Deepika Padukone talked about dealing with mental health and said that she felt directionless. She also added that while it all basically started in February 2014, it was her mother who realised that something was not okay. Deepika also mentioned that she broke down in front of her mother and that’s when her mother encouraged her to seek professional help. “I felt empty, directionless and it just felt life had no meaning or purpose. I couldn’t feel anything physically or emotionally. I just felt this void… I felt this for days, weeks and months until one day my family was here and they were going back home and when they were packing their bags, I was sitting in their room and suddenly broke down. That’s when my mother realised for the first time that something was different. My cry was different. It wasn’t the usual boyfriend issue or stress at work. She kept asking me if it was this or that. I couldn’t pinpoint one specific reason. It was her experience and presence of mind that she encouraged me to seek help,” Deepika said. Also Read – Birthday Ranveer Ka Aur Gift Hume Mil Gaya!

Deepika Padukone also mentioned how she cares for her mental health now and ensures that she does not go back to the same state of mind again. “It’s very important for me to focus on the quality of my sleep, nutrition, hydration, exercise, how I process stress and my thoughts and mindfulness. These are the things I have to do on a daily basis not because they are fancy words or it’s cool to do this but I won’t be able to survive if I don’t do all these things,” she said.
