Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia: these words are getting so common in our everyday life. If you yourself are not experiencing them, then your known one definitely is.
We all are so familiar with them, every second person is dealing with one of these issues and fighting every day to overcome them and still not doing anything.
I, every other day come across to people who are suffering from these issues, wants to get out of it but are not able to do anything.
Some of them try meditating but meditation during chaos in mind creates disruption instead of healing.
Then what to do?
How to deal with it?
Is there any yogasana to help them?
The answer is ‘No’. Nobody is going to help you. You need to help yourself. Yoga can only help when you are allowing it to help.
Only your efforts can help you in dealing with your own mental health.
Now, you’ll say- Ya we know that but it is not as easy as you just say.
Answer to this is- Everybody in this world goes through pain be it physical, mental or emotional, hopefully, you might not be at that bad place in mind as bad you are making it.
Pain is part of life but suffering is in our own hands. Our attitude towards situation leads through or over sufferings.
We can choose ourself whether we want to be the victim of that pain or be the victor by getting over it.
Getting over your anxiety is purely mind game.
There are three kinds of mind-
1- Shakes at everything and keeps making you mentally weak. Over thinks everything.
2-Stays cool but when something goes wrong or not appropriate according to you, stays in mind for a long time.
3-Gets hurt if something goes inappropriate but after a few minutes or in less span of time gets back to normal.
We need to train our mind for this third category and how we can do this?
According to The Bhagwad Gita, Chapter 6-
There are three rules of a happy life:
1- Be a giver, not a receiver
2- Be in a relationship without expecting anything in return, as expectation leads to heartbreak when it doesn’t meet your level.
3- Don’t fall for anticipation, stay in present.
Also one practical advice I would like to share with y’all.
Try to substitute your negative thoughts with positive ones. This activity doesn’t happen in one go, it takes time but once you set your mind according to this, things start to get smooth.
So, on this independence day let us free ourselves from the prison of our negative thoughts and try bringing positivity in our attitude and in our life.
Happy Independence Day
