Hi, Do some creative things like cycling, gardening before start studying. Always take a bath before study. While doing studying if you loss interest to continue you say your mind 'be here, be here, be here'it will psycologically support your brain. You can count below from 100 to 1 if you lost interest in studies. It also help to regain studies. All the best

Please read this & suggest me if this is a mental problem & if I need to go to a psychiatrist. Basically I am very hard working in daily work or physical work. But when I pick a book to study, I become very impatient, I start thinking about result or completing the topic or book fast & then make a plan or time table but I can't concentrate on study for long time. I feel some fear & tickle as -' If I couldn't do so then?' & ultimately I leave the study for many days to hide my face from that fear, tickle & impatience.

This depicts your nature. Although you are hard working but you are not a good finisher as you fumble when the task is about to complete due to anxiety going on in your mind. Actually you have a fluctuating mind and a number of things are going on simultaneously in your mind and this distracts your mind. So it is not a psychiatric problem but your problem is lack of concentration of mind and for that I will recommend you a homoeopathic medicine along with 10 minutes bramari pranayam twice daily so that you can control your mind so that it works in a synchronised way along with your body.

I know I overeat at meals, but I can't help it. If I limit my portions, I'm hungry an hour later. How can I avoid overeating and have better control of my appetite? My stomach aches, thought it becomes fine in a day, but still it pains regularly, what to do?

Hi. There are 2 major reasons when you overeat - emotional eating, or compulsive eating (binge eating)! Over time, compulsive overeating usually leads to obesity. Obesity, in turn, causes numerous medical complications, including: Type 2 diabetes Gallbladder disease High cholesterol High blood pressure Heart disease Certain types of cancer Osteoarthritis Joint and muscle pain Gastrointestinal problems Sleep apnea Management: -Manage stress. These may include exercising, meditating, using sensory relaxation strategies, and practicing simple breathing exercises. -Eat three meals a day plus healthy snacks. -Avoid temptation. Remove the temptation by clearing your fridge and cupboards of your favorite binge foods. -Stop dieting. The deprivation and hunger of strict dieting can trigger food cravings and the urge to overeat. -Exercise. Not only will exercise help you lose weight in a healthy way, but it also lifts depression, improves overall health, and reduces stress. -Instead of snacking when you're bored, distract yourself. Take a walk, call a friend, read, or take up a hobby such as painting or gardening. -Get enough sleep. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Silicea 30/ thrice a day for 3 weeks and Cina !M/ once daily at night for 1 week. Revert back.

You require medicines from a psychiatrist to calm you down plus cognitive behavior therapy from a good psychologist. The sessions with a psychologist will continue for quite some time. You may try medicines from patanjali chikitsalaya. You practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. It is excellent to drive depression, negative thinking out of your system. Not necessary, you have to be present in front of your tv at 5 am. Begin by switching on your tv just whatever time you get up and start practicing as being taught. Gradually when you regulate your sleeping time, you will be able to get up next morning at 5 and will be able to do complete workout. The time you spend here will actually be an investment that will remove tension, stress, etc. Leading to increased positivity.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Dear , Your headache could be due to stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear Doctor, its 5 am in the morning I am writing to you. I am an engineering student, Age 26, Unmarried, No record of mental illness or any other health issues in the past. Doctor, from last one week I am facing some difficulties in my thoughts. I just keep thinking myself in a hypothetical situation about anything or everything that is never gonna happen at all. It happens even when I am with my friends or in class or during dinner or while working, I don’t think I have situation where I don’t get these thoughts. I tried to keep myself busy but they (thoughts) are still with me. Initially I thought it was due to lack of sleep, but very soon I got that I keep thinking even in the sleep too, means in last week I never got a deep sleep like before. Doctor, I am not a continuous smoker but I smoke. Before yesterday, last time I smoked was 2 months back and I don’t have thought about tea, coffee, drinks (alcohol) or any other drugs. What actually made me panic is yesterday after noon I had a tea and smoked a cigarette. After that my mind is functioning well. I got a good sleep of 4 hours and as of now no issue of thoughts. 15 days back went to meet my parents (after 14 months). Where my mom used to give me the tea every day (2 times a day for 8 days), (I am telling it because I don’t have habit of tea or coffee and usually when I have a tea or coffee it’s difficult for me to sleep but in my home it was normal, even after having tea for 2 times my sleep was good and I don’t have a clue why) So doctor tell me now, What actually happening to me? Am I addicted tea in that short time? Or something wrong with my mind? I need to have this tea? Or smoke? (doctor I don’t want to be a slave of tea or smoke)

You mentioned there have been changes in your sleep patterns. Make sure that you sleep adequately and sleep on time and wake up on time. Sleeping early mornings or kate nights could hamper sleep quality. Second eat a balanced diet with fruits and vegetables. Practise relaxation exercises. Also, consult a psychologist to help you vent out and understand the thoughts that are bothering you.

You have a problem with extreme fear and I suspect that it has its origins somewhere in childhood. You will need to meet a counselor and work on this fear and your emotions in general. It will definitely help for you to start vigorous aerobic exercise immediately. Exercise will make your heart grow larger and an enlarged heart will pump blood more efficiently and with fewer beats to reach all parts of your body. Any species with a slower heart beat live longer. Besides, everytime you are afraid to this extent, your body will release the stress hormone, cortisol, and make your body gear up for emergency many times unnecessarily. Please meet with a counselor and take charge of your emotions quickly. You are young and the chances of resolving this soon are good if you cooperate.
