Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Thank, I will surely consult you. Please suggest me of how I should change my Indecisive mind Decreased concentration Ideas of guilt Pessimistic view about future. Do I need to take medicines to get these out of my mind. I want to think freely. It shouldn't matter to me who is thinking what. What I am doing is what makes me happy. Please advise.

Dear lybrate-user. These issues are mainly due to negative attitude rather than any specific psychological disorder. Stress also could be another factor. Once you are able to perceive the surroundings and happenings and understand self, your positive attitude begins. Attitude building therapy should suit you. If it is due to stress, stress management is the answer. Take care.

What is fear of child birth called. I too much fear the process of child birth. Lady doctors call me pschyo. Is there any way to deliver without experiencing cuts and stitches. How to gain confidence that I can bear the pain of delivery. I am not prepared for it. I am experiencing a toll on my married life.

The fear of childbirth is natural as natural labour is really a painful process bu almost all ladies bear it happily. Having too much fear is really abnormal and so it is correct to call psycho (though for humour only). But ladies have to bear pain many times in their life time so, they should not be fearful of them but face them bravely. You can boost up your courage and tolerance to pain. You do lot of pelvic floor exercises and also increase your general physical activity and stamina. Your delivery will be fast and event-free. Now a days you may also go for painless vaginal delivery with subdural obstetrical analgesia in a good maternity centre. I shall never advise you for caeserian section just to avoid pain as it involves short term as well as long term implications.

I do all my work very efficiently but my family keep on say you are wrong. Can you please tell me can a person be wrong all time. My friend are selfish when they need me they call me but when I can they don't reply me. I am fed up of this life. I believe if a person is wrong several times but he or she may right also. & relationship needs efforts but two way not one will do. How to stay with them.

The right way is to not bother about people, not chase them and run after them. Real people with real intentions will recognize your worth and stay with you and its them you need to cherish. Consult a psychologist to get counseling about how to proceed and go about in relationships and key to maintain it. Also, learn about faulty patterns if any which is occurring and causing you to lose people. You can consult me for same.

How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help Combat Stress?

How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help Combat Stress?

One of the major pitfalls of modern professional as well as personal life is stress. With obesity and bad diet, stress completes the unholy trinity of the three pronged problems which contributes to many modern lifestyle related disorders. Even if you control obesity and diet through lifestyle changes, stress is inherent in our everyday life and mostly is not in your control. 
However, Ayurveda has some great methods through, which you can limit or minimize stress and limits its effect on your mind, body and soul.

Ayurveda - The holistic approach to stress
Ayurveda has been around for thousands of years and is thus, a great tool to fight or reduce many of the physical and mental ailments that afflict you. Ayurveda’s approach at busting stress is thus, very well rounded. These methods help keep your mind still to reduce stress and also reduce the ill effects of stress on your body. Some of the elements of this holistic diet are mentioned below:

  1. Change your diet: Stress creates craving for unhealthy food, which is either very spicy or has a lot of processed sugar or fat. It is a temporary fix, which is again required when the next bout of stress hits, resulting in a pattern akin to addiction. One of the first steps is to break the cycle by changing eating habits. Stress occurs as a reaction to adversities in the world and rather than food aggravating the vata, pitta and kapha doshas, it should pacify and balance them. Whole and healthy food is what you need in such a case and it can comprise of
    • Soups
    • Root vegetables
    • Stews
    • Simple foods such as rice or roti
    • Green vegetables among others
  2. Drink herbs in form of beverages to reduce stress: There are many forms of Ayurvedic herbs, which can help combat stress. One natural response among many people when stressed is to consume coffee or tea in large quantities, which may actually aggravate the problem. Try drinking Ayurvedic herbs as tea, which have been specially formulated to combat stress and correct the unbalanced doshas within the body.

  3. Try Aromatherapy: Incense sticks and other specially formulated aroma candles can be used to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home where you can sit and meditate while the pleasant aromas and the herbs within them can lower your stress level and act as a release point. 

  4. Abhyanga: This is a form of self-massage with the help of specially medicated herbal Ayurvedic oils. It helps the body by relaxing the muscles, lubricating connective tissues and also improving circulation. Abhyanga reduces stress within the body and keeps you calm and relaxed. This will help you to reduce stress and also handle it better on a daily basis.

  5. Pranayama, yoga and exercise: One of the most effective tools to combat stress and improve your physiological condition is through yoga and pranayama. Pranayama in particular is one of the most effective methods to regulate multiple functions of the body and to ensure your mind stays still and calm. Certain yoga poses can also be emphasized on to ensure better stress relief. Also ensure that you diligently follow your exercise routine daily as it is proven to be one of the most effective ways of combatting stress.

  6. Herbs: Certain herbs can be used as medications, which can restore the balance of doshas. Sometimes, stress is caused due to internal problems rather than incitement from the outside world.  Some of the herbs that can be used in medicated combinations in such cases are triphala, ashwagandha and brahmi. However, it is best to consult with an Ayurvedic practitioner who can prescribe tailor made medications for you.

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

Environment is always right. But our mind set is not right. Junk food may not caused your problems. It will not reason for your problem. No social net works it is good. But I think you have no friends also. May be always sit in home alone. That is not good. Make friendship with who are good at studies. They suggest to you a very good time table and diet also. They suggest good methods of studies and tell how to come out of the study problems also. You not solve all the problems take the help of good friends. Ask the elders and teachers about your problems. They will tell what you need. Take the advise of elders and good friends. Make a good time table and solve it in a systematic manner. Ok best of luck.
