Give up smoking

Give up smoking

If you're a smoker, quit. It's the single best thing you can do for your heart health.

Smoking is one of the main causes of coronary heart disease.

A year after giving up, your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.

Past life regression may caused for this problems. Remembering past life incidents cannt digest the present days. Unknowingly or irgorance we do some mistakes. It happens. But recollecting it is not good sign of present life situations. Last year incidences we recollect we are not feel happy intelligents feel very uncomfortable. But it is done everyone life. What we do is past mistakes we should learn one lesson. We take further steps it is not repeat again it is called maturity. So my advise do not think about past incidence. Your friend done one mistake he was not reveled in counselling. Due to this his problem is not rectified no problem now go and attend good psychologist for further counselling and modify his behavior attitudes also. Ok best of luck. Medicine has certain limitations.

Hi I am 25 year old and I am suffering from short term memory loss I will keep the things anywhere and then I forget to recall I have lost many things within just 1 year I have really fedup with this problem everybody is scolding me but I am unable to recognize why this thing is happening with me can you please help me.

You may be under some severe stress and may be denying it. I suggest that you meet with a counselor and sort that out. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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 sugar and junk food.

I am socially weak and can't interact with anyone. I feel depress and don't like the way I am. What should I do?
Inability to interact with people the way it is expected is a sign of social anxiety and phobia. Also it tends to make you more reluctant every time to interact with people due to loss of confidence and self esteem. Social anxiety or phobia can be completely treated with use of counselling, behaviour therapies and medications if required.

Dear Basil. Welcome to lybrate. You are suffering from grief due to separation anxiety. Usually such separation anxiety gets itself cured within some weeks. In your case, it is still continuing. I hope it has continued as a depression. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for counseling. Take care.

Hi it may not be anxiety, but an excitement / euphoria which you have not experienced till now. Do not try to control if just experience and enjoy it. If you feel that it is affecting your functional abilities or if there are complaints that it is becoming a disturbance to others, get in touch with a clinical psychologist to confirm whether its normal happiness or the initial stage of mania/ hypomania.

This is just an anxiety and you need to practise mind control and relaxation, meditation and yoga. You can also practise by talking in front of a mirror imagining you are talking to a girl.

You should go for immediate medical check up and investigate these symptoms you are having. You must also go for counseling for your habit and since you have tried it many times and failed, you may consider admitting yourself to a rehabilitation center to help you give it up. The problems you are having are not at all healthy and smoking could be the cause. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. 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 also 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. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I hv quit my start up with him. Am job hunting. I'm 29 and i'm scared I won't find a good life partner now. I'm depressed. I get anxiety attacks.

Have self respect, this person doesn't deserve you, also you are fortunate that you didn't marry him, and you got timely reminder. Just relax and move on in life, throw them out of your house and don't give them your house. Don't bow down to his dictates, and understand what would have been the situation if you married him. Be quick, relax you will find good partner and man of your life. If you cant handle yourself meet an expert marriage and relationship coach.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

I am staying separate from wife for about 5 years now due to legal issues. Now when the case is about to come to an end chances are becoming to get reunited. Apart from her mental/ emotional state. Is there any way to make out if she was leading active sexual life in past 5 years.

If you want to accept her, accept her completely then there should be no room of how she has been in those 5 years. Apart from that you need to trust her to build your relationship again, otherwise just let it go because this doubt may always be there and may lead to unhealthy relationship.

I lost somebody close to lost last year and since depressed I don't knw wat can I do.
Hi, Losing someone close to us is one of the biggest stresses in life, it changes our life in many ways and affects us on many levels. I do not know how close this person was to you and under what circumstances you lost him/her and in what ways your life has changed after his/her passing. Yet the truth of life is that no matter how great our loss, we still have to go on and live our life on a daily basis, somehow we have to find meaning in our life once again to go on living. There are a number of things you can do such as:- - Think of the things that were important to this person, how he/she would have liked to see you doing in life had they been around and then try to do those things. - Honour their memory by doing something that was close to their heart maybe donate or volunteer somewhere; write a diary or journal where in you note down your precious memories with them. - allow yourself to feel the pain, sadness, anger, helplessness, shock etc as these are normal feelings that emerge when we lose someone close to us. Do no try to shut them down. At the same time do not let them overwhelm you, acknowledge them and then also try to do what needs to be done on a daily basis so as to move forward in life. - Speak to your family, friends and near and dear ones, talk about your feelings, ask for help if you need it, go out with them and do some of the things that would have made you and your loved one happy. - allow yourself the time to heal, give yourself permission to take time off when you are feeling down. -Very often we feel disconnected from the rest of the world, it feels as if the rest of the world is going on when our life has come to a standstill. Try to connect with people who may be going through a similar situation or read pages online/on facebook such as The Grief Toolbox etc. They help us to feel normal and give us strength to go on. You could also read a book such as Healing after Loss. - Last but not the least, please pay attention to self care - have proper meals, get good rest and exercise, go for walks, they help us to refresh ourselves too. - If you are experiencing very severe symptoms, then do not hesitate to see a psychiatrist for some medication that may help you to relax and lift your mood too. Hope this helps.

It's not uncommon and happens with most of enthusiastic people of your age. Simply do pranayam, meditation and eat light non spicy food. Keep gut clean by tarunikusumakar chooran. After two weeks of all this, pl get best quality raw herbs like jatamansi, shankhpushpi, brahmi etc processed and prepared in high antioxidants herb juices. This will work as antidepressants and brain toners.

Anger and aggression is mental disorder. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.
