Everyone has a different threshold of handling stress and anxiety. All of us have a different personality. You may be someone who is sensitive by nature and feel that are affected much more by incidents than others. If it is bothering you and is distracting you enough. You should consult a psychologist who can help you identify how can you modify your responses or reactions to a stressful situation and cope up in a more efficient way. Meanwhile breathing exercises and meditation are effective tools of self help that tend to help pol be more in touch with their emotions and thus manage stress in a better way. I d be happy to help you in resolving your stated issues you can get in touch with me for this through online or in person consultation.

When line of negativity feels long and strong. Slowly one need to work on building positivity back. I will suggest you few things below, incorporating them slowly in your day will help you make this transition. If you have something which happened recently which is making you feel negative then may be you need to talk to someone about it specifically to figure out the best way to deal with the situation. What you are feeling is conic stress due to our fast life style. You could also this as feeling burnout. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps if you are interested in short 4 to 8 week resilience training you may contact me. Wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate user. I am sure that you consulted your child specialist about this. What was his advise. Delay in speech is normal upto an age of 2 and half years. Even though there is speech delay, 2 year old child should speak some words, for sure. I suggest you to have a detailed discussion with your child specialist. Take care.

Avoid studying in or near the bed. Also dont study in a lying posture. change the subject you study every one to two hours for variety Take regular, scheduled breaks that fit you, For every thirty minutes of studies take five minutes break. During this break time just close your eyes and relax yourself, If you have been studying continuously in a sitting posture, get up and stretch yourself. You can even have a short walk which will make you feel active Use active studying techniques Walk around and read loudly For every fifteen minutes change the method of studying. For example first study loudly in a sitting posture, followed by writing down the points which you feel as important or the ones which needs frequent reading and review, then draw the related drawing graphs etc, then have a brief discussion or sharing of what you have studied with your friends or any other people around you. Involve in activities that does not demand your attention such as jogging and review what you have studied. Alternate between studying and such physical activity. Read out loud, record it in audio tapes for listening whenever you are less active Involve in discussions and debates with your friends or teachers on what you have studied and your understanding of the content. Create mental images about what you are studying, draw pictures and diagrams frequently to reinforce

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. In these 10 days you are supposed to review and try recalling whatever you studied for the last 9 or 10 months. Don't stress yourself. The more you stress yourself the more you will be in trouble. Study 6 to 8 hours maximum and get at least 7 hours sleep daily. Take care.

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Friendship is the fuel that keeps life interesting. Imagine a robotic life where you do not have anyone with whom you can chill or unwind at the end of the day. Friends are people with whom you can be yourself without having to worry about needs and requirements or judgements, at least most of the time. They are the layer that lies between your family and the rest of the world and provide you with a balance of sorts as far as insights, outsider perspective, advice for meeting challenges and unadulterated enjoyment go. 

But many times, extreme shyness and an introvert nature can stop people from making friends easily. So how can you initiate friendships and keep them close? Here are a few tips!

  1. Understand Shyness: First of all, understand why you may be shy and how it makes your brain work. Shyness strips you of your security when you are faced with a new place or face. Also, it can lead to dismissive or avoidant behaviour, which keeps us from approaching people and learning more about them. Also, it keeps us anxious and preoccupied and makes us think that we will be met with rejection if we try to initiate friendship. Sounds vaguely familiar? Read on to know more.
  2. Eye Contact and First Impressions: The first way to initiate a new friendship is by making eye contact and following it up with a smile before the person in question averts his or her gaze. This is an unspoken language that is almost always answered similarly.
  3. Greeting: You can now approach the person and start by saying hello. It may be someone whom you have been seeing on your way to class or in the office cafeteria or even someone who lives in your building. So chances are, that this person would have noticed you too. Introduce yourself and ask for the person's name.
  4. Acknowledgement: Use the person's name often to show that you are acknowledging the friendship and ensuring that a bond begins to settle between the two of you from the word go. Offer to introduce this new friend to your other friends as further acknowledge of this new friendship.
  5. Information: In a new friendship, it is crucial to find common grounds without breaking the barriers of privacy. So ensure that you ask neutral questions about hobbies, family, education, work and other such issues without asking the when, where, what and how of things that might have to be explained by sharing personal details. In this way the person in front becomes more comfortable.

Be aware of the reasons that stop you and build your confidence when it comes to approaching people for friendship!
