World Mental Health Day this year has arrived amid Corona chaos, i.e. on 10 October, when our lives have completely changed. These past months have brought in several challenges for employed natives, healthcare workers etc. who are always surrounded by the risk of contracting the virus or unknowingly bringing it back home. Such situations have led to people suffering from high stress levels, anxiety, insomnia, and in some cases, depression due to extreme social isolation. Nearly 70% of doctor visits and 80% of serious illness are possibly associated with stress. That is why it is imperative to give your mental health top priority. On this note, let us know how to kill this covert enemy with some helpful steps to help yourself.

Bhagavad Gita : God’s Way To Cope Up With Stress
ध्यायतो विषयान्पुंस: संगस्तेषूपजायते ।
संगात्संजायते काम: कामात्क्रोधोऽभिजायते ।।62।।
dhyāyato viṣayānpuṃsa: saṃgasteṣūpajāyate ।
saṃgātsaṃjāyate kāma: kāmātkrodho’bhijāyate ।।62।।
The man dwelling on sense-objects (People, Money, Power etc) develops attachment for them; from attachment springs up desire, and from desire (unfulfilled) ensues anger. (62)
क्रोधाद्भवति सम्मोह: सम्मोहात्स्मृतिविभ्रम: ।
स्मृतिभ्रंशाद् बुद्धिनाशो बुद्धिनाशात्प्रणश्यति ।।63।।
krodhādbhavati sammoha: sammohātsmṛtivibhrama: ।
smṛtibhraṃśād buddhināśo buddhināśātpraṇaśyati ।।63।।
From anger arises infatuation; from infatuation, confusion of memory; from confusion of memory, loss of reason; and from loss of reason one goes to complete ruin. (63)
Conflict with others is a major source of stress in our routine lives. Every conflict between two people has to do with one side wanting to own what the other side has, or to control it. This will lead to one side wanting to impose their will, view, opinion or belief on the other person. We see this in every conflict in the world: between husband and wife; parents and children; in-laws; friends; boss and employee; business partners; communities, and even between nations. Evil behavior from either one side or both the results causes the reason of stress in our lives.
Lord Krishna here is not referring to the plain human desire to live, love, eat, sleep, cloth and have fun. The kind of selfish desire he is referring to here is the blind ambition Dhuryodhan had of excessive attachment to things which caused him stress and anxiety.

Major Causes Of Stress – As Per Bhagavad Gita
Detoxification From People
In Bhagavad Gita, we see that Arjuna, after realizing that he has to face his own family members in the battlefield, becomes highly stressed and wishes to leave the battlefield. Although, being a great warrior and his duty to fight for the right yet he was unable to do it. Why? Because he was attached to his opposition whom he saw as his family members. Similarly, we are excessively attached not just to our family members but also to money, status, power, position, additives, gadgets and all sorts of materialistic things. And with these attachments, lead to anger, delusion and stress.
- Always maintain a substantial distance with everyone and everything and don’t get too attached with them.
- Always keep a check on our desire and wants.
- Do not have excessive attachments to objects of senses like food, wealth, house, position, people, gadgets etc.
- Work hard towards your goal and be content with what you have.

There Are Some Things Money Can’t Buy
A person is obsessed with making and accumulating wealth even when he does not spend it usefully, it is as useless or dangerous as excess fat in the body. He misses no opportunity to make money or profit. Such people who obsess over money never get to experience true pleasures of life, which are giving back to society, pleasure of contentment, or peace of mind, hence taking them to self- destructive behaviour and following bad habits.
Ignorance Is Not A Bliss (Non-Acceptance Of Present Scenario)
When the five senses come in contact with the outside world,we are bound to experience different emotions. They are unavoidable like in the present situation scenario of Corona. We can’t stop the diseases from spreading but we surely can change our attitude towards it. In corona times rather than complaining about the problems faced, we can adjust ourselves and proceed with our work. When we accept the reality or the present situation then stress starts disappearing. What we have to realise is that everything is temporary in life be it people, money, power. Always respond to the situation and not react and finally let go and move on.

This reminds me a wonderful lesson from Bhagavad Gita when Krishna is preaching Arjuna to be a karma yogi and how we can correlate it with our daily lives:
हतो वा प्राप्स्यसि स्वर्गं जित्वा वा भोक्ष्यसे महीम् |
तस्मादुत्तिष्ठ कौन्तेय युद्धात कृतनिश्चय: || 2.37
hato vā prāpsyasi svargaṃ jitvā vā bhokṣyase mahīm |
tasmāduttiṣṭha kaunteya yuddhāta kṛtaniścaya: || 2.37
“Either you die and attain Heaven or you win (the battle) and enjoy the earth”.
The main idea here is that life is full of uncertainties and Lord Krishna is not in this business of telling you “Everything Will Be Fine, Son”. He is not saying to Arjuna, “Come now, you are the best in this business of war; let us get on with it and you will win”. — No, he just guides him and says two outcomes are possible and it does not matter which one is matrialised. The essence of it is to respond as best as we can to the situation life has thrown at us. “Stop complaining or getting stressed about it and deal with it” is what this message wants to convey!
Everyone wants to know the future: “Will I/my son/daughter get married/be wealthy? Will I live long and a healthy life ? Will this pandemic affect me? Will some misfortune fall on me or on my loved ones? ” In this ongoing pandemic, there are a lot of people who are stressing about their health. We as humans don’t have the power to control the outcome of our destiny but we surely can choose the right attitude to accept what may come.

Stress Relieving Remedies For Each Moon Sign
Moon signs are completely opposite from our Sun sign and carry different significance in our lives. Sun sign has more influence on general behaviour, our attitude, our egos whereas Moon sign relates to our inner self. Moon signs influence the things we do not always let others see- Our fears, needs and emotional response. When we experience any kind of stress , the Sun sign will guide our reaction, however our Moon sign holds the power over our instinctual response and behaviours, hence when in trouble it is better to cater the need of our Moon sign.
