Stress is GOOD...Its true!!!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Stress is GOOD...Its true!!!
When we are worried or overly stressed we can’t do our best. We need to be proactive and live life with ease and joy. Our perceptions, attitudes, choices and responses should be within our control.

There is a circle of control within which you are comfortable. For example if you are afraid of speaking in public, you may shy away from such an activity or you may on the other hand, choose to focus on what is under your control by working hard on practicing that speech with friends, family and supportive people in order to overcome your fear.

When issues outside the circle of our control begin to take prominence they are likely to cause hurt and disturbance. There are many ways to feel strong so that you are not always caught off-guard or unprepared for situations.



Not all stress is bad

We sometimes hear people say ‘I work better under pressure’ or ‘I thrive on competition’. There are others who endlessly crib about work pressure, increasing population, mounting prices, water shortage, etc. What we need is a balance. We need to feel stretched, but not so far that we might snap. Feeling bad or worrying about something does not fix the problem but adds to your feeling of helplessness. Being stressed is by itself, usually a cause for further stress.

The attitude of the person and the way they approach the situation makes all the difference. One person’s challenge may well be another’s way of life



Some stress is normal and even useful

A certain amount of stress is essential for normal health. Some stress is definitely required to stimulate us to do day-to-day tasks. Some levels of stress are beneficial for higher productivity and efficiency. A student may be nervous about studying for a competitive exam, but this does not automatically mean that it will cause him/her to perform poorly. The child may just become more conscientious with revision

Naturopathic Treatment For Tension And Stress

MD
Yoga & Naturopathy Specialist, Delhi
Naturopathic Treatment For Tension And Stress

In this fast-moving world, there is no room for self. Growth of IT firms and other long-hour demanding work has led to compromises in your lifestyle - long hours in front of computer, sleeplessness, late-night sleeping, quick bites, leaving us with emotions of anger, anxiety, stress and so on. This is a major reason why people today are hypertensive.

Diseases due to HypertensionTension and stress are the building blocks of numerous serious ailments like cardiovascular diseases, asthma, spondylitis (back pain) and grey hair. You may also suffer from gastritis leading to ulcer.

Natural ways to treat Hypertension : Ideally, tension and stress are not diseases. If you can control these, you can control the conditions that take root because of them. Naturopathic (or alternative medicine) treatments for tension and stress are most ideal.

Here are some natural ways to treat hypertension.

  • Sleep well: An adult should sleep for a minimum of 7-8 hours daily. Your body cells rejuvenate while you are in a relaxed state. Many jobs demand late-night work or night shift work. However, your body is meant to sleep early at night. Instead of working late night, you can start your work early.
  • Eat right: Stress leads to elevated levels of sugar in your body. Try to avoid sugary content food. Your body needs balanced diet of proteins, carbohydrates, less of fats, and more of vitamins and minerals. For proteins, eat fish, eggs or white meat. For vegetarians, you can have soy, cereals and protein drinks. Diet must include milk products like yoghurt, milk, vegetables rich in minerals and vitamins and roughage (salads).
  • Destressing exercises: Nowadays, most of the jobs demand sitting for long hours. Physical activity is one of the ways to de-stress your body. A 45-minute walk would also help. Alternatively, yoga or tai-chi type marital art helps to de-stress. Breathing techniques involved in meditation also play a vital role.
  • Anger management: Develop patience. That would automatically lead to anger management at your workplace as well as at home. Be a good listener. Laughter therapy also helps as it releases many happy hormones in the body.
  • Supplement for stress: This has to be the last tip when you do not perform the first four. Multivitamins containing vitamin B and minerals such as magnesium are recommended. You can count on certain herbs such as Ashwaganda, Ginseng, Rhodiola and St. John's Wort.

Despite following these tips, you may still face problems because every human is different and reaction to every remedy could be different. In such cases, approach for expert advice.

Fear is a natural response to situational threats. If there is frequent response of fear without having any threats, then it is a symptom of mental illness which need to be treated by a Psychiatrist. Psychologist will help you to identify your fear related thoughts and to learn to distort these thoughts and implanting constructive positive thoughts. You will also learn to relax your mind

Hi, I am a lawyer and my profession requires lot of numbers to be remembered like sections acts etc. I was always scared of maths as a kid and due to this I opted for commerce as a subject but again in accounting I hardly could score passing marks and since then its d same scenario I never took it seriously before but for d past few months the more I try to mug up sections the more I tend to forget everything. Today morning my teacher asked me few sections in the class all I could remember is lot of pages flipping in my mind but not the answer and I was sweating all over inc heartbeats as if I could literally hear my own heartbeats and also shivering. I don' t even remember phone number of my family members or frds. Have my judicial exams coming m scared can' t loose it just because of numbers please suggest. Hope thrz nothing serious about it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have been avoiding math for too long and now it has grown up on you as an essential part of all that you do. I think that it is now causing you so much anxiety that it is affecting even the memory of phone numbers! you must get this fear and distaste for math out of your mind, first. These are just figures and not complicated calculations where you need to use formulas and formats. Just calm down and take in the fact that you just have to remember numbers, not calculate with them. The fear (to a point of phobia) is actually crippling you. After you have calmed down and accepted math as an integral part and parcel of your daily life, learn some very effective techniques to developing a statement with the words to recall the figures. Say for example, you have a file reference as follows: plo 1930/2015. You could make a statement that reads something like this: the palestinian liberation organization can, in one shot, love nine israelis and take thirty pot shots this year at golf (the underlined letters become your clues to the figure to be remembered). This statement may not make much sense but it is meant to be so that it will enable grasp the imagination, and to be captured in memory. You may also use this variant: plan to lie to my older son at nineteen before he becomes thirty, this year itself. You may also use an audio sound recall by reciting numbers with chosen pauses and have an audio memory that is easily recalled: e. G. 9448113793, audio memory could be recited as follows: nine, double four eight, double one, three seven nine three. I don? t know if you got the drift. Sometimes you can arrange the numbers in such a way that it is easy to recall (again it is an audio skill): 9341255060, to be remembered as nine, three, four, one, twenty-five, fifty, sixty! it will be easy to memorize such variants. There are many more you can learn from some teachers. Talk to counselor to eradicate the fear, the block in the mind, and to appreciate math and not fear it.

Foods That Help Fight Depression

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Foods That Help Fight Depression

Turkey

e traditional Thanksgiving bird has the protein building-block tryptophan, which your body uses to make serotonin. That's a brain chemical that plays a key role in depression, researchers say. In fact, some antidepressant drugs work by targeting the way your brain uses serotonin. You can get the same mood-boosting effect from chicken and soybeans.

Brazil Nuts

This snack is rich in selenium, which helps protect your body from tiny, damaging particles called free radicals. One study found that young people who didn't have enough of this nutrient in their diets were more likely to be depressed. The researchers couldn't say that low selenium caused depression, though. Just one Brazil nut has almost half your daily requirement of the mineral so be careful to limit how many you eat. Other foods with this mineral include brown rice, lean beef, sunflower seeds, and seafood.

Carrots

They're full of beta-carotene, which you can also get from pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Studies have linked this nutrient to lower levels of depression. There's not enough evidence to say that it can prevent the disorder, but it can't hurt to get more in your diet.

Coffee

A jolt of caffeine can be a pick-me-up that helps you feel more motivated. But if you have postpartum depression or panic disorder, some studies suggest that it might make your symptoms worse. Other researchers say a cup of joe can lower your risk of getting depression, though they're not sure why.

Leafy Greens

They're packed with folate, which your brain cells need to work well and which may help protect against depression. Food manufacturers in the U.S. add this vitamin, also known as B9, to enriched grains like pasta and rice. You can also get it from lentils, lima beans, and asparagus.

Milk

It's a good source of vitamin D. If you have very low levels of this nutrient in your body, that can sometimes cause depression. One Norwegian study found that people who took a vitamin D supplement were less depressed a year later than those who didn't. Don't like milk? Boost the D in your diet with enriched cereals and juices, and canned fish.

Caution: Alcohol

It might seem like just the thing to take the edge off your worries or make you feel more social. But most of the time, it's best if you drink wine, beer, and mixed drinks only in moderation. You might feel better in the moment, but heavy drinking can make depression symptoms worse over time, because alcohol makes your brain less active. It also can make antidepressant medications less effective.

Caution: Junk Food

It may be fast and filling, but these processed foods can be bad news for your mood. Scientists have studied how diets high in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fatty foods affect how you feel. Many found some link between these unhealthy eats and depression. Your best bet: a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

You have to make a timetable that is not very harsh and not very lax. You have to assign yourself tasks in a graded manner. Dont assign too many things to yourself all of a sudden. if you fail once or twice, dont catastrophise it. it happens to everybody. Try again. Remember a partial failure is also a partial success. See things in positive light. Give credit to yourself. Thinking is the first step to taking action. You have already got the step 1 right. Step 2 shall soon follow. Don't worry. It is only a matter of time. take care!

Hello sir. I am 20 years old. I have stammering problem. I can't speak properly. Friends make laugh on me. I can't speak to anyone due to stammering. I became frustrated. I can not attend any social program. Can't attend lectures or group discussions. I am a engineering student. But my life became hell for stammering. Sir how can I get rid from it?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.
