When someone is sitting near me or my side I am having tendency to look at him frequently and while getting touched I am having tendency to tight my muscles. I have consulted a doctor before he told that it is ocd. Please help I am a student and I think I could not afford a paid service now.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your problem of ocd. How much of your tightening of muscles trouble you? if these things don't bother you much, live with it without treatment. If it interferes with your studies or relationships, please do exposure and response prevention technique. In this technique you gradually expose yourselves to least distressing situation to most distressing situation and try to prevent the tightening of muscles. It will cause severe anxiety for you. But if tolerate it for 30 -90 minutes, you will get habituated to the anxiety. If you want take the help one family member or friend's help t0 prevent you from the response. Most of this technique you can learn from the internet. All the best.

How to improve our mental ability without any yoga and tell me also that how can I use time management at time of mental work like study, playing games, using any other activity?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your brain is like a muscle. You need to exercise it regularly. The exciting thing is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to increase your brain capacity. All you need to do is invest a little time to regularly train your brain. So what can you do? Here are 10 simple ways you can increase your brain power and improve your intelligence! 1. Do something new When you experience something ‘new’ you actually ‘stimulate’ your brain! Don’t get stuck in a rut doing the same old things – the only way to change the structure of your brain is to do something new. This creates new neural pathways, increasing your intelligence. You could take a new route to work, try a new recipe for dinner, or even a new form of exercise – mix it up! 2. Exercise regularly It’s been proven that regular exercise helps to increase brain function and enhances neurogenesis. This means that every time you exercise you are creating new brain cells! Get off the couch and get moving! Your brain will thank you for it :) 3. Train your memory How often do you hear people say “I wish I had a better memory?’ Yet no-one does anything about this! If you discipline yourself to memorise phone numbers and other important numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license) you will start to see a marked improvement in your memory 4. Be curious Instead of taking everything at face value, get into the habit of questioning everyday things/products, services that you come into contact with. By being ‘curious’ and questioning everything, you force your brain to innovate & create new ideas. Curiosity may have killed that cat, more importantly it created super important things like electricity and computers! 5. Think positive Stress & anxiety kill existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has shown that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts and make an effort to replace them with positive ones. 6. Eat healthy Our diets have a HUGE impact on brain function. Our brains consume over 20% of all nutrients & oxygen that we consume – so remember to feed your brain with the good stuff! (i.e. Fresh fruit and veg & plenty of OMEGA 3 oils found in oily fish) 7. Read a book Reading relieves tension & stress (brain-cell killers) because it’s a form of escapism. Research has also shown that using your imagination is a great way to train your brain because you force your mind to ‘picture’ what you are imagining. Reading is a great way to trigger your imagination! 8. Get enough sleep Sleep is like a mini detox for the brain. This is when your body regenerates cells and removes all the toxins that have built up during the day. Get to bed between the hours of 9 pm and midnight to benefit from the most effective hours of sleep! 9. Avoid using the GPS Gone are the days of map reading! Geo Satellite Navigation may have made our lives easier, it has also made our brains lazier and less efficient at the same time! Go back to the old school and use a map to navigate every now and then (this exercises the part of your brain responsible for understanding spatial relationships). 10. Stop Using the calculator Remember back at school when we were taught to use our brains to do simple sums like times tables? It’s incredible how we now rely on devices like smart-phones and laptops to calculate really simple equations. Resist the urge to work things out using an external device – and use the device you were born with – your brain!

Keep mobile switched off or vibrator mode when studying. Make it a point to bring your mind from distractions to study and work. If you control your mind, mind becomes your friend, but if you allow your mind to wander or be distracted, then mind becomes your enemy.

It must be very painful for you to have let go of a relationship that you were holding on for long time sailing through the ups and downs of the same. You have grieved for really long, 15 months is too long! about time to let go of her, she has clearly indicated that she has moved on and you should too. Ups and downs are good acid tests for relationships, you may also need to see your role in them. Learn from your mistakes and give life another chance. You may need to forgive and forget her, not for her sake but for yours. This is your life and what you want to do with it, depends on you. Whether you choose to ruin it because your girl friend has left you or you want to give priority to other important things in life like your studies, then career, your family etc is up to you. I'm sure you value your parents, your studies and other people around you, and who might be there to support you and care for you. Life is beautiful and you have choice to make it even more beautiful. So throw away any gift or pic or things you may have of her, delete her contact num and don't try to connect with her. Do it not because you want to hate her but because you want to free yourself from those memories. Don't hold any kind of grudge against her either. Just let her go from your mind. Don't try hard to forget. Just look at other things around you that need your attention, go around with friends, have fun, make schedule for your studies, set goals for your career, dream big. And when you focus on all the goods around you and the loving people that you have, forgetting her won't be difficult. Indulge in self care and love yourself. Take care.

Hello, I am sorry for your loss. Life becomes hard when you loose your close one. But we need to cope up with the situation. Keeping everything with yourself will increase the burden. You need to talk to people you trust or make new friends even if you don't like it. Try and express your feelings in a way you like. Distract your self to the other activities that you like. You have a great life ahead, you have studies and a career to take care. It will take time but you will come over it.

Dear lybrate-user, masturbation is a normal physiological sign of you growing up. When your testosterone level is high when you mature to manhood, you feel the urge to masturbate. Though biologically mature at 16-18 years sociologically or economically you are mature to get married. So accept that masturbation proves that you are a man and it is a normal outlet before marriage. But you are suffering from depression which needs antidepressant treatment. Both rexipra and prothiaden are good antidepressant tablets. You can take them during examination also. It will give you mor confidence to give your best. Restart both tablets and go back to a psychiatrist - not neurologist. Depending on the improvement, he may increase the dose.

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

B.A.(H)Psychology, M.A.Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Noida
Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

One of the unique forms of depression is the Seasonal affective disorder which is characterized by the onset of depression with the start of the winter months and a full remission during spring time. Seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression that affects about 1 in 20 people around the world on average. One of the common therapies used to treat this disorder is light therapy.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy is the controlled exposure to specific amounts of bright light on a daily basis as a medicinal tool to correct depression and other mental disorders. It has been noticed that the lack of exposure to lights may trigger certain mental disorders within patients and controlled exposure to bright light over a stipulated period of time every day may be able to correct this effectively.

How it works?

Brightness within the daily world is usually measured with the unit of lux. For all types of artificial lights, the measure of luminosity is estimated via this unit. Human beings have an automatic trigger where low light levels for continued periods may cause depression. A clear sunny day outdoors will have a measurement of 10,000 lux and this is the recommended dosage for exposure for people suffering from depression.

It has been seen in studies that people with severe forms of Seasonal Affective disorder responded well to this therapy. They were treated 30 minutes daily with light exposure and over time the study showed that it significantly improved the moods of the people.

Some of the reasons why light therapy proves to be an effective treatment option for SAD include:

  • It resets the circadian rhythm - Controlled exposure to light will trigger the hormones that control the circadian rhythms or the daily rhythms of sleeping and walking cycles and thus will help reduce depression.
  • It triggers neurotransmitter function - Light exposure triggers certain neurotransmitter functions which work like an antidepressant and thus relieves stress or other internal functions that may cause depression.
  • Results in an increase in serotonin levels - This hormone is very important for mood elevation and is known to rise with increased light levels and decrease with low light levels. Controlled exposure can definitely help improve serotonin levels for lessening depression symptoms.
