I am a 21 year old male and I have problem of over masturbating these days. I addicted to it during my holidays and even now I can not get out of it. Whenever I masturbate I do not satisfy with it and so go on for 2 more times and also I feel like I have to masturbate when I'm alone. I tried meditation and physical exercise from almost a week. But I do not see any result. Please solve my problem as i'm not able to concentrate on my career. Thank you.

Yes, you are addictive to it and there is also the obsession and compulsive use. As you may be aware that masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it are to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age, you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also, you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Everyone have fears. Everyone are afraid of one or other aspect in life. Your fear about riding bike came when you fell down twice from bike. That phobia will be vanished the more you try to ride a bike or when the time passes. Don't worry about the phobia much. I suggest online phobia therapy. Take care.

Dear , quitting smoking is very easy if you have will power. Just stop it and be stubborn never to touch it. Nicotine chewing gum is available in medical stores. You can use them as an alternative to reduce craving. Slowly you can reduce them too. Take care.

People have different comfort levels in talking to people from the opposite gender. While extroverts like being the centre of attention and interacting with others, introverts may be shy in nature and are not always comfortable with social interaction. The good news is that you can overcome your phobia with the help of psychotherapy and counselling. Counselling is a completely confidential process and will help address your fears.

I was affected from a break up. I still can't forget her. I am feeling very lonely. How can I relieve from this.
Its an unfortunate happening in your life. Its a natural discomfort zone that you have entered into. It would be better if I could talk to you to get to a best prescription. Homeopathy treats such love disappointments very effectively. In my practice, many of such cases start feeling better immediately after the right prescription of homeopathic remedy. But I need to talk to you for a best prescription. However, I can prescribe a very common medicine for such maladies. Please take natrum mur 1m 3 pills each three times within half an hour at the intervals of 10 mins tonight only and then discontinue. Please report in 3 days. Please seek further advice thereafter by making a consult. Please meet your good friends who can help you counsel a bit. Use homeopathy to get rid of such problem without any side effects.

I'm having anxiety what pills should I take to reduce it because of it I can't concentrate on my work. Pls help ASAP.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist,
I'm having anxiety what pills should I take to reduce it
because of it I can't concentrate on my work. Pls help ASAP.
Hello dear. First of all instead of pills go for some therapies r meditation. Anxiety Buster #1: Start Deep-Breathing If you're not focused on how to calm your body through slow, intentional belly-breathing, you're missing out. Belly-breathing is free, location independent, and easy to implement. 1. Sit with your eyes closed and turn your attention to your breathing. Breathe naturally, preferably through the nostrils, without attempting to control your breath. 2. Be aware of the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. Place one hand on your belly, and the other on your chest. Take a deep breath for a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of three. Exhale for a count of four. The hand on your belly should go in as you inhale, and move out as you exhale. 3. Concentrate on your breath and forget everything else. Your mind will be very busy, and you may even feel that the meditation is making your mind busier, but the reality is you're just becoming more aware of how busy your mind is. 4. Resist the temptation to follow the different thoughts as they arise, and focus on the sensation of the breath. If you discover that your mind has wandered and is following your thoughts, immediately return it to the breath. 5. Repeat this as many times as necessary until your mind settles on the breath. Don't wait to begin belly-breathing. The sooner you make this a daily habit, the quicker you'll feel relaxed. When you implement belly-breathing, you start the day in a here-and-now state. Better yet, you're not wasting time worrying about the future, or reliving the past. Anxiety Buster #2: Meditate instead of Medicate Calm is an inside job. Give yourself the gift of serenity and start the day with ten minutes of solitude and positive energy. Think calm, measured and open-minded, and your daily activities will correspond. Anxiety Buster #3: Practice Self-Care Get a massage, a mani-pedi, or a haircut. Nothing says polished and well-maintained like a sexy, healthy glow. If money is tight, look for a discount salon or a training school which offers quality services for people on a budget. So they don't serve peppermint tea on a silver tray -- close your eyes and imagine that five-star service while you take in the pampering you deserve. Anxiety Buster #4: Eliminate Soda That morning jolt of joe can jumpstart your day and provide warmth and comfort, but anything with high fructose corn syrup and 177 other ingredients will not. If you're accustomed to that 3: 00 p.m. Dr. Pepper, switch it out for a soothing green tea. Not only does the caffeine jack up your central nervous system, soda depletes vitamins and minerals from your diet and wreaks havoc on your smile. Teeth become susceptible to cavities when the acid level of your saliva falls below a certain point. If you drink soda all day, the outer layers of your teeth begin to lose minerals and cavities form. Many dental plans do not cover root canals + you'll end with a huge bill. Speaking of which: Anxiety Buster #5: Trim the Fat from Your Budget Financial stress is a common reason people contact me for psychotherapy. Debt will keep you up at night and contribute to feelings of low self-worth and hopelessness. Take charge of your finances and stop spending on non-essentials. Track your daily expenses for a week or two and decide where you can cut back. Notice the items you accumulate mindlessly. Possible eliminators: Switch out your cable TV for Netflix Contact your car insurance carrier, your mobile device company, or your credit card company and ask if they'll reduce your bill Cancel your newspaper delivery during the week and opt for the Sunday paper, or an online service, instead Anxiety Buster #6: Get Rid of the Clutter Do you ever wonder how much time is lost when you can't find your car keys, or that package of Epson 400 color ink? Chances are you've got too much stuff clogging up your living space. Try this quick organization hack: 1. Choose a drawer, cabinet or closet 2. Categorize the stuff you don't use 3. Make three piles for a) Items to throw away, b) Items to donate, and c) Items to sell Hold a yard sale and use the money to. Anxiety Buster #7: Plan a Day Trip When you spend time in nature, you give your mind and body a much needed break from the hustle and bustle which causes you to Google things like "How to get rid of anxiety" in the first place. Chances are no matter where you live, there's a serene, interesting and charming place within a couple hours. Anxiety Buster #8: Go to Bed Early This may sound impossible if you're accustomed to staying up late to catch up on the To-Do list. But this one's a MUST. Sleep deprivation is a huge anxiety culprit. Inadequate shuteye can amplify the brain's anticipatory reactions, upping overall anxiety levels, according to research. "We all have anticipatory anxiety, explains researcher Fugen Neziroglu. "Having moderate levels of anxiety about doing well is important. But it can be destructive when it begins to interfere with your life. It's impossible to have healthy emotional functioning without adequate sleep. Don't burn the midnight oil in hopes of catching up on the weekends. Unused sleep minutes don't roll over. Anxiety Buster #9 Wake up 15 Minutes Early Like most anxious people, you're probably rushing around in the morning and yelling at everyone in your wake, "Hurry up! We're going to be late! Go slowly, and set yourself up for a relaxed day ahead. If you start to worry about the To-Do list, take a deep breath and think, There is enough time. Anxiety Buster #10: Get Your Lavender On! Lavender oil has many healing properties and can be used as a natural remedy to reduce anxiety and other nervous conditions. There are many ways to incorporate lavender into your calm tool kit: 1. Add essential lavender oil to your bath water for a calming bath. Use water infused with lavender leaves to soothe painful joints and muscles. 2. Fall asleep quicker when you add a few drops to a tissue and place under your pillow. 3. Use lavender in an oil diffuser to help with insomnia. The sweet woody smell of the lavender oil helps you to fall asleep and stay asleep. 4. For headaches, apply lavender oil to a cotton ball or your fingertips and massage slowly into your temples. The smell will relax you as the oil eases your headache. 5. Lavender is used in aromatherapy massage as a muscle relaxant. Massage the oil into the skin and unknot the muscles of the back and reduce spasms. 6. Lavender can be used as an expectorant. It breaks up the mucous from nasal and chest congestion that accompanies a cold. 7. Inhale lavender oil to help with pain management, especially after a workout, a therapy session, or surgery. Anxiety Buster #11: Reduce Caffeine, Sugar and Processed Foods From Your Diet Caffeine can cause heart palpitations if you ingest too much. Caffeine also can trigger panic or anxiety attacks, especially if you have an anxiety disorder. Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, can also cause palpitations. Sugar acts as an adrenal stimulant and can cause anxiety or even panic attacks. Other offensive foods include those containing refined flour products, and even wheat since this causes inflammation. Besides caffeine, and sugar, food allergies are a big contributing factor in your overactive central nervous system. Do this step along with #12. Anxiety Buster #12: Go Green! Diet affects anxiety. A morning glass of green juice can get you on the right side of calm. For a different and delicious way to get your daily vegetables try this recipe: Combine one banana or green apple, a bunch of kale, sliced ginger, one lime, cucumber slices, a few ice cubes, and a cup of water to a blender or juicer. For added protein, add an egg, yogurt, nuts, or protein powder.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

What is the solution to avoid the thinking of single thing more then one time in a day?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

What is the solution to avoid the thinking of single thing more then one time in a day?
The simple truth about our mind is. The more you try to avoid thinking about something, the more you think about it. Our brain does not recognize no - in any form. So when you say I want to avoid thinking about this. What is highlighted and recognizes is. So you will start thinking about this. Now in order to change this pattern of thought, what you need to do is to give a suggestion which is positive. Instead of this repeated thought, what would you like to replace it with? make that as a goal. For example, I would like to focus on that. Every time the thought of this comes, you tell yourself that I want to focus on that. Regular meditation is a wonderful way to make this switch. So try guided meditation to begin with. It is very simple yet effective breath awareness techniques which helps to rewire your brain to something positive. You may goodle guided metitatio audio and you shall be able to find few good ones. Choose the one which you like the most. Do both the things on a regular basis, and you will see positive result in 2 to 4 weeks. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Memory is related to understanding 1. Always emphasize comprehension (understanding the topic) rather than cramming. 2. Divide task into smaller chunks - make points - ask your self the basic questions - What was there in the topic, Who did what , When, Where, Why and How? If you are able to answer these questions , you will generally remember it for long. 3. Revise the points orally before sleeping. 4. Keep yourself well hydrated- have water before sitting down to study. 5. Stop studying if you feel you can't understand- Take a short break for 10 mins, have a glass of water, stretch and get back to studying

Masturbation has no connection with poor concentration or weak mental abilities. Its a MYTH. Feel free to masturbate and enjoy your fantasies. The only loss you experience by masturbating is low satisfaction. You can not substitute a real partner with an imagined one. You will always keep craving for real thing if you will keep entertaining yourself with substitutes. Japanese youth is making use of sex toys and dummy women to satisfy their sexual urges, They are becoming anhedonic day by day. Anhedonia means reduced sense of pleasure in day to day activities. That means overall pleasure feelings get affected by paraphilic tendencies like masturbation or fetishism. So you must build confidence to approach a girl. You have believed that masturbation is your destiny and you will never get a real girl (in case you do not have one as I am assuming this based on my experience). But believe me, you can get a girl in real. Your worries are due to this only. All your concerns regarding your mental health are focused on masturbation practice. But practically, these worries are needless.

Hi lybrate-user, a few questions for you, which will help in better insight into your concern. Does it affect your health, work performance or motivation right now, according to you? as you know, smoking has health consequences and in that respect, it may harm your lungs especially if you are already prone to asthma or respiratory issues for example. You will have to see that it does not hamper your daily life or functioning and when it does, or if it does as of now, you should considering quitting. Consult a psychologist near you if you have issues quitting on your own. All the best.

Suffering from depression for last few days. Getting pills. But no effects. Please help.
Dear lybrate-user, Anti-depressant medications typically take a couple of weeks to show their effects. Also, depression can be handled by other methods such as psychotherapy or advanced counseling. I think that at this time you need to be a little more patient and wait for a few more days. Then, an increase in dose, change of medicines or psychotherapy may be needed depending upon the situation. In any case, the ventual outcome shall definitely be favourable. Don't worry, take care!

You have anxiety disorder and mind relaxation by meditation and other means can be tried. Being 18 year old female, it would be useful to do a tsh test to know our thyroid state as disorders can cause anxiety. Once this is ruled out you can try other means. Regards.
