I feel tensed when things not happen in our way, particularly in night think lot about those things

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
A lot of things will not happen your way in life. This is normal. As you are getting upset about this, it could be that you have control issues. You see, we would all love to take matters into our hands and know for sure that it gets done, accordingly. But that would be too easy whereas life is difficult, actually. So it is in your best interest that all things do not happen as per your wish and that every situation must and will be a challenge, mostly. You need to learn to accept this fact of life and live with it. The way to achieve this is recommended by scott m. Peck in his book, the road less travelled: discipline. He says don? t try to change the fact of the difficulty but instead adopt discipline as a tool. He suggests four tools: cultivate the ability to delay gratification; be dedicated to the truth; accept responsibility; and develop flexibility and balance. These are very practical and effective. Why get tense when life is like this any way! instead, learn to cope with the above mentioned tools. If control is an issue for you, you are probably very scared and do not trust; therefore the need to control from fear. Deal with your fear and you will also be fine with letting things be. A counselor will certainly help you much in this pursuit.

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. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear Lybrate-user, Thanks for contacting us. Losing somebody close truly hurts and it's normal to feel very sad and depressed after such a loss. Connecting to others might help you cope with the pain though, so instead of keeping to yourself try to reach out. Don't deal with this pain alone. Is there anyone you feel you can talk to about this? Maybe someone close to you experienced something similar or also misses the person you're missing? They might need you as much as you need them. Seeing a psychologist in Kaithal, might help you process your grief, otherwise don't hesitate to contact us for an online session. All the best!

Hi Vishnu, Since you are a medical student yourself, you are aware of the Sleep and wake cycle of your body. The only way to get your normal cycle back is by starting to sleep at the normal time and try and wake up at the normal time according to your schedule. The most important part in this will be stick to your schedule. It will take atleast a week for your body to get used to this new cycle but it will happen.

Treatment for smoking and drinking varies according to the degree of addiction. Some medicines, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, lozenges etc should help tobacco craving. You, being a good loving and affectionate wife should be able to motivate him to quit smoking and drinking. Take care.

What are the symptoms of of cancer? From five days I was suffering from wooophing cough is that a chance of cancer? I have habit of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may have what is called a 'smokers cough'. But since you are worried I suggest you can go for a test by consulting your doctor. For the symptoms of cancer: Lung Cancer Signs and Symptoms (Sourced from Medicinenet.com) Lung cancer is the most common cancer in men and the fifth most common in women, even causing more cancer-related deaths in women than breast cancer. The incidence of lung cancer is strongly correlated with cigarette smoking, with about 90% of lung cancers arising as a result of tobacco use. Symptoms of lung cancer are varied dependent upon the exact location of the tumor and the extent of its spread. A person with lung cancer may have the following kinds of symptoms: • No symptoms - Up to 25% of people who get lung cancer do not have any symptoms when the cancer is found. In these cases the cancer is first discovered on a routine chest X-ray or computerized tomography(CT) scan performed for another reason. • Symptoms related to the cancer - The growth of the cancer and invasion of the lung and surroundings may lead to symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, and coughing up blood (hemoptysis). If the cancer has invaded nerves, it may cause shoulder pain that travels down the outside of the arm (called Pancoast syndrome) or paralysis of the nerves traveling to the vocal cords that leads to hoarseness. Invasion of the esophagus may lead to difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). If a large airway is obstructed, collapse of a portion of the lung may occur and cause infections (abscesses, pneumonia) in the obstructed area. • Symptoms related to metastasis (spread to other organs) - Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce excruciating pain at the sites of bone involvement. Cancer that has spread to the brain may cause a number of neurologic symptoms that may include blurred vision, headaches, seizures, confusion or altered thought processes, or symptoms of stroke. • Paraneoplastic symptoms - Lung cancers frequently are accompanied by so-called paraneoplastic syndromes that result from production of hormone-like substances by the tumor cells that are released into the blood. A common paraneoplastic syndrome associated with one type of lung cancer is the production of a hormone called adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) by the cancer cells, leading to over secretion of another hormone, cortisol, by the adrenal glands (Cushing's syndrome). • Nonspecific symptoms - Nonspecific symptoms seen with many cancers, including lung cancers, include weight loss, weakness, and fatigue. It is important always to consult a doctor if a person develops the symptoms associated with lung cancer, in particular: • A new persistent cough or worsening of an existing chronic cough • Blood in the sputum • Persistent bronchitis or repeated respiratory infections • Chest pain • Unexplained weight loss and/or fatigue • Breathing difficulties such as shortness of breath or wheezing My advise to you is to quit smoking whether you have any of the symptoms or not. Smoking is just very dangerous to your health.

Dear Lybrate user. You should always think about your past with pride and enjoy those days. But at the same time, you should make sure that those past thoughts do not make you worried. If they compare past with present and start worrying about your present achievement, there will be a lot of trouble. I suggest an online counseling for you. Take care.

A lot depends on how many hours you are already sleeping. Please remember that 7 hours of sleep is needed to retain good memory of what you have read. Despite that if you are feeling excessively sleepy, get a serum TSH level done. Also, make sure you sleep and wake up daily at reasonably fixed times. If the TSH levels are normal, certain medicines can be suggested to keep you awake for longer duration. Certain kinds of depression are associated with excessive sleep. I hope that you are not feeling depressed or sad all the time.

I am 27 age boy from bhopal please provide me a tip how to leave my smoking activity I had smoke daily I want to leave this Help me!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on your wonderful decision. 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.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course it will hard to remember many things at once. So you will need to stagger your learning to absorb what is suitable for your abilities. Break down your portions to smaller sizes and do some selective studying. Apart from that you may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: 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.

Its very common now a days with rapid changing society the gap is increasing day by day between parents and children and this gap may be in any form like for eating ,for dress, for group of friends etc. Neither you are wrong nor she is .may be there is some fear in her mind for something but one thing which you also cannot deny that she is your real well wisher. On your part its obvious we have to make ourself as the society and people around us .what you can do is to take help of any professional so that your point of view should also convey to your mother and her fear or any type of problem which she is not able to tell you she can clarify with that person.

Hi you need some cognitive behavioral therapy to do reality testing of your thoughts. Its not a big problem and you will cope with it soon. One advice for time being is whenever you feel stressed or even before sleeping. Do some creative visualisation. Take deep breath and imagine yourself step by step achieving your goals. Take pride in your accomplishments.

Hi my age is 20 and I am a college student. About a month ago I had severe panic attack during my flu and had to be rushed to the hospital. I was having shortness of breath with fever and other flu symptoms. We thought that it was an asthma attack or I was having some problem in my lungs since I was a regular smoker. However after few days all my reports were normal and I was released from the hospital. After a week I had the same thing and again I thought that I would just die. I was again rushed to the hospitals and this time they gave me shots of antibiotics and deriphyllin with some antacids. However after a few days when again my reports were normal I was suggested a psychiatrist and he diagnosed that I was suffering from anxiety disorder. I did not have any type of anxiety or panic before in my life so I refused to take the meds and decided that I will fight this on my own. One thing I observed that after eating full stomach I wud get severe episodes of panic or anxiety. Then I came back home and I was not better at all so I did a bit of my own research and found that when histamine increases in your body you can get anxiety attacks so I bought a cetrizine pill from the nearby drug store and ate it, I was feeling a hell lot of better the other day! so I told this to my doc and he prescribed me cetrizine for another 15 days. I also had blocked or stuffy nose so I was given levocitrazin hydrochloride and I had a weird tightness in my throat for which I was given some kind of gastric medicine. Those pills worked like magic all my anxiety gone I was feeling way better and started going out again. A mistake I did maybe that I started smoking again but very less like one cigarette when my friends were with me. I again caught cold without any fever and my anxiety was back. The cetrizine pills stopped working I am again having itchy skin however sneezing and itchy eyes are not happening and again my stomach is creating hell lot of acid and days and nights have become like hell for me. I can not eat because I get too much anxious or panicked after eating and my BP is too low. nausea DIZZINESS lightheadedness STUFFY NOSE AND CHOKING THROAT WITH ANXIETY AND SKIN ITCHING have become my day to day symptoms. I am not having fever. I am afraid to go out I do not have enough energy even to get my life straight. I am in a very bad place. I have given an allergy test whose reports are still to come. I also have ITCHY SCALP and sweat makes me itch more. I really need some advice. I do not even know which doctor to go to. I just want this misery to end.

Hi To overcome your anxiety, relax your mind. Don't think negatively. You have a negative assumption that after eating you will have panic attacks. Change your thinking. Think positively and give positive affirmations to yourself. Learn relaxation techniques and practice daily. Deep breathing will also help you. Develop good hobbies and engage yourself. Join yoga or pranayama classes. This gives you relief.

Dear doctor. I have sleeping disorder. No matter how much ever I try but I do not get sleep at all. Most of my days and nights goes sleepless. In a day with great difficulty I may manage to get sleep for only 2-3 hours. I am married since 8 months but I am totally ignored by my husband. My husband has even left me to stay with my mother and has no intention to take me back. He comes to meet us every week. But we never spend time together. This attitude of his is putting me in a depression. Whole day and night I keep crying and sulking about it. He doesn't even allow me to work. I don't have any idea what to do? Sometimes I feel like quiting my life. I tried speaking to my husband about this issue many times but he doesn't find this topic important and gives me deaf ears treatment. Which is very hurting. And I feel this is the major reason which is pushing me to sleeplessness and depression. Kindly advise what should I do?

Dear, you may think of your husband's behaviour as the reason for your sleeplessness and depression. Probably you need to think what had made him to behave that way. If it is something in you, you have to try to correct it. If it is not due to your behaviour, then you should plan your future with such a husband. What will he do, if you go for a job? in what way he is going to prevent you? just think of your life before 8 months. You had some goal and you were working towards it. Please catch up with it now again. Since you are already thinking of quitting your life, it is better that you consult a psychiatrist, get diagnosed and treated. She/he may treat you with antidepressant tablets, electroconvulsive therapy and/or talk therapy. It may take few months - but it is worth. You may have to go to psychiatrist repeatedly to adjust the treatment according to your need. You will back yourself before marriage. Your husband also will see a bubbling lybrate-userinstead of a sulking taniya. Who knows, he may visit you daily and even take you to his place, if he spends happy time with you.
