Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You do love him but he don't love you. He wants to use you physically. Once you are sure about this, you should leave him aside and get going with your life. It is not an easy task. But you must take a decision and stick to it. I suggest online counseling. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. Mentat is an ayurvedic medicine. It improves mental concentration and alertness. The herbal remedy also reduces oxidative stress, which can cause mental fatigue. Therefore you can use it without side effects. Take care.

Dear , I think your concept of learning is wrong. Let me explain you. Human being brain is able to store anything it sees or learns. Storage of data is always taking place. The more you learn, the data will be kept in some cells which are readily accessible. Our brain never deletes any file. There is of course over writing. Your problem could be recollection. This recollection matter will be only visible in education. The initial things you need to grasp what you read is' interest' in the subject and interest in your life. You need to understand the importance of education, approach it with enthusiasm and passion. You should recall, how you approach a game. You will be able to understand better and effectively if your approach is positive, enthusiastic and passionate.'effective learning methods' should help you. You may post a private question to me and I am happy to help you in all the way I can. Take care.

Self-confident people are admired by others and inspire confidence in others. They face their fears head-on and tend to be risk takers. They know that no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the ability to get past them. Self-confident people tend to see their lives in a positive light even when things aren't going so well, and they are typically satisfied with and respect themselves. If you don't believe in yourself, how do you expect anybody else to? Try some of the tips listed below. Begin to practice them daily, beginning today. You might have to fake it at first and merely appear to be self-confident, but eventually you will begin to feel the foundation of self-confidence grow within you. 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.

What kind of homeopathy or ayurveda medicine should I take for get ride of depression can you help me plz.

What kind of homeopathy or ayurveda medicine should I take for get ride of depression can you help me plz.
Hi lybrate-user, First of I all you need to know what you exactly have Anxiety/depression or stress and if you have already diagnosed, I understand Depression makes it tough to function and enjoy life like you once did. Just getting through the day can be overwhelming. But no matter how hopeless you feel, you can get better. Learning about depression—and the many things you can do to help yourself—is the first step to overcoming the problem. As I always say medicines are not magical, they can't do magics but you can do. I suggest you to speak to a professional to overcome it will surely help. Meanwhile: Reach out to other people. Isolation fuels depression, so reach out to friends and loved ones, even if you feel like being alone or don’t want to be a burden to others. The simple act of talking to someone face to face about how you feel can be an enormous help. The person you talk to doesn’t have to be able to fix you. He or she just needs to be a good listener—someone who’ll listen attentively without being distracted or judging you. Get moving. When you’re depressed, just getting out of bed can seem daunting, let alone exercising. Eat a mood boosting diet. Reduce your intake of caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and refined carbs. And increase Omega-3 fatty acids. Find ways to engage again with the world. Spend some time in nature, care for a pet, volunteer, pick up a hobby you used to enjoy (or take up a new one). You won’t feel like it at first, but as you participate in the world again, you will start to feel better. If support from family and friends and positive lifestyle changes aren’t enough, find a therapist who can help you heal. Therapy can help you understand your depression and motivate you to take the action necessary to prevent it from coming back. Mr. Deepak there is a proper treatment plan where you get Counselling and Therapy and tips to follow. That will be very helpful. You can check out on my profile or feel free to contact me for further query. All the best :)

Your sleep patterns are not healthy for you. Addiction to social media is also a debilitating condition. But your desire to dominate other people is what is called the power struggle: in every situation of two or more people power struggles will go on and that it not harmful unless you take it too far. This world is a 'dog-eat-dog world' and there is a lot of competition and we must be prepared for the worst. So if you want to dominate others do it by equipping yourself well. Here are several things you can do to further that goal: study well, speak well, be physically and emotionally fit, dress well, become well-groomed, be presentable, have good habits, conduct yourself well; do a personality development course, attend good conversational skills course, join the Toastmasters Club, do a personal grooming course, practise elocution etc. You must eat well, sleep well, and do regular exercise. These may all appear unnatural to you but these are things that everybody wants to and wishes to do to get on in life. Absolutely not harm in it at all.

Mr. lybrate-user you are just 24 years. In my opinion I feel you have few more years to enjoy yourself, be secured for a job and get married. You have time and age on your side to be not worried about all these immediately. And regarding financial stabilisation it is tough to achieve because human mind is never settled in that. So my advice is to be happy and enjoy life at this moment.

Dear user. I can understand. It is not always a one way affair. You have your justification for what you do and your husband will have his own justification and in most of the cases, bot the justifications will be tenable from a nutral point of view. The best option is to understand each others position in the family. A good family counseling session can ease most of the problems. Take care.

Do regular exercises along with balanced diet. Drink a cup of warm milk daily night. Take bhrahmi vati and ashwaganda vati 2 tabs twice in a day after meals. Applying coconut oil on soles while going to bed will bring sound sleep every day.

Dear questioner, my advice will be to taper off the drugs gradually in consultation with your psychiatrist. It will need some doing as withdrawal and physical and psychological dependence on them. I hold the view that drugs (anti-depressants/anti convulsants) are chemicals and most of its exact mechanism still unknown to the experts as well. They are like necessary evils, they will not cure you, but act as palliatives which actually with their hosts of physical and mental adverse effects will worsen esp lithium. Bipolar disorder has a strong genetic component and predisposition to it. My advice would be to enjoy the high or hyperactive state and not try to see it as apart of disease. (only avoidance of physical harm to be seen) and in the low or depression period, not fight the period, trying to get over with it. This struggle intensifies the depression we all have highs and lows, not with the same intensity though and it is due to expectation or an ideal which we are desperate to chase. How should one be. Is the one doing the mischief. Since and till we are chasing happiness, so long we will be unhappy. This is my genuine view which is backed by strong conviction. It is difficult. But think over it. Do what you feel like. Medicines /some medicines or no medicines. But enjoy your highs as much as you can and let your physician always be in the loop if you wish to taper the medicines. Take care.

Sex change as medical procedure.

Decreased concentration can be a symptom of depression or anxiety. Distractions like mobile phones, computers can also cause decreased concentration. Eat well, sleep on time, maintain a regular day structure, meditation, breathing exercises, focus on the task, all these will improve concentration.
