How to forget love and keep ourselves away from depression and concentrate into studies. We were in a relationship from 3 years ?

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology, Bachelor of Arts - Psychology and English Literature
Psychologist, Coimbatore
Hi lybrate-user, love is an experience that most of us face in our life, but if you want to forget for some reason which you are well aware and made up your mind to forget, then you can go ahead. There are many ways to forget love, you have to be crazy of something else may be what you like to spend more time in like swimming, music, etc. Once you divert yourself into something very strongly, then it is very easy to forget. First you should see beauty in each and every part of your life from nature to kids, which is the most easiest way to overcome depression, and I would suggest you to attend yoga classes also to gain concentration and make your mind more powerful. You can mail or call me if in case you have issues regarding the same. Hope you lead an happy and prosperous life ahead. Regards.

Hi, homoeopathy offers good solution based on such mental symptoms- take these two medicines one day before and on the date of journey.- 1. Arsenicum alb 200-- one dose (6 to 10 pills) in the morning and one in the evening 2. Gelsemium 200--one dose (6 to 10 pills) in the morning and one in the evening.

I having so much stress of my life how can I reduce my stress give me proper solution for that. I hope you understand my feeling and you reply question as soon as possible.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1.Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2.Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3.Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4.Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5.Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6.Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7.Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8.Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9.Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10.Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11.Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12.Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13.Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14.Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15.Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16.Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17.Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18.Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19.Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20.Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive If you need any prescription please consult me as we cannot prescribe in questions session. Regards.

Few months back I was suffering from depression. Cut my wrist and got 4 stitches. Now I encounter difficulty in sleeping and feel very alone and sometimes want to cry very much. I have shared my problem with my best friend but he just say me that you will destroy yourself. People never understand my problem. I can't sleep at night easily and this effects my mood and I suffer from headache. Please help me.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, You may be evolving into a borderline personality disorder. Depression, cutting wrist, feeling alone, sharing with a boy etc may be due to your personality weakness. Still you have not fixed your personality at 16 years of age. You can develop a better personality if you take treatment like Cognitive Behaviour therapy or DBT. Please consult a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist who is trained in these therapies for help.

We are married before 1 year and our relationship is good. But she has a concern with my family members from the start. She always have perceptions towards my family. I tap my wife's phone for some calls and I found her mother guide her wrong. They talk about me and my family very irrespectfully and some time abuse us on phone. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First of all do not ever tap into your wife?s phone calls. Besides, it is bad manners and absolutely unethical and reflects a lack of trust. You are already suffering from depression and to know your wife?s personal conversation will certainly upset you because she has a close bonding with her mother from the time of being in her womb! If your relationship with her is good, that is all that matters. Since you are hardly married for a year, you must give her time to adjust with your family. I hope you are not living with your family too. Then the adjustment will take a lot of time. There will always be differences between your family and hers. Some of these differences will be difficult to stomach and some with be easy. If you discuss the problems with her and explain the situation, it will be better and will work out smoothly. The first two years of a marriage should be spent with each other alone because there are a lot of things to be worked out between the young couple. At that time you do not need other family members to be around and cause more distress. In fact, if it is your family, they would naturally be biased towards you and will take your side. Then your wife will feel ostracized and it will cause a lot of discord between you two. You need to respect those differences that are bound to crop up but do not use it to increase the conflict. Yes, she should not use these problems to get back at you. Fortunately she is discussing and even cursing your family in the privacy of her conversations with her mother, which I think is okay and she can be given that margin. We need to respect her privacy and let her have her say with whatever she condemns as long as she does not use it openly to your family.

It depends, consult a psychologist for detailed assessment. Psychologist can advise whether you need therapy or if its a disorder medication from psychiatrist. You need to explain symptoms in detail for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

I am an 18 years old female ,I'm not able to get enough sleep due to stress and depression. I get headaches often too any remedies for this ?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak.

Hello lybrate-user, when it comes to employment in the present era, its quiet challenging and competitive. We have to cope up with the market, competitors and have to speed up our abilities accordingly. We may not be tech savvy, or may not be using gadgets in our earlier days of work, but the scene is very different now. I would say, you may have to brush up your skills and abilities depending on the nature of work you are on. If you are able to do this, your insecurities and depression can be automatically worked on.

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.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi, Get your check up done. No need to cry, everything is treatable. Increased weight and obesity can lead to low testosterone levels.[Changing your dietary patterns can make a big difference not only to your testosterone levels but to your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Start changing your diet by cutting out processed, packaged, and prepared foods. Eating “whole” foods means cutting out excess sugars, fats, preservatives, etc. Try to incorporate: More fruits and vegetables More fish and skinless poultry while limiting red meat More complex carbohydrates, including whole grains, lentils, beans, and vegetables More nuts and seeds Omega-3 fats are healthy fats found in a variety of foods. These include those found in eggs, algae, fish and mussels, but also plant oils like flaxseed, hemp and walnut oil. Healthy fats actually help to build a healthier body. Lots of water is essential to any healthy diet. In addition to hydrating you, water can also stop you from feeling hungry. Start a strength-training routine. If you have never lifted weights, used resistance bands or used weight machines, hire a personal trainer or physical therapist to teach you the proper form and procedure. If you are very weak, start with resistance bands. This gentle form of strength-training allows you to use a rubber strap to train weak muscles before lifting actual weights. Do this 2 to 3 times per week for the first 3 to 4 weeks. If you have a joint or back problem, you may want to graduate to stronger bands and stick to this form of strength training. You can increase your testosterone levels by up to 20 percent by lifting weights 3 times per week for 11 weeks. Strength training in the evenings can increase testosterone levels in the evening. These effects tend to be brief and smaller the better shape you are in. They can still help. All the best.

I am a student. I tried many times to make my studies good but my mind starts wandering here and there. please consult me that how can I make my studies long termed and concentrated?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am a student after coming to home from school or from anywhere when I sit to study things which I saw or heard keep repeating in my mind which don't let me study am I suffering from some diseases.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Hello Manoj I think the best way to help you concentrate better is to do this small activity which I tell you: everyday before you sit to study, I want you to close your eyes and breathe in and out deeply, at this time, I want you to only focus on your breathing, focus on each and every breath. Do not bring to your mind any thoughts at that moment. If thoughts come (which is very natural) I want you to push them aside as you completely focus on your breathing. Do this little exercise for 10 minutes each day, before studies and you will surely see positive results in a month. Also, you are not suffering from any disease. It is very normal for the human mind to wander away and hence, I wouldn't suggest any medication as such. Enrolling in yoga will also help you focus better
