    The world before the coronavirus is now gone, changed forever. How can we deal with the new reality we now face? Everything about our lives has changed – from our work, to our relationships and our exercise and even spending habits.
    Questions flood our minds, filling us with anxiety. Understanding this new situation can be difficult. In this time of crisis, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and lost. Not to worry, because we have answers that can help. This episode of Vishnu Ki Secret Life dives into adapting to change. From practical methods, to different ways of thinking, there are several approaches to better adapt to change. Understanding these, can mean the difference between positive or negative change. Can we make the most of this tense period, and come out of it happier and healthier? Knowing what to do and how to do it, can bring us closer to this possibility.

    22: How to Be Happy, Sane and Productive Amid COVID-19 Lockdown

    22: How to Be Happy, Sane and Productive Amid COVID-19 Lockdown

    What do music lessons, art therapy, cooking, and video-calling have in common? Well, they're all great ways to pass your time in lockdown, silly!
    This is a special episode of Vishnu Ki Secret Life, recorded from deep within the confines of my home during lockdown.
    More than two weeks have passed since most of the world went into lockdown, to stop COVID-19 from spreading any further. Two weeks in isolation can do a number to anyone's mental health and peace, going from fun to "when will this end?" quicker than you can say, "coronavirus is not that dangerous".
    We're joined by an art therapist, a music teacher, a part-time chef and full-time lawyer, and a counsellor, on this special episode!
    Guests: Nyana Sabharwal, Founder, SafeSpace
    Anu Singh, Art Therapist, Certified Zentangle Teacher & NLP Coach
    Suyash Gabriel, Drummer & Music Teacher
    Arnab Ghosh, Lawyer & Part-Time Chef

    21: COVID-19: How To Prepare For Social Distancing During Coronavirus

    21: COVID-19: How To Prepare For Social Distancing During Coronavirus

    In the interest of limiting the novel coronavirus’ spread, a number of organisations in India and across the world have asked their employees to work from home, thus eliminating person-to-person contact.
    This, as you may know, is all contributing to what has become the watchword in this time of pandemic and panic –– social distancing.
    Social distancing is a set of non-medical steps that can limit the spread of the virus.
    If we don’t practice social distancing, and if the number of infected keep rising, we also risk overburdening our healthcare system, something that Italy has had to deal with.
    Things have changed, and will have to change as we go on... social distancing – by not going out, by working from home, by limiting human interaction, becomes an essential part of this.
    Today we’ll show you how to prepare for social distancing and do it effectively so you can weather the coming weeks with good health and peace of mind.
    Guests: Dr. Jayakrishnan, Co-ordinator, Regional Prevention of  Epidemic Disease Cell, Calicut Medical College
    Dr. Sumit Ray, Chairperson Critical Care Medicine and Chief of Medical Services, Artemis Hospitals Delhi

    20: Relaxation Beyond Meditation: Five Alternative Stress-Relief Techniques

    20: Relaxation Beyond Meditation: Five Alternative Stress-Relief Techniques

    Modern life is unbelievably stressful. According to a 2018 study, 9 out of 10 Indians feel they’re suffering from stress because of work, health or money. 3 out 4 said they don't feel comfortable talking to a medical or mental health professional for their stress. 
    On this episode of Vishnu Ki Secret Life, I explore five alternatives to meditation for relaxation and stress relief.
    These techniques are useful for different challenges you face daily, including work stress, sleeplessness, social anxiety, and general anxiety.
    The methods I tried include Autogenic Relaxation, Jacobson’s Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique, Guided Visualization, Diaphragmatic Breathing and Body Scan Relaxation.
    Which method will suit you best? Listen to the podcast and find out!

    19: What is Food Addiction: Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

    19: What is Food Addiction: Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

    Do you feel guilty or ashamed after you eat some foods? Do you hide what you eat or how much you eat from people? Do you ever stuff yourself till you’re full, and then keep eating?
    If you said yes to any of these questions, you, or someone you know, might be suffering from food addiction.
    On this podcast, I document my own struggle with food addiction, and how I try to cope with it on a daily basis.
    What’s food addiction?
    It’s an addiction to junk food that’s as strong as drug addiction and as damaging, if not more damaging.
    Like any addiction, a food addiction can kill you prematurely, by causing obesity, heart disease, high cholesterol and a range of lifestyle disorders…and if it doesn’t kill you, it makes you miserable, by taking from you slowly till you’re left a shell of your former self.

    18: The Importance of Self-Care

    18: The Importance of Self-Care

    I think it’s safe to say most of us were hoping 2020 was better than 2019. But just over a month into 2020, many people have already felt that stress levels, both physical and mental have gone up.
    And the first thing that goes for a toss when life gets overwhelming, is your self-care routine. Diets go out the window, exercise routines are ignored and we often stop the steps we took to make sure we were feeling and doing fine.
    But self-care is essential to a healthier state of mind, a better mood, improved energy and overall wellness.
    On this podcast we learn all about how to ensure you self-care and different approaches to self-care.
