General Physician,
Positive Attitudes
All those out there who feel you are at your wits end wondering how things don’t ever work out for you, can now relax and dwell on all those failures that life has taken you through and turn failure into success.
Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure. But it does mean you haven’t succeeded yet.
Failure doesn’t mean you have accomplished nothing. It does mean you have learned something.
Failure doesn’t mean you have been foolish. It does mean you had a lot of faith.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been discouraged. It does mean you were willing to try.
Failure doesn’t mean you don’t to do. It does mean you have to do it in a different way.
Failure doesn’t mean you are inferior. It does mean you are not perfect.
Failure doesn’t mean you have wasted your life. It does mean you have a reason to start afresh.
Failure doesn’t mean you should give up. It does mean you must try harder.
Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it. It does mean it will take a little longer.
Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you. It does mean God has a better idea.

I have a problem. I'm not able to speak with girls seeing their eyes. Please help me to get rid of this habit

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You lack confidence around girls. You probably become too self-conscious, and for some reason underrate yourself. The greatest problem I notice with some men with this type of problem is the discomfort of talking to girls, assuming that there is something sexual. This is a perception unfortunately in our society. It is not normal. You are a nice tall, strapping man, and girls will love to be in your company, without any secret or sexual agenda. So, dispel that idea out of your head, you will feel a lot more at ease talking to them looking into their eyes. Don?t encourage any other ideas in your head but that I am talking to a girl and she is my sister who needs my respect. Incidentally, the eye-to-eye contact does have a little intimidation to it because it feels like the person can see deep into you and you are all exposed. This is fortunately a total fallacy and the belief can make you uncomfortable. In my profession I have to look directly into the eyes of my counselors and I wish I can find out all of that person's secrets! It is just not possible. So face the girl and talk to her. In fact, many girls will mistakenly feel that you are shady, perhaps hiding something unpleasant, or have ulterior purposes. Would you want them to believe in all those lies! On the other hand, if you look them into the eye, they will feel that they can trust you, and that you are a safe person. What a contrast!

Sir my friend has lack of concentration problem he is not able to stable his mind. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your friend must be under some kind of stress which he may not be aware of. As soon as he handles that stress his concentration and memory will happily return! For which he should ideally meet with a counselor. In the meantime let him do the following:Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if he goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else he is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that his 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. He needs to check out if he is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if he combines the two modes, he will get the best concentration and recall. 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 are too long to elaborate here but he can seek that from some courses. If his home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect his memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

Dear Lybrate user. You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Stress - How Ayurveda Helps Manage It?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Trivandrum
Stress - How Ayurveda Helps Manage It?

We generally use the word 'stress' when we feel that everything becomes too much to handle - we are overloaded and wonder whether we can cope with the pressures placed upon us. Nowadays stress is a normal part of life. Almost everyone has some sort of stress. Constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, threatens our health and well-being.

There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better.

  1. Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise.
  2. Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done?' How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make?' Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it.
  3. Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going.
  4. Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out.' Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone.
  5. Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you.
  6. Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it.
  7. Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you.
  8. Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert.

I am 29 years old arranged married and mother of a 6 years old boy I believe in love and love stories. I could not find or others words I didn't find anyone to be loved. After 5 years of marriage I met someone whom I love more than anything. I feel he is my soulmate. But I could never fullfill his dreamt criteria. I feel as a failure I feel very lonely.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The grass will seem greener on the other side, always: more so because you are not happy in your current marriage. Arranged marriages have their pluses and minuses. You have to make good with what you have. You will always find better men and soul mates in life because of your dissatisfaction. I don?t know what is wrong with your present relationship but, if you work on it, maybe it will improve. There is a child too to consider. Love and romance in novels are portrayed with some drama, and cannot be taken for real. They do appeal to the fantasizing mind, and to people who are chronic and diehard romantics. But real life is different; and fiction can eulogize it beyond proportion for dramatic effect and for commercial marketability. Come down to mother earth and face the issues in your current marriage, and only if that cannot be sorted out because of the other?s unwillingness or irreconcilable differences, you can decide to call it quits. As a principle, it is always advisable never to get into another relationship while still in one. Now let me give you the bad news: a true soul mate is one with whom you find the perfect chemistry, both ways. The last couple of words are the crux: if you do not ?fulfill his dreamt criteria, you do not have the right chemistry. Even in normal relationships, it is a two-way street: you must both feel the need for each other. Any one-way relationship does not have the right ingredients to make a good match: which is often called compatibility. So then you are being very unfair to yourself to come to the conclusion that you are a failure because you cannot meet up to his expectations. He needs to accept you as you are, otherwise he can lump it, period. That does not determine your worthiness. Go back to the drawing board and work out the criteria in your marriage before looking out for another.

Dear Lybrate User, *Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. *Daily Massage body with coconut oil and bath with warm water,
