Anxiety - 10 Facts About It!

Anxiety - 10 Facts About It!

Anxiety is a common issue with growing teenagers. It is not the typical anxiety before exams or academic projects. It is more than that. Anxiety may be the result of the hormonal changes, which predominantly affect the adolescent years of growth. While your body copes with different changes, your mind tangles between the future liberty and present restrictions. Knowing certain facts about this anxiety trail can help you to cope with it.

1. Anxiety is not always a disease: Anxiety is not always a disease. It is a normal phenomenon among adolescent teenagers. However, in certain cases it may be severe for some teenagers. They may feel crippled with anxiety. Under such cases, one would require psychiatric help.

2. Talk to someone: A great way to relieve yourself from stress due to anxiety is to speak with someone. It can be a friend or someone close to share your thoughts. If you know the reason of your anxiety, share it, discuss it. You will definitely feel better.

3. Take a break: Entertainment and break from academic work and schedule is necessary for teenagers to lower anxiety traits. However, if the anxiety is due to peers, you may even take a break from them and engage in family.

4. Cry out loud: It is not a silly thing to cry when you are stressed under anxiety. Crying is an emotional outburst which essentially relieves the stress due to anxiety and lets you control the emotional disturbed state of mind.

5. Good sleep: Sleep is necessary for both mental and physical rest. You need to overcome from the fatigue of routine works, stressful events, peer factor, etc. Catching the essential 8 hour sleep is a great way to overcome anxiety issues.

6. Don’t be conscious: Anxiety is a common factor among all your peers. You are not the only one coping with anxiety stress. So, take it light. Relax and don’t be conscious about your anxiety problems. Consider them to be temporary.

7. Be confident: Losing confidence under the stress due to anxiety can be even more disastrous. The effects will never be better. So be confident about whatever you do, whether right or wrong. Every person learns from his own activities. Whether right or wrong, everything will give you a lesson. So you will never be a loser, you will win a lesson.

8. Don’t feel stupid: Being stressed with anxiety is not abnormal or stupid. Everything is okay with you, and you are not the stupid fellow out there.

9. You are not weak: Anxiety is not a sign of weakness. You can rather make it your strength. Fight it back and keep your energy and enthusiasm high.

10. Anxiety is temporary: As you move ahead of the adolescent period, anxiety will faint. You will be more confident and matured, able to tackle anxiety. So consider it to be an affair of a few years.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My husband is alcohol addicted and pan masala addicted.Please suggest What should I do for removing his habit.

MA - Psychology, PhD Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Getting over aby addiction requires a lot of effort and persistence. You need to talk to him to tell him your cincerns regarding his health and addiction. Have him meet a professional who can chart a treatment course for him.

My sister' s right hand shivers when she does any kind of work. It has also become weaker. The problem has emerged since last one year or so. Her age is 45+ years. Regular medication also doesn' t help. Please suggest any other treatment or medicines for curing or controlling this problem. I think it is a case of essential tremor, but some docs say its parkinson' s disease. Does parkinson' s disease afflict people before 50 years. Please help with your expertise.

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
If it is benign essential tremors as neurologiosts have diagnozed, then you may have to follow up the treatment with them regularly. If there is no rigidity, slowness in walking or emotional nonreactivity then think in terms of parkinson' s disease. Otherwise consult the necessary doctor regularly.

Hello Mam. 2 days back you had advised me to give my brother Becosules cap for 5 days and SM fibro tab for one month (but instead of SM Fibro I have given him Lycopene cap coz that medicines was not available in the medical shop. N I have said him to do exercise with ice cream sticks n blowing balloons n he is doing everything n now the results are good. Before only 9 sticks used to go in his mouth but today 16 sticks are inserting in his mouth. So I was asking should I continue wit Becosules cap and lycopene cap? N instead of giving lycopene cap should I start giving him SM Fibre Coz may be now it is available. N now he even quit smoking n gutka 10 days has been over he dint evn touched gutka n smoking.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Iffath, Congratulations to you and your friend for quitting gutkha and smoking. Find out how much he has saved so for by quitting it. Calculate the amount to 3 months and ask him what he wants as a gift for that amount. Please continue to motivate him for 3 months at least to stop both gutkha and smoking. If he has any withdrawal symptoms he can take replacement for next 12 weeks in decreasing quantities. Tell him stopping them gave full opening of mouth in 10 days itself. Further more benefits will come. Both the tablets are only supportive. Quitting is the treatment. All the best.

Hi you need to continue the medication and complete the course. Do mindful breathing exercise: The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them.  Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing.  Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult me for guidance and counseling.

Your friend attempted to end her life by consuming phenol. There may be possibilities of many reasons behind it: She may be suffering from depression, that everything around seemed dark to her & she saw no reason to stay alive & she planned the act. Or it may be that she is under some stress in her life with which she is not able to cope with & decided to end her life. A possibility of her attempt being an accidental act should also be looked into. It may also be an impulsive act which she had done in sudden anger, & had not planned it previously. Her attempt may also be her way of revolting against someone or some situation she was not happy with. Get her evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make the proper diagnosis regarding her mental state & then prescribe her medicines and/or advice her counseling sessions accordingly. Along with, she needs lots of encouragement & emotional support from her friends, well wishers & near ones to overcome this state. Encourage her to talk out her problems & ventilate her feelings, lead an active & healthy lifestyle & be optimistic with life. Also encourage her to evaluate situations practically & rationally, discuss stressful situations if any with well wishers or seek professional help in solving them, read motivational books & quotes to imbibe optimism within, & make her realize that life is precious & one is gifted with life for once only.

Hi, I want to quit smoke but I can't. Please tell me some useful tips so that I can't smoke anymore. And I know its all depend on my willpower but still I want some tips.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Giving up will appear very difficult but it really not so. It is a decision that has to be made and under the right circumstances, you will win this battle. Since you are trying to stop I assume you know all the ill-effects of smoking. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction.
