mental health issues

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.” – Fred Rogers. As per the Global Burden of Disease data by the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, around 13% of the world’s population is suffering from various mental health issues. To be precise, this is 971 million people belonging to different age groups.

Researchers claim depressed or stressed people can witness promising results with regular exercises.
  1. Distraction – Help them with some interesting distractions. It can be anything new, a new hobby, activity, or probably a tour to rejuvenate their lifestyle. Being a friend or family member, know their interests and come up with an exciting idea that they can’t resist.
