Hi lybrate-user, your head ache is only due to your over thinking. You are just 21 you can can job only if you are cool n calm. Donot think excessively about the situation. Try to meditate daily for 15 min. Donot stay alone and you ll over come the situation.

Dear user. I can understand. Don't panic. Obsesive compulsive disorder is Excessive thoughts (obsessions) that lead to repetitive behaviours (compulsions). Obsessive-compulsive disorder is characterised by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead to compulsive behaviours. OCD often centres on themes such as a fear of germs or the need to arrange objects in a specific manner. Symptoms usually begin gradually and vary throughout life. Treatment includes talk therapy, medication or both. I suggest online psychotherapy. Take care.

I am addicted to watch porn. I really want to avoid that but can't control myself. How to avoid that?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there, Signs and Symptoms of Porn Addiction Excessive viewing of pornography. The definition of “excessive” depends on what you consider healthy, or it is the point at which pornography starts to have a negative impact on some aspect of your (or someone else’s) life. Watching pornography interferes with normal daily behavior or responsibilities. More time spent watching pornography, or searching for more stimulating types of pornography, is needed to get you aroused or to climax, i. E. You develop a tolerance. There is a sense of emotional distress, or feeling of withdrawal, when porn use is stopped. Continued use pornography despite serious consequences (e. G. Loss of relationship or job, contraction of a sexually transmitted disease or “STD”). Compulsive masturbating. Sexual dysfunction (e. G. Impotence, premature ejaculation). Use of pornography negatively affects your relationships, for example: It is more difficult to become aroused by your partner. Romantic or sexual behavior between you and your partner changes (e. G. Becomes more aggressive, dominant, or emotionally disconnected). You watch porn as a way to alter your mood (e. G. Obtain a “high”) or avoid other unpleasant feelings, like anxiety or depression. What Causes Porn Addiction? Porn addiction, like other substances or “things” that people can become addicted to, can be understood through principles of “operant conditioning.” This is where a certain behavior, watching porn in this case, is “reinforced,” or rewarded, which in turn makes you want to do it again (and again). Lots of different things can be reinforcing, and thus influence our behavior, but porn can be especially reinforcing because the reward taps into a very basic instinctual drive—sex. Therefore, it is very easy to become addicted to porn—it is accessing a fundamental (and very enjoyable) natural drive. It is also much easier to obtain than going out and finding a “mate” to fulfill this drive. The problem occurs when seeking sexual pleasure becomes excessive, impulsive, or comes at the expense of other valued behaviors. Then we might say that one has a porn addiction. Other Factors Influencing Porn Addiction Biological You may have a genetic predisposition to impulsivity, emotion dysregulation, or sensation-seeking behavior. You may have a predisposition to other characteristics that are associated with sexual addiction, like anxiety or depression. As you might expect, higher levels of sex hormones like testosterone or estrogen can affect libido. If you are inclined towards impulsive behavior and have high levels of sex-related hormones, you may be more likely to engage in excessive or compulsive porn watching. Psychological Early-life environmental factors, including adverse events like abuse or exposure to sexual content, can contribute to some of the underlying traits involved in porn addiction behaviors. Mental health: Anxiety. Depression. Personality disorders. Poor impulse control. Performance anxiety. Other mental health issues might contribute to porn addiction behaviors. Social Rejection in relationships and social circles can lead to other, less healthy ways to find sexual gratification. Social isolation: Not only does social isolation increase one’s likelihood of seeking inappropriate ways of being sexually gratified, it also leads to a host of other problems—like depression and physical maladies—that can contribute to porn addictions or unhealthy sex behaviors. Peer influence: If others around you are doing something, you are more likely to do it, too. Having a friend, or a group of friends, for example, who engage in excessive porn viewing can influence your behavior. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

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.

I am getting tensed. Get irritated on anything. I feel whatever is told to by any one even so close to me is all wrong and talkbalwas end up in arguments and fighting. What is the reason forbthid be how be can it be solved

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Everyone thinks differently and have different opinions. If you are feeling that generally people don't agree with you/ they should always agree with you, then irritation etc will occur. Talking without blaming, listening to others, putting your point across without expecting them to agree with you, can reduce friction to some extent. You also need to know how others perceive you as you see them wrong and talking bakwas all the time. What do you think of them when they argue with you? It is indeed difficult if there are fights all the time. What did you do differently, when you didn't fight once and there was harmony between you people. Humans need to live in harmonious surroundings to excel in life and have meaningful relationships. When you have peace within you, you will be happy, accepting and loving outside with people. A counsellor will help you to understand what are some of your issues and what values guide you through your life. It is a self discovery journey which is very beneficial in enhancing the quality of your relationships.

The masturbation is not the reason, though worrying about its effects itself can be trouble enough to disturb you from concentration. Yes, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you have just been through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it, like the masturbation. 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 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

I am a 40 year old male. I am experiencing extreme mood swings / nervousness which last from 1 to 3 months. It has negatively effected my work and family life. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You need to visit a psychiatrist immediately. This sounds like a serious condition, and you may be able to stave off worse developments if you act fast. Apart from the medication you must also seek help from a counselor for a good length of time. In the counseling you will learn a lot of skills and techniques to cope with the everyday challenges of life. If it turns out to be a pathological condition there is much work to be done and your cooperation is in your best interest. Do not self-regulate your medication, and comply with all the advice and prescriptions of the concerned doctors. When the mood swings to a better state, you may deceive yourself by thinking that you can now manage without help. That is a typical danger with this condition. Do not succumb to that belief and trust the professional. You could, if you want, seek a second opinion just for your curiosity.

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 you are still studying. 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.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
If you have doubt in your mind regarding your diagnosis, get yourself re-evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make the proper diagnosis based on your mental status examination & psychological test like Psycho-diagnostic evaluation. & if you are diagnosed to be suffering from a mental disorder, it will be best for you to accept the fact that you are suffering from the disorder, stay under regular supervision of your attending doctor, & adhere to treatment. Educate yourself adequately regarding the diagnosed illness, its symptoms etc. & if any doubt regarding the illness or its treatment come to your mind, always discuss with your attending doctor &/or family member, & do not take any decision alone. There are treatments available for mental disorders & a person with such disorders can lead a normal life on treatment. Along with, lead an active life, eat healthy diet, sleep adequately & stay away from substances of abuse like alcohol, tobacco etc. & stay positive about life. If it is difficult for you to accept the illness or you are not able to cope with it, then you can go for counseling sessions.

Hi lybrate-user! You need to know how you have to behave to make him believe that you really love him. Psychologist should actually know what Behavior hurted him to the extent that he lost faith in you. If you need that bond between both should become stronger you need to conVince him by proofing him so much, but it is a little tiring only. You need to be affectionate, ready to be calm even if situations hurt you, try to send greetings and gifts with sorry messages and expression of love. If unable to convince her back to me online so that I can work with you and assist you to completely overcome this problem completely. Feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. Take care. With regards,

Find out distractions and remove them from your study area. While studying mention on a paper how many times you are getting distracted. Then try to focus again on the topic. As soon as you get that your mind is going somewhere else just come back to study. If you practice it you will be able to overcome it.
