Ways That Can Help Your Loved Ones In Getting Over Inferiority Complex!

Ways That Can Help Your Loved Ones In Getting Over Inferiority Complex!

Being confident is an essential asset that every person must possess to complete his/her responsibilities with the best efficiency. The feeling of inferiority can adversely affect one’s progress and can bring a host of health problems as well.

Inferiority complex is a condition where an individual develops feelings of self-worthlessness or inadequacy due to supposed or actual inferiority in one or several spheres. Developing thoughts of insecurity, uncertainty, and aggressive behaviour often characterizes doubts about oneself in some people.

Severe inferiority complex can demotivate a person tremendously and hamper his/her day to day life. In case someone near and dear to you is suffering from inferiority complex, here are a few ways you can help them overcome this phase of feeling inferior to others.

  1. Tell them to confront their feelings: One of the best ways to help your loved ones in getting over inferiority complex is to make them face their feelings. Yes, facing one's feelings can help them have a better insight into the underlying causes of developing such thoughts. Whether it's due to some issues during childhood or an inability to meet the expectations of others, confronting one's feelings is the first step to get rid of inferiority complex.
  2. Prevent them from thinking negative: Make sure to prevent your loved ones from continuously having negative thoughts or talking negative things about life. Instead, make it a point to indulge with them in positive, constructive and motivational talks. Showing the patients how loved or needed they are can help them get over with an inferiority complex to some extent.
  3. Help them to build their self-confidence: Talking with your loved ones about the things they are capable of doing and encouraging them to do the things they love to do can also be beneficial for preventing inferiority complex. By having a conversation with them, one can know about the person's deepest fears and what's troubling them and can also help them in retrieving their lost confidence.
  4. Suggest opting for professional help: A person suffering from inferiority complex may not want to opt for medical help right away as he may fail to understand that he is suffering from a complex condition that requires psychiatric help. Therefore, it’s up to you to guide them and make them understand that there’s no harm in having a consultation with a medical professional who is deft in handling such psychiatric issues. Depending on the condition of the patient, he or she may need to take medications. Therefore, consulting a psychiatrist is crucial.

Remember, people suffering from inferiority complex may or may not show symptoms like aloofness, feeling anxious, lack of concentration or negative behavioural changes. In case your loved ones show any severe signs and symptoms of inferiority complex, seek professional help immediately as if the condition is left untreated for long, it may lead to depression, suicidal thoughts, and other mental disorders.

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

5 Ways to Eat Healthy Even When You are Depressed

5 Ways to Eat Healthy Even When You are Depressed

Food’s relation with depression is a complicated one. A person can suddenly lose appetite or become extremely voracious. There are instances when you feel hungry, but do not eat due to the lethargy of cooking. Either way, it is a difficult task to eat healthy during a depression. Here is a list of tips that will help you to refrain from eating and drinking unhealthy and unhygienic food items such as alcohol, junk foods, chocolate, caffeine and ice-cream.

Prepare frozen meals well in advance:
During depression, not many people feel the urge to cook a meal. The alternative, in this case, is to prepare as many meals as you can and freeze them for future consumption. Food items such as black beans, pasta and chicken can be cooked and stored in the refrigerator for quite a few days. Store the cooked food in as many jars as you have. This cooked items will act as a life saviour when you feel hungry, but do not feel like cooking.

Use fewer dishes:
Minimising the number of dishes will save your life. A lot of people lose the urge of cooking or eating healthy when they see a pile of undone dishes in the wash basin. Use a minimum amount of dishes that is required for daily use and immediately wash them when you are done eating. This way you will fell motivated to cook and eat healthily.

Do not go for complicated meals:
They are a lot of easy to cook healthy meal options out there. Do not go for a dish that is difficult to prepare. If you mess up, chances are that you will neither enjoy eating the dish nor it cook in the future as well. The best thing to do is to prepare simple and easy to prepare healthy meals. Refer to a recipe book if you need help.

Listen to music while preparing food:
Cooking can be boring if you do not enjoy it. A good alternative is to listen to music while cooking. This will keep boredoms at bay and meals will be prepared in a whisker. Not to mention music will also keep your motivation level high. If work and play are not your things, you can watch the cooking shows to get your motivation level up.

Eat out:
Eating out is not a crime. If you feel the urge to eat out, go by all means. You need not eat junk food when you are out. Instead of going to a fast food joint, go to a good restaurant that serves healthy yet tasty food. It is a great way of improving your mood and eating healthy at the same time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

This is because you are taking excessive medicines and heavy injections, start consulting psychologist simultaneously with medication, psychologist would counsel and use therapies like REBT, CBT or Talk therapy it would help you. Daily yoga would reduce your hypertension.

I have anxiety issues and I am not able to get proper sleep , I always have a fear don't know about what but it is there so what should I do?

I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety, which in itself can disturb your sleep. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Do alcohol, drug abuse or masturbation kill brain cells? Can dead brain cells recover?

Do alcohol, drug abuse or masturbation kill brain cells? Can dead brain cells recover?
Dead brain cells will not recover. Alcohol and drugs, when overused, can cause brain cell damage. When a person drinks till he is sloshed, for example, 10000 brain cells can be damaged forever. Masturbation is not known to cause any brain cell damage.

What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?
Sir, instead of using any Pill - go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy.
