Dear, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the? fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or? chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

I am in deeply depression since 8 months. I am staying single & unmarried. My family is depending on me only. My earnings are not much saving but I can handle any kind criticalities. I am the decision maker in my family. Now I am afraid to make decisions & take action on which happenings on my family. Present situation is that I am not able to concentrate to my personality development. I don't trust people much & I don't like to dependent on anyone. If I trust, I always try to be with them only and I can do anything for them (if not possible by me also). But they feel like bored & casually. I tried to avoid loneliness. I used to play chess most with online users. So that I get some relax for while but how can I play whole day? I also did whole day for some days. I did reading stories now I feel like these all stories I read already. I used to listening songs with high volumes but it seems like ear can damage. Now a days I am getting angry on everyone with small reasons. I feel that I wanna cry loudly, I wanna laugh bigger, I wanna shout very loud voice, I wanna fight. But I can not do these all things. I have respect in society & my office. I did not used at least rubbish language & I did not rude also. If I share my problems with anyone, they says me like its time to start drink, get married, get dating kind of, go for outings, and so many. I don't tried to make nonsense of myself because if anything goes wrong with me, the effect will be on my entire family. That's why I am so careful myself.

Mr. lybrate-user the complaints you have described clearly states that you are suffering from clinical depression. Unable to concentrate on work, not interested in previous pleasurable activities, feeling loneliness, irritability and crying spells all are classical symptoms of depression. Well stress, work environment, family pressure all can burden any individual. You at an young age are seeming to carry the burden of your whole family which is very much appreciable. My first advice to you is avoid using Internet and gadgets to make you better, they may worsen you in turn. Kindly don't use smoking and alcohol, particularly when depressed which can worsen you further. Try to be with friends and family. Spend time in places were people are engaged like malls and parks. Take a small break from the hectic schedule you are having. Maintain proper sleep pattern. Don't skip food. Practice exercises and yoga if possible, they are very essential to refresh ourselves. Love Yourself. Also kindly consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Dear lybrate-user, Are you screaming or kicking or walking or waking up during the nightmares? If not, they are just dreams. Does not need any major treatment. In shift workers, the circadian rhythm gets disturbed. The sleep wake cycle is also disturbed. So you may be waking up during dream stage of sleep. That is why, you remember the dream and worry about them. Try and find a day shift job. Or try to go to bed at the same time on all days whether week day or week end. Sleep during the day, in a dark room or eyes covered by a cloth. If it bothers your day time activities, please consult a psychiatrist. She/he may prescribe a tablet called Melatonin, a circadian rhythm hormone.

How can I blow away my laziness and upset life I am not able to concentrate on my work help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to develop mind control and meditaion will hlep. CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Severe mental fatigue can be due to stress and anxiety. Do daily pranayam and meditation for 15 min daily morning. Eat fruits daily like apple and pomegranate. Have few almonds daily. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for the same.

This is all stress and worries of life, u are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don' t like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. I think you are stressed out. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear user. I can understand. Don't panic. Obsesive compulsive disorder is Excessive thoughts (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviours (compulsions). Obsessive-compulsive disorder is characterised by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead to compulsive behaviours. OCD often centres on themes such as a fear of germs or the need to arrange objects in a specific manner. Symptoms usually begin gradually and vary throughout life. Treatment includes talk therapy, medication or both. I suggest online psychotherapy. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Nervousness means stress and related anxiety. Anxiety is fear about unknown happening or fear about future. Anxiety about things which we do not know or anxiety about things we are not experienced are common. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. Your lazyness and memory deficiency could be due to anxiety disorder. Please provide me more information. I need to assess your mental health condition. Take care.

This is purely due to some fear or insecurities in your life either actual or perceived. These situations in turn leads to all the symptoms you are experiencing. You need to directly connect either online or in person with an expert Psychotherapist like me to open your heart out to find guidance, support and Psychotherapy as per need. As your investigations like ECG etc are normal, Just calm down, relax and prepare to talk to/meet an expert as i said. You will be definitely alright.

When you start to feel tense and angry, try to isolate yourself for 15 minutes and concentrate on relaxing and calm, steady breathing: Inhale and exhale deeply 3 or 4 times in a row. Count slowly to four as you inhale. Count slowly to eight as you exhale. Focus on feeling the air move in and out of your lungs. Concentrate and feel your ribs slowly rise and fall as you repeat the exercise. Stop and revert to normal breathing if you start to feel dizzy. Take Regular Exercise and Keep Fit The hormones that we release when we are angry - mainly cortisol and adrenaline - are similar to those produced when we are stressed to help us to escape from danger. The release of these hormones is an evolutionary trait, useful if you are trying to run away from a mammoth but maybe less important in modern life where, for most of us, such life-threatening situations do not occur regularly. When you exercise regularly your body learns how to regulate your adrenaline and cortisol levels more effectively. People who are physically fit have more optimum levels of endorphins; endorphins are hormones that make you feel good and therefore less likely to feel angry. Sleep Sleep is an important part of life and good quality sleep can help combat many physical, mental and emotional problems, including anger. When we sleep, the body and mind rest and rebuild damaged cells and neural pathways. We all know that people often feel better after a good night’s sleep. The optimum level of good quality sleep is about 7 hours a night, however everybody is different and you may need more or less than this. Don't Hold Grudges We all need to accept that everybody is different and that we cannot control the feelings, beliefs or behaviours of others. Try to be realistic and accept that people are the way they are, not how we would like them to be. Being resentful or holding a grudge against somebody will increase your anger and make it more difficult to control. You cannot change how other people behave or think but you can change how you deal with others but working on a positive attitude.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Its ok if you cry for awhile as it lowers the stress and relax mind. I would suggest you to join some laughter club or some group who keep on doing some self help activities. This will keep your mind fresh and relax.

You should consult a nutritionist for a detailed program. However here are some basic tips: Modify your diet: increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, salads and reduce processed foods. Weight loss works best when you focus on diet and exercise. If you do not get time to exercise, then do whatever you can in the time you have. For eg: take the stairs instead of lift, travel short distances by walking, park your vehicle away from your destination so you have to walk the rest of the distance, etc. Try some relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation and yoga; these will help to reduce your stress. Ensure you are getting adequate sleep at night. Spend time with family or friends and confide in those whom you are comfortable. Indulge in any activities or hobbies that you like.
