Hi, pahli baat to yah ki aap akeli nahin hain jo aisi samasya ki shikaar hain. Bahut se log aise hote hain jo is prakaar chhoti chhoti baat par pareshaan ho jaate hain. Aap davaai continue rakhe aur saath mein yah sochen ki aapka control to sirf aapke behavior par h doosare ke behavior par nahin. Ho sakta h ki saamne vala busy ho is vajah se time par aapko javaab nhi de sakaa. Hi sakta h ki vah bhool gayaa ho. Jab bhi aap tensed feel karen tab deep breathing karen aur turant ek glass paani pi len aur apne aap ko kisi kaam mein involve karen taaki aapke dhyaan us baat par se hat jaaye. Shaam ke samay joote pahan kar tej chaal se rozana kam se kam aadha ghanta ghoomen. Pet saaf rahe isliye healthy khana khaayen. Yah exercises neend waali problem ko theek karegi.

Hi, you need to learn to manage your stress. You can discuss with me to learn stress management at work. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body.

hi, I can understand your feelings. Ragging is a big cause of depression for any human being. First thing you should protest against it but if it is unavoidable and if it happens then tell yourself that you don't have control over others behavior and their behavior does not have the power to affect your inner peace. If something happens physically like you mentioned then just think that your body is just a tool nothing else. This thought will give you the strength to overcome any sort of depression. Give yourself the auto suggestion always that I'm a very strong person and nothing can disturb my inner peace. This auto suggestion will control your emotions and feelings during and after ragging.

The doctor seems to have given an advise which does not seem to be in accordance with medical literature. A person whould have optimal Body Mass Index according to the height. When weight loss occurs in depression and anxiety, it needs to be evaluated for the cause, and addressed accordingly and not a generalized statement as this. All the best.

Your blood pressure is having normal variations within the normal range and you should continue your blood pressure medication because of which your blood pressure is still within the normal range. Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90. As far as your heartbeat is concerned I need to understand concepts Palpitations are feelings or sensations that your heart is pounding or racing. They can be felt in your chest, throat, or neck. You may Have an unpleasant awareness of your own heartbeat or may Feel like your heart skipped or stopped beats The heart's rhythm may be normal or abnormal when you have palpitations. Normally the heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute. The rate may drop below 60 beats per minute in people who exercise routinely or take medicines that slow the heart. If your heart rate is fast (over 100 beats per minute), this is called tachycardia. A heart rate slower than 60 is called bradycardia. An occasional extra heartbeat is known as extrasystole. Palpitations are not serious most of the time. Sensations representing an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may be more serious. You need to get yourself checked what you are having is intermittent tachycardia / arrhythmia which means that intermittently your heart rate increases or the heart Rhythm changes which can be dangerous if it does not get corrected on its own. Or it can be an early sign of impending heart disease. But to diagnose it you need to get an ECG done while you are having the rhythm problem or you can get holter monitoring for 24 hours during which if you have this episode it will get registered and documented. Also you need to get a complete lipid profile done as well as a echocardiogram and blood sugar levels to look for risk factors. Once you have done that you need to Consult a cardiologist with the reports.

I am 27 year old student. I have some memory problem. I quickly forget what I read .so I can not understand what should I do to improve my memory power.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

I am 21 years old boy. Due to some depression I am smoking daily basis. How much it can harm me.

MD, MBBS

I am 21 years old boy. Due to some depression I am smoking daily basis. How much it can harm me.
Hi lybrate-user, if you know that excessive smoking is due to depression then that should be dealt with first. As depression is caused due to an imbalance of a chemical in the brain, hence to restore that balance medicines would be required and simultaneously we can also deal with your smoking problem too. As per your question regarding how much smoking could harm you. Smoking might be helping you to release your tensions and that is the reason you might be smoking on a daily basis, but it is only temporary and in turn harms your body too. If it could help people in releasing tension then it would have been prescribed by doctors as a medicine but unfortunately it doesn't:) hope you find this answer useful.

Dear lybrate-user, Rejection is a painful thing and difficult to accept. What you are going through is normal, however this certainly cannot and should not persist for too long and interfere with your daily life. Love is a beautiful emotion but it also brings with it expectations. When your expectations of acceptance from your friend wasn't met you are feeling dejected. You need to understand​ that your friend hasn't reciprocated to your feelings the way you wished he had, but that certainly doesn't mean that he has rejected you as a person. There is no need to feel humiliated. I suggest that you accept the fact that you have feelings for him but he doesn't feel the same way, and there is nothing wrong in having feelings for someone. At the same time your life has it's priorities and needs, so take life in control and start to slowly incorporate other things/activities. I advice you to talk to a professional, it will help you express yourself openly and deal with your emotions, give you a platform to understand​ yourself and if you are slipping into depression then professional intervention will help arrest it right away. All the best!

First of all don't kill yourself. Life is only once. It's up-to you how you take or accept things. You can lead your life without expecting anything from others. You will be happy.

My wife often reacts very badly to things/ events, which we feel are normal (common) and need not reaction. She starts looking petty matters in big scale. She also feels that she is not good at anything and she can not do good. I tried to convince her to consult a psychiatrist but she denies to go to psychiatrist. She says that she can not share her problems with any third person. When I spoke to one psychiatrist, he said untill he meet the paitent and talk, he can not say anything. In such situation, what should I do?

I understand your difficulty in this situation. There are 2 things that you can do: 1. The problem that your wife seems to be experiencing most often leads to arguments and fights within couples. It is often the case that each person feels that the other is largely responsible and doesn't want help for themselves. Your wife's stand is completely understandable. You can seek professional help for the couple as a marital unit, rather than just your wife. That approach will make her more forthcoming, since it'll ensure that the spotlight will not rest on just her. Also, it puts down a healthy initiation for therapy, since she will get to see that you want mutual happiness, without solely blaming her or her behaviour for the problems. 2. You can use technology, with apps like lybrate ensuring that your wife doesn't need to leave the comfort of her home to meet a psychiatrist. Both of you could have an online consult. That would definitely lower her reluctance to visit a psychiatrist.

Hello doctor I am a very introvert person and quiet also. I generally keep most of my emotions to myself. In my class also I have many things (doubts) to ask but I am unable to do so as I am introvert and self conscious ,unconfident and I barely talk to anyone. I do not feel like interacting with anyone but when I want to talk to somebody my introvertness stops me. Nowadays, it bothers me alot as I am not able to express myself and people around me thinks that I am a timid and unfriendly person. And whenever anyone says that I am a quiet person it hurts me badly .because I know earlier I wasn't a quiet and dull kind of girl but for some years I hv became so. People take me for granted they come to me when they need help. Currently I do not have any friends. Also I hv developed a negative mindset I find negativity in everything . And I feel sad for no reason. And I get easily affected by what people say. I am always sad and always think negative about myself and feels people around me do not like me and will target me & make fun of me that stops me from going out . I get worried easily on small day to day things. please suggest me what should I do to change myself and improve my personality & thinking .

You are indeed unique and there is no one who is going to be like you, ever! You have a problem of self-acceptance, and if I may venture to say may be a rejection issue. This latter may have happened due to an actual rejection which you may have experienced very early in your life. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socializing skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally!

Hi, its called light therapy. It is not clear why bright light therapy may work for people with depression, but previous research has shown it often works in the treatment of people with seasonal affective disorder (sad). One idea is that in people with sad, the light may correct a problem with their inner biological clock called the circadian rhythm, lam said. The second major theory is that light affects neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, noradrenalin and dopamine, he said" and these are the same neurotransmitters that are of interest in antidepressants for treating depression as well.
