What is Mental Health
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. Additionally, it helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life. That is from childhood to adolescence and throughout adulthood.
Mental health is important because it can help you to cope with the stresses of life. Likewise, it can help you be physically healthy and have good relationships. It may even affect your work productivity and help you realize your full potential.
Additionally, your mental health is important because it can affect your physical health and either help prevent or promote certain health conditions and complications.
Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The United States has observed Mental Health Awareness in May since 1949. The month is observed with media, local events, and film screenings.
Mental Health Awareness Month provides a timely reminder that mental health is essential. Individuals who live with mental health issues deserve care, understanding and compassion. As well as pathways to hope, healing, recovery, and fulfillment. After all, that is what we all want and need now more than ever– for ourselves, our loved ones, our communities, and our world.
Mental Health and Kratom
While traditionally, kratom was used for mitigating physical pain, we cannot overlook kratom’s overwhelming support on non-physical distress. As such, the relationship between mental health and kratom deserves attention. Non-physical or mental distress can present itself in several different ways. These include anxiety, stress, inability to focus, and even depression. Our community continually affirms how kratom helps many not only improve their physical pain, but enhances their mood and mental health.† The bio-active alkaloids within kratom contain properties that may lessen anxious feelings. And, as such, may manage mental health related issues such as stress and focus.†
The way kratom works its way into the system is very similar to an opioid, even though kratom is not an opioid like codeine and morphine. But the effects are quite similar. The active alkaloid, mitragynine binds itself with opioid receptors thus rendering the sensation of pain relief and relief. This action might be responsible for the anti-anxiety and antidepressant-like effects as many users claim.
Endless distractions and daily pressures can build more stress, foster unhappiness and even lead to depression. If you’re trying to figure out how to handle distractions and improve your focus perhaps ETHA kratom may be the answer.
