Hello, I am Dr Vikass Khanna. I’m working as a counsellor and hypnotist in Gurgaon Delhi. Today I will be talking about depression.

What is depression?

We have all been depressed sometimes in our lives. We’ve all been through ups and downs.

What is clinical depression?

CD is a very vague and broad clubbing of thought patterns. But does depression have a substance, absence of a state you want to be in. Let’s go to the roots of drips. You never visited the roots. The value system of our society which tells us to be someone to be happy to be kind, to be successful is the root of depression. We are always in a state of being someone, be somewhere, we have to be kind, to be more religious, be somewhere. Somewhere where one is not. There lies the conflict of what you are and what you want to be. Life is paly of polar opposites. You have expectations. You will have frustrations. They are eternally linked. If you don’t know the definition of happiness there’s no unhappiness. So why does one want to be in a futuristic state always, all the time, to be someone. As per the culture happiness, expecting something or the other all the time.

Now how do you manage depression?

Either pop a pill, take anti-depressants, which are 3 basically serotonin reuptake inhibitors. They inhibit the serotonin uptake. The chemicals they act till your taking them. In the brain circuits, a lot of adverse effects associated.

What is the other kind of motivation? 

Diversion, meditation, which are again suppressions. This suppressing kind of thought, Will you get rid of depression by that? Can you stop struggling to be free of depression? It is your mind which tells that you’re not happy. you’re sad. You should be somewhere. You should be like this. The same mind tells you to be free of depression. It is a moment, a mental moment, a though moment. Both the things can bring about that change.

Can you be depression free by struggling?

To get rid of it. Or increasing the depression like falling into the trap of depression. Can u let go of this struggle? Can you revisit the roots of depression? Expectations that ideal state, you want to be in. ideal state.

For any help enquiry, you can either come through the platform of lybrate or you can contact me directly on my mobile no. I’m available in Gurgaon and Delhi on appointments.

Thank you

I am a 17 year old girl who lives with her mother and brother. My father lives away from us. I just one question. I am giving board in the next month. My mother is very busy as my brother's exam is coming. That time I feel very alone sometimes. Feel very bad. My mood gets off and my energy level goes down. I don't have anyone to talk that time. Am I over thinking? I just talk all bullshit, rubbish to my self, I just talk to myself alone to reduce stress. And laugh like mad. Listen music. Cause music is my love. So am I overreacting?

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

How we can come out from stress or something like depression like negative thoughts please suggest.
If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. And if these are not useful you need antidepressants 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Hi, my husband is a smoker. He started smoking twenty years ago. We consulted a doctor who gave us some medication to help him reduce craving, however its not really helping him. Please help me, I desperately want him to quit smoking.

(MRCPSYCH-UK), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
If he is an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, he can quit. If he is a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help him quit. If he is a diseased smoker, consult a de-addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give anti-smoking medications and de-addiction treatment and counseling. The same applies to alcohol dependence disease also.

Day after tomorrow is my final semester examination. I'm not able to cover all topics, infect I'm not able to remember what I've read. Please give me some advice, to overcome this. And so that can go easy with my exam. I feel very tense about this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your problem is in the tension which you mention and the more you worry about it, the more forgetful and tense you will feel. Deal with your stress and everything will improve. You may do some of the following anyway: 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. 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. Sine it come to the fag end of your course, you can take some risk and avoid some topics. You may also make some short notes, if it is not too late, and study only those. 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.

I am addicted to an online game. Its called League of Legends. I almost ruined 2 and half years of my college on that. I'm on my third year of college and I still am not able to get over the game. I'm staying up late playing till 3 and not being able to do the normal things. I dont know how to get over the game. Im very addicted to it. I'm becoming more aggressive and i lose my head very easily. Even if I delete the game I'm forced by myself to install it again. Its impossible with or without it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your addiction is becoming an obsessive-compulsive behavior and needs immediate attention. It has taken too much of your invaluable college life and your youthful time. As you can see it is really a debilitating condition and is leading to incapacitation and a dysfunctional state. You have to immediately shut down all game-related activities and cafes and find alternative occupations that will engage your mind and body attractively. Draw up a tight timetable with interesting activities and follow them meticulously. Initially it may be useful to shift to another location or town and remove yourself from tempting surroundings and gadgets, for a short while. If necessary, find a suitable companion or your parents to also get involved and to be of support in this reformation. It is near impossible to do this alone. There is not enough pleasure-related activities in your repertoire of daily routines. Also you may have a very great need for excitement in your life that is missing for a long time, perhaps. Self-control is another important skill that is missing in your development. Exercise and competitive physical contact games will be very useful too. You should also pray daily to get help from god to intervene with his power and support. I have published a book on addictions, which covers other forms of enslavements and may be useful for your recovery. If you need a copy, please contact me along with a payment of Rs. 250/-, with free posting.
