Mental health Care

Welcome !

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.

Therefore a complete sense of well being involves the journey of nurturing our physical, mental ( thoughts and emotion ), social and spiritual health.

Total mental health involves not only management of emotional issues but discovering and developing the strengths, abilities and talents which is inherent in every individual.

 

We are committed to ensure that you attain holistic health which includes physical, emotional,social and spiritual aspects.

 

“Life is difficult. This is the great truth, one of the greatest truths – it is a great truth because once we see this truth, we transcend it.”

Dr. M. Scott Peck

What does Star Wars and Lord of the Rings have in common?

 

 

star wars

What do these movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Avengers and The Chronicles of Narnia have in common?

Each of these movies tells a story of a courageous fight and triumph of good against evil.

Besides the courageous fight, I wish to highlight that there are usually a parallel story of great friendship and bonding. No one really fights alone.

The movie, Lord of the Rings trilogy tells a powerful story of friendship and comradeship to overcome the dark force, Sauron. The heart-warming friendship between the Hobbits, Frodo and Sam is a good example. Besides, there were immense support from Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas and many more from other kingdoms which came together to defeat Sauron and his armies.

Do you have a mission in life?

Do you have fellow comrades to journey with you to fulfill the mission?

A seventeenth-century English author John Donne once quoted “ no man is an island”.  Yes. we need to be independent and take responsibility for our own well being.  However, being too self-sufficient may lead us into social isolation.  Let us put aside our differences and unite for a common mission, working together to make this world a little better.

Ten things we can do during stay-at-home period in the midst of the Coronavirus ( Covid-19) Pandemic

I am a nature lover and I love the outdoor. Unfortunately and sadly, the Covid-19 Pandemic forces each one of us to enter into an unprecedented lockdown or stay at home rule. We do not have a choice but to adjust ourselves to a “new normal” during this coronavirus pandemic

For those who are feeling restless and bored during this time, let me suggest some good, healthy and fun activities at home.

The rule of thumb is stay curious to explore and learn !

Activity 1 : Spring Cleaning

Slide1

For those who were busy and had no time to clean their organized mess, now is the time!

You may start cleaning small section of your room which requires sorting out and decluttering e.g, cleaning up those messy section of the store room or the piled up old CD or DVD corner.

 

Activity 2 : Music or Dance Therapy

Slide2

Soak yourselves with your favourite music or playlist. You may start your own mini karaoke at home with your family or housemates or dance away at the living room.

How about learning a new musical instrument? Guitar, ukulele or even the piano.  Nowasyas with the internet and many good Youtube channel nowadays, learning anything has become as easy as ABC!

 

Activity 3 : Art TherapySlide3

nothing is to be feared

Drawing, colouring, hand lettering, craft work e.g. origami, cross stitch and knitting. All these are great pass times which help us get into the excitement – working on accomplishing the final product or a great art work.

ACtivity 4 : Controlled Gaming time

Playing computer or mobile phone games for a limited amount of time may be helpful for family bonding time of excitement and great laughter. I particularly enjoy both family app games called PSYCH and skribbl.io .

So, have fun !

 There are many indoor games which can improve bonding for family and friends. In my family, we enjoy playing foosball as a a family. Besides, we also play board games e.g. Scrabble, Catan, Monopoly etc. Other indoor games includes card games, Mahjong ( A chinese game using small tiles ), Win Lose or Draw or simple treasure hunt around the house

Watching a great movie, comedy or sitcom as well as reading or blogging are wonderful activities to explore too.

 

If you are adventurous and creative, try starting a Youtube channel and sharing your unique videos with the world.

This is a channel developed by my 11 year old son, a beginner.

Of course, gardening!  I have a little rose garden which I enjoy nurturing it with sunlight, water and timely fertilizer. Don’t forget the regular weeding too.

Research has shown that helping someone in need makes us happier.

During this pandemic, there are many individuals or families who are affected financially and emotionally by the lockdown. Lending a hand to those in need is certainly meaningful and will make a little difference in the lives of others.

Recently a friend of mine started a food project among her church friends. They have been praying for the those in need in their community and later initiated the food project to raise funds to deliver groceries and packed food for families who are in need.

 

 So friends, I hope you would find the above suggestions useful.

Lastly, during this Coronavirus pandemic, always remember to keep physical social distance, wash your hands frequently and try not to touch your face!
