We are all unique individuals, and there is no one size or style that fits all. Our physical and mental health needs, as well as our overall needs, vary greatly from person to person. As such, it is important to recognize the differences and to figure out what works best for us. We all have that one friend that either lost weight, quit eating meat, or found their health improved by an exercise program they joined. Many times, we find we want to lock them in a closet because they constantly try to get us to use their same methods. However, not all methods work for all people.
For a mental health example, a naturally joyful person may not need to rely on inspirational music to lift their spirits. They may be perfectly content with simply spending time in nature or talking with a loved one. Meanwhile, someone who struggles with negativity may find that inspirational music is exactly what they need to feel uplifted. Additionally, those who suffer from anxiety may benefit from yoga or meditation, while someone dealing with certain types of depression may benefit more from a rigorous exercise routine. Ultimately, we all have different physical and mental health needs, and finding what works best for ourselves can be a challenge, but worth it.
We all have basic needs like time with ourselves to reflect and rejuvenate, time with friends and loved ones to feel connected and appreciated, decent food, clean water, and some form of vitamin intake to maintain proper nutrition. Additionally, we all need some form of physical activity, be it walking, jogging, or even dancing, to keep our bodies healthy.
Aside from the basics, everyone’s needs are unique, and it is important to recognize what works best for you. While no one size or style fits all, we should learn to recognize the things we require to better improve our own lives, while also appreciating that others needs may differ greatly from our own. Recognizing our individuality is the start to finding what methods and routines work to improve our own overall health.
