With the new year, our focus is on the future of study or work and our own everyday life. What does that everyday life look like? Stress, anxiety and excitement or enthusiasm, joy, and hope? Or something in between?

Everyday life, which looks like us, is the most important foundation of our wellbeing. How smooth and balanced everyday life is affects on our how we consider our everyday wellbeing to be. Everyday doesn't have to be a boring drill or a struggle that takes strength. Everyday life can be meaningful and look like you - feeling good comes from a life which looks like you.

Each of us can make our daily lives pleasing to ourselves, even with small actions and changes. You should start by thinking about what you need to be able to do well, as realised needs will increase your wellbeing.

It’s important to think about what I need to feel good. What works well for me in everyday life? Where can I get strength? Thus, at the beginning of the year, it is a good time to stop by these questions and direct everyday life towards a life that looks like your own.

Read more about identifying your own needs and building meaningful everyday life from our Learn Life Skills site.

When you are well, you are better able to pay attention to those close to you and ask them the important question, “How are you?”.

Students’ mental health is in a state of emergency

The mental illness of higher education students has increased sharply. The proportion of people experiencing mental health problems is now more than 50 per cent, according to the results of The Finnish Student Health and Wellbeing Survey (KOTT) conducted by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

Read more about the results of the study on THL's website.

County election and mental health

Will there be a therapy guarantee? Are low-threshold mental health services available? Are student welfare services easily available as local services? Does your area invest in mental health?

The county election will decide on all the above and many other issues related to mental health.

So, it is worth voting for! Please, give your vote for mental health too!
