Hlo sir next month my exam I want to study in night night but I cannot concentration on my study and I get bore very easily I want to take sleep how I can reduce my habits.

it is always advisable to not change your schedule for your exams. A minimum of 7 hours of sleep is essential for the brain to retain and recall anything you have read. The best time to study Is during the day time, so just relax , study as much as you can during the day and remember that proper sleep is as important as studying itself

Do you know why some people accomplish more and generally are much happier in their lives?

The field of positive psychology explains this. Research says, one of the signature strengths that such people have is" gratitude. Gratitude makes them take better care of themselves physically and mentally. It also makes people engage in more proactive and healthy way. It promotes the motivation for exercise, healthy diet and willingness to wriggle out of any negative situations in life. It helps boost your immune system. Since it makes you more optimistic and alert, you cope better with stress and feel healthier.

How to have an attitude of gratitude?

1) be mindful of what you have - being thankful for very small things actually bring a great amount of joy. Have gratitude for small things like sunlight, rain, flowers, a cup of tea, a caring spouse, a child's laughter. It gives us the resilience to cope with tougher situations.

2) keep a gratitude journal - every night before going to bed, write down" what was the best thing that happened to you that day. It fosters better sleep and a sense of well being and satisfaction.

3) reframe challenging situations - it's not the situation but our perception of the situation that makes it challenging. You can reframe your reactions and respond by saying that" I may have a very demanding boss, but I have become more organized, patient. It will help you to attend to your work and be cheerful.

4) practice saying thank you - it's very simple. When you buy a bus ticket, just smile and say'thank you. Feel the first raindrops on your face and smile in gratitude for all the life it brings.

5) focus your attention outwards - according to emmons, a us psychology professor, people who are more aware of the positives in their lives tend to focus their attention outside of themselves. They feel complete, satisfied and fulfilled in their lives and are capable of helping the less fortunate ones.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I am suffering from anxiety [ restlessness] and claustrophobia kindly advice me treatment.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yours is a fear related condition. You are exaggerating the stimulus e. G. Of closed places. There is nothing wrong with closed places but your fear is so much that you make enclosures frightful. The bottom line is with fear. You may not have developed sufficient attitude to fear and therefore no tools to tackle it properly. The foundation could have been laid in early childhood or through some reprimands that may have frozen you to the point of avoiding fear. This you can do only for some time. It will later show its ugly head and take over your being. Please seek counseling and deal with these deep rooted fears and you will see great changes soon. If that fails, the counselor will refer you to a doctor who will recommend medication. You must however continue counseling and cooperate with both therapies to be successful in the long run.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Everyday I am waking up in the morning or at dawn when suddenly I get awake with itchiness inside nose, sneezing,runny nose, and watery eyes. It happens mostly when I get awake late at night. If I use nasivion spray and take antihistamine (sinarest/Flucold) at its onset, it goes away. But again it happens next morning. Is it rhinitis and what over the counter drug will be good? Is it good to buy a nasal spray with corticosteroid in it?

Hi lybrate-user you have not given the details of why you have stopped interacting with your parents or why you have aversion towards marriage. But the way you have described your problem suggest that you may be in the initial stage of obsessive compulsive disorder. So better meet a clinical psychologist in your vicinity at the earliest to find solutions to your problems.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Your brain cells are never destroyed throughout life. That means no data is lost. That also means forgetting do not happen unless in the case of injury. I suggest educational counselling online. Take care.

What we as a society say and ask for from our children, can sometimes be drastically different from nature's plan. This is the age of the body's sexual growth and maturity. Along with the bodily changes, hormones cause changes in the brain too. Physical attraction, fantasies, sexual desire, etc are all natural and normal for teenagers. You cannot change how nature has designed your daughter. That said, you definitely need to guide her behavior. At this point in her life you cannot control her completely, nor can you leave her totally independent. My suggestion would be that you start accepting her for who she is. Accept that she likes someone or is attracted to someone. Then you guide her behavior respectfully, without being demanding and instructive. Confess your fears and anxieties. Ask her about her fears and apprehensions. Give suggestions based on your experience. It is ok to tell her what you expect, but gradually she is going to make more and more independent and self-centered choices. That's part of growing up. So be prepared. Teenagers take time to learn how to balance peer pressure and parental pressure. Don't push her to an extreme. If you treat your daughter with growing respect, you will be respected. If you become rigid and demanding, she will act stubbornly too.

My friend wants to leave smoking but he can't because every 3 hours he gets sweat n headache if he doesn't smoke. He also can't run more due to this n his breathing becomes fast. He haa tried all nicotine chewing gums but all in vain. What to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He will have these reactions as a sign of the withdrawal symptoms but that should not deter him from going ahead. Give him these suggestions: You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Because of anxiety disorder can I forget even small things also. I am 26 yrs old.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
You will have to address the cause of anxiety to help you overcome forgetfulness. A counsellor will be able to help you gently go through your life experiences and help you discover where anxiety is coming from. It's usually from the future and not feeling ready for some changes that it might bring along with it. Changes are inevitable in life and they will come. It is better to prepare ourselves and face them rather than avoiding them. A counsellor will help you to prepare yourself for the changes that you are expecting so that you feel more confident and in control of yourself. Having a realistic expectation from self and others will be essential. Looking for perfection in self and others also brings anxiety. Working for excellence is less stressful. You can contact me on private chat if you are interested.

I am having obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) how and where to treat it. Help me with this. Thanks.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Fear of contamination, excess hand washing, checking, anxiety and irritability are some of the features of OCD. It is advisable to go to a psychiatrist for proper assessment and diagnosis. They will be able to assess you properly and treat accordingly. Without going to a psychiatrist it is not possible to confirm the diagnosis or start any treatment. Consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. The best treatment is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy.
