Addressing Myths about Psychologists | Ambalika

If you are wondering that no such thing exists, then let me just enlighten you by busting some unacceptable myths that psychologists generally go through given at what pace this profession is rising.

This cannot be true … Continue reading Addressing Myths about Psychologists | Ambalika

Relationship doesn’t Guarantee Love | Triah

I’ve often seen that in a relationship, one person always thinks that they put in more effort and try harder than the other one. Sometimes it’s easy for us to hold someone responsible for everything and come out clean ourselves, isn’t it? And whenever we think of a relationship, we all want to be heard, valued, respected and above all loved. But we often forget … Continue reading Relationship doesn’t Guarantee Love | Triah

Men’s Health Week | Atray

It is not every day we talk about men’s health in particular as being healthy and discussing health is not something one would associate with the gender. But since men’s health week is here, it is imperative we not only talk about it but also ensure we take care and motivate them to be more active and remain conscious of their good health for a … Continue reading Men’s Health Week | Atray

Busting Mental Health Myths | Kritika

We use a lot of terms very lightly these days— depression, traumatized, bipolar. Being sad, upset or deeply hurt by something does not hold the same meaning as being depressed. Similarly, having a sudden change in one’s mood does not make them bipolar. We have come to misinterpret the definitions of a lot of psychological terms over time and, therefore, misuse them. This has, inadvertently, … Continue reading Busting Mental Health Myths | Kritika

Open Letter to Chandler Bing | Jatin

It’s been 16 years since you’re gone and that void hasn’t been filled by anyone yet. ‘I just want a million dollars’ introduced most of us to sarcasm and hand to god, who wants advice when you are equipped with sarcasm? You made us realize that the kindest-hearted people are hopeless, awkward, and desperate for love, just looking for someone to unpack with together. Bracelet … Continue reading Open Letter to Chandler Bing | Jatin

5 Years Down the Line | Part 3 | Shaini

5 years down the line? A difficult question I have asked myself often and the answers I have given myself over the years have been different but none of them happened as I had envisioned them. Life has a way of throwing one into loops or curves you have never imagined them. Something like that has often happened to me over the years, so much … Continue reading 5 Years Down the Line | Part 3 | Shaini

Smile & Observe | Atray

I remember, a couple of years ago, I was sitting among a few friends, we were discussing a topic that was so-not-important as I don’t even remember what it was! Anyway, things got escalated and the discussion heated up. That’s when one of our friends told us to take a deep breath and smile. I observed that smiling seemed so contagious as we all couldn’t … Continue reading Smile & Observe | Atray

Losing a Part of You | Sneha

The one thing that had been consistent all my life ever since I was eight has been my diary. It was my brother who once said to me while giving me one of his favourite pens (which before that day I wasn’t even allowed to touch), “Everyone will leave one day, but this pen will always be your friend.” I know, heavy stuff for an … Continue reading Losing a Part of You | Sneha

A Ride to Dreamland | Sukhada

Sleep is a small five letter word having tremendous consequences on the overall well being of a man. It plays a crucial role in ensuring the wellness of the human body, both physically and mentally.  Dr William C Dement has rightly said, “We are not healthy unless our sleep is healthy, and we cannot make our sleep healthy unless we become thoroughly aware of both … Continue reading A Ride to Dreamland | Sukhada

5 Years Down the Line | Part 2 | Atray

I’d be lying if I said that this thought didn’t cause me to be awake all night on numerous occasions. It was more so a few years back when I was probably still in school and college. This has reduced since I started working a job. Being in a real work environment made me understand that perhaps no job is perfect and there will be … Continue reading 5 Years Down the Line | Part 2 | Atray

5 Years Down the Line | Part 1 | Jatin

It’s an interesting, speculative topic to talk about. Well, I am 21 as of now. 5 years down the line means 26, which means I would have to do some hard adulting, which is a daunting thought on its own. I swear when I was a kid, all I thought about was how sorted life would be when we’d be adults; no tension of doing … Continue reading 5 Years Down the Line | Part 1 | Jatin
