    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    Mental health awareness during this Pandemic |

    What is mental health?

    Our emotional, psychological, and social well-being all fall under the category of mental health. It has an effect on our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Additionally, it influences how we deal with stress, interacts with people, and make decisions. Mental health is critical at all stages of life, including childhood, adolescence, and maturity.

    If you have mental health issues throughout your life, your thinking, emotions, and behaviour may be impacted. Numerous variables contribute to mental health issues, including the following:
    • Factors biological, such as DNA or brain chemistry
    • Trials in life, such as pain or abuse
    • Mental health issues run in the family

    Mental health at this moment [Pandemic COVID];

    According to a recent World Health Organization study;

    The COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted or stopped essential mental health services in 93% of nations globally. The study was carried out in 130 countries throughout WHO's six regions from June to August 2020. 
    • Over 60% reported interruptions in mental health services for vulnerable individuals, including children and adolescents (72%), older adults (70%), and women needing maternity or postnatal care (61%).
    • More than a third (35%) reported interruptions in emergency interventions, including those suffering from chronic seizures, severe drug use withdrawal syndromes, and delirium, which is often a symptom of a serious illness or injury.
    • Approximately three-quarters of respondents experienced at least some interruptions in school and workplace mental health services (78% and 75%respectively).

    The adolescent mental health 

    The COVID19 issue has evolved into a mental health catastrophe for adolescents:

    The mental health of young people (15-24 years old) has deteriorated dramatically from 2020 to 2021. Mental health problems among this age group have more than doubled in most nations.

    Young people may be able to recover as we recover from the COVID19 crisis with appropriate support and early intervention. Still, there is a risk that the effects of the COVID19 crisis may continue to throw a shadow over the lives of young people and their mental health.

    Shutdowns of educational institutions at all levels have led to social support deterioration, such as daily routines and social connections, which help develop healthy mental health. In addition, school closures have an especially negative impact on young people from poor families.

    Other than that, the impact of COVID19 on job markets proportionally affects young people. 

    It reduces opportunities for part-time work and work-based learning for students. It leaves soon-to-be graduates, and recent graduates struggle to find and keep a job, putting them at an increased risk of experiencing mental health issues throughout their lives.

    Some other studies regarding mental healthiness in adolescents:

    The study, which was conducted with 2,438 young people aged 13 to 25, between the 26th of January and the 12th of February 2021, reveals:

    • 75% of respondents felt that the current lockdown was more difficult to deal with than prior ones, with 44% saying it was much more difficult. (14% said it was simpler, while 11% thought it was the same)
    • 67% thought the epidemic would have a long-term detrimental impact on their mental health. This includes young people who had been widowed or had traumatic experiences during the epidemic, who were anxious about whether their friendships would recover, or were concerned about the loss of schooling or their chances of finding employment. (19% neither agreed nor disagreed, and 14% disagreed)
    • Although 79% of respondents agreed that after most limitations were removed, their mental health would begin to recover, others voiced concern about limits being lifted too soon and the possibility of additional lockdowns.
    Many of the young individuals they spoke, stated that their feeling profoundly worried, resuming self-harm, experiencing panic attacks, or losing drive and hope for the future due to the epidemic. 

    We know that some young people, particularly those who have been widowed or have suffered other trauma at this time, will be under a great lot of stress.

    Emotional and mental health are important since they affect your thoughts, actions, and emotions. 

    Emotional well-being may increase productivity and effectiveness in tasks such as jobs, education, or healthcare. In addition, it is critical for the strength of your relationships and allows you to adjust to life changes and overcome difficulties. Therefore, here are 5 tips for good mental health.

    5 tips for good mental health:

    1) Get plenty of sleep

    Sleep is important for both our physical and emotional well-being. Sleep aids in the regulation of the chemicals in the brain that transfer information. These chemicals play an essential role in mood and emotion regulation. For example, we may get sad or worried if we do not get enough sleep.

    2) Eat well

    Eating properly is beneficial not just to our bodies but also to our brains. Certain mineral deficiencies, such as iron and vitamin B12 deficiency, may contribute to depression. Eat a well-balanced diet. Caffeine may make you feel restless and nervous, so consider reducing or eliminating it if you're a very worried or anxious person.

    3) Manage stress

    Stress is unavoidable, but understanding what causes it and how to manage it is crucial to healthy mental health. Make a list or a timetable of your duties and concerns. Writing out your concerns and frustrations often helps you see that they are controllable. Avoid burying your head in the sand and confront your issues. If you have difficulty sleeping or wake up thinking about all of your worries, write them down and remind yourself that you can deal with them in the morning.

    4) Workout regularly

    Exercise and activity are important for mental wellness. Being active not only makes you feel good, but it increases the chemicals in your brain that make you happy. Exercising may help with fatigue, anxiety, and stress. It is also related to health. A short walk or another physical exercise may be sufficient.

    5) Connect with others

    Maintain good relations and engage in conversation whenever possible. Friendship is essential for your self-esteem as well as support when you're not feeling well.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago |

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
