I normally get out of depression in the evening . Usually have problem in sleeping. But in the morning I become deeply depressed. Is this usual or how can be permanently out of depression.

1. Sleep well and regular. Irregular sleep can have some serious consequences. It affects both our physical health and also contributes to anxiety and stress. Anxiety as such also leads to disruptions in sleep. When feeling anxious, always try to get a full 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and it can work wonders to improve your condition. 2. Always keep smiling. Take a quick break in between your hectic work to get some laughs with your friends. Laughter can reduce depression and anxiety and has proven benefits. 3. Tidy up your living space or workspace. Keep your things clean and clutter-free. That helps us think clear and thus reducing levels of anxiety. 4. Say thank you often. Expressing your thanks for something helps reduce anxiety. 5. Eat smart. Eating more of foods which are rich in vitamin b and omega-3 fatty acids and also healthy whole grain carbs. Vitamin b contributes to good mental health. While omega 3 fatty acids help with both depression and anxiety. Whole grain foods boost serotonin and helps us remain poised. Eating high-sugar content food and processed foods can increase levels of anxiety. 6. Learn to breathe well and relax. Short, shallow breaths arise when you are tensed. So consciously breathing deeply, plus increasing the duration and depth of breathing helps relax the body and mind to a great extent. 7. Meditate. Meditation has so many positive effects on stress, mood, and anxiety. Club meditation with positive thinking to improve your general well-being and overall health. Yoga is also very effective to take off stress from the body and mind by deep relaxation and breathing techniques. 8. Chill and be silent. Reduce the noise and clutter talk that contributes to anxiety. Find time for yourself and be alone to muse upon your own matters without anyone disturbing you. 9. Worry. Yes, we can cause ourselves to freak out, but only for a certain amount of time. When something weighs heavily on your mind, or you believe something terrible is most definitely going to occur, commit to only creating that worry for 20 minutes. Think of all the possible outcomes of the scenario, figure out some game plans, and then quit thinking about it after 20 minutes go by. Have a friend call after the allotted time has passed to avoid the temptation of going over the time limit. Or schedule some of that playtime right afterward. 10. Plan for the future but do not worry about it. Make time tables and to-do lists so that you will not be worried about finishing stuff and so that you can increase your productivity. 11. Be positive. When you feel anxious, train your mind to think and feel positive and give reinforcement to yourself that you can handle any situation. This will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety symptoms. 12. Smell relaxing stuff. Go out to your garden. Smell a fresh rose. Take a deep breathe and allow the relaxation to course through your whole body. You can also use relaxing aroma therapy and use it indoors. 13. Go out and spend time with your friends and family. Spend time with your pets social support reduces anxiety and stress to such a great extent that it is almost always bearable. So next time you get on your nerves, go out with your friends, chat with them, watch a movie, spend some time watching the waves in the beach with your partner, talk to your siblings. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

Dear lybrate - user, it is common in some people, so enjoy in early mornings nothing wrong in it, but explain to your better half your problem, once you get confidence on you spend more time for foreplay before you sleep that helps you for arousal.

Dear Rachel, Welcome to lybrate. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. You should be able to learn books in a way that you will not forget anything. "effective learning methods" will be useful to you. Consult a psychologist. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

I am suffering from depression for 10 years. Though I am carrying out day to day activity at office and home normally, I am no more able to enjoy any activity and doing it in routine manner and as it is my duty.

Dear Mahendra, Depression is common in a diabetic and hypertensive. Depression affects quality of life. It has been going on for 10 years. Don't you think, that you deserve something better in life? There is no short term medicine. Antidepressant tablets take 2-3 weeks to start acting on brain chemicals. Even after improvement, it needs to be maintained for many months. Alternately you can go for Cognitive therapy since your routine functions are not affected.

I have memory loss and in 2016 I want to attend +12 public exam what I want to do

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
I think when you are saying that you are having memory loss, are you saying that you do not remember what you read for exams, there might be many reasons for the first and the foremost is the anxiety, followed by correct method of studying and last but not the least nutrition. Look into these aspects and try to correct yourself or take help from other and see.

Hello lybrate-user. Clonazepam is not the solution for anxiety and depression. It only provides temporary relief that too for short span of time after which it is inefficient. You need to find the problem that causes anxiety and try to solve it.

Dear sir, my wife got influenced by brahma kumaris organization. She is not cooperating in sexual life. Can this problem be solved. Regards

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I guess you mean that she has a spiritual calling. If that is genuine, I suppose you have to live with that fact that your sex life may be all but over. Not that it is necessary for her to curb sexual activity. It is just that people, once spiritually moved, give up all earthly desires and pleasures to sustain their spiritual sanctity, so that they do not get easily distracted by material pleasures and therefore from their spiritual pursuits. I don? t fully agree with this because it is very easy to do this to remain pious. The challenge is to be able to maintain this in the thick and thin of life and live a balanced life. But I could be a voice in the wilderness on this front because you have seen most holy people giving up all the pleasures of life to pursue a religious life. I don? t suppose they are doing it just to avoid it but are doing so to give it up as a sacrifice too. Whatever you believe, it now matters that your wife has given it up whether as a sacrifice or to preserve her spiritual state is for her to say. The other point of concern is that it is a unilateral decision, and I fail to see how that is justified when one has married to stay faithful to the nuptial obligations. But then spiritual callings can happen at any time and must be respected, if it is genuine. This position of mine could raise a lot of controversies but I am open to other differing opinions to help you understand your situation and learn to live with it. Of course nobody can stop you from leaving this marriage and going into another for your own needs. The fact that she is still living with you may be some consolation; and that she is not rejecting you for another, even if it is god.

You will need the medicine as long as the doctor knows that you need them. Now if you want to come off of medication you will need to work with a counselor too so that you develop good coping mechanisms to meet the everyday challenges life. Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! If you stay episode-free for at least three years then the doctor may decide to take you off of the medication!!! You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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.

Dear Upendra, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

For a diabetic person, it is very important to take medication on time. You also need to have food suggested by your doctor. Regular exercise helps in maintaining healthy sugar levels. If you are going for a walk for 15 mts every day, but if you are skipping your medicines, it wil not be helpful. You need to do both - take prescribed medicines and do suggested exercise every day. You will be harming yourself by not taking the medicines. And in future, you will have to take more medicines and the increased sugar levels will harm your body. So please follow your doctor's advice. Please understand that you will be able to work only if you are fit to work. So do not skip medicines because of work pressure or stress.

Depression medication may be the most advertised treatment for depression, but that doesn?t mean it is the most effective. Depression is not just about a chemical imbalance in the brain. Medication may help relieve some of the symptoms of moderate and severe depression, but it doesn?t cure the underlying problem, and it?s usually not a long-term solution. Antidepressant medications also come with side effects and safety concerns, and withdrawal can be very difficult. If you're considering whether antidepressant medication is right for you, learning all the facts can help you make an informed decision. If you are taking medication for depression, don?t ignore other treatments. Lifestyle changes and therapy not only help speed recovery from depression, but also provide skills to help prevent a recurrence. Consult a psychiatrist.

My son is quite slow in his reactions, I mean to say whenever I teach him his study materials he take a lot more time compared to other students. The amount of effort which he had to put even to do a simple problem is done by his classmates quite effortlessly. He is also quite slow in his day to day works like eating, bathing, playing and so on. He always seems to be lethargic and drooping. If there is any remedy for him in homeopathy or ayurved please advice.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Have you had a clinical assessment for him yet? it will help to rule out any underlying developmental delays or psychological reasons for slowness, lethargy and droopiness. If reports are normal, then I suggest that you treat your child as an individual and unique in himself. Don't compare him with his friends because you will hurt his self confidence and self esteem. Recognise his effforts and praise him for it. Slowly encourage him to do better but if that is his level, then so be it. Try to find out his other strengths because everyone is intelligent in one or the other area of spatial, body kinesthetic, music, language, logic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalist. If you can figure this one out and hone his skills in this area and encourage it then he will still make a name and earn a good living for himself.
