Hello, I am 22 years old and now I am facing with a problem where when I read something or remember something I tend to forget it or can't clearly remember it. The brain is like in a pause state where how much ever I feed it, it takes least or responds less. To clarify more No problem other than this which would have led this. Before 2years I used to be quick grasper but now need to read many a times still everything won't be recalled! is it biological change or psychological change? Any solution for it?

It can be both, biological and psychological. At 21 years you are into professional course where the type of study is different from what u did till 12th, this requires some witful techniques to learn things. Psychological, because at 21 years, you might have a lot of stressful factors around you which can affect your levels of concentration and attention span, if that is the cause, then consult me soon.

Anxiety - Bust It With The Help Of These Tips!

Anxiety - Bust It With The Help Of These Tips!

Being constantly anxious impairs work performance and creates havoc in relationships. The best way to deal with it to accept that it is only a temporary phase which everyone faces. If you keep worrying and try to fight it, you will become even more anxious and your health will become even worse.

It is therefore important that you acknowledge it, first of all and try to cope with it. Controlling anxiety isn't a gigantic task. You can feel at ease with by doing these simple things:

  1. Self-soothing techniques: There are many physiological things for you to do as well which will allow you to relieve anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a very good way to achieve this. Sometimes reassuring yourself is more valuable than you think. Practice saying comforting things to yourself and the stress and anxiety will automatically reduce. Muscle relaxation is yet another method which will allow you to decrease your anxiety.
  2. Deep breathing: A 5-minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth.
  3. Meditation: Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.
  4. Get adequate sleep: Everyone feels bad when they do not sleep enough. However, did you know that lack of sleep is a major cause of anxiety. The more you sleep, the less anxious you will feel.
  5. Exercise regularly: You probably know that exercise is very important for maintaining good health. However, what you probably do not know is that exercise is perhaps more effective than even medication in relieving your anxiety. Therefore, it is imperative for you to get moving.
  6. Monitor your diet: Your diet is crucial in reducing your anxiety as caffeine and alcohol are two of the leading causes of anxiety in your body. However, abruptly stopping your intake of caffeine and alcohol also leads to withdrawal symptoms. Therefore balancing out intake of alcohol and caffeine is crucial. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Dear consultant, my query is regarding the diagnosis and remedy for my friend who has been assisting his family business for many years and has earned consistently through this business to run the family. But in the past few years due to very negligible income through this business he has lost his interest but not willing to dispose this business to invest in new business because of the fear of loss and failure. He is not able to accept the reality and continues to ignore the ways to find new means of earning. However this is not easy also. All other family members are worried but he does not stress himself and is simply waiting for some bright solution to this. This behavior is normal or needs some treatment so as to enable him to run the family quite smoothly. He is married, aged 49 and has responsibility of two grown up children and very old parents. What should be the strategy he should follow from now onwards. Please advise accordingly.

Dear lybrate user We have had many such clients who were not doing well in their life specially professional life. After mind training such people they get back their confidence. They also get out of the confusions and doubts they have as their mind guides them according to their capabilities strengths and weaknesses. Their mental energy no longer gets spent in useless unproductive things and they get more focused and productive. You can tell him regarding this. He can take a free consultation for more information and then decide if he wants to go ahead or not.

Detailed assessment is needed. Like the reason behind smoking, number of cigarettes and comorbid medical condition. Next you should be assessed for withdrawal from smoking and for reducing further craving. Thre are medications to reduce nicotine craving too. If you consult a psychiatrist they will be able to help you. All the best.

I am regular consumer of alcohol and cigarette. I am 18 now. I have started all these at an age of 15. Now I. Am facing a great problem. I am not able. To. Leave them. What to. Do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

Dear Lybrate User, • Avoid Pitta-aggravating foods like spicy, heavy, and oily foods, as well as tea and coffee. • Avoid refined foods, refined sugar, junk food, and alcoholic and carbonated drinks. • Increase intake of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, and vegetable juice prepared from lettuce, carrot, capsicum, and alfalfa. • Avoid using chemical products on the hair. Try herbal oils and shampoos instead. • Mix powdered Indian gooseberry (amla) and sesame seeds in equal amounts. Take 1 teaspoon twice a day with water.

Lybrate user, Welcome to this forum! Yes depression and anxiety can be treated and cured with medicines. Negative thoughts and phobias can be curbed using therapy and medicines. Since depression and anxiety have neurobiological and environmental causes like stress, it can start suddenly in anyone. Prevention of recurrence or relapse is possible with regular medical and counselling therapies. Healthy mind is as important as healthy body! All the best!
