Your problem is not clear with what you have told. A detailed evaluation is required by a good psychiatrist. Meet a good psychiatrist near you for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

I have habit of chewing tobacco. How to stop it. Is sudden stop can make me unhealthy. Please show me some home remedy.

General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally.

How should I get out of my past memories with my ex-boyfriend I am not able to think I want to forget but dont know how?

MBBS, Structure of Intellect learning Specialist
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, My sympathies for you loss, however, I do not write to just offer placating words of comfort that will make you feel good for a short time and then leave you feeling incomplete again. What you probably might not be aware of is that there is considerable evidence that some trauma is good for long term growth. The predicament you find yourself in is no doubt distressing and likely makes you feel that you are lacking in something and are not' whole' or complete. Any life event that causes distress because of a perceived loss or separation from a loved one causes primarily two things - it makes you want to recover or somehow regain what you have lost and it disrupts your sense of identity. All of us rely on others to make our lives meaningful, happy and complete. We want to feel desired and loved and cherished. But that doesn' t always happen. Remember, that right at this moment you ARE complete. You have everything that you need to lead a purposeful and meaningful life. This doesn' t mean that you will not have obstacles or disappointments in your way. What it means is that you can choose to proactively cope with and look beyond your loss or predicament. You could begin by taking the following steps: - When memories, sorrow and distressing thoughts arise, don' t judge yourself or others. Try not to analyze or get too drawn into your thoughts. Observe them without participating in them. - If necessary, find a close friend or family member to talk to. Someone you can open yourself to without fear of being judged. - Cope by asking yourself" what can I do to make the situation better" Try and come up with ways to structure your day with activities that you enjoy, stay engaged with some routine or work or study. See if you can spend some time exercising or reading. - Don' t be too harsh on yourself. If you find yourself musing and anguishing over what you have lost, gently remind yourself that you cannot undo the past, and that some distress is a normal part of life. Remember to affirm that you have the capability to overcome difficult circumstances. - Spend some time considering that there are so many millions in this world who have had devastating losses and heartbreak. Even though you are in pain, you still probably have much to be grateful for like a family perhaps, or good music to listen to, or something as basic as food and shelter! A sense of gratitude helps overcome the feeling of being a victim and pushes you to look for solutions. - Take small steps. Be proud of yourself if you accomplish something, even if it is just reading what is written here. -If you like to read, read inspirational material. Spend time taking walks if possible, and do remember to get a good nights sleep, and eat well. I wish you well and hope that in time, you will come to terms with your loss and find a sense of balance!

Memory is related to understanding 1. Always emphasize comprehension (understanding the topic) rather than cramming. 2. Divide task into smaller chunks - make points - ask your self the basic questions - What was there in the topic, Who did what , When, Where, Why and How? If you are able to answer these questions , you will generally remember it for long. 3. Revise the points orally before sleeping. 4. Keep yourself well hydrated- have water before sitting down to study. 5. Stop studying if you feel you can't understand- Take a short break for 10 mins, have a glass of water, stretch and get back to studying

Dear Raja. Our brain is capable to store everything and there is nothing which brain can forget. But your stress, anxiety and other obsession problems can reduce brains capacity of recollection. Don't be stressed. Get good sleep and moderate physical exercise. Please consult a psychologist for counseling, advice and psychotherapy. Take care

YOu have to control panic attacks by meditation and yoga , Mind control can be achieved by counselling also Calm yourself by remembering that you are only having a panic attack and that nothing more serious is happening to you. Continue to take slow, deep, complete breaths. Slow, deep, complete breaths will relax your body, which is the first step to reversing the release of adrenaline.

The medicine will give you symptomatic relief and the root cause will not get treated. To avoid being very anxious before and during the exams, try the following: 1. Devide the entire syllabus in small parts. Count the number of days you have for studies. Depending on the syllabus and available days, make a time table wherein you will have fixed time for getting up, fixed time for studies, meals, rest and relaxation and fixed time for going to bed. Try to follow this time table. Please note that you must have some time for relaxation - either games, tv or meeting friends etc. 2. Set some goals for yourself e. G. How many marks do you want to score in each subject? - have realistic goal. Try to achieve this goal. 3. Do not compete with others. Try to compete with your own performance every time. 4. If sometimes you cannot achieve your set goals, try to see what went wrong, improve upon that and try harder next time. 5. Just before the exam, sit at one place, close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths slowly and exhale little forcefully. While exhaling, imagine, that your are pushing out all your stress, tension and anxiety. Have faith in yourself. Tell yourself that you have been studying and will try your best in the exams. 6. While answering the question paper, concentrate on your own paper, don't look around. If required take 5 deep breaths and calm your mind. Without thinking about how many marks you will get, try to answer each question to the best of your abilities, within the set time frame. Please remember, that most of the people are anxious before any exam. Some anxiety will be there. But with proper planning before the exam and by following relaxation techniques just before or during the exam you can reduce your anxiety. All the best.

This is all stress and worries of life. She is having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask her to read this. 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.

I'm 18 and I'm doing engineering so any suggestions how can I increase my memory power?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

Concentration and memory both are closely related. Firstly you need to have a solid goal. And interest in what you are doing. Once you have thst following things will help you increase your concentration and memory. 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. If you have further question or need personal help feel free to contact me hope this helps wishing you very best,

Being in a medical field you know that how your mind and body are connected. And how your thoughts are affecting your actions. One thing is for sure that you are very intelligent and committed person. You also sound very sincere as well as sensitive. I have worked wit medical students for almost a decade. Please try fee things I am mentioning below. When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. 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. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Marital Problems

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Pune
Marital Problems

While you took vows of sticking to each other through thick and thin you surely hadn't thought of the extremes of bitterness a marriage could entail. The fundamental flaw is perhaps in treating a marriage as a sanctified institution instead of a genuine relationship requiring patience, care, and understanding. The minute you start taking your partner for granted your marriage moves an inch closer to failure. Respect is a key ingredient in love; try to identify if you are losing respect for your partner. Dejection could be the general response to a continued stretch of quarrels. Take out time to sit down and situate marital problems in order to bridge the gap between two souls.

Power politics: Individual mindset decides the course of your marriage. Many people bask in the idea of equality, but never quite feel free to practice the same. Men or women should be comfortable in letting the other person share responsibilities. Nobody should dictate his or her partner in mutual or personal matters. Suggestion, discussions and disagreements as well can work for the betterment of your marriage. It is wrong to assume power in any relationship.

Never sacrifice your career: Fights and quarrels could result from your negligence towards yourself. You could be so interested in appeasing your partner that you give up on your career. In such a situation your partner might lose respect for you or might find you overbearing.

Procreation: Marital problems could arise from differences in opinion regarding procreation. One of the two individuals might want a child while the other person might not be ready for it as yet. A partner can also not want to procreate ever. If a married couple already has children, they may fight over them too. Many people find it difficult to accept their partner's take on issues related to the child.

Domestic issues: Domestic partnership can affect your marriage greatly. Problems start arising when two people, however close, start sharing the same space. There could be conflicts regarding cleanliness or kitchen work. It is necessary that you act sensible and never burden your partner with all the housework.

Banal sex life: It may happen that boredom overshadows your sex life. The reason behind frequent quarrels can be a lack of sex or infrequent sex. Reach out to your partner to know his or her desires while communicating yours too.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to consult a psychologist for counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Brain fag needs to be diagnosed as a disease condition. Brain fag symptoms includes somatic, sleep-related and cognitive complaints, head and neck pains, difficulty in concentrating and retaining information, and eye pain. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.
