Hi, I am a lawyer and my profession requires lot of numbers to be remembered like sections acts etc. I was always scared of maths as a kid and due to this I opted for commerce as a subject but again in accounting I hardly could score passing marks and since then its d same scenario I never took it seriously before but for d past few months the more I try to mug up sections the more I tend to forget everything. Today morning my teacher asked me few sections in the class all I could remember is lot of pages flipping in my mind but not the answer and I was sweating all over inc heartbeats as if I could literally hear my own heartbeats and also shivering. I don' t even remember phone number of my family members or frds. Have my judicial exams coming m scared can' t loose it just because of numbers please suggest. Hope thrz nothing serious about it.

You have been avoiding math for too long and now it has grown up on you as an essential part of all that you do. I think that it is now causing you so much anxiety that it is affecting even the memory of phone numbers! you must get this fear and distaste for math out of your mind, first. These are just figures and not complicated calculations where you need to use formulas and formats. Just calm down and take in the fact that you just have to remember numbers, not calculate with them. The fear (to a point of phobia) is actually crippling you. After you have calmed down and accepted math as an integral part and parcel of your daily life, learn some very effective techniques to developing a statement with the words to recall the figures. Say for example, you have a file reference as follows: plo 1930/2015. You could make a statement that reads something like this: the palestinian liberation organization can, in one shot, love nine israelis and take thirty pot shots this year at golf (the underlined letters become your clues to the figure to be remembered). This statement may not make much sense but it is meant to be so that it will enable grasp the imagination, and to be captured in memory. You may also use this variant: plan to lie to my older son at nineteen before he becomes thirty, this year itself. You may also use an audio sound recall by reciting numbers with chosen pauses and have an audio memory that is easily recalled: e. G. 9448113793, audio memory could be recited as follows: nine, double four eight, double one, three seven nine three. I don? t know if you got the drift. Sometimes you can arrange the numbers in such a way that it is easy to recall (again it is an audio skill): 9341255060, to be remembered as nine, three, four, one, twenty-five, fifty, sixty! it will be easy to memorize such variants. There are many more you can learn from some teachers. Talk to counselor to eradicate the fear, the block in the mind, and to appreciate math and not fear it.

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

You will need to do a personality development course with all the five factors to be worked on: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness, and spiritual fitness. Apart from that you need to do regular exercise and keep yourself fit and prim. You need to follow a healthy diet of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. You must have a minimum sleep of at least 6 hours every day. Public speaking skills and conversation skills will also help you tremendously. The more knowledge you have the better so read a lot, attend seminars, conferences, discourses, and keep yourself updated with the latest news from tv, internet, magazines, and newspapers. You must also educate, and not just qualify, in good and useful college courses to develop knowledge and skills. Develop good social skills by meeting a lot of people from various walks of life: you are the friends you keep. You must be spiritually sound and have a good set of values and respect for life.

I am unable to cope with my studies pressure can you help me by suggesting one guidance line please?
Study with a calm & relaxed mind. Try to enjoy your studies & stay positive. Do not take your studies as a stress. Take the following measures to study better: •Study daily from the start of your academic session •Revise your lessons regularly. •Group studies & group discussions are also helpful. •Do not try to memorize blindly. Try to understand your lessons. •Write down the main points & form mnemonics from them. Mnemonic devices are techniques which help to remember something. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. •Have a plan to manage your time of study. Make a routine for studying. Study for 30-45 minutes & then take 5-10 mins break. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •Just focus on giving your best effort. •Take your class time seriously by taking notes summarizing what your teacher has said. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •Have adequate sleep. •Explore your own talents & feel good about yourself. •Set goals which are realistic & within your capability & try to pursue them. •Stay away from substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis, inhalants, drugs etc. •Enhance your coping skills & problem solving skills. •Spend time with friends, family members or well wishers with whom you feel comfortable & positive. •Practice deep breathing & relaxation exercises •Eat healthy food & reduce caffeine, tea, cola, and chocolate consumption. Put your best effort in your studies. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, I would like you to read about fetishism, in psychology, a form of sexual deviance involving erotic attachment to an inanimate object or an ordinarily asexual part of the human body. Fetishism as a mental condition may be defined as the necessity to use a non-genital object in order to achieve sexual gratification. The affected person has created a strong association between an object and sexual pleasure or gratification. The object may be some other body part, an article of clothing, or, less frequently, some more impersonal object. A person with a fetish often spends significant amounts of time thinking about the object of the fetish. Further, the object is intimately related to sexual pleasure or gratification. In the extreme, the presence of the fetish object is required for sexual release and gratification. The person with fetishism frequently masturbates while holding, rubbing, or smelling the fetish object or may ask the sexual partner to wear the object during their sexual encounters. Usually the fetish is required or strongly preferred for sexual excitement, and in its absence there may be erectile dysfunction in males. The condition occurs almost exclusively among men, and most of the objects used relate to the female body or female clothing. The articles of clothing most commonly used are shoes and items of female underclothes. Olfactory sensations are also frequently important. For some people with a paraphilia such as fetishism, paraphilic fantasies or stimuli may be necessary for erotic arousal and are always included in sexual activity, or the presence of the fetish object may occur only episodically. For example, the fetish object may only be necessary for arousal during periods of stress, and at other times, the person is able to function sexually without the fetish or stimuli related to the fetish. If you have any further query, feel free to contact.

A friend (in her early 30's)is going through a post trauma of her divorce. She has lost her interest in life. How to council her, please suggest?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Divorce is very painful and difficult. If there was any abuse, it will be even more hurtful. But the earlier she deals with that pain, the earlier will she get out of it. Please make her talk about the marriage until she purges herself of all the negativity. Let her use her own language to describe it, and let her talk extensively. When you are able to spare time, take her out and let her relate to others and the world around her. Gradually she will come out of it. If she broods over the divorce, withdraws, or is unwilling to talk, she could get into more problems. When listening to her, reserve your judgment, and just be a good listener. Occasionally, empathize with her and show a lot of understanding. The worse regret in a divorce is when the person realizes that there was something more that could have been done, but was left without adequate pursuit. This thinking usually follows later when it is too late. If that is the case, she will need to be consoled and know that both of them were responsible but that it is too late. Life has to go on and she has to move on. If she is working, it will be a lot easier, if she attends to her job. Tell her not to meet too many people who knew the couple well, and definitely she should not indulge in bringing out dirty linen. Help her understand the lessons to be learned and the role she played in this downfall. That is extremely important for her recovery.

If you look into past relationshi[ps it is only to reminiscence about the good times and for any lessons to be learned. Beyond that, it is all history. You must focus in the present and this moment a gift. If you have an idle mind, it will become fertile ground to brood and think negatively. You must become occupied and get involved in things that matter right now. In fact, there is so much happening that there is less time to complete all the tasks. Unless you get into these things you are likely to waste away. You may be sensitive to rejection and getting caught up in all the past rejections that have affected you. Close the​ past and have goals in life but focus in the present.
