Stress Management - Manage and Reduce your Stress!!

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Stress Management - Manage and Reduce your Stress!!

Stress management encompasses techniques intended to equip a person with effective coping mechanisms for dealing with psychological stress.

Definition of stress: Stress management defines stress precisely as a person's physiological response to an external stimulus that triggers the "fight-or-flight" reaction.

Causes of stress: Many things can trigger the stress reaction, including danger, threat, news, illness, as well as significant changes in one's life such as the death of a loved one.

Techniques of stress management include:

  • Self-understanding (e.g. self-identification as a Type A or as a Type B personality)
  • Self-management (e.g. becoming better-organized)
  • Conflict resolution
  • Adopting a more positive attitude
  • Self-talk
  • Breathing exercises
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Altering your diet
  • Taking more regular and effective rest

Time Management Techniques

Some techniques of time management may help a person to control stress. For example:

  • Becoming more organized and reducing the generation of clutter 
  • Setting priorities can help reduce anxiety
  • Using a "to-do" list of tasks that a person needs to complete can give a person a sense of control and accomplishment

Effective stress management involves learning to set limits and to say "No" to some demands that others make.

Manage and Reduce your Stress

If you are one of the many people who want to alleviate your stress, you can learn some simple techniques to help you get out of the vicious cycle of leading a stressful life. Your stressful life does not just affect you, but everyone around you. It affects your relationships as well as any children or co-workers. Most of all, it can actually make you physically ill.

There are many facets to stress. Stress manifests itself in many different ways and can be either self-induced or something that occurs in life. We can never eliminate stress from our lives as stressful situations are part of life. However, we can learn to react to stress in a positive manner and take control of the situation rather than allowing the stress to remain in control. This book will teach you different tips as well as old secrets on how to identify the stressors in your life as well as learn to manage them.

I'm a 22 year old female. For the last five years, I've not been able to be successful in anything. I think I'm just lazy.

Five years ago you would have been 16 years when the last stage of adolescence beckoned and you would have needed to resolve any childhood issues (like this sexual abuse you talk of among others), once and for all. It appears that you have lived with that and therefore there could be important things to be taken care of soon. This could all lead to depression (anger-related) and for some reason, you have turned the anger inwards and that is propositioning the suicidal tendencies. You must, therefore, meet with a counselor soon and if that person recommends a doctor you must comply with the medication too. It is also advisable to take your parents to meet with the counselor to help identify the childhood issues and also to know about the sex abuse. You have been a victim and need not blame yourself in all this. But it is important to face all the repercussions of sharing your experiences to a professional and in front of your parents. You will find it a great relief and will immediately feel better for it.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

I smoke weed since last two yrs. What are possible damages my health may go through?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Brain imaging scans of heavy marijuana smokers have revealed changes in blood flow to parts of the brain involved in memory and attention. Researchers have also noted differences in the size and shape of the thalamus, the part of the brain that's involved in consciousness and information processing. Heavy pot smokers in studies score lower than non-users on tests of memory, attention, and learning. The more they smoked, the worse they did. The effects of smoking pot may be even more pronounced in teenage smokers than adults, because teens' brains are still developing. Regular users are more likely to be diagnosed with schizophrenia, especially when they have a family history of the condition. Other Health Effects Marijuana can have effects beyond the lungs and brain. These include: Anxiety Depression Fast heart rate Increased risk of heart attack (within the first hour after smoking) Suicidal thoughts in teens It is Addictive. People who stop smoking pot don't have the same withdrawal symptoms -- like anxiety and sweating -- they'd get if they were addicted to a drug like heroin. Yet those who use marijuana all the time can have a hard time stopping.

At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue 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 scotching 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

If depression is the main problem you should continue to be under the care of a psychiatrist regularly. Apart from medication you should have healthy life style, regular exercise like walking, relaxing techniques like deep breathing, pranayaam, etc and counselling by psychologist to get at the root of problem

Please understand that the schizophrenia is not fully curable. But you don't loose heart. Most of the symptoms of schizophrenia are body's natural defense mechanism. Psychotherapy, meditation and exercise combined with medicines should provide you good management opportunity.

It is better to consult professional in mental health care about these medicines rather than starting on your own. Stressful situations do come in our life again and again. The way we look at them create thoughts in our mind and as per thought the brain chemicals which we call neurotransmitters get release and affect our mood and behaviour. So along with medicines the thought management therapies will really help you to handle stress in your life. Cognitive therapy, mindfulness and clinical hypnotherapy aim to change our views and give us better happy life.

Dear doctor we have a patient of schizophrenia having auditory hallucinations and is under medication from aiims delhi. We have come to know that supplying brain with estrogen female hormone (estradiol) may cure this disease by regenerating new neurons. If right please advise how can it be supplied without harmful effects. Please advise trade name of the hormone and its dose we will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Respected uncle, there is no cure of schizophrenia as of now. We can only control symptoms or in case complete resolution of symptom on medicine. All other treatment like estrogen hormone therapy are in experimental stage. Currently these therapy has more harm than good so not recommend. Kindly take medicine and your patient will get maximum improvement. There are good medicine available with favourable side effect profile.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Anxiety can be of various types and can be part of one's personality, be a disorder in its own right or present as a part of other psychiatric disorders. There is no one best treatment for all of anxiety. SO we will need to see the exact nature and characteristics of the anxiety and come up with a personalized solution. Exercise, good sleep, meditation, breathing exercises, balanced diet and plenty of water are advisable. Medicines, counseling/ therapy may be needed. Please see a professional in person for a proper evaluation and management. I am aware that it is tempting to have a quick solution, but the reality is it is best to deal with these kinds of problems after a proper evaluation. Take care!

Dear lybrate user...Certain depression medication like mirtazapine may cause excess sedation like in your case. My advice to you would be to take medications early in the evening say by 7, so that the early you sleep the early you would be able to get up in the morning and wont have daytime sleepiness too. All the best

I am 44 yrs old having wife and 2 kids age 10 & 6. I am working in merchant navy. Due to my job I am out of my family about 7 to 8 months. I had love marriage I am hindu and she is catholic and there is lot of difference in culture and I cant understand her language and we are staying close to her parents house. She does not allow any my family member to come to my house. Last one year she started mens hostel business and due to this she ask me lot of money and I never ask and she never tell me what she is doing with money. Now a days she leaves house about 9 in the morning and comes back 9 in the night. I need to do all my house work. When ever I ask her to come back early she start shouting on me abuse me and says you dont believe me. And she abuse my parents after that we start verbal fighting and she calls her mother and say everything I cant understand anything. She gets phone call till night 12. 30 and if I ask she says why you want to know. I am getting disturb bcz I have only few months leave after again I will go back to ship. I am feeling very lonely and cant understand whats going on her mind. Sometime feel to suicide and end my life. She start saying that I am mad and need to go to doctor. Doctor pls let me know what should I do.

Running a hostel can be a 24-hour job. She could be very busy, but when you come she needs to make some arrangement to spend time with you. Where are the kids in all this? how has your sex life been all these years? perhaps she could also be frustrated being without you for such long periods of time. I don? t know for how long she has been running this hostel but she should be earning substantially by now, if it is a profitable business, as I know it to be. Why is she talking to people so late in the night? why does she have to talk to her mother in her language only? there are too many loose ends and some investigation needs to be initiated. You can appoint a reliable detective agency to find out and to keep a tab on her dealings. If it is proved that it was all in vain, then at least you can rest peacefully in your mind. But if there is something going on, it is time to confront the same. You need not be foolish about it all. There has to be some account about the money that is being spent, her time, the children? s upkeep and definitely spending quality time with you when you come down. She seems to brush you off with weak arguments which are not good signs. Now if it is proved that she has been playing up, is she worth dying for? not at all. Nobody is worth dying for, period. Before getting into any speculation, find out and then do what is needful. You have a right to know about your wife, her dealings, her time of 12 hours out, and the wellbeing of your kids. Have a serious talk to her, if possible, after you have some evidence. Unless your parents have interfered or were rude to her, she should not be disrespectful to them. In all inter-caste marriages, the differences pose problems and can lead to a lot of complications, if the couple are not very adjustable people.

I am smoking from last two years and now I want to quit smoking so now please suggest me how can I quit smoking successfully?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.
