First of all you have to remove the all fear from your mind, be optimistic and see positive aspect in each issue. Avoid loneliness, be with family and friends. Chant some mantra of your liking like aum, aum namo shivay or aum namo bhagvate vasudevay namah or gayatri mantra regularly when ever gets time, reading of ramraksha or selected chapters of durgasptashati or hanuman chalisa. Proper sleep, exercise like morning walk, yoga and regular simple veg diet is useful, once in a week fasting or consuming only fruits 1- sarsvatarishta 15 ml + ashvagandharista 10 ml twice daily with water after food 2-daily scalp massage with almond oil before sleep 3- brahmivati 250 mg 2 tablets twice

Why Smoking Pot Is Actually the Opposite of Cool!

It is a common trend among youngsters to smoke weed as they tend to think it makes them look cool. It is a common misconception that smoking pot relieves various social and personal problems. It is used as a form of escape mechanism that allows them to avoid problems in life.

The usual reasons why people turn to smoking pot are:

  1. Peer pressure: You may have friends who smoke weed on a regular basis, so you may be tempted to join in.
  2. Boredom: It is a usual resort to escape from boredom or craving excitement. It is said that smoking weed helps in filling the internal void that results from lack of excitement.
  3. Rebellion: Weed has also been connected and continues to be a symbol of rebellion among today's teenagers and youngsters.

Risks:

  1. Smoking weed has been shown to shrink the size of the orbitofrontal cortex, a region of the brain that is important in making decisions and processing emotions.
  2. It can alter your mood, hamper body movement and impairs your ability to concentrate and execute tasks.
  3. It increases your risk of getting affected by phlegm and cough.
  4. The long term effects of marijuana comprises of impaired learning and thinking skills.
  5. It also affects the process where new connections are formed in the brain.
  6. Regular weed smokers have also been shown to have lower IQ levels comparatively.
  7. Apart from the mental effects, it may also cause breathing discomforts as the smoke may irritate the lungs.
  8. It also increases the chances of heart attack in the elderly.
  9. Weed has also been reported to impact the fetus if a pregnant woman smokes it.
  10. It raises the risk of behavioral problems in children.
  11. The complications that a child may face are impaired problem solving skills, attention and memory related disorders.

Thus, it is important to stay away from smoking weed as it is addictive and increases your chances of getting affected by numerous health complications.

I am suffering from mental disturbance because I have fail in love. What should i do to rid of this?
Accept the reality. This is the most difficult stage. Mind will not accept the reality easily but, you have to do it. Stop becoming victim. Accept the reality and stop self destruction. You don't need to prove anything to anybody. Understand this and prepare your mind set. Stop having self pity and make your life interesting. And surely for that you don't require your ex. You are the only one who can make it. Get busy, stop living lonely. Homeopathic treatment and counselling is suggested in all kinds of depression. Homeopathic medicines are safe and natural. Your feedback and recommendation matters. Thank-you.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

My mom aged 55 yrs staying alone and does not want to visit any on of us (2 brothers 1 sister). Post marriage she underwent depression by thinking we betrayed her and no more behaving like her son's. Father expired 15 years ago. She complains abnormal heart beat, anxiety and always cries for money and expenses. She is not listening to us and very stubborn. She is diabetic patient. I want to take her for psychological counselling but she is not ready. How to tackle this type of situation? Could you please suggest?

She must have missed, and is probably missing her husband, a great deal. Then she may have relied on you children. But after marriage she thinks that your devotion to your spouses means that she is no longer important to all of you. May be a bit of old school thinking! you will need to make her feel wanted and important even if you are all married. Her illnesses are her way of getting your attention. Knowing this you must give her a lot of attention for healthy reasons and assure her of your love always. Now to practically solve this problem you must visit her on a long trip and stay with her and make a lot of fuss over her, and very smartly invite a counselor over to the house. Let that person handle the situation after you have briefed the individual about her background. While she wants your attention she may play games around it and complain because she is missing all of you and her husband. So keeping this in mind be soft, caring, and loving with her. If you are all in the same town or nearby, make it a point that one of you are always there in turns so that she will not feel lonely. Then over a period of time just take her back with you to each house so that she has a variety of experiences of your love in a variety of homes and she will gradually get better. Any way your counselor will advise you further.

My husband is 35 years old. He is very aggressive and violent. He never lets me express my feelings when he hurts me with his behaviour. On the contrary he starts blaming me giving superstitious reasons. This is affecting our marriage very badly. He is irregular in his work. Spending days at home, watching tv, playing games on mobile or else sleeping but not going to work giving some reason or the other. If he does any work of an hour or so he talks high of it but not regularly going for job. He lies too much to escape confrontation. There is always fight between us and he blames me for it calling me jinx. Although ours is a love marriage. Suddenly he has turned hostile towards me. He misbehaves and quarrels with me when his mother is around specifically. I have been very patient with his violent behaviour but I also retaliate at times due to the physical and verbal abuses everyday. He never accepts his mistake and behaves very abnormal by shouting, pulling his own hair, making weird voices, making big eyes etc. This is very disturbing for me. I come from a family where my parents never raised their voices at me. Forget about beating. I have only my father in my family. My mother is no more. He knew everything from the very beginning and he was ok with it. Gradually he has started blaming my father for our bad relationship. Although my father never interferes. My father intervened once when he was physically abusing me and my husband raised his hands on my father too. I am unable to cope up with his behaviour. Kindly advise.

I am a little concerned that he is becoming so dysfunctional and finding excuses to justify it. Also a lot of his behavior could come under some pathological condition that he may need immediate help. I suggest that you both go for marriage counseling and work out your issues and if that counselor sees the need for him to seek psychiatric intervention, he would need to do so, and maybe he will be more receptive if the suggestion came from the professional. If he is unwilling to come with you, you at least go and meet with the counselor and describe the situation as objectively as you can. You will be guided as to what can be done to help you cope. You should not tolerate violence at any cost: this will lead to a pattern so that later it will become near impossible to correct it. If he has any disturbance in his personality, then he himself may not realize his misdeeds. If left untreated, he could become worse. Keep your father out of this as much as possible and seek professional help soon.

Express your emotions is not a disease. Why you want to control your emotions. Don't control them just change the way of express. When you feel happy help needy persons. Not only by money by physical help also. This make you feel happy more but keep calm your mind. When you feel angry do activities like making drawing and colouring what make you angry. When you want to cry just cry. It clear your inner soul. Write down your emotions any why they rise daily. Just clear every thing be positive always. Accept what happen always.

Mam or sir I feel very lonely n stressful as nobody is there with whom I can talk or share my feelings.
Hello we all do face situations which make feel lonely, sad etc. Everyone need people to share their feelings and form connections. But its also true that we ourselves can bring change. For this you need to motivate yourself and promise yourself that you will bring change in yourself. You can engage yourself into some hobby classes like cooking or art and craft. As you start going there, you may start connecting with the people around. May be soon you find any good friend. Writing diary daily could also be good option to let your feelings out. It will help you to understand the reasons for these feelings. All the best, please feel free to give your feedback.

You are into your late adolescence and there are bound to be issues related to this stage in your life. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.
