I am having persistent sad and empty feelings.I get lost in my own thoughts,difficulty in concentrating and memorising although I was good at them earlier.I don't know what it is kinda complex.I am also most of the time fatigued, even when have sleep of 7 hours.My appetite is good. Am I having any kind of problems or it is only due to hectic schedule?

Psychologist,
A hectic schedule could be one reason. Other reasons could be anything that is stressing you out. Feelings of sadness come from somethings that have not worked out for you in the past. Stress and worry tension have this effect on the mind that you cannot concentrate or remember. Do meet a counsellor to get your sadness and emptiness addressed.

Anti Stress Therapies From Ayurveda!

Anti Stress Therapies From Ayurveda!

Stress has become a common problem in day to day life for a lot of people. Too much stress can result in premature aging and accumulation of free radicals within the body. Stress can also cause premature hair fall, wrinkles, exhaustion and frequent frustration. Ayurvedic therapies can counter stress and combat its physical toll on the body. Here is a list of few easy-to-follow Ayurvedic therapy techniques, which are extremely effective against stress:

  1. A stress-free start: It makes sense to start the day without any stress in mind. Ayurveda states that a full bowel movement is of paramount importance to start an effective day. Abhyanga, an oil message before having a bath, proves to be extremely effective. This should be followed by a 10-minute break so that the body can soak the oil. Lukewarm or hot water should be used to take bath. Some other yoga therapies such as pranayama, transcendental meditation, etc. can be practiced to get a head start on the day.
  2. Abhyanga: Abhyanga or an oil massage is a good stress resilient. In case there is a time crunch, neck, hand and feet region should be massaged to fetch great results. A moisturizing oil massage in these areas has a soothing effect on the body and mind.
  3. Meditation: It is a known fact that meditation by far is the best Ayurvedic therapy to counter stress. Over 600 studies have shown that meditation has a positive effect on stress. It can successfully cut down the cortisol hormone in the blood and the level of lactic acid in the body by increasing the level of serotonin. A 15-minute meditation schedule on a daily basis can do a world of good for people who are living a stressed life.
  4. Therapeutic aroma: It has been proven many times in the past that therapeutic aroma can successfully relieve stress in the short term. The choice of fragrance can be from the flower at home, aroma locket, aroma oil, perfume and so on. These aromas will not only give a feel-good factor throughout the day, but also ensure that the level of cortisol remains at an acceptable stage.
  5. Keeping hydrated: Keeping hydrated throughout the day is of prime importance to lead a stress-free life. Plenty of water along with time-to-time green tea relieves the nerve and has a soothing effect on the body. It is also necessary to forego beverages such as alcohol and coffee for long-term health benefits.
  6. Soothing music: Music has a profound impact on the nervous system, mind and on the overall human emotion. It creates a feel-good factor and relieves stress throughout the day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Sir .i m a smoker daily smoke 7-8 cigrate past 2-3 month .but now I wnt to quit smoke .bcoz I am preparation for army nd need stamina so. I want quit smoking. But after 1 day of quiting I control vry much but I go nd smoke one cigrate. Sir give me some advice to quiting smoke as fast as .nd sir I started smoking only 1 years ago.?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for quitting smoking. Apart from stamina, it will give you lots of health benefits also. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud.

I am unable to concentrate on my studies, not even getting interest. kindly advice.?
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. Take care.

Sir I smoked for 1 year now I want to be a singer before 10 days I quit smoking so then how long does it takes to heal my vocal chords.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Congratulations on your quitting smoking. It could take ten days to one month or six month for your body to completely repair your body and vocal chords. This depends on your smoking period. As you are just 19 years, your smoking period could be very less. Don't worry. Take care.

If I guess right, Your mother has sacrificed a lot for all of you but her expectations have not been fulfilled and she is irritable with the results she sees after all her hard work. She is more frustrated with her husband for not satisfying her needs and so is behaving in this peculiar erratic fashion. First treat her like a human being with needs. She has only been giving. Now she may want t receive too. Stop being selfish and cater to her needs. She will be back to normal.

Last 6 months I am suffering from anxiety and also I am taking prescription from neuro psychologist now I am feeling better but my question is when I will stop my tablets.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will stop taking medication when you get well and work along with a counselor to develop skills and techniques and tools to handle the daily stresses of life. Please combine the two and get the best results. Then as you improve, anywhere between 6 months to three years, with no episodes of anxiety, you can be weaned off of the medication. Anxiety is fear based, and it is an abnormal reaction to fear. These adaptations are not working for you and so the medication. In counseling you could identify the source of this fear and deal with that event in the present and gradually reduce the scare and face it with confidence. In the meantime, do aerobic exercises, yoga and meditation, have a good diet, sleep well and do not increase your stress. In other words; just be responsible, be respectful, and be functional always.

Hi, I am married for last 4 years to a bpd male, he has undergone various treatments in the past. I want to know can a relationship with bpd male last forever?

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
If you want a person to change, you must first realize how hard it is to change yourself. While treatments for bipolar disorder can help control the condition, it will be a constant battle throughout his life. If you decide to end a relationship because of a person’s bipolar disorder, try not to blame the person or their condition. It is no one’s fault that the person has the condition. Here are some reasons you may need to end the relationship: Your partner is dangerous. He or she becomes careless or reckless during mania. Your partner blames you for his or her problems. Your partner neglects treatments on purpose. Of course leaving without warning or discussion will be destabilizing for the other person, but if it is an issue of safety, you must protect yourself. Even if there is no risk of danger or violence, keep in mind that you cannot predict or take responsibility for the other person’s behaviors. They may respond with more intense anxiety, depression or anger than you expect or they might have been closer to wanting to break it off themselves than you realized, and may react with relief —or denial.

I am 21 year old. And I been hurted in my head a year ago when I was travelling in a car so a big jerk came and the car jerk on that so my head was hurted from the car roofs and that time it was just the pain for hours. But after a week it started creating problems like I feel that my concentration and memory level is been decreased. It has been year passed what should I do. It could be a blood clot or what.

Hi. It's unlikely that the impact would have created memory loss for you. If you are worried about there being blood clot then it's better to get checked/scanned than to live in speculation. Visit a neurologist and discuss your concerns.

Good Morning ~ It is not unusual in south INDIA for men to get married to their cousins (i.e. Your maternal uncles daughter or your paternal aunts daughter), however a relationship between you and your cousin sister (i.e. Your maternal aunts daughter and your paternal uncles son) are forbidden in south INDIAn HINDU culture. If you believe that you can fit into these cultural traditions I recommend that you consult your elders in the family for the same. I hope you feel better with the solution to your problems. If you continue to have any issues or questions, please let me know.

To get a better recall, you need to learn and register things in a better way. In other words, you need to increase your concentration first. Learn to meditate and focus on things. There are some memory improving techniques such as learn the things by making chunks. Associate the things with your personal experiences. It is called mnemonic devices.
