How to leave smoking?

If you want to stop smoking, you could try these: 1. Set a date for yourself to stop smoking. Or you can slowly reduce everyday or weekly. 2. Tell everyone that you are stopping smoking so that they can support you. 3. Remove ash trays, lighters and cigarettes from your room, car, office etc. 3. Take support of support groups like nicotine anonymous. 4. Use nicotine chewing gum or patch in the transition phase. 5. Be aware of your triggers and examine them. Counselling helps in this and explore stressful situations when you tend to smoke more. You would be able to manage the stress without having to depend on the cigarettes and finding your own strengths and resources within yourself and the environment to cope with stressful situations. 6. Congratulate yourself when you are able to successfully manage without smoking. 7. Expect days when you slip and smoke. Don't be hard on yourself. Examine your reasons for slipping and learn from them. Most people who quit successfully have tried it at least 3-4 times. If you have any questions, please click on private chat.

Move from your past if it gives you sadness only. You have to be optimistic for everything happens in your life if you want to be happy and want to distribute love and happiness to others. Be positive and keep yourself happy with the things which gives you light of happiness. Try to do yoga and meditation but in limited area it will gives you positivity and believe in your self. What you want from from life is very good it will surely help you. If you want any further help you can contact us.

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

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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.

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.

Its right decision.
Before using medicines for anxiety, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps,

I dont understand on what basis do you think that you look younger and what is the great difference in the looks between 25 and 31. Normally people feel happy when they look younger. However you seem to have a lot of concern about your looks, so get in touch with psychologist to sort it out

You are worrying unnecessarily. Urine color will be determined by the food you eat to a large extent. Yes, it is true that this may also mean concentrated substances that the body finds it necessary to discharge. So it is a good thing. If you find other symptoms of pain while urinating, fever, and any other medical signs, only then do you need to consult a doctor. I however, advise you to drink a lot of water every day to flush out toxins from your body more frequently. Then you will notice clear urine after the first discharge.

If you really love each other than go to her parents and talk about it. Surely they will understand your boths feeling. Without taking any negative thoughts just talk to them and you will find the way. Just don't take tension. Best luck.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

Dear Venkiteshwara. Welcome to lybrate. You have anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

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 is 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 sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.
