He might be filling up some void through substance abuse. Let him address a deeper emotional issues which he is suppressing through tobacco, otherwise he will resort to some other addiction after withdrawal of tobacco.

6 Doable Ways to Control Your ANGER and Not Let it Control You!

6 Doable Ways to Control Your ANGER and Not Let it Control You!
6 Easy ways to not let your anger get the better of you

Although a natural emotion, anger needs to be managed at all times so that it doesn’t get out of control and cause problems in your life. Whether at home, work or in your relationships, uncontrolled anger can affect your general life quality. However, controlling your anger comes with the benefit of improving your overall health, while reducing stress levels.

Here are some of the ways that you could learn to gain control on your temper:

1. Practice deep breathing
Instead of allowing your anger to get out of control, every time you start feeling angry, get down to practicing some simple breathing techniques to calm your tense body and mind. Here’s what you should do when enraged:
- Take slow, but deep breaths to counteract the stress reaction that usually accompanies anger
- Slowly repeat a calming word or phrase, which could be “relax”, “take it easy” or “I am in control of my anger”
- Work on your muscles by tightening and then relaxing them

2. Count from 1 to 100 or 100 to 1
Counting numbers can prevent you from flying off the handle. It takes your mind away from the cause of your anger and prevents you from mulling over the situation. The act of counting also provides you with the time to delay the impulsive behaviour that often follows the emotion. You can even make this more effective by breathing in slowly and deeply whenever you start on a
new number.

3. Focus on the present
Whenever you’re angry, don’t look back at the past. By doing so, you may end up bringing past grievances into your present situation, while holding others responsible for feeling how and what you feel. Instead focus your attention on what you can do in the present to work out the issue.

4. Relax tight muscles
Another tip that can help you to cool down fast is a gentle massage of the areas of tension, which are usually the shoulders, neck and scalp. For the shoulders, simply rotate them to relax tight muscles. To release the tension that gets built up in your neck and head region, perform a simple scalp massage to improve blood circulation and consequently, relax your mind.

5. Listen to music
Listening to music can soothe frayed nerves and calm you down. It works by helping you to sieve through the feelings of anger and disappointment in a constructive manner.

6. Change of situation
Taking yourself away from the source of anger, whether it’s the place or the person concerned, is an anger management skill that you can use to calm yourself. To do this, you can either close your eyes and transport yourself to a quiet and peaceful place or simply walk away to let your anger fizzle out.

Tips to Ease Stress

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Tips to Ease Stress
Below are 10 tips that can help in easing stress.

- ask yourself what you can do about the sources of your stress. Think through the pros and cons. Take action where you can.

- keep a positive, realistic attitude. Accept that although you can't control certain things, you're in charge of how you respond.

- stand up for yourself in a polite way. Share your feelings, opinions, or beliefs, instead of becoming angry, defensive, or passive.

- learn and practice relaxation techniques. Try breathing exercises, meditation, prayer, yoga, or tai chi.

- exercise regularly. You'll feel better and be more prepared to handle problems.

- eat healthy. Avoid too much sugar. Focus on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

- when you're stressed, you'll probably want less-nutritious comfort foods, but if you overdo them, they'll add to your problems.

- try to manage your time wisely.

- say no, where you can, to things that would add more stress to your life.
Make time for hobbies and interests.

- get enough rest and sleep. Your body needs time to recover from stressful events.

Hello sir 1 year back I was in relationship and after 6 months of dating we got broke up due to misunderstanding. At that point of we were possessive about each other but now we hardly talk. I tried my level best to get back with her but she refused when she tried I refused. At present she is dating someone else and I am getting jealous even I tried to date someone but I am not able to develop love feeling inside me after that. Even a friend of mine had fall in love with me but I said no when she proposed me. Please help me to developed love feeling again I am really depressed

It' s unfortunate that you both are not talking to each other after a period of intense relationship. What were your reasons for getting into this relationship and what made you possessive of her? this happens in many relationships where the couple is mutually infatuated and wants to show their best side to each other and later when the newness wears off, then the real self shows up which may not be very accepting of the other person. It looks like you two started off very intense and then differences cropped up because of which you are not together anymore. You need to have some real and solid reasons to get into a relationship if you want it to last. What choices do you have now when she is not showing interest? learn your lessons and move on. Look for a benefit from this breakup which will help you to heal and look back at this relationship with sadness rather than despair. Give yourself another chance by telling yourself that you have learnt from your mistakes and are ready to move on. Many more girls will come in your life who are equally good or even better than her.

I am asking this question for my family friend who is an professor of genomic science and we'll established in her life. Her marriage was fixed with a guy whom she had 6 years long relationship and few months ago they got engaged. She is a cheerful and expressive for all her emotion. But her fiance is opposite. Shy, less talkative and uncommunicative. Inspite of this they had long relationship and suddenly another guy comes to her life with all the attributes she has in her life and she starts feeling for him. The new guy's mentality is like my friend's mentality. Both of them fell for each others and the boy proposed my friend but she denied (before her engagement) but now she thinks she is feeling a special level for the second man with whom she spends quality times. She doesn't want to hurt her fiance and his family and getting depressed.

Hi! Marrying one person and leading life forever is good instead of divorcing and marrying someone better than the partner unless the partner is cruel or fake. The same way is love also. They have already had relationship for long and then falling with another guy just because he is more better than her previous lover is really non-justice. Ask your friend if she knows in and about her previous lover character. Getting married to someone whom she know very well is good to get married. The character of shyness, not social will change after marriage. If the previous lover gets more responsibility naturally shyness and other character will change. She can change him into a perfect person if she really loved him. That means she did not love him truly. She is expecting something else from a guy. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Why Does Depression Make Us Feel Guilt or Shame?

M.Phil in Clinical Psychology, Ph.D. Psychology
Psychologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Why Does Depression Make Us Feel Guilt or Shame?

In order to answer this question, it is important that we first discuss what depression is. Feeling sad, lonely or low is very common. So how can we point out which is depression and which is sadness? Well, sadness is a fleeting feeling and is the most normal reaction to loss or life’s struggle. Depression, on the other hand, is pretty permanent (may be not permanent, but it may last really really long or may occur very frequently, if not consulted with a professional). It is so overwhelming and inexplicable that these mental feelings start involving physical symptoms as well. Depression can keep an individual from leading a normal and an active life.

Depression, if not treated, may take an even worse form and might possibly end at suicide. Clinically, certain symptoms that occur persistently might point towards depression.

  1. Inability to concentrate
  2. Fatigue
  3. Guilt and shame
  4. Insomnia
  5. Irritability
  6. Hopelessness
  7. Eating disorders
  8. Loss of interest in previously enjoyable activities
  9. Persistent headaches, pains, aches, digestive problems
  10. Empty feeling
  11. Suicidal thoughts

Here comes the part about guilt and shame. One of the very common symptoms of depression is feeling of unnecessary guilt or shame. Guilt is a feeling of remorse or regret for violating an internal value. Shame is an overall feeling of self contempt. While both these are pretty normal feelings for a normal individual, for depressed individuals, these feelings get magnified to unimaginable extents.

How are these manifested?

  1. Constantly apologising for things one hasn’t done
  2. Blaming themselves for everything
  3. Thinking they don’t deserve happiness
  4. Feeling inferior or unworthy
  5. Feeling of being a burden

The next plausible question is why does this happen?

These feelings generally tend to go back to childhood. People who have faced childhood traumas or have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused are more prone to feelings of depressive guilt or shame. In the young age, they do not really have proper understanding of the situation and hence they end up blaming themselves. During adulthood, they keep believing the same, thus causing intense feelings of guilt and shame. A lot of counselling can bring such individuals to the understanding that whatever happened to them as children was never their fault.

Also, it has been researched that the region in the human brain associated with shame and guilt is unusually active in depressed individuals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Homeopathic Remedies For Mental And Physical Stress!

Homeopathic Remedies For Mental And Physical Stress!

For the past two centuries, Homeopaths have concentrated on the interconnection between psychology and physiology. It has been known for long that Homeopathy has no side effects on a person's overall health and thus, it should be implemented in curing mental and physical stress. Mental stress may result from a person's coping skills. You may respond to stress in a wrong way and this further complicates your situation.

You may fail to control your instinctive reactions. Medications in Homeopathy can actually remedy disorders regarding stress management. In many cases, it has been noticed that a physiological disease has a psychological impetus to itself. For instance, people falling under the 'Type A personality' category are more susceptible to heart problems. Their heart problems can be serious enough to make them undergo bypass surgeries. 

An operation can be avoided, if only reasons behind problems at the surface are understood. Patients belonging to the 'Type A personality' category can suffer from 'hurry sickness' with symptoms like bouts of anger, impatience, aggression and hurriedness. These factors together enhance the risk of having heart problems later in life.

The following medicines tackle disorders without any side effects:

  1. Homeopaths advise you to take Aconitum napellus to reduce physical stress. Aconite napellus is known to treat problems such as a dry mouth, an irritable skin, a pounding heart and so on so forth. This can even cure problems resulting from a traumatic episode in past.
  2. Another Homeopathic medicine prescribed to deal with anxieties about future is Arsenicum album. If you have fears about your safety, about certainty or about what future has in store for you, this medicine can help you out.
  3. The medicine Phosphorus is known to treat fears of being alone. Many people are afraid of being alone. They need company all the time. Phosphorus also tackles common fears, such as fear of thunderstorms, fear of the dark or fear of ghosts for that matter.
  4. People facing anxieties about health or anxieties about death often evade sleeping at night. They hallucinate and see apparitions. Mental stress therefore, leads to physical stress. Kali- arsenicosum is one Homeopathic medicine to take care of such problems.

Homeopathy as an alternative branch of medicine, which comes to your relief without causing other bodily problems during the course of treatment. Hence, to fight mental or physical stress you must try out Homeopathy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

How can I get rid of Guilty feelings and stay Happy? Some things come up my mind everyday and I become sad due to guilt I just want to get rid of them?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
While guilt has a function of guiding a person to act within acceptable limits of social conduct, excessive guilt can be very harmful and corrode a persons self confidence and self esteem. Since you did not mention any particular incident, I will just enumerate some tips for your consideration: 1. Guilt occurs when you have done something unfair and objectionable to another person. That time your conscience and morals will make you feel guilty. Now, here you need to see if you are doing the same action repeatedly and not learning from your mistakes. Its a good time to take stock and learn from your mistakes and not repeat hurtful behaviors. 2. Is the other person being too demanding of you and you can not do what they want you to do? well, its time to stand up for what you can or want to do, because you too have a choice, limitations etc. So actually theres no need to feel guilty here. 3. Do you take on too many responsibilities and end up not acting on them. Its time to prioritize what you want to do and what you must do. More planning and organizing means lesser guilt. 4. Are you someone who procrastinates often and then feel guilty of not doing it on time? maybe its time to work through your laziness and look at reasons why you procrastinate and become proactive. Feeling guilty about it will take you nowhere. If this is not what you are looking for, then please send details in private chat and I will help you to increase happiness and reduce guilt factor.
