Dear lybrate-user, there is no need to worry. If this is the way you go forward, you cannot get into iit next year. I say this because, there is no use worrying or being depressed. There is something wrong with your learning pattern. Find it out and correct it. Don't blame every other thing and get worried. You may get help from a psychologist. Take care.

Hi Abhijeet... There is a definite and a very permanent solution that is homeopathy. You just have to take a detailed consultation in which I will mostly explore your symptoms in depth... After that I expect that in time we will be able to stop all your medicines replaced by homoeopathic and then later homoeopathic too.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Get your vital parameters of the body checked from a nearby doctor and follow up with findings and Get your blood checked for CBC and follow up with reports and if reports are normal then we can call it to be due to anxiety.

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. Take care.

Hi sir I am having social anxiety disorder please suggest some books podcast to get rid of these disease.
Dear lybrate user... Social Anxiety Disorder manifests itself in form of restlessness and tremolousness of body with pounding of heart in social situations. The person is so uncomfortable that he literally avoids social gatherings or meeting other people. In social situations this disorder causes a marked functional impairment to the person. Depending upon the degree of impairment you may be benefited by bringing lifestyle changes with adequate stress management in life. If significant impairment is there you may require medications along with stress management and lifestyle changes like healthy food habits, regular 30 mins exercise and fixed sleep wake schedule. If we see neurobiologically, in anxiety the highest centerrs of our brain responsible fot thinking and cognition are over-rided by the lower centers responsible for emotions. This leads to functional impairment and fear. What I would suggest is to get involved in thinking during such anxiety provoking social situations so as to activate the higher centers to get a better hold of the moment. So you can do say counting of numbers or start talking with close ones or friends there about some thoughtful thing like what you found in newspaper today or before or work related talks. I hope these will help you to hold yourself upright in social situations. But thats not enough as generally a little help of medications is required at the start. Take care

Start day with gratitude. Include physical activity in daily schedule. Read a book daily. Avoid extra planning. Congratulate yourself over small victories also. Devote some time to family also. Control mobile time. Have good sexual life. Stay connected with people and nature around.

Such rudeness, aloofness and aggression is common in children of this age. As family members you will have to handle her smartly so as not to distance her from the family. Appreciate her more often, on things she does well - the problem with us is that we criticise all the time but appreviate sparsely. Because kids this age are conscious of their looks, compliment her whenever she is nice and neatly dressed. Never ever criticise her friends, or try to tell her that her friends are spoiling her- this way you will distance her more from yourself. Take interest in she does. Spend time with her, on more occasions doing what she likes - gradually she will begin doing things you want her to do.

Your Addiction To Smart Phone Reveals Something Shocking About You!

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
Your Addiction To Smart Phone Reveals Something Shocking About You!
Smartphone Addiction is a Sign of Depression

There are some people who just never seem to get off the phone. They would be looking at their phones all the time, messaging, using social networking sites or simply clicking their pictures or playing games. A study suggests that addiction to the smartphone is linked to and serves as a sign of depression.

The study reveals that individuals who have been diagnosed with some form or degree of depression tend to use their phones more. In fact, smartphone addiction is correlated to clinical depression. So, if your teenage son or daughter or someone you know have been using their phones too often, then this might be a red signal towards depression.

Smartphone addiction can be seen as a compulsive behavior and is typically noticed among depressed people. At the same time, it can result in depression as well. People who are prone to developing depression symptoms may also use their phone more often. Their excessive usage and smartphone addiction may actually make them irritable and sad, looking at photos of others, noticing other people’s lives may make them feel that their lives aren’t perfect. This can in turn lead to feelings of extreme sadness, cause depression or even suicidal thoughts.

So, make sure that you keep a tab of how often people use smartphone in your family. If you suspect behavioral changes with smartphone addiction, consider getting a consultation with a psychologist or counsellor.
