I want to avoid mental tensions. Can you please let me know the best way to avoid tensions.
Learn to use the replacement method, of changing every negative thought, as it arises, into a positive thought. Don't fight negative thoughts, just divert your attention a positive thoughts or mental images. Write down and keep a list of inspiring and uplifting quotes, and read them several times a day. Think positive and inspiring thoughts before falling asleep. Though it might not be so easy, try to keep an attitude inner detachment in dealing with difficult or unpleasant people. Don't take too personally their remarks or criticism. Don't watch thrillers or action movies on tv before going to bed or falling asleep. Reduce the number of times you listen to the news on the radio or tv. Know what is going on in the world, but there is no need to constantly fill your mind with news that cause you stress or fear. Repeat positive affirmations several times a day. Do so also when you experience stress or fear. -" I feel peace and tranquility filling my mind and body. -" my mind is calm, like a lake on a quiet summer day. -" I feel calm relaxed and peaceful. -" I am a center of peace, calmness and happiness.

I am sorry for your loss. It is normal to feel depressed for few days. Share it with somebody close and do not isolate yourself. Make new friends or spend more time with existing ones. If the problem persists for more than a month, consult a psychiatrist. Remember to eat and sleep properly.

Hi, I am 24 years old female. I got married just a month back. I am short-tempered and I lose my patience quickly. My bad temper worked out in my working place but not in my personal life. I really want to reduce my anger as I am very harsh to my family and my husband. In my workplace, people are really scared to speak with me. I really want to change myself and to lead a good married life. I went through several counsellings but all in vain. Please advise

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Find another counsellor, learn to de stress by doing meditation, yoga etc. Use safer ways to express your anger like explaining it, writing a letter, having open communication and accepting your contribution to the problem. See people for their positives also and not just see their negatives. Have fewer expectations from people and you will be happier. Have a balanced view of yourself and other people. Learn to be gentle, soft and kind to yourself and others too. You can chat with me privately if you want.

Please meet with an ENT specialist and investigate this throat problem. You have to quit smoking and need not wait for the results of the doctor's visit. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. 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. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. 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 but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 gums and 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.

Internal frustrated thoughts may cause for anger. Your mother suffering internally so many things. Better to talk to her in a pleasant manner. She will explain her internal thoughts. Love your mother. Trate to her as good friend. She will reveal everything to you. No diet for irritation. If she is not expressed her internal feelings better to mingle to her with her agemates. Then you can ask to them. You know the problem. Internal unhappiness and dissatisfaction thoughts may cause for excessive anger. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling and relaxation therapy will be much helpful. Better to consult. Best of luck. My best wishes.

My Son who is 16 years old, is having severe anger management issues and bursts out very often. He has started lying very often. We are at our wits end right now. Wanted some advise on how to manage this situation, is Phycatric counseling helpful?

Yes if his aggression is too severe you need to consult a doctor- psychiatrist for medication along with a psychologist for psychotherapy. Anger usually rooted in some other problem, to eliminate that few sessions of counseling will be required. It will help him immensely.

How can I remove my smoking habit? I am feeling torture by my own smoking habits. I do not want to do smoke. Per day I take approx 8 cigarette. please help me dear Doctor to remove smoking habits.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Hello lybrate user. Yes definitely you can quit smoking completely. Smoking cigarettes for long time is nicotine addiction and it gets difficult to quit smoking. Usually people start smoking with friends just for experimentation and later for enjoyment and still later to relieve stress in life, but what they forget is that gradually smoking becomes a compulsion in their life and then whenever a stressful situation arises they smoke. Even the previously pleasure giving food items or activities are no more pleasurable to the same extent. You start spending more and more time in obtaining and enjoying smoking cigarettes. We have medications which decreases craving and helps in quitting smoking completely. Along with medications making simple changes in lifestyle and bringing about stress management in life can have miraculous effects in quitting smoking addiction. I hope that you quit smoking in the near future and resume a healthy life. For help feel free to contact.

Dear lybrate-user, probably you are suffering from hiv disease phobia. Reassurance alone may not work, I think. Still it is better to try it once. If you are under tension disturbing your day-to-day activities, you need to consult me privately online. Disease phobia can be treated with cognitive therapy or desensitization over many sessions. Hiv virus does not pass through intact skin. Since none of her fluid entered, you have no risk of getting hiv. Touching with fingers can not get hiv unless you have a open wound or ulcer on that finger. However, please carry a thick condom with you as a routine. Carrying a condom does not make you bad. You are a normally grown man with full testosterone secretion. You would not have got married for other sociocultural reasons. It is better to be safe than sorry.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.
