Sometimes if parents have not looked into what the child wants to buy instead they have brought stuff of their choice or deprived the child of such pleasures or been overly indulgent and never taught him that he can not pick up stuff that does not belong to him. Children tend to learn to steal. 1. This habit needs to be understood first and then look at possible solutions by calling the family for family therapy and giving space to all members of the family an unbiased and confidential environment to talk about their needs which were not met including expectations from each other. This exercise can build back the burnt bridges and get a chance to communicate without fear of implications. 2. F the parents have been very strict in their parenting style, then they need to update their beliefs about parenting and develop a new strategy which brings them emotionally closer to their child rather than create distance and differences. 3. Since your cousin is a teen, they need a different kind of parental attention. His parents could also explore any outdated myths and beloefs that they hold about teens. 4. Your cousin needs to realise and acknowledge his boundaries and know that such acts have legal and social implications which might land him in legal trouble and social ostracization. What is his need to get that kind of attention? 5. He could benefit from some rehabilitative and counselling process to help him give direction and meaning to his life. He might find answers to some questions which could be troubling him. How does he make place for himself in this world and what should he do to be a part of his gang of friends or who should he befriend? he might also need some psychiatric treatment if the counsellor feels that will help your cousin.

I have anxiety issues and I am not able to get proper sleep , I always have a fear don't know about what but it is there so what should I do?

I have anxiety issues and I am not able to get proper sleep , I always have a fear don't know about what but it is th...
I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from anxiety, which in itself can disturb your sleep. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

You are into an abusive relationship and there may be other problems that make you still remain in such love with the abuser. You may be needing abuse as a way of feeling wanted anyway! The boy does not sound a suitable match for you. But if you are still unable to come out of this relationship I suggest you meet with a counselor and get some guidance as to how you can deal with this situation. There must be love, respect, and commitment, and he must bring out the best in you. You are not even prepared for he exams and busy caught up with boy who is causing the depression. It sounds all wrong and you must either get out of this relationship or go for counseling.

You can come out of depression but you need to combine counseling with medication. In counseling, you will learn a lot of skills and techniques that will help you to meet the daily challenges in life for that of a depressed person. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

People with Myocardial Infarction (Heart attack), can be depressed. But his physical condition and cardiac condition needs to be known and depressive symptoms further elaborated to suggest an appropriate antidepressant, which would most likely show significant improvement in his depressive symptoms. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy. All the best.

I called to doctor and he asked me to stop prothiaden as that was side effect? the third day afternoon I felt same and was sweating too? again I called to doctor and he asked me to stop both the tablet and asked me to consult neurologist.

Hello your symptoms match those of panic disorder. Nexito takes atleast 1-2 weeks to show effect. You need to wait till it starts working. In the meanwhile, you can take an anti anxiety drug like clonazepam during a panic attack. Also, psychotherapy done along with medicines shows better results.

Know About The New Age Relationship Killer, "Phubbing" and Ways to Combat

Know About The New Age Relationship Killer, "Phubbing" and Ways to Combat
How "phubbing" is killing your relationship?

It may sometimes so happen that your partner may prefer texting someone else over talking to you. Also sometimes this seemingly harmless habit can turn into an obsession, when your partner just can’t help but steal glances at his phone while you two are trying to enjoy a romantic dinner. If this turns into a constant habit that just doesn’t wear off, then chances are you’re being phubbed by your partner, and what is happening to you has a specific name. It’s called p-phubbing, which is the act of snubbing your partner by being glued to the phone.
What phubbing is doing to your relationships?

Research shows that Mumbai is the most major hub of phubbing in India. However, the spread of phubbing is not just restricted to Mumbai and has made its presence felt in other metropolitans of the country. Phubbing has led to serious relationship troubles among most couples. James A. Roberts, a professor at Baylor University, co-authored a recent study on phubbing which was published in the journal Computers in Human Behaviour. The study revealed some shocking statistics.

1. More than 46% people complained of being phubbed by their partners
2. More than 22% confessed that phubbing is a major issue in their relationship
3. And about 37% said that being phubbed makes them feel depressed at some point of time.

The study also said that there’s a direct link between phubbing and relationship issues. Phubbing is particularly problematic for those with an anxious attachment style (which makes up 20% of the population of the world), although its effects are also felt on the rest of us. More and more people feel dissatisfied with their partners who ignore them or cut them short mid-sentence to check their phones. Many even feel that their partner is no longer interested in them. For quite a few people it’s the reason behind feelings of insecurity, neglect and depression, and dissatisfaction with life in general. In fact, the study showed that some people had gone as far as ending their relationship as the situation had worsened to a level where it could not be handled.

How can you combat it?

Phubbing now poses as a social evil that must be weeded out of society. If you and your partner suffer at the hands of phubbing, then there are certain things you can do to combat it.

1. The easiest way to put an end to it is to tell your partner how it makes you feel.
2. Make certain rules regarding cellphone use when out on a date, or just spending quality time with each other at home.
3. Alternatively, you can try your partner to quit the habit by leading by example. Don’t use your cellphone at all when with your partner, and show him that spending quality time with him is more important.
4. You can also try educating your partner on the ill-effects of phubbing and how it can adversely impact your relationship. This is best done when you catch him in the act.

Sometimes your partner may not be consciously phubbing you or showing signs of an obsessive phubber, but it is still important to correct his wrong habits. Most importantly cellphones were invented to bring humanity closer, and not distance people even while they are sitting in the same room. So keep that in mind, and put an end to this unhealthy habit.

If you also have depression, you, can relate to the gnawing, stubborn and heavy weight of guilt. Depression dampens a person’s reasoning and problem-solving functions. “This is why a person can feel unrealistically negative about himself, feel guilty or responsible for things that he might not truly believe if the depression wasn’t active.” 5 Tips to Help Chip Away at Your Guilt Of course, guilt isn’t something that simply dissolves with several quick fixes. But you can slowly chip away at your guilt. The below tips may help. 1. Move your body. Getting physical will lower cortisol, increase endorphin flow and awaken your senses.” It also helps people with depression think more clearly and feel better overall. 2. Shift your thoughts. “Feelings of guilt can set a depressed individual into a cycle of negative thinking; each thought worsening into a deeper, more hopeless frame of thinking. That’s why working on your thoughts is key. It is suggested to revise negative thoughts into positive thoughts or using positive imagery. 3. Remember guilty thoughts are not facts. It is helpful to remind yourself that your guilt is just a voice. “Once you say, ‘Oh, there’s the guilt,’ you can put some distance between yourself and the guilt.” 4. Try humor. Humor can lighten the heaviness. For many people with depression, guilt is a real and stubborn symptom. It manipulates the facts and exacerbates your mood. But while guilt can be persistent and overwhelming, it also can be managed and minimized. If you have any further queries feel free to contact. Regards, Sukanya Biswas.

Failure is also an achievement. Try to understand your level by result. Muhammad gajanawi falied 17 times. Shri ram failed several times. Gandhiji failed to make india free in 1930. All fail in life. They try and get success. Get movivated to learn systematically. Tolerate. Work and live detached from its result as result depends on result givers too. If their mood is bad they give 0/100. Then why do you feel failure. It is failure of result -givers. Think positive about self and ability.
