Year 2020 has been an unprecedented year full of changes and uncertainty brought about by COVID-19 pandemic around the world. This takes a toll on many individual’s mental health as we start to worry about our jobs, savings, spendings etc. Does this strike a chord with you?
Worries and sadness are part and parcel of our lives as we face changes in our lives, as we battle illnesses and deal with the loss of our loved ones etc. How we deal with these worries and sadness are crucial. Are we able to pull ourselves out of the quicksand quickly? Or are we sinking deeper into the quicksand of depression and anxiety? Prolonged sadness will progress into depression while constant worrying can cause anxiety.
World Mental Health Day falls on 10th October every year. As we hope to bring awareness for good mental health amidst rising stress factors, we would like to introduce meditation to you.
The benefits of meditation are numerous and good mental health is just one of the by-effects of meditation. Meditation denotes being in a state of thoughtless awareness.
