The reason why some people like to be alone Because human beings are complex no single reason can explain a certain behavior but instead more than one person can be engaged in the same behavior for completely different reasons. Below are some reasons that could explain why would some people like to be alone, note that more than one reason can be present together in some cases: Lack of social skills: Some people claim that they love to be alone because in fact they don't know what to do in the company of others. That's one of the popular self deception methods the human mind uses. Its better for the person to claim and even believe that he likes to be alone rather than admit that he can't communicate properly with others Lack of social interest: We humans can't live on our own and we need each other to survive. Some people, who were mistreated by their caregivers, didn't manage to develop social interest and as a result started to like to be on their own rather than being with others (see Social interest theory) Protective walls: Some people claim that they like to be alone because people are evil, not trustworthy or bad. Those people are usually the ones who suffered from poor past experiences and who didn't manage to get rid of the bad memories.(see How to get rid of bad memories) Introversion and mental health: Recent researches are starting to put introversion under the category of mental disorders. When you find yourself really happy don't you feel like seeing your friends? On the other hand what do you feel like when you find yourself depressed? Most probably you will want to stay in your room. Some people like to stay alone because they are introverts but introversion itself could be an indication that things are going the wrong way in your life.

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Physiotherapy - How it Helps in Relieving Pain?

Physiotherapy - How it Helps in Relieving Pain?

Physiotherapy or physical therapy focuses on enhancing mobility and treating disabilities. Physiotherapy is used commonly in case of sports injuries, partial or complete paralysis, arthritis, neurological disorders, etc. along with helping the patient regain movement and improving flexibility, physiotherapy also helps deals with back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic headaches and injury related pain. This pain may make you want to simply curl up and stay immobile but this could be detrimental to your progress. Through physical therapy, a patient can learn how to function and move safely and thus becomes stronger.

Here are a few ways physiotherapy is beneficial for pain management.

  1. It teaches breathing techniques: Physiotherapy doesn’t only address the joints and muscles of the body, but also addresses the autonomic nervous system and involuntary movements that control the functioning of the organs. By teaching a patient how to breathe correctly through opening up the chest and neck muscles, physiotherapy helps improve blood circulation that further helps relieve pain.
  2. It helps with weight managementWhen it comes to rheumatoid arthritis and knee joint pain, being overweight is one of the key factors triggering the pain. This is because of the more your weight, the more the pressure on your joints and hence the more the pain. Physiotherapy helps increase a patient’s mobility and thus aids in weight loss. This, in turn, reduces the pressure on joints and pain associated with it.
  3. It strengthens muscles: Physiotherapy deals with both the muscles affected by an injury as well as the unaffected muscles. While it helps regain control over the injured muscles, ligament and tendons it also helps strengthen the unaffected muscles. This helps them compensate for the limited functioning of the affected muscles. By strengthening the muscles, physiotherapy also makes movement easier and helps reduce pain.
  4. It helps improve posture: For people with back problems, the way you sit and stand can make a big difference to the pain experienced. Physiotherapy teaches a person how to sit and stand straight so as to support the back muscles properly.
  5. It helps determine the right equipment: Having the right shoes can play a big role in alleviating pain associated with walking. Similarly, physiotherapy can equip a person with the right equipment to make movement easier and less painful. This could be as simple as a walking stick for arthritic patients or a robotic glove for patients who have paralysed hand muscles. Furniture such as supportive mattresses and office chairs can also help alleviate back pain. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

Yes, you can go for memory tonics. Apart from that, try to meditate for 15 minutes daily in the morning and evening. Also, do not completely avoid music, you can hear it from time to time. Try concentration exercises like: take a book or a magazine and count the number of words in a single paragraph. Count them again to ensure that you have counted correctly. You can start off with one paragraph and as you get used to it, move on to counting words in two paragraphs. Then move on to counting words on the whole page. Make sure that you perform the counting mentally and only with your eyes without pointing your finger at each word. This is one of the simplest brain exercises to improve concentration. Select an inspiring word or just a simple sound and think about it in your mind, repeating it in your mind for 5 minutes. Once your mind has begun to concentrate on it easily, move on to 10 minutes of uninterrupted concentration. When you start feeling drained out just tell yourself 5 more pages and stay with the book.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the question and I do understand your problems. I do not see any nerve problems except that of anxiety disorder. You are having anxiety disorder and quite naturally you are going to face many symptoms as you mentioned here. We need to find the basic cause of your anxiety disorder and treat the cause. Anxiety disorder is usually treated with a combination of psychotherapy, life style change and relaxation therapy. If done correctly, success is for sure. Please consult a psychologist. I hope my answer is satisfatory. I am further available for clarifications. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

It is normal for you to feel tensed when your father is in icu. You have no other option except to pray the report should come as non cancerous. There is a possibility of it being due to tb or infection which are totally treatable. Talk to icu doctor as soon as the report comes. Discuss with your siblings and mother. Probably you can even talk about your tensions with your father's friends.

I think that you are having panic attacks with palpitations. You are overacting to the fear of rejection. This may have come from actually being rejected at sometime early in your life, and as well as too much authority exercised over you at home. There is normal fear for everyone about public speaking and some to interviews. But to have this level of reaction is because of poor self-image and self-esteem. One immediate thing you can do is to place your index finger on your closed lips and blow into your cheeks to build back pressure into your throat. You are to hold this for 10 seconds and within that time your heart will slow down to a lower level and make you calm immediately. You can repeat this every time you experience these panic attacks. It will help tremendously to meet with a counselor and deal with all your fears and reactions to that emotion with healthy responses. In the meantime please do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart? s fitness; meditation for the brain? s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
