My friend is suffering from stress because he is not getting a job and became 28 years old. what he should do?

Ph. D - Psychology

My friend is suffering from stress because he is not getting a job and became 28 years old. what he should do?
Use the below methods to relax 1. Meditation it's not as new-age as it sounds. No moonstones and patchouli oil required. In fact it's really easy and effective. It's basically awareness; listening to your own breathing, looking at a view, or it can be whatever you like as long as you clear your mind of other thoughts and cares. You may find it helpful to repeat a mantra at the same time to make focus easier. If you want something less free-form there are various types of meditation that you can learn from, transcendental meditation to heart rhythm meditation. All have a different slant on awareness and relaxation. Try it when you feel yourself getting stressed or as a preventative measure for 5 to 10 minutes a day. 2. Deep breathing by slowing down your breathing and breathing from your diaphragm you can immediately relax yourself. When we are stressed we tend to take shallow breaths which don't give us enough oxygen. Stand up and breathe deeply into your tummy ten times. Imagine you are filling up a balloon as you breathe in through your nose, and deflating it as you breathe out through your mouth. It helps to put your hand gently over your tummy button and feel as your tummy pushes it out and then brings it back in as you breathe the air out. 3. Mindfulness this is a bit of a buzz word at the moment. It's quite closely linked with meditation. The idea is to be mindful of something and appreciate it in that present moment and block everything else out. It may be appreciating the colour of a flower or examining a piece of jewellery to see how it was made. Focusing on the present can reduce stress. Linda blair clinical psychologist and author of'the key to calm' says you can practise mindfulness and relax in just 3 minutes" turn off your screen, choose a common object like a pencil or a coin (not your phone) and begin breathing very slowly focusing on the object and describing it to yourself in as much detail as you can. To focus completely and fully on something in the present is the essence of mindfulness. And approach a career counsellor.

I have a boyfriend and we both love each other very much, we cant stay without each other, we were very happy before but this days we argue for every small things. Everything starts from me, he never do or say things that hurts me but sometimes when I get angry I use 2 take out all ma frustrations n anger @ him. I feel very guilty for all that I wana stop all this bt I just cant control my anger, it hs happened many times bt each time he excuses me n overlook ma mistakes. He is very very sweet. But few days ago in anger I said him things that I dint mean at all n he is so hurt that he dont talk 2 me nicely now. I cant see my relation gettin broken like this. I feel very bad. I appologised alot for that n tried 2 console him but he is very hurt. I love him very very mch I cant see him this way. I want our relation to be like before. Please help me soon. I dont wana looe him.

If you are angry, then you need to manage your anger and channelise it properly. You lose your temper on him because you know that he is sweet and will not retaliate back. This is called displacement of emotions. You need to take out your anger on the person with whom you are actually angry. Sort out your issues with that person. If you continue to behave like this, you might just lose him completely. When you are apologising, try to be genuine without giving justification of your actions. Listen to what he has to say. Give him time to accept your apology. Don' t expect everything to happen the way you want it to be. Counselling helps in assertive communications and mending broken relationships.

Dear, 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. 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. Take care.

I am taking heavy amount of alcohol everyday I want to quit but not able to do it kindly suggest what I will do?

Dear friend, when one takes alcohol regularly, one does so to get a high but one should realize the everything is a combination of polar opposites. One dosen't realize that the high in the night is the reason for the low in the morning and it is directly proportional to its intensity. So you are kind of trapped and you fail to assess that the high is bringing a demand of another high and low as an outcome! place a big picture of fatty liver, in the room you often take alcohol in. Everyday look at it and chuck it out when you feel, enough is enough.

Yesss, smoking creates lots of health problems. If you want to quit your addiction of smoking you need to create motivation in urself that you can stay without smoking. It helps to create your self confidence to quit it. Try to attaind narcotics anonymous meetings. Or you can take help from psychiatrist to deal with your withdrawal symptoms. Use positive substitutes like chewing chocklate, mithi soanf etc. But do not use smoking if you r going through craving. If you have any questions you can ask me anytime. Not to worry, best luck. I know you have the ability as well as power to come out from the disease of smoking addiction. Have a nice day.

Dear lybrate user, it is very difficult to assess or diagnose with just this much information. I suggest that you see a psychiatrist or homeopathy doctor to further assess your overall condition and give you medications accordingly. 1. Besides this, please start regular exercise so that you become mentally and physically healthier. 2. You can make healthier food choices by having more fruits and vegetables, fish, eggs, proteins for optimal performance of the body and mind. Reduce junk, fried, sugary, processed and refined foods because they are linked to quick aging of the body and mind due to chemical, free radicals etc. 3. Meeting up regularly with friends, having fun and light hearted conversation help both mind and body to relax which is important for all of us. Go for long walks, picnic, outdoor activities to relax and enjoy. 4. Have a hobby of your own where you can feel creative and satisfied by the outcomes. This is very essential for anyone who feels that their life is boring and unproductive. 5. Sleeping for 6-7hours every night will repair and heal any tiredness and cellular damage to the brain. You will feel refreshed and hopeful at the beginning of each day. Going out in the sun is good for optimal brain function.

Hi lybrate-user, it seems you have anxiety and negative thoughts which are irrational. Practice Mindful Breathing 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. Also, we need to do cognitive behavior therapy to help you with negative irrational thoughts. Don't worry at all you can overcome this with right treatment. All the best.

Meet with a counselor first and then if that person recommends a psychiatrist to deal with this issue, do visit one as soon as possible. There may be some developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with childhood fear which has now developed into these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, she will believe such things as will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in your daily routines she cannot but help herself. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself, like the excessive washing. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

Dear lybrate-user. Fear of death, in your case, I don't think has reached a condition where phobia name can be given. You just fear death. Almost everyone do fear death. That is part of becoming mature. Don't worry. Engage in creative and entertaining activities and ignore and divert death related thoughts through activities. Take care.

Dear , being a lonely person and roaming around alone, never means you have any mental disorders. Many people are like you. There must be some other reasons for you to be mentaly disturbed. You told you have cleanliness phobia. Is it diagnosed as obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd)? you need to provide more details regarding your thoughts, behavior, emotions etc so that I will be able to diagnose your problem. Please take care.

My father expired last year. I have 8 years old son and husband is working in Merchant Navy working abroad like 6 months out of india and 3-4 months in india. Once my father expired then I was with my mother for 1 year in patna and this also resulted in discontinuing my kid education, however kid was still going to home tution. Now the thing is that as per the mutual agreement from my husband I took this 1 year to give moral support to my mother. Now I am back to my husband where we are staying i. E. HYDERABAD. So I still want to support my mother as she has responsibility of 1 more unmarried daughter. Regarding my family then 1 elder daughter with 3 kids settled in delhi and 1 younger daughter unmarried working in Patna and 1 younger brother working in Merchant Navy. So I want to support my Mother for 1 more year for which my husband is not accepting and also I told him that I will continue the kid education in patna. He is saying that I can go and support but I have to leave the kid so that he can stay here and take care of the kid for 1 year and I can come back and we both are emotionally attached that we do not want to take divorce. FYI - My mother is suffering from anxiety and depression and insomnia, hypertension, cholesterol and dyslipidemia. My husband wants that either I can bring my mother to hyderabad and can stay with me but this is not possible as my mom cannot leave her younger daughter alone. He also said that my younger sister can quit the job and take care of mother but we do not want to do that. Same thing for my brother to quit the job for 1 year and to stay with my mom but we do not want to do this. Also my elder sister is ready to come over patna and take care of my mom but my mom do not want to do this as she has 3 kids age 13 and 14 which will be difficult to manage bcoz of their education. THIS IS THE MATTER WHICH IS CAUSING STRESS ON OUR EVERYDAY LIFE AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT IT MAY END UP TO divorce. SO PLEASE HELP US.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand that you would be in tremendous stress. But your husband's worries are also correct. You may tackle the situation like this that try to make your mother and your siblings understand your situation. You all can decide to take the responsibility of your mother turn by turn. That your mother can stay 3-4 months each with everyone if u. Your younger sister because she is working can stay in some working women's hostel and when your brother comes home during that period your mother can stay with your brother and sister in patna. This way she would also feel good and won't feel bad when she would be with you or your elder sister. Both the husbands of you both sisters also won't feel burdened with this system. So try to make it a team effort so that you get less stressed. Regards

Dear Manoj, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction.

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. Please search internet for "effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

The human body has an internal clock that is constantly reset by the activities you do and exposure to light. The clock determines for instance, that it is night if there is low light exposure, decreased activity and so on. So, if our routine is variable, the clock is confused. So the first thing to remember is to have a reasonably fixed time of going to bed and waking up. The amount of sleep for a given 24 hour period is limited, akin to a mobile recharge with validity. We need to spend it wisely. So if you sleep during the day, you may not have a good night's sleep; if you spend data on unnecessary things, you will not have enough when you need it! remember the restaurant where you had some really delicious biryani. The moment you walk into it, your mouth waters in anticipation. So too, your bed must make your body anticipate sleep; not work, tv or something else. In other words, reserve the bed for sleep, not for working, watching tv etc. Sleep is a state of relaxation. Anything activating disturbs sleep. So do not take coffee, tea, cola after say 7 pm in the night! there are other ways in which the body can feel activated, and therefore also interfere with sleep. Avoid watching action movies and listening to heavy music before sleeping time. Of course, the bed room must not be brightly lit or noisy. What about exercise, it is always healthy right? yes, but exercise must be done well before the sleeping hours; lets say no exercise after 7 or 8 pm in the night. Why? while exercise during the day keeps you healthy, gets you tired and promotes sleep, if done late in the day, its activating properties interfere with sleep! what if I don't fall asleep. Then I keep checking the time, keep rolling in the bed forcing myself to fall asleep. Bad idea! you try to fall asleep you become more alert, a phenomenon known as paradoxical intention! so what should you do? if you don't fall asleep, get out of the bed, sit on a chair and read a book. Don't do anything activating. Once you start feeling drowsy, get back to bed. Besides invoking paradoxical intention, you are also preventing the body from associating bed with struggling to sleep. What about alcohol, it helps you fall asleep right? right and wrong! while it does apparently put you to sleep, it is associated with poor sleep quality. So you have slept without the benefits of having slept! avoid heavy meals just before sleep a warm water bath may be helpful now for the practically most important advice! if you fell asleep late, still wake up at the scheduled time, even if it means feeling tired and drowsy the next day. You will feel troubled for a day or two, but will start having good sleep at the desired time at night. Also resist the temptation to take a nap during the day. If you wake up late or take a nap during the following day, the whole cycle will continue - sleep late, wake up late!

I take tobacco regularly. I want to leave this bad habit. What should I do. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just the fact that you want to give up smoking though is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. 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 also 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. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.
