Hi, I am Atika. I am a counselling psychologist and I have been practising from last 11 years. I have seen very dangerous mental issues ranging from relationships, marital issues, work stress, parent child, low confidence, too much mental illness and suicide. Today I am going to talk about "Investing in oneself emotionally". As I feel that a lot of our problems arise because we do not look after our emotions like anger, stress and then it all leads to breakdown. We all invest in our career, our ambitions, our standard of living, even in our physical health. Somehow we do not pay attention to our mental health whereas the overall well being depends on the physical as well as the emotional health.

As we grow from our infant to our adulthood, we are taught to take care of our physical health like how to dress, how to eat, how to take care of our physical needs. But somehow, we are not taught that how to take care of our emotional health like that of love, appreciation, acceptance, acknowledgement, companionship.

What happens when these emotional needs are not met?

It will gradually develop into frustration, anger, stress, and eventually a breakdown. 

So how do we take care of our emotional needs?

  • First of all, it is very important to become aware of them. What is the emotional need? To feel acceptance? To feel loved? To feel appreciated? This is required to be identified.
  • Second is to acknowledge them, that yes these exist, these needs exist through our life.
  • Third is to accept them, to embrace them
  • Fourth is to deal with them, to cope with them in a healthy manner.

How can u do all these?

It is important to seek for a counselling. We go to a psychologist or a counsellor who can provide unbiased, safe environment where one can share their deepest fear. Talk about the fear which they are going through, without the fear of being judged. And gradually through the counselling process, we get to know that what drives us, what motivates us, what are our emotional needs and how we fulfill them in a healthy manner.

People who take care of their physical well being, mental well being and emotional well being, are more productive and more fulfilling life. They have better relationships, they are more productive, they are good at work and they are happier individuals.

If you want to know more about emotional needs or more interesting topics or psychological needs, you can contact me through Lybrate or breakingbarriers.co.in.

My clinic is in Sec- 28, Noida. You can come and visit me there for an appointment.

Thank you.

Headache and body ache is a known side effect of sildenafil (the content of vigora). I do not recommend you to continue taking it. It is to be taken for problems like erectile dysfunction. So, do not take it without supervision. Instead, learn healthier and natural ways of improving your sex life. Learn about kegel exercise, improve your foreplay techniques to prolong the duration of intercourse.

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.

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.

I' m also overweight 70kg and though tried gym yoga and medition but I cant stick to it because I dont feel motivated. Sometimes I feel like crying whole day for my current situation. Sometimes I feel happy but den few hrs later I again either become sad or emotionless. I thought of talking about this to my parents but I dont want to give them tension so was not feeling comfortable to consult them. Should I go to a phycatrist. Please help.

Dear, you don't need to consult a psychiatrist for now. You need to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. You are disappointed due to the life happenings. If you interpret, you will know, whatever happened in your life, has reasons and you are also part of it. Understanding your life and life situations help you overcome the disappointment. Then disappointment also vanishes. Don; t be overly anxious about your current situation. Everything will change for sure. Be cheerful. Change your attitude towards your life and career. Always say everything will be alright. Take care.

Your problem is termed as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS)and it is a condition in which people are highly sensitive to electromagnetic fields. In an area such as a wireless hotspot or Internet connection, they experience Headache and a variety of other symptoms including fatigue, nausea, burning and itchy skin, and muscle aches. These symptoms are subjective and vary between individuals.There are also some indications that these symptoms may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about believed EMF( Electromagnetic Frequency) health effects, rather than the EMF exposure itself but whatever is the cause, EHS is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons. The five most common symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity are: 1. skin itch/rash/flushing/burning, and/or tingling 2. confusion/poor concentration, and/or memory loss 3. fatigue and weakness 4. headache 5. chest pain and heart problems

Hi lybrate-user! I understand that anxiety must be your first and easiest emotion you experience but what you can do is to learn how to identify stressors, take necessary steps to remain calm and handle tense situations in a constructive, positive manner. I know it might sound very typical, but trust me this will help you in the long run. You can take up therapy from a psychologist and learn how to be assertive and practice mindfulness. You might also consider going to a psychologist to learn relaxation technique. Hope it helps you. Plus try the grounding technique i.e whenever you are anxious look around you: find five things you can see, four things you can touch, three things you can hear, two things you can smell and one thing you can taste. It can help when you feel like you have lost all control of your surroundings. All the best!

Dear madam, I have done a lot of mistakes in my life. And didn't study well. So jobless. We r two sisters. Always it is in my mind that if I won't work how I LL see my parents in future. Bt as I hav neglected so much always depressed over were to start. Moreover my in laws r pathetic. whatever ill they say that only goes in my mind very now and then. Consciously or unconsciously. To overcome it I sleep maximum tym. No regularity in life. My husband is very supportive in every case. Bt his encouragement always beaten my so called uncontrolled negative thoughts. I have become mean. Bt already I am 27. I get angry so easily. If ever I talk to someone I love I get irritated. I don't feel normal and cool. I behave very bad in anger. I am very frustrated. I know if I get a job everything will b fine. Bt for tat wer to start and wen I LL get. Moreover to give birth a kid is an additional pressure. I love baby. Bt I just don't want it coz of anyone's want or self. I want it to complete my family. Bt nt under pressure or in such frustrating mindset of mine. I qualify all qualities of depression as far as I have surfed net. Bt always think tat will power can make it better. Bt truly I have gone to frustration, lethargy, negativity all at once. I don't sleep at nights. All negative thats come. I have become scared. Many a times I become emotional and cry like anything. I am scared of consulting any doctor or medicine because my mother is a patient of depression and medicine makes person robot. C is fine now bt not like the old one. please help doctor.

I appreciate your openness and your acceptance of your perceived mistakes. I also think that it is wise to sort out your emotions before you have a baby. Now, please understand that we all make mistakes in life. We have to see that we don't repeat the mistakes and learn from past experiences. Also, you need to forgive yourself for your past mistakes. Remember -" if one door closes, another one opens" - if you think you did not study well, you may try to find an occupation which is related to your hobby e. G. If you love to paint - start something on your own which involves painting work, or if you are health conscious, learn yoga so that you yourself can become a trainer. Because by doing this you will start earning money and then your concern about how to look after your parents will get sorted out. If your mother is a depression patient, don't think that your condition will be like her. You two are different individuals and are likely to have different life problems. Technology and medicines have advanced a lot, since your mother's time. So don't think that if you go to a doctor, you will become like your mother. But if you think you need help and if you don't go to a doctor, in time, then certainly you are inviting trouble. If you seriously feel that you are sad most of the times, the please talk to a counsellor/psychologist who will help you in finding the cause of your depresssion and will also help in assessing your depression. Talking to a counsellor will help you in managing your anger and other negative thoughts. Don't rely on the internet for final diagnosis, it is good only to have basic information. You are not able to sleep at night, because probably you are sleeping a lot during day time. Your in-laws may have sensed that somehting is not ok with you or you are not happy, and hence may be worried about you and your husband and your future. Kindly seek professional help. Take care.

For a depressed person withdrawal is very harmful. You have to make an effort to socialize with people whether you like them or not. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
