    A much discussed subject these days is on mental health. And it’s so very important to talk and spread awareness about it. One can never really progress if he / she is not mentally fit. Mentally healthy includes being both emotionally stable and acting with mindfulness. However, depression, anxiety and stress are never invited by will, it just happens due to overthinking, overstressing over something, burdened under loads of work, lacking a healthy lifestyle etc. Thus there are numerous possibilities on how a person loses his mental fitness. Here are some points that might help you regain your mental stability.

    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. Forgive and forget – keeping a grudge will do no good to you. Let it go!! Holding on to your anger will make it impossible for you to find inner peace. It will only harm you. Let go of the anger, forgive and forget – not for the other person but for your inner peace.

    4. Yoga – spending time with oneself and not thinking about any other stuff is an ordeal. However, spending time with oneself doing yoga will strengthen your emotional status of mind. Yoga not only cures the body but the mind as well. Most of the therapists ask their patients to perform yoga on a daily basis.

    These were a few points that can help you maintain or regain your mental peace. Cultivate your thoughts and actions with an effort that helps you remain peaceful. Let go off the worries and troubles of the past or future. Live in the present. Help yourself heal from within. Take a walk. Spend some time with yourself. Do something that your heart enjoys. Praise the beauty of nature. Your peace of mind depends on you.

    Stay safe

    I hope this helps.
