Hello Sir, I'm a 24 year old male and suffering from depression due to lack of study. I'm appearing for this year's civil services exam which will be held in August.

Please don't label yourself with depression if you haven't gotten a professional diagnosis. This will only hamper your recovery and taking proactive steps to help you out of your emotional stress. 1. It seems that the results will impact your life a lot and decide your future. Please remember to give these exams and results only that much importance that they are due for. Ovethinking aboit it is only adding stress and not helping you at all. Life is much more than these exams. In the longer run, your mental, physical and emotional wellbeing will help you find solutions to all your problems. So take care of your body and mind. 2. The studies and preparations are in your control so focus on that. Do your best to prepare well and cover all the necessary portions well. Join study groups etc to get a stronger grip of your subjects. The result is not in your control. So stop over thinking and catastrophising. If you do well you will get a job. If you don't get a job, have a plan b and c in mind. Talk to other students and hear what they would do in a worst case scenario. In india, there are always other options available but you need to be open and flexible for making this change. 3. Even if you don't do well in the exams then try to find out the reasons and know your role in it. If the examiner was in a foul mood and didn't give you marks that you deserved then don't blame yourself. Public exams have this element of grey area and it's best to factor it into your planning. Remember that it's the survival of the fittest and very few seats are available for which lakh of candidates apply. You need to be mentally, physically and emotionally fit to cross all stages and beat all competion. Get a grip of yourself and study well but don't forget to enjoy life with friends and have some fun times to relax yourself.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Still if you insist on memory problems, we can conduct memory test. Concentration needs interest and dedication. Set a goal, dedicate yourself to the preparation towards that goal. Concentration will come automatically. Take care.

The zosert, arpizol, amlo and ciplar are good psychiatric and hypertension medications and are allopathic and not homeopathic. I am not sure what homeo she gave, but there are many quacks out there who collect huge amounts of money and fleece innocent patients like you. Even if homeo medicines are given get it from authorized dealer with prescription, the choice of allopathy or homeo is yours, but do not combine both a you do not know which works and the drug interactions between these 2 streams of medicine have not been studied.

Dear 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. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart 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.

Tips for Good Mental Health

1. Know the friends or people who tend to wear you out, and deliberately limit the time you spend with them.
2. Be aware of how your thought patterns change throughout the day, and challenge these thought patterns when they’re harsh or negative.
3. Recognise that it is normal to struggle with your feelings, and feelings can be fickle – so don’t let them rule your life.
4. Set some personal goals that use your talents and your gifts. It’s good to stretch ourselves, and to be all that we can be.
5. Be gentle with yourself when you are anxious, tired and stressed. Be kind, and understanding – and give yourself a break.
6. Self-nurturing is crucial for a healthy self esteem. You need to treat yourself as you would treat a special friend.
7. Remember: we ALL fail. It’s just normal part of life. What matters is you’re learning and you’re changing over time.

How to avoid stress and anxiety.
I am 21 year old and I am working in a power plant at technician.
You cannot avoid stress and anxiety completely. They are natural, normal and in fact essential for us to survive! but you definitely need to keep them under control. Make it a regular habit to wind down. Do one or two things every day, one thing every week and one more thing once in 1-2 months, like taking a short trip, that helps you relax and be happy. For example, you may read a little before bedtime, may be go for a swim or a run every sunday, and visit your friends or relatives once a month. Eat healthy at regular intervals. Drink plenty of water. Exercise 3-4 times a week. Share your emotional experiences, good or bad, with somebody close to you regularly. But remember, some stress and anxiety is completely normal.

I am 28 years old and suffering from a very bad problem from few days. I am loosing my memory power. I can't remember all things of few years back. Mainly I am facing problem related to the new things I learned. mostly I am forgetting the lessons or what I read. Can't remember those things what I read yesterday very carefully and read many times I am facing this problem from q years.

General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hi doctor im 28 years old male I do have sleep disorder from the past 6 years and I have not take serious action but ...
In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

I lost some body closed last year and very depressed please help me and guide me.
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

I am afraid of darkness, during night. So tell me what should I do to avoid or decrease it.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
I am afraid of darkness, during night. So tell me what should I do to avoid or decrease it.
Hi lybrate-user, One way to help yourself get over your fear of the dark is to make sure to give yourself enough time to wind down before you go to bed. You’ll need to work on shutting off all electronic devices at least half an hour before bed, avoiding caffeine after noon or so, and doing something nice and relaxing, whether you read for a little while or listen to some soft music. Getting yourself in the most restful mindset possible can help you ease the anxiety you feel when the lights turn out. Try 10 minutes of meditation. Just sit down and focus on the breath rising in and out of your body as you relax your body parts, one at a time. Focus on thinking about your body and breath only and banishing all anxious thoughts from your mind. Find a groove that works for you. It can be drinking chamomile tea, listening to classical music, or cuddling with your cat. Avoid doing anything that will make you more afraid or anxious, such as watching the nightly news or a violent television show. You should also avoid anything that will be likely to stress you out and make you more worried at night in general, such as last-minute homework or a serious conversation. You don’t need to shut off all of your lights at once to get over your fear of the dark. First, you should know that sleeping in darkness leads to a deeper, more restful sleep than sleeping with the lights on. Use this as a jumping off point to encourage yourself to sleep in darkness. If you sleep with all the lights on because of your fear, you can start off by dimming the lights a little before you go to bed, or even shutting off some of the lights if you wake up in the middle of the night. This can help you slowly get used to sleeping in darkness. You can set a goal for yourself, like deciding that you’d be okay with sleeping with just a nightlight, or only with having another light on in the other room. When you get into bed at night, ask yourself what you’re really afraid of. If you think there’s someone in your closet, under your bed, or even hiding behind a chair in the corner of your room, then you should go and check that place. Show yourself that there’s absolutely nothing to see and nothing to be worried about. If you do this, you’ll be proud of yourself for facing your fears and will be able to sleep more at ease. If you wake up with this fear in the middle of the night, tell yourself that the sooner you check on it, the sooner you’ll feel better. Don’t spend all night worrying about the unknown. Change your ideas of darkness. One of the reasons you may be afraid of the dark is because you feel that darkness is evil, awful, darkly mysterious, chaotic, or any other number of negative things. However, if you want to start embracing the darkness, you have to work on forming positive associations with it. You can think of it as calming, cleansing, or even comforting like a thick, velvet blanket. Work on changing your perception of the dark, and you’ll soon be able to embrace it. Write down all of the things you associate with darkness. As silly as it may sound, you should cross them out or tear up this piece of paper. Then, you should write down new, more positive associations. If this feels too corny, you can say it aloud instead. When you are feeling scared try to see the funny things that happen in your life or about something you saw or read, like if someone runs in to a glass door and they get back up look around and walk into it again and then opens the door. If you're scared, try to think of funny things that happen in your day or during the week. Remember: the room is the exact same thing in the dark as it is in the light, so there's nothing to be afraid of. It's just your imagination! If you hear a noise, try to come up with a pleasant reason for that noise happening. Such as if you hear creaking, tell yourself it's your pet looking for a late night snack. If you're afraid of the dark and are wide awake try not to let your eyes dart around the room looking for anything that might get you but instead, just focus on your breathing with your eyes closed. Make sure that you don't have any scary posters or something in your room at can trigger your fears. Sleep with a pet if you need to. Have something to think about so you can talk to yourself at night in your head. Try to think positive. Perhaps you saw an amusing cartoon earlier in the day, you could think of that. Distract yourself when you have your eyes closed. For example, plan out what you're going to do tomorrow. If you play relaxing music all night, be sure not to put the volume up too high. Play your music loud enough for you to hear it, but not so loud that it will bother your sleeping family. Remember sometimes anxiety is helpful and required for your survival. Your fear may be the only thing that is keeping you out of danger. Keep a journal about your fears. If you want to you can share your journal with your family so that they can help and support you. Consult psychologist.

You should not proclaim your love to any one you feel attracted to especially when you are already friends with people. Wait and watch your every step before declaring anything. If you continue to harbour the same feelings for almost one year, maybe that time reevaluate your emotions and declare.

FEELING ANXIOUS? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO REMEMBER

1. Worrying creates more problems; faith transforms. No amount of worry will change the situation. It will only you feeling experiences that you need to help you transform into the best version of yourself.

2. Keep going; everything happens for a reason. Even if you feel that life is merely one problem after another, all of these difficulties only serve to test us and make us stronger. They enable us to handle future situations in a better way, and teach us valuable lessons about life. Without struggles, we would not experience growth as human beings.
3. Pain is temporary. Any situation never lasts forever, whether that be a bad breakup, financial struggles, family arguments, or other issues. No matter what you might be going through, console yourself by remembering that you have control over your emotions. You can choose to see the positive in any situation, and change the pain into an opportunity for growth.

4. There is purpose in your pain. Spiritual teachers in the past commonly advised that we attract what we feel and what we are, so any bad situaCREATES tion we face is often the product of our own thoughts and feelings. This may not always hold true, but many times any difficult situation can be looked at as a valuable learning tool and an experience to test our highest selves. Remember that the problem isn’t a problem actually, its your attitude towards it, that causes the problem.

5. Take a minute to pray or to channel positive energy. No matter what you might face, try to look at the bright side of the situation and call on your guru, GOD or seer for higher wisdom. They will help ease your frustration or anxiety about the experience, and calm your energy so you can better handle the situation. Prayer will put things into perspective and remind you that everything on Earth works in mysterious cosmic ways which we can’t always understand.

6. Other people’s problems are not yours. If you have a strong sense of helping others, you probably feel its your duty to help solve everyone else’s problems. However, this can leave you feeling drained at the end of the day, and others might start seeing you as their support system, that they can call at all hours of the night. While showing compassion and support for others is important, you need to find balance between helping others and helping yourself.

7. Maybe you should do exactly what you’re afraid of doing. The only way to experience growth is to leave the comfort zone behind. Sometimes you need to test your limits and throw caution to the wind in order to know your true capabilities. You might discover newfound passions and totally new sides of yourself that you never knew before by overcoming your greatest fears. Surely, if you want to learn to swim, you will have to enter the pool or the river.

8. The bad days allow you to appreciate the good ones even more. Without bad days, you wouldn’t even recognize the good ones as “good,” because you would only have a limited perspective to go by! The funny thing about life is that we can’t know pleasure without pain, happiness without sadness, success without failures, and so on. We live in a dualistic reality, meaning we experience opposite ends of the same spectrum in most aspects of life. Appreciate the full experience that this human realm can offer, because often the worst occurrences unveil the best lessons.

9. Remember that you have a LOT of influence and power over your life.You don’t have to become a victim of circumstance or succumb to defeat; you have total control over your life and can easily turn a bad situation into a good one. Keep in mind that rainbows only show up after a storm, so you must bear with the storm in order to recognize the lessons it holds. If you let yourself get into a negative mindset, you will fall into a victim mentality once again. Resolve to keep your mood up despite your current situation, and the negativity will not have any power over you anymore.

10. Don’t worry, we all have ups and downs. Just look up and keep going.The next time you feel overwhelmed by the pressures of modern life, just remember that you and millions of others are in the same boat. The best thing to do is to actively create a life you love, and the pressures won’t seem so enormous anymore. Keep calm and carry on.
