Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Is there is a way to clean your lungs . For a person smoking . Or a doctor can do it.

The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time.

Should we go for this? she is my life and I am her life we love each other. We are in a relationship from last 12 years.

The idea is exciting and may be a huge turn on. If she is your life and you are hers, why would you want to expose it to possibilities! You will put your 12 year relationship to risk and the love of your life too. Let me explain: once this is carried out there is a grave danger that this friend of yours might be more impressive in the bed and she may love that too much to want to give up! Strange things happen when passions are whipped up: she may fall endlessly in love with him and you may be conveniently eased out. He may fall in love with her and look to eliminate you by whatever means he chooses; love being as blind as it is known to be! After this experience she has a choice to make to be with one or the other at her whim, and many things can go wrong with that. You can be in charge of your emotions but never of another. The respect you have for each other and your bodies is now subject to anyone?s carnal desires. Anyway these things do not last and the end result may not look at all what you desired. You need to respect and preserve this relationship with a lot of regard and sanctity and not objectify your girlfriend?s body or her character to such fleeting whims. The choice is yours and my opinion is that it is ill-advised. Just because an idea is fantastic and turns one on does not mean it is safe for many reasons.

Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the 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 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.

This is a lifestyle related issue and it can be surely treated with intensive lifestyle modification program. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customized approach. By customised approach we can attempt to reverse her diabetes and achieve excellent sugar control without medication. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Continue brisk walks or jogging for 45 - 60 minutes every day.

Anti depressant medication should be continued for at least one year. Due to depression there occur some chemical changes in brain. Antidepressant medications may reverse this change, which may take many months. After about a year of stablization if there was none relapse of illness, medicines may be gradually tapered before stopping it. So, my advise is to continue medicine as advised.

The best way to deal with the situation is to keep taking a nice and deep breath which will help you stay calm and in control. Don't let their anxiety or excitement disturb you. In you look inside, you know how you did in the exam.Now it is time to simply accept it, and accordingly make a next plan. also, doing activities like listening to music you like, and watching a commedy movie or a tv show to keep yourself calm will also help. if it is not too hot at your place then going for a long walk in the evening might also help release the pressure and calm your nerve. If you wathc hindi movies then, remember Aamirkhan from three idiots and keep telling yourself "all is well". spend some time with friends, as they are in exact same situation like you, you all togather will be able to help eachother relax and be prepared for tomorrow. If you need any help once the results are out, feel free to contact me. wishing you best result tomorrow and very bright future ahead,

It's very important that you attend couples therapy with your husband. Even if your husband isn't willing to visit a psychologist, you must consult a psychologist just so that you ventilate your thoughts. You'll also receive a fresh perspective on how to look at life.

Improve your concentration with few tips and tricks!

Concentration depends upon the ability to focus. Concentration is basically concerned with disciplining your mind to improve focus. However, your mind will tend to resist your efforts as it loves its own freedom. By practicing 10 to 15 minutes of exercises to improve concentration on a daily basis, you will be able to train and discipline your mind, and hence improve your concentration.

Before proceeding to do these exercises, there is a need to set the mood for it. First of all, you will have to find a place where you can be alone without any disturbance. You can sit cross legged on the floor or on a chair with your spine erect. Take a few deep breaths and then relax your body to direct your attention to it. To start off, you can practice these exercises for 10 minutes and then lengthen the time to 15 minutes after a few weeks of training.

Exercise 1
Take a book or a magazine and count the number of words in a single paragraph. Count them again to ensure that you have counted correctly. You can start off with one paragraph and as you get used to it, move on to counting words in two paragraphs. Then move on to counting words on the whole page. Make sure that you perform the counting mentally and only with your eyes without pointing your finger at each word. This is one of the simplest brain exercises to improve concentration.

Exercise 2
Another exercise to increase concentration is count backwards in your mind from hundred to one. Once you have mastered this, move on to counting backwards from hundred to one but this time skipping three numbers such as 100, 97, 94, 91, 88 etc.

Exercise 3
Select an inspiring word or just a simple sound and think about it in your mind, repeating it in your mind for 5 minutes. Once your mind has begun to concentrate on it easily, move on to 10 minutes of uninterrupted concentration.

I am not surprised by that development. Two years ago many matters were normal but now there is the effect of the hormones. At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. 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 chemicals: 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.

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. 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. 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 all junk food.

Also gradually decrease the no of cigrattes you are smoking, sudden leaving would result in withdrawal symptoms and you will get more craving for the pipe. Also take reckwedge no. 77, german homoeopathic medicine. Positive thinking and strong control along will medicine should be able to help you to quit smoking.

You are at rick even if you smoke one cigarette a day. There are 4000 chemical substances in cigarette smoke. So the danger is real. So do not worry about that but do quit and live a healthy life. It is never too late to change. The habit can be very difficult to halt 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 factor. 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. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. 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.

Stress performance if plotted on a graph is a bell shaped curve some degree of stress improves your performance but if stress overshoots a point then performance declines. For reducing stress while studying 1. Make a to do list of topics before starting. 2. Prioritize the topics to be read and study accordingly 3. Take intermittent breaks of 10 min during studying 4. Listen to soothing music or talk to your dear ones 5. Do not compromise on your night sleep as it improves long term memory 6. Before beginning next day recall or rehearse the topics studied day before 7. Take healthy diet and keep yourself hydrated 8. Try to learn meditation and practice daily.
