Dear user. I can understand. Shyness is a blessing on many accounts. You don't need to change your behavior pattern completely and your shy attitude completely. that will be bad. Instead, provide me the situations you want to change your behavior. We can work together and change your shyness in those circumstances. Take care.

Please suggest me some tips to increase the memory power and concentration. Does hardworking people always succeed in Life?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Hard Work brings success. No doubt 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.

Dear user. I can understand. PANIC ATTACK a sudden overwhelming feeling of acute and disabling anxiety. Panic disorder is different from the normal fear and anxiety reactions to stressful events. Panic disorder is a serious condition that strikes without reason or warning. Symptoms of panic disorder include sudden attacks of fear and nervousness, as well as physical symptoms such as sweating and a racing heart. Panic attack always happens due to an underlying anxiety disorder. So you need to treat anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder is treated with the help of counseling and psychotherapy. You should consult a psychologist. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, for study or using computer or laptop, we must sit in proper posture, if people sit in wrong posture then they face this problem, whenever we get pain we need to change posture and walk around for few minutes that gives relief.

Hi lybrate-user, there may or may not be a problem with you, I can not judge you by few lines that you have written. It could be that you are shy and introvert but you need affection also, so what happens you expect other people to be around and give you attention which you enjoy but may be in return you are not able to give them that much, so your efforts are not very evident and it may give impression to others that you are not trying or not interested but you are its just your personality is introverted im sure the right people stay in your life. Consult with me for counseling and therapy.

You need to relax- over thinking is not good. Learn to take things easy. Anxiety will definitely affect your sex life and marriage. Adopt a healthy routine- eat healthy, drink lots of water, exercise everyday for 45 mins to 1 hour. Spend time with family and friends. You should have positive thinking, be optimistic about things. Don't expect from people- the more you think in terms of that people should behave in these ways only, and the more you try to change others, more you will be stressed. Look at the positives in others and have faith in yourself.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

From 4 years I been an smoker till now sandenlly I feel so pain heart side. How could be it quit it smoking habit.
Stop smoking asap, as it is pollution levels in the environment are high and all of us in delhi/mumbai are inhaling 8-10 cigarettes a day ruining our lungs and hearts, low levels of oxygen in circulating blood can trigger a heart attack, you should quit smoking through will power for your sake and for sake of your loved ones. You have pain on the heart side, remember all pains are not due to heart, if there are no other symptoms, try a painkiller like meftal, if it is a muscular pain, it will give you relief, but heart pain is sharp shooting and does not get corrected by painkillers. Do give a feedback.

Depression In Children - Causes And Symptoms

Ph.D - Psychology, M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist,
Depression In Children - Causes And Symptoms

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

 

Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:

The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a Pediatrician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy or medication. In some instances, a child suffering from depression may be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to. Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Psychotherapy or antidepressant medication use is usually depending on the predominant symptoms and the severity of depression. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy. We must understand that depression is just another disease with is treatable like any other illness so do not hesitate in seeking professional help.

Hi lybrate-user, have an appointment with your doctor and he is the right person to reduce the dosage or change medication. At the same time talk to a counselor to know how to deal anxiety and depression. Changing life style, pursuing hobbies etc need to be included in your day to day activities.

Do not mind the mind. Let your random thoughts come and go. Do not wrestle with them, if you do, you are only increasing the momentum of thoughts. There are patterns and phases to sleep, some accumulated thought residues{insecurity, fear etc etc] buried deep often come to surface after a while. Let it go out of your system. Relax. This will pass.

It seems there are immense negative thoughts & pessimism inside you which are disturbing you lot. You better talk to your attending doctor about your feeling low & lonely with depressed thoughts, & that the symptoms are persisting even after taking medicines for anxiety & Depression. Your doctor will then re evaluate you & adjust your medicines accordingly. Take the prescribed medicines regularly & in time. You can also go for counseling sessions to get relief from those disturbing symptoms faster. Along with, take the following measures to help yourself: •Try to lead an active life & maintain a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, do some yoga or relaxation techniques daily. •Try to be contented with what is in hand. Over expectation is usually harmful. •Set goals which are realistic & within your capability & try to pursue them. •Do not spend time alone. Spend time with friends, family members or well wishers with whom you feel comfortable & positive. •Read motivational books & quotes. •Spend some time daily recollecting the good moments in your life. •Try to evaluate things practically & rationally. •Avoid people who spreads negativity or demoralize you. •Avoid watching or reading mind disturbing things like violence, crime, horrors etc. •Maintain a daily routine. •Pursue your hobbies or keep a pet. •Every day spend some time with nature & try to feel its beauty. •Stay away from substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis, inhalants, drugs etc. •If any problem is there in your life, put your maximum effort & try to solve it. Work to enhance your problem solving skills & coping skills. If you are not able to solve any problem yourself, discuss about it with a well wisher or take professional help. •Keep reminding yourself the fact that people with bigger problems exist in this world. Then your problem will seem trivial. •Read or watch comedies & laugh to your fullest. •Above all, keep reminding yourself that life is precious & one is gifted with this life for once only. Every moment, every day is precious & life once lost can never be regained back. Wish you speedy recovery.

I used to take vitamin E tablets seldom. But now I've been taking them (vit E capsules) tablets regularly from 1 week. It's really working on my skin and I found that pimples which I had before are getting healed and there are no further symptoms of any pimple till now but I'm worried if I can orally take this tablet regularly. And what if I stop taking the capsules suddenly. Will the pimples attack me again. Will I have to continue taking tablets regularly to prevent pimples. Can you please tell me the side effects and Benefits of taking vitamin E capsules orally and by applying​ on to the skin. thank you.

Vitamin E oil has powerful antioxidant properties that make it highly effective in treating various skin conditions including acne. You may have noticed that many skin care products such as creams and lotions include Vitamin E oil as an essential ingredient. This is because it has many wonderful benefits such as delaying the signs of aging, hydrating the skin, eliminating acne scars, etc. However, if you are considering oral Vitamin E supplements for acne and pimples, there are certain things that you should keep in mind. Firstly, think about whether you prefer a supplement that is natural or synthetic. Experts recommend trying to find a supplement that is a natural blend of tocotrienols and tocopherols as it is more easily absorbable. Vitamin E oil in the natural form is known to be twice as active as it is in the synthetic form The second thing that you need to keep in mind is the amount of the oil you take in. The recommended daily allowance or RDA is slightly more than 22 IU for adults ; however, it is commonly sold in dosages that are much higher.It is believed that taking higher doses can cause a purportedly higher risk of bleeding, particularly among patients with Vitamin K deficiency or those who take blood-thinning medications. Keep your intake below 400 IU to keep this danger away. Thus it is always good to make dietary modifications rather than taking supplements for a prolonged time period. As mentioned, a great way to get Vitamin E is to include foods that are rich in it in your diet. Foods like almonds, beans, broccoli, peanuts, hazelnuts, sweet potatoes, yams, wheat germ, raw honey and sunflower seeds are rich in this vital nutrient. Another way to use Vitamin E oil for acne prone skin is to apply it topically. As mentioned already, it is often used as an ingredient in soaps, lotions, creams and other beauty products. It works excellently as a moisturizer, and its antioxidant properties are believed to protect the skin against fine lines and wrinkles as well as sun damage. When it is topically applied on the skin with acne or pimples, Vitamin E oil works with fantastic results. However, if you already have oily skin, it may not be suitable for you.

You need to get rid of Asthma if it is severe. Secondly develop concentration. Repeatd recall or mental recall of the names and practice will help you remeber your memory. Do you have this problem recently or for a long time. You may need Psychomety if that were so. However practice make perfect, with or without association techniques. Try SQ3R technique.

I understand you concern for your father. You can advice your father to start doing some aerobic or yoga so that his tension will be reduced and daily make a habit of taking 10-12 glasses of water which will make him fit and healthy away from all tensions. You can go for Xray investigation to confirm. And for knee pain let me recommed some home care management because it could be arthritis which is very common in this age: • Avoid prolonged standing. • Rest painful joints: O Use a walker. O Use crutches. O Use a cane. • Apply warm compresses for stiffness: O Apply for 20-30 minutes, every 1-2 hours. O Wear a sling • Follow an exercise plan developed with your doctor. O Perform exercises for osteoarthritis. O Perform gentle stretching after exercise. • Acetaminophen for pain • Take prescription pain medicines as directed. • Use splints for arthritis (if diagnosed in Xray): O Apply splints when the joints are swollen. • Wear footwear that fits properly. • Weight loss if you are overweight. Precautions to be taken to avoid joint pains • Milk, curd, ghee, butter milk and cucumber which contain more amount of calcium should be taken. More exercise should not be done. • People should not climb steps, hills and heights and they should not sit down on the floor. • Taking bath with cold water is not good. • Food which contains sugar and sour tastes should be taken. • Besan flour items and potatoes, radish, sweet potatoes should not be taken.
