Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal.

Hi I am 24 year old, I feeling anxiety and nervous every time. My hands all shivering. Please advice me.

Hi I am 24 year old, I feeling anxiety and nervous every time. My hands all shivering. Please advice me.
Dear, you can control your anxiety and hands shivering by deep breathing. When you are anxious your breath is faster, you have hyperactive sympathetic system. You can consciously change it by starting deep breathing. You should inhale for four seconds, dont hold breath and exhale for six seconds. Again inhale and exhale. Do it for three minutes, you will be more relaxed. When you breath slowly sympathetic stimulation get reversed. You can do it anytime anywhere because it is not pranayama. Pranayama has some restrictions. You van practice deep breathing regularly in morning and evening to get accustomed to it. I can help you to remove unnecessary anxiety by personal counseling and coaching. all the best, you can overcome the problem easily. I am with you to help. Take care Dr. Yash velankar.

You have to build up confidence and mingle with friends who are fluent in English and start talking to them without fear and ask them to correct you if you make mistakes and should have patience.

Stress and diabetes don't mix. Excess stress can elevate blood sugar levels. But you can find relief by sitting quietly for 15 minutes, meditating or practicing yoga.

*Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. The problem can be treated by homeopathy and without adverse effects. Take Nux vomica 200 twice daily. For further help,you may opt for private consultation. (Prime Rs. 149/)

I go to bed at 10 pm but can' sleep after 2 or 3 am, it is continuing for last six moths after taking morning walk around 7 am again I am able to sleep for 2 hours.I don't have any other problem and don't take any medicine.please advise me what to do?

MD Psychiatry

Many times when the sleep is disturbed it leads to many problems in the body and the mind. In today’s fast moving world sleep is disturbed by our surroundings and our activities. Here are some simple steps to improve your sleep. 1. Keep a fixed time to wake up every morning regardless of what time you go to sleep. 2. Use your bed/mattress only for sleeping. Better don’t use it for watching TV/browsing the net/chatting on phone. In case you haven’t noticed separate furniture are available for those activities.! 3. Avoid taking tea/coffee after 5 pm. No question of smoking or alcohol – these are sure fire ways to have a disturbed sleep. 4. If you don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed, walk out of the bed to a different room. Engage in some simple activity like reading a pleasant book/listening to some melody. 5. Don’t keep staring at the watch/clock while trying to fall asleep. 6. Try to unwind with a warm bath and gentle music before going to bed. Grandma would say drink a cup of milk. Listen to her.! 7. Sleep in a place which is not noisy/bright – pretty obvious isn’t it.?! Yet we ignore it too often. 8. Consult a psychiatrist for help if above methods fail. Please don’t self-medicate. We are here to help.!! - Dr.Parthasarathy,MBBS,MD.(JIPMER), Psychiatrist OMR Chennai ( Thoraipakkam)

Actually I have problem with my voice. I can not speck louder in some circumstances. And I am not okay with my voice.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

poor academic performance and Learning disability an eye opener

Psychologist, Mumbai
poor academic performance and Learning disability an eye opener
How often have you reprimanded your child. Write neatly! stop being so careless. Why are you so distracted. You cant remember any thing. You are hopeless at studies. And so on and so forth. Your child could be having a learning disability and you haven't even noticed it. And your young child is emotionally scarred, has lost his/her self confidence and gone into a downward spiral both academically and psychologically.

Today ld is prevalent among 12% of school going children and is often left unnoticed. If identified at an early stage it can be remidiated (if not cured).

Unidentified ld can leave a child emotionally scared and academically backward.

What is learning disability?
Learning disability is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language -spoken or written, which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or do basic mathematical calculations. It is characterised by
A) disorder of attention and hyperactivity.
B) memory disorders.
C) academic characteristics (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculcia).
D) disorder of listening.
E) disorder of spoken language.
F) visual, auditory, haptic perception deficits
G) motor deficits in fine and gross motor skills

Some common signs of learning disabilities
1) does your child have a illegible handwriting,
2) mixture of cursive and print writing,
3) unfinished or omitted words in a sentence,
4) difficulty mastering rules of language,
5) remembering facts and numbers,
6) poor handwriting,
7) awkward pencil grip,
8) trouble with word problems in maths,
9) frequent reading and spelling errors (d, b) or (left, felt),
10) difficulty following sequence of directions,
11) trouble with word problem in maths
12, trouble learning maths facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, difficulty measuring things

If you notice at least four of the above signs you need to consult a professional.

Hi Becoming emotional for every incident. Particularly when have to leave people. Can not stop crying. Age 63'?
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Sir, how to control emotion about crush and forget girl and I am trying to move on but I can not do.

Sir, how to control emotion about crush and forget girl and I am trying to move on but I can not do.
There's nothing that you cannot do! You need to distract yourself, make other friends, go out with them, indulge in activities that you enjoy doing, follow your passion and get busy! You're only 28 and you can't afford to cry over a girl that was just a crush and not even a relationship! Time does definitely Heal but you need to have faith and be patient. If you feel low, talk it out with some good-meaning friend or consult a counselor/therapist who can "uplift" you. Common, get up, dress up, cheer up & show up!

People start smoking in teen age. How could we prevented them as we know it is an adolescence related problem.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
It is true that people get habituated to smoking in teen age or adolescent life due to peer pressure or media temptations. Please remember that smoking is toxic to your body, mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit, the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of smoking can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in smoking. In place of smoking, spend your time by doing yoga and chant the names of god who you have faith in. It has been scientifically proved that by doing yoga and chanting, the habit of smoking can be stopped. By chanting with love, soon you would be swimming in an ocean of pleasure which is million times greater than flickering pleasure of intoxicants like tobacco, nicotine etc in the smoking, and automatically the attraction to the low taste of smoking would stop.

Depressive disorder is a condition, where a person is mostly sad, has negative thoughts, keeps crying, cannot enjoy life etc. Once she is diagnosed with this condition she needs to be medication till the doctor asks her to stop it. With depressive patients, there is a threat of suicidal attempts. With medicines, she will behave normally, but if she stops the medication on her own, she will have relapse. Along with the medicines, your wife needstherapy/counselling sessions. She is very young and continuous medication will have ill effects on her, like - weight gain, loss of sex drive, etc. To save your wife from this, please consult a counsellor, when she is still on medication. Counselling will help in treating the root cause of her depression, hence after the counselling process is over, with the consultation of your psychiatrist you may stop the medication. You also can talk to a counsellor, who will help you in understanding her situation and will also help you in modifying your behaviour, if necessary. Take care.

I am 19 years old, and I have a great sort of anger. I actually do not know wt I am doing if I am angry. What should I do.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
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. 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. 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 spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. Take a timeout. 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. Identify possible solutions. Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. To avoid criticizing or placing blame which might only increase tension use" i" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. Don't hold a grudge. Forgiveness is a powerful tool. Avoid sarcasm, though it can hurt feelings and make things worse. Practice relaxation skills. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as" take it easy. Listen to music, write in a journal.

You cannot forget your past: that is a memory which will fade away over time if you did not indulge in it. If there are people to forgive, that you must do for your own sake, even if they have not asked for forgiveness. The memories may have a lot of emotions attached and associated with them. These have to be dealt with, ideally with a counselor, and given closure. Once that is done the memories will be there without the negative associations and energies connected to them.
