5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all. Some risk factors for men developing depression or anxiety include: • Physical health problems • Relationship problems • Employment problems • Social isolation • Significant change in living arrangements (e.g. separation or divorce) • Pregnancy and birth of a baby • Drug and alcohol use. you can consult me prescription

Dear lybrate-user Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people. Hormonal changes, such as those experienced during menopause or pregnancy, can also affect how we think and concentrate. Concentration problems, when present to an excessive degree, are also characteristic of certain physical and psychological conditions. The hallmark condition associated with difficulty concentrating is attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a condition that has been increasingly diagnosed in both children an adults in recent years. Rare conditions that affect the brain and some emotional problems as well as endocrinologic disturbances can also influence an individual's cognitive functions and thus impair concentration. It will be better if you may consult

Does Brain Size Matters When It comes To Intelligence?

MCh Neurosurgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Neurosurgeon, Guwahati
Does Brain Size Matters When It comes To Intelligence?

When it comes to the brain and the IQ, is bigger the better? Does size really matter? Is there really a connection between the size of your brain and intelligence? With the help of findings by neurologists 
and scientists, we seek to find out!

  1. Ailments and the Brain: Scientists have found that children with autism have a brain that has grown in a disproportionate manner in the very first year of their life. This prevents the child from making connections with normal behaviour. On the other hand, children and adolescents who suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD have shown signs of having a much smaller brain size. Many scientists have shown that the size of the brain shrinks as we age, and this does not have any visible effect on our cognitive abilities.
  2. It's all Relative: The size of the brain does not really have a bearing on the way a person's cognition gets shaped. Even large mammals like elephants and whales are finally hunted and tamed by humans who have smaller brains in comparison. The brain is made up of billions of neurons which need to function properly. It may be seen that scientists consider the brain mass in relation with the rest of the body so as to speculate about the cognitive abilities of the person. Why is this required? Large animals need a well functioning and proportionate brain size to control and run their organs with proper cognition for satisfactory results, which is what we humans seem to have done.
  3. Neanderthal Brains: Historically, the earliest man or the Neanderthals are said to have had larger brains than we do. These people are believed to have brains that are at least 10% larger than the brains that we have in our modern times. The shape of their brain was different too. They were also heavily muscled people which had a bearing on the size and shape of the brain and bodies as well as the lean tissue within the brain. They also survived very successfully for a period of over 200,000 years, which obviously points to some form of elevated cognition, as per many scientists.
  4. Animals: While animals with small brains like lizards and reptiles do not perform too well on IQ tests, the animals with bigger brains like elephants and dolphins perform much better. But the medium sized brains of monkeys, lemurs and other animals are said to perform in the best manner. The correlation between the body size and the brain does not seem to hold good here, as per various researches.

So the verdict as per medical science and research stands divided! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice to see that you have openly expressed your situation. Each individual has his or her own likes / dislikes hobbies, interests. Invest some time in your self and develop your own long term and short term goals. Try to live your life according to the goals you have set for your self. During the course of your life you will come across some people with whom you will have common interests or with whom you can share your feelings. Develop friendship and relationships with such people. Always remember that the other person is also looking for some one to talk to or share his/ her feelings. Being a good listener will give you an opportunity to meet up with such people. Wishing you all the best!

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I am sorry to hear that you are facing hardships in your job that is making your life stressful. The fact that you are feeling loss of confidence and efficiency definitely suggests that you are not able to cope up with it. Frankly, you can't change the way your boss behaves but you can work on yourself and focus on improving your coping skills. You will need a complete evaluation by a psychiatrist and accordingly treatment will be initiated. Treatment modalisties can be medications, psychotherapy or a combination of both. You can consult me if you wish to in my clinic for the treatment. You should also start to exrcise daily and also start writing adiary daily to vent out your feelings. It will help you feel better. I do hope that you recover from this depressive phase soon enough. Best wishes.

I 21 years old male I am suffering from hair losing problem and mental stress and night dreams.
Avoid combing hair with fine-toothed combs when wet. Although this is a tempting practice as hair straightens and de-tangles much easily if combed when wet, this is a common cause of breakage. The stress on the hair shaft is immense when the hair is wet resulting in weakened hair roots.

I am 25, female, before 2 years I was a victim of substance abuse, I do not know what was that, it was mixed in an ice cream, and when I ate it, I felt very cold in the nerves of my head till top and he moved my head to right side, and then I became like a body, I do not remember much, also I am facing memory problems now, I can't remember most things which I did today or yesterday or even before an hour. A doctor asked me to have nexito tablets - 5 mg, 10 mg then 15 mg. Now I am taking 10 mg, but sometimes I discontinue it. I FEEL DISCONNECTED MOST OF THE TIMES, MAYBE I HAVE FORGOT MOST THINGS OF MY PAST, THAT'S WHY, ALSO I AM FACING PROBLEMS LIKE COORDINATION, NOT WHILE MOVING, BUT LIKE WHILE I DRESS, OR DO ANY TASK, LIKE THE PART JOINING THE LEFT SIDE OF HEAD AND RIGHT SIDE OF HEAD PAINS, IN THE NERVES AND THE CENTER OF THE HEAD INCLUDING RIGHT EYEBROWS, I face problems implementing any task, I am unable to awake in the morning also sleep on time, like the brain is not working properly, I do not even remember what I studied earlier, maybe the nerves joining both sides of brain are affected, could you please suggest me what medicines to take, not painkillers like ibuprofen, I want medicines to improve my memory also what should I eat to heal the nerves affected?

There is no vitamin that can cause forgetfulness. But you can take any or all of these items and experience huge benefits. Stress is a major problem that causes mental distractions and you will need to work on that with a counselor for the best results. Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, pumpkin seeds, avocado, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Now take you pick!

It is evident that you are having headaches due to stress. This can be relieved by having a relaxing sleep and doing some relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation or some deep breathing exercises. If that does not work it would be advisable that you consult a psychiatrist or a headache specialist for a short course of medication till you get the much wanted relief.

I think you get into a panic mode during the exams and develop the jitters. It is best for you to do deep breathing for a few minutes and you will calm down immediately. There is a good exercise that helps to lower panic immediately: block your closed lips with your index finger and blow tight against your cheeks and hold that breath for some time and then release it. Your heart beat will slow down instantly and you will have a calmer demeanor to approach your exam paper. A lot of the reason may be true because of stress perhaps. But you may work on the following to help you: 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 or coconut 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

I had a lover, I cheated him because I got someone better. He don't know that I'm still cheating him. What should I do?

Psychiatrist, Vadodara
You are basically cheating yourself because if you continue this way then after sometime you will be full of guilt. Please sit down with yourself and have a clear-cut self-talk and listen to your inner voice. I also feel that probably its the result of the way you have been brought up. You lack emotional satisfaction and unconditional love. Wake up and have a clear mind. If you still don't understand then connect directly with a relationship expert for guidance before you fall in soup. All the best.

Hello doctor. I suffer from anxiety and get depressed at t times.I get tremors when I am over anxious .And suffer from lot of phobias .Married for 7 years now and working.But I look cheerful .I badly want to get rid of phobias .I am scared to travel specially by air.I have also taken some ayurvedic medicines and counselling to overcome this problem as I was suffering from insomnia .That's helped me a lot.One more thing to mention.I have brittle flat n rough nails n doctor told me that I am allergic to gluten .

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The problem of phobia is that it has to do with exaggerating the stimulus i.E. Air travel is quite normal and safe, yet your mind plays tricks with possibilities and probabilities and converts them into realities. You become so convinced that no one can change the fact in your head. Then the fear, not the fact, becomes life-threatening and incapacitates you. You will need, through therapy, to be taken through the motions of whatever it is you are phobic about and de-sensitivize you over a period of time. Since you are saying counseling has helped a lot, do continue in it until it is resolved. In the meantime do regular exercise and build a bigger heart that reacts to fear better than the normal person. The bottom-line of any phobia is abnormal levels of fear based in your past. If the feeling of fear is dealt with, it is sure to speed up your recovery. Regarding the nails, kindly follow your doctor's advice.
