I am 30 years old. I just want to know how much minimum sleeping is required for being healthy. As I am working professional and I also need time for my self study. I am not able to manage time for both. Please provide if anything can be done to increase concentration in less sleep hrs also. Thanks.

Basically 7-8 hours of total daily sleep is enough. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.

Hi lybrate-user, 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. Daily for 15 minutes. Consult a psychologist for counseling.

My memorising power is not very good, what do you want to suggest me for increase my memorising power?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 sugar and junk food.

Why we can't divert our mind in anything else why we just things only one thing continuously.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
The simple fact is that your intense intention to divert your attention itself serves as a reminder to think about it. so don't try to forcefully divert your thoughts. instead involve in some physical activities associated with your areas of interest. socialize more. if you still find it difficult to get over the problem there is also a possibility that you are having obsessive compulsive disorder with predominant repeated thoughts. so consult a psychologist

Dear , don' t worry. If your doctor said that there is nothing to worry, that could be it. Worrying and stress can worsen physical symptoms but there may not be any medical / scientific base. These type of mental diseases are called psycho-somatic diseases. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc.

Dear sir / madam, 1. A 51 year old single introvert man. First time fall in love at the age of 48 with a married woman with a child. And he married that woman secretly, not in front the society. But after one year when the relationship came in front the society, as he lost his image he became totally silent and disturb. He donot try to contact that woman. But he was anxious to know about her whereabouts. 2. He is a man who talks with people very calmly and only few words. He is a man of few words. He is very careless about his daily needs. 3. He is very punctual about his work, and too much determined to his goal. 4. He has no good relationship with his other relatives. He doesn't take any bodies help, and too much introvert person. 5. His behaviour heart's people those who love him. But he is careless about it. If somebody ask him any personal questions he becomes totally silent. And avoids him. 6. This person is having a small ngo which is not running in a good position and he is trying his level best for its improvement. But he is careless about the relationship. 7. When from the woman side her relatives asked about there relationship, he said 90% was done all by the woman and he is responsible only 10%. But as he loves her child very much, so he doesn't want to cut the relationship. He blames the woman for everything in front her relative. 8. When that woman asked the man what did he said, are everything true, he became ashamed and speechless. She did not informed anybody about there secret marriage. And from that day that man became totally silent. But he is trying his level best for the improvement of his organization. 9. One or two friends he was having with whom previously he talk about the relationship, but now he totally stop talking on this topic. 10. He do not respond to phone calls, and remain silent. 11. He is too much involved with the child of that woman. 12. Now when that woman get frustrated with the relationship and ask him that she wants to cut the relationship, from all the side he begin to cry, or do something miserable. 13. He doesn't want to cut the total relationship and he doesn't want to grant the relationship also. 14. When the woman plea let me know clearly what do you want so that I can set my mind and live my life, he doesn't says anything just silent and acts as if the woman is not keeping her promise which they took while they married secretly. 15. Whenever he gets stressed this man go out of his home open. Three times he had done this before and after one or two days he returned home again. Without saying anybody anything. Last time police was informed. 16. He was in treatment for 5 to 6 years of nerve problem, as his left hand shakes slightly. But now his hand shakes more frequently. Before one year for this problem he went to the psychiatrist and the doctor said he is having no nerve problem, he is suffering from heavy depression. And he needs proper treatment. But after three times he stopped going to the doctor, now sometime he take the medicine of depression and sometimes not. 17. He always go to the doctor with that lady, but now as there the relationship is not present might be he is not ready to go to the doctor. Now please say me doctor what type of character is this man. Does he is really suffering from depression? what should the woman do? what is going to happen with this person if the woman leave him? does the man still loves that woman? or how should the woman tolerate his behaviour, one day he seems too good and within the next hour he might be treble. But he is doing his office, doing all the work of his organization. But not atall caring about the relationship, but when the woman wants to end the relationship, he behave madly. Please answer me and advice me what should the woman do? still the woman loves that man a lot. I am that unfortunate woman. And he is not ready to marry to any other woman also. He is very careless about his life also. But very particular about his organization.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Having read all your points, I feel he must come to a psychiatrist and also a psychologist. If there is no other problem both can enter marriage openly and live as husband and wife.

I m very aggressive nd goes annoyed on every second moment. I m unable to control my anger.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If this has been a pattern for a long time I suggest that you meet with a counselor and with your parents. Your parents will be able to throw some light on where this anger is likely to come from. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

Psychiatric medicines should be taken under doctor supervision - always. There can be side-effects that your doctor can monitor. If you visit nearest patanjali kendra, they can give some brin tonics to strengthen brain power and flush out toxic effects of allopathic medicines. But, what is most effective and a must is - you practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. It is excellent to drive depression, negative thinking out of your system. Not necessary, you have to be present in front of your tv at 5 am. Begin by switching on your tv just whatever time you get up and start practicing as being taught. Gradually when you regulate your sleeping time, you will be able to get up next morning at 5 and will be able to do complete workout. Best of luck for good health and happiness.

Hi, it can be a phobia. A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation the affected person will go to great lengths to avoid, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - arnica 30/ 3 times a day daily for a month, revert.

Dear Lybrate user It's important that along with medicines your brother must take some help from Psychologist. One on one sessions are required. Also try making some lifestyle changes like early morning walk/jogging or Yoga. Trying engage in some hobby. You both brothers can spend some brother time watching movie together or going to some trip together. Hope these solutions will help. Take care.
