Social anxiety can lead to problems in interacting with others and can have an impact on your self-esteem. To manage social anxiety you need to stop avoiding social situations and make small efforts to engage in communication with others on regular basis. Start with things which are least anxiety provoking. Further you canlearn to do some breathing exercises to manage the physical symptoms of anxiety. You might need to improve your communication skills and learn to be more assertive. CBT and social skills training by a professional can help you manage your problems effectively.

I am in stress due to my study so, what should I do for my health and my brain stress.
Excessive stress can lead to negative impact on your life. You need to reduce your stress levels by being better organised with regards to your studies. Make a daily schedule and also list short term and long term goals that you want to achieve (may be in next one week, month or two months). Have 30-40 minutes slot for studying with regular intervals of 10 -15 minutes (you can do a bit of stretching/ exercise/walk, check your messages or have a chat with someone). Use methods of learning which will help you retain information in better manner (making links among contents, using imagery methods). In your schedule, include slot for some physical activity and your hobby or doing things that interest you. Try to relax and take on day at a time. Make goals which will be achievable so that you can have positive feedback for your efforts.

Addiction - 10 Sure Shot Ways To Deal With It!

Addiction - 10 Sure Shot Ways To Deal With It!

Alcohol, tobacco and drugs; these are some of the most common substances that people can get addicted to. Getting addicted is easy but to get rid of your habit is hard.

Here are a few things that could help:

  1. Set a date: Addicts who tell themselves that they will quit tomorrow often never end up doing so. Set a date for yourself when you will have your last smoke and drink. Ideally, you should set this date a few weeks from the day you decide to give up your bad habits to allow yourself to be mentally prepared.
  2. Find new friends: Peep pressure is one of the most common reasons for an addiction to begin. Hence, the first thing to do when you are trying to give up a bad habit is to stay away from the people you associate with that habit and make new friends.
  3. Hold yourself accountable to someone: While you can give in to yourself, it is harder to make excuses for doing something when you are being held accountable by someone else. Find a mentor or a friend who will be there for you and who will ‘sponsor’ your deaddiction.
  4. Find your weak spots: Every habit is triggered by certain factors. If you have decided to try and give up a bad habit, identify the factors that trigger it and avoid them. For example, your morning cup of coffee may trigger the need for a cigarette. By replacing coffee with juice, you can make your morning a little easier.
  5. Take up a new hobby: A hobby is a great way to distract yourself from cravings. Crossword puzzles and Sudoku are great as indoor hobbies while swimming is an excellent outdoor hobby. You could even try gardening or crafts.
  6. Exercise: One of the many benefits of exercising is that it can help boost endorphins and make you feel happier and thus less likely to crave cigarettes of alcohol. Aim for at least half an hours exercise each day.
  7. Maintain a journal: Some days are good and some days are bad. To give yourself a balanced view of your deaddiction process, maintain a journal. Write down your achievements as well as your pitfalls and be proud of what you have achieved for yourself.
  8. Help someone else: The best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else. Similarly, with addiction, the best way to be strong and give up a bad habit is to help someone else do it. This way, you are forced to be a good example and give up the habit yourself.
  9. Ask for help: Do not be so proud as to not be able to ask for help when you need it. Remember, it is better to appear weak and ask for help rather than go back to your addiction.
  10. Don’t give up: Relapses are common but they do not have to be the end of your efforts. If you do have a bad day and have a few drags of smoke or maybe a drink, tell yourself that it’s ok. Identify the reasons why you gave in to yourself and start afresh from the next morning.

Crucial Time To Handle Kids And Manage Your Relationship!

Crucial Time To Handle Kids And Manage Your Relationship!

It is said that children are a gift and watching them grow up is one of the most joyful things of life. Having said that, many couples initially feel that having a baby will not change the way things are between them and later find out they are wrong. So how do kids affect the bond between a couple and what can be done to make sure that the strain on the parents is not too much to bear?

Having a baby not only changes the equation between the couple but also, in some cases, the equation between the couple and other friends and family. Many parents do receive a lot of support at the time of the delivery and also receive some initial support on making the shift back home from the hospital. After that, in most cases, you are left to fend for yourselves and you have to iron out the details in front of you as you go. In order to do this in the best way possible, it is very crucial for both the parents of the baby to work as a team.

Questions that you need to answer in an objective and frank manner include those which pertain to who does what for the baby, how you will manage adequate rest as well as how you will divide other activities that need to be carried out around the house.


Quite a few couples who, prior to the baby, have amicable relations end up arguing a lot more after the baby is born. The level of exhaustion and responsibility, which comes as part and parcel of not only looking after oneself and providing a level of care to the partner, but also caring jointly for another human is quite a task.

For many couples, the stress shows by the way of strain. Taking a few deep breaths will help tone down anything, which may spark into an argument and will help you solve your issues in a calm manner. Spending time together while running chores for the baby will help you bond better. Taking time out for each other while the baby is asleep or away to a day care or a school is also very important for maintaining a healthy relationship.

As long as there is an effort to adjust to a new normal rather than struggle to deny change, things may be bumpy initially, but it will definitely work out for the better.

How can I reduce the stress.
Mentally and physically I was suffering from stress can you help me out regarding this.
There are few things you could do to reduce your stress: 1. Organise ourself better. Lookout for situations that tend to cause stress. Then think about a number of ways to better handle those situations and select the one which seems most feasible. 2. Try to make a list of to do activities for next day before going to sleep so that you don’t wake up feeling too anxious or worried about things to do during the day. 3. Take out time to do some relaxation exercises or workout. 4. Engage in recreational activities or hobbies. 5. Stop worrying too much about getting things done. Slow down your pace of life. 6. Let go of things and unnecessary anger. Choose your battles or struggles and engage in ones that are most important. 7. Be kind to yourself and do not go for perfectionism in everything. There is nothing more important than ‘yourself ‘. 8. Rather than worrying about things mentally, write down the things you worry about and then think about appropriate solutions of solving them. Mentally thinking about things do not lead us anywhere.

In depression people tend to stop doing their daily activities as it feels burdensome. But not doing anything can increase depression as person feels that he is useless and not able to anything. Further negative thoughts come more to your mind if you sit idle. So having few activities planned in your daily routine will not only keep you busy but also help you to decrease depressive thoughts and get back to your daily routine easily. So try to include activities that you like and can do them easily without much effort. So it could be anything that you enjoyed doing previously (prior to depression) but don’t do them now e.g. Reading newspaper, going for walk, getting grocery or vegetables, going out with friends, talking over phone, any other hobby you have. If you do things that you like then you won’t feel too burdened and will be motivated to do them. Further do reward yourself for any effort made however small so that it motivates you to increase your activity level.

You can try relaxation and meditation to lower your bodily symptoms of anxiety. Practice breathing exercises to help you remain in control when you have anxiety attack. Look out for situations that generally increase your anxiety and what other ways are there to manage them. If you still find it difficult to handle, seek professional help.

A person can have episodes of depression and mania which may last for few months and once they are resolved the person may come back to normal level of functioning. The relapse may or may not occur in these disorders and it depends on many factors e.g. Compliance to treatment, stressful environment, previous level of functionality, family support etc. However if the person is able to function adequately despite few symptoms which may remain, the progress is considered to be good enough.
