Hi, I am Dr. Kaartik Gupta, a well known Psychologist, in Delhi. Aaj hum addiction ke bare me baat krenge. Addiction bohot hi common problem hai. Iske bare me hum aaj briefly baat krenge. Addiction aap ko alcohol, drugs, nicotine, tobacco ya fir kisi bhi chiz ka ho sakta hai. Is se hamare behavior changes aane lagte hain. Ye ek mental problem hai islia aaj hum iske bare me baat krenge.

Jab patient jayada consume karta hai like alcohol or chorne pe use withdrawal symptoms feel hote hain. Patent ko irritation ho sakti hai, shivering, restlessness, anger ye sab hone lagte hain. Jo ye addiction karta hai us se uski family and friends bhi affect hote hain. Islia addiction family problem hai not individual problem. Nasha pure pariwar pe asar dalta hai. Medicines se is problem ko manage karna asan ho jata hai. Yhan pe homeopathic medicines bhi bohot effective hain. Hum iske causes janne ki koshish karte hain ki patient ne kyu ye addiction start kia. Hum dekhte hain ki patient ka problem se deal karne ka tarika appropriate nahi hai. Vo nashe ka sahara leta hai problem se deal karne ke lia.

Craving control pe kaam kia jata hai. Hum relapse prevention ke bare me focus karte hain. Patient try karta hai addiction ko overcome karne ke lia but successful nhi ho pata hai. Relapse prevention is treatment ek important step hai. Isme hum assertiveness training bhi dete hain. Patient ka No kehne ka ability bhi strong hona chaiye. Iske lia bhi hum patient ko training dete hain jahan vo apne aap ko bacha skta hai. Aaj kal patient me behavioral addiction bhi bohot common ho gya hai. Recent case bhi hum dekh chuke hai jahan patient ko netflix addiction ke lia bhi treatment dia ja chuka hai. Ye ek actual me bimari hai addiction ka hona. Agar apko lgta hai ki apko bhi addiction ho gaya hai to aap humse consult kar skte hain jahan pe hum homeopathic treatment ke sath-sath psychological intervention bhi dete hain. In dono ka combination bhi best rehta hai. Thank You.

Hello Everyone! My name is Dr Kaartik Gupta and I am a clinical psychologist at AKGs Ovihams Medical Center.

Aaj hum anxiety ke baare mein baat karenge. Anxiety bahut hi common and natural phenomena hai. Jo humein kabhi na kabhi kisi na kisi situation mein experience hota hi hai. Anxiety ke apne kuch faayde bhi hain. Jaise hum iske revolution prospect ki baat karen to isne hi ensure kia tha ki sab survive karen. Jab bhi hume kahin na kahin threat mehsus hota hai, hamari jo anxiety ka response hai , vo activate ho jaata hai. Activate hone ka matlb hai ki hamari body is tarike se bani hui hai, ki jab bhi hum arouse hote hain ya jab bhi humein threat mehsus hota hai, hamari body automatically fight-flight-freeze response ke mode mein aa jaati hai. Jiska matlb ye hota hai ki ya to hum us situation mein ladenge, ya to hum us situation se bhaagne ki koshish karenge ya hum bilkul numb ho jaate hain.

Agar hum symptoms ki baat karen anxiety ke ya jo commonly humein mehsus hote hain, uske physical symptoms hote hain , jaise ki hamari heart-beat badh jaati hai, pulse rate badh jati hai, breathing heavy hone lagti hai, kayi logon ko sweating hone lagta hai specially palm mein sweating ho jaata hai, dry mouth hone lagta hai. To ye saare physical symptoms hai anxiety hone ke. Psychological symptoms hote hain ki hum overthink karne lagte hain, hum future ke baare mein darane lagte hain, hum apprehensive hone lagte hain. Ek hi time pe dimaag mein hazaron khayal aate hain, jisko hum racing thoughts bolte hain. Behavioral responses hote hain ki hum restless hone lgte hain.

Kayi log start speaking faster, kayi log fumble karne lagte hain ya even stammer karne lagte hain. Ye behavioral symptoms hain anxiety ke , jo dusron ko bhi mehsus hote hain ya unko dikhne lagte hain. Hum sab anxiety disorder ki baat karte hain , to vo disorder isliye kaha jaata hai ki jab ye anxiety itni zyaada severe ho jaye , ya hum itne zyaada intense ho jaaye or itna frequently mehsus hone lage ki hamari personal, occupational, or social functioning hai, uspe uska impact aane lage. Tab hum anxiety ko ek anxiety disorder kehte hain. Anxiety disorder mein kayi saare sub-types hote hai, jaise generalised anxiety disorder jisko hum GAD kehte hain ya free floating anxiety bolte hain.

Iske symptoms apko lagataar 6 mahine ke liye mehsus hote hain jahan mein aapki body mein stiffness hoti hai, nausea ho sakta hai, restlessness reh sakti hai, palpitaion bhi bahut common hai. Dusra ho sakta hai phobia - jisko hum fear bhi bolte hain. It is fear of a specific situation or an object. Us situation ko hum avoid karne lagte hain, quki humein lagta hai ki ye hamare liye bahut threatening hai or us avoidance ki vajah se hi hamara darr badhne lagta hai.

Ek or disorder hai - panic disorder. Jisme vyakti ko panic disorder hote hain, palpitations hote hain , reathing bahut heavy hone lgti hai. Unhe lagta hai kahin unhe heart attack na aa jaye , ya vo collapse na kar jaayen. To humne aisa kayi baar dekha hai ki jinko panic attack hota hai , vo hospital bhaagte hain especially apna ECG krane k liye, ki kahin heart attack to nahi hai. Ek or OCD hai isme vyakti ko repetitive thoughts ya, images ya impulsive aate hain jo unke control mein nahi rehte or is vajah se patient ko bahut stress mehsus hota hai. Us anxiety ko deal karne k liye vo kuch na kuch repetitive behave karte hain , jisko compulsive bola jaata hai - jaise iski common theme ho sakti hai saaf safayi ko leke. Uska result hota hai ki person starts washing there hand again and again. They take bath again and again. Aise hi kuch log hote hain jo baar baar locks check karte hain , ya gas stove check karte hain ki vo band hai ki nahi. To ye OCD ke symptoms ho sakte hain.

Treatment ki agar hum baat karen to jaise baaki psychological problems hoti hain, anxiety disorder ke liye bhi best treatment and best combination of medicines and psychotherapy hoti hai. Medicines mein psychiatric medicines ho sakti hain, allopathy medicines hoti hain, anxiety medicines and even homeopathy medicines kaafi effective hain. Psychotherapy mein CBT jahan pe hum focus krte hain , vyakati ke jo false perception hain ya jo thinking hai , jaise jo situation itni dangerous nahi hai ya jo threatening nahi hai ya usko threatening soch lete hain, they start thinking of extreme, ki ye ho jayega is situation mein ya vo ho jayega. Through therapy, that is what we try to identify , ki kya thinking process chal rha hai jahan pe error ho raha hai ya problem ho rahi hai usko identify krane ke baad usey hum modify karte hain and the person is trained to think in a different manner or jab unki perception change hoti hai , they start thinking in a different way.

Jab unka behavior hota hai ki they start facing the situation more often, confidently face karte hain, unka anxiety or darr automatically kam hone lagta hain. Iske alawa kuch relaxation exercises hain , jo sikhayi jaati hai vyakti ko , to calm themselves down on general basis, especially jab unko koi anxiety hoti hai, us time ke liye vo cheez kam karti hai. Iske aalwa ye chiz bhi samjhni bahut zaruri hai ki anxiety bahut natural phenomena hai, jo hum sabhi ko hota hai.

To hum anxiety se na darr ke un symptoms ko hone de, vo automatically subside kar jayega, quki hmari body us tarike se program me nahi hai ki hum us stage mein bahut der ke liye persist kar sakte hain ya reh sakte hain. Agar hum anxiety us time hone dein, it will automatically settle down without doing extra any other thing. So, you just be with anxiety and let it pass and you will feel better automatically. Iske alwa agar kbhi apko ya apke parivaar me kisi ko anxiety ke symptoms mehsus hon ya aap observe kar skte hain to aap AKGs Ovihams Medical Center joki Delhi me hai, pitampura, rajouri garden or moti bagh me available hai, aap humse psychological and homeopathic treatment k lia consult kar skte hain. Thank you.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Kaartik Gupta. I am a clinical psychologist. Aaj hum depression ke bare me bat krenge. Depression jaisa ki aap sab log jante hain bhut hi common problem hai, psychological problem hai. Agar hum sirf India ki bat kren, usme lag bhag har 4 me se 1 insan ko depression ki problem hai. Depression bhut commonly use hone vala word hai. I think sabse pehle jruri hai ki hum smjh len ki depression hota kya hai. Hum sabhi ko kbhi na kbhi low feel hota hai, sad feel hota hai lekin kuch time baad hmara mood thik ho jata hai. Jab hum clinical depression ki bat krte hain to isme main 3 features hote hain, 3 symptoms hote hain jiska symptoms hota hai ki low mood hota hai, loss of pleasure hota hai. Jo pehle apko chizen achi lgti thi, aap enjoy krte the or easy fatigue feel hota hai. Mtlb bina jyada kam kre hue bhi insan ko thakan mehsus hoti hai. Yye sare lakshan kam se kam 2 hafte k lia persist krte hain. Or vo across time rehte hain. Inke alwa concentration me affect aane lgta hai. Uski jo sexual energy hai ya fir loss of libido hai, usme kami mehsus hone lgti hai. Confidence kam hone lgta hai.

Or kayi cases me depression severe hone lga hai. Suicidal behavior bhi dekhne ko milta hai. To ye basically clinical depression ki picture hoti hai. Hum jis tarike se commonly use krte hain ki me depress hun, vo actually clinical depression nhi hota hai. To I think ye sabse jruri hai hum sabko smjhne k lia. Agar hum iske karano ki bat kren ki what causes depression like any other psychological problem, biological, psychological or social factors hote hain jiski vjha se clinical depression ho skta hai. Biological factors me agar hum dekhen to genetic factors ho skte hain. Agar parivar me kisi ko bhi psychological problem ya depression ki history rhi hai to us vaykti ko hone ki tendency badh jati hai. Jaise ki kisi bhi or bimari me hota hai chahe vo thyroid ho ya diabetes ho ya hypertension ho. Isi trha ye bhi hereditary ho skti hai. Dusra hmare dimag me neuro chemicals hote hain jo hmare brain ki functioning ko control krte hain. Unhi me se ek chemical hota hai jisko hum serotonin bolte hain. Isko happy hormone bhi bola jata hai. Studies ne dikhaya hai ki jin logon ko depression hota hai, un logon me jo serotonin ki matra hai jo vo kam ho jati hai.

Vo thoda sa imbalance ho jata hai. Psychological factors ki bat kren to hmara jo prospective hai ya chizon ko dekhne ka nazariya hai, agar vo kafi negative hai, or hmari personality is tarike ki hai agar koi vayakti jo negative prospective rkhta hai, har chiz me problem dekhta hai, un logon ko depression hone ki tendency bhi badh jati hai compared to someone who has a optimum view to life. Social factors me agar kisi tarike ka tanav mehsus hota hai ya koi stressful situation hoti hai jaise kisi ki job chut jati hai ya koi relationship break-up hota hai ya koi or tarike ka stress ata hai to us vjha se bhi clinical depression ka episode initiate ho skta hai. Treatment ki agar hum bat kren to medications me psychiatrist and allopathic medicines hoti hai. Homepathic medicines bhi hain kafi effective hain.

Psychological aspect ki bat kren to psycho therapy hai jisko counsling se bhi jana jata hai. Through CBT which is the form of therapy for treating depression. Yhan pe unke emotions ko handle krne k lia kam kia jata hai. Kaise unke sochne ke tarike ko effective bnaya ja skta hai. Jis s unki functioning better ho ske. Iske alwa jo studies me btaya hai ki combination of medications and psychotherapy is the best form of treatment. Depression ek treatable condition hai. Aaj kal hum kafi celebrities ko dekh rhen hai jo iske bare me open up ho rhen hain and kafi iske bare me bat kr rhen hain. Jiska impact ye hua hai ki logon me iske bare me awareness badh gyi hai. And now they are open to come and see any professional clinical psychologist or any other mental health professional. Agr apko ya apke privaar me ye sare lakshan apko nazar aate hai ya apnea ap mehsus hote hain to aap humse consultation le skte hain. Delhi me hmare 3 centers hai. Ek Pitampura, ek Rajouri Garden or ek Satya Niketan, Moti Bagh me. To aap hmare pas aake homeopathy plus psychological treatment k lia consult kar skte hain.

Thank You!

4 F's of Fear - Rising Above It!

4 F's of Fear - Rising Above It!

Fear, anxiety and stress can often lead humans to either escape the situation or fight it by defending themselves. But there are other behaviours that humans turn to when they are under stress. This is not unnatural at all; we all face it at some point in time. What’s more, even dogs revert to the four Fs when under stress. Let us find out what are they and also how to deal with them.

  1. Fight: Fighting back is the natural reaction, which we turn to when we want to defend ourselves. Shouting at someone might give you some confidence for the time being. But again, it is not a permanent solution. We might end up apologising for our behaviour later but do nothing to address the situation that brought about that kind of behaviour.
  2. Flight: This is the escape mode that we turn to when we want to avoid a certain person or scenario, that might lead to stress. However, it must be remembered that, fleeing stress will help in fixing it temporarily. But since the situation remains unchanged, it will keep happening again and again.
  3. Freeze: For some people, the shock is so overwhelming that it becomes difficult for them to react at all. They simply freeze. The person goes into the panic mode and fails to move or say anything.
  4. Fool around: This option seems to be not a very bad idea in times of stress and anxiety depending on exactly what you mean by fooling around. If you can crack a joke at a tensed situation and lighten the mood, it helps immensely. However, if your idea of fooling around is to avoid talking about the situation and instead have fun, talk about other silly things, then it might not be a good idea.

Dealing with stress is not easy, but if you have realised the cause for your stress, your problem is half solved. If it is something you can change, then start working on it. If not, then it is best to let things happen in their own sweet way, while you change your attitude towards it. If you have realised what kind of behaviour your turn to when under stress, it is easier to face the situation. Listen to some of your favourite music, wear clothes that make you feel good and think about the situation and the possible solution later. Don’t let stress get to you, face situations, keep calm and be positive!
 

5 Signs Your Partner Could Be Manipulating You Emotionally!

5 Signs Your Partner Could Be Manipulating You Emotionally!

Have you noticed yourself feeling diminished consistently? Do you find yourself apologizing to your partner even despite being on the receiving end of your lover’s bad behavior? Have you been feeling that your partner takes you for granted and also takes advantage of you? If the answer of these questions is a ‘YES’ then it establishes that your partner could be manipulating you emotionally.

Being in a relationship with an emotional manipulator may not only scar you emotionally but also cause severe damage to you in the long run. Here are some warning signs to watch out for:

1. Your partner diminishes your feelings: Emotional manipulators are selfish people and are concerned solely about themselves and their desires. They do not care about your feelings and when you try to share some grief or feelings, they may turn you down by saying you are stupid or are over-reacting. Sometimes, their manipulative nature makes you think that they are right. An emotional manipulator also does not apologize and blames you for something, which is actually their fault.

2. Your partner often lets you down: If you get insulted, embarrassed or are made fun of by your partner frequently, especially in public, he or she is likely to be an emotional manipulator. The person is likely to prey on all your insecurities. You may be made fun of in front of your family and friends, by your partner, which crosses the limit of joking. Even if you convey that you are hurt by these actions, they do not change.

3. Your partner blames you for their bad behavior: An emotional manipulator will never take the blame or responsibility of their bad deeds. Instead, they will try to put the entire blame on you with lame justifications. If your partner could be manipulating you emotionally, it is likely that he or she would ask you over and over about your feelings.

4. Your partner does not explain themselves: Emotional manipulators are likely to hold back their issues and do not bother to explain their actions. Actually, such people do not intend to connect emotionally with you. They will try to impose themselves upon you and feel that they are superior than you. Such people get angry very easily if you cannot manage time for them.

5. Your partner changes ways only after extremities: Emotional manipulators do not care about your feelings and when you are fed up and want to leave, they start overreacting and promise to make positive changes. However, after a while they regain their previous attitude.

If you relate with the above mentioned pointers, it is possible that your partner might be manipulating you emotionally. The best way to deal with such a situation is to seek professional help from a Psychologist and work around the problem. If your partner does not agree for professional help, at least you must take guidance to protect your mental and emotional well-being.

Healthy Parent-Child Relationships - Know The Importance!

Healthy Parent-Child Relationships - Know The Importance!

Becoming a parent is a delightful experience, but even happy experiences can be stressful. Parenting involves lot of responsibility as you are trying to shape, nurture and even protect your little one to develop into a healthy and successful individual. In their pursuit, some parents try way too hard and unintentionally end up limiting or even causing damage to their child's vulnerable sense of self. There is NOTHING CALLED PERFECT PARENTING and you keep learning from your own childhood, how your parents brought you up, and how you are handling your child now. It is a constant learning process and the journey can be made more beneficial for the parents as well as the child by implementing some of the following ways:-

  1. Spending quality time with your child: Quality time refes to the time spent with your child in some way important. It is time that is set aside for paying full and undivided attention to your child. According to psychologists spending quality time with your kids is of great importance as it helps in strengthening the bond between you and your kid, understanding your child better and making your child feel important and loved. The behavioral issues your child is showing maybe because of that he or she wants more of your time.
  2. Positive reinforcement for promoting good behaviors: Appreciating and encouraging your child's good behaviour and even acknowledging his/her efforts is of utmost importance in shaping your child's self-confidence.
  3. Ignoring negative behaviors to obliterate them: Sometimes, as a parent, you need to overlook the mistakes or bad behaviors shown by your kid to annihilate them. This means, scolding your kid upon failure or discouraging him that he is not good enough as he lacks good behavior can do mental damage to your kids and in no way can make them a better person. Sometimes, ignoring a few of their mistakes, failures or bad behavior can help them in overcoming their drawbacks.
  4. Healthy and honest communication between parents and children: The parents should indulge in regular conversation with their children as it helps the parents as well as the children to understand each other's points. It can be of great benefits if the parents first calmly listen to their children first before telling them anything to do.
  5. Shared responsibilities at home: Shared responsibilities at home and making your child accountable for looking after certain tasks at home; be it keeping his/her room clean or watering the plants daily, etc. can help the children in becoming very responsible. It should always be kept in mind that children are very keen observers and they learn a lot from what happens around them. Thus, parents need to be careful with what they say, how they say and how they behave especially in front of the child. If you expect your child not to spend too much time playing games on the mobile or tablet, you need to do the same first.

Ensuring a functional and healthy relationship between you and your child is the best way to boost the sense of commitment, consideration, communication, and cooperation. Also, a healthy connection between you and your child can help in reducing conflicts and stress while encouraging the young minds to make healthy choices in life and set strong individual values.

Hi Doctor, I am facing binge eating, anxiety and frequently changing thoughts/emotions. I tried different things, but was not successful. This is to give a brief idea to you. Thank you, Kamal.

Hi Doctor, I am facing binge eating, anxiety and frequently changing thoughts/emotions. I tried different things, but...
Dear Lybrate user, It is good that you are seeking help. However, I would advise you to consult a Clinical Psychologist in person and get evaluated properly before any treatment is initiated. Best wishes.

My 6 year old son, who will soon be 7 in October has suddenly started crying whenever he goes to school. The same school he attended since lkg. Now he is in class 2. This happened a few months back. Every morning, the moment we reach his school, he starts getting real clingy and panicky. He says he's scared of people who will harm him. This fear has extended to his tuition class as well, where there is a small group of around 10-12 children. This act is stressing out all in the family. We have done all we could and have totally run out of ideas. Kindly advice, Thanks.

Dear Lybrate user, It is a very important phase of life for you and your child and I really appreciate the fact that you are seeking professional help regarding the same. Your child might be feeling scare or apprehensive in being with people other than his immediate family. If this is a recent development, there is a probability that something significant has happened or that your child is apprehensive of something bad happening. It is imperative that you talk to your child and ask what exactly is going through his mind, what is he thinking. Make him feel comfortable and secure with your presence and encourage him to speak up what's on his mind. If it still persists, I would advise you to meet a Child Psychologist in person and seek professional help as the professionals are well-trained in dealing with such issues in children. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Anxiety And Its Symptoms

Hello Everyone! My name is Dr Kaartik Gupta and I am a clinical psychologist at AKGs Ovihams Medical Center.

Aaj hum anxiety ke baare mein baat karenge. Anxiety bahut hi common and natural phenomena hai. Jo humein kabhi na kabhi kisi na kisi situation mein experience hota hi hai. Anxiety ke apne kuch faayde bhi hain. Jaise hum iske revolution prospect ki baat karen to isne hi ensure kia tha ki sab survive karen. Jab bhi hume kahin na kahin threat mehsus hota hai, hamari jo anxiety ka response hai , vo activate ho jaata hai. Activate hone ka matlb hai ki hamari body is tarike se bani hui hai, ki jab bhi hum arouse hote hain ya jab bhi humein threat mehsus hota hai, hamari body automatically fight-flight-freeze response ke mode mein aa jaati hai. Jiska matlb ye hota hai ki ya to hum us situation mein ladenge, ya to hum us situation se bhaagne ki koshish karenge ya hum bilkul numb ho jaate hain.

Agar hum symptoms ki baat karen anxiety ke ya jo commonly humein mehsus hote hain, uske physical symptoms hote hain , jaise ki hamari heart-beat badh jaati hai, pulse rate badh jati hai, breathing heavy hone lagti hai, kayi logon ko sweating hone lagta hai specially palm mein sweating ho jaata hai, dry mouth hone lagta hai. To ye saare physical symptoms hai anxiety hone ke. Psychological symptoms hote hain ki hum overthink karne lagte hain, hum future ke baare mein darane lagte hain, hum apprehensive hone lagte hain. Ek hi time pe dimaag mein hazaron khayal aate hain, jisko hum racing thoughts bolte hain. Behavioral responses hote hain ki hum restless hone lgte hain.

Kayi log start speaking faster, kayi log fumble karne lagte hain ya even stammer karne lagte hain. Ye behavioral symptoms hain anxiety ke , jo dusron ko bhi mehsus hote hain ya unko dikhne lagte hain. Hum sab anxiety disorder ki baat karte hain , to vo disorder isliye kaha jaata hai ki jab ye anxiety itni zyaada severe ho jaye , ya hum itne zyaada intense ho jaaye or itna frequently mehsus hone lage ki hamari personal, occupational, or social functioning hai, uspe uska impact aane lage. Tab hum anxiety ko ek anxiety disorder kehte hain. Anxiety disorder mein kayi saare sub-types hote hai, jaise generalised anxiety disorder jisko hum GAD kehte hain ya free floating anxiety bolte hain.

Iske symptoms apko lagataar 6 mahine ke liye mehsus hote hain jahan mein aapki body mein stiffness hoti hai, nausea ho sakta hai, restlessness reh sakti hai, palpitaion bhi bahut common hai. Dusra ho sakta hai phobia - jisko hum fear bhi bolte hain. It is fear of a specific situation or an object. Us situation ko hum avoid karne lagte hain, quki humein lagta hai ki ye hamare liye bahut threatening hai or us avoidance ki vajah se hi hamara darr badhne lagta hai.

Ek or disorder hai - panic disorder. Jisme vyakti ko panic disorder hote hain, palpitations hote hain , reathing bahut heavy hone lgti hai. Unhe lagta hai kahin unhe heart attack na aa jaye , ya vo collapse na kar jaayen. To humne aisa kayi baar dekha hai ki jinko panic attack hota hai , vo hospital bhaagte hain especially apna ECG krane k liye, ki kahin heart attack to nahi hai. Ek or OCD hai isme vyakti ko repetitive thoughts ya, images ya impulsive aate hain jo unke control mein nahi rehte or is vajah se patient ko bahut stress mehsus hota hai. Us anxiety ko deal karne k liye vo kuch na kuch repetitive behave karte hain , jisko compulsive bola jaata hai - jaise iski common theme ho sakti hai saaf safayi ko leke. Uska result hota hai ki person starts washing there hand again and again. They take bath again and again. Aise hi kuch log hote hain jo baar baar locks check karte hain , ya gas stove check karte hain ki vo band hai ki nahi. To ye OCD ke symptoms ho sakte hain.

Psychotherapy mein CBT jahan pe hum focus krte hain , vyakati ke jo false perception hain ya jo thinking hai , jaise jo situation itni dangerous nahi hai ya jo threatening nahi hai ya usko threatening soch lete hain, they start thinking of extreme, ki ye ho jayega is situation mein ya vo ho jayega. Through therapy, that is what we try to identify , ki kya thinking process chal rha hai jahan pe error ho raha hai ya problem ho rahi hai usko identify krane ke baad usey hum modify karte hain and the person is trained to think in a different manner or jab unki perception change hoti hai , they start thinking in a different way.

Jab unka behavior hota hai ki they start facing the situation more often, confidently face karte hain, unka anxiety or darr automatically kam hone lagta hain. Iske alawa kuch relaxation exercises hain , jo sikhayi jaati hai vyakti ko , to calm themselves down on general basis, especially jab unko koi anxiety hoti hai, us time ke liye vo cheez kam karti hai. Iske aalwa ye chiz bhi samjhni bahut zaruri hai ki anxiety bahut natural phenomena hai, jo hum sabhi ko hota hai.

To hum anxiety se na darr ke un symptoms ko hone de, vo automatically subside kar jayega, quki hmari body us tarike se program me nahi hai ki hum us stage mein bahut der ke liye persist kar sakte hain ya reh sakte hain.

How Can You Handle Examination Anxiety?

How Can You Handle Examination Anxiety?

The exam season has arrived. Students can be seen immersed in their books and notes. Excitement is in the air and so is anxiety. While the former is a good thing to see, the latter raises concerns in the minds of parents and teachers but the fact is that anxiety before exams is a normal thing. The pressure to perform will make students experience nervousness, which is alright, but only if it is up to a limit. If it reaches an unhealthy level, it needs to be managed. If a student experiences the following symptoms before exams, then the anxiety is unhealthy and it is time for a session with a psychologist.

  1. Excessive sweating
  2. Fast heartbeat
  3. Nausea
  4. Headache
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Difficulty in breathing
  7. Lightheadedness
  8. Dizziness
  9. Dry mouth
  10. Gastrointestinal discomfort

These symptoms are an indication of the student being in the grip of panic and fear. Nevertheless, it can be managed and controlled with the following tips.

  1. Make a study plan for preparation: In some cases, students get anxious because they are not ready with the preparation and days before the exam, they feel at a loss as to how they will answer the questions in the exam. To avoid this, students should make a plan for preparation, devoting adequate time to each topic so that the entire syllabus is covered and their preparation is complete.
  2. Meditate and try breathing techniques: Meditation is a great relaxation technique that soothes the mind and body. Also, taking deep breaths (inhaling and exhaling) for 15 to 20 minutes can go a long way in controlling the symptoms of anxiety. In addition, meditation gives you confidence, removes negative thoughts and also improves your concentration and memory.
  3. Exercise regularly: Getting involved in physical activity before an exam seems like a waste of time to many but it is necessary to avoid tension and stay healthy. So, if sports cannot be indulged into, one should go for exercises such as stretching and aerobics as they relax the tensed muscles and keep fatigue at bay.
  4. Eat green vegetables and light food: Eating healthy is also important during exam preparation. If one skips meals or takes recourse to fast foods, it makes anxiety worse. In fact, junk food makes one drowsy. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables are light and easy to digest. They also provide complete nutrition and ensure the sustained release of energy during the study sessions.
  5. Sleep well: Many students compromise on sleep thinking it would help in studies but lack of sleep leads to poor focus and concentration which further affects the studies. It also makes one irritable and drowsy. So, one should make sure that one is getting 6 hours of sleep every day.

Exam anxiety is not an uncommon phenomenon. In fact, it is said that a small amount of anxiety is a good thing as it motivates one to perform better. It leads to nervous energy which keeps one alert but the moment it gets out of hand, it is a cause for concern. So, one must seek help if one is experiencing the anxiety symptoms and follow the above-mentioned tips. It will surely help a student. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Kaartik Gupta. I am a clinical psychologist. Aaj hum depression ke bare me bat krenge. Depression jaisa ki aap sab log jante hain bhut hi common problem hai, psychological problem hai. Agar hum sirf India ki bat kren, usme lag bhag har 4 me se 1 insan ko depression ki problem hai. Depression bhut commonly use hone vala word hai. I think sabse pehle jruri hai ki hum smjh len ki depression hota kya hai. Hum sabhi ko kbhi na kbhi low feel hota hai, sad feel hota hai lekin kuch time baad hmara mood thik ho jata hai. Jab hum clinical depression ki bat krte hain to isme main 3 features hote hain, 3 symptoms hote hain jiska symptoms hota hai ki low mood hota hai, loss of pleasure hota hai. Jo pehle apko chizen achi lgti thi, aap enjoy krte the or easy fatigue feel hota hai. Mtlb bina jyada kam kre hue bhi insan ko thakan mehsus hoti hai. Yye sare lakshan kam se kam 2 hafte k lia persist krte hain. Or vo across time rehte hain. Inke alwa concentration me affect aane lgta hai. Uski jo sexual energy hai ya fir loss of libido hai, usme kami mehsus hone lgti hai. Confidence kam hone lgta hai.

Or kayi cases me depression severe hone lga hai. Suicidal behavior bhi dekhne ko milta hai. To ye basically clinical depression ki picture hoti hai. Hum jis tarike se commonly use krte hain ki me depress hun, vo actually clinical depression nhi hota hai. To I think ye sabse jruri hai hum sabko smjhne k lia. Agar hum iske karano ki bat kren ki what causes depression like any other psychological problem, biological, psychological or social factors hote hain jiski vjha se clinical depression ho skta hai. Biological factors me agar hum dekhen to genetic factors ho skte hain. Agar parivar me kisi ko bhi psychological problem ya depression ki history rhi hai to us vaykti ko hone ki tendency badh jati hai. Jaise ki kisi bhi or bimari me hota hai chahe vo thyroid ho ya diabetes ho ya hypertension ho. Isi trha ye bhi hereditary ho skti hai. Dusra hmare dimag me neuro chemicals hote hain jo hmare brain ki functioning ko control krte hain. Unhi me se ek chemical hota hai jisko hum serotonin bolte hain. Isko happy hormone bhi bola jata hai. Studies ne dikhaya hai ki jin logon ko depression hota hai, un logon me jo serotonin ki matra hai jo vo kam ho jati hai.

Vo thoda sa imbalance ho jata hai. Psychological factors ki bat kren to hmara jo prospective hai ya chizon ko dekhne ka nazariya hai, agar vo kafi negative hai, or hmari personality is tarike ki hai agar koi vayakti jo negative prospective rkhta hai, har chiz me problem dekhta hai, un logon ko depression hone ki tendency bhi badh jati hai compared to someone who has a optimum view to life. Social factors me agar kisi tarike ka tanav mehsus hota hai ya koi stressful situation hoti hai jaise kisi ki job chut jati hai ya koi relationship break-up hota hai ya koi or tarike ka stress ata hai to us vjha se bhi clinical depression ka episode initiate ho skta hai. Treatment ki agar hum bat kren to medications me psychiatrist and allopathic medicines hoti hai. Homepathic medicines bhi hain kafi effective hain.

Psychological aspect ki bat kren to psycho therapy hai jisko counsling se bhi jana jata hai. Through CBT which is the form of therapy for treating depression. Yhan pe unke emotions ko handle krne k lia kam kia jata hai. Kaise unke sochne ke tarike ko effective bnaya ja skta hai. Jis s unki functioning better ho ske. Iske alwa jo studies me btaya hai ki combination of medications and psychotherapy is the best form of treatment. Depression ek treatable condition hai. Aaj kal hum kafi celebrities ko dekh rhen hai jo iske bare me open up ho rhen hain and kafi iske bare me bat kr rhen hain. Jiska impact ye hua hai ki logon me iske bare me awareness badh gyi hai. And now they are open to come and see any professional clinical psychologist or any other mental health professional.

Adolescent Anxiety - 10 Things To Help Cope With It!

Adolescent Anxiety - 10 Things To Help Cope With It!

Anxiety is a common issue with growing teenagers. It is not the typical anxiety before exams or academic projects. It is more than that. Anxiety may be the result of the hormonal changes, which predominantly affect the adolescent years of growth. While your body copes with different changes, your mind tangles between the future liberty and present restrictions.

Knowing certain facts about this anxiety trail can help you to cope with it.

1. Anxiety is not always a disease: Anxiety is not always a disease. It is a normal phenomenon among adolescent teenagers. However, in certain cases it may be severe for some teenagers. They may feel crippled with anxiety. Under such cases, one would require psychiatric help.

2. Talk to someone: A great way to relieve yourself from stress due to anxiety is to speak with someone. It can be a friend or someone close to share your thoughts. If you know the reason of your anxiety, share it, discuss it. You will definitely feel better.

3. Take a break: Entertainment and break from academic work and schedule is necessary for teenagers to lower anxiety traits. However, if the anxiety is due to peers, you may even take a break from them and engage in family.

4. Cry out loud: It is not a silly thing to cry when you are stressed under anxiety. Crying is an emotional outburst which essentially relieves the stress due to anxiety and lets you control the emotional disturbed state of mind.

5. Good sleep: Sleep is necessary for both mental and physical rest. You need to overcome from the fatigue of routine works, stressful events, peer factor, etc. Catching the essential 8 hour sleep is a great way to overcome anxiety issues.

6. Don’t be conscious: Anxiety is a common factor among all your peers. You are not the only one coping with anxiety stress. So, take it light. Relax and don’t be conscious about your anxiety problems. Consider them to be temporary.

7. Be confident: Losing confidence under the stress due to anxiety can be even more disastrous. The effects will never be better. So be confident about whatever you do, whether right or wrong. Every person learns from his own activities. Whether right or wrong, everything will give you a lesson. So you will never be a loser, you will win a lesson.

8. Don’t feel stupid: Being stressed with anxiety is not abnormal or stupid. Everything is okay with you, and you are not the stupid fellow out there.

9. You are not weak: Anxiety is not a sign of weakness. You can rather make it your strength. Fight it back and keep your energy and enthusiasm high.

10. Anxiety is temporary: As you move ahead of the adolescent period, anxiety will faint. You will be more confident and matured, able to tackle anxiety. So consider it to be an affair of a few years.

If you or any of your loved one feels anxious very often and that tends to have an impact on your overall functioning, it is advised that you meet a Clinical Psychologist in person and seek appropriate help as it is a treatable condition. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
