If the above complaints have been persistent for more than 6 months then this certainly suggest a serious psychiatric problem. This may be due underlying depression with associated mood fluctuations and irritability. In case of a female patient this may well be due to disturbances in hormonal levels. The patient needs a complete evaluation, investigation and appropriate management. Consult me online or a psychiatrist in your vicinity for help and treatment.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. There are so many reasons for a female to be lonely and less talkative. There is a basic personality trait with which people tend to be lonely names introversion. Stress, anxiety, depression, mood related problems, disappointment, irritation etc can cause a person to be lonely and less talkative. We need to talk to the person and find out what causes this person lonely and less talkative. I suggest online counseling to her. Take care.

I am 23 old 5.11" I have been smoking since 2010 but from last 3-4 months I have been smoking 10 to 12 sticks per day but now am tired of itI m finding it very tough to quitcan you suggest some medicines to cope up with damage done by the ciggerate.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There are some medicines to help you with quitting the smoking but only for the initial stages. You will need to meet with a doctor to get that prescription. The habit can be very difficult because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important reason. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear Lybrate user. Why should you go for suicide? This is no crime. You are in love with another man. There is nothing wrong in that. If you think itis wrong, you should change your attitude. Take it as normal and never get guilty or tensed. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Hello I am Rahul 20year old. I have problem to hand practice. I want to leave this but I do not leave. If you have any suggestion than tell me and help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Masturbation is normal but not the addiction to it. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it.

I have low Emotional Intelligence. Can I improve it? If yes, pls suggest me few methods.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I have low Emotional Intelligence. Can I improve it? If yes, pls suggest me few methods.
Keys to increasing your emotional intelligence: 1. The Ability to Reduce Negative Emotions Perhaps no aspect of EQ is more important than our ability to effectively manage our own negative emotions, so they don't overwhelm us and affect our judgment. In order to change the way we feel about a situation, we must first change the way we think about it. Here are just two examples: A. Reducing Negative Personalization. When you feel adversely about someone’s behavior, avoid jumping to a negative conclusion right away. Instead, come up with multiple ways of viewing the situation before reacting. For example, I may be tempted to think my friend didn’t return my call because she’s ignoring me, or I can consider the possibility that she’s been very busy. When we avoid personalizing other people's behaviors, we can perceive their expressions more objectively. People do what they do because of them more than because of us. Widening our perspective can reduce the possibility of misunderstanding. B. Reducing the Fear of Rejection. One effective way to manage your fear of rejection is to provide yourself with multiple options in important situations, so that no matter what happens, you have strong alternatives going forward. Avoid putting all of your eggs in one basket (emotionally) by identifying a viable Plan B, and also a Plan C, should Plan A not work out. For example: Increased fear of rejection: “I’m applying for my dream job. I’ll be devastated if they don’t hire me.” Decreased fear of rejection: “I’m applying for three exciting positions. If one doesn’t pan out, there are two more I’m well qualified for.” For more in-depth information on reducing or eliminating over fifteen types of negative attitudes and feelings, see my book (click on title): "How to Let Go of Negative Thoughts and Emotions.” 2. The Ability to Stay Cool and Manage Stress.

Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a fat loss diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

If it is the lungs, there may be some concern. Even if it not concerned with the smoking, giving up is the best solution. Smoking has no benefits at all, period. So do not wait for some problem to crop up before you want to quit. It is not good and therefore quitting is the best solution.

Dear lybrate-user, You are over reacting to some thing very petty. If keep on getting angry with others, it will not helpTalk to your mother and request her to convey to your father that you get hurt with what he says You need to learn to be respectful even when things are not going your way. Going away from home just like that would be disastrous Try to focus on studies as much as possible because your education if your best friend.

Prefer keeping yourself is a bad attitude. It gives depressive thoughts. So better to mingle with others. Share your feelings with close friends and family members. Do not be alone. Keepe. All the time busy. Feel comfortable. Concentrate on your studies. Start your plan of action about future aspects. Do not be waste time. Time is more important in this stage. Past incidents and lost somebody we are not responsible and we cannt anything regarding this. No one exception to nature laws. We must go as per the present requirement. If we stop we lost time and our career also. So please ignore the present situations concentrate on future aspects. Best of luck. My boy.

I am distracted most of the time so please kindly advise me something for concentration.

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.

I'm suffering from my mental problem as I think much on those talks or things which are not relevant also.

I'm suffering from my mental problem as I think much on those talks or things which are not relevant also.
You need to take deep breaths 10-12 times whenever you feel such irrelevant thoughts. And also you go for food supplement i.e. Naturamore male powder, 1 spoon in morning and evening for 1 month. It will definitely give you result by stopping this irrelevant thoughts. All these starts appearing is due to lack of nutrition and stress in this today's world. Better just go for it. If you are not getting it anywhere, please let me know. I will provide you. Take care :)

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are probably under some stress that you are not aware of. If you are distracted by this, you will suffer problems of concentration. If the problem is severe you must meet with a counselor and deal with that. The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i. E. The work. It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. You must also build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. You must also talk to your superior that the workload is getting beyond your means and that you need more personnel to support you. Finally, learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate.
