Dear if you are doing workout excessively then please stop doing this just concentrate on your diet increase amount of proteins in your diet like you can take paneer, soya bean and fruits and vegetables to increase fibre content in your diet and just do workout for only 20 to 30 minutes per day. Drink lot of fruits liquids.

Hello Sir/Ma'am, I don't know what is wrong with me. I think very abjectly of myself, lock myself up and cry very often. I have been through physical harassment and betrayal in relationship and all of these experience make me realize i am one unlucky and useless soul alive.

My husband always in aggressive mood always possessive and don't lyk my praises and always says to me that I have a depression problem. Please tell me what can I do.

If your husband was a doctor, I would have said your need some treatment. But if he is trying to scare you and blame your behavior by throwing diagnoses around, it must not be allowed to work. If you are indeed doubtful, then you can meet with a counselor to know, if his accusations are true. But if he harasses you like this then it is possible that you could get depressed because of it. Now if you let him do that, then that will be an unfortunate neglect on your part. You must stand up for yourself and be counted. You should both go for marital counseling and sort out your differences and find out what is his insecurity. Are you making him insecure or is he suffering from this problem apart from you? if it is the former then you need to work on that. If it is the latter, then he has much to work on. If he is not willing to come for therapy, you go at least and learn how to cope and deal with this situation. Sometimes when he sees you working on your issues he may feel encouraged to come and then you will have the best situation for marital counseling. But do not be passive and take all this nonsense. This can lead to a grossly mismanaged relationship in the long run because you failed to take prompt action.

Dear lybrate-user, Riscon is Risperidone. It is not available as 5 mg tablet. Of course riscon increases weight. You need to do dieting and exercise to avoid weight gain. Just stopping riscon alone may not reduce your weight to 47 kg. Consult a dietician. If doctor has adviced to stop those tablets, prepare yourself for a relapse and restart the tablets.

I am a 18 year old student. I am studying in class 12th with science. My problem is I cannot concentrate on my studies and I even cannot memorize them for long time. Suggest me diet and exercise.

Hello, I can suggest you few really simple to do tricks which can help you study better. 1. Sleep at least 7 consecutive hours at night 2. Do 30 minutes of rope skipping or brisk walking daily 3. Do at least 15 minutes of pranayama or meditation daily 4. Avoid smoking, alcohol & spicy foods at night 5. Study in this format, 30 minutes study followed by 10 minutes break in which you have to walk around or do stationary cycling. Apply these tricks for next 10 days & get back to me for next action plan. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly.
