Great Youth Well-being: What is Mind Emotional Nurturing?

What is Mind Emotional Nurturing?

Every child has a seed of greatness that they need to grow to do great things. This seed is where the child's brain, mind, and body all come together. It is an important tool that helps you get around the world, but it needs to be maintained regularly. The brain (the human control centre) houses the mind, enabling you to make sense of your life and the world around you. This is what we call mental health. Mental health problems can happen if you don't take care of your mental health or don't have the skills to do so. Mind Emotional Nurturing is actively engaging in actions and habits that help promote good mental health and emotional well-being.

It is consistently encouraging oneself, paying great attention to one's needs, and caring for one's brain, mind, and body. Nurturing your mind and emotions is a first-hand experience and a daily (moment-to-moment) practice—a MUST-HAVE life skill.

Mind-emotional nurturing is essential for every young person from childhood to adolescence and adulthood. Therefore, strong caregivers within the community MUST introduce teenagers to the part responsible for their mental well-being. This is the first step in helping them accept the responsibility and willingness to administer a 'first-aid response' in balancing and strengthening their minds and emotional state.

Mind-emotional nurturing can help teenagers develop self-awareness, belief, and resilience skills, toward having a positive outlook on life. It is an additional tool that allows teenagers to achieve the five well-being ways. The benefits are endless, and it is an ongoing process that requires intentional effort. By practising mind-emotional nurturing, teenagers can better manage and overcome what their brain S.A.I.D that is causing them;

  1. Stress, Anxiety, Insecurity, and Doubts to cope with any daily challenges;

  2. Decrease the chance of full-blown mental health issues for young ones biologically predisposed to experiencing mental health issues.

  3. Increase confidence and self-esteem and improve overall mental, emotional, physical and social well-being.

This can enable teenagers to flourish in everything they do, whether it be in academics, relationships, or personal pursuits, and have a great life.
