Jacqueline Fernandez on World Mental Health Day: I urge everyone to have a conversation as love and care matters

Mental illness has become the talk of the tinsel town since quite a while now. Many actors have come forward to talk about the same. Today, on the occasion of mental health day, actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is an avid social media user, has opened up about ‘finding balance’ on the occasion of World Mental Health Day.

It is celebrated every year to spread awareness about emerging issues like depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.

In the past, Jacqueline has shared her struggle with major anxiety on social media and also revealed how yoga helped her overcome it. As we celebrate World Mental Health Day today, Jacqueline spoke to ETimes and shared that she is grateful to the people around her who helped her achieve the balance.

I have been dealing with some major anxiety these past few weeks.. however being consistent with yoga has taught me the valuable lesson of being in the moment and what’s even more important.. gratitude.. for life and being alive.. have a great day everyone! Namaste 🙏🏻

She said, “It’s right that one cannot stay positive all the time- there will be ups and there will be downs which would affect our state of mind. But, we also have to know it is us and more so, our responsibility to our own self to strike that balance and harness a positive way of life. I, often find myself in that position but I have found my balance. My state of well-being and my happiness. I am also, grateful for the people around me who helped me achieve it.”

The ‘Kick 2’ actress has also urged everyone to have a conversation as the love and care matters.She further added, “I believe, it’s about self realisation also to some extent. Why am I feeling so when I have my family, I am healthy, able and really doing well? I pushed myself and things worked out for the best. I built myself, physically and emotionally through a routine and a way of life. I am extremely happy that I found myself where I defined my own well-being, positivity and state of happiness. I urge everyone to have a conversation, because the love and care matters- for yourself and for others as well.”
