Hi I'm 25 year old I work hard on any work ,but if I didn't get good result. I'm depressing and I'm unable concentrate for next time. And I'm addicted using mobile for much more time.

General Physician,
You have to divert your mind practically and avoid using phone unnecessarily and your willpower is very important .10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

Do a urine pregnancy test to confirm whether she is pregnant or not. If she is not pregnant then the menstrual irregularities can be a part of hormonal imbalance, peri menopausal symptoms or any other problem of the female reproductive tract. In that case consult a gynaecologist for examination and evaluation. Ongoing medications have in role in menstrual problem.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are in love with your wife and she loves you. But she do not interact positively with your family members. These are initial stages of your married life. You have to be a little bit strict in some matters like your family matters. Take care.

Is your anxiety limited to eating only or it increases at that time. This is not clear. However keeping your environment and mind free from stress and focusing your attention on the activity of eating can help you to contain anxiety. Eat and chew your food well, enjoying each bite and the taste, feel, smell and texture of the food. Chew slowly and feel the aroma of the food I your nose and then going down your throat. Notice how the texture of the food changes as you chew it well. This kind of focussed activity is called mindful eating and can really help you to reduce your anxiety. This kind of slowing down and immersing yourself to enjoy each moment will help you to focus in the present and stop the mind from wondering in the past and future. Besides this, I suggest that you take counselling sessions to destress and reduce anxiety and learn how to manage it better or cope with whatever your problems are more effectively, without feeling overwhelmed.

Dear lybrate-user, first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues.

I am 44 yrs old women, off late I feel, that no body gives importance to me, whether it is at office or at home. Only when people need approval / favour from me, they keep saying good about me. Even at home only when family needs my support or money from me, they pretend to be caring. I feel like living in an artificial world. This is making me irritable. I know that I cannot change them. How do I come out of this situation. Please suggest.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is not the artificial world, it is the real world. And welcome to it. It may have nothing to do with your age but has a lot to do with the modern times. Everyone is out to see what they can get for themselves, and is very self-centered. Actually, that is not a problem because I am sure you do the same without realizing. It is bad when self-centered become selfish, and people do not just look for themselves, they ignore other people in the process, even if they are in need or in pain. We are all attention-seeking animals: you want attention, you go get it. Seriously, you have got to fend for yourself and take what you need and ask for what you want. If not, you will just get sidelined. One thing that can happen with age is that you can become lackadaisical and take things for granted. Then that is your fault. You must work to get attention and affection. Build strong bonds with the certain people you like and invest into those relationships to give you dividends at times like these. People have become time-serving leeches and don? t have time to spare for anything else unless it interests them, personally. It would be lovely to have us return to those good old days but the times are a changing and we have to learn to live with it. So there is no coming out of it per se but you want something go get it, period. Rough and tough world but we created it and we have to live in it.

Hi, definitely you should visit a psychiatrist. He is suffering from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). The essential feature of this disorder is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional thoughts are ideas, images or impulses that enter the individual's mind again and again in a stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing (because they are violent or obscene, or simply because they are perceived as senseless) and the sufferer often tries, unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as the individual's own thoughts, even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Autonomic anxiety symptoms are often present, but distressing feelings of internal or psychic tension without obvious autonomic arousal are also common. There is a close relationship between obsessional symptoms, particularly obsessional thoughts, and depression. So, you need to be treated and for that have to visit a psychiatrist otherwise its severity with time will increases.

Hi lybrate-user, Yes it is curable with the right kind of treatment. Some people get fine after a year or two some have to take for a longer period. Consider it like any other disorder- hypertension etc. So don't bother about medicines your health needs to get better. Stick to one doctor and complete full course eventually the dosage will be reduced. Apart from that for negative thoughts practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult a psychologist for therapy and need not worry. All the best.

Dear, see around you. There are many people out there just like you. Fell in love and got cheated. I mean to say that is an universal problem. That is not called depression but disappointment. Disappointment also triggers symptoms as in the case of depression. One or two counseling sessions should solve your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling sessions. Take care.
