If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Studying in the morning is best. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

You have become very sensitive and high strung to feel this much of irritability at slight noises and disturbances. It means that you are very scared about something and want to be in control to somehow lessen the fear. These sounds will become disturbing, and instead of relating to your fear, you may be getting angry, and people will become less tolerant of you. In the meantime the fear is not dealt with and there is more fear happening: sounds like a vicious cycle, I guess. But my biggest concern is this talking to yourself. It means the stress is very high. Right now you are aware that you talk to yourself but later the condition may become so adverse that you may not know that you are doing this and that can be very problematic. Meet with a psychiatrist and a counselor and discuss your problems and symptoms. They will help you deal with the issues and decide, if medication is required. Please cooperate and be sensible about seeking help. Do not delay as it can get worse and make the problem too difficult to treat in an advanced state. Also do not discontinue the therapy until it is advised by the counselor.

I am a patient of DM, IHD, PPM, HTN. taking regular medicines. What will be my ideal diet? My age is 72 years.
I hope every condition is under control. Ideal diet is not according to charts. You eat according to your constitution without comparing with others. No sugar or sweets, no bad fats, only good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/ butter and a katori of assorted nuts. Minimal salts and no packaged food as it contains lots of salt, being a preservative. Lemon juice with honey but cut down on other calories (just 30 cals in a spoon of honey) it helps to burn the fat and sugar. Fruits like guava, orange, apple can be had. Exercise like walking also burns sugar and fats.

Do assess if you are stretching yourself too much. Do you have leisure time besides preparing for your exams? it is important to keep a well planned and achievable study plan along with leisure time. If you can create a timetable and stick with it, you may have enough time to practise and revise your subjects. You can keep away the fears related to grades and concentrate on practise. Break your portions into doable parts and study accordingly. Take short occasional breaks to break the monotony of continuous study. Eat well balanced food in frequent intervals.

Don't worry, this chest pain has got nothing to do with your smoking till last year. It is most likely due to muscular cause. Be firm on your resolve of not to smoke, do regular exercise and eat good nouritious food.

That only means that you are good for others but not good enough to take care of yourself. When you listen to and help too many other people and do not take care of yourself adequately, you will experience something like a burnout i.e. you will feel the exhaustion of taking care of others and may even collapse from it. so the solution is to meet with a counselor and take personal care of yourself. This can happen to professionals like us too and so we always have a confidante to talk to. You will need to find such a person either in a counselor or a good friend who could be older and wiser to you. In the meantime, do regular exercise, eat healthily, and make sure you have good rest int eh form of sleep. You could do with a little training in handling emotions too. You can give only what you have so build up reserves of strength emotionally and psychologically if you want to continue to help others. Otherwise, just stop being there for others for some​ time.

You are into depression for sure. Depression and anxiety go together often. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 scorching 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. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

Dear , you do not have any mental problems. You are having stress disorder. You can't say you have presence of mind. You are sleeping in the afternoon and that is the cause of your head ache. Avoid sleeping inthe afternoon. Engage in outdoor games daily so as to keep stress at bay. Enjoy life. I request you to post a private question to me. I will help you. Take care.

Sir, instead of using any Pill - go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy.
