Hi lybrate-user, Many face similar problems once they join for their first job. So, I will explain a bit in detail so that others reading also get to know. Your body and mind would have adjusted to a particular way of life during student life and when you start working, your routine is disturbed. Its new challenges which requires lot of energy for the body and mind. The nerves in the brain requires neurochemicals/neurotransmitters for it to function well i.e, for attention, concentration, processing of new information, finding a solution, judgement etc. The neurotransmitters are synthesized on a daily basis and on new job, it has to be synthesized in excess which is away from usual, to meet the new challenges of life. In your case, the machinery in your brain which is synthesizing the neurotransmitters has done its duty in excess for a month but it is getting exhausted making you feel low. Usually, a person learns to cope with the challenges in life sooner or later as the neurotransmitters will get synthesized in excess on regular basis, it requires time. But few will not be able to synthesize/ match the amount of neurotransmitters required. They would go in for having various Psychiatric Disorders esp Depression which is very common. Having told how it is caused, now what you should do. 1. Try relaxation exercises which you can learn from videos on internet. 2. Sleep atleast 7 hrs a day. In the afternoons, you ca take a nap of aroung 20 mins. 3. Take short breaks during your work especially when you feel stressed out. 4. Exercise daily. 5. Healthy diet. 6. Problem focused Approach. 7. If still not able to manage, Consult Psychiatrist at the earliest. Regards.

3 Ways Parents Can Manage Exam Stress

3 Ways Parents Can Manage Exam Stress

"Adolescence is the age at which children stop asking questions because they know all the answers. "

It's exam time. There are some lucky parents who enjoy these times. I said ‘some'. For the rest of us, exam times are a source of anxiety and worries. Everyone relates to exams with anxiousness, stress etc... The only person who may be relaxing is the one who set the papers. Children are running like chickens from xerox centers to the stationary shops. From tutorials to friends. Every ping on Whats-app gives a different reaction. 

Good, bad or ugly. Reactions are uncertain. The largest anxious & worried audience is parents. Some hide their worry with smiling face. Some are anxious because their child is not even aware of his timetable. Some are shouting and some overwhelmed. 

So what does a parent need to do? There are two extreme spectrum in which parents behave. Either they are too involved or they don’t care about it and take themselves out of the picture. The best way to go is moderation. There are different ways in which parents can manage stress. Is stress, bad? No. Certain amount of stress is necessary. But we cannot be so stressed that we are not able to manage the situation in itself. So here are some offbeat look at what can be our action plan. 

1. Expectation handling.

This is the biggest challenge parents face. No matter how evolved are the parents (or for that matter

human beings) they have expectations. Even if we tell ourselves and others that we have lesser expectations than the Buddha. The fact is we are stuck. Let's face it. There is no way we can get out of the expectation cycle. But one thing we can do is manage them and keep them rational. What are rational expectations? They are realistic.They are logical. They are helpful. Many parents expect that the child should sit in one place for long hours. If children don't, parents keep on blabbering about how they don't care about exams.  

"Expectation is the mother of all frustration." Antonio Banderas

Also, there is another extreme parent. These Parents takes too much of care and pamper. Even that can trigger stress contributing thoughts. I knew a parent who took a year off from work for her son’s Tenth exam. 

So should we stop expecting? No. Even if you want you can't. Keep the expectations rational. See if they are logical. Check if they are realistic and true. And most important check the impact. Are these expectations helping you? If they are not give up some of them. Expectation handling gets better with stories, remind your self of Aesop. one of his fables is Boy and filberts. 

A Boy put his hand into a jar of Filberts, and grasped as many as his fist could possibly hold. But when he tried to pull it out again, he found he couldn't do so. The neck of the jar was too small to allow of the passage of so large a handful. Unwilling to lose his nuts but unable to withdraw his hand, he burst into tears. A bystander, who saw where the trouble lay, said to him, "Come, my boy, don't be so greedy: be content with half the amount, and you'll be able to get your hand out without difficulty."

2. Don't carry your comparison scale 

Well you cant help it. Parents carry a comparison scale in their mind about how much or how long their child should study. There is no evidence or approval of this scale. It gets created somehow on the basis of your own past or some topper saying how hard he studied. 

“Comparison is the death of joy.”  Mark Twain

Parents have a philosophy that you can't get what you want unless you go through the suffering. Thinking that this will fire them up to study more and work hard, is one big mistake that you are committing. In some cases it may work, but at this rebellious age probability of getting backfired is high. This scale will damage them life long. even when you give up these scales your child carries it. Like we have been carrying the scales parents have given us. 

3. Understand the teen brain.


Let me tell you the logic.The logic is teen brain develops in an interesting way. The ability to think about consequences is developing which is the frontal part of the brain. So no matter how much struggle you do many of your pep talks are going to fly off their heads unregistered. "Half baked brain, keep it baking "

“Well, no,” you have to say, “your brain is sometimes an explanation; it’s never an excuse.”  Frances E. Jensen

should be the self chanted mantra for parents. This should be your mantra for next several years unless he/she is 20. As you have already seen that your sermons have little impact on your teen as if you are a preacher in the desert. Your job is simple; see if you are giving him healthy food and a conducive environment. During exam times they may behave odd, you manage this moderate. No extreme reactions. So remind yourself the functioning of the brain & "Half baked brain, keep it baking "

Your symptoms show anxiety. Please talk to a counsellor. You need to identify what all is going on in your mind and is hampering your routine life. The counsellor will help you in identifying your issues and also will help you to cope with it. Shaking legs is a reflexive action for anxiety. Whenever you notice, that you are shaking your legs, make a conscious effort to stop it. Keep a book or something on you lap, so the moment you start shaking your legs it will fall, and you will be aware of it and then make conscious effort to stop it. About the habit of" day dreaming" and sleeslessness, behaviour therapy will help you. Kindly talk to a counsellor.

Are You Depressed? It Can Hurt Your Sex Life

Are You Depressed? It Can Hurt Your Sex Life

Depression is one of those experiences when one may feel sad, lonely, dejected and discouraged. Doubt, anxiety and uncertainty crawl in so much so that they may lead to problems in decision making. A depressed person feels devoid of energy and the motivation to do anything at all seems to have disappeared.

Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex releases 'happy hormones'. Thus depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body.

So if depression is badly ruining your sex life, doing these will help big time:

  1. Depression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds. As part of the treatment, the patient will need to find and explore new ways of enjoying sex that can strengthen strained relationships.
  2. Having an open conversation with your partner is key to improving relationships and one's sex life. Talk about your sexual needs and help your partner understand your mental barriers to sex. Find forms of foreplay that appeal to both of you. It is also important for you and your partner to understand that there is no 'standard' to how often you should have sex or how you should feel after it.
  3. Ask your doctor to adjust medication In cases where the antidepressant curbs libido, lowering or adjusting the drug dosage can be a solution to treat the depression without curbing sexual desire. Do not attempt to adjust your medication on your own. Your doctor may also change the drug to another that does not affect your sex drive.

My father used to drink alcohol a lot. But now he drinks alcohol 3 or 4 times a week. And day by day he is losing apatite, infact he totally lost their apatite at night. We insisted him to have dinner usually, why he is loosing their apatite during dinner? Is it any dangerous sign? His age is 53 and weight 61.

Alcohol kills your appetite and too much of alcohol is not good. Give him some salads with his drink or ask him to have his drink after his meals. This way he will eat more and drink less.

Depression And it's 5 Types

Psychiatrist, Delhi
Depression And it's 5 Types

Depression is a very common emotion you might have experienced at least once during your lifetime. Depression refers to a state of mind when you are feeling low due to persistent sadness and loss of interest. But if the depression is chronic and long lasting for you, then it indicates that you are suffering from clinical depression. Under clinical depression, it is preferable that you go through a proper treatment course by a certified therapist. The Most common types of depressions are:

  1. Major depression - Under this type of a depression you will be depressed for most days of the week and if this condition extends for a period greater than 2 weeks, then it is a case of major depression. The most common method to treat a major depression is to talk to a mental health specialist and take medications called antidepressants (only after a prescription by a certified doctor).
  2. Persistent depressive disorder - This is a more severe and long lasting type of depression which is identified if you are depressed over a period longer than 2 hours. The most common symptoms of this type of a disorder are - change in your appetite, too much or too little sleep, lack of energy or fatigue, low self-esteem, trouble concentrating or making decisions, feeling hopeless among others.
  3. Bipolar disorder - If you are experiencing extreme ups and downs of mood abruptly and without any apparent reason, then you might be suffering from this disorder. This disorder is commonly known as a maniac depression, because during an up phase you will be extremely happy, joyful outgoing and talkative but during the low phase you will be sad, tired and depressed.
  4. Seasonal affective disorder - This type of a depression might bother you only during the winter season. This happens whenever the days are shorter and your body is not able to get enough of sunlight. This mostly happens in the case of people who are very fond of sunlight, and they prefer the sunshine over dark periods of the night. This disorder is treated by SAD antidepressants and everyday light therapy of 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Psychotic depression - Under this type of a depression, you will have a major depression along with some psychotic symptoms like - hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia. Hallucinations mean viewing things that are not there, in reality, delusions are false beliefs or misconceptions and paranoia is the constant fear that somebody is going to harm you.

Practices meditation and prnayama will help you. Start writing your thoughts in paper your diary so that your internal feeling will come out. Whatever the thoughts just write down.

Be patience with treatment and be confident of yourself. You will be perfectly alright. No need to worry. Take care Dr. Nikunj gupta.

Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum 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.

Dear Pritam, Every pain near heart is not from the heart. Since you know smoking is one of the risk factors of heart attack, it is better for you to quit smoking. Kepp motivating yourself. Keep a quit day as emotional day. If you have craving, you can take the help of nicotine gum or patch for 12 weeks. Keep rewarding yourself for every small effort you make towards quitting. All the best.
