Better check the temperature with general physician. Use medicine some days. Do not feel stress. Sometimes stress is also caused for low fever. Do not feel stress in duty. Develop positive nature in duty. Do work with smile. Start your work with smile. Feel always comfortable. Better to share your feelings with your colleagues in work environment. Do work in a pleasant manner. Do not feel anytime it is burden. Feel comfortable in job. After work is over take much time in relaxation. Sleep well in day time. Do not think and engage with other works in day time. Take rest most of the time. Share your feelings with your close friends and family members. Visit temples. Attend social gatherings. Do not feel negative manner. Think always in a positive manner. Be sociable and be happy all the time. Best of luck.

What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

What really causes personality disorders?

Personality disorders (pd) are anomalies in behavioral patterns of an individual that are characterized by impairments in personal and interpersonal functioning. These are maladaptive psychological conditions that can be mild or intense and can affect a person's relations with others. These are not triggered by the external factors but are inherent abnormalities of behavior and conduct.

The human psyche is a vast and complex field of study which is so diverse that no two cases of psychological dysfunction are the exact same. Personality disorders are of numerous types, each having a different set of causes and traits.

Broadly speaking, they can be classified into three extensive 'clusters' or categories.

Cluster a includes odd or eccentric disorders like paranoid pd,

Cluster b includes dramatic or erratic disorders such as antisocial pd, and

Cluster c includes fearful and anxious disorders like avoidant pd.

Personality disorders are caused by a wide range of factors which impact each individual in a different manner. The most basic and common causes of pd are as follows:

  •   sexual abuse
  •   physical abuse
  •   emotional abuse
  •   verbal abuse

In most cases, abuse occurs during childhood and the pd takes manifestation in the teenage and adult years. A combination of multiple factors gives rise to complicated disorders which have more acute symptoms. Accidents and trauma can also give rise to personality disorders later in life.

Counseling and psychological therapy are used to tackle the problem and alleviate symptoms. Each case requires a different kind of approach and sometimes intake of medication is also deemed necessary. Diagnosis is always subjective and takes into account various aspects of the patient's life.

'consult'.

Sire, i feel to drink as soon as daylight falls down. Kindly suggest me something dat i could quite drinking. Please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. You already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. As a lady, the effects are greater than on men and so you need to be extra careful. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. See if there has been a poor relationship with your mother in particular and in the home. If you find the drive is too much, you could admit yourself to a hospital for detoxification. This will reduce the physical craving. For the psychological craving the counselor will help you. As a combination these two therapies will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement. For further information, you can get from my book on addictions.

If you wake up fresh 5 hours of sleep is good enough. You should generally sleep at night, for 5 hours of sleep you should sleep around and get up at 5 - 5.30 am. Get some exercise- running, yoga or gym (cardio) and have a wholesome breakfast. For studying well, you would have to work on your study skills. Break down the content you want to memorise into smaller chunks. Stop studying the moment you feel you are finding it difficult to focus. Have lots of water. Read aloud to sustain focus. Make points and revise points before sleeping.

Hi I am giving CA final exam in next 2 months but I am finding difficulties in concentration n focusing on studies.My mind starts day dreaming. Please help

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously, to complete your CA that won?t do. Something is bothering you, and it could be the very exams you are attempting to do. CA is a demanding and challenging exam in itself. If you have prepared well all these months and perhaps years too, you should feel good. But your level of fear may be rocketing up to shake up your confidence. Check with fellow-students with group study whether you are prepared, and that will give you an idea to build up your self-assessment. Do some relaxation exercises, and sort out your fear on sound basis, and remove all irrational notions. Do not attach yourself to the results. Pay attention to the process i.E. Your studying, to see that you are doing the right thing. Take small breaks often between studies to break the monotony. Exercise every day, sleep well, and eat nourishing food. Meditation and some Yoga exercises do help too. For more exercises to help concentration, you may write to me.

Dear user. Low self confidence could be stress or office pressure. You must understand, self confidence is directly proportional to your attitude and experience. I suggest online counseling and attitude building therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants stop smoking a normal human takes oxygen into lungs 15 -20 times per minute (15 - 20 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.

Life is a gift. A beautiful phrase: life has either problem or not. If no problem, then why worry? if you have problem, two possibility. Either you can handle or not. If you can handle, why worry? if you can not do anything for problem, then again why worry?) my advises to you are * take life lightly * main problem is how you are reacting matters & incidence of your life & day to day * you can see half filled glass of water by two way: half is still empty (nagative attitude) or half full (positive) * take balance diet * give time for yoga

its regular -Dolo-650 mg twice or thrice daily can be taken to lower a fever . -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress.

It all depends on the vocal cords anatomical position and I will suggest you to rehearse your music as per your normal voice and do normal gargling and avoid any unnecessary food items and don't strain your self much and it can also be possible that after slow rehearsal you can get the pitch you want but it would take extra time.

It is very important for you to remove fried foods from your diet if you have any intentions of losing weight. • Make sure that you do not include fried chicken, fried meat, fried rice or any other fried snacks in your daily diet. • If you completely eliminate fried foods you can see remarkable changes in your weight in a month or two.
