When I get some nervous my body stars shaking too much and then I can't do any work rightly. Please advise.

Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Frustration - 4 Simple Ways You Can Overcome it

Frustration - 4 Simple Ways You Can Overcome it

In some cases, frustration can tend to be positive and can give you another perspective or view on things. It can also give you the ability to continue going further until you achieve your objective. However, there are times when you are going in circles and the dissatisfaction makes you frustrated and this frustration can cloud your mind and judgment. To avoid that from happening, there are certain approaches that will help you overcome your frustration:

  1. Be present in the moment: When you are frustrated, you tend to think about a lot of things. This keeps the individual completely occupied with different kinds of thoughts. Even if you try to avoid it or distract yourself, you again start to remember a disappointment from your past. You need to snap out of those thoughts and calm yourself down by centring your brain and thoughts on what is presently going on around you. You can do so in the following ways:
  2. Concentrate on relaxing: Take a seat, close your eyes and simply concentrate on the live events and concentrate on them for one to two minutes. Take quiet and marginally deeper breaths than regular and inhale with your stomach and not the chest. Concentrate on what is around you as of now. The sun sparkling in through your window, the children playing out on the road, the vehicles or the individuals passing by. Take in the details.
  3. Try to be happy with what you have right now: After you have pulled your concentration and thoughts back to where they can be most useful, focus on what is still positive in your life. The easiest and least demanding approach to do so is to centre it on acknowledging what you do have in your life right now. The most unimportant of things at this point can prove to be the most beneficial. For example:
    • A warm home and a rooftop over your head.
    • Water to drink.
    • Getting to eat great food.
    • Access to the internet and other forms of technology that make life easy.
    • Your loved ones.
  4. Focus on what you can do at this moment: With the amount of frustration and anger you might be feeling, it is important for you to concentrate on what you can do at the moment i.e. at present. It might involve figuring out what has been the cause for your frustration and how it can be dealt with right now or what the alternatives for it are.

Then again, you could also take your time to understand that you may have taken a lot of pressure or things have been extreme. Hence, you have to take some time or a couple of days to simply unwind, deal with yourself and maybe calm down a bit. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I feel so depressed. I feel sadness always. I do not want to meet someone. Always want to eat every time. Do not want to do my favourite things. Want to cry some times.

You are not happy. Something is bothering you. But probably you are not able to understand what is causing this sadness and why you feel like crying. I guess you have lot of suppressed emotions. Please try to understand what is going on in your mind. Do not try to avoid or neglect your true feelings. Kindly talk to a counsellor who will help you to get in touch with your innermost feelings and who also will help you to relieve you of the stress caused by this. Once your suppressed emotions get a healthy outlet, you will start feeling lighter and then you will start enjoying life. All the best.

I am 19 years old and I am not able to study I have my major studies I have tried a lot of things but nothing much happened. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Try the following sincerely for good results: 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 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. 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 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.

Can you give me tips for concentration?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Find an appropriate study environment. Generally, it is a good idea to eliminate distractions as much as possible while studying. Find a quiet area, such as a private room. Or, if you like fresh air, go outside to an area that is reasonably free of distractions. Turn off any electronics that you don't need, especially cell phones and computers (provided you don't need a computer). Turn off music players or listen to music without words. Clear away anything you do not need and keep things organized to reduce stress and allow for better concentration. See how to concentrate on studies if you are around noisy people, or can't stop the chatter going on in your head, turn on some white noise. There are websites that are free and very helpful. Gather your study materials such as notes, textbooks and papers. If using a computer, exit out of email and messengers. Increase concentration while studying step 3. Jpg3 take breaks from subjects so you don't get bored. Switch between subjects but be careful not to mix them up. Find an effective study method. Some people use flash cards for memorization, but there are many other ways to study. Invent your own if none seem to work for you! use the sq3r method for reading" survey" the book by skimming for titles, subtitles, captions, and anything else that could be important" question" by turning all of the titles and subheadings into study questions to track your reading once you finish a chapter or section" read" to find the answers to your study questions then answer any questions at the beginnings or ends of the chapter to make sure you learned what you needed to" recite" your questions orally and try to answer them. Use notes from the text but be sure to re-state them in your own words" review" the reading afterwards to keep it fresh in your mind for when you need it in school. If you find something you don't understand, research it further online or in a book to understand it better. Study well in advance. Instead of cramming everything into your head the night before the test, start studying a little bit earlier so you won't get overwhelmed. Always have a determined attitude. Do not let your own selfish/foolish acts get in the way of your concentration, but have determination to finish what you have started.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

My daughter is 34 Years old and schizophrenic for 14 years. Is this curable?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
Hello, I believe you might be knowing a lot about schizophrenia after being a care giver for your daughter. But let me start with what it is all about, schizophrenia is a disorder of brain that affects the thought process & most commonly appears in late teens or early adulthood. The symptoms might vary from hallucinations to delusions( positive symptoms ) or irritability to anxiety or intense fear. These are relatively easy to to treat. Early intervention might always give or yield good results, but in people with long standing illness there are greater chances of developing a deficit syndrome or negative symptoms. That are lack of initiative or drive to do any activity, indifference towards people or surroundings, decreased responsiveness & decreased self care. These symptoms lead to deterioration of the personality of the individual. Dealing with this syndrome is a great challenge for the treating doctor & is equally or more difficult for the individual & care givers to overcome it. Drugs alone would not help alleviate this condition & a combination of medicines & psychological measures with a persistent effort from the care giver is required. Now coming to your question is it curable? the answer is. It is treatable. Treatable here means controllable or transformable, like in an individual with diabetes, the blood sugar levels can be controlled with some measures, here the symptoms can be controlled to restore a normal life or based on the severity can be managed to improve the quality of life & performance levels of the individual. Please discuss with your treating psychiatrist about the various aspects influencing the treatment. Starting with the patients understanding of her problem, the need to adhere with the treatment protocol, the improvement which is acceptable or achievable & various factors influencing the outcome in your daughter. This would help the doctor individualise the treatment & also will help you in improving the functionality of individual. Which will in turn contribute to a better quality of life.

For vitamin d levels as low as 4, I would suggest arachitol injection of 6 lac units taken once every 15 days for 3 cycles. Follow up with the satchet later on. Also take diet consisting of ragi, fruits, milk and milk products. Add some regular exercise.

Dear Yousuf, Welcome to lybrate. Porn addiction is due to obsession to porn and sex. Obsession is due to lack of activities. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please consult a psychologist for more advice. Take care.
