I have a negative thinking problem during exams which affects my results very badly, what should I do?
Hello its natural to feel anxious during your exams. But everything should be in balance. Too much of negative thoughts will lead to feeling anxious and will affect your performance. Try some visualization exercises or meditation. You can follow deep breathing exercises followed by few visualizations. You can make use of positive self affirmative thoughts. Take a card and write positive self affirmations like" I have prepared well for the exams. I am a hardworking person. I know the subject well. I will do my best and will get good marks. Read these statements early in the morning and before going to the bed and try to motivate yourself. You can also include any recreational activity to distract yourself from those thoughts and it will also elevate your mood. All the best. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, depression is not a serious problem, most individuals have depression from mild to severe. Depression can be solved depending upon individual's confidence and emotional balance. He can get rid of depression, poor sleeping habits and constant rumination due to some incident. First should bring him out from his own world, he should see, feel, perceive everything the way a normal person feels, perceives, sees. First find out what he likes the most, each and every individual has got an habit or an hobby that can become crazy, should make him addictive to such an habit like reading, watching or hobbies like swimming, gardening should praise or encourage them to perform such actions slowly trying to divert them. You can of course send them to gym or aerobics it is an good approach to bring out depression or remove depression within him. You allow him to outburst his depression by allowing him to cry, shout or scream aloud in a room, it is an other way to bring out depression away from him. Slowly he will heal as time goes on within an month or two months definitely. Suggest you make him follow these steps one by one slowly and make him occupied with good entertainment and then he will be fine. Hoping for good. Best wishes and regards,

Can anyone help me to quit smoking. As I smoke about 30 cigarettes in minimum plzzz help me out quitting this.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

You’ve decided to quit smoking. Congratulations! Your first day without cigarettes can be difficult. Here are five steps you can take to handle quit day and be confident about being able to stay quit. 1. Make a Quit Plan Having a plan can make your quit day easier. A quit plan gives you ways to stay focused, confident, and motivated to quit. You can build your own quit plan or find a quit program that works for you. Check out SmokefreeTXT, QuitGuide app, If you don’t know what quit method might be right for you, visit the Quit Smoking Methods Explorer to learn more. No single approach to quitting works for everyone. Be honest about your needs. If using nicotine replacement therapy is part of your plan, be sure to start using it first thing in the morning. 2. Stay Busy Keeping busy is a great way to stay smokefree on your quit day. Being busy will help you keep your mind off smoking and distract you from cravings. Think about trying some of these activities: Get out of the house for a walk. Chew gum or hard candy. Keep your hands busy with a pen or toothpick, or play a game in the QuitGuide app. Drink lots of water. Relax with deep breathing. Go to a movie. Spend time with non-smoking friends and family. Go to dinner at your favorite smokefree restaurant. 3. Avoid Smoking Triggers Triggers are the people, places, things, and situations that set off your urge to smoke. On your quit day, try to avoid all your triggers. Here are some tips to help you outsmart some common smoking triggers: Throw away your cigarettes, lighters, and ash trays if you haven’t already. Avoid caffeine, which can make you feel jittery. Try drinking water instead. Spend time with non-smokers. Go to places where smoking isn’t allowed. Get plenty of rest and eat healthy. Being tired can trigger you to smoke. Change your routine to avoid the things you might associate with smoking. 4. Stay Positive Quitting smoking is difficult. It happens one minute. One hour. One day at a time. Try not to think of quitting as forever. Pay attention to today and the time will add up. It helps to stay positive. Your quit day might not be perfect, but all that matters is that you don’t smoke—not even one puff. Reward yourself for being smokefree for 24 hours. You deserve it. And if you’re not feeling ready to quit today, set a quit date that makes sense for you. It’s OK if you need a few more days to prepare to quit smoking. 5. Ask for Help You don’t need to rely on willpower alone to be smokefree. Tell your family and friends when your quit day is. Ask them for support on quit day and in the first few days and weeks after. They can help you get through the rough spots. Let them know exactly how they can support you. Don’t assume they’ll know.

Hi, females usually have plenty of mood swings due to hormonal imbalances, especiallly during this age. Apart from this, if there are some stressors like family issues, love issues, or stress at the office, which you are finding difficult to handle, you need to share them with either your friends or family and try to sort out the things with them. Make sure your work is not affected. In case your problem is slowly affecting your work, then probably you need some professional help.

Hello doc. I'm a 15 years old school going girl. And I've been having nightmares constantly for a week, to say. It's kinda awkward to tell. It's like I'm used to them now but sometimes they're so dreadful that I feel like screaming aloud in my bed (In midnight, it's so not okay you see). Last night I saw someone die before my eyes. And the scene is still lingering through my mind. Some of the dreams include being chased in a graveyard, ghosts roaming around in my house, and then this. A death and the spirits. I'm scared to death. I can't sleep. I don't want to sleep. But that's not possible of course. So please help me out on this. I don't wanna have those nightmares again. It's making me sick. Mentally sick. I want to go to a psychiatrist but I can't. For my parents think psychiatrists treat only a mentally retarded person.:(Please help me out. It's the only beam of hope I see.

HI lybrate-user, Bad dreams can be very unpleasant. Apart from being an uncomfortable experience, they can also interrupt sleep. Nightmares can have many causes, but the main causes are stress and trauma. Thankfully there are some steps you can take to stop these nightmares from occurring, allowing peaceful and restful sleep to return. Follow these methods to avoid having these nightmares in the first place. Don't dwell on your nightmares. Even though they may be truly terrifying and stick with you, try your best not to worry about them. Allowing them to cause your more stress and fear will only increase the likelihood of more nightmares in the future. Try to focus on positive life events instead of fear and worry. Thinking of a safe space or a loved one will help keep your mind in a positive space. Think of how much better your sleep is becoming now that you are improving it. Don't take your worries to bed with you. As much as possible, leave any fears or concerns behind you as you lay down to sleep. Dwelling on these negative things as you fall asleep will only increase the likelihood of having a bad dream. As you fall asleep, focus your mind on the rhythm of your breath. Gently and naturally, follow your inhalations and exhalations with your mind. If your mind wanders, refocus on your breath. Focusing on your breath will allow your thoughts to pass by without disturbing your sense of calm. Try not to dwell on any thoughts as you fall asleep. Let your thoughts pass by without focusing on them or making judgements about them Practice visualizing a safe space. If you feel too stressed or find yourself focusing on negativity, try imagining a safe space. By visualizing a safe space, you can find relief from the source of your anxiety for a time, allowing you to return relaxed and refocused. Find a real, physical space that you can get comfortable in. Start to imagine your safe space. Your safe space can be any place at all, real or imagined, that makes your feel secure and relaxed. Use all of your senses in your imagining of your safe space. See, hear, smell, feel, and maybe even taste your secure and safe space. Be aware of your body and any tension you are carrying. Release and relax that tension as you enjoy your safe space. Be in your space for for at least five to ten minutes. When you feel relaxed, slowly return by opening your eyes and calmly sitting for another minute. Use imagery rehearsal therapy. If your nightmares have repetitive elements or happen frequently, you can use imagery rehearsal therapy to rewrite your bad dreams. Follow these steps to take control of your nightmare: If you have a recurring nightmare, write it down in detail. Make any changes you want with your nightmare or write an entirely new dream that you want to have. For example, if you encounter a monster in your nightmare, try changing it into a kitten. Before bed, and throughout the day, imagine your new dream with the changes you made. Visualize the new narrative and remind yourself that this is how the dream is now. Be confident that this new dream is the one you will experience instead of the old nightmare. There are a multitude of additional potential causes. Examine the following possible causes of your nightmares to see if any of them are applicable to your situation: A new drug prescribed by your healthcare provider. Certain medications could cause nightmares as a side effect. Interactions with existing prescriptions and any new medications could also be responsible. Ask your doctor about any new prescriptions and if they may be responsible for your nightmares. Drinking too much alcohol. Alcohol consumption can cause nightmares by interrupting deeper levels of sleep, when dreams often occur. Reduce alcohol consumption to improve sleep quality and reduce the frequency of nightmares caused by heavy alcohol usage. Eating just before going to bed. When you eat before bed, your metabolism increases, keeping you awake and preventing you from having deep, restful sleep. Avoid any snacks before bed to sleep better and lower the chances of having a nightmare. Illness with a fever. Being ill, especially with a fever, can interrupt sleep patterns and cause nightmares. After you recover from the fever or illness, your nightmares should reduce in frequency. If they do not, talk with your doctor and look for another possible cause together. Stopping certain prescriptions. Ending your usage of a prescription, with a doctor's order, can be responsible for nightmares. If you are experiencing nightmares after ending a prescription, ask your doctor if this may be responsible and what to expect as you end the medication. Your nightmares may have common elements or will be exact repeats of previous nightmares. If you have the same nightmare consistently there may be unique causes behind this type of nightmare. The two main causes repeating nightmares are: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). 71% to 96% of those with PTSD have been found to have may have nightmares. PTSD is caused by a terrifying event, either witnessed or undergone directly. Severe anxiety or depression. Suffering from either severe anxiety or depression can cause repetitive nightmares. Work with your doctor, therapist, or counselor to help reduce your anxiety or depression, which will in turn help to stop your nightmares. Improve your sleep. Take actions to make the quality of your sleep improve. Poor sleeping habits can make nightmares more likely to occur. Take some of the following steps to help get a good nights rest: Get regular exercise. Exercise helps you fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. Limit caffeine and alcohol. Both can reduce the quality of your sleep. Make time for activities that you enjoy. Practice meditation or relaxation techniques. Have a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday Make your bedroom a place for sleep only. Don't do any other activities in your bedroom that would be counted as “waking” activities. By mentally establishing that your bed is a place for sleep and rest alone, you will be able to fall asleep more quickly and more deeply. Avoid any activities, even simple ones such as reading or watching TV, while in your bed. Only go to bed when tired and ready for sleep. See, You are not alone. Nightmares are extremely common, affecting eighty to ninety percent of people at some point in their lives. Most often, a counselor or psychologist will help you to overcome your nightmares and you can consult me for same. All the best Hope it helped.

STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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. Take care.
