Self Help: The Only Help?

Re-starting afresh amidst a global pandemic does sound a bit daunting, if not completely nerve wrecking or does it!

With masks, social distancing, work from home, virtual coffee dates and even virtual sangeets and baby showers becoming the new normal, we the human race, have time and again proved our adaptation and accommodation ability; we have had a bigger goal- survival. Physical fitness ensures longevity. But what about the ‘animo’ - our mastermind? How are we helping it cope, build resilience with the

changing times? The sound words of Fred Van Amburgh echo evidently saying,

  • Better Ideas

The elephant in the room then is, “Are you ready to help yourself?”
