When is the last time you went to the doctor’s office? Maybe you had a sore throat. Or, maybe you just had to go for a checkup. There are many reasons to visit the doctor, of which determines which doctor you go to your general physician, the eye doctor, or urgent care.
Mental health care is much the same way. You might be feeling down and fatigued. Or, you might go just to check in with your provider. And you might work with a counselor, a therapist, a psychologist, a life coach, a psychiatrist—or several of these professionals, but for different reasons!
Here’s the thing: We need to start treating our mental health the way we treat our physical health. It is just as important, but for some reason, many of us put much more time and energy into maintaining our physical health. You can take one big step toward prioritizing your mental and emotional health by checking in with yourself—start now but do so regularly. Think about the following questions:
- “What area(s) of life could benefit from some changes?”
- “Is there an area of my life that could obviously use some improvements?”
- “Am I happy in my relationships? Are these healthy relationships?”
- “Do I feel personally and professionally fulfilled?”
- “What would I rate my life on a scale of 1-10 in terms of happiness and success?”
These questions can help you better understand your mental well-being today and where it could be in a few days or weeks. They can also help you identify areas of your life that a counselor or another mental health professional could help you improve.
If you do take notice of some improvements that you could make—or, on the other hand, a serious problem that is taking a toll on your mental wellbeing and overall life, we want you to know that we’re here for you. Thriveworks Counseling Frederick is here and we can help you right now. Just call our office to schedule an appointment.
