It must be frustrating and demotivating for you to repeatedly" not clear" the exam. Please notice that I said" not clear" instead of failing, because you seem to be associating this failure with your personal failure, which is actually not true. You are much more and beyond the passing and failing in an exam. Humans have unlimited potential out of which we use only 5-7%. Rest is untapped. Clearing your exam is not the only way to achieve your success and happiness. Try to create more situations where you get to learn more and utilise your learning. It is common knowledge that, public exams like banking and ias have few seats available but applicants are in lakhs. Usually such students, create a plan b and plan c, where in they have already thought of another job or course to take up so that their learning and earning doesn't stop. Your knowledge and learning will not go waste. Find out where else it can be applied eg. Ias students learn more about current affairs, general knowledge and govt policies for establishments and organisations. Even if they don't get a govt job, they can apply in private sector or start their own business. Set up a time frame within which you try a set number of times. If you don't get through. Leave it and move on. Life doesn't stop for anyone. People who are flexible and adaptable are successful, people who don't adapt get left out. I'm sure that you would have heard of" survival of the fittest" theory by charles darwin. You must understand what are your strengths and in which fields you would do your best. Think of those moments when you were doing your best and felt the happiest and lively. Many researchers have proved that if you find out what is your" calling" then you will do your best, feel content and satisfied and experience good physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. I suggest that you take out time to understand what you excel at. Maybe not getting through this exam is a boon in disguise.

Hello. Everyone goes through tough times at different points in their lives, and we all feel sad every now and then. It’s important to understand that feeling sad temporarily is very different from being depressed-or having depression. You’re lucky in a sense that your parents are providing you with this opportunity. I understand that it’s a challenge for you. However, think about all the rewards you’re going to reap in the future. But still if you feel like that you are not happy and feeling like depressed so do all these things 1.Exercise 2.Good eating habits (no sugar, for me sugar exacerbates depression for whatever reason) 3.Good sleeping habits 4.Sunlight 5.A break from routine 6.Therapy from any psychologist thank you.

One powerful way to build confidence is by practicing self-compassion. “Self-compassion means we have our own best interests at heart,” Welford said. “We learn to support ourselves in the same way that we would support a friend or relative.” But this might sound utterly impossible to you, especially if you’re more used to beating yourself up. Many of us treat ourselves like the enemy. We regularly judge, criticize and condemn ourselves. Fortunately, self-compassion can be learned. Here’s how. Self-Compassionate Techniques There are many exercises for practicing self-compassion. “We are all different and what is important is to find something that works for you,” Welford said. Here are several techniques to try. 1. Write a compassionate letter to yourself. When doing this exercise, Welford shares several guidelines in her book, including: Validate your feelings and the reasons you’re struggling; remember that millions of people struggle with their self-confidence; remember that everyone struggles, in general (it simply means being human); and try to be understanding, accepting and nonjudgmental. Write a supportive letter to yourself from the perspective of a compassionate person (someone who has your best interests and well-being at heart). You can start the letter with this sentence: “I am sorry that you are having a difficult time at the moment and are struggling to build your self-confidence.” Another option is to “write a letter to yourself from an older, wiser, compassionate you. What would you say to yourself now, and what would a compassionate future look like?” Welford writes. 2. Focus on your well-being. For Welford this exercise is most helpful. First, she engages in “soothing breathing,” an exercise that “aims to bring calmness and a sense of inner warmth and well-being to the mind and body.” According to Welford, it involves: finding a place that’s distraction-free; sitting in a relaxed “yet alert posture;” and closing your eyes or lowering your gaze. “Rather than counting your inhalations and exhalations, let your body find a breathing rhythm that is soothing for it.” When your mind naturally wanders, gently bring it back to your practice. Then Welford asks herself: “What can I do for myself today that will make tomorrow a better day?” For instance, instead of mindlessly watching TV, she might go for a walk or call a friend. 3. Take action. As you build your self-confidence, what are your goals? What would you like to work on? Welford has worked with individuals who’ve set such goals as: meeting new people, speaking in public, asking for help, stopping needless apologizing, expressing their emotions to others and saying yes (or no). Once you have your goals, break them down into small, specific steps in increasing difficulty. Next, brainstorm how you can prepare for the situation, such as practicing soothing breathing and writing a compassionate letter to yourself; the obstacles that might come up; and how you’ll navigate those obstacles.

I am smoking from last 7 years. My age is 24. Is any harm to me?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, smoking is always injurious to health. By now you are already addicted to nicotine. You will feel very difficulty to leave the habit, and therefore you come with excuses and justifications. You need to leave it. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Anxiety and stress is part of everyday life.Important is how you take this stress.Some takes it lightly and other like you lose heart and confidenceand take helpof addictive medicine and few others fallprey to drugs .This shows you nature of weakness in your mind.Stress and tensions are self created ,and dont fall prey to them but try to sort out the exact cause.So immediately stop these medicines as thi will lead you nowhere but you will become mentally weak day by day and consult for Counselling.You really need a counsellor.For that time start taking below given homoeopathic medicines as they are much more safe to consume ALPHA TS ( WILMAR SCHWABE INDIA) Drink 30 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 time daily.

How to get peace of mind.

How to get peace of mind.
Dear, the duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Please provide me with more information, I can help you with this. Take care.

Any such unfortunate incident with an individual may just be a trigger to precipitate an underlying psychiatric disorder. It would be rather inappropriate to speculate about his diagnosis or treatment from such an inadequate data. However I would certainly recommend you to visit a psychiatrist with your friend for a good plan of management. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test.

Hello and thanks for your query let me tell you that depression is not synonymous to day to day stress with which we deal. It is a diagnosis which needs to fulfil certain criteria to be labelled as major depressive disorder. Its symptoms are sadness of mood, loss of interest in routine activities, decreased or increased sleep/appetite, fatigue, guilt, suicidal thoughts. Depending upon the severity of depressive disorder, certain medications along with psychotherapy and relaxation exercises can help. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist for proper diagnosis and management. Hope it helps. Regards Dr. Gourav monga consultant psychiatrist.

Dear lybrate user, nice of you to share your concerns bed time is a time for relaxation. If you do have any issues of concern think of them and an how to deal with them before you go to bed. Say a prayer or sit in silence for 5 minutes when you feel totally relaxed then go to bed. A good nights sleep is important for physical, emotional and mental well being. Do consult a medical doctor for the physical symptoms mentioned. Wishing you all the best.

My wife is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and currently she is currently admitted in hospital my welwishers suggest I should end the relationship as it would be difficult to lead a normal life.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, its true that Caregiving for someone with schizophrenia is a huge job, tiring and frustrating at times. Current and former partners of people with schizophrenia seem to agree that the following two criteria can make or break a relationship: The ill partner must accept treatment. Untreated schizophrenia can make people behave erratically. The other partner may become subject to verbal abuse, emotional neglect, and delusional accusations. No healthy relationship can sustain this. The well partner must create a support system. Schizophrenia affects your partner's ability to meet your emotional needs, so you will need your own support system outside the relationship. Caregivers tend to suffer from depression, so it's important to have access to mental health support, like a counselor or therapist. Friends and family can provide a listening ear, a much-needed distraction, and a sense of normalcy. Both partners must communicate. Open and clear communication will help the partner with schizophrenia get the support he or she needs as well as understand what’s expected of him or her in the relationship. In addition to individual therapy, marital therapy can help both partners cope with the effects schizophrenia has on the relationship. You can take marital counseling the ultimate decision lies with you. Make a sound decision. There are lot of factors to consider. You can discus and consult with me for same. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Everyone are important. Everyone has his or her unique qualities and aptitudes. Forget others. Let them talk anything they want. Instead of correcting others, worrying about others, please change your attitude towards others and circumstances. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

Dear Srikant, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
