Hi lybrate-user, Stress and tension has become common among software professional due to many reason like workaholic, continuous work pressure, no breaks, no relaxation. I wanted you to take break at least a day or two in a month and fully relaxing with family, movie or drive to a favourite place. Take a break once in three months at least for a week go outstation or wherever you prefer and enjoy. In the office take 5 to 10 minutes break and relax yourself. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Take care. Be cool. With regards,

How Anxiety Affects Your Sleep?

How Anxiety Affects Your Sleep?

Anxiety and stress are the biggest roadblocks of sound sleep for many individuals. It is estimated that three out of ten individuals can’t sleep due to anxiety related disorders. The mind starts racing as soon one tries to sleep. The anxiousness results in increased restlessness, thereby, affecting sleep. Most adults face this problem at least once in a week. There are many individuals whose sleep is affected more than once a week due to anxiety.

A study revealed that more approximately 42 % women and 52% men find it difficult to focus on their work the very next day. In a case, anxiety affects your sleep occasionally, these simple methods would help you to do away with sleeplessness:

  1. Exercise: It is a very old practice and most people already know it. Daily exercise, moderate workout, brisk walking, jogging etc. can keep stress away and helps to improve sleep. Daily exercise can relax your nerves, loosen body muscles, relaxes the brain and helps to keep stress away. People with chronic insomnia have found to be exercising beneficial. In a case of an intense work-out session, it should be ensured that the body is rested at least twice in a week.
  2. Wind down before sleep: A bedtime routine is important for a sound sleep. Healthy practices such as taking shower, playing quiet music, reading a book etc. can help soothe your nerves and get can hellp you sleep better and quickly. These activities should be done at least half an hour before sleep. Soon it becomes a habit and helps an individual sleep without stress and anxiety.
  3. Meditate: Quieting the mind is an art. Yoga can greatly you help to achieve this without much hassle. If meditation looks like too taxing, sitting quietly in an isolated place for 5 odd minutes and inhaling and exhaling air will also do the trick. Yoga is a thousand-year-old stress buster mechanism. It has fetched fruitful results for many.
  4. Do not undertake stressful activities before bed: It becomes obvious not to get into any heated arguments, reading a stressful news, undertaking any stressful activity etc before bed. This will ensure that a person can relax before sleep and the adrenaline levels are at a normal level. It will ensure sound sleep for an individual.
  5. Create a to-do list: A to-do list takes care of daily works to be done. This can organize the day and help a person establish everything he needed to, throughout the course of the day. This will also help an individual refrain from any stress which in turn will help in sound sleep.
  6. Don’t lie awake: If it becomes difficult to sleep, it makes sense not to lie awake. Instead few things that are relaxing can be done in the interim. It will soothe the nerve and help to catch sleep sooner than later.

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

I am 42 years old man. I use to smoke so get a consistent cough in my chest .i need some remedy and medicine.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Nicotine is the active ingredient in cigarette and chewable tobacco. But there are hundreds of other carcinogens and psycho-active substances and they are highly dangerous to the physical and psychological health a person. People can smoke as unhealthy way of coping stress, part of nicotine withdrawal, to overcome short term depression and anxiety (which it worsens over a longer term). To overcome this the withdrawal needs to be addressed and anti craving medications started and comorbid anxiety, etc like psychological and constipation, etc like physical symptoms needs to be treated. So you kindly consult a psychiatrist to stop smoking. All the best.

Hi, females usually have plenty of mood swings due to hormonal imbalances, especiallly during this age. Apart from this, if there are some stressors like family issues, love issues, or stress at the office, which you are finding difficult to handle, you need to share them with either your friends or family and try to sort out the things with them. Make sure your work is not affected. In case your problem is slowly affecting your work, then probably you need some professional help.

I am in a very poor mental condition. My results of class 12 final exams are bad and I have failed to keep up to the expectations of my parents and teachers. I blame myself for this. No one else is to blame. My family life is bit complicated. My mother single handedly bought me up. I was a topper of my school. But then suddenly I suffered some depression in class 10 but recovered after that. But my entire class 11 and 12 studies were very poor as I was distracted all the time. I am addicted to smartphone for I have no friends. I have not visited any place since 2010. It is not possible for us to travel. It is better if I do not talk about my father. He have beaten me and harassed me since childhood. I and my mother do not have money so are dependent on my father. Only for money. Apart from that we have no relation with my father. I cannot concentrate on anything. I always feel like crying. I think sooner or later I have to give up. I cannot take this embarrassment any longer. I cannot find any meaning in life. The last few days have been a living death for me. I am writing this out of utter helplessness.

Replace smoking with higher taste like" transcendental meditation. When you get higher taste, the lower taste of intoxicants like nicotine would no longer be able to distract you.

Yes this is frustrating for anyone. You need to begin with open communication about sexual relationships and creating bonding between you and your spouse. Basically you need to ask her about her thoughts and feelings regarding lovemaking i. E. Sexual intercourse. Such issues are common in many girls/women since beginning of humanity due to apprehensions and fear about sexuality. It happens due to lack of quality understanding of basics of sexual relationships. What men/women know and understand about sexuality and relationships is via half-hearted hearsay guidance and porn watching. Also sexuality is stigmatized as bad since childhood specially for women. Solutions lie in open communication and interaction with an expert sexologist along with your wife. Sexual relationships in couples is a part of life and basis of lifetime bonding. Therefore it needs to begin with proper understanding and in right way where both man and wife enjoy in a quality way. Move on for proper guidance with expert. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. From the given description it seems like psychosis. Psychosis may occur as a result of a psychiatric illness such as schizophrenia. In other instances, it may be caused by a health condition, medication or drug use. Possible symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, talking incoherently and agitation. The person with the condition usually isn't aware of his or her behaviour. Treatment may include medication and talk therapy.

Dear Lybrate user, At your friends age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi, I do appreciate your concern for your boyfriend. Considering his symptoms and the fact that he has even suicidal wishes, the best thing that you can do right now is to take him to a psychiatrist and seek professional help. Treatment with medications will help him get out of this dark phase. In addition, you should make sure you are there for him when he needs to vent out his feelings. Listen to him emphatically. Make sure, his family is also involved and that he is not left alone for maximum possible time. I do hope that with your help, your boyfriend will be able to fight depression. Best wishes.
