Mental illness isn’t necessarily something dramatic and outwardly destructive to others. Mental illness is whatever leads to self-fatality. It isn’t what the culture says it is. Excess is an illness. Spiritual emptiness is an illness. Capitalism is the epicenter of illness because you can never have enough and you have to make more and it needs more of you.

Creativity comes alive in environments.
Take care of other people.
Tell yourself no.
Don’t prioritize your body over your spirit.
When you take care of your body you’re setting the standard for your mental life and other areas that access imagination. Creativity thrives in a thriving environment.
Health is what you create.
