Good habits can lead to good mental, physical health

To the editor:

Mental health like physical health is not hard to attain if you follow some good habits. Exercise and eat three balanced meals a day and healthy snacks.

I have learned that mental health means being healthy like everyone else. You have to take care of yourself before you can help anyone else. Do you have anything that you need to take care of?

I have a brain injury that I have had since age 28, and a chemical imbalance. I take fish oil and flax seed to help my brain. I eat healthy when I can and drink a lot of water. For exercise, I walk for half an hour each day. I am presently doing back strengthening exercises.

I take a few medicines every day and vitamins. I volunteer to help others. I read good books and go to church.
