Now a days although looks matters but what matters more is your being successful in life, so your age is to be serious regarding your carrier rather than for a girl, first try to reach a height where you know that she will not avoid you and this can only be done with your efforts in building up your future-------------it is very easy to love but most difficult to feed your family, to fulfil their demands-------------------------------so be practical and think practical---------------

I am 19 years old I am suffering with lack of concentration how to over come that problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 are 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.

Dear lybrate user, thinking about your life situations is good. But too much of anything is harmful. What is important is, how you look at all situations. If you are thinking only about what is happening and why and how it is happening, then probably you will feel stuck after some time. You may start thinking like - ok, now this has happened, what can I do now to get out this situation? and start working on that, only then you will be able to move forward in life. Everyone has ups and downs in life. Look around, you will find there are so many people who are in worst condition, compared to yours. So count your blessings. Look at others' lives who are doing better than you, find out how they achieved this, take inspiration from them. More importantly, cry when you feel like crying. Crying is not a sign of weakness, it relieves you of your sad feelings. Talk to someone who you have faith in. Share your burden of sad things with your friends/parents etc. Learn to let go of certain things. Keep moving ahead in life, acquire new skills, gain knowledge, take charge of your life. All the best.

Hello there are few specific techniques used in positive psychology to help you change any behavior. First of all you must realize and accept that any change will require efforts and time. There are no magic pills when it comes to behavior change. You need to practice patience and persistence. As a human being we have immense potential within us. I am sure once you are determined to make positive change with proper tools, guidance and support you would be able to attain your goal. Also it is always more effective if we put a goal of achieving something in stead of not having something. So think about what will happen when you are not agree. What will you gain when you are calm and in full charge of your emotion and action.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are under some stress. If you are aware of it then deal with it and things will be fine. This is called discounting behavior and will continue as long as there is this pressure. You could meet with a counselor and get some work done on discovering the stress and expressing the feelings associated with it.

I retired from Indian Air Force on 31 St Dec 2009. I feel like to be at home only. I do not feel happy to go out of my home. I go out only when it very necessary such as visit to hospital etc. I always search a company when I go out. I get anoide and irritated on very small small things such as while taking bath when soap fall down etc etc. I feel and it seems that I am very selfish and self-centered person. Please advice.

General Physician,
This is age related feeling and retirement blues. When retired you have lost the hectic old life and feel more lonely. You find time to read good books, listen to music, or make it habit to go to local club if any or a library where you may met persons of our liking and age. Do meditaion and yoga.

Hi, lybrate-user She is gaining weight due to hormonal and metabolic imbalance in body. Hormonal imbalance can be treated with right food and supplement. She had fat deposit on tummy or belly this indicates that she may have insulin resistance. The food which helps in balancing insulin resistance will help her in losing weight faster. All sugar based food is dangerous for this type of body. Protein diet will be suitable for her. Sample Diet Plan Breakfast – Cheese omelets with green salad. Lunch – Vegetables with salad. Dinner – Chicken/Paneer tikka with salad. Snack – Nuts with lemon soda. Suggest Supplements Microfruit tablets daily after breakfast Cytofresh tablets daily after breakfast Lipolyzer tummy tablet after lunch and dinner.

Dear Lybrate User, I understand. Here is a way you could build your self esteem and self confidence in the situations which are causing you fear and anxiety: - Pick one situation that is scary to you and work on facing it little by little, in small steps. For example, start with being in a crowded place that is not too confined for you, such as a mall. Then, slowly work your way up to more crowded areas and eventually the train. This should help reduce your stress and build your self-confidence. Once you are confident in this situation, move on to the others one by one. For more information and help, please consult privately. Good Luck.

When I study for exams I read well and get prepared for that but if I entered in to exam hall I can't remember what I studied for the exam I am getting lack of memory power.

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
HI lybrate-user It seems that you get nervous. When you enter the examination hall make yourself comfortable, take a few deep breath to reduce tension. Take your time to read through all the question's and instructions carefully. Pick the questions that relate well to your revision, and start writing. Don't think about result just do your best. For improving memory power try to involve yourself in reading! instead of just reading you need to read and think about what you reading and summarize it in your memory and make a short notes. Revise often and re- read to your notes as much as you can. Be sure to get enough sleep and eat healthy. All the best.

Sit alone is a dangerous thing. Do not sit alone. If we sit alone. Think about past and future aspects it leads to depressive thoughts. Sit alone with a good mood. When we have a problems. Alone thinking it is not good. As per your age it is not good attitude. When you feel fed up it is better to share your personal feelings with your close friends and family members. They will help to you to come out from this status. Directly or indirectly. When you express your problems. It will not solved to tell others. Atleast the severity of the problem reduced in your mind. So better to make a very good friendly relations with others. We are human beings we get so many problems in regular problems. Some one have capability to control their problems. Some may not. In this stage you do not have capability to control your thoughts. So better to express. Be friendly. Be think in a positive manner. Better to concentrate on your studies. Develop busy schedule. Ok all the best.

Viral fever takes 3-5 days. But if fever persist for long or associated with other symptoms like rashes/ nausea/vomiting/ severe headache/ breathlessness/pain in chest or abdomen etc then please update for further guidance or consult physician, as you may require physical check up & blood investigations. You can take tab. Paracetamol 650 after meals, 3 times daily (only if you are not allergic to the drug) for symptomatic relief. Drink plenty of water, take light but nutritious diet.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

NEGATIVE THINKING? DON'T DESPAIR, IT CAN BE CHANGED
When a person has been through difficult times like abuse, anger, fear, anxiety, alcoholism etc. In their lives, Often their mind starts having frequent negative thoughts and images which might say that “this the way life is and i cannot ever succeed in life and be happy”. The truth is that everyone has positive and negative thoughts as its normal. But some people tend to believe them as the universal truth and don’t see beyond the limiting nature of these thoughts. Such people will be fearful to make any changes in their life and often feel stuck in situations. They may experience an overwhelming amount of confusion and anxiety, which can be very detrimental in their wish to lead a satisfying and meaningful life.
For the person with social anxiety disorder (SAD), a social or performance situation may elicit thoughts such as "everyone can see how anxious I am" or "everyone is judging me". These thoughts often occur so automatically that the person is not aware of his pessimistic thinking.
People who are clinically depressed may experience bad thoughts more intensely, and view them as evidence that they are worthless or sinful people. The suicidal thoughts that are common in depression must be distinguished from negative thoughts, because suicidal thoughts can be dangerous.People who are depressed typically think in a biased, negative way. They have negative views of themselves (e.g. `I'm no good'), the world (e.g. `Life has no meaning') and the future (e.g. `I will always feel this way')

Negative thoughts like these have several characteristics. They are:
1. Automatic: they just pop into your head without any effort on your part;
2. Distorted: they do not fit all of the facts;
3. Unhelpful: they keep you depressed, make it difficult to change, and stop you from getting what you want out of life;
4. Plausible: you accept them as facts, and it does not occur to you to question them;
5. Involuntary: you do not choose to have them, and they can be very difficult to switch off.

Thoughts like these can trap you in a vicious circle. The more depressed you become, the more negative thoughts you have, and the more you believe them. The more negative thoughts you have, and the more you believe them, the more depressed you become. The main goal of cognitive therapy in counselling is to help you to break out of this vicious circle.

BECOMING AWARE OF YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
The first step in overcoming negative thinking is to become aware of your thoughts, and of their effects on you. Negative thoughts make you feel bad - anxious, sad, depressed, hopeless, guilty, angry. Instead of being overwhelmed by these feelings, you can learn to use them as a cue for action. Notice when your mood changes for the worse, and look back at what was running through your mind at that moment. Over the course of a few days, you will become more sensitive to changes in your feelings, and to the thoughts that spark them off. You may well find that the same thoughts occur again and again, because negative thoughts are repetitive in nature.

TYPES OF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
1.MENTAL FILTER: When we notice only what the filter allows us to notice, and we dismiss anything that doesn’t ‘fit’. Like looking through dark glasses and saying that everything is dark and gloomy, not seeing that its actually sunny without the glasses on. Anything, which is more positive or realistic is sieved, ignored, dismissed or we make excuses for. Eg. A change in job means more problems.
2.MIND READING: We assume what the others are thinking about us and decide that they see us as a dumb and stupid person. Eg. My boss thinks that I am not capable
3.PREDICTION: believing that we know exactly what is going to happen in the future. Eg. I am going to fail this test.
4.COMPARE AND DESPAIR: We tend to see only the positive aspects of other people and in comparison, we see only the negative aspects of ourselves. Eg. My colleagues are so knowledgeable and skilled, whereas I have just started my career. Surely, the boss will favour them!
5.CRITICAL SELF: Putting ourselves down, blaming ourselves for situations and events that are not totally our responsibility. Eg. My son failed because I didn’t sit down with him to teach him.
6.SHOULDS AND MUSTS: Thinking or saying “I should”, “I must” puts a lot of undue pressure on us, setting us up for unrealistic expectations from self or others and may not be in touch with reality. Eg. I must always agree to what my father tells me to do.
7.CATASTROPHISING: Imagining that only the worst can ever happen if something doesn’t go our way. Eg. If I lose this job, then I will never get another good job.
8.EMOTIONAL REASONING: Sometimes, we tend to get swayed by our emotions and take decisions based on them, not realising that the emotional reaction is not in scale with the reality. Eg. If I am feeling bad, then it must be really bad. Or if I am feeling anxious, then I must be in danger.
9.MOUNTAINS AND MOLEHILLS: maximising the negatives or minimising the positives in any situation. Eg. The last time I went to the toilet, i slipped and fell... I will slip and fall every time I will go to any toilet.
10.JUDGEMENTS AND EVALUATIONS: Making judgements about events, ourselves, others, or the world, rather than describing what we actually see and have evidence for. Eg. My friends are always critical of the way I look and behave. They have never liked me for anything.
11. BLACK AND WHITE THINKING: believing that something or someone can only be good or bad, right or wrong rather than seeing anything in-between or “shades of gray”. Eg. My husband has never taken care of me and he’s always listening to his mother.
12.MEMORIES OF THE PAST: based on the experiences of the past, which were traumatic, we decide that we are in danger in the present, causing distress in the present. Eg. My boyfriend cheated on me, now I will never date again...all boys are like that.

Don't despair, if you find that you have many of these thinking patterns. Most of us have them. Remember, that these are just thoughts and they can be managed. By being observant, we can learn to challenge them and create more optimistic and helpful styles of thinking, which will elevate our mood and reduce stress and anxiety.
Counselling is a safe space where you can discover your negative thoughts, challenge them and modify them to suit your current needs and environment. This can help you to get more out of your life making you feel more in control, accomplished and satisfied.

Feel free to message me on personal chat for any questions and appointments. I do face to face and skype sessions too.
