How to Manage Your Stress

Stress Management

Stress is a phenomenon which makes us fight the acutely dangerous situations.

The FIGHT or FLIGHT esponse

Is stress really bad?
How and why you get stress.
Dealing with distress.
Becoming a winner

Stress is a psychological and physiological response to events that upset our personal balance in some way.

These events or demands are known as stressors. Stressors are present everywhere all the time.

Stress is a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize

The stress response

The short-term 'Fight or flight' response - basic survival instinct.

The long-term 'General Adaptation Syndrome' - a long-term effect of exposure to stress.

A third mechanism comes from

'The way we think and interpret the situations in which we find ourselves.'

Work Place Stress

Environmental stressors

Change of place
Team interactions
Goals and targets
Time constraints
Definition of job profile
Traveling to and fro from the workplace
Long irregular hours of work
Competition
Lack of job satisfaction
Less time with family and friends
High Performance Demand
Social Status

Common symptoms

Headache
Sleep disturbance
Upset stomach
Difficulty concentrating
Irritability
Low morale
Poor relations with family and friends

Stress plays an important role in several types of ongoing health problems

Cardiovascular disease
Musculoskeletal conditions
Psychological disorders
Obesity
Hormonal Imbalance
Cancers
Substance  Abuse

Stress Management

The effective goal of stress management is the effective use of energy by:

Learning to recognize the symptoms of stress
Learning skills to control these symptoms
Practicing and using these skills
Find Ways to Dispel Stress

If you feel stress building, take a break. Walk away from the situation. Take a stroll around the block, sit on a park bench, or spend a few minutes meditating. Exercise does wonders for the psyche by releasing endorphins, the 'feel good hormones' But even just finding a quiet place and listening to your iPod can reduce stress.

Cultivate allies at work. Just knowing you have one or more co-workers who are willing to assist you in times of stress will reduce your stress level. Just remember to reciprocate and help them when they are in need

Management of Self

Shying away from Stressors is not going to solve your problem.

1.Have realistic expectations
2.Reframe problems
3.Accept. Don't live in Denial
4.Excessive involvement. Don't try to control events or other people

1.Maintain your sense of humor
2.Express your feelings instead of bottling them up
3.Whatever may be the stage of life, remember change is inevitable, circumstances as well as roles in life.
4.Remain adaptable and open to change.

Avoid comparison. The grass is always greener on the other side

When it comes to mind and matter

If you don't mind, it doesn't matter!

I smoke 3-4 cigarettes a day. And I wish to stop. What steps should I take to free from myself this habit? And I tried to quit smoking several times but I couldn't.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

8 Stress-Related Health Problems: Know The Signs

Today, everyone seems to have an increased amount of stress, whether it is due to the economy, their job, layoff or family relationships and other constraints. Many medical and physical complaints that we have can in some way or another be due to or can be worsened by stress.

Here are eight of the most common stress-induced conditions and the evidence behind them.
1. Depression and anxiety/panic disorders. This is pretty easy to understand. The more stress a person has, the worse underlying mental health disorders can become. The stress of loss of a loved one, loss of a job or threat of losing your job, or a strained relationship can lead to overwhelming sadness or symptoms of panic. Insomnia and sleep disturbances can occur as racing thoughts and increased worry at night. Alcohol and tobacco abuse can also occur concurrently as ways to self-medicate in the absence of correct ways of treatment such as prayer, counseling, therapy or prescribed medication.

2. Hypertension and heart disease. Otherwise known as high blood pressure, stress can cause an increase in constriction of blood vessels. Stress has not been proven as a direct cause of high blood pressure, but it can have an overall effect on the release of hormones from the nervous system and circulatory systems, which makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to our vital organs. If blood pressure is chronically high and blood vessels have enough damage or cholesterol buildup, heart disease can be the result. Some chest pain can even be linked to stress.

3. GERD (acid reflux) and stomach ulcers. Emotional stress can lead to an increased production of acid from proton pumps and H2 receptors in our stomachs. If acidity is prominent, a burning sensation can be felt and pain can extend from the stomach (in the center and to the left of the middle of the stomach) all the way up to the esophagus and throat. Foods that we eat, including caffeinated beverages, spicy ingredients and citrus can make this worse. If left for too long, ulcers, or an eating away of the lining of the stomach, can develop and even worsen to the point of bleeding.

4. Obesity. Stress can cause an increase of the hormone cortisol to be released from the adrenal glands. Cortisol is linked to increased glucose (blood sugar) and weight gain. Also, while some of us eat less with stress, many of us eat more ?comfort foods,? which are generally more sweet and fatty, and have more calories.

5. Headaches. Migraines are thought to be the most common type of headache, but tension is probably higher on the list of causes of headache. Both types can increase with stress. With tension headaches, a tense pressure or squeeze can be felt in any part of the head, usually with muscle tension and soreness of the neck and even shoulders. Migraines are thought to be associated with signals from the nervous system that relax blood vessels. When vessels relax, blood rushes to them and cause dilation. If too dilated, this can cause pain.

6. Abnormal menstrual cycles. Skipping a period can be very distressing for a woman, especially if unexplained. Although we don?t know what the certain cause is, it is thought that emotional stress affects release of certain pituitary hormones that can cause irregular periods. If weight is lost or gained due to stress, estrogen or a lack thereof, it can also cause irregular periods.

7. Viral infections. When we're stressed or fatigued, our immune system doesn?t work as well to prevent us from infection. We all have antibodies from vaccines or from previous infections that have built up in memory cells and are programmed to increase when we are exposed to infections. Stress reduces this response. Colds can occur more frequently and, even worse, viruses such as herpes and HPV (human papilloma virus can show themselves during these ?down? times.

8. Cancers. This one is controversial, as some studies say one thing and some say another. The conflicting data questions whether stress can be a direct cause of some cancers. In 2002, a study was done on patients who had breast cancer that was treated. The question was asked if stress could be linked to the cancer coming back. The study could not prove it to be true. However, in animal studies, an increase of stress hormones was linked directly to growth of some tumors. Long story short, the evidence is inconsistent, but there may be truth to the claim that stress can lead to certain cancers.
All in all, be self-aware of the signs. If you?re feeling overwhelmed, as we all at some point do, be proactive by exercising, drinking plenty of water, getting good restful sleep and doing those things that you enjoy doing with those you love. If it still feels like life is crashing down on you or your body is breaking down, please ask me privately here.

Many people in my village are used to smoking with grass and smoking pipe. It is very serious problem for whole village. What should we try to avoid this! How can we make them leave smoking and the habit of smoking grass?

Dear lybrate-user. You can make village action committee taking help from other like minded village people. Take help of women and other youngsters. Try to convince the smoking people. Definitely it will be not that easy and could take much time. But slowly and steadily, you will see the change. You can take help from the store people and request not to sell smoking ingredients etc. One step at a time, leads to success. Take care.

Dear , memory is very tricky thing. You are actually talking about recollection here. You will not be able to recollect if you are anxious, busy, stressed, tired etc. We also find it difficult to recollect many things which we never memorized. There is nothing wrong in that. Still, if you feel you have memory problems, we will do a series of tests to ascertain your memory. Initially I will assess you through telephone interview. Please let me know if you are ready for telephone assessment. Take care.

Hi I am 35 years old woman having stress because of my boyfriend always worried of my past relationships with other guys. Please advice

It means that he is possessively in love with you at the same time he wants you to know more about your past life, which is not a healthy one. I suggest you to have an open communication with him about your past life after receiving an agreement or promise from him that he would never talk or think about it in future and accept you as you are. Otherwise, it will act as a thorn between your relationship causing pain to both of you.

I and my husband are very much depressed due to family problems. I cant see my husband in that condition. What should I do?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
From my side. I will suggest you to do yoga and meditation daily. It will help you to feel relief for some stressful situations and energize you. And if that also does not work. Then consult a good skilled homoeopath for it. Because mentally disturbed patients are best treated with homoeopathic medications.

You have probably been affected and maybe continue to be affected by a spurt in the growth hormone and the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to the effect of these two hormones you are likely to feel tired and exhausted and this will lead to drowsiness. It will stabilize in a coup0le of years depending on when these symptoms started. In the meantime, you could do a lot of exercise and tone up and shape up your body in desirable directions.

I love someone. But I can't be with her. I know it would be so common for you people out there. But it's not that easy. My story is too complicated. But the moral is I can't be with her. I am going mad day by day. I can't focus on work. I keep playing mobile games, chatting with other girls. But nothing is helping me. Please do something!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Whether your story is complicated or we do not understand, one thing is clear, if you want someone so badly then they must also want you equally badly. You cannot be in a relationship that is one-sided. You must also learn to accept that if something is not possible for good reason, then it is not. I suppose you are looking at a permanent relationship, for which reason it is even more mandatory that there is reciprocal love and desire for each other. My advice to you then, is to get her out of your system and find another more reasonable and loving girl that wants you as much as you want her, and stop wasting your time and life on a losing cause. In this context, meeting with a counselor will certainly help.

Dear lybrate-user, In some patients, we need to try many medications. If medications fails then there are brain stimulatory modalities like MECT, RTMS etc which can help patients. Since you have written here about your problem, this shows that you can get improvement on medication. Try to reduce your sleep duration by one hour, do exercise, involve in some games of your choice. All d best!

If you have lost someone close to your heart, then you are in lot of pain. It is natural, to think about that person and the memories will keep flooding your mind. Give yourself more time to accept the loss. Now that the person has gone away you need to live your life without that person. This reality itself might be hard for you to accept. Please share/express your feelings about that person, with other people in your life, who can support you emotionally. Try to think about all the good times you shared with this person. Don't try to avoid/block your memories, it will not help. Let yourself go through the pain of losing that person. If you feel like crying, please do cry. Give proper outlet to your emotions. If you are angry, sad, frustrated, guilty talk about it. After relieving yourself of these emotions you will feel lighter. Slowly, you will learn to invest again in your life and move on. All the best and take care.
