Mental health” A silent killer for all. Mental health is the level of psychological well-being or basically refers to an absence of mental illness. It is a state of mind where a person is  functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment. This is the most neglected part of a person’s life, especially for the one who is suffering from the same. 

It is important to keep a check, and to get rid of your anxiety and depression, as mentioned above a silent killer spares none.

I would like to begin with how I coped up with my mental health. Well, for a long, long time my journey is considered to be crazy, I’d always convince myself that everything is going to be alright, but deep inside I used had a harsh feeling of something horrible is going to happen. I dreaded being around not just one but being more than one person at a time. I eyed everyone like they were judging me, pitying me, or attempting to manipulate me, which helped me in no way,

Do you ever realise the feeling of getting something trapped in your chest where you are just unable to breathe and the body feels like almost shattering? It seems easy but it was hard to begin with stress and end-up being stress-free. The nights that turned into nightmares, insomnia, excessive stress, unable to breathe, seizures and what not? It’s hard to deal with things you have been unknown for so long until you actually feel them.

Then one fine day, I actually woke up to the thought of getting better by my own. I reluctantly threw the pills in the garbage. I was terrified of making things worse, but I went forward anyway. My anxiety lasted for more than a year and clearly affected how I breathed, how I thought, how I ate, how I slept, and how I talked. I was serious, tired and afraid, basically all the time. I wanted to return to my normal self, so badly and live, care-free, confident self. But I didn’t know how to shake it, and one day I wooed help from omnichannel contact centre through which a group of people present there, did change my mindset and I decided to start of with something absolutely new, like a fresh beginning. 

I used to wake up early in the morning around 6:00 am, and go for a walk, in a garden filled with fresh air trying to give me positivity and helping me overcome the thoughts I had. 

I tried everything to fix myself with:

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Deep breathing
  • Exercise
  • Spiritual healers
  • Journaling
  • Super clean diets
  • Supplements
  • Fasting
  • Prayer

When my mind processed it, I finally recognized it was the solution, I started laughing. The answer had been so obvious all along. Within less than two months, I was back to my old self. The cure for my anxiety resulted in free, fun, painless, and immediately effective.. It’s funny to look back and see how at one point of time I thought there is no solution and no cure to my mental health, but it came out so positive with the fact that “Where there is a will, there is power” My will indeed, converted me and my body to attain mental peace for the health and well-being of my body. It was not just enough, I was so dedicated to help my own self that one important thing I actually am happy for me is, I never tried drugs to overcome my anxiety, which only could make my problem worth 20 times worse than the solution itself.
