Abstract

Pandemic COVID 19 has affected our life in many ways. It has affected all dimensions of health (physical, mental, social, emotional, vocational, socio-economic dimensions) in one or other way. Maintenance of mental health is an essential component which demands more efforts from inner self of an individual as compare to any other person from outside. Detailed study of our Ayurvedic scriptures revealed that our Acharya were well aware of this concept and were very much concerned about mental health status of an individual to keep them healthy throughout life. There is a wide description of ways, activities, life style, diet as well as medications and herbs for an individual to stay mentally fit. Thus, in this paper we are going to review the texts in a very practical way that can be adopted in today’s life to maintain healthy mental state.
