This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear , every child is like a butterfly. Each have different colors and different behavior and abilities. We need to admire them according to their admirability. Your child is just 9. At this age, they are more interested in playing. So the curricula is play oriented. If you try to thrust things in the child using other methods, it will bounce back. Please use play techniques to teach her. Appreciate her, love her and she will appreciate it and learn quick. Your child is an angel, understand her. She will never let you down. Take care.

Actually this is a problem of majority of the youth in your age who are in darkness regarding their future.This doesnot mean that everything iss over,.It is the start of a new journey and most of us face such problems in the start of their carrier and the difference is that some come out early from this ssituation and many like you finds it difficult to come out.But the basic principle is to keep on trying and always think about one thing whenever you face a failure that God has planned something better for you and better luck next time.Once you are out of this situation or if I say ,the moment you have a placement in a job,all your worries will be gone.Means in nuthell that by experiencing such moments in your life you always learn something and thiss lays a foundation stone for your bright future.So keep on trying until you succeed and never loose heart because there is no space for Disheartened or laggard people in thiss harsh world.

Dear lybrate-user, children never studies. They always learn from experiences. They learn from what ever they do with interest. When they learn such, they cannot forget too. That is the reason why the curricula of children are always made interactive, with entertainment and play. In home also you should try to make the child learn with the help of kindergarten techniques. Take care.

Lybrate-user, you should not lose heart in not able to clear your ca exams. Failures are always stepping stone to success. You have to either work doubly hard for next attempt or look at alternative career/ degree options in consultation with family or friends as you feel convinced. Life may have its up and downs but take it in stride and work harder.

I tried to quit smoke but my mind divert now I will never do smoke but I do so what I have to for quit smoke please give me some tips but I played Daily volleyball ball then running and 2 hrs gym write now I doing gym bcz my exam es going on so now please give me a your advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is one thing to quit but it is another matter staying quit. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. 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 chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

I came across a article of a news paper by a doctor about cyclothymia and found the same symptoms I am going through....
Cyclothymia as you now know , is a condition where a person has fluctuating highs and lows. If we were to be critical about ourselves , most of us would fall in this category. The issue is not so much about labeling ourselves, as it is to make the best of what we have. When you are 'high' it means you are energetic, alert and most productive. Utilize this phase to finish things that you always wanted to do - plan, execute and feel nice about your accomplishment. 'Lows' means your energy level is low, don't particularly feel like doing anything. Enjoy this state, without guilt, relax and use this period to rejuvenate. No one can perform at the same level everyday - every day is a different day. Study your energy patterns and plan accordingly.

Hi there ~ Thank you for the detailed description of your problems. It certainly is a fact that many students react to stress the way that you are reacting if the work they have on hand is more than what one can handle. Everyone is different and so are you. It seems like you continue to point fingers at the first drink of alcohol that you had to have been the source of your problems. I strongly believe that you are not probably right in saying so about yourself. I can suggest many techniques for you to be able to perform better, however I also believe that medication management is what you need to deal with your problem of poor concentration. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

Hello, Over the past couple of year I have developed high level of anxiety mostly when it comes to my physical appearance and sometimes when I think about my future. 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.

I'm 19 yr old nd I cant concentrate on studies. I always have pain in head. What should I do?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Consult a general physical to rule out any medical cause. If you've already done that then you might want to inculcate the following: - 30 minutes of physical activity - you can also try breathing exercises for a few minutes every day. - create a structured plan for each day. It will help you feel less anxious about your study material. Make sure to not do too much initially.

I am very confused about my career. I have an MBA degree and did job in a bank for one year. Due to health, I left my job and joined my family business but it is not satisfying my life. I really don't know, who am I? When I watch a movie, I wish I would be a director, actor,writer etc. When I see rich people with luxurious life, I wish I would be there. When I see a celebrity I wish people would love me. Only I think kinds of those situations. But when I go to prepare myself to do something which I think to be, my moral and willpower go down. Please help me to set a life living goal.

Do not lose heart. These are quite common symptoms at your age. You are not satisfied with your life. If you can pursue something of your choice then it is fine. If not, best thing would be to gradually start a routined life in which there is exercise, reading and meditation. You will slowly build up your will power and your life will get a direction. Pursue a hobby and try to see where your interest lies. Last but not the least, be positive. That is the key to being happy and excelling in life.

How to concentrate in my work ?and what is the basic or correct time of sleeping?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
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. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Good sleep improves concentration. You should sleep at least 7 hours a day at night. Take care.
