Hello sir, I have this weird problem where I dream In the morning all the time. Sometimes upto 6 hours a day. I make up alternate realities in my head. I dream that I'm another person with a better life Inside my head and sometimes I act like how that person would act. I unknowingly act out the conversations that" that" person is having inside my head. This is really affecting my life as I'm unable to concentrate and focus on my studies. I read somewhere that it might be maladaptive daydreaming and tried meditation but it did not help. Do I need to visit a doctor? If so what kind of Doctor? And if someone can say what kind of issue I might have It will be very helpful. Thank you for your time.

Dear lybrate-user, I think you are thinking too much. Dreams are not realities. Before concluding anything about dreams, you should know them. Day dreaming and night dreaming are two issues. Night dreaming is natural and it never lasts more than minutes. Your sleep might feel as if incomplete. That is all. The more you think about the dreams, the more you are worried. Obsession leads to worries and thereby anxiety disorder. Just leave the dreams alone and concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

Stress - Special diet for stress.

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy, MD Homoeopathic

Stress - Special diet for stress.


Stressful events cause our cortisol levels to rise.cortisol causes food cravings, and in women, those cravings tend to be strongest for carbs, especially sweet according to research.

Stress and nutrition have always been linked- it's a fact. Someone with a healthy and balanced diet is likely to be far less than those someone with a poor diet.

Healthy, nutritious food and breathing exercise are the simplest methods for relieving stress.

Food with high vitamin and minerals actively help to reduce stress levels.

Food and drinks that can trigger and aggravates stress includes.

*Tea, coffee, coca, energy drinks.
* Fast foods and takeways.
* Butter cheese.
* Meat and shellfish.
* Sugar, alcohol, soda, soft drinks, chocolate drinks.
* Beverages like soft drinks which contain no vitamins and minerals.

STRESS - Busting food how they work:

1.Bowl of oatmeal boost levels of serotonine a calming brain chemical.

2.Complex carbs- All carbs prompt the brain to make more serotonine. whole grain bread, pasta, cereals, oatmeal.

3.Spinach- Too little magnesium may trigger a headache and fatigue compounding the effect of stress.other green leafy vegetables, cooked soybeans, fillet of salmon also high in magnesium.

4.Fish- omega 3 fatty acid found in fish such as salmon and tuna can prevent surges in stress hormone and may help to protect against heart disease, depression, and PMS.

5.Black tea- Drinking black tea may help you help recover from stressful events more quickly than tea drinkers.

6.Avocados- one of the best ways to reduce high blood pressure is to get enough potassium, and half an avocado has more potassium than a medium-sized banana.

7.Almonds- vitamins E to bolster the immune system, plus B vitamins, which may make you more resilient during bouts of stress or depression.

8.Raw veggie- crunchy raw vegetables can help ease stress in a purely mechanical way. Munching celery or carrot sticks help release a clenched jaw that can ward off tension.

10. Milk- another bedtime stress buster is the time-honored glass of warm milk. Research shows that calcium eases anxiety and mood swings linked to PMS. ADIVCE TO TAKE LOW FAT AND SKIM MILK.

I always imagine that I would be film star or a cricketer hitting only sixes in a stadiam and all are watching me. Sometimes I just imagine an extraordinary personality that I can never be in real life for showing my ability that is not in me really. People say that I smiles while walking on the road. I smiles really anywhere while imagining. Is it a mental disease? Am I going to be mad? Please help me.

Try not to think about the work life when at home, keep yourself busy with your liking and hobbies while not on duty. You need to sleep properly (~8 hr per day), so prior to bed, I'd recommend a cold shower, half an hour of meditation with soothing music, try it, you can google for training video lesson for this before hand. Make sure to sleep in a completely dark room devoid of any noise. Try not to take any tea/coffee for at least 3 hrs prior to bed (practice it, it'll be worthwhile). Stay away from any kind of smoking/alcohol (if you do). If possible, early morning/evening go out for a light jogging session, you'll be feeling much better and refreshed if maintained in daily basis.

You must stop immediately. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, 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 the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat 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 chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and 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 could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Sir I am not able to concentrate on my studies for IIT ; My interest is depleting very fast for the same?

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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Hi Doctor. I am not able to clear up my confusion and figure out the aim of my life and passion. I have work experience of 10 years but I am mediocre when it comes to putting efforts. I am distracted by many things around and I spend too much time on thinking within myself.

It appears likely that you may be in the wrong profession or career. If you are not showing the interest in a particular job and not growing either, then it is quite suggestive of your being in a field that does not match your aptitude. You must meet with a career guidance counselor and do the tests for aptitude and career guidance and determine what you are actually made for. These counselors may not be willing to do a test at this late time in your life but do request them and they will if you put sufficient pressure. When this has been done you can see with the counselor’s help how to incorporate your aptitude with the current job that you are doing and make a suitable ‘adjustment’ so that various lose strings can be drawn together and a suitable job opening with your present qualification can be accommodated. Introspection is good if you are focused on a particular idea for development. If not, it will serve no purpose other than extending your problems to overwhelming levels.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.
