I'm undergoing a lot of depression. And a lot mental pressure problems! How to recover?
Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Depression is a treatable condition. You should consult a psychiatrist to get yourself evaluated first. Treatment with medications and psychotherapy will help you recover completely from depression. In addition, start exercising daily. Start ventilating your feelings and emotions with someone close on a daily basis. Start doing relations exercises like meditation and deep breathing daily. I do hope that you recover soon. Best wishes.

You cannot change your height anymore, period. But you certainly need to change your friends and come out of their negative influences. There is a famous saying, 'Tell me the friends you keep, and I will tell you who you are' This is the influence your companions have on you. Without their influence, you can be more and more the person you want to be. In the meantime, attend a personality development course, personal grooming course, public speaking course etc. And work at developing your personality. Life is extremely precious and if people hurt themselves for their defects, then all of us should be bruised badly.

I want to increase my memory and concentration. What I have to do ? I really wanna increase my memory. Help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear lybrate-user. Nausea is one of the most common symptoms of anxiety. Nearly everyone in the world can think back to a time when their nervousness made them feel sick to their stomach. It's an uncomfortable symptom that is extremely common when you're in nervous situations. Anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Since Vyvanse is an alerting drug, it may give some withdrawal symptoms. The whole day depression without variation during the day indicates that. So, Wellbutrin may not be able to stabilise your mood. However it is best for you to discuss this issue with your psychiatrist and get counselled.

What are symptoms of phobia? What are home remedies? What is diet? What is medical treatment?

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Phobia is different than fear. Mostly people are scared of water, dark, heights, insects etc. Such people may try to avoid such triggers. But this is only normal fear and this is not phobia. Phobia is a morbid and unnatural/irrational fear about something, experienced by some people only, which generally does not create such intense emotions in other people. E. G. If someone might be very scared to see a lizard to the extent that it almost paralyzes that person and can make that person dysfunctional for some time, then it is called phobia. Someone might be very very scared, just to see a piece of" cotton" - then this is called phobia. The triggers for phobia can be totally non-threatening. The general symptoms of phobia are: 1. Very intense, morbid fear about something which is non-threatening. 2. The person with phobia is almost paralyzed for some time, with the trigger. 3. Other people may not be affected at all by the trigger. 4. The person with phobia feels completely helpless at that time and behaves irrationally. 5. The person may experience increased heart beat, shivering, loss of voice, sweating etc. There is no specific diet for phobia. The best treatment for phobia is psychotherapy. A psychotherapist uses different techniques depending on the patient's emotional make up and needs and help the person to come out of it, systematically.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am 16 years old I want to know that how can I gain more and more fat easily and how to active the brain?
If it is really that important then you may increase your consumption of carbohydrates but make sure that you have a balanced diet too or you may take supplements to augment any vitamin or mineral loss or deprivation. For an active brain please do the following: 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 is 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.

Hi, Before you make an attempt to stop masturbating, there’s an important issue to deal with first. This issue is important because masturbation is a misunderstood addiction. Masturbation is normal and not unhealthy. It only becomes a problem when one gets addicted to it and it starts affecting his functioning in different areas of his life. You can not suffer physically or mentally because of masturbation but you can suffer because of the thoughts or stress you take as a result of being addicted to it. The immense pleasure derived from frequent masturbation can be extremely addictive. However, this addiction can become an obsessive activity that interferes with daily living. Furthermore, it may result in loss of sex drive, depression, or even impotence. To prevent these potentially severe side effects, we will reveal the ten most effective ways to end chronic masturbation. 1. Rubber band Place a rubber band around your wrist. Every time you get the urge to masturbate, flick the rubber band. This will eventually condition you to associate masturbation with the pain, thereby deterring you from the act. The mere thought of masturbation may even cease to cross your mind. 2. Distraction When you get the urge to masturbate, quickly engage in an alternative activity. Whether you pick up a book or go to the movies with friends, participate in anything that will successfully distract you from your masturbatory desires. 3. Therapy Do not hesitate to admit that you need professional help. Therapists offer beneficial coping mechanisms to help overcome chronic masturbation. Beyond recommending daily tools to break the habit, they also provide a supportive environment for open communication. 4. Help from loved ones If you have a romantic partner, be open with them about your condition. This should remove any feelings of guilt or shame associated with chronic masturbation, as you will no longer have to hide a "dirty little secret" from your loved one. 5. Replace that pleasure with a different one Find other pleasurable activities that bring you joy. Find an enjoyable hobby that requires your full attention. For example, if you enjoy art take a painting class. 6. Jogging Jogging and other forms of exercise are a great way to take masturbation off your mind. Jogging will require your complete attention - from listening to your heartbeat to inhaling each new breath of fresh air. Masturbation will have no place on the forefront of your mind. So the more you engage in exercise, the less time you will have to think about masturbating. Eventually, you may be able to overcome your addiction. 7. Yoga Yoga is an extremely relaxing activity. It requires you to concentrate solely on breathing and posture. This newfound focus should prevent obsessive thoughts about masturbation. 8. Evaluate your life Analyze your life. Determine what makes you happy and what does not. You may find that something stressful in your life is causing this chronic masturbation. Elucidating the underlying stressor will enable you to resolve it, ultimately allowing you to overcome the addiction. 9. A new friend If your chronic masturbation is due to intimacy issues, consider purchasing a pet as a therapeutic measure. They will accept you for who you are without judgment. They will provide you the companionship you may need to stop masturbating. 10. Speed dating This is an alternative solution to intimacy problems. Speed dating is a fun way to get to know a diverse range of potential romantic partners, without the added pressure of traditional dating. This can be a fun and effective way to ultimately acquire a new girlfriend or boyfriend, which may therefore reduce your reliance on masturbation. There are so many enjoyable activities that you will miss out on if you don't overcome chronic masturbation, so hopefully this article has provided you the necessary tools to do so. Always remember the key is self control. consult for more query.

For your first query, you apparently know that size does not matter yet you say that everyone wishes to have a large penis! You can't go around fulfilling your wishes just for the sake of it. Anyway, penis size cannot be increased. Sleepiness after intercourse is normal because of the effort and the feeling of fulfillment and tiredness: quite normal. To increase duration try out kegel exercises and if that does not help you could do with some medication. You may also try a second round of intercourse which will take a longer time. You could even explore a third time after sufficient breaks and that will surely delay the ejaculation.

Body and mind work together. When you are having increased heartbeats and feeling anxious you need to understand what is going on in your mind. You will have to analyse your thoughts and the feelings behind these thoughts. May be you are underconfident about your abilities or may be you are scared of somehting. Presently you are not realising what is happening to you. This needs to be explored. Talk to a counsellor, who will help you to understand your mind games and will help you to get rid of this anxiety.

Dear lybrate-user, your problem does not seem to be" overthinking" or" doing good things for others" on one end you say that you do not want anything for yourself, but on the other hand you expect appreciation of your good deeds. I think you need to start thinking rationally. Your" overexpectations" are irrational beliefs that need to be rationalised through counselling. Consult a ret therapist or a cbt therapist for counselling.

You can reverse this loss of stamina, if you leave alcohol soon. You should visualize how high you used to feel when you you were an athlete. Choose your highs and compare both the highs, choose the high of fitness, strength and vitality. Do it everyday, you are so young you can bring back your body to a good shape.
