Hi lybrate-user, sit comfortably. Take a long, deep breath and exhale it slowly while saying the word" relax" silently. Close your eyes. Let yourself take ten natural, easy breaths. Count down with each exhale, starting with" ten. This time, while you are breathing comfortably, notice any tensions, perhaps in your jaw or forehead or stomach. Imagine those tensions loosening. When you reach" one, open your eyes again. Do this exercise for panic attack and seek psychotherapy from psychologist.

Hai sir this is nagarjun, am 19 years old, from the last few years am really going into depression, what is the reason am not understand, can you help me to come out from this.

Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Hi there, first of all, you realised that you have a problem and it needs to be attended to, is a good sign and shows your interest in life. You are in a transition phase of your life from adolescent to adulthood. This stage involves stress and worry about future and career descisions and also establishing an identity for yourself in the society. You would sometimes feel that no one, including your parents understand you. There would be hormonal surge that may cause intense mood swings along with being very irritable. Whatever may be the cause, there is help around. You can consult a professional and discuss all the aspects with them and resolve the issue now itself so that your future road would be hopefully smooth.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your age is just 29 and amnesia or dementia like memory problems are not likely. Therefore, you don't have to worry about those. Memory includes understanding, retention and recap. You should try creative ways to study somthst retention and recap are easy. I suggest educational counselling for you. Take care.

My age is 23 yrs. Preparing for govt. Exams for last 2 years ,my exams are in next few weeks and this is going to be my last attempt as I already wasted two precious years of my life. Still I don't feel like studying I am tensed and stressed I know if I fail this time also my life is going to be miserable .all people around me of my age group have a job but still I am not working hard to get a job for myself. I think l lost interest in these exams. I am not a hard working person .I don't feel like doing anything just sitting thinking negative ,getting frustrated and stressing unnecessary instead of studying. I think this year also I am not going to be selected. I am getting frustrated as I know I am not working hard so I won't be able to clear this time also. Nobody in my family can understand what I am feeling and going through. I have a lot of personality issues timid ,introvert ,negative thinking ,rigid ,poor communications skills (I cannot even talk to sales or customer care people ,imagine my level )and many more bad qualities. Also have no friends for like so many years .These two years also enhanced my personality problems as I mostly stayed indoors appearance wise also gained a lot of weight. Also when I think of other alternatives (if not selected) I feel I won't be able to sustain as I am low confident and not able to make friends .i hv a negative outlook of life and I feel everything in future is going to be negative. Not moving forward in life no growth just stagnant like a tree all the people / friends I use to know are doing wonderful things in their lives and growing each day and I'm still the same as I used to be. Right now I'm feeling depressed and hopeless. What should I do now?

Life is full of ups and down my friend. It has not happend to you only. It happens to many people but in a different ways. You just like others have many other options. Just relax and do not burden yourself. Every sucessfull person had worst times in his/her career or life. ITs part of life, take it as an experience. It is not the hard work which you can see and get results, it is also the consistency and sincerity which pays, may be a bit later, but it pays. Its your life, do not compare yourself with others. Your have different opportunities and problems than others. So what ever you are doing, if you think its not good, then simply stop doing that. It is as simple as that. Do not worry, you are just a kid. You have alot to learn. Stay positive. Stay in touch. Opt what you like. Do not be in a herd. Good luck.

Every personality is different from person to person. Hand writings also different from person to person. There is no good hand writing and bad writing. Everything is specific signature. In this stage very difficult to improve your hand writing. I think you are internally suffering from any other disturbances. Better to analyse your internal frustrated thoughts. Better to share with others. Better to friendly with others. Do not be alone. Do not think I loss confidence. Confidence comes based on our activities. Better to do activities with confident. Then it improves your confidence. If not possible better to consult psychologist to analyse your internal feelings and problems. Best of luck.

General Physician,
Feeling tension, is a common complaint and often without any reason people get tensed. Proper mind control by doing mediation is a very useful method and have to follow many steps as described here To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand" This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'can notered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when 'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech. "I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than, "You make me so mad by being late. 7. Learn to listen to the two sides of the conflict that you are in as if you were the mediator or the counsellor. If you can listen and respond in this way you will bring peace and solutions to the conflict more quickly. For example, in response to an employee's raise request, you might say, "On the one hand I understand that you really need the raise, and on the other hand I represent the company, whose funds are very scarce at this time. Is there a way that I can work on your compensation package that does not involve cash? Here, the mediator's point of view can look for the creative compromise that takes into account the limits and the needs of both parties. 8. Take a playful attitude towards developing the skill of emotional self-control in high conflict situations. You could view maintaining self-control in a tense, angry conversation as an athletic feat. You could also view developing this skill as similar to working out at the gym with weights - the more that you use your self-control muscle the bigger it will grow and the easier it will be to remain calm when tension is great. 9. Wait a few days to cool down emotionally when a situation makes you feel wild with intense feelings, such as rage. As time passes, you will be able to be more objective about the issues and to sort out the truth about the situation more clearly. 10. Make a decision to speak with decorum whenever you are angry or frustrated. If you give yourself permission to blow up, people will not feel safe around you. They will feel that you are not predictable and will carry 'shields' when they are near you. The fear and walls of others will not support your goals for success in relationships or at work.

I last some body close last year I am depressive very you are a desire my I am very glade for you.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
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 months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

I am a married person but my wife always avoiding me at the time of sex. Why she is not cooperate me. Yes per yer one to two time she permitted me. Why it depress my mind and I search a new girlfriend for my mental cool.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, I would recommend you to talk to your wife on this freely and let her talk her heart; may be she is going through some mental stress or mental trauma, or she may have some medical condition which makes her tired through out the day (which makes her to avoid sex) or may be she is not comfortable during the sex or may be the bond between you and her is not that strong enough (give her emotional, physical support with full attention and keeping your ego away; spend quality time with her daily, go out for a holiday with her only keeping your kids at home or with your parents). If she has general weakness, you can give her homoeopathic medicines - Five Phos./ 3 times a day and Avena Sativa Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup water/ 3 times a day/ 1month. Revert.

I am 24 years old and got married before 1 and half year about. Me and my husband were living apart after 10 days of our marriage because we both are working in different cities and we just met in 2-3 months or few days. But now we both shifted and started living together. I don't know the reason but instead of making love we both started fighting with each other. I am really not getting the reason the situation is getting worst and worst. This is my fault I got angry in each and every situation. We both love each other a lot. Please tell me the reason. Why this is happening with me. Why I am getting hyper so frequently.

General Physician, Mumbai
It is normal to have differences in opinion" REAL MEANING OF MARRIAGE": From a spiritual perspective one should feel that their partner is something more than just my husband or my wife. A husband should feel towards his wife that this is the daughter of God - this is God’s deeply beloved daughter that has been entrusted in my care. How you treat her is how God will receive you. How you speak to her, how you act toward her, how you protect her are all important. Protection is said to be on three levels - physical, emotional and spiritual. To give that protection, to be forgiving to each other and to honor your spouse as God's property, God's gift, is how you will make spiritual progress. And a wife should feel that her partner is not just her husband but he is God’s beloved child entrusted in her care to protect, to be faithful to, and to encourage. If you see each other in this light, marriage really is yoga. Your relationship will be yoga in essence and you will make great spiritual progress.

I am 22 years old female. I forget the things which I read. What I should do to remember?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.
