Mentally Well? A Question to Ask Youself.

May Day!Am I feel mentally well?

Not many people ask themselves this question in their everyday lives.

we might, as adults, think since it has been strong enough to handle flows of information, changes in life and those either trivial or critical bits in countless moments, a self-introspection on one’s mentality should be favored as a spiritual pursuit or an exclusive episode of a lonely night. Thus we are not properly knowing what we really need and how to satisfy the need.

Instead, we might eat much to fill the void inside;May Day! (1)

No, i am not discussing a metaphysical or existential thesis here. It is just a real-life issue, pertaining your body, your perception and your lover. Mental wellness is a state of mind, and thus it is a state of body (let’s override the body/mind dualism). We should not neglect the physical signals emitted from our body,
