I think you probably have low self esteem. May be you did not get enough appreciation from people around you. Please understand that we all are different from each other and we all are unique. Hence you are also unique and are as important as any other person in this world. Do not compare yourself with any other person. You are only 18 and this is the time in your life when you need to study a lot, learn new skills so that you can have a bright future. Make a list of your strengths (plus points), paste/hang it at a place where you can see it every day. Think about the things you want to improve upon, start working on them. Have a goal in life. Take advise from experienced people. Be in the company of friends who have good values and are positive. If possible talk to your school/college counsellor. Counselling will help you to relieve your stress and tensions. All the best.

This fear of death can be quite crippling if you tend to believe in it. Obviously you do. In other words you have a trust problem: trusting in life and in the developments in medicine and other huge benefits of modern science. Now this kind of fear has some basis from some traumatic experience from childhood. If you have already identified that it would help tremendously. The tendency to use right brain, which has a penchant for exaggerating things quite out of proportion, is your handicap. You must meet with a counselor and seriously study all the possible ways that you fear death and the hypochondriacally suggestive factors that you must be obsessing about. When you check these out with another person you trust, you can see your discrepancy in perception and belief in comparison, and perhaps that will help you to change the outlook. You need to have explicit faith in the therapist for this to be effective. Also you will need to examine if the fear about death is related to any particular aspect of your health and explore the measures you can take to stave off that possibility. This is a very important boosting action to take, and you will feel physically able and fit. I am referring to regular physical exercises especially of the aerobic kind; eating healthily, and stress management. But I think that the greatest benefit you can really experience is from the spiritual angle, if you have faith in god. If you have not explored this, you must. For this you must speak to a spiritual counselor or even a psycho spiritual one. Death is an eventuality and accepting that with good faith will really go a long way to love life, to live life to the fullest, and to enjoy every moment of existence as though there is no tomorrow. Everybody else is living life knowing that death will come to them someday but that it can be hastened by neglecting your lifestyle or abusing healthy living. The spiritual pursuit is the best bet among a lot of other measures too which are not possible to mention in this forum.

Fighting the Signs of Depression with Homeopathy

In this advanced ultra modern world most of us are leading a mechanical life in which they don’t have time to spend for their loved ones and family or even to share their problems and worries. It ultimately ends up with a serious psychological problem called as depression in which the person looks apparently worthless, pessimistic and even end up with suicidal thoughts.

Lack of interest in doing any activities, loss of appetite, insomnia, diminished emotional bonds, persistent sadness, poor concentration, guilty feeling and weight loss is the common symptom noted in depression. It not only affects the mental health it also affects a person’s physical health and sexual interest also.

Homeopathy is the ancient form of medicine which helps the person to relieve from depression in a very natural way without causing any side effects and even sedation.

  1. Aurum met is the commonly used homeopathic medicine for depression with suicidal thoughts
  2. Gelsemium and caladium is the best used medicine for depression caused due to impotency and excessive body temperature.
  3. Arsenicum album used to treat person with excessive worries and mood disturbances.
  4. Aurum metallicum is best used for person with symptoms like restlessness, feeling of worthlessness and suicidal thoughts.
  5. Causticum is used for person with depression after a loss of loved ones or an unbearable loss in financial state and grief.
  6. Ignatia amara is the best homeopathic medicine for sensitive persons who often and easily get mood disturbances.
  7. Lachesis muta, used to treat depression caused by suspicion, guilt feel and excessive jealous.
  8. Pulsatilla nigricans is used for treating person with sadness, and social withdrawal.

Homeopathy also insists on several natural ways that helps to relieve a person from signs of depression. Setting a routine work, physical exercises, meditation, healthy food habits and adequate sleep helps to get rid of depression in a better way. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

It seems that due to some recent trauma he is hurt and feeling low. At this age sometimes even a small thing could create deeper trauma and emotional turmoil. I would suggest to take him to a counselor or a psychologist. He needs to talk to someone who can understand his situation and reassure him about his future. You can also suggest him to try following things. If you both can team up and so these things together it will be easier for him. And of course if will benefit you as well. 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.

My friends boyfriend left her because she is not that beautiful according to him. And his family too did not accept her because of her beauty. She loved him so much but he still is confused sometimes he say he lives her sometime he shouts and say he do not. But after all this she have broken a lot .she feel that beauty is more important than her true feeling. She feel sad about her and her beauty. She have lost those feeling and she have even lost sexual feeling. She feel lonely and stressed when she think about it what should she do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' and that is very true. Some people find some people very beautiful whereas the same person may not appear so to others. so beauty is subjective but love is lasting and more important. If this guy does not love her because of her looks, then she is better off without him. She needs somebody who can accept her and love her for who she is. Now it appears that even the family does not accept her. So there is no point in her trying to convince or force anyone to accept her. There will be someone who will see her as the pearl of his eye if she is patient. Above all, it is her character that should be the final say in this matter. Let her focus on good character and let her leave all this to the natural process of chemistry that happens between two people meant for each other. So you can be there for her and console her but tell her to be patient. Her prince charming will come along for sure.

Im 20 year old I have memory problem. I can't concentrate on studies. What to do. Please help me.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. 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. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also. Wishing you very best,

I am 26 years old and I am suffering from depression and my mother is also. What should I do?
Clearly there is a genetic factor to consider. Both of you must seek the help of a counselor and if that person feels you need medication too, you will need to oblige. However, counseling must continue until the treatment is complete.Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

I can't control my brain and I forgot everything in same time. what could be the reason ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are too many to list out here but there are a few suggestions which I think will help you significantly. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

I am having a habit of chewing pan masala with tobacco. How to get rid of this habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Chewing pan is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral sub mucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the sub mucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get into regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred.
