It is the nature of the brain or mind to continuously produce thoughts, otherwise you will become a yogi. It is also the nature of thought to wander or shift here and there. The problem is, you are not in a position to channellize them for a good purpose. I mean, have achievable aims or targets in life which could be helpful for the betterment of youself, your family and for the world. You will realize that your thoughts are really your boons.

From child hood onwards I never live in hostel after 10th my parents put me in hostel I was not able to adjust with the hostel environment. The food and rooms are very good but some feeling arise in my mind it kills me until I came out of the hostel it do not leave. It feels like very difficult to live and fear .so I returned home and did my intermediate in my village. Later for short term course (40 days) I myself asked my parents to join in hostel to crack eamcet exam even then I feel the same feeling I can not live one day even I returned to home the next day itself. So again I did my b.tech in a small engineering college near my village (daily service just 4 kms away frm house) From 3rd year onwards I started thinking of carrier and took GATE coaching weekend batches in vijayawada (which is 35 kms apart from my village) I thought I am matured as I did my b.tech and I am a 22 years old. As I got admission in amrita university coimbatore which is 1000 kms apart from our village I prepared everything and happily joined in college but I feel the same feeling which I felt in intermediate .again I returned to home I am not able to stay in hostel in my life like others my parents are worrying about me Some times I am thinking that my life is waste I can not do anything so better commit suicide. All my friends are staying out and no one is in my village .even then I am fearing to go out .please tell me is there any solution for this problem. Please help me.

Dear lybrate-user It happens with many students and this condition is called Homesickness. Homesickness like any other vaguely communicable disease won't go away over night but it does't mean that it can not go away what it requires is your determination. Consider few things practically-- from here if you will leave the college and will do job then also same thing will happen as you have done your B.tech it is less possible to get proper job and growth near your village, you cannot run from this situation again and again ,someday you have to face this situation. I am suggesting you few things try to this-- 1.Try to make some good friends. 2.As per many studies on Homesickness those individual who have girlfriend or boyfriend overcome from homesickness easily ,so you can try this also. 3.Involve yourself in some activities or join any hobby class although in starting you will feel that you are not getting enough time for studies but it will help you in adjustment once you will adjust then you would be able to study more effectively. 4.you can plan some short trips with your friend. 5.Share your feeling with any close friend. 6.Try to avoid social contact for few days as it will divert your mind from hometown's environment ,once you will adjust you can contact them. 7.you can take help of any counsellor. Good luck.

Which kind of precaution should be taken when a person is suffering from fever along with diarrhea, vomiting, anxiety...
Hi, If diarrhea and vomiting is because of anxiety you should get treatment. At home try the following, Breathe deep. Close your eyes and take a deep breath, then another. Let each breath out slowly. Repeat as needed. Light exercise. Walking and stretching can soothe a stressed-out body or an over-excited mind. Meditate. Focus on your breathing and what’s happening around you right now. Take a time out. Distract yourself with something you enjoy, like TV, gardening, playing with pets, or a visit with friends. Visualize. Picture yourself facing and conquering fears. For example, see yourself succeeding in that meeting. Get support. Call up a sympathetic friend or family member and talk. Make a plan. Just thinking about how you’ll handle a problem can help you begin to feel in control. Eat and drink right. Alcohol can make stress and anxiety worse. Overeating can pile guilt and nausea onto an already overwrought situation. Rest up. Whether it’s stress, anxiety, or excitement taking your body on a roller-coaster ride, the unchangeable fact is you need to rest and recharge. So daydream. Take naps. And, always get a good night’s sleep.

Stress and Homeopathy

DHMS
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
Stress is the physical or emotional response of the body to an internal or external stimulus that upsets the equilibrium of the body. The contemporary lifestyle causes a lot of stress, which may have adverse impacts on your health. The stress hormones which are secreted in animals only during starvation, childbirth or torture are secreted in human beings all the time.

Natural remedies like homeopathy can be used to combat stress without harmful side effects. Since stress is responsible for several health problems and homeopathy aims at eliminating the root cause of said disorders, these remedies can cure a lot of stress related problems too. The common homeopathic medicines used to deal with stress are:

1. Arsenicum album: it is beneficial for people who are anxious, fastidious, nervous or excessively critical. It is also used for patients who exhibit tendencies of paranoia, such as arriving hours early for an appointment out of an irrational fear of being late.

2. Calcarea carbonica: it is an appropriate remedy for work related stress or burnout. Often, people feel an intense amount of pressure at their workplaces because they feel that they are constantly being watched and evaluated, and are afraid of making even minor mistakes or have strict deadlines to meet.

3. Gelsemium: gelsemium is an immediate solution to anxiety and apprehension caused by an upcoming event such as a performance, an interview or a test. Gelsemium can relieve symptoms like short-term paralysis, increased pulse rate, dizziness, nausea and indigestion.

4. Argentum nitricum: it is useful for nervous fits and impulses caused by suggestibility and extreme mental exertion.

5. Ignatia amara: this is used to deal with depression caused by stress factors like humiliation, fear, guilt and loss. People who go into shock can also be treated with ignatia amara.

6. Kali phosphoricum: it can provide relief from exhaustion due to overwork or prolonged illness. The patient becomes over sensitive, anxious and feels unable to cope with stress.

7. Natrum muriaticum: it is the treatment for symptoms like insomnia, claustrophobia, frequent headaches and pain around the eyes. It is also used to treat stress caused by isolation and dejection.

8. Pulsatilla: it is a remedy for mild or violent mood swings caused by stress. The patient may alternate between over excitement and depression within a very short period of time.

9. Sepia: it is a homeopathic medicine that is used to treat patients of stress who have developed cognitive defect and memory problems.

If he is latching on to you to this extent, there may be some serious problems. With suicide ideation, the problem is looking more and more sinister. He needs immediate help and you should take him to a counselor and perhaps accompany him because of the security he feels around you. His wife may be able to help understand other nuances that he displays around her to better understand his problem. His parents may also know developmental factors that may have contributed to this condition. He could be depressed too. If he wants to be around you so much he may have some insecurity and is finding solace and safety being near you. The counselor will help identify the primary issue and if that person recommends medication, then please have him cooperate completely. Any delay might be too late.

1. Aerobic exercise is particularly good for the brain, so choose activities that keep your blood pumping. In general, anything that is good for your heart is great for your brain.
2. Physical activities that require hand-eye coordination or complex motor skills are particularly beneficial for brain building.
3. Exercise breaks can help you get past mental fatigue and afternoon slumps. Even a short walk or a few jumping jacks can be enough to reboot your brain.

You can only experience this type of memory if you are under some kind of duress unknown to you. You should meet with a counselor to deal with the stress and you will see a remarkable difference. One way to reduce stress in an emergency is to puff up your cheek with air pressure and hold it for about ten counts. The back pressure it creates presses the back of your throat where the vagus nerve is present. Because of this pressure, it will immediately slow down your heart rate and calm you down since the vagus nerve is directly connected to the heart. If the stress comes back then repeat it until it gives up. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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. 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 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. 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. 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 sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.
