However unavoidable the situation becomes and no wonder how much heated the aura is, you can’t let yourself collapse. Whenever someone triggers you, close your eyes and try to pacify yourself at once. Take time to analyse the situation underlying in front of you. Think before you act because your actions can determine a lot lately. Try moving out of the place and try figuring things out.

  • LAUGH

How many of you have heard that laughing is a good medicine? It definitely is. Imagine yourself at the interview where you boss is trying to bully you or pressurise you.  What will you do? Will you growl at him? You can’t. So to relieve the stress you will find humour and calm yourself down. Whenever you feel angry try relieving tension in the air by laughing at it. Use humour to clean the bad breath. However, you can avoid sarcasm as it gets witty.

Empathy is “to be able to step into someone’s shoes”. When you empathise with others you build an understanding of them. When you empathise, you are more likely to be in a position of understanding other person’s problem and less likely to be aggressive.

  • NO GRUDGES

Holding a grudge for a long time can fuel aggression in a long run as the energy can neither be created nor can be destroyed. When you hold a grudge you block a part within yourself from being free. The blocked part gets converted into a negative energy and sooner can exploit your sanity and put you in trouble. People who hold a grudge are more likely to show criminal instinct than those who don’t.

SEEK HELP WHEN YOU NEED

Last but not the least; never hesitate to seek elderly help. If you notice traits which are not normal or you face intense aggressive behaviour with your peers and colleague, it is the time you should seek an elderly advice. Remember behind every mishap is a callous attitude that we linger to.

New Delhi, Sep 10, 2017: If you know someone who is visibly depressed or struggling to cope with challenges of life, do not hesitate to intervene for fear of making things worse. Just hearing them out with empathy can make the difference between life and death, say experts.

In India, more than 100,000 people commit suicide every year, according to the National Crime Records Bureau.

“The key is to be empathic and not be sympathetic. People in a depressive state of mind only need to be heard,” said Pallab Maulik, Deputy Director and Head of Research at the George Institute for Global Health India, New Delhi, which conducts research aimed at changing health practices and policy.

As per the Global Burden of Diseases (GBD) data, mental health/suicide is the top reason for mortality among older adolescent girls and the figure remains among the top causes of death in boys as well.

“The number of adolescents committing suicide due to depression is increasing at an alarming rate in our country,” Maulik said on World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10.

“Various factors such academic pressures, personal relationship break-ups, pressures at work, interpersonal violence and intimate partner violence are some key reasons for depression amongst adolescents and young adults. Alcohol and drug abuse are some other factors that affect mental health well-being,” Maulik added.

According to the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), compassion and empathy from others helped to turn things around for vulnerable individuals.

Offering a gentle word of support and listening in a non-judgemental way can make all the difference, said the official World Suicide Prevention Day 2017 Website.

Being caring and listening with a non-judgemental ear are far more likely to reduce distress than exacerbate it, it said.

“About 800,000 people commit suicide every year, which is one person every 40 seconds. Those in the 15 to 29 age group are particularly vulnerable,” said Anna Chandy, of Live Love Laugh Foundation, Bengaluru — a not-for-profit organisation founded by Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone.

“There may be people around you who are struggling to cope and display visible signs of being depressed. Noticing such signs, offering support and encouraging them to seek professional help is crucial,” Chandy added.

Maulik said that suicides can be prevented through various measures taken at community and individual level.

“Early identification, treatment and care of people with mental and substance use disorders is important. Besides listening to the person, observing sudden behaviour change and proper counselling could help prevent a large number of deaths due to suicide,” Maulik added. (IANS)

New Delhi, August 14, 2017: Worry is a story that we create inside and we use it to create fear. You tend to create fear of something which has to happen in the near future and by worrying, you deplete your strength and energy so much that by the time the situation arises, you would have made yourself already a weak person. What’s expected in such situations is to keep yourself strong so that you can face the situation and respond to the situation with an open mind.

Our every thought, every word and every action are our own creation. Circumstances come to us externally, but our responses are completely our choice. One must admit that there are some things in life which cannot be changed and problems will continue to persist, however, one must learn how to stop worrying.

How to Stop Worrying?

Worry is a delusion

You worry about things that ought to occur in the future. Worries are primarily the monsters you build in your head and are just in your head. It is a sheer misuse of your imagination. A single liberated thought devoid of tensions can make your day.

Incorporate mindfulness

The most efficient technique to stop worrying is to inculcate mindfulness, which involves nonjudgmental awareness of present thoughts and emotions. Make yourself consciously aware of the fact that worries are going to persist for an indefinite period of time but that should not take away your sanity. Also, have a deeper understanding of the fact that worries can never change the outcomes/end result, so deal with the situation rather wasting time and energy on ruminating.

Acceptance

Accepting worries help the person to move on and pass out the situation with ease. Those who are naturally more welcoming of their intrusive feelings are less obsessional, have lower levels of distress, and are less worried.

Gulping Sweets

Sweets are believed to enlighten the mood of the person. Devour your favorite sweets and forget about worries. Whenever a nerve racking thought occurs,  Go ahead and grab a chocolate bar.

Forest Therapy indulgence

Forest therapy promotes relaxation and reduces the activity of sympathetic nerves associated with “fight or flight” reactions to stress.

Pen down your worries

Penning down your own thought might be counterintuitive, but it’s almost similar to emptying the fears out of your mind. You tend to reevaluate that situation so that you’re less likely to worry about those situations.

Cooking is therapeutic

Cooking helps in combating stress and ease the stress levels. When you prepare a recipe, you only focus on one thing and by doing that you spend less time on worrying about issues that concern you.

Soul awakening through meditation

Anxiety disorders are due to the repetitive, anxious, often baseless thoughts and worries about the future. However, practicing meditation awakens the soul and brings the mind to zero thoughts, which is imperative for the mind wanderers.

Keep the hands busy

Keeping your hands busy can help keep your mind off of worries.  Keeping your hands and mind working conflicts with storing and encoding visual images, which explains why worry beads and knitting calm us down.

Rational thinking

People tend to worry about things they have no control over. It doesn’t change the situation anyways. It is better to stay practical in such situations and so that you are able to respond to the situation open mindedly.

Exclusive: The need to Build Emotional Intelligence in Children

Tracking and cultivating a child’s emotional and social strengths helps in building a strong foundation for future

depression and anxiety issues in Children

  • It is observed that a positive environment around the kid helps them manage personal feelings better
  • Reducing dependency helps the child decide and learn through trial/error method
  • Mindfulness and meditation is the key, says Sadia Saeed Raval, the chief psychologist at Inner Space

New Delhi, July 26, 2017: Ever since its inception, emotional intelligence is considered as a spectral key to success. Even though the concept has recently gained popularity, traditionally there have been contradictory opinions on it and it is commonly misconstrued, discarded or highly favored. But to truly capture the ideology behind “emotional intelligence” and to be able to incorporate it in our personal lives, we need to understand what it means.

Reporter Nivedita Motwani of NewsGram got in touch with Chief Psychologist at Inner Space Therapy, a counseling and psychotherapy center to discuss the importance of emotional intelligence in children.

While depression and anxiety issues are being more commonly diagnosed in the adults and the youth across the globe, a larger cause of concern is the alarming rate at which these issues are increasing amongst children. In a WHO report, it was observed that almost 5 crore people are being diagnosed with depression in India and an alarming rate of that fraction was from the age slab of 15-29 years.

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to make emotions work for you, rather than against you. Click To Tweet

Depression and anxiety related issues are rising in the kids in recent times, be it because of cut-throat competitions or bullying. Kids are becomings emotionally vulnerable and more prone to such disorders. Building their emotional graph at an early stage has become very necessary in recent times. It is often observed that kids with a higher emotional intelligence grow up to be well rounded human being and contribute more positively to the environment as opposed to the ones who are not very responsive to emotional and social activities.

The Importance of a Positive Environment: There are several reasons affecting the child’s temperament – it can be inborn or conditioned culturally or caused by disabilities. Most of the behavior is modeled by adults, active influences, and the environment around them; the positive environment is manifested in the child’s temperament and reactive abilities. It is integrated in the manner in which they manage their personal feelings as they grow and begin to actively participate in social exchanges.

Reducing Dependency is the Key: Often parents make their kids highly dependent on them and limit their experiences by controlling their reactions. Kids when taught to decide for them, begin to learn through trial/error method and grow emotionally. They learn through mistakes and tiny milestones, and when an experience like – learning to socially indulge, comes from within; they lack social awkwardness and grow up to be confident individuals. While parents may find it difficult to transfer such responsibility to their kids, as they might consider their children to be gullible and naive and might feel the need to protect them. But the only way they can protect them is by not inducing the need for dependency and by gradually teaching their kids to tackle situations on their own.

Recovery through Mindful Indulgences: When NewsGram asked Sadia Saeed Raval, Chief Psychologist at Inner Space Therapy, a counseling and psychotherapy Center that how the kids in therapy are treated and what engagement methods she uses to make kids comfortable? She said, ‘Child counseling primarily involves ‘play therapy’ in addition to the commonly used talk therapy. Children, owing to their still developing language and communication skills often cannot express themselves verbally. They can relate to symbols better, such as are found in stories, picture books, puppets, and drawings. This also makes therapy enjoyable for children.’

She further explained that at Inner Space they follow the 3 steps sessions, i.e. – through self-expression, identifying the root of behavior, and thereafter, modifying behavior.
