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.

Distraction- The Efficiency Killer At Work!

Distraction- The Efficiency Killer At Work!

Nowadays, it is quite challenging to increase work efficiency by overall team performance due to increasing competitions. Hence, the use of modern technologies is helping tremendously to improve the productivity.  But at the same time, these advanced technologies have started creating hindrances in the overall productivity. It includes the internet and social media. They are the major culprit for killing work efficacy and distracting every working personnel. Amongst all these, smartphones are at topmost level comparing to other technologies. However, these are not the only cause of distractions.

What could be the exact cause of the distractions?

According to recent surveys, the biggest efficiency killers in the workplace are as follows:

  1. Noisy atmosphere
  2. Seating in the closed rooms
  3. Gossiping with the colleagues
  4. Being excessively active on social media
  5. Frequent meetings
  6. Taking a frequent break for snacks, or for smoking

All these activities tend to distract people at workplace, making them inattentive, and least productive. These distractions have significant consequences as it affects the quality of work and hampers the relationship with the boss and the subordinates. The great productivity comes from proper focus on one task at a time until it gets completed. The use of all these gadgets during work hour is increasing day by day. Notifications from these programs used to keep in touch with people are the biggest distracting measures.

In some organizations, the distraction is avoided by removing all the barriers, such as blocking social websites, banning personal calls, and cell phone use, monitoring emails and internet use, limiting meetings, providing open space etc.

How to improve work efficiency?

Close all these communication channels. It will definitely help to concentrate on the work. Receiving notifications in between work, breaks the chain of thoughts, and takes more time to complete the work. Try to gather all the information before starting the work. Put smartphone either on silent mode, or vibration mode, and stay away from all such distractions.

Schedule a break with definite starting and ending time. This will serve dual purpose, in making one feel relaxed and feeling refreshed to start the work again with the same enthusiasm. Be in the company of productive people. Get inspired by observing how other co-workers are improving their productivity.

Take a walk in case of difficulty to concentrate. Researchers have shown that taking a walk for 15-20 min improves brain function, provides refreshment and renewed energy.

Stay away from the noisy environment. The good remedy to avoid noise is using headphones and listening to soothing music. Stay away from any kind of gossip, or unnecessary discussions as they divert the mind from the main focus.  

Conclusion

Being focused is equally important to improve the work efficiency, to improve the productivity, and to maintain the relationship with the organization. Distraction will never help to flourish and will create many obstacles in the path of success.

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

Too much stress can interfere with your work output and health. Some tips to help you are: 1. Keep a track of things for a week or so which usually lead to stress and how you tend to respond to them. Once you know the exact situation that are stressful, you can then think of ways to deal with them in a effective manner. 2. Divide your work into short term and long term goals which are achievable. E.g. How much work to get completed in a day/ week and how much you want to accomplish in a month or 3 months. Then decide on much time you need to devote to get the work completed. Once you start achieving short term targets you will feel positive about yourself. Also give yourself appropriate rewards for completing your tasks at regular intervals. 3. Take short breaks while working on targets e.g. 15 minutes after every 1 hr of work. Do something recreational in that time. 4. Take life easy and include some hobbies in your daily routine which will help you to rejuvenate. 5. Get ample sleep and have proper diet. 6. The importance of exercise in daily routine cannot be neglected. So start will small steps and gradually increase it.

Depression can have an effect on our concentration which interferes with learning and recall of information. Although a healthy nutritious diet is important, here are some tips which might be useful: 1. Reduce distractions and focus on the task. Try not to think about other things when you are trying to get something done. 2. Write the information that you want to remember 3. Group large amount of information into small chunks which can easily be recalled. E.g. A 9 digit number is easier to remember when we make three groups of three number each 4. Associate things to be remembered with each other. E.g. Items of shopping list like you want to buy bread, pen and bottle so you can imagine a bread with pen and bottle on top so that it is easier to recall all three items 5. Use mental imagination to link things together 6. Do some brain exercises e.g. Solving puzzles, crosswords to keep mind active Lastly get appropriate sleep, exercise and reduce stress.

As you have described, it could be anxiety related to health issues or could also be OCD. Get a thorough evaluation done of your symptoms and start treatment accordingly I.e. Medication and counselling.

He needs to undergo through evaluation for his difficulties. An IQ test is recommended. Along with it other tests to know whether or not he is suffering from other childhood disorders like ADHD, autism etc. After that a skill based training program can be formed to tackle the various behavioural problems.
