Actor Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda is working on normalising the conversation around mental health with her organisation Aara Health. On Tuesday, the organisation’s Instagram page shared a video in which Navya talked approximately her own struggle with anxiety and how she has sought therapy for it.
In a conversation with the other co-founders of the organisation, Navya said that earlier she didn’t feel comfortable talking approximately going to therapy. “It was once something new for me as polite. I wanted to roughly experience it myself before talking approximately it. Obviously, my circle of relatives knows that I am in therapy but I don’t think any of my friends do. I don’t realize whether would still go and tell them,” she said. Navya’s mother Shweta Bachchan commented ‘Bravo’ on the video.
“I went quite recently, like you said that you realise when you hit rock behind. I feel like I hit rock behind more than one times and I just couldn’t figure out why. I used to be like okay, obviously something has to change, I want to talk approximately it. I think it helped coming to that conclusion. Now once a week I am in that routine and I don’t think I am even near to hitting rock behind because I have everything in keep watch over, I am talking to someone. Now I will be able to identify what are the things that even get me to hit rock behind. People realise too late once in a while that they want to get help,” she added.
Navya said that what helped her was once surrounding herself with people who motivate her and make her feel good. “There have been times in my life when I haven’t been surrounded by positive people and I have seen how negatively it has impacted the way that I think. Not just approximately myself but approximately the world. I have learnt from then on that I am only going to surround myself with people who make me feel good and happy,” she added. Navya even mentioned how reality shows help her de-stress and that she enjoyed watching Indian Matchmaking.
Navya is a digital technology graduate from Fordham University. Her commencement ceremony was once organised recently at the circle of relatives’s Mumbai home as she could not return to her university for the ceremony amid the coronavirus pandemic. Shweta and Amitabh had shared pictures from the cute at-home ceremony, with a commencement cap and robe made correct at home for her.
