Manasastu chintyam artha: The ancient and foremost teacher of Ayurveda, Charaka Acharya refers to the mind as that which thinks. Mind is the tool which can know and analyze its objective.

In Ayurveda, the mind is considered as the sixth sense, superior to the five sense organs. In some of the Ayurveda treatises, the mind is also referred to as different functions of the brain. Because of its peculiar role in controlling different sensory (knowing) and motor (commanding) functions, the mind has an important role in preventing diseases and to get cured.

Mind develops in one’s life just like any organs of the body. It also gets diseases due to genetic causes, external causes and by the mixture of these. Different types of psychosis conditions, neurosis conditions, personality disorders, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, phobias, dementia etc. are coming under the heading “mental disorders” or the diseases related to mind.

Stress is another major factor which disturbs mental health. Due to many reasons like - behavioral, familial, social, financial and occupational factors people get over stressed. It is a type of mind hyperactivity. Stress can affect the rhythm of daily activities. People can lose interest in drinking, eating, sleeping like essential body functions because of stress. It will trigger hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, obesity like lifestyle disorders which are the basis of serious life threatening health problems. Sometimes the stress can lead to developing some unhealthy habits like smoking, alcoholism and drug use.

Spending much time before the screen makes the mind hyper alert, deteriorating its health. People get less active physically when they immerse themselves in computers and mobile phones. Not only at work, but also in their leisure time, people today prefer the screen. This will create damages to the mind thereby to the body similar to stress.
