First of all, buy a pregnancy kit from medical store, it is cheap, accurate and easy to use. If pregnancy is ruled out, meet your gynecologists to get some tests done. Delayed periods can also be due to stress!

You must be under a lot of stress. Are you aware of this? the dreams indicate the nature of the pressure i. e. They may be fear related. What are you afraid of to cause this much stress and how long have you been suffering from this condition? you are doing what is called discounting? a loss of awareness due to undue pressure. I suggest you sleep as much as possible on your left ear at night. Meet with a counselor and take that person? s guidance to go to the root cause and deal with it, effectively. You may also attend a personality development course, do regular exercise, meditate, sleep well, eat well, and deal with your emotions through therapy. If you are cooperative, everything should come back to normal pretty soon.

This is a set up for depression. You must study right through the year and and you will be successful. Also you may have the exam panic that makes it difficult to study. Meet a counselor and get some help in that region. Most learning by now is audio-visual. The hearing and remembering, and the seeing and remembering are going to be very important. Of this the visual has a clear advantage over the audio mode of learning. However, it is the combination, with the visual being the primary mode of learning, that will give you the best results. So concentration in these two modes and their development will give your children a distinct advantage over the others. The eye exercise is really very simple: have the child hold a ball-point pen and move it in all directions, up and done, and near and far, but never out of sight and without any movement of the head; the kid should focus visually on the point of the pen which will normally reflect a point of light even if the source of light is behind the pen. The movement must be slow and smooth. The person watching the kid must time him in the following format: first, with both eyes the child will focus on the point for one minute, then the person monitoring the test will inform the kid, ‘change’, then the kid should now block any one eye without pressing the eyeball. After one minute of this, ‘change’ will be told once again and the kid will have to block the other eye and focus on the point with the open eye. ‘Change’ will be said once more and the kid can open both eyes and watch the point of light for one more minute. The exercise stops at the end of four minutes. During the exercise no one should talk to the kid and the kid should not talk to anyone else, either. The ear exercise involves placing the kid seated in the central most part of the house, and he needs to be able to see a clock with a secondhand to it. Only one other person can do this exercise with him. When the kid is ready he will say, ‘start’ and the exercise begins. The one person doing the exercise with him will walk around the kid while initiating a dialogue with the kid. He will walk to all four extremities of the house while still maintaining a dialogue with the kid. When one minute is over the kid will block one ear still continuing the exercise. After one minute of this the kid will block the other ear and open the previous ear, while still continuing the conversation. After one minute of this the kid will open both ears and continue the dialogue. At the end of four minutes, the kid will announce, ‘stop’. The exercise is done but the kid should now recall verbatim, the entire conversation. This recall is assessed roughly on the following criteria: 80% marks for the recall of content, 10% for the same order it was spoken, and 10% for the same language that was used. No interpretation is allowed. So you may give a complete score of 62%, for example, without breaking down the actual percentages obtained under each criterion. There should be no argument as to why these marks were given, and there should be no time given for ‘trying’ to recall. Some rules to follow when doing the exercise: keep it simple, talk slowly, and the topic must be thematic. Anyone of the two participants may start a topic. Both these exercises must be done at least four times a day, with a minimum gap of 30 minutes between each set of ear and eye exercise. This must be done every day without missing any for 10 weeks. If even one day is missed, you have to start the whole exercise all over again for 10 weeks. The scores must be recorded to see progress. If there is any emergency, it can be done at least twice of that day but the next day the four times a day must be resumed. The kid should not be helped to remember with any clues or hints. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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 junk food.

These are not good signs at all. You need to meet with a counselor and a doctor immediately. Right now it may seem that you have control over your impulses but pretty soon if this goes untreated, you may lose that control. You are developing quite serious paranoid thoughts and in time they can feed into impulses. This is a condition coming from some deep-rooted fear. This fear is now becoming abnormal. YOu need to do regular exercise, have a tight schedule of activities everyday. Meet people and socialize under the guidance of a counselor. Please do not neglect this condition any more.

Hello- here are 10 easy steps you can take to reduce your risk of computer eye strain and other common symptoms of computer vision syndrome (cvs): get a comprehensive eye exam. 1. Use proper lighting. 2. Minimize glare. 3. Upgrade your display. 4. Adjust your computer display settings. 5. Blink more often. 6. Exercise your eyes. 8. Take frequent breaks. 9. Modify your workstation. If you need to look back and forth between a printed page and your computer screen, this can cause eye strain. Place written pages on a copy stand adjacent to the monitor. Light the copy stand properly. You may want to use a desk lamp, but make sure it doesn't shine into your eyes or onto your computer screen. Improper posture during computer work also contributes to computer vision syndrome. Adjust your workstation and chair to the correct height. Purchase ergonomic furniture to enable you to position your computer screen 20 to 24 inches from your eyes. The center of your screen should be about 10 to 15 degrees below your eyes for comfortable positioning of your head and neck. 10. Consider computer eyewear.

Dear Lybrateuser, -To improve your condition do stop smoking & drinking as it raises BP & also the heart rate -do light exercises to start with as your system may not be able to adapt to the sudden strenuous exercises in the gym & may cause damage, start with a walk only on the treadmill, do warm up before the actual exercise & also do cooling down for 5-10 min -if still no improvement then get your BP checked up at rest as well as during exercise as if you have high bp then vigourous execise will put more strain on the heart & complete system which is damaging for it.

To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault with your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. However, surprisingly, what you perceive is more important than the reality itself. Let me explain: when they ask you to keep quiet, they are essentially saying just adjust. This is not a bad thing but in the repeated demand of this, you will feel of lesser importance. This comparative thing is a form of rejection, even in your parents’ innocence in asking for the adaptation. This is really a silly reason but quite demonstrative. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like she is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also, find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a male child and were disappointed that you were a girl. How long were you breastfed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection if there is any truth. So it is not surprising that so many of your relationships are ending in either you rejecting them or they rejecting you! You need to meet with a counselor and work all this out. At your age this claim of depression is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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 callisthenic 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.

You have indeed gone through hell already by 23 years. I do not envy your position nor the situation you are in vis-à-vis your extended family not willing to see your problems and not being of support. But you must remember that this is your life. When you think of ending it, it means only one thing that you are treating yourself like the other people: that is you are hurting yourself and wanting to end your life!!! So in essence you are living or not living your life but what other people expect of you, which is to ruin it. You are in charge of your life and what you make of it. You are not accountable to anybody but to god and yourself. Please listen to me: go meet a counselor and talk these matters over. Do not do anything foolish about your life but make a good plan to both work and study. Start in a small way and step by step grow up in life and the society you live in. Do not bother what other people say unless it is true. It is possible to regain all your family lost glory and come back to life with a vengeance. See if you can connect with a relative who has some sympathy or better still if they have empathy towards your cause and together with that support act on your plans. You have to convince them of your determination and genuineness. Do not let ego or pride come in the way of your reaching out to others. Also meet with your doctor because one of the side-effects of your medicine is to have suicidal tendencies. I love that you want others to learn but not through your death. In fact, they will see that it is because of these problems that you took control of your life and made it: that sure will be a good example and role model for others to learn from you. Let me proud of you too, okay? I have helped a person aged 35 years without education, suffering from TB and drug addiction and having a very serious criminal past come out of his mess: he got married to a doctor!, and currently he is the director of an institute!!! I remember that his first investment was something he was very passionate about: a walkman set!!!

My memory power is getting down day by day. I don't know what is happening. Most of the time my mood swings, I am depressed and stressed. I am getting over excited or being calm. I am not able to maintain balance between them. Can you say me the better ways to improve concentration and memory.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu may have depressive illness and medication is needed. Generally CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

everyone likes sunny leone. but too much thinking about her its not good for mental health. they are celebrities how it is possible to maintain affectionate relations with them.you are spending too much time on thinking to her. it is better to come out of this stage. it is not negative or bad thought. it is good thought. but too much about her it is not good. it is not related to any psychological disorder. you are not become psychy. fascism is a kind of psychological perversion. my suggestion better to remove her pictures and videos on your computer. just time observe her. but dont give too much priority on her. it is common at this age. but you should control yourself. better to concentrate on your career aspects. better to plan on your study aspects. slowly reach your study plan. dont sit alone. dont think alone. better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. be sociable all the time. be happy.ok all the best.

Homeopathy and Depression

Most people have felt depressed in their lives some time or the other. Depression can be a natural reaction to failure, injured self-esteem or loss but when the severity of the condition increases it is diagnosed as 'clinical' or 'major'. Subtle signs of depression usually go unnoticed because it is difficult to determine whether it is a phase or a chronic condition. It is important to recognize the symptoms of depression and get help at the earliest.

Some major symptoms are consistent sadness, feeling hopeless, thoughts of suicide, uninterested in life, low on energy, a persistent physical trauma that does not respond to medications.

Homeopathic Treatment

There are efficient homeopathic medicines that can work to reduce the illness, especially if treated in the early stages. Homeopathy is a reliable path to follow because it does not have any side effects, unlike antidepressants that tend to numb people. Here is a comprehensive list of homeopathic medicines which most doctors are likely to recommend for treating depression.

  • Arsenicum album - This medicine is prescribed to control the symptoms like diarrhea, gastric problems, indigestion which patients often suffer from as a result of intense anxiety. Patients, appropriate for this medicine tend to be fastidious and restless. It is made of white arsenic and should be taken in prescribed potency because an overdose can cause gastroenteritis.
  • Natrum muriaticum - This homeopathic treatment is useful for mild depression or for people suffering extreme bereavement due to loss or a sudden shock.
  • Sepia - This medicine is beneficial to women suffering from postpartum depression (sadness or emotional confliction after giving birth) and menopause. Feeling of solitude and hopelessness with no energy to continue with life are some common symptoms that can be reduced with Sepia.

I am studying all day and night exam preparation. But in the exam my performance is average. I have forgotten 50% I have read. My concentration power decreasing rapidly. How can I improve my concentration power?

Along with concentration, due to stress you might have developed exam anxiety. Both of this could be worked upon simultaneously. Meditation and relaxation exercise has tremendous effect on reducing your anxiety. Also try this before exam. You could take just few nice and dip breath to activate your relaxation. This will happen once you practice your meditation on a daily basis. You may even take few breaths when you are trying to recall the information you have studied. Try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Sir! I don't feel interest in study. I prepare for civil services examination. I have been facing failure for 5 years consecutively. That's why I have lost my confidence. I don't want to study. Is this symptom of depression?

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Yes. You have loss of motivation because of repeated failures. You do also have despair. I.e. You have lost hope for success in your subconscious mind. Both lack of motivation & presence of despair have caused loss of interest in studies which further deteriorated your performance on day today basis resulting into a feeling of inability to clear exam even this time eroding your confidence. All these together have resulted into a feeling or state of hopelessness & helplessness which if lasted for longer time results into neurotic or endogenous depression due to permanent changes in receptors of neurotransmitters in brain. Take psychological counseling and psychotherapy for motivation enhancement and removing hopelessness with or without medication.

Hello dear, the simplest solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. Boy/girl relationship is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you that you are depressed, do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.
