Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of rock rose + 3 drops of scleranthus + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of honeysuckle. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every night.

Procrastination - 5 Ways You Can Beat It!

Procrastination - 5 Ways You Can Beat It!

The activity of delaying or putting off something is known as procrastination. Even the best individuals battle with it consistently. However, some people accomplish something that the majority of us do not- they push past it. They do not permit it to influence their work. They develop brilliant and beneficial techniques to break past mental obstructions and remain productive. Here are a few ways with which you can beat procrastination:

  1. Try to start: Starting something can be very difficult. However, in case that you can get over that part, you will have some level of energy. Even your brain will probably goad you to continue dealing with the task. This happens because of a mental phenomenon called the Zeigarnik impact. It says that unfinished tasks will probably stay in your memory. This is exactly why planned things and to-do lists consistently appear in your mind until you finish them.
  2. Separate huge tasks into smaller assignments: Enormous tasks can frighten you, so you put them off. By taking that huge task and separating it into smaller assignments, you can decrease your burden make a start. This could include concentrating on one part of the research to begin with.
  3. Ask yourself “why?”: It is easier to inspire yourself to accomplish something you value. In case you are attempting to complete something, why not spend a couple of minutes asking yourself precisely why you need to do it and why it is so important to you. Weighing out the positives and negatives of the task and its benefits for you, can make you decide and perform better.
  4. Attempt to take a break: For those who procrastinate out of having worked too much, it does not mean you have to complete the task at once. This is known as the "sunk cost bias." The "sunk cost bias" influences players, speculators, and even a procrastinator. They feel that the task will need to be completed now and cannot be completed in the future. In some cases, a task simply does not mean you have to work on it more and more after hours.
  5. Go easy on yourself: To beat procrastination, you should be strict with yourself. However, that is not what science says. In case that you have procrastinated till now, you will probably begin on time going ahead. You need to show yourself some sympathy for your previous laziness instead of thrashing yourself about it.

Self-control is an important quality many successful individuals have. Having self-control permits you to carefully understand why you are procrastinating and can likewise, work towards it. When you understand why you are doing so, it will be easier for you to make a plan to beat it. This will allow you to see the underlying cause of your problem as well.

Hi, I'm a acute transient psychosis patient diagnosed at the age of 14. Initially my dosage was very high now im 25 years old consuming 500 mg Divalporate and 50 mg Quitapin plain. Im good when I do not have any relapses and very effective. I completed B. Tech Mechanical with 60 % and got placed in a company as well. Right now im doing software courses. I have few questions: 1 .When I will get rid of my medicine? 2. With these dosage if I can act like a average person so I wonder if im not consuming these medicines I will be more effective with work as well as studies but my relapse will happen in a year or sometime after 2 years. So, is there any alternative for these medicines? 3. I visited many doctors, some say you are suffering from psychosis disorder, some say bipolar or schizophrenia, some say sleeping problems. Why this many doubts in my case. So, what exactly im suffering from? Though I consumed many dosages initially but when I was reviewed with a doctor (Psychiatrist) He advised me the doctors are giving high dosage it can be reduced to minimum. Since then im in contact with that doctor and that is how my dosage is reduced but I want to know whether it can reduced or is there any need of these medicines. I suffer from relapses in a year, sometime 2 years. I will appreciate if any psychiatrist clears my doubts. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, Whether you have transient psychosis or bipolar or schizophrenia or sleeping problem, it is for the psychiatrist to diagnose and treat you properly. With this dose you are without relapse and acting like average person. Why do you want to lose those effects of drugs. Bipolar disorder is a relapsing disorder - sometimes with high overconfident mood sometimes with low self esteem sad mood. Both will be kept under control with valproate and quetiapine. During active phase you may need different dose and during normal maintenance phase you will need different dose. Leave the dose decision to the doctor. Each relapse at this age will stagnate your future - mania because you will lose your name, fame and money - depression you will your energy, interest and may lose life by suicide. Why do you want to have relapses? Continue valproate and quetiapine as prescribed.

Hi Lybrate user Try to stay positive. Remember that your value does not decrease just because someone else fails to see it. Remind yourself you have successfully completed your b tech. Just think about your past hard works, and don't give up. Make a list of 10 things you have done, and are thankful for. Try to focus on what you have done for improving your self confidence. And for your laziness- develop a routine or create a everyday list of all things you have to do and try to follow it, at least one weeks. All the Best.

Premature greying is greying before the age of 30 yr. After that age it is considered as natural physiological process. There are various reasons for getting grey hair. Nutritional deficiency, stress, thyroid problem are few of the reasons. Treatment is available but you need to consult trichologist.

Please note the following for your condition: The head should be massaged slowly with oil or shampoo while bathing or cleaning hairs resulting blood circulation becomes fast and the skin of the head is protected from dryness. Shampoo should be used only two times a week. Hairs should be washed with curd for removing dandruff. Spicy or fried foodstuffs should not be eaten. Excessive cream or jell should not be applied on hairs. Please also take Nux vom - once daily at night. For further queries get back to me.

Generalised body pain with high ESR could be due to arthritis specially in young males it can be due to Spondyloarthropathy (Ankylosing Spondylitis ). You need to undergo detailed evaluation and other blood tests too . Consult a Pain specialist or Rheumatologist. Physical therapy plays an important role in such diseases. 1. Get involved in exercise regimen like swimming and walking daily 2. Perform back stretching and strengthening exercises daily. 3. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 4.Apply warm fomentation on back muscles. Consult again for further queries.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

This is for my 15 years old nephew. He has anxiety problem. Of late, he went to himachal where he was 95% normal. He had only time fixation ie particular work to be done at a particular time. He ate well and loved to have a bath. But he wanted to stay there and not come back to Mumbai. He wanted to stay in Hotels and enjoy himself. His mother forcibly brought him back ultimately. Now he does not eat well, and not had bath since the last 3 months. He eats only Once a day. And he says he will only eat and have bath once he is out of Mumbai. He speaks in code language with his mother saying that he feels scared if she speaks in normal language. But he speaks in normal language ie English and hinder with outsiders. He refuses to open his eyes at home saying he feels scared but opens his eyes once he is out in The restaurant. He is paranoid about home and the areas around. How he is going to behave at a particular place ie home is pre planned by him. Eg: closing eyes, not letting others speak at home etc. We have a cordial home environment and this boy is the only child in the house. Thus pampered. Kindly let us know. We are worried.

Yes, he is paranoid as well as obsessed personality. Needs to be counseled on regular interval along with oral medication. So, please consult a good Psychologist. Of course, you can also take medicines from a homoeopath nearby to your place (as there is no side -effects of homoeopathic medicine)!

Thalassemia is blood related disease. Blood transfusion should be done throughout the life. Monthly once change the blood. Injecting new bottle of month it is necessary. Hematologist is the right person to treat this disease. Search good heamotologist. MD, DM in hematology is the right person. In his observation blood transfusion must be done appropriately. MD is also treat this problem. But he is not right person. Better to search a good qualified hematologist. Generally children affected this disease. It is very rare disease. But it is curable. It needs monthly transfusion of blood. Voluntary organisations also there in india. For mentally retardation occupational therapist, rehabilitation psychologist do their work properly. Better to meet right professional to come out of this problem. It needs lot of patience. Both are not cured in some months. It needs years treatment. So up to that wait patiently. Do not treat him psychological ill person. Family support and co operation is compulsory. Take proper step and do needful job. Ok all the best.

Just taking medication will only correct the chemical imbalances in the brain. While you also need to learn techniques to handle situations with ease and aplomb without losing your mental and emotional equilibrium. Stress has always been a part of life ans will be. It is always better to equip yourself with such tips and techniques. Counselling is such a non judgemental space whwere ou can explore the causes of your anxiety and get to more about your unhealthy outdated beliefs and replace them with healthier and updated beliefs which will leave you feeling more confident about yourself, your relationships and situations which earlier caused you stress. 2. Learning a skill which could help you feel confident is a good way of handling stress. Eg. If you are teaching young kids and you do not know how to teach them. Then it will cause you anxiety and feelings of inadequacy. The b. Ed course will give you all those skills and info that you need for teaching children. 3. Exercise everyday to manage anxiety. A good run, swim, jog will help you to calm down and relax, feeling good about yourself. Breathing exercises will help you to calm down and relax at the time of stress. Anulom vilom and bhramri are 2 pranayams which are very good for anxiety reduction. Do these everyday for 5 mins before sleeping. 3. Avoid junk like fried, processed, refined etc as it is linked to stress and anxiety. Eat more of fresh, raw and whole foods with minimum processing.
