If we start being honest about our emotions, our experiences and our mental health instead of pretending they don’t exist, then we will live a better life than we already are living. People during the 2020 pandemic had traumatic life experiences, some lost their loved ones, some came back from death beds, some were stuck alone in some other countries for months, and some were isolated from their own families in their own houses. This year was not easy for anyone, people realized that their physical mental health both are equally important. The awareness of mental health leads to people taking care of themselves by engaging in different activities to relax themselves. Being productive during lockdown was not the aim but being able to sustain the lockdown was more important. The present research was conceptualized to understand how the mental health of different occupations in India have been affected during the COVID-19 Lockdown. A survey was conducted on a sample of 312 people. The psychological factors like stress, hygiene, depression, mood state and happiness were studied across occupations like student, service, business, homemaker and retired. The results show that Students and Homemakers are the most depressed, unhappiest and experience negative emotions.
