The writing on the wall is clear: a mental health pandemic looms large before us. However, there seems to be reason for hope, too. A doctor from Texas recently told me that for the very first time her young clients were asking for Yogic practices to address their depression. If mental health disorders are on the upswing, awareness also appears to be on the rise.The world is awakening to the fact that wellbeing entails investing in ourselves, not merely in medical systems. If we employ our body, mind and energy wantonly and randomly, we will turn into walking calamities.There is substantial scientific data today to prove yoga is not just a fad. It is a full-fledged science that manages our physical and psychological systems, and maintains a chemical balance that keeps energies effervescent, and prevents them from depleting.Studies show that it dramatically increases Brain Derived Neurotropic Factors that determine mood, making it a simple, effective, non-pharmacological low-risk therapy and prevention strategy against depression and anxiety.The science works on multiple levels. There are daily processes – both simple and complex — to enhance physical immunity.If I have maintained a hectic travel schedule and never cancelled a public engagement in thirty-nine years, it is entirely due to these. Yoga also empowers you to direct your own thoughts and emotions; not be directed by them. Once you are no longer enslaved by cycles of reactivity, staying mentally balanced is no longer a problem.By: Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
