Mental health – at times – is even more important than your physical health. You should not wait for the illness to set in before you take care of your mind. Rather you should do everything within your capacity to prevent such thing from happening. There are four most important factors that contribute to good mental health and these are as follows:

  • levels of stress,
  • quality of sleep,
  • amount of exercises, and
  • the right nutrition.
