Dear lybrate-user. You are talking about stress due to education. Many students travel long distance to study daily. Everyone will be tired. Naturally the food habit has to be modified so as to help in overcoming tiredness. Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals etc help a lot. Protein supplements are excellent. Take care.

Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep •Keep in mind that your future and career are very important and are of top priority. •All your other activities are Ok as long as your studies are not disturbed. •If you are preoccupied with some urgent work, finish that job and start your studies with free mind. •Study the subject at your hand with interest, zeal and determination and don’t feel it as a compulsion.

How to reduce our fat and how to many question in my mind solve a doctor than tell me how to improve ousr study.
Tips to reduce your weight and belly fat: Losing your weight is a slow and controlled process; diet management and exercise is the key - Strict to protein diet: avoid carbohydrates and fat in your diet- some regular sources for protein are pulses, soybean, rajma, chola, eggs, meat etc. - Exercise sensibly: exercise till you sweat, a good exercise should also increase your heart rate; such cardiovascular exercises should be performed. - Avoid alcohol and smoking - these things reduce your body metabolism and make you gain weight. - Don't starve: have an appropriate amount of food or else your body will store food (make you obese) while you starve. - Rest: rest is very important to make you look and feel good, oversleeping and deficient sleep both make you gain weight. - If you face weakness go for diet supplements such as multivitamin tabs. These supplementary measures will cover all your body micro nutrition needs. - Natural fat burners must be considered if you are serious enough to loose your weight.

Dear , Before thinking of depression, you should address your stress first. The symptoms you mention here are almost stress related. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

My daughter short type memory what can I do her mind study she learn but after some time his mind blank.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This may be a recent development and it is primarily because of her age. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting her ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time she could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: she will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, she will become sexually active, and she will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact her memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But she may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if she goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else she is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that her 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. She should 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. She needs to check out if she is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if she combines the two modes, she 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 she gets bored, study by writing. If she repeats learning at least five to seven times, she 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 left nostril and breathe, move 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position she must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that her teacher will be able to guide her with. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect her memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. 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. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I want to know about it, is it common? If it is then what are other problem I'm gonna have while quitting smoking. Suggest me anything which can make this procedure easier. please reply as soon as possible.

You took a very good decision to quit smoking. It is a harmful habit & do not have any beneficial effect on the body. Smoking for long may affect the upper respiratory tract & lungs, causing many problems like throat irritation & infection, chronic cough, COPD, Chronic bronchitis etc. As you are having chest pain better get yourself evaluated by a physician to rule out any affect in your chest & lungs by smoking. Take the following steps to keep up your motivation to continue your effort to quit smoking: oEducate yourself adequately regarding smoking & its ill effects. Acquire the required information by reading books, going through internet or talking to a professional trained in de addiction. OKeep reminding yourself of the benefits you will achieve after quitting smoking: After quitting you will have reduced risk of the many diseases caused by smoking. Your family & near ones will be saved from the ill effects of passive smoking. Your mouth will be saved from the bad odor caused by smoking. You can focus more on your relationships. Smoking might have affected your relations if your close ones were against it, or because you were so preoccupied with the substance, your relations suffered. You can participate actively in social gatherings as you will not have to stay away because of your habit nor have to come out frequently to smoke. You will save the money you were wasting on smoking & use them for better purposes. OImagine & create in your mind a picture of a beautiful future of a life without smoking. Imagine how much you will benefit in your new life. In between your beautiful imaginary picture also imagine that you started to smoke again. Then imagine how one by one the beautiful picture will shatter. Once you become aware of the consequences of relapse, you will also develop fear of relapsing. You will then stay more cautious not to start it again. OCount the first day of your quitting as the first day of a new start & from that day, live one day at a time. It is helpful if you can relate this day to some important events in your life like your birthday or birthday of someone close, anniversary, day of some achievements etc. On the morning of the second day, tell yourself that you are starting the second day of your substance free life & by night time thank yourself that you stayed substance free whole day & encourage yourself to stay smoke free in coming days too. Celebrate your victory of staying sober on completing 1 week, 2 weeks, then 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and on completing one year celebrate the first birthday of your sobriety. This will encourage you to stay sober further. OAvoid triggering factors that may tempt you to smoke. For example if the triggering factor was internal say some stress for which you got inclined to abusing substance, then work on the stress to remove it or take help of a counselor to overcome the stress. If the trigger was external, like some friends persuade & you could not say no, in some specific event or situation you usually smoke etc, then stay away from those situation. OImmediately after quitting, craving will be intense. But gradually with time it will reduce. So the initial days you have to be very careful. Keep yourself busy & diverted. You can use alternatives like nicotine lozenges or chewing gum. Gradually reduce the amount of these chewing gums & stop them. OThrow away all cigarettes you have with you. Having them within reach may increase your temptation. OStart new healthy habits & opt for a healthy lifestyle. OEat healthy diet. OJoin a support group comprising of people who came out of smoking & had undergone the same situation as you. You will get a platform to discuss your queries & together can motivate each other to stay sober & also help others to overcome smoking. If you are not able to do yourself alone, then take professional help. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including smoking. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Consult a psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest. Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from smoking. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist smoking, replace substance-using activities with constructive and rewarding non substance-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. All the best for your effort. Wish you success.

Am smoking person. Am smoking past 10 years. Now I want to stop the smoking habit. Advice me.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Start your stop smoking plan with start s- set a quit date: choose a date within the next 2 weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit, if you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have few days to adjust to the change. T- tell family, friends and co-workers that you plan to quit: let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A- anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting: most people who begin smoking again do so within the first 3 months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigratte cravings. R- remove cigrattes & other products from your home, car and work: throw away all of your cigarettes, lighter, ashtrays and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. T- talk to your doctor about getting help to quit: your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal.

Dear, Don't worry. That is your mother's normal behavior. That is actually helping her to tide over her inside worries. She is trying to open her mind in front of you and you should be a good listener to her. Just help her to open her mind, slowly guide her and don't try to advise her. Slowly and steadily she will adjust herself with the situation. Take care.

How can I increase my concentration level at the time of study I am not able to start my study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. You have not mentioned your age but I assume you are close to 20 years, in which case there may be hormonal changes going on in your system. You may therefore have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.

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. If it is only starting trouble, then I suggest that you do group study or study with another friend but both need to be really serious.

Hello, Take Schwabe’s Alpha-CF and Biocombination-11, both after every 2 hourly for 4 days. Management: -Sponging or bathing with tepid water. The use of a fan or air conditioning may somewhat reduce the temperature and increase comfort. If the temperature reaches the extremely high level of hyperpyrexia, aggressive cooling is required. -Take rest and drink plenty of fluids. -Take light, bland, properly cooked home-made healthy food only. **********Consult again if the fever is accompanied by a severe headache, stiff neck, shortness of breath, or other unusual signs or symptoms.***********
