Management of stress:-

Stress management is an art. Management starts long before appearance of stressful condition.A wise man often anticipates the possible future situation and prepares himself accordingly. For example you study well whole year to avoid stress at annual exam time. This preparation for facing stress is the first step.

Then comes the question what to do in sudden unexpected situations. Look as a human being you may not capable of dealing with every environmental stressors. Whenever an un-expected situation arises you must seek help from others. There are people wiser and mightier than you to solve your problem, you must approach them without hesitation.

During stressful conditions, you should adopt problem solving approach. This means you should be thinking about the ways to get out of the situation. You may have various options, and you should choose the most adequate option to solve your problems.

Never ever blame your supports (Your dear ones, friends, wellwishers etc), rather be thankful to them for their kind help. Try to come into your regular routine at the earliest. Take healthy timely meals, adequate rest, leisure and sleep.

Remind yourself of what’s going right-Usually people are stressed about just one or two areas of their life. If they only took a moment to look at the big picture, they would see that the vast majority of their life is going well. Grab a pen and some paper and write a list of all the stuff that’s going well in your life. (You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how long the list becomes.). Now stick that list next to your computer, so that you see it all day long. Watch how quickly your perspective changes and your mood lifts. Get ultra clear on your to do list. Clarity enhances serenity. If you’re stressed by how much you have to do, get precise about exactly what tasks must be done (You’ll often realize it’s less than you thought). Once you’ve created your list put a circle around the truly crucial tasks. Most of the time stressed executives have exaggerated just how much they have to do. Getting it down on paper helps you see that mountain of work may be smaller than you thought. Try the 3 breath release. Take a deep breath. Then as you exhale imagine all your problems and stress leaving you. Do this just 3 times. Too much of stress leads to sleep problems. Please consult a Clinical Psychologist.

Dear lybrate user it's natural to be anxious but if it's happening without any real reason then it should be controlled. You can try to keep yourself busy by engaging yourself into fruitful activity which you feel help to boost your mood and distract you from negative anxious thoughts. It can be any vocation, any hobby. Try playing some games like puzzles, crosswords. It will help you keeping your mind away from anxious thoughts. Try to identify some triggers which lead to such thoughts like when, where, at what time, in which situation you get such thoughts more often. Try make a note of it. Note down your feelings at that time. If we arr able to identify the triggering points then we can learn to avoid and escape such things or try to be alert about them. Try some of these strategies. I hope it will help. Thanks.

I am addicted to watch porn. I really want to avoid that but can't control myself. How to avoid that?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
I am addicted to watch porn.
I really want to avoid that but can't control myself.
How to avoid that?
Hi there, Signs and Symptoms of Porn Addiction Excessive viewing of pornography. The definition of “excessive” depends on what you consider healthy, or it is the point at which pornography starts to have a negative impact on some aspect of your (or someone else’s) life. Watching pornography interferes with normal daily behavior or responsibilities. More time spent watching pornography, or searching for more stimulating types of pornography, is needed to get you aroused or to climax, i. E. You develop a tolerance. There is a sense of emotional distress, or feeling of withdrawal, when porn use is stopped. Continued use pornography despite serious consequences (e. G. Loss of relationship or job, contraction of a sexually transmitted disease or “STD”). Compulsive masturbating. Sexual dysfunction (e. G. Impotence, premature ejaculation). Use of pornography negatively affects your relationships, for example: It is more difficult to become aroused by your partner. Romantic or sexual behavior between you and your partner changes (e. G. Becomes more aggressive, dominant, or emotionally disconnected). You watch porn as a way to alter your mood (e. G. Obtain a “high”) or avoid other unpleasant feelings, like anxiety or depression. What Causes Porn Addiction? Porn addiction, like other substances or “things” that people can become addicted to, can be understood through principles of “operant conditioning.” This is where a certain behavior, watching porn in this case, is “reinforced,” or rewarded, which in turn makes you want to do it again (and again). Lots of different things can be reinforcing, and thus influence our behavior, but porn can be especially reinforcing because the reward taps into a very basic instinctual drive—sex. Therefore, it is very easy to become addicted to porn—it is accessing a fundamental (and very enjoyable) natural drive. It is also much easier to obtain than going out and finding a “mate” to fulfill this drive. The problem occurs when seeking sexual pleasure becomes excessive, impulsive, or comes at the expense of other valued behaviors. Then we might say that one has a porn addiction. Other Factors Influencing Porn Addiction Biological You may have a genetic predisposition to impulsivity, emotion dysregulation, or sensation-seeking behavior. You may have a predisposition to other characteristics that are associated with sexual addiction, like anxiety or depression. As you might expect, higher levels of sex hormones like testosterone or estrogen can affect libido. If you are inclined towards impulsive behavior and have high levels of sex-related hormones, you may be more likely to engage in excessive or compulsive porn watching. Psychological Early-life environmental factors, including adverse events like abuse or exposure to sexual content, can contribute to some of the underlying traits involved in porn addiction behaviors. Mental health: Anxiety. Depression. Personality disorders. Poor impulse control. Performance anxiety. Other mental health issues might contribute to porn addiction behaviors. Social Rejection in relationships and social circles can lead to other, less healthy ways to find sexual gratification. Social isolation: Not only does social isolation increase one’s likelihood of seeking inappropriate ways of being sexually gratified, it also leads to a host of other problems—like depression and physical maladies—that can contribute to porn addictions or unhealthy sex behaviors. Peer influence: If others around you are doing something, you are more likely to do it, too. Having a friend, or a group of friends, for example, who engage in excessive porn viewing can influence your behavior. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Anorexia Nervosa - 5 Ways it Can be Treated!

Phd, Mphil, MSc, Bed, BA (Clinical Psychologist and Parent Child Relationship Expert)
Psychologist, Noida
Anorexia Nervosa - 5 Ways it Can be Treated!

Anorexia nervosa is a type of eating disorder, which falls under the category of psychological disorders. The patient becomes extremely thin and has an unreal perception of body weight. This unreal perception involves a fear of becoming fat. The primary symptoms are fasting, an aversion for food, obsessive thought about weight loss etc.

Here are the usual treatments for anorexia nervosa according to the progression of the disease.

  1. Medications: The first thing your doctors will do is prescribe medications to make sure that the patient has come back to a health condition, which is stable. This is because anorexia causes heart problems, depression and osteoporosis among other physical complications. The doctor will be giving separate medications for all of them. Once you start feeling better, the doctor will stop giving you medications. Sometimes medication also has to be given for malnutrition or starvation if the disease has set in far too deep.
  2. Counselling: The primary type of counselling, which will take place is nutritional counselling. Dietitians can help you with this, as they teach healthy eating patterns and know how to make you follow it therefore, this is a crucial part of the recovery process which should not be neglected.
  3. Therapy: Firstly, therapy and counselling are different treatment procedures. The main difference between the two is the focus of the treatment. Therapy is done by psychologists who help deal with what causes your hate of eating and try to eliminate these mental issues while counselling is done by counsellors who are there to help sort out your eating disorders. 
  4. Nutritional rehabilitation: This is a more serious form of counselling. The counsellors generally try unconventional methods at this stage to make sure that you are eating properly and will eat properly in the future. This is because by this stage the progression of the disease is more serious and weight has to be gained immediately.
  5. Starvation treatment: By this stage, nutrition has to be given in the form of fluids and you will be having severe health problems all of which need medication.

Yesterday I said that I have a concentration problem, that means I can't concentrate on ot her thing apart from my job, basically I want to say that I can't concentrate on my studies .what should I do to get out of this problem?

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.
