Try to notice and record your thoughts whenever you want to focus but feel unable to do. Negative thoughts brings negative emotions which distracts your mind. Efforts should be made to release these thoughts from your mind. Practice relaxation techniques to relax your mind and to get stable.

I am a college student I want to ask how I can overcome depression? I'm not able to eat in that condition.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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, 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 scorching 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, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Loss of appetite is not unusual for people depressed. Some hormonal changes will definitely affect the situation too. So the doctor will advise you fo what to do apart from​ these suggestions.

I can't concentrate in anything when I want to concentrate my brain shows me a lot of pics which can't be readable.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may be a very visual person and mere reading of material while studying will make it near impossible to concentrate. So you must study visually: you must not read aloud but do silent reading looking and making impressions with the written word. You will be able to remember pictures like diagrams, photos, images, and drawings a lot better. Studying by the visual mode is the most powerful. Group study will prevent you from wandering into visual fantasizing. Any way some of the following will help you improve your concentration: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You are stronger visual over 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. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

How To Overcome Infidelity

MD-Pharmacology, MBBS

How To Overcome Infidelity

Over the years, infidelity has surfaced as the single most common reason that has the ability to shatter and dismantle a perfectly happy relationship. Infidelity can occur in any and every form of relationship and in each of them it is deemed as unacceptable and uncalled for. Lack of affection has been generally identified as the primary cause why people stray.

However, there are other reasons too that cause infidelity. Some of them are:

  1. Bad judgment: The person who is held responsible for going astray may actually be the victim of bad judgement and an impulsive decision. There may not be anything wrong with the marriage, but momentary attraction and a rash decision are possible reasons that lead a person astray.
  2. Search for an emotional connect: The lack of emotional connect with the partner can be a possible reason for infidelity. An unquenchable thirst for attention and the need to be flattered as well as finding an emotional connect with a new person causes infidelity. Though the most common and devastating outcome of infidelity is the end of a relationship, there are ways, which helps one to overcome infidelity. Some of them are as follows:
  3. Ending the affair immediately: The first and foremost step that you must take in overcoming infidelity is to end the affair immediately. If your relationship is important to you, then it would require your complete investment both physically and emotionally. You must snap all contacts with the other person and concentrate on rebuilding your relationship with renewed faith and trust.
  4. Open discussion: If you want your relationship to work then you must have a completely free and open discussion with your partner. Coming clean about your past affair is imperative if you want to begin anew. Your partner deserves a complete, honest discussion and you must do it delicately and with a lot of care.
  5. Willingness to compromise: Beginning a relationship after confessing about the past relationships requires a lot of hard work and compromises. It will take a long time for the relationship to be what it was before the infidelity and you should take complete responsibility for it as well have a willingness to compromise on certain issues.
  6. Marriage therapy: Apart from the attempt to amend yourself, you can also use the help of a marriage therapist. A marriage counselor or a therapist, through prolonged discussions and sound counselling can avert the possible ending of the relationship.

I am Saurabh Joshi, 26 year age male. I do a lot of things for my loved ones and I love to do things for others. I want nothing for my self. But problem is that I think too much when they do not give importance for what I have done for them. Instead they started ignoring me. I go too depression and become very anxious and always think that what I have done wrong, why such think always happens to me, in short I feel like a victim. But still I do not stop doing good things to them. So tell me the solution that how can I overcome from my problem of over thinking. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, your problem does not seem to be" overthinking" or" doing good things for others" on one end you say that you do not want anything for yourself, but on the other hand you expect appreciation of your good deeds. I think you need to start thinking rationally. Your" overexpectations" are irrational beliefs that need to be rationalised through counselling. Consult a ret therapist or a cbt therapist for counselling.

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. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Meet an expert, this questions cant be solved this way. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

I am suffering from depression last 2 months but what happens why happened Don't know n forget things.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi lybrate-user, sometimes there is no external reason for depression its due to neuro-chemical imbalance in brain. You should consult a psychiatrist for medication, if you tell me your symptoms in detail I would be able to screen the severity of your depression. Have more fruits in your diet- banana's, more green leafy vegetables and dry fruits, if non veg- have fish. Try to exercise daily for 30 minutes.

Hello sir/ madam I'm shafi 22 year old I want to quit smoking please give me a solution thanks.

Habitual smoking or chain smoking increases the Tar content in our lungs thus decreasing our lungs Air spaces called Alveolar sacs.Due to this decrease in air spaces,we cant exert much as our lungs cant carry more volumes of air due to decreased lung spaces.This leads to shortness of breath when we exert thus loosing our stamina.So to increase stamina,the first and foremost thing a chain smoker should do is ti quit smoking cigrattes and start doing morning cardio exercises or breathing exercises to increase lung spaces.It sounds very easy but my friend it is not that easy as it requires a lot of Determination and will power because you will have to face a lot of challenges while quitting this habit and you must have to be head strong.Once you quit your smoking habit,the things will automatically becomes easy for you. Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking.

You do not mention that do you have any mental stress in past few days. If there is any then you can tell us. Till then try to keep yourself calm and relaxed with relaxation therapy and meditation. At bed time or whenever you feel irritation and mood swing starts deep breathing and count 20-1 with every inhale and exhale. Then starts thinking that I am relax, I am calm and I can do everything, and also I love my self. Try it regular basis and you will feel better.

I have smoking from last two years now I am stuck with this. Tell me how to leave it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. 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 in 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 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 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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.

Hi doctor I have married 6 months ago. My wife has 3elder and 1younger sisters. Since 6 months my wife is not merged with us and always talks about her family. I think after marriage every lady should change and merge with husband's family. But in my case it is totally different. She always talks on phone with her sisters and parents. I don't know What she is talking but here always some disturbances will happen with me and my parents. I was totally depressed whether I should support my parents or my wife. Recently we talked to her parents about her. Since 20 days she is fine but now same thing is happening. My parents are suffering with diabetes. They need support of me and my wife. But I am not satisfied with this type. I am in big dilemma. please help to solve my problem.

Hello lybrate-user, I completely understand your situation and what you are going through. I understand your expectation that your wife needs to adjust with your family, I agree with that, however, I would suggest talk to her with the understanding that she can definitely communicate with her relatives in addition to try to get acquainted to the new family and the new culture of the family. Is this your arrange marriage. If its your arrange marriage, it will take some time for your wife to completely get adjusted to your family. However, I do understand that she has a responsibility now and she is supposed to balance that. Additionally, it will really help if you both are willing to go through Post Marriage Counseling with a Professional to understand how to have a healthy and successful married life.

Humans are social by nature and loneliness can be very depressing. Find something interesting to do in life, meet like minded people with whom you can share doing activities. Loneliness occurs when we judge ourselves or the old her person. Having too many expectations from people also creates emotional distance. Learn to forgive yourself and others because nobody is perfect. Everyone has their own stress and problems. Click on private chat to consult me.

Hi lybrate-user, don't spoil your life and waste your time on people who don; t respect you enough. Its a myth that we become helpless no one is every helpless we are always in control of the situation you just need to realize it. Block all communication with him, invest in you, join some hobby classes focus on your career. If you stick with this guy you sure may have emotional difficulties later. Discuss your concerns with a therapist. You can consult with me too all the best.
