I am glad to see your interest in self improvement. That is the sign of recovery. You may learn some meditation or self hypnosis techniques to control mind. Mind goes into negative thoughts like worries in depression by conditioning. Wee can learn to reprogram our mind by deconditioning the old automatic thinking habits. Mindfulness breathing exercise and hypnotherapy you can learn. Books: power of now. Power of your subconscious mind.

Sometimes I am not confident in doing things when someone speaks ill about me. What should I do?

Sometimes I am not confident in doing things when someone speaks ill about me. What should I do?
Step 1: Preparing for Your Journey The first step involves getting yourself ready for your journey to self-confidence. You need to take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, get yourself in the right mindset for your journey, and commit yourself to starting it and staying with it. In preparing for your journey, do these five things: Look at What You've Already Achieved Think about your life so far, and list the ten best things you've achieved in an "Achievement Log. Perhaps you came top in an important test or exam, played a key role in an important team, produced the best sales figures in a period, did something that made a key difference in someone else’s life, or delivered a project that meant a lot for your business. Put these into a smartly formatted document, which you can look at often. And then spend a few minutes each week enjoying the success you’ve already had! Think About Your Strengths Next, use a technique like SWOT Analysis Add to My Personal Learning Plan to take a look at who and where you are. Looking at your Achievement Log, and reflecting on your recent life, think about what your friends would consider to be your strengths and weaknesses. From these, think about the opportunities and threats you face. Make sure that you enjoy a few minutes reflecting on your strengths! Think About What's Important to You, and Where you Want to Go Next, think about the things that are really important to you, and what you want to achieve with your life. Setting and achieving goals is a key part of this, and real confidence comes from this. Goal setting is the process you use to set yourself targets, and measure your successful hitting of those targets. See our article on goal setting Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to use this important technique, or use our Life Plan Workbook to think through your own goals in detail (see the "Tip" below). Inform your goal setting with your SWOT Analysis. Set goals that exploit your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, realize your opportunities, and control the threats you face. And having set the major goals in your life, identify the first step in each. Make sure it’s a very small step, perhaps taking no more than an hour to complete! Start Managing Your Mind At this stage, you need to start managing your mind. Learn to pick up and defeat the negative self-talk which can destroy your confidence. See our article on rational positive thinking Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to do this. Further useful reading includes our article on imagery Add to My Personal Learning Plan – this teaches you how to use and create strong mental images of what you'll feel and experience as you achieve your major goals – there’s something about doing this that makes even major goals seem achievable! And Then Commit Yourself to Success! The final part of preparing for the journey is to make a clear and unequivocal promise to yourself that you are absolutely committed to your journey, and that you will do all in your power to achieve it. If as you’re doing it, you find doubts starting to surface, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally. If they dissolve under scrutiny, that’s great. However if they are based on genuine risks, make sure you set additional goals to manage these appropriately. For help with evaluating and managing the risks you face, read our Risk Analysis and Management Add to My Personal Learning Plan article. Either way, make that promise!

Better go for a psychiatric evaluation by a paediatric psychiatrist/clinical psychologist to rule out any developmental disability. Early intervention is half cure.

Depression adversely affects every aspect of our lives – including our relationships – and when one partner is depressed, the relationship may suffer badly. Depression can cause adverse effects on any activity that requires energy, spontaneity and good co-ordination – and that includes sex. And, sadly, lots of individuals who are depressed often appear to lose interest in sex. •In men, the general damping down of brain activity causes feelings of tiredness and hopelessness, which may be associated with loss of libido and erection problems. Some days will seem better than others. On your better days, try to make an effort to show love and appreciation to your partner. •Try to go for a walk every day, preferably with your partner. Walking not only gets you out in the fresh air, but, like other forms of exercise, it releases endorphins in the brain. These are 'happy' chemicals that rapidly elevate your mood. And there's considerable evidence to suggest that exercise can be as good for combating depression as any antidepressant. •Even during your saddest periods, try to spot happy moments like a bird singing or a new flower blooming in your garden. Try to train yourself to notice three of these heart-warming moments per day. •You may have an odd relationship with food while you're depressed (you could have little appetite or constantly comfort eat), but try to eat five pieces of fruit per day. This is a caring thing to do for yourself and is good for your physical and mental health. •Listen to music that matters to you. •Have faith that the depression will pass and that you will enjoy your life again. •Even if you don't feel like full-on sex, do make the effort to have a cuddle. If you are worried that cuddling will project you into full sex when you don't want it, just tell your partner that you're not feeling like having sex, but that you would really like to cuddle up. If you do this, you may both feel a lot better. Touch and closeness can keep a relationship. Regards,

Hi, thinking about and planning to quit may be the best decision of you life. According to who over half people who continue to smoke will die of smoking related diseases. Thats a very high risk and a risk you shouldnt be taking. Make a list of advantage and disadvantage of smoking, as well as those of quitting. Choose a day to quit, announce your decision to family and friend, throw away all smoking related paraphenalia and act on your decision. While quitting think of one day at a time and fight one crave at a time. Reduce and ward off crave with distraction with a healthy snack or juice or fruits. Substitute time saved from smoking with a new hobby. Take up exercise to reap benefits of better breathing and lung capacity. Find an anchor (wife, girlfriend or partners/ friends) to help stay on track. Additinnalky, I suggest you seek psychiatric support for motivational sessions and susbstitue prescribing including noctine gums or patches, and anitcraving medicine where becessary. Research suggest that there is 60-70 percent chances of failing at quitting without professional help amd nicotine substitue.

You have to reduce stress by meditation, yoga, and mind relaxation methods. If you tackle problems with a calm mind you will be able to do. As you feel exhausted check your blood for cbc, tsh and inform me privately.

A diabetic person also need to attend counselling session along with their medications. Her symptoms are part of the illness. Besides this, it must be difficult for you to manage with your mother's doubting nature. It may not be possible to control everything but only those things that are under your control. Some things you may have to live with and in this case you need to know how to manage and cope with it. Counselling will help you to find this balance and tools to manage your issues in the best way. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.
