Are dreams & desires mere hallucinations?
Do we dream? Ofcourse, we do! Studies say dreams are mere hallucinations; so are we hallucinating? Maybe, yes.
Did you know that hallucinating more is the symptom of being schizophrenic? Does this mean that we are Schizophrenic? Maybe not, though it’s a mental health issue, but can we correlate our dreams & desires to bigger mental health issues?
In India, at least 3 out of every 1000 are suffering from this problem. As we experience hallucinations that make us experience sensations that are not comprehensible to others, to the person experiencing them, it may seem real, urgent and vivid but, roughly 70% of people with schizophrenia experience hallucinations..
Are mental health issues just the result of stress & anxiety which we experience in our daily lives? The answer is Yes. Now, you could relate to what we are trying to say! All of us dream big. We have these deep desires of conquering this world; atleast millennials and Gen-Z generations who are tech-savvy and are quite ambitious.
Fashion industry, the part of the creative world, has fallen prey to mental health disorders. People who aspire fashion consistently also are the victims of their mood swings. But why? We understand that dressing how you want to feel is a way to embody the state of mind you seek and to shape other people's perception of you in a positive way. But fashion doesn't simply shape our perception and self-expression; fashion also influences how we are treated by other people which in turn can impact our mental wellbeing.
Not just the front-end professionals, but also the artisans, tailors and workers who are part of the supply chain go through mental health issues. Nobody talks about them.
Let’s leave the problem aside and focus on the solution. For people who consume (or) purchase fashion, Retail Therapy is advised as a strategic effort to improve our moods. Research has shown that making shopping decisions can help reinforce a sense of personal control over our environment. It can also ease the feeling of sadness. Retail therapy not only makes people happier immediately, but it can also fight lingering sadness.

Far from the 24/7 flashy lifestyle, professionals across the board are subject to unique and relentless pressures. With high emphasis on finding/being ‘the next big thing', constant turn-overs and staying on top of trends, it truly becomes a stressful environment for professionals across all sectors of the creative industry.
