Hello Adit,

Our mental health is equally important just as our physical health. Negative thoughts, unwanted thoughts, anxiety are all the indications about your bad mental health.

Here are a few tips that will surely help you:

Meditation 
Meditation is the ultimate key to achieving good mental health. 
Just like our physical health, our mental health is also equally important and meditation is the best to achieve the same.

Give 20 to 25 minutes from your busy day for meditation. Practice it in sukhasana or padma asana and concentrate on your breathing. 

Daily meditating will surely lead to a healthy and happy mind.

Diet
Diet also has an impact on our mental health as our metabolism depends on the foods that we have which in turn affects the hormonal secretions.

  • Drink a glass of warm water with lemon juice in it in the morning on an empty stomach. This will help to boost the metabolism at the start of the day.
  • Have soaked raisins and other dry fruits to get the easily absorbable nutrients. 
  • Eat sprouts, nuts, beans and salads.
  • Include Vitamin C in your diet like blueberries, amla, orange or lemon as they have antioxidant properties. 
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to eliminate the toxins out of the body and to be hydrated. 
  • Avoid dairy products and animal products as they are not meant for the human digestive system and hence it results in the accumulation of toxins in the body. 
  • Avoid processed, packaged and preserved foods as they have bad effects on our digestive system. 

Yoga

Daily yoga is very effective for achieving a good balance between the mind, body and soul.

  • Practice suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Do bhujanga asana, paschimottan asana, gomukha asana and padahasta asana. 
  • Do pranayam regularly for 15-20min, specially anulom-vilom and kapalbhati pranayam. 
  • Take sunrays early in the morning. 

Sleep 
The quality and pattern of the sleep also determine the state of our mental health as it affects the circadian rhythm and in turn the hormonal balance. Sometimes, lack of proper also leads to mental illness. 
So, take proper sleep of at least 8 to 10 hours daily.
Avoid electronic devices like mobiles, laptops, computers, tv, etc at least 1hour before sleeping to improve the quality of sleep. 

Thank you

Dear Adit,

Thanks for sharing your concern with us! We understand your concern regarding your negative thoughts. We appreciate that you want to deal with the issue without medication. Yoga/pranayam are diefintely benefitial for physical ans well as mental health. We would like to share with you the Nature Cure perspective on mental health.

As per Nature Cure approach the body is seen as a whole unit and therefore any health issue (physical/mental) is concerned with the overall functioning and internal state of balance. Owing to wrong lifestyle choices, toxins get accumulated in the body and disrupt the internal balance. Our gastrointestinal tract ( GI Tract or GUT) is a long tube inhabited by millions of microbes and about 70% of our health depends on the quality of the gut. These microbes play a crucial role in communicating with the brain. When the sensitive balance of gut flora (microbes) is disturbed it affects our mental health too. 

If we support the body with the right inputs in terms of food as well as non-food elements (like sleep, exercise, relaxation etc.) we can prevent and heal physical as well as mental health issues. We would thereby encourage you to adopt a natural lifestyle to deal with your condition. You can explore our Natural Health Coaching Program that helps you in making the transition, step by step.

Also, we would also like to guide you to a few resources - 

  1. Blog -- Tension, anxiety and depression - Deal with it naturally

  2. Real-life natural healing stories of people who could take care of their anxiety just by following Natural Laws

 We wish you the best of health.
