Stress Management

I've noticed a change in myself lately. Despite enduring a year-long struggle for life, I've become more talkative, happier, and accessible. However, I've reached a point where I no longer experience heightened happiness or excitement for anything special. While I'm not entirely sad or stressed, my parents and those around me often comment that I seem more stressed and less joyful than before. My father even suggests I consider therapy. Is seeking therapy the right approach, or should I explore other options?

A therapy is always a good choice and something we should all consider from time to time. In any case it can only improve things, so you have nothing to lose. I hope it all works out 🙏🏼❤️

Therapy is always a good choice. But plz stay strong and try to find joy in small things you like. Follow your passion or try to spend time with your loved ones and you will definitely see a change in yourself

my boss is pressurizing me to take a certification exam at my job. are there any insights on how yo deal with this? I do not feel ready to take the exam now.
Try talking to your senior and HR if possible, if you unsure about something its always better to have clear communication before hand and its better if they formally write about details of this exam on formal mail/letter

Does anxiety control your life or do you control your anxiety?
Hi I am a counselling psychologist, helping people to manage their stress and daily life mental health challenges. I would like to answer your question. Agar anxiety aapke decisions aur daily activities ko impact kar rahi hai, to samjho anxiety aapko control kar rahi hai. Lekin agar aap techniques use kar rahe ho anxiety ko manage karne ke liye, to aap apni anxiety ko control kar rahe ho. I hope my answer helped. You can connect with me in live sessions also to get your anxiety managed.

Is it okay to feel guilty abt questioning my long-held beliefs?? This thought is actually taking over my mental health now.
Hello there, yes why not. We all change every single day, and with that our thoughts also change, and so if at a srage you feel like some belief is not working for you now or limiting you in any way,you can definitely question it and assess it. Nothing wrong, it just means you are growing.

I do well in my exams. But I fear them a lot. i feel that despite of the efforts I put in, I will fail. Is this chronic fear of failure?? What are some ways through which I can stop these feelings?
FLP8d
use Aloevera nectar.. DM for more information
Hello there, many young people have this constant fear of failure. Ask yourself, if this is a fact or a feeling. If you have failed before also, then it is a fact, and you need to put in double effoerts to study and pass. In case you have never failed earlier, then this is a feeling, so just let this feeling go and continue working jard and study. Good luck for your exams

My financial status is getting the worst of my mental status. I seem to be getting panic attacks because of it. How can I calm myself down?? How can I assure myself that i can do it and get myself out of this situation??
Hello dear. First of all, Hang in there.. All of us have been there even though we don't share these things with friends or family. I'm a Consultant Psychologist and Sexual Health Expert. Having panic attacks indicate a severe form of fear that is usually unrealistic. For eg. we might feel, 'I would never recover from this issue'. That's not TRUE right. Nothing is for sure. So, working on your thoughts is important. As a Psychologist, I would recommend some therapy like CBT. For now, just practice writing down your fearful thoughts and burning the paper. And come on a live session with me and we will have a conversation. - Consultant Psychologist
Hi there ma'am, i am sorry to hear that you were experiencing such distress. financially. stress can significantly impact our mental health, but as a clinical psychologist, I can offer you some strategies to help you manage these attacks and build a plan to address your financial concerns. firstly to help yourself calm down, I would suggest some breathing exercises, one of my favorites being box breathing in which you need to inhale for 4 seconds. hold for 4 seconds and exhale for 4 seconds. can you repeat this cycle for a few times. he will notice yourself being grounded to reality. for your financial stress, I would love if you could set up a realistic financial call such as savings for a specific need and break these goals into the smallest possible steps you can. This could help less of the stress and anxiety and allow you to make better decisions. I would love hearing from you more. please reach out to me anytime you want to. Take care .

My partner has been shutting me out lately, giving me the silent treatment. I keep trying to talk things through, but they just withdraw further. Is this what they call "stonewalling" in relationships? What should I do?
Hello dear, first I hope my answer finds you well. Secondly, I can not give his attitude a name as the whole situation is not clear. If you want my advice, do not judge him or keeping yourself busy by giving his behavior a name instead, try to re-evaluate the relaionship and the causes behind his recent change. You should also open a discussion with him, listen carefuly and explain your concerns clearly, then and according to his reaction to the previous you can make a conclusoion and consequently a proper decision.

Recently, I have realized that the way I think or feel ant certain moral things do not align with others and that has also led to a lot of relations of mine going down the pipeline. I kind off feel off and demotivated now, but i know i shouldn’t be. How can i make myself feel better abt it??
Hi... it's okay if you have different sense of morality... because people not validating us actually doesn't matter... people who matters will stick around... however who leaves let them leave... also none of us remain motivated all the time... and that's okay. Do join my live sessions to talk more 🙂

The fear of death is freaking me out! How do you deal with the unknown of what happens after we die? Any tips for overcoming the fear of the afterlife, or just accepting that it's a mystery?
Hello there, it must be very difficult to live with such a feeling. Why don't you try and find out what is causing this feeling in you, or when did it start to bother you. or maybe there is a trigger to it. And I would also suggest you to get in touch with a psychologist/coulsellor who can help you with this in an effective manner.
