The most common mistake people suffering from insomnia make is that they'try' to sleep. This causes frustration and that drives sleep away further. What you should do is follow'sleep hygiene' 1. Avoid stimulants like tea/ coffee in the evening. 2. Avoid stimulating brain activities like gaming just before sleeping. 3. Use your bed only for sleep. Do not go to your bed unless you are sleepy. 4. Avoid heavy exercise after 8 p. M. Do exercise every day preferably in the morning. 5. Avoid day time naps. 6. Have a glass of milk before bed time. Avoid heavy meals at night. 7. Do not try to fall asleep. You need to be relaxed to sleep. If you don't get sleep then get up and do something boring. 8. Tell yourself'you are not going to sleep' sometimes this tricks your brain into falling asleep. 9. If the problem persists visit a doctor, preferably a psychiatrist to find out the cause of insomnia.

You have to stop smoking. These are all signs of developing problems primarily due to tobacco use. To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

hello you are more weak emotionally. please let yourself be strong again. you can do it. the only thing u need to do is just take care of these 5 things * exercise or yoga- meditation.Regular exercise can be as effective. Not only does exercise boost serotonin, endorphins, and other feel-good brain chemicals, it triggers the growth of new brain cells and connections, just like antidepressants do. Even a half-hour daily walk can make a big difference.� *Nutrition.�Eating well is important for both your physical and mental health. Eating small, well-balanced meals throughout the day will help you keep your energy up and minimize mood swings.� *Sleep.�Sleep has a strong effect on mood. When you don't get enough sleep irritability, moodiness, sadness, and fatigue increases. Make sure you're getting enough sleep each night.� *Social support.�Strong social networks reduce isolation. *Stress reduction.�Make changes in your life to help manage and reduce stress.

That is unfortunate, but what were your reasons for loving him? maybe he wasn' t looking for a long term relationship. What made you trust him so much that you didn' t pick up the signs of cheating? most people will leave telltale signs of cheating and disinterest. To get over his memory, you need to look at it from a different way. You can t change what happened, but you can change how you look and respond to that pain and experience. Now you are a free bird and have more time on your hands to do things that you wanted to do but didn' t get time to do. Learn your lessons and move on. Every experience, good or bad has a lot to teach. Learn your lessons and see what and how you contributed to this breakup. Decide to do things differently next time and reduce possibilities of it failing. Remember what was good in the relationship and cherish those moments as good memories. Don' t blame yourself because everyone makes a mistake and you have just started out in life. Next time you will know better. Don' t visit places which you frequented, remove things that remind you of him, meet other people who are supportive of you. Keep yourself busy doing things which are meaningful to you and will take you forward in life. A counsellor will be able to help you mend your broken heart, pick up the strings and start a new life again. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Marital relationship is never based on physical or sexual relationship. If that woman is not interested in marrying you, there will be specific reasons which is apt for her. You must have tried all you can to pacify her. Nothing worked. In that case, I suggest you not to disturb her. I also suggest online counseling for you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user - it really needs the courage to express yourself face to face. You experience the social anxiety and there are the ways to deal with it. Your unrealistic thoughts stops you from experiencing your feelings at face to face. Thoughts may be' I can't express myself' if I express myself, others are going to laugh at me' I get stuck up while saying' there may be more. It has to be expressed from your end. These unrealistic thoughts create anxiety feelings which stop us from talking to others face to face. It is important to deal your unrealistic thoughts from reality perspective. This will help to bring down your anxiety level.

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 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. 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. 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 sugar and junk food.

Hye, thanks for the query. At times poor nutrition can cause nutrition insufficiency leading to low stamina which actually converts to laziness. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

Dear , it is a myth that hair oils can cure stress. It can sooth your skull skin. Tension and stress is part of life. Rather work stress has become an essential part of working people's life. But you should also be aware that stress is most common factor for physical and mental illnesses. In your case, you need to understand your stressors and change your thinking and thereby stress. Cognitive therapy and rational emotive therapy should do good to you. Contact me with every detail and I will help you for sure. Take care.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

DPM, MBBS

A better and more specific form of meditation is called as mindfulness. It simply means being aware of your present environment. Start with the external environment. Take in one type of sensory stimuli at a time. For example, select a comfortable place, find a comfortable position and close your eyes. Focus on all the different sounds you can hear. Count them. Try to determine the direction. Rate them on their intensity. Next, you can look around and take in your visual environment. You may count the number or red/blue/green objects, number or squares/circles/cubes/spheres. Similarly you can use your smell and touch sensory systems. Choose a particular time of the day and do it for at least 5 minutes at a stretch but you can start with a few seconds also. It's difficult! do it as frequently as you can. Actually, mindfulness is not just meditation, it's a way of life. Gradually you will start paying attention to your internal environment also, your physiology, your emotions, your thoughts and so on. This way you will be learning to pay active attention. The part of your brain that is involved in focusing will get exercise. There are games available on all platforms to work out your concentration. That may help too.
