that were easy for you before may now take longer and require more effort. This will make you feel like you can’t keep up with everything.

Tips to take care of your mental health

According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), when it comes to your mental health, self-care can help you manage stress, reduce your risk of illness, and increase your energy level. Even a few small acts of spending a little time for yourself in daily life can make a big impact.

Here are some tips to help you start your care:

  • Exercise regularly.

Just 30 minutes of walking a day can help improve your mood and health. If you can’t do 30 minutes in one sitting, don’t be discouraged! Do small amounts of exercise throughout the day and they will add up.

A balanced diet and plenty of water can increase your energy level and alertness throughout the day. Also, limit your intake of caffeinated beverages such as soda or coffee.

  • Give importance to sleep.

Set a schedule and make sure you get enough sleep. Blue light emitted from various devices and screens can make it more difficult to fall asleep. So reduce your exposure to blue light from your phone or computer before going to sleep.

  • Try practicing a relaxing activity.

Explore various relaxation or wellness mobile apps or programs that may include meditation, muscle relaxation, or breathing exercises. Schedule a regular time for these and other healthy activities, such as writing in a journal.

  • Set goals and priorities.

Decide what needs to be done now and what can wait. Learn to say “no” to new tasks if you feel like you’re taking on too much. Try to focus on what you have accomplished at the end of the day rather than what you have not been able to do.
