Don't try to board two boats at a time. If you enjoy smoking, continue to do the same but with a slight added attention. Whenever you are about to smoke, just be aware of the whole process, right from feeling it between your fingers-putting it between your lips with attention on tobacco smell- to lighting it and most importantly being aware of smoke entering your mouth and filling up your lungs, also see the picture of smoker's lung picture on the cigarette box at the same time!

Smoking Kills

BDS
Dentist, Sagar
Tobacco users are likely to die 15 years earlier than their peers.

Tobacco contains nicotine, the more you use it, the more your body craves for it. Tobacco use can cause cancer of head and neck, lungs, leukemia, stomach, kidney, pancreas etc. It is a major causative agent for gum diseases.
So honour your life given by god almighty, value your life and quit tobacco use in any form.

Within hours of quitting
1) B. P. Drops
2) Oxygen levels return to normal

Within days of quitting
1) Sleep improves
2) Breathing becomes easier.

Be wise, choose life, not tobacco. It is never too late!

I am unable to keep cool myself in some situations I feel very tensed during exams. Kindly help me Wat should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Some amount of fer is good during exams to motivate you and get you to prepare for ti. But if you let it overwhelm you, you will get stressed and that will affect your memory. Anyway you can do the following to help you both with calming down and remembering: 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.

I'm exposed to substances at work that worsen my asthma what can I do to prevent this and also I want to quit my smoking habit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should talk to your employers about this situation and they are compelled to provide a safe work environment for you. If it is a private organization, you should be careful because not many of them care and your job may be at risk. Even so it is possible to provide an atmosphere of clear and clean air for your work environment, if you requested. But worse than all that is your smoking habit and your employers may become indignant if you continue to sabotage your health with this bad habit while demanding clean environs from the organization! This is a dangerous combination. Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus and your asthma is a respiratory illness. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here?s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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. 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Hi I am 24 year old, I feeling anxiety and nervous every time. My hands all shivering. Please advice me.

M.A-Philosophy, Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling, B.A.M.S
Psychologist,
Hi I am 24 year old, I feeling anxiety and nervous every time. My hands all shivering. Please advice me.
Dear, you can control your anxiety and hands shivering by deep breathing. When you are anxious your breath is faster, you have hyperactive sympathetic system. You can consciously change it by starting deep breathing. You should inhale for four seconds, dont hold breath and exhale for six seconds. Again inhale and exhale. Do it for three minutes, you will be more relaxed. When you breath slowly sympathetic stimulation get reversed. You can do it anytime anywhere because it is not pranayama. Pranayama has some restrictions. You van practice deep breathing regularly in morning and evening to get accustomed to it. I can help you to remove unnecessary anxiety by personal counseling and coaching. all the best, you can overcome the problem easily. I am with you to help. Take care Dr. Yash velankar.

Start making a note of things that need to be done . When meeting people write down the keywords of the meeting in a diary/ notepad that you should carry everywhere- this will help you recap on whatever you have discussed and promised to do. Start your day with reviewing your previous commitments.

Due to various reasons many people faces this type of problem and as much you will think about this topic you will feel more nervousness and anxiety ,just consider one thing that no one is perfect in this world, every one has some weakness although the weakness can be of different types such as you are feeling nervousness in front of peoples ,some feels nervousness in front of their Boss and some feels nervousness in front of their teachers. So whenever you go in public don't focus on others just divert your mind on someother topic such as you can initially talk with some one with whom you are not so comfortable during talking on phone, or you can divert your mind on some topic which is more problem creating for you ,by doing this slowly by slowly your confidence will build up, the main concept is you should distract your mind from that situation. You can take help of counsellor regarding this .if you need my help you can contact me. Take care.

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

Discussions and consideration of ailments begin and end with those which pertain to the physical health of an individual. Matters of the body are inevitably prioritized over the matters of the mind. However it goes without saying that your overall well-being is as much dependent on your mental health as it is on physical health. However, there are few simple measures which can be undertaken to beat the depression blues.

  1. Exercise: What works for the body may also work for the mind and exercise is a leading example of that. It is recommended that every day you set aside at least some time for exercising. It will not only benefit your physical constitution, but will also keep your thoughts away from the issues which are tormenting you in the first place.
  2. Converse: It is a given that depression alienates people, drowns them in solitude. However, seclusion is merely a temporary refuge, one that can hardly benefit you in the long run. Hard as it may be, try talking to people and engage in conversations with people. In the course of the conversation, try putting into words what exactly you are suffering from. Reaching out for an extended arm goes a long way in recuperating from this condition.
  3. Meditation: When you suffer from depression, you inevitably are, in the process, trying to grapple with plenty of tumultuous issues. It is imperative therefore that you find a way to calm your mind and there is no other way to do it than indulge in meditation.
  4. Find a confidante: When suffering from depression, it is crucial that you find yourself a confidante. It is important to talk to others but it is perhaps more important to find the right person. Irrespective of your relationship with him or her, by all means find a confidante in whom you can unflinchingly confide.
  5. Break monotony: Monotony not only triggers depression but in most cases, breeds it. It is important therefore than you break the monotony. If not a drastic change, go for small changes initially and try to change your daily routine as much as possible.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

In order to help you, it'll be necessary to evaluate what sort of thoughts you experience repeatedly. These repeated unnecessary thoughts can be at the root of your sleeping difficulty too, so sleep medicine might not be an appropriate long term solution for your problems.

Like you aptly described it you are living in a dream world. Your mother has done a marvelous job and you should not let it all go to waste by living in a fantasy world. Wanting to be rich is not a bad idea but expecting it to fall in your lap is just not on. All rich people have worked hard, and some of them without qualifications. You on the other hand are well qualified and you now need to go out and face the world. May be mom has been too protective around you and you have become lazy because of that. Plan your every day and chalk out a course of action with long term goals, and set up the short term goals to achieve those major objectives. I also suggest that you do an aptitude test and seek career guidance from a counselor to identify what you are made for and get serious about attaining them. The best reward you can give your mom is to give her a new lease of life: she is the one who should now live a life of comfort and enjoy your earnings. This cannot be done by living in an unreal world.

His hemoglobin level is high but the bigger concern is his fatty liver. He needs to address his alcoholism immediately. If he is not willing it will become more difficult. But then he has no choice in this matter. He may be taken by force to the rehabilitation center after he is drunk or something like that if his wife gives her permission. The center themselves may come and pick him up. They will also address the high levels of hemoglobin as part of the treatment.
