Hi lybrate-user, this is because of anxiety, you need to practice deep breathing exercise: find a quiet space where you can be alone with no distractions. Close the door, if possible. As you get used to this breathing exercise, you may be able to close out distractions and perform the exercise around others. Sit upright, with your back straight. You can sit in a chair, or sit on the floor with your legs crossed, whatever feels more natural. You can lie down if you must. Keep in mind, however, that sitting upright allows your lungs to fill to maximum capacity, which is best when practicing deep breathing place your arms on the arms of a chair or resting on your thighs. This removes the burden from your shoulders and aids in relaxation. For a count of four seconds, breathe deeply through your nose. Your lower belly should expand with the breath. For one to two seconds, simply hold the breath inside your chest. Now, exhale all of the air out of your lungs through your mouth. You should hear a" whoosh" sound as it leaves your mouth. Notice your belly deflating as you release the breath. To avoid hyperventilating, pause for a few seconds before taking a new breath. Do this entire sequence again for about five minutes. About six to eight cycles of breathing per minutes is considered effective at relieving anxiety. Nonetheless, you should find your own natural breathing rhythm that makes you comfortable. Practice deep breathing at least twice a day for five minutes each session. All the best.

It seems most likely to be a Obsessive Compulsive disorder, with secondary depression, wherein recurrent intrusive thoughts come against a person s own will. It is due to altered serotonin transmission in areas of brain (mind) and can be easily treated by any psychiatrist. Consult one. All the best.

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

5 signs that you or your loved one may have bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless

Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.

Feeling extremely depressed

Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.

Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you

You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.

Loss of appetite during the depression phases

During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.

Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases

When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.

If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

How should I control my anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
At your age the unresolved childhood issues have an effect but not by its own action. There is also the contribution of testosterone that makes both boys and girls become aggressive and sexually active, and it lasts for a near-definite period of two years. This may have happened when you were in your late teens and for some reason may not have been adequately resolved or not at all. Since there is not much you can do about the hormones, you must focus on the emotion caused by the unresolved developmental issues. Talk to mom who will know of possible reasons that you could be angry from some provocative event/s that remained dormant for a long period and has now been activated at the teenage phase. This may have been your last chance to sort it out but since it has not been sorted out it will remain a permanent feature in your adult life, until you take active measures to resolve it. If necessary seek the help of a counselor, who will help you deal with it. In the meantime, you could do vigorous exercise either individually or through group games. This will expel the energy of the anger but you will still need to express it to someone later but it will be under good control.

Your relative needs a lot of support from family and friends too. Take him for counselling sessions and try and find out the reason for his depression which will help in treating accordingly. He needs to involve himself in more of physical activities and needs regular visit to rehabilitation centre to get that positive feel.

Dear lybrate-user, from teenage to till marriage love is very common, but every individual thinks that it is only his problem it is not, some people they express some people will not, when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career.

I am so glad that you want to quit this bad habit even at this age. I am sue that this decision will have a huge impact on your longevity and general health. There may be some developments that are silently building up and may be just a finger-snap away from manifesting itself. You must exercise some restraint and bring in good practices to return you to good health from the unseen and lurking damages. Your body does a lot of adjustment to cope with the abuse. But after a certain period of time, that coping ability will decline and it cannot manage. Fortunately, almost all the damage by smoking can be reversed, if and when you stop and take measures to lead a healthy life of exercise, diet and rest. It is difficult to quantify the extent of damage but effects could be felt in your stamina, skin wrinkling, lung capacity, heart strain, eye damage, sexual erectile capacity, tooth decay and tartar buildup, foul breath, damage to the celia lining your throat; brain cells, and for some people the early stages of cancer promoting conditions, and a host of other problems. You are advised to stop immediately and abruptly. Since the damage varies from individual to individual, it is important to do a follow up. And if you go through a medical checkup, you will know what has damaged and to what extent. It will always seem bleak but when you do stop, you will not only arrest further damage but will reverse a lot of other damages to normalcy. It is definitely worth all the trouble instead of causing further harm. And I guarantee you that you will feel really good. Why wait for some sign that you have a problem to cease the smoking? This is a reactive mode. Everyone knows the harm tobacco consumption does. So there is no two ways about it: quit now and enjoy the benefits without waiting for a problem to surface to shake you up and make it near impossible to recover, if the situation is beyond repair. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. 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. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers 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 cigarette, 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.

Hello Armaan, Loosing someone close to you is a big shock for your mind and it does become very difficult to cope up with that loss. But life goes on and we cannot live in the past forever. You can take homeopathic Ignatia 1M, 4 pills once a day for a week. This medicine has proven to be very effective in reducing the depression caused by such a loss. You will feel much better within 2-3 days with it. Let me know if you need any help. I will be glad to help.

You should meet with a doctor who will monitor your withdrawal from pentazocine. If the addiction is too severe you are better advised to admit yourself to a hospital and have them conduct the detoxification process to remove the physical craving. If it is more severe than that and you have an addictive personality, you must admit yourself to a rehabilitation who will do both the detoxification and the rehabilitation of your personality. Even after treatment, you will need to attend na meetings in your city for a long time.

After 12th pass I am not anymore interested in studies what r the reasons behind this?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Whenever I start studying I feel sleepy and so I can not do my study well. What to do to get concentrated on studies? It is obvious that you are not interested in your studies because it may not be suitable to your aptitude. Please meet with a career guidance counselor and do some tests that will also determine what your natural skills are and then choose an appropriate career and course. It may also be that you have studied these topics already right through the year and find it very boring to do it all over again. You may be just sleep deprived! Perhaps you are not exercising enough everyday! Look into all of these matters and deal with it in an appropriate fashion. In fact every time you feel sleepy, just get up and do some jumping jacks and it will wake you up. If you are feeling sleepy, do some written work. In the worst case scenario, you may have some tea or coffee and that will perk you up. Never have too much carbohydrate meals before studying, it will make you drowsy. In terms of concentration here are a few guidelines: 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 or coconut oil instead, 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 you and the family go for counseling too.

Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

First you need to deal with your depression, anxiety and other problems. These are troubling you aplenty to keep you awake. You may reach out to a counselor, if you need help. Do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques at night will be tremendously useful. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.
