I am under stress. Please help me to recover. I am trying to forget of it but I can't.

Dear Yash, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear , depression in its sense itself is inactivity. The patient do not have any enthusiasm or energy to act. Medicines do help up to an extent. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should help your wife. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I feel very scared after my father sudden death 4 months before. I was very happy and joyful person but it seems that in a day everything change. I am scared that what will happen if again anything happen to anyone in my family whenever my husband go out for work after every hour I call him, when my baby cry in illness I become panic that something will happen. I am trying to overcome this situation by keeping myself busy in household works but I am tired of my negative thoughts. I want to be like what I was.

Its tragic to lose someone close to you. The vacuum left behind takes time to fill up and time to heal. It is all right to feel grief and feel sad. We are all humans. Just accept it instead of trying to fight it. Try different types of meditation. On YouTube you will find videos of Mindah Lee Kumar. Try them they are very useful. Try to connect with friends. and meet them. Life is a journey with ups and downs... Everything is in Gods hands. I am sure your father would always like you to stay positive and be a fighter. Be strong and be patient. Be hopeful.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

Business takes time to establish. You have to be patient and make sure that whatever has to be done, is done and in good measure. Initial investment too will be high without timely returns. If you are not handling your business well, then you need some consultancy from a person with the acumen. Talk with someone who has the knowhow and see what you are doing wrong. Collections are also something that will cause a lot of delays and you will need surplus investment to meet the running costs. Perhaps your business plan was not well thought out. Here too there are consultants with whom it will be wise to discuss your business​.

I am very depressed. I want a partner in my life so that I can make happy my life. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That sounds like a good idea for you. If I was the woman, I would certainly not want to be married to you just to solve your depression and to keep you happy. All this sound selfish and you must look at what you are bringing to the marriage. You have to be there to satisfy the woman too. In all this I suggest that you look to treat yourself and then consider proposing to a woman. You have to be an asset in a relationship and not a liability. Meet with a counselor and work out your issues, and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor, please do so and comply with both therapies. Marriage plans can wait; your wellbeing is important.

I am 18 years old. I am suffering from depression and conduct disorder for 4-5 years. I feel numb most of the time. At other time I have high mood swings.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
lybrate-user you have described that you suffer from conduct disorder, depression and also mood swings. But my first advice to you is don't try to diagnose yourself. Any adolescent can have mood swings and behavioural problems which are quiet normal and they may need guidance and support. Any young female can have these issues due to hormonal changes and low thyroid levels also. My advice to you is share your issues with your parents and consult a psychiatrist if needed. Try to do regular exercises and maintain a proper sleep and diet pattern too. Wishing you all the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Thiss is not an age for Memory loss.Actually it is not loss of memory ,but we take things for granted.Just ask yourself,Do you ever forget to take or give money to a person whom you have lent money or from whom you have taken money.Actually we are so much occupied with our daily work that our mind ignore less important things and we ourselves term it as Memory loss.It i just stress due to over load of work and nothing else.We all have pushed ourselves into lot of stress trying to do many thing in one time and here start the problems.We start feeling irritated and due to thiss irritation and frus stration of not giving 100% in work,we start skipping important things from our mind thus making the things even more worse.Certain homoeopathic medicines and an exercise will help you for your problem but I again say that just try to be focused and complete thingss in a most peacefully manner and environment and homoeopathic medicine will help you in this direction.

What foods I have to eat to increase my memory power and applicability? Please tell me good activities or exercises to increase my brain power?

Psychologist, Palakkad
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.
