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. 18. Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19. Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20. Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive

Hello Sir/Ma'am, I started my college life staying at my relatives, where I didn't want to be. It was an influenced decision, I took it on someone else word. I did not like the environment, the people, the college which led to me being isolated. I had dengue a few months later, since then my hair condition has gone worse. Following up my stay in a place where I was not happy and socially functional, I started feeling negative and thinking way more. Tell me one thing, Does Masturbation or Porn viewing (in a normal range) bad for my hair health, or physical, or mental health? Or is it the dengue that caused it or the social isolation due to homesickness? Or the stress of staying unhappy with a wrong decision? What causes what? Thank you. please help.

Hello Sir/Ma'am,

There could be few things which might be leading to hair fall and other such hair related issues. Masturbation or porn viewing has nothing to do with it. As you are in a new place, change in water might be one reason, hard water at times can cause issue. If your eating habits are changed and you are eating more junk and oiled food, that could be a problem. And of course stress and feeling low and negative also have its own effect on your body and your mind. Moving away from home is stressful for many students. If this is the first time than it takes a toll on you. I would suggest to take it easy and give it a chance. If you have a counselor in your college go and talk on a weekly basis. That will help you to come up with different strategies to cope up with your stress. Otherwise, try few things mentioned below and you should see positive result in 2 to 4 weeks. Our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Dear Nagarjun. Welcome to lybrate. If your concentration is less towards your studies, you should address your interest level and positive attitude level. Your concentration level will be higher when you are passionate and interested in your studies. Also search Google for "effective learning methods" and use some of those methods. Consult a psychologist online for counselling. Take care.

Sex is a physical need of any normal adult person. You are very young and are likely to have a strong urge. What makes you think that you will have to kill this urge? if your wife is not comfortable with having sex with you or if you or she has any inhibitions towards sex, please consult a counsellor or a sexologist. Killing this urge may not be helpful for you in the long run. It will rather prove to be harmful. Instead try to understand how you both can enjoy healthy sex life and thereby strenghen your marital bond.

Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building.

Dear Ranjith , at your age we are all generally sensitive and find it difficult to take jokes. But we need to understand a couple of things - we feel bad only either we know that what our friends are saying is right - and we have been trying hard to hide our shortcomings , which our friend has pointed out- in such a case work on your shortcoming and thank your friend to be a true one. But many times our friends are trying to have a good time at our expense, question yourself - Do I real need such friends? Secondly, are they some authority in certifying others? The more you react to such jokes , the more fun they derive from teasing you, so start ignoring or begin to be part of it - once you stop reacting , their enjoyment would be over & then they will stop teasing. If the jokes are to do with your height or weight - raise your height by achieving something extraordinary - so that they look up to you, reduce your weight to look fit and agile.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi, ocd is frequently difficult to treat. It frequently requires augmentation and use of high doses. Behaviour therapy is a good mode of treatment to be used alongside medicines. Fluvoxamine could be augmented with memantine or low dose risperidone or clomipramine if the body tolerates. Take care. Consult privately for more help.

I am suffering from severe tinnitus. I know there is no cure for tinnitus, but is there any therapy which can help me to get reduce its effect so that I can concentrate on my studies.

DORL, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Tinnitus and vertigo is very common these days in any age group due to excess of noise exposure and damage to inner ear, humming sound, whistling and giddiness are the problems which are getting in people are very common these days, these get complicated when they are not taken care of at proper time whistling or buzzing in the ear is getting commoner these days in people of all ages. Most common causes is wax or any object in the ear, after getting your ears clean these gets over. But if ears are already clean than this is worrisome. Common causes which are responsible are high cholesterol diet, alcohol, smoking, loud noises, cervical spondylosis, trauma (self or inflicted) over the ears. If this is the situation than report to your ent doctor immediately tinnitus is basically due to hampered blood supply to ears due to which ears start dying. As this process starts a person starts hearing noises. When a person starts hearing noises then it is already late diagnosis as these noises gets heard by someone when they are of 40 db intensity, below that threshold these noises are not heard. So it is already to late and the damage has become permanent. Problem with these noises are that we can control at what level person goes to his specialist otherwise these noises keep on increasing and can give you headache frustration and depression. Get ct scan also done.

Before doing so please drink 2 glasses of water, wrap a wet towel on your head and ensure that your face and head are not exposed to sun. Take a lukewarm water bath immediately after the sun bath.

My in laws are always shouting and fighting. Shouting on my kids. I get depressed and angry. Please advise.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
If you are planning to stay with your in laws then it' s important to have open communication with them. Find out what is their reasons for fighting and tell them how it affects your children and you. They may or may not be able to understand you. As a parent it' s your responsibility to ensure that your children don' t undergo undue stress. You might want to keep them apart sometimes yet also let them develop their own relationship with each other. Some children have their own filters to filter out unwanted experiences while others get very much impacted. For more details click on private chat if you are interested.
