How to reduce tension. I am not getting my full sleep. 8 hours of sleep but than also I feel sleepy lazy. Please help me.

How to reduce tension. I am not getting my full sleep. 8 hours of sleep but than also I feel sleepy lazy. Please help...
For good sleep, just try out these simple ways - 1. Stick to a sleep schedule- Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle. If you don't fall asleep within about 20 minutes, leave your bedroom and do something relaxing. Read or listen to soothing music. Go back to bed when you're tired. Repeat as needed. 2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink - Don't go to bed hungry or stuffed. In particular, avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. 3. Create a restful environment - Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs. Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, might promote better sleep. 4. Limit daytime naps - Long daytime naps can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day. 5. Include physical activity in your daily routine - Regular physical activity can promote better sleep 6. Manage worries - Try to resolve your worries or concerns before bedtime. Stress management might help. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks. Meditation also can ease anxiety. Identifying and treating any underlying causes can help you get the better sleep you deserve. If above things doesn't help you, then consult us for homeopathic medicines.

Sweet pain means there is no severe pain. You are changed your attitude from three months. You have a guilty feeling anything happens. Then you go for check up. But it is normal. It means you are psychologically disturbed. When tests are normal. It is related to psychosomatic disorders. It need psychological counselling. You have a weakness to change your attitudes and suffers yourself. Better to develop strong attitude. Build a very good personality. Do not think too much about small things. Be share all your feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. If you want to healthy personality. Do not touch which is not suited to you. Walk more time take good food, take rest. Be spend most of the time with your close friends and family members. Be optimistic and positive. Be sociable. Be enjoy the every movement of life. Ok all the best.

" loving to get slapped by girls" to relieve your anxiety is something very unusual. However it's your call to continue getting slapped or find better and harmless alternatives for that in life. Anxiety can be dealt effectively with medications and counseling provided you make up your mind for that. Consult online for further queries and assistance.

Dementia is a kind of progressive neuro dgenerative disorder occuring generally in older people. The chances of being affected by this condition are equal for both people with mental disorders and normal population due to various reasons. Early intervention, life style modification strategies, psycho education for the family members and social network of the affected person will help to lead a better life.

The treatment of depression usually remits in6-9 months and than medicines can be discontinued gradually. But compliance need to be taken care of. If again the problems comes than usually the course goes for next two yrs and still recurrent depression is there than the medicines have to be continued for next 5 yr to life time varying person to person.

Dear Lybrate user One sided love is painful. Drugs are not the solution. Your self esteem is hampered so that needs to be improved. Secondly your focus needs to be changed from that girl to your life career and other relationships that you have. Make a list of things that you enjoy and do them quite often. Identity the triggers that make you think of her and make you feel hopeless and upset and avoid those triggers. Think about the ones who love you unconditionally and spend quality time with them. Make a list of your goals both short term and long term and according to them make a list of things that you need to do. Break all your goals into sub goals and figure out which things you need to do right now and work hard on it. Make a list of your achievements and be happy that you have done it. Notice all the the achievements you have even the small ones and treat yourself for them. A healthy mind lives in a healthy body so eat healthy have a timely and a good quality sleep everyday do some physical exercise anything you would like to. Motivate yourself from these negative experiences instead for them making you feel low and hopeless. Contact me in private if you think you need any help. Good luck. Take care.

How To Deal With Stubborn Or Obstinate Children?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How To Deal With Stubborn Or Obstinate Children?

While children can light up your life with joy and laughter, sometimes they can appear to be monsters with their temper tantrums and their stubbornness. Stubborn or obstinate children can be very difficult to deal with and could end up disrupting your life as well. However, there are a few techniques that mental health professionals have suggested that can help you deal with your stubborn and obstinate child. These are mentioned here briefly –

  1. Hear Them Out: It’s often the case that children tend to be stubborn or obstinate and start screaming when they think they weren’t heard. This makes them feel helpless and thus forces them to bottle up and then take out their frustration by either not doing what you are telling them to do or doing exactly the opposite of that. The best treatment in this scenario is to hear them out and patiently try to resolve their problems.

  2. Ensure They Follow Your Example: If one or both of the parents are extremely stubborn, then this would translate into a stubborn kid as well. Doctors have said that obstinacy is often in the genes. Also, environmental influence is a big deal for them as well. Ensure that you are flexible enough with your partner and the child picks up on it.

  3. Teaching Kids About Give And Take: This is a very important lesson in life as it teaches kids to choose priorities. If you teach your kid to always give, then it sends a message that putting themselves second is the best option. However, if he or she is always fighting to take first priority, it may lead to too many conflicts later. Thus it is best to teach them that it is okay to fight for what is yours but also let others have their way sometimes. This attitude will help them develop a balanced attitude and lessen their obstinacy.

  4. Give Them The Illusion Of Choice: Children are very malleable when it comes to their minds and you can use this trick to do certain things that make them appear they have some control when they actually may not. For example, if they are unwilling to go to sleep, you can say that you cannot make them sleep, but they have to stay in bed. Your child would then automatically fall asleep after some time due to boredom which would end up serving your purpose.

  5. Use Scolding Or The Parent Card As A Last Resort: If any of the techniques mentioned don’t work, then you can scold or warn your kid with consequences which may result in capitulation. For example, if you child is not willing to come back and study, then try and stop them from whatever they were doing and make them sit with their books. This lets them know that certain areas you will absolutely not compromise on and they will understand the limits better. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.
