Sometimes I have a problem of anxiety I am deciding to take exiten tablet Its right decision.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Sometimes I have a problem of anxiety
I am deciding to take exiten tablet
Its right decision.
Before using medicines for anxiety, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps,

How to improve my knowledge and memory power.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You can increase your knowledge by the fastest way known to man, by reading. Developing your reading speed will give you access to a world full of books and internet that one can absorb huge amount of information in a matter of hours. I hope you are a rapid reader. Even if you are not, reading still remains the best way of acquiring knowledge. Retaining that information is the role of memory, and that is a different ball game altogether. For which you need to do 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, 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.

Panic attacks involve sudden feelings of terror that strike without warning. These episode can occur at any time, even during sleep. People with this disorder may believe that they are having a heart attack or they are dying, going crazy or something bad going to happen.

You are seemingly stressed and to me it sounds like there could be unresolved anger. I recommend that you meet with a counselor who will help you sort this out. In the meantime follow some of these recommendations to improve concentration: 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.

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.

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.

Give some tips to quit smoking?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath,
The first step of quitting any habit is deciding to quit it and second and most important step is be determine on first step. Now do it step by step one cigarette per week. And the number of cigarette you are taking per day within those number of weeks you will quit this habit for sure. Worst way is trying to quit suddenly all together. Good luck.

You are going to feel isolated like this for some time as one always keeps comparing delhi with bombay. Once you realise that apples cant be compared with oranges, your issue would start resolving. Also in mumbai one has to take an initiative in introducing ourselves to people and then you would surely get the returns.

I have lot of Determination Problem, I can't do anything neither study nor exercise how should I increase my determination?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First you need to make a good decision. This is a very important skill to develop early in life as you will be under a lot of pressure to make decisions all through your life. To make good decisions you must first get adequate information about the subject in question. You must also reduce your stress around emotions and stabilise yourself before venturing to make decisions. There is a prioritizing model developed by Dr, Steven Covey and that is very helpful in determining certain markers to aid in deciphering on the basis of urgency and importance. It can be accessed from his book, 'The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People' Once a decision is made and it is good, yoru determination will be pushed by the motivation that will naturally ensue. At your age there may be hormonal influences also that can confuse you. In that case, you can seek the help of a wise person to help you make these important decisions.

What Is Parental Depression? How to Support Each Other?

Mother and Child Care, Panchkula
What Is Parental Depression? How to Support Each Other?

Parental Depression is an aspect which affects the innocent child, right from the time it is in the mother's womb.

Maternal depression could be due to various reasons ranging from familial disharmony to poor health. Unfortunately, a depressed mother's pessimistic thoughts could pass on to the pure soul inside her. So the effect starts in utero. After birth, she may be careless and negligent towards a child whose most important requirement is love. And children of these mothers become victims of behavioral and cognitive problems and poor school performers. They may also acquire the illness of depression eventually.

A depressed father will display stress and agitation instead of engaging the young minds in interesting learning or other activities.

Hence, before stepping into parenthood, it's important to be mentally fit and not just physically healthy. Exercise and meditation is of great help and of course a happy home environment.

Supporting each other is the key to getting things on track again.

  • Talk to your spouse: Chat with your spouse, showing affection, doing things with them and encouraging them to get out of the house are important.
  • Appreciate her but respect your family: Help her see that the family needs her and appreciates that she is expecting. While doing the same ensure that you respect the feelings of your family members.
  • Opt for specialist care: Offer to see a therapist and encourage her to take medications. Getting the help of an expert helps get guidance to handle difficult situations.
  • Be emotionally present with her: Go with her to as many antenatal checkups as you can, and make sure you are there for the ultrasound scans. This encourages a woman and gives her the satisfaction that her partner is involved.
  • Compliment her and pay attention to her: Many women find it difficult to cope with the changes in their body during pregnancy. She may be worried about stretch marks, concerned about weight gain or just be feeling not much like her old self. Make sure to compliment her and let her know how much you love her.
  • Be a shoulder for her to cry on: Listen to all of her concerns, and offer her the reassurance and support she really needs.
  • Be there to help: After the birth, your partner will need time to recover. She will be exhausted, sore and hormonal, and will be relying on you for support. Help with the baby, and do as much as you can.

Hi, Welcome to lyberate. I understood your problem. You most likely have uti along with vaginal infection. You need oral antibiotic treatment. You can also be prescribed local vaginal pessaries, in case you are sexually active. Drink plenty of water, around 10-12 glasses daily to wash out the infection. Before I prescribe any medication please get a urine routine and microscopy and urine culture done. Let me know the results soon so that I can help you. All the best. Hope you get better soon.

I hope you are having a relxing sleep at night. Follow simple suggetsions - donot study on the bed, try reading on a chair and table - if you donot mind, try keeping a pen in hand to write down things as notes to be used later on. - when feeling sleepy, revise something you already read. - take a hot water bath before you start studying - take a beak of 20 min after every 40-45 min spell of studying. If this is not working then you might need some medications to keep you focused and awake. Get back to me in that case.

Why some children are fear to go school? Is it rue. How to prevent it. Is this serious.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Why some children are fear to go school? Is it rue. How to prevent it. Is this serious.
Children grow from dependence to independence pretty early in life nowadays. In the olden days children were not allowed into school before 5 years of age. Now it is not the case. After having a lovely dependent relationship with mom, children are somewhat prepared to go to school but it is not the case in every child's home life. If the child has not been prepared early to meet other people and feel comfortable about it, they will have a problem going to school. Also to meet so many other children and adults in a school atmosphere is quite intimidating, even if you are prepared for the same. Even if they are afraid, they must overcome that fear by making them attend school. It is not a serious flaw when a child feels fear about joining school unless it is a never ending problem. Then there is a social development problem and some measures may be used to gently wean the child away from that fear by allowing the mother to stay around in school for a few days to give the child the confidence. The best thing to do is to prepare the child when she is at home by socializing with other families, friends, relatives etc. both by inviting them over and visiting them often: the child will get exposure to other people and slowly get familiar with mixing with others. Also the school atmosphere can be made more conducive to be child-friendly and offer a lot of playthings around to distract the child and make them more comfortable: today's schools are focusing on this aspect a lot. Small classes are better than large ones. This is a very important growth for children in their attempt to become independent. There is also the great affect of the 'fear of change', which we as adults suffer from also. So you can imagine a child making its first steps in that direction, and how difficult it can be. Just be an enabler if your child is going through a phase like this and make it easier. In time it will sort itself out.
