Im 24 n I have just completed my studies last year. Therefore, not having myself employed in any field and parents not allowing me to tie a knot is putting me into stressful state of mind, unable to think anything positive .Although I and my boyfriend's parents are mentally ready.

Communicate with your parents about why they won't let you marry. If direct communication is not possible, involve a family member or friend to intervene. If that does not work either, take the help of a psychologist/ counselor/ psychiatrist. In the meanwhile, set some life goals for yourself. Take up a job or do a course that will help you in the field of your choice. Marriage is an important part of your life, but it is not everything. It is possible once you give this situation some time, things will work out. However if you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, consult a psychiatrist immediately.

You need to give him variety of foods & incorporate foods he does not like into foods of his choice. Some nutrient & energy dense foods low in volume: Soyabean-carrot cutlets, laal saag paratha/ veg pulao with Dhania Chicken, egg curry (curry should be prepared with tomato & onion), banana milkshake, mango lassi, dates chutney, premix, cereal malt with milk & sugar, bel juice, sugarcane juice, french omlette (with cheese), chicken-veg sandwich, til chikki, peanut chikki, chicken stew (with vegetables), fruit custard, fruit srikhand, dates payasam. He drinks tea as tea gives him caffeine boost that makes him feel energetic temporarily. Encourage him to play with friends daily. Be friendly with him as so that he can share his problems with you.

Dreaming is always there, while some rea vivid others could be easily forgotten. You can manage to get more agreeable dreams if you sleep on your left ear only. For you problems with sleep you may implement the following guidelines: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Doctor I am a chain smoker and I wanna know foods which will help my lungs to counter smoke effect. As I am trying to quit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is no foods specific to helping you counter the tobacco smoke effect on your lungs. You may however take the following measures to improving your lungs and as well as quitting smoking: When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well may be a little less. Your desire to smoke less is most welcome but it is not enough. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. 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 gums and 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Hi, I was an occasional drinker. However off late my drinking has increased and now I drink almost everyday. Eventhough my intake is something like 2 beers at most a day, I have it almost every day. I would like to restrict this habit and be a social drinker. How can I prevent myself from being a full blown alcoholic and control this urge for alcohol.

Hello, this daily drinking habit will lead to dependency. Not sure since hoe long you are having alcohol on daily basis. Find out the triggering factor for alcohol consumption and try to solve it. Do you get craving for alcohol? if you have withdrawal symptoms I would advice you to meet nearby psychiatrist and get treated. You can have dinner before your usual time of drinking which would reduce your craving. Avoid going out with bad company. Spend quality time with family. Try to wake up early morning and practice yoga, breathing exercise, jogging, meditation etc which will keep you motivated. Start taking b complex tablets.

It is natural to be anxious when you are writing an important exam so that you do well but excess anxiety can be counterproductive and hinder your learning and revision. If you are suffering from depression, then you will need to take psychiatric treatment and undergo psychological counselling as well to manage depression. Cognitive behaviour therapy is excellent for controlling rumination and negative thinking, anger management and any emotional disturbance. You can also look at alternate sciences to help you with depression because they don't have side effects. 1. You need to understand the source of your emotional upheaval and learn to either manage with it or cope with it so that you can concentrate on your studies. 3. Exercising regularly within your capacity is very important so that natural neuro are released in the brain and you will feel relax and calmer and more confident and motivated to do many things. You can run, walk, gym, dance, whatever you can and want to do. 4. Avoid all kind od processed and refined foods and replace with fresh fruit and vegetables for your nutrition. You need more of lean proteins, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin b12 and vitamin d3 for optimal brain functioning and emotional wellbeing. 5. Sleeping well for 6-8 hours every night is important for the brain to recoup from daily stress and body from physical stress. Please do bhramri and anulom vilom pranayama to help you sleep well every evening for 10 min each. Please give your exams only that much importance that is due to it because life is more than these exams and not everything in your life depends on them.

Antidepressants at the earliest should be given. Nowadays many new latest drugs are available which can treat his depression that too with minimal/simple side effects. Counselling after few weeks of antidepressants also will help. He should try to be social, follow his hobbies, do some sporting activities etc. By doing these he can overcome depression.

Before engaging in your studies, and concentrating, try to center yourself with silence, clearing your mind of distractions That may disrupt your productivity. What you can control in your studies: •" Here I study" Get a dedicated space, chair, table, lighting and environment Avoid your cellphone or telephone Put up a sign to avoid being disturbed or interrupted If you like music in the background, OK, but don't let it be a distraction. (Research on productivity with music versus without music is inconclusive) •Stick to a routine, efficient study schedule Accommodate your day/nighttime energy levels •Focus Before you begin studying, take a few minutes to summarize a few objectives, gather what you will need, and think of a general strategy of accomplishment •Incentives Create an incentive if necessary for successfully completing a task, Such as calling a friend, a food treat, a walk, etc. For special projects such as term papers, design projects, long book reviews, set up a special incentive •Change topics Changing the subject you study every one to two hours for variety •Vary your study activities Alternate reading with more active learning exercises If you have a lot of reading, try the SQ3R method Ask yourself how you could increase your activity level while studying? Perhaps a group will be best? Creating study questions? Ask your teacher for alternative strategies for learning. The more active your learning, the better. •Take regular, scheduled breaks that fit you Do something different from what you've been doing (e. G. Walk around if you've been sitting), and in a different area •Rewards Give yourself a reward when you've completed a task Best Practices: •You should notice improvement in a few days But like any practice, there will be ups, levels, and downs: •It will benefit other activities you do! Be Here Now This deceptively simple strategy is probably the most effective. When you notice your thoughts wandering astray, say to yourself" Be here now" and gently bring your attention back to where you want it. For example: You're studying and your attention strays to all the other homework you have, to a date, to the fact that you're hungry. Say to yourself" Be here now" Focus back on subject with questions, summarizing, outlining, mapping, etc. And maintain your attention there as long as possible. When it wanders again, repeat" Be here now" And gently bring your attention back, and continue this practice, repeatedly. It will work! Do not try to keep particular thoughts out of your mind. For example, as you sit there, close your eyes and think about anything you want to for the next three minutes except cookies. Try not to think about cookies. When you try not to think about something, it keeps coming back. (" I'm not going to think about cookies. I'm not going to think about cookies.) You might do this hundreds of times a week. Gradually, you'll find that the period of time between your straying thoughts gets a little longer every few days. So be patient and keep at it. You'll see some improvement! Do not constantly judge your progress. Take it easy on yourself. Good practice is enough to say that you did it, and that you are on the road. The mind is always different and the practice unfolds over time with many ups and downs. Worry or Think Time Research has proven that people who use a worry time find themselves Worrying 35 percent less of the time within four weeks. 1.Set aside a specific time each day to think about The things that keep entering your mind and interfering with your concentration. 2.When you become aware of a distracting thought, Remind yourself that you have a special time to think about them, 3.Let the thought go, Perhaps with" Be here now, 4.Keep your appointment To worry or think about those distracting issues For example, set 4: 30 to 5 p. M. As your worry/think time. When your mind is side-tracked into worrying during the day, remind yourself that you have a special time for worrying. Then, let the thought go for the present, and return your focus to your immediate activity. Tallying your mental wanderings. Have a 3 x 5 inch card handy. Draw two lines dividing the card into three sections. Label them" morning" afternoon, and" evening. Each time your mind wanders, make a tally in the appropriate section. Keep a card for each day. As your skills build, you'll see the number of tallies decrease Maximize your energy level When is your energy level at its highest? When are your low energy times? Study your most difficult courses at your high energy times. Sharpest early in the evening? Study your most difficult course then. Later in the evening? Work on your easier courses or the ones you enjoy the most. Most students put off the tough studies until later in the evening when they become tired, and it is more difficult to concentrate. Reverse that. Study hard subjects at peak energy times; easier ones later. This alone can help to improve your concentration Visualize As an exercise before you begin studying, think of those times when concentration is not a problem for you--no matter what situation. Now try to feel or image yourself in that situation. Recapture that experience immediately before your studies by placing yourself in that moment. Repeat before each study session. Please contact if you have any further query. Regards
