How to get rid of depression caused by various reasons while doing research program, i.e., PhD. One of the reasons is that the research supervisor keeps stretching my duration unreasonably although I have done my part to meet the minimum requirement of receiving research degree (PhD.)? He knows that I am financially drained out:(

How do you think about your research and supervisor is need to be evaluated. Push yourself to do more rational and practical thinking. Everyone has his own way to work. Try to know more about the way your supervisor works what exactly he wants. Provide practical evidences to your thoughts related to your supervisor. You can also improve the way of your communication with him. It is the best way to connect with someone. You are going to learn a lot through this experience. Think positive sides of this experience rather than thinking of difficulties.

I have memory problem I quickly forgot most of thing that I study. I face lots of problem in exam time please solve my problem as soon as possible.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There can be only one possibility that you are suffering from this lack of memory i.e. you are under some form of stress. You need to meet with a counselor and deal with the stress for memory to happily return.Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

Dear, you should definitely quit. You should visit a pulmonologist / physician for detailed investigation. Let them decide what are those check ups you need. You will need de-addiction therapy and nicotine replacement therapy for some time to tackle nicotine craving. Take care.

Many people have problems with forgetfulness, even if they otherwise have a good memory. Absentmindedness is something that affects all of us at some time or another. Absentmindedness is the natural consequence of being able to do as much as we do. By being able to perform an activity without thinking about it we are able to perform many more tasks than we would otherwise. However, sometimes things we would like to remember get overlooked in the process. It isn't possible to eliminate forgetfulness or absentmindedness, but there are techniques and strategies that can help reduce how often it happens. With practice and memory trainingyou can develop the skills necessary to reduce absentmindedness. Have more sleep. Lack of sleep is one of the most common causes of forgetfulness. Hence, get plenty of sleep. For most people, at least seven or eight hours of sleep a day is needed. If you could not get more sleep at night, try taking a nap sometime during the day. Get more oxygen to the brain. Our brain uses oxygen whenever it performs its functions; the more tasks it does, the more oxygen it needs. Hence, for us to think better and remembers things clearly, we must get more oxygen to our brain. This is only possible if we increase our flow of blood through quitting smoking and regular fitness exercises like aerobics. Regular exercise would not only be beneficial for the memory but as well as for the entire wellness of the body. Experts believe that elderly people who exercise regularly have less chance of decreasing memory ability. Eat healthy foods. Diet is important in order for our mind to function effectively. One of the best types of food is fish because it contains omega 3 fatty acid, an essential oil that helps the brain to receive and retain information. Fresh vegetables and fruits should also be included in the diet. Check your iron level. Iron is known to boost our memory, and therefore, it must be maintained in a sufficient level. Eat foods with plenty of iron or take iron supplements regularly. Simplify. Absent-mindedness is oftentimes caused by having too much to remember. Our brain also has its satiation point and whatever we put in beyond its capacity only gets spilled out and wasted. Thus, simplify your life, remove unnecessary things, and select things to remember. Prioritize. An extension to the idea of simplification is prioritizing. When there are so many things to do, better plan out which must be or can be done first and which can come last. Also, eliminate some activities so all the things in your top priorities can be realized. Write things down. This might seem an easy step but this is seldom practiced by everyone. We tend to memorize things just in our heads, but unfortunately, we lose much information in the end. The best thing to do is to keep a notebook with you all the time. Write down your list of errands, things to buy or do, important dates, names of people you meet or places you have been to, or whatever things you can scribble that which can serve you well any given day. Once you write them down, you can forget them. When you need them, you can readily open your notebook and find the information you need. For short-term needs, you might also write on sticky notes and hang them on the most conspicuous places. Develop routines. Naturally, we remember the things that we habitually do. Thus, do the same things in the same order and at the same time every day. When you do tasks in the same order every day, you develop habits and do not have to think about them anymore. Develop techniques. You can devise some ways to compensate for your forgetfulness. Say using a recorder and making a list of things. If you are the type who usually misplaces keys, train yourself to place them in a single area, like a hook near a door. If you get confused over piles of documents and papers, learn to organize and make use of folders and cabinets. These are only some ways to develop ways to remember the things you tend to forget.

Stress is a by product of our modern life style. Due to chronic stress you have a negative chain of thought repeating in your mind. The wonderful new is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

I want to quit smoking. What to do? Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You have made a good decision and you will never regret it. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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.

I went in for love marriage against my family and now things are not working fine. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Love marriage, in addition to going against your family, have been bad portends for marriage success. I can say that since you have made your own bed, sleep in it. However, I think we need to be reasonable: if it appears that you have tried all means to resolve the differences and it has not worked, then discuss the best way to end this union amicably. But you both must meet with a marriage counselor and talk about the issues. If you are a boy, it may be easy for you but you need to think of your wife and whether this is fair to her. And if there are kids, you have a lot of thinking and responsible decisions to make. Whatever, it must be made with all of them in perspective. Do not do what is convenient for you alone that would be very selfish. If you are doing this because of family pressure or any other unacceptable reasons, your conscience will not leave you in peace – and you cannot run away from your conscience all of your life! My advice: be responsible, be respectful and be functional in whatever you do.

Dear lybrate user. There is nothing to be irritated about. For you also parents come first. Don't take these things as emotional. For everyone parents come first and they want to return their love they received during their childhood. There is nothing wrong in that and you should understand your husband in this matter. But, your husband should also understand your feelings and give you wholehearted support. I wish to give counseling to your husband in this matter if you and your husband are willing. Take care.

I cannot give up smoking. Please help me.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You must have been smoking for a long time and may have tried several times to quit it too. But you must keep trying until you succeed. This is the pattern with smoking: you fail and then you try again. One day you will succeed. You may feel that it is impossible to give up at your age or for having smoked so much. But that it not true. I know of so many people who have given up and were very high level smokers (even 40 cigarettes a day!). YOur heart condition does not even give you an option. You can follow some of these instructions to help you this time. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary.

In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

We have recently got married. He keeps comparing me to his ex-girlfriend, something I dont like. What should I do about it?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
It can be quite hurting if your partner keeps comparing you to his ex. It will take time for your relationship with him to bloom and gradually fade away old memories. Take time to understand each other and expectations from the marriage and each other. And you can also bring it to his notice that when he compares you feel hurt/worried/small/confused/angry etc. giving your reasons for feeling so. Do this without blaming him. But remember that he may not be able to understand you. In this situation it is important to take care of yourself and your feelings. Counselling helps you to overcome such situations and also develop skills of open communication.
