I am suffering from hesitation from childhood. Now i'm 25 year old. Any solution then please give me suggestion.?
Understand why you are hesitant. Hesitance stems from uncertainty. Uncertainty is. Well, it's almost guaranteed, for every situation you will ever face. If you're always certain, you're probably wrong, because none of us knows everything. So hesitance is actually a sort of safety or defense mechanism - in the face of uncertainty, almost everyone hesitates a little. 2 Address your fears. A huge factor in hesitation is fear of doing the wrong thing, or making a mistake. There are two main ways to deal with this. One is to imagine that worst case scenario that's really holding you back (like embarrassing one's self--that's a big one for most of us) and saying to yourself" so what" people embarrass themselves all the time; in fact, if you watch popular and charming people, you'll see that they mess up too, but more importantly, they respond gracefully to their own mistakes. They joke around about it (watch - they will say things like" no" as they make an exaggerated attempt to stop the catastrophe), they even make fun of themselves (d'oh! i'm pathetic"), and they immediately accept that they're human, and mistakes happen (" man - I hate when that happens"). They make some silly remark, give a big cheesy smile - and they move on. You can, too. If you make a mistake, it's not the end of the world. Secondly, think of the consequences of inaction. Remember that hesitating means not acting, and not acting has its own consequences. Don't want to talk to that guy because you're worried you'll put your foot in your mouth and ruin your chances with him well, you might, and that's okay - life will go on. Or, you might win him over; you never know! but, if you don't act, you guarantee that nothing will ever happen. How can sparks fly when you won't even come face-to-face with him do you really want to just wait for him to do everything what if he's more paranoid about action than you are? when it's over, would you be happy with how you handled the situation, in retrospect? stop hesitating train yourself to think, then act. Overcoming hesitance does not mean you should just start jumping blindly into situations - that could get you into trouble, or worse, be dangerous. But taking a moment to mentally consider the ramifications of decision a or decision b - and in rare cases, decision c - could spare you problems later. Train yourself to think through first one possibility and then one other - and stop there unless a third possibility is glaringly obvious. Don't allow yourself to go off on tangent after tangent, chasing down every possible eventuality. Give yourself a choice between two actions (or that rare third one), and then decide. Give yourself a time limit. To help you avoid" analysis paralysis" you should give yourself a defined time limit when considering serious actions such as purchasing a home, accepting a job, or quitting one. Instead of grinding over endless possibilities, and then discovering you've now been chewing this over for a week and it's too late to care any more, give yourself a couple of hours to consider accepting a job. Sleep on it before you act on a decision to quit or make an offer on a house. But once you have reached your time limit, take action. Make the decision. If you find that you are hesitant over simple, every day decisions, like asking that pretty girl out, or whether to go to a company party, or even what to have for lunch, try giving yourself just 30 seconds to decide. In this exercise, you must say" yes" at least 50% of the time (in other words, no fair retreating to the safe" non-action" all the time). This will help you to save your" no" for events or decisions where it matters a lot more - or a lot less - what your answer would be. Next time you're deciding what to do and find yourself cursing your hesitance, look at a clock or watch, and start counting down from 30. By the time you reach 1, you must make a positive decision. Example: co-worker" we're having drinks at jojo's tonight - want to join us" you" uhm. I'm not sure. Ummm who all is going" co-worker" everyone from accounting and that pretty new girl. I know you want to meet her" you: (really nervous and hesitant now" wow. I'm not sure" co-worker: (resigned to you just not showing up, as usual" well, okay. Let us know. You're more than welcome to come, though" (starts moving away) the new you" you know what - yes, i'd love to come. I was just thinking about whether I already had something, but it's not important. Thank you for asking me - i'll see you tonight" co-worker: (pleasantly surprised" great! we'll see you then. Uh - her name is emily, just so you know" the new you" ok. See you then. Mmm. Emily" (smiling quietly to yourself) force yourself to do new things. Having new, different experiences helps you learn to cope with new situations, and it builds your self-confidence, which helps you become a more decisive person. Often, hesitance and indecisive behaviours are caused by having lived a sheltered existence, or not having much experience to draw on. Allowing yourself to go to parties or gatherings, or even just going to meetings, conventions, or the movies with different people, broadens your horizons a little bit every time you do it. You hear the stories others tell, and you soon have some stories of your own to tell. As you become more experienced, you will be more certain of what will happen in different circumstances. Being more certain = being less hesitant. Have confidence and faith in yourself. You have some special talent and you need to show it to the world.

I am a Cigarette smoker. I want to know how to clean my lungs. And how to dilute this effect on lungs.?

B.A in Psychology, NLP Practioner Certificate
Psychologist, Surat
Hi, lybrate-user,need more information about your smoking habit How many cigarette a day do you smoke? From how many years you are smoking need brief evaluation I suggest you consult your pulmonologist for cleaning your lungs. Damages your lungs from inside and without quit smoking you can't clean your lungs as you know it's effect on your lungs. If you think that you want to quit smoking so, I suggest you to take NICOTEX. NICOTEX is a chewing gum containing nicotine that helps smokers to quit smoking. It works on the proven principal of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). HOW TO QUIT SMOKING? YOU NEED TO HAVE strong will power, counselling by a psychologist & lots of motivation. I could help create a quit smoking plan and further guide you on how to take Nicotex for a period of 12 weeks. Stay committed, there are no side effects, and you can take it with your medication. Believe that you can quit. List down the reasons to quit e.g for your health, for your loved one. Health hazards of smoking: Brain: increases the risk of having a stroke. Eyes: Smoking can lead to vision loss Mouth: Darkens gums. Creates white sports on the tongue. Reduces the ability to taste and smell. Skin: Risk of premature wrinkling and greying. Leads to dryness Hair: Reduces the nutrients that reach the hair, leaving it lustreless. Accelerates hair loss and greying Hands: Discolours fingers and fingernails on the hand used to hold cigarettes Lungs: Retards lung development and result in mild air way obstruction during adolescence. Increases the risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adulthood. Smoking is the major cause of all type of lung cancer. Heart: Chronic smoking increases blood pressure, heart rate and arterial stiffness. Bones: Associated with loss of bone mineral density. YOU CAN QUIT SMOKING STAY HEALTHY.

Since you are already on medication I suggest you talk to your treating Psychiatrist and convey your current symptoms to them. It is possible that some changes in medication dosages will help improve the symptoms. As they are familiar with your history it is always better to have a discussion with them regarding this situation.

Dear Srikant, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Hi, I'm 32 year old married man. I got married about four year ago and it was an arranged marriage. Now I am hopeless due to hyper behavior of my wife. Whenever I deny something to my wife or try to make her understand something, a long argument take place and if I am not agree with her than she becomes hyper and at last she behaves like insane. Try to leave the home immediately or try to harm herself by taking the knife at her throat (even on throat of my 2.5 year old son). She had also tried to jump from the running car (with son) ones time because she was scolded her for some expensive purchase. But just after half an hour she becomes normal and accepts her insane behavior was wrong. She also accepts her fault in part and complaining a headache just after the incident. Initially I ignored this but throughout time I see repeated pattern. Her some relatives told me that she possess this type of behavior since childhood and her farther and grandmother also have the same pattern. Is this any type of genetically disease? Or psychological problem only. Is there any cure for it? Please suggest me.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Hello lybrate-user your wife's behavior could be genetic and / or socially learned. Social learning happens as a protective learned behavior. She has seen others behaving in particular way in stressful situation and that is was she her learned response to any stressful situation. The good news is that we human being have a capability to re-structure our response through our will and freedom of choice. I believe as she regrets her bahavior later and feel sorry. She will be willing to see someone who could help her learn and restructure her stress response mechanism. Any behavior modification technique along with some stress management tools will help her. Look for some one in your area as she might be more comfortable talking to someone in person. Both of you need to keep both patience and faith. Your love for each other is what help you sail through this tough time. If you can't find someone I will be available for telephonic consultation and intervention. In that case feel free to send me personal message. Wishing you both much success and fulfilled life togather.

I was a bright student since childhood I was a topper .but since last two years even can't pass in exams. I am in class 12 right now and merely 40 days are left for board exams which will indeed decide my future my entire life. When I sit to study my mind goes somewhere else and I don't even know when I got distracted. I study for long hours but then also I forget 80% matter studied. I can't remember things .when I sit in exam hall I feel a sort of tiredness a sort of sleepiness and so I can't even manage to pass I don't know how I got in this but I wanna get rid of all this. Also I sit for long hours but I can do very meagre very little study that's not enough to pass in board exams even most dull students are far ahead of me I feel very sad and my parents do not know all this is happening with me please help.

Every moment is precious for you now, as only 40 days are left for your exam. Rather than wasting your time thinking of the consequences of the exam, utilize the remaining time to the fullest & put your maximum effort in your preparation. Take the following measures to improve your concentration & prepare well: •Make a study routine giving maximum time for studies. Also give adequate time for sleep, rest & relaxation. Between studies you have to relax also. This will help in sustaining your interest & concentration. Try to stick to your routine. At night look back how much you could follow the routine & reward yourself if the day was productive & to your satisfaction. In the form of reward you can give little extra time for relaxation next day, watch TV or spend some with internet, eat something you like, meet a friend etc. Encourage yourself daily. •Revise your lessons regularly. •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Group studies & group discussions are also helpful. •Do not try to memorize blindly. Try to understand your lessons. •Write down the main points & form mnemonics from them. Mnemonic devices are techniques which help to remember something. It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. •Have a plan to manage your time of study. Make a routine for studying. Study for 30-45 minutes & then take 5-10 mins break. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •During these days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •Every morning relax yourself adequately before you sit for studies; go for a walk, spend some time with nature, go for a walk, do yoga, breathing exercise or relaxation techniques. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. All the best for your preparation & for your exam. Give your best.

Dear, memory loss problems are due to old age, dementia or amnesia. You have not given your age, but I assume you are not aged or have amnesia. There are memory tests available to determine your memory. Please post a private question to me with all the details. I am happy to help you. Take care.

Hi Lybrate user, The medicine should be started at lower doses and increase the dose gradually based on the response. Significant weight loss is observed in the patients treated with this medicine. Frequent monitoring of body weight is necessary. Any changes in the body weight should be reported to the doctor. This medicine should not be discontinued abruptly. It may cause withdrawal symptoms like dizziness, sleep disturbances and anxiety. Do not stop the use of this medicine without consulting your doctor You can eventually stop this medicine but not all of a sudden You can do yoga, pranayama and meditation for relaxing your body and mind Get involved busy every time. Eat healthy and avoid all junk food. Regular exercise is must You have to report this to doctor via message/ call asap.

How can I quit smoking. I have tried over the time but could not control with myself.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
All patients should be assessed for (1) smoking status, (2) motivation to quit, and (3) motivators for and barriers to quitting. Smoking status includes current smoker, ex-smoker, or never-smoker; type of tobacco used; and frequency of use. In terms of motivation to quit, smokers can be classified as immotives (no plans to quit), precontemplators (plan to quit but not in the next 6 months), contemplators (plan to quit in the next 6 months), and preparers (plan to quit in the next month). Common motivators to quit are health concerns, effects of smoking on others, and social pressure. Treatments for smoking -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- psychosocial therapy behavior therapy social support pharmacological therapies bupropion (zyban) nicotine replacement therapy second-line pharmacological therapies read this well.
