Can mental health damage affect your daily life?

Many residents of Iowa may find themselves thinking strictly of physical injury when they think of health issues or damage. However, your mental state and wellbeing can have just as much of an impact on your overall quality of life.

How much of an impact, you ask? Quite a heavy one. Stress and depression in particular can have a massive effect on every aspect of your life. MentalHelp states that mental health issues can even have an impact on your physical health. Stress, anxiety, depression, and a number of other disorders or ailments can actually weaken your immune system, making you more susceptible to disease.

These issues can affect your ability to sleep or eat regularly. Not being able to keep up with the basic needs of the human body can impact your performance at work, your overall mood and personality, and your ability to get things done. You may experience physical changes like weight loss or gain, an increase in breakouts, or other issues that can stem from high levels of stress.

It's even possible for some mental disorders or mental health issues to spawn other mental health issues, or to go hand-in-hand with other problems. For example, if you have post-traumatic stress disorder, you could also find yourself suffering from depression or anxiety stemming from it.

In order to be happy, healthy, and functional, you need to take care of yourself on every level. It could benefit you to treat injury to your mind as seriously as you would treat it if it was happening to your physical body.
