Stress and depression, wild unproductive thoughts affect the mental health. It is caused by others and many a times by ourselves. If we are wise enough to keep ourself away from this, we need not worry or hate the materialistic world as the joy of life is buried within us in the form of a talent!
Hobbies – creative expression is not only an excellent way to pass time but also help in mental health which in turn does its bit towards your physical health. Every human has an inborn talent.
