Dear, you are just 25 and lack experience in dealing with social situations especially when it comes to your job and your co-workers. You are also in the process of learning many people and their behavior. You should keep your mind open without any prejudice. You are there to learn. If you are open to learning, you will not worry. I suggest you online counseling. Consult me. Take care.

These symptoms are part and parcel of the disease. You could go for a review to another doctor and see whether the dosage or medication itself needs to be changed. Sometimes with continuous use, the body?s tolerance for the substance may negate the effects they were originally meant to serve, and you may need higher dosages as time goes by. I am also of the opinion that you will need counseling alongside the medication to help you cope with the nuances of the disease. I have some exercises to help with concentration, for which you can contact me. You need to exercise regularly, be active, put yourself into a tight schedule of interesting and productive activities, attend to work, take some family responsibilities at home, and do some regular chores like marketing, cleaning, gardening, etc. Socializing is very important and you must make a willful effort to concentrate when people are talking. A professional will guide you through all this.

My memory is week when I read or write anything after 1 day or an hours I forget. As I am a student it creates lots of problems. Please tell me how to make my memory strong.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 are 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.

As funny as it sounds, sleep deprivation may make you fat — and not just because you're susceptible to cases of the late-night munchies (although there's that too). Women who get less than four hours of sleep per night have a slower metabolism than those who snooze for a full eight hours, according to researchers at the University of Chicago. So don't skimp on your zzz's, and you'll be rewarded with an extra edge when it comes to shedding pounds quickly.

Sir , I am masturbating for about 5-6 years. I am not able to control it , even if I try to control it , once if I am feeling a little comfortable I always start masturbating for even a very pity reason. At present I am feeling very weak , I am getting afraid of even a small mosquito or a housefly when I am alone and they make some sound or sit on any part of my body. And I am not able to converse properly if I am involved in any argument I am shaking and shivering as if someone is going to kill me. I don' t know why but I am not able to control my emotions. I am getting demotivated easily , I am getting angry for pity reason , sometimes I am getting very depressed. I don' t know what happened to me. I keep thinking of even a small situation for many days , and this is one of the reason why I am always absent minded. I am not able to keep relationships bonds proper even with my own family members (brothers , sisters , mother , father aunt , uncle etc ) . I am not able to concentrate in my studies , I know I can do it I understand things , their concepts easily only if I read and understand it with full dedication but I am not able to stay focussed towards my studies I study only for 20-30 minutes and I start losing my energy and concentration. But if I play I play properly , energetically but after that I am very - very much tired. I am no able to handle even a small situation , that other people does no even bother about .I am not able to fight with anyone I am very bad looking many people say this. These are my problems. What can I do for them?

Dear lybrate user, I think you are very sensitive, anxious and underconfident. I guess you are carrying some shame and/or guilt because of your compulsive masturbation. I appreciate your self awareness and your willingness to change. I think, you need to understand your own worth. Make a list of all good things about you. Write all positive points about your personality and skills that you have. Don't bother about what others say about you. Write what you think about yourself - all positive points. Stick this list at a place where you can see it often. Believe in this. You are only 17, you have whole life ahead of you. What you do today is going to affect your future. If you try to make yourself stronger physically and mentally, you will have a better future. Have a goal in life which would be rational and feasible. Start working towards achieving this goal. Make a step by step, concrete plan, have a fixed routine and go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Learn some communication skills which will help you in having cordial relations with people around you. Have some exercise routine - may be play some games (physical games and not computer games), go for cycling, yoga, mountaineering etc whatever you like. This will give you more self confidence and help in reducing your anxiety. Any person who is happy and confident looks good. So don't worry about looks. Once you start feeling better about yourself, you will like yourself - looks wise. If possible talk to your school/college counsellor who will help you to get rid of this habit.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

They are called nocturnal emissions and are perfectly normal. Masturbation, by itself is a healthy form of sexual outlet, unless, it becomes compulsive. So don't have negative attitude towards the same. If you don't masturbate regularly excessive semen will come out at night or other time due to physiological changes in the brain electrical activity. There will be no reduction in weight or your memory power

BHMS
Homeopath,
Soo you know your getting angry with someone. And this is not a good thing you also know it. Soo if you know your doing the wrong thing you have knowledge about that, soo if you know this you can correct urself also. U have to talk to your mother-in-law about this. Sometime this kind of thing make an impact on someone's mind. If not work try to avoid that situation. Meditation is needed. And also you need some proper homeopathic treatment for this. U can go to a counsellor for counseling. Bt dnt take psychiatric drugs. Soo for further quaries and treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.

Every thought or feeling that comes in your mind / brain is natural. Homosexual thoughts are very common in both men and women. 100% of people in the world have them. If you are attracted to your wife and have a stable and happy married life, then I would suggest that you treat these thoughts just like a heterosexual attraction. Just like you would brush away feelings of attraction towards another woman, ignore these thoughts and feelings as straying of the mind. Calling a thought unimportant is the best way to help it fade away. The more you pay attention to it, stronger it becomes. However, if the attraction you feel is very strong, you are unhappy in your marriage, you feel uncomfortable in your current sexual role, then it's time to introspect who you really are. What you do about it is another matter all together.

How to increase thinking habit while study. How to become introvert. How to read fast.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
To read fast you need to loin a speed reading course. I think you want to be an extrovert and have mistakenly put in introvert?! With regard to developing a thinking habit while studying, you will need to let your imagination go wandering after any thought that is proposed in the material. Never accept any concepts without questioning their veracity. You must try to imagine the proposed idea in a practical situation to see if it makes any sense. Every thought has a myriad of possibilities, if you only think. Sometimes it helps to generalize and explore lateral thinking. The right brain mode is the imaginative and creative brain and if exercised well it will help spread your thinking into a wider mode.

Hi, I came in touch with one of my old friend few months back. Initially we used to talk with each other a lot and started liking each other. He used to respect my feelings so much but then after some days his behavior totally changed. He treats me as a stranger. I asked him for the reason of this change but he is never ready to discuss. It really is hurting me a lot and feeling so restless. Can't concentrate on my work as well.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just leave this relationship immediately. If he is behaving without respect and is treating you like a stranger, it will seem that he is off of you. Any attempt to get him back may be forcing a reluctant lover into a relationship by pressure and that is not at all good for any relationship. This may seem difficult but you are better off without him. There are a lot of options available still and it is better if you start your search comfortably, and keep this relationship a casual one but there must be respect! get back to concentrating on your work and become more functional. You deserve this and you must show people that your are a respectful person and will tolerate no one who fails to give you that status.

Hello, Right now, you already feeling pressure of exams. It is suggested not to push yourself hard. A little physical exercises along with breathing exercises will help you in a big way. Try to talk out your emotion with a friend. Or write down your feeling. It help you to release emotions and make you light. If still feel upset, it is wise to take professional help and visit psychologist. Wish you all the best .take care.

I have heard that dark chocolate is good for depression. Will I get same benefit if I take cocoa powder. Thanks.
Dark chocolate along will not help in depression. Try following things to manage stress and over come depression. What you are feeling might be due to conic stress, result of our fast life style. You could also explain this as feeling burnout. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
