The coronavirus pandemic has made us realize that staying inside our home for a very long period can be very exhausting. If you are able to work from home, then you are still able to distract yourself from all the anxiety for a bigger part of the day. However, you might feel stressed when you constantly hear the increasing number of coronavirus cases and the fatality rate in the news. Besides being worried about your health and the health of your dear ones, you must also be worried about getting essentials like medicines and grocery. With so many things to worry about, here’s Certified Fitness & Nutrition Consultant Ms. Pritma Bhushan will explain what you can do to take care of your mental health

#MentalHealth..Motivation, Will-power, Determination or Self-control…aren’t these wonderful words we always come across in our fitness journey? From where do they come ?

The answer is simple ! It comes from within ourselves, our mind. Then, shouldn’t we be paying more attention to train our mind then our body, which anyways controls our body?

“The joining of the lower human nature (Body) to the higher (Mind) in such a manner as the higher can direct the lower is yog”.

If our body is controlled by your mind, one can achieve whatever one want, but if it’s the opposite then it can lead to poor health and steal away the peace of mind.

Among all the four dimensions of human life, i.e., mind, body, the external world and the inner realm, the mind is the most powerful and when it controls other dimensions, the life becomes more beautiful.

We can improve our mental health by the following:

1. Wake up before sunrise.

2. Have lots of water. H2O supplies oxygen to the mind.

3. Practice Pranayama: Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites our body to our thoughts.

4. Engage yourself in what you enjoy: Be it any sports, music, art or anything. A depressed mind can never have a fit body.

5. Always be in present: If you are working out in the gym, try to focus on that particular muscle, concentrate on what you are doing at that moment, engage your mind with that muscle. While eating your food, relish the taste, concentrate on it’s nutritional value.

6. What is possible or not possible is none of our business. Focus on your goals and the actions to get to them, results shall follow.

7. Gratitude: Be grateful for what you have. To be alive, to be able to earn your living, have food at your table, having someone to love or whatever. We can be happy for anything & everything that we have. We are our only competitor. Make sure you are better than what you were yesterday.

Love your body, don’t spoil it and keep working to make it better if you actually love it.

“One who controls his mind, find fulfilment and internal bliss which is beyond the pale senses and reasoning” :Bhagwad Gita
