6 Tips for Happiness

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
6 Tips for Happiness
6 TIPS TO HAPPINESS.(KEY CONCEPTS OF POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY)

1. Give yourself permission to be human. When we accept emotions ? such as fear, sadness, or anxiety ? as natural, we are more likely to overcome them. Rejecting our emotions, positive or negative, leads to frustration and unhappiness.

2. Happiness lies at the intersection between pleasure and meaning. Whether at work or at home, the goal is to engage in activities that are both personally significant and enjoyable. When this is not feasible, make sure you have happiness boosters, moments throughout the week that provide you with both pleasure and meaning.

3. Keep in mind that happiness is mostly dependent on our state of mind, not on our status or the state of our bank account. Barring extreme circumstances, our level of well being is determined by what we choose to focus on (the full or the empty part of the glass) and by our interpretation of external events. For example, do we view failure as catastrophic, or do we see it as a learning opportunity?

4. Simplify! We are, generally, too busy, trying to squeeze in more and more activities into less and less time. Quantity influences quality, and we compromise on our happiness by trying to do too much.

5. Remember the mind-body connection. What we do ? or don't do ? with our bodies influences our mind. Regular exercise, adequate sleep, and healthy eating habits lead to both physical and mental health.

6. Express gratitude, whenever possible. We too often take our lives for granted. Learn to appreciate and savor the wonderful things in life, from people to food, from nature to a smile.

Improve your concentration with few tips and tricks!

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Improve your concentration with few tips and tricks!

Concentration depends upon the ability to focus. Concentration is basically concerned with disciplining your mind to improve focus. However, your mind will tend to resist your efforts as it loves its own freedom. By practicing 10 to 15 minutes of exercises to improve concentration on a daily basis, you will be able to train and discipline your mind, and hence improve your concentration.

Before proceeding to do these exercises, there is a need to set the mood for it. First of all, you will have to find a place where you can be alone without any disturbance. You can sit cross legged on the floor or on a chair with your spine erect. Take a few deep breaths and then relax your body to direct your attention to it. To start off, you can practice these exercises for 10 minutes and then lengthen the time to 15 minutes after a few weeks of training.

  1. Exercise 1: Take a book or a magazine and count the number of words in a single paragraph. Count them again to ensure that you have counted correctly. You can start off with one paragraph and as you get used to it, move on to counting words in two paragraphs. Then move on to counting words on the whole page. Make sure that you perform the counting mentally and only with your eyes without pointing your finger at each word. This is one of the simplest brain exercises to improve concentration.
  2. Exercise 2: Another exercise to increase concentration is count backwards in your mind from hundred to one. Once you have mastered this, move on to counting backwards from hundred to one but this time skipping three numbers such as 100, 97, 94, 91, 88 etc.
  3. Exercise 3: Select an inspiring word or just a simple sound and think about it in your mind, repeating it in your mind for 5 minutes. Once your mind has begun to concentrate on it easily, move on to 10 minutes of uninterrupted concentration.

Care to share.

Personality Disorder

Dependent Personality Disorder

Dependent personality disorder (dpd) is one of a cluster of disorders defined by symptoms of anxiety and fear. The specific, identifying symptoms include:

  • being emotionally dependent on others; feeling they can’t take care of themselves
  • investing a lot of time and effort in trying to please significant people
  • displaying clingy, passive and needy behavior
  • avoiding disagreements for fear of losing approval and support
  • experiencing separation anxiety and intense fear of abandonment
  • finding it hard to be alone
  • putting the needs of others before their own
  • tolerating mistreatment and abuse for fear of disapproval and abandonment
  • being crushed, and feeling helpless, when relationships end – and forming new relationships as soon as possible
  • being unable to make even the simplest decision without the input and reassurance of others
  • rarely taking the initiative
  • avoiding personal responsibility
  • avoiding responsible jobs and careers that require independent, autonomous functioning
  • being over-sensitivity to criticism
  • feeling negative and pessimistic; expecting to disappoint and fail
  • having low self esteem and lacking confidence, including a belief that they are unable to care for themselves.
  • The cause of disorder is still unclear, and probably includes both a genetic and environmental component. Some researchers have speculated that it could be linked to an authoritarian or overprotective parenting style – which acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition.

Treatment is usually initially sought for some other problem or concern – such as feeling overwhelmed – so that they can’t cope with life. Also, sufferers will often have a mood disorder so they seek help for depression or anxiety at first.

The normal treatment for this particular disorder is counselling or psychotherapy. However, the emphasis is short term therapy so the person doesn’t form a dependency – and then look to the counsellor to take care of them. Prognosis with support is generally good.

My mother has been suffering from schizophrenia for almost 36 years. Although she is on medication, yet she is nt able to live in a healthy way. I dnt think the treatment is working. She get these phases of relapse every year or whenever there is some important event . I want her to live a happy life and get well. I am searching for a good doctor who cn actually help .

Dear lybrate user, it is very difficult to manage a person with schizophrenia. The care givers need lots of patience to deal with the person. It would help if you start counselling for your mother, along with the medication. It needs to be explored what is the trigger for her when there is some important event at home. I think even you and other people at home also need to seek help from the counsellor so that you are not drained out completely while looking after your mother. The counsellor will help you to manage her emotions and explore more resources for yourself. Take care.

Dear , you have not mentioned anything about any peculiar mental conditions your sister may have. If there is no mental health problems like anxiety depression, the problem can be cured through anger management therapy. I think one or two online counseling sessions should clear her problem.

Feels weak loss of energy and stressed when work for long hrs. No interest in sex.
We often blame low libido to stress. Yes it is a very common cause, but in this mode of thinking, we might be missing some organic biological medical cause of what is now termed as erectile dysfunction. You need to undergo a series of blood tests and physical evaluation to rule out any definate cause of your'weakness" please shed your inhibitions and go to a urologist or a sexologist (qualified) and I am sure your days (and nights!) will be better.

Hi. I can understand your distress. Having severe anxiety is very incapacitating. Having this much anxiety usually results from imbalance of chemicals (neurotransmitters) in brain. As a result, our autonomic system is activated to more than usual level, which produces these symptoms. And these are not fully under our control and require some medication, at least initially, to control them. So, you should consult a psychiatrist who will help you understand your problem after thorough check up (as we need to rule out other physical causes of anxiety as well). We see a marked improvement in people having such symptoms and overall functioning with adequate treatment. So do not delay treatment!

How to Treat Depersonalization Disorder?

Psychiatrist, Navi Mumbai
How to Treat Depersonalization Disorder?

A person suffering from depersonalization disorder often feels detached from their thoughts and is often faced with a steange feeling that you are being separated from your emotions and your body. Feeling disconnected from his or her surrounding environment is one of the main symptoms of depersonalization disorder. An affected person might feel like an alien, living in a world of fantasy and fear of getting crazy or depressed, anxious and panicky. A patient with depersonalization disorder does not lose his contact with reality and realizes that his perceptions are unreal. This health condition is a form of dissociative disorder, where the brain gets affected.

Treatment: People seeking treatment for depersonalization disorder are primarily concerned with the associated symptoms such as anxiety and disorder. Treatment is required when the disorder is recurring or long lasting, and when the symptoms cause severe distress. The aim of the treatment is to eliminate all causes of stress when the symptoms show up. The method of treatment depends on the nature of the triggers and on the severity of the symptoms. Here is a list of the most effective treatment methods:

  1. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is an effective treatment procedure for depersonalization disorder. Psychological techniques are used to help an affected person recognize his feelings and for communicating his thoughts to a therapist. Thoughts which may lead to depersonalization experience are expressed by a person in this process. Cognitive therapy is utilized for changing dysfunction thought patterns in an affected person.
  2. Medication: There are no medicines for the general treatment of depersonalization disorder. Several medicines are used to treat the symptoms. In patients who experience depression and severe anxiety, antidepressant and antianxiety medicines may be prescribed. Antipsychotic medicines are also used to cure disordered thinking and improper perception of reality.
  3. Family therapy: Family therapy educates the affected person's family about the disorder, its causes and the family members learn how to recognize the symptoms.
  4. Creative therapy: Creative therapies, such as art therapy or music therapy, enable a patient to recognize and express his feelings better in a creative and safe way.
  5. Clinical hypnosis: This process involves intense relaxation, concentration and focus of attention in order to achieve an altered state of consciousness. This makes a patient more aware, and he can explore his thoughts and feelings, which have been absent from his conscious mind.

Complete recovery from depersonalization disorder is possible for most of the patients. The symptoms go away by themselves after treatment. Treatment makes a person more effective in dealing with stress or trauma, which might act as triggers for further recurrence of this disorder. Treatment is necessary and avoiding treatment might cause severe complications later. It is recommended to consult a doctor for the best treatment measures.

Talk to your partner and may be its just a fear you face once or twice because of any problem in your body and mind but every time when you think about that problem it creates same problem. When we think positive every thing will happen positive and when we think negative every thing happen negative. So be positive for every thing and share your feeling with your partner she will understand you. Go out some where for two or three days this will create new magic in your life try to do new things with your partner. If you want any other help you can contact us.

Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. The act of eating soil (geophagia) is often related to lack of irons in the body and this is commonly seen among women who are pregnant. It is mainly the urge and craving that makes many of the women to long for soil. I suggest you to check your blood iron level and start using iron supplements. Don't worry. This is a common problem. Take care.

I can not learn anything from books and can not concentrate in studies and the worst thing is that before 2 years maths is my favorite subject but now nothing what should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am not surprised by that development. Two years ago many matters were normal but now there is the effect of the hormones. At your age I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some 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 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 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 the family goes for counseling too. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.
