Before we allow our stress and other negative impact lead us to mental illness, we should find an alternative way to de-stress and relieve ourselves. Most of us will feel resist at first because we are overwhelmed by all the negative thoughts for a period. But we should lead ourselves back into the best situation and this the only way before everything is too late.
Do remember, healthy eating habit is also a way to ease your mental illness. Many of the critical illness patients are killed due to the paranoid in them, the stress in them with the sickness. When your body is healthy, we have fewer problems and less stress too!
