I'm wasting my time in playing games. So what to do to avoid that?

Advanced Skills in Counselling, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, DCS, Hypnotherapist
Psychologist,
Please give more details like what games and what should you be doing instead. Please consider the gains that you have when you are playing games. What do you gain and lose if you don't do what you are supposed to do? what are your dreams and aspirations for the future? you might be a different person with interests in the games (i am guessing here). You can make a career in games and sports now. You need not follow the regular path. But if it's not your interest then start planning for your future and add details to it like how do you see yourself 5-10 years from now? what kind of job, person you will be? what will you be doing then? then break your goal into daily smaller achievable goals which will help you to stay on track. Remember that all work and no play can be boring. So you reward yourself sometimes by playing your games. So you strike a balance between both and come out a winner.

Side effects of smoking ?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. All these chemicals are capable to be causative of different forms of cancer, TB, respiratory diseases, brain damage etc. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Sir I Want to Know the effect of weed? And want to Quit Smoking because want to improve gastrointestinal what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When you stop it will improve a lot of better things than gastrointestinal problems. It is a good decision you have made and now it is important to implement it. Marijuana has varied findings and claims, many of which are dubious, and some for medicinal uses that are authentic. But each person reacts differently to these substances and you definitely sound like someone who is not reacting well. These drugs can precipitate underlying anxiety, quite innocuously. In the meantime, you must go on a regular exercise program, eat well and sleep well. A personality course will certainly help. Do Yoga and meditation too. If the addiction is in any way covering up some deep-rooted pain, you need to work on that and clear that out of your system. I hope you are aware that people who are addicted are often spiritually bankrupt. It would be wise for you to touch base with your faith and turn to some spiritual exercises to reform your path on the right track. I am sure it will help. Do not delay any action by denial: a typical reaction of all addicts. It comes in the form of over-confidence, some arrogance, and denying the existence of any problem. Stopping weed is like any other habit like smoking and has to be done immediately, promptly, and abruptly. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning and the high you get from the weed. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking weed to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. Though there are contravening information percolating from researchers of various kinds expounding its benefits. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation, even though you are into weed. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers of weed and cigarettes for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a refill, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Bipolar disorder is an episodic disorder, if you had manic symptoms of bipolar, you may have lost insight and behaved irrationally. Else, in acute psychosis (symptoms similar to schizophrenia), the same would have happened. Surely there are chances of recurrence. Review with psychiatrist regularly. Hope he explained relapse cues, so that you can consult early in case symptoms recur.

Divert your mind to some constructive things. Something that has happened has nothing to do what you are now. You are still breathing, that means you are living, and how amazing is that.

At your age of 60 years you need to take stock of your abilities. You are no more young or capable of learning new things fast. Talk to other persons of your age and join some group of elders and talk about your gradually failing capacities. At the same time retain whatever you still have. Try and maintain active life style with your abilities. If you develop anxiety while learning new things, go slowly step by step and take the help from your children or preferably from your grandchildren.

Why we can't divert our mind in anything else why we just things only one thing continuously.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
The simple fact is that your intense intention to divert your attention itself serves as a reminder to think about it. so don't try to forcefully divert your thoughts. instead involve in some physical activities associated with your areas of interest. socialize more. if you still find it difficult to get over the problem there is also a possibility that you are having obsessive compulsive disorder with predominant repeated thoughts. so consult a psychologist

Sir my memory is not lack. I often forget things after some hour how can I remove it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic exercise 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, do yoga meditation exercises, etc. 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling.

BIOLOGICAL MARKERS FOR MENTAL ILLNESS
0 Comments / Jun 30, 2015

Psychiatry

Reliable indicators are of great help in the diagnosis of any disease. This fact assumes more importance in the diagnosis of mental illness because a clinician has to depend on interpretation of clues discernible from a patient’s behaviour, including emotional outbursts. Fortunately, researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine are reported to have identified, for the first time, a biological marker. Their study has been published in the journal EBioMedicine.



Researchers know that the XIST gene works overtime in female patients with mental illness. They also know that this gene inactivates one of the two copies of the X chromosome in cells that store genetic material. Keeping all this in view, they decided to focus on the identification of biomarkers for mental illness, which would, in turn, facilitate further research paving the way for the development of effective drugs.

The study was led by Xianjin Zhou, assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego School of Medicine and lead author. They carried out their study on 60 lymphoblastoid cell lines from female patients, most of whom were found with a family history of mental illness.

Results revealed that nearly 50 per cent of the female patients were found to have XIST gene and other genes related to the X chromosome. The team led by Zhou pointed out that a new treatment option for treating mental illness may be to reverse the abnormal activity of the inactive X chromosome in the patients.

The whole team is optimistic about the results, which have revealed the possibility of early diagnosis of mental illness with a simple blood test. Encouraged by the results, they intend to pursue their research, aimed at finding effective treatment options for mental illness.

When your heart say something else and mind says sommething else then you do not feel like concentrating on that because you r confused. You have to be clear for yourself where your heat and mind meets on same platfom. You will see every thing will fall in place it self. Try it.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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.
