Where do you find inspiration to churn out the content?

The more I learn about the problems people go through in their daily life, the more inspired I feel to create good content that could help my readers. I research and read a lot, learn new things, upgrade me just to be able to help my readers, the tips, hacks, and information should help them gain a different perspective towards life.


Is it financially stable to become a full-time blogger?

Blogging is not that easy as it seems to be, creating original and unique content every single day is a challenge in itself. One also needs to put a lot of patience, some money, and time into blogging, blogging never shows immediate results, it takes time for a blog to make its own identity. To stand out in the crowd, where every day you will see dozens of new blogs coming up in the community.

Yes, blogging is a great source of earning, established bloggers earn up to millions of dollars via their content but it is not only blogging, it how you make the optimum use of your content, your site, and you as a personal brand. For a blog to be monetized you must learn SEO, optimization, create compelling content, and be consistent with blogging. Some bloggers even become blog coaches, parenting coaches, life coaches with their experience over time.


What are the major factors you think can affect a person’s mental health?

There are several factors that ruin a person's good mental health but the most common of all is financial stress and relationship stress. In our society, we are not allowed to express our emotions, if we do so, we are termed vulnerable and week. No medical help and lack of safe space to vent out is another big problem.


Comment on the prejudices that society has towards mental health especially in Indian society?

Society is one of the major culprits in aggravating one's mental illness. There is a lot of shame and stigma attached to people suffering from mental disorders that don't allow them to come put, talk, and seek help. It only worsens their conditions. Besides, our society is deeply inflicted with a disease called JUDGEMENT, they make things worse for people with their unsolicited advice, loose statements, and snide comments. 

I believe everyone is fighting a dual fight within, you never know what a person is going through so at least we can be kind and empath enough to not cross the boundary line.


Which the book would you recommend to our readers and why?

I have always been an avid reader and I love to explore the non-fiction genre. The day I started reading self-help corner, I stopped reading other books, I am in the endless search of meaningful books, and these books listed below, have made some concrete influence on me.  So here is a list of 25 self-help books you must read in 2020.
