Welcome back to another jam packed episode of Halo Drop. Today in the ‘what’s keeping everyone refreshed and reset section’, we’re talking about mental health burnout, and how to stay sane. Quite literally, what works for us to bring us back into ourselves when the stress levels are rising.
“We have two lives. And the second begins when we realize we only have one.”
From going for walks, to following the 10/10 rule, finding your anchor is key to relieving stress. And the reason we might want to relieve stress? We spend over $1 trillion on healthcare annually. Just knowing that’s enough to make you want to think about preventative medicine, right?
There’s a wealth of tech available to help you live a more healthy life, such as a continuous glucose monitor that tells you whether your diet is healthy. And then there are the alternative medicine companies in the health and wellness space, dealing with the surge in mental health cases that have emerged with the ongoing pandemic.
“Alternative medicines exist everywhere in the world. These can be everything from vitamins and supplements, to acupuncture, to specific kinds of massages, you know, really trying to augment what normal health would be.”
From the app that delivers customized self help and provides digital therapy, to the clinic providing online chat support and call sessions, to the startup that’s created AI chatbots for mental health. We discuss the places you might want to turn to, outside of standard healthcare.
