Milind Soman's Transformation Series Provides Real-time Solutions
The E-conclave “Transformation Series” launched last month by celebrity fitness advocate Milind Soman’s Speaking Minds and experiential agency Idence BDS conducted its second session on the subject “Mental Health”.
Setting the tone of the session Milind Soman spoke about the importance of loving oneself and how what we want to ignite in others should first be ignited within ourselves.
Abhinav Bindra who was the first panellist spoke about his struggles of being positive all the time as he was a realistic person. He highlighted how at times an athlete also needs to don the hat of a talented conman or con woman because they had to con themselves into believing that they are the best and they are going to go up there and win.
As per Abhinav Bindra, “Surrounding Oneself with positive people and creating a positive environment will propel a person further when he is down and out”,
At a time when people are experiencing isolation owing to the pandemic, Cdr Abhilash Tomy went on to share his thoughts on loneliness, solitary confinement and being on boat for six months while he was on his circumnavigation. Interestingly, He clearly explained that that the difference was when one does not like solitary confinement,it was loneliness but when one enjoys it, its solitude and for him the glory of being alone was solitude as he loved it and the confinement was something he did voluntarily.
“Emphasis should be on the importance of spending time with oneself, connecting, meditating and finding time for one's inner journey at least once a day” – is the tip Cdr. Tomy shared during the session.
The 3rd and last panelist Clare Allen spoke about her mental health journey and getting back in touch with herself after her medical experience and how the social work she was given while leaving the hospital, keeping herself distracted helped her. She explained how she shifted her focus and reshaped her energy with a lot of support that enabled her to accept herself in a lot of ways.
Talking to the panellists, Milind Soman also delved into human qualities like self-doubt, mental strength and weaknesses where each of the panelists shared their thoughts and insights while supplementing with their experiences.
Following an insightful discourse the panellists also had questions for each other which was followed by many questions from the attendees for each of the panellists, with some of these questions being answered live.
As part of the series, the 3rd E-Conclave on “Nutrition & Lifestyle” will be hosted by Milind Soman on 04th August 2020 on Facebook.
