There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better. 1. Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise. 2. Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done?' How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make?' Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. 3. Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going. 4. Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out.' Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone. 5. Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you. 6. Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it. 7. Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you. 8. Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert. Or consult me on Lybrate privately

I went though alcohol rehab 10 years ago. On the last day of rehab I was given alcohol .as soon as I consumed the alcohol the air rushed out of me and I was given oxygen immediately. This was given as a deterrent and I was told if I were to drink alcohol this is what would happen to me. What happened? Can you please explain?

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, As a part of treatment, psychiatrists often suggest certain medication which will counter the alcohol intake and the person can have nauseating feelings or some bodily uneasiness. Alcohol consumption, as such is bad for your health, please do not resort to alcohol again. The medicine you take will do no harm until unless you take alcohol. Be happy and safe! Best of luck.

You can control your smoking with your dedication and strong will power. Nicotine withdrawals just take 72 hours to go. If you can stay away from nicotine for 72 hours one hour at a time you can not only control your smoking but can be able to stop it forever and can lead a very happy and meaningful life. Just don't smoke and stay healthy.

Some times I feel unhappiness. I blame others what I do, not find result what I have to do face depression.
Feeling unhappy and sad persistently for no apparent reasons is a sign of underlying depressive disorder. It's just an escape for the mind to blame others for our happiness, it's another sign of a weakened mind. Consult a psychiatrist for counseling and medical help if required. Depression like any other illness is completely treatable. You may consult me online for any queries or treatment thereof.

Tips To Reduce Anxiety and Stress

MBBS
General Physician, Trivandrum
Tips To Reduce Anxiety and Stress

Tips To Reduce Anxiety and Stress

1. Sleep well and regular. Irregular sleep can have some serious consequences. It affects both our physical health and also contributes to anxiety and stress. Anxiety
as such also leads to disruptions in sleep . When feeling anxious, always try to get a full 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and it can work wonders to improve your
condition.

2. Always keep smiling.
Take a quick break in between your hectic work to get some laughs with your friends. Laughter can reduce depression and anxiety and has proven benefits.

3. Tidy up your living space or workspace. Keep your things clean and clutter-free. That helps us think clear and thus reducing levels of anxiety.

4. Say thank you often. Expressing your thanks for something helps reduce anxiety.

5. Eat smart. Eating more of foods which are rich in vitamin B and omega-3 fatty acids and also healthy whole grain carbs. Vitamin B contributes to good mental health.
while omega 3 fatty acids help with both depression and anxiety . Whole grain foods boost serotonin and helps us remain poised. Eating high-sugar content food and
processed foods can increase levels of anxiety.

6. Learn to breathe well and relax. Short, shallow breaths arise when you are tensed. So consciously breathing deeply, plus increasing the duration and depth of
breathing helps relax the body and mind to a great extent.

7. Meditate. Meditation has so many positive effects on stress, mood, and anxiety. Club meditation with positive thinking to improve your general well-being and
overall health. Yoga is also very effective to take off stress from the body and mind by deep relaxation and breathing techniques.

8. Chill and be silent. Reduce the noise and clutter talk that contributes to anxiety. Find time for yourself and be alone to muse upon your own matters without anyone
disturbing you. 

9. Worry. Yes, we can cause ourselves to freak out, but only for a certain amount of time. When something weighs heavily on your mind, or you believe something
terrible is most definitely going to occur, commit to only creating that worry for 20 minutes. Think of all the possible outcomes of the scenario, figure out some game
plans, and then quit thinking about it after 20 minutes go by. Have a friend call after the allotted time has passed to avoid the temptation of going over the time
limit. Or schedule some of that playtime right afterward.

10. Plan for the future but do not worry about it.
Make time tables and to-do lists so that you wont be worried about finishing stuff and so that you can increase your productivity. 

11. Be positive. 
When you feel anxious, train your mind to think and feel positive and give reinforcement to yourself that you can handle any situation. This will significantly reduce
your stress and anxiety symptoms.

12. Smell relaxing stuff.
Go out to your garden. Smell a fresh rose. Take a deep breathe and allow the relaxation to course through your whole body. You can also use relaxing aroma therapy and
use it indoors.

13. Go out and spend time with your friends and family. Spend time with your pets
Social support reduces anxiety and stress to such a great extent that it is almost always bearable. So next time you get on your nerves, go out with your friends, chat
with them, watch a movie, spend some time watching the waves in the beach with your partner, talk to your siblings.

I lost my dad last month. Have a 9 months old baby. I am only daughter so mother is staying with me now for sometime. I feel extremely angry most of the time and have started to react even for small small things whether it is my mother, husband or baby. Sometimes I have even hit my baby by losing patience and later realized I did wrong. My mother has schizophrenia since I was 3. Dad had bibipolar disorder when I was 20. What to do please help?

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Hi you seems to be unable to cope up with the acute grief situation due to death of dad and the resulting circumstances. As the family history shows both your parents are having established psychiatric problems; which means you should be extra careful for yourself in this regard. I am suggesting you to take one dose of a homoeopathic medicine ignatia amara 1000. After 3 days you report. This medicine will help you to get better and it will not affect your baby adversely if you are breast feeding him.

I am 40 year old male, just stopped smoking for 3 weeks now. I am still having the urge but typically made up my mind not to touch cigarettes any more. How long does it take it take for the urge to go get into zero factor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on stopping the smoking. Every day is important in containing this habit. If you are looking at a point zero for total absence of the urge, you are looking at an abstinence of three years without relapse. Here? s a piece of very good advice however: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again? but the three years from the new date must be your starting point for the three-year layoff. The body has a lasting memory and even after three years you could start the habit and get into addictive levels easily. I am only saying that the urge will disappear after three years of smoke-free abstinence. I hope that is clear. The true resolution to the addiction lies in a concept called the script issue, which will resolve why you are killing yourself by slow poisoning and give you better reasons and drive to quit. Since you have bp, smoking is contraindicative and there must have been other factors driving you to be so harmful to yourself. Of course I do not know for how long you have been in this habit. 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.

Dear , panic disorder is always due to underlying anxiety disorders. You need to understand and manage your anxiety problems and learn how anxiety triggers panic attack. Both are curable using psychotherapy, meditation and awareness. Don't worry. If you want more information, you may ask a private question to me. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

First thing share your feelings with your closed ones. Feel and give positive suggestions to your mind. I am very happy I have no problems. I am very happiest person in the world. Better to develop good social relations. Do not be alone. Remove the old memories of that person. Better to change the places or visit new places. Travelling is also helpful. Taste the new items. Learn to take new steps in your life. No one is not exception before nature laws. There is need to forget about past incidents. Forgetting it is only it is in our hands. We cannt do anything about past incidents. So do not be alone. Better to make new friendly relations. Enjoy the days. Make your own recreational aspects. Feel and enjoy the present situations of life. Ok best of luck.

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 am very confused about my career. I have an MBA degree and did job in a bank for one year. Due to health, I left my job and joined my family business but it is not satisfying my life. I really don't know, who am I? When I watch a movie, I wish I would be a director, actor,writer etc. When I see rich people with luxurious life, I wish I would be there. When I see a celebrity I wish people would love me. Only I think kinds of those situations. But when I go to prepare myself to do something which I think to be, my moral and willpower go down. Please help me to set a life living goal.

Do not lose heart. These are quite common symptoms at your age. You are not satisfied with your life. If you can pursue something of your choice then it is fine. If not, best thing would be to gradually start a routined life in which there is exercise, reading and meditation. You will slowly build up your will power and your life will get a direction. Pursue a hobby and try to see where your interest lies. Last but not the least, be positive. That is the key to being happy and excelling in life.
