The nasty sibling of fear and uncertainty
“Anxiety is nothing more than a socially acceptable form of mental illness” – Richard Carlson
The economies worldwide might be currently facing a slowdown with all efforts being made to inject some life force by the finance heads of nearly all the state heads but the word anxiety or depression is on a boom since quite a long time. People are easily and frequently using “depression” or “stress” as a term that can define their irritated state of mind and cause of the miserable state of personal affairs. Even school going children can be heard saying that they are having stress. Before twenty years when I was entering college, I had never heard of the term “educational psychologists” but today we have educational psychologists even in schools. This conveys a story, because the supply of treatment is only done where the demand is. Anxiety is such a hot selling buzzword these days. From people working in offices to public sector units, everyone is self proclaiming that he/she is under so much pressure and is suffering from either anxiety or depression.
The National Mental Health Survey 2015-16 , conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health & Neurosciences (NIMHANS), Bengaluru, under the purview of the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, reveals that 9.8 million teenagers in the age group 13-17 years suffer depression and other mental health disorders and are “in need of active intervention”(13). This statistic tells the story of depression hit youth of India by itself.
Overview & Preview
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking” – Marcus Aurelius
From struggling full time personally with the fear of the unknown for 15 years as a young woman, from being beaten up badly by life and circumstances in my childhood years, from having negligible friends for years I can remember, from having a disturbed childhood and teenage, from losing my mother in my own arms at a very early age, from being judged by the people around me day in and out, from being body shamed to being left alone as a punishment for being me, from being a people pleaser for years, from underestimating myself and presenting myself low key to satisfy the ego of others all the time, from becoming hopeless that life has nothing good to offer to the point where I am today, for me it has indeed been more life experiences than my actual biological age.
Amazing life changing content… overall perspective put in simple words…. A must take the session for all… Kept me glued till the last seconds!
The book offers fresh content on wholistic self care and hence the solution of everyday anxiety and stress. Wish Dr. Anshu Arya best for her future endeavors.
