Hi mam I am depressed so that's y m not sleeping tonight .so please give me a suggestion to sleep well.
Dear lybrate-user, Just for one day depression and one night's sleeplessness, you need not consult a doctor. Please answer the following questionnaire and get back to me. Brief Patient Health Questionnaire (BPHQ) Over the last 2 weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems? Please mark as 0.Not at all 1.Less than 7 days 2.More than 7 days3. Nearly every day a. Little interest or pleasure in doing things b. Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless c. Trouble falling or staying asleep or sleeping too much d. Feeling tired or having little energy e. Poor appetite or overeating f. Feeling bad about yourself — or that you are a failure or have let yourself or your family down g. Trouble concentrating on things, such as reading the newspaper or watching television h. Moving or speaking so slowly that other people could have noticed. Or the opposite — being so fidgety or restless that you have been moving around a lot more than usual i. Thoughts that you would be better off dead or of hurting yourself in some way If you score 14 or more, probably you need suggestion of treatment. The English word depression is different from clinical depressive disorders.

Hello Doctor, I am writing this question on behalf of my dad who is 70 years old. Recently he had open heart surgery while he was @ 67 yrs old and since after that he pretend/ act very smart and active. Not sure whether it is related to post heart surgery effects. Marriage life of my dad is not that good and I have personally seen my dad and mom fighting always. I guess it had a negative impact in their sexual life as well. Recently we had two instance (Sexual Harassment) happened within our home to my relatives when they came to our home. Since it happened to our own family member, we didn't react and didn't ask him regarding the same. We would like to get higher opinion from you and also if possible could you please provide any low dose tablet, so that we can cure this in starting stage itself. We worry that if he does the same outside home to any unknow ladies in public it would be an issue. Kindly provide your valuable suggestion.

Hello Doctor,
I am writing this question on behalf of my dad who is 70 years old. Recently he had open heart surgery ...
Hi, the signs/ symptoms as seen in your dad are indicative of repressed anger and emotions owing possibly to a dissatisfied married life which probably is getting vented out in a manner as described by you. First and foremost, in order that he is not obsessively compelled to think negative and imagine stuff, it is important for you to assure him time and again that everything is perfectly ok and distract him to either watching, visualizing or doing something meaningful, relaxing and one that gives him a sense of inner strength and positive energy/ vibes. Listening to a soothing and inspiring music also helps to stay calm and relaxed. He needs to plan his day, listing out the things to be achieved and get going about them one by one. He requires to be on a healthy and balanced diet with focus on leafy greens and fresh fruits. He needs to take plenty of water daily and stay hydrated. It is important that he keeps his lifestyle streamlined and does walking/ light exercise, yoga et al in fresh air. It is good to get exposed to the early morning sunlight for 5 to 10 minutes daily. He must keep his stress levels low and stay relaxed and focused. He can enjoy his favorite yet lightweight films/ serials/ cartoons et al as he would like to watch and get some interesting yet light stories to read while he retires to bed. He can take a glass of warm milk with a pinch of fresh turmeric powder and a tsp of honey mixed to the same, at bed time. Homeopathic remedy staphysagria 12c/ 30c potency suits this particular condition. At the same time, I would also advise you to see a psychologist in person and seek independent opinion. All the very best and take care.

Dear Doctor, How can I increase my focus (concentration) on doing (uninteresting, but important) tasks? Many times I know some task is very important and needs to be done, yet I don? T find enough willpower to do it. And if I force myself to do it, then I can? T properly focus on it. Most of the books tell us to meditate and breathing exercises. I tried as described, but no help. Could you please tell me about how I can solve this (lack of focus.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Mr Rahul....as per your given details you are 27 years old.....you are matured enough to detect what is important for your life or career.....Lack of focus means you are sharing your concern to so many extra things that you cannot put your full effort on a single task when it is needed.....This can obviously ruin your career.....First stop thinking about those things from which you will gain nothing....Secondly set a goal in your life...everyone have ambition in life....set your goal for the next five years and also plan how to achieve it in next 5 years.....Thirdly boost your self-confidence.....Be social, communicate with people other than your age group...talk with them without any hesitation...Share your views with them on any topics....listen to their views with due respect....Last but surely not the least, Always believe in yourself....don't let any type of inferiority complex make you its prey

Dear Lybrate user Yes therapy has provided great results in any kind of addiction. Addiction is psychological and thus psychotherapy is supposed to be taken. I have had many clients who have got rid off their addiction. As there are some causes for any addiction and until and unless those causes are not resolved the addiction will not go away. Thats the reason many people get addicted again after they come back from deaddiction centers. You can contact me for more information.

Dear lybrate-user, May be you are prescribed Clonotril and Arpizol to treat anxiety and depression. Since you are still too anxious and depressed, it is better NOT to stop these medicines. Please consult psychiatrist again and discuss about frequent anxiety and depression. She/he may 1. Increase the dose 2. Add another drug 3. Change the tablets 4. Look for other medical, hormonal and social causes and treat them appropriately. All the best.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Take the help of some family members or common friends and resolve the issues. Everything is possible through dialogue. But certain caution needs to be exercised during this dialogue- do not begin with blaming. In a relationship both parties may fail to fulfill other's expectations. You may have some complaints, so will she - this is never ending. For a marriage to work you will both have to let go of the past and start afresh.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. For further assistance you can concern me privately Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

My exams r coming closer, so what should I do to increase my concentration level?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your age may be a factor because you are going through the fag end of your adolescence. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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. 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 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. 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 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.

I fell very depressed and sometimes I fell that I am alone. What are the suggestions for the problem doctor.
When you do not feel positively motivated and up bit, it is normal to avoid connecting to other people around you and feel lonely. One of the reason you avoid talking and being with other individuals is a feeling that they do not understand you. If this is something you have developed recently then please follow things I am going to suggest here. If it is something which has happened due to some recent change in your life and if you want to talk about it feel free to call me. And in the meanwhile try following suggestion. Chronic stress is a byproduct of our busy life style these days, which at times leads to feeling of burnout and depression. Building your resilience will help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Hi, looking at your age, height and weight it seems that you are not giving proper attention to your physical health. It may be due to your depression. I can understand your feelings. Over thinking leads to negativity. First find out the root cause of your problems by writing down your problems on a paper. Then write down the pros and cons of over thinking on that problem. You yourself will see the correct path to solve your problems. And before doing anything start loving yourself which I think you have stopped doing. All the best. :)

How can I rid off from smoking And what are the side effects of sudden stop of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You will get easily agitated and develop a short fuse. If you used a nicotine patch a lot of these withdrawal symptoms will cease.

You should concentrate on overall wellbeing by following a disciplined life ( a healthy lifestyle). Avoid all bad habits and exercise everyday as it can not only give strength and stamina but also elevate your mood. At the same time do not over indulge. Bring a balance between work and pleasure so that you can be self-confident.

Your friend is most likely undergoing lots of mental pressure. Her mother is suffering from breast cancer & she herself is not in good health. For a female, problem like abnormal hair growth in any parts of body, especially in visible parts is very stressful, difficult to accept & becomes a sentimental issue. Everything accumulating, your friend might be suffering from great emotional turmoil, with which maybe she is not able to cope with. Because of this she might have reacted the way she did today. The hair growth might be disturbing her so much that she does not want to talk about it, as more she remembers it her frustration grows more. So stay calm & try to understand the stress your friend is undergoing, putting yourself in her shoes. She may also have some misunderstanding regarding you or might have misinterpreted your concern. Deal with the situation patiently. Give time to your friend & do not linger the topic now by discussing about it further. When you meet her next time, greet her & just have routine talk without discussing anything. When she will calm down definitely she will think over it again. If it was a reaction to the stress she is undergoing, she will understand & assess this incident better when she calms down & then might talk to you about it. That time you talk your mind openly to her in a cool way & explain to her that you asked her out of concern as a well wisher & nothing else. If you now come to know that she is having some misunderstanding regarding you from either her behavior or through someone known, still do not react nor talk to her about it immediately. Let some days pass by & let the present situation calm down. After some days when she calms down & is at ease, have an open discussion with her. Initially start with a routine conversation & make her at ease. Then tell her that you wanted to discuss something with her if she does not mind. If she is relaxed & responds well, continue the conversation further & discuss this present incident. Explain to her that you asked out of concern only, & if she minds talking anything regarding her personal life, apologize honestly & assure her that you will respect her feeling & will never discuss such topics anymore. If while discussing, you find out that there were some misunderstanding, try to clear it. After discussing this serious topic, again switch back to some routine topic & ease the situation. After that politely take leave, putting an end to the conversation. Most problems have some solutions & every misunderstanding can be solved through healthy discussions.

It is true. You need to rest well with the current job. You choose a job with a work/life balance. You discuss with your hr about this. It is natural to get tired. Your efficiency also goes down.
