Just like passive smoking, self criticism is injurious to people around us (our dear ones). It is very demoralizing, keeps happiness at bay in life. Our subconscious mind doesn't differentiate between us and our loved ones. It doesn't accept any failure, which is inevitable part of life.

I think you want to increase iron in your body - if yes, then take care of your diet. Take natural foods, avoid junk food. Have bananas, cheekos, beetroot, guava - these fruits have more iron content than pomegranates & apples. You can also have a few almonds and raisins everyday.

Sir I have mind related problem whenever I have going to study I can understand everything what is written in book but I can't remember.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, this may be true because of your age. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some 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. 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The more you try to forget something from past, the more it disturbs you. Don't try to forget. Forgetting happens automatically. Engage yourself in daily physical and mental activities so that you don't remember. Take care.

Is that possible to leave smoking and how it can be dangerous for life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Of course it is possible to quit smoking although it may appear near impossible. Smoking is always dangerous to life and to the others who inhale the side-stream and secondhand smoke. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

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. 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.

Feeling sad occasionally due to ongoing problems is natural and even healthy. Nobody is happy 100% of the time. You need to worry only if you see signs of a mental illness, like constant low mood, loss of interest, irritability, negative thoughts, suicidal thoughts, disturbed sleep, appetite, etc for more than 2 weeks. Otherwise use simple stress management techniques like slow and deep breathing, distraction, relaxation exercises, etc. Remember one thing. Problems are happening in the world while stress is present only in your mind. Develop a healthy attitude to solve a problem as best as you can and accept some disturbance as an inevitable part of life. Keep some time off every day, every weekend and every 2-3 months for recreation. Eat healthy, exercise regularly and be around happy positive people at least occasionally.

Hi am taking all things seriously, not getting proper sleep, getting angry and tensed just I can see all negative.

Hi am taking all things seriously, not getting proper sleep, getting angry and tensed just I can see all negative.
It is not bad to take things seriously, provided you read them in proper perspective. You yourself have mentioned that you take everything in negative. This is what needs to be corrected. You sem to be reading too much between the lines which gives unrequired dimentions to happenings around you. Take things as they are, evaluate them peacefully without prejudice. Don't react instantly, hold on for some time and over a period you will automatically realize a reduction in your undesired responses like irritation and anger. Try to divert your attention towards activities you like, this will pacify your mind and help in smooth induction of sound sleep.

Feeling stressed during exams is normal but too much anxiety reduces efficiency. Take adequate sleep. Make a workable time table to cover the topics to be prepared. Take time to relax by way of exercise or sports or a creative hobby like singing/ dancing etc regularly. Detressing yourself prevents stress from building up. Talk to famiky or friends. If anxiety is too much and you are unable concentrate or sleep, seek professional help.

Mr. Lybrate user, your brother is suffering from illusions/delusions like which cmes under schizophrenia under psychiatric illness. Inthis condition, he needs proper care& attention from family members, close intimate people, like wife or siblings, parents. First one should know the reason for developing such fears, & his original attitude, now the changed bhaviour& in b/w the reasons like any shocks, mental stress, any subconscious worries he has, any conflicts, his failures, etc all should be understood to treat him properly, he need counscelling also. In this condition, firts doctor also should be bery careful to understand the reason, so that they should be more friendly to develop frinedly intimacy. &moreover you should not say directly that its psychiatric propblem & need to see psychiatrist. In homeo, if patient& with the information given by family members, by understanding origin, causative factors, by giivng suitable medicines, he will develop gradual improvement. But not so quickly as you are expecting. In allopathy, by taking medicines, he will get improvement but there will be side effcets, & adverse effcts are there. He needs more famly members co operation& support now.

Hi lybrate-user, panic attacks can be cured and the sooner you seek help, the better. With treatment, you can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of panic and regain control of your life. I suggest you to go to a professional asap with somebody close. Meanwhile - Move your body frequently—don't sit for more than an hour Learn to breathe slowly and deeply and don't hold your breath Stay closely connected to supportive family and friends Allow for relaxation to be a part of your daily routine Reduce your intake of alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine Get the amount of restful sleep that you require.

My case may take your time but I request you to pay attention now we are a family of five as I just got married. My parents relationship were not healthier since starting. But they do love both of us. I left my home in 2006 for college and then job and it impacts my mother mind hard. Since 6-7 years I am noticing she lost her confidence. She keep standing in the kitchen for 3-4 hours and doing nothing. Starts looking the roof and start laughing and she never eat food with anyone. It' s not that my father is a bad guy. We all tried to understand her mindset but not possible. Now my sister also moved out of karnal for job and now just my parents are left at home. Now when I see my mom, I want to help her. I don' t know what exactly is going in her mind and she never shared her feelings. She just keep calling me and ask for my health and food. I do worry for her and she is not in good state of mind. I saw her sometime talking to wall or something. My father also tries to help her but we don' t know how to handle or do? i' m ready to do anything just to bring her back to normal. Please help!

Your mother had gone through a very stressful and hard life after marriage, I think. She had her desires suppressed. She could not express herself, openly and this led to her present state of mind. For her treatment proper counselling is required and certain psychotic drugs to be recommended after counselling.
