The good news is with awareness you can always change the way you are thinking. Thoughts have great influence over our feelings and behaviour. The way we interpret our environment is part of learned behaviour from significant people in our lives. So it's possible to change the way we think about people and situations. Do consult a counsellor to explore ways you can do the same.

If you haven't had a professional diagnosis yet then please don't say that you have depression because the thought sits in the mind and takes deep roots and even if you didn't have depression you will start showing symptoms of it gradually. Please get a proper diagnosis from a psychiatrist and also see a counsellor for cbt therapy meant for reducing the rumination and irrational and unhealthy thoughts and beliefs about self others and various situations. Eating a healthy and we'll balanced diet is an important recovery tool from depression as the brain and mind both function well if it received enough lean proteins, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids. Adequate amount of exercise release natural anti depressants like serotonin, tryptophan and norepinephrin in the brain to maintain mental and emotional equilibrium. Sleeping regularly for 7-8hours is a must for the body and mind to recover from daily stress. Learning how to deal and cope with tough life situations is very important so that you feel confident of living the life of your choice. Having a healthy social circle and a satisfying hobby is important for feelings of accomplishment and acceptance in the society.

I am feeling depressed alot nowadays from last 1 year. Please suggest me some tips to come out of depression. please.
In our current life style most of us are not equipped to deal with our mental and emotional processes. Due to constant out side pressure and expectations we doubt and question our abilities. Also in a age of super fast life we lean towards instant results, which at times are not possible. This again increase our stress level. The best way to deal with this is to build our resilience and learn to manage our strees level. Once you are able to manage your stress, your self confideance and your self esteem both will increase and you will be able to make better decisions and accomplish lot in life. Try following on a regular basis and in 2 to 4 weeks you will see some positive changes in your life. Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you are open for online consultation to work on individualized plan and strategies feel free to book an audio consultation with me. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Since 6 months, I get into some worries about what would happen if I am not there, or if some one cheat my children, or if my children fall sick, who will take care in my absence, whether my wife can take care and how does my children take care of my business, family and grow well healthy and wealthy without loosing the wealth created by us. Do they get cheated if I have not updated about the followup, renewals, or get into wrong hands or action by some jealous people etc. Do they get married to a person with good family back ground and enjoy the life with good earning etc. And this disturbs my sleep at night often. Is this due to my house shifting last year still settling though I am 61 years and have normal BP, Sugar under control with one tablet each, ankylosing spondylitis and having severe cough problem most of the days.

I am not talking about the medical issues but having concern about the future of your family is because of a human being's need for survival and there is nothing wrong with it. Problem is when the thoughts overpower us and affects daily routine which is what seems to be happening in your case now. So to begin resolving the issue- it will be good idea to sort all documents, organise and keep everything in place and inform your family/ trusted people about it. Have you thought about making a will? About other things that are worrying you- one strategy that might help is to think of the worst case scenario. You have survived and most likely your family members will too. Once you know the worst that can happen and you are prepared for it, the present will not remain so disturbing. If these thoughts still trouble you, please reach out to a psychologist. I wish you well.

Top 5 Ways to Deal With Stress Through Ayurveda

M.D. (Ayurveda )

Top 5 Ways to Deal With Stress Through Ayurveda

In modern life, the word stress is not new. Almost everybody is in stress, be it financial, personal or professional. According to Ayurveda, stress is that situation of your mind when it is imbalanced. If you are not under stress, then your mind will be relaxed and stable, and it can perform everyday activity normally. Hence, when you are under stress, Ayurveda has a solution for you to relieve you from stress and lead a normal life.

5 ways through which you can deal with stress with the help of Ayurveda are:

  1. Take a Bath: Although bathing is your daily habit, yet by bathing you can control your stress levels. When you take a bath, it helps your body to release tension and relax the nervous system. While bathing, you can add 1/3 cup ginger powder to the water. This will increase the healing and relaxation process. You can also take Epsom salt bath as that too will help you to relax and cleanse.
  2. Practice Oil Pulling: For removing the natural toxins from your mouth and increasing your sense of taste, you can gargle with warm water toasted with coconut and sesame oil. Start by swishing the mixture of oil. You can swish the oil from the front to back, side by side and throughout your teeth for about twenty minutes. After spitting the oil out, you must rinse your mouth with warm water.
  3. Do Abhyanga: This is an ancient practice of oil massage where you use oils to calm the nervous system and rejuvenate the tissues by lubricating them. With this self-massage of oil, you can promote circulation of blood throughout your body. Abhyanga is a practice of rejuvenating your body through massaging the different parts with organic oil. There are different types of oil in Ayurveda that are used for various purposes.
  4. Practice Nasya: This is another technique in Ayurveda where medicated oil is applied to the nasal passages. When you practice this, the delicate nasal tissues are soothed and relieve stress. However, pregnant women and menstruating women should not practice Nasya. Every morning apply a few drops of Nasya oil to your nostrils for getting better results.
  5. Massage Your Feet before Bed: Another way to relax your body from stress is by massaging some oil before sleeping. For this, you may use brahmi oil, bhringaraj oil, or sesame oil. With this practice, you can soothe your body and release the pressure, thus getting relief from stress.

You must try these everyday so that Ayurveda can relieve you from stress. However, do not forget to get to experts if you still find yourself under stress.

Up msc they supported to you. But now they feel up to that it is enough. They have no confidence on you. Because of your friend circle and social net work activities. They have no confidence on you. For that reason they are not permit to you for mba. You have lack of communication with your parents. You are given much priority to friends and social net works up to that. You are not develop good faith from parents. So they do not believe you. They think that if it is loose now you may be spoiled. They have their own set of thoughts. You are not doing any mistakes up to. But you are not develop positive thoughts on you. So in this stage. Leave it what is happend. Now better to communicate with parents. Better to convince them. Tell that I want to settle as individual person. Please permit me like that request to them in a pleasing manner. You may have chance to succeed. Do not punish yourself. Do not think too much about this aspects. If they are not accepted your request. Then take it in a positive. Life cycle is changing from time to time. We can not expect all days are mine. As per the requirement of the situation behave like that. So much future you have. The days comes back again. When you work. Up to that wait. Take rest. Be friendly with parents. Be think always in a positive manner. Ok best of luck. My best wishes always with you. God bless you.

Dear, I think your awareness is not correct. You will be able to store data into your brain even though you don't try to store it and you will be able to recall that data without difficulty. You need to know more about your memory and abilities. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I depressed lot due to love failure. I can't come out of it. Guide to get relief.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I depressed lot due to love failure. I can't come out of it. Guide to get relief.
Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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 a lot of 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. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. 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. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

Hi sir I want to improve my stamina and memory strength please tell me best mesisuna.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

In hookah smoke passes through water which was thought to filter out harmful chemicals but that is now not known to be true. Hookah may actually be more harmful because of the long smoking duration!
