Sir / Ma'am, I have fallen in love for a girl from 2years since. She treats me as a good friend but doesn't come into relationship because she says that she doesn't like these things because she was once betrayed or she doesn't like me, don't know. Day & night her thoughts come into my mind. I can't live without thinking of her. Please suggest me what should I do. I want her as my life partner. Please help, I'm very much depressed.

Let everything be so. Do not take any step further in your love affair. If you achieve something in your career life, in other words, if you prepare yourself to stand on your own, she will automatically come to you. Explain her about your career goal, and to maintain your relationship intact until then. She will really be impressed by you.

Since the time I have got married. My wife does not want me to stay with my other family members. How should I convince her for the same?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you mean she does not want you to visit with them, then it is not right. But if she does not want you to stay with them, meaning to live with them, then she is right. Once you marry, you become one unit, and the more healthy distance you maintain with relatives or friends, it is better. ?Familiarity breeds contempt, and over time small things can become aggravating. You need your privacy and so do your folks. You must also remember that to your wife, your family is in-laws. There are always issues that crop up on both sides. Even for you to stay in your in-laws? place for long may become very uncomfortable. Of course in India, the son-in-law is ?god? and is treated like one and so you may not feel it as much as a woman. You can be a lot freer with your folks than your spouse. Why would you want her to go through such difficulty? Another thing I have noticed is that sons do not want to cut off the apron strings from their mothers in particular, as a result of which there are many games played out on both sides. For these reasons and more, live by yourselves and visit your folk occasionally.

Since six months I have become very short tempered. Get annoyed so early. Want to come out of this what should I do.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

You seem to have had a recent change in your behaviour since last 6 months. Essay irritability, anger outbursts, being short tempered etc can be signs of underlying unresolved stress or a mood disorder. You should better consult a psychiatrist with complete details of your problem so that a definitive diagnosis can be reached and a management can be planned for you. You may consult me online for any further queries and assistance.

Improve your concentration with few tips and tricks!

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Improve your concentration with few tips and tricks!

Concentration depends upon the ability to focus. Concentration is basically concerned with disciplining your mind to improve focus. However, your mind will tend to resist your efforts as it loves its own freedom. By practicing 10 to 15 minutes of exercises to improve concentration on a daily basis, you will be able to train and discipline your mind, and hence improve your concentration.

Before proceeding to do these exercises, there is a need to set the mood for it. First of all, you will have to find a place where you can be alone without any disturbance. You can sit cross legged on the floor or on a chair with your spine erect. Take a few deep breaths and then relax your body to direct your attention to it. To start off, you can practice these exercises for 10 minutes and then lengthen the time to 15 minutes after a few weeks of training.

  1. Exercise 1: 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.
  2. Exercise 2: Another exercise to increase concentration is count backwards in your mind from hundred to one. Once you have mastered this, move on to counting backwards from hundred to one but this time skipping three numbers such as 100, 97, 94, 91, 88 etc.
  3. Exercise 3: 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.

Care to share.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i.e. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I am addicted to chewing tobacco I want to know how I can release my addiction give me few tips.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is Hans and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit these habits. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Both are tobacco products and will therefore have addictive components to them. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have two products which are both conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco 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 consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to 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 tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming Hans. 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.

How to come up from depression. Exams are on head. Had just breakup from true love. Want to overcome from it.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
This is unfortunate that you had a breakup before exams.Yet a true fact. If you don't do well in exams what are the possible consequences and if they are not acceptable, then what do you do to do well in your exams? Some questions for you to answer. Regarding the depression, keep yourself occupied with studies, exercising, relaxing, friends, positive thinking, a healthy diet etc which will help you to do better in exams. If you can wait till after the exams, then do visit a counsellor who will guide you to overcome the depression too. Take care.

He thinks his voice is like a female. Any one recognize him as female over the phone and he has mind set of being female personality's in his body. He is not depressed about this. And avoiding marriage as marriage has no sense to him.

Hi lybrate-user, I am not sure if it will be convincing for you and I might be wrong here too. But this is what I think it is. It looks like there is need to be liberal about gender identity. Female like voice can be corrected with voice therapy. But a package of personalities like a female is difficult to deal with. Meet the family physician and he/she will be able to guide in a better way. Acceptance is required from the family. Be cautious about what you talk to him. Don't hurt his feeling. Physical damage will heal but mental damage, specifically something like this would harm everybody.

It is very appreciable that you have your own business at this young age. At your age, it is likely that you might take undue risks or take impulsive decisions which might land you in financial trouble. To avoid this make a systematic plan for you daily activities related to business, have a goal for every month and try to achieve it. Most importantly have a realistic goal. Take small and firm steps towards your goal. Also have some contingency plans ready, in case there is any set back. Please remember there will be set backs in life, don't lose courage, take situations head on, try to explore more options to come out of a tricky situations. Understand your capacities and take risks or burden accordingly. If required seek advice from experienced elders at home.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Good Afternoon ~ Social Anxiety Disorder is the extreme fear of being scrutinized and judged by others in social or performance situations: Social anxiety disorder can wreak havoc on the lives of those who suffer from it. This disorder is not simply shyness that has been inappropriately medicalized. Although they recognize that the fear is excessive and unreasonable, people with social anxiety disorder feel powerless against their anxiety. They are terrified they will humiliate or embarrass themselves. Symptoms may be so extreme that they disrupt daily life. People with this disorder, also called social phobia, may have few or no social or romantic relationships, making them feel powerless, alone, or even ashamed. It needs to be appropriately treated with medications and I will be able to help. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Stress can foil memory and concentration. The distraction it leads to will not allow focus on a particular topic or subject. So locate the stressor and deal with it soon to recover good memory. It will be easier to work with a counselor on the emotions that are causing the stress, which I would imagine has a lot to do with fear. Fear of the exams can also cause this panic which wipes out your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. In the meantime do some of the following: 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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.

I want to quit smoking. I ve started smoking a year ago. Since new year I am trying to quit it. I can control it for a week but after a week I can't control myself and I go and smoke a cigarette. I want to quit it completely. What do I do?

General Physician, Mumbai
Smoking is toxic to your body, mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit, the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga and chant the names of god who you have faith in. It has been scientifically proved that by doing yoga and chanting, the habit of smoking can be stopped. By chanting with love, soon you would be swimming in an ocean of pleasure which is million times greater than flickering pleasure of intoxicants like tobacco, nicotine etc, and automatically the attraction to the low taste of smoking would stop.

It means, your antidepressants haven't been properly tailored for your as a person. Discuss these issues with your psychiatrist, and get the antidepressant dose or type revised to suit you, and for best functionality. Antidepressants vary on sedation quality, and different individuals also respond differently to them. But you need 7-9 hours, average 8 hours refreshing sleeper day. So discuss and get the prescription revised. All the best,
