How to overcome the negativity given by other people who constantly want to make U depress. Should I fight always, it spoils my mood or what should I do to avoid depression.

Hello, I can understand through what situation you are going through! but always fighting back is not the solution. Either sit and talk to that person directly or try to avoid that kind of situation which makes you stressed. There are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks.

I am a 40 year old I feel angry & dont have sufficient sleep.Please do help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Have you identified what you are angry about? if you have or even if you haven? t, go meet with a counselor to deal with the feeling. Unexpressed feelings with continue to circulate in your system and finally settle down in a favorite organ and lead to its malfunction or total dysfunction. One thing, it seems to have already done is that it has affected your sleep. Sleeping less than 6 hours a day is known to directly impact at least 86 diseases! that will, in other words, compound the problem more and will eventually lead to depression. Meet with a counselor and discuss this anger, and see whether you are escalating anger over fear and having people incorrectly relating to your anger when fear is the actual and genuine feeling. I assure you that you will be pleasantly surprised at the huge effect expressing feelings will have on your situation.

Hello, I can understand your pain at losing one very important person in life. You probably had hopes of spending long time with her and had plans for the future and now nothing is going to happen. All these thoughts might be causing you sadness, disappointment and some anxiety and anger on the other hand. While it's important to be an important part of someone else's life, yet it's also important to know when to call it off if it's not working anymore. 1. At this age it is common for boys and girls to get attracted to each other and spent some time together. But equally common is breakups when one or both see that their needs are too different now and the other person will not fit the requirements any more. While this process is very heart breaking, but it is also important so that you can meet different people and see who is your kind of person and who will help you in the next phase of life ie. Job, marriage children. 2. By going through different relationships you will also understand yourself better and discover many hidden qualities and weaknesses in you. It's your growing edge to work through your weaknesses and sharpen your qualities. You will also discover your passion, dreams and hobbies and interests. 3. I suggest that you look at this breakup as a learning lesson and an opportunity to improve on any thing that was your mistake and assess your life choices again. What was meant to go will go. Let it go and you carry on with your journey. 4. Being flexible and independant in relationships is important. There will be times when you might not have any body's support or company. That is the time to learn to be your own friend and give yourself that love which you want from a close friend. This is healthy self love and very important for self confidence and high self esteem. 5. Indulge yourself with meeting new people, going places, discovering your passion, hobbies etc. Spend time alone with yourself to nurture the person within you.

If there is improvement with dothiapin, its dose can be increased further. After adequate dose, it may take around 4 to 6 weeks for its full effect. You will have to consult a psychiatrist for this. It there is no improvement, other anti anxiety medicines can be tried.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , you are a wise person. You already know that smoking is a bad habit. You are just 39 and I know many people who left smoking after many years of smoking. I always say it is very easy if you have the will power. Say no to tobacco. Actively engage in physical activities and outdoor games. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices. Both combined, manages the craving part of your body. I suggest you to stop it abruptly, now itself. Take care.

You have good concentration. You shift your interest into learning new things that help you clear exams. Practice learning organize way/ Make a graph of priority areas in your syllabus and concentrate and learn. Practice answering question papers of previous years and time it be serious. Be quiet in mind and all others will have the same in their mind. Be natural and face in your own words. For public speaking you practice for few times. You will master. Just do it. You think of strength and relax. Meditate and keep deep mental poise.

How to improve our confidence ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
How to improve our confidence ?
1. Make three lists: one of your strengths, one of your achievements, and one of the things that you admire about yourself. Try to get a friend or relative to help you with these lists. Keep the lists in a safe place and read through them regularly. 2. Think positively about yourself. Remind yourself that, despite your problems, you are a unique, special, and valuable person, and that you deserve to feel good about yourself. Identify and challenge any negative thoughts that you may have about yourself, such as ?I am a loser?, ?I never do anything right?, or ?No one really likes me?. 3. Pay special attention to your personal hygiene: for example, style your hair, trim your nails, floss your teeth. 4. Dress in clothes that make you feel good about yourself. 5. Eat good food as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Make meal times a special time, even if you are eating alone. Turn off the TV or radio, set the table, and arrange your food so that it looks attractive on your plate. 6. Exercise regularly: go out for a brisk walk every day, and take more vigorous exercise (exercise that makes you break into a sweat) three times a week. 7. Ensure that you are getting enough sleep. 8. Manage your stress levels. If possible, agree with a close friend or relative that you will take turns to massage each other on a regular basis. 9. Make your living space clean, comfortable, and attractive. Display items that remind you of your achievements or of the special times and people in your life. 10. Do more of the things that you enjoy doing. Do at least one thing that you enjoy every day, and remind yourself that you deserve it. 11. Get involved in activities such as painting, music, poetry, and dance. Such artistic activities enable you to express yourself, acquire a sense of mastery, and interact positively with others. Find a class through your local adult education service or community centre. 12. Set yourself a challenge that you can realistically achieve, and then go for it! For example, take up yoga, learn to sing, or cook for a small dinner party at your appartment or house. 13. Do some of the things that you have been putting off, such as clearing out the garden, washing the windows, or filing the paperwork. 14. Do something nice for others. For example, strike up a conversation with the person at the till, visit a friend who is sick, or get involved with a local charity. 15. Get others involved: tell your friends and relatives what you are going through and enlist their advice and support. Perhaps they have similar problems too, in which case you might be able to band up and form a support group. 16. Try to spend more time with those you hold near and dear. At the same time, try to enlarge your social circle by making an effort to meet people. 17. On the other hand, avoid people, places, and institutions that treat you badly or that make you feel bad about yourself. This could mean being more assertive. If assertiveness is a problem for you, ask a healthcare professional about assertiveness training. 5 quotations about self-esteem and self-confidence Adversity and perseverance and all these things can shape you. They can give you a value and a self-esteem that is priceless. ?Scott Hamilton Giving people self-confidence is by far the most important thing that I can do. Because then they will act. ?Jack Welch Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. ?Helen Keller Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. ?Lao Tzu To wish you were someone else is to waste the person you are. ?Anonymous

No. But a new born needs a happy father. So get out of anxiety first. You can also try therapy apart from medication.
