Death is inevitable in human life, no doubt it is painful but one has to accept this reality. There is no point in remain in grief and keeping away from others, this will make you mentally weak. Be happy and remain in good relatives, friends company. Do some yoga and meditation, visit near by religious place to get mental peace. Time is god a great healer, every thing will be alright, wait and watch with calm and cool mind.

World No Tobacco Day
"World No Tobacco Day" is on 31st May. It is observed every year, all over the world to draw attention of policy makers, law enforcers, public, towards the health hazards of Tobacco, and advocating for policies to reduce its consumption, be it in any form like smoking or chewing.

Every year WHO gives a theme for the World No Tobacco Day. The theme this year is ?Countries to Work together to end the illicit trade on Tobacco Products?.

Tobacco is the leading cause of morbidity, mortality & impoverishment
Tobacco kills nearly 60 lakhs (six million) people each year, of which more than 600 000 are non-smokers dying from breathing second-hand smoke. Tobacco caused 100 million deaths in 20th century. As per current trends, it may cause one billion deaths in 21st century. If no action is taken now, tobacco related deaths will increase to more than eight million per year by 20130.Unfortunately, 80% of these deaths will be in low & middle income countries, and we are one of them.
Tobacco-related diseases are responsible for one in 10 adult deaths worldwide.
Every 6 seconds, one person dies of tobacco-related disease.
In India alone, it kills nearly 8 lakhs people per year.
A study has shown that every day 55,000 new children take up tobacco habits in India, whereas a mere 2% of Indian adults quit the habit, that also, often only after falling ill. ICMR has also shown that out of 100 young smokers today, nearly 50% are going to die of tobacco-related disease. People who smoking and/or chew tobacco are likely to have:
Fifty times more chances of getting oral cancer.
Twelve times more likely to die from lung cancer.
Ten times more likely to die from some form of lung disease.
Ten times more likely to die from cancer of the larynx.
Six times more likely to die of heart disease.
Twice as likely to die of a stroke.
And the list goes on & on ?

There is a plethora of evidence-based information on the health hazards of tobacco,

Dear, politics and competition are an integral part of any profession and you should learn to overcome those stresses. They are stress and emotional problems. Understanding may not be enough. You should be educated thoroughly. Being a person in this field for many years, I think I will be able to help you. Take care.

Sometimes I loose control of myself and get very aggressive. I feel insanely angry and at the same time I've this urge to just shut all the thoughts and not let the situation go out of hands. In this time I tend to do stuff that I regret later or at times instantly. I end up hurting the people I care about the most. Also sometimes it happens and I don't remember any of it. It even the reason for which it happened . Tired of feeling guilty and hopeless in a way for not being able to help it.

The fact that you remember being unnecessarily aggressive or angry at someone against your will suggests that you have an issue of impulse control. Your submission that you feel guilty of your actions just reiterates the same thing. Most of the times it is untreated and long standing stress and anxiety which leads to such problems but it would be more appropriate if you conuslt a psychiatrist in your vicinity for a complete evaluation and management. You may consult me for any further queries or online assistance for the same.

In case of epilepsy since you are on meds for 3 years, if the seizures are completely controlled and eeg is normal, a trial of gradual taper of medicines can be given. But always taper medicines after consulting your neurologist. And there is always a chance of recurrence so that risk has to be borne in mind.

You are deprived and need physical expression. I also presume you are watching plenty of porn? This aggravates the issue. Focus on the reason why you are staying separately and what you will achieve by it. Also Try vigorous sport and games which can release pent up emotions. Masturbation can become an addition and also disrupt your future sexual drive.

Well it is not possible for mind to always be relaxed and always be happy. Life always has its ups and downs, stress and anxiety. The main thing here is to maintain a balance between your body and mind, sharing your problems with others, not falling prey to stress. Live your life and enjoy it before it melts. Let there be stress no worry just try to overcome it.

I am 21 years old. But my memory is very poor. I can't remember a simple thing some times. I am also facing aging problem. People who never meet me thought that I am 36 or 40 years old. Please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your advanced ageing may your genetic problem and 7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

The depression may have disturbed her sleep patterns considerably and the medication may have had some impact too. Sometimes, apart from the depression, she may not be aware of stress because it has not yet manifest itself in any obvious or disturbing way. Her disturbed sleep itself can be a cause, or concern for stress because she has grossly disturbed her biorhythm. Whatever the situation, she may still follow some good habits that will help induce sleep, even if it takes care of the symptom only. There are 86 diseases that are directly affected by lack of sleep i.e. less than 6 hours per night. She must talk to a professional and deal with the stress. Yoga, meditation, and stress management exercises with definitely help. She must also do vigorous exercise every day, whether she gets sleep or not. She should wake up at a uniform time every day, even if she doesn?t get sleep. She could sleep in the afternoon but try not to exceed 20 minutes to catch up with lost sleep, and that too only if necessary. Ideally, it is better not to sleep during the day at all. Even if she does not get sleep let her get to bed at a uniform time like 10.30 and just lie down and read some non-stimulating material. In the lying down position the body tends to regress to a childlike state and will induce sleep. Do not get up to switch off the light, and so you need to arrange for a bed lamp that can be put off at a stretch of a hand. She should not take alcohol, tea, coffee, soft drinks etc. before going to bed. A warm glass of milk before bedtime improves sleep for various reasons. Have dinner early and always make it a pure carbohydrate meal that can be had with any vegetables. Make the room as dark as possible but warm and cozy. Block out all forms of light entering the room through windows. The room must have reasonable cross-ventilation. There must not be any LED lights nearby your bed. Reduce all kinds of sounds around her: light music may be put on if it induces sleep for her with the ?sleep? function on. In rare cases she could watch TV in a lying position and switch off when she feels drowsy. There are some odors that could stimulate prevent sleep from happening; kindly examine that ? this includes perfumes, soap scents, and even laundry detergents. Check out if a warm or cold bath induces sleep for her, and do that before retiring. If she has exhausted herself through exercise, she will find it easier to relax into a stupor. Contemplate on calm and relaxing thoughts while in bed: decontaminate her mind from all the stresses of the day before going to bed. She could acquire a recording of gradual relaxation and guided relaxation routines. Sleep with her head facing North, and do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. Sleep as far as possible on her left ear. Try these for now and if these fail she must meet with a counselor and work out other matters that may be causing the insomnia.

I am 45 years old male and I keep thinking about my future and imminent death and old age issues. Some times I don't feel that I have not done enough to feel secure. Not many friends and I have almost no social life. Some times I miss my night sleep due to anxiety and it shoots up when I have to travel and stay in a hotel with windows sealed. Because of this I avoided going to US this July.

You are incapacitating yourself. Everybody must be responsible, respectful and functional at all times to remain healthy as a personality. And the beauty is that it is never too late for anything. Go out and socialize. Being a recluse will on give you time to entertain negative thoughts and develop anxiety. This is no way to live life. We are social animals, gregarious by nature and we need each other. In that​ context, we need to develop until we become interdependent.

THINK BETTER LIVE BETTER. WELLNESS SERIES
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is talking therapies that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

CBT cannot remove your problems but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you crack this cycle by breaking down overwhelming problems into smaller parts and showing you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.

Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis. CBT has been shown to be an effective way of treating a number of different mental health conditions. In addition to depression or anxiety disorders, CBT can also help people with obsessive disorder, postphobias,eating disorderssuch as anorexiaand bulimia, sleep problems such as insomnia, problems related to alcohol abuse,irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

CBT can help you to change how you think (cognitive) and what you do (behaviour). These changes can help you to feel better and breathe better. Once you are de-stressed, there is less cognitive load and your breathing centre in brain is relaxed and less stimulated. It looks for ways to improve your state of mind now.

A situation ? a problem, event or difficult situation.

From this can follow thoughts, emotions, physical feelings and actions. Each of these areas can affect the others.

How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. All these areas of life can connect like this: fiveareas.

What happens in one of these areas can affect all the others. There are helpful and unhelpful ways of reacting to most situations, depending on how you think about it. The way you think can be helpful or unhelpful.

The Situation: You have had a bad day. You are fed up? Go out shopping. As you walk down the road, someone you know walks by and, apparently, ignores you.

This starts a cascade of thoughts, emotions and action which can range from concern for the other person to actually getting in touch with the other person to find if all is well with him.

The negative way of dealing with it involves being down on yourself imagining the person does not like you, complaining of cramps or illness and finally going home to avoid the person.

The same situation has led to two very different results; depending on how you thought about the situation. How you think has affected how you felt and what you did.

So, in case you thought negatively, you have to change your thoughts and actions, pinpoint the problem, address it and find goals.

Then move towards achieving them. Evidence shows CBT works.
