Being a smoker puts you at a higher risk of heart diseases. Man boobs or gynecomastia if present since your teenages may not be abnormal. However, if it is a recent development, you aill need to get a reproductive hormone profile done.

How to Manage Your Stress

Stress Management

Stress is a phenomenon which makes us fight the acutely dangerous situations.

The FIGHT or FLIGHT esponse

Is stress really bad?
How and why you get stress.
Dealing with distress.
Becoming a winner

Stress is a psychological and physiological response to events that upset our personal balance in some way.

These events or demands are known as stressors. Stressors are present everywhere all the time.

Stress is a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize

The stress response

The short-term 'Fight or flight' response - basic survival instinct.

The long-term 'General Adaptation Syndrome' - a long-term effect of exposure to stress.

A third mechanism comes from

'The way we think and interpret the situations in which we find ourselves.'

Work Place Stress

Environmental stressors

Change of place
Team interactions
Goals and targets
Time constraints
Definition of job profile
Traveling to and fro from the workplace
Long irregular hours of work
Competition
Lack of job satisfaction
Less time with family and friends
High Performance Demand
Social Status

Common symptoms

Headache
Sleep disturbance
Upset stomach
Difficulty concentrating
Irritability
Low morale
Poor relations with family and friends

Stress plays an important role in several types of ongoing health problems

Cardiovascular disease
Musculoskeletal conditions
Psychological disorders
Obesity
Hormonal Imbalance
Cancers
Substance  Abuse

Stress Management

The effective goal of stress management is the effective use of energy by:

Learning to recognize the symptoms of stress
Learning skills to control these symptoms
Practicing and using these skills
Find Ways to Dispel Stress

If you feel stress building, take a break. Walk away from the situation. Take a stroll around the block, sit on a park bench, or spend a few minutes meditating. Exercise does wonders for the psyche by releasing endorphins, the 'feel good hormones' But even just finding a quiet place and listening to your iPod can reduce stress.

Cultivate allies at work. Just knowing you have one or more co-workers who are willing to assist you in times of stress will reduce your stress level. Just remember to reciprocate and help them when they are in need

Management of Self

Shying away from Stressors is not going to solve your problem.

1.Have realistic expectations
2.Reframe problems
3.Accept. Don't live in Denial
4.Excessive involvement. Don't try to control events or other people

1.Maintain your sense of humor
2.Express your feelings instead of bottling them up
3.Whatever may be the stage of life, remember change is inevitable, circumstances as well as roles in life.
4.Remain adaptable and open to change.

Avoid comparison. The grass is always greener on the other side

When it comes to mind and matter

If you don't mind, it doesn't matter!

Its perfectly normal, dont feel guilty about it. Even in a relationship adults having sex outside is quite normal. In life love, passion and lust have thin boundaries. As long as it is a consensual sex between 2 consenting adults then it is medically not wrong. But different societies, and culture promote monogamy as the way of life and consider these events as ethically wrong. Whether this is right, varies between individual perception according to their own brought up, cultural values, and knowledge. What is right for one is wrong for another. So don't make life complicated and live as it comes. Enjoy life without making others or yourself unhappy.

You are being treated for Generalized anxiety disorder and this medication is the lowest dose. You should never discontinue medication without doctor's advice. The symptoms you describe are typical side effects of this medicine. Hello Doctor, my psychiatric doctor prescribed me Fortinerv, Depran -5, klonaz md 0.25 1st and 3rd is for the morning and the 2nd one is for night as I told him to reduce my medication and I want to stop having medication. By giving this prescription am I able to get rid of this medication slowly? I think that before you ask your doctor to reduce your medication, make sure you are complying with all the requirements as prescribed. Now if you are serious to want to reduce the medication, you must also work with a counselor and develop some skills and techniques to help you cope with the daily challenges of this condition. Then, as you improve in behavior and coping skills, the doctor will reduce the medication but in such a manner that it will help tease the brain to produce the same naturally. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

My smokes 2 cigarettes every day. Please suggest any home remedies to reduce tar?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi, When you smoke cigarettes your vitamin A, C and E levels lower. You can still restore them though! Eat fruits, such as Kiwi, that are rich with these vitamins, and your body will start restoring these levels. Spinach is full of folic acid and is full of vitamins. It contains vitamin A and flavonoids which are known to help protect the body from lung cancer. Spinach is also rich in iron, which your body needs to carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Make sure you are always drinking water. When you smoke your body becomes dehydrated. You can hydrate your body back to normal, and flush out all the nicotine by drinking a lot of water. Onions are amazing! This vegetable helps when it comes to cleaning out your lungs! Onions can prevent many diseases, including lung infections. Oranges contain cyrptoxanthin, which also helps prevent lung cancer. Oranges are also rich in vitamin C which help your lungs effectively transport oxygen throughout your body. Ginger helps defend against malignant diseases. You can eat a piece of ginger with a meal, or drink ginger root tea, as it facilitates breathing. It is a very strong tool to relive you from the toxins in your lungs. Exercising is a great way to keep your lungs healthy. Deep breathing exercises help strengthen your lungs, so make sure to do breathing exercises regularly. If you don’t know any types of breathing exercises you can follow this one: Stand up, keep your arms at your sides, keep your feet a little apart, and relax. Take several deep breaths, breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth until you can’t exhale anymore. Make you Diaphragm let out all of the air from your lungs by heavily gasping. Make sure to exhale through your mouth a few times until there isn’t any air left in your lungs. Inhale through your nose and let the fresh air into your empty lungs. Take a deep breath in and make sure to fully fill up your lungs with air. Hold your breath for 5 seconds, counting slowly. Every cell in your body should be filled with oxygen at this point. Exhale one last time through your mouth until there’s no more air left. You can repeat steps 4-6 as many times as you want. This is a great way to help keep your lungs strong! all the best

Frequent Mood Swings - 4 Ways to Manage them!

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Frequent Mood Swings - 4 Ways to Manage them!

What are mood swings?
Mood swings are defined as sudden and abrupt changes in mood. These mood swings can sometimes help promote problem solving abilities, but a stronger form of these can be associated to a more complex disorder namely, bipolar disorder that is characterised by the cyclical shift from manic to depressive and vice versa.

What causes mood swings?
There are several things that can trigger mood swings starting from your brain chemistry to substance abuse. The most common cause of moods swings can be-

  1. Abnormal levels of neurotransmitters (NTs) in the brain (ex. Serotonin is majorly responsible for change in moods, changes in emotional state and sleep)
  2. Anabolic steroid abuse
  3. Borderline personality Disorder
  4. Autism or other pervasive developmental disorders
  5. Epilepsy
  6. Premenstrual Syndrome
  7. Schizophrenia
  8. Major depression
  9. Post traumatic stress disorder

How to deal with mood swings?
Mood swings can make life difficult for yourself and those around you as well. It is advisable to keep your mood swings under control in order to get along with your life normally.

  1. Try to remain positive: May be you have had a string of heartbreaks off late or failed interviews, but do not let that define a trend in your life. This can lead to depression and make you upset. Keep your mind open to other possibilities and never lose hope. Hope is something that keeps one going; it gives someone a purpose in life.
  2. Balance your life: Learn to maintain a balance between work and leisure. Don’t make your life all about work, take small breaks to do what you like (perhaps read a book, or play an instrument).
  3. Accept the grey in your life:  “Life is like a box of chocolates”. You will never know what comes your way. It is never just black and white. Learn to accept that life can go a little downhill sometimes, but don’t be too alarmed by that. Enjoy the best and always keep yourself prepared for the worse.
  4. Learn to laugh:  Enjoy and appreciate the little things around you. It might surprise you, if you consciously look around with an open mind, you will see the miniscule things that may make you laugh. Maybe that neighbour you find annoying is actually a fun guy to be with or that aunty who is always badgering you with questions is actually concerned about you. And most of all learn how to laugh at yourself! People have made a career over doing that. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. You are more fun than you expected to be. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.

You must visit a doctor and a counselor immediately. You are fortunate to function to some extent quite well currently. But I am doubtful if it will last long without medical intervention and extensive counseling. It is possible to arrest this development in the initial stages and stave off a serious condition. Also, because you are young and reaching out at this juncture itself, it is possible that the prognosis will be good. Take your parents along for information pertaining to your early childhood and some genetic history of the family. The combination of the two therapies will definitely help far better than just o one of them. In therapy you will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. You will also learn about emotions and how they can impact your condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip you for life. Talking and sharing about the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand yourself and moderate your responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training your mind. Exercise must be a regular part of your life for various reasons. Put yourself on a productive and strict schedule. An idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure.

Sleep is not a cure for stress although it may help in relieving it. You need to examine what is causing the stress and go after it to seek a resolution. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution: sleep will give you temporary escape and will also give you the necessary rest from the day’s stress but it will never resolve it. In fact, you may feel fresher after good sleep to then take up the stressors of the next day. But to resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. The rudeness is a sign that you are scared. so meeting a counselor is mandatory to your​ resolution.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Smoking cigarettes can cause cancer and other respiratory problems. Nicotine is addictive and thereby smoking is an addiction. The best method to stop smoking is to use your will power. If you have will power you can easily quit. If you do not have will power, even medicines are not helpful. I suggest online counselling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.

My memory is deteriorating. Pls suggest me effective solution as soon as possible so I can concentrate for my final exam.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Thoughts are like magnets, whatever you attract comes to you.I know it seems easy to suggest but your will power and wish can do magic. You need to pen down 10 good things you have in life or makes you happy today, then concentrate on those things. Whenever negative thoughts surround you think of a very normal process of our nature, that is day and night.however long the night may be its is going to end and morning is surely going to come.Similarly in your life also, you might be going through night full of problems but day will come surely and how early the daytime comes is in your hands.It means start doing things which are constructive and makes you happy as simple as eating what you like to from visiting people you love to or doing your hobby . Although I need some specific details to help you surely. Pls contact me and visit and I can help you positively to come over your problem. Thanks
