Yes, stress will induce the vagus nerve which increases the heart rate, acidity and adrenalin secretion. To avoid this do regular exercise and meditation. Walking alone is also a kind of meditation and avoid using music while you walk.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a love. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.

My parents fight a LOT lately and it is affecting my mental health. I sometimes feel like running away somewhere but then I calm myself. Because of this it has become very difficult for me to focus on my life and career. I want to get away from all of this.

Dear user. You are 20 and you have enough experience to understand what is happening with your parents, why are they fighting each other, where do you stand in between them, how to avoid their fighting, how to be a non-participating spectator in their fight etc. If you can't, I suggest online counseling. Take care.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Not sure about social anxiety but yes. You seem to suffer from major depressive disorder. That also for quite sometime. I wonder if there has been any stressor or what are the modalities of treatment you have tried so far. Please sit with Psychiatrist and go for a detail assessment of your situation before entering into any treatment plan.

Hi there i am 28 year old girl. Recently I had gone through a big problem in my life which turned my life. From that day sometimes it happens when I think about anything serious I am unable to breathe for some time and my left hand started paining. Had gone through ECG there was right axis deviation in that but when undergone ECHO it was normal. But the same problem continues with me still when I took anything serious. Moreover I feel stressed so often after that.

I've been having panic attacks since I came back to the place where something really bad happened to me (emotionally) a few months ago. Someone betrayed me and broke my trust in the worst way. But I forgave them and trusted them again. But when I came back to the place where it all happened to me before. Panic attacks started to happen. And this fear came back that the history may repeat itself.

You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

You should eat simple foods like vegetables and cow's milk, avoid tobacco products and reduce common tea and coffee which can cause vaso-constriction leading to headache. Anxiety and fear is due to disconnection from god, so re-connect with god by chanting, reading and hearing nice stories in your free time, thus avoid unnecessary thoughts, doubts and negative feelings by replacing negative feelings with higher taste of transcendental meditation.

It seems you have being wrongly initiated into such acts while all you required at this age was a complete focus on studies and career. Having a gf is not the only aim in life. What about you- you are not able to concentrate on your studies and report of no gf and wasteful activities. When you feel unable to decide what to do, look upto your scriptures, you will never loose track and will always be successful. Best of luck to you.

Hello you should try to talk to that girl about her family and see if things work out. You can talk to her parents along with her and explain them your feelings. If it doesn't work out then you need to move on thinking it as your past. Try to focus on your present by evaluating important things in your life like your exams. You can try to involve yourself in multiple activities so as to keep yourself busy and occupied. You will be able to overcome this.

You are right that your stress causes the headaches. Aapko problem pata hai toh solution bhi aasaan hai. Stress kam karne ke liye kuchh saral tareeke try kariye. 1. Deep breathing. Din mein kam se kam 5 baar 5 slow aur gehri saans leejiye. You can count till 5 for breathe in and again till 5 for breathe out. 2. Imagery. Try to imagine a relaxing scenery. Jitna ho sake utna detail mein imagine karein. Try to imagine relaxing sounds also, like flowing water, birds, wind, etc. Do this just before sleeping. 3. Muscle relaxation. Lie down in a quite and relaxed position. Slowly and gradually, release the tightness from your body. Aapko ek ek karke apni muscles ko dheela chhodna hai. Start from your feet. Then relax your legs, thighs, back, abdomen, chest, shoulder, arms, hands, neck, head and face. Keep your eyes closed and breathe deeply. 4. Seek professional help.

Depression are 3 types ; 1. Reactive depression: occurring in response to some loss, failures or poor marks or poor performance in any field like not having any GF or BF while others colleagues have. Hope- Hope not fulfilled---Hopelessness or despair---------------------Not overcome or coped----------------Depression It may be corrected by convincing and counseling, boosting confidence, improving abilities and skills. 2. Neurotic depression: It occurs more in adults due to job related and family problems while the person is in stress and problems, hopes are gone and coping mechanisms and stress management have failed making a state of helplessness. The person is depressed with disturbed routines and poor performance at work-place further exaggerating problems and depression. But he is aware of his illness and the state of all affairs of family and work place, hence, so much worried and anxious as well. Sometimes it may also occur in teenagers. Though it can be treated by psychotherapy and counseling but most often the person requires drug treatment with SSRI's plus Benzodiazepines for short time, say 2-3 months. 3. Psychotic depression: There is a genetic predisposition and a chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters dopamine, nor-epinephrine and serotonin in brain neuro-circuits between brainstem, cortex and limbic system. Patient is depressed with sad mood, thoughts of worthlessness, disturbed and over-looked routines, disturbed sleep, eating and performance. Patient is unaware to his illness and so not much worried but his family members are much worried about him. Treatment with antidepressant drugs with or without anti-psychotics is must. No cunseling or psychotherapy without drugs, works.

Loneliness - Is There A Way To Manage It?

Loneliness - Is There A Way To Manage It?

Elderly people are usually prone to social isolation which can take a toll on their health. With physical inability or limitations to move around, socializing also gets limited and loneliness comes into your life. Thus, a major section of the senior population tends to have psychological issues as well which may be caused due to the loss of company and lesser interaction as well as a generation gap in trying to deal with younger people. If you are finding it hard to cope with loneliness, here are a few initiatives worth giving a try:

  1. Meet New People: Try giving an effort into meeting new people and enjoying their companionship. With time, few of these relationships might culminate into deep friendship. You can always turn to these people for emotional support as well as keeping company.

  2. Community Volunteering: Volunteer your time engaging yourself in local community activities and social events. Also try and get into interest groups where you can find people who have common interests as yours.

  3. Get back to your long lost hobbies: Re-kindle your long-lost zeal by adopting or getting back to hobbies you truly love, for instance, art and craft, gardening, sewing, playing an instrument, reading and writing, puzzles and writing to pen pals.

  4. Get a pet: Pets can add a new meaning to your life through their unconditional love. There is no greater joy than the joy of bringing up a pet. Ensure how don’t have allergy problems and will be able to keep up with the readily requirements of pets.

  5. Reminisce your good old days: Recollection would enhance your emotional health and will less likely make you feel withdrawn.

  6. Invite people over: In case you are home-bound, coming across people each day would be difficult. In that case invite your mates over tea or keep in touch with them through phone or internet. The internet is also a great resource to keep yourself occupied and to find hobbies that you can get into.

  7. Keep depression at bay: Loneliness can often make you fall prey to depression. Keep a check on any sign of physical or mental deterioration such as the feeling of despair and sadness, sleep-troubles, suicidal thoughts, unwillingness to take decisions, apathy and appetite loss.

  8. Help others: Use your acquired experiences and knowledge of your life-time in helping people out. Teach as well as learn something new each day.

  9. Write it down: Maintain a personal journal to pen down the things you are looking forward to or devise a plan for the forthcoming week.

  10. Take initiative: Do not wait for others to call on you. Instead travel by yourself to visit them. Seize every chance to initiate a conversation and smile even if life seems hard so that people are automatically attracted to you.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated, there are medications which are relatively safe during breast feeding too. All the best.
