Being mentally fit is necessary to be healthy. Sages say one can’t be happy without having good mental health. Doctors also say that. Think yourself, if you feel mentally uneasy what do you feel about everything? Nothing attracts you. Psychiatrists say it depends on mind to be happy or unhappy. They have taught many ways how to be mentally healthy. But one should not think that without keeping body fit can go mere keeping mind fit. Both are related one another.
Many do not like friends. But friendship is very important for a man. To keeping mental good health it is needed to have some friends.

Share your happiness and grievances with them. Human is human not machine.
