Meet a life coach and mentor, this is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. 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 as well.

Hi. My friend recently spoke very low about me which has hurt me a lot. I didn't expect this from him since I trusted him a lot. This particular incident broke me to the core will I ever get out of it?

It is indeed sad that your friend spoke lowly about you behind your back. But how do you know that he said exactly what you came to know? Is your source of info trustworthy? Also what made you trust this friend so much? It is not possible to control peoples behaviour. In any relationship, there will be some element of gossip, trust breaking etc. These are very general terms over which people can debate for hours together. However, if you want you can have a word with your friend and understand his reason for doing so. You can observe if he repeats again or do you want to give him another chance at all. These are all choices that you can make. If you feel that he's an important friend, then maybe you can forgive him and give him another chance. Do talk to someone who you can trust and get it out of your system. And don't just think over it again and again, because the hurt will gain more depth and become strong. Let it go slowly and put your mind to other activities.

No. Why call police? The girl does not seem to be a sensible one. You and your friend have been blessed by god that she married elsewhere! just try to think, had she got married to your friend and then had cheated him by going to her previous lover/friend, what life would have been like! strongly suggest, ask your friend not to bother about her any longer and rather concentrate to better his own life in terms of career, family, etc. Let him close all eyes and ears for her and focus on his life. When she sees, no response from his side will go back. You may not be required to do anything else best of luck. Happy diwali.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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 is 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. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: • Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week • Other vegetables: At least one a day • Nuts: Five servings a week • Berries: Two or more servings a week • Beans: At least three servings a week • Whole grains: Three or more servings a day • Fish: Once a week • Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week • Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. • Wine: One glass a day You avoid: • Red meat: Less than four servings a week • Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily • Cheese: Less than one serving a week • Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week • Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week

I very often get clients in their twenties who report of memory problems which typically affect their studies or work. Many of them have already got several tests done such as vitamin b12 levels, thyroid hormone levels, hemoglobin and so on which are all normal. So what is this condition? as perplexing as it may sound, they do not have true memory issue. What they actually have is what is known as a registration deficit. Let us clarify this further using an example. Consider these two scenarios: scenario 1: 10 names are written on a blackboard and then accidentally erased. Those names are now lost and cannot be retrieved. Scenario 2: 10 names were about to be written but for some reason were not written at all on the blackboard. There is no question of retrieving those names. In both the above scenarios, the names are lost and not retrievable. A true memory problem is like scenario 1 where names are entered into the brain and then lost. This is commonly seen in old age conditions such as dementia. The registration deficit is like the scenario 2 where the names were not entered into the brain in the first place. This happens in youngsters due to concentration difficulties. But just as the final outcome of unable to retrieve names is common to both scenarios, so too, the registration deficit gives the impression of a poor memory. So what are the common causes of this registration deficit? well they include anxiety or depression usually. So the good news that automatically follows is that it can be easily treated!

Having a" break up" in a love relationship is almost like" losing a person forever" your loss is understandable. But if you both have made your minds to say good bye, you will have to give yourself and him both a chance to fulfil your decisions. It is going to take some time before you get back to life again. It seems from your story that you are finding it more difficult to get through it. Though there is no full proof formula fir going through a break up, it advisable that you follow some suggestions. Never stay alone, be with friends that make you laugh and make you happy, avoid friends that weep with you, pursue your hobbies, lure yourself by watching your favourite movies with friends, going on vacations with family etc. Avoid finding refuge in harmful ways of coping like drinking, smoking, crying out aloud, finding temporary partners for a fling etc. That does more harm than good. If you still feel unable to cope up, consult a therapist or a psychiatrist for counselling and help. Take care.

You can stop smoking if you keep on trying. No one can predict the exact time of your death if you continue smoking. Each cigarette can cut short your life by 5 minutes, if that is of any help. You can judge for yourself with the following data: Summary: (Source: Center for Disease Control and Prevention) • Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. This is nearly one in five deaths. • More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history. • Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women.1,2 More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer. • About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking. • Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women. • Smoking is estimated to increase the risk— o For coronary heart disease by 2 to 4 times o For stroke by 2 to 4 times o Of men developing lung cancer by 25 times • Of women developing lung cancer by 25.7 times • Smoking causes diminished overall health, increased absenteeism from work, and increased health care utilization and cost. • Smoking causes stroke and coronary heart disease. • Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of cardiovascular disease. • Smoking damages blood vessels and can make them thicken and grow narrower. This makes your heart beat faster and your blood pressure go up. Clots can also form. • Blockages caused by smoking can also reduce blood flow to your legs and skin. • Lung diseases caused by smoking include COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. • Cigarette smoking causes most cases of lung cancer. • If you have asthma, tobacco smoke can trigger an attack or make an attack worse. • Smokers are 12 to 13 times more likely to die from COPD than nonsmokers. Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body: • Bladder • Blood (acute myeloid leukemia) • Cervix • Colon and rectum (colorectal) • Esophagus • Kidney and ureter • Larynx • Liver • Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils) • Pancreas • Stomach • Trachea, bronchus, and lung • Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. Smoking increases risks for: o Preterm (early) delivery o Stillbirth (death of the baby before birth) o Low birth weight o Sudden infant death syndrome (known as SIDS or crib death) o Ectopic pregnancy o Orofacial clefts in infants • Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. • Smoking can affect bone health. o Women past childbearing years who smoke have weaker bones than women who never smoked, and are at greater risk for broken bones. • Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. • Smoking can increase your risk for cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens that makes it hard for you to see) and age-related macular degeneration (damage to a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for central vision). • Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. The risk of developing diabetes is 30–40% higher for active smokers than nonsmokers. • Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. • Smoking is a cause of rheumatoid arthritis. If you quit now, these are the benefits: Quitting and Reduced Risks • Quitting smoking cuts cardiovascular risks. Just 1 year after quitting smoking, your risk for a heart attack drops sharply.2 • Within 2 to 5 years after quitting smoking, your risk for stroke could fall to about the same as a nonsmoker’s.2 • If you quit smoking, your risks for cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and bladder drop by half within 5 years.2 • Ten years after you quit smoking, your risk for lung cancer drops by half.2

It is normal to feel low after losing a close one. But continuing to feel depressed will not help you in any manner. You can keep the person alive in your thoughts and heart always, try and do some charitable act in their name or anything else you feel they liked and would appreciate you doing. This should help you to look forward to life and also give you some motivation.

You need to seek psychiatric help at once. Without naming it I can tell you that you are developing a serious pathology that cannot and should not be neglected anymore. The onset has been just for a year, and the earlier it is treated the prognosis will be quite encouraging. You need to check if there has been a family history of these symptoms, and whether anyone else was treated for any mental disorders in the family tree. You must trace up to at least two generations before you. Please do not delay for your own good.
