Inability to concentrate and easy irritability can be signs of underlying unresolved stress and anxiety. Increase in smoking and alcohol is also suggestive of inner stress. Try to find time fir relaxation. Do exercises like yoga and meditation for relaxation. In case you still find it difficult do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist. In case of any queries and assistance with treatment required, you may consult me online.

How to avoid Cigerate smoking. My Father is 46 years of old he smokes every day. I want to make him to stop smoking cigerate. Slowly how to make him to stop ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally you must send a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of his age and quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even harder. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But his 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 him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He 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. He 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 him 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 he has quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds.

Dear, the duty of your mind is to think. If you or your surrounds fail to provide worthy atmosphere and reasons for your mind, it will dwell into negative thinking. The trick is diversion. You should divert bad thinking towards useful and productive thinking. For that you need to show some resiliance. Motivation therapy and cognitive therapy are your answer. Please provide me more information and I will help you overcome this problem. Take care.

Your weight should be around 58-59 kg. At your age weakness generally occurs due to low haemoglobin although I am suggesting to consult any physician. But in the meanwhile try to follow my suggestions you will feel the improvement. Try to make your diet plan such that it should be energetic as well as rich in iron. Eat fruits and vegetables containing vitamin c such as guava, lemon,oranges as vitamin c help in absorption of iron. Eat palak, green vegetables, chiku include fibre containing food in your diet ,also include protein rich diet. Don't skip lunch or dinner. If you need my help regarding this you can contact me.

Everyone of us hold lots of irrational demands from ourselves and surroundings which makes us stressed out and depressed. Identify what you are thinking? If you think that she should pay attention to you, she should talk to you or she should respond to you, it's natural but understand that it's her choice what to do. Can you control other's thinking and behavior? No. You can only change your thinking and behavior. Your thinking is responsible for ur depression. Think practically and rationally and always accept the reality. Trust yourself and be ready to face reality.

If your symptoms are most just before your periods possibly you are suffering from pre-menstrual tension .I would advice you to join a Gym or do Yoga regularly specially second half of cycle. Also try using low dose oral contraceptive pills like femilon for the next 6 months and see if it helps.

I am a 25 year old girl having a good educational degree and a decent job. From my childhood I had been a shy and introvert kind of person (mostly due to the kind of environment I was growing up). As time passed, I became more and more socially awkward and failed to communicate and adjust with the outer world. In course of time, I started to build an imaginary world for myself where I could do everything which I couldn't do in reality. As a result I got cut up from the real world, did not make friends and now suffering from depression as I don't have any support system in my life who would understand me and listen to me. I am a very sensitive person but also highly ambitious. The only good thing I did in my life is to excel in academics. But now when I look back I feel empty. There is a large gap between the person I am in my real life and the person I am in my imaginary world. I want to achieve so much in my life but due to all these mess going in my head I am finding it difficult to focus on my career. Can anyone please help?

You need to build on self confidence by respecting yourself the way you are. Believe me you are a nice and honest appearing person as per your text. You need to open up and talk your heart out with an expert who can listen to your thoughts and feelings, understand you and then make you understand yourself. You need to find either some person around you or for better you can connect me directly face to face either in person or online/Skype. Trust yourself, You are just a little distance form quality and fulfilling life. Move on with self respect and connect me.

I have too much cold in winter days because of cold I have not to concentrate on my studies I am a student please contact me.

M.Sc - Psychology
Psychologist,
Hello lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Com I can understand your concerns. As you suffer from cold you find it hard to concentrate on studies. It's common to feel that way alternatively you can approach a holistic method of moving you up. Try to take preventive home remedies before winter season so that you are less affected. Also try to motivate yourself by doing small tasks one at a time as you are finding it difficult to focus on the whole. Also join some yoga and exercise classes as it will help to build strong immunity to fight with the viral attacks as well as motivate you to feel active. All the best.

Hello lybrate-user, loss of a close friendship can be quite painful& affect our daily functioning. It would be helpful if you are able to either patch things up with that friend or allow yourself to grieve that loss. You can appreciate the time you spent with the person & accept that things don't turn out happily every time. If you continue to have difficulty to function, it would be helpful to consult a psychologist who can help you to process your loss.
