Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control. First of all. Think about 1. What caused your stress (make a guess if you’re unsure) 2. How you felt, both physically and emotionally 3. How you acted in response 4. What you did to make yourself feel better Here you have not mentioned anything in detail. So initially you may try some relaxation techniques Relax. You deserve it, it's good for you, and it takes less time than you think. Here comes some relaxation techniques. Try them 1. Meditation: A few minutes of practice per day can help ease. “Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,”  It's simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting -- out loud or silently -- a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” Place one hand on your belly to sync the mantra with your breaths. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds. 2. Breathe Deeply Take a 5-minute break and focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth. 3. Reach Out Your social network is one of your best tools for handling stress. Talk to others -- preferably face to face, or at least on the phone. Share what's going on. You can get a fresh perspective while keeping your connection strong. There are many more techniques. Try this first and observe whether there is a change.

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. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Why should you concentrate on depression? Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. The key to depression recovery is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Take things one day at a time and reward yourself for each accomplishment. The steps may seem small, but they’ll quickly add up. And for all the energy you put into your depression recovery, you’ll get back much more in return. Don’t feel guilty about anything. So, don’t seek for the symptoms of depression and just throw out the thought that you are depressed.

Hello lybrate-user It happens. It has happened with me too. I was never brilliant like you, I was always very average. I managed to keep my scores as per my parent’s expectations. Throughout my teens I had planned that I would join the army, but when the time came I couldn’t. I just couldn’t. Not because I chickened out but because of some ailment that struck me at that time. Moreover, I had a well paying job so the burning passion and will to join the army slowly faded. When I was preparing myself to join the army, I had somehow become very brave and fearless. I started behaving like as if I can conquer anything in this world. My thought process had changed and though I wasn’t a very intelligent person, my analytical skills had improved. In my head I was to become the best cadet my country had ever seen which is why I was training myself to become the best. But once I realized that the dream is unlikely to come true, all the intelligence and daredevilry started to get diluted. I slowly started to lose the courage that I had built all these years. The fears that I had overcome during that phase all came back to me and I became the same old me. Whenever I would try to do things that I did back then, I would just fail. I couldn’t understand how to get that fearlessness in me again. I realized that I had lost my confidence. I was no longer the valiant soldier that I thought I was and that struck me hard. Now since I had planned to join the army and sadly things didn’t really work out, I was left stranded. I had no back up plan for my career. My friends were all pursing professional courses and I was left with nothing but a monotonous job. Then one day I pondered really hard over my situation and thought of the one thing that I enjoyed doing the most. Writing popped up in my head even before I could complete the question to myself. And I thought that there’s no use following the herd and holding a degree that every Tom Dick and Harry does. Let’s do something relying on my talent. Even though my first job was totally into finance, it did involve some writing and that was what gave the kick start to this new journey of mine. I got myself a degree that would validate my writing skills. And today, I am working as a writer with a company and trust me I am getting paid almost as much as the MBA's. Despite spending so much on a professional course like MBA my colleagues are getting paid just 1k or 2k more than me. No doubt I sometimes look at my own siblings and feel that a career in finance could have fetched me more that what I get today but I know the facade of liking and working in a field you don’t enjoy working in will definitely die down one day. I’ll narrate one incident here. In my office my colleague once asked me about my siblings and I said that my elder sister is a Chartered Accountant (CA) and my younger brother is preparing for his CA exams. My colleague then casually asked me that why I didn’t pursue the same. I clearly stated that I hated Maths and would never do something that would involve me dealing with numbers. Though my answer was 100% true still somewhere inside me I felt why didn’t I also do CA? If I work hard may be I could have crossed all the levels and slowly I would’ve started to like the profession. Days passed and that thought would constantly bother me. Not that I hate my job, I love what I do, but I don’t know why I felt so. Then one day, I was assigned a task wherein I had to explain a simple mathematical solution through writing. The writing part went smoothly, but when it came to calculation….Oh boy! I started to sweat in a fully air-conditioned room. The calculation was for children aged 13-14 years but I just couldn’t figure out what was to be done. Luckily, the person sitting besides me noticed my nervousness and asked me what the matter was, I explained it to him and he offered to explain the calculations to me. It hardly took him 5 minutes to complete the full solution. I thanked him and he left for the day. When I got back to my work I couldn’t help laughing at myself just then I though in my mind, “Baby….you are so much in the right field”. I hadn’t really chosen this field, the field chose me and I cannot thank God enough to have guided me to where I am today. Whichever field you choose for yourself, just make sure that you really like that work and you won’t mind working hard in that field. But do make a choice asap, do not waste time trying to figure out your best possible deal. If you are still confused then just take a leap of faith (like I did) and get into whichever field that comes to your mind first, have faith in your God and move forward in the direction that life leads you. Trust me if you work hard, with utmost sincerity you efforts will surely be rewarded. AND FOR THE CONFIDENCE BOOST UP YOU CAN TRY THESE THINGS: Just as I am sure that self confidence is important I am also sure that you have been trying to find useful tips that really work without any luck. 10 killer tips for building self confidence Identify the problematic areas: You might be very confident at one area of your life (example: browsing the web) and totally not confident in another area (example public speaking). The first step for building self confidence is knowing which areas need to be improved. Identity the missing skills: Lets suppose your problem was with public speaking. In such a case the main reason you don't feel confident doing it is because you lack certain skills (for example: knowing how to use body language to appear confident, how to select the right words that grab people's attention and how to control fear and anxiety while performing). Acquire the missing skills: After you identity the missing skills you need to start learning them one by one until you master them. Get exposed to your fears once again: After you acquire the missing skills start repeating the things that you previously didn't feel confident about. The main goal behind this step is to prove to your subconscious mind that you are now way better than you were before Fix your perception errors: Most people don't see reality but they just see a version that matches their beliefs (for example: people were laughing at me because I am a boring person). When you Learn how to filter these perception errors your confidence level will start rising on its own The only person you need to impress: In order to believe you are worthy the only person you need to impress is your subconscious mind. The more you do things right (after acquiring the needed skills the more will your subconscious mind believe that you are worthy.) Read about rejection psychology: Yes brilliant people, good looking ones and those who are really good get rejected. You just didn't know it! check out those articles for more information: Does rejection mean you are ugly and Do good people get rejected Keep a compliment journal: Whenever you get a genuine compliment write it down in the compliment journal. Read this journal at least once a week. Beliefs become stronger when you repeat them but this happens only when you repeat things that you believe in Affirmations don't work unless: Your subconscious mind will refuse to accept affirmations if the beliefs you were repeating weren't convincing. In other words, if you believe you have low confidence then repeating an affirmation such as "i am confident" will actually harm your self esteem GOD BLESS YOU.

Hello, My age is 19 years. I am the student of B. E. I am suffering from mental problem. I think its an ocd. I always repeat the actions and thoughts. For example- if I have thought of buying a new purse. Then after sometime I will have doubt that did I actually thought of buying a new purse or not. So I again and again repeat that what actually have I thought. And the worst situation is that I always have that sensation that if I will not repeat something bad will happen with me or with my family. So I repeat and repeat. After when I clear that yes the thought was of the purse buying then immediately I should remember god. If god not came in my mind I repeat again until god comes in my mind or my family members.

Yes, these are the classic symptoms of ocd. You must immediately meet a counselor and a doctor for follow-up treatment. Since you are young the possibilities are immense if you cooperate. Ocd is a fear based reaction and can be quite debilitating if neglected. So you could see where this fear has originated and your parents help and involvement is recommended. They will have an insight as to how and where the fear came about. If you deal with the fear, the ocd which is a symptom of that fear can be dealt with more effectively. In the meantime you can build your constitution and your emotional make up with some regular physical exercises, proper sleep, and a healthy diet. Your emotional fitness can be developed with the counselor.

If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Do you recall any stress in the last 6 months? although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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.

The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Dear Mr. Dhawan, Any particular molecule cant be claimed as superior as response varies from person to person. One agent that is good for a particular person may not work that well for other. However, clozapine is one molecule that is considered superior to all others in resistant cases and is generally given when other medicines fail. Partial agonists such as aripiprazole have a less side effects but sometimes efficacy is found wanting. Your patient will need evaluation and appropriate suggestion. Take care!

, Is there any medicine which can stop drinking liquor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
There is no medicine to stop drinking liquor. There is however, antabuse, which is administered to an addict with his full knowledge and cooperation. The reason is that after taking this medication, if he ever takes even a small quantity of liquor, he can have very adverse reactions that may entail hospitalizations too. This is used to curb his impulses. This can be obtained from a psychiatrist?s prescription only and has to be responsibly taken and administered.

I drink 3 times a week and my age is 23 so do i have any side effects for this in future?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well you do not state how much you drink each time. If you take two drinks at a time, then it is not a problem immediately. If you do not have much self-control in other areas, then one day you will start losing control in your drinking too. Or if you are susceptible to stress, you will increase your drinking. If you have any preconditions to addictions, you will be prone to increase the quantity and frequency of drinking. There are two aspects to consider for addictions: dependence and tolerance. The former is when the mind and the body become too dependent on alcohol to face life, or situations, or stresses. Then you cannot give it up easily or function normally without it. The second feature is that of tolerance, which is common to all addictive substances: as time goes by you will need more quantities to get the same effect. In which case, you will gradually increase the consumption of alcohol over time till you become enslaved to it. If you try to stop it, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be very severe too. Regarding side effects there are many, if you go into heavy drinking: you will get an enlarged heart, brain damage with heavy drinking, late to work and lots of absenteeism, accidents while driving or otherwise, marriage problems, health difficulties including cancer of several organs, loss of employments, loss of libido and sexual functions, loss of opportunities etc. The list can go on and on. If you want to read more about addictions you may contact me with a payment of Rs. 250/- for my book on it. Postage is free.

A) eat 5 gm of ajwain seeds along with 5 gm of jaggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of trifala juice along with 20 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result.
