Chronic stress is a by product of hour life style in today's modern times. Stress could have various effect on our body. It effects almost all of our system, anxiety is also one of it. I would like you to try following things on a regular basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me know how it works out for you. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Tobacco - Can Yoga Help You Quit it?

Tobacco - Can Yoga Help You Quit it?

A lot of smokers now are well aware of the dangers of smoking, but yet they find it hard to quit this habit. In fact, even repeated attempts to quit smoking fail after a few days as they tend to give in to a variety of withdrawal symptoms. In case you are searching for a permanent solution to de-focus and avoid tobacco intake, yoga is the way to venture out of the smoke and free yourself of the addiction.

Compelling well-being programs that plan to improve people and bring back their focus on things that help them lead a solid and happy life can be sought. In this manner, their friends and families get a chance to inhale fresh air as well. Yoga is one such measure which can be used.

Here are a couple of yoga poses that are helpful in getting rid of tobacco addiction:

  1. Kapal bhati pranayama (skull shining breathing procedure): This asana tends to enhance the blood flow, improve the sensory system, restore brain cells and quiet the mind. This pranayama likewise clears the nadis (the energy channels) and fights the temptation of smoking.
  2. Nadi shodhan pranayama (alternate nostril breathing procedure): Discharge accumulated stress, quiet your brain, sanitise and adjust your naadis (unobtrusive energy channels) with this pranayama. The nadi shodhan pranayama works effectively for some respiratory problems and helps you cope with your addiction of tobacco.
  3. Bhujanagasana (cobra posture): The cobra posture improves blood circulation and expands your abdomen. It lessens exhaustion and is additionally useful for people with respiratory illnesses. This yoga acts as a stress reliever and minimises the desire of smoking.
  4. Setu bandhasana (bridge posture): The bridge posture opens up the lungs and enhances the supply of oxygen to the body. It additionally extends different parts of the body, quiets the mind, diminishes tension, depression and stress, which keeps you far from smoking.
  5. Shishuasana (child posture): The child posture unwinds the body, quiets down the nervous system and eases the body from stress.
  6. Trikonasana (triangle posture): The triangle posture extends and strengthens different parts of the body. This yoga pose is an extremely powerful physical and mental balance for the body. It also diminishes nervousness and stress, and helps you fight the desire of tobacco.
  7. Sarvangasana (bear stand): The shoulder stand supplies the mind with more blood and also calms it down. It additionally mitigates stress and misery, thereby killing the desire of smoking.
  8. Shavasana (corpse posture): The corpse stance should be performed last as it releases the body into a profound, reflective condition of rest and alleviates tension. This yoga posture restores the body and diminishes stress and tension.

Yoga is a very beneficial form of releasing stress and tension as well as your addictions. It takes a long time to show results but the results are long-lasting and highly effective. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Hi lybrate-user, your problem is not that serious to worry or take medicines, it can be cured without medicines. You should actually take some relaxation therapy provided by psychologist, yoga teacher to relieve you from tension and back headache. It is good that you are non alcoholic and non smoker, added advantage to come out from anxiety, depression and hand shivering. First I would like to give you some advise, you go attend relaxation therapy and yoga that is meditation from a well trained yoga teacher to remove your anxiety and back headache for at least 3 to 6 months continuously, do not take this as a joke, if you attend some classed for your health sake should attend continuously, only then you can come out from this problem. This will help you to be self confident. You have got to visit a counsellor or contact counsellor to remove your depression, bring in self confidence and to help you lead a better life with happiness, but before would like to know more about yourself, family, work, related to this problem if any. Only then we could help you better.

You seem to be in stress. You will have to face whatever situation is bothering you. Fear is our biggest enemy- there is no problem in this world that doesn't have a solution. If there is no solution, then except the situation. Indulge in some relaxation exercises and meditation, talk to someone close and pour out your problems (share only with someone who can be of help), and tell yourself- this too shall pass- everything is going to be okay. Consult a psychologist, for better understanding of your problem.

I think you are feeling insecure. It is necessary, to explore your fear of death. This fear is so intense that even when asleep you are disturbed because of your thoughts. You may be having certain doubts or worries about sex as well. Kindly consult a counsellor who will help you to come out of both the problems.

My Husband is 40 years old, and we have been married for last 10 years, he has been working in the shares/ stock market for the past 15 years, from the last three years he has been working from home, and started abusing verbally and physically. And when he is in good mood he denies to have shown that behavior, and blames the other person. He has started living with his parents for the last 8 months and tries to avoid all responsibilities of his family, wife and 8 year old son. I want to know if he is suffering from any psychological problem and if it can be solved through medical treatment.

Specialist in Psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
You can record the audio when he's abusing and shouting, and show it to him and his parents to confront the issue so he may decide to do something about it. Find someone he listens to who can make him visit a counselor. If that doesn't work, you'll need to make your own financial/household arrangements (e. G, live separately) so that your child's future doesn't get ruined because of this behavior. revert me for further help.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I can understand what you must be going through with your symptoms. Constantly worrying over minor matters, and associated anxiety is suggestive of generalised anxiety disorder. However, a detailed psychiatric evaluation would be required for a definitive diagnosis. With proper treatment that will constitute of medications and psychotherapy, you will start feeling better an your general medical health will also improve. In addition, start exercising daily. Start writing a diary to let out your feelings and emotions daily. Please do consult a psychiatrist and initiate treatment. I do hope that you start recovering soon. Best wishes.

Every time you recover from the episodes of seizures (" forget what you are doing), please note what kind of activities you were doing, time, your emotional state etc. This may help to figure out some ways for better management of your problem. Nadisuddi technique from pranayama, which is a technique of yoga, properly learned and regularly practiced can help you by calming down your nervous impulses in the brain and increasing oxygen levels.
