I don't feel like eating and can't sleep whole night. My mood swings. I always get angry and can't concentrate in anything. Always tired and weak feeling.

Homeopath, Secunderabad
If you want to really change then there can nothing holding you back. Just begin from where you are. Take one idea and start working on it. Write down all that you want to change and develop a plan/strategy so that you can confidently move ahead even if the mood swings a little! Have faith in yourself as you are going to appreciate yourself for all the struggle that you are taking now to change yourself. You will enjoy this challenge if you take it in a light spirit. Do not worry if you fail sometimes. Just be aware and learn from your mistakes. Commit yourself to excellence in whatever you do. Eat only healthy food ( more of fruits and vegetables ), exercise everyday for 1 hour and you will start feeling good soon. Sleep for 7-8hrs daily. Avoid all bad habits and learn or do some creative work that will boost your self-esteem. All the best.

I am always depressed for everything, for that my health goes down, what can I do?
Hello sometimes our life circumstances are like that we do feel low or depressed. Try to reflect upon it and find out the reasons for it. For this you can make use of diary. Every time you feel low, try to write about the situation making you low and associated thoughts and feelings with it. If you practice this in your life then you will be able to find the root cause for these feelings. Also it will help you to find the triggering point for these thoughts and feelings and as soon as these negativity starts come in you can distract yourself by engaging into a positive task like any hobby, listening to good music. You can also try to modify your daily schedule. Try to go for walk in the morning or gym. Bring yoga and meditation in your life. Develop a new hobby which will bring happiness. You can also try read self healing books like the secret, the magic etc. I hope you will find these tips appropriate and will try to apply these in your life.

How does a person gets rid of chewing tobacco . Is there any medicine or any therapy centre.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like nicorette and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

It is possible to get into a few negative emotions after delivery. Please tell your gynaec asap and she will help you out. Or you could visit a psychiatrist or psychologist. There is nothing wrong with u. U will get fine soon. Just try to think as much positive as possible. Spend some time on yourself. Dedicate some of your work to husband, family. Hire extra help. Take a little help from neighbours. And most importantly inform your gynaec asap.

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.

Warning Signs of Violence in Relationships

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology
Psychologist, Noida
Warning Signs of Violence in Relationships

Relationships are either delicate or strong, depending upon the bonding with your partner. The bonding depends on various factors. Some of the most essential ones being emotional attachment, friendliness, sense of ease, mental compatibility and a feeling of sustained emotional support from the relationship. This is applicable to all relationships; be it a relationship with your spouse, a parental relation with your children, a relationship with your friends, relatives, etc.

Whenever we talk about abusive relationships, we picture black eyes and bruised cheeks. However, violence in a relationship usually doesn’t start with physical harm right away. It begins with subtlety and slowly builds up to mental and sometimes physical abuse. Here are some of the warning signs which should immediately raise red flags that a relationship is abusive or violent. 

  1. Hurting Purposely: If your partner has ever teased you in a hurtful way and said something to hurt you only to put the blame on you for being “too sensitive”, this is a definite sign of emotional abuse that you are going through. Trust your instincts if you feel you should get out of it. Especially, if it is starting to become routine. 
  2. Scaring You: Has it ever happened that your partner has hit a wall or driven at dangerously high speed to scare you? If the answer is yes, you’re in for trouble. This kind of behaviour gets worse! Take the warning and leave!
  3. Finding Faults: Many a time, it happens that your partner may start finding fault in the way you dress, do your hair, wear make up etc. He might get angry or force you to change your style to suit his way, beware! This will multiply in due course and turn into a dangerous form of domination. 
  4. Spying: Have you ever found out that your partner has checked your personal email, your web usage, computer history or even gone through your bag and personal papers? Take a hint; this is an impending sign that your partner is trying to establish control over your life. 
  5. Lost connection with friends and family: An important warning sign that your relationship is getting abusive is when you have lost connect with friends and family because of your partner! 
  6. "Playful" use of force in sex: Have you been forced to have sex by your partner? Or have you been threatened with violence if you don’t comply with your partner’s wishes? These are all tell-tale signs of an abusive relationship. 

There are no certain ways to tell that particular instances are warning signs of an abusive or violent relationship; the victim might not even realize, but friends and well-wishers must take notice and come forward to help.

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 always keep thinking about something like my past, people who hurted me, negative thoughts

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well your past will always be there especially if there are impactful memories. It is good when you learn from it, then it will move out of your memory on its own. Those negative thoughts and people who have hurt you will come back until you resolve them. Note down all the past bad memories and deal with each one individually with someone like a counselor. Over time these memories will gradually fade. If you are matured enough, you can even drop those events as forgotten and forgiven. Forgiveness is more important for your sake than for the perpetrator’s sake, so just go ahead and do it fast. If you think that those people may be amenable to your expressions of distress done directly to them, then do so. Otherwise just express yourself to a counselor and get going. You may even write down all the bad memories on a piece of paper and burn it down as though you have finished with those events and people. That will also help purge it out of system. These are the ghosts of the past that will continue to haunt you, until it has been dealt with adequately.

Hello, I can understand your pain at losing one very important person in life. You probably had hopes of spending long time with her and had plans for the future and now nothing is going to happen. All these thoughts might be causing you sadness, disappointment and some anxiety and anger on the other hand. While it's important to be an important part of someone else's life, yet it's also important to know when to call it off if it's not working anymore. 1. At the age when you broke up it is common for boys and girls to get attracted to each other and spent some time together. But equally common is breakups when one or both see that their needs are too different now and the other person will not fit the requirements any more. While this process is very heart breaking, but it is also important so that you can meet different people and see who is your kind of person and who will help you in the next phase of life ie. Job, marriage children. 2. By going through different relationships you will also understand yourself better and what do you want from a potential partner and discover many hidden qualities and weaknesses in yourself. It's your growing edge to work through your weaknesses and sharpen your qualities. You will also discover your passion, dreams and hobbies and interests. 3. I suggest that you look at this breakup as a learning lesson and an opportunity to improve on any thing that was your mistake and assess your life choices again. What was meant to go will go. Let it go and you carry on with your journey. You are 29 years old and some years later you might start feeling too old to get married and setle. You might feel more lonely than you are feeling already. This leaves a bitter memory of the past and chances are that you will regret staying single for so long. 4. Being flexible and independant in relationships is important. There will be times when you might not have any body's support or company. That is the time to learn to be your own friend and give yourself that love, importance and value which you want from a close friend. This is healthy self love and very important for self confidence and high self esteem. Whether you are in love or not, valuing yourself at all points is a very important aspect of high self esteem and self confidence. 5. Indulge yourself with meeting new people, going places, discovering your passion, hobbies etc. Spend time alone with yourself to nurture the person within you. If you can not do these on your own, then please see a counsellor and take their help to help you get direction back in life.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free revert and we could work together for few weeks to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
