When not at optimum health, our bodies show signs in the form of pain or discomfort that more often than not spur us into taking remedial action. However, when it comes to the mental side of things, we often tend to ignore the signs of an unhealthy mind. Fatigue, sleeplessness, anxiety, absenteeism and stress are some common signs of mental unrest. Mentally healthy individuals are often motivated, productive and better able to cope with life and work-related stress. However, those with poor mental health have a difficult time performing even simple, day-to-day tasks.
