Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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.

Hi lybrate-user, sit comfortably. Take a long, deep breath and exhale it slowly while saying the word" relax" silently. Close your eyes. Let yourself take ten natural, easy breaths. Count down with each exhale, starting with" ten. This time, while you are breathing comfortably, notice any tensions, perhaps in your jaw or forehead or stomach. Imagine those tensions loosening. When you reach" one, open your eyes again. Do this exercise for panic attack and seek psychotherapy from psychologist.

Dear lybrate-user. Congratulations on your quitting smoking. You did not smoke for two months. That is great. Your body starts the repairing process immediately on quitting smoking. It takes 6 months to one year for your body to repair your lungs fully. In the mean time, t augment the repair process, please drink plenty of fruit juices and liquids, exercise hard, eat nutritional food etc. There will not be any serious illnesses. Body will repair even if there is anything. Take care.

If the workload is causing the stress, learn to manage your work well. Even when you overdo exercise, it can cause stress. You could talk to your supervisor and tell him about the stress and he may suggest some better ways of doing what you are doing. Stress is eventually all about the perception of stress. If you change the outlook, the result will be 350`different. If there is a possibility to delegate some work to someone else, please do so. To feel energized you must eat healthy food involving whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Drink green tea and a lot of buttermilk every day. You may eat an egg every day too: it is a multivitamin and multi-mineral, all built into one. You must exercise regularly, especially the aerobic kind. Get at least 8 hours of good sleep and the more you sleep before midnight the better. Learn some stress management and meditation. You must identify our feelings and make sure you express all of them, appropriately. Maintain good relations, especially at home. Deep breathing exercises help to calm a person, immediately. Do not indulge in drinking and smoking.

I am constantly facing a kind of stress and anxiety. I fear or stress about things before it happens. It has made my life complicated. I can not participate in debates or discussions. I can not express my views because if someone says something I dislike it makes me low and I groan over it. Please help. It has made my life worse and I can not live my life.

Dear Lybrate User, *Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) patients suffer from excessive, unrealistic worry that lasts through six months or more; the issues could be health, money, career problems, or just about anything. Its symptoms could include trembling, muscular aches, insomnia/sleep disorders, abdominal upsets, dizziness, irritability and poor concentration. Fresh fruits, fruit juices, vegetables (raw or cooked or boiled), vegetable juices, sprouts, nuts, dry fruits, honey, milk, ghee, fresh butter, and buttermilk are the best to increase sattva and enrich the mind. Try to cut down, or if possible stop, the use of black tea, coffee, white flour products, chocolates, white sugar products, deep fried foods, hot spices, meat, fish, and eggs. Such restrictions benefit in anxiety disorders. *Breathing exercises:

YOu can get married after therapy is complete and I can give you stress relieving tips .Physical symptoms of stress include: • Low energy. • Headaches. • Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea. • Aches, pains, and tense muscles. • Chest pain and rapid heartbeat. • Insomnia. • Frequent colds and infections. • Loss of sexual desire and/or ability. STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14. Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15. Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16. Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17. Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh.

Dear , your question is perfect. You can stop smoking now. Immediately your body starts repairing process in itself. You just have to assist your body providing it enough water, oxygen, exercise and good food and of course, no more smoke. Within 6 months your lungs regain its full capacity. Body removes its toxins within one year. Liver and other organs become normal after 18 months. If there are no cancerous cells in your body, there is nothing to worry about cancer. Don't worry. Stop smoking and be happy and enjoy life. Take care.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Very often, anxiety is triggered by disturbing events in the surroundings. If this death in the neighborhood happened recently and only 2-3 weeks ago, then it is alright. Just give your cousin some time and she will come out of this. But if a much longer time has elapsed, it is probably an anxiety disorder that has been precipitated by the incident. It will need a detailed evaluation by a psychiatrist. There are no short cut solutions in this scenario. But fortunately, these kinds of problems are common and usually do not pose a major problem and are treated easily. Hope that answers the question and helps you. Take care!

Hi, a psychologist is a professional who evaluates and studies behavior and mental processes. Typically, psychologists must have completed a university degree in psychology, which is a master's degree in some countries and a doctorate in others. A psychiatrist is a physician who specializes in psychiatry, which is to say in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors, unlike psychologists, and must evaluate patients to determine whether their symptoms are the result of a physical illness, a combination of physical and mental, or a strictly psychiatric one. As part of the clinical assessment process they may employ a mental status examination, a physical examination, brain imaging such as computerized tomography (ct/cat scan), magnetic resonance imaging (mri), and positron emission tomography (pet) scanning, and blood testing. Psychiatrists prescribe medicine, and may also use psychotherapy.

Muscle aches often respond well to home treatment. Some measures you can take to ease any muscle discomfort from injuries and overuse include: resting the area of the body where you are experiencing aches and pains taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen applying ice to the affected area to help relieve pain and ease inflammation.

Dear Sir/ Madam, I am 28 years old preparing for civil services. I was the most confident guy before my breakup which happened in April 2014. She moved on with someone else and asked me to stay friends. I rejected the idea. I didnt contacted her after that. But I went through a strange emotional storm inside. I was unable to study, I was unable to do anything. The only thing on mind was her. I cried a lot during this period. It affected my grades. First time in last 3 yrs I was unable to crack the prelims ( the first stage of exam) because I had only one thing on my mind. There was period of confusion. My focus affected. Then in last September, I bumped into her and her new boyfriend. I acted cool. I shook hands with both. Chatted a bit and left. I was confident. But after I came home, the depressed feelings relapsed. I kept crying. Same period of confusion again engulfed. Days were dark, mainly spent in sleeping. I lost around 10 kg of weight. Unable to control emotions. Worst form of Anxiety, Panic attacks. Even went through post traumatic Stress disorder. But I didnt contact her. Somehow, pick myself up around November. But still not completely. But she sent me text which was supposed to be for her new boyfriend by mistake. It again caused Anxiety. But I somehow managed to control it. Now In March 2015. I am in control of myself and my emotions. Sometimes there is still nostalgia and some remaining feelings. It doesnt affect much now. I dont cry. But now I am not the same. Its difficult to focus back on studies, which I am trying to regain. Slowly, rebuilding my confidence, but I am not that confident as I was. This years exam is coming, I want to start studying just like the way I used to. I dont want the thoughts to put me down again. I want to live healthy - emotionally and physically. Yes gym and running helped me lot last year. What should I do and what should I avoid to keep my focus on studies and forget about past? Also I am afraid of going back into those state of dark days, So how should I avoid that? I have also became a procrastinator, which I never was. I have got myself back, but still feel something is still missing in life, sometimes feels lonely! I request you to help me to get out of it. To get over her completely.

It's not easy to overcome a broken romantic relationship but it's not impossible also. You seem to have a strong fight back spirit and you can use it to your benefit every time life throws something unpalatable at you. It may not be possible to forget the past completely but how you look and remember it is in your hands. Remember the good and bad things about her and the relationship. Give yourself time to heal. Don't judge yourself because nobody is perfect. Regarding your exams, I do notice that you are a serious student with some dreams. If you are not able to achieve those dreams due to any reason for which you are the cause.Then you know who to hold responsible. If you want your dreams and aspirations to come true then you have to work towards it. Set yourself a bigger goal like 80% in exams. Split it into daily/ weekly/monthly achievable goals and start working daily. Remove or reduce any activity which will hinder your progress towards your goals. Add activities which will help you. Put up your goal ona piece of paper somewhere in your room where you can see it everyday and let it sink into your psyche. For this month let your sole aim be to crack the exams. Other problems can wait and be tackled later. Relaxing is important as studies. Do whtever helps you to relax. Eating on time, hydrating yourself, exercising, sleeping well will all help you to remain focussed and full concentration on your work. Remember that Arjun had only the fish's eye in his vision. He had cut off everything else in that moment. Regarding those dark days and feeling.The more you reject them, they will follow you around. Just accept them and don't fight them. They will vanish like magic. Inner Child Meditations will help you address this issue and soothe and calm the mind. All the best.

Alcohol per se has no nutrition value. Why do you want to consume alcohol, as there is a potential danger of accumulation of unused fat and excessive calories. /This may increase possibilities of future problems. Although alcohol helps reducing the blood clotting, it is advisable you can only try very low dose of Red wine, <30ml. But costlier to other and an tendency for increasing the dose and cost involvement and addiction related disorder later. I would advise stay away from alcohol. Instead if you have problem in clotting check it and try natural blood thinners.
