Recently, we skilled every other tragic occasion: a mass stabbing at a Pittsburg-region high college. Just one week prior it became yet another mass capturing at Fort Hood. And before that an extended line of devastating and preventable tragedies of the sort which can be reputedly becoming greater, not unusual by means of the day. The Navy Yard, Aurora, Newtown, Virginia Tech, Columbine: once names that absolutely introduced to thoughts placid places throughout our great country that, sadly now, conjure devastating reminiscences of unspeakable heartbreak.
In the midst of all of this, a countrywide communicate has once more all started to emerge. It’s one which, given the questionable intellectual balance of a wonderful some of the shooters in these activities, entails discussions revolving around our country’s attitudes and policies regarding intellectual fitness.
~ Are we doing enough to deal with the mentally sick?

~ How are we able to maintain guns out of the fingers of these with histories of mental instability?
And so on…
But here is a question I’ve yet to listen: “What can we do to save you mental illness to start with?”
Seems logical. And certainly, if we have been managing a pandemic of flu, weight problems, or some other physical malady, prevention would be at the pinnacle of this list. But surprisingly, our culture’s attitudes and conduct touching on mental fitness differ drastically from the ones in the direction of bodily health.
In the area of the physical, it’s universally diagnosed (albeit not always practiced), that in case you need a wholesome body, you have to do preventative maintenance: brush your tooth, consume moderately healthful meals, exercising, get sufficient rest. Day in and time out we interact in a number of chores designed to help enhance the well-being and toughness of our bodily selves.
In other phrases, we keep in mind that bodily fitness is a precursor to physical fitness. Yet, in subjects concerning our mental and emotional selves, we discover an exclusive story.
