Mental health: Why it's important to have a mental health day to improve it?

What is mental health? 

It is a state of "well-being" in which a person finds a balance between physical, emotional, psychological, and social health. It influences the way we think, act, and the way to handle the good and bad events we face daily. 

In general, many of us do not dedicate a day to improving our mental health, and we have many excuses, but the reality is that we do not do it because we do not understand what benefits it brings. 

Good care for our mental health helps us release stress, stop burnout, and increase productivity and creativity. 

It also helps prevent anxiety and depression problems. It helps to lead a satisfying life with good relationships. 

And to have better management of complicated situations that arise in life.
