Everyone today has so much to deal with in their personal/professional life. Not everyone expresses what they are going through in their lives. Upon that the current pandemic situation has worsened the condition. Most of the people lost their jobs, few people lost their loved ones.

Stress is something that will make the situation even worst because it starts affecting your mental and physical health, it demotivates you, loss of concentration, lose focus on your dreams, and sometimes it leads to depression. People fighting with depression sometimes end up taking their lives as well. There has to be a way to stop all these so that people can adapt to a better lifestyle.
