Definitely possible. First and foremost will be to practice in a familiar surrounding . Go to gyms and other activity places to interact with people. Try to practice in front of mirror. Practice relaxation exercises and yoga which can help. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Avoid too much caffeine and junk food. Last and most importantly believe in yourself and face it. Usually we feel nervous because we think what others think about us. Erase such thoughts and march ahead in life. All the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Indecisiveness signifies significant underlying anxiety. So please tell me, do you feel worried all the time about about multiple issues ranging from day to day small problems to slightly bigger ones also? how is your sleep? in addition loss of self confidence also signifies anxiety. Now the solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

I got married in the year 1998, from beginning I don't know it may be a curse to me that my thinking/like/dislike etc. Is nothing matching with my wife, as a result I never felt easy in my married life and there is always a conflict between us.Gradually it become a irritation of my life, thus though I am married I feel always alone which makes me sleepless night almost everyday. Hardly I can sleep 2-3 hours at night and day long I am always busy with my office activities. Sometime I feel tremendous headache and sometime for giddiness I can not work properly. So if you kindly give me your valuable suggestion I will be grateful to you. Thanking you.

These differences are coming up because you two are not compatible. The more similarity in compatibility factors, the better the relationship. However, when compatibility is poor, good adjustability is needed. This is where you and your wife must find and know the many ways you can adjust to live with each other. If one or the both of you do not make these adjustments, the relationship will be under threat. Since both of you have been staying together for so long in spite of this, there is some hope to work on it. You must talk to her and find out what she is finding difficult to cope with you and what does she want you to do to reciprocate. You on the other hand need to list out the difficulties you have with her, and expect her to change or adjust. I know you do not marry a person to change them, but expressing what it is that the other person can do for you, is okay for the betterment of the relationship. Do not expect her to read your mind nor for you to even try to do so with hers. It is communication that will work out solutions to your advantage and for the peace. Yet, not only peace, you need to live happily.

U r insecure or worried about something, ask yourself. Have a positive self-talk, and learn What are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on.You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ Stress Management Super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

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. Take care.

I have been able to control my smoking habit, I been been able to curb it from 8 in a day to 3 in a day. Honestly I do wanna quit it or bring it down to 2 in a day, What I wish to know is how much does it affect it I consume 3 in a day, will it be equally destructive as it was before?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It will be less destructive to smoke less but the habit continues and that is what is a problem. When you are addicted, reduction is not much of an achievement. There is no such thing as a ‘little addiction’. So any attempt must be complete, abrupt, and immediate. Even a delay by 24 hours can sabotage the resolve. With epilepsy to boot, smoking a packet a day is a deadly addiction. But it is not easy because there is a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night! Since you want to quit I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Perseverance with it until you are completely over it, is the key. You are still young and all the ill-effects of the habit can be restored and you can regain a lot of the losses: monetarily too.

My problem is going on for around 6 months. I went to a neurologist with problems of body ache, insomnia and anxiety. He suggested me meds like lonazep and test of vitamin B12 and vitamin D. I took these meds and got the tests done three months after when the problem came up again. In the tests my vit d came as low as 7 and b12 was borderline. I went to a physician who prescribed cap lumia, once a week, shelcal everyday for three months and Matilda forte for a month. Along with this I had heaviness/burning mild pain in the right side of my stomach you see the ribs which went till back. For this he got ultrasound done which had everything normal but there was a mild fatty liver. After s few days of this I got throat infection and fever for which I got antibiotics and got ok. Now the problem is that the burning pain which goes in between is still there but is mild though. I sprained my knee so am going to an ortho who says its a ligament injury. But also have popping sound coming from my joints, I still have anxiety and insomnia. And also some rashes have come on my body last week small bumps which are itchy. Could these be because of medicines? I even got an HIV test done which was non-reactive- And I feel really very low on energy and mood. I have been seeing different docs for sometime like I said, a neurologist, physician, and two different ortho and have gone through many tests. Have also lost 2.5 kgs of weight. Which I don't mind as I am over weight. What do you think could be the problem or is suggested?

Dear Lybrate user. You have described the symptoms suggestive of anxiety, somatic problems and paresthesias like burning sensations, insomnia and some depressive features. These are some common combination of problems in one's life in today's world full of stress. You should practice stress management techniques and also there are very good medications to treat your symptom combination. Take the right step to inquire with a psychiatrist. Take care.

" it is better late than never" it doesn't matter how slow you are in learning, it is how far you are motivated towards your goal that counts. Some tips to improve memory; 1. Don't go further without understanding even a single line. 2. Memorize the headlines. 3. Try to find key-words under every headline. 4. Before going to bed, try to recall headlines and key-words. If it is forgotten, immediately refer to your study material. 5. When you wake up in morning, do the same practice of recalling while sitting at your be.

Sir, it appears to be a work related stress. Try to do regular physical excercise. And try to share all your things with your good friend who can listen to you. Still the same problem persists, then see a psychiatrist.
