How to effectively handle work related stress

The statistics on stress at workplace are staggering with half of respondents in studies reporting that they face higher than normal stress levels at work. Stress is a silent killer and can lead to serious health issues like stroke and heart attack. Stress at the workplace could be due to excessive workloads, unclear responsibilities, lack of control, unrealistic deadlines and noisy work environment.

While it is a good thing to be competitive and excel in whatever you are doing, it is also very important to learn to tackle stress and take life easy. Remember, we live only once! here are some simple and effective ways to handle workplace stress:

1. Seek support at work

Research has shown that having one good friend at work reduces the chances of quitting. Sharing your thoughts with another person not only reduces the stress levels but also might lead to discovering new ways to handle tough situations. Take proactive steps to be more friendly and sociable at work.

2. Manage work better

Try prioritizing better and not expecting perfection in every task. In case your role is over-loaded, try talking to your manager to reduce the load or if possible, delegate some work. Accept that you have certain limits to your productivity and do not try to prove yourself by over-working.

3. Get moving

It is a proven fact that exercises in any form reduces stress levels. Try to exercise for half an hour daily in the form walking, swimming, playing a sport or running. You can take short walking breaks at work that can add up to half an hour in a day.

4. Try breathing exercises

Breathing deeply for four counts on inhale and exhale can reduce stress levels immediately. You can try alternating breathing exercise i. E. Long inhale with one nostril and exhaling with the other nostril, which brings focus and energy in the morning before starting work.

5. Take a power nap

10 minutes of shut eye goes a long way in recharging your tired brain. Any longer than 15 minutes will end up making you groggy. Just put your head down on the desk, and clear your mind of all thoughts for 10 minutes.

6. Eat right

Food has a big role to play in determining our stress levels. Avoid processed food, sugar and high amount of refined carbs like flour, white rice etc. Maintaining your blood glucose levels by eating more complex carbohydrates that are slowly digested like ragi, jowar, bajra gives you steady energy levels throughout the day.

7. Get enough sleep

Over-worked employees often cut back on sleep and try to squeeze in work at night. Over the long term, this practice can severely impact your health and leads to more stress. A restful night's sleep of at least 6 hours is mandatory for all adults. Lack of sleep causes irritability and diminished ability to deal with stress. Avoid looking at laptop, tv or phone screens when you are trying to fall asleep.

You have to take charge of your own work-life balance and draw the line where you feel uncomfortable since no one will do it for you. Over-working might give benefits in the short term in terms of recognition and promotion, but it causes emotional, mental and physical burnout in the long term. Stay healthy, stay happy.

I have anxiety problem heart beat goes faster when I got nervous. Anxiety disorder is curable or not?
Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Hi .Appreciate your effort to seek help! It must be very difficult situation for you to be in. You have mentioned that you were very bright in studies and were scoring really well but from past 2 years you seem to be getting anxious while studying and thats interfering with the study process. Please try to remember what happened 2 years back that could have influenced you. What career have you chosen/ thought of? Also are you studying the subjects that you are interested in and which will help you in fulfilling your career goal? Are you under any kind of external pressure to perform or high expectations from others? Are people around you anxious about your studies too? Answer these questions for yourself and see if you can understand what's happening. If you are unable to help yourself then you can approach your school counsellor or any counsellor outside to share whats bothering you and gain awareness. Talking to your parents may also help if theres room for expressing your difficulties. For your reducing your anxiety try to set small study goals for yourself and ensure you complete them. You can learn memorising techniques. Understanding the concepts will provide better results. When you make study goals, ensure they are doable and specific. Between your study times do have very short intervals to refresh/relax yourself. You can do mindful breathing (couple of slow deep breaths with focus on breathing) to calm yourself down when you sense anxiety setting in. Eat well balanced food divided into 6 small meals, do some exercise and sleep well. Also focus on what you talk to yourself. Keeping your self-talk positive and motivational is important to keep anxiety away. Looking into what really is triggering the anxiety will be helpful. Hope this helps. If not then surely seek counselling. All the best!

Hi Lybrate user yes this type of situation really affect any individual but if you are not in family then join your family or go near to your dear ones if not possible then consult any psychiatrist so that he can advise you short-term therapy for your problems so that you can do your work and take sound sleep. Remember time is best healer and try to swing your mood. Choose what is best for you. Mean life and your responsibility. Wishing you a healthier life.

IBS is said to occur in usually highly anxious individuals or people who smoke and consume alcohol. IBS usually occurs during stressful times, if you skip breakfast too. Rather than drugs proper diet pattern, avoiding smoking if any and doing relaxation exercises can help. If you feel very anxious you can consider taking anti anxiety drugs. Be relaxed stay healthy.

You can resolve this problem. There are two problems here: fear and intimidation in front of people.You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.

You can come out of depression but you need to combine counseling with medication. In counseling, you will learn a lot of skills and techniques that will help you to meet the daily challenges in life for that of a depressed person. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am loving one person, but he is not much caring me. He loves and take care of me only when I am near to him. I want to forget him and lead my life or I want to make him to love me more. What should I do. Do I need to take counseling. And if want to do any work or anything always negative vibes are coming in mind like I can't do this and I may lose in this. I want to improve my positive energy. I am reserved type and I can't move freely with everyone. I want to change that attitude and want to be free and jovial with everyone. Please suggest me the solution. Thank You.

Respected Sir, The fact that you mention that you were suffering from Depression and GAD since 7 years and took treatment only for 2 would lead me to believe that you were either irregular in your treatment or inadequately treated. If that is the case, the symptoms you mentioned are clearly due to persisting of your depression. On the other hand if you have been taking the drugs regularly and still have these symptoms, that would make yours a resistant case. I would have to know the drugs that you had been taking to help you out further, if you feel that you were resistant even after complying with the treatment.

Yes, you can start the medication right away but you must also do counseling. Depression and anxiety go together for many people. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.

Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. To improve your sleep please do the following too: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Hi lybrate-user It is good to see that you have reached out for help to work on your stammering. I understand the difficulty it must be causing as you try to express your thoughts & opinions but find yourself getting stuck and in turn losing your self confidence. I understand how embarrassed you would feel when it happens before important stakeholders like a senior person at work, during a team meeting, when you are trying to make a point etc. Sachin to help you cope with stammering, could you share with me what happened recently that made you reach out for help? In your query, you have mentioned the intensity keeps on changing… Have you seen a pattern in situations when it becomes worse like talking to people of opposite gender, talking to a person in authority, addressing a group, statements starting with certain alphabets, etc. Stammering could result from physical or psychological factors. Consulting a speech therapist would be the first step. If you have already done that and find yourself stammering when you are experiencing stress, anxiety or other heightened emotions, I, as a counsellor could help you manage your emotions and effective ways of dealing with stammering. Regards

Hello lybrate-user, I can understand your concern. In your case you can go with 5 mg daily for 1 month. After that you can divide 5 mg tablet in to 4 parts and start taking 3/4th means 3.75 mg for 3 weeks and later on 1/2 (2.5 mg) and 1/4th (1.25 mg) tablet gradually in same manner to prevent withdrawal. Apart form this relaxation techniques, yoga and meditation can help. Take care. For detail consultation and queries you can contact me on www.Lybrate.com/drchintan. Take care and wish you good health.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me.

Dear Lybrate user, 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.

While it is well known that smoking causes lung cancer, heavy smokers with diabetes are also at increased risk of death from causes other than lung cancer, according to a study being presented next week at the annual meeting of the radiological society of north america (rsna).

Diabetes is a chronic illness in which there are high levels of glucose in the blood. More than 29 million people in the u. S. Have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released by the centers for disease control and prevention. One in four people with diabetes doesn't know he or she has it. Having diabetes can also put people at risk for numerous other health complications.

To determine the extent to which diabetes is associated with deaths from lung cancer, other cancers, and other causes among heavy smokers, researchers examined the risk for all-cause mortality among people with and without diabetes within the national lung screening trial (nlst), a massive, multicenter trial that compared low-dose helical ct with chest x-ray for early detection of lung cancer in current and former heavy smokers.

" in our study, we found a statistically significant link between diabetes and all-cause deaths, non-lung cancer deaths and lung cancer deaths in women" said kavita garg, m. D, professor of radiology from the university of colorado -- denver.

For the study, Dr. Garg and colleagues looked at data from 53, 454 participants in the nlst and identified 5, 174 participants who reported having diabetes at screening.

They conducted an analysis of the relative risk for overall mortality, lung cancer mortality, and non-lung cancer mortality associated with diabetes, adjusting for age, gender, body mass index (bmi), and pack-years of smoking. Over the course of the study, there were 3, 936 total deaths, including 1, 021 from lung cancer and 826 from cancers not of the lung.

Participants with diabetes tended to be older, reported more pack-years of smoking, and had a higher bmi than those without diabetes. There were 650 deaths (12.6 percent of patients) among participants with diabetes and 3, 286 deaths (6.8 percent of patients) among participants without diabetes.

" we found that diabetes doubles the risk for all-cause mortality and non-lung cancer mortality among heavy smokers" Dr. Garg said" we also found that women with diabetes have an increased risk of lung-cancer mortality, but did not find the same effect in men"

The researchers continue to analyze data in an effort to better understand the underlying cause. In the meantime, Dr. Garg emphasizes the importance of taking control of diabetes and undergoing lung cancer screening if you're a smoker.

" patients have to take care of their diabetes to maximize the benefit of ct screening for lung cancer" she said" it truly makes a magnitude of difference in mortality risk"

Respected Sir, If the doctor you consulted was a psychiatrist and he felt that there was a need for you to take them after his evaluation, I am inclined to agree with him. However you are right that there are withdrawal symptoms on stopping Paroxetine abruptly. Hence if you wish to stop these drugs, I would advise you to discuss the same with your doc so that he can taper and stop accordingly. The withdrawal symptoms are also temporary and hardly last more than 2 weeks. I am not entirely sure what you meant by natural method, but there are various forms of psychotherapy that can also help you with your anxiety. Good luck.

Dear Lybrate user, It seems like it was a very traumatic experience for you to miss out on your exams, but if I underatand you correctly, you have the opportunity to do your exams in about three months, and you are able to study for them and do them? So it sounds to me that the best way to come out of this trauma is to do the exams the next time you can, and be gentle to yourself on the way there. The guilt you are feeling for not showing up the first time is not helping you. Try instead to see what you might learn from this experience and see that whatever reasons you had for not showing up, you just couldn't make it that time. All the best!

I was a chain smoker but now started gym. How can I increase my stamina and clear my lungs.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
To increase your stamina you need to exercise regularly and increase the time and intensity of your exercise. While exercising it is very important to breathe only through your nostrils. Aerobic exercise is the best and pay less emphasis on weight training as such. When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well maybe a little less. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged upon. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need.
