Stress - Know How Damaging It Can Be!

Stress -  Know How Damaging It Can Be!

Stress in the body is a way of responding to threats. These threats need not be physical, but could be in the form of financial trouble, work pressure, relationship difficulties, major life events etc. When we are put under pressure our body releases hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol that makes the heart beat faster, tightens muscles, increases blood pressure and makes the senses alert. 

This is our body’s way of protecting us. However, the body cannot distinguish between life threatening events and the mere pressure of giving a presentation. Experiencing this fight or flight response on a recurring basis can lead to an impaired digestive system, lowered immunity, increased blood pressure and hence risk of strokes and heart attacks and can make you age faster. 

Stress cannot always be avoided but it can be dealt with effectively so as to not allow it to harm your health. For this it is important to first recognise the symptoms of stress. Stress symptoms can be categorized as cognitive, emotional, physical and behavioural symptoms. 

Cognitive Symptoms: 

  1. Memory loss 
  2. Shortened attention span 
  3. Negativity 
  4. Anxiousness Emotional 


  1. Depression 
  2. Moodiness 
  3. Anger 
  4. Feeling of isolation and loneliness 

Physical Symptoms: 

  1. Rapid heartbeat 
  2. Lowered libido 
  3. Frequent flu or stomach upsets 
  4. Nausea and dizziness 

Behavioral Symptoms: 

  1. Loss of appetite 
  2. Insomnia or sleeping excessively 
  3. Social withdrawal 
  4. Excessive smoking, drinking or use of other intoxicants 

The amount of stress each person can Tolerate before it begins to affect their body varies. While some people thrive under pressure, others are paralysed by it. Some ways you can increase your stress tolerance levels are: 

Become emotionally aware 
For some people, stress is a normal way of life and they do not realize when they’re putting their body under too much pressure. Being aware of how you feel physically and emotionally can help you realize when you are stressed out. Having the emotional awareness of what it takes to calm down your stressed nerves also helps you bounce back from a stressful situation. 

Build a strong Social Network 
People who have a close and strong network of friends and loved ones who they can share their thoughts and experiences with can tolerate more stress than those who are socially withdrawn and have fewer opportunities for social engagements. 

Get some form of regular physical activity 
Regular exercise benefits both your physical and mental health. Exercising calms your nerves and lowers the production of stress hormones in the system. It also gives you time to focus on yourself and distracts you from other worries and tensions. 

Eat the right food 
Processed foods such as refined carbs or sugary snacks can worsen stress by causing fluctuations in your blood sugar levels. Instead, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables along with proteins and healthy fats. Good sleep at night!

Attachment Disorder - 8 Risks Associated With It

Attachment Disorder - 8 Risks Associated With It

While most children share a strong bond with their parents, especially the mother, some infants are unable to establish lasting relationships with their parents or caregivers. This is known as attachment disorder. It is a rare yet serious condition as it affects the child’s relationships at a later stage and also triggers delinquent behavior. Children, who have been abandoned, orphaned or are victims of abuse are the most vulnerable to this condition.

What causes attachment disorder?
The exact cause for attachment disorder is not yet understood. However, researchers have put together a number of viable hypotheses for this. One such hypothesis suggests that when needs of a child are ignored or when he begins to feel unwanted, the child begins to expect hostility, negativity and rejection. This is a learnt response and the child begins to feel that his needs are unwanted. With time, these responses make the child untrusting and he withdraws into himself to avoid social contact. This affects the development in the brain and causes attachment problems that affect the child’s personality and future relationships.

Risks associated with it
Some children are at a higher risk of attachment disorder than others. This includes

  1. Children living in orphanages or other such institutes
  2. Children whose caregivers are changed frequently
  3. Children who have had prolonged hospitalization
  4. Neglected children
  5. Children who have suffered from physical, sexual or verbal abuse
  6. Children living in extreme poverty
  7. Children born to parents with mental conditions or anger management problems
  8. Children born to a mother suffering from post partum depression

There are two types of attachment disorders; inhibited and disinhibited.

  1. Inhibited attachment disorder: Children suffering from inhibited attachment disorder are likely to be:
    • Detached
    • Withdrawn
    • Unresponsive to comforting ie. they shun all types of relationships and generally do not get along with their peers or caregivers.
  2. Disinhibited attachment disorder: On the other hand, children suffering from disinhibited attachment are likely to:
    • Seek attention
    • Display inappropriate behavior
    • Frequently break social boundaries
    • Be inappropriately familial and attached to selective figures.

Additionally, children suffering from either type of attachment disorder are manipulative, destructive, moody and lack compassion and remorse.
Effects of attachment disorder
If not managed properly in its early stages, this disorder can continue into adulthood. This leads to:

  1. Relationship problems with peers, friends and family members
  2. Low self esteem
  3. Depression
  4. Anger management
  5. Academic problems
  6. Unemployment
  7. They are also at a high risk for drug abuse and alcohol addiction 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

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!

Are You Being Subjected To Physical And/Or Sexual Abuse By Your Spouse?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Are You Being Subjected To Physical And/Or Sexual Abuse By Your Spouse?

Even in today's world of technological advancement and modern thoughts, there are many instances of abusive relationships behind closed doors. Physical assault is not the only method of domestic violence or abuse. There are normally three ways your spouse may be abusing you-

  1. Physical abuse is when your spouse takes up to beating. It is not just beating, but there can be other ways of physical abuse that may hurt you physically somehow. 
  2. Sexual abuse is when you are forced by your spouse for unwanted sex, that amounts to marital rape. Even with consensual sex, there may be certain activities during sex that you do not want to engage in. 
  3. Emotional Abuse is another form of abuse, where your spouse does not use physical control, but controls you mentally or emotionally. In all of the above cases, just tolerating the abuses without saying anything against it, may lead to serious problems in future. 

Symptoms of Being Abused 

There can be many times when you are unable to judge whether you are being abused by your spouse. In this case, there are a few symptoms that you can match up to check whether you are a victim of spousal abuse: 

  • You are afraid of your spouse, 
  • You do not want to anger your spouse, 
  • Lack of confidence that may make you feel that you deserve to be punished, 
  • You start feeling that you are either crazy, or too helpless. 

Now you can also judge whether your partner is abusive, by noticing these symptoms: 

  • Your partner humiliates you and criticizes you all the time, 
  • Your partner treats you badly in front of friends and family, 
  • Ignores your accomplishments or emotions and blames you for everything, 
  • Treats you as an object for sex, 
  • Controls your life in all aspects. 

Getting Rescued From the Situation 

Abuse can be for both the husband and wife. But in most cases, partners do not come out in the open and talk about it. Women think they can manage and adjust to keep the marriage going, while men think it is too shameful to admit that they are being abused by their wives. But just staying quiet and waiting for a solution is not the best solution. If you want to get out of the situation, trying these options can help. 

  • Speaking to your spouse since the very first time when you notice such abuse, 
  • Staying strong and confident always, 
  • Talking to a friend or a family member about the abuse, 
  • Calling up the police for help and filing up a case of domestic violence against the spouse, 
  • Taking up some hard decisions, such as separation from the spouse. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Stress and strain is not a problem and its the part of the life and it affects your life as per your attitude. When there is a road vehicle traffic is common and the need is how to drive your vehicle. Like wise in life problems are common with stress and strain and you need to accept it and never oppose it with so called positive. Positve and negative is part of life without these 2 parts like coin there is no life. Accept everything and meditate daily for 30 minutes. Acceptance is the way. Acceptance of dichotomy of life is the only way.
