Mindfulness method for concentration. This is an easy mindfulness exercise, and one that you can do anytime throughout the day. Take a moment right now to try this. Check your watch and note the time. For the next 60 seconds your task is to focus all your attention on your breathing. It? s just for one minute, but it can seem like an eternity. Leave your eyes open and breathe normally. Be ready to catch your mind from wandering off (because it will) and return your attention to your breath whenever it does so. This mindfulness exercise is far more powerful than most people give it credit for. It takes some people many years of practice before they are able to complete a single minute of alert, clear attention. Keep in mind that this mindfulness exercise is not a contest or a personal challenge. You can? t fail at this exercise, you can only experience it. Use this exercise many times throughout the day to restore your mind to the present moment and to restore your mind to clarity and peace. Over time, you can gradually extend the duration of this exercise into longer and longer periods. This exercise is actually the foundation of a correct mindfulness meditation technique. You had to learn this method with therapist.If you want tom learn. Let me know.

Are you suggesting that your parents are an impediment to this career you have chosen? if so there must be reasons for their disapproval: the dangers of this career, or the lack of job and money-making opportunities etc. These could be valid concerns and you will need to prove them otherwise. Obviously you need some support and the best support I can think of is to get it from your mountaineering club or association and have one of the coaches or guides to come meet with your parents and have a talk. Now about this getting hyper, you know that that is not a solution and behaving rationally is the only way through this. No one will take you seriously, if you let your emotions get the better of you. You could also do career guidance counseling and attempt some tests in aptitude determination and take that also as evidence, if it points in this direction. The counselor will be willing to meet with your parents to help bring them around too. In all this you must approach it with a sensible mind and hold your emotions in check. Nothing should be obtained by blackmail: neither by your parents nor by you.

I have social anxiety and mild depression. It's interfering with my work way too much. I can't even speak properly if someone asked me anything in front of more than one people I don't know about. It's killing me and I am starting to think it's useless to live like this.

All problems can be resolved if you wanted to. Anxiety and depression tend to go together. 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 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.

Dear, definitely your problem can be solved. No negative thinking and obsession please. Obsessive thinking and negative attitudes are mental disorders. 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.

Doctor we were in relationship. I had a seminar in my school and the boy who was giving it was from bits pillani so he gave his contact to students and I concerned him to get information about which stream to choose in 11th so he guided me. After 2-3 months he asked do you write blogs or something came in your mind and you started writing about it I said for now i'm not interested so he said ok. Again after 2-3 months I asked me why you dp such sad pics on your whatsapp and I told the story behind it so he helped me. I asked about his life and we both started talking. We almost talk all day long till 2 am at night. So I said you must be feeling sleepy so he answered sometimes people replace sleep'i was literally blushing when I heard this but since I was too young for him I never thought that way. So I said ok good night i'm sleeping and we after few days of talking he proposed me and he said we have 7-8 years of gap so it's okay for me since there are people who get married even after such long age gapes. So I said ok. He made me feel so special and always tries to make me happy. I always fight with him and he always try to manage my anger by saying sorry even if it is my fault so I felt so special but after sometime he got ego for always bowing in front of me even if the fault is mine. I noticed change in his attitude. Yes I forgot I mention earlier when I said I want breakup just to make him mad and to test if the things are going right so after hearing he ate 8-9 sleeping pills and I have not received any text message or call from him I was worried where he is. I looked at his place. After 2 days he messages i'm in hospital since I ate 8-9 pills. I felt sorry and told him I was just checking and please do not repeat such stuffs in future. So ya he ignored me and started I always cry in front of him but he started torturing me. He deleted my fb wa and insta. He depressed me. He always say he will leave me whenever I fight with him. I have lost my value selfrespect. He once said he will talk with me after settling his business. How can someone live with whom they love? Once he was so mad at me and now he always take my for granted. He always talk about living separate and not to go together even if the issue was not worth fighting. I just want to get out of this situation.

You are way too young to fall into such emotions, Don't be depressed and try to move from everything. Life is all about moving from everything. Life will bring new chances and better life, only when you leave whatever is upsetting you. The problem you are having is just a fraction of life. you will come across many things in life. At this point of time it is very natural to feel so, after a certain point of time you will realize how important is to build your career. Take care!

Body Dysmorphic Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of psychiatric disorder. It is when you cannot think about one or more defects or flaws in your appearance. These flaws are usually very minor and sometimes even unnoticeable.  This is actually a much more serious disorder than many other people may think. This is because people with body dysmorphic disease may avoid many situations and also suffer from severe anxiety or shame. Here is everything you need to know about body dysmorphic disease.

Causes
Just like other psychiatric disorders, there is no known cause of body dysmorphic disease. However, there are a lot of factors, which increases your risk of developing it which include:

1. Brain disorders: Many people with abnormal brain chemistry disorders suffer from body dysmorphic disease. 
2. Genes: People whose blood relatives have this disease or have obsessive compulsive disorder are more likely to develop this disorder as well. 
3. Environment: Cultural and social influences are a major cause of body dysmorphic disorder as well.

Symptoms
There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include: 

1. Having a preoccupation with a flaw in the body, which is very minor or perhaps even unnoticeable.
2. Beliefs that people are mocking you in relation to your flaw.
3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

Treatments
There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.
1.   Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is when a therapist tries to stop you from thinking about the flaw that you have been focusing on way too much. 
2.   SSRI: SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They are given in cases, where body dysmorphic disorder is caused by problems related to the brain chemical serotonin. 
3.   Hospitalization: This is a severe measure, but may need to be taken if you are in danger of harming somebody or you cannot perform daily activities.

I Have habit of chewing tobacco. I wish to stop it. But I find it impossible on my own. What is the scientific reason for our body, because of which it is very difficult to stop tobacco.

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 lybrate user. I can understand. Nicotine causes pleasant feelings and distracts the user from unpleasant feelings. This makes the tobacco user want to use more. Nicotine also acts as a kind of depressant by interfering with the flow of information between nerve cells. As the nervous system adapts to nicotine, tobacco users tend to increase the amount of tobacco they use. This raises the amount of nicotine in their blood, and more tobacco is needed to get the same effect. This is called tolerance. Over time, the tobacco user reaches a certain nicotine level and then will need to keep up the usage to keep the level of nicotine within a comfortable range. So quitting tobacco becomes a tough task. Will power only can help you along with deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Hello, You get relief after smoking that is the temporary effect of tobacco on your body which indirectly acts as an analgesic and the pain subsides for some hours. As per symptoms you will need an otoscopic examination of the ear which is possible only if you visit an ENT specialist. Rest I can advise you is try to quit smoking because it is harmful for your lungs and body and it will also subside body signals such as pain and other symptoms which are seen in some diseases. For detailed history taking and treatment you can take my online consultation here: www.Lybrate.com/dr-prashantpawar Thank you.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I am 28 years old. Right now I am preparing for civil service. I had developed Sexual obsessions for my aunt. These obsessions are involuntary, repetitive, and unwelcome. Attempts to suppress or neutralize do not work for me and in fact make the obsessions more severe, as trying to make sense of obsessions only gives them more attention and "fuel" The reason behind this obsessions is that when I was doing college I had stayed with uncle and aunt .They called me to stay in their house by themselves. They just called me for some personal motive as soon as their motive was over they trashed me out of their house. My aunt was mastermind behind all this stuff. She defames me. She accused me for unwanted petty things. I cannot forget all these personal trauma till now .i had developed personal hatred for her. I had started compulsive masturbation after that. I just saw her as sex object after that. Whenever I masturbate in my conscious I was degrading her. Now she becomes Sexual obsessions for me. I cannot get rids of her thoughts. Whenever I saw her thoughts again pouring on my mind. I cannot fully neglect her. I had to wish her HALFHEARTEDLY whenever I met her. I just want to get rid of these thoughts. Although in my whole life I cannot forgive her .please tell me solutions.

There is an emotional problem to all of this. You are venting out your anger sexually and imagining that by doing so you are hurting her. Unfortunately, this whole thing is backfiring and this has led to an obsession. Either you learn to forgive your aunt and uncle or you will need to go and meet with a counselor but focus on the anger as an emotion that needs expression. With that done, your obsession will gradually fade away. You could also relieve yourself of this anger by some vigorous workouts but the anger will prevail minus the energy of the emotion. You should also make an attempt to focus on other immediate matters like work and socialize with both sexes and develop an affinity towards members of the opposite sex suitable to your age. This will, in time, help you concentrate on things that really matter to your personal life. You are right, any attempt to get her out of your mind will, by nature, continue to adamantly stay even more strongly in your own mind and trouble you more.

Sir, Is drinking beer really harmful for health. I want to knw only about the beer no other alcoholic drinks. I only drink beer and no other drinks. So if there is any bad outcomes then plz tell me what are those and how bad it can be? I want to know the consequences.

MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Beer has alcohol content. Comparing with hard drinks like whiskey or brandy. One regular beer or half a strong beer is equal to 30 ml (one small drink) of whiskey or brandy. So consuming beer will cause same damage as consuming other alcoholic drinks. Some common harmful effects of consuming beer are liver problem, stomach ulcer, pancreatitis, gallstones and nerve problem.

Schizophrenia was diagnosed a year ago, patient is under treatment of Oleanz (01 tab./ day ), condition is progressive with lot of improvement. Although we are regular in medicine, but we have heard that any gap of even one day in medication may cause a "relapse" is that true? We are under stress after hearing this, kindly guide.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. This is a commonly asked question and a very valid concern. Medicines for schizophrenia, to be effective, need to be taken daily. Frequent missing of doses will lead to a sub-optimal outcome. After adequate control, if the medicines are stopped for sometime, generally the symptoms do not emerge immediately and generally there is a lag period of few weeks to several months. But if symptoms are inadequately controlled, symptoms can re-emerge much earlier on stoppage of medicines, sometimes even in a few days. Coming to your specific question: Although advised to not miss even a single dose, it is only human that many patients occasionally miss a dose. However, if the treatment is mostly regular, and symptoms are mostly controlled, an occasional missing of dose should be of no consequence, and is a common scenario in clinical practice. So don't worry too much about it, try not to miss a dose, but if you do miss, it is ok, don't get too worried, be careful the next time. Take care!
