Both encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger, and the process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to another, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to what was lost, and other factors.

I am 34 years married man with a daughter 5 months old. I am a medical sales professional managing a team of 6 members. While trying out to clean the corruption in the team. I have to take some harsh decision and change few team members in the team. As a result the performance get a blow even after giving 100% effort. Over last one and half years, I am wrecked both in my professional field and personal life with my parents. I have become very stressed short tempered. I fails to express my thoughts, ideas, feelings and concerts. People misunderstands me and my views. My division making power is getting creepled. All steps seems wrong. I am on the edge of getting fired. My managers who were happy 1 year back who all were backing my every decisions now finding faults in my every steps. Though I live in the same house with my parents still we have no communication. Because I couldn't agree to there preset perception, old false believe. I couldn't convince them the correct things. Very small these us becoming a big issues. The problem started when my wife got pregnant and I decided to send her to her parents for safe gestation period against my parents will. They wanted the delivery to be in my area. Now there is miles of gaps between me and my parents. My wife and me daughter is in our house with my parents but still l am deserted. Please help me.

Dear lybrate-user, all your intentions seem to be good and leaning towards fairness, caring and supporting each other. However you must realise that our decisions impact others as well and if they are not satisfied with your decisions, they have a right to voice their concerns just as you have a right. 2. Every story/ picture/ incident has various perspectives and angles to look at from. You seem to be seeing the issue of corruption from your perspective but have not taken into consideration that people whom you fire have families to support or that firing will impact them adversely and the team in number of ways. These employees might have been taking money on the side. But we're they productive and the company grew because of their hard work. Did your bosses want your team to be fired or they were willing to accept some faults over some strengths. You need to see the larger picture and then take a decision, which is wise and workable in the longer run. You seem to have gained a lot of unpopularity over 1 year time. Please examine your actions, and try to see them from the eyes and perspectives of others as well because you don't take any action in a vacuum thinking that others will be fine with all your decisions. Please learn to weigh the pros and cons of your decisions and take action after that. 2. Regarding your wife, again your intention was good to let her have rest and a safe delivery, but your parents were against this decision. Did you try to find out their reasons. Even if they are old and false beliefs. Who are you to judge them? sooner or later. What you believe in will become outdated. So should you not get respect and acceptance for that? their lives have been spent seeing that daughter in laws live with inlaws and deliver. Maybe they feared social ostracization from their community and peers? isn't that a genuine concern? maybe they are dependant on your wife to have their needs met. Isn't it best to find another route so that your wife and they both are taken care of? an open communication always helps to clear doubts and any misunderstanding. However if your parents are very rigid in their thinking and you don't find reasonable reasoning working out with them, then telling them that: you really wished that your wife could stay back and help them, but she's not well and needs rest as well, and if you agreed for this amicable, you would be really happy and peaceful. You could have looked for an alternate source of help etc for your parents. Basically, please remember to include others in decisions which are very important and will impact others as well. Learn to be flexible, tolerant and understanding. Sticking only to your principals and working will not take you far. Living in society with its negatives and positives is a fine balance which you need to achieve to be a successful individual.

I have been recently suffering from a depressed mood &getting easily irritated. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Please start counseling immediately and avail of the help you need to handle the daily challenges and stresses of a person in depression in order to cope with them effectively. Being in depression your sleep patterns will often get terribly disturbed. The natural wake up cycle for the human is between 4 and 6 am. Many people who are depressed do not adhere to this regimen and the whole day can then become so out of sync that you will suffer jetlag-like stress and will not ever know about it and you will get irritable. Do get back to the natural rhythm soon. You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night?s sleep by going to bed early, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don?t wait for others to help, if they are not there for you. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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.

As far as the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis is considered please understand that it is an auto-immune disorder, whose treatment is not mentioned in principles in any treatment modalities. However, ayurveda along with panchakarma therapy (bio-purification) would certainly help the patient as this treatment will be at cellular level taking all the toxins away from the body at the same time bringing the inflammations also down from the body hence reducing the pain. The holistic approach is the best therefore to treat rheumatoid athritis. The best treatments for arthritis pt in panchakarma is abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. These procedures reduce the stiffness of the body and relax the whole body.

4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid Stress For A Better Sex Life!

4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid Stress For A Better Sex Life!

Stress and sex is a bad combination, as it is a well known fact that it is because of stress that a person's love and intimate life often suffers. Listed below are few ways in which stress can affect your sex life:

  1. Negative body image: The hormones associated with stress are capable of affecting your metabolism. If you gain weight or feel sluggish, it makes you feel bad about your own body, which in turn hinders your desire to initiate sex. A lower self-image leads to less amount of sex and in turn, creates relationship problems. One of the main sources of stress can be your relationship; if you cannot nurture it, it might lead to elevation of stress.
  2. Negative effect on libido: Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by stress. It is needed by the body in small doses and over short periods of time. Increase in stress over a period of time results in increased levels of cortisol, which lead to suppression of sex hormones. Lower amount of sex hormones results in lower libido.
  3. Excessive drinking: It is of common knowledge that people drink to relieve stress. Maximum times, increased stress levels lead to excessive drinking. Men have difficulty having erections after they drink too much. In women, excess alcohol causes dehydration, resulting in reduced lubrication. These problems lead to dull sex.
  4. Impact on fertility and menstrual cycle: In women, stress affects the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the thyroid, ovaries and adrenal glands. Improper functioning of the ovaries can adversely affect the menstrual cycle. Periods might become irregular or menstruation might stop. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

You can control your smoking with your dedication and strong will power. Nicotine withdrawals just take 72 hours to go. If you can stay away from nicotine for 72 hours one hour at a time you can not only control your smoking but can be able to stop it forever and can lead a very happy and meaningful life. Just don't smoke and stay healthy.

My Daughter 2.5 years old has very bad cough with Vomiting. Given all kinds of syrup. Nothing help her out. Very tensed. Do not know what to do. Please suggest me something.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
I understand your worry and concern as a parent. Mostly her vomiting is due to cough. I do hope you have consulted pediatrician ans giving her medicine as per recommendation. Other than that. Give her more liquid diet instead of solid. Many times food particles could cause vomiting. Also as she is very young. As a parents it is important that you stay calm and engage her in some fun activity. Laugh with her tell her stories or what ever she enjoys. Positive and calmer environment around her will help her stay calmer and help in healing process. Support each other as a couple to reduce your anxiety and do everything that needs to be done medically. What ever virus or bacteria that is causing her cough will take. Its course before she will start recovering. Make sure she is hydrated properly. Even one spoon water and electrolyte at a time will also help. Hope she feels better soon. Wishing you all very best.

I don't know whether it's psychological or not but sometimes I feel that I am not able understand what's written or sometimes being spoken, especially in pressure situations such as exams, interviews etc. I get afraid of doing anything thinking that I would not be able to understand. I feel like sometimes there is no communication between the brain and body and I feel blank. For example like when I am reading a question the answer will click in my mind but it will just vanish as if I didn't read the question. It takes time for me to understand things correctly. I don't know that whether this is happening due to over thinking or is there actually some problem with me.

Do not over think. Come out of your shell and enjoy some good time with friends. Do take good care of your health by following good discipline. You can overcome your problems by being confident about yourself. Do discuss your small problems with your friends and parents so that you can take their genuine opinion. Eat healthy food and do workout ( exercise everyday for 1 hour). Soon you will feel good but yourself. Read good inspirational books or movies that can uplift your mood. Do yoga everyday. Sleep for 7-8hrs daily for the body and mind to clear up and feel fresh. Keep yourself cheerful and do your best. Follow up after some weeks for your feedback and any future guidance.

General Physician,
You forget the past as it is past and meditate and do yoga . Try these steps to study. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear sir, from one I had tingling in head mostly and some times body. I consult doctor he told me it because of anxiety and he had given tablet for depression and nerve relief but don't cure. Please suggest me, was anxiety was big Problem.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Instead of worrying or being anxious, meditate and feel peaceful and happy. It has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So take to and feel peaceful and happy by finding and reading books, either from internet. Hope this helps, sincerely.
