The pandemic has had a massive impact on people’s mental health. In such times, anxiety and stress have become commonplace.
Food therapist Dr Ria Banerjee Ankola recently took to Instagram to share how anxiety is not restricted to feeling scared.
*A restlessness you can’t explain
*Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin
*Feeling isolated as you struggle to explain how you truly feel
*Anticipation for everything, even a walk down the street
*Many, many physical symptoms
*Intrusive thoughts and overthinking about everything
*A rollercoaster of emotions
Earlier, union health minister Dr Harsh Vardhan had also shared how “protecting your mental health is important for your overall well-being”.
“In these challenging times, inculcate healthy practices in your routine and reach out for help to beat any anxiety,” he said.
