The most important thing you can do to keep yourself calm and sane is to think about your mental health, say researchers.
The researchers, from the University of Sydney, said the key was to look at how the brain processes information in a situation that may be stressful or triggering.
“Our brains are very good at detecting stress, and when that stress is happening around us, our brain can make an emotional connection to that stress, which could be a trigger for anxiety or depression,” Associate Professor Scott Raine said.
“This is the way we make sense of it and how our brains understand the world.” “
He said it was important to remember the connection between what you do and what you feel is important to you. “

While it was well known that a healthy lifestyle had positive health benefits, there was a lot of misunderstanding around what was good for your mental wellbeing, Professor Raine explained.
For example, a lot people are afraid of social anxiety, he said.
It was also important to know if you had anxiety and if you were feeling anxious, he added.
You might also want to consider your family history and stress levels, so you could seek professional advice if you or someone you know is feeling depressed or anxious, Professor Scott said.
Professor Raine and his colleagues used data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the National Health and Medical Research Council to identify the 10 most common reasons people were depressed or feeling anxious in Australia.
Among them were being bullied, feeling anxious around other people, experiencing feelings of hopelessness, being stressed or being angry, and feeling stressed or angry in relation to the work environment.
The researchers then used a computer-based model of the brain to analyse the brain waves of people experiencing each of these types of situations.
They found that the most common cause of depression in Australian adults was an inability to cope with stress, the researchers said.
They found people with lower levels of stress were also more likely than those with higher levels to experience depression.
“We found that those with low stress, low levels of anxiety, and lower levels the emotional connections to the stressors were linked to depression,” Professor Rile said.
“This suggests that the more you are stressed, the more likely you are to experience negative emotional responses.”
The study also found that stress levels were linked with anxiety.
Professor Scott said the research showed that stress was important and could be very difficult to manage, but that there was hope for people to improve their mental health.
He suggested people should make a plan for what they do and how they do it, and consider whether they might need support to cope in the future.
