As exciting as it may look, Leadership can be one of the most stressful jobs you can take up as a person. The responsibilities that come with being a leader are never easy; whether as the head of a multinational organization, or as a leader to a small group, or even just by leading yourself. It is never an easy one.
The everyday responsibilities that come with being a leader can be so demanding and overwhelming sometimes, that leaders become so immersed in everyday problem solving activities that they forget about prioritizing their health, let alone, their mental health. Speaking of your mental health, you can not overlook the importance of your mental health as a leader, especially considering the neurological changes that come with most of these heavy tasks (physical, emotional, psychological).
A good mental health will help you maintain your inner stability, recover quickly from stress, give you a clearer mind, and boost your working morale. That is why you must constantly be aware of the prime need to always prioritize your mental health. It will help you as the leader, your organization, and the people you work with.
