Be Aware! Post #1

Mindfulness! It is a necessary and great concept that has been trending for a few years now and is slowly gaining in popularity. Mindfulness is not only being aware of your mental state, the state it is in, and what you can do to improve it. So if it isn’t in a great state we can recognize what may be causing it and how we can stop it. What these past few weeks have really drove home is awareness! Being aware of where you land on Keyes flourishing scale, being aware of your behavior, and what is caused by genetics and what is caused by environment. Being aware of what is depression and anxiety and your mood states. Being aware of the concepts of Positive psychology and how you can use it to help you and your mental health.

Mental health is so so important in a stressful world like today, it is as important as physical health and no ones wants to give up their dreams and ambitions because their health took a turn for the worse when all of it is avoidable!

As someone who is dealing with a mixture of stress and mental disorders I am excited to learn more techniques beyond just the easy meditations and exercises. Just being aware of what is going on in my head and not just blowing it off as my weird mind is actually opened my eyes to conditions I may have gone unaware if I was not in this class. This is just the first step, in just the four weeks I have been in this class I can tell it is helping and I am excited to tell you more about it!
