Anxiety - 10 Facts About It!

Anxiety - 10 Facts About It!

Anxiety is a common issue with growing teenagers. It is not the typical anxiety before exams or academic projects. It is more than that. Anxiety may be the result of the hormonal changes, which predominantly affect the adolescent years of growth. While your body copes with different changes, your mind tangles between the future liberty and present restrictions. Knowing certain facts about this anxiety trail can help you to cope with it.

1. Anxiety is not always a disease: Anxiety is not always a disease. It is a normal phenomenon among adolescent teenagers. However, in certain cases it may be severe for some teenagers. They may feel crippled with anxiety. Under such cases, one would require psychiatric help.

2. Talk to someone: A great way to relieve yourself from stress due to anxiety is to speak with someone. It can be a friend or someone close to share your thoughts. If you know the reason of your anxiety, share it, discuss it. You will definitely feel better.

3. Take a break: Entertainment and break from academic work and schedule is necessary for teenagers to lower anxiety traits. However, if the anxiety is due to peers, you may even take a break from them and engage in family.

4. Cry out loud: It is not a silly thing to cry when you are stressed under anxiety. Crying is an emotional outburst which essentially relieves the stress due to anxiety and lets you control the emotional disturbed state of mind.

5. Good sleep: Sleep is necessary for both mental and physical rest. You need to overcome from the fatigue of routine works, stressful events, peer factor, etc. Catching the essential 8 hour sleep is a great way to overcome anxiety issues.

6. Don’t be conscious: Anxiety is a common factor among all your peers. You are not the only one coping with anxiety stress. So, take it light. Relax and don’t be conscious about your anxiety problems. Consider them to be temporary.

7. Be confident: Losing confidence under the stress due to anxiety can be even more disastrous. The effects will never be better. So be confident about whatever you do, whether right or wrong. Every person learns from his own activities. Whether right or wrong, everything will give you a lesson. So you will never be a loser, you will win a lesson.

8. Don’t feel stupid: Being stressed with anxiety is not abnormal or stupid. Everything is okay with you, and you are not the stupid fellow out there.

9. You are not weak: Anxiety is not a sign of weakness. You can rather make it your strength. Fight it back and keep your energy and enthusiasm high.

10. Anxiety is temporary: As you move ahead of the adolescent period, anxiety will faint. You will be more confident and matured, able to tackle anxiety. So consider it to be an affair of a few years.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I was diagnosed with high bp 150/90 4 years ago and was put on met xl H 25 since then. After evaluating my all reports like ECG, 2decho, CBC, xray,sugar and cholesterol my doc told me you have stress related issues. I told him I remain restlessness and over think a lot like I am not in a present moment.in my mind I am always thinking something and enjoy that imaginary world created by my mind which of course is not true but I am now addicted to useless thinking rabbit of my mind. Something it thinks of past, sometime future, sometime about lust because of this I am not able to concentrate and focus on any task. Soon I realized that even when I am taking to any person I am physically communicating but my mind is thinking something else. I am feeling as if my mind and body not coordinating properly. I went to a psychiatrist 1 year back he put me on paroxetine for 7 months and I recovered from my anxiety/depression but it again came back. Now I don't want to take that medicines to control my monkey mind and want some psychologists advice .I do not want to take psychiatry medicine which will treat the symptoms for some time but instead want some technique to calm this over thinking mind or restlessness mind. Also I am physically OK so I don't know the exact cause of my bp .but one thing I know from my childhood I was like ADHD type of person, who developed anxiety or stress problem latter on. My psychiatry told me you are an anxious person and also depressed. I said how can be an anxious person depressed because I was a kind of person who was always thinking about I should study hard, should get good marks, and should find good job. Also I can a lot of fear deep in my mind. Now I have lack of interest in earning and doing job. please help. If possible give me some suggestion/advice to overcome this negative emotions of mind and also hypertension without medicines as I don't want to be in this vicious cycle of stress, anxiety, depression, worry. please give me some psychologists advice and not a psychiatry medicines as I know medicine will only give me some symptomatic relief & not a permanent cure.

Good evening sir, my name is suresh. My parents are some kind of mental people. Our family is a very respectable and traditional family I want to mingle with all kind of people and I am interested in public relations. L love people and spending time with people. My parents don't understand the situation correctly they don't listen to any body. I am a btech student due to them inferiority was created in me and I could overcome with the help of a doctor. After that one day they said me as psycho from that day onwards even I want to concentrate on studies I cannot. I want to kill my parents. Don't think me as I have some kind of personality disorder.

Dear lybrate user, you said that your family is respectable family and what do you think who made your family respectable in society, of course parents. Parents are the root of the family. They grown up you and made you able to do a such prestigious course like btech. Then why you think like that. I think problem in your case is of understanding only. Talk openly to them about the real problem, you can take help of your other relative whom you and your parents both trust. Actually this is a type of generation gap, where you think on any matter in one way and your parents since they are experienced they think on the same in another way. Your future lies in your studies so concentrate on your studies, then you will find no time to think about all this. Do meditation and yoga daily to relax your self and for better concentration.

Hi, it is purely based on your interest and attitude towards the education. You have to develop the voluntary interest on education. You can make your time table and fix to it regimen. Repeated rehearsal or relearning help to store in long term memory.

People suffering from Alzheimer s do not know or agree that they are suffering. Similar changes can be seen in depression, which is why it called pseudo-dementia. It would be wise for you to consult a psychiatrist, get evaluated and remedy. It would be dramatic and changes can be seen in few weeks. All the best.

Is it true that hot / short tempered people are at high risk of getting and having high blood pressure? Or is it just temporary (at the moment that you are angry)? Can you explain the basis of this? What's the best advice to someone who has short temper. How to curb it? Thanks.

It's not 100% to every people affect the bp with hot or short tempers. Due to anger all the veins and arteirs become vitated by the vata dosha. The vata dosha creates many problems like paralysis, bodyache, stress, strain etc. So try to avoid such situations. Do some dhyana it is best thing to get rid from anger. Pranayam.

Dear lybrate-user, it is not abnormal to have sexual feelings at this age, self masturbation has no side effects, it is good that you wants stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.
