What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a feeling of uneasiness, apprehension, or tension you feel in response to a real or perceived threat. Situations that cause distress or threaten a loss can create a feeling of anxiety.
Anxiety reactions can either be mild or so intense that you feel panic. Normally anxiety is temporary but when it lasts a long time, it becomes a significant problem. Extreme anxiety, which may be accompanied by a panic state, may require psychological or psychiatric treatment.

 :What are the Symptoms ?
Psychological signs and symptoms include:    
  • apprehension
  • restlessness
  • irritability
  • fear
  • panic
  • inability to relax
  • impatience
  • difficulty concentrating
  • feelings of imminent danger
  • lack of enjoyment
  • trouble sleeping
  • dry mouth
  • hyperactivity
  • flushing
  • sexual difficulties
  • nausea, vomiting
  • tremors
  • faintness
  • constipation
  • lightheadedness
  • diarrhea
  • tingling
  • choking sensation
  • muscle tension
  • hyperventilation
  • frequent urination
  • rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • sweating, especially in the palms
  • shortness of breath/chest tightness

Anxiety can be assessed during an interview with a health care provider. Your health care provider will try to identify symptoms associated with anxiety. He or she will ask you about life events, daily activities, and your view of how things are going.
In addition, your provider may examine you and possibly suggest lab tests to rule out a physical problem as the underlying reason for your anxiety. The tests done may include a complete blood count, blood analysis, thyroid function tests, and urine analysis.
How is it treated?
You and your health care provider will discuss your symptoms. Then he or she will try to suggest ways to help you deal with anxiety. The provider will also try to identify circumstances that trigger anxiety. The provider may refer you to a psychotherapist or a mental health counselor, a specialist who can help you learn how to deal with anxiety. Talking with your health care provider or a therapist can be helpful.
If your health care provider suspects your anxiety may be caused by drugs or physical problems, he or she will give you a physical exam and conduct lab tests. The provider may then recommend a treatment. If your anxiety is severe or causing panic, your provider may initially prescribe medication to help you manage the symptoms. These drugs are most effective when used in combination with psychotherapy and stress management techniques.
How can take care of myself ?
Increase your awareness of how anxiety and stress affect you and learn which coping methods work for you. Also, get adequate rest, follow a balanced diet, exercise, and learn to use relaxation techniques. Talk with your health care provider or therapist about managing events in your life that trigger anxiety. In addition, learn to talk with friends and co-workers about the normal stresses of daily life.
What can i do to help prevent Anxiety ?
Anxiety occurs when life's demands feel greater than your ability to cope with them. Therefore, prevention means improving your coping skills or modifying the demands and expectations in your life. To prevent anxiety, try these techniques

#Techniques :

  • relaxation techniques such as self-hypnosis and meditation
  • behavioral techniques aimed at improving ways of coping (exercising, eating balanced meals, getting adequate rest)
  • counseling aimed at changing stressful life circumstances
  • broadening and deepening positive relationships by finding group activities that encourage give and take and provide a feeling of support
Knowing how to lessen anxiety can build emotional strength to cope with life events that cause anxiety. To minimize negative stress that can cause anxiety:
  • Exercise for 20 minutes, at least 3 times a week.
  • Change drinking, eating, and sleeping habits:
  • Rest or sleep 6 to 9 hours a day.
  • Eat 3 balanced meals a day.
  • Drink at least 4 glasses of water a day.
  • Reduce coffee and alcohol consumption.

How To manage Stress ?

  • Identify what causes your stress.
  • Modify or eliminate stressors.
  • Develop methods of relaxation like talking with positive-minded people, listening to music, walking, or enjoying hobbies.
  • Learn to use stress management techniques like muscle relaxation exercises, mental imagery, and deep breathing.
  • Use affirming and hopeful thoughts to overcome negative ones, such as telling yourself, "I am doing the best job I can given the circumstances."

This room is the room of group discussion. The first task of the GTO is the group discussion. This is one of the most important task as the candidate creates his first impression to the GTO on the basis of Group Discussion Task.  As the first impression is the last impression, the candidate should be careful in his choice of words and his viewpoints.  First of all, before starting a group discussion, every candidate sitting in the circle introduces himself to his other mates about his educational qualifications, the city of residence, hobbies etc. Sometimes the Group Testing Officer or the GTO gives one compulsory topic to the candidate to talk upon whereas in other cases he gives a couple of topics.

Aakra __اکرا  #AAKRA 
About three thousand years ago there was a city named “ Aakra ” near Bannu. This ancient city was full of life and had its own civilization. People of Bannu believe that due to the sins and misdeeds of the people of Aakra, Almighty ALLAH destroyed the city. It has been said that Almighty ALLAH poured stones instead of water from sky. As a result of this “rain of stones” whole of the city was destroyed.

Some say that it was destroyed by volcanic lava. There are others who think that some ancient invader might have looted the city and killed its population. One of them may be true or perhaps all of them untrue. It is the Almighty ALLAH who knows better.

The ruins of Aakra are present at a distance of a few kilometers from Bannu in Baraat, a village on 250 feet high hill. They have encircled an area of 133 acre.

According to the belief of local Hindus, Baraat was the founder of Aakra, the brother of Ram chandar. But that's wrong Because Ram Chandar and Barat we…

History of the KASHMIR conflict

A brief history of the Kashmir conflict
The Kashmir dispute dates from 1947. The partition of the Indian sub-continent along religious lines led to the formation of India and Pakistan. However, there remained the problem of over 650 states, run by princes, existing within the two newly independent countries. In theory, these princely states had the option of deciding which country to join, or of remaining independent. In practice, the restive population of each province proved decisive. The people had been fighting for freedom from British rule, and with their struggle about to bear fruit they were not willing to let the princes fill the vacuum. Although many princes wanted to be "independent" (which would have meant hereditary monarchies and no hope for democracy) they had to succumb to their people's protests which turned violent in many provinces. Because of its location, Kashmir could choose to join either India or Pakistan. Maharaja Hari Singh, the ruler of Kashmir…
