You need to divert yourself to some work and keep yourself busy. The more busy you will be, your body will automatically get tired which will help you to sleep better. Don't think too much, and have warm milk before retiring to bed.

Apart from Serta 100 mg, before you are exposed to situations which provoke anxiety, depending on the symptoms you can be given some medicines, 2-3 hours prior to the social situation, kindly consult a psychiatrist.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

Dear, Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you?re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse ?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

6 bad behaviors every man should pay attention to

In light of the several recent cases of men battering their wives and maltreating women, it’s about time we talked about certain unhealthy character traits


The statistics of people, especially women in Nigeria, who are abused daily or sustain permanent life-altering physical and psychological injuries is startling.

In trying to attain a more healthy and peaceful society, here are 6 characteristics every man should get rid of:

A few of the initial behaviors you may want to check are intense jealousy, fixation and history of abuse. If you have relatives that have been known to be violent in the past in any way, then you may want to address that.

Here are the six other behaviors to look out for:

Threats: If you tell a lady to do something and she doesn’t oblige you request, you shouldn’t then resolve to threats and violent promises. Being calm and reasoning things out is the way forward.

Commanding behavior: No one likes to be ordered around. A woman is not a piece of furniture that can be pushed around. Respect everyone around you and treat them the way you would like to be treated.

Irrational mood swings: If you notice that you go from 0-100 in a second, then you have an issue on your hands. Get the help of a therapist or prayers, whatever helps.

Destructive behavior: There are so many ways you can have an argument without throwing something against the wall or putting your fist through a wall.

Harmful insults: Watch the words that come out of your mouth. There are certain things we say in the heat of the moment that we can’t take back. However, if they occur often, then you should check it.

Violent outbursts during arguments: Lastly, if your voice keeps rising during arguments to a point where the people in the next compound feel like they are in the same room as you or the person you’re arguing with is flinching, then there’s an issue.

Finally, in regard to this issue, if you know anyone in an abusive relationship or you may be in one yourself and you are the abuser, use these signs as a check and get some help.

Have you done hormonal tests, including thyroid function tests. Skipping lunch is a bad ides, you need to have small spaced low calorie meals. Eating 6 times a day 1/4th tummy will also help in weight loss. Also there are genetic factors, is there obesity in your family? if so, despite all these measures, sometimes it can not be helped.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of sex/love/future/marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

My in laws are always shouting and fighting. Shouting on my kids. I get depressed and angry. Please advise.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
If you are planning to stay with your in laws then it' s important to have open communication with them. Find out what is their reasons for fighting and tell them how it affects your children and you. They may or may not be able to understand you. As a parent it' s your responsibility to ensure that your children don' t undergo undue stress. You might want to keep them apart sometimes yet also let them develop their own relationship with each other. Some children have their own filters to filter out unwanted experiences while others get very much impacted. For more details click on private chat if you are interested.

Hye, thanks for the query. At times poor nutrition can cause nutrition insufficiency leading to low stamina which actually converts to laziness. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

Hello. It's good that you have made your mind to give up this habit of chewing tobacco! There are bad effects of chewing tobacco which can ruin your whole life! Now, overcome this habit gradually and slowly, you can opt for some other healthy thing like saunf, dark chocolates to replace tobacco. Also, take homoeopathic medication by Schwabe - Daphne Indica 1x/ thrice daily for 4weeks. Revert back. All the very best!!

OCD with anxiety and Depression maximum takes 3-6 months for an experienced psychiatrist to bring all the symptoms under control, I am surprised you are suffering for 6 years without feeling satisfied. Remember OCD is a long term/ many times life term disorder and prepare yourself for years of treatment, but surely you can be made to achieve 90-100% remission even in toughest of cases of OCD. Get a 2nd opinion.

Yours kids are now young enough to be sleep in a separate room. If possible. You may give a separate room to them. Every one have privacy. You should not sex while they are sleeping in your room. Because growing young kids are very inquisitive in nature. They may awaken. You may do when those are not present at home and even not probability to come. Condition may be manipulated very well. If planned well. Wish you good relations.

I am 56 years old and I am not able to control my anger, which gives me tensions and bad experiences. Kindly advise.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

I have been becoming anger even for small reasons. How to overcome this. Can you plzz help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy

It is important to understand what meaning you make from others' words, actions and behaviours. Many times you may perceive others' actions/words from completely different view and they may mean something else. It will be a good idea to ask others what they mean, before getting angry with any one. Try to have open communication with the people around.

One of my family member is addicted with smoking and is unable to relax. How can he quit smoking?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Smoking addiction is treatable condition. But, it can only be attempted when you beloved family member is motivated. Elaboration about the side-effects of smoking should help in this regard. To start with, he/she can attempt to decrease the amount of use by himself/herself. Your psychiatrist will help you subsequently.
