Hi lybrate-user, You need to control your mind and not let your thoughts disturb you. Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, non judging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

Why did you ask girl for sex in public. Masturbation is perfectly fine. Masturbation is a healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy, rather it s your mind. In your age masturbating 2-3 times a day is also acceptable, but do not ignore your other duties and get pre occupied in this. Sex will happen naturally, when you find a partner. Stop smoking, and do not over indulge in alcohol. If you feel you r hyper sexual, get treated from a psychiatrist. There r medications to reduce it.

I am 27 year old now. I don' t hava a proper job nor good friends. I always feel lonely and frustrated in my life and it' s effecting very much in my small family. I' m controlling all my negativity things of my life. Please suggest me to live a normal life.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Controlling the negativity is not the solution: go and face the world. Find a better job, make new friends, and socialize a lot. These things will get you out of your state, of what seems like, a depression. You need to lead an active life anyway and strengthen yourself to face the difficulties that life shoves on you, regularly. Negativity is there all the time for all the people. You have not been specially chosen to be troubled by it. If others can cope, you can too. Don? T believe in the negative: be positive. In fact I suggest the following to you always: be respectful, be responsible, and be functional.

You have to take him to a psychiatrist and in tandem have him work with a counselor. He sounds like he could be into a deep depression and needs immediate attention so that his condition does not deteriorate. In the meantime, he can use some of these recommendations: 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.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Stress related disorders and related dissociation is normal and such symptoms could stay for some months, slowly recovering. One counselling is never enough. Repeated counselling sessions and psychotherapy can be of immense help. Take care.

It is totally normal. Vaginal discharge is normal. It's consistency and amount changes throughout the month and with age. Another factor is sexual arousal. There is no need to worry unless there is a foul smell, greenish-yellowish discharge, itching or pain.

Sugar level fluctuates at all times of the day, it is related to time of the day, food you take, exercise pattern and many other factors. As far as you are within normal limits, it is ok.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Take some time out and figure out what your goals are and how you can get there. Note your goals point by point, also spend some time to figure out how you will achieve them. Share these with your close friends or others you are close to. Take their suggestions. When you are free pursue a hobby or part time interest that will keep you occupied. Enjoy your life and all the opportunities that come your way. Wishing you all the best! with regards,

First try counselling which is a non medical way of overcoming anxiety. You will learn to respond differently to stressful social situations and discover helpful ways to remain in control of yourself. Medications have their side effects and only takes care of the chemical imbalance. It will not teach you coping mechanisms.

How much exercise do people over age 50 really need? How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
People over 50 can do considerable exercise and workouts, if they are not suffering from any ailments. In that case they will need to check with their physician to see what is permissible. Even if they are not allowed vigorous exercise, daily brisk walking for at least half an hour is excellent. There is an exercise called High Intensity Interval Exercise, which is for a 20 minute duration only and is excellent for various reasons. One can also follow the XBX Plan which is followed by the Royal Canadian Air force and it is excellent too. You can check for both of these on Google. A man can consume two drinks a day, if he is fit. Yes, as one ages the tolerance will decrease and he will need less to create a buzz.

Consult a dermatologist to find out the cause of itching. Your current treatment is helping to reduce the symptoms, but not curing the underlying cause. Treat the cause and you will experience relief.

My sis is 11 years. She has a problem of retaining and learning in studies. What she learns didn't write in exams . What should we do

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Hello nice to see your concern for your sisters welfare. She has dyslexia probably. Get her EEG and its report. Please see if she is learning and motivated to pass in school from her teachers. Figureout a protocol for her problem, Dyslexia impacts both reading and writing, teachers need to be prepared with specific strategies to help students improve writing skills. The following are 20 tips for teachers when working on writing assignments with students with dyslexia: Use motivational techniques. Because writing is hard work for students with dyslexia, set up a reward program for taking steps and improving writing. For example, you can award students with a homework pass for other work if the writing assignment was completed and handed in on time. About Dyslexia Allow a student to use a tape recorder, at least during the planning and research sections of an assignment. Once he has the writing assignment planned out, he may be more motivated and ready to finish up by writing his thoughts on paper. Be sure the topic is emotionally engaging. Students who have a difficult time writing will be more motivated to complete an assignment if the topic is interesting. Research is more focused if he already has an interest in the topic and wants to learn. Ignore grammar, spelling, sentence structure and punctuation in the first draft of an assignment. Teaching these skills independent of writing is more effective. Work with your student individually to make corrections before he completes the final draft. When writing a fictitious story about a character, have the student look through magazines and choose a picture of a person to be used as the main character. Having a visual representation helps him to focus on the story rather than trying to come up with a description of the character. Observe the student and their frustration level. If a student is tired or ready to shut down, the writing project will go downhill. Have them complete another portion of the project, such as looking at pictures to help with descriptions or finding music that he can incorporate into the story. Allow students to illustrate their assignments or prepare a presentation based on their skills. Students with dyslexia have strong skills outside of writing and having them incorporate other strengths helps them to feel proud of their work. Pair students for some assignments. The student with dyslexia might be great at orally explaining his story concept or describing people or places but have a hard time putting his thoughts on paper. Another student may be great at translating situations and events on paper. Having students work together on some projects can help both develop weak skills. Provide students with a writing prompt or a planning guide to help them organize their thoughts and develop a logical sequence for their writing. Use multi-sensory approaches to writing. For example, start students writing descriptive paragraphs about an object in the classroom. Let them hold it, touch it, see it while they are writing. Have students type their assignment on the computer, using spell and grammar checkers before handing in a final draft. Remind students that these tools will not find every error and they will still need to proof-read and edit assignments. Use misspelled words to add to your student's personal word bank when editing writing assignments. He can refer to words he commonly misspells when making corrections to his paper. When grading, give students with dyslexia credit for their effort as well as the actual work. If grading spontaneous writing assignments, don't take off for spelling or grammar. For final projects provide a grading rubric to show students explicitly what is expected. When correcting a child's written work, don't use a red pen. It is very discouraging to get a paper back with red marks all over, especially because your student probably worked harder than many of the other students. Don't ask a student to rewrite a paper because of neatness unless you plan on displaying the work. If so, work with the student on having his work typed. Rewriting, especially for neatness, can take a student with dyslexia and dysgraphia much longer than it takes other students. Having to rewrite something that took great effort to complete is disheartening. Discuss the writing project with the student before beginning. Students with dyslexia sometimes have trouble connecting information previously learned with the current situation. Discussion helps students think about what they already know and use this as background information for the project. Show students how to brainstorm ideas. Use a general topic and have your student list all the ideas he has on the topic, whether he feels they are relevant or not. You can do this as a group activity, have students pair up with one another or work with the student individually. Have students talk aloud as they write or read their first draft out loud before completing the revised draft. The student can also ask another student, parent or teacher to read it out loud. Because students with dyslexia have strong verbal and oral abilities, this lets them hear how it sounds and make corrections. Have students practice writing skills through fun, interactive ways, such as sending a friend an email, writing a letter to a pen-pal or writing about topics they choose. Give students positive feedback whenever possible. Students with dyslexia often don't see their errors but they may also not know what they did right. Point out their successes frequently.

Lybrate-user, I guess you are already answering your question. Definitely, yoga, exercise, good eating habit and sleeping hygiene, having a support network, family connections are the pillars of an healthy lifestyle. Keep this up and if this is not enough, visit a psychotherapist/psychologist. All the best, mz.
