" how to naturally beat sleep disturbance" got published: one of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that the plans made during the day time or earlier do not succeed and mind speculates or wanders to find ways to make those plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in the agitated state due to being unable to find a solution. This leads to frustration which avoids the mind to go in sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. The solution to the problem does not lie in thinking intentionally further about such plans, but in faith surrender to the supreme. Instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Stress is so all-pervading in this material world that everyone is tortured by it. Stress takes many forms. We are stressed by health problems, financial problems, interpersonal problems and many more. The solution for all varieties of stress is to understand that its underlying cause is bodily consciousness, the false identification of the self with the body. As soon as one realizes that he is not his body and that his real happiness is based on harmonizing his consciousness with the supreme consciousness and he then learns the art of doing this, his stress goes flying out the window to be replaced with profoundly sweet transcendental bliss. -sda.

What should I do to concentrate my mind? What is the process of meditation? How can I do? Please suggest?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have not mentioned your age but anyway you must visit a Yoga center and get all the instructions for meditation. they are very professional about it and will guide you in the right manner right before your eyes. Instructions on paper will be misunderstood and misleading. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

Like most of us you are sensitive to rejection. You need to meet with a counselor and get some training on handling emotions. The key to handling emotions is to be able to express them appropriately. All feelings are good but the problem with many of us is that we do not deal with them properly. You cannot be free of emotions at any time in your life. It is part and parcel of our lives. In fact if you do not feel some emotions, then there is something wrong with that. The counselor will teach you to express feelings in sensible and cathartic ways.

It gives you positivity and strength to live a good normal life and you can consult with a psychologist too. Affirmations for you--------------(I AM CALM, I AM POSITIVE, I AM A HAPPY PERSON, I HAVE GOOD RELATIONSHIP, I CAN DO EVERYTHING, I AM A POWERFUL GIRL ). Try this for some time and you will feel better and be positive stay calm everything will be fine soon. Join any yoga centre or any meditation classes near from you.

Dear user. I can understand. The trembling of hands could be due to psychologic as well as neurology problems. I suggest you to consult a neurologist first. Then, if that area is clear, you can go for psychological therapy. Take care.

There is nothing wrong in doing oral sex, for that matter sex and then realizing that the person is not worth love or living. Do not people get divorced after marriage. Let her decide on her future, ask her to get a psychiatric consultation if she has emotional, thought or behavioral problems.

Anxiety

Anxiety

Combat with your anxiety issues.

Consider these suggestions.

- When we are anxious our thoughts race, our hearts pounds, our breathing accelerates. So at the first sign of it see what all you can do to intentionally slow things down. 

- Anxiety lives in our minds and often manifests in the body that's why you are feeling dryness of your mouth, fast heart beats, racing thoughts etc. So take a few moments to connect with your five senses, it will help bring you back into the moment.
 
- Be mindful while doing simple tasks, like walking, eating, reading, cooking etc. Being mindful helps remind us we are in control of our choices.
 
- Be aware of your thought process. When you have a negative thought, ask yourself" is this thought true? chances are your worst fears are not the reality of what's happening.

- Be aware of your triggers. If you know your triggers, you can prepare soothing practices better. When the mind feels prepared, it's more at ease.

Hi doc, am belongs to a very Orthodox family they don't trust girls. Am very bright student but they stopped my studies and now going to get married with a highly educated boy n am just graduate. He always said you need to improve your English your style and many more things. Now am feeling very low.in February 2015 I got engaged but till the September he called me just 2 or 3 times but he talked very nicely and friendly. I feel he always ignore my whatsaap msg. He msg me according to his wish. He said he forget to call n msg me. Its a arranged married. Please help me what should I do :(

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Hope he changes and loves you more. Usually boys r more crazy after engagement and keep messaging and talking with the girl for hours, without anything. I know people go for special recharges for free calls. Ask him directly if he loves you or not. He should finally tell the reason. Regarding your Orthodox family, hope your husband treats you as equal, if not more and wishes for a happy married life.

I get angry very soon nowadays though I used to be normal before and bcoz of this I have frequent clashes with my mom and I lost my dad when I was 3years old Please give me a suggestion to control my temper.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

It seems that for one or the other reason you are accumulating stress and in that stress your behavior is less than what you expect. This could be due to some change which happened recently in your life or might be due to our modern life style which causes this stress. It could also be due to change in your life. And you might not know what direction your life might take turn if you have finished your study and either looking for a work or life partner or some profession course. Or it could be for any other such reason. When we are stressed it is natural for us to feel lonely, feel sad and down and at times feel irritated, frustrated and get angry. As we take time out to do so many thing in our daily life we also need to learn how to take care of our inner self. How to nurture and grow our true self. Following tips will help you rebuild new response when you are stressed. Chronic stress is a byproduct of our busy life style these days, which at times leads to feeling of burnout and depression. Building your resilience will help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. 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. This 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. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. I also offer 3 to 6 months program where we need on a weekly basis to work towards your goal achievement. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Wearing females dress for sexual gratification is called transvestism. This is a type of sexual perversion if this occurs consistently leading to impairment in life. If this behavior is rare, once in a while, it can be ignored as falling under a deviance of normalcy, so do not worry. Consult a psychiatrist if you have further doubts. All the best.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

When under a lot of tension and stress I usually collapse for some seconds what should I do?
Hi, Try deep breathing exercise. Set aside relaxation time. Include rest and relaxation in your daily schedule. Don’t allow other obligations to encroach. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and recharge your batteries. Do something you enjoy every day. Make time for leisure activities that bring you joy, whether it be stargazing, playing the piano, or working on your bike. Keep your sense of humor. This includes the ability to laugh at yourself. The act of laughing helps your body fight stress in a number of ways. All the best :) Let me know if you have any questions.
