Track your stressors Keep a journal for a week or two to identify which situations create the most stress and how you respond to them. Record your thoughts, feelings and information about the environment, including the people and circumstances involved, the physical setting and how you reacted. Did you raise your voice? Get a snack from the vending machine? Go for a walk? Taking notes can help you find patterns among your stressors and your reactions to them Develop healthy responses  Instead of attempting to fight stress with fast food or alcohol, do your best to make healthy choices when you feel the tension rise. Exercise is a great stress-buster. Also make time for hobbies and favorite activities. Whether it's reading a novel, going to concerts or playing games with your family, make sure to set aside time for the things that bring you pleasure. Getting enough good-quality sleep is also important for stress management Take time to recharge Don't let your vacation days go to waste. When possible, take time off to relax, so you come back to work feeling rejevenuated and ready to perform at your best. Just a positve change in your lifestyle will lead to stress free and healthy (physically and mentally) life.

Everyone has frightening or anxious moments. This particular feeling may stop you from living a normal life. If you are prone to anxiety you have two choices. Give in to it or learn to live with it.  When you wake up tomorrow start doing something right away, and keep busy all day.  Sometimes it's doing the dishes or working in your garden, reading or meditating. Just sitting around and thinking about your worries won't make them go away. Focus your attention on where the feeling of anxiousness is in your body and keep your attention there until the feeling moves or dissolves. Anxiety will grow if it's not directed into some positive action. Find someone who needs you and lend him or her a helping hand. It will almost always take your mind off your problems and fears. Helping others is actually a way of taking action and responsibility for your own healing Talk to someone. Following all these will automatically reduces your worries and anxiety level and will let you to take rest and you will sleep well.

Emotions can get pretty complicated when a pet dies. For example: you may feel angry if your friends don't seem to realize how much losing your pet means to you. Or perhaps you feel guilty that you didn't spend more time with your pet before he or she died. It's natural to feel a range of emotions when a pet dies. If you're like a lot of people, you may have had someone say to you, "Sorry, but it was only an animal. So is it normal to get upset over the death of a pet? Absolutely. After all, by the time we reach our teenage years, many of us have grown up with our pets, and they're part of the family. Just like losing a family member, when a pet dies people can go through a period of grieving. Dealing With Grief Grief can show up in many ways. Some people cry a lot. For others, the death may take a while to sink in. Some people temporarily lose interest in the things they enjoy doing or want to spend some quiet time alone. Others will want to keep busy to take their minds off the loss. It's also natural to feel like avoiding situations that involved your pet — such as the park where you used to walk your dog. For many people, losing a pet can be their first experience with death. Recognizing and sorting out feelings can be a big help. 1. Talking about a loss is one of the best ways to cope, which is why people get together after a funeral and share memories or stories about the person who has died. 2. Acknowledging your grief by talking about it with friends and family members can help you begin to feel better. 3.Recording them in a journal is helpful to many people, as is keeping a scrapbook. You can also write about your pet in a story or poem, draw a picture, or compose music. 4. Or plan a funeral or memorial service for your pet. Some people choose to make a donation in a pet's memory to an animal shelter or even volunteer there. All of these ideas can help you hold on to the good and happy memories. You'll never forget your pet. But in time the painful feelings will ease. And when the time comes, you may even find yourself ready to open your home to a new pet in need of a loving family.

Panic attacks can be terrifying. These attacks stem from profound anxiety that can make your heart pound and your knees go weak. Stop and think. When your thoughts start spinning out of control, simply tell yourself to stop. Organize your thoughts and decide what you need to do to get yourself calm again. Think positively. Push negative thoughts out of your mind, and remind yourself that you are in control. Think about times when you've been able to manage situations successfully and reduce anxiety. Stand up for yourself. If you need to leave a situation, do so or tell someone you need to leave. Don't be afraid to ask for help. Allowing yourself to become more upset will not help if what you really need is to take a walk and blow off some steam. Relax your muscles. Anxiety causes your entire body to tense up, so make a conscious effort to relax each muscle from your toes all the way up to your neck and face.

Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t just will yourself to “snap out of it,” but you do have more control than you realize - even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. 1.Look for support from people who make you feel safe and cared for. 2.Make face-time a priority. 3.Care a pet 4.Do things you enjoy (or used to) 5.Spend some time in nature 6.List what you like about yourself 7.Read a good book 8.Watch a funny movie or TV show 9.Take a long, hot bath 10. Take care of a few small tasks 11. Talk to friends or family face-to-face 12. Listen to music 13. Do something spontaneous If you’ve taken self-help steps and made positive lifestyle changes and still find your depression getting worse, seek Clinical Psychologist.

Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.

Suffering from Trichotillomania. Is there anything I could do to suppress the phenomenon and treat it?

Awareness Enhancement- your action tends to be an automatic behavior. The first step in treatment then is to carefully study your pattern by becoming aware of when you are performing the action. This will help you determine the circumstances that contribute to do the action, such as mood (e.g. Lonely, bored, angry), time of day (e.g. Early morning, getting home from work), and activity (e.g. Working at desk, watching TV). Understanding your pattern provides valuable information for developing a successful treatment program. Alternative Behaviors – can be done when you get an urge Stimulus Control – This involves managing your environment with the goal of limiting the triggers that lead to and allow pulling. For example, if you only do while you’re alone, try to be around other people, leave the bathroom door open, etc, while you work on gaining confidence. Detect situations likely to lead to pulling or actual urges to pull (ideally, before or as soon as pulling starts). Immediately engage your alternative behavior. Repeat this sequence at least 6 times per day for practice, whether or not you are having urges to pull. Use this sequence every time you have an urge to pull. Repeat it as often as necessary.

I am 16 years old boy my final exam of class 10 will start from 10 march but I am not able to focus on my studies.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Its not too late to give a start for your preparation. Change the way of studying. Reintegrate If you happen to forget something you studied before try to remember the situation and place in which you studied it and it will surely help you to remember it. If you have studied in tension or without interest chances of remembering it are very negliglble. A mind without tension is the best road to success. Intervals is necessary to give the brain some time to catch up. Try to give an interval in every 40 minutes of about 10 minutes. If you study fearing the exam then probably you will forget half the portion.
