Modern life is stressful, especially in cultures that reward “more”: more work, more accomplishment, more possessions, more status… and this can create a severe imbalance in your life and lead to serious health problems. Anytime you work excessive hours, overextend yourself, rely on fast food and stimulants and neglect essentials like meditation and exercise, you damage your body’s miraculous health reserves and capacity for self-healing, and contribute to a serious decline in your well-being. But this downward trend is reversible!
Within the field of mental health there has always been something of a tension between what we might accept as a natural and predictable outcome of negative circumstances and the point when this is embraced by psychiatry as symptomatic of mental illness. An example of this can be found in my Sharepost entitled ‘ Is grief a mental illness ?’ Proposed revisions to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) suggest that if the symptoms of grief extend beyond a two-week period following the loss of a loved one, a diagnosis of depression could be made. At present we regard the period following bereavement as normal grief. Fortunately, in my view at least, many objectors see the proposals as simplistic, unnecessary and silly; but this doesn't mean they won't go ahead.

It's hard to resist overworking and social-media madness, because when you do something that you absolutely love, your passion work, it doesn't feel like work.
What is mental health or emotional health? Mental or emotional health refers to your overall psychological well-being. It includes the way you feel about yourself, the quality of your relationships, and your ability to manage your feelings and deal with difficulties.
A suspicious mind is always ill-at-ease and spotting hidden meanings nobody else even considers are there. It can be a devastating way to live, viewing the world through a hyper-vigilant lens, and left unchecked, suspicious thinking can evolve into a paranoid personality disorder, a state in which you may not even think you have a "problem" but you will be aware that there is something not fulfilling about your approach to life. When unfounded suspicious behavior results in small things being blown out of proportion, your mind is in a constantly nervous state and you lose the mental energy that could be put to more productive and creative uses. Even worse is the reality that others around you at home, in the workplace, and anywhere else, can find dealing with your suspicious nature irritating and sometimes even confronting or threatening.
