Hi Lybrate user Try to make a study schedule. Keep in mind why you are passionate about this exam and start feeling that you are very close to your destination. After exams you have free time to have fun. Make short term goals for each day hourly basis and after completion of your goal give yourself a reward it may be your mob just for 5-10 minutes. Always remember" you are the creater of your own destiny" eat healthy sleep well and just do your best. All The Best.

Homeopath,
I have fever and body pain for 3 days. What should I do?
Now a days, dengue and swine-flu fevers are prevailing which may need immediate hospitalisation. Get tested for these fevers. If this is only ordinary fever, take homoeo medicine belladonna 30 (6 to 8 pills) --3 times (hourly) in the morning and arsenicum alb 30---3 times (hourly) in the evening. If the fever continues after 1or 2 days, have a check-up with local doctor.

There is no reason good enough to contemplate death. Life has a lot of problems and we must learnt to deal with it by being disciplined. Life is extremely precious and must be preserved at all cost: you have only one chance in this world and hopelessness will haunt but you can overcome all this with some help and other people. Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

I am 26 year old and my problem is whenever I listen criticize about me I feel very nerves and uncomfortable along with my confidence also lost. How can I make my reputation and self confidence?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For most people it is difficult to listen to their criticism. Also in our culture everyone has some suggestion or advice about how we shall go about certain things. Some people will not even think about how other person will feel. They usually do not even think about your feelings and the fact that you get hurt. If you get hurt they will again criticize you for that. That is the cycle which keeps going. Now, is there anything that you could do to change them and stop them to criticize you? the answer is no. You can not change anyone. Only thing you can change is how do you respond to these kind of situation and people. Right now you are not only feeling uncomfortable and nervous but that is also affecting your self confidence. Now this is something you could work on. Ask yourself, if anything is possible, how would you like to behave and feel when people criticize you? you may realize that perhaps these people care for you, or may be they see lot of potential within you and want you to do even better. So take the advice with openness and positivity and it could only boost your self confidence. If the criticism is done with bad intention to make you feel bad and low. Then please my dear friend learn to ignore it because if you do feel bad then the other person is winning and would keep doing the same thing over and over again just for fun or winning. But if they see that you are not affected by their comments and you keep doing what you feel right, sooner or later they will start respecting you and their behavior will change towards you. Now to begin with you may pre - decide what will you tell yourself or what kind of support system you will come up with to handle the situation where you will not fall into the old trap of being nervous and loose your confidence. If you need help in coming up with something suitable for you. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Hi, Most people go through a period of job dissatisfaction. There's a wide range of reasons for this, and in many cases, it's a chronic and highly stressful situation. It's common in mid-career, too, which is arguably the worst possible time for it to happen. You can consider the following: “Change your career within your company.” “Compare your current job skills with the job skills needed in a more desirable career and re-write your resume to reflect your skills rather than your jobs,” then apply within or outside your company. Network. “Don’t quit your job unless you have something solid (either another job or acceptance in a educational program).” Otherwise you can deal with anxiety, stress and depression associated with dissatisfaction when no other work options are available: “You can try to target what is causing you stress in the first place.” “You need to work hard and creatively to prove your worth to the organization.” “Look for the silver lining (think of all the new activities you will be able to put on your resume).” “Turn your attention to the outside. Work is often only a small part of who you are. Where else in your life are you getting satisfaction? Enlarge that, even if you can only do it mentally. Take care of you wherever you can. Hobbies, working out, getting a massage, laughing with your children, etc.” “Social support is key. If you are not getting enough support, see if your company has an employee assistance program. Use it.” You can consult me for career related counseling and stress management. All the best.

Penile papules have been reported to be present in between 8% and 43% of men. They are more common in men that have not been circumcised. They become less apparent with increased age. Penile papules are a normal anatomic variant. They are not due to sexual activity or lack of hygiene. They are not infectious or contagious, unlike genital warts. They are not malignant or pre-malignant. Castor oil is said to be highly effective in treating PPP.

Good Morning ~ Stresses can take the best of a person and make him into a depressed or anxious person who is non functional. It seems like you have recognized the fact that you are depressed. One way you can probably approach the situation is to find ways to cope better with the stresses that you are having. You will find time to ponder over the subject and come up with unique solutions if you do mindfulness meditation. I believe that you also will get rid of the internal health problems (you have not mentioned what they are), if you focus on distracting your mind from weaknesses and concentrate on issues that are helpful for bringing you back into a non-depressed state. Medications are helpful, however I recommend reading more about depression so as to come to proper conclusions regarding the necessity for treatment from a psychiatrist.

Your loss is understandable. But your mourning and sadness about your loss is taking too long for you to recover. Feeling sad, depressed and hopeless about life are signs of depression. Without any further delay I would suggest you to reach out and consult a psychiatrist with a family member with all your details so that an appropriate management can be started. Depression like any other illness is treatable and once you are out of it you will be fine. Follow few suggestions. Never stay alone always speak out if you have feelings of self harm or suicide and ask someone for help. Talk to friends and family and people who care about you.

My concentration power is too low. So what can I do for that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, 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. 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. 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.

I have weak memory and my face skin is red please held me with a Wright prescription.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
You do this: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall and upper part of body lying down making 90 degree with legs for 10 mins. Your mind will be relaxed of all stress within 5-7 mins temporarily. Secondly, meditation also helps to reduce stress and develop your memory power. You can also take homoeopathic brahmi 3x three times in a day daily to increase your memory power.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there ~ A Guide to Finding Treatments That Work Try to exercise on most days. You don’t have to go to the gym. A 30-minute walk four times a week is enough to provide benefits. Thirty minutes of activity every day is even better. Pick something enjoyable, so you’ll stick with it. Choose activities that play to your physical strengths or that you find challenging yet fun. Team sports can be a good choice because the social element keeps them interesting.

I am 18 years old. I am having problem of getting short tempered. Now what should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am 18 years old. I am having problem of getting short tempered. Now what should I do?
Start by considering these 10 anger management tips. 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything ? and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening ? or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame ? which might only increase tension ? use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes," instead of, "You never do any housework." 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though ? it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy." You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses ? whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.
