#Repost @ranveersingh with @repostapp ・・・ 1 out of every 5 Indians will suffer from depression in their lifetime. Even with all the progress we’ve made in these last few years, there is still a lot of stigma attached to mental health and the treatment of it. This needs to change for our collective well-being. There is a difference between being sad and being depressed. There is hope for both, those who need help and for those who want to give help. Let's join hands to promote awareness about mental health along with the Live Love Laugh Foundation as they launch India's first Mental Health Awareness Campaign. Like their page, follow them them on Twitter and Instagram to create awareness about an issue that is close to our hearts. Always remember to Live, Love and Laugh.

#MondayMotivation at its best with @deepikapadukone doing the #SwanDive on the #Reformer. This exercise strengthens the back muscles, challenges the core and activates the glutes. #befitbecauseyoudeserveit #yasminfitnessmantra #YasminsBodyImage #BeFitwithYasminKarachiwala #Pilates #PilatesMasterInstructor #PilatesIndia #BalancedBody #CelebrityTrainer #DeepikaPadukone #fitnessgoals #bosu
When talking about fitness, this name cannot be omitted. In 2015, he completed the Ironman Triathlon in Zurich, which requires a person to do a 3.8 km swim, a 180.2 km cycle ride and a 42.2 km run. And all this has to be concluded without a break in 16 hours. The 52-year-old actor completed the course in just 15 hours and 19 minutes! His Instagram boasts of his fitness achievements in each picture.
Bollywood’s sunny boy is known for his good looks, well-maintained physique and of course, poetry. His Instagram pictures get everyone swooning in no time. Apart from working out in the gym, the actor has opted the conventional methods like cycling and outdoor sports to achieve his fitness goals. Farhan Akhtar has, time and again, floored the audience for not only his performance on screen, but his svelte body as well and that too at 44!
Do you remember those throwback pictures of Alia Bhatt before she made her debut in Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year? The actress who was chubby back then is a completely transformed woman now. She lost 16 kgs in just three months to bag the lead role as Shanaya Singhania in KJo-directorial.
Fatima Sana Shaikh
Dangal girl Fatima Sana Shaikh looked really very convincible as Geeta Phogal in Aamir Khan-starrer. She has worked day and night to achieve the look that was required from her to nail the role of a wrestler. She shares her workout regime in her Instagram stories almost everyday. Having watched them, you cannot stop yourself from getting up from the bed and hitting the gym.
