    Teenage – the most tender age of getting a reality check of what life actually is. Ever since childhood we have been free and playful and all of a sudden burdened under the pressure of responsibilities, the load of career and finance. Where we actually get to understand that the world is not a wish granting factory. An age where the hormonal changes are at its peak and we witness the first taste of lust, love and heartbreaks. An age full of dreams and hopes. And there we witness the first face of depression and anxiety. The thoughts of failure and future risks, the thoughts of choosing between passion and money, the pressure of pursuing a subject for the sake of your parents’ dreams and fulfilment of their wishes – the thoughts of having it all and risking it all. Here we enter into the most adventurous age of our life time – the teenage.

    Well, teenage depression has been at high peaks since years. The reason behind being very clear – the thoughts mentioned above and no one to talk about it. And then there comes a phase where the child gets into drugs and smoking to get rid of their anxiousness.

    We all think about our careers and finances, life ahead for our parents and with our loved ones. However, we fail to understand that losing our self to depression is no solution to our problems.

    However, there are a few points that might help you out –

    1. Meditation – it is the most powerful way to gain back your mental peace. It not only creates a peaceful balance but also strengthens our ability to think and power to concentrate. A daily meditation of 15 – 30 minutes can easily lead us to peace and harmony.

    2. Don’t dwell on the past – as it is said, let bygones be gone. Don’t stress over emotional memories of the past. Let it go. Don’t stress over the mistakes of the past. It will lead to nothing but a great turmoil of troublesome thoughts in your head. Once you stop thinking about the memories of the past that has been haunting you – you’ll find yourself internally happy with no anxieties.

    3. The future is uncertain – the most things causing a chaos in the head is about the future. Well, its quite uncertain what it will lead you to. You can have a vision about pursuing something and you might land up into something completely different. Thinking about these uncertainties will only bring home a dozen of anxieties, nothing else. However, if you start living in the present, giving your best shot in the present will lead you to a beautiful future. Things can not be created in one day. We need to work on them and earn them. Thinking about them will not let us achieve it, working on it will surely do. Thus, instead of thinking about the future let’s work in the present for a better future.

    I hope this helps. Take care and love yourself more. You matter more than any financial gain or degree.
