My husband gets angry a lot. He can't control it then later he feels sorry about it. While getting angry, he bites his lips, hurts himself, shouts a lot. What to do to control his anger?

He should not control his anger: he needs to control his actions when he angry. None of the feelings are to be controlled. They are to be expressed appropriately and given total catharsis. If not, it will find an organ in the body and bring about its malfunction to total dysfunction. Take him to a counselor and let him learn about anger management and about emotions. If he is not able to explain the anger or its provocation, then there could be childhood influences that have to looked into. When he turns his anger inwards, he will tend to hurt himself. Over a period of time this could lead to worse outcomes and may also become difficult to handle.

What should I do to avoid depression?
Are you trying to preempt depression or do you already have depression and want out of it? I am assuming it is the latter. You must go for counseling and if that person recommends medication you must visit a doctor. Whatever happens do not discontinue the counseling.You can follow these simple rules: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test.

Sexual self-gratification is okay as long as there is no indulgence: this is referred to as masturbation. It is the addiction to it that may be a problem. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At her age she may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if she has alone time, if she obsesses about it, and if she is not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that she may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when she is married (although this is rare among women). That obviously would be an insult to her husband and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. She will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by herself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also she should not spend too much time alone, and she needs to keep her mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if she is not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help her to get into a friendship with a boy and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when she falls in love. Right now her hormones may be very active and her physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of her age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into her impulses. Keeping herself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage her sexual drives.

A married man cheated on me a year ago with fake love affair by hiding his reality and made me fake promises to marry and all.

How can I concentrate on my study as I have so much depression due to family problems also I have symptoms of anger.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You have an anger related depression for which I suggest you meet with a counselor. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your 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. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

First of all take her to a psychiatrist. If you know what is troubling her, talk to her or take her to a counselor. She needs motivation to come from you initially, so become her lifeline for sometime only. As she develops her skills to cope she will not need that much of support. Take her out for various activities, conferences, seminars, workshops, spiritual meets, visiting friends and relatives. Keep her occupied but not busy. Wake her up early and take her for a fast walk every day. Do not let her sleep or lie down during the day. Make sure her diet is healthy and well balanced. If she is left alone, she will internalize her problems and worsen the depression. I do not know how many members are there in the family, but they could take turns to be with her. Do not overdo anything which might encourage some fragility in her or induce fear about her condition. It is serious but not impossible. She just needs a little help due to her condition and perhaps a lot of lethargy. Make her do normal chores in the house, and if you have a garden, nothing like some work there. Take her to a spiritual guide. If she is into menopause, let her discuss that with her gynecologist for some medication.

I am 65, male suffering from too much of anxiety. The other day when I went to board a train to go to Guruvayur, someone stopped me and started enquiring about my journey, claiming to be policemen. They let me off, when my wife, who was coming far back, came and questioned as to what is going on. The duo said that there were bad elements, out to deceive passengers of their belongings and so they called me to warn me to be careful. After this I am afraid to going to the station to board any train. This kind of fear occurs often and I keep imagining about some bad situation, blow it out of proportion and make not only myself miserable but others around me. Several times I have been confronted by people in railway station, bus stand, etc. Like this and duped of money and valuable and this has left a deep impression leading to awful anxiety. How to overcome this?

Dear, these type of problem and negative thoughts are due to obsessive thoughts. Obsessive thoughts are common for everyone. But for everyone, these thoughts happen for a certain amount of time, say 24 hours. Then, they recover mainly because they get themselves busy in some other areas of their life. That is what you have to do. Get yourself engaged in some other areas of life. Take care.

I have a daughter who is 8years old. I also have a son who is 6years old. My daughter is very sensitive and therefore most of the times she is in extreme mood either happy or sad. If she is sad, she will cry for every small things, incident. We try very hard to remain calm and composed with her but her problem of this over sensitivity is too much. She also has this feeling that we like son more than her which is definitely the case. She also do not listen to us and when things go wrong she repents by weeping a lot. Kindly advise I have not consulted any psychologist.

She may have a genuine problem about the attention the son is getting as compared to her. She may not realize that she is contributing more and more to this discrepancy – after all she is still a child. Her sensitivity may have everything to do with this issue. But she is attracting a lot of negative attention, because for her, any attention is better than no attention. Even so, the sensitivity may be inherited from her parents, if there is any truth to that. There could be factors like prenatal influences too that may be contributing to this. You will do well to meet with a child psychologist and get continuous guidance to affect some positive change. In the meantime do give her a lot of attention proactively. If you give it reactively she will develop a manipulative method, inadvertently. Take her out to play, spend quality time with her in non-stressful ways like visiting friends and relatives, movies, trips, events and activities, and many more such things. You can affect a move from the negative to the positive, if you do it ingeniously. Do not give attention for any negative behavior but make those same situations into positive ones. If you get caught up in her game, you will only feed into further sensitivity. She is amenable to change because she is so young and you as parents are well aware to want that change.

Hello its natural to feel anxious during your exams. But everything should be in balance. Too much of negative thoughts will lead to feeling anxious and will affect your performance. Try some visualization exercises or meditation. You can follow deep breathing exercises followed by few visualizations. You can make use of positive self affirmative thoughts. Take a card and write positive self affirmations like" I have prepared well for the exams. I am a hardworking person. I know the subject well. I will do my best and will get good marks. Read these statements early in the morning and before going to the bed and try to motivate yourself. You can also include any recreational activity to distract yourself from those thoughts and it will also elevate your mood. All the best. Thanks.

Because of bad viral fever you are in bad mood. It is not caused for depression. Generally anything happen internally or externally some depressive thoughts comes automatically. We should not take it seriously. It should not link to the past days. If depression comes also you should not bend. Take some psychological counselling sessions. I think previously you are not attending psychological counselling sessions. Better to attend now it self. Life style modification therapy helps to you very much. So better to take. There is no side effects. Best of luck. My best wishes always with you. God bless you.

Congratulations that you want to quit smoking and chewing tobacco. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start 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, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may 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. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. 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.

Ask him to seek help more from counseling in tandem with the psychiatrist's help. There are so many things to learn in life and coping mechanisms that the mere use of medicines will not suffice. The combination os these two therapies will definitely help sort out these dilemmas. If it is not effective then have him change counselors or doctors to see what works with him best. He is not talking in a healthy manner when he says that his days are counted. If he has discussed this with his counselor, surely they will want for him to do more intense work.
