Working in the laboratory can be highly stressful. Managing stress effectively is a challenge but it isn’t impossible. Here are a few simple tips for managing stress in laboratory.
Take a Deep Breath – When you are stressed out, breathing does not come so easily to you. So, when you feel you are under stress, just keep aside all your work and take a few deep breaths. Slowly breathe in through your nose, pause for sometime and exhale slowly again through your mouth. Continue to do this a few times and your will see the difference.
Slow & Steady Wins – True to the saying ‘slow and steady wins the race’, in a laboratory, it is essential to go slow and steady in order to reduce the possibility of errors and the stress they are bound to cause. Go slow but steady and you will see your work starts going smooth and error free.
Meditate – Meditation is a great way of reducing stress. There are different types of meditation styles. You can choose the one that you are comfortable with. It could be either meditation with the help of music or without it. Plan and dedicate some time daily for meditation and you will see how it helps you in a couple of weeks. It will not only reduce your stress but make you calm, patient and stronger as a person.
Positive Attitude – Attitude matters and affects everything you do. Every day begin with a positive attitude about a good and stress free day. Even if stress starts building up, stop and realign yourself, think about a positive and fulfilling day and restart work.
Take a short break – This one really works well. While working take a short break after every 2 to 3 hours of work. You can either take a short stroll outside or listen to a soothing song or music or relax. This will rejuvenate you for the coming hours and help keep stress at bay.
Avoid Distractions – With technology bringing information and connections to your pocket or palm, with so many messages, emails and forwards coming in regularly on your phone, it is bound to distract you and not let you concentrate on your work. So, while working as a practice, try stay away from the messages and emails. You may, well, check them when you are taking a break every couple of hours but not as and when they come in. This will not only waste your time but also effect your quality of work.
Follow a hobby – This is not while at work but as a part of your daily routine, try to follow some hobby of yours, be it painting, playing a musical instrument, dancing, gardening, exercise or yoga. Dedicate atleast 30 minutes a day to it and see how it effects your mental health in a positive way.
Try the aforementioned tips and see how they create a positive change in your work life or lab life rather.

The Medical council of India in its recent notification has made it mandatory for the Physicians to prescribe or recommend only generic names of drugs. It also added that the names need to be written legibly to ensure rational recommendation.
The medical fraternity of Kolkata is yet to make the change that is already made compulsory by the government order issued under IMC (professional conduct, etiquette and ethics regulations). Even the doctors doing private practice are yet to put this order to practice, while the medical college doctors have already started abiding by it.
The main objective behind the order is to benefit patients on a long run by keeping a check on the prices of drugs. On the flip side the private practitioners are finding it problematic to prescribe generic drugs due to the scarcity of them with pharmacists and also as finding trained pharmacists with the ability to identify generic names is not easy.
A certain group of doctors are having grave concern over the availability issues of generic drugs though. Generic drugs today are mostly available only with some government hospital drug stores. The private pharmacies rarely have them. So, with the order to use generic drugs, its needed that the flow of generic drugs is also increased and they are made available in plenty across pharmacies and hospitals. The doctors hence want the MCI to take note of the fact and swing into action. Doctors have also assured that once the drug flow is improved, they would be easily able to prescribe or recommend them.
Another concern coming out from another group of practitioners is that they had observed that the generic drugs they had prescribed were not satisfactory and could not cure their patients. Their patients have also been complaining about the same is what some of the doctors mentioned. So, this group is confused at clinical level about recommending them.
Though experts have already claimed that the generic drugs go through some of the most stringent checks and standard clearances before coming out for sale and are known to be highly effective. They also said that the patients or people need to made aware of the facts about generic medicines so that they come out of their misconceptions and judge-mental opinions.
