About a year ago i had a breakup, since then i have been suffering from depression, or so I presume, i have consulted counselors, tried everything possible to feel better, right from going out with friends, to eating healthy, taking adequate amount of sleep and whatever I could possibly do, however, i somehow have not been able to cope up with this,i still feel very low, i get zoned out, do not feel like doing anything, i just have developed a very gloomy attitude towards life. Please Help!

It is then established that this breakup was the cause. And you have tried most of what we would recommend to get out of this state. So, I won?t waste time on those considerations. I am going to wager a guess, and if I am completely off the mark, kindly excuse me. However, you can write again and clarify where I have gone wrong. So, here goes: I think that you may have had a poor relationship with your primary caretaker (your mom and sometimes father, though the later happens at a little later age) in early childhood and you are suffering from some dependency issues, which will concern trust, and acceptance needs. As a result you may have gotten into a symbiosis with your boyfriend trying to re-establish that failed relationship, somehow looking to resolve it. It won?t work because it is the wrong person and the relationship is based on a romantic one, with completely different agendas. If the other person is in the know of this need, he may perhaps help you fulfill that need but it will still have some major drawbacks in the actual working out of it. In that case, you will inadvertently become too clingy, controlling, demanding and tend to act in a regressed manner or even act with silly behaviors. Makes any sense? If this does, go and meet with a counselor and work out these unresolved childhood needs before venturing into a romantic relationship.

Anger Management - 5 Yoga Asanas That Can Help You!

Anger Management - 5 Yoga Asanas That Can Help You!

Many of us feel anger, frustration and dissatisfaction in our daily lives. While medicine and therapy can help extreme cases, there are other ways to bring down the symptoms with a proper daily routine, diet and exercise. Exercise can be an incredible treatment to discharge those sentiments. In case you wind up getting angry regularly, yoga can help you to deal with the problem while you are away or at home. Yoga can help with both managing anger and calming you down when you feel particularly furious at any given point. Some of the asanas or postures that help in doing so are as follows:

  1. Savasana (cadaver posture): With the cadaver posture, you lie on your back with your palms up and arms next to you. At that point, you relax every part of your body. While practicing this posture, concentrate on relaxing. Inhale deeply into your tummy. It is best to shut your eyes while doing so.
  2. Sheetali Pranayama (cooling breath): The cooling breathing exercise is a phenomenal approach to address anger. You basically roll your tongue (twisting in the edges) or press your lips together. In case you cannot roll your tongue, breathe in gradually through your mouth so that the air gets in through your tongue. At that point, close your mouth and breathe out through your nose. This practice is believed to lessen the anger and enhance peace of mind.
  3. Ardha matsyendrasana (half spinal twist pose): This posture strengthens the organs and relaxes your spine. You can perform this exercise by sitting with both legs in front of you, and then by folding one knee up while folding the other on the ground underneath the other leg. You then turn your spine toward the side where the knee is up and use the knee as a rest for your arm as you stretch into the stance. Try not to exhaust yourself. In case you feel pain, relax a bit.
  4. Urdhva dhanurasana (upward bow pose): This stance has been efficient in increasing trust between people with threatening or serious identity issues, and decreases anger. While there are a few approaches to accomplish a back curve in yoga, the upward bow stance is the most widely recognized due to the back twists that lead to better circulation of energy.
  5. Salamba sarvangasana (shoulder stand): It can balance out the nervous system. People who deal with anger issues or who have an antagonistic identity will find that this asana helps in lessening their outrage and anger. It creates quality and adaptability and helps the thyroid and parathyroid organs as well.

Doing yoga frequently will go far towards helping you deal with your anger in the long haul. In case you have an identity issue, exercising consistently will strengthen the mind. However, you might need to go to a class keeping in mind the end goal, which is to manage the anger.

You need to visit a psychiatrist immediately. This sounds like a serious condition, and you may be able to stave off worse developments if you act fast. Apart from the medication you must also seek help from a counselor for a good length of time. In the counseling you will learn a lot of skills and techniques to cope with the everyday challenges of life. If it turns out to be a pathological condition there is much work to be done and your cooperation is in your best interest. Do not self-regulate your medication, and comply with all the advice and prescriptions of the concerned doctors. When the mood swings to a better state, you may deceive yourself by thinking that you can now manage without help. That is a typical danger with this condition. Do not succumb to that belief and trust the professional. You could, if you want, seek a second opinion just for your curiosity.

7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

It is nice to know that you have concern for your friend. Liquor is dangerous to health as well as it has social and economical implications. If a person is addicted to alcohol, he should consult a psychiatrist. Deaddiction procedure includes detoxification, vitamin supplementation, psychotherapy, and anticraving medicines. Certainly he will be helped.

Dear lybrate-user, One needs to clinically diagnose the Depression as there is difference between Clinical Depression and Depressive features. Thus you need to contact a Psychologist / Psychiatrist for the diagnosis. As second step - a. Close your eyes. Take deep breaths. Ask your mind to create a time line for you. A time line is simply a line where at different positions you will be able to imagine your past, present and future. You have to assess it and contact me of what you visualise? It there are any abrasions in the line, simple straighten it up by commanding your mind. Do this exercise once a day for at least 7 days. B. Imagine you are coming to the position of present moment each time you visualise the above exercise. For further analysis please contact in private consultation.

You can avoid overeating by having a control upon your mind.Over eating is the reason of pain in your stomach.Our body requires rest to rejuvenate itself and so we sleep ,in the same way our tomach also want rest so a to digest the food you have eaten,but you are going on putting inside the raw material and by this way stomach gets exhausted and express itself with pain.So try to control your overeating habit and try to take 3 mealss a day with nothing inbetween,and taking a light dinner 1 hour before going to ssleep.

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

  • Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless - Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.
  • Feeling extremely depressed - Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.
  • Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you - You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.
  • Loss of appetite during the depression phases - During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.
  • Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases - When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.

If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

Dear lybrate-user, She may be suffering from Major Depressive disorder with delusions. The ideas of black magic may be her delusions. She does not know that she is suffering from this illness. So you need to treat her either with a magistrate consent and admission or some other method. Please come online audio or video consultation. We will find ways to treat her. She is already obese without psychiatric drugs. So the psychiatrist will not prescribe weight increasing drugs for her. Only because she does not know that she is ill, that she is finding reasons to refuse psychiatric tablets. It is good that she is taking her medication for other conditions. Major Depressive Disorder is due chemical changes in the brain and is treatable. The whole family can live with love again.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I went through the details. Alcoholic consumption is injurious to health in many aspects. Therefore, you should completely quit it. The best method is to quit it now and sustain it with will power. Even if you take medicines, without will power, the habbit may relapse. Therefore will power is the key. Mind power building therapy and motivation therapy could help you overcome the urges. I hope you are satisfied with my answer.

Why you want to forget her, she is a lesson of your life. If some girl propose you then is it necessary for you to say. Yes? not possible, there is no rule. You can only propose, that's all. Next time you will be prepared to listen no. Move on, you will get another girl, because you cant force her to say yes.

7 Principles for a Healthy Parent Child Relationship

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology

7 Principles for a Healthy Parent Child Relationship

A lot of parents have strained relationships with their children owing to a variety of reasons- lack of communication, misunderstanding, lack of time etc. This strained relationship results in depression, substance abuse, broken families, suicides etc which affect both sides. Thus, it is important to lay down some basic principles to maintain a healthy parent-child relationship.

  1. Effective Communication: No relationship can thrive without effective communication. You need to invest time and interest in your child’s life to understand him/her better and build a healthy relationship.
  2. Adapt Yourself: To build a relationship, you cannot rely on a single tried and tested method to work for everything. You need to adapt yourself according to the situation and the growing stages of your child as every stage requires a different level of understanding.
  3. Grow with your Child: As a parent, you need to be able to grow with your child. The ability to adapt and evolve according to the different stages your child goes through will help you guide him/her better and give the child a confidante to place their trust in.
  4. Give Space: Every relation requires some amount of space and as a parent, you should give your child the required space. Similarly, a child should understand that he can’t be told everything by his parents and let him make his own decisions. This space given to the other person defines the relationship.
  5. Establish Ground Rules: While setting too many rules isn’t advisable, you need to establish some ground rules as a parent to manage your child’s behaviour and habits. The way these rules are implemented is going to define your child’s development and evolution as an individual.
  6. Respect the Other Person: Respect your child by talking to him politely and lending an ear to his/her problems and more importantly, to receive the same level of respect. This respect is the foundation of building a relationship which is progressive.
  7. Be there for the other person: As a parent, you need to be patient and understanding when your child is going through something and constantly remind him/her of the support he/she has. A child also needs to be empathetic towards the problems the parent is dealing with. This leads to mutual understanding and a healthy transformation in a relationship.
