I have lot of Determination Problem, I can't do anything neither study nor exercise how should I increase my determination?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

First you need to make a good decision. This is a very important skill to develop early in life as you will be under a lot of pressure to make decisions all through your life. To make good decisions you must first get adequate information about the subject in question. You must also reduce your stress around emotions and stabilise yourself before venturing to make decisions. There is a prioritizing model developed by Dr, Steven Covey and that is very helpful in determining certain markers to aid in deciphering on the basis of urgency and importance. It can be accessed from his book, 'The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People' Once a decision is made and it is good, yoru determination will be pushed by the motivation that will naturally ensue. At your age there may be hormonal influences also that can confuse you. In that case, you can seek the help of a wise person to help you make these important decisions.

this is something like depersonalisation. Usually if it occurs just once in a while its okay. But if this feeling is pervasive and has been present for a long time along with some other symptoms, its better you consult a psychiatrist with all possible complaints and details.

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. Take care.

You appear to suffer from degenerative {premature aging} damage to your spine, as in your knees and peripheral neuropathy - need investigations to establish diagnosis- these problems are chronic and progressive. Conventional medicine does not usually offer any definitive arrest or reversal of such ailments. However, for good results I recommend holistic medicine therapy to you.

Depending on how long you have been drinking there could be other factors that need to be taken into consideration. As long as you need your drink, there could be an addiction. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

I am 22 yrs old female. I had a love who was already married when I was 16 yrs old. The man even loved me & shared the same kind of emotion with me one night, but then he went out of it. I still love him & recently contacted him to inform about my success. I am once again shattered in those old feelings. What should I do?

Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. They will need the family? s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else? s support you can get and act on it fast.

I am trying very hard to deal with it but it just seems impossible to come out of of. Death seems to be the only way to freedom from this struggle. But problem is, I am not a weak person and though I really want to anyhow just free myself from this, suicide is not my way.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Definitely yes. Suicide is not your way. You have enough experience fighting negative situations in your life. All those situations gave you a lot of positive lessons which are your greatest assets. Be proud of them. As you had see many negatives, the bright part is near. Don't surrender. Positives are round the corner. Be patient. Take care.

Your height is good enough and cannot be increased at all at this age. You can however do a lot of tricks with the clothing designs and patterns to appear taller than you are. You will need to exercise and do some gym workouts to build muscle. Increase your intake of proteins and mixed carbohydrates. I do recommend that you become fat without muscle gain, though. If you manage to calm down you could reduce yoru basic metabolic rate and that way gain some weight.

Your masturbation ahs nothing to do with weight gain or diabetes. The headache you have is probably because of guilt around the masturbation, and for 14 years is stretching it too long. You should have reached out a lot earlier and been free from so much of torture from the guilt. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age, you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also, you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

I want to know why some people are born brave while some are born fearful, Why this happens or it is a conditioning process. I am coward and I want to be very brave means bravest of all but I found it impossible to be brave. So can I become brave if I am coward So I read books on mind and it said it depends on structure of mind So how does structure of mind forms and under whose control it is I get scared easily from childhood while my other friend is brave from birth itself. Is it genetic or conditioning or any other process. How come cowards and bravest people are formed Indirectly how come our nature forms and can it be changed (I am coward or fearful nature person but I want to be brave like discovery people but I fail to become it and I get sad Can I change my nature I.

Hi there ~ I appreciate your question. The answer to your first question as to why some are brave and why some aren't is due to the fact that they are raised differently and they have different life experiences that make their brains react the way they do when faced with a certain situation. I believe that it is therefore a conditioning process. Like I have mentioned before, your friends were not brave by birth itself, and so you can also be brave similar to them but not same as them. Your bravery may be in different aspects compared to them. However you are brave too and you should hone the kind of bravery that comes naturally to you. Although genetics (nature) plays a part in anxiety, upbringing and life experiences (nurture) also play a large role in anxiety formation. I recommend that you visit with a psychologist to get any other questions answered that you are not able to express in the written format in this forum. However I also strongly suggest that you visit with a neuropsychiatrist to get yourself evaluated for any generalized anxiety disorder and thus get help for the same by the use of appropriate medications. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

6 Simple Ways to Bust Anxiety

DNB (PSYCHIATRY), DPM, MBBS,
Psychiatrist, Gurgaon
6 Simple Ways to Bust Anxiety

Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The best way to deal with it to accept that it is only a temporary phase which everyone faces. If you keep worrying and try to fight it, you will become even more anxious and your health will become even worse.

It is therefore important that you acknowledge it, first of all and try to cope with it. Controlling anxiety isn't a gigantic task. You can feel at ease with by doing these simple things:

  1. Self-soothing techniques: There are many physiological things for you to do as well which will allow you to relieve anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a very good way to achieve this. Sometimes reassuring yourself is more valuable than you think. Practice saying comforting things to yourself and the stress and anxiety will automatically reduce. Muscle relaxation is yet another method which will allow you to decrease your anxiety.
  2. Deep breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth.
  3. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  4. Get adequate sleep: Everyone feels bad when they do not sleep enough. However, did you know that lack of sleep is a major cause of anxiety. The more you sleep, the less anxious you will feel.
  5. Exercise regularly: You probably know that exercise is very important for maintaining good health. However, what you probably do not know is that exercise is perhaps more effective than even medication in relieving your anxiety. Therefore, it is imperative for you to get moving.
  6. Monitor your diet: Your diet is crucial in reducing your anxiety as caffeine and alcohol are two of the leading causes of anxiety in your body. However, abruptly stopping your intake of caffeine and alcohol also leads to withdrawal symptoms. Therefore balancing out intake of alcohol and caffeine is crucial.

Dear user, welcome to lybrate-user. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

I'm not a dermatologist , what generally I understand about skin problems and other physical problems is , that many of the skin problems are due to stress. Take good care of your diet. Have lots of water, fresh fruits and salads. Avoid applying any makeup or other chemical ointments , instead apply fresh Aloe Vera pulp (if you are not allergic) . You could also try malai . This may help . As for your dandruff - control it trough natural means , it should help.

I have lack of memory. How do I gain?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection.
