6 Principals of Stress Management

Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
Internal Medicine Specialist, Bangalore
6 Principals of Stress Management

6 principles to effective stress management.

  • Are your experiencing very apparent hair loss especially when it doesn't run in your family as a hereditary?
  • Are you experiencing a lower back pain in spite of having an active lifestyle?
  • Are you accumulating abdominal fat or not able to get rid of it even after performing focused workout for abs?
  • Are you extremely susceptible to anger, i. E do you erupt or explode in anger often on matters which can be addressed contextually?
  • Are you falling sick very often? or do you get heart burn or chest pain frequently?
  • Are your sleeps not deep and or are they disturbed or intermittent?
  • Is your sexual life losing charm inspite of young energetic age?

If you are experiencing any of these or a combination of these, it is time you step back, look into the way you are managing life and the stress related to various aspects in life before stress could inflict worst health disorders in you. 

Stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, liver cirrhosis, and suicide.

Here is a wellness method you can adopt to remain stress free or manage stress effectively.

Principle one: 
Observe if you have any of the above or combination of the above effects of stress, many people don't even realize this, they just visit a doctor or take medicines blindly without paying any heed to their body and mind to understand what is going wrong. These effects can be used as indicators for being in the state of stress

Principle two: 
Organize and plan your day, being organized will help you stay prioritized through out the day and give you the ability to handle additions and randoms more effectively. Mind will have less stress to handle as being organized allows you to be naturally more accommodating to work additions and randoms. Upon handling the day better, there is release of feelgood hormones in the body leaving you with sense of satisfaction and happiness instead of leaving you stressed.

Principle three: 
Do not talk or take decisions when you are angry. Be always aware of your anger, the moment you feel you are about to get angry, break your conversation politely and resume after half hour, you will see that this will allow you to communicate what you wanted to more effectively and with better clarity. Every time you get angry, you are affecting the heart rhythm and rate blood flow.

Principle four:
Meditate daily for 20 to 30 minutes. Meditation helps you isolate everything away from mind, it releases endorphins and dopamine, which will balances the stress hormone cortisol. Meditation will help you stay detached from disturbances surrounding an issues and at the same time enhance your ability to address it without getting stressed. 

Principle five:
Ensure you get your quota of sleep. It is of paramount importance you get good sleep. Please don't think of sleep as a passive activity. Sleep is an extremely active activity wherein the mind relaxes, the body processes many recovery/repair/restore activities and equilibrium mechanisms. 

Principle 6:
Do not worry about the future. 
Do not think about the past.
You must only bother about how you are going to make the current second or the present moment effective and meaningful because your future is decided by what you choose to do now in this very moment.

In my next posting on stress and wellness, I will talk about rajas, thamas, sattva, the science behind it why they are important for progressive healthy life.

2-3 months ago I had depression and suicidal thoughts, suicidal thoughts were very frequent and I started cutting my skin in hand and I also attempted suicide once by cutting my wrist and got 4 stitches. But after some days these thoughts were not coming frequently. 1 or 2 times in a week, but now my depression is relapsing and suicidal thoughts are also coming again. I am afraid that I would harm myself again. Please help me.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Hi I was in relationship with a girl for few past years We both struggled a lot to be in relationship. We faced so many odds and we did it after a long effort But three months back she broke up with me. The reason being her mom. We had actually decided to convince our parents and then get married it was still a long way to go. But from few months she is very much worried that her mom will not accept our love. Her mom is a widow having 3 daughters. My ex girlfriend being the eldest of all. Also one of her relatives had gone through love marriage and all of their relatives are ignoring like they are not even humans. So she doesn't want her mom to be humiliated in the same way. That's the reason she broke up with me Earlier she did so many promises to me that she'll never leave me. But now shez not at all interested in love. I m truly addicted to her I am in utter depression since our breakup. I was really a studious boy since breakup. I got really good grades in my +2 but now in B. TECH I have flunked in 3 subject. Shez certainly not my distraction. Only reason I can't concentrate on anything is I love her a lot and I feel too lonely and empty without her Life sucks without her. I have no hopes that I may get her back but also I am sure I can't be happy without her. I think my problem is too lengthy please don't mind. Please read completely. I am in a state of depression I can't forget her Can you please suggest what is the best thing to do now? I really don't want to miss her. I am totally confused can I get her back? Or should I give up? Please advise me Thank you.

Hi , I can completely understand your concern. Your situation demands proper counseling sessions. It’s never easy when a significant relationship ends. Whatever the reason for the split—and whether you wanted it or not—the breakup of a relationship can turn your whole world upside down and trigger all sorts of painful and unsettling feelings. But there are plenty of things you can do to get through this difficult time and move on. You can even learn from the experience and grow into a stronger, wiser person. Few things to Consider: Don’t fight your feelings – It’s normal to have lots of ups and downs, and feel many conflicting emotions, including anger, resentment, sadness, relief, fear, and confusion. It’s important to identify and acknowledge these feelings. While these emotions will often be painful, trying to suppress or ignore them will only prolong the grieving process. Talk about how you’re feeling – Even if it is difficult for you to talk about your feelings with other people, it is very important to find a way to do so when you are grieving. Knowing that others are aware of your feelings will make you feel less alone with your pain and will help you heal. Journaling can also be a helpful outlet for your feelings. Remember that moving on is the end goal – Expressing your feelings will liberate you in a way, but it is important not to dwell on the negative feelings or to over-analyze the situation. Getting stuck in hurtful feelings like blame, anger, and resentment will rob you of valuable energy and prevent you from healing and moving forward. Remind yourself that you still have a future – When you commit to another person, you create many hopes and dreams. It’s hard to let these dreams go. As you grieve the loss of the future you once envisioned, be encouraged by the fact that new hopes and dreams will eventually replace your old ones. Know the difference between a normal reaction to a breakup and depression – Grief can be paralyzing after a breakup, but after a while, the sadness begins to lift. Day by day, and little by little, you start moving on. However, if you don’t feel any forward momentum, you may be suffering from depression. For targeting your specific concerns, we would need to take sessions. All the best:)

Please help me to understand that how can I maintain my attitude? Have become biggest issue of my life. Issue: Its not like i am not charged up, energetic and enthusiastic but i am unable to maintain it. For the matter of a fact, I also know that its quite not possible to be always enthusiastic or confident but in my case frequency is very high of being pissed off. I have planned to start up Yoga very soon for the same but still if I can get any specific path or route to follow only for this particular issue, it would be highly appreciated. Please look forward to the issue as its becoming crucial day by day.

I am 35 years old and suffering with sinus and allergy problems like sneezing all the time I had operation 2 years back and I feel that my through is filled with water like I have given up smoking 1 year back.

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Mr, lybrate-user if you have been operated earlier than I have some thing for you and read this carefully, sinus is a normal roomy structure around nasal cavity its infection called sinusitis, if a person suffering from nasal obstruction along with sinusitis and mild to moderate nasal allergies it means most probably he is suffering from dns (deviated nasal septum. Nasal obstruction is because of the deviated portion of the nasal septum (this is the bony partition of the nose cavity. Allergies are because of the hampered muco-ciliary mechanism (normally mucus is produced in the nose to moisten our nose cavity, oral cavity, and help food bolus to move downward, this mucus is basically moves on the cilia of the nasal mucosa) this mechanism gets hampered and mucus start accumulating in the nose and sinus cavity which is why thick mucus comes from nose in patients of nose obstruction and person develops sinusits. When a surgeon removes the nasal septum deviation has not been removed properly the symptoms persists, and patient thinks that the nose bone has again regrown. It is not because of regrowth but because of half surgery done or due to the non removal of the deviation (reason can be many) nowadays nasal septal deviation can be removed endoscopic-ally.

Whenever you will try and unable to change people, places or situations, you will get angry. Please try to change yourself not others. Do daily meditation/walk and yoga think positive live life one day at a time, not in the past or future.
