Dear lybrate user. Dreams has nothing to do with past, present or future life. They are just illusions of your subconscious mind. Do not take those dreams seriously, because if you take them seriously, you will loose your present too. Ignore them. Once you ignore them, they will not come again and again and disturb you. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Dear, some of the behaviors you have described fall into the category of psychotic symptoms. This means your suspiciousness towards your wife and son, the sounds/music that you hear, and other similar behaviors where you doubt intentions of other people - these behaviors indicate that you are displaying symptoms of schizophrenia. However, you also mentioned feelings of worry, anxiety, anger and guilt. These emotional symptoms are making your condition worse and they are also maintaining psychotic symptoms because during these peaks of nervousness, your voice hearing increases. This is leading to a never ending chain of severity. Generally these symptoms of suspiciousness and doubt develop due to lack of social skills and poor reasoning ability. You may be facing difficulties in knowing intentions of others towards you. You do not trust others in general. You are not able to develop attachment with others easily. This may have been present since your childhood. You feel left out and believe nobody cares for you. Feelings of guilt and rejection are some of the signs why you have got these symptoms. You also mention some poor concentration at work and day to day life. This is also common in schizophrenia. You need to consult a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist to relieve these symptoms. Please consult some specialist as soon as possible to prevent your condition from getting worse.

Anger - How To Manage It?

MBBS, Structure of Intellect learning Specialist
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Anger - How To Manage It?

Anger is among the gamut of emotions we exhibit as a reaction to a situation, and it is a 'normal' emotion too as long as it is kept under control. Some people have the propensity to explode when pushed to the extreme. They keep swallowing their emotions until they can finally do it no more, and erupt like a volcano. Others dealing with extreme anger are like a ticking time bomb. You'll never know what you unwittingly say or do can trigger an explosion. In either case, anger that cannot be controlled comes with a physical reaction.

Your heart beats faster preparing you for both action and reaction. Your breathing quickens. You may clench your fist, tighten your shoulders and go into a defensive position. The problem arises out of the fact that it is almost impossible to feel anger and empathy at the same time. An angry person is seldom sensitive to the well being of his victim, and hence may lash out verbally and sometimes physically. Such things done in the heat of the moment mostly leaves us with regrets. So here are a few ways to deal with extreme anger.

  1. Acknowledge it: The first step in solving a problem is recognizing that you have one. The fundamental problem here is that people believe they are on the right track and refuse to budge from their views. It is essential to realize that this step is not about deciding whether you are right or wrong, but acknowledging the fact that your reaction to the situation can be channeled in a better way. When getting someone to acknowledge their anger problem, be careful as to not use negative words like wrong, false and shouldn't. Instead, influence with positive words like can and should. Instead of saying 'You are wrong to react like this', you can say, 'I understand what you are feeling. Is there a way we can resolve this situation?'
  2. Recognize the signs: Once you know that your problems exist, you can try devising ways that will work for you in dealing with the situation. You can count to 10 to calm yourself or simply decide to not speak until you can calm yourself. Knowing that you may enter into an argument in a situation, you can list down the points that you feel strongly about and discuss each of them one by one. Working your way through a finite list gives a better opportunity to reach closure at the end.
  3. Find ways to let it go: Not all arguments end in closure. A lot of unsaid justifications cloud our mind repeatedly leaving us seething from the inside. Research has shown that the neurological anger response lasts less than two seconds. Beyond that it takes a strong will to stay angry. Once you realize how much your anger is consuming your mind, decide to free your mind with meditation and other calming exercises. Tell yourself that some people and issues simply don't deserve your anger, emotion, reaction or time.

If you or someone you know is suffering from anger management issues, consult a doctor today.

You are first of fooling around with medications: if the doctor has prescribed it then it was for a good reason. If you have attacks in the future the doctor will certainly give you more. Panic attacks are fear based, and you will tend to exaggerate the response to the stimulus. What happened when these attacks started may have some bearing on your state. The other possibility is that your constitution may have undergone a bit of change favoring the negative side. If you have been on prolonged stress quite unaware to yourself, then it is possible that that stress may have lowered your defenses. Any which way you look at it, your response to fear is not normal and therefore the panic. Work with a counselor: medication is not enough to help you process these emotions and to deal with it so that it does not escalate in this manner. You will probably not show any signs of medical problems because the effects have not yet reached physical proportions. It will though, if this situation is not brought under control. The quicker you work on this in therapy, the easier life is going to be. Constant and persistent stress will lower your immune system that you may develop other complications. You seem keen to sort this out and that is good motivation. Now work at it with hammer and tongs and sort out the fear. For your constitution I advise a lot of exercise, meditation, eat healthily, sleep adequately, pray with faith, love people and yourself, and be positive. Combine medication with counseling and you will get best results. If you want to be free of medication then in counseling you will develop new skills and techniques to deal with life's issues and can come off of medicines for good.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Hi. I am male 22. I get scared when I see people now a days. I am suffering from depression. For that I am consulting a psychiatrist now. But I am still not able to come out of this. Specially if it is the opposite sex. I freak out. Please suggest me how do I come out of it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The fear of people has to do with your lack of social development. We are all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. But if there has been poor exposure and skills around people, we become very intimidated. Surprising we are into relationships all through our lives, yet we fear people. In your head you are probably comparing yourself and worrying whether you match up or not. You may feel inferior and inadequate around them. When it comes to a girl it can get very complicated because of the sexual connotation. The depression has a lot to do with this fear. I suggest you do a personality development course and a personal grooming course too. Meet with a counselor for your depression but also deal with your emotions, extensively. The distortion about people and especially girls will also be dealt with as you develop yourself. Go to a gym and do some body building and feel your image develop into a tough and strong young man. I hope you are studying well too? education can boost your self confidence. Do a lot of deep breathing exercises to calm yourself down. The bottom-line is we all want to be loved and to love. Learn this very important need of all humans: love people. Where there is perfect love there is no fear.

I was very good at studies in school and college till 3rd year. Then I fell in a one sided love situation with a friend of mine and it was very depressing for me. I lost my spark I used to have in studies. As a result I didn't get any job still after 3 years of completing college as I am not able to study with heart and soul as I used to do before I developed feelings for a friend of mine which was quite a tragedy in my life. What should I do to regain my spark back to study as I used to do before and put my life back on track. Please help.

Hi, lybrate-user Love can be compared to a strong, habit-forming drug The Two Sides of Unrequited Love. As such, it holds the "possibilities of agony and misery" when feelings are not returned, the authors explain. Just as there are methods for coping with withdrawal from a controlled substance, there are ways to deal with the heartache of unreciprocated romantic feeling. Avoid False Assumptions Much of the pain associated with romantic rejection doesn't have to do with the lack of reciprocation, but with the false assumptions that people attach to the experience of rejection, "Psychology Today. Cognitive distortions such as overgeneralizing and personalization can contribute to negative feelings that can be difficult to manage. Keep in mind that when your feelings are not returned, it is not your fault. In fact, the person you are focusing on may not even know or appreciate the real you, Nicholson says. Keeping this in mind, move on, remembering that it takes time to find the right person and that you may need time alone to find healing before moving on in a new relationship with another person. Acceptance Focus on what you can control, advises social psychologist says Changing Your Stripes. When it comes to attraction, other than being your best self, there is nothing you can do to truly influence another person's actions or feelings. Accept that for whatever reason -- almost certainly something that has nothing to do with the size of your thighs or an unfortunate haircut -- the person you desire simply doesn't share your feelings. Shift gears and think about how to work on improving yourself so that when you do meet the right person, you'll be in a place where you can fully appreciate the relationship and have healthy interactions. Respect When you have strong feelings for another person, it can be almost impossible to accept that they don't share at least a little of the same desire. However improbable it may seem, you must take her at his word. Respect the boundaries that She has set. If She's told you that She's not interested, don't call or stop by. When you see her, give her his space and resist the urge to give her an enthusiastic hug or snuggle up close to her. Distraction While attending your younger cousin's school play doesn't begin to compare with the joy you would feel while going out with the girl you are enamored with, it is what you must do to get your mind off of her. Rather than regale your best friend with yet another tale of how you're convinced she might yet be the one, accept all invitations that come your way. It's better to be distracted watching a figure-skating competition with a friend than to sit home contemplating what might have been and what will never be. I suggest you need more proper evaluation in relationships. Consult a psychologist. Our Everyday Life. How to Deal With One Sided Feelings" Accept, move through and move on"

Dear Lybrate user, 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me.

Stammering is a normal phenomenon it happens to all in different speaking situations. Stress, fear, anxiety increases it. But god gifted us with something called coping mechanism to cope with different life situations like fear, stress etc. If we lag to cope with different situations causes stammering and it eventually increases and becomes a problem. So you need to strengthen your coping mechanisms. Be confident. Speech therapy along with counselling sessions will be of greater help. Consult a good speech pathologist. Take care.

For practical purposes you can try to gt married to someone who is understanding and helpful. But right now I can give you study tips to do well in your exams. If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Hi,I'm addicted to internet. Due to this I'm facing serious problems. I'm unable to focus on studies. How to overcome from this problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to identify what it is in the internet that you are addicted to: facebook, twitter, emails etc. These are all social sites and the most likely reason you feel addicted to them is that they provide a platform of interacting, without facing them, and getting much desired attention. This is usually an indication of the need for attention, which you may not be receiving adequately from your family and immediate circles. In other words, if you get good attention with some excitement, you will be able to give up this addiction rather, easily. Then, there is the problem of obsession and compulsion to want to do the net, leaving you little choice but to continue the behavior. You could also be covering up another deep need in you that is being met by being occupied and distracted into something else. Sometimes, it is related to a deep-rooted pain that needs some therapeutic attention. It will be good for you to attend some counseling in this regard. If you stayed away from the internet for 21 days, you can, to some extent, overcome the tendency. Then, you need to spend another 7 weeks reinforcing this new behavior. Most addicts are very intelligent people and it is sometimes their frustration that they are not getting what they deserve and are capable of, that leads to a lot of disenchantment in life: the addiction somehow gives them some outlet for that frustration. The addictive behavior has an element of being destructive too and so you need to address that drive in you to choose life instead of death! this is well dealt with in the script issue, then, there is the rigid value system, and some contribution from some genetic influences that may seem unrelated but will have an influence. These can be addressed through counseling, and must be kept up for nearly three years to completely resolve it. You need to find alternative interesting activities and create a new set of friends and social circles. Get into a tight time-schedule and fill it will mind and body occupying activities. Exercise must be an integral part of your daily life too. Sleep well and eat healthily too. Look at your career and see if changes need to be made in that area of your life. New study courses and skills set can be acquired to make some important successes in your professional life: most people from good families, successful careers, and good jobs have a faster and better recovery from addictions!

stress always have negative impact on our personal, professional n occupational life. Dreams is a mirror of unconscious mind. In other words, whatever we tend to suppressed in our mind, gets released through our dreams. Now you need to work on releasing your negative thoughts by practicing different relaxation techniques - Deep breathing, OAM chanting, listening instrumental music, yoga, stretching exercises. It should be practiced as frequently as you get unwanted thoughts. when mind is positive and stable, you will be able to get sound sleep.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.
