Your Mental Health Matters

Your Mental Health Matters
Mental health is just as important if not more important than our physical health.


Definition of mental health by Merriam-Webster

1: the condition of being sound mentally and emotionally that is characterized by the absence of mental illness and by adequate adjustment especially as reflected in feeling comfortable about oneself, positive feelings about others, and the ability to meet the demands of daily life

alsothe general condition of one's mental and emotional state

To briefly assess your mental health, ask yourself, "Am I at peace right now?"

Your answer may depend on your current mood, or you may say "yes" because in this moment you're reading this and can rationalize this one moment. And you may honestly be completely at peace, which is great. 

Let me ask this another way.

"Where in your life are you not at peace?"

Chances are, something popped up in your mind of what isn't at peace for you. What is the first thing you thought of? Your answer is likely an issue or a situation wearing on you or impacting you in some way. 


If nothing came up and you are genuinely feeling at peace, bravo! You are living a resilient life and likely reaping the rewards of greater mental capacity to enjoy life to its fullest. There is a lot going on around us these days to be bothered by, no doubt. And this isn't to suggest we should never be bothered by anything. Instead, when something does bring unpeace, we don't want it to linger and ruin our day, let alone our lives. 


To sustain the peaceful mind, I challenge you to ask these two simple questions of oneself each day as a mental health check. Awareness of the "what" allows you to take the next step to address the unpeace that shows up, no matter how big or small.  

For those who noticing something unpeaceful, it is always valuable to take a closer look. Regardless of the challenge or problem, downplaying what bothers us is just pushing things aside only to show up again later, sometimes bigger and more impactful until we address it. We can be masters at "shelving" things thinking they are tucked safely away believing they won't bother us as long as they are under wraps. This is not the case. Those unpeaceful things drive our thoughts, behaviors and moods.

For a closer look, ask yourself:

  • "How do I know this is a problem for me?"

  • "How is it impacting my life right now?"

  • "How long has this been going on?"

  • "How would my life be if this problem were gone?"

  • "If this situation is not resolved, what could happen?"

These few questions might help put things in perspective and help you determine if the issue needs addressing now or can wait.

Now you may be asking, "What can I do to alleviate this?"

There are many ways to support our mental health. Much like we exercise our bodies and eat well to support our physical health, we can do the same for our mental health. This includes exercise and eating nutritiously. However, there are more focused things we can do to enhance our mental health and address what causes unpeace for us.

There are many tools, techniques, modalities available to support mental health and address mental health challenges. Many of them provide some level of relief. Some are slow and take a lot of time, sometimes years to help, if even it helps at all. Some modalities may only address certain areas or work only on a surface level.

If you are looking for help with what you notice as "unpeace" in your life, life coaching can help you address this and help you find peace to lessen the grip of whatever is bothering you.

Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is therapeutic. It helps you find peace within you, without diagnosing or labeling someone as to "what's wrong." We focus on what you desire to have, be or do. For some, this may mean getting out of bed each day with a positive outlook and the energy to be productive. For others, it may mean getting out of the job that is not a fit or repairing a relationship.  And for yet others, it may mean taking control back from anger or anxiety.

Through coaching, clients gain greater self-awareness not only from new perspectives and insights but also positive inner changes as a result, such as feeling more confident and relaxed with greater self control. Feeling better about oneself also leads to better decisions and a happier life.

Utilizing personalized cutting edge tools and programs , the coach guides clients  to be able to confidently move forward towards their goals while overcoming challenges along the way, meeting the clients where they are. 

Clients experience measurable results with even one session. These sessions are either in one-hour or two-hour increments and are available virtually making it convenient for anyone's schedule, whether you are here in Michigan or somewhere else in the United States. For help addressing what brings you unpeace, contact jill@jillhaas.com to set up your 45-minute, no cost mental health clarity session, or for more information. She has worked with many people find peace even in situations where they felt they had no control to make a difference.

It is possible to find inner peace again and even more quickly than many other modalities available today, or that you may have already tried. These changes will positively impact your relationships, your health - your life! 

Bottom line, start by considering what brings you unpeace and acknowledging it. Then, choose to begin making peace with these things in your mind.  This is the key to living a peaceful life with good mental health. Your mental health matters!
