Welcome to part 2 of the Mental Health Awareness mini-series of “Eat, Live, & Move with Miyagi.” In this week’s episode, we’re diving into two important aspects of your mental well-being: sleep and stress management.
Our co-hosts start by talking about how sleep connects to mental health. It’s crucial for your overall well-being, and we share some real-world stats about the cost of poor mental health and mental health disorders in Australia.
Simple tips for better sleep are shared, such as avoiding screens before bedtime, and creating a good sleep environment.
Moving on to stress – we all feel it. Our hosts, Dr. Gina and Dr. Ross, explain how chronic stress affects our bodies and minds. They share practical solutions like exercise, mindfulness, meditation, and breathwork – things you can easily do.
Please note: this mini series is general advice, and is NOT designed to replace support from health professionals such as a psychologist, counsellor or GP for guidance around medications. These support services are extremely important in the management of mental health concerns, and diagnosable conditions.
