We got married 4 years ago. Why do my husband gets angry/misunderstands whenever he do mistake and I try to explain him what went wrong. because I do not like him to be getting insulted or pointed out by someone in his acquaintance. (I never explain him with anger/with raising voice)? If I keep quiet, that will create some other problem to us.

I suggest you that please consult with marriage psychologist for brief history of both the side need a proper evaluation done by the expert. It's about how you and your partner see the world or situations. Happiness is within us. Check what is disturbing you and your partner we all have our highs and lows in life. There are many ways and solutions that expert provide you depending upon your problems. Where you are stuck in your life .There is goal setting for relationship, relaxation improving Depressed and your loneliness. Through these techniques all your problems will be solved. This starts a cycle of depressed and not being able to work, you stop enjoying. You can take help of a Marriage psychologist who can help you in overcoming your lack of interest and breaking this pattern /cycle and also go in for the therapy's, couple therapy to help in feeling relaxed. Goals and Objectives of Couples Therapy The primary goal of any couples counselling is to increase your understanding of yourself, your partner, and the patterns of interactions that have become detrimental to the relationship. Once these have been explored and understood, you are taught how to change your feelings, thoughts, and actions, to change ineffective or destructive behaviors into positive ones that will enhance your relationship. Most people enter couples therapy believing their partner is the one who needs to change. They have spent years denying or ignoring the major problems in their marriage, or trying ineffectively to change their partner. This is a big mistake, and the longer these behaviors have been maintained, the longer the therapy will take. You will both need to be willing to change yourself, and to work as a team. When it comes to improving your relationship, your attitude toward changing is more important and crucial, than what action you take. Identifying what to do, and how to do it, is the easiest part of couples therapy. What involves real work is confronting yourself, and figuring out why you don't do it---what is holding each of you back from becoming the partner you want to be in the relationship. The essential skills needed to engage in successful couples therapy are: 1. The capacity to envision a better life together. 2. A capacity to work together as a team. 3.The motivation to change, even when it gets difficult. 4. The capacity to speak from your heart about what really matters. 5. The capacity to engage in the process of reflection and non-judgmental inquiry. Key points to remember: ATTITUDE IS KEY. CHANGE YOURSELF - NOT YOUR PARTNER. CONFLICT PRODUCES GROWTH. MANAGING CONFLICT LEADS TO A HARMONIOUS RELATIONSHIP.

I am very stressed because of studies and it is affecting my sleep cycle? What should I do. Please help me.

I am very stressed because of studies and it is affecting my sleep cycle?  What should I do. Please help me.
There is no pill for this but you can follow these tips which can be helpful: • Drink lots of water. At night, as you study, keep water at hand and sip it regularly. • Avoid tea and coffee. Yes caffeine will wake you up and give u a buzz right away .But once the effect wears off; you will feel even more tired and sleepy than you were before. This happens because these drinks dehydrate you. • Have a balanced diet: Eat a heavy and healthy breakfast but have a light dinner. If you feel hungry at night, eat fruits, dry fruits, and salads only. Avoid junk food. • Take a 20-30 minute nap during the day. This shall help you to concentrate better. • As you study, whenever you feel tired or sleepy or even stressed, take a minute to practice yoga- breathing exercises. Concentrating on your breath can help bring more oxygen to the brain which will in turn wake the body up and help clear your mind to study better. All the best!

To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

I am 51 years high tension and not able to concentrate in my work and job, Smoking as increased and want to stop all this. What should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The tension means that you are not handling your emotions well. Meet with a counselor to sort that out. Your smoking will give you a false sense of control because nicotine is a mood modifier​. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Doctor I am a chain smoker and I wanna know foods which will help my lungs to counter smoke effect. As I am trying to quit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is no foods specific to helping you counter the tobacco smoke effect on your lungs. You may however take the following measures to improving your lungs and as well as quitting smoking: When you smoke you damage your lungs: when you smoke more you damage your lungs more: and if you smoke less you damage your lungs no less – well may be a little less. Your desire to smoke less is most welcome but it is not enough. You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse.

But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Dear lybrate-user. This is a common eventuality and you don't have to worry much about that. The situation will continue to haunt you for some time unless you engage yourself in your normal activities. Don't worry. Ignore it for the time being. Take care.

10 Tips to Help You De-Stress

Rent a funny movie, go to a yoga class, keep a journal — these proven stress relief methods work. Not only will you feel better, but you’ll be happier.

These days it seems everyone is living and breathing stress. Trying to undo the tension can just add more stress if you take the wrong approach. But there’s no need to do that; there are many healthy, proven ways to get stress relief.

Here are some tried and true tips to get stress relief:

Exercise
“Run, do some yoga, punch a bag at the gym,”. Exercise is a way to manage stress that doesn’t have to add to your financial woes. For example, a 20-minute walk or jog around your block can yield up to 12 hours of improved mood. The main thing is to find a physical activity that you enjoy, whether it’s dancing or fly fishing.

Socialize 
Spending time with friends and family who give you a sense of belonging, purpose, and fun may provide all the stress relief you need.

Write
Dedicating a period of time every day to write about a situation that is bothering you may reduce tension and give you stress relief for the rest of the day. Keeping a journal can also help you solve problems or find positive angles amongst the stressors.

Laugh
Laughter really is the best medicine. It is proven to lower tension, and at the same time, improves blood flow and the health of your heart. Rent a funny movie or hang out with that wannabe-comedian pal, and forget about your worries for a while.

Take care of yourself
W'hen tension spikes, it can be tempting to put yourself last — but prioritizing healthy eating, physical activity, relationships, and sleep is necessary if you want to avoid making your stress worse.

Get some fresh air
If you are cooped up inside all day, take a few minutes to get outside and see the sun. A little time in the great outdoors can improve your mood and help you relax.

Be kind to yourself
Think about positive affirmations daily. Thinking negative thoughts only makes you feel bad and will increase stress. Tell yourself you are doing a good job, and believe it!

Meditate
Practice deep breathing and meditation exercises daily, and when you feel tension rising.

Be thankful
Showing thanks for your family, friends, and loved ones and being thankful for the positive aspects of your life has a calming affect. Not only does it give you perspective, it makes other people feel good, too.

Make a change
Sometimes the best way to obtain stress relief is to remove your source of tension. “for example, if you are in a job working at a certain pace in an environment that is objectively painful because of your boss, coworkers, and so on, and you’re doing it because you can earn 10 percent more money than doing something else, you could calculate that you might be better off doing something else,”.

Many people turn to unhealthy choices in an attempt to cope with tension, says goodstein. These include:

Substance abuse
Smoking
Overeating
Drinking alcohol to excess
Gambling


Even a seemingly harmless source of stress relief, such as computer games, can add to your problems if it cuts into the time you need to take care of yourself. Chances are that if you play computer games more than seven hours a week, you could be losing two hours of sleep a night — which will actually add to your tension in the long run. If you notice that you are starting to depend on unhealthy sources of stress relief and you can’t make a change on your own, seek help.

Some stressors are chronic and unremitting. “you may want to take a broad overview of your life to see if you have allowed yourself to be encumbered by factors that are making your life unpleasant.” if so, consider making a lifestyle change.

If you’ve been hiking, socializing, and taking care of yourself and you still have high levels of stress, talk to your doctor. Your tension could be a sign of another health issue.

Remember, you don’t have to live with tension. In fact, not only is tension unpleasant, but it is unhealthy. Keep trying out stress-relief techniques until you find the ones that work for you.

I have been smoking cigarettes so please help me mujhe cigarette chodani he muje solution dijiye.

Psychologist, Pune
Hello congrats that you want to quit smoking have you decided finally then do not wait do it now. Apni zindagi pyari hain na? sahed apne haath main hain. Internal damage dikhta nahin to precautions abhi se le lo. Bahut paani pina chalna jyada apne aapko kisi ache kaam main lagao. Gardening reading cooking etc jo accha lage ga woh karo. Ek ghante ka alarm lagaye. Roj khud ko thx bolo ki aap kamyab rahen. Shuru main peppemint ki goli khaye dheere use band karo. Change your associations related to smoking bahut jaroori hain.
