7 Best Ways To Control Anger!

7 Best Ways To Control Anger!

Do you get angry easily? Do you fume when something goes against your wish? Does your blood pressure rocket when someone tells you something that you don't like? Anger is a normal emotion of human psychology, but it is equally important to keep your anger under control. Just like any other emotion, anger too varies from person to person, and the circumstances. Uncontrolled anger can lead to mental and physical stress. It also causes stress on relationships and damages your health. Therefore, it is important to practice anger management exercises to control such extremes of emotions.

Here are some of the anger management tips that can help you control your anger:

  1. Think before you speak: We often say something out of anger and then regret it later. This is a common condition that has been faced by almost everyone at some point of time. Do not say things abruptly without thinking. Always take your time and think over what you are about to say.
  2. Express your anger once you are calm: Do not say things at the heat of the moment. Once you calm down, express your views on things that are bothering you. This will help you express better without hurting anyone.
  3. Exercise: Regular exercise is one of the best tools to reduce stress. Light meditative exercises performed on a regular basis such as a morning jog or deep breathing can control your anger to a great extent.
  4. Identify the specific cause: Instead of being grumpy about things that make you angry, try to find out the root cause of the issue and eliminate it, so that you don't have to face it again. Remind yourself that anger won't solve the problem and can only make situations worse.
  5. Hold no grudge: Holding on to the negative feelings can only have a negative impact on your own health. Learn to forgive others. Forgiving not only keeps the relationship healthy, but also keeps you away from stress and negative emotions.
  6. Practice relaxation tactics: When your temper reaches its height, put your relaxation tactics in action. A few tactics like deep breathing or repeating words to yourself like "Take it easy" or "Calm down" can actually calm you down during critical situations.
  7. Take a timeout: Take short breaks during stressful times of your day. This helps to release some of your stress and calm you down. You may also listen to music, take a light snack or do something that you like, to spend some time away from stressful conditions of your daily routine. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Depression - Don't Let It Suck Your Life!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Depression - Don't Let It Suck Your Life!

Recently most of us were shaken by the death of the well-known television actress, Pratyusha Banerjee. Her sudden death has brought to light the very common yet under-addressed problem - Depression -  that a number of youths are living with.

Most mental and emotional health issues are inconspicuous in nature and, therefore, cause more harm than they otherwise should, most people still live with a number of symptoms of depression without even realizing it or do little to address it. When the depressive symptoms last for more than 2 weeks and affect the individual's personal, social or occupational life, it is known as clinical depression or major depression. There is often a delay in opting for the treatment because of the social taboo associated with depression.

Although cases of depression can vary from an individual to the other, there are signs that one can look out for, to identify a depressed person:

  1. Low mood most of the time of day along with frequent crying spells
  2. Feeling of unworthiness and low self-respect are very common in a depressed person. Due to these feelings, the affected person may become very critical and disapproving about himself or herself.
  3. Lack of enjoyment and loss of interest in a depressed person makes them no longer derive pleasure from things that once gave him or her happiness.
  4. Exhaustion and insomnia are signs that one should look out for in a depressed individual. These are usually due to changes in sleep patterns, from sleeping a lot because of feelings of constant fatigue or due to instances of wakefulness.
  5. From indulging in comfort eating to losing the will to eat, predominantly loss of appetite characterizes a depressed person.
  6. Difficulty in recalling details and tendency to over generalize as also problem-solving issues can point to the presence of depression
  7. Unexplained bodily pains and aches are another characteristics of the condition.  

What are the different types of depression?

Regarding the different forms of this mental health issue, it comes in several forms along with their distinct symptoms, effects, and causes. These are:

  1. Major depression
  2. Dysthymia
  3. Recurrent depressive disorder
  4. Seasonal affective disorder
  5. Bipolar disorder

How can it affect your life?

More than 90% people who commit suicide suffer from some form of psychiatric illness and depression is the most common reason. The despair that usually accompanies depression makes the thought of taking one's life as the only means available to escape the pain. In addition to suicidal thoughts, it can also affect one's functioning in day to day life if help is not sought in time.

Depression is as curable as any other illness. Both medical management and psychotherapy are helpful in treatment. Type of treatment depends on patient's condition, the severity of illness as well as availability. 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. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Nidaanparivarjan means avoid the cause. You may avoid ac rooms. However pl boil sonth, kali mirch, tulsi, and small peepal in water and drink one cup thrice a day or make tea of it. Amritarishta liquid 20 ml + water tds for two week will not only cure fever but enhance appetite, blood (hb) level and detoxify the blood.

A typically depressed person will have following symptoms: 1. Loss of interest in daily routine activities. 2. Too much sleep or not able to sleep, not eating. 3 not bothered about personal hygiene 4. Not talking to anyone, not expressing feelings. 5. Avoid interaction with others. 6. Keep crying on and off 7. No facial expression, emotional numbness 8. Talking about worthlessness, expressing wish to commit suicide. 9 feeling totally hopeless, not able to enjoy life. If you identify anyone with above mentioned symptoms, please try to talk to that student, listen to him with empathy. Ask his friends to be with him/her, if the student is talking about suicide. Please make them aware that since they are coming from different place and background, they will be different. But they need not be ashamed of it. If they wish they can learn some etiquettes, dialect etc which is more acceptable in urban areas. They need to give themselves some time to come at par with their urban counterparts. Please help them to focus on their strengths by asking them to write if down on a paper and ask them to read it every day. Also help them to learn spoken english, if possible train them for public speaking etc. It will boost their self confidence. I am very happy to see your commitment towards your students. Wish you good luck.

Repeated washing of clothes and hands could be due to ocd. She could be going through some guilt too. Of course, divorce is a painful situationand may make a person feel helpless. She does require emotional support from people around her. Do consult a psychiatrist about her washing engagement. With medication and counselling, she will get alot of relief and help.

Hello lybrate-user ji the problem of your cough originating from the chest is mainly related to your habit of smoking the condition in medical language is called as smokers lungs and it is sometimes troublesome and to producing such symptoms and discomfort it is very easy to say that you would like to leave the habit of smoking and alcohol but it needs lot of courage and commitment with self control. There would be many occasions which will tempt you for the alcohol or smoking to have but it is very important that you stay away with this with strong will power and there is no as such a proven therapy better than your own willpower and self control which will take you away from this habit.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

This is not a mental disease but it does seem to cripple you. I am afraid that you may be suffering from the rejection issue wherein you feel unwanted and also abandoned, and suffer separation anxiety. This can complicate your whole life. There must have been some incident in your early childhood that may have provoked this feeling: be it true or not. It is however possible to resolve this by learning to accept yourself and love yourself. The rejection issue will make you feel like you do not belong, although externally there may be all the signs that they do love you. It is your perception based on some incident in childhood that is influencing this feeling. The perception is more important than the actual event. You must do all kinds of loving things for yourself. That includes respecting your life, health and well being. Do not frequent people or places or situations where you are not wanted. You must exercise daily, eat a good diet and sleep well. Your identity is also something to work on. In the meantime, do a personality development course; attend workshops and conferences and talks to further your growth. The more educated you become, the more confidence you will develop. Generally meet more people and gradually learn to dispel all fear around them: they are also sometimes equally afraid of others!
