Beware of Social Media Addiction It May Cause FOMO Anxiety

Beware if you are checking out your Facebook updates, tweets, Instagram in every 10-15 minutes and if you feel that you cannot live without the social media, chances are high that may be suffering from FOMO says Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo (Delhi’s eminent psychologist & family counsellor). In other words, you might be suffering from a constant urge to be in touch with friends and happenings via smartphones.
FOMO or Fear of Missing out is a pervasive apprehension that others might be having rewarding experiences from which one is absent. FOMO is recognized as a kind of social anxiety which is characterized by "a desire to stay continually connected with what others are doing" adds Counsellor Shivani.
FOMO in social media may sound harmless, but global experts suggest when a person experiences an overwhelming amount of activities seen on social networking sites and faces an inability to attend all of them or be a part of each event can lead to feelings of stress and dep…

Do You Know Why Some People Are Angrier Than Others?

Anger is a common emotion that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense rage. Anger generally is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; like when one gets angry, their heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of their adrenaline and noradrenaline hormones.

Anger can be caused by both external and internal events. One can get angry at a specific person or outcome (failure) or sn event (a traffic jam), or one can get angry by worrying or brooding about ones personal problems. Memories of traumatic or enraging events can also trigger angry feelings.

How to Convince Your Resistant Partner to Join You in Pre-Marital or Marital Counseling?

Counselling proves beneficial when relationship faces poor communication, lack of trust, frequent fights and when partners start to question themselves if its worthy of living under one roof anymore!. These are some of the signs that couples should immediately seek professional help from an expert.
However there is one constraint that a lot of couple faces before coming to a good marriage counsellor - resistance from one partner who maybe sees counselling as a waste of time or money, or they’re afraid it will make things worse, or just a way to forestall the inevitable.

How to Overcome Social Anxiety & Shyness?

Lot of time we face professional and educational setbacks because we miss conveying our ideas and messages effectively to a group or a crowd. Even though we got the best of ideas & information, we miss to speak effectively and put a positive impact on the listeners.
The problem that a lot of people face (especially youngsters) while speaking publicly, their shyness (sometimes inaccurately is called "social phobia"). And this drawback sometimes pulls them back in their educational and career growth like –failing job interviews, losing top management trust, losing venture capitalists, financers etc.

However, for some, it can 'stick', almost as if it has become a 'habit'and then persistent actions are required to overcome it. Today Counsellor Shivani shares some important tips on how to overcome shyness …

Risk Factors of Poor Good Life Balance & How to Overcome It

One factor that is very important to stay happy and healthy in life is to maintain a good work-life balance, i.e. proper prioritization between work and personal life. Unfortunately in today’s Urban India, achieving work-life balance is becoming day by day, tougher.

How to Love Ourselves?

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
Generally, we perceive self-love through actions like buying ourselves a special gift, going to a spa, spending a particular time just for ourselves etc. But these actions do not derive particularly from self-love emotions rather you can say these actions are essential for self-attention in today’s hectic life.
Self-love has a deeper aspect, it refers to the relationship quality that one has with himself/herself, it refers to winning the struggle to accept, embrace and love ourselves, with all our imperfections.  To be 100% honest about who we are, how we feel and what we need. To stop disgracing ourselves for everything we aren’t, and start giving ourselves credit for everything we are.  And to be aware that not everyone we love will agree with us at every step of the way, and to be OK with it.
So the question is how to love ourselves? Relationship and Marriage Counsellor Shivani …
