Did you know that you may be suffering from Panic Disorder if you are having panic attacks?

A person visits the doctor if he/she is suffering from any illness. However, in case of any mental illness or condition, one either is not aware or ignores it. Many patients also opt for self-treatment measures which are not advisable.

Panic disorder is one of the most common mental illnesses observed in most of the people. The patient suffers from panic attacks in such cases. These attacks are a sudden surge of fear and anxiety. Know about it and take necessary steps if and when it happens.

Symptoms of a Panic Disorder
It is difficult to recognize any mental illness, especially a panic disorder as most of the symptoms of a panic attack are similar to that of a heart attack. However, there are a few symptoms, which help people identify and differentiate between panic attack and heart attack. Some of these are listed below

  1. Pounding of the heart
  2. Discomfort or chest pain
  3. Hyperventilation or shortness of breath
  4. Shaking or trembling
  5. Feeling detached from the surrounding
  6. Excessive sweating
  7. Choking
  8. Nausea
  9. Tingling sensation
  10. Cold flashes
  11. Feeling of losing control or dying

Causes of having panic attacks
It is almost impossible to identify the exact reason behind the panic attack as various incidents cause the condition. A genetic tendency is one of the major reasons behind the panic attacks. Stress is another primary reason behind these attacks and is common for those people who have recently joined college, a new workplace or are newly married. A panic attack can also be due to other physical or medical conditions.

How to deal with Panic Attacks?
The best way to deal with panic attacks is to consult a professional, who will advise or help the patient handle the situations. If the doctor is not available, then it is suggested to follow a few measures that might help one deal with the condition.

A few measures to follow-

  1. It is recommended to avoid any addictive activity such as smoking or drinking as it aggravates panic disorder and increases the frequency in which a person might have panic attacks.
  2. It is advised to learn to control the breathing as this helps a lot during the panic attacks. When an attack sets in, the patient loses control over breathing and suffers from shortness of breath, which increases the effect of the attack. It is advised to take deep breaths as it helps improve the situation and relieve the mind from stress.
  3. It is suggested to exercise and practice relaxation techniques regularly as this helps control the situation. This also reduced the magnitude and frequency of the panic attack, as it calms the mind, thus relieving stress.

Panic disorder is a serious issue, which if not handled properly might lead to severe problems. Hence, it is advised to seek the advice of a professional at the early stage.

How To Help Your Child To Manage Stress And Reduce Anxiety?

While you may think childhood was a carefree period of your life, the same thing does not hold true for children nowadays. Stress is a condition everybody suffers, be it adults or children. If we talk about children, they will need external help to deal with and manage their stress as they may​ ​ not​ ​ even​ ​ know​ ​ they​ ​ are​ ​ going​ ​ through​ ​ any​ ​ problem.As cliche as it may sound, ​ your child is your joy and responsibility as well. You are the first person​ ​ who​ ​ can​ ​ recognize​ ​ if​ ​ your​ ​ child​ ​ is​ ​in troubled,​ ​ anxious​ ​ or​ ​ going​ ​ through​ ​ some​ ​ stress.Let​ ​ me​ ​ get​ ​ you​ ​ started​ ​ with​ ​ a ​ ​ few​ ​ key​ ​ pointers​ ​ to​ ​ detect​ ​ if​ ​ your​ ​ child​ ​ is​ ​ under​ ​ stress.

How​ ​ To​ ​ Know​ ​ If​ ​ My​ ​ Child​ ​ Is​ ​ Under​ ​ Stress ?​ ​

Let’s​ ​ Find​ ​ Out- Kids who are under stress often have trouble with their mood and behavior. You may notice slight​ ​ changes​ ​ like​ ​ unnecessary​ ​ tantrums,​ ​ crying,​ ​ health​ ​ issues​ ​ or​ ​ getting​ ​ irritated​ ​ easily.
Further, the child may withdraw from their favorite activities like playing or going outside. Most often, such kids complain of irregular headaches or stomach ache and have a sudden change in
their​ ​ sleeping​ ​ and​ ​ eating​ ​ pattern.Also, you may notice these kids refusing to go to school and indulging in self-negative talk. That being said, you must remember every child is different and may show other signs of stress. As a parent,​ ​ it​ ​ is​ ​ your​ ​ duty​ ​ to​ ​ help​ ​ your​ ​ child​ ​ out​ ​ and​​ ​ let ​ ​ them ​ ​ know ​ ​ that ​ ​ it’s ​ ​ okay ​.Now, let me share the few things that as a parent can help you handle the situation and teachyour​ ​ kid​ ​ to​ ​ manage​ ​ stress​ ​ and​ ​ reduce​ ​ anxiety​ ​ in​ ​ them.

How​ ​ Can​ ​ I ​ ​ Help​ ​ My​ ​ Child​ ​ Manage​ ​ Stress​ ​ and​ ​ Reduce​ ​ His​ ​ Anxiety ?

1.​ ​ Encourage​ ​ Them​ ​ To​ ​ Face​ ​ Their​ ​ Fears– If your child is under stress due to a situation that is fearsome for them, it is time to teach them how to face it. The fear of getting in an anxiety provoking situation can further increase the anxiety in your child. However, if you let them know how they can go “one step at a time”, their fears​ ​ will​ ​ variably​ ​ reduce​ ​ and​ ​ the​ ​ anxiety​ ​ that​ ​ kicks​ ​ in​ ​ will​ ​ stop​ ​ as​ ​ well. If you can’t take larger steps, it’s okay. Just take baby steps. Remember each step counts when it​ ​ is​ ​ taken​ ​ in​ ​ the​ ​ right​ ​ direction.

2.​ ​ Listen​ ​ To​ ​ Your​ ​ Child- Be your child’s best friend and confidante. Listen to them carefully and attentively. Ask them what’s bothering them. You may feel that your child doesn’t want to open up. But sadly, it is
farther​ ​ from​ ​ the​ ​ truth. Most often, children can’t put a label to what they are feeling. This is a time when you can step in and talk to them. Initiate a conversation. Say something like, “ It seems like you’re sad about
what happened in the school.” or “how are you feeling today?”. Try emoticons like a happy face,sad​ ​ face,​ ​joyful,​ ​ and​ ​ more.​ ​ Let​ ​ them​ ​ identify​ ​ their​ ​ emotions​ ​ and​ ​ connect​ ​ with​ ​ it.Make​ ​ it​ ​ a ​ ​ free​ ​ flowing​ conversation​ ​ and​ ​ let​ ​ your​ ​ child​ ​ share​ ​ his​ ​ concerns​ ​ and​ ​ problems.It is important to hear them out without any blames, anger, or judgement. When you’ll listen tothem, be patient. Let them speak. They’ll know there is someone they can talk to and it’ll help them​ ​ cope​ ​ with​ ​ their​ ​ stress​ ​ more​ ​ easily.

3.​ ​ Focus​ ​ on​ ​ Positive​ ​ Aspects- Stressed or anxious children can often indulge in negative and self-critical talks. This thinking can slowly creep in every aspect of their life and lead to low-self esteem. Your voice becomes their inner voice. You can save your child by teaching him to ​ see the silver lining under the dark ​ ​ cloud ​. ​ ​Also,​ ​ remember​ ​ your​ ​ child​ ​ does​ ​ what​ ​ he​ ​ sees​ ​ you​ ​ doing.You’re the biggest role model for your child. ​ Before you preach, practice it yourself. Never worry that he is not taking your command, worry that he is watching and observing your actions.
Handle your stress in an ideal way and encourage your child to adopt positive thinking as well.You’ll​ ​ be​ ​ surprised​ ​ how​ ​ small​ ​ changes​ ​ will​ ​ reflect​ ​ immensely​ ​ in​ ​ your​ ​ child’s​ ​ life.

4.​ ​ Educate​ ​ Your​ ​ Child​ ​ To​ ​ Understand​ ​ Their​ ​ Bodies- Your body talks to you. The slight changes can help you detect if you’re overworking yourself or following​ ​ a ​ ​good​ ​ routine.​ ​ Similarly,​ ​ your​ ​ child’s​ ​ body​ ​ goes​ ​ through​ ​ the​ ​ same​ ​ process. Educate your child to understand their bodies and the physiology of the stress. Tell them how
the butterflies they feel in their stomach on the first day of their new class is okay. However,
consistent tummy aches or headaches are a sign that something is not right. It means the child
is​ ​ undergoing​ ​ some​ ​ stress.
These health issues like nausea, muscle pain, low energy and repetitive complains are strong
symptoms​ ​ that​ ​ your​ ​ child​ ​ is​ ​ under​ ​ stress.​ ​ Just​ ​ pay​ ​ attention​ ​ and​ ​ never​ ​ ignore​ ​ such​ ​ signs.

5.​ ​ Engage​ ​ Your​ ​ Child​ ​ In​ ​ Relaxing​ ​ Activities- School exams, co-curricular activities, home tuitions, sports. These are just few of the activities that​ ​ today’s​ ​ children​ ​ have​ ​ to​ ​ do​ ​ in​ ​ a ​ ​ single​ ​ day.​ ​ All​ ​ work​ ​ and​ ​ no​ ​ play​ ​ makes​ ​ Jack​ ​ a ​ ​ dull​ ​ boy. Nowadays, even play (Read: Sports) have become a serious competition for kids and less of a stress buster. I’d suggest you to engage your child in relaxing activities like art or sketching. Just ask​ ​ them​ ​ to​ ​ free​ ​ draw​ ​ anything​ ​ they​ ​ like​ ​ with​ ​ their​ ​ fingers,​ ​ if​ ​ you​ ​ can. P.S​ . It’ll also help you analyze what’s going in your child’s mind by taking their color choices into consideration. For instance, picking a lot of darker shades is often considered a sign ofaggression. You can check the color psychology guides for further analysis of your child behavior. Further, this “​ ART THERAPY​ ” can help your child unveil their deep-rooted emotions and thoughts at the sub-conscious level. Some children also feel relaxed when they write out their emotions​ ​ or​ ​ dance,​ ​ for​ ​ instance. Help your child figure out what they love and you’ll see a great change in their stress management​ ​ and​ ​ life​ ​ as​ ​ well.

6.​ ​ Tell​ ​ Them​ ​ It​ ​ Is​ ​ Okay​ ​ To​ ​ Mess​ ​ Up- No one is perfect. Now that’s a fact. While everybody around us is aiming for perfection, children often feel stressed or anxiety when they underperform or get bad grades. Tell them it’s okay​ ​ to​ ​ mess​ ​ up​ ​ and​ ​ just​ ​ fine.​ ​ Share​ ​ your​ ​ failed​ ​ experiences​ ​ and​ ​ what​ ​ you​ ​ learnt​ ​ from​ ​ them.It’s okay to mess up. Everyone does that. The best part is when you keep going even after a
failure. ​ That’s ​ ​ what’s ​ ​ important.

What​ ​ Else​ ​ Can​ ​ I ​ ​ Do​ ​ To​ ​ Make​ ​ My​ ​ Child​ ​ Feel​ ​ Better ?
There are just a few more things you can practice with your child to reduce their stress and anxiety​ ​ issues.
a) Use ​ positive affirmations with your child and educate them about its benefits. Say things like, “​ I am calm. I am peaceful. I am happy. I am beautiful. ​ ” These small statements will makeyour little one feel happy and in bliss. Never address your child with “don’t do this that.”. Instead focus​ ​ on​ ​ saying​ ​ “do​ ​ this​ ​ or​ ​ that”.

b) Children become what you make of them. They are like wet clay in your hands. Tell them it is important to be happy. Practice gratitude. Ask them to daily say thanks and offer gratitude for their life and the uncountable blessings they have. This will make them understand the importance​ ​ of​ ​ being​ ​ grateful​ ​ and​ ​ a ​ ​ lot​ ​ to​ ​ be​ ​ happy​ ​ for.

c) ​ Practice relaxing exercises with your child. The very basic relaxing exercises like taking three deep breaths or counting from 1-10 backwards slowly can help your kid a great deal to just​ ​ slow​ ​ down​ ​ the​ ​ messy​ ​ thoughts​ ​ and​ ​ actually​ ​ focus​ ​ on​ ​ the​ ​ present.Aggressive children can greatly benefit from this technique to help them control their tantrums and​ ​ just​ ​ relax.

d) Lastly, you can introduce your child to progressive muscle relaxation. Put on some good and positive instrumental music (You may search Zen Garden on Youtube) and teach your kids to relax​ ​ their​ ​ bodies​ ​ starting​ ​ from​ ​ the​ ​ toes​ ​ to​ ​ their​ ​ head.They’ll get a hang of it after 2-3 practices. This body muscle relaxation technique calms themind​ ​ and​ ​ helps​ ​ release​ ​ stress​ ​ in​ ​ both​ ​ children​ ​ and​ ​ adults.

e) You can also practice chanting while waking up or putting your child to sleep. OM is a universal mantra that even scientists have found to be highly effective. If you can, teach your children​ ​ to​ ​ chant​ ​ Gayatri​ ​ Mantra..This​ ​ will​ ​ open​ ​ up​ ​ the​ ​ subconscious​ ​ power​ ​ of​ ​ your​ ​ child. Finally,​ ​ Just​ ​ Be​ ​ There​ ​ For​ ​ Your​ ​ Child.You love your child and they know it. However, this busy life doesn’t let you shower them with
love and attention as much as you want. Don’t feel any guilt over it. Children nowadays are intelligent. They understand if you explain your situation with right words and love. Kids today
also prefer quality time over quantity. Give your child an hour of love, care, and undivided attention.​ ​ Never​ ​ forget​ ​ to​ ​ maintain​ ​ eye​ ​ contact​ ​ and​ ​ a ​ ​ loving​ ​ touch.​ ​ Play,​ ​ relax​ ​ or​ ​ just​ ​ listen.

This one hour of quality time will bring your child closer to you and away from any stress or anxiety. If you still feel confused with the behavior of your child, that’s okay. Just ask an expert or a child psychologist who can get your child out of the situation and help you with better parenting​ ​ tips.

I hope this post was helpful for you and your child. Remember, your child needs you andsometimes just being there is enough.

Violence In A Relationship - 5 Warning Signs You Need To Be Aware Of!

Relationships are either delicate or strong, depending upon the bonding you share with your partner. The bonding depends on various factors. Some of the most essential ones being emotional attachment, friendliness, sense of ease, mental compatibility and a feeling of sustained emotional support from the relationship. This is applicable to all relationships; be it a relationship with your spouse, a parental relation with your children, a relationship with your friends, relatives, etc.

However, it is a common factor that every relationship requires a definite level of friendship, understanding and trust to sustain. However, sometimes you may find eventual signs of distance or detachment, which could be signals of potential violence in the relationship.

  1. Sense of complete possession: This is a vital factor that intricately works behind initiating violence in relationships. Possessiveness is a form of extreme emotional condition. A sense of possessiveness lies in every relation. However, over possessiveness leads you to restrict your loved one to share his love with anyone else. It can even be severe when you may even dislike your loved one talking to anyone else. Therefore, it may lead to eventual abuse or violence in the relationship.
  2. Distrust: Trust and belief are essential elements in any relation. If you tend to lose trust on someone, you can hardly be normal in the relationship. Disbelief results in doubt and continued doubt and resistance lead you to react violently. If you constantly disbelief a person, you are ought to react out of your general personality sometime.
  3. Abuse: Use of abusive language may be a strong indication of emerging distance in a relation. A person indulges in using abusive language out of anger and frustration, both of which could be major signals of potential violence in the near future. Both abusive language and physical violence are considered as forms of violence. Therefore, initial signs of abuses should be considered immediately.
  4. Dominance: In every relationship where two persons are involved, you will usually find any one of them to be dominant. However, that is acceptable until the dominance is within a certain limit. However, if it crosses the limits of patience and acceptability, it may sometimes result in violence.
  5. Short temper Attitude: If any one of the involved persons in the relationship is short tempered, it will definitely be a lead reason of miscommunication or insufficient communication. Short tempered individuals are mostly characterised with low patience. If you do not have patience, you can never offer understanding. And above that, short-tempered attitude can be an additional disadvantage. These types of individuals fail to control their anxiety and can often be violent in relationships.

Anxiety Disorder - 6 Ways To Identify It!

Anxiety Disorder - 6 Ways To Identify It!

Everyone feel worried about things at one point of time or the other. However, for some people, this can go to an extreme and become a disorder. Anxiety disorder is a common mental health condition that can make people anxious about trivial things for days and months so much so that it interferes with their everyday life. Not everyone exhibits the same signs of anxiety disorder. Some people show only mental signs while it impacts the physical health of others.

Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of anxiety disorder.

  1. Excessive worrying: Getting worried about small things and staying worried about them for days and weeks is a characteristic sign of anxiety disorder. Often it can be triggered by factors that are out of the person’s control. Excessive worrying can also be described as being worried about multiple things on most days of the week.
  2. Sleep Problems: Anxiety can affect the quantity and quality of sleep a person gets. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, it could be a sign of anxiety disorder. While this is common when you have an important meeting or task scheduled for the following day, experiencing this regularly is something you should not ignore.
  3. Irrational fearIn many cases, anxiety is triggered by a specific factor such as being in a crowded space or flying. The anxiety created by exposure to these factors can often be out of proportion to the actual chance of anything going wrong. This type of anxiety may not always be obvious.
  4. Muscle tension: Anxiety can translate into muscle tension as well. This may be visible in the form of clenched fists, a tight jaw or flexed muscles. In many cases, these symptoms often become part of the person’s personality and hence go undetected for years.
  5. IndigestionChronic digestive problems are often a sign of anxiety disorder. This can be characterized by bloating, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, gas or constipation. This is because the gut is very sensitive to psychological imbalances. Indigestion can also contribute to anxiety disorders by making the person uncomfortable.
  6. Self-consciousness: Anxiety can make a person feel as though they are in the spotlight. This can make them feel uncomfortable and result in social withdrawal. Often people suffering from anxiety find it hard to speak in front of a crowd or even have long one-on-one conversations. This can make it hard for them to meet new people and develop relationships.

Aggressive Behaviour In Children - 5 Ways It Can Be Managed!

Aggressive Behaviour In Children - 5 Ways It Can Be Managed!

Anger is a normal emotion. Children are as susceptible to anger as are adults. However, children may not understand how to deal with their anger properly. This can result in tantrums and violent behaviour. Telling a child not to get angry is not the solution to this problem. Instead, a child must be taught how to channelize his or her anger. Here are 5 tips that could help deal with aggressive behaviour.

  1. Do not use physical punishments as a form of discipline: Children inculcate actions they see at home. While you may hit your child out of frustration when he or she does something wrong, the child may see this as an acceptable form of venting anger. Thus, hitting your child can indirectly reinforce a child’s aggressive behaviour. Just as you do not expect your child to go about hitting other people, do not hit him yourself.
  2. Develop a feeling vocabulary: A child’s aggressive behaviour is usually the result of frustration at not being able to explain what he or she may be experiencing. Thus, encourage your child to develop a vocabulary to speak his mind. Teach them to use words like angry, frustrated, irritated and anxious. When your child says that he or she is angry, do not ignore him but encourage him to talk it out. You could also encourage them to find other creative outlets for their anger such as drawing and painting.
  3. Praise good behaviour: All children seek appreciation. When your child deals with anger is a good way, praise him and reinforce the behaviour. This lets your child know that his behaviour is being noticed. Tell your child it is ok to be angry as long as it is dealt with in the right way.
  4. Set firm limits: Children need limits to know what sort of behaviour is acceptable and what isn’t. These limits should be kept very clear and consistent. The child’s teachers and other caregivers should also be made aware of these rules along with the response to be given if the child breaks a rule. When a child does cross the limits set by you, they should be immediately reprimanded so that they understand their mistake.
  5. Let your child cool off: It is no use trying to explain why something the child has done is wrong when they are in a state of anger. Instead, give them time to cool down by telling them to go to their room or sit down someplace. Once the child has cooled off, explain why his or her behaviour was wrong and discuss ways he or she could have dealt with the situation better.

Biohack Yourself With Better Alternatives - Here Is How!

Biohack Yourself With Better Alternatives - Here Is How!

Were you looking for ways to biohack your physical, psychological and spiritual areas? Here is all that you were looking for.

Biohacking is not a rocket science but a do-it-yourself phenomenon which refers to bringing in lifestyle changes on your own. All your conscious actions that make your life healthy and happy.

In this article, the focus is to help you bring some changes in mental, physical and spiritual areas. Of course, you need not do all of them in one go. Take it slow and see what helps you and what modifications you need based on your preference. So let’s go one by one from one area to another:

Physical Area

  • Exercise: Begin your day with exercise. Now that we have a wide range such as aerobics, zumba, yoga, gym, pilates. You may choose the one that interests you the most because if you don’t like it, you procrastinate it all the time. So, go for trials, read, ask your friends, and figure out a way you would like to take it up. It doesn’t have to be at the beginning of your day but anytime you find yourself rocking on the chair for way too long, just stand up and move yourself a little bit. Movement not only keeps you away from feeling tired or lethargic but keeps your brain active.

  • Play frequently: Go back to reminiscing the good old times, when you would wait for Sundays to go to the park and play. How happy it would make you feel and made you spontaneous.

Pre-Marital Counselling - 6 Reasons Why You Must Go For It!

Marriage is a life-long commitment. Premarital Counseling is a therapy that serves to help couples prepare for their wedlock. It aids in ensuring that you and your partner forge a healthy and a strong relationship in the long run making way for a successful, happy and a satisfying marriage. It also helps you in spotting out the weaknesses early that can later magnify into troubles muddling up your conjugal life. The sessions are usually conducted by licensed and qualified therapists when a couple is considering marriage or are about to get into marriage.

Why is pre-marital counseling at all necessary?

  1. Matching all Aspects: Through this sort of counseling, couples are motivated to initiate conversation pertaining to marriage such as anger management, devoting time for each other, decision-making, family relationships, parenting and children, sex and affection, marital roles, ethics and beliefs, communication and finances.

  2. Communication and Conflict Resolution: Pre-marital Counseling helps partners in improving their ability to communicate with each other, setting sensible marriage goals, as well as skillfully resolving conflicts. In addition to these, premarital counseling also seeks to create a positive attitude for your conjugal life.

  3. Acclimatizing: Remember that you carry your own history, opinions, and values in a relationship and they might vary with your partner who has had an entirely different life with their own and unique experiences. Adjusting to each other as different human beings can be quite a task in itself. Marriage counseling helps in acclimatizing, accepting to the bad and good parts of both the partners.

  4. Becoming a support for each other: Most people rush into marriage to gratify their financial, social, emotional, and sexual needs, but such a mind set is always a gamble. You may hit it off greatly with you partner and then have troubles later on. Clearing out your expectations and bridging the differences prior to marriage would enhance your understanding of each other. This way you can become a source of great support for each other.

  5. Break the pattern: Both or one of you might belong to a divorced or a dysfunctional family where manipulation and fighting was the norm. Premarital Counseling can actually help you to come out of your fear and make peace with your past so that the mistakes of your parents aren’t repeated in your life.

  6. Averting divorce: Owing to the modern lifestyle, the chances of divorce are rising with each passing day. Therefore, early intervention is indeed the need of the hour. Premarital counseling can help you pinpoint areas of major concern and work to resolve them or work around them to avoid issues which may balloon and end up in a worst case scenario for a marriage, which is divorce.

Ways To Get Energy Back Post Illness!

Illness can be sometimes life-changing. May it be a family member or yourself, as it has made an impact and affected your existence. There are possibilities that one had imagined himself/herself in a professional role or going on an adventure trip which remained unaccomplished. And most often you are likely to feel a lack in the different areas of your life, may it be professional, self, relationships or any other areas. So why this happens?

This is based on your psychological and biological functioning. Psychological in terms of thoughts, behaviors, emotions and biological in terms of hormones, genetic composition. When both your mind and body are in the state of prolonged state due to the illness, there is a possibility that some of us tend to close ourselves. It may be not going for reunion, leaving a job, dreaming about future or anything. Some individuals, on the other hand, begin to explore new avenues in their lives. Staying in such prolonged states makes you more likely to under-determine your potentials and will-power to look at your life in a positive way. So, how does one shift to positive alternatives?

Reframing is a process of changing how you look at something such as thought, behaviour or any experience with a positive alternative. Reframing can be done by reviewing the areas of your life and identifying the disruptive thoughts and replacing it with a positive alternative. For instance - positively reframing a negative thought about oneself  “I am unlovable.” to “I am lovable.” which is more nurturing instead of criticizing. As you reframe your perceptions and responses, you begin to change your outlook towards a more positive direction. Shifting to positive reframing not only helps you with changing your outlook but also helps you to reconstruct/ rebuild yourself again. You might have come across life stories/ experiences of individuals about undergoing a chronic illness they have either overcome or managing Furthermore, building their motivations from there. So how can one reframe one’s own life goals and build positive outcomes?

Ask yourself- Some empowering questions

It is overwhelming to look at your schedule or to do lists packed with things that give us stress and boredom. Move beyond it, and begin to think about the things are empowering you, such as how do you see ourselves three years from now, how does your bucket list look like. Begin to look beyond the small stressors that are limiting you from looking at the bigger picture, invest your thoughts and energy on it in a growth perspective.

Shifting mindset: As mentioned previously reframe every single thought or action in your day. Move towards a positive frame of mind and being. Eliminate - not, but, if and bring in the possibilities of growing in the direction you wish to be. Move towards positive coping.

Appreciating and accepting: The part that you have come all this way is an achievement in itself. So, appreciate yourself for every milestone you achieved on this long journey. Every time you go back to negative thoughts and feelings about yourself, replace them with some positive ones. It may be the way you look, the way you talk, the way your dress or anything because you are who you are.

Some affirmations and exercise: Get into a daily habit of writing some positive affirmations to rewire our brain to raise feel-good hormones and push the brain to form some new clusters of positive thoughts. Also, just giving yourself an hour of exercising can not only help in better functioning of your body but your mind as well. You can choose from a wide range nowadays such as yoga, meditation, pilates, zumba, gymming, cycling or just dancing maybe.

Believe in yourself: Understand that recovery is in the process and you have come all this way. Look into the mirror and just say- I believe in myself. It may sound funny but have you ever told this to ourselves before anyone else told us. It takes nothing but you to do that for yourself, just be willing and hold on to yourself.

And remember...

Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. -Victor Frankl

5 Myths About Depression Debunked!

Depression is a mental health disorder where one experiences lack of interest in activities and has a continuously depressed mood which can lead to serious impairments in that person’s daily life.

Day by day, the number of patients suffering from depression is increasing. More than the facts, it is various myths people hear that makes them more vulnerable when suffering from this mental health disorder. Below are the 5 common myths and facts regarding depression.

Myth #1: Lazy people suffer from depression
People who have a lethargic life suffer from depression and hardworking people never experience it. This is probably one of the most widely believed myths about depression. However, in reality, it is excessive work pressure and overworking and the feeling that they are bound with responsibilities and are being exploited at the workplace that causes depression. Anyone can develop this mental condition, and workload and lifestyle do not always have something to do with depression.

Myth #2: Women are the main victims of depression
Another popular myth regarding depression is that it is women who mainly suffer from it. Yes, it is true that women are more sensitive than men, but developing depression has nothing to do with gender. Anyone, at any age, at any time, can suffer from depression.

Myth #3: Talking can never help in easing depression
There are some people who believe that depression is a mental health disorder, is only treated with psychiatric medicines that can help in dealing with this condition. However, what they don't understand is that doing something constructive and having positive conversations with their loved ones can actually benefit their mental health. Even, psychiatrists believe that talking sessions are one of the ways of treating depression.

Myth #4: Depression is the same as sadness
Consistently unhappy and sad people are often considered as being depressed. However, the fact is that both sadness and depression are two different things. While one can get over the former condition of feeling low and sad; suffering from depression leads to chemical changes inside the brain, causing changes in the behaviour, thinking, etc. of the affected person, thereby persistently damaging the daily life.

Myth #5: There’s no link between depression and Physical exercise
Many people assume that physical exercise isn't helpful in dealing with depression since it is a mental illness and not a physical condition. However, the fact is that moderate amount of physical exercise not only helps in improving mental aspects but also boosts the concentration power of the person.

No matter how mild or serious the form of depression one suffers from, opting for psychiatric help becomes crucial to avoid risks of deterioration of the condition in any way. After all, a professional psychiatrist can not only help one suffering from depression by treating them with necessary medications and therapies but also help in differentiating the facts from the myths thoroughly.
