The therapist tries to identify the negative and unhealthy thought patterns and help the patient with behavioral answers to deal with challenging and stress situations. 

2) Psychoeducation

3) Creative Therapy

Also known as art therapy helps you gain freedom from depression. Art is a very powerful and healing weapon. It is believed that creation can treat depression as it is a great mode of expression. One can express his/her thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Plus, art gives a broad capacity for love, joy and confidence.

  • Mindfulness
  • Distress tolerance
  • Emotional regulation
  • Interpersonal effectiveness.

5) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

The therapy tries to understand the tendency of an individual and makes them realize the importance and vitality of life. It does not try to just change or stop unwanted and stressful thoughts and feelings. Rather, it tries and teaches to make new and compassionate bonds with the same experiences.

6) Mindfulness & Meditations

There are several types of mindful activities and meditations that help in depression, such as loving-kindness meditation, mindfulness meditation, breath awareness meditation, transcendental meditation, visualisation and body scan meditation.

7) Lifestyle modifications

 In order to keep stress at bay you just do not need to exercise for a manager’s time but also maintain a healthy lifestyle.  By Healthy lifestyle, we mean eating a balanced amount of food and staying away from toxins. Keep in mind the following points:

  • Take a healthy diet:  if you provide your body with full nutrition your mind will be able to cope with stress much more easily. Never skip breakfast because it helps you keep your energy up and your mind clearer throughout the day.
  • Cut down on Caffeine and sugar:  caffeine and sugar are something That crashes your mood and energy. To avoid Coffee, soft drinks,  chocolate, and sugary snacks. 
  • Say no to alcohol cigarettes and drugs: People under stress try to self-medicate themselves with alcohol or drugs so that they can escape from a stressful situation.  but they fail to realize that this is a temporary relief only. Instead of this look for ways that can permanently solve your problems and this will only happen if you fight back strongly.
  • Get enough sleep: an adequate amount of sleep and save the fuel for your mind as well as your body. Feeling hurt increases your stress and also leaves you to think irrationally.

“I am a working professional and it’s tough to attend physio sessions regularly. After suffering from a backache for around three years, my friend suggested that I try Mantra Care for their physiotherapy services. I was able to get completely back pain relief, after taking a completely online course. Thanks to my PT at MantraCare for this, who conducted sessions whenever I needed them.”
