Be The Best You By Improving Your Mental Health With

By regularly working to improve your mental health, you are better equipped to analyze situations with a clear mind and less likely to experience anxiety or stress. 

This means that when you commit to self-care, you are committing to being the best version of yourself. Parents, for example, are superheroes in the way that they multitask. 

They go straight from one thing to the next, and manage both their family and professional lives. From swim practice and reading before bedtime to dentist appointments and grocery shopping, it can seem that there is not enough time in the day to get everything done, let alone relax or reflect on mental health. 

But similar to a car that never gets its oil changed or a plant that doesn’t get fertilized, mental health cannot be neglected forever. Because after a while, the car will experience engine failure, the plant will die due to a lack of necessary minerals, and people struggle to continue being the best versions of themselves. 

By neglecting your mental health, you are more prone to chronic conditions (stress, depression, etc.), which develop after constantly prioritizing someone or something else over your own mental well-being.

When you’re surrounded by responsibilities and all the exciting opportunities the world has to offer, it’s easy to forget about taking care of your mental health.  

So, despite the need for self-care being higher than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic, its importance is still being neglected by many. 

Oftentimes, busy parents don’t feel like they have the time or energy to do activities that promote mental wellness. However, the truth is, parents don’t have the time to be anything other than the best versions of themselves as much is expected of them both at work and at home. 

In the long term, taking the time to reflect on your mental health and engage in wellness activities for even just 10 minutes a day is worth it. 

Meditation, journaling, expressing gratitude, and setting aside “me time” are just a few ways one can practice positive mental health strategies that not only have the power to improve your mental well-being but your physical health as well. 

Although incorporating even small activities into your routine can be daunting, which is one of the reasons Om Swami created the OS.ME online community

Swami wanted to show busy people that self-care doesn’t have to be time-consuming and that they don’t have to start their journey towards improving their mental health alone. 

Members of the OS.ME community enjoy one of the only judgment-free spaces on the internet designed specifically for kind, positive people to come together and share their personal experiences related to self-development and mental health. 

The platform empowers members to freely write about their experiences/progress, learn from Om Swami through his vast collection of articles and video content, and engage with and seek out advice from other members. 

For busy parents, being a member of the OS.ME online community is particularly valuable. Interacting with other members keeps you accountable and you can access the platform’s knowledge library at any time of the day. Furthermore, the safe environment created allows you to focus on progress, instead of worrying about what others may say.  

Over 60% of people with underlying mental health issues don’t seek out any help. But you don’t have to be one of them. The OS.ME online community can be a key piece of your prevention or treatment plan that makes all the difference.
