How to get rid of Mental tensions? Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
How to get rid of Mental tensions? Please help me.
The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. If you know where the tensions is coming from it is a lot easier. Then meet with a professional and get the necessary help to sort it out for good. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. At work you must learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. They need to be brought for de addiction which involves You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

You are happily substituting one substance with another. In other words, you probably have an addictive personality for various reasons and may need top enter a rehabilitation program to completely deal with the issue of addiction. All these substances are known to cause damage to your system and are therefore ill-advised.

Lessons from Deepika and Ranbir on How to Manage Relationships Against All Odds

Masters of Philosphy, Master of Science, Bachelor of Sciences
Psychologist, Kolkata
Lessons from Deepika and Ranbir on How to Manage Relationships Against All Odds
Deepika and Ranbir show you how to manage relationships against all odds

Relationships may or may not always pan out the way you expect them to. Be it with a friend, family member or your partner, certain relationships may end up getting bitter over time. The reasons for this may be tensions in the relationship, break-ups, lack of compatibility, infidelity, lack of attention to details, over familiarity and so on. Although such incidents may scar you forever, it is always possible to mend your relationships, if you intend to.

The first thing you can do is to try to build a new friendship, whether it’s with your ex-lover or anyone else you may have had a fall-out with. Take for example, the former couple- Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. These Bollywood celebrities have flawlessly transitioned from being ex-lovers to being good friends.

So how did they do it?
Through 3 simple ways Ranbir and Deepika were able to heal the past and forge a new and meaningful relationship:

1. They kept it formal while setting boundaries

Ranbir and Deepika comfortably worked with each other in several movies as on-screen lovers with no insecurities. The reason they were able to do this was because they had set clear emotional boundaries.
Being secure is essential for you to stop yourself from reliving the past. Setting clear boundaries may help you in accepting that things are different now and the relationship has changed. Both the concerned people must respect each other’s decisions in order to have cordial relations and not be uncomfortable in the other’s presence.

2. They accepted the differences between them

Ranbir and Deepika were only successful in maintaining a cordial relationship because they had embraced each other’s differences rather than attempting to change each other.
You can only do this by giving yourself a little time. You can personally try to accept how every individual has a set of distinct characteristics and then try to respect and accept them for it.

3. They were polite and lived in the present

Even after having a checkered history together Ranbir and Deepika chose to remain courteous and amicable towards one another. They only focused on the present scenario, instead of mulling over past grievances - The biggest reason why they are on such good terms.
You should try to forget the past and hope for an improved future. Whether you meet at a social or an official gathering, you must hold your ground, be professional and courteous towards the concerned person. Participating in loose gossip about the individual or acting petty doesn’t reflect well on your personality.
Also, living in the past is a sign of an unhealthy state of mind. Learn to let go, and move on.

By learning from the real-life example of Deepika and Ranbir, you too can balance all your relationships well, no matter what happens.

I am frustrated what can I do for controlling my anger ?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Hi , This happens among school students at least 30 to 35 percentage students face this problem, Do not worry about exams. Just relax. You should learn to cope with this problem instead of giving so much pressure always studying studying, how is it if you have breaks to play cricket or having ice cream instead of studying all the time. You should enjoy filled with joy while playing or having an ice cream fully to the extent that you forget everything around you at least for 45 minutes to one hour. Then you should start studying. If you need more assistance or guidance from my side feel free to contact me either through appointment so that I can help you over one this problem. Take care. Be cool. With regards,

Focus on losing weight and your negative thoughts will change to positive. Eat minimum fats and carbs, more proteins, simple foods like toned milk and curds. Exercise is good for body and mind. Learn to focus on one thing at a time when negative feelings prop up. Do some activities which require focusing like reading good books, some job to do on computers, some social work like teaching little kids for an hour a day or helping your over worked mother in kitchen. Do try for a month and write back to get more guidance from any of us here.

You are being treated for Generalized anxiety disorder and this medication is the lowest dose. You should never discontinue medication without doctor's advice. The symptoms you describe are typical side effects of this medicine. Hello Doctor, my psychiatric doctor prescribed me Fortinerv, Depran -5, klonaz md 0.25 1st and 3rd is for the morning and the 2nd one is for night as I told him to reduce my medication and I want to stop having medication. By giving this prescription am I able to get rid of this medication slowly? I think that before you ask your doctor to reduce your medication, make sure you are complying with all the requirements as prescribed. Now if you are serious to want to reduce the medication, you must also work with a counselor and develop some skills and techniques to help you cope with the daily challenges of this condition. Then, as you improve in behavior and coping skills, the doctor will reduce the medication but in such a manner that it will help tease the brain to produce the same naturally. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

I am sure you are one of many who has not combined medication with therapy. This will give you partial recovery. There are so many challenges that depressed people face and there are so many ways of dealing with it. Counseling from a professional will definitely help in discovering those techniques to learn to cope with these difficulties. You will definitely notice the difference and life will be a lot better for it.

Pregnancy is a physiological process and not a pathology (disease) we have put lots of what is to be done and what not, which is only creating hindrances in a natural process. Trust you body's intelligence. Birthing in animals is a such a smooth process, body takes care of everything. Ovarian cyst is not very uncommon. Just follow your gynaec's advice and enjoy this rare change, which will bring so much of joy to you. Remember fear and stress only harms the baby inside. Take a counseling session if you must. Relax.

My hubby keeps tobacco in his mouth. He is not at all able to stop it. So I am worried. Can any 1 please help me to make him stop it. I am fed up of explaining it's side effects. But he is that much addicted to it. He used nicotex and again stopped it and started tobacco again.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Never give up on him. After many attempts he is bound to succeed. I understand your frustration but be patient because as soon as you give up, he will too. Sometimes, it will be your motivation that will goad him on. But be very careful that you don? t nag him. You are what is called a? co-dependent, that is you have become dependent on him dependent on tobacco. You can at the most just remind him, get help for him and then leave it up to him. Ideally, if the motivation comes from him, it is the best. Sometimes, he will need to suffer some complications that will act as a? nail in the coffin? before he is ready to go for help. In addiction parlance, it is called? hitting rock bottom. In the meantime, he should be taken to an addiction counselor and start the process of cleaning up his act. Hypnosis will also help. Whenever he stops, immediately supplement his oral need with some substitute like candies, nicotine gums, juices, soups etc. Also have him visit a dentist and thoroughly clean up his mouth so that he feels bad about staining them again.

Simple answer no! homeopathy or for that matter any other form of treatment (ayurveda, unani) does not have 100% cure for depression. Your dose of cipralex is too low! with proper medicine doses & certain lifestyle modifications, you can get better for sure! good luck.
