As it is known, mental health is a significant part of our lives. It is as important as our physical health. In fact, both are correlated. If a person is struggling with depression or stress, that is going to affect his physical health in the long run and vice versa.
However, even though very important, mental health often has to take a backseat, considering how we do not make time to nurture our inner selves. We mostly prioritize our physical health by following a workout routine and maintaining a healthy diet. But what we often forget is to take care of our mental well-being.
In this podcast, Rachel Druckenmiller talks about her journey in mental wellness and how it plays a crucial role in our lives.
