I have been constantly thinking negative for last 4 to 5 years or say from very young age. I don't know how I formed this habit, I tried to change, read lot of self help books, watched seminars, but nothing changed so much, I want to know the source of my negative thinking because even a 7 to 8 years old kids are very optimistic than me, I was not at all positive during my childhood. I used to get irritate and I was a coward in my childhood and even now I am the same, I want to know whether genes have any effect on thinking How come some people are so optimistic while some like me are pessimistic, Is it a gift of nature. Because kids don't know what thinking is, I want to know whether these thinking ability is genetic or environment My brother and I share same environment but still I am very much negative.

Today, we are discovering a lot of the influence of genes. So, in relation to your question, the genes do have a lot to do with your negativity. Fortunately, it is the environment that can be used to benefit you favorably, even with the influence of the genes. The genetic inheritance is only a predisposition to a condition: it is the exposure we place ourselves into that can either stimulate or suppress the predisposition. Your problem, in seeking solutions in books and seminars, will not necessarily provide the help you need: it is to do with and in and around people that you can work out the solution. For example, being with positive people only will gradually influence you to become optimistic in life. Since you mention this to be a trait from childhood there may be, apart from the genetic influences, some traumatic influences from prenatal days and later, to have a great impact. The character of your family and parents too will have a bearing. This attitude in life will be the cause of your problems and not its effect. You could attend some counseling and do some personal work in any or all of these areas and resolve this, permanently. There is a solution to all problems and your search must be in real earnest, and above all your cooperation is vital to the success of your efforts. Gradually, you will become positive and start enjoying life with all its challenges and live a normal life. If you start a regimen of vigorous exercise (even in a gym), eat well, sleep well, and handle your emotions well, you will feel and act a lot better. Also be healthy and fit in five areas: physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual, to be a complete personality. You will become confident, develop a good self-image, and be optimistic. The reason you are different from your brother is constitutional in nature (and other factors too), even if you had had the same environment.

I retired from Indian Air Force on 31 St Dec 2009. I feel like to be at home only. I do not feel happy to go out of my home. I go out only when it very necessary such as visit to hospital etc. I always search a company when I go out. I get anoide and irritated on very small small things such as while taking bath when soap fall down etc etc. I feel and it seems that I am very selfish and self-centered person. Please advice.

General Physician,
This is age related feeling and retirement blues. When retired you have lost the hectic old life and feel more lonely. You find time to read good books, listen to music, or make it habit to go to local club if any or a library where you may met persons of our liking and age. Do meditaion and yoga.

At your age, this is an indication that there may be more than less-sleep as a factor. I suggest you meet with a counselor and examine your childhood developmental milestones to see if there was any problem there. Feelings without reason suggest that there is a deep-rooted issue. It is most likely fear related. If you deal with it now, the prognosis will be good.

Hello Doctor. I am seeking help. I feel I am depressed and often I get anger attacks and I feel helpless also because of my past life experience. I am 31 years old now.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are experiencing anger-related depression. Very simply put, you have not been expressing anger perhaps for a long time and that has piled up and has turned inwards to deplete your natural energy, leading to the depression. You need to look back and identify where and why it started, and then deal with it appropriately. This is an important exercise that may have to be done several times until the emotion is totally purged off of its energy. Any unprovoked and unexplained emotions always tend to have its roots way back into the past. It is possible that you have been discouraged to express anger in particular and you have learned to suppress it instead. But the system cannot hold unexpressed emotions for too long. In fact it becomes toxic to your system. For anger, vigorous exercise will deplete the energy but you must know the reasons too. Just talking, even writing about it, shouting it out, etc. Will give it catharsis. Everyday anger must also be expressed appropriately and adequately. Talk to a close friend or confidant or counselor, regularly about your feelings and things should shape up alright.

She never listens to what I want. All my friends parents are amazing and always tend to their needs .My mom doesn't even let me look the way I want to. Is there any way that I can bring a change in her? She is a very stubborn woman.

Its very common now a days with rapid changing society the gap is increasing day by day between parents and children and this gap may be in any form like for eating ,for dress, for group of friends etc. Neither you are wrong nor she is .may be there is some fear in her mind for something but one thing which you also cannot deny that she is your real well wisher. On your part its obvious we have to make ourself as the society and people around us .what you can do is to take help of any professional so that your point of view should also convey to your mother and her fear or any type of problem which she is not able to tell you she can clarify with that person.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Most often children just need a little more incentive to get them talking 1. Eat something your child loves in their presence with out offering them any. When your child indicates that they would like some, model a more advanced way for them to make the request, whether it is using a sign, a word or a simple phrase. For example, if your child points and grunts to the candy, model the sign for candy then wait and see if your child will imitate the sign candy. If your child simply keeps pointing and grunting take his/her hand and help him make the sign for candy then reward him/her with the candy. 2. Play with something your child loves but don’t offer to share. For instance if your child loves playing with playdough and wants to participate in the fun, you could model the /p/ sound for “please” or “play,” or you could model the signs for please or play. If your child can already say one word model a two word phrase for him/her to imitate like, “play please.” 3. At meal time and snack time give your child bite size portions, rather than dishing up a whole serving for them, then wait for them to request more. If no attempt is made model the sign “more,” help them make the sign, or model the /m/ sound for them to imitate. 4. Limit your child’s access to things like the t. V. Toys, food, or going outside. Set it up so they have to make a request or ask for help to access these things. You may accomplish this by putting favorite things up high or locked up. 5. Play turn-taking games such as rolling the ball back and forth, or pushing a car back and forth. Once your child expects another turn hold the car or ball and wait. Look at him/her expectantly if no sign or verbal request is made, model an appropriate request such as the sign for “ball,” the /b/ sound, the word “ball” or “ball please”… 6. Use tight containers to store things in. When your child indicates he/she wants a cookie you might hand him/her the cookie jar (tightly sealed of course), when he/she can’t open it and hands it back to you make him/her sign open or help. 7. Use wind up toys or other toys that are difficult for kids to operate on their own. Wind up a wind-up toy your child gets a kick out of then hand it to them when they want a turn, wait for them to request help by using the sign or the word to operate the toy. 8. Blow bubbles then screw the lid on tightly and hand it back to your child for their turn. Wait for them to request help with a a sign or a word. Model the sign or word if necessary Consult Speech Pathologist.

I am 20 year old my problem is I study a lot but I forgot many thing. It hard to remember many thing. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course it will hard to remember many things at once. So you will need to stagger your learning to absorb what is suitable for your abilities. Break down your portions to smaller sizes and do some selective studying. Apart from that you may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: 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. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Planning is important for every work. First divide the syllabus. How many chapters. Write on one note book. Write how many questions in each chapter. Start slowly with small questions. Then note down how many questions are you covered for one day. Based on your capacity you may plan how much time it will take then you will achieved. Without planning simply sit in the in the home and imaging unnecessarily about I am very lazy etc it is useless. Try the the work. Slowly solve in a systematic manner. Then you achieved be think always in a positive manner. Do not get depressed easily you have very good capacity use it in a proper manner. Ok best of luck.

Hi Ms. Lybrate-user, you are going through a tough time indeed. However, first and foremost you need to de-stress yourself and relax so that you can think well and act prudently on the steps next. I would advise you to remain mentally strong as you already are, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that there always is light at the end of the tunnel, however dark the tunnel may appear to be at present. Practicing mindfulness meditation can also help you relax, de-stress and keep you focused even during these tough times. You may have a flight of disturbing thoughts initially but slowly you will get to do better and be able to control your mind/ thought pattern well. A trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place can possibly help you relax, rejuvenate, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Simultaneously, do keep up your dietary habits, lifestyle & hobbies and try enjoying every moment of your life irrespective. Its indeed important that you stay psycho-socially active too. Should you still have issues keeping calm and focus, you can always seek help from a psychologist who can clinically evaluate and put you on anxiolytics suitably, should it require so. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Medicine usually don't have such side effects. You can do this, do slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning to be mentally strong. About 30 times. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Avoid garlic and red chilly and non veg and eggs. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.

Dear lybrate-user, From what you have mentioned, it seems that you are suffering from symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD causes symptoms of repeated thoughts, in your case regarding contamination. It could also be doubts. Due to these thoughts, compulsive repeated behaviour results, in your case repeated cleaning and hand washing. In case of doubts, it could be repeated checking behaviour. OCD is a treatable condition. Medications and psychotherapy in form of exposure and response prevention will help you recover from all the symptoms. Please consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated. Accordingly treatment can be initiated. I do hope that you recover completely. Best wishes.
