The last two years have been tying for us all.
There have been good days and there have been bad. But throughout, we have striven to accentuate the positive.
Today’s episode is our attempt to make sense of it all and see what we have all been through in a positive light.
Today, we talk to Dr. Tina Mistry from Birmingham, UK. Tina is a clinical psychologist, a podcast host, a writer and a speaker on south Asian mental health health.
Some highlights of this episode:
- Social distancing brought families closer
- Mental health > physical health
- The Pandemic gave us more quality time with our children
- It was easier to achieve one’s goals
- Scope for self reflection
- It gave us an opportunity to prepare our child for an uncertain world.
We learn from every experience ONLY if we reflect upon it… and now as the world slowly opens up, we have to ask ourselves: Do we resume our old life and way of being? Or to learn from the pandemic and change for the better.

Support change: A little favour to ask-We believe true freedom is to be able to act without fear or favour and that identity is not a “brand” to be abused, politicized, or reduced for personal gain. As Global Indians, the need to work together is greater now than ever before. If we want to see real change, we need to create a better society for all, tackle injustice and plunge into the many aspects of what the human experience truly offers.The Global Indian Series has been built to be a platform of integrity, fairness and to remain fiercely independent of political influence. We are the first in the world to connect with every echelon of society with all human voices being treated equally. We are the first to have travelled physically to locations far and wide, often putting our own lives on the line to bring forward stories that deserve to be told. Whether it’s through our Podcast that delves into the human experience behind identity, our articles and features that cover key events we need to know, or live based events that tackle topical discussions, we have been there to support a better community and planet.Despite the high costs and time needed to maintain our work, we continue, because we know our work has helped more people understand what is happening within the communities across our planet, why it matters, and how, together, we can demand progress. We challenge head-on, the silent divisions that have crept into our collective consciousness and how to tackle key issues that often go neglected in mainstream media.How you can help:Please share our work: By collaborating with others who share our values, our combined voices make change, with many more becoming inspired to take meaningful action.Subscribe to the platform:Many from across our community have decided to subscribe to our platform.
