With students losing their valuable years due to Covid and many people losing their jobs, I meet twice the number of people suffering from depression. Even the war in Ukraine to has led many students and families into serious stages of anxiety and depression.”

Dr. Neha suggests a few realistic goals to be performed by those undergoing depression-like planning small goals instead of big targets, reading ten pages from any book, cleaning wardrobe, organizing work desk, etc.

The pandemic that locked people inside their homes, cutting them from the entire world, and making them socially inactive has resulted in stress, anxiety, and depression.

“Meditation, creativeness, exercise, nature, and spending time with loved ones are the effective remedies to kill depression and anxiety,” said Dr. Neha.
