For Star Patroller and entertainment anchor Gretchen Fullido, prioritizing one’s mental health is of paramount importance.

Fullido talked about mental health in her Instagram page today, March 22, where she shared a photo while inside what appears to be a condo or hotel room.

“Prioritize your mental health,” she said. “Your mental health deserves the same care and attention as your physical health. Tending to your mental health is all about recognizing your unique needs and developing practices and habits to honor them. This can feel challenging and even selfish at first, especially if you’re not used to getting your needs met.”

She explains that looking after one’s mental health is “the antidote to stress, anxiety, depression, and burnout so it’s worth the practice and dedication.”

Fullido also feels it is just right to “ask for help when you need it.”

“When life gets difficult, it’s a common tendency to retreat, which can lead to isolation. We aren’t meant to travel through hard times alone,” she stressed. “It’s important to reach out for support from trusted loved ones and mental health practitioners.”

Aside from campaigning for mental health, Fullido is also known as an animal rights advocate, an environmentalist, a fitness buff and a certified plantita. JB
