According to Paul Drago, taking care of your mental health is where your wellness journey should start. Balancing your attention between your physical and mental health is critical in your overall health and wellness.
Wellness is a mindset. How you feel, both physically and mentally, begins with how you think. In Dr. Paul Drago’s professional opinion — as well as his own experiences in life! — maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires a balance of caring for both physical and mental health. When you are physically healthy, you feel good — and that can make you feel better mentally, too. It’s important to take care of our mental health, because when we don’t, our physical health can suffer. Unfortunately, too many people neglect to care for their mental health, which can cause an array of problems in their lives. That’s why Dr. Drago is passionate about reminding people that taking care of mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health.
What is Self-Care?
Breathe… Pause… Recenter.
But what exactly is ‘self-care’ anyway? Dr. Paul Drago explains that it’s more than just a trend of the moment. Self-care is a practice that should be of long term importance. Self-care can mean anything from setting aside time to do something you enjoy or giving yourself a moment to pause… breathe… and recenter. Never forget that your personal health relies most on your own well-being. Take time to care for yourself every single day to be the best ‘you’ you can be!
