Mental health refers to our cognitive, behavioral, and emotional well being - it is all about how we think, feel, and behave. Mental health can affect daily life, relationships, and even physical health. Likewise, deficiencies or imbalances in biological functioning can negatively impact mental health. Sub-optimal mental health can manifest itself through common physical symptoms such as sleeping too much or too little; eating too much or too little, low energy; drug, alcohol, and/or tobacco use; inability to focus; and many more. It can also be correlated with more lasting physical illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Symptoms of inadequate mental health, major and minor alike, can have serious effects on physical performance, recovery, and well-being.
