The World Health Organization defines mental health as "a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” Mental wellness leads to general productivity in life. It is a positive attribute that each individual must have to ensure proper function and efficiency. It incorporates your emotional well-being and encompasses creativity and flexibility in dealing with life's challenges. This touches on how you feel about yourself, how you hold control over your feelings, manage your relationships, and deal with your undertakings. It directly affects life's other aspects such as work performance, physical condition, and self-acceptance. Good mental health is more than being without mental health problems or being free from depression, anxiety, or other psychological issues. It is about having zest for life.
Your Mental Wellness
A state of lasting happiness or felicity is where every individual would want to be at. Exciting events may cheer you up and provide more inspiration for life, yet, it is inevitable that unwanted events may happen anytime. These become the stimuli for mood swings, sadness, or depressed state. This is when your mental health is tested. A person nurturing a good mental state and emotional stability is able to rationalize something good about the negative events in his life, able to keep his focus in troubled times, compose himself before giving a response, get his dose of lesson, get back on his feet after adversity, and do better. He is able to focus on developing a solution and maintaining the joy of living. People who are emotionally and mentally healthy have characteristics like flexibility and creativity for coping with difficult situations. Taking control over your emotions is vital for happiness regardless of good times or bad times accented by changes, frustrations, and disappointments. Mental wellness is essential for you to be able to live fully and realize your potential in all areas.
Here are common attributes for determining your state of mental and emotional well-being:
- Sense of contentment
- Sense of meaning and purpose
- Sense of self-worth
- Enthusiasm for living and trying new things
- Ability to build and maintain fulfilling relationships
- Ability to have fun
- Ability to deal with stress
- Ability to recover from adversity
- Ability to adapt to change
- Balance in life's aspects (work, rest, socialization, privacy)
- Speedy recovery from physical sickness
A mood is a relatively long lasting emotional state or a quality of feeling at a particular time. It affects your response to a given situation and also affects your physical health in return. The following categories of stimuli exert significant influence on your emotional state:
- Dispute - Arguments or disputes not only trigger rise in blood pressure but also cause changes in cellular processes inside your body that thwarts healing. Studies show that a half-hour argument can slow your body's ability to heal by at least half a day. This is due to a surge in cytokines (immune-molecules that trigger inflammation) induced by seething irritation, frustration, or dispute. Chronic high levels of cytokines are linked to arthritis, diabetes, heart-disease, and cancer.
- Jealousy - Jealousy is triggered by the suspicion of emotional betrayal, characterized by mixed feelings of fear, stress, and anger. A person extremely jealous may experience raised blood pressure, heart-rate, and adrenalin levels, anxiety, sleeplessness, and weakened immunity.
- Pressure - Being under pressure raises your cortisol levels which induces feelings of stress that feed on themselves to engender chronic stress. In the process, memory and accuracy are both impaired and blood sugar, fatty acids, and cholesterol levels rise and raise your risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
- Love - Falling in love raises levels of nerve growth factor, a hormone-like substance which helps to restore your nervous system and improve your memory by triggering the growth of new brain cells. The feeling of being loved is also associated with the feeling contentment and calmness which benefits both the body and mind. Oxytocin, also called the "bonding hormone", urges people to express loving emotions through touch and cuddling. These acts are believed to trigger the release of DHEA, an anti-aging, anti-stress hormone that triggers cellular restoration in the body. Other forms of touch, including massage, have also been found to help to promote rapid recovery from illness and injury while minimizing follow-on complications.
- Laughter - Laughter relaxes tensed muscles, reduces production of stress-causing hormones, lowers blood pressure, and helps increase oxygen absorption in the blood. Cardiologists say laughing can actually reduce the risk of heart attack by restraining unwanted stress, which destroys the protective lining of blood vessels. About 400 muscles of the body are put in motion when you laugh, thus, helping to burn calories, too. Researchers estimate that 10 to 15 minutes of laughter can burn up to 50 calories in your body equivalent to results reaped from a 10-minute aerobic workout or 15-minute session on an exercise bike.
- Crying - Emotional tears associated with stress were found to contain high levels of hormones and neurotransmitters. Releasing emotions through tears lowers blood pressure, slows down pulse rate, and induces more synchronized brain-wave patterns. Studies have concluded that the evolutionary purpose of crying is to remove stress chemicals from the body. It is believed that continued presence of these substances, when holding back tears, keeps a person in a state of tension, which makes the body vulnerable to the negative effects of anxiety such as weakened immune system, poor digestion, impaired memory and concentration. This supports the fact why women live longer than men. Women are more communicative of their thoughts and feelings, pouring out their flares in tears; while men tend to keep their grief to themselves. Women are relieved from stress by crying, men pile his burdens from within posting harmful effects to their health.
Your ability to react to this stimuli and control your mood is determined by diverse factors:
Imbalances in Neurotransmitters - Chemicals in the brain (neurotransmitters) play a large part in the occurrence of depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive worries, weight issues, inattention problems, pain, memory, anger, energy, sleeplessness, logic, motivation, association, drug abuse, and sexual issues. There are three basic molecules in the neurotransmitters, which are thought to play a role in mood regulation: norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. Imbalances (often low levels) of these chemicals contribute to occurrences of mood swings and mood disorders.
Low levels of Serotonin play a role in depression, anxiety, sleep, sexuality, appetite, obsessive worry, panic disorders, aggression, and PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome). It also affects pain-perception and could be the reason why 45 per cent of patients with depression suffer from aches and pains.
Low levels of Norepinephine may induce bipolar disorders, depression, manic high episodes, and attention problems.
Low levels of Dopamine contribute to lose of touch with reality, attention deficit issues, drug addictions, and abrupt mood changes.
Other brain chemicals that increase risk of developing mood swings when there is divergence from normal levels include GABA (leads to anxiety and some addiction issues), Acetylcholine (causes memory problems), and Histamine (causes insomnia and weight gain).
- Stress - Stress alters the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain that control mood, logic, disposition, sleep, attention, weight, and pain perception. It may be induced by situations or thoughts that create feelings of frustration, anger and anxiety, leaving an emotional and physical impact on your body. It can come from present situations such as relationship conflicts, financial worries, job stress, and from past experiences such as abuse, abandonment, and self-image issues. Stress also affects your hypothalamus which causes your pituitary gland, adrenal medulla, and adrenal cortex to release adrenaline and cortisol. Altogether, these hormones accelerate aging, decrease bone mineral density, weaken your immune system response, and even alter brain function.
- Genetics - Genetics has been found to be a strong factor in the development of mental disorders. Studies found that 90 percent of individuals with bipolar disorder also have a first-degree relative with bipolar disorder, 50 percent of individuals with major depression have a first-degree relative with the same disorder, 40 percent of individuals with obsessive compulsive disorders have a first-degree relative with the identical or related disorder, and 35 percent of individuals with attention deficit disorders have a first-degree relative with a similar disorder. Environment that is characterized by isolation and inactivity may be the triggering factor in the occurrence of mental disorders for those with a family history of such conditions.
- Drugs Side Effects - Some medications have harmful effects not only on the organs of your body but also permanently alter your brain chemistry, functioning, and emotions. Some may even make the present mental condition worse. Illegal drugs induce schizophrenic symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, and other abnormal behaviors. Addiction to these drugs may cause permanent damage to the brain.
- Medical Disease - Medical diseases invoke emotions. More often than not, having physical ailments causes insecurities, discouragement, and a sense of inferiority. Diseases such as pernicious anemia, mononucleosis, hypothyroidism, Cushing's syndrome, Addison's disease, cancer of the pancreas, multiple sclerosis, upper respiratory infection are linked to depression. Mitral value prolapse, hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, and pheochromocytoma are associated with anxiety. Alzheimer's disease, dementia, various illegal drugs such as marijuana (leads to "amotivational syndrome"), vascular disorders, viral infections of the central nervous system, Parkinson's Disease, disease of the central nervous system, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and temporal lobe epilepsy alter personalities.
Mental & Mood Disorders
There are myriad disorders of the mind that can substantially degrade your quality of life. Some of the more common disorders follow in order of severity (less to more):
- Dysthymia - Dysthymic Disorder is a chronic condition characterized by depressive symptoms occuring almost daily over a span of two years. Symptoms displayed are less severe than those that fulfill the criteria of a major depressive state. However, this mild type of depression can still cause dysfunction in several areas of your life. Symptoms include poor appetite or overeating, difficulty sleeping or oversleeping, low energy, fatigue, and feelings of hopelessness. Distress or affliction in social, occupational, or household environment is often the root cause of this disorder. In childhood, it is associated with poor school performance and inferior social interaction. Children and adolescents with Dysthymia have low self-esteem, poor social skills, and negative-thinking. It is estimated that 4 per cent of the world's population has this disorder.
- Cyclothymia - Cyclothymia is a mild form of Bipolar Disorder characterized by short periods of mild depression and hypomania (good mood). It is often manifested in a quick shift from mild or moderate depression to euphoria and excitement, but mood swings are far less severe than in bipolar disorder. Symptoms include alternating episodes of hypomania and mild depression lasting for at least 2 years characterized by frequent depressive state than euphoric. Causes of cyclothymic disorder are still unknown.
- Postpartum Depression (PPD) - PPD is a type of depression that follows childbirth. There had been some assumptions that postpartum depression is caused by lack of vitamins, but studies tend to show that more likely causes are the significant changes in a woman's hormones during pregnancy. PPD has been linked with sudden fluctuations in hormonal levels (thyroid, estrogen, and progesterone). Estrogen and progesterone rise sharply during pregnancy; after childbirth, these levels fall dramatically. Low thyroid hormone levels, in particular, can cause symptoms of depression, including irritability, loss of interest in regular activities, fatigue, and weight gain. Other factors contributing to PPD include changes in lifestyle required for new infant care, concerns about post-pregnancy weight and body image, fatigue and lack of sleep after childbirth, lack of support caring for the new baby, and worries about ability to be a good mother. Symptoms include sadness, fatigue, insomnia, appetite changes, reduced libido, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability. Historically, PPD has been diagnosed solely in women, but recent research indicates that men may be affected by the condition after their wives undergo childbirth as well. Language development delays and colic (a condition, usually in infants, characterized by incessant crying) experienced by the newborn are linked to depression in dads. Feelings of detachment and worries about facing the demands of parenting can also accompany the baby's arrival.
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) - SAD is a temporary disorder that is directly related to changes in the weather. An inexplicably fatigued feeling or restlessness arises in a person with SAD when the weather becomes colder or darker, such as during the transition to Autumn or Winter. SAD subsides without treatment when the weather reverts back to the person's preferred state. Nevertheless, SAD is often treated with light therapy or exposure to artificial sunlight. Symptoms include tiredness, fatigue, depression, crying spells, irritability, trouble concentrating, body aches, loss of sex drive, poor sleep, decreased activity level, and overeating, especially of carbohydrates, with associated weight gain. The symptoms of seasonal affective disorder typically tend to begin in the Fall each year, lasting until Spring. Studies have found that bright light changes the chemicals in the brain, which caused and triggers the occurrence of SAD. About 35,000,000 people in the world suffer from SAD.
- Depression - Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity. Some consider it a dysfunction, while others see it as an adaptive defense mechanism. About 340,000,000 people in the world suffer from depression. 1 out of 4 women has it while 1 out of 10 men suffers from it. Biological influences of depression include malnutrition, heredity, hormones, seasons, stress, illness, drug or alcohol use, neurotransmitter malfunction, long-term exposure to dampness and mold, back injury, and aerosol exposure. Long term sleep difficulties also trigger depression. Up to 90% of patients with depression are found to have sleep disorders. Recent studies also suggest that imbalance in Serotonin and Norepinephrine (neurotransmitters that allow brain cells to communicate with one another) is said to be the major physiological factor that triggers depression. Causes of Depression include unpleasant family history, pessimistic personality, trauma, stress, physical conditions, and other underlying psychological disorders. Stressful events such as loss of a loved one, marital stress, break up of a romantic relationship or divorce, job anxiety, loss of a job can jumpstart a depression episode.
- Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression) - Bipolar disorder is a biological brain disorder that results in extreme psychological and emotional mood swings. It affects all aspects of a person's life, from relationships with others to his professional standing or career. It is ordinary for normal people to go through the highs and lows of life, but those who have bipolar disorder tend to magnify and intensify these change of events in their lives. A state characterized by overexcitement is called a manic episode, while a state of extreme sadness is called a depressive episode. Aside from evident mood changes, irritability, agitation, impulsiveness, increase in goal-directed activities, restlessness, and changes in energy, activity and sleep are among the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. These often lead to suicidal thoughts. No exact cause has been identified for Bipolar Disorder but risk factors include genetics (as genes help control how the body and the brain work and grow), underlying illnesses, alcohol or substance abuse, and brain structure and functioning. Altered levels of neurotransmitters (chemicals causing reactions in the brain) can also cause extreme mood changes. 27,000,000 people in the world suffer from Bipolar Disorder. Nearly 6,000,000 American adults or about 2.5% of the adult population in the United States have it. Some famous people that have talked openly about having bipolar disorder are Anna Marie "Patty" Duke, Linda Hamilton, Jean-Claude VanDamme, Kristy McNichol, Dick Cavett, and Buzz Aldrin. World Health Organization (WHO) statistics indicate bipolar disorder is the 6th leading cause of disability in the world.
- Schizoaffective Disorder - Schizoaffective Disorder is a psychological illness in which an individual experiences episodes of schizophrenia (a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that involves detachment from reality) and intense mood swings. Symptoms include disoriented thoughts, agitated body movements, paranoia, hallucinations (non-existent voices or visions), and delusions (false beliefs that cannot be corrected by reason) combined with extreme mood changes and often severe depression. People with this disorder may also experience sleeping trouble, eating disorder, feelings of excessive tiredness, and thoughts of suicide. It is believed that genetic predisposition contributes to brain chemistry deterioration that leads to this disorder. However, interaction between genes and environment remains the catalyst for Schizoaffective Disorder and Schizophrenia. Environmental factors may include exposure to viruses, malnutrition before birth, problems during birth, and other psychosocial factors. 24,000,000 people in the world are estimated to suffer from Schizophrenia while about 8,000,000 people in the world have Schizoaffective Disorder.
Famous People with Mood Disorders
About 450,000,000 people suffer from conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, making mental and neurological illness among the top causes of all ill health. Mental disorder transcends age, society status, occupation, and financial capability. Even famous people have struggled with mood disorders. Some have lost their lives to them and others have succeeded despite their problems:
- Vincent Van Gogh - A famous painter and artist was labeled peculiar with unstable moods. He suffered from epileptic seizures. From his letters, it was concluded that his depressive states were also accompanied by manic episodes of enormous energy and great passion. Van Gogh committed suicide at age 37.
- Virginia Woolf - The British novelist, born of privilege, experienced the mood swings of bipolar disorder throughout her life. She wrote to make sense out of her mental chaos and gain control over madness. She received great care and understanding from her friends and family. She died filling her pockets with stones and walking into a nearby river. The cause of her death was qualified as suicide while having a disturbed mind.
- Isaac Newton - A famous mathematician of the 17th Century who was responsible for many scientific discoveries and who achieved wealth in later life suffered from several “nervous breakdowns”. He was known for becoming enraged with anyone who disagreed with him. Some have labeled his condition as Bipolar Disorder (an unclassified illness at that time).
- Ludwig van Beethoven - A renowned composer who had bipolar disorder. His “manic” episodes seemed to fuel his creativity. He wrote his most famous works during times of torment, loneliness, and suffering psychotic delusions. He took medication, opium, and alcohol for relief. He died of liver disease probably due to substance abuse.
- Abraham Lincoln - The 16th President of the United States suffered from severe, debilitating, and occasional suicidal depressions, as recorded by Carl Sandburg in his comprehensive six-volume biographical analysis of his life. He was determined to overcome his serious affliction and operate well in the name of duty despite his personal struggle.
- Winston Churchill - The Prime Minister of Great Britain who, as one of the “Big Three” (Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin) led the world in defeating Hitler in World War II, told in his own writings of suffering from “black dog” (Churchill’s term for severe and serious depression). He self-medicated to deal with these times. He was able to achieve much in this life and manage his mental illness by sheer personal determination.
- Linda Hamilton - A famous actress who had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder at a young age. She controlled her illness through a lifetime of medication.
- Shawn Colvin - A musician with two Grammy's suffered from major depressive disorder for more than 20 years. "During the worst times, I shut the world out, refusing to get out of bed. Even the smallest tasks were overwhelming," she said.
- Judy Collins - A singer and songwriter who wrote the book "Sanity and Grace: A Journey of Suicide, Survival and Strength". The book relates her journey as a survivor of depression after the suicide of her 33-year-old son in 1992. She states that her own spiritual life and practice gave her the power to win over the illness.
The good news is... More than 80% of people with schizophrenia can be free of relapses at the end of one year of treatment combined with family support. Up to 60% of people with depression and related disorder can recover with a proper combination of anti-depressants and therapy. There is a way to recover from poor mental health.
Western Medicine relies on aggressive and costly prescription drugs to deal with mood disorders and mental health problems. These methods generally address only the symptoms and not the underlying causes. As soon as you stop using the drugs, the problem returns! These prescription drugs often result in unwanted and even dangerous side effects including accelerating aging and increasing risks of more serious diseases.

Rasayana Chikitsa prescribes the therapeutic use of various herbal and holistic preparations for enhancing mood while strengthening the body and overall well-being. The approach is to heal the mind and body before minor emotional imbalance leads to chronic psychological problems.
India Herbs' Rasayana Chikitsa doctors combine a proprietary herbal formula based on centuries' old wisdom with advice on diet, exercise, mental training, and relaxation to help you reach your peak and overcome emotional tribulations through safe, natural means.
You can optimize your long-term mental health by:
1) Reversing Damage - Years of stressful living caused damage to your body. To help reverse this, Cosmic Joy releases hundreds of phytonutrients that act at the molecular level to soothe your nervous system, restore proper brain function, and prevent mental deterioration.
2) Getting Healthy Sleep - Lack of sleep results in feelings of irritability and body weakening. This is in proportion to how much you allowed your body to rest and heal itself overnight. Sleep deprivation raises risks of inability to concentrate and memory problems. Your sleep quantity and quality has direct relation to changes in the balance of major neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, melatonin and others. Relearning good sleep habits accompanied by relaxation techniques comprise a good therapy for depression. Start by going to bed and getting up the same time each day. People who enjoy 7 or more hours of sleep per night are more likely to experience excellent mood the next day. 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 hours of sleep per night is recommended for both children and adults.
3) Increasing Omega-3 Fatty Acids Intake - Omega-3 fatty acids help to facilitate growth and maintenance of your brain cells, especially cell membranes. The human brain is 60 percent fat and its neurotransmitters move more easily through fat membranes composed of Omega-3 fats. Higher omega-3 content ensures optimal neurotransmitter communication. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish also elevate your Serotonin levels resulting in a relaxed state of mind. Studies of patients taking medication for major depression have found that 1 to 2 grams a day of omega-3 led to a measurable reduction in symptoms. Good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids include nuts, salmon, mackarel, and tuna. At least 1 gram is recommended daily.
4) Increasing Vitamin B Intake - Vitamin B is required for proper neurotransmitter function. It stimulates brain action and help to regulate the nervous system and control mood swings. About one third of people with depression have folic acid (a type of Vitamin B) deficiency, leading to low serotonin levels in the brain. Vitamin B6 deficiency induces feelings of being depressed and anxious. Depression is also linked to deficiency in thiamin (Vitamin B1) and Vitamin B12, which when untreated can lead to irreversible nerve damage. Vitamin B can be found in liver, meat, poultry, fish, wheat, oatmeal, and whole brown rice.
5) Increasing Tryptophan Intake - Tryptophan is an essential amino acid (a building block of protein that the body can't make) and precursor for serotonin production. It is helpful for regulating sleep, calming frayed nerves, facilitating weight loss and appetite control, enhancing mood, and increasing pain tolerance. Good sources of Tryptophan include mangos, bananas, chocolate, oats, milk, and cottage cheese. 200 milligrams of Tryptophan is recommended daily.
6) Increasing Healthy Carbohydrate Intake - Healthy Carbohydrates are necessary for serotonin production. A low-carb diet may bring about irritability and impatience because the brain needs a constant supply of blood sugar to function well. Depression sufferers tend to have low blood sugar. Healthy carbohydrates can be found in beans, potatoes and root vegetables, winter squash, fresh fruits, and whole grains. Eating 5 to 6 smaller meals, each with at least 15 grams of carbohydrates (the amount found in a medium apple or pear) is recommended.
7) Avoiding Simple Carbohydrates - Simple Carbs (carbohydrate food made from white sugar, white flour, white rice) rapidly increase insulin production which can lead to a depressed state of mind and irritability. Excessive intake of Simple Carbs can also cause weight gain, headaches, and feelings of guilt and sadness. They also exacerbate hormonal problems in women such as PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome) and menopause, leading to more pronounced imbalances.
8) Avoiding Alcohol Intake - Alcohol and drugs can slow or prevent recovery from depression. They can even aggravate feelings of hopelessness, unhappiness, and other negative emotions. Alcohol lowers the serotonin and norepinephrine levels in your brain, magnifies the effects of stress hormones, wipes out every vitamin in your system, and speeds the elimination of antioxidants in your blood.
9) Maintaining Proper Body Posture - The body systems and the mind are integrated. Your posture influences muscle tension throughout your body and in turn affects your brain's reactions to stimuli. Muscles tighten due to feelings of stress. Muscular tension contributes to mood and emotional reaction by becoming or remaining contracted. Muscles are more relaxed when lying down, leading to brain activity that instructs a calming reaction to a given situation. Also, sitting slumped is associated with lower work-related self-confidence versus sitting straight. Proper posture when standing, sitting, or lying down allows better circulation inside the body.
10) Exercising Regularly - Exercise works as well or even better than antidepressants. Incorporating exercise into your everyday routine will uplift you emotionally while improving your general health; this accelerates recovery from depression. Brisk walking and other cardiovascular exercises are excellent for improving your heart rate and elevating production of endorphins - natural pain medication hormones that help you feel better and improve your mood.
11) Being Optimistic - Learn to magnify positive thoughts and kill the negative thoughts before they accumulate and bring you to a depressed mood. Switch your bad thoughts to upbeat and uplifting thoughts. Maintain a daily record of each switch from negative to positive thought. Strive to decrease the number of times you need to switch until you are able to develop positive perspectives in all your dealings from the start.
