I have a lot of stress because of my job related issues. I am very depressed so what should I do to avoid my depression.
Take charge of your situation. To the extent that this is possible, set and re-set priorities. Take care of important and difficult tasks first. Organize your time. You can be more effective. 2. Be realistic about what you can change. Don't set yourself up for frustration and failure. Set realistic and attainable goals. Do what's possible. Accept the rest. Now you're ready to carry on. 3. Take one task at a time. Divide each large project into smaller, manageable tasks. Make a list of everything, which needs to be done, and the approximate time for finishing each task. Prioritize the tasks. Complete the first task then go on to the next one. Keep the tasks small until you are feeling a sense of accomplishment and control. 4. Be honest with colleagues. This includes the boss. Make it plain you feel in a bind. Chances are others are feeling the same. Don't just complain. Be constructive and make practical suggestions for improvement. 5 slow down. Learn to say" no. Drop activities that are not crucial 6. Recognize danger signs of job stress. Learn the symptoms of job stress and take action as soon as they appear to be getting out of hand. 7. Take care of your physical health. Good physical health increases your stress tolerance. Eat and sleep sensibly. Get plenty of exercise. Cut down or eliminate alcohol, tobacco and drugs, which alter our regular body rhythms and sleep 8. Learn to relax. Find a safety valve, whether it is a sport, hobby, music, reading or just walking. Use it to create a" bridge" between work and home life. 9. Don't neglect your private life. Work out a schedule, which allows you to do justice to both work and personal life. Stick to it. 10. Consider changing or quitting your job. It's a last resort, but still an option to you. If finances will not allow you to consider this, you might choose to concentrate on your personal life. If home life is more productive, more stimulating and more fun, it can take some of the sting out of an unhappy work situation. Seeking professional help is just one more method of coping. Knowing when you need professional help is a sign of strength and self-knowledge, not a weakness. Almost all of us have, at some time, felt depressed over such stressful life events as job loss, illness, or a death in the family. This depression may temporarily affect concentration and performance at work. The situation may be serious if depression persists for more than two weeks.

If he is really cheating you then he doesn't deserve you, move on. Focus on your life and priorities. He is making your life miserable, leaving such a person is better then suffering all the time or for whole life.

What should I be doing to release stress?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
What should I be doing to release stress?
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.

My friend is suffering from depression from last two years. Can I know how I can I make him free from this?

My friend is suffering from depression from last two years.
Can I know how I can I make him free from this?
You cannot 'make' him free from this but you can help him. If he is not willing to do what needs to be done, nothing can help him. These are our limitations. However these are the things he needs to do: I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, 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 scorching 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. 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

DEPRESSION & WOMEN

What is depression?

Everyone sometimes feels sad, but these feelings usually pass after a few days. When a woman has depression, she has trouble with her daily life for weeks at a time. More women than men get depression. It is a serious illness, and most women who have it need treatment to get better.

What are the different forms of depression?

The most common types of depression are:

Major depression?severe symptoms that interfere with a woman's ability to work, sleep, study, eat, and enjoy life. An episode of major depression may occur only once in a person's lifetime. But more often, a person can have several episodes.
Dysthymic disorder or dysthymia?depressive symptoms that last a long time (2 years or longer), but less severe than those of major depression.
Minor depression?similar to major depression and dysthymia, but symptoms are less severe and may not last as long.
What are the signs and symptoms of depression?

Different people have different symptoms. Some symptoms of depression include:

Feeling sad or "empty"
Feeling hopeless, irritable, anxious, or guilty
Loss of interest in favorite activities
Feeling very tired
Not being able to concentrate or remember details
Not being able to sleep, or sleeping too much
Overeating, or not wanting to eat at all
Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
Aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems
What causes depression in women?

Several factors may contribute to depression in women.

Genes?women with a family history of depression may be more likely to develop it than those whose families do not have the illness.

Brain chemistry and hormones?people with depression have different brain chemistry than those of people without the illness. Also, the hormones that control emotions and mood can affect brain chemistry.

During certain times of a woman's life, her hormones may be changing, which may affect her brain chemistry. For example, after having a baby (postpartum period), hormones and physical changes may be overwhelming. Some women experience postpartum depression, a serious form of depression that needs treatment. Other times of hormonal change, such as transition into menopause, may increase a woman's risk for depression.

Stress?loss of a loved one, a difficult relationship, or any stressful situation may trigger depression in some women.

How is depression treated?

The first step to getting the right treatment is to visit a doctor or mental health professional. He or she can do an exam or lab tests to rule out other conditions that may have the same symptoms as depression. He or she can also tell if certain medications you are taking may be affecting your mood.

The doctor should get a complete history of symptoms, including when they started, how long they have lasted, and how bad they are. He or she should also know whether they have occurred before, and if so, how they were treated. He or she should also ask if there is a history of depression in your family.

Medication

Medications called antidepressants can work well to treat depression. They can take several weeks to work. Antidepressants can have side effects including:

Headache.
Nausea, feeling sick to your stomach.
Difficulty sleeping and nervousness.
Agitation or restlessness.
Sexual problems.
Most side effects lessen over time. Talk to your doctor about any side effects you may have. ASK ME ONLINE,PRIVATELY FOR ANY DOUBTS AND HELP

Past life regression may caused for this problems. Remembering past life incidents cannt digest the present days. Unknowingly or irgorance we do some mistakes. It happens. But recollecting it is not good sign of present life situations. Last year incidences we recollect we are not feel happy intelligents feel very uncomfortable. But it is done everyone life. What we do is past mistakes we should learn one lesson. We take further steps it is not repeat again it is called maturity. So my advise do not think about past incidence. Your friend done one mistake he was not reveled in counselling. Due to this his problem is not rectified no problem now go and attend good psychologist for further counselling and modify his behavior attitudes also. Ok best of luck. Medicine has certain limitations.

Nothing is wrong with her but it depicts her nature. She is very sensitive and a slight criticism or wrong words (which cannot always be for her) will make her think more and more about it and she feels depressed. Secondly it shows that she has an introvert and aggressive nature. So she should come out of her self created web and enjoy life in the most efficient way. By keeping the things in mind and brooding about it is not the solution but to face the situation boldly and to shut-up those illetrate people who passes comment or mock at her with your good gesture and warmth is the right solution. Tearing and burning things will never solve but it will add to her agony-----------------------------

How can I improve my concentration?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, 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.

Dear Doc.

I think you must take her to a counselor soon. This is actually a transition phase when she is moving over from childhood to adulthood: sometimes she will feel and want to be treated like an adult, and at other times she will feel and act like a little child. She will also think that she knows what she is doing but that is an immature bluff. Still do not disagree with her outright. Let her feel that he is right but discuss the plans and decisions as though you will be going along with it but very artfully bring it back to some rationality yet make it appear that it was her decision and that it was after all right! She may be having a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which fortunately has a duration of two years, only. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which she has no control: she will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and she will have acne and pimple problems. Then if she has unresolved childhood issues (which I suspect), they will compound the situation and fuel her uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that she herself may not be aware of all this. In her case, she is manifesting a lot of anger: do you know of any reason from her childhood that may have contributed to unresolved anger? Go to a counselor and discuss these matters over and get support to take care of her. Now what else can you do? The parents need to become her best friends i.e. you must always ally with her and find the path of least resistance, without displaying any weakness. Communication must always be open and favorable. The moment she hides things and does not communicate with you or you withdraw it, there is serious danger. So the parents must make her feel wanted and loved and must never reject or neglect her. Avoid all types of confrontations and discus your concerns with her, openly. Never give her anything without there being some negotiations – barter with her; you give her something in return for some compliance from her. There has to be some ground rules and established boundaries in your house. Let it appear like it is her choice to comply. You have to be strong and firm in some matters. Don’t make decisions for her: offer alternatives that help her make responsible choices. I recommend that you take her for career counseling and determine her aptitude for academic pursuits. There is no harm to tell her that you are afraid as to what is going to happen to her, and afraid that you cannot handle her. This is a fact and so there is no shame in being that open to her. Remember that she is seeking attention by these means. Do not deprive her of it. In fact listen to her arguments, and see where she is coming from and get into that frame of reference to understand her. She may be frustrated with you, if you insist in having it your way, when the world is undergoing rapid changes every day. Try to understand her. Both parents must be on the same page and not argue about her in her presence. Let her know that she is dealing with a united front and that she cannot play games pitching one parent against another. But she must always feel love and acceptance. Two years will fly in a jiffy, and she will settle down very amicably. The way you deal with her, you could either escalate the situation, because you think and know that you are older and stronger; or you could facilitate a youngster to tide over this situation with great resolve and character formation, by being her best friend during this period of strife and turmoil.
