My sister 51 years suffering from an acute situation. Few months back she was identified with esophageal varices and beginning of ulcer. Doctor told me that the cause of the ulcer is coming from her head and it is nothing but her tensions. She is a primary school teacher and got transferred to a new school. What she says that she cannot adjust with the new environment, teaching in english medium, students are not obeying her, cannot take class, cannot value papers, cannot prepare food, cannot dress up properly. Now she is saying that she cannot even prepare rice or tea. E feel a special appearance, do not eat well, getting worser every day. Every time crying without tears. Spent hours in kitchen and come back without doing anything. Our elder sister died due to ovarian cancer 1 years back. Her husband and 3 sons are so frustrated and saying her that go and commit suicide if she cannot do anything. She has his own convictions and when we ask her to consult a doctor she says doctors cannot do anything. They cannot cure. Now she is afraid of doing anything and simply spending time and complaining that she cannot do anything. How can we diagnose the situation.

Your sister has been undergoing stress disorder which if not checked earlier would lead to psychiatric conditions like anxiety neurosis, depression etc., The first thing I would like to suggest is to withdraw from her job role for a particular period of time. Medical leave for a month or two will be enough. This will give her a relaxation from the overwhelming fear/tension/stress. The second thing is to take her to a psychological counselor who can teach her some relaxation techniques and use some couseling techniques to gradually reduce her irrational fears and other psychological issues and adjustment problems. The most impartant part is that her husband and children are in need of counselling in order to give her emotional support to overcome her problems soon. Find a psychological counsellor asap. Certainly there is a way out.

My husband is 64 years old, who is anxiety patient, nowadays he has this habit of contacting girls and getting him getting old. To speak with them, he has some issue with it appears he is having some phsycological problems, how can I deal with this issue.

Dear, your husband is already 64 years and he must be knowing what he is doing. My suggestion would be to leave him alone and do not frustrate him by telling the same thing again and again. The more you frustrate him, the more he will repet his problem behavior. For anxiety, behavior therapy could be practised. Please consult a psychologist. Take care.

My daughter has started faking injury for example she started to limp but when nobody is watching she walks normally. When I confronted her regarding this she started crying and said she was not faking it.

Hi lybrate-user, This is common in children. It is NOT right call it faking. Children often unconsciously resort to such measures when faced with stress. This very well known. Confrontation will only worsen her condition by making her feel even more stressed. The situation needs to be handled expertly and with care. I recommend that you consult an expert on this to identify the stressors and resolve the situation in a healthy way. Take care!

My exam is coming very soon. But I can't concentrate in my study. How can I concentrate in Study?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am in depression. Due to a lier friend. What should I do now to come out from depression?

I am in depression. Due to a lier friend. What should I do now to come out from depression?
You are not really depressed; you are just angry and feel let down. The solution is really very simple: break the relationship with the liar. But the more complicated fact is that everybody lies at least four times a day! lying is quite common and so it is important to accept this fact and learn to live with it. Don? t take it too personally. You must learn to also believe some of what you hear, and know to discern the difference between lies and truth. Many times you have to leave it to the individual to learn lessons from their lies. When people lie one major fallout is that others will not trust them. If you lose the trust of people, what is left? it is important for you to be honest as much as possible. Sometimes you can tell people, and if they accept they can indeed reform but if they don? t, then you have a problem on your hands. Then it is better to quit the relationship.

--Need Help with Hypnotherapy-- Been suffering from lot of anxiety and severe depression over the guilt of committing something which is morally wrong according to me. Although it hasn't affected anyone, its not a crime and no one was hurt at all and it means nothing to others, but its something I never wanted to do and hated it to the core. My principles and moral values never allowed me even to go close to it. Had been judging people in a bad way for years about it. But somehow I ended up doing the same thing. Earlier I used to walk away from such people. But I can not walk away from myself! And I can not forgive myself for the sin I have committed and now I just want to die. I can't live with myself remembering I did something I never wanted to do. Is there any way to erase that event from my mind? I just want to delete that part, I want to delete just that one day and that moment from my life. I have heard a hypnotherapist can do it? Please help! Please help me forget (erase) it forever!

HI LIBRATE USER Feeling guilty, it really make you feel like a huge burden is on your shoulder, but the good thing about this was that you could use your guilt as a sign of what priorities you needed to change your life. Everyone make mistakes, making mistakes is what make us human. You should appreciate yourself for your inner honesty and try to improve your life. Focus on forgiving yourself for what you have done, learn from the past and do better in your future. An affirmation of positive statement would be encourage and uplift your thoughts. Try this-"I am a good person and deserve the best despite my past actions" I am not perfect, I make mistakes, but I can learn from my past. Try to tell yourself daily for one week and give your feedback. Thanks.

Multi-Tasking Can Damage Your Brain and Career in These 3 Shocking Ways.

Certified * (GMHAT-PC) University of Chester, (U.K.)* Master Hypnotist, California (U.S.A.), Ph.D (Psychology), D.M. , D.C.H. , M.B.A.
Psychologist, Nagpur
Multi-Tasking Can Damage Your Brain and Career in These 3 Shocking Ways.
"Multi-tasking can damage your brain and career in these 3 shocking ways.

In the present day and age, everyone’s always in a hurry. This has increased the tendency of multitasking in most people, whether it’s at their workplace, at home or while eating.
Studies have indicated that completing a single task at a time scores over multitasking and the latter even has some scary after-effects. It’s been proven that multitasking can have a huge negative influence on your brain as well as your career. Read on to find out the three ways in which multitasking is actually doing you more harm than good.

1. Your IQ level is lowered due to multitasking

Studies have revealed that multitasking can slow down your responses and even lower your IQ. A study conducted by the University of London observed a group of adults who were regularly asked to multitask. The results showed a considerable decline in the IQ level of the participants and the effects of multitasking were equated with those experienced after smoking marijuana or remaining awake all night. It was also observed that the IQ drop among some of the men resulted in them achieving IQ scores that match that of an 8-year-old child.

2. Multitasking can harm your brain

A research conducted by the University of Sussex, UK, proved that multitasking can lower your brain density in the anterior cingulate cortex (the area responsible for your emotional and cognitive control). This study analysed the MRI scans of the brains of the participants while they were multitasking (like working with multiple electronic devices). In conclusion, the researchers found out that the processes going on in the human body while interacting with multiple devices at once affect the brain’s natural structure negatively, thus hampering your ability to make wise decisions.

3. Multitasking worsens your performance at work

Studies reveal that multitasking exposes your brain to multiple streams of electronic information at once, which drastically interferes with your capacities of paying attention and remembering details.
Organizing thoughts in a proper manner also becomes difficult for people who multitask. They often fail to differentiate between relevant and irrelevant data, and show slow responses when asked to switch from one task to another. Your brain has been designed to handle and focus on only one task as a time, so if you multitask it cannot perform the multiple tasks with the same efficiency and speed. As a result, the quality of work reduces and your productivity decreases to a large extent if this continues for a long time. Moreover, multitasking can have a negative impact on your overall performance at your workplace, which can adversely impact your career in the long run.

So, if you find yourself multitasking often due to lack of time or work pressure, don’t let it turn into a regular habit. This will not only keep the quality of your work intact, but will also save you from potential brain damage.
