I have recently started with my job, 2 months back and in the starting I was stressed because of work so I wasn't able to sleep at nights but now from last 15 days I am not stressed because of work but still I am not able to have a relaxed sleep. The whole night, I keep working in my dreams, I mean I keep doing the same work which I do in office and when I wake up I do not remember much about it and I feel tired. I get up minimum 7-10 times at night to see the timing. I tried listening to meditation music before sleeping but nothing is helping.

You are definitely under some stress and it si probably related to your work. It may settle on its own over time. But not getting enough sleep is bad medicine. So I suggest you do some of the following even if you have tried some of them: The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Sir, I want to stop smoking please suggest me. And when I was thinking not to smoke. I cant control my self and I am going to sleep.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Thanks for asking your query at this forum. I want to educate you a little about addiction of smoking. Smoking provides instant nicotine to the body which is a potent neuro-activator. It gives a pleasurable kick to mind and thus a person wants to smoke again and again. There is a strong desire (craving) to smoke if person abstain from it for few hours/days. Person may have some discontinuation symptoms in the form of restlessness, anxiety, irritability etc. Due to craving and discontinuation symptoms a person can not easily discontinue smoking. You should gradually reduce the frequency of smoking. You may try throwing cigarette in half before finishing, so as to reduce the amount of nicotine. You may also take help of psychiatrist who may prescribe you few medicines for de-addiction like nicotine lozenges/chewing gums, tab champix etc to reduce the habit of smoking gradually. I wish you all the best.

Hi my name is Rahul and I smoke marijuana from 3 years. Can you please help me to leave it. Also tell me the effect of marijuana on lungs.

DNB (PSYCHIATRY), DPM, MBBS,
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
Marijuana itself has no significant effect on lungs but it is smoked with tobacco which has it's own repercussions. Otherwise, marijuana affects neurochemicals and affects thinking and perception and can lead to mood disturbance, anxiety, obsessions and even psychosis. There is treatment available for cannabis abuse.

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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Premature ejaculation (pe) occurs when men cannot control semen flow or have excessive sensitivity. So, before treatment, you should precisely diagnose the cause of your problem. It is easily curable- but needs time. Usually most cases respond to sex therapy and exercises and using few simple tips. So, e men may need drug to cure this. Erectile dysfunction (ed) should never be ignored. It can even represent early stage of heart disease or diabetes or some other severe disease. So, instead of going to medicine shop to buy medicines and taking risks, consult doctor so that the cause can be found out and can be treated properly to give you complete cure. At the same time it is important to boost up your confidence.

Dear lybrate-user, mobile phone addiction is almost equivalent to other addictions. The pleasure center of your brain gets activated and it asks you for more and more. You need to find another alternative activity which gives you more pleasure than mobile phone. Engaging in entertainment, games etc can give you more pleasure.

I am a 18 old male and have low memory power for last 3 months. What should I do.?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. For social anxiety disorder, hand shaking is enough. There may not be any other symptoms like nervousness or fear. Social anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Good Afternoon ~ Being chronically ill and having to take medications for the same or having to depend on doctor visits or other persons in the family is quite a challenge and I am so very glad that you have brought this issue up on this forum. Depression can be caused by having long term or chronic illnesses that are treated and controlled. Treatment of the depression is essential in the recovery of whatever medical problem you have that you are worried about always and encourage you to speak with your primary care giver to be able to get a referral to a psychiatrist.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. E cigarette is also dangerous as compared to normal cigarette. Both contains nicotine, the agent which is responsible for addiction. Therefore, I suggest you to quit both. Cigarette contains more than 4000 chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. Deaddiction therapy can be a success only when you have the will power. I suggest online counseling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You cannot accept his present behavior. This happens just because you are in love with him. You got cheated and your mind could not accept the cheating. Accepting is the key. Inability to accept and refusal to accept are two different attitudes. You know there is no reversal to this situation. You have to take revenge. Forget him, marry another person, live well and show your boy friend that you are capable and can live without him. You can do it. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Social phobia is a condition where one has persistent fear of social situations. It is a treatable condition. First of all, complete evaluation will be needed for confirming the diagnosis. Accordingly treatment can be initiated. The treatment of social phobia will include medications and psychotherapy sessions. You should consult a psychiatrist for getting yourself evaluated and treated. I do hope that with treatment, you are able to overcome your social anxiety. Best wishes.

It is common for ambitious people to experience such feelings before major exams. However it is very important for you to socialise more and to keep yourself in company of others otherwise staying alone will further give rise to such symptoms. Exercise and maintain a healthy diet and stay away from fatty and junk food.
