BEING POSITIVE

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
BEING POSITIVE

Being positive is the best thing you can do for yourself!

Do you see life as a blessing, an opportunity or a burden? the answer to this question plays a significant role in shaping your existence as it decides your outlook towards life. Being positive or optimistic is highly beneficial for your psychological and physical well-being. Positive thinking is an idea that not only drives you towards success, but also makes way for happiness in your life. 

Cultivating positivity is undoubtedly the best thing you can do for yourself as it makes your life worth living, besides delivering a bunch of health benefits.

Here are 6 of them.

1. Gives you a longer life span

A positive outlook not only keeps you happy, but also increases your life expectancy by manifold in comparison to people with pessimistic thoughts. A recent dutch study analysed the thought patterns of people for 9 years to come to this conclusion. According to this study, which was published in jama psychiatry, people with a generally pessimistic approach have decreased life expectancy by 55%. 

2. Increases good cholesterol level
A research was conducted in 2013 by harvard school of public health to find the link between optimism and cholesterol levels. The study was carried out among middle-aged people and it revealed that that optimistic thought patterns indicated increased levels of “good” cholesterol.

3. Boosts your immune system
Researchers are of the opinion that people who cultivate positive thoughts show a stronger immune response in comparison to people who associate themselves with negative emotions.

4. Increases your confidence
Having positive thoughts can be very advantageous for you as it teaches you to feel good about yourself. This encourages you to try new things and accept challenges more heartily, which in turn boosts your confidence level drastically. Increased self confidence drives you towards success and enhances your performance in all phases of life.

5. Helps you cope with stress better
Studies show that when optimists face a situation, which is not in their favour, they focus more on solving the problem instead of getting disappointed or frustrated. Positive thoughts make you enthusiastic and teach you to deal with any stressful situation with a smile, thereby helping you to work your way out of a crisis. It has also been observed that positive thinking among adolescents acts as a source of protection against depression and behavioural problems commonly faced during teenage.

6. Reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases
A recent study conducted by the american heart association, and published in its journal circulation, showed that people who depicted a positive attitude towards life had decreased their chances of getting heart diseases by 73% in comparison to their pessimistic counterparts. According to researchers, this happens because optimism leads people towards a healthier lifestyle, comprising of a balanced diet and a proper exercise regime. Moreover, optimistic people also have the improved ability to deal with stress, which further points towards a healthy existence.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instil fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

"Bipolar disorder" can be vanished totally or not? I am taking medicine from very long period of time.
Yes, you can come out of this condition. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. You must comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i.e. feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve.

Hi , Depression require medical attention – seek out your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. It is normal to have small amounts of sadness or depression, and they manifest themselves in different ways. Or maybe you’ve experience a loss and it’s totally normal to feel sad and grieve. In those cases, if you don’t feel sad, you’re probably not processing an emotion so you can let it go. However, sometimes sadness and depression persist. When this happens, some people feel lethargic, others tearful, or maybe you just lack your normal level of motivation. Or maybe it manifests as irritability or even numbness. Whatever it is, at the end of the day, it saps your performance and makes you feel less Bulletproof.

Hi lybrate-user, anxiety is often an overwhelming condition, and when the mind is overwhelmed it can do some very unusual things. One of these is known as depersonalization, which is a symptom of anxiety that often fuels more anxiety and more depersonalization. Depersonalization is when your mind feels divorced from your own sense of self. It's when you are essentially overly self-aware to the point of feeling as though you're not in your own body. It's a consciousness that makes it feel like you're floating outside of yourself and that your actions are not your own. Depersonalization is a common symptom of panic disorder, and may occur with other anxiety disorders as well. The most likely reason that depersonalization occurs is as a coping mechanism for your brain. Your brain can get extremely stressed by your emotions. It's not just your thoughts and symptoms - it's the physical brain itself. The link between your consciousness and your thoughts is physical and mental. So most likely, the brain creates depersonalization disorder as a way of experiencing less stress. It's likely that it's shutting down certain parts of the brain and disconnecting yourself from the emotions so that it doesn't experience as much tension, despite the fact that depersonalization often creates its own anxiety. Another possible cause is simply because anxiety can lead to hyperawareness. Generally this occurs with physical issues. For example, some people feel they have a swollen tongue during an anxiety attack, but the tongue isn't actually swollen. Instead, the mind has over-focused on the feelings of the tongue, causing it to start to feel unnatural and" larger. It's possible that a similar issue is happening with consciousness, where the mind focuses so much on the way you process information that it becomes over-processed and starts to feel unreal. Finally, during anxiety attacks, neurotransmitters are often firing at a rapid rate. It's possible that these neurotransmitters are activating or de-activating parts of your mind that create this dissociative state. Ince depersonalization occurs as a result of intense anxiety, the best thing you can do is try to decrease the intensity and keep yourself from experiencing further anxiety. Keep the following in mind: be okay with depersonalization depersonalization can be very frightening, but it's not dangerous. If you start to feel it occurring, don't try to fight it. Just wait it out. Fighting it won't solve anything, and may even make your anxiety worse. You can remind yourself that depersonalization may be a scary event, but it has no short or long term consequences once it's over. Breathe efficiently depersonalization occurs at the height of anxiety attacks, and one of the issues that tends to make anxiety attacks severe is hyperventilation, which reduces blood flow to the brain and causes symptoms that may result in intense stress. Slow down your breathing dramatically. Breathe in for 5 seconds, hold for 2, breathe out for 7. Any time you feel like a panic attack may be coming, breathe slower to prevent some of the worst symptoms. Distractions for reality those with depersonalization are usually aware they're in a dreamlike state. They tend to keep everything to themselves, resulting in them withdrawing into more and more of an over-conscious and dreamlike state. Give someone a call or talk to those around you. It can be hard to admit that you have this anxiety/depersonalization problem, but the problem does not get any easier if you try to keep everything to yourself and stay inside of your own head. Go jogging jogging is a natural cure for anxiety, and also a wake up call to reality. Running can be hard when you have anxiety since rapid heartbeat tends to lead to further panic attacks, so walking is an acceptable but less effective alternative. Walking and jogging involve so many different senses that it's hard for your mind to zone out from reality. Depersonalization is not dangerous, so the key is to learn ways to reduce the extent of your panic attacks and your anxiety. No matter what, you'll still need to address your overall anxiety levels so that you decrease the likelihood of experiencing depersonalization. Consult a psychologist for its management.

Stress - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help Combat it?

Stress - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help Combat it?

One of the major pitfalls of modern professional as well as personal life is stress. With obesity and bad diet, stress completes the unholy trinity of the three pronged problems which contributes to many modern lifestyle related disorders. Even if you control obesity and diet through lifestyle changes, stress is inherent in our everyday life and mostly is not in your control. 
However, Ayurveda has some great methods through, which you can limit or minimize stress and limits its effect on your mind, body and soul.

Ayurveda - The holistic approach to stress
Ayurveda has been around for thousands of years and is thus, a great tool to fight or reduce many of the physical and mental ailments that afflict you. Ayurveda’s approach at busting stress is thus, very well rounded. These methods help keep your mind still to reduce stress and also reduce the ill effects of stress on your body. Some of the elements of this holistic diet are mentioned below:

  1. Change your diet: Stress creates craving for unhealthy food, which is either very spicy or has a lot of processed sugar or fat. It is a temporary fix, which is again required when the next bout of stress hits, resulting in a pattern akin to addiction. One of the first steps is to break the cycle by changing eating habits. Stress occurs as a reaction to adversities in the world and rather than food aggravating the vata, pitta and kapha doshas, it should pacify and balance them. Whole and healthy food is what you need in such a case and it can comprise of
    • Soups
    • Root vegetables
    • Stews
    • Simple foods such as rice or roti
    • Green vegetables among others
  2. Drink herbs in form of beverages to reduce stress: There are many forms of Ayurvedic herbs, which can help combat stress. One natural response among many people when stressed is to consume coffee or tea in large quantities, which may actually aggravate the problem. Try drinking Ayurvedic herbs as tea, which have been specially formulated to combat stress and correct the unbalanced doshas within the body.

  3. Try Aromatherapy: Incense sticks and other specially formulated aroma candles can be used to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home where you can sit and meditate while the pleasant aromas and the herbs within them can lower your stress level and act as a release point. 

  4. Abhyanga: This is a form of self-massage with the help of specially medicated herbal Ayurvedic oils. It helps the body by relaxing the muscles, lubricating connective tissues and also improving circulation. Abhyanga reduces stress within the body and keeps you calm and relaxed. This will help you to reduce stress and also handle it better on a daily basis.

  5. Pranayama, yoga and exercise: One of the most effective tools to combat stress and improve your physiological condition is through yoga and pranayama. Pranayama in particular is one of the most effective methods to regulate multiple functions of the body and to ensure your mind stays still and calm. Certain yoga poses can also be emphasized on to ensure better stress relief. Also ensure that you diligently follow your exercise routine daily as it is proven to be one of the most effective ways of combatting stress.

  6. Herbs: Certain herbs can be used as medications, which can restore the balance of doshas. Sometimes, stress is caused due to internal problems rather than incitement from the outside world.  Some of the herbs that can be used in medicated combinations in such cases are triphala, ashwagandha and brahmi. However, it is best to consult with an Ayurvedic practitioner who can prescribe tailor made medications for you.

Hello. I am 22. I was in relationship with two guys before n it all ended up bad. I am very concerned person who gives too much important to others. I happened to fall in love with a guy 4 years younger to me He was so much into me that even I got addicted. But he has started acting weird n we barely talk. Now I'm the one literally behind him n it's hurting my ego. I dunno why I've always been dumped by boys I'm not ugly I suppose n I take care of them a lot. I dunno what is my mistake.

At this age, people rarely take relationships seriously. They try to experiment and sometimes turn to the options most suitable to their needs and may not stick to it for longer period. You do not have to blame yourself - sometimes its not about us its about them. All you can do is be good in relation but also give space to the guy. After all your efforts if someone chose to leave its their wish and you should accept it. The right person will always stay. You are young do not form opinion on guys relationships and yourself. You are yet to experience a lot of good things.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. For further assistance you can concern me privately.Take care.

You both are dangerously withdrawing into yourselves. You both need help and a counselor is absolutely necessary under these circumstances. If you do not deal with your loss and do some grief work, you are likely to waste away your lives. I am sure your mom will not like to see these developments. So meet someone and talk to that person about your feelings. This is what is called an 'episodal depression' where due to a very heart-rending event that you feel you cannot handle you tend to collapse into a depression. 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 father. 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. Your mom will not come back and it is now the focus of the living that is very important. Let mom be proud of you wherever she is.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think and imagine. If you are unable to provide meaningful and creative tasks to your mind, it is quite natural that the mind will wander away. Wandering mind always ventures into negative and obsessive territory. You need to provide creative and meaningful tasks to your mind so as to keep it engaged. Physical exercises, outdoor games, entertainment, socialization, active reading, active listening etc helps keeping your mind engaged. I suggest online mind power learning. Take care.

Hello. Thanks for the query. I understand your plight & can surely help you to get rid of both the tablets. But the medications have to be gradually tapered so that you dont suffer unwanted side effects. Tablet escitalent plus contains escitalopram 10mg & clonazepam 0.5mg of which clonazepam is a sleeping pill. Tablet zolfresh 10mg is also a sleeping pill. So first up; start taking zolfresh 5mg at night just before going to bed & continue t. Escitalent plus as it is. Then contact me after 10 days so we can decide about other medications. Good luck.
