Lybrate-user, to start with, there are two types of people:(1) those who study in the day time.(2) those who study at night. You can choose your type. There is no problem in choosing your comfort zone. Brain cells die faster by thinking too hard on unnecessary issues and not by studying hard. You do what you r comfortable, without any distractions. All the best.

I and my husband are very much depressed due to family problems. I cant see my husband in that condition. What should I do?

From my side. I will suggest you to do yoga and meditation daily. It will help you to feel relief for some stressful situations and energize you. And if that also does not work. Then consult a good skilled homoeopath for it. Because mentally disturbed patients are best treated with homoeopathic medications.

If so, Your dad must undergo some blood tests to find out the exact cause for the pain. For time being he can take homoepathic medicines Rhustox 30/ 2 dram 3 pills three times a day for 2 week, and report back aftr 2 week.

First thing we remember 21% of our memory daily, so nothing lasts forever untill & unless we revise it. Just try to remember your childhood experiences; remembered exactly? Not?yes you remember only those which you shared many times with others and rest forget. So understand you will forget your past very soon if you replace it by present. Find any creativity of your interest. Involve yourself in it. Be social. Put new things in your brain daily to vacate the past. Try some basics to be happy. 1. Believe on God, he will do best for you. 2. Start your day with greet. When you wakeup greet your mother, father,wife, kid,sibling. 3. Try to keep smile on your face. 4. Do charity even very small like cross the road to any elder, give a glass of water to thirsty. 5. Try to remove the feeling of hatered and jealousy from your heart. Cheers you will be cure very soon for sure.

I'm unable to sleep deeply since a week. It's like I take naps in the nights. I was tensed for my studies because of the lengthy course when my exam dates weren't published. But now as they are declared, I feel relaxed but still can't sleep. I don't know the reason. My doctor advised me to meet a psychologist, who has given me some medicines and now I am able to sleep properly as well. My query is that will I get habitual to these medicines and depend upon them throughout my life? Or is it okay to take them? Also suggest me what should I do to sleep properly as when I don't, my head start aching badly as I have migraine too. Suggest me some natural stress relievers as I think stress is the reason for my sleeplessness. Also if you find any other reason please let e know.

Dear Aayushi. Your present problem is stress related. Please understand stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. Stress disorder is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. There are no side effects for the medicines and if you continue for more than one month, you will be addicted. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for advise, counseling and therapy. Take care.
