Hello, there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks.

Sir I have the problem of forgetting I mean I don't forget the things or work but I only forget when I prepare for exams and on reaching exam center I forget nearly 40-50 percent. how to cope of with this problem I have exams a head. please some one help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You get into a panic mode I think with approaching exams. There is a lot of fear and very low confidence. To immediately calm down you can do something very effectively: block your lips tightly and breathe to puff up your cheeks with air so that the back pressure will press the vagus nerve at he back of the throat. This nerve connects the heart and the brain directly and will immediately calm you down in a few breaths. Here are some things you can also 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.

Stress and anxiety are reactions to a situation and not a situation in itself. Gastric problems are often related to underlying anxiety which you may not be able to manage adequately by yourself. It's better to take psychiatric help so that root cause can be evaluated.

Masturbation is almost certainly good for your sex life. Masturbating doesn't reflect on your relationship. Masturbation doesn't have the health benefits that sex does. Masturbation is not risk, free. There's no" normal" amount of masturbation. Guys can get hung up on whether they masturbate too much. But it's not how many times you masturbate in a week (or day) that really matters, says logan levkoff, phd, a sexologist and sex educator. It's how it fits into your life. If you masturbate many times a day and have a healthy, satisfying life, good for you. But if you masturbate many times a day and you're missing work or giving up on sex with your partner because of it, consider seeing a sex therapist.

I suffer from mood swings a lot. I feel very depressed and lonely all the time. Like as if I am abandoned by the entire world. All people hurt me a lot even though I am sweet to them. I get hurt by small things, also I have terrible anger. I feel I am not fit for this world. People only remember me when they need me for their selfish needs and then they forget me. It's hampering my studies a lot. I have also seen a psychologist but it didn't help. I would be obliged if by observing my symptoms, you diagnose my mental disorder. Please help.

Your mood swings are definitely of concern and that must be investigated. It may be caused by a serious developmental issue called Rejection. You seem to suffer from rejection from all and sundry to find it difficult to feel one with people. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socialization skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally! If the mood disorder is serious you can meet a doctor and determine the course of action, medically and therapeutically.

Dear lybrate user, please understand certain things first! you are only 21 hence you need not say/think that you are single for a" very long time" 2. Even if you have achieved full sexual growth, this is your age to concentrate more on your studies and career. 3. There has to be some strong reason why you are having sexual feelings towards your mother. May be your father is absent from your life, may be your mother looked at you as her support and crossed her boundaries or she is looking at you for support and loves you a lot and also thinks that you are still a child and is treating you like that. But she may not have any sexual feelings towards you. Please understand that each relation is enjoyable and is healthy only when certain boundaries are maintained. Understand your relation with your mother and maintain your boundaries. You can masturbate to satisfy your sexual needs, but fantasizing sex with your mother will very harmful, emotionally for both of you. Please understand that if you just keep imagining things like this, one day you might do it actually, in the spurt of that moment and then you will carry huge shame, guilt for the rest of your life. Now, it is advisable for you to keep some other women to take care of your mother. You need to stay away from her. Stop sharing the same bed. Spend more time with people of your age and who have similar interests. Try to find a life partner of your age and enjoy life.

Please take care of your health and avoid any kind of alcohol if possible. Maintain a healthy lifestyle and go for a medical check up along with some basic tests like CBC, ESR, blood sugar, TSH, urine routine etc. Eat only healthy food and avoid all types of outside food. Have lots of fluids and water (8-10 glasses of water ). Strike a balance in every thing that you do so that you can enjoy your routine and move towards your goals everyday. If you have any other health problems then you can try Homeopathy which is safe and effective. You can contact me if needed.

Hi, many a times we are fearful of situations which are vague and unhappy with circumstances. Its very important we recognize that it will not remain same forever, moreover it not situation which is good or bad but how we see it and interpret. You need to have an attitude of" jo hoga dekha jayega" you need to be carefree life is not about taking stress but enjoying as it is otherwise whole point of living is missed.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

You seem to be feeling disappointment a lot and taking it to heart. Emotional disturbances have their effect on the physical body as well. I suggest that you please look into it and undertake some counselling sessions to build back your confidence, enthusiasm and self esteem. Yellow color urine and smell could be due to drinking very little water as well. If you are on multivitamins then again urine smells and becomes yellow. I suggest that you look for reasons for your problems and tackle them one by one rather than sinking emotionally. Take a second and third opinion and read up on your condition yourself and educate yourself. Take care.
