Vitality

Mental health is the health of ones mind. When thinking about health, people tend to think about body, condition, physical health. If you wish to be fitter, you exercise more, go to bed earlier, quit smoking and eat healthier. But did you know that taking care of your mind is at least as important? Because if you are not only feeling well, but your mental health is in good condition as well, you function better, you are more positive, you are less stressed and are better able to cope with problems (source: ggd).
