There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better. 1. Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise. 2. Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done?' How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make?' Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. 3. Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going. 4. Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out.' Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone. 5. Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you. 6. Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it. 7. Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you. 8. Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert. Or consult me on Lybrate privately

Hi I will prescribe some flower remedies available in all homoeopathy shops. These medicine have no side effects and harmless. Mix 12 drops of scleranthus + 7 drops of white chestnut + 7 drops clematis + 7 drops cherry plum + 7 drops aspen. Mix these well in a small bottle. Consume orally by mouth 20 drops of mixture by adding 50 ml water. Take this every 12 hours. This problem is because of confusion in mind. It can be cured by the above medicine. Let me know about the result.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me what should i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must be under some form of stress which you are not aware of. Stress is a memory buster. You can work with a counselor to deal with that stress and memory will happily return to you. You can still do certain things to improve your memory. Also you cannot do only study and nothing else: a healthy body is very important for a healthy mind i.e. you must also exercise and socialize. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. Good social contacts are good for memory too: so make and keep good friends. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Nothing to worry about, it happens sometimes as your muscles are stretched. Just apply warm mustard oil over stretched part and do moderate workout. The stiffness will go down slowly in one to two days.

My father is 57 years old and he is depressed for last one month. And he is not taking decissions he is always in oscillatng mind. He is always walking inside the house. He is not sitting in one place and not sleeping. He is always blabbering. What to do for this? please tell me a solution.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Take him to a psychiatrist, immediately. I think that whatever is stressing him is going beyond his reserves and he is just flipping it. He is displaying classic signs of a break down, if he does not seek help soon. He must also meet with a counselor while on medication and the combination will give him the best chance of fast and sure recovery. Speed is of essence: earlier the intervention, the better. But I suspect he has delayed it, without your knowledge, more than necessary and may be at the brink of failing because of it. Do you know what happened a month ago? that may have just been the trigger though, and maybe he has had sustained pressure that has taken its toll now. He is deteriorating fast and that is why the urgency. Men often do not reveal the problems they have in time, and this does contribute to their ill health being more sever due to the delay.

What is Social Anxiety Phobia? + It's Causes

CERTIFICATE COURSE IN HOMOEOPATHIC CARDIOLOGY, M.D.(HOMOEO.)PSYCHIATRY, B.H.M.S.(BACHELOR OF HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINE & SURGERY.)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
What is Social Anxiety Phobia? + It's Causes

Social anxiety disorder is a chronic mental health condition in which a person has excessive and unreasonable fear of certain social situations. Anxiety and self-consciousness arise from a fear of being scrutinized, embarrassed or judged by others. The fear may be made worse by a lack of social skills or experience in social situations. This persistent anxiety can build into a panic attack, and the affected person may start avoiding social situations under extreme distress. People with social anxiety disorder also suffer anticipatory anxiety, which is the fear of a situation even before it happens. In many cases, the person is aware that the fear is unreasonable and overblown, yet is unable to overcome it.

Like many other mental health conditions, social anxiety disorder arises from a complex interaction of environment and genes. The possible causes are:
 

  • Inherited traits - Genetic factors may contribute to the development of social anxiety disorder if it is present in a first-degree relative (parents, siblings or child).
  • Brain structure - Nuclei shaped part of the brain called amygdala may play a role in controlling the fear response. People with overactive amygdala may have a heightened fear response, increasing anxiety in social situations.
  • Environmental factors - Social anxiety disorder may be a learned behavior. You may develop the condition after witnessing the anxious behavior of others. Also, there may be an association between social anxiety disorder and overprotective parents wanting to control their children.

Social anxiety disorder is the second most common type of anxiety disorder, which most often surfaces in adolescence or early adulthood. It is more common in women than in men. There is no way to predict what will cause social anxiety disorder, but some steps can be taken to reduce the impact of symptoms by getting help early instead of delaying, managing stress in daily life and avoiding unhealthy substances like alcohol, drugs and caffeine.

Dear lybrate-user, first very importantly you need to work on your stress, because your mind controls your body and if your mind is stressed your body will be affected. You can just start simply by having a glass of whey protein with milk (you can have optimum nutririon whey protein) in breakfast with omlette and multigrain bread sandvich. Follow it for 1 month.

Congrats for quitting both habits. This itself is amazing and commendable. In fact the skin tone is the least of your concerns because you have saved your life and perhaps that of your family if and when you start one. This skin tone is not likely to have been caused by your habits: tobacco will cause wrinkles; and unless you have drunk so much for a long time and caused damage to your liver you may have some patches on the skill due to that. So I do not really think that your attributing that to the habit is realistic. But you can do other things, for example, do not expose your skin directly to sunlight and apply lime juice, potato slices, and cucumber slices to the dark areas separately, regularly.

Hi. I'm 19 years old girl. I'm a first years medical student .I have my final examination within a week. And now it all happened to me. So I need physiological assistance. I had a guy as a best friend. I love him a lot. We were even physically intimate. There are lot of memories we shared together. Only till last week, when I proposed him, he said he can't accept me, since he has a girlfriend. He started to ignore me since then.& afterwards clearly mentioned he doesn't want to keep any connection with me. This was too shocking for me. I'm now in a state of mental depression. I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can't study, I can't do anything. There's no way left to get back to him. The memories are haunting me like he'll. I'm afraid I will not pass the examination in this way. Please help me as fast as possible so that I may continue my normal life forgetting him. Please help me out.

First of all stop thinking that you are a looser or a victim. You are none of these. What has happened is just an end result of what you had chosen for yourself- I mean - it is you who had willingly taken a decision to carry on with this friend to whatever limitsyou had chosen. You accepted him. Today, he is no longer interested, so please accept that also- this is what life has returned -it could be good or it has turned out to be bad, gather yourself once again and become the bright student who got admission in medical, why waste life on someone who is least bothered, so, think about other people who really love you, do not want anything else but your good-like your parents.

I am a bds student so lot of are for studying but I can't remember much more what I am studying. And inside my head sometime a vibration is feeling.

Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. The vibration feeling could be due to anxiety and stress. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.
