Millind Soman’s wife Ankita opens up on mental health issues

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Fitness enthusiast, Ankita Konwar has never shied away from speaking about taboos. This time, she opens up about her battle with depression. Read on!

Celebrities live a glossy life and they seem to have it all- money, fame, love, cool houses, latest outfits and supercars! But let’s face it, they too can fall into the deep pit of depression sometimes! And that’s okay, because they’re also human after all. While many celebs have come out and shared their battle talene with depression, mental health issues largely remain a hush-hush subject.

After B-towners like Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar spoke openly about depression, it gave us a lot of hope. Recently, Ankita Konwar, model, runner and fitness enthusiast who is married to actor-model Millind Soman has bared her depression scars to us. And, that’s brave!

Battle with depression

Ankita, who is an avid believer in healthy eating and fitness, often shares Instagram posts about fitness motivation and drool-worthy couple pictures with Millind. The 30-year-old is also seen voicing her opinions on taboos and social stigmas like child molestation and racism. This time, she took to Instagram to share her fearless battle with depression and anxiety with her social media followers.

Recalling the days when she had a ‘storm in her head’, Ankita shared a beautiful sunkissed picture with a rather meaningful and bold caption. “After living a long period of anxiety and depression and getting out of it with all the courage I had in me, I still face tiny episodes of dark patches. Way milder, way shorter and way better than the ‘all consuming’ days I actually lived through.” she wrote in her post.

Sharing the turmoil she underwent, and her battle with depression, she wrote, “I don’t let it consume me, I cry when I have to, I don’t hold onto my thoughts like I used to. I let them come and go as they please. It requires a lot of practice but I’m getting better at it.”

Motivating people dealing with mental health issues to fight depression and emerge as winners, Ankita added, “I remember reading somewhere that ‘some of us require a little more effort to survive in this world than the rest’ and I have finally come to accept that fact. Of course the events and experiences of our lives play a huge role in it. But we must get all the help we can to navigate our way through it. It’s not easy and no it doesn’t get easier, you just get better and stronger.”

Other than seeking medical help, Ankita shares the things that you can do on your own on days when you’re dealing with a sinking feeling or depression.

These things may help:

  1. Physical and mental exercise
  2. Journaling
  3. Cutting down on caffeine
  4. Reducing alcohol intake
  5. Avoiding substance abuse
  6. Engaging with friends and family
  7. Seeking professional help when needed
  8. Keeping a check on triggers
  9. Looking at what you have achieved in spite of all the obstacles

Sending love to anyone battling depression, Ankita wrote, “If you’re having one of those dark days, I’m just here to remind you that your resilience is far stronger than the storm inside your head”

If you’re feeling the ebb and flow of depressive symptoms, remember, you’re not alone. The journey can be bumpy and draining but hold on to yourself and you’ll emerge stronger. They say, being open for help is the first step towards healing yourself and you gotta take that step anyway!
