Hello Lybrate User........ Exercise Nutrition Meditation Creative Projects Spirituality These might look like your typical answers but that’s simply because they work well. There are other things to consider too though like: Sleep Stress Management Hypnosis Therapy These are incredibly important to health and mental well being. So to run through all these things in quick order. Exercise I just started with walking when I quit my medications. I’d go for hour long walks and found it really helped me get out of my head and into my body. The motion alone was really freeing. If you’re comfortable and feel safe walking alone I highly recommend it, otherwise find a walking buddy or even put together a walking group. You can use resources like We are what we do | Meetup to create a group of like minded walkers. Recently I have incorporated tai chi and weight lifting into my exercise regiment as well. Both make me feel great. It’s important though in starting new habits to smart small. Choose something like tai chi, walking or yoga and just go and do it. Play to what works best for you, if you get socially anxious going for a walk might be better than going to a yoga class. If you’ve been attacked before then group activities might be better for you. Nutrition Cut down on foods that spike blood sugar like carbs and sugar as blood sugar spikes and crashes can cause stress in the body and anxiety. Increase proteins as amino acids are the precursors for important neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine and GAPA. Tryptophan, Tyrosine and L-Glutamine are especially important. Cut out inflammatory foods like sugar, night shades and processed foods. Inflammation has been shown to affect anxiety and depression. Eat plenty of probiotic rich foods like keifer, greek yogurt or fermented foods as probiotics allow your body to digest micronutrients essential for health neuraltransmitter production. Meditation This helped me a ton and has helped every one of my clients with depression, anxiety and stress. Most people think they can’t meditate because they’ve been told to make their minds go blank. That’s not what meditation is about. Meditation is about focusing the mind. It comes from a practice that realizes the mind is an organ of worry. It has evolved to figure out whats going wrong and try and fix it. The problem is that it’ll start to try and fix problems that aren’t there if we let it just run wild. Meditation is a way of focusing the mind so as to make room and space for simple awareness. It’s best to start off with small sessions, 1–5 minutes and go from there. Just focus on your breath and when your mind wanders laugh it off and bring your attention back to your breath. The goal isn’t an empty mind, the goal is to catch when your mind runs away, acknowledge that and bring your mind back to your breath. I’ve seen clients overcome life long anxiety riddled with daily anxiety attacks simply by working with breath, protein, and hypnosis. Creative Projects Part of my healing path really focused around writing. I got into fiction, poetry and free association writing. It helps me get my thoughts on paper and work through my emotions. Other people paint or draw or make pottery. There’s really no wrong answer. Creating things helps you focus on something else while you process your emotions and then gives you a finished product when you’re done. Finishing something is a great reward in and of itself. This doesn't mean you need to finish a book, just knowing you wrote a poem even if no one else reads it still gives you something that you've accomplished with your time. Spirituality I simply wouldn’t be telling you the truth if I left out spirituality from my healing experience. For me it became a quest all of its own. I explored a lot of traditions and picked up what worked for me. Along the way I discovered that there were a lot of aspects to my previous spiritual beliefs that helped cause my depression. By looking at my life through a variety of other lenses I was able to develop a way of looking at life that worked for me while feeling more connected to others and the world in general. Sleep It’s critical. Make sure you are getting it. If you need any help with that here are a few pointers: Eat foods high in Tryptophan, the precursor to Serotonin and Melatonin: Seeds, especially pumpkin Cheese Lamb, Beef, Goat, Pork Eat foods high in Melatonin: Nuts and seeds. Especially walnuts, peanuts and sunflower seeds. Tomatoes Olives Oats Eggs Fish Milk Unplug Get away from news and social media before bed. Therapy from professional Finally, therapy really does help. Having an outside perspective on things can really help you move through them more effectively and it is helpful to have someone you can tell anything without having to worry about relationship repercussions. I pushed therapy off for years. While I was able to get myself to a point where I was doing fine on my own managing my mental health I got tired of “just doing fine.” I’ve been in therapy for a year now and while the results are subtle they build up and really can help you a ton. Especially when paired with any of the above. Hope that helps! I know that depression and anxiety can be incredibly hard to deal with and work through. I’ve had those days, weeks and months where I couldn’t get out of bed and those times when the world felt like it was ending for no apparent reason. I can say though that there ways to manage and even overcome both depression and anxiety that don’t require medication. It’s worked for me and I’ve seen it work for others. The most important thing you’ll need though is patience with yourself as you figure out what works for you.

Remember, its just a phase of life and it will pass on. Nothing is permanent in life, not even good times. Never let this time shake your attitude. Few things that I did, and can be done by others to avoid getting into depression are: Distance yourself from negative people. Your failure was your past. It does'nt defines you. You have a whole future ahead of you. Avoid indulging in bad habits like smoking and drinking. It will worsen your condition of depression and take you further into it. Start a hobby. It can be anything. For me it was Photography. I joined a group of photographers from my city and we used to go for photowalks every weekend. Choose anything from sports, arts,writing, teaching,cooking, singing etc. Keep yourself Busy. Yes, its hell lot of important to keep yourself busy all day. Even if you do not have any work, just volunteer someone to do their work and be occupied. Make good friends. Always be the first one to initiate a plan or hangout. Take lots of smiling pictures and share each others story. Talk Positive. Never use words like No, Never,Do not, But,If etc in your conversations. Always have the "Yes, I can" attitude. Read a lot of books whenever you get time. Read about people who never gave up at any point of time in their lives. Read about people who hit rock bottom and bounced back. Share these stories with your friends and cousins. Make short goals and achieve it. The goals should be within your reach. Congratulate yourself for your own success. Treat yourself with the food you like. Listen to inspiring songs and videos. Do not listen to sad songs and stuff. View motivational stuff on the net. Make a habit to wake up early and exercise. Join a gym if you can. Once you will see the changes you yourself will be inspired to do more. Everyone starts from Zero. No one reaches the top just like that. Make a list of your weaknesses and start making them your strength one by one. Always remember "Rome was not built in a day" This is all what I did to get out of depression by time.

Hello Lybrate user. You probably need to find out the root cause. Because the reason for the problem could be due to several factors like social, Psychological or physical. One thing for sure what I know is if there is deficiency of oxygen in your blood then you could feel tired all the time. So, test your blood and maintain a diet that will supply enough oxygen to your blood. Also, get enough rest as you feel stressed all the time, if you don’t get enough sleep then it is very common that you are feeling tired easily. And if your are going through any emotional issues then try to fix them it will get you out of stress. Try to meditate. It can calm your mind and body. It takes a lot of energy to be stressed. When I have a highly stressful day or event, I find the next day I get what I call an “emotional hangover.” I am tired, have lessened energy, and feel just generally under the weather. People under chronic stress (i.e. In cases of divorce or death, chronic physical or mental illness, regular family discord or abuse, poverty, neglect, addiction, homelessness, war) will find themselves in a continual state of fatigue and feeling unwell. :(Especially when you are stressed —but always — it is a good idea to listen to your body. Look for ways you can possibly minimize or eliminate the stressor (s) and/or at least its effects on you (i.e. Stress management tools, cognitive-behavioral changes, counseling, exercise, nutritional support) and try as best as circumstances will allow, to get enough good quality sleep, while eating well, staying hydrated, exercising, and engaging in relaxing/down time if at all possible. These changes are not always possible to do well or even at all during times of stress or trauma, but it is certainly what the body is needing.

Sir I am drinking alcohol since last 3 days please suggest immediately want to go out. Any medicine pry any work out.

M.A.(H)Psychology, PG Diploma in Child Guidance and Family Therapy
Psychologist, Delhi
You put your glass down and stop drinking. But really, your first question to yourself has to be whether you feel a deep seeded urge to drink, or whether you just feel like you ought to stop. Alcoholism is a disease, and not every weekend binge drinker out there has it. I recommend that you do a bit of research and ask yourself the necessary questions in order to determine which category you fall under. If you feel that you may be an alcoholic, you will want to sort out some support and accountability - whether that's AA, a private therapist or any other option, it's important that you first seek support. And then, I would speak to a medical professional in order to establish healthy practices. Strong body + Strong mind = great help in getting through a rough project. If, on the other hand, you determine that you are not an alcoholic and you are looking to cut back: then you need to be mindful. You're going to have to be aware of your surroundings, of the situations you engage in and the company that you keep. Because your life choices have probably influenced your levels of alcohol consumption. Once you pin point your boozey instigators, you'll be able to start mitigating those factors in favor of sober living. Either way, best of luck! It's not an easy thing, but if you want to do it [quit drinking), you will find a way to do so. This is the excerpt from my essay: Motivation and Action points. Start with the purpose After I quit my bad habits I have started to think differently about smoking, drinking, and addictions in general. People don’t smoke or drink because they are addicted. They do so because they don’t have a purpose in life. The first and foremost thing one who decided to quit drinking is to identify the purpose. Find your WHY! Why do you want to quit? What is the reason behind all reasons? “For the sake of what?” have you decided to quit? What will keep you going once the desire to indulge will be the strongest? Finding the answer to these questions is the most crucial step of all. Don’t keep your purpose in your head. Write it by hand on the paper. By writing your intentions on the paper you are manifesting your decisiveness and will. Post it on the wall so that it is always in front of you. Remember why you started. Educate yourself Motivation is temporary. It needs fuel to keep burning. Knowledge is the fuel. In order to keep going, you need to constantly saturate yourself with the information related to the adverse effects of alcohol consumption. Learn physiology and anatomy. You need to know what changes are taking place in your body every time you allow the poison to penetrate your body. Example. Alcohol dissolves lipid layer on the thrombocytes (red blood cells) causing them to stick to each other and create an assembly called thrombus. Thrombus has no trouble traveling in the larger vessels but when they reach small capillaries in the brain they stuck them causing the death of neurons. Dead neurons leave your body with urine. You are literally pissing your brain off every morning you have a hangover. I wouldn’t know this if I wouldn’t choose to study this. For me and for those who consider their brain and intellect valuable this is a good argument to quit. Reframe Educating yourself will help you to think critically about the problem and develop the ability to reframe your point of view on drinking. Example. Alcohol is a drug. It is not considered as one but essentially it is. People get addicted and come back for more but most importantly it is an instrument of mass control. Alcohol keeps people stupid, weak-willed and ill which is a perfect state for a corporation slave who can be easily influenced and who is not sick enough to stop working but is sick enough to pay for pills and hospitals sponsoring the system. Slaves are obedient and spineless and can be easily manipulated due to the weakened ability of critical thinking. The question I once I asked myself was: “How long am I going to be a slave?” Go slow If you have a long bad history of drinking alcohol you might not have enough willpower to break the habit at one time. Go slow. Make some rules first that will limit your alcohol consumption. Example. Tell yourself — I will not drink heavy alcohol, 40 degrees and higher, anymore, I will drink only beer, or I will drink only expensive wine. These rules will artificially limit the number of available options. Challenge yourself After some time you will get yourself ready to make a serious call — complete abstinence for a certain amount of days. Alcohol metabolites leave your body within 21 days. For many people, it means that technically they are never sober. For those who have made a decision to quit this means that the first challenge of staying sober should last for 30 days minimum. Every day of the challenge is a little coin to your willpower piggy bank. Every day of staying sober makes your will stronger. Practice Sublimation Keep yourself busy. Find activities that will keep you on the healthy path. For me, it was exercising and it might be the best way to go because it makes you physically and mentally stronger along with massive detoxification while you sweat, but it could be anything. The secret is to find an activity that keeps your mind engaged and busy. Envision the final result You will be there. There is no doubt in that. Visualize where you going and all the positive changes you will have in your lifestyle, health, and relationships. I can tell from my personal experience that the day will come when you will look back on your past self and it will seem like you are looking at a stranger. You will not recognize yourself. Drinking and the justification of it will make no sense at all. Monitor all of the positive changes Keep in mind and notice all of the positive changes that sober life gifts you: You decrease the risk of cirrhosis You decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases Your cognition and your memory improve dramatically You sleep better Your hormone regulation and consequently emotional state level off You tap into the energy potential within you that was never known before You feel better and look better once you stop poisoning yourself Those are just some of the benefits from the list that you will continue in your new life without alcohol. Cut the toxic relationships When I was young I had a lot of “friends”. This is how I called people who shared the bottle with me. No, they were not necessarily bad people. But they were dragging me down due to so-called crab mentality. They never believed that I can quit drinking and were very creative in their ways of discouraging me. Some relationships they are like cancer, you can’t distance yourself from them, you just have to cut them out. Abstinence is like heavy chemo, you will lose all your hair and nerves on the way but if you are strong enough you will resurrect on the other end of the tunnel. Join the group of people with the same purpose. I learned the hard way that real friends are not those who drink with you. Real friends are those who elevate you, they create conditions in which you are forced to better yourself. Surround yourself with people who will reinforce your progress. I know that in the west there are clubs for anonymous alcoholics. The sense of community can be a very powerful tool that could help you to stay persistent on your way. For me, it was hard to find a group like that. So I became a founder of one. I started Mixteam — a street workout and calisthenics team in Almaty, the Republic of Kazakhstan. We shared a common purpose of getting stronger and this experience changed the course of my life forever. I became a workout junkie. Write a public declaration You can also write a declaration where you will manifest that you will quit drinking. If you fail to hold your word, you are obliged to pay a penalty, for example, to pay $10k to your friend who will monitor your progress and make sure you won’t bail out. A friend of mine wrote a declaration where his friends should have shot him in the leg from a gun if he hadn’t closed the manifested objective. Do you think he failed to reach his goal? Everything is a question of how big is your motivation. Final words If you have troubles with alcohol or you know someone who is struggling with it, please, share this essay. It could save someone who is lost like I was once. The journey is hard but it is rewarding. Trust me. Sober life is worth it.

Go see a psychologist, if you have access to it. Anxiety can be managed with CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), but seek assistance in learning how to do it right. Dealing with the anxiety can alleviate enough of the stress that you can start approaching the core of the problems with a clearer mind. Deal with the problems. Again, a psychologist can help.

hello lybrate user............... First. Get professional help. If you are very depressed you should seek out a professional to help you out. Just like any serious medical condition you need help from a professional. That being said. Remember this. You are always in control of how you feel and you always have control of your action. When we suffer from depression it might feel that we can’t do anything to improve. This is an illusion! This is simply not true! This is just a symptom of depression. You can do things to improve. But it will be hard. But the difference between hard and impossible is infinite. You can’t compare it. It would be like a fish trying to breathe. A fish can’t breathe. It is impossible. You can perform any action that a human can because you have control of your body. In general people who suffer depression have a very limited range of activities they perform each day. This is a big problem because your brain needs new experiences to be happy. Your brain is bored and doesn’t know how to respond to this. Your brain wants to tell you that you have to act to get out of depression but can’t so it’s just sending you signals that everything is horrible and is hoping you will pick up on this and act. The only way we shape our world is through action. Thoughts doesn’t matter. So you need to act to improve. I always recommend physical exercise as a first cause of action during depression simply because it works even if you hate it (the anti-depressant effect is caused by the release of neurotransmitter during and after the exercise) and also because it is a fairly simple thing to do. If you have legs that work. You can walk and run. If you haven’t worked out before you start by taking a walk for 10 minutes. If you feel that can continue you keep going after 10 minutes. If you have worked out before start by running for 5 minutes. If you feel that you can continue you keep going after 5 minutes. All the problems in your life are solvable. The first step in solving problems is improving your mood. Once your mood improves you will have the energy to improve other things in your life. Also please seek out professional help. With the help from a professional you will get well.

Hello Lybrate user Concentration is a state of mind. Clarity of thoughts can be achieved very easily with the steps mentioned below: 1. Whenever you are confused, and are in a state of utter overwhelm, take a pen and paper and write down your thoughts. If you carry cell phone all the time, make use of your notepad in it. 2. Then, think rationally which thoughts are useful and which ones are garbage. 3. Focus and keep the useful ones and discard the useless ones then and there. Think only about the ones that are useful. 4. This will help you to cut through overwhelm and have amazing clarity of thoughts. Improving your memory: 9 tips for boosting brain power at any age They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but when it comes to the brain, scientists have discovered that this old adage simply isn’t true. The human brain has an astonishing ability to adapt and change—even into old age. This ability is known as neuroplasticity. With the right stimulation, your brain can form new neural pathways, alter existing connections, and adapt and react in ever-changing ways. The brain’s incredible ability to reshape itself holds true when it comes to learning and memory. You can harness the natural power of neuroplasticity to increase your cognitive abilities, enhance your ability to learn new information, and improve your memory at any age. These 9 tips can show you how: Give your brain a workout Don't skip the physical exercise Get your Zs There is a big difference between the amount of sleep you can get by on and the amount you need to function at your best. The truth is that over 95% of adults need between 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep every night in order to avoid sleep deprivation. Even skimping on a few hours makes a difference! Memory, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and critical thinking skills are all compromised. But sleep is critical to learning and memory in an even more fundamental way. Research shows that sleep is necessary for memory consolidation, with the key memory-enhancing activity occurring during the deepest stages of sleep. Get on a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time each morning. Try not to break your routine, even on weekends and holidays. Avoid all screens for at least an hour before bed. The blue light emitted by TVs, tablets, phones, and computers trigger wakefulness and suppress hormones such as melatonin that make you sleepy. Cut back on caffeine. Caffeine affects people differently. Some people are highly sensitive, and even morning coffee may interfere with sleep at night. Try reducing your intake or cutting it out entirely if you suspect it’s keeping you up. Make time for friends Keep stress in check Have a laugh Eat a brain-boosting diet Identify and treat health problems Take practical steps to support learning and memory like Pay attention Involve as many senses as possible Relate information to what you already know For more complex material, focus on understanding basic ideas Concentration 10 ways to increase your concentration Understand what concentration is: “Concentration is taking your mind off many things and putting it on one thing at a time.” Decide what you want to concentrate on. In many ways, you become what you focus on — that is, you take on some of its characteristics. Have you ever noticed how couples who have been married for many years start to look like each other, or how people often come to resemble their pets, their cars, their hobbies, or their work projects? Watch other people concentrating. Go see a good action movie. In the middle of it, look around at the people in the theater. What are they doing? They are absolutely still, eyes barely blinking, and their breath is slower. It would take a really major distraction to break their attention stream. These physical signs may give you a hint about ways to increase your own concentration abilities. Avoid constant sensory input.Multi-tasking (trying to do more than one thing at a time), loud noises, and visual stimulation (such as from a T.V.) make concentration much more difficult, and being around them or doing them too much can put you into a habit of non-attention which can be hard to break. Make it a point to put your full concentration on whatever you are doing. Don’t let anything distract you. It really helps to be in a quiet place, but you can learn to block out noise if necessary. Stay calm. Deep concentration is a matter of increasing or directing your life-force or conscious, cosmic energy. The more of this kind of energy you have, the better. Scattered energy doesn’t help. It must be calm, focused energy. Learn to be calmly concentrated and be concentratedly calm. Learn techniques to increase and control your energy. One such technique is Paramhansa Yogananda’s energization energies. Controlling your energy is an important first step toward the ability to concentrate deeply. Take breaks. Go outside and breathe deeply or take a brisk walk. Make yourself do this often and you’ll be able to return to your task recharged and ready to focus more creatively. Learn to meditate. Meditation is the most powerful of all concentration enhancement techniques. Learn a few simple meditation techniques and practice them at least five minutes daily. While meditating, watch your breath — don’t control it in any way, just observe. This teaches you to focus your mind on one thing at a time. As you observe your breath, it will slow down, along with your mind (this is scientifically well-documented), and you move into a dynamic, peaceful (but not sleepy) state of being. Your mind will become recharged and creatively receptive. I hope these things will definitely help you to improve your memory and concentration. ALL THE BEST

Rise uр аnd don’t regret Whеn wе fail, wе might bе tempted tо think thаt wе hаvе wasted оur timе аnd thuѕ regret it. But that’s ѕhоuld nоt bе thе case. Thе fact thаt уоu hаvе dоnе ѕоmеthing iѕ muсh bеttеr thаn dоing nothing. Mаnу people whо despise persons whо fail nеvеr dо аnуthing themselves. Rise uр аnd move on. Thе regret lies nоt in doing, but in nоt doing. 2. Understand thаt failure Failure iѕ thеrе nоt withоut a reason. It’s thеrе tо givе уоu thе wisdom уоu nееd tо succeed. Eасh failure уоu encounter increases уоur wisdom аnd brings уоu оnе step closer tо success. If уоu hаvе thiѕ mindset, уоu will ѕее failure differently. Yоu will ѕее еасh failure аѕ аn opportunity tо learn. 3. Learn аѕ muсh аѕ роѕѕiblе frоm thе failure Whilе failure brings уоu wisdom, hоw muсh wisdom уоu will gеt depends еntirеlу оn уоur ability tо harvest it. Sо don’t waste thе opportunity tо learn; harvest wisdom аѕ muсh аѕ роѕѕiblе frоm thе failure. If уоu fail tо dо this, уоu mау waste a lot оf timе bу repeating thе ѕаmе mistakes in thе future. 4. Don’t givе up Thе thought оf giving uр iѕ tempting, еѕресiаllу whеn wе hаvе failed оvеr аnd оvеr again. But whо knоwѕ thаt mауbе уоu аrе оnlу оnе step аwау frоm success? Will уоu waste thе lоng journey уоu hаvе passed whеn уоu аrе аlrеаdу ѕо close tо уоur destination? Sо hold оn tight аnd don’t givе up. 5. Maintain уоur enthusiasm Nоt оnlу уоu ѕhоuld kеер оn trying, уоu ѕhоuld аlѕо dо it with thе ѕаmе level оf enthusiasm аѕ whеn уоu firѕt began. Othеrwiѕе уоur subsequent effort will hаvе lеѕѕ аnd lеѕѕ power. 6. Kеер уоur confidence in уоurѕеlf Kеер уоur confidence in уоurѕеlf dеѕрitе thе failure. Of course, уоu nееd tо put a lot оf effort аnd learn аѕ muсh аѕ роѕѕiblе frоm thе failure, but уоu hаvе thе ability tо make уоur dream соmе true. Mаnу people whо achieve great undertakings hаvе nо ѕресiаl trait. Thеу аrе juѕt ordinary people with extraordinary attitude. Let’s bе оnе оf them. Your fears, attitudes, and expectations have likely been your companions for a long time so it will take some effort to change them. The good news is that you have the ability to control your thoughts and beat depression. Stop comparing yourself - to others and to your successful best - You may have been thinner, famous, younger, and better at everything you believe in at some point in life. Life maybe unfair in every way; but remember that the best is yet to come and believe in that. Time changes everything for everyone, so let others be happy today, you will get your chance tomorrow. Ignore the haters, forgive their arrogance and let jealousy not surround your judgement. Change the measure of success - What is success today; a great job, a happy committed life, stable investments? Relax and concentrate on what you have today. Surely there are others who yearn for what you have, even if it seems little. The fact that you are on Quora, you haven't faced the worst yet! Count your blessings and begin your new journey from there. Don't get compelled to achieve what others term as success. None of us know why we live; we may be preparing for the wrong tests for all you know. Define success on your own terms and continue working on what you want; not what others expect from you. Action: What is the least you must do to move forward- do it now! Don't contemplate on whether its the right thing to do. Keep taking baby steps in the direction you wish to move in and rejoice every ounce of success. The void: - A sense of "nothing is worth anything" is bound to cross everyone's mind at some or the other stage. If you don't feel the need to continue for yourself, start living for others. Bring happiness to those craving for basic necessities. You will find a new reason to continue your quest. Find a new hobby. Learning something new and meeting those who share your passion helps you connect better and may also create new opportunities for you. Continue learning something, even if it feels totally unrelated to what you want to do. Steve Jobs & calligraphy is a case in point. It's not your fault: Remember that whatever you are going through, might seem like a result of bad choices; but the situation and consequences of your decisions is not because of you. There is a universal energy that is constantly changing as you read this and the tide may change directions tomorrow for all you know. Acknowledge the power of unknown and change your attitude towards failure. Mock it, beat it but never forget to get up if you burn down. It's only a matter of time. Your failure could be a catalyst for a major change elsewhere. Celebrate them as you are going to value your success that much more! Don't stop loving: Spread your love to plants, animals, humankind, God. Anything and you can feel it kill the negative energy within. Pay it forward: Help others, even when you may be the one that requires it the most. Don't expect anything from life, take every breath as a bonus.

There are many factors that could be affecting your over all depression and feeling of emptiness. A few of them are: Psychological stress - you might be undergoing stress about a lot of things - work, relationships, family - all these can get you depressed. How you view yourself - you might be thinking that you are a failure, or that you have not achieved anything worthwhile Broken relationships - maybe there is someone in your life that you miss, a parent or sibling, or even a very close friend, and they have left you too soon. Some people feel they have lost a part of themselves when they lose someone. Conflict - do you feel like you want to be someone else but can’t? To do something else but are pressured to stay at your current state? These can make your frustrated and depressed. Solutions: Take a break from your daily routine, and do something that could make you happy, like helping at a community center, playing with a child, or going to a nice quiet place like the beach. Talk to a friend who can understand your situation - it helps that the friend is not going to be judgemental, but it would be okay if that friend is just there to listen. Mend your heart by moving on - accept the loss and let them be part of you, not someone you have lost but someone who lives through you. Do something outrageous and daring - take a roadtrip, join a nature trek, anything that you can do that helps break the shell. Most of all, get professional help if you can afford it. We may suggest things, but we are not experts.

Hello Lybrate User. Hey I can suggest you to go for some natural ways. Ideally you want to start practicing at least 3 of these skills daily: ■ Recognize a positive event each day. ■ Savor that event and log it in a journal or tell someone about it. ■ Start a daily gratitude journal. ■ List a personal strength and note how you used it. ■ Set an attainable goal and note your progress. ■ Report a relatively minor stress and list ways to reappraise the event positively. ■ Recognize and practice small acts of kindness daily. ■ Practice mindfulness, focusing on the here and now rather than the past or future. Finally, beyond developing a positive mindset, deep-relaxation breathing is arguably the fastest and most powerful ways to reduce stress and anxiety. If you would ask me, what stress is, then it is everything that because of which we start feeling uncomfortable. If something is too cold, too cold, or it is in large quantity, then it gets uncomfortable and stressful for us. With the help of following seven stress management methods, you will be able to increase your stamina, and that will provide you a strong body and mind which helps you reduce your stress and eliminate its negative effects. 1. Healthy Nutrition As wise people always said, you become what you eat. If you are eating a lot of junk food such as soda, burgers, pizza, fries and similar other stuff on a daily basis, then you might have nutrition deprivation inside your body. You must understand that a human body needs a balance of calories and nutrients. Fast food contains a lot of calories but a small amount of vitamins and minerals that are necessary for your health. At the other hand consuming healthy food gives you essential nutrients and energy that makes you productive all the time. Also, it keeps your body healthy which reduce your stress level in a great way. 2. Regular Sports In case, stress is disturbing you on a consistent manner, then you should think about changing your daily activity. In your daily routine, you should include some sports or physical activity. It doesn’t matter what kind of sports activity you are choosing, as long as you are doing some physical activity you are good to go. When we do physical activity, our endocrine gland produces hormones that are responsible for the reduction of stress. Other than this, your activeness in sports also makes you forget your daily problems for some time which is another great stress relief benefit that you get with sports activity. 3. Meditation Keeping your emotions in your control is one of the most important aspects for stress reduction, and meditation is the best way to do that. With the help of meditation, you can keep your mind calm in different kind of life problems or situations. This simple habit can leave propounding effects on your life that you might not get even after quitting alcohol or smoking. Meditation can help you explore your hidden potential, and you will also be able to have answers for many questions of life. You will realize what your desires are, you will star listening to yourself and you will be able to utilize your knowledge strongly. And if you will include meditation with some simple breathing techniques, then you will get an even more amazing result in stress management and stress reduction. You get this result because breathing techniques with meditation give more oxygen to your body, regulate your blood pressure and gives a calming effect to your mind. Try all these natural ways and if it doesn't work then consult any Psychologist of your near by area, Thank You.
