Thanking some genius minds of our society, a person suffering from depression is gazed by us as a mental retard. Depression, it comes in many forms and under the veil of embarrassment making it difficult to talk about on a broader platform. Depression can come in any form; it doesn’t always connect with sadness, the choices, working schedule, demand to perform better than the rest, replacing their self-worth with company’s net worth and the longing to stand out from the crowd can place a tariff on the psychological well-being of entrepreneurs at a higher risk rate.
It seeps into our lives slowly and silently
Depression doesn’t knock your door before infiltrating into one’s life. The mantra “time is money” has lost its true meaning in today’s era. In a certain degree, businessmen work such long hours that they devote minimal time to sleep, leisure, exercise, and other activities that help in warding off depression.

Mistaking these signs with stress, we let depression overcome us and the situation gets worse.
