Dear lybrate-user, stress is a response of body and is a defense mechanism. You don't have to worry about stress. You cannot avoid stress. Stress needs to be adjusted with. Please give the details of your stress so that I can help you overcome stress with stress therapy. Take care.

How could I decrease my stress when starting any work including talking with others?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
How could I decrease my stress when starting any work including talking with others?
Hi lybrate-user, Hope this helps: Prepare to Start Strong First and foremost, no matter who you're speaking to or where, prepare yourself to start strong. You can't talk quietly and mutter and hope that you'll break out of it and be more confident later. You have to start talking loud, proud, and actively right away so that you don't let yourself develop any negative habits. Exercise Beforehand Use general stress reduction tips - like exercise, but also sleep, healthy eating, and even relaxation strategies - to make sure that your mind and body are more relaxed before you start speaking to others. Exercise itself is profoundly beneficial, as it has a calming effect on the brain, increases confidence, and reduces the ability to feel more pronounced anxiety symptoms. Practice Embarrassment One strategy that some people find effective is practicing feeling embarrassed until you no longer fear it. You can actually find this fairly fun. Consider doing naturally embarrassing activities like going out in a clown outfit and standing in public, or singing 80's music loudly in the street. The more you can get used to the idea of being embarrassed, the more you'll stop fearing it. Work Your Way Up You should also strongly consider smaller speaking engagements and working your way up to the number of people you talk to/in front of. Speaking in front of 3 people is much different than speaking in front of 300. At some point you'll find your anxiety increase. Find that point, and work your way up with the number of people you're speaking in front of until you no longer find it quite as upsetting. Practice Until You're Bored With It Anxiety with the material (if you're giving a presentation) can exacerbate speaking anxiety. Even if you know what you're going to say by heart, if you have any concerns that you're going to forget the content, those concerns will grow larger when you're actually speaking. Practice, practice, and practice some more, until you're so familiar with everything you're going to say that you will probably have dreams about it. Also, Try Pictures, Visualization, Laughing Just Before You Speak Sometimes we don’t realize we’re nervous until just before it’s our turn to speak. You may feel calm and prepared until just before your name is called. If you’re out of view, you can try methods such as looking at a baby photo, smiling big, telling yourself a joke or taking big deep breaths. If you’re in plain sight, use your brain to calm yourself. Try visualization or discreet, deep breathing. Keep a smile on your face and try to look relaxed. Consult a psychologist to learn more techniques and ease your anxiety by eliminating it from root. All the best.

Palpitation may be due to stress. Actually stress is the main cause of emergence of so many disease. Take sleep of at least 8 hours and do meditation daily for peaceful mind. Take homeopathic kali phos 6x, 4 tablet four times daily. Have a brisk walk daily in morning to burn extra calories, that help you in managing your diabetes also. For knee problem consult orthopedic. Take calcium rich diet.

I am studying be final year now I got problem with reading and I do the part time job as purohitya my question is lack of interest in studies what to do now.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your lack of interest may be due to the fact that you are in the wrong course. It is possible that your academic pursuits may not hold your attention much. If you have done an aptitude test and career guidance counseling you will be able to know whether the chosen disciplines are what suits your natural skills and talents. Please do that immediately and see if you have to change your course. The other consideration is that you may be technically inclined and so you could do some technical training course. And if that appeals to you you can go for regular engineering and do less years, after you finish the technical course.

STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14. Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15. Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16. Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17. Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18. Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19. Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20. Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive If you need any prescription please consult me as we cannot prescribe in questions session. Regards

Anxiety and stress is part of everyday life.Important is how you take this stress.Some takes it lightly and other like you lose heart and confidenceand take helpof addictive medicine and few others fallprey to drugs .This shows you nature of weakness in your mind.Stress and tensions are self created ,and dont fall prey to them but try to sort out the exact cause.So immediately stop these medicines as thi will lead you nowhere but you will become mentally weak day by day and consult for Counselling.You really need a counsellor.For that time start taking below given homoeopathic medicines as they are much more safe to consume ALPHA TS ( WILMAR SCHWABE INDIA) Drink 30 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 time daily.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concerns. I went through the details. The duty of mind is to think. If you do not provide some creative task to the mind, it will start thinking. And almost always, the thinking is drifted to negative areas. Your obsession wih the movies are the reason for your mind's drifting towards that area. You should stop going for movies so as to stop the fmovie thinking. Secondly you should go for physical exercise and games. You may consult a psychologist for counseling and psychotherapy. I hope this answer satisfies you.. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Every human being is capable to adjust with any given situation. Refusing to adjust is the problem. Once you accept the situation, things will be more clear. Also remember that you were born and brought up in the same orthodox family atmosphere. You need online counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Laughing a lot unnecessarily and starts talking irrelevant. You have to observe her more. What you think irrelevant may be relevant for her. Talk to her friends and get their opinion, and feedback. Then we will decide. For the time being, let her complete the studies. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Cigarette contains more than 4000+ chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, ideally bp should be systolic 120 to 130 (when heart is contracting), diastolic 60 to 80 mm hg, (when heart is relaxing. At your age it good to have bp as 130 / 80.131 to 139 and 81 to 89 is considered as prehypertension. So you will have to see that it is closer to 130 / 80 mm hg. One of the most important aspect is to reduce salt intake to just about 3 g a day. Avoid processed foods, deep fried foods and high fat foods.

I'm not able to concentrate and get distracted very easily and I feel very bored. What should I do?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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.

I am a law student and I want to apply for UPSC examination in near future but the thing is I get stressed as soon as I see huge syllabus and I start avoiding preparation and panic at the last moment. Is there anyway of staying motivated and concentrated for long time. Please help.

If you are really serious about appearing for the UPSC exams and you can not think of anything besides this , put it up on a sheet of paper and put it somewhere you can see it all the time. Secondly, organise and plan - divide the entire content into smaller chunks. Remember, you cannot know everything, so start with the minimum that you need study . Set targets for what you wish to complete in a month, further divide it into what you would want to finish in a week and then set your daily targets. Setting up daily target, makes things more manageable and helps you focus. Have lots of water, fresh fruits and salads , avoid fried and junk foods and exercise daily- this helps you be more alert and energetic.
