What is mental stability?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) : “Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
How can you achieve mental stability?

- Do your share of work regardless of the circumstance
Don’t make up excuses and complete your duties responsibly. It doesn’t just encourage people around you but it also keeps your mind stable.
