I am sure you are one of many who has not combined medication with therapy. This will give you partial recovery. There are so many challenges that depressed people face and there are so many ways of dealing with it. Counseling from a professional will definitely help in discovering those techniques to learn to cope with these difficulties. You will definitely notice the difference and life will be a lot better for it.

Many effective treatments are available for smoking. They can be started if your father is motivated to quit and there is support from the family. The reason for becoming unconscious needs to be evaluated thoroughly.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

You might have got your lingual frenum cut. It may be causing tongue- tie if it is due to anxiety, get psychological help you can visit stammering clinics (where stammering is cured through introduction of rhythm in speech) or alternately hypnotherapy is also very effective.

Inability to speak may be due to various reasons. She needs to be investigated thoroughly to know the cause. It could be related to cochlear abnormality or poor development of brain; needs assessment for the same.

I am a student after coming to home from school or from anywhere when I sit to study things which I saw or heard keep repeating in my mind which don't let me study am I suffering from some diseases.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Hello Manoj I think the best way to help you concentrate better is to do this small activity which I tell you: everyday before you sit to study, I want you to close your eyes and breathe in and out deeply, at this time, I want you to only focus on your breathing, focus on each and every breath. Do not bring to your mind any thoughts at that moment. If thoughts come (which is very natural) I want you to push them aside as you completely focus on your breathing. Do this little exercise for 10 minutes each day, before studies and you will surely see positive results in a month. Also, you are not suffering from any disease. It is very normal for the human mind to wander away and hence, I wouldn't suggest any medication as such. Enrolling in yoga will also help you focus better

BRAMARI PRANAYAM Early morning for 15 minutes along with lots of water during the day is your answer. BRAMARI PRANAYAM or Bee Breath 1.Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. 2.Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril. 3.Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last. .4.Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled. .5.Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils. 6.Repeat twenty times.starting from 5 times

If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, depression inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2. Avoid stress, physical and mental exertion, have adequate sound sleep for 7-8 hours daily in the night 3. Go for regular exercise 4. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control your emotion and relieve stress 5. Check for refractive error, sinusitis hemoglobin, bp 6. Avoid prolonged use of cell phone/computer 7. Consult neurologist to rule out other causes of headache, if required take a ct scan of head to exclude any brain lesion 8. If it is migraine you have to take migraine prophylactic drug after consulting neurologist.

I think I am in depression and somehow have turned to alchohol and cigarettes to counter it. I was a person who would refrain from indulging in things like alchohol. But I feel like a victim who has fallen in the vicious trap. What do I do? I socialise with a lot of people but I hardly have people in my life whom I can call friends. Perhaps that' s because of being cheated by many in the past. I am a very short tempered person and this bad quality of mine has brought a lot of attrocities in my life and has seeded up a lot of unwanted enemies in my life. I have had many druken brawls in the past and that has somehow psychologically affected me. People have started judging me for my alchoholic habbits and loud nature. I have suddenly started to become a quieter gut and that is somehow killing me from inside. There is this senior guy from my college. We sometimes work together. I find peace in his company and somehow I feel he cares for me like he would do for his youmger brother. But I am not sure if that is for real or just another illusion. The work pressure in my college has beening adding to all my problems because I am pursuing my degree in textile design and have lately realised that what I would love to do is graphics. Although this course was not a total waste as they had initially incorporate few elements of graphic designing in the earlier semesters but the last two semesters are more inclined toward textiles than graphics and hence I am finding no. Interest towards this. But again, I am just left to two more semesters to have a degree in hand so I am somehow thinking of completing my college and not dropping out as that would literally give a heart attack to my parents. I really understand the value of life. I want to get out of all my problems but somehow don' t know how. Hence I thought it was better to consult an expert rather than thinking about it all day and yet reaching nowhere.

Dear, I sincerely think you should change your attitude first. Judging yourself using the eyes of others is not advisable. Secondly if you want to change any habbit, you should do it. Cribbing about a habit when you are unable to do makes you stressed and anxious and disappointed. Exercise, keeping yourself entertained, being in the company of wife and children and relatives, temples etc help you keep aways from' those' compelling situations. Tale care.

I smoke 10 cigarette per day. I started smoking at the age of 17. My question is what will that affect to my body. Should it affect other body parts like brain?

MBBS

It surely can affect all parts of your body including brain as cigarette contains chemicals which though feel good are actually poisonous intoxicants.

Psychologist,
Do you know why some people accomplish more and generally are much happier in their lives?

The field of positive psychology explains this. Research says, one of the signature strengths that such people have is" gratitude. Gratitude makes them take better care of themselves physically and mentally. It also makes people engage in more proactive and healthy way. It promotes the motivation for exercise, healthy diet and willingness to wriggle out of any negative situations in life. It helps boost your immune system. Since it makes you more optimistic and alert, you cope better with stress and feel healthier.

How to have an attitude of gratitude?

1) be mindful of what you have - being thankful for very small things actually bring a great amount of joy. Have gratitude for small things like sunlight, rain, flowers, a cup of tea, a caring spouse, a child's laughter. It gives us the resilience to cope with tougher situations.

2) keep a gratitude journal - every night before going to bed, write down" what was the best thing that happened to you that day. It fosters better sleep and a sense of well being and satisfaction.

3) reframe challenging situations - it's not the situation but our perception of the situation that makes it challenging. You can reframe your reactions and respond by saying that" I may have a very demanding boss, but I have become more organized, patient. It will help you to attend to your work and be cheerful.

4) practice saying thank you - it's very simple. When you buy a bus ticket, just smile and say'thank you. Feel the first raindrops on your face and smile in gratitude for all the life it brings.

5) focus your attention outwards - according to emmons, a us psychology professor, people who are more aware of the positives in their lives tend to focus their attention outside of themselves. They feel complete, satisfied and fulfilled in their lives and are capable of helping the less fortunate ones.
