Stress is GOOD...Its true!!!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Stress is GOOD...Its true!!!
When we are worried or overly stressed we can’t do our best. We need to be proactive and live life with ease and joy. Our perceptions, attitudes, choices and responses should be within our control.

There is a circle of control within which you are comfortable. For example if you are afraid of speaking in public, you may shy away from such an activity or you may on the other hand, choose to focus on what is under your control by working hard on practicing that speech with friends, family and supportive people in order to overcome your fear.

When issues outside the circle of our control begin to take prominence they are likely to cause hurt and disturbance. There are many ways to feel strong so that you are not always caught off-guard or unprepared for situations.



Not all stress is bad

We sometimes hear people say ‘I work better under pressure’ or ‘I thrive on competition’. There are others who endlessly crib about work pressure, increasing population, mounting prices, water shortage, etc. What we need is a balance. We need to feel stretched, but not so far that we might snap. Feeling bad or worrying about something does not fix the problem but adds to your feeling of helplessness. Being stressed is by itself, usually a cause for further stress.

The attitude of the person and the way they approach the situation makes all the difference. One person’s challenge may well be another’s way of life



Some stress is normal and even useful

A certain amount of stress is essential for normal health. Some stress is definitely required to stimulate us to do day-to-day tasks. Some levels of stress are beneficial for higher productivity and efficiency. A student may be nervous about studying for a competitive exam, but this does not automatically mean that it will cause him/her to perform poorly. The child may just become more conscientious with revision

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

I don't know how to describe my problem. My problem is neatness. Every minute and every second it will be in mind. I keep wash my hands when ever I touch anything. And I have two kids I don't allow them to play outside because they will get dirty. And if I see them dirty I will get very anger I will loose my control. What is my problem and what to do. Please suggest me.

I suggest that you see a psychiatrist for your wish for neatness at all times. It seems to be going towards an extreme and wouldn't serve you any purpose, instead render you quite dysfunctional. Stopping your kids from going out will prove counterproductive because children need to run, play, exercise in the open for good physical, mental and emotional development. Dirty clothes are part of growing up. Sometimes it's fun to be dirty and still enjoy with friends. They learn social skills through play. Cooperation, tolerance, team building, competitions, winning, losing, resilience etc. By keeping them in the house, they will feel bored and lose out a lot.

Bollywood Stars With Psychiatric Disorders

If you thought that fame and money are enough to keep a human being happy and healthy, then you could not be more mistaken. Mental and physical ailments can affect anyone at any time. Celebrities in particular are even more prone to mental disorders with their stressful lives that are centred around topping their past success with even more success, and filling their bank accounts with even more money.

So let us cast a glance on the Bollywood or Indian movie industry stars who have suffered from mental disorders:

  1. Shah Rukh Khan: After his shoulder surgery, Shah Rukh Khan went through a bout of severe and debilitating depression. This surgery had to take place due to an injury sustained on set during the year 2008. Depression and anxiety are known to affect people who have been going through chronic physical ailments and are forced to give up an overactive lifestyle. When this jet setting superstar was confined to bed, he fell into a state of despair and hopelessness. With the help of therapy and positive thinking, he was able to get back on his feet again and portray his charismatic persona on screen.
  2. Deepika Padukone: The dimpled actress recently came out in the open about her recent brush with depression and anxiety when she was busy promoting her blockbuster movies. She ended up going for therapy and taking control of the problem before it took control of her life. Once she had recovered from the overwhelming phase with proper therapy, she began to support mental health care causes so that more people would become aware and learn to take the necessary steps once they recognised the symptoms.
  3. Parveen Babi: She was one of the most beautiful actresses of her time who was also featured on the Time Magazine cover - a huge feat for an Indian celebrity at that point! Shortly after being diagnosed with depression and paranoid schizophrenia, she moved to USA. Overwhelmed with chronic depression and debilitating schizophrenia, she ended her life with suicide at her apartment in Mumbai.
  4. Sanjay Dutt: He may have played and aced the role of Doctor Munna Bhai on screen, but this actor suffered from insomnia and depression during his prison stay. The untimely demise of his mother and legal hassles followed by marital problems led to this state until he took the initiative to recover and get back to a normal way of living.
  5. Manisha Koirala: This well known actress suffered from acute clinical depression during her short marriage. With therapy and divorce behind her, she has started scripting her new life again.

These celebrities show us that we must take charge and bounce back no matter how profound the problem.

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

Dear lybrate user. Lung function test may not be detecting smoking habit. But blood test may. Nicotine content in blood can be detected. You should stop smoking at least a week before blood test so that nicotine content is not detected. Take care.

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

Discussions and consideration of ailments begin and end with those which pertain to the physical health of an individual. Matters of the body are inevitably prioritized over the matters of the mind. However it goes without saying that your overall well-being is as much dependent on your mental health as it is on physical health. However, there are few simple measures which can be undertaken to beat the depression blues.

  1. Exercise: What works for the body may also work for the mind and exercise is a leading example of that. It is recommended that every day you set aside at least some time for exercising. It will not only benefit your physical constitution, but will also keep your thoughts away from the issues which are tormenting you in the first place.
  2. Converse: It is a given that depression alienates people, drowns them in solitude. However, seclusion is merely a temporary refuge, one that can hardly benefit you in the long run. Hard as it may be, try talking to people and engage in conversations with people. In the course of the conversation, try putting into words what exactly you are suffering from. Reaching out for an extended arm goes a long way in recuperating from this condition.
  3. Meditation: When you suffer from depression, you inevitably are, in the process, trying to grapple with plenty of tumultuous issues. It is imperative therefore that you find a way to calm your mind and there is no other way to do it than indulge in meditation.
  4. Find a confidante: When suffering from depression, it is crucial that you find yourself a confidante. It is important to talk to others but it is perhaps more important to find the right person. Irrespective of your relationship with him or her, by all means find a confidante in whom you can unflinchingly confide.
  5. Break monotony: Monotony not only triggers depression but in most cases, breeds it. It is important therefore than you break the monotony. If not a drastic change, go for small changes initially and try to change your daily routine as much as possible.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

I always daydream while walking taking classes etc, and I always think something supernatural will happen and save me from my current situation is this some kind of disease?

I always daydream while walking taking classes etc, and I always think something supernatural will happen and save me...
This is not a disease and could be a defense mechanism to evade looking at your reality and shirking responsibility for your actions. It sometimes borders on magical thinking and the ‘Santa Claus’ wish that somehow your problems will be solved by someone who has great magical powers. As you know that is a pipedream and life has to be faced head on and it involves hard work. So roll up your sleeves and get down to brass-tacks. Nothing comes easy in life, and if it ever does then, ‘easy comes, easy goes’. You should not waste time dreaming like so except when you are ruminating on some bright idea that needs a final flourish of brilliance. Organize your life and establish some clear goals and set about achieving them, one by one. A schedule of steps to reach your goals is also advisable. If not, you could become dangerously disconnected from reality, in the long run.

DEAR Lybrate USER. A) apply paste of fresh lemon juice and fine powder of turmeric on face with gentle massage, two times in a day. B) take 30 ml of triphala juice and 10 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep…. C) take 2-2 tablets of chandraprabha vati and sutshekhar rasa after meals. D) take 2 tablet of vasantkusumakar rasa early in the morning on empty stomach with triphala juice…. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Stage fear happens to everyone, even those accustomed to public speaking. One of the ways to overcome it is to rehearse whatever you are going to talk about. Try rehearsing in front of the mirror. You will become aware of your body language and expressions, and will learn how to improve on them. Frequent rehearsals before any event will help you. Other than that, free yourself from the burden of other people's opinions. Not everyone has the courage to get up on stage and speak, but anyone can sit in audience and mock the speaker. Be indifferent to other's criticism, and only focus on improving yourself. If anxiety is overwhelming and you find yourself feeling low even things are going well, consult a psychiatrist. Medication can be prescribed to help with that. Also try some deep breathing techniques, especially before going on stage. Other than all this, indulge in some enjoyable activity and exercise everyday. You can consult me further, if required.
