Hello lybrate-user, our mind is like a monkey and many thoughts will come which make sense and some don't make sense at all. It is important to train the mind to think rationally, optimistically and healthy so that we can be more productive and peaceful in our life. For this purpose, I suggest that you remember the reality that you didn't come in front of any car and you are safe. Even if you do come in front of the car, you have enough mind to protect yourself by running away or telling the driver to slow down. Which means that you are in control and not helpless. 2. Thus reminding this yourself when ever you think irrationally, will help control the anxiety and fear and replace with positive, confidence and optimistic thoughts and feelings.

My father who is around 65 year old is under depression as told by some doctors. He is having sleeping disorders. Sometime he sleeps whole day and night and sometime doesn't sleep at all. Sometime he speaks too much and sometimes keeps mum. Sometimes he eats properly and most of the time deny food. Sometimes even wanna die. He says that he don't wanna live. I have consulted few doctors as well but medicines weren't much effective as of now. Also done with brain mri and other health check ups that shows normal. Please suggest what to do. Also suggest some good psychiatrist in delhi ncr area if it is really a case of depression. Also suggest the possible treatment for him.

Dear, your father could be disappointed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were your father disappointed in the near past? I think he is disappointed due to his health conditions. He needs your love and affection. Treat him as if he is your child and constantly motivate him. He could be sad because he fear to die and now tries to understand life and death. If you motivate him constantly, he may come back to life as a wise person. Take care. Convey my love to your father.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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 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 you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. 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.

Your Hb is normal in range and no worry about it. You have not discussed the reason for your depression. Fine, if you seems irritable with talking to people, lack of concentration in work or education, not interested in watching TV or studies, feeling less appetite, not having proper sleep, feeling worthless, dull looking are all the symptom of depression. In that case, spend time with your family members, do not isolate yourself, go out for walk in the morning and in the night (if possible) at least for half an hour, but walking in the morning is necessary which relieves you from stress or depression. Though not feeling hungry, take food properly in the right time a little sum. Make yourself engaged in any activities compulsorily, or listening to music (not the song) will help you feel much better. If not resolved from the above suggestions, revert back for further discussions.

It is both ways lybrate-user. Sugar level changes due to depression, either overeating and/or lack of exercise. Depression comes due to low sugar or high sugar levels. Both have few common causative factors. Both diabetes and depression need to be treated side by side.

Hello lybrate-user stress is somehow good thing in education system, without it we can't progress. Other side stress is depend on how you take matter or how you react matter. In successful life study or knowledge takes only 15%, rest of 85% are how you take matter and attitude so live in lightly without forgetting your target few tips will help you * take good balance diet * take proper sleep * don't worry if 5 marks come less * tragedy of today will be funny thing for tomorrow for you * take chyavanprash 1 tsp in morning * use ghee & milk in diet * you can start some ayurveda medicine, like brahmi, sankhpuspi etc.

I am 17 and have very bad addiction of smoking plese tell me most helpful tips to leave smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young to have a? bad addiction? to smoking. 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. 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.

Hi, laziness may have to do with depleting energy resources within you. Make sure you have proper diet and sleep. Before going into other reasons, get yourself checked with a physician/doctor. Also try to organise yourself and have a balanced routine with due time to be given to all activities including studies. And remember'being cool' is not about following others. Hope this helps.

If you want better results while studying, revision is the key. Repeated revision consolidates the information in the brain and helps to retain the information. Other than that, try a daily exercise of recalling your entire day in as much detail as possible before you sleep. Initially only important or superficial details are recalled, but with practice minor details can also be recalled. Be more organized; make lists. Use acronyms and mnemonic devices to help you remember. Take 45 minute slots followed by a 5-15 minute break. Eat and at proper times. Drink plenty of water. Find time for exercise or meditation. Keep time for proper revision at end of study session. Revise before you sleep.

Hi there ~ sinusitis and headaches are common. If you feel heaviness in the head, pain worse with stooping forwards or bending forwards, runny nose with a post-nasal drip and also problems with itchy throat nose and ear block, you probably have severe sinusitis, either allergic, viral or bacterial. If it does not resolve by this evening or tomorrow morning despite good food, adequate sleep and plenty of fluids, please consult a general physician. Hope this helps.

Its perfectly normal, dont feel guilty about it. Even in a relationship adults having sex outside is quite normal. In life love, passion and lust have thin boundaries. As long as it is a consensual sex between 2 consenting adults then it is medically not wrong. But different societies, and culture promote monogamy as the way of life and consider these events as ethically wrong. Whether this is right, varies between individual perception according to their own brought up, cultural values, and knowledge. What is right for one is wrong for another. So don't make life complicated and live as it comes. Enjoy life without making others or yourself unhappy.
