Don't loose your heart to Stress,,, Wellness series in Metro PLus

MBBS, DTCD, MD, FISDA, Fellow Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleepmedicine
Pulmonologist, Delhi
A certain intensity of stress is must for productivity but when it goes on for months it affects your health. It may seem that there’s nothing you can do about stress. There is always stress to change or challenge. But you learn to manage by practising healthy ways. In fact, the simple realisation that you’re in control of your life is the foundation of stress management. Managing stress is all about taking charge of your thoughts, emotions, schedule, and the way you deal your situations.

The first step in managing stress is recognising it in your life. Everyone feels stress in a different way. You may get angry or irritable, lose sleep, or have headaches or stomach. You should learn your own body and identify your symptoms and identify the situations that cause you stress. These are called stressors. Your stressors could be family, work, relationships, money or health problems. Once you understand where your stress is coming from, you can come up with ways to deal with your stressors.

You feel stressed, you may fall back on unhealthy behaviours to help you relax. These may include eating too much, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol or using drugs, sleeping too much or not sleeping enough. These behaviours may help you feel better at first, but they may hurt you more than they help.

Avoid stressful situations. When you can, remove yourself from the source of stress. Change your outlook. Try to develop a more positive attitude towards challenges. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. For example, rather than thinking, “Why does everything always go wrong?” change this thought to, “I can find a way to get through this.” Keep stress from making you sick by learning healthy ways .The first step in managing stress is recognising it in your life. Everyone feels stress in a different way. What are your signs of stress? Once you know the signals, recognize the things you can’t change. For example, you have a spastic child which can’t change. But you should have courage to handle the situation in much more positive way that’s is the wisdom of life. Nurture positivity. Positive people are assertive, confidant, happy and humane and they have right emotional wellness. The negative people have low self esteem, are fearful, unhappy and have poor emotional wellness. These are the people who suffer from stress the most. They are fearful, stressful and judgemental. Stress gives anxiety. Anxiety gives restlessness, depression and poor coping mechanism.

A good stress control is must for optimum wellness. First and foremost one should practice talking to oneself on daily basis for at least 10 minutes. This will help to keep a balance between expressive and repressive emotions. Do a daily auto laboratory check, identify strength, overcome weakness by playing strength over weakness. A daily auto mind body check will control anger, frustration, guilt and fear.

Once you are done with your analysis, practise zero feeling though 360 degree wellness practice. This involves physical, mental, emotional, environmental, social and spiritual wellness practices. Stress management needs a daily programme and it should be a habit. Daily systematic practice helps you start your day from zero.

Start a stress diary. A stress diary can help you identify the regular stressors in your life and the way you deal with them. Each time you feel stressed, keep track of it in your journal. As you keep a daily log, you will begin to see patterns and common themes.

Write down:

What caused your stress (make a guess if you’re unsure). How you felt, both physically and emotionally. How you acted in response. What you did to make yourself feel better.

Dealing with Stressful Situations: The Four A’s

A. Change the situation: Avoid the stressor or alter the stressor

B. Change your reaction: Adapt to the stressor or accept the stressor

Practice following steps to overcome stress

Talk to yourself and say I will, I must and I can do
Think of your strengths and weaknesses and now toss your mind
Set your priorities
Delegate responsibilities
Do a proper time management
See the bigger picture, see failure as an event not as failure. Learn from mistakes
Love and pamper yourself
Focus on fitness, do regular brisk activity. Walking, swimming, tread mill, gardening, sweat adequately. Sweat releases feel good hormone called endorphins. Endorphins improve wellness.
Rest and relax. Breathing techniques help relaxation. Annapani sati, Buddhist meditation, do bramhari or do Om chanting . These practices create resonance in your higher mind and helps release of feel good hormones
Breathing exercises mainly abdominal breathing, Kapalbhati increases your parasympathetic activity and counters your sympathetic activity. Do breathing in exercises like Anulom Vilom and do sequential eye, cervical, spinal and finger a toe exercises. Rest in sharvangasana
Eat right. Eat a diet rich in complex carbohydrates with low glycemic index, high protein, plenty of fruits and vegetables. Drink ten glasses of water. Have a sumptuous break fast, take small frequent meals.
Do an auto cognitive behaviour analysis and remove negative thoughts.
Practise visual imagery, feel good by running through your nostalgic photo album
Talk to people, develop dialogue and seek help.
Play games, games relax and make you positive
Develop a hobby
Listen to music
Follow good sleep hygiene, stick to one time to bed, take bath before sleep
Laughing helps
If your can’t manage stress on your own, consider seeing a therapist or counsellor.

Dear lybrateuser, - It is your age where you should concentrate on your studies as it is a matter of your future & career - keep a fixed time for your phone use like an hour in the morning & one in the evening or whichever time you think is suitable after a session of study, it will be as a break between studies - then close it & keep it away from your sight or in a another room to avoid the urge to seek it - it is your own will power & determination will can help you out of this .

I am noticing that I am suffering hyper tension. Is there any specific reason for this.
Hello, there are many cause for hypertension. In today's era, most common cause for hypertension in young and middle aged person is stress, tension or anxiety. Other cause are like, smoking being overweight or obese lack of physical activity too much salt in the diet too much alcohol consumption (more than 1 to 2 drinks per day) stress older age genetics family history of high blood pressure chronic kidney disease adrenal and thyroid disorders sleep apnea your age is 32years, so most probably it is due to some stress.

Sir I am a alcoholic person but I decided that if I quit it today or start martial arts from tomorrow then tell me it is my right choice or not to start it from tomorrow?

Hi lybrate-user! I appreciate your decision of quitting alcohol. Actually speaking you can take one week time to make your body fit like intake of lots of fruits and vegetables and then join martial arts, which would actually help you to become more stronger and healthier and would help you to continue martial arts training for you. If you are interested to contact me for further details regarding the same or any kind of problem you can either chat or call me. Take care.

I always try to get rid from my stress but seeing the ppl in difficulties directly influences myself to get attached to their helping concern. I am even trying to ignore but still my interior roars up and let's not take them as such. So how can I minimise my stress?

It's good to help others. However an inability to stop yourself from going over the shelf shows your inner compulsions to help people so as to minimise your stress and anxiety, rather than just helping people. Learn the" relaxation response" so as to deal with anxiety whenever you face it. Try some relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation or deep breathing exercises. Eat healthy and have a refreshing sleep daily. In case you still find difficult to deal with the stress consult a psychiatrist.

What is grasping power? Somebody's telling me there's no grasping power to u. Small of thinks I can get a tension so which doctors I want to consult it's please suggest a good psychologist.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
It makes sense that the word grasp means understanding a concept since you are "getting a hold of an idea" just as you would grasp something tangible to hold. Grasp is good for when you're talking about comprehending the scale of something, or the full picture of a multi-faceted problem or idea. You can consult me if yu wnat .Grasping power depends upon practice and concentration. If you keep a focused mind only on one thing that you would like to achieve then your grasping power pertaining to that area will definitely increase. Try noting down the things you are unable to grasp easily and recall them every night you sleep and check till how many days you are able to recall them with ease. After some time you get habituated to this but this time you don't need to note them down but you'll be grasping them instantly. The other way is make sure you try to memorize things you need using key words. Once that key word strikes your mind, you'll be able to get the entire scenario. Thinking speed can be improved by brain storming a variety of ideas pertaining to that area which you are trying to think. So once you try to inculcate these habits you can improve them gradually. Grasping and thinking speed development needs a rigorous practice.

I am not able to maintain constant interest in a single work. Please help. Memory related to theory is very poor. How to improve my learning ability?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
No matter what your age, throughout your life you will be learning. Your formal education ends with high school, but for many the learning never ends. You may attend a university, trade school, night school, community college or adult school. You may enhance your knowledge via business seminars, lectures, books, e-courses, and whatever else shows up in our information society. So wouldn?t it be helpful to have some good study habits and some tools to increase your ability to learn? Although you may not be studying information to get good grades, retention of what you are learning can help your career, your parenting skills, your business, your relationships, your hobbies, and so much more. So it makes sense to acquire good learning skills sooner than later. Skills such as speed reading and good comprehension are useful for all the great information you want to take in. Here are some more secrets for improving your ability to learn. Most apply to classes, but you can adapt them to any learning situation. 1. Be Prepared. If you?re taking a class online or at a school, study the curriculum in advance so you know what to expect. Engage in necessary prep work like downloading software, getting a workbook, or setting aside the dates for the course. 2. Get and Stay Organized. If you?re a computer note taker, make sure you set up a file folder system that will enable you to find what you need when you need it. Learning good computer organizational skills will save you a lot of time and headaches. If you take notes by hand, keep them in a labeled binder so you can review them later. Keep any other course papers in the binder as well. 3. Be On Time. If you?re taking a teleclass (this is a class conducted via telephone), call in five minutes early. Clear your desk, and have your pen and pad or a new computer file open. For live classes, show up a few minutes ahead of schedule. When you?re on time, you will have your full attention focused on the class, and not on ?catching up? with yourself and what you may have missed. 4. Take Good Notes. If you?re unable to listen and write at the same time, just listen and then write notes after the class is over. If it?s recorded, you can review the class and take notes then. You can also ask the teacher for his/her outline, summary, or notes. Review your last class notes before your next class. 5. Establish Your Learning Style. Which is your best and preferred learning style: visual (reading), auditory (listening) or kinesthetic (doing)? When you know your learning style, take classes that incorporate that style. For example, audio learners keep CDs in their car to turn traffic jams into productive time. Book learners may keep a notebook handy to take notes and read as they exercise on the stepper machine or treadmill. When you study, do you need silence or do you enjoy having music playing in the background? Knowing how you learn best improves your effectiveness. 6. Ask Questions. If you?re taking a course online or in a school, make sure to jot down questions as they come up and ask them when you have a chance. I?ve always believed there are no dumb or silly questions. If you need clarification, you won?t continue learning until you have your questions answered. Most instructors see questions as a sign of an alert, intelligent mind. 7. Complete All Assignments. Stay current with your assignments and complete each one. If you?re reading a self-help book, do all the exercises. If you miss a class, find a way to get the assignments?from another student or the teacher. Online classes are often recorded, so make sure to listen to the recording if you can?t make a class. With information coming at us from so many directions and in so many formats, it?s difficult to sort out what?s important. It?s even more difficult to retain data with so much to store in our brains. Ultimately we have to be more selective in what we choose to learn, and we need in order to develop effective learning habits. Having good study habits can help.

I have table work in office for a long time. Over a period of time I have been addicted in chewing tobacco. However I want to get rid of that. Please give me feasible solution.

STOP SMOKING 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/ weed, 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.

Hi lybrate-user, mental diseases as you term it is (are of various types from mild to severe} how you feel, behave or perceive things or beings around you, caused due to emotional imbalance due to incidental, emotional, or changes internally. The problem you have is due to emotional distress caused by some incident, which you have not mentioned. Depressive individuals do behave abnormally to others, it happens but as days go on they become normal. It is like a season that comes and then goes, you have got to give some time for your depression to get healed naturally and through other ways may be diverting your mind or concentrating on something else which you are more interested like your good habits like playing, music, game or any other hobby should be more addictive to these, the only way to come out from depression. I suggest you to become more occupied in any one of your good hobbies, eat what you like the most, sleep well and if you can attend mind relaxation yoga classes. Definitely you can come out of depression and become more jovial. Try to follow step by step slowly and then let me know or call if in case you have any trouble or doubts regarding the same. Best wishes psy. Msv.
