People with low self esteem are 80 % more likely to criticize others & make efforts to embarrass others in order to make themselves feel better, smarter & tougher. There are better ways to feel good about yourself, one of it is end your day by affectionately looking directly into eyes of your mirror image & saying "I LOVE YOU". You will see the difference in a month.

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

Phd, Mphil, MSc, Bed, BA (Clinical Psychologist and Parent Child Relationship Expert)

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.

What Does this Condition Impact Childhood?

Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.

How do you identify this condition?

Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.

They may display signs like:

- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened
- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior
- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping

Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.

For instance:

Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.

On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.

If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma.

Hi how can I will be free without any tensions in my life and that to in natural way like any yoga assans?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Hi how can I will be free without any tensions in my life and that to in natural way like any yoga assans?
To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand". This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'cantered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 1. Eagle Pose (Garudasana) garudasana This pose requires you to concentrate and focus the mind to a single point, which is an excellent stress management tool. It can also help to free up tightness in the shoulders and hips, which are common spots for emotional tension to accumulate. Steps From Tadasana, take feet hip-width apart, arms wide. Bring the right arm over the left. Bend the elbows and bring the palms together. If that’s too strong, back of the hands touch. Shift the weight to the four corners of the right foot and bend the knees a little. Lift the left thigh up and over the right thigh. If your knees are okay and you can hook the toes behind the right calf, do so; otherwise, leave the foot where it is (anatomically, not everyone can do this, so please don’t force it). Engage the core and start to sink the hips down while maintaining length in the spine. Keep your gaze firmly on your focal point and make sure the breath flows effortlessly. To come out, slowly begin to unwind and return to Tadasana. Repeat on the other side. Stress Less Tip: You need to fix your gaze on something, so how about placing an object that soothes or uplifts your spirits out in front of your mat to use as your drishti (focal point)? 2. Standing Forward Fold (Uttanasana) uttanasana Uttanasana can help quiet a busy mind, balance the nervous system, and promote feelings of calm and peace. Energetically, it helps balance the sacral chakra which when overstimulated, can contribute to fluctuating and excessive emotional energy. Steps From Tadasana, bend the knees, slightly engage the core, and hinge forward from the hips, placing the hands in front of or alongside your feet. Shift the weight onto the balls of your feet and feel the sit bones lifting up toward the ceiling. For tight hamstrings, you can keep the knees bent to protect the lower back. Otherwise, lengthen through the backs of the legs while keeping the weight in the balls of the feet. Take hold of each elbow with the opposite hand and soften around the eyes, jaw, neck, head, and mind. You can hold for a few breaths, or longer if you feel comfortable. If you have low blood pressure, take your time coming out of the pose. Stress Less Tip: Imagine your worries literally melting away from the top of your head, absorbed by the ground beneath you. **Uttanasana is contraindicative for back pain, hamstring injuries, glaucoma, and high blood pressure. A common side effect of stress is blood pressure issues, so consult your doctor first or skip this pose altogether if you have any concerns.

Dear lybrate-user. From the given description it seems that the girl is happy being with you. I suggest this just like this. Keep the happiness intact. Be with her, interact with her. Don't talk about marriage now. You can propose when you had won her heart. Take care.

What should one do who is suffering from severe depression for 18 years and finding his surrounding meaningless, gloomy, goal-less, excitement-less, unsuccessful & alone; due to the negligency, unpardonable & life-spoiling mistakes, less-co-operation & misguidance; in spite of showing so much talent & possibility during his teen-age?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, 18 years is a long time for depression and it will definitely not feel good. But that is an obvious statement, what is not is the fact that you must always combine medication with therapy. It is so much better and you would have developed a lot of coping mechanisms by now and may have been able to conduct yourself to the point of even enjoying life to a certain extent. Even now it is not too late, although it might be a little more difficult. Nature and the way we have been made, have fortunately built-in certain structures that let us live close to normal lives, especially up to our teens. After that, if the little signs that there is some problem were not noticed and dealt with, then the issues will come up for the last time seeking a resolution in late adolescence. But for some reason it was not handled well or in time, and therefore this situation where it has now become a permanent negative trait that has to be dealt with more aggressively. Now it is time to seek counseling in tandem with the medication; and you are to keep with the counseling until there is a resolution. Be cooperative and follow all the directives and requirements and you will see a gradual but sure improvement. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc: exactly like you described. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. Don? t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Now go out there and just do it: nothing is too late in life. Leave the past and don? t relate to the future too much: the present is where your solutions are and you should stay focused in the here and now, always.

Ice it, then heat it. Apply ice packs during the first two days to bring down swelling. Then use heat—warm baths or a heating pad (on a medium or low setting)—to ease pain and stimulate blood flow. He should also take rest.

World Autism Awareness Day 2015

World Autism Awareness Day aims to increase people's awareness about people, especially children, with autism. The day often features educational events for teachers, health care workers and parents, as well as exhibitions showcasing work created by children with autism.

Autism is a developmental disability that remains with a person for his or her whole life. This condition affects the brain's functions. The first signs usually appear before a child is three years old. People with autism often:

Find social interaction difficult.
Have problems with verbal and non-verbal communication.
Demonstrate restrictive and repetitive behavior.
Have a limited set of interests and activities.

Autism affects girls and boys of all races and in all geographic regions and has a large impact on children, their families, communities and societies
Caring for and educating children and young people with this condition places challenges on health care, education and training programs.

Hello sir I have bad habit of smoking.

MD-Psychiatry, MBBS, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Certificate in Forensic Psychology
Psychiatrist,
Hello, smoking is one of the easiest & one of the most difficult habits to break because 1. Quitting cigarettes does not cause any immediate harm 2. Cigarettes are so easily available that one does succumbs into temptation of smoking just 1 more before stopping altogether. Regarding your question, easy way is decide a quit date 1 week from now & reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke to half from today. Secondly, you can purchase nicotex/quitsure park & suck type nicotine chewing gums to take care of your cigarette craving & substitute them for cigarettes. In addition, there are medications which help to reduce craving & get rid of smoking addiction. If you need them, inform me after 1 week for next plan of action. Good luck.
