To lead a happy and successful life, emotional and physical well-being must be balanced. Many of our students are concerned with their physical appearance rather than their mental health. We are more likely to sustain psychological injuries than physical ones. If we ignore it, our psychological injuries will worsen and have a negative impact on our lives. Untreated psychological illnesses in student life, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction, are associated with lower CGPAs and increased chances of dropping out. Common mental health issues are hindering academic success among college students. However, the most common misconception and prejudice among students is that seeking help for emotional health is a sign of negativity and weakness. However, the likelihood of this happening is very high.
There was a time in Indian society when psychological illness was considered taboo, but thanks to recent discoveries, most of the population is now aware of the causes of psychological illness and how to treat it. The time has come to begin breaking down stereotypes and disseminating positive information in order to achieve complete mental well-being.
Professional counseling can treat common mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, suicidal tendencies, suicidal impulse, clinical depression, interpersonal relationship problems, ADHD, sleep issues, and so on. Counseling is an Emotional First Aid technique that involves attending to the psychological needs of a person who is experiencing significant psychological distress.
The main goal of psychological assistance is to help students discover, understand, and find their greatest strength to make positive life changes. We must recognize that in order to lead a successful academic life, we must accept that stress and anxiety are a natural part of life, and that stress can sometimes empower us to bring about positive change and upliftment.
However, when stress and anxiety persist for an extended period, they are harmful. Finally, here are some suggestions for living a happy life.
To adhere to time management schedules, try to study as much as possible while avoiding procrastination.
Share your thoughts with others, express your inner conflict, believe in yourself, be grateful, and finally live in the present.
