Dear, jealousy is no mental disorder and is an emotion. Jealousy is an emotion like anger, grief etc. Everyone are emotional. When an emotion comes we either vent it out or control. Best option is to vent it our or learn to live with the circumstance. Don't worry. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Quitting smoking will never affect health. Instead, quitting smoking will improve body functions and overall mental function. Take care.

My exams r coming closer, so what should I do to increase my concentration level?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your age may be a factor because you are going through the fag end of your adolescence. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: 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.

Sitting in class with teacher teaching ,me trying to focus; but I gets distracted by the movements of students nearby. While looking at the whiteboard, I feel like I can see 180 degrees. I also feel affected that I should not do that and as a result I end up not looking at the whiteboard and thus becoming poorer at academics. The neighbouring students feel like I am looking at them indecently (at their private parts which I do not want to) and all this causes headaches and increases my anxiety levels to a next level every week.(i wear glasses. Tried medication from youtube but it effect lasts for some time .after that terrible mood swings occur .i am in constant analysation .can not do even a basic thing (which I used to do 2 years back) without pondering over it. I just want to get over it as I feel like I have ruined my life Please help doctor ?What should I do? What the average time by which I would be able to overcome this?

You seem to be experiencing symptoms of depression. You talked about poor concentration which is a symptom of depression and low mood. It seems you are getting hopeless in yourself. You look around yourself and only things you notice in yourself are social anxiety, embarrassment, and pessimism. You seem to be having feelings of guilt and shame. You feel you are unworthy and helpless. Your efforts are not helping you and your energy levels are reduced. Overthinking is a coping and problem solving strategy which depressed individuals use most often. But this strategy is fruitless. You only stress yourself by thinking too much and get headaches or tensions. Please consult a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist before your depression gets severe.

Your depression is due to your unfulfilled desire [ that your husband do not like you] . May be this is your thinking and things are not like that, Many men could not express their love to their spouse this does not mean that they don't love. Think positive and you will see that every thing happens according to you. Depression in mother affects the behavioral development of child. So try to expel this from your life.Do meditation daily. Divert your mind in some creative activities.

If you continue to withdraw, you will easily get into a depression, which is worse to deal with. It does not matter what the college did last year, it really matters that you take your life and future into hands and do something constructive. The college will never be affected by your actions: you are hurting yourself only. So give up on your anger and ego and go and finish your studies. You are at the very fag-end of your academic performance and can easily jeopardize your entire life by your stubbornness. If it is still difficult, meet with a counselor who will probably advise you on the same course of action I recommend. April is just a few months away and will pass by quickly. Go and finish your last year successfully. Anyway you will have to complete your studies and dealying it further will be a lifelong regret for you.

I am 25 years old, I had my first panic attack on 2nd oct 2016. (my grandma has passed away in sept 2016 at age of 76 she suicided, yet no one knows the reason but she used to say I ll die soon before her death and doc gave her depression tablets, they was no use. I was fine for a month, later I had a small argument with my husband where I told you depress me always. I was thinking over it and that day was my first panic attack took place like I started thinking am I depressed and what even I ll suicide that day onwards till nov 28 I used to get sweat hands and shortness breathing n all. I visited a psychiatrist he suggested me nexito 10 mg after a week I refuse to take as the reviews on net showed they r addictable. I do not want to rely on tabs anyway. Later I joined meditation and zumba and my anxiety reduced to a great extent but thoughts of death and if I see old people I get a feeling they ll die soon how r they still happy? How r everyone happy as they know they ll die one day. That time I get a short breathing prob for secs and m fine in notime. But at times I get a feeling m not enjoying my life thinking about all this cause before I was a brave girl a university topper never feared for anything and now I get a thought its better to die instead of such disturbance n very next sec I say to myself m not a coward no matter what I ll search for solution. Now can I overcome it forever without medication? Or else if I take nexito will I get addicted to it? And r they any chances of getting anxiety again in future? N hows hypnosis or nlp help me?

You are topper and bright student you should trust the process of psychiatric treatment. For sure you have anxiety and it could be Obsessive thoughts also ruminating about past and fear of death. You need to check with a psychiatrist again and give full account of your symptoms. The medication will go on for an year like antibiotics have course so do medication in psychiatry and if you leave in between you may relapse. These medication ate not at all addictive and have no side effects the only effect it will have is your betterment. NLP hypnosis has little role in your treatment. You can however go for psychotherapy cognitive behavioral therapy for ehich you need to consult a psychologist. You can consult me for same. It seems you have co morbid depression also get yourself treated asap. All the best.

Foods That Help Fight Depression

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Foods That Help Fight Depression

Turkey

e traditional Thanksgiving bird has the protein building-block tryptophan, which your body uses to make serotonin. That's a brain chemical that plays a key role in depression, researchers say. In fact, some antidepressant drugs work by targeting the way your brain uses serotonin. You can get the same mood-boosting effect from chicken and soybeans.

Brazil Nuts

This snack is rich in selenium, which helps protect your body from tiny, damaging particles called free radicals. One study found that young people who didn't have enough of this nutrient in their diets were more likely to be depressed. The researchers couldn't say that low selenium caused depression, though. Just one Brazil nut has almost half your daily requirement of the mineral so be careful to limit how many you eat. Other foods with this mineral include brown rice, lean beef, sunflower seeds, and seafood.

Carrots

They're full of beta-carotene, which you can also get from pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Studies have linked this nutrient to lower levels of depression. There's not enough evidence to say that it can prevent the disorder, but it can't hurt to get more in your diet.

Coffee

A jolt of caffeine can be a pick-me-up that helps you feel more motivated. But if you have postpartum depression or panic disorder, some studies suggest that it might make your symptoms worse. Other researchers say a cup of joe can lower your risk of getting depression, though they're not sure why.

Leafy Greens

They're packed with folate, which your brain cells need to work well and which may help protect against depression. Food manufacturers in the U.S. add this vitamin, also known as B9, to enriched grains like pasta and rice. You can also get it from lentils, lima beans, and asparagus.

Milk

It's a good source of vitamin D. If you have very low levels of this nutrient in your body, that can sometimes cause depression. One Norwegian study found that people who took a vitamin D supplement were less depressed a year later than those who didn't. Don't like milk? Boost the D in your diet with enriched cereals and juices, and canned fish.

Caution: Alcohol

It might seem like just the thing to take the edge off your worries or make you feel more social. But most of the time, it's best if you drink wine, beer, and mixed drinks only in moderation. You might feel better in the moment, but heavy drinking can make depression symptoms worse over time, because alcohol makes your brain less active. It also can make antidepressant medications less effective.

Caution: Junk Food

It may be fast and filling, but these processed foods can be bad news for your mood. Scientists have studied how diets high in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fatty foods affect how you feel. Many found some link between these unhealthy eats and depression. Your best bet: a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Dear friend, please introspect what kind of expectations from others are part of your thinking pattern. One gets angry when things are not going your way or people are not behaving as you want them too. You must realize that you cannot change anyone as they cannot change you. There is nothing wrong in throwing things as long as they are inexpensive and not directed at someone:) do not judge yourself on your short-tempered-ness, it will aggravate the problem. Sit back let things happen as they have to happen. Relax take a counseling session if you must! cheers.

You seem to have gone through a lot and still managed to do well for yourself. If you wanted to leave your brother and still maintain relationship, then you could have done it without the condition of him improving his behavior with you. Now he's probably feeling guilty as well as upset with you for wanting to change him. If you want to leave, then you leave citing reasons which are about you and not about him. Take responsibility for your decisions and then decide and leave. Also you must weigh your pros and cons of leaving the safety of your brothers house. You must think about your safety, finances etc before leaving his house. If you feel confident on these fronts then go ahead and leave. But the responsibility of your actions shouldn't come on your brother. You can still do well in studies if you live with your brother. It's in your hands. If you let it affect you. It will affect you. There is no guarantee that you will not face negativity somewhere else. It's all in the mind. Some people have done very well while living in very negative environment.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. Yes. The symptoms points to anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hello sir im 28 years old im suffering from social anxiety and often get panic attacks, what should I do.
Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too!!!! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good.

Suffering from depression for last few days. Getting pills. But no effects. Please help.
Dear lybrate-user, Anti-depressant medications typically take a couple of weeks to show their effects. Also, depression can be handled by other methods such as psychotherapy or advanced counseling. I think that at this time you need to be a little more patient and wait for a few more days. Then, an increase in dose, change of medicines or psychotherapy may be needed depending upon the situation. In any case, the ventual outcome shall definitely be favourable. Don't worry, take care!
