Why is mental health important & Why you need a soulmate?

Mental health is essentially about how people think, feel and act as they face real life situations. Our mental health decides how we cope up with stress, relate with each other and make decisions. Mental health also influences the way individuals look at themselves, their lives and those who constitute their lives. 

If physical health is important, mental health is more important at every stage of life. Moreover, both of them are intrinsically connected – because a healthy mind lives in a healthy body. Mental Health Disorders are More pronounced among young people than many realize.

Many studies show that at least 1 in 5 adolescents have a mental health disorder at some time. Yet, even less than one in five of these children receive the mental health care they need. Among youth, at least 1 out of 10 has a serious emotional issue at any given time.

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has a wise slogan, ‘No health without mental health.” Unfortunately, the stigma that so often surrounds mental health, millions of people shy away from receiving the help they desperately need and overlook this monumentally prevalent health issue. In the US, as per data from National Alliance on Mental Illness, in a normal year, almost one in five, or 18.5% of American adults experience mental illness issues. 

Some of the most common and widely reported mental illnesses include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, dementia, and eating disorders. Depression is clearly the most important cause of disability worldwide and is also the most significant contributor to the disease globally , greatly impacting people and their families emotionally, physically, socially, and also financially. Mental illness doesn’t spare anyone irrespective  of their race, age, gender, ethnicity, culture or sexual orientation.

Mental illness being so prevalent worldwide, it is crucial to recognize the early warning signs. One should look out for signs such as:

#Abnormal sleeping or eating patterns.

# Generally withdrawing from people.

# Lack of energy, and a feeling of helplessness.

#Feeling lost, confused, nervous, angry, or on the edge.

# Unable to do daily chores.

# Major mood swings, and 

thoughts of self-harm.

# Increase in drug or alcohol intake.

Why do we need a soul mate?

We often think of our life partner as the one who is also our soulmate. Alas! I wish this would have been true. In reality, a soulmate and life partner are two different things. A soulmate is someone, who has a direct connection to your soul and is there by your side forever. A soulmate not only compliments you, but also completes you and makes your life awesome  than it ever was.

The level of trust between soulmates is absolute, and just the ability to trust another person on so many levels makes life so much more beautiful and exciting. You are fortunate because you no longer have to search for that true love. You are living it every moment, every day.

We all need that one very special person who truly cares for us without having a reason, because we matter for them. This is one person who accepts us for who we are without any expectation to change us or being judgmental.

Although many matching sites claim to find your soulmate, they usually fail. However, I recently saw one ad for a new social app called Connectd India, and they promised a soulmate for a date. The idea seems interesting.
