How to control my stress during exams as I always put myself in trouble during exams.
First thing about exams is anxiety n what causes anxiety would be your unknown fear for it. Lets be clear about what is the reason behind your anxiety. If your preparation is not going well or if you fear of the results or are you just scared of the environment in the exam room. Once you get to know the unlying reason for your anxiety you can also think about what you can do to overcome it. Hope its helpful.

How do we increase our strength power (will power).?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, will power is a general term. We talk about self confidence, self esteem and self respect. All these comes from experience. If I ask you to jump from a 10 story building, and if you jump, that is called foolishness, not will power. If you have that experience, then it is willpower. Hope you understand.

I have my CA final due in may 2016. I need to reduce my sleep to 4-5 hrs daily till my exams. Pls help me. Presently I sleep for about 6.5 hrs. Also please give me some tips to improve concentration and to type of foods I should eat to keep my brain sharp or any exercise for the same.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I will advise you not to reduce your sleep. You must sleep at least 6 hours in a day and please maintain it. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Hi, We can not change the world around us so why not change ourselves. Focus on yourself. Try to feel good pamper yourself. It will lead to your high self esteem. See and analyse what is that your partner is looking and which he feels you are lacking. work on that. don't run for attention. Be confident. As far as looking at girls, it is very common for guys and girls to do that. Until and unless he is done something serious like cheating on you, you should not take it seriously. Still if it does, try to rationalize the situation.

He has a habit of drinking not always but anytime going out means have to drink. so how should I stop him from drinking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are the wife you must tell me exactly how much he drinks. I know of many wives who make a big issue when the man drinks socially but she is under the impression that he is an alcoholic and then harasses him. Over time he will willfully drink and may develop alcoholism, inadvertently. The cause: a nagging wife over something innocuous. If he is drinking and misbehaving, you certainly have some concern even so please talk to him nicely and find out if he needs help. If he is insistent and is not aware that he is making a nuisance of himself, then you first refuse to go out with him anymore if he drinks like that. If he still continues, you must take him for rehabilitation, even against his will, if necessary. Some centers will come home and pick him up when he is in a drunken state, but they will need written permission from you to do so. Now make sure you are not the cause of his drinking by your over-reaction.

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS

You can avoid negative thoughts by practising looking forwards and focusing on strength and not weakness/ solutions and not problems/ looking after others and not own and responsible to all around.This comes by practice. Anxiety disappears if you think and solve any conflict immediately. If not you will be in a fix. You need to exercise daily meditate for few minutes do power yoga and breathing exercises slowly and yoga nidra. Try these and you will be laughing.

How can I stop smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You may experience difficulty in your first few attempts. Don't give up: 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. 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.

You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Respected doctors. I have an general question. Is depression curable. If yess, is it curable without medicine.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Respected doctors. I have an general question. Is depression curable. If yess, is it curable without medicine.
It is very much curable if treated earlier. These days chronic stress due to our life style and work demand feeling stressful, burnt out might lead of depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You couldd google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps if you are interested in short 4 to 8 week resilience training you may contact me. Wishing you very best.

Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Alcohol tends to worsen anxiety and so does nicotine. If you continue to smoke and drink, your anxiety will not remit. Also there is chance of other problems happening, like fearfulness, paranoia, etc. Your medication should never be taken with alcohol as the sedation may worsen, making you vulnerable to problems caused by over sedation (aspiration, accidental death, etc). Ideally for a proper recovery, you need to take the medication over a long period of time. The exact duration will be determined by your doctor depending on your response, compliance and improvement. Meditation, yoga and exercise are adjuvants to treatment, not replacement. If the condition is serious enough to warrant medication, merely doing these activities will not be sufficient. Lastly, these medications are not like Crocin or painkillers that you take them as and when you have a problem. If you want complete resolution of your symptoms, you need to take them as per the advice of your doctor and for the proper duration. This sort of experimentation is pointless and futile, with no benefit for you.
