Hello Lybrate user, lossing close one is indeed a devastating event. Emotional shock like intense grief often impact negative effect on mental and physical health. Like depressed feeling, overeating or reduce appetite etc.; mindfulness meditation for 10 minutes and pranayam like anulom vilom for 5 minutes will be helpful to reduce stress and emotional pain. If nothing helps. Then take homeopathic treatment. It's safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. Natural homeopathic medicines with zero side effects, like natrum, ign, etc; are highly effective in removal of bad effects of emotional shock, grief. Message back for proper counseling and consultation. Take care.

Hello sir I drink wine daily n I want to leave my bad habit so how can I do it. What to do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi lybrate-user, A key step in the best method to quit alcohol is to let people around you know about your intentions. This will help reduce the surprise they feel when they see you are not drinking. In turn, it will lessen their comments of surprise, which could catch you off guard and make you want to drink. Telling those around you about your plans to quit will also help give you a support network. If your friends and family know you are not drinking anymore, they will not offer you a glass. Even better, they will give you the encouragement you need to turn down a glass of wine at a restaurant or gathering. When you let people know your plans for staying sober, it also increases your accountability. Most people will try harder to succeed in a goal if others know about it. You will not want to be embarrassed by failure and will also avoid the feeling of letting down the people you love. 2) Another important aspect that you will learn about when in pursuit of how to give up drinking wine is to choose your companions carefully. If you have friends that have a glass or two of wine with every meal, you should definitely avoid dining with them at least for some time. Some of your acquaintances are responsible for the quantity of wine you drink by doing things like saying you should have “just one more glass of wine.” These are the friends you should avoid spending time with for the moment because they will make your road to recovery harder. In the beginning, giving up wine can be incredibly difficult and if you are around people who are not supportive, it will be even harder. Instead, choose to spend time with people who do not drink or those who you trust not to drink around you. Look for friends or family members that have fun without alcohol. 3) Just because you want to know how to stop drinking wine on your own doesn’t mean you can’t use the tools around you for help. The vitamin B1 is a supplement that is a useful tool because it can make it much easier to abstain from alcohol. Thiamine is important for metabolism of sugar and a deficiency in B1 is associated with alcoholism. It is critical to the functioning of certain biochemical processes specifically in the brain. When you are deficient in this critical vitamin, you will have a much more difficult time controlling cravings. You can find this vitamin in beans, meat such as pork, rice, nuts, peas, soybeans and bran. If you do not want to adjust your diet to encompass consuming more vitamin B1 then you can simply get more from over the counter vitamins in your system to help combat your cravings. 4) Another high quality natural method to quit alcohol is Turmeric. This natural herb is excellent for detoxing the liver. It is beneficial in reducing inflammation, as well as regenerating the cells of the liver. It will also help to promote the production of bile, which cleans the liver and rids it of toxins. It is important to get this herb from an herbal supplier and not from the seasoning section of your grocery store. You will have a better level of nutrients when you purchase from a supplier over the grocery store. This herb is f in the ginger family and is in Indian dishes. When you begin, your journey to quit drinking you will find that you are going to need all the resources you have. You are also going to need to detoxify your body, especially the liver because it has been dealing with so many toxins. Quality herbal supplements are the ideal way to detoxify. Talk to doctor in case of withdrawal symptoms. Rome wasn't built in a day. You're probably not going to kick your habit in a week, either. That's perfectly okay. Small victories beget bigger ones. In the beginning, simply try to reduce the amount of alcohol you consume. Going straight from a heavy drinker to cold turkey is a recipe for physical and emotional disaster. Imagine that due to excess alcohol, you are vomiting and having paralyzing headaches. If you've felt this way before while drinking, try to summon those memories. The pain you feel is good: it's a willingness to change your habits, and that's the first step. Even if you only reduce your daily drinking by one drink, it's a success. No step is too small at this point. A mistake here is getting comfortable only curbing your drinking by one drink. Keep working on reducing the alcohol you consume. Every week, cut down the total number of drinks by at least one. If you want to be more ambitious, try halving the number of drinks you allow yourself each week. Do meditation regularly especially in the morning. At the end of the session, vow not to drink alcohol. Remember your calm mind of meditation later when you feel like drinking. It will distract you. Pick up yoga! It will help you deal with stress and calm your mind. Best of all, yoga can be done in a group setting where you can feed off of the energy of other people. Embrace that positive energy. All the very best.

How to deal with Exam Stress?

General Physician, Delhi
How to deal with Exam Stress?

Exam stress affects most students in varying ways. It is important to manage this stress and find little ways of helping to eliminate the risk of burnout.
 

For some students, exams can be a breeze; revision is second nature to them and they could ace an exam with their eyes closed. But for others, sweaty palms and heart palpitations are just a part of the territory, and it seems that nothing is more impossible than sitting down and revising. Here are some handy tips that can help to dissipate stress and make sure you can get through exam season.
 

1. Take regular breaks and schedule in fun things to look forward to

Even the most intense exam timetables will allow a little time for a study break. This can include 20-minute breaks during your revision day, and longer activities that you can look forward to. Go out for dinner with friends, go to the cinema, attend a gig, anything that you like doing in your spare time that will take your mind off exams. Spending a little time away from the books will leave you feeling more refreshed and relaxed the next time you revise.

 

2. Exercise and get outdoors

Easily one of the most frustrating things about exam season is that it seems to occur just as the weather brightens up. Use this to your advantage and go out for a walk, or a run, or head to the gym or swimming pool. As well as keeping you healthy, exercise is known to boost your mood and can help to make you more productive while revising.
 

3. Don’t (always) listen to others

As the old saying goes: "comparison is the thief of joy". While it is helpful to discuss topics with fellow students and often to revise together, try not to compare other peoples' revision to your own. Chances are you’re doing just fine, and listening to other people talk about what they’ve learnt will only stress you out and may make you feel like you aren't progressing as well as them. Plus, if they themselves are stressed this can rub off on to you and other people’s stress is not what you need right now.

 

4. Speak to someone

If the stress gets to a point where it is overwhelming, and is affecting your day-to-day life, try and speak to someone about it. Your university or school should have a service where you can speak to people about your concerns, and will be able to offer more advice on how to manage it. If that seems like too big a step, open up to a family member or a friend about the pressure you feel. You’ll be amazed to know that you aren’t alone in feeling like this.
 

10 quick ways to help eliminate exam stress

  1. Watch a film, a TV show or listen to a podcast or comedian that makes you laugh.
  2. Drink some herbal tea or a hot chocolate. It’s a well known fact that hot drinks are known to soothe the soul (avoid too much caffeine though!).
  3. A shower or a bath can help to relieve stress.
  4. Cook or bake something. Just the thought of having something delicious to eat can bring you joy. As a bonus side note, try and cook something healthy too. You can’t feed your mind well, if you don’t feed your body well.
  5. Get some sleep. The virtues of a good night’s sleep during exam season should not be underestimated.
  6. Keep things in perspective. Yes, exams are important. But you are so much more than your exam results.
  7. Avoid other stressed people. You know the ones I mean. The ones with cue cards outside of the exam hall, frantically trying to remember key dates and equations. They will do nothing for your stress levels.
  8. Avoid the exam "post-mortem”. You don’t need to know how other people fared in the exam. You’ve done your best, you can’t go back and change your answers so the second you step out of the exam hall, focus on your next exam.
  9. Be flexible. While having a revision time table is one of the best tools in your arsenal for exam success, don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t stick to it. If you accidentally oversleep, don’t write the day off.
  10. Write down everything you feel like you need to do and try and tick one thing off. Just the act of feeling like you are in control of your revision can help.

It is curable be medication and counselling. 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.
