You have good concentration. You shift your interest into learning new things that help you clear exams. Practice learning organize way/ Make a graph of priority areas in your syllabus and concentrate and learn. Practice answering question papers of previous years and time it be serious. Be quiet in mind and all others will have the same in their mind. Be natural and face in your own words. For public speaking you practice for few times. You will master. Just do it. You think of strength and relax. Meditate and keep deep mental poise.

Dear user. Homosexual means men having sexual relationship with men. Homo sexual people are of two types. First type of people will have only sex with male and they can't have sex with female because they are not interested. Second type are those who can have sex with male and female. Straight male is not homosexual Take care.

Does A Healthy Diet Reduce The Risk Of Depression?

Does A Healthy Diet Reduce The Risk Of Depression?

Depression is a mental illness marked by feelings of profound sadness and low interest in positive activities. It is a persistent low mood that interferes with the ability to function and appreciate things in life. It may cause a wide range of symptoms, both physical and emotional. It can last for weeks, months, or years. There could be various causes of depression, but poor diet is one of the reasons revealed by researchers.

A certain study reinforces the hypothesis that a “healthy diet has the potential to not only ward off depression, but also prevent it."

Depressed individuals often have a poor diet quality and a decreased intake of nutrient rich food. But this is not yet clear in the case of healthy individuals suffering from depression.

A healthy diet characterized by vegetables, fruits, cereals, milk and low fat dairy products, pulses, fish, meat and poultry is associated with a lower risk of depression.

Increased intake of folate was also associated with a decreased risk of depression because low folic acid levels leads to low same (s-adenosylmethionine), which increases symptoms of depression. By improving folic acid status, same increases, and depressive symptoms drop. Vegetables, fruits, berries, whole-grains, meat and liver are the most important dietary sources of folate.

In addition, coffee and tea also act as anti-depressants to an extent because caffeine promotes the production of dopamine (a neurotransmitter released by the brain) which is responsible for the feeling of well being and happiness. But the amount of caffeine consumed should not be more than 300mg per day as caffeine is an addictive substance.

Omega 3-fatty acids, which are found in vegetable oil, nuts and fish oil, increase the level of serotonin (known as the happy hormone), which reduces the level of depression. Not only this, essential amino acids like tryptophan play a role in the formation of serotonin. Meat, fish, beans and eggs are good sources of essential amino acids.

Having refined carbohydrate and processed foods increases your blood sugar levels and does not provide any kind of nutrient to the body and brain. It even utilizes the mood enhancing vitamin b. Sugar also diverts the supply of another nutrient involved in mood enhancing, chromium. The best way to lower your sugar level is to have food low on the glycemic index.

Lastly, vitamin d deficiency may cause depression because vitamin d is responsible for brain development. So consume vitamin d rich foods such as egg, mushrooms, fish etc.

Depression is one of the leading health challenges in the world and its effect on public health, economics and quality of life are enormous. Not only the treatment of depression, but even the prevention of depression needs new approaches. Change in dietary and lifestyle factors are one of the possible approaches.

Dear lybrate-user, I appreciate your move of smoking. When you leave any of the substance immediately after a long term use, you get withdrawal symptoms. Irritability, aggression, sleep disturbance, low mood are some of the common symptoms. These will go with time. Duration depends on the amount of nicotine you were taking. You may consult your doctor for nicotine skin patches or other nicotine replacement methods. Hope this will help. Regards, Vibha.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping tomy self all the time. Please help me.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping tomy self all the time. Please ...
Losing someone close is a very painful situation when one undergoes immense emotional suffering. Grief is a natural response to loss of someone or something important for you. It’s the emotional suffering one undergoes following the loss. But life has to go on so one should cope with these difficult emotions in a healthy way. Last one year must have been a difficult time for you. Try the following to cope with the loss: •Face your feelings: More you try to avoid or suppress your feelings & loss, the pain will get more intense & prolonged. Unresolved grief can also lead to complications such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and health problems. Accept the loss, acknowledge the pain & face it. When it comes to the mind, do not try to divert your mind, but try to rationalize the thought & explain yourself the reality. •Do not stay alone, but try to stay amongst friends, family members or anyone you are comfortable with & share your feelings. At the same time avoid people who demotivate you, spread negativity or make you feel more uncomfortable. •If you follow a religious tradition, then spend some time in spiritual activities like praying & meditating, as it provides solace. •Express your feelings in a creative way: You can write down your feelings, make an album depicting aspects of the life of your loved one, do something constructive like fulfilling some incomplete task of your close one, and do some good social work in his or her name or something that your close one would have liked. You can plant a tree in his or her name & take care of it. •Usually the grief comes back during events like death anniversaries, birthday, days which were significant to of the one gone. Memories & feelings get awakened at those moments. So mentally prepare yourself before such events & do something constructive on that day. •Maintain a schedule & try to follow it to keep yourself diverted & active. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, eat healthy, sleep adequately. •Avoid substance of abuse. Many a times it is seen people take support of abusive substances like alcohol, drugs, cannabis etc to run away from the pain of loss. It is an unhealthy way of coping with grief & does harm in the long run. Stay away from any substance of abuse. •Pursue your hobbies or those activities that provided you joy & satisfaction. •Take a break & plan a holiday to reduce the stress. •Join a support group consisting of people who had experienced similar loss. Sharing with someone who can understand your feeling really helps. Staying alone & isolated brings in more pain. Now-a-days there are such groups in social media including Facebook where they post messages reading which provides comfort, where one can post their feelings as well. But one should take proper precautions before posting personal information in those memorial pages. You can opt to create a closed group in Facebook than posting in a public page. •If the grief persists, get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & advice you counseling sessions or prescribe you medicines accordingly. •Allow time to heal. Time is the best healer, & with time the pain will lessen up but memories will remain intact. So have patience & continue with life in a positive way.

Can ignorance/indifference to fear/ anxiety reduce it and one can overcome thru this technique.

Can ignorance/indifference to fear/ anxiety reduce it and one can overcome thru this technique.
That is a good question lybrate-user. Evidence seems to point out that negating distressful internal events actually makes them stronger. So if you are talking about ignoring or perhaps suppressing fear and anxiety, that might not work. What might help is looking at this fear and anxiety, allowing them 'to be' just like we allow and even rejoice in positive mental states like joy and happiness. The willingness to accept distressful feelings/thoughts and emotions as they are without struggling with them or desperately wishing them to go away often reduces the impact they have on us. This approach when practiced over the long term significantly changes our relationship with what we perceive as painful. When I say 'looking' it means without analysis or judgement. We 'witness' this fear and anxiety perhaps like an observer and just as every thought and emotion and feeling, they arise and then they pass. Accepting and allowing them to be helps tremendously to not get drawn into them and become overwhelmed by them. I do hope that this helps you a little bit! Wishing you well, Swarajit.

Problem of Stammering

D.H.L.S, B.A.S.L.P, M.A, B.Ed .SE . ( H.I )
Speech Therapist, Delhi
Play video

Hi, I am Murli singh, speech therapist and audiologist. Me aj apko kuch haklana, jise stammering bhi kehte hai, ke baare me batana chahta hu. 

Stammering ek aisi problem hai jise hum bohot he aram se theek kar sakte hai agr use sahi tareeke se treat kia jaae. But zada tar is problem pe tab dhyan diya jata hai jab bacche bade hojate hai. Stammering ke liye agar hum speech therapy ki help le, to har haklaane ki problem ka solution sambhav hai. Haklana ek aisi samasya hai jisme agar baccha 5-7 saal ka hota hai, tab bacche ko kuch pata nahi chal pata. Lekin jab bacche bade hone lagte hai, jese ki jab bacche 18-19 saal ke hojate hai, tab doosre bacche mazak banane lagte hai. Aisa hone se baccha depression me chala jata hai aur acchi education hone ke bad bhi wo apna represesntation nahi de sakta. Speech therapy ke madhyam se haklaane ki beemari 100% tak theek ho sakti hai, agr uska sahi tarah se treatment kia jaae speech therapy dwara.

Ap logo ko ek baat vishesh baat ka dhyan rakhna chaie ki haklaane ke liye speech therapy ka bhi koi aisa jaadui kaam nahi hai ki turant theek hojae. Stammering treatment ke lie speech therapist sabse pehle apni kuch exercise aur kuch tips bataega. Apko mirror ke samne khade ho ke yeh bataega ki kon kon se words ko kis tarah se bolna hai or yeh dekhega ki kon kon se words me wo hakla raha hai. Haklane ke lie speech therapy treatment theek se diya jaae to 100% ye problem theek ho sakti hai. To dosto, agar apko haklane ki beemari se azaadi apani hai to aap isko speech therapy ke madhyam se theek kar sakte hai.

Humare yahan kaafi bacche aate hai jinhe is tarah ki problems hoti hai, aur zadatar bacche theek ho kar jaate hai agr wo humare instructions ko theek se follow kare to. Lekin aisa nahi hai ki 3-4 din speech therapy ke lie aane se haklana band hojaega. Speech therapy koi jaadui dawai nahi hai or na he haklane ki beemari ko theek karne ka koi tonic hai. 

Koi bhi ladka ya ladki kitne bhi educated ho, ya kitna bhi paisa ho, lekin agar shadi ki jab baat hoti hai, tab bohot dikkat aati hai. Shadi ke samay ya koi truth face karne ke samay baccho ko bohot problem aa sakti hai aur isse wo depression me bhi ja sakte hai. Islie haklane ki beemari ko theek karne ke lie speech therapy he ek aisa madhyam hai jisse hum ye problem poori tarah se theek kar sakte hai. Yeh ek psychological issue bhi ek, jese ki agar kisiko presentation deni ho or psychologically dimag me yeh aajae ki me hakla na jau to is wajah se maansik pareshani shuru hone lag jaegi.

Aisi problems ke lie agar ap treatment sahi se chahte hai to humare yahan se, Karkarduma ke aage Genisus Neurogen rehabilitation centre pe visit kar sakte hai. Humare yahan pe speech therapy, audiology ki suvidha di jaati hai. Iske ilawa ap hume Lybrate ke through bhi contact kar sakte hai.

Humne ek package banaya hua hai, agar aap us package ke instructions ko follow karenge to apka haklana poori tarah se samaaopt hojaega. To dosto agar apko meri baat samajh aai hai to aap humare paas aiye or humse treatment lijiye. Hum aapko Lybrate ke dwara poori tarah se madad karne ki koshish karenge, text messege k dwara bhi, audio/video call k dwara bhi

Meri taraf se aap sabhi ko bohot dhanyawad.

Hi lybrate-user, It can get very lonely when you don't have a support system in the form of friends. I can understand how you May be feeling. Can I suggest that you go out more and invest some time making new friends. Introspecting and understating more about yourself will help you figure out what type of friends you would like in your life. Don't lose heart, you will make new friends, you will let go of old ones. Life is constantly changing. Change with it. Your feelings of depression will pass when you focus on yourself. Take up physical exercise or a sport. Deep breathing is very beneficial as well. If someone has hurt you in the past, forgive them and let go. Create space in your life for new friendships. Stay happy and healthy.
