At least a 20- minutes-walk at a stretch regularly will help you relax your skeleto-muscular strain. If you want more effective and specific exercises for your problem, Yoga-suryanamaskar practice and yoga-pranayama practice with ocular physiotherapy will be the best if you learn and practice regularly in order to avoid a number of occupational hazards in future. I am able to teach you all these things, if you are interested you can approach me through video appointments.

I have a great addiction problem. I call this addiction because whenever I stop smoking, I feel tons of Anxiety, Depression rising in my head. I felt so scared and all. I feel numb, dead and I can not concentrate on anything. Like I was not here. I feel life so distance away. Also I was diagnosed with Body dysmorphic amd have strong obsessions surfacing when I stop smoking. This continuous smoking cycle I am in makes me less caring, and I am a ignorant one ignoring every my duties as a man. I live in a very lazy way. I used Nicotex for sometimes and it helped me alleviate craving for someday.

Keep your hands busy like squeezing balls, handling pencils, paper clips to satisfy the need for tactile stimulation 8. Brush your teeth-The just brushed clean feeling can motivate you to get rid of craving 9. Slowly drink a large cold glass of water to help the craving pass and keep you hydrated.

I am 40 years old. I have a very poor memory. I forget things I have kept, forget peoples names etc. All this is unintentional. What can I take and do to improve things. This is a kind of alarming situation. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are p[robably under some stress but not aware of it. Meet with a counselor and talk about your feelings. In the meantime please the following recommendations: 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. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. 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 sugar and junk food.

I am 26 year old. I am problem with little bit stammering. I am faced the problem while communicate to another people. Pls give some solutions to cope up this problem.

B. Sc. Speech and Hearing
Audiologist, Delhi
Stammering is a normal phenomenon it happens to all in different speaking situations. Stress, fear, anxiety increases it. But god gifted us with something called coping mechanism to cope with different life situations like fear, stress etc. If we lag to cope with different situations causes stammering and it eventually increases and becomes a problem. So you need to strengthen your coping mechanisms. Be confident. Speech therapy along with counselling sessions will be of greater help. Consult a good speech pathologist. Take care.

Mr. lybrate-user, please look for a sign of depression or any amount of stress in her. Adjusting to new situation takes time for few. She might be used to doing work slowly or not have done any work before marriage. She might have been a pampered kid where her mother wouldn't have allowed her to do any. Try to ask about it and understand her. Provide her the needed cushion and comfort. It will change her. Meet a nearby psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist to explore if she is not opening up with you.

Dear , why do you want to commit suicide? there are no problems in life which cannot be solved. Otherwise, because of the life given problems, almost half of the earth's population should commit suicide. See the fate of african country people. They are starving for everything and their suicide rate far too less than indian people. Wrong perception is the key. Please provide me more information and details. I will help you overcome any problems. Believe me. Take care.

Either due to chronic stress situation or because of something which might have happen in near past - that has caused an acute stress response in your mind. This state is causing a negative thinking and behavior pattern. The good news 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.

Medicine alone has very little role, you alone can correct the problems. There are many jobless youth in our country, do any job do not be afraid or feel shy to do even physical job. Take help from relatives, friends, approach any bank for loan to start small business. Eradicate negative thoughts, life is beautiful, god is taking your examination of tolerance, one window closed means another is opened, no lock without key, no problem without solution, have a faith in god, parents, relatives and friends.

I usually forget what I want to do, my memory is too weak and I am lack of presence of mind, please suggest what should I do?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Greetings of the day! There is no such thing as a" bad memory" and everyone can improve their memory, as long as you are not suffering from memory loss as a medical condition. If you want to improve your memory, there are a number of things you can do: 1. Pay attention – Give the item you know you will need to remember your full, undivided attention when you first input it into your brain. For example, listen to the introduction being given to you instead of worrying about what you need to say after, or take some time to think about everything you need to buy before you leave your home. 2. Repeat it– With everything you need to remember, use a minute or two to repeat it over and over in your mind. This works for locations, people, inanimate objects, exam notes…anything you want to stick and stay in your brain. 3. Create a routine – If you need to remember something on a continuous basis, like locking the door or feeding a pet, make it a routine. Create a schedule and do the task at the exact same time in the exact same way every time you need to do it. 4. Write it down – When you have too many things to remember at once, just write it down! The easiest way to “remember” is to make a concrete note. Use sticky notes, mobile device reminders, voice recordings, etc. 5. He foods you eat – and don't eat – play a crucial role in your memory. Fresh vegetables are essential, as are healthy fats and avoiding sugar and grain carbohydrates. You can find detailed information about nine foods for brainpower here. For instance, curry, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and walnuts contain antioxidants and other compounds that protect your brain health and may even stimulate the production of new brain cells. 6. Exercise encourages your brain to work at optimum capacity by stimulating nerve cells to multiply, strengthening their interconnections and protecting them from damage. 7. Get a good night sleep: Sleep is also known to enhance your memories and help you" practice" and improve your performance of challenging skills.

You sound like you could be depressed. The hand swelling needs to be investigated by a doctor but with regard to depression you may follow the recommendations mentioned below: At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

How can we increase our or focus our concentration on study. please give me a good advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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. 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.
