Why do I get the "final destination" feeling when the flight sit in takes off? Do movies really play a part in a person's mind psychologically?

Dear Lybrate user. This is just fear factor. Movies are able to influence the psychological thought pattern of a person. But you must have noticed the intensity of the feeling comes down with each passing flight. Don't worry. This "final destination" feeling will calm down after some time. Take care.

I am 39 years old. I have too much of work stress. Due to which I feel tightness in my chest and heavy brain. How to reduce my stress?

I am 39 years old. I have too much of work stress. Due to which I feel tightness in my chest and heavy brain. How to ...
There are many ways to relieve stress; some are scientifically proven while others are not. I can give you some idea regarding the proven methods of stress reduction. You will have read this with patience and understanding. In the present day world, stress is ubiquitous. It is said that the only person who is free of stress is a dead person! we all experience stress to varying extents; some of us manage it well while others, not so well. Thus stress management is a skill of paramount importance for all of us to learn and implement. So how do we manage stress? numerous methods have been proposed by experts and laypersons alike. But what works and what does not? do many of the popular methods actually work? can many of these methods stand the test of scientific efficacy evaluation? below we shall discuss those techniques that have been scientifically proven to be effective in a number of research studies. It is important to understand that the following 5 techniques are to be used together as each of these complement one another. Some of these might work well for some while not so well for others and vice versa. Essentially, they include a three pronged approach: changing the situation, changing the way we see the situation and changing the way our body responds to the situation. Changing the way one views the situation self monitoring: we are human beings, the most evolved, most complex and most intellectually advanced organisms on the planet. Thus, the way we process external stimuli at an intellectual level plays an important role in whether or not stress is generated. But before we intervene, we need to understand how we think, how we process data and what our thoughts are. This is the goal of self monitoring. Without going into the technical details, self monitoring basically involves observing and recording what our thoughts are, how we view a situation especially when we feel stressed, sad or anxious but also when we are feeling happy and relieved. Although it appears like a mere assessment, it can sometimes be healing too. When one observes oneself closely, errors become apparent and many times changes occur spontaneously without actually having to intervene. Cognitive restructuring: once one's thoughts and thinking patterns are analyzed, it is time to intervene expertly. The human brain is constantly trying to simplify the vast amount of data that is being continually thrown at us. In the vast majority of the situations, such a simplification is accurate and adaptive, but sometimes they are erroneous. In persons that are easily stressed out, there is a high rate of such erroneous conclusions. Changing the situation time management: besides making changes to the way we see the situation, it is also important many a time to change the situation itself. Time management and problem solving are the key elements in this endeavor. The key to managing time is to make a commitment to follow what one has decided. These decisions should be recorded in writing in a diary. The decision should be detailed and made after giving a proper thought. For instance, preparing a time table is an important way of managing time. But there are certain important points to keep in mind while preparing a timetable. Very often, timetables reflect extremes of thinking; some timetables are over ambitious, while others are half-hearted while still others are lax. It is important to prepare a time table that is reasonable and make a commitment to follow it. Problem solving: this is the other method of making a decisive change to one's environment. So what are the steps of problem solving? first identify the exact problem. Second generate all possible solutions without bias, without regard to practicality and without regard to likelihood of succeeding (brainstorming). It is well known that the best solution very often is the one, that at the face of it, might have seemed unsuitable or ineffective. Once all possibilities have been explored, rate the solutions in terms of practicability, logistics and likelihood of succeeding. After a careful evaluation of the ratings, decide upon the solution and take action. Do not procrastinate! changing the way one's body reacts to a situation relaxation techniques: now that we have changed the world around us and the way we view the world, it is time to change the way our body reacts to stress. This is where relaxation techniques are useful. Stress results in a number of bodily changes such as palpitations, muscle tension, headaches, fidgeting and so on, that reinforces stress. Relaxation techniques such as progressive muscular relaxation, deep breathing, yoga, pranayam, relaxing music can be useful. Friends, whether a bridge is able to hold itself when a train passes through it depends on the strength of the bridge and the weight of the train. So too whether we are able to handle stress depends on the amount of stress that we are faced with and how strong we are. Our strength in turn is dependent on the skills that we possess. The techniques outlined above, target all aspects of this stress machinery for maximal benefit. What's more, these techniques have been evaluated in scientific studies and found to reduce a number of stress related disorders such as heart conditions. So it is time all of us practiced at least some of these techniques!

Hello, I'm 25 year old working women. My parents want me to get married and are working on it. I feel like I'm not ready yet. I feel like I need some more time. I tried telling this to my parents, but they say, "as per your age you r ready and once yu get married everything will b fine. Sometimes I feel my parents are correct and sometimes I feel if I listen to them I'm gonna spoil my life and even my partner's life. Due to immense pressure by my parents and over thinking. I've found myself being moody and irritated etc. I wanna control all this. Pls help Thank you.

Its very common now a days neither your parents are wrong nor you are wrong ,its correct that 25 is the right age for marriage but if still you are not ready then its better that you wait for 1 year and during this time you can makeup your mind for this. Marriage is life time commitment so its decision should not be taken in hurry or in someone's pressure. You can also take help of any professional regarding this .And if still this condition continues then its better that you should avoid this, by thinking on this topic you will gain nothing ,only your frustration level will increase and it will adversely effect your working capacity .share all this with any good friend then you will feel relax. Take care.

Hello sir, am very much worried about my friend. His age is 25 and he is preparing for IAS. Earlier he was doing job ...
He is stressed but not yet depressed. However if he neglects himself he may become depressed. The IAS can be quite a taxing exam and he may be losing confidence and is therefore becoming very stressed. He needs to meet with a counselor without delay. If it is fear then that person will certainly be able to help him handle it appropriately and come out of his distress. He would anyway need to follow a regular exercise regimen, eat healthily, and sleep well. These three are essential for a normal person and more so for him facing a tough exam. If he is too unprepared for the exams and that is the reason for the stress, advise him to defer the exam to next year and get more organized in his preparation. He may be determined to do it this year but if the circumstances are tough, it is advisable to do it the following year. In fact he could have a whole year for preparation. If he is still determined, he needs counseling very badly.

Brain Size and Intelligence - Are the Two Related?

Brain Size and Intelligence - Are the Two Related?

When it comes to the brain and IQ, is bigger 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 connection in a normal manner. On the other hand, children and adolescents who suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD show sign 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 brain: 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 brain 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 doctor and ask a free question.

Stress - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Stress - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Feeling stressed out? Don’t reach for the pills just yet; there is a better option out there. Almost all conventional methods of treatment come with side effects, no matter how effective they are. Why not opt for an equally effective method, but without side effects, yes you heard it right! Homeopathy is a method of treatment that is effective and free from side effects.

Here are some homeopathic remedies that can help you de-stress:

1. Be active: Feeling stressed of late? Time to get your running shoes on. Research proves that exercise is one of the best remedies for stress, activities such as running and swimming release ‘endorphins’ in the system, which uplift your mood. So go for an early morning jog or a late evening swim, whatever suits you just make sure that you get some exercise on a regular basis.

2. Diet: Stress can result from an improper diet where the body is not well nourished. The body needs its share of various vitamins and minerals to function optimally. So it is important to eat a well balanced meal and avoid eating junk food. Eating unhealthy food can cause reactions in the body that lead to various diseases.

3. Be connected: Being connected does not mean being connected on social media, rather forming and nurturing ‘people to people’ connections. Talk to people, getting involved in team activities and participating in various sports. Form meaningful relationships with others so that you have someone to listen to you when you feel weary and low. Staying isolated can cause symptoms of stress to aggravate.

4. Start a hobby: If you don’t already have one, spend some time doing things that give you pleasure. It can be something that gives you a sense of accomplishment. Doing such activities will keep your mind active and reduce stress levels.

5. Medications: Apart from the above, homeopathy has medications such as Nux Vomica which is used to reduce anger and impatience. For people who are stressed due to overwork, Kali Phos is an effective remedy. In case of prolonged grief such as the one resulting from a sudden demise in the family, Natrum Mur and Ignatia are advised. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

My son has very less concentration and memory. how to improve it? Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If he is in his teens, there will be the influences of hormones that must be factored in. Due to his age I suspect that he is going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects him in three ways quite unknown to him or to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, he will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and he will have no control over it. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact his memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But he may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that his 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. Let him do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. He should 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. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he 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 he gets bored, let him study by writing. If he repeats learning at least five to seven times, he will apparently remember for a longer time. He should sit comfortably but 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 the 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 his teacher will be able to guide him with. If home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.
