Dear lybrate-user, your brain is creative but you do not have enough experience in the basic concept and do not have the required education. To have the experience, it takes time. Once you have the experience and the required knowledge, you will be able to implement your ideas. Don't worry. Don't get frustrated, instead, gain as much knowledge as possible. Take care.

I was in a relation for last 4 years. But last year we broke up and now I am totally disturbed as I cannot move on in life. Always she is in my mind and I cannot concentrate on my career and sometimes I feel to commit suicide. Please suggest what should I do in such condition.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand what you are going through. Remember, its a temporary phase we all go through such stages like break up and we all survive. Committing suicide for someone who is no more there in your life will not serve any purpose anyway its the mot absurd act. Build your career and live for your parents, lot of girls will enter your life do not waste time on past.

Hi, you are weak you should take proper diet you take 5 meals in a day in frequent intervals and don't skip breakfast. Include fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Include protein rich food in your diet. Take healthy and heavy breakfast. You need to go for meditation to reduce your stress and to build up your stamina as well to feel strong from within.

My husband looks at all the girls. But I do not mind. But before someday he told me he has some feel towards my sister even my sister is a mother of 2 child. Recently I noted he is looking at my sister I asked to him, he is saying he is feeling like want to see my sister in bad thought. I feel so problematic I feel like want to leave my husband. Is there any solution?

Relax dear lybrate-user. Your case is the classic example of our deteriorating cultural values. I mean it is not uncommon during the past few decades in our country. It seems to me that you are a possesive wife, nothing wrong in it if he is also a possessive husband. If he sees his'feeling' toward your sister is wrong and needs you to help forget her, then you should accept him and find ways to help him. On the contrary, if he tries to rationalize his behaviour, you can rethink about the relationship" divorce the ownership, not the ownerdom" I mean you can get out of this problem by emotionally detaching yourself from him. Because your children need a father, you need a huband (as a label) for some social issues. In other words, use your car for transportation but do not identify yourself (as a proud owner) with it. You can stop thinking and worrying about him by distracting youself engaging in child-rearing and learning something new to earn money etc. You can contact me by phone through lybrate if you need further guidance.

Addiction is nothing but a creation of your mind and strong headed persons overcome from this fast as compared to weak minded people------------it show that you are weak minded to overcome this habit--------------------i do not ask you to stop this habit but try to limit this habit but try to make abalance between your studies and this game------------------make a routine and try to complete your task of studies first and then move towards the game-------------the below given will help you control your mind-------------consult me after 15 days--------------- bramari pranayam or bee breath -------------------------------1. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. ---------------------------------2. Place your thumbs in your ears, your index fingers above your eyebrows, and your remaining along the sides of your nose. Keep each pinky finger near a nostril.------------------------------------- 3. Breath in deeply through the nose. First, feel the diaphragm move down, allowing the lungs to expand and forcing the abdomen out; then feel your chest expand with your collar bones rising last.------------------------------4. Use your pinkies to partially close each nostril. Keep your lungs filled.------------------------------------5. Breathe out through the nose while humming. Note that the humming sound should originate in your throat, not as a result of your partially-blocked nostrils.------------------------------------- 6. Repeat twenty times. Starting from 5 times.

My age age is 22. I have problem of stammering. So help me to came out this problem.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

Lybrate-user, you should not lose heart in not able to clear your ca exams. Failures are always stepping stone to success. You have to either work doubly hard for next attempt or look at alternative career/ degree options in consultation with family or friends as you feel convinced. Life may have its up and downs but take it in stride and work harder.

My memory power is getting down day by day. I don't know what is happening. Most of the time my mood swings, I am depressed and stressed. I am getting over excited or being calm. I am not able to maintain balance between them. Can you say me the better ways to improve concentration and memory.

General Physician,
YOu may have depressive illness and medication is needed. Generally 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 have stress all time. What can I do for this? I don't suffer from this any more.
*When Your Stress Goes Flying Out the Window* Stress is so all-pervading in this material world that everyone is tortured by it. Stress takes many forms. We are stressed by health problems, financial problems, interpersonal problems and many more. The solution for all varieties of stress is to understand that its underlying cause is bodily consciousness, the false identification of the self with the body. As soon as one realizes that he is not his body and that his real happiness is based on harmonizing his consciousness with the supreme consciousness, and he then learns the art of doing this, his stress goes flying out the window to be replaced with profoundly sweet transcendental bliss. - courtesy of Sda.

I am 20 weeks pregnant, nowadays due to some family issues I am taking so much stress and I am crying to much. My husband don't understand my feelings. I am in problem. I love him so much. But at this stage when I need him most he is saying that go and live at your home. I can't live without him. Sometimes I overreact on some things. But in a minute or two I apologize but he never forgive me. He stretched every issue so big. From last two days we're not talking to each other. I am dying at every moment. I don't want to harm my baby. Please help me what should I do.

There are two views causing your problem. One is, of course, generally pregnant women expect more love&affection and personal support from their husband. You are saying that only in recent days you have been experiencing so much stress. It means that you had been living well in recent past. The problem, in my view is, your expectation has become more than ever before, and your husband's offering is normal/usual. This imbalance may cause friction between you. The other view is, during pregnancy there occur a lot of biochemical changes in the body which affect our normal physiological as well as psychological functioning which include mood swings, generalized anxiety about the labor/delivery (fear or over expectation of the outcome). These conditions may cause you behave so or exaggerate your stress levels. I hope, by changing your behavior, i. E. Understanding and reducing your expectations to a level tolerable by your husband, will work well. Above all, the birth of your baby may change the entire situation upside down. Let's hope for the best.
