Why Big Cities Mostly Faces Depressive Disorders?

I enjoy many aspects of big city life such as walks to trendy cafes, local coffee shops, cultural activities and meetings with people from different backgrounds. Yet while it may be thrilling to live in a metropolis, several downsides exist. For example, heavy traffic makes socializing with my suburban friends difficult for me. Many other issues are also equally annoying like crowded public traffic, noise pollution, and high rents.

It could seem like small issues, but research shows that overall physical and mental health can be impaired by the heat of urban life and this is why most of the people living in big cities are suffering from mental and physical diseases. 

Why Big Cities Face This Issues?

There are several reasons that make the big cities the most annoying and the most depressing. See the points mentioned below.

  • Cities are overcrowded with people and it becomes very uneasy for travelers and the people commuting to the offices through public transport is very annoying.
  • Air pollution is very common when you know that a huge number of people are living in a small city and taking their vehicle to commute everywhere which makes the air dirty.
  • Big cities are crowded with vehicles and there is a lot of sound pollution and honking made by these vehicle owners which makes the atmosphere more irritating around you.
  • People in big cities are more interested in showing off what they do in the whole day rather than doing something more productive. These self-obsessed people never help someone in a chaotic situation.
  • Metro cities or the big cities are mostly overcrowded with different types of people and the lifestyle of every individual differs from another and people who are already frustrated in their life find it very annoying if someone is not of their type. 
  • Working hours are extending while working and you do not get paid for that is one of the biggest reasons why people are frustrated while working.
  • No Social or personal life to enjoy, living alone gives the saddest intuitions and drags us down to depression.
  • Charges are very high on everything, even if you want to watch a movie, you will think 2-3 times to spend your money on watching a movie and most of the time we end up letting it go to save money for something more purposeful which is right but in this way you cannot enjoy what your heart wants.
  • People are selfish here as compared to the people in the small towns, nobody wants to help someone and everyone is thinking about making money by taking the other down.
  • Food items are not healthy in these cities, maybe a variety of food items are available but the richness of that food is long gone in cities.

Living in a big city like Mumbai, I noticed these things which are very common and you can also experience it in your everyday life. Due to these stressful activities Therapist In Mumbai are mostly in demand to handle the burden and stress of most of the people. Maybe someday when we become a developed country our people can find a balance in their work and social life and stay away from depressive disorders and mental illness.

How Learning To Ride A Motorcycle Changed My Life

It was during my teenage years that I got my first bike ride experience. It was the time before I lost my parents. It was a bike from my father’s friend. I happened to ride it for five minutes or so. Even though I had that experience eight years back, I still remember it very clearly.

That was 12 years ago. I am 25 now. I have a job. Sure, now I can say that I am doing well. But, things could have been different had I not learned how to ride a motorcycle. And that would not have been possible without the help of my friend, Sunny.

Did you ever come across a person you met suddenly and realize that something in your life has changed because of that person? Sunny was one such person in my life whose arrival had changed my life drastically.

I had just finished my 12th Board exams. I was uncertain about my further studies. I didn’t have enough funds to support my education. That was when I met Sunny. I clearly remember the day. I was waiting for the bus to get to my place when I saw a person seated on a motorcycle just near me. I was fascinated by the bike. He must have noticed me ogling at his bike. He said, “Wanna go for a ride?”

I hesitated at his sudden friendly offer. I didn’t say anything. I just shook my head.

“I saw you taking interest in my bike. I can give you a ride if you want. How does that sound?” he said.

This time I agreed to go with him. I really wanted to have that experience of hopping on to a superbike. That was the first day of my encounter with him. Soon we became acquainted. He was in Delhi for his studies while I lived there. He would ask me about the best places to visit in Delhi. I would take him there. That’s how we got to know more about each other.

One day when we got talking about our career plans, Sunny got surprised to know that I had no plans for further study. I didn’t tell him that I couldn’t afford to go to college because of my poverty. I didn’t want him to pity me. However, I couldn’t hide it from him. He understood my problem and offered to help. He was from a well-to-do family and there was no problem in helping me. The only problem then was that I refused to accept any financial help from him. I told him to help me in any other way he can. That was when he came up with the idea of me taking up a part-time job.

The best option according to me for a part-time job was being a delivery boy. To become one I had to know how to ride a motorcycle. With Sunny’s help, I learned how to ride a motorcycle.  That was it. Once I learned to ride a bike, it was very easy to get the job of a delivery boy. Once I had the job, I could gather enough money to pay for my college fees. That was how having a motorcycle changed my life.

One of the best ways to learn how to ride a motorcycle without having your own bike is to get a rental bike. But of course, here you will need the help of someone with a driving license. Here is a website that lists bike rental providers in Delhi and other major cities of India. Check it out and get a bike on rent.
