A lot of us find it difficult to ask for help. We can't proactively approach someone to help us out, be it therapy, or even just talking to a loved one.

In this episode, host Preethi talks to Anushka Kelkar and Aviva Bhansali, co-founders of Therapize. Therapize is re-defining the way people engage with their mental healthcare every day. It aims to simplify and personalizse the process of seeking therapy in South Asia by connecting individuals to the right, qualified, culturally competent therapists for themselves and building niche support groups that foster group healing.

How often have we caught ourselves scrolling endlessly on Instagram? Or binge-watching videos on YouTube? Or going down a rabbit hole of information? This type of behaviour subconsciously plays on our mental health and sometimes, we end up feeling worse than before after a scrolling session.

A resource mentioned in the podcast that can be used to limit screen time is ‘App Block.’

That itch to get things done, and still not feeling satisfied. The hustle culture. The stress that comes with deadlines. The need to do, and keep doing.

Listen to Prateek Sharma, psychologist and mental health activist, talk about all of these and more as we try and understand where this behaviour comes from, how it impacts us, and what we should be doing to resolve it.

Have you ever felt 100% happy with your body? Or have there been moments when you've looked in the mirror and thought, "I wish my stomach was flatter", or simply wished there were things that were different?

Body image issues plague the mind, subconsciously eating away at our confidence and our self-worth, manifesting in different forms in work and relationships.

Preethi talks to Rhea Mathews, a mental health researcher and a counselling psychologist, about the effect of societal standards, invisible pressure, and how to accept our body in this episode. If you've ever thought about your body as less than adequate, this one is for you.

Sometimes, the thought of broaching a subject can make us feel terrified, uncertain, unsure, and closed off. Sometimes, we may even feel an inertia when it comes to taking feedback. All of this involves confrontation, which does not need to be as negative as one might think it is.

In this episode, Preethi talks to Ishani Badyal, a psychologist-psychotherapist, about where this behaviour comes from, where its root lies, why confrontation is necessary, and what we can do as individuals to make the process a little easier for ourselves.

How often have we casually thrown this statement around? "I have a ton of work and it's all piled up because I procrastinate so much". Here's the thing - this 'behaviour' is coming from somewhere, and if you've ever wondered WHY you procrastinate at all and how you can try changing it, this episode is for you.

In this episode, our host Preethi talks to Rhea Gandhi and unpacks the thoughts and emotions behind procrastination. Why do we do it? What's going on in our mind when we do? Is there any way to stop procrastinating?

The environment we live in is packed with stressors and each of us finds a different way to cope. Therapy can be a major step in the direction of self-care, but the idea of it is normally met with preconceived notions. That it's expensive, might not offer a helpful perspective, takes far too long to 'work', and is for those who are mentally 'ill'.

In this episode, host Preethi unpacks this thought with Stuti Ashok Gupta, Principal - Brand and Vision at Amrutam and a practicing psychotherapist. Why is mental wellness important? Is therapy right for you? What can one expect?
