You report of having dreams almost 3-4 times every night. Also you admit remembering them vividly in your short span of sleep. This itself suggests your lack of restful and relaxing sleep. A tense and anxious mind with a burden of sleep lag would eventually land up having more of rem sleep, causing dreams to be remembered. I would advise you you have 7-8 hours of restful sleep daily. For relaxation you may try deep breathing exercises, yoga or meditation too.

One doctor told me that, if weight is lost due to chronic anxiety or stress, both LDL and hdl will fall. So my mind forces me to take anxiety or stress to reduce LDL cholesterol. I'm underweight, my weight is losing. But many doctors say that if weight is lost due to anxiety, hdl will decrease and LDL will increase.

Counselling will not work if the person is resistant. He will also not listen to you if you try to persuade him. He will only get more obsessed. Try to understand what he likes about the lady. Talk about the repercussions of his actions when he' s in a frame of mind to listen to you.

I am an alcoholic and drink almost a full bottle of rum when i drink can you please help me out in getting out of this

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I cannot believe that you can consume a full bottle of rum besides being a diabetic. There must be a printing mistake. Anyway you could be killing yourself and very fast at that. You definitely need rehabilitation immediately, where they will first take you through the detoxification process, to remove all the toxins related to alcohol. This will lighten the physical craving to a large extent and enable you to then do the follow up course of rehabilitation through the 12 Step program. If you have a family, they will be asked to attend some sessions both with you and independently, to facilitate their role during and after the recovery program. Besides the diabetic illness, other health parameters will need to be examined and treated. A psychological assessment is advised too. The rate of relapse is rather high but an alcoholic who has ?hit rock bottom? is ripe for intervention. If you are there, then your prognosis in your very first attempt at rehabilitation looks encouraging. This is a situation that cannot be treated without a residential setting for the best outcomes. This itself will be used by you to claim inability for various reasons and is part of the denial mechanism used by alcoholics. So do not show resistance to the proposals initiated by the recovery therapists, and just comply, for your own good and for that of others who are surely affected.

Hello sir I'm sandeep l want to know how to concentrate on study and remember capacity of my mind.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could be under some stress and you may not be aware of it. Meet with a counselor and deal with the stress to really enjoy good memory. Memory is preceded by concentration. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 all junk food.

At 21 you have smoked and caused a heart problem? You must have smoked quite heavily. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous 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. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also 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. 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good to hear that you want to stop alcohol, alcohol can damage liver, liver is one of the main organ in our body it produces enzymes from food which we eat, do not stop at once try to reduce quantity first and then frequency (if you are drinking daily make it weekly twice for 1 or 2 months then stop slowly).

Yes it is sign of depression. But you have chance to overcome yourself. Sad thoughts comes means you are thinking internally so many problems. May be family problems or work problems. Whatever it may be but you are thinking too much about it. Because of your internal thinking process. Externally mood swings time to time and sad thoughts also. That means you are not share your internal thoughts to any other person or friends or family members. Always thinking yourself. But it is not good to your health. Because of secrecy nature. You are suffering with psychological problems. If you want you should overcome it. So better to share your internal feelings with your close friends and family members. Do not be alone. Do not think alone. Talk with friends in a pleasing manner, express your doubts and problems. Take the help of friends. It is always good to you. Feel always comfortable. Eat good food. Walk more time. Sleep right time. Create your own entertainment channels. Think always in a positive manner. All the best. My best wishes.

Hi, I am a lawyer and my profession requires lot of numbers to be remembered like sections acts etc. I was always scared of maths as a kid and due to this I opted for commerce as a subject but again in accounting I hardly could score passing marks and since then its d same scenario I never took it seriously before but for d past few months the more I try to mug up sections the more I tend to forget everything. Today morning my teacher asked me few sections in the class all I could remember is lot of pages flipping in my mind but not the answer and I was sweating all over inc heartbeats as if I could literally hear my own heartbeats and also shivering. I don' t even remember phone number of my family members or frds. Have my judicial exams coming m scared can' t loose it just because of numbers please suggest. Hope thrz nothing serious about it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have been avoiding math for too long and now it has grown up on you as an essential part of all that you do. I think that it is now causing you so much anxiety that it is affecting even the memory of phone numbers! you must get this fear and distaste for math out of your mind, first. These are just figures and not complicated calculations where you need to use formulas and formats. Just calm down and take in the fact that you just have to remember numbers, not calculate with them. The fear (to a point of phobia) is actually crippling you. After you have calmed down and accepted math as an integral part and parcel of your daily life, learn some very effective techniques to developing a statement with the words to recall the figures. Say for example, you have a file reference as follows: plo 1930/2015. You could make a statement that reads something like this: the palestinian liberation organization can, in one shot, love nine israelis and take thirty pot shots this year at golf (the underlined letters become your clues to the figure to be remembered). This statement may not make much sense but it is meant to be so that it will enable grasp the imagination, and to be captured in memory. You may also use this variant: plan to lie to my older son at nineteen before he becomes thirty, this year itself. You may also use an audio sound recall by reciting numbers with chosen pauses and have an audio memory that is easily recalled: e. G. 9448113793, audio memory could be recited as follows: nine, double four eight, double one, three seven nine three. I don? t know if you got the drift. Sometimes you can arrange the numbers in such a way that it is easy to recall (again it is an audio skill): 9341255060, to be remembered as nine, three, four, one, twenty-five, fifty, sixty! it will be easy to memorize such variants. There are many more you can learn from some teachers. Talk to counselor to eradicate the fear, the block in the mind, and to appreciate math and not fear it.
