Hello. Stress can not be removed completely. It can be channelised. Identify what are your stressors and see the ones you can control. For eg if the traffic stresses you out, you can’t change the cars on the road but you can try to leave a bit earlier. Similarly certain things will never be under your control, and you have to not stress about t. Stress is a good thing at some times. Eg before exams or deadlines at work. Otherwise no one would work hard. I recommend you to adopt a healthy lifestyle and balance work and home. For further management you can meet a stress management expert in form of a good psychiatrist, therapist or counsellor.

At your age this is an indication that some experience from childhood has not been fully resolved. Meet with a counselor and get some help dealing with your emotions. Anger should never be controlled but expressed always though in an appropriate manner. If you play games and sports it is a very good avenue to expend the energy of anger. Deep-rooted anger may have high levels and quick reactions too.

Does anxiety problem solve thru psychologist only as m a breastfeeding mother can't opt for medicine.
There are certain medications which are safe during break feeding period. If the anxiety is severe you have to consider taking medications, if you can manage by methods like relaxation technique and CBT, you can do the same. All the best.

4 Ways Couple YOGA Can Take Your Fitness and Relationship to the Next Level

4 Ways Couple YOGA Can Take Your Fitness and Relationship to the Next Level

4 ways couple yoga can take your fitness and relationship to the next level

Different from traditional yoga (involving a single person only), couple yoga involves the merging of your body rhythm with that of another person. This sync between partners is achieved through touch, movement, breath and body positions. The benefits that you gain from this practice are not only limited to your body but extend to your relationship too.

Far from the seriousness that you usually associate with traditional yoga, couple yoga allows the two of you to be more happy and playful. This is because trying to get the right pose with your partner can lead to a fair share of fun and laughter. You not only have to figure how to get into that pose, but also how to hold it.

In terms of how it affects your fitness levels, couple yoga can.

1. Strengthen your core

Couple yoga comprises of poses that strengthen your core, leading to improved metabolism and overall strength. The varied poses that you'll come across in this form of practice strive to engage the muscles of your back and abdomen, which are crucial in building your core strength. Double boat pose and side plank pose are two of such core strengthening poses. You can check out these various poses online.

2. Boost immunity

Whether it's your nervous system or the digestive system, the different yoga poses (like the child poses or the upward dog pose) bring about the stimulation of one or more of the body's systems, leading to a bolstering of your immune system.

Here's how couple yoga can deepen your relationship -

1. It builds trust

The practice of couple yoga can help build trust as certain poses call for trusting your partner implicitly. Difficult yoga poses may require you to hold onto your partner to stay balanced; and this total dependence on the other person creates a sense of confidence and comfort as you realise that your partner is there for you. A case in point is the partner tree pose, which can be both entertaining and challenging. It calls for great amount of trust and balance to sustain this pose successfully.

2. It improves intimacy between the two of you

Apart from all the fun, there's to this form of yoga, couple yoga also calls for a certain level of intimacy. While practicing it, you not only get to learn your own limitations but also those of your partner, helping you to accept all of them. The opening poses (heart hug) serves to do just that, it opens the two of you up so that you can fall in sync. Gestures like placing your hand on the heart of your partner, feeling the other person's heartbeat and keeping pace with each other's breathing serve to strengthen the bond between you two.

While improving your health and fitness levels, couple yoga strives to improve your relationship with your partner and help the two of your to explore patterns and aims within your relationship.

Dear , dream analysis is an area which is not approved scientifically. There could be many interpretations and all of them can be obtained on searching . But we, as we follow ethics, do not believe in interpretation of dreams because it has not been proved yet. Therefore, my sincere request to you will be, to not to think obsessively about your dreams. You are just 26. Exercise very hard and do many physical activities so that you get good dreamless sleep.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The prescribed medicines should be apt for your complaints for personality style. Don't worry. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.. Take care.

These can be symptoms of depressive illness or anxiety disorder. Anxiety and depressive illness is a medical/psychiatric illness that can be treated effectively by antidepressants and cognitive behavior therapy. So one has to see a psychiatrist at the earliest. Psychiatrist after assessment and evaluation will decide on the best antidepressant medication that is suitable to you. These antidepressant medications are not sedatives or addictive in a nature. The course may last for 4-6 months depending upon the severity of the illness.

Contemplate/ think what is your aim in life. Give a thought to the future. Think about how your future life need to be. If required take the help of your parents or true friends in assessing the various modes of life. then you choose what you want to become. Strive and work hard to achieve what ever you wanted to become. forget about all the extraneous things/attractions. do not compare your life with others. your are unique and special. so choose your own path. so instead of wasting the available time spend it in enriching your life. No body will/can give you happiness. You be happy. to be happy there is no need for any body or any external factor. Be happy for being alive. Be happy for able to walk on your legs. Be happy for able to take food. Be happy for able to digest food. Be happy for able to see with your eyes. Like wise Be happy with simple things. enjoy the beauty of nature, then your life will change. you will develop interest in your day to day life. good luck

You have to think of your whole lifestyle and bring necessary changes. You have to understand the importance of a disciplined lifestyle if you want to achieve something great. Without sincerity and planning it's not possible. A few simple steps can improve your concentration. Stop multitasking. Focus on doing one thing at a time. Eat healthy food only. Before you study ensure that you had a light food which is freshly prepared and easy to digest. Your overall diet should be nutritious and balanced. Avoid junk food and readymade fast-foods and juices. Have different types of fruits and vegetables everyday. Start exercising every day, begin with simple walking for 15-20 mins. You can repeat a different exercise in the evening. Use innovative ideas to keep up the enthusiasm. You can also play any game or sports. A good night's sleep will make you feel fresh and rejuvenated. So sleep hygiene is to be strictly followed. Doing selfless work like helping others can make you feel good and pump up your self esteem. You will start believing in yourself and your potential to do something big. Practice yoga and pranayama regularly to harmonise the mind and body. Understanding your nature and being humble to accept your mistakes will empower you to do the best. Challenge your self. Take the help of others if needed without feeling inferior or guilty. All the best.

What Is Depression?

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad
What Is Depression?

Please note: Depression is a serious medical condition and can require medical attention. If you suffer from depression, please call your doctor for diagnosis and a treatment plan that works for you.

The first problem with depression is its definition. A feeling or mental state isn’t easily measured or defined. Sure, there’s a clinical definition, but diagnostic criteria can be awfully subjective. Because of this, and because of the pressure for doctors to prescribe expensive drugs, antidepressants are doled out to people who don’t qualify for the diagnosis of major depression. This includes giving pills to people with insomnia, muscle spasms, or really any report of being bummed out.

The DSM-5 (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) lays out the diagnostic criteria for Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) like this (more or less): Five (or more) of the following symptoms have to be present for a consecutive 2-week period. At least one of these has to be “depressed mood” or “loss of interest or pleasure”:

  • Depressed mood (i.e., sad, empty, hopeless)
  • Diminished of pleasure in all (or almost all) activities
  • Change in weight more than 5% in one month when not dieting
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia nearly every day
  • Psychomotor changes (slowed down or sped up) – must be observed by others
  • Fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day
  • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt nearly every day
  • Diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness, nearly every day
  • Recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, or suicidal attempts
  • Again, while it’s likely that doctors are overprescribing antidepressants, it’s important that if you’re suffering from any of the above criteria, you call your doctor to get some help!
