Ahead of World Mental Health Day, Malaika Arora shared a post on her Instagram profile, in which she asked her Instafam to share their stories. The actress wrote about how yoga helped her “survive” and wrote in her note: “Tomorrow, the 10th of October is World Mental Health Day. Here is a little confession. I thought I was bulletproof until it hit me that I wasn’t emotion proof. My mind started to play games with me the rules of which I didn’t know. I survived because of yoga.” The 47-year-old star wrote about her “breaking point” and added, “My breaking point came on a day while I was in my first few yoga classes and my tears didn’t stop. I survived the storm within me. I will never call myself bullet proof because none of us are. I will call myself stable and in the path of continuously wanting to become mentally, physically and emotionally healthy. This is my SARVAstory. Write to us with your story because ‘we are listening’.”
