Life is not all about material success and career progress – they are parts of life, not the whole of life. The emotions, feelings, and complex psychological aspects of our existence are just as important, and ignoring them can lead to dissatisfaction, anxiety, and depression. You could be successful in the material sense but lagging in the spiritual, and this sort of imbalance shows heavily in your work-life balance. Mental Health Coach Jonathan Bobby Opp promotes a balanced and healthy lifestyle, encouraging people to look inward for peace and satisfaction.
Living in the 21st century is both gratifying and difficult at the same time; there are always too many things going on. We are always struggling with time management. In such a scenario, mental illness is overshadowed by more obvious and physically apparent aspects of life, leading to depression and dissatisfaction. It is no wonder mental health issues have become commonplace. Bobby suggests slowing down and nurturing the soul alongside the body to reach a nurturing balance where your body and soul are happy and content, complementing each other in a functional structure.
Bobby himself suffered from depression, drug addiction, and all that comes with substance abuse until he discovered the healing power of being alone and shutting out the noise of the industrial world. He lost his mother at the tender age of seven and went through emotionally stifling sexual abuse around the same time. These events gave rise to loneliness and depression, which only exacerbated as he grew up . To make matters worse, he fell into drug abuse and alcoholism.
The moment of truth in his life came when he lost his marriage of ten years because of his drug addiction and the related emotional chaos. Bobby decided to take control of his life and went into the wilderness to free himself from drug addiction. That was an unorthodox approach, but it worked for him. He lived off-road in an attempt to get his mind off all the unhealthy addictions. Time that he spent in the wild gave him an opportunity to ponder deeply on all that happened and the problems that simmered inside his heart and mind.
Bobby could solve a lot of unresolved trauma by making peace with his life’s tragedies and cherished moments. His emotional problems needed attention, and his trauma required acceptance and closure. Everything started to fall into place when he looked inward for peace and satisfaction instead of finding the truth outside.
Having found his own truth and realized how important it is to be alone and silent sometimes to let your soul speak to you, Bobby Opp now educates his social media followers about the importance of feeding our souls in order to live a healthy, holistic lifestyle that nurtures you deeply.
