The Counsellor will help your friend to give an outlet to his suppressed emotions. The Counselling process will also help your friend to understand what is happening to him, what is causing all this and how he can cope up with this situation.

I have been in a relation with a guy who after one month of relation told me that his family has already fixed my marriage to his Bhabhi s sister due to family issues. And he is from a very rich family background and small caste . And he respects his family a lot and scared of his family. I had told him that u have to try for me in ur family and convince them . And now he told me that he asked abt me in his family but they said no and he has to marry that girl.And he was veri firm on it. What should I do? should I be rigid to convince his parents or jus be silent . Now its been 2.5 years v in a relation. And v had an amazing compatability

Please gracefully accept the fact that you are no longer a contender for the post of his wife. You tried your best to convince him and he did not budge. That is not your or his fault. Circumstances are to blame and there is no use blaming circumstances. Concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

Coping With Anxiety!

Coping With Anxiety!

Coping with anxiety: diet can make a difference:


Anxiety symptoms can make you feel unwell. Coping with anxiety can be a challenge and often requires making lifestyle changes. There aren't any diet changes that can cure anxiety, but watching what you eat may help.

Try these steps:

  • Eat a breakfast that includes some protein. Eating protein at breakfast can help you feel fuller longer and help keep your blood sugar steady so that you have more energy as you start your day.
  • Eat complex carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are thought to increase the amount of serotonin in your brain, which has a calming effect. Eat foods rich in complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains — for example, oatmeal, quinoa, whole-grain breads and whole-grain cereals. Steer clear of foods that contain simple carbohydrates, such as sugary foods and drinks.
  • Drink plenty of water. Even mild dehydration can affect your mood.
  • Limit or avoid alcohol. The immediate effect of alcohol may be calming. But as alcohol is processed by your body, it can make you edgy. Alcohol can also interfere with sleep.
  • Limit or avoid caffeine. Avoid caffeinated beverages. They can make you feel jittery and nervous and can interfere with sleep.
  • Pay attention to food sensitivities. In some people, certain foods or food additives can cause unpleasant physical reactions. In certain people, these physical reactions may lead to shifts in mood, including irritability or anxiety.
  • Try to eat healthy, balanced meals. Healthy eating is important for overall physical and mental health. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and don't overeat. It may also help to eat fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, on a regular basis.


Changes to your diet may make some difference to your general mood or sense of well-being, but they're not a substitute for treatment. Lifestyle changes, such as improving sleep habits, increasing social support, using stress-reduction techniques and getting regular exercise, also may help. Be patient, as it may take some time before these changes have an effect on your anxiety.

If your anxiety is severe or interferes with your day-to-day activities or enjoyment of life, you may need counseling (psychotherapy), medication or other treatment.

I'm a boy of 23 years old. Sometimes I get disturb on loud voice or noise unless it's music or anyone talking to me loudly. Sometimes I get disturb when I feel like huge crowd or noise or traffic of all the good or bad memories, thoughts, dreams etc since childhood at once constipating in my mind. This also cause a pain in my brain/inside head. This is the actual reason of my mood disorder. How to get rid of it.

Whatever you experience is 'sometimes' therefore Don't worry because it happens sometimes as you have mentioned. If it persists then it is a matter of concern. Don't label yourself having mood disorder. Let psychologist decide that. You seems to be over sensitive about your bodily experience. Relax at the moment.

Get yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist in order to rule out any possible undergoing mental illness as soon as possible. I think you are in an initial stage if it is so. Early intervention is always better.

I want to quit smoking what's the best medicine to quit smoking. Please help I am willing to quit smoking. Do reply soon.

Lybrate-user. Smoking habit is not difficult to quit if you really decide to. When you smoke, initial 2 -3puffz are required ones and then you csn throw it away. So this way you can half the total number of cigarettes per day. You csn abruptly stop it but with a consultation of a doctor. Behavior therapy plays important role. There are medicated nicotine patches which can really take care of your cravings. You should avoid clues of smoking. E. G do not hang out with the frndz who provoke smoking try to resolve cobflucts which can increase your smoking. Start following meditation and yoga which will take care of your stress and ultimately smoking. Make a diary of number of cigarettes smoked pet day and gift yourself when you reduce the number. So take care!

I am 23 year old female, from past 4-5 months I feel overwhelmed by the stuff around me, I consider people's opinion alot whether it's positive or negative and over think about it which puts me off .I have so many things on plate right now and unable to concentrate on them and do it dedicatedly. When am at work am usually occupied but when am back home my mom is the trigger for me, she is always harsh in her words all though I know she never met to be, b it it's really upsets me alot.

You need to let go of certain things, and not take everything too personally. As far as overthinking is concerned, try to relax yourself through some breathing exercises. Whenever, you start overthinking take 6 - 10 deep, slow breaths per minute for 10 minutes each day. When we overthink, everyone around us sounds harsh in their words and less sensitive toward our needs, however that is just the result of thinking too much. Just relax, breathe and let go off certain things and you will be fine.

Sir I nees to improve my memory skills. Am forgetting name which = I heard. I can not remember much more days. How can I overcom this sir.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are aware of any kind of stress then meet with a counselor and sort that out. You will experience a lot of improvement in memory. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: 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.
