I want to lose my health? Please give me valuable tips. How can mentally free also give information?
Thanks for the query. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice,  half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush. Buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the grocery store if you forget to bring healthful food from home. When you can’t avoid dining at a restaurant, opt for a salad as a starter, and always ask for the dressing on the side. Clear soups, lean meats, seafood and grain-based dishes like roti, whole grain bread are other good choices. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

You can become whatever you want if you believe in yourself. You have an anger-related depression that will make it difficult to concentrate. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. 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, 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 the family goes for counseling.

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 will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

From the past month sometimes have a felling of suicide and sometimes I feel I should have a brain checkup. From the past month everything is like weird, I do not like to do the stuff I usually do the most when I'm sad or upset like listening songs, playing games, to find new ways of enjoyment, talking to friends, hanging out and some more such stuff. I think I have become emotionless I feel nothing means I do not get angry at any cost , I do not get sad even if some of my own family member or a close person hurts me a lot, I'm not even happy, I do not think this is due to hormonal changes, cause I had these hormonal fluctuations 2 years ago and I had no such reactions in the last year. I have tried to discuss these problems with my friends but no one had a solution which I could adopt for a change in my mind set. It is my humble request to you sir / ma'am please give the best solution so that I can overcome my mental problems. Thank you.

There is all likelihood that some unresolved childhood issue is cropping up for the last time seeking a resolution. If you or your parents know of anything that happened from your prenatal days till now, then take that information and consult with a counselor first. Suicidal tendencies may have very deep rooted life-threatening events that remained buried and is now surfacing. This is speculation and can only be verified by your parents. If all this is true, it then appears like you have touched upon an important matter to resolve. Otherwise, you may carry a permanent negative trait into adulthood and beyond and suffer unnecessary difficulties. See this as an eye-opener and an opportunity to sort out something that has long-term bearings.

My grandson is 20 month as of now he is not speaking nor responding doctors are predicting Autism can you suggest what to do.

M.Sc Applied Psychology, Advanced Diploma Child Guidance & Counselling
Psychologist, Delhi
Dear Lybrate user Please give proper stimulation and time to the child to grow and develop. It's too early to label a child as having autism. First get your grandson hearing test done, because if hearing is not appropriate then it could lead to language delay. Another thing is you can try giving him language exposure like labelling the door as door with the words marked over it. Recite rhymes to him, tell him bed time stories to him. Have patience, all the best.

Hi,
I had a breakup last December. And it's been three months but I'm not able to move on. I have even got a job now ...
First understand why break up happens! When things do not go smoothly as expected for a person one of them breaks up. Right! So why are you wasting time on a wrong relationship instead of finding a right partner. Each bad experience paves the way to realisation of what you want in a life partner. Better to break up now then live in a life long messy marriage. Move on and enjoy life. Work on what you need to do. Rather than what would be good for later on. Remember happy moments and keep them with you for life. The sad moments remove. You have one life. Live it. Go with the flow than against it. You are not God. He has designed something for you. Enjoy the journey of life. Thanks.

When you are giving exams, then it could help you to do away with activities which will not take you towards your goal. Time management, distressing though exercising, socialising, getting enough sleep, drinking enough water will help you along your path. You can get back to living a regular pattern of living once your exams are done if they are more important for you right now.

How To Manage Stress?

How To Manage Stress?

What is stress??

There are situations in life when a person is required to perform beyond his/her normal capacity, or situations when some expectations are not met. This creates anxiety, fear and anger. This is a situation where a person feels inadequate, under-confident and experiences loss of control. This affects a person's physical and mental wellbeing. This feeling of fear, anxiety, restlessness is commonly known as "tension or stress".

Symptoms of Stress :

  1. Anger and Aggression: While under stress a person starts doubting his/her own capacity and efficiency because he/she feels inadequate or incapable of performing certain tasks. This creates a lot of anger or frustration and sometime, may result into aggressive behaviour. 
  2. Irritability: Under stress people get irritated for no reason. There is loss of patience, loss of sense of humour.
  3. Sleep Disorders: A person under stress may not be able to sleep at all or in some cases sleep excessively.
  4. Eating Disorders: A person under stress may lose appetite or in some cases, tend to overeat resulting in harmful effects on body.
  5. Anxiety: Stress may cause a lot of anxiety and restlessness. The person under stress may not to able to concentrate and unable to focus on any activity, making things more complicated.
  6. Depression: In a few cases a person under a lot of stress may go into depression.
  7. High BP: Body and mind are closely connected. Hence stress in mind creates stress in the body and under stress, blood pressure may rise.
  8. High Sugar Level: Stress may increase the blood sugar levels.
  9. Headache or Unexplained Body Pains: Stress may cause headache or body aches in different parts of the body, without any physical reason for it. 

Sometimes, there may not be any symptoms for stress but the trauma manifests in the form to heart attack, Stroke etc.

What causes stress ?

  1. Relationship Issues - Conflicts in relationships is a major cause of stress.
  2. Lifestyle - Working for long hours, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy food habits, along with insatiable urge for money causes a lot of stress.
  3. High expectations from oneself and from others - The peer pressure, the pressure of constant deadlines builds up a huge stress. When a person has very high expectations from himself/herself without corresponding efforts, there is a fear of failure which causes lot of tension. At the same time, having unrealistic expectations from others also is a definite reason for disappointments, resulting in stress.
  4. Physical and Emotional Abuse - When a person is physically or emotionally abused and unable to defend himself/herself for various reasons, it causes frustration. This results in anger and stress.
  5. Competition - Unhealthy competitions with others create a feeling of inadequency and result in lower self-esteem and sadness, thereby causing stress.
  6. Health Issues - Chronic and serious health issues cause lot of tension.
  7. Suppressed Emotions - Lack of freedom to express own emotions and feelings, amounts to stress.
  8. Lack of Assertiveness - Inability to say "No", when wanting to say so, inability to fight for one's own rights, causes tension and anger.
  9. Boredom - Lack of creative/interesting occupation may cause stress especially in old people or people with physical disabilities.
  10. Low self esteem, feeling hopeless and helpless - If a person has low self esteem and does not value oneself, it causes lots of negativity and stress.

Why stress management is important?
Body and mind affect each other's functioning. When the mind is stressed out, it gets reflected in the body in the form of high blood pressure, high sugar levels, indigestion, acidity, heartburn, ulcers, skin rashes, headache, nausea, cancer, eating disorders, psychosomatic pains etc. It may trigger asthma, migraine etc.

Because of these harmful effects of stress, the body's capacity to function reduces. At times, it may cause serious threat to one's life. Hence, it is very important to learn to relieve and also to manage stress, in order to have a long and healthy life.

There are a number of ways to relieve stress:

  1. Sleep, take rest, relax.
  2. Take a break from daily routine, do something different, take a short vacation.
  3. Go for a walk/jog/run/cycling. Practice Yoga, meditation, deep muscle relaxation, etc.
  4. Spend time with friends and family.
  5. Play with children.
  6. Spend time with pets.
  7. Pursue a hobby like reading, gardening, painting, music, dance, singing, cooking, etc.
  8. Recreation - Watch a movie, play, picnic, go for a drive or shopping.
  9. Pamper yourself with beauty treatments, massage, or your favourite food/drinks. 

How to manage Stress? 
Stress is inevitable part of life now. Right from a kid going to Pre-Nursery school to senior citizens staying alone at homes and having severe health problems; all are under lot of stress. No one can avoid stress. But there are certain ways to manage your stress-

  1. Self-awareness. Learn more about your own self. Understand what induces stress in you, what tasks are difficult for you, what situations are difficult for you and then try to figure out the reasons why it is so. Try to resolve or modify your thoughts and attitude.
  2. Identify stressors and explore options. Once you identify what is causing your stress, try to find more options to resolve your issues.
  3. Reasonable Expectations and Feasible Goals. Have reasonable expectations from yourself and from others. Have goals which are possible for you to achieve.
  4. Learn assertive techniques. Learn to express your feelings, learn to fight for your own rights, understand and respect other's rights.

Try to minimise stress in life and lead a happy healthy life.

How to avoid hypertension, my body start shivering while I am getting angry on quarrel.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
How to avoid hypertension, my body start shivering while I am getting angry on quarrel.
Hi, 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. Exercise more. To help lower your blood pressure, you should incorporate more exercise into your daily routine. You can try both aerobic exercises such as walking, jogging, or swimming and resistance or strength training. The american heart association recommends that for overall cardiovascular health, adults get at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity at least 5 days per week for a total of 150 minutes. You can also get at least 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity at least 3 days per week for a total of 75 minutes and moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity at least 2 days per week. If you feel that this is more than you can manage, the aha insist that you do as much as you can to start. Any activity is better than no activity. Do your best to get as much exercise as you can. Even if it is going for a short walk, that is better than sitting on the couch. This can have the added benefit of helping you lose weight. Both a healthy diet and exercise should result in weight loss, which can lead to significant falls in blood pressure. Cut down on alcohol: heavy drinkers who want to limit their alcohol intake should slowly lower intake over the course of several weeks. Heavy drinkers who suddenly cut back alcohol intake put themselves at risk to develop severe high blood pressure quit smoking and limit caffeine consumption. Use herbal remedies. Although not scientifically verified, there are several herbal remedies which are thought to help hypertension. As a rule, however, don't substitute these unverified herbal remedies for proven scientific advice. Instead, supplement your diet with them if they are approved by your healthcare provider. Try holly leaf extract, which is used as a tea in china and is supposed to help blood vessels enhance circulation and blood flow to the heart. You can also try hawthorn berry extract, which is supposed to improve the supply of blood to the heart and help to support the metabolism of the heart. Taking garlic extract is supposed to help prevent heart disease. High blood pressure and cholesterol are also rumored to be somewhat controlled by garlic. Hibiscus, which you can get as a supplement or drink in tea, can act like a diuretic and may have actions that mimic medications such as ace inhibitors and hypertension medications. You can also try ginger-cardamom tea, which is used in india to naturally reduce blood pressure. Drinking coconut water, which contains potassium and magnesium, can help with normal muscle function. Taking fish oil, which is a concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, may help with fat metabolism and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke include lots of fruits and seeds in your diet. All the best.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Nervous Breakdown?

MCh - Neurosurgery, MBBS

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Nervous Breakdown?

Nervous Breakdown is not a medical term. It is connected to health problems associated with depression and anxiety. It often results from extreme stress and need medical help to overcome it. Although there are physical and emotional symptoms of this state of being, people often miss it. Here is a list of some common signs and symptoms related to nervous breakdown:

  1. It is hard to concentrate: It is often seen that a person finds it hard to concentrate when he is on the verge of mental breakdown. While a little stress helps in better functioning of the memory, chronic stress can prove to be lethal for the human mind and body. According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Center, it is found that too much stress results in the secretion of a hormone called cortisol which deteriorates the memory.
  2. Food becomes your best friend: An increased level of stress makes the body release certain hormones such as adrenaline for a flight response. When this hormone wears off, cortisol asks the body to replenish energy from food. This hormonal reaction results in emotional eating. As a result of stress, certain high sugar items such as ice-cream and chocolate give a good feeling to the body. According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association it was found that 40 percent out of 3000 individual seek pleasure in high fat high sugar items.
  3. An upset stomach: Often before nervous breakdown, many people report symptoms related to IBS. A patient might also go through certain other symptoms such as stomach aches, abdominal pain and diarrhea. These indicators are related to overwhelming stress more often than not. According to a recent study conducted by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, it is found that more than half the people suffering from IBS have anxiety or depression related disorder.
  4. Slouching becomes your favorite activity: Slouching is a major indicator of stress. A study conducted by the San Francisco State University in 2012 revealed that slouching drains more energy than skipping. Poor posture and depression is a common phenomenon in people suffering from anxiety and stress related disorder. If this is occurring way too frequently, it is time to consult a doctor and get professional help.
  5. A hyperactive nose: People with hypertension, anxiety, depression and stress often find themselves with a hyperactive sense of smell. A study conducted by the University of Wisconsin revealed that when a person is exposed to disturbing images of crashes or accident, he is often found to have a distorted sense of smell. Even neutral smells can be mistaken as foul ones by patients suffering from anxiety. If this sounds familiar, it is time to visit a doctor.

You must meet with a counselor and a doctor immediately to rule out any serious issue. Although these signs are not looking good. You must continue with the counseling for a long time and do not self-regulate your medication. If you respond well to the treatment, you should be well on yoru way to recovery due to your age and commitment. Please take your parents along and let them share whatever they remember about your early childhood.

I am currently working in a service based company in Bangalore and my salary is below the average as compared to national average (around 20K per month). There are other things like when I came to Bangalore I literally saw number to girls having multiple sex relationship and they don't feel guilty about it. Now that's my opinion, I may be wrong but again I don't like such women's. That being said sometime I feel bad for people who are married to women's like that. Is it normal that I having such thoughts or it's inappropriate. One more thing I would like to say is that I believe I have as much potential as others do but every-time I fail to recognise it. I think I have failed my parents and they are not happy with me. And last but not the least PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. I have been told or say reminded by a lot of people that I am UGLYand even I think that is true because honestly no girls give a damn about me, every-one simply ignores me. Please I need help. I can't live with these thoughts any longer. Regards,

You need to grow up. Any adult having consensual sexual relationship with another adult is not wrong, since women are more expressive about their sexual needs, being in a cosmopolitan city like Bangalore, you need to accept these facts and should not judge them morally. Regards to your potential, since you r very confident, good, use that as a ladder and work hard in a proper way and start earning more. Do not be fixed with a company, if you r doing well, send feelers to other companies and if they pay more jump, this is how you can come up. Also you r parents may not judge you bad, for all or most their kids are their own and remove the negative thoughts. Regarding your appearance, even ugliest people r becoming superstars in movies, so atitude matters, carry and dress in a manner so people adore and respect u. All the best.

You are 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.

First of all I must congratulate you for seeking help. Your willingness to address the problem is the first and very important step. I would suggest you to contact someone and work with them. An addiction expert or a counselor close to you, it you work with someone in your own city that will be best. Seeing some one on a weekly basis will help you maintain motivation and support that you need. It is important for you to remember that you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how your life will change for good once you are addiction free. Write this statement with in a present tense and with positive statements. The more you bring out your emotions and connect with these positive emotions the more strength to change you will gather. If you have any specific question feel free to contact me personally. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,
