Sir I'm male 21 year old engineering student, my problem is that I can't study more than one hour, but my course is very vast.

Dont worry. Read one hour at a time, daily. That is sufficient. If not, after one hour take abreak for 10 minutes. Then continue. Write down notes, prepare charts or diagrams doing all these will generate interest in that subject.

The four faces of introversion

1. Shy-secure people: don’t have a strong need to be around people, and don’t tend to worry about talking to new people. They can socialise if they need to, but they general prefer to be by themselves and to do things on their own.

2. Shy-withdrawn people: suffer from social anxiety. They are highly sensitive to perceived rejection, are anxious of negative evaluation, and are afraid of doing something embarrassing. They suffer more anxiety than people who are shy-secure.

3. Shy-dependent people: are overly helpful, accommodating, self-effacing and compliant. They have a strong need to be with other people but they feel they are inferior or “not good enough”. They have good social skills and are pleasant company – but they give up their true self in their desire to fit in.

4. Shy-conflicted people: vacillate between wanting to be around other people and then pulling back (as social situations are a real source of stress). This group of people experience the most stress and anxiety.

Don't allow your mind to wander but bring the mind under control of your self with help of your intelligence. If you control your mind your mind can be your best friend but if you do not control your mind your mind can become your worst enemy.

Hi I am a 26 years old female. I am schizophrenic. What other healing methods are available apart from taking regular medicines?

Schizophrenia is always treated with a combination of pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, counseling and meditation. Such a combination of treatment always provides better relief because of altered life style and perception. I am ready to provide telephone consultation for psychotherapy and meditation. Let me know if you are willing to undergo those. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

Most Practical Ways of Controlling Everyday STRESS

Most Practical Ways of Controlling Everyday STRESS

We generally use the word 'stress' when we feel that everything becomes too much to handle - we are overloaded and wonder whether we can cope with the pressures placed upon us. Nowadays stress is a normal part of life. Almost everyone has some sort of stress. Constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, threatens our health and well-being.

There are steps you can help you managing day to day stressful conditions and take to feel better.

  1. Be realistic: If you feel overwhelmed by some activities (yours and/or your family's), learn to say NO! Eliminate an activity that is not absolutely necessary. You may be taking on more responsibility than you can or should handle. If you meet resistance, give reasons why you're making the changes. Be willing to listen to other's suggestions and be ready to compromise.
  2. Shed the 'superman/superwoman' urge: No one is perfect, so don't expect perfection from yourself or others. Ask yourself, 'What really needs to be done?' How much can I do? Is the deadline realistic? What adjustments can I make?' Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it.
  3. Take one thing at a time: For people under tension or stress, their day-to-day workload can sometimes seem unbearable. The best way to cope with this feeling of being overwhelmed is to take one task at a time. Make a list of things you need to get done and start with one task. Once you accomplish that task, choose the next one. The positive feeling of 'checking off' tasks is very satisfying. It will motivate you to keep going.
  4. Share your feelings: A conversation with a friend lets you know that you are not the only one having a bad day. Stay in touch with friends and family. Ask them how they have dealt with a similar situation that may be 'stressing you out.' Let them provide love, support and guidance. Don't try to cope alone.
  5. Be flexible: If you find you're meeting constant opposition in either your personal or professional life, rethink your position or strategy. Arguing only intensifies stressful feelings. Make allowances for other's opinions and be prepared to compromise. If you are willing to be accommodating, others may meet you halfway. Not only will you reduce your stress, you may find better solutions to your problems. Go easy with criticism. You may expect too much of yourself and others. Try not to feel frustrated, disappointed or even 'trapped' when another person criticises you.
  6. Hobbies: Take a break from your worries by doing something you enjoy. Whether it's gardening or painting, schedule time to indulge your interest. Exercise: Regular exercise is a popular way to relieve stress. Twenty to thirty minutes of physical activity benefits both the body and the mind. Meditate: Just ten to twenty minutes of quiet reflection may bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it.
  7. Take Herbal Supplement: Herbs like Brahmi, Ashwagandha, Mandukparni, Shankhpuspi, Kaunch are very helpful in managing stress. These herbs work on the brain and help relax you which ultimately empowers you to manage your stressful conditions easily. There are many herbal supplements available in the market that can help you.
  8. Consult the Doctor: If your stress level doesn't seem to improve with above tips, it may require more attention and consultation with an Expert.

MD - Psychiatry

If you are now better as per your depression diagnosis if it was MDD THEN ONLY aripiprazole AND LAMOTRIGINE CAN BE TAPPERED GRADUALY. If it is bipolar depression then stratigy can be different.there is no long acting combination for more then a day preparation.OD ONCE ADAY IS AVAILABLE. GRADUAL TAPERING DOWN ONLY TO ADEQUATE DOSE OF venlafaxine od 150 mg or 225 mg may be possible. I dont advise to do it own your own because self medication can be dangerous. Better go to your psychiatrist with your query,and ask him to try to settle yourself on single drug adquete dose. If you can talk to him sensibly he may be able to do this.Best luck.

Please tell me how to improve my memory power. I am in a big trouble only because of this. It seems as if one hour for me is equal to three hours. Please help me out. Thanks!

M.Sc - Psychotherapy

Memory power can be increased by repetition and recollection. Remove all tensions and worries and keep your mind calm when you study. Focus on what you study and understand. Then close your book and recollect what you studied. Write down several times. By this way you can increase your memory.

You are in immediate need of consultation. This is all stress and worries of life, u are having plenty of reasons for insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don' t like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life. If u want connect now.

As you say" she is not responding" I assume that her fits are still not under control then, and she continues to have psychiatric problems. In that case she may need a change of present medications according to her complaints. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for the same. If you feel so, you may contact me online for any further queries or assistance in treatment thereof.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Mr, now in this age, the reason for unable to focus on studies might be due to any deviations, attractions, which is common in this age, or any family issues, or any lack of interest in subjects, or not able to nderstand the concept. If you r aware of any of these, then, its in your hands, to avoid thinking abt those issues, taking any assistance from friends/lecturers who can help you better in explaining, or go to group studies. Practice pranayama/meditation daily morning/evening or night, to avoid stress, & to improve concentration over studies. If you feel that you r getting more strained by studying, try to take break, get engaged in any other your interested games/hobbies/activities like reading other books, listening sngs, chatting with friends, family members etc, t get relaxed & then again you go t study again. ** try to take brahmi lehyam[ayurveda-1 spoonful]] or, aswagandha mother tincture [homeo. 15-20 drops in 1/4th cup of luke or normal water]daily twice m/n to imrove memory.
