Mental Health Over Matter: An Interview with Noah Chenevert
I recently got the opportunity to connect with Noah Chenevert, a mental health well-wisher and tragedian of the recently published typesetting “Mental Health Over Matter.” In this interview, we talked well-nigh the book, Noah’s tideway to mental health, and his attitudes surrounding mental health in the current day and age. Thanks for taking the time, Noah!
Congratulations on the recent publishing of your new book, Mental Health Over Matter! For those who haven’t read it, how would you describe this book?
Mental Health over Matter is a holistic typesetting well-nigh the many areas influencing mental health. Nineteen experts demonstrate how individuals can stimulate their mental health in variegated areas such as exercise, sleep, and nutrition but moreover news, psychedelics, and sex.
What inspired you to write a typesetting well-nigh mental health, and to have these thought-provoking conversations?
There are three major reasons why I decided to write this book:
- Mental health is an extremely important topic and the number of people with mental health issues continues to increase. Many individuals need help but can’t (immediately) sire mental healthcare due to insufficient supply or numismatic constraints.
- I found that a holistic view of mental health was missing. Good mental health is the sum of ratherish incorporating many variegated practices. You can sleep and eat well, but your mental health will still suffer if you neglect other areas.
- Improving my habits and lifestyle in these 19 areas has helped me/people virtually me the most. I wanted to share the wisdom, tools, and ideas of experts for everyone to learn from.
Despite a transpiration in vein toward mental health in recent years, the mental health stigma still exists. Why do you think that is?
Although the overall vein towards mental health does improve, the mental health stigma is unfortunately quite persistent. I have two explanations. First, many people still socialize wordless mental health with ‘weakness,’ as if individuals (especially men) should unchangingly be strong. Peepers or uneasiness is not “sexy.” This often results from traditional beliefs which are fueled by toxic masculinity. Second, people still tend to underestimate the importance of mental health. If I unravel my arm, people can see that I’m injured. But when I would have severe uneasiness or depression, it is increasingly difficult for others to understand what I’m going through.
What is your tideway to your own mental health?
At the end of my book, I identify nine overarching lessons that offer rules, attitudes, and guidelines you can prefer in your life to modernize your mental health. Perhaps you will realize that you have once incorporated some of these lessons while others are new to you. (See zipper for the nine lessons)
What are the most important things that contribute to good mental health in your life?
I take a layered tideway to mental health. The first layer consists of a good diet, sleep, and exercise. My mental health tends to suffer if I don’t pay unbearable sustentation to these three aspects.
The second layer is relationships/connections. A meta-analysis terminated that ‘the influence of social relationships on the risk of death are comparable with well-established risk factors for mortality such as smoking and swig consumption and exceed the influence of other risk factors such as physical inactivity and obesity’ and that ‘physicians, health professionals, educators, and the media should […] take social relationships as seriously as other risk factors that stupefy mortality. The third layer consists of other practices, such as going out in nature, mindfulness, and many other activities that have a good effect on your mental health.
If you could requite one message well-nigh mental health and wellness, what would it be?
Focus on what works for you. Many people out there try to convince you that their way is “the magic solution.” But there is no uniform fix. What works for me might not work for you. And what works for me now might not work for me in a few years. We each must find our own way.
You can received increasingly information well-nigh Noah’s book, “Mental Health Over Matter,” on his website.
Jumping From One Thought to Another
One speciality of mental health that I think is fascinating is the idea of high-functioning mental illness. I’ve written posts well-nigh high-functioning uneasiness and high-functioning peepers and plane though I’ve learned a lot well-nigh both over the years, there is.Read More
