Hi, practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them.  Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing.  Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult me for discussing the nature of problem in detail.

I panic and worry over small situation that leads to instead sweating, headache and constipation. Any solution?

I panic and worry over small situation that leads to instead sweating, headache and constipation. Any solution?
Good Morning ~ Worrying about small situations and unusually being worried in situations that others would usually not worry about or being worried about being worried are all signs of treatable anxiety. If that is the case then it can manifest in physical symptoms as well and this may lead to headache and constipation. Medications are useful and you will benefit from visiting with a psychiatrist as soon as possible.

in general, most cases of fatigue \weakness \ laziness may be attributed to three areas: lifestyle factors, medical conditions or psychological problems. A thorough assessment is needed in all three factors to get to the actual cause of weakness. Your diet and day to day life style also is very crucial for right diagnosis I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications.

How to forget a girl whom I loved a lot in the world but after the breakup of one year not able to get rid of her thoughts?

Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life.

Hello Generally these types of anxiety and depression occurs due to lack of confidence. To develops your confidence one thing always remember whatever you knows that right and say that confidently without hesitation. You don't think about others thought. You discuss those topics that you knows well. Slowly slowly you have got your confidence.

I am very depressed and want to kill myself. I completely lost my confidence and interest in life. I am facing some familyproblemsfrom last 2 months and one month ago I had given birth to a baby boy but still I am loosing myself. I had become very quite and fearful. I feel scared to share my thoughts and feelings to anyone as no one could try to understand me. I love my husband very much and I want to live with him, only he could give me hope to live now but I can't live with his family now, I feel very frightened with them but I can't share this with my husband. What should I do now. I couldn't sleep, no interest in eating oranything else. I feel senseless. I had totalychanged. I only need to live with my husband or I wouldn't save myself. A very strong urge comes inside me to kill myself. What should I do now. Could anybody help me or I would die.

Hello lybrate-user, killing oneself is not the solution to the problems of life. When a woman is pregnant and for about 6-9 months after delivery she has certain hormones in her body which make her emotionally weaker. These hormones are also necesarry for the development of the baby. I can assure you you will not feel as fearful in 3 month's time. Try to distract yourself whenever you get bad thoughts. Don't give up. Your condition will improve and your baby will bring you a lot of happiness. Be hopeful. Don't worry. This tough phase will pass.

Hi, I'm Male 26 and I have been experiencing depression and anxiety since 5 months. I had a trauma in my life which I could not get out of my head. It was related to my career. I lost my job in Nov 2017 due to demoralization and that put me into shock because I did not have any backup at that point of time. I got so depressed and I even had suicide tendencies. I had serious health issues that time which included heart palpitation, vomiting, headache, anxiety, dizziness etc. I did not consult any Doctor for the same as I myself took control over all the problems. I used to get a feeling of being in such a rush like the world is gonna end the very next day. I was running after my career because I had lots of responsibilities on my shoulders. I'm engaged and I used to think about that a lot. I have gotten a new job now and I'm satisfied with it but I still get the weird feeling. I feel so low, I am unable to focus on things properly, I was the person who used to talk to people so much but now I don't feel like talking to them. I sometimes fumble while speaking. Please suggest what needs to be done to get it right. Will really much appreciate that. Thanks.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. What you are describing seems to be a partially remitted form of a psychological condition. Many a time, these partially remitted forms remit completely on their own or in many, they tend to become chronic. The latter can get problematic. Therefore, a psychiatric evaluation is certainly in order. I am quite confident that your previous, normal personality will be restored with appropriate intervention. Take care!

Sir, too much involvement in professional work should be reduced. What ever problems in the work place should be discussed. Spend more time at home go for week end outings. Do yoga, breathing exercises, meditation. Eat lot of vegetables and fruits. Go for walks together. See erotic movies together. Spend lot of time with wife before sex. Foreplay should be at least for 1/2 hour. Then have sex good luck.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

Sex addiction, means you repeatedly participate in sexual activity that causes detrimental effects to your relationships, job, and/or self esteem. Some people are more susceptible to sex additions. So firstly, identify if you actually have addiction. The following signs indicate a possible sex addiction: Seeking extramarital affairs Using compulsive sexual behavior as an escape from loneliness, depression, anxiety or stress Thinking about sex to the exclusion of other interests and occupations Using pornography excessively Masturbating frequently, especially in inappropriate situations such as while at work Having sex with prostitutes Sexually harassing other people Having unprotected sex with strangers that could lead to sexually transmitted diseases (STD)s. If you are unsure whether you have an STD, get tested right away. If you are in a relationship, your partner should get tested as well. Now what you have to do is: Get rid of your trigger items. If you are surrounded by items that remind you of sex, it will be harder to quit. Dispose of or recycle pornographic magazines, pictures, videos, and anything else that puts you at risk of backsliding. Delete porn from your computer, and clear your history of sites you formerly visited. Consider installing software that blocks pornography sites Stay away from people and places that trigger addictive behavior.Avoid the places where you have sought harmful sexual encounters in the past. Stay away from red light districts and do not visit sex shops. If your friends want to go out in these areas, ask them to go somewhere else with you. Certain situations might trigger addictive behavior. For example, maybe you have one-night stands when you travel for work. Figure out a way to prevent yourself from doing this. Travel with a colleague or try to stay with a platonic friend instead of alone at a hotel. Remove contact information of sexual partners. Delete numbers and names of former sexual partners from your phone, computer, and any other devices. Having a list of people willing to have sex could be tempting when you crave sex. Notify regular partners that you will no longer be seeking relations with them. Be sensitive to their feelings but do not waver in your commitment to stop. You of course can retain the information of your committed partner or spouse. Replace addictive sex with healthy energy outlets. When you stop doing addictive sexual activities, you might have excess energy. Try healthy activities like exercising or other forms of recreation. If one activity is not stimulating enough, try something else. Keep searching for ways to keep yourself occupied. Here are a few ideas: Write daily in your journal. Take music lessons or join a choir or band. Take an art class or draw, paint, or sculpt at home. Take up a new hobby that requires physical exertion, such as woodworking. Try stress reduction activities like yoga or tai chi. Do activities that get your heart racing like caving or parachuting. Seek counseling if you want.

Hello lybrate-user, if cricket is your passion and you feel happy playing and practising cricket then you shouldn't worry about anything. Immerse yourself in your passion, enjoy it and master it. You will experience a bliss in this process. Success, happiness, prosperity and friends will always be your partners if you are sincere about what you do. Don't worry about having or losing friends, those who value you will find a way to stay in touch and those you value, you'll find a way to communicate with them as and when you can. Take it easy. Good luck!

Yes lybrate-user, you are suffering from phobic anxiety. It is panic attack which you translate it as nearing heart attack. Panic is panic it never will turn into heart attack you must have noticed panic attack last for few minutes and then subsides. Anxiety is fear. It's the activation of the fight or flight system, which is the system that your body uses to react to fear responses. Anxiety disorders occur because the body is activating that response when no danger is present. But in addition to being fear, anxiety also causes other fears. That's one of the reasons that anxiety can be hard to treat without help. One of the fears it causes is a fear of cardiovascular problems (poor heart health), and often those fears end up contributing to further anxiety. It would be disingenuous to say you do not have a heart condition, because there is no way to know until you talk to your doctor. But let's assume that you're like most people - your doctor is going to tell you that nothing is wrong with your heart. So then why are these cardiovascular problems occurring? the answer is likely to be hyperventilation. Hyperventilation is also known as" over-breathing, and contrary to popular belief, it's not caused by getting too little air. It's actually caused by breathing out too much carbon dioxide. Your body needs the right balance of carbon dioxide to function. When you breathe too quickly (or breathe in more oxygen than your body needs), your cells are drained of their carbon dioxide and your entire body is forced to work much harder in order to function. Your blood vessels constrict, your brain gets less oxygen, and your heart has to beat extra fast because your blood is slowing down. This what causes the vast majority of the symptoms of a panic attack. And what makes it worse is that hyperventilation makes it feel like you're not getting enough oxygen, even though the reality is that you've taken in too much. Because of that feeling, most people continue to hyperventilate even more in order to try to get a" full breath" only to hyperventilate even further and experience a worsening of the symptoms. When you combine these symptoms with anxiety, you get a constant feeling that your heart is in poor health. The first thing you need to do is practice better breathing. Since hyperventilation causes most of the symptoms, it's important to start breathing more efficiently. Take slow, controlled breaths, and fight the urge to yawn or expand your chest. The moment you start to feel as though a panic attack is coming on, try the following: breathe in slowly, taking at least 5 seconds. Hold for two seconds. Breathe out as though whistling for 7 seconds. Never rush the air out of your body, and try to give yourself time to regain your carbon dioxide level. Don't hold your breath for too long though since holding your breath can cause similar symptoms and may exacerbate your anxiety. Controlling your breathing won't stop your panic attacks, but they should reduce the severity, and for many that alone can help reduce the frequency of panic attacks in the future. Once you've controlled your breathing it's time to combat your overall anxiety, which in turn will decrease your cardiovascular health fears. All the best consult a psychologist for same. All the best.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.
