Hello, Practicing yoga helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head.

Dear, panic attacks and anxiety disorder can be managed with the help of psychotherapy, meditation, exercise and life style changes. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

My Son is 2.5 years old. He is fine as regards to health. He has a very good intellectual capabilities, he can remember the names of all my family members, can easily recite the stories that I tell him and can also talk in a fluent manner. He also can also identify the pictures in his study book. But as and when he is growing old he is getting scared of even the things that he used to enjoy earlier like riding a swing, or he gets too much scared of the balloon or crackers. He use to hang his breath when he was less than 1.5 years, but now he has no such problem. I just want to know how I tackle this problem, I create stories where he enjoys blowing of balloons or riding swings or blowing crackers. He enjoys them. But he is still too scared of things. Me and my also use to be scared of things when we were kids. So just need idea how to tackle this.

Dear lybrate-user. Children are social creatures. They always associate things with something else which gives them scare. Here, he is afraid of sound may be because he associated the sound with some other painful or worrying experience. You have to remove that association. Stories will not help. Tip- blow a balloon or cracker and immediately offer something which the child likes. Repeat the exercise many times. Now the child will associate the noise with something pleasurable and he will not be scared. You can experiment with other things also in the same way. But before that I advise you to speak to me, regarding the swings, the child is scared because of the balance problem created by the eustachian tube. It will take time, but the child will get used to it. Don't worry. Take care.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I shall provide you with easy and effective learning methods. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, hello! first of all please do not opt for medication straight away. Try to release your stress by allowing yourself to'let go' of anything that is making you stress. If there is any kind of negative trigger in your life, just release the control of that trigger, and allow it to go. This will help you release the extra burden that you are carrying. If you believe in god, then close your eyes to imagine god carrying your burdens. Imagine god saying to you, to not be anxious or worried, he has your back covered. Try and surrender all your pain and stress in the hands of god. If you do not believe in god, then just think'yourself' to be your best friend. Write down your stress on the piece of paper and burn it, this should help you a little. Rest I am always there to help you more. Stay blessed. Regards.

I have been able to control my smoking habit, I been been able to curb it from 8 in a day to 3 in a day. Honestly I do wanna quit it or bring it down to 2 in a day, What I wish to know is how much does it affect it I consume 3 in a day, will it be equally destructive as it was before?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It will be less destructive to smoke less but the habit continues and that is what is a problem. When you are addicted, reduction is not much of an achievement. There is no such thing as a ‘little addiction’. So any attempt must be complete, abrupt, and immediate. Even a delay by 24 hours can sabotage the resolve. With epilepsy to boot, smoking a packet a day is a deadly addiction. But it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night! Since you want to quit I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. 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 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. Perseverance with it until you are completely over it, is the key. You are still young and all the ill-effects of the habit can be restored and you can regain a lot of the losses: monetarily too.

Ension headaches are very common among individuals and can range in pain severity. If you���re anxious, stressed, depressed, or have experienced recent trauma to the head, your headaches are probably stemming from this. Though this type of headache is common, it can occur any time, not just in the early morning. To prevent early morning headaches, follow these guidelines: Get enough sleep, but don���t oversleep. The right amount of sleep can reduce stress on your body and the chance of a headache. Not oversleeping also prevents unnecessary fatigue. Eat a healthy diet. Many headache types are related to poor nutrition. Counter this by eating healthy foods and avoiding sugar and junk food. Avoid overconsumption of alcohol and other substances. This will prevent hangover headaches. Check with your psychiatrist.

You father is going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

For the stress, you must get professional help. This will vary from individual to individual: it will mostly have to do with fear and fro some with anger. Then I recommend the following actions to be taken and considered: 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 is 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.

Is there any side affects of having marijuana. I want to quit from it but I can't. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

That is the effect of marijuana and that is also the catch in it: its pleasant effects and creative stimulus are enticing but so are the dangers. Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here?s what WebMD has to say: ?No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That?s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don?t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: ? Dizziness ? Shallow breathing ? Red eyes and dilated pupils ? Dry mouth ? Increased appetite ? Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you?re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.? It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ?cross hallucinations? i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!! If you are finding it very difficult to give it up on your own then admit yourself in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep yourself clean forever. You will need to alter your lifestyle, change your friends, your haunts, your habits, etc. You must learn to have fun in clean ways. You must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally you must be able to handle your feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach you about emotions and how to handle them.
