Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

I do not smoke weed regular. May be once in a whil but past few days I smoked it 4 times nd I even smoked cigarettes but in 15-20 day I have my medical test for merchant navy. Will it create any problem for me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No, it may not create any problem unless they are checking for weed consumption specifically. But this is a good eye-opener, do not smoke at all for your own good health. In your excitement of something happening you will want to enjoy that moment and will tend to consume more. Anyway, there is the problem of dependence and tolerance levels, which will grow over a period of time for everybody. You must just quit right away for your own good.

I am having mood swing issue, I easily get angry and depressed, what should I do?

Hypnotherapist, Reconnective Healing Practioner
Psychologist, Mumbai
Sit by yourself, close your eyes. Take 3 deep breaths, then just observe your breathing. Once you feel centred ask yourself why are you so upset, angry at yourself, your surrounding or situation. If you feel helpless reach out to a friend who you can talk with. Depression is a sign of holding within and not expressing yourself clearly. You are bottling up your frustration and that is creating anger within. Release it by excercising, walking in the park and spending time with what you really enjoy doing. Learn to meditate and most important make friends and spend time with them chatting and doing fun things. If you find doing all this difficult, reach out to a counsellor or psychologist.

Five Long-Term Effects of Alcohol Abuse:

When many people think about the problems that alcohol abuse can cause, they think about drunk driving and the effects it has. However, drunk driving is not the only problem alcohol abuse causes. Alcohol abuse can lead to a number of health conditions. In fact, alcohol abuse has been linked to at least 60 health conditions. Below is a list of the long-term effects of alcohol abuse.

Cirrhosis

Chronic alcohol abuse can lead to liver inflammation. This inflammation can eventually lead to a condition called cirrhosis. Cirrhosis causes scar tissue to build up in the liver. It is estimated that one out of 10 people who drink alcohol heavily will eventually develop cirrhosis. Keep in mind that women are more likely to develop cirrhosis than men.

Cancer

Many forms of cancer have been linked to excessive alcohol consumption, including liver, breast, colon and prostate. The reason alcohol use can increase the risk of cancer is because the body converts it into acetaldehyde. The acetaldehyde is a carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent.

Suppresses the Immune System

Excessive alcohol intake can weaken the immune system. This will make it a lot easier for you to develop a serious illness. People who have a weak immune system are at an increased risk for developing illnesses like pneumonia. In fact, getting drunk decreases the body's ability to fight off illnesses for 24 hours.

Heart Attack

Excessive alcohol intake can make it easier for the platelets to clot. This can cause blood clots to form, which can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. There was a study done in 2005 by a team of scientists at Harvard University that involved heart attack survivors. The scientists found that people who drank heavily were twice as likely to die.
Alcohol abuse can also lead a heart condition called cardiomyopathy. This condition causes the heart muscle to weaken, and the heart will eventually fail.

Depression

Many people drink to help themselves feel better when they are depressed. However, studies have shown that alcohol abuse can actually worsen depression. On the other hand, many heavy drinkers notice their symptoms improve after they quit drinking.
Alcohol abuse can wreak havoc on a person's life and health. It can cause a heart attack, cirrhosis, depression and cancer. It may also weaken the immune system.

I have memory related problem for 2 years. I have started mentat tablet from Himalayas. Is it is good for memory.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, can't tell you about himalayas tablets, but can give you surity for homoeopathic medicines which will improve your memory along with diet. Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear, 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. But here, you are rather seems to be depressed.

My guess is that you are probably not going for counseling in tandem with the medication. If I am right then please start counseling immediately and avail of the help you need to handle the daily challenges and stresses of a person in depression in order to cope with them effectively. Being in depression your sleep patterns will often get terribly disturbed. In fact I will not be surprised to know that your natural biorhythms will also be skewed up. The natural wake up cycle for the human is between 4 and 6 am. Many people who are depressed do not adhere to this regimen and the whole day can then become so out of sync that you will suffer jetlag-like stress and will not ever know about it. Do get back to the natural rhythm soon. You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep by going to bed early, 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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.

I used to smoke 2 cigarette per day from last 4 years. From last 1 month I quit it. I have join gym but my stamina is nt enough. Even when I run I get tired within 500 mt and feel like vomiting. I want to increase my strength and stamina. As soon as possible. Can you please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It will take some time for stamina and strength to develop. You will need to gradually increase your exercise. When exercising you must preferably choose aerobic exercise and always breathe through your nostrils during exercise. For strength development you will need to do some weight training. If you push yourself too much, you will feel like vomiting. When you wo0rk out you must also do it in a place where the air is clean. Deep breathing techniques may be learne dthrough Yoga too.

How to increase the brain learning capacity. I learn one day other day I forget it so any medicine is there to solve this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, 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. 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.
