Kajal Pisal: Mental Health Important to Survive Entertainment Industry
She says: “A career in entertainment industry is never easy. To pursue a career here one need to be ready to accept insults, partiality, body/age shaming, sexual remarks, and discouragement. If one can happily ignores such barriers and keeps working hard and flaunt their skills to win audience hearts that can only make you successful else the situation can make you fall into depression.
You may face financial crisis, staying jobless for long is a huge risk of our showbiz. One needs to be strong to deal with all such circumstances.”
As April is celebrated as Stress Awareness Month since 1992 to raise awareness of the causes and cures for our modern stress epidemic.
Kajal highlights the ways that she manages to keep herself happy.
She adds: “One needs to be aware that nothing is permanent everyone experiences good and bad times. Everyone in the world deals with stress, and many people have overcome stressful situations. You are not alone.
To overcome the bad, accept the situation and react in a calm and composed way. I engage myself in gardening, cooking, or talking with friends to keep myself happy and find a way out to overcome my problems. At times I do read spiritual lectures to find peace.”
