I think that you are having panic attacks with palpitations. You are overacting to the fear of rejection. This may have come from actually being rejected at sometime early in your life, and as well as too much authority exercised over you at home. There is normal fear for everyone about public speaking and some to interviews. But to have this level of reaction is because of poor self-image and self-esteem. One immediate thing you can do is to place your index finger on your closed lips and blow into your cheeks to build back pressure into your throat. You are to hold this for 10 seconds and within that time your heart will slow down to a lower level and make you calm immediately. You can repeat this every time you experience these panic attacks. It will help tremendously to meet with a counselor and deal with all your fears and reactions to that emotion with healthy responses. In the meantime please do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart? s fitness; meditation for the brain? s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Yes, one possibility is anxiety. You can manage anxiety and stress by several relaxation techniques. Exercise is also a form of mental relaxation. Anti anxiety drugs may be taken for short period if above measures do not work.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me what should i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must be under some form of stress which you are not aware of. Stress is a memory buster. You can work with a counselor to deal with that stress and memory will happily return to you. You can still do certain things to improve your memory. Also you cannot do only study and nothing else: a healthy body is very important for a healthy mind i.e. you must also exercise and socialize. 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. Good social contacts are good for memory too: so make and keep good friends. 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.

Is there is a way to clean your lungs . For a person smoking . Or a doctor can do it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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. 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. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, 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. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, you are morally weak as well as faint hearted. That does never mean you are a failure. Even with the said problems people excel. Due to these, it is easy to develop an inferiority complex and introversion and both of them are going to do good to you. Along with that you also have a moderate amount of generalized anxiety disorder. All these aspects can be managed (not cured) and you can live a normal happy life. Many aspects of your negative thoughts can be cleared and many can be managed. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for necessary advise. Take care.

It takes about 12 weeks to stop totally all the cigarettes and the replacements. If you suddenly quit without getting your nerves to terms, you restart in full vigor within a week. That is how you tried several times. Finding ways of dealing with your tension, happiness and other situation also needed, along with plan of quitting smoking in 12 weeks. Start observing - the craving for smoking comes and goes in waves. If you delay, deep breathe, drink water, distract and discuss (5 Ds) you will observe that craving goes away. That does not mean that it will not come back. But when the craving comes back, you can again do 5 Ds. You will become an expert in it. Reward yourself with some incentives each time you reduce or try quitting. Please connect your quit day to psychologically important day (like birthday of you or your wife or child, wedding day, festival day)

If you get above symptoms inky during exams or when you are overloaded with study logs, then you need to learn to manage stress appropriately. But if inspite of all attempts to manage study stress you always end up with same symptoms, you should consider trying help with medications and counseling. You also might need to learn some relaxation exercises

I am afraid of falling in love, yet i tend to get attached. I have nothing to live for. How should i go on?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your fear of falling in love may be restricting you to the attachment level alone. Good relationships experience bonding. Why would you think that you have nothing to live for. If that is the case, who will want to live with someone who has no good reason to live life? Failure is part and parcel of life. If you don?t learn from it, that could be your problem. All success is attained from and due to failure. Yes, relationship with the opposite sex is difficult and involves a lot of nuances. The very thing that attracts can become the obstacles or contentious points and become the playground for numerous games. So I recommend that you work on yourself and find reasons to live. If you do that, this will add tons to your desirability, and the durability for the staying power you can exercise on girls. Your self-confidence and self-image do need some investment for others to like you and to want you. Attend a personality development course and some personal grooming classes too. And remember that ultimately the one great feature that will stand out and sustain relations is, character. If you have oodles of it, you will never have a problem either in the rejection or acceptance by a female companion. It is worth its weight in gold.

Dear lybrate user. You can reduce your blood hemoglobin content by donating blood. Donating blood is one of the best methods to lower hemoglobin levels. Other steps you can take: - make sure your multivitamin does not contain iron. - avoid iron cookware. - limit vitamin c to know more than 500 mg/day until ferritin level decreases. - check iron content of your water. - limit food sources high in iron, such as red meats and fortified cereals/grains. Take care.
