Ira Khan says activities she called self-care were actually self-destructive: 'I couldn't think of a single thing'
- Aamir Khan's daughter Ira Khan has shared a video in which spoke about self-care. She said she realised that what she originally thought were self-care activities turned out to be self-destructive acts.
Ira Khan shared a video on her social media account on Sunday to reveal a recent epiphany she had. The 23-year-old, who's the daughter of actor Aamir Khan, was sharing her plans for International Self-Care Day when she made the confession.
In the video shared on her Instagram profile, Ira Khan said, "I was trying to think of all the things that count as self-care that I do for me when I'm not feeling so good. What do I do to make myself feel better and I realised that all of the things I was thinking of were actually self-destructive and I couldn't think of a single thing that I do that is caring for myself. All of the things that I do are tending towards the things that I do when I'm self-destructive. So it was funny and not funny all at the same time."
She then revealed that her foundation, Agatsu Foundation, has planned a series of activities leading up to Self-Care Day. They are dubbing the activities as 'Pinky Promise to Me.' Speaking about the plan, Ira said, "24th of July is international self-care day and Agatsu has decided to do a week of activities around self-care. We are calling it 'Pinky Promise to Me'. So it's a pinky promise to yourself. There's going to be one that we will put up every day and I'm going to try and do each pinky promise to me."+
Ira established the foundation soon after her birthday, which was in May. Elaborating on the aim of the foundation, Ira had said in an Instagram video, "Agastu is my attempt, it's my way of trying to find a balance, of trying to attain equilibrium to make my life better for me, to facilitate you in making your life better for you, whatever that means for you."
Over the past year, Ira has been vocal about her struggle with mental health ailments. She has been sharing her fight with depression. She had revealed she was diagnosed with 'clinical depression' four years ago.
