I am very emotional I cry in a little thing suddenly. How I overcome this problem?
Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of cherryplum + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose).

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a relationship/life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Hello try to modify your schedule. Start your day with morning walk and exercise. This will help you to feel fresh. Take good healthy diet. Form a study time table. You can take help of study organizers. You can write number of chapters to be learnin one column and then make adjacent column naming them learn, then revised 1, then revised 2. Whenever you finished learning 1 chapter put a tick. When you are finished with revision 1 put another tick. This will help you to get an idea about your preparation and will increase your confidence. Goal setting can also be another technique, you can set goals like need to complete 1chapter within 1 hour. Tell yourself that you will not leave your preparation between. After achievement of your goal reinforce yourself by engaging into likeable activity. All the best. Please feel free to give your feedback. Take care.

I am 26 years old. I had a baby in 2011 n my doctor had asked me to eat calcium tablets for six months but due to some tension n stress I had those calcium pills for not even one month after delivery. N no proper diet. I always feel weak n dull. Never felt fresh after baby so now should I start some calcium supplement available in the market or what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Of course you should take them, even now. You must have a proper diet because you are suffering from malnutrition. In fact I suggest that you take a multivitamin and multi-mineral as supplements. It is better if you took vitamin d3 along with calcium, which is how it is found anyway. You may also eat a lot of greens, expose yourself to some sunlight every day, and do some weight-bearing exercises, for a natural way to good health regarding calcium uptake.

My brain memory is too loo. I want to increase my memory power. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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.

It sounds like you are the one consuming this cough syrup! cough syrup addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend na meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to cough syrup. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. To be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

Hello! I'm a 19 year old guy and have started to smoke from the last 8 months. I spend a lot of money in cigarettes and therefore I want to quit! What shall I do to stop smoking?

M. Phil In Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Dear lybrate-user, its good that you realised that addiction is way to monetry loss also. And at this young age these addictions are common. First try yourself to quit it. But not suddenly. As your body will crave for nicotine as it will need its dosage. So better slowly lessen your intake. If you are taking 10cigs a day. Reduce the no. To 6-7. When ever you go to buy the cig. Think once what can be the other things you can do apart from this.

Dear user. You need to sleep at night. Our body is tuned to sleep at night and if you change the habit forcefully now, it could be troublesome. I suggest you find solutions for the distractions instead of forcing body mechanism. That will be better. Take care.

You should not get so depressed if a friend does not spend time with you. If you become so dependent on her for your wellbeing, then you are in danger of being rejected by her and at her whim and fancy. If you are spending time with her, then she is with you at that time, isn't it? If she is talking too much on the telephone, then just walk away clearly indicating that you do not appreciate her bad manners. However, if she knows that you are dependent on her, she will play a lot of games, especially 'playing hard-to-get'. I suggest that you make more friends and circulate around for your own good and for developing good socializing skills. Perhaps this is a sign that there are some needs in you that wants to be met. Talk to a counselor and explore that angle to become less vulnerable and more independent.

Three years is a long time for the effects of the breakup to continue to linger and depress you. That was your first mistake and hopefully, last too. Never get into a relationship, hoping for it to end up into a lasting one or even into marriage. All relationships are like trial-runs. Use it to learn how women operate, how they think, how fickle or strong they are in commitments, what happens to you around them, etc. Having learned from one person you move on to another a somewhat learned person and check how the next one functions. You will be surprised that there is so much to learn and understand that it is very naïve to get deeply involved with the very first person you meet. Falling in love is a lovely state as long as it lasts smoothly. That is why breaking up is so difficult, especially, if it is decided by the other person. Divorcing after several years of bed and board, with kids to boot, and departing from each other can be devastating. So it was better that you did not enter matrimonial obligations and then had this fallout. This incident must be treated as a learning experience. There is no remedy but that you carry some wisdom into the next friendship and be perceptive and also prudent in choice. Don’t waste time brooding over this girl. Move on quickly and dispose of all associations of hers and do not frequent places you two visited. In other words take her out of your system and environment and in no time you will get over her. I am assuming that fortunately you did not get into intimate relations with her. Even if that had happened, nothing to worry about. If you are worthy, she is the loser. Look at the positives, and get into circulation with other friends quickly. Hiding your depression and sadness is not advisable – talk about it and deal with it soon.

Her problem is OCD. 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. All the best.

Hello. I have schizo affective. I feel and see myself as very ugly. Is it a part of my illness? Some kind delusion or hallucination.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, it can be a part of the disease. There will be a very distorted self-perception and is connected to the disease especially if you suffer from the fear of rejection. Schizoaffective disorder is a very complex and difficult disease to treat, even with medication, which I presume you are on. All psychotropic medicines have side-effects: that is inescapable. But I suspect that you are depending entirely on medication when in reality you need to combine it with counseling or therapy. In therapy you will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. You will also learn about emotions and how they can impact your condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip you for life. Talking and sharing about the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand yourself and moderate your responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training your mind. Exercise must be a regular part of your life for various reasons. Put yourself on a productive and strict schedule. The idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure, and more so for a schizoid.
