Dear lybrate-user If your heart rate increases when you smoke weed, maybe you should not do it. Smoking up does give you a buzz for a while but if you do realise, for long term this has a bad impact on your brain. Try looking for some deaddction program nearby to your place if you fall in the addiction zone. You will be out of it if you will make genuine efforts. Ask your friends and family members to keep a check on you and look for motivation amongst them. Avoid company of people who smoke. You will go through withdrawl symptoms initially but try not to fall weak due to that. Take care and Good luck.

Dear , I can understand. As you already know, this is not crunch, or not infactuation. This is called obsession. When we know something is wrong and when we go for it, that is impulsive disorder and obsessive compulsion spectrum. You will need treatment for impulse disorder. I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to over come it. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling session. Take care.

I am male of age 28 year. Since last 7-8 month I was in stress and depressed as I didn't got the job from my MBA placement but now as I got the decent job I am not at all feeling happy or anything. I also don't want to talk about it to anyone. I still feel the same as I was feeling since 7-8 months. It feels like I still missing something. I want to come out of this sadness. Kindly help.

Maybe you are sensitive and have the lingering effects of having failed to get he right job the first time itself. On the other hand it is likely that the job issue just acted as a trigger for an already lingering depression issue. Whatever it is you can still follow these instructions to get out of it: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Take a combination of Escitalopram + Clonazepam (10 mg + 0.5 mg) twice a day dose. And also use a Clonazepam sublingual tablet SOS. Whenever you get a panic attack, just take the tablet and put it under your tongue. U'll be fine. Also. Please mention the duration of your problems and the frequency of the panic attacks.

I Am not confident about myself. I lack communication skill with a stranger and am I don't mix well in a group. What should I do?

Homoeopathic medicine ACONITE NAP 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops today night itself and forget this medicine now for 15 days P.L.30 .Ask the homoeopathic pharmacit to prepare thi medicine 2 drahm in 30 number globules and tart taking 4 tabs 3 timess daily for 15 days starting from omorrow. Report me after 15 days With some time and practice (this is not an overnight phenomenon), you too can be a self-confident person, both inside and out, whom others admire. 1. Stay away from negativity and bring on the positivity This is the time to really evaluate your inner circle, including friends and family. This is a tough one, but it's time to seriously consider getting away from those individuals who put you down and shred your confidence.Be positive, even if you're not feeling it quite yet. Put some positive enthusiasm into your interactions with others and hit the ground running, excited to begin your next project. Stop focusing on the problems in your life and instead begin to focus on solutions and making positive changes. 2. Change your body language and image This is where posture, smiling, eye contact, and speech slowly come into play. Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person. Smiling will not only make you feel better, but will make others feel more comfortable around you. Imagine a person with good posture and a smile and you'll be envisioning someone who is self-confident. Look at the person you are speaking to, not at your shoes--keeping eye contact shows confidence. Last, speak slowly. Research has proved that those who take the time to speak slowly and clearly feel more self-confidence and appear more self-confident to others. The added bonus is they will actually be able to understand what you are saying. Go the extra mile and style your hair, give yourself a clean shave, and dress nicely. Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but others are more likely to perceive you as successful and self-confident as well. A great tip: When you purchase a new outfit, practice wearing it at home first to get past any wardrobe malfunctions before heading out. 3. Don't accept failure and get rid of the negative voices in your head Never give up. Never accept failure. There is a solution to everything, Low self-confidence is often caused by the negative thoughts running through our minds on an endless track. If you are constantly bashing yourself and saying you're not good enough, aren't attractive enough, aren't smart enough or athletic enough, and on and on, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You are becoming what you are preaching inside your head, and that's not good. The next time you hear that negativity in your head, switch it immediately to a positive affirmation and keep it up until it hits the caliber of a self-confidence boost. 4. Be prepared Learn everything there is to know about your field, job, presentation--whatever is next on your "to conquer" list. If you are prepared, and have the knowledge to back it up, your self-confidence will soar. 5. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list Life is full of challenges and there are times when it's difficult to keep our self-confidence up. Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing. Once your lists are complete, post them on your refrigerator door, on the wall by your desk, on your bathroom mirror--somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are. If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.

Self-Diagnosis

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
Psychologist, Delhi

Hi everybody,

I am doctor Nabhit Kapoor. I am the founder and president of Peaceful Mind Foundation and Global Youth Mental Health Forum. Today's video I am going to speak about is the term psychologist and self diagnosis. Two things which are hampering our society and this profession a lot. And especially the professionals who are actually willing to work in this field. I have been coming across people who are claiming to be psychologist are behavioural science expert or mental health professionals and when we get in depth of these people they are either from engineering background, all teachers who have taught chemistry and Bio or somebody who has just a motivational speaker.

They start calling themselves a psychologist are mental health professionals which is a think quite illegal and because of this people are getting wrong direction into the field. Your experiences might count but the professionals who are actually working hard earning degrees and experience and expert is into this field. They are automatically ruled out because of these people who are having these self claimed experiences and because of these self claim experiences these people who are working actually into the field are not ready to come forward and help people in the right direction.

Another thing which we are facing these days are self diagnosis. tThe major cause of self diagnosis is we type a symptoms and we go on Google we get to know our problem as the word depression, stress, anxiety are so loosely used these days everybody is getting depressed and anxious having a stressful day in and day out. We should know the meaning of these professions. We should know the clear meaning of these terms because these terms are not to be very loosely used but what we are doing? So condition in the society today that we are not willing to go to a clear professional and secondly.

We are not able to understand the clear meaning of these terms. Let's take for an example depression which is a stability sadness of a person but the person calls it as a depression many more such things are coming in the mental health profession and mental health field which are not actually related to the psychology but people are actually using it on the name of psychology and because of this the field is getting the bad name and many such professionals who are self claimed ones are moving ahead and the real professionals are going at the back seat.

What I heard from you today is whenever you are feeling conflicted you feel sad you feel some where you are stuck please refer to a psychologist and an authentic psychologist go and have a clear background check of the person because the psychologist will actually deal with your psyche. Because when we are dealing directly with human beings we are directly dealing with their psyche and their minds and as and when we tune your brain. We tune your psyche the person will move towards that direction so I ask please go to the authentic psychologist do not refer to search x y z lemon who you know or who gives advises who give suggestions because they are not psychologist please respect this field and please respect the profession. 

Thanks!

1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of, "You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you. If these don't workout consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

What is making you feel so weak inside- try to gain strength from the beautiful relationship you had with your loved one.- this loving relationship itself will give you the strength to go on. Be the person your loved one always wanted you to be. Give someone else around you a reason to smile, someone who has not been so lucky as you to have enjoyed a loving companionship. The more love you spread in the memory of your loved one, the more you will be thankful to god for having sent such a nice person in your life, no matter for whatever little time- at least you had someone close. Think of those who are so lonely that never experience what god gifted you! so, bring smiles on people's faces and you will be smiling in return! god bless you,
