‘Not all Wounds are Visible’ but all wounds can be felt. Mental Illness is one of those health phenomena which cannot be seen but felt and is very harmful. Feeling sad, problems with sleeping, excessive fears, mood changes, isolating from people are the wounds which can lead to severe Mental Illness if not cured.

A study reported in WHO, conducted for the NCMH (National Care Of Medical Health), states that at least 6.5 per cent of the Indian population suffers from some form of serious mental disorder. Prevention of this has now become crucial for all of us. We should be taking good care of our mental health; this can be done by including following things in our lives-


Yoga is considered to be an effective tool for reducing stress. It helps you build your sense of self. Through yoga, you get to know yourself and cultivate a more non-judgmental relationship with yourself.


The risk of mental illness increases at higher rate if low-quality diet or what we call the Western diet is consumed compared to those who ingest a high-quality, whole-foods diet. Nutritious diet isn’t just good for body; it’s good for brain too. What you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood. Many of the people consult Dieticians to deal with anxiety. Hence, good- food is essential for good health.


Reaching out to someone whom you trust and sharing your thoughts with them is the best tonic if you are feeling low. Holding onto your thoughts often leads to over thinking and anxiety. Whenever you are confused or sad, share your thoughts with your ‘go to’ person. If you are not comfortable sharing; pen it down. Writing your negative thoughts can help put them into perspective or validate your feelings.


The most effective way to focus on your health and well-being is rejuvenating yourself. Take a holiday from your routine life, re-energize yourself and reduce the stress. One of the best ways of rejuvenating yourself and improving your mental health is a spa and wellness treatment.
