The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

How To Manage Exam Stress

Dear students the following strategies can help you to overcome exam related stress:-
1:- plan your study time:- plan your studying with regularly scheduled study sessions about 45 minutes long separated by 5-10 minutes breaks.
2:- try to maintain a healthy lifestyle:- eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, do some physical exercise regularly.
3:- keep things in perspective:- the exam might seems like the most crucial things right now but in the perspective of your whole life, they are only a small part of your life.
4:- take steps to overcome problems:- if you find you don't understand some of your course material try to take help from your teacher or classmate.
5:- don't keep things botteled up:- confiding in someone you trust and who will be supportive is a great way to alleviate stress and worry.
6:- believe in yourself:- the most important thing is always think positive and believe in yourself. If you prepare for the exam properly you should do fine, there is no need to worry. Just do your best. All the best.

Instead of feeling the void, feel the presence of the departed through the memories associated with him/her. If you are feeling to keep to yourself, stay that ways, do not try to seek an opposite state. This will eventually fade away.

Dear , don' t worry. If your doctor said that there is nothing to worry, that could be it. Worrying and stress can worsen physical symptoms but there may not be any medical / scientific base. These type of mental diseases are called psycho-somatic diseases. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc.

Hi, dark circles might persist due to hereditary also. If any of your parents have it then you are bound to get them. Drink lots of water as dehydration also causes dark circles. If you have tried everything to get rid of them then start using concealer to hide them if you are getting frustrated. Otherwise accept them and put your energy in some positive activities.

I'm not able to quit smoking. Can you please tell me the best and easy way to quit smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath, Murshidabad
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.
