Mental Health and changing your perspective by Kate Arnott

Same song, different day

‘Same song, different day’ an adage that we’ve all heard before and most likely experienced too. Waking up to the sound of the same alarm, dragging yourself out from under the comfort of your warm bed, to the coffee machine which faithfully injects you with a hit of ‘human’ before you can actually interact with another of our species.
You take the familiar route to work, greet the same people, using the same words that don’t really hold much care for how your colleague really is. By the time you finally get home, you’re numbed by the mediocrity of your same song, a tune that you keep humming to yourself without even realising it. And then you silence while you sleep, only to repeat this melody each and every day.

Ask for help

Mental health affects 1 in 5 people today. Labels have been assigned to the variety of ‘illnesses’ that people might experience throughout their lives. This is often accompanied with a level of shame, being labelled as ‘mentally unwell’. As a result, many people don’t seek treatment or help and continue living a half-life, unsatisfied, unhappy and completely unfulfilled.
Those who do succumb to treatment are often prescribed drugs which numb the symptoms of a far greater underlying issue. The root cause of the dis-ease is rarely addressed, thereby stifling the absolute potential for expansion and growth of that person.
But what if you could change your tune? What if you had the power to add some lib and lyrics to your life? Perhaps even a little dance or skip to the beat of the life force that pulsates through your healthy body. Sometimes, its really just a change of perspective that we need…

A shift in our thinking

Dr Joe Dispenza says “When feelings become the means of thinking, or if we cannot think greater than how we feel, we can never change. To change is to think greater than how we feel. To change is to act greater than the familiar feelings of the memorised self”.
Beliefs are thoughts that we keep thinking. They become hardwired into our DNA, causing imbalances with the body and mind on a physiological level. Thus, in order to fully change and embrace a new life, we must change the way we think. When we start to become aware of our thoughts, we can consciously change our behaviour. With practice and time, our internal environments start to shift, leaving us feeling more vital and prepared to deal with life’s inevitable challenges.

How can you start to change your perspective?
