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. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Please understand that the gold standard and correct way of practicing medicine is to clinically examine first and based on clinical findings and possible diagnoses, suggest appropriate tests to either confirm or refute the possibilities in mind. Getting all kinds of tests done is a futile exercise. Certain basic blood tests may be done such as hemogram, rft, lft, rbs, electrolytes, tsh to get a general sense of direction. But otherwise, randomly ordering tests is not a good idea. Please get examined by a good doctor and then act on his guidance. Take care!

If she is suicidal also, she needs treatment without her co operation. You need to admit her forcibly in any licensed hospital to take care of un co operative patients. One of the magistrates will sign the request from psychiatrist or hospital. Two psychiatrists independently need to sign that she is mentally ill and needs treatment for her own safety or others safety. One can approach police or special ambulances for mentally ill (available at bangalore) to take her to hospital. Once she is diagnosed and treated, she will become co operative and she will be given psychoeducation of depression and its treatment.

I am 27 year old now. I don' t hava a proper job nor good friends. I always feel lonely and frustrated in my life and it' s effecting very much in my small family. I' m controlling all my negativity things of my life. Please suggest me to live a normal life.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Controlling the negativity is not the solution: go and face the world. Find a better job, make new friends, and socialize a lot. These things will get you out of your state, of what seems like, a depression. You need to lead an active life anyway and strengthen yourself to face the difficulties that life shoves on you, regularly. Negativity is there all the time for all the people. You have not been specially chosen to be troubled by it. If others can cope, you can too. Don? T believe in the negative: be positive. In fact I suggest the following to you always: be respectful, be responsible, and be functional.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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 lybrate-user, sometimes there is no external reason for depression its due to neuro-chemical imbalance in brain. You should consult a psychiatrist for medication, if you tell me your symptoms in detail I would be able to screen the severity of your depression. Have more fruits in your diet- banana's, more green leafy vegetables and dry fruits, if non veg- have fish. Try to exercise daily for 30 minutes.

Can Yoga Improve Your IQ?

Can Yoga Improve Your IQ?

When you get a compliment, 'smart thinking or you are intelligent or that was intelligent of you', you definitely feel good. These comments fill us with confidence, admiration and pride and we want it to happen to us again and again. But owing to a busy schedule and long working hours it might not be possible. Having said this, it does not mean that a person cannot stay intelligent throughout. This can be easily achieved by regular meditation. Regular meditation and yoga helps the mind to be more reflective and efficient.

Here are reasons how yoga and meditation lead to an intellectual learning and growth:

  1. Utilizes the brain: Almost everyone uses one half of their brain more and this leads to imbalance. Meditation is believed to sync the left and the right hemispheres, thereby allowing neural connection and great processing power. When logical left and creative right brains start working in harmony, then solving problems becomes easy; and it also increases creativity, deep thinking comes to be known of and concentration and focus magnifies. Highly successful people usually display whole brain synchronization.
  2. Functional capabilities of brain enhance due to meditation: Research backs it that meditation increases the gray matter thickness of the brain regions, thus making the brain smarter, bigger and faster. This is very similar to doing physical exercise which makes the muscles denser and stronger. The increase in Functional Capabilities of brain is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, which states that our intelligence is not based on genetics and there are some things which can be done to improve the way our brain works. Meditation is a good brain enhancer with an ability to increase intelligence.
  3. Beneficial brainwave patterns can be seen: Meditation can help to guide the brainwaves into beneficial frequencies. The frequencies: alpha, theta and delta when guided can show case a myriad of benefits including idea generation, creativity, cognitive functioning, and intellectual capacity. Meditation helps to transform these beneficial states of mind and help boost the IQ.
  4. Develops intuition and insights: These are generally obtained through listening and developing to the inner voice. Thus meditation forms to be the basic key to tap these latent abilities. The intelligence can be mapped through tests and quizzes and is valuable at each level to stimulate insights and creativity. As per some people, inner intelligence, is considered to be the most important and best success in the world. Successful people including Steve Jobs have stated that their super revolutionary ideas and business acumen came through their intuition.
  5. Meditation helps in improving both short and long term memory: The key memory areas hippocampus and frontal lobe show increase in activity during meditation. By stimulating these areas, the short and long term memories are improved.

It is very natural to feel emotional pain in such situation. Give time to yourself to heel and recover from this trauma. Avoid to be alone. If you are able to help and support yourself, you will be able to support your kids. They are going to learn these coping skills from you.

Yes she definitely requires assessment and treatment by a psychiatrist. A lot of patients develop acute depression after a surgery, especially in old age. It could be some other mental illness also. It's ok if she feels afraid to visit a psychiatrist, you should still take her. She'll be much better when her treatment starts.

Sleep is not a cure for stress although it may help in relieving it. You need to examine what is causing the stress and go after it to seek a resolution. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution: sleep will give you temporary escape and will also give you the necessary rest from the day’s stress but it will never resolve it. In fact, you may feel fresher after good sleep to then take up the stressors of the next day. But to resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. The rudeness is a sign that you are scared. so meeting a counselor is mandatory to your​ resolution.

You are already crippling yourself by imagining the worst of yourself while around people. You are highly sensitive to being rejected and being criticized. You are indeed unique and there is no one who is going to be like you, ever! You have a problem of self-acceptance, and if I may venture to say may be a rejection issue. This latter may have happened due to an actual rejection which you may have experienced very early in your life. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socializing skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Admit him to a rehabilitation immediately. He should be admitted for at least 6 months and after that, he needs to be on continuous for at least three years in that condition. He will need to attend aa meetings in his town, and the family has to attend al-anon meetings too to work their own issues in relation to the alcoholic and be prepared how to handle his return.
