Dear. I can understand. The present addiction to internet has been created by yourself and therefore you have to force yourself out of the habit. Promise yourself that you will not use the phone for any other purpose than calling. Divert your attention towards other engaging activities like physical exercises, games, entertainment, being with friends, hobbies. Etc. Take care.

I am tempted to find relief and be in control with mild beer - can of Kingfisher. I have undergone Hernia operation and Catract operation few months back. Kindly let know what is the right course to be followed for my good health.

You need to watch your diet, especially fat and salt consumption. Consume a lot of fiber, vegetables, and fruits. Avoid flesh protein as much as possible, except fish and some white meat. I hope you are not over-weight. Exercise is a must. You need to catch at least 6 hours of sleep every day. Stress management is also highly recommended. Alcohol is best avoided. Go for regular checkups. There are some excellent new products that are natural extracts, which help in weight loss, and reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides. If you are interested you may contact me and start on them immediately.

Dear , Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. 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 see 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 think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user...Anxiety with a feeling of being on the edge almost throughout the day causing significant functional impairment is suggestive of you having Anxiety Disorder. In your case not taking medications for anxiety disorder and just treating your insomnia will be a wrong management plan, as with anxiety a person will have difficulty falling asleep. Thus I would suggest to target and treat your anxiety and sleep problems simultaneously for a much better result. In case of your anxiety regarding sleep, I would suggest not to sleep during day at all, not to go to bed and force yourself to sleep during night time. Just wait and do some un-interesting work say reading some serious novel in a dim light away from your bed. Once you start feeling sleepy, get back to bed and sleep. Its a vicious cycle of not having sleep a night and you trying hard to sleep the next night thinking that sleep may not come. This forcing yourself to sleep is itself anxiety provoking and thus try not to go to bed until you feel sleepy. And yes if this is not sufficient than you may need the help of medications. Take care

Remind yourself of what’s going right-Usually people are stressed about just one or two areas of their life. If they only took a moment to look at the big picture, they would see that the vast majority of their life is going well. Grab a pen and some paper and write a list of all the stuff that’s going well in your life. (You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how long the list becomes.). Now stick that list next to your computer, so that you see it all day long. Watch how quickly your perspective changes and your mood lifts. Get ultra clear on your to do list. Clarity enhances serenity. If you’re stressed by how much you have to do, get precise about exactly what tasks must be done (You’ll often realize it’s less than you thought). Once you’ve created your list put a circle around the truly crucial tasks. Most of the time stressed executives have exaggerated just how much they have to do. Getting it down on paper helps you see that mountain of work may be smaller than you thought. Try the 3 breath release. Take a deep breath. Then as you exhale imagine all your problems and stress leaving you. Do this just 3 times. Too much of stress leads to sleep problems. Please consult a Clinical Psychologist.

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. You may contact psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

How to Keep Sexual Passion Alive?

B.A.M.S., M.D.(A.M), EX-M.R.C.G.P., EX-M.R.S.H., EX-M.S.I.E.C.U.S, EX-M.S.S.S.S.

How to Keep Sexual Passion Alive?

We all look for someone with whom we can be ourselves and can share everything with them. An active sexual life is very essential for a smooth, happy relationship. Usually over a period of time, sexual relationship between partners becomes a routine and unfulfilling.

Here are 5 tips you can follow in order to not only enjoy and maintain a passionate sex life, but also to grow closer in your marriage:

  1. Appreciate each other: You can show appreciation to your partner in many ways. Tell your partner how beautiful they are. There is no bigger turn-on than telling your partner how beautiful they feel while making out. Surprise them with flowers or love notes. Appreciate the little things you do for each other as it is the small things that matter.
  2. Sex and Intimacy: Physical touch is very important to maintain a connection with your partner, but so is love and respect. Sexual intimacy is a key factor in living up your relationship. However, you should also remember that intimacy does not pertain only to the bedroom. Make it a daily habit to kiss, touch and tell your partner that you love them.
  3. Listen to each other: It is very important in a relationship to listen to each other and make your presence felt. Do not always counter your partner or be disrespectful. Talk about your likes and dislikes, both in terms of life and your sexual preferences. Adapting to each other and feeling comfortable with each other is the key to maintaining continued passion in your sex life. 
  4. Laugh together and make efforts: Your partner is your most trusted companion. You might love them, but don't forget to like them. Treat your partner with the same politeness, courtesy, and respect as you would treat your dearest friend. Little things like dinner together, a shower together can be great boosters, so never ignore them. All you need is to make some effort.
  5. Be playful and unpredictable: Always maintain a relationship with dominant playful nature with your partner. Instead of pertaining to the bed, spice up your sex by choosing different locations. Have sex on your rooftop; experiment with role plays and sex toys. Sex is incomplete if not accompanied with laughter and fun. Following a same routine everyday would surely make your sex life boring, make unpredictable moves, which have got something new to add new life to your sexual relationship. Your relationship will remain fresh as ever.

Sharing your precious moments with the one you love would keep the spark in your relationship alive. All you need to do is, make some effort and enjoy a strong and passionate sex life.

Last month l lost my father, then I feel very depressed prefer keeping to myself all the time.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Last month l lost my father, then I feel very depressed prefer keeping to myself all the time.
Loss of a beloved father is a great trauma. Its natural. To feel sad for the loss. This will take some time for you to recover from this loss. Just follow some humble suggestions - donot stay alone - be with your friends and family - talk your heart out. Do not keep things to yourself even if they seem less important - do not make any drastic changes in life immediately. Avoid making any concrete decisions at this moment. Get suggestions from well-wishers and family members - if you continue to feel more and more depressed and find difficult to come out of it, do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist for treatment. Depression is treatable.

Psychologist,
I have a girl friend but I am unable to meet him so I am depressed. Please help me.
Hello Narendra Asking the question and acknowledging that you are ready to fight is one of the first and most effective ways. There's no one right answer here, because it's different for everyone. Sometimes, it's even different for you depending on the given day! Here are some ways to get started: Talk With Someone-Therapy exists for a reason. Because it helps. Fighting depression doesn't always mean needing medication or even needing intense therapy like CBT, sometimes it just means needing someone to listen. A friend, or a mentor or a therapist are all great options. Get Active -It can be hard hard hard to be active and exercise when dealing with depression. But if you are up for it, it is an amazing way to start fighting and managing your symptoms. Activeness doesn't have to mean going to the gym or on 5 mile runs, it can be 10 minutes of yoga in the morning or a stroll through the park. Practice Mindfulness and Acceptance-Learning to be present in the moment and accept that you might have sad times but it's okay is vital to managing and fighting depression. There are simple things you can do to learn mindfulness like my #1 Mindfulness Tool To Help You Focus on the Present Moment Get Creative -You might not have ever touched a paint brush before but that's okay. Being creative can mean journalism(writing) or doodling or yes, painting. Using creativity as a way to examine and release your emotions is a great habit to start for managing depression. Check out: 5 Reasons to Journal For Your Wellness Keep Going-It's not going to be easy. Don't let anyone tell you that it will be! And even when you get to an amazing place, your depression may come back. That's just how the beast works. One of the most important things you can do for fighting your depression is to understand that it's going to be a lifelong battle and to keep moving forward. Something important to include in your own self-healing , would be going out and socializing. You are probably less alone than you think. thank you

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

As strange as this may sound, these are all signs of poor exercise. You must do a lot of walking as exercise, not as work. The difference between the two is that the worked related exercise is strenuous whereas the exercise for fitness will always feel good and make you fitter. As and when you start you will feel the difference.

Sir I am not suspicious and I watched a video on paranoid disorder patient and I feel that I didn't have much of this disorder because I am free to every one except when girls see me. I didn't separate my self from society, people or anyone else. Sir I made myself strong ethically so as to not feel any change in my sense of response with others. So now from two weeks I am feeling somewhat good.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of crab apple + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose) on empty stomach.

Hello doctor, I am 20 years old women. Day after tomorrow my final examination. I am notable to cover all topics. Infact I am not able to remember what I have read. Please give me some advice to overcome this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First of all it is too late to pile in all that information in such a short time and hope to remember all that stuff. You are putting yourself under a lot of stress which will also jeopardize your memory. Instead study only the most important and often repeated questions, and rely on your previous memory to answer the not-so-important topics, if they appear. You could use some of these tips even though it is rather late in the day they will be still be useful: 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 or coconut 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 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

Dear, tension means in one way anxiety or stress. You are aged 30. There could be many reasons to get stressed or to be anxious about. Stress is part of everyday life. We need know the stress and learn to live with it. Fighting the stress causes anxiety. Anxiety and apprehension further causes negative and obsessive thinking. Please let me know your stress and life pattern. I will help you overcome those areas with positive approach and cognitive therapy. Take care.
