I have lot of pressure from home front. My wife's habit to follow all types of religious stuffs i.E. Vast, astrology, normal baba, ramdev baba. 24 hrs we use to have same discussion on rahu, ketu shukr man gal. I have no intention to stop her but there has to be limit for all these things. When there is no positive responses on discussion on these topics from my side the chapter from Mahabharat starts at home. Really fed up.

Psychologist,
If you don't respond positively, then how do you respond to her? She can pursue any interest of her choice. And so can you. You just need to talk to her assertively that her hobby is not something that you understand, so cannot participate in discussions. Find some legitimate excuse to move out of that situation, but don't forget to show and tell her that she's still a likeable person and you enjoy her company. Offer other activities that you both can do together. In Mahabharata, 2 people are needed to fight. If you don't fight then she will have to back of. Remember Gandhiji and talk sweetly and firmly with your wife. Soon she will leave you to do your own things in peace. Take care.

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. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, the given tilted eye looking may not be a symptom at all in case of the social phobia. But as you got 63 percentile marks in your social phobia test, we can address it as social phobia. Social phobia is fear to be in public situations, feeling anxious or nervous to speak to strangers, entering into a crowd etc. If you have all these symptoms, I suggest you to consult a psychologist for psychotherapy treatment. Take care.

Hello, first of all I know how frustrating it is to be anxious. Your negative thoughts come uninvited and they invade your capacity to think positive. Well, you have the lock and the key to your mind, you can control which thoughts you are going to let in, and which thoughts you would eliminate. The moment you feel anxious, close your eyes, and acclaim positi've thoughts such as: I am not going to be anxious, I have the power to defeat anxiety, I am my own boss, I will overcome. This itself should help you to create positive energy. I will be always willing to help if you require extra help. Regards.

You may have to examine both your study habits and how you answer at exams. I will give you some guidelines for the former but you need to check out the latter with a colleague, teacher, or tuition guide so that they may know your habits and give you more specific instructions. 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

lybrate-user, you are a person of overthinking but it's not always bad. You need to LOVE YOURSELF FIRST. You are the best person to understand yourself. 1) make a list of things that you are best at. 2) the moment you get angry, you breathe in deeply. Sit down or move away from the place where your anger level is getting higher. 3) think of positives of your past life that how wonderfully you have handled life situations n past. 4) your strengths need to be repeated loudly by you. 5) you need to stop judging yourself. Stop browsing through net .a lot about your behavior. 6) start meditation .do PMR, mindfulness exercise 7) start writing down your grudges that you have against others. And think that you have spoken to them. TAKE CARE! APPLY THEM. In case anything. Still goes on. Then go for audio session.

SAY NO TO NEGATIVE THOUGHTS !

Unwanted thoughts can make you feel anxious or depressed. They may keep you from enjoying your life.

A technique called thought-stopping can help you stop unwanted thoughts.

  • What you think can affect how you feel. Thought-stopping helps you change how you think so that you feel better.
  • Changing your thinking will take some time. You need to practice thought-stopping every day. After a while, you'll be able to stop unwanted thoughts right away.
  • Some people may need more help to stop unwanted thoughts. Talk to your doctor or a therapist if you want more help to stop thoughts that bother you.
