The Vacation Anxiety Guide

What we went through during the pandemic has changed us a lot and it’s okay if they feel a lot more overwhelmed in these situations. Remember that they have not not “changed” as much as they have become very aware of everything that can go wrong, because in the last few years, a lot of things have.

The Pursuit of Happyness

I am going to tell you about one of my favorite studies that I happened to come across during my Masters degree. The research basically focuses on the spread of happiness and talks about the impact of other people's happiness on us. As social beings, I think that very often we include food, water and shelter as essentials for survival.

Mental Health Journey with Therapy

Even though I had been avoiding therapy for quite some time, mental health awareness through social media has played an important factor in my life. The idea that one does not necessarily have to experience trauma (or something equally difficult) to go for therapy was unusual for me. As a result, I participated in group workshops conducted by Gulmohar. One of the workshops was about decoding the meaning of life, and another one was about body positivity. With the internet going gaga over the ideas of fat/thin shaming and the obsession with physical appearances; the workshop felt like I like...
