So many people take proper mental health for granted. In a lot of their minds, the general idea is, “As long as I’m sane, I don’t need to worry.” The problem with that statement is the minute you’re not sane, it’s already too late to start worrying.

Of course that doesn’t mean you should start worrying about your mental health. Worrying doesn’t do you any good, and it may push you over the edge, which is not where you want to be. Instead, take precautions to keep your mind healthy and active.
