Bad Past Memories

#sahajanand mind point-mental wellness clinic#dr. Vinesh chandramaniya#let it go.

Don't hold on: Tips on how to heal from" bad past memories that keep haunting you?
1) avoid stressful situations whenever possible. Specially avoid any stressor that can trigger your" past memories"
2) stop keeping news or stalking those who have given you bad memories. Any good news from their side, can be bad news for you.
3) distance yourself from negative or toxic individuals. In case you cannot, then learn to keep the distance and adjust to some of their nuances.
4) have at least one person in your life to whom you can reach out, call, or text whenever you need. 
5) create vent outs - selfies, food photos, social media, singing, cooking, photography, all good.
6) make alone time for yourself each day. Go inwards, explore your innerself.
7) set boundaries. You will have trigger points - topics, songs, places that will bring out the bad memories very fast. Be careful of them.
8) burn the bad energy - before going to bed, light a small incense stick in your room. While lighting it, experience your bad energies being burnt and taken away.
9) give yourself permission to have bad days. They happen, and sometimes there’s nothing to do about it.
10) practice gratitude daily. The best way is not just by saying thanks, but also eating healthy and reading motivational posts.
11) get an expert mind guide. Many times you need guidance for those traumatic memories.

I have severe anxiety. I do sleep about 7.5 hours. But it doesn't seem to be enough. However I can't prolong my sleeping hours. What should I do to get a good sleep.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I have severe anxiety. I do sleep about 7.5 hours.
But it doesn't seem to be enough. However I can't prolong my sleep...
I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety, which in itself can disturb your sleep. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Hi, She got analysed and treated for depression Later didn't go for follow up now after 15 days she got back into depression. I am worried how to handle her Should I continue same medication or should I consult doctor again?

It would be better if you can revisit the doctor again for her medication. This time the symptoms may be different or even if same, it is always better to visit the doctor to get a clarity about the duration of medication. Moreover, along with the treatment of medicine, try to consult a clinical psychologist regularly in your area or make your wife take few sittings. This is going to help her weigh her thought process and a continuous venting of emotions is important for her. It is also important for you to handle her right now with lot of patience and care. Soon the situation will be fine but right now she requires your care and attention. I hope this helps and you can write back again.

I was prescribed clonotril 1 mg for panic attack I am taking the tablet from March and then I slowly reduced it to 0.5 mg and now from 2 days I am taking 0.25 mg because I am experiencing low libido. Pls tell me how to stop this medicine.

Psychiatric medicines should be taken under doctor supervision - always. There can be side-effects that your doctor can monitor. If you visit nearest patanjali kendra, they can give some brin tonics to strengthen brain power and flush out toxic effects of allopathic medicines. But, what is most effective and a must is - you practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. It is excellent to drive depression, negative thinking out of your system. Not necessary, you have to be present in front of your tv at 5 am. Begin by switching on your tv just whatever time you get up and start practicing as being taught. Gradually when you regulate your sleeping time, you will be able to get up next morning at 5 and will be able to do complete workout. Best of luck for good health and happiness.

I am feeling very tension. Past I have a problem now its solved but whenever I remember that I used to get very tensed and thinks to make suicide.

Hello, at 20 years of age, it is very natural to feel tensed about future and feel insecure. Here it appears you are procrastinating over some thing in the past. Remember, past is past. And unless you keep digging it out, it can not be brought back. May be you have done something wrong and you fear it may affect your present and future? in that case, it is best to talk it out with someone. A trusted friend or a parent, tell them what is wrong and they might be able to be your support system if the problems strike.

I feel depression now a days about my study because I forgot any task very soon. please suggest me sir.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
I feel depression now a days about my study because I forgot any task very soon. please suggest me sir.
Feeling sad due to unexpected results in studying may not necessarily mean depression. However if you have difficulty concentrating due to some unresolved stress or anxiety, that can be effectively dealt with counseling and medications if required. Consult a psychiatrist personally for an evaluations and further suggestions.
