How to control anger?

MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Although the senses require a certain amount of satisfaction, unless regulated they become like wild horses, forcing one to obey their whims.

Craving the objects of their satisfaction, the senses take control of the mind and intelligence, leading to frustration and anger when their impossible demands go unmet.

From this anger, delusion arises, and from delusion, bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, human intelligence is lost, leaving one in a hell of irrational behavior.

As fever is a symptom of some disease in the body, anger is a symptom of ongoing material hankerings.

Just as treating fever alone will not cure the disease, treating anger without understanding it to be a symptom of lust will not extinguish the unwanted behavior.

To conquer anger, we must first ask how we shall conquer lust.

Hello lybrate-user as mentioned above you have puberphonia. Usually as I have observed this long in most puberphonia patients the duration depends on how fast you grasp the proper technique shown by speech therapist. The cost of treatment would vary from therapist to therapist.

It seems that due to study pressure you are in continuous stress. That might make you feel low and not interested. This stress is also affecting perhaps your focus, concentration and motivation for study. This in turn comes out as an exam anxiety. When you are worried before and/or during your exams that makes you forget your answers and blank out. I would strongly advice you to try things I am suggesting below. If you try these stress management techniques on a regular basis you will see positive changes in 2 to 4 weeks time. And then you may use 3 deep breath technique during your exam to stay calm. This will help you with recalling and figuring out the correct answer during exams. 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.

DIET IN DEPRESSION

Neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphin are responsible for regulating moods and behavior. The body is able to produce these neurotransmitters because of certain nutrients like protein, fatty acids and carbohydrates. Since these nutrients come from the food we consume, it is important to pay attention to your diet. Eating the right foods can help to prevent nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances. This, in turn, helps to prevent or reduce mood changes and emotional disturbances, where dietary deficiencies may have been contributing factors. Here are some tips on what to eat to prevent depression:

The importance of eating a healthy breakfast cannot be stressed enough. It helps to maintain your blood sugar levels and thus keeps your moods stable.Oats make a good breakfast food because they help to combat stress and also keep your cholesterol levels in check.

Don’t drastically reduce fat from your diet. Some amount of fat is necessary for proper functioning. Try to ensure an intake of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids which are found in foods such as nuts, fatty fish and seeds.

Add plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet as these will supply your body with a variety of essential vitamins and minerals.
Foods such as lean turkey, chicken and milk are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that stimulates the release of serotonin. Serotonin enhances mood.

Restrict your intake of caffeinated beverages and alcohol. Some studies have indicated a link between excessive coffee consumption and depression. Alcohol affects mood and can also interfere with sleep.

Avoid following restrictive or crash diets that eliminate an entire food group. These can considerably affect your normal body rhythm and may lead to hormonal imbalances.

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 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 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear lybrate-user, Generalized anxiety disorder needs treatment with anxiolytic/antidepressant, relaxation and other therapies apart from healthy food and good sleep. It will not disappear on its own. If you do not take effort to get out of it. You may not need all the above treatments all the time. Sometime only drugs, sometime only therapy, sometime all of them or in combination. The psychologist would not told food and sleep are the only way, she would have told, ONE of the ways. I say this, if you ask for free advise outside the clinic.

It seems like your daughter? s failure is affecting you more than your daughter. You may inadvertently pass on your nervousness to her and make it worse. You must give her hope and therefore you must have more faith and trust in her abilities. You must help her identify what went wrong in her last attempt and correct those errors this time around. Her study methods may be in question. If so, explore better methods even now. If she is of a nervous disposition, she is likely to mess it up again. Help her with some deep breathing and yoga exercises to calm her down. Teach her how to handle her feelings, especially that of fear, and she will do a lot better. Never fault a child for trying and being responsible. Make her and you understand that failure is a stepping-stone to success. Every great man has had his ups and downs but they picked themselves up and did better when down. Even if she has to repeat her class, it is good for her, if she has learned her lessons. Get her tutoring for the weak subjects and whatever other support she needs. A multivitamin and multi-mineral along with a calcium tablet daily will help her to deal with stress well. Get your husband involved too, especially if he is of a calmer disposition. My take on education: if her character is good, then that is all that matters. Acknowledge that about her: that is the best result one should look for.

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.

Hello have you seen any physician for this particular problem, if not I would suggest that first you need to get your check up done by a physician and even if the similar problem persists then you can write again. And secondly, you need to find the reason of getting emotional or anxious first and need to specifically mention the reason here, so that we may work on that reason which is causing anxiety. All the best

My friend is suffering from depression for 2 years. Can you please tell me that how can I help him?
The best thing you can do for him is to encourage him to seek help, and support him during the process. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist as two years is a long time for him to be like this. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely that he will be able to come out of it. Keep a close watch on him; if he begins to voice suicidal ideas or feels hopeless/worthless, take him to the psychiatrist immediately. Other than that, involve his family or friends who care about him to ensure he gets the appropriate treatment. Remain posted and aware of any changes in behavior.

My brother Age is 35 years he is smoking cigarettes from past 10 years. He smoke daily near 8 to 10 cigarettes. How to skip or reduce cigarette daily. In Future how to overcome this problem completely.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Ask him to follow these instructions: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.
