There are various psychological as well as medication based methods available to quit smoking, and results are the best when both of these approaches are combined. Nicotine replacement therapy, in addition to motivation enhancement therapy, would be advisable. Please get in touch with a psychiatrist for the above.

First of all let me tell you there is no road defined to success or victory. You have to yourself make your own path. It hardly matters what degree you take to get to your goals in life, be it a medical carrier or a pharma career. However if you feel you ought to be a doctor first and then go ahead you have an option to drop an year and give it a best shot before you give it up. Be realistic and goal oriented than just being waste fully determined in completing what you once wished for in life.

Greetings, I'm preparing for SSC (services for income tax, customs, excise etc). Recently I got a C class job in Indian Railways after that I'm not concentrating over my study, I am wasting my time. I've made a mentality that i've a job then why should I study. Help me please I've spend a lot efforts for SSC but without continuity, it's getting worse. Please advise.

If you have the commitment then focus on your studies. The current job you have is good for the time being. But I think it is a monotonous job and you will get bored of it soon (if I am wrong, I stand corrected). Even in steady jobs nowadays many people are pursuing studies to be better at their jobs. So if you are interested or need to create the interest, do so immediately and do not waste time by procrastination. Go for tuition, group studies or whatever to study. Ssc has huge prospects.

Negative thinking is more to do with your state of mind. 1. Develop self-esteem and make friends with positive thinking people. 2. Every person is unique and nobody is perfect 3. Focus on your positive qualities and feel proud of your achievements 4 Don't keep doubting yourself. 5. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule *Don’t keep grudge, anger and envy against any body. 6. Avoid fast food and eat healthy nutritious food. 7. Regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive. 8. Exercise has a positive effect. It makes you feel better. It fights the stress by creating natural and constructive outlet for releasing negative thoughts and emotions such as anger. 9. Exercise boosts the production of feel good hormones or endorphins. 10. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep 11 Keep helping others without any expectation and it gives immense satisfaction 12. If you still want some medicine, take homoeopathic medicine Alfalfa mother tincture 5 to 10 drops in half glass of water twice daily.

Dear lybrate-user. Nausea is one of the most common symptoms of anxiety. Nearly everyone in the world can think back to a time when their nervousness made them feel sick to their stomach. It's an uncomfortable symptom that is extremely common when you're in nervous situations. Anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is talking therapies that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

CBT cannot remove your problems but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you crack this cycle by breaking down overwhelming problems into smaller parts and showing you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.

Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis. CBT has been shown to be an effective way of treating a number of different mental health conditions. In addition to depression or anxiety disorders, CBT can also help people with obsessive disorder, postphobias,eating disorderssuch as anorexiaand bulimia, sleep problems such as insomnia, problems related to alcohol abuse,irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

CBT can help you to change how you think (cognitive) and what you do (behaviour). These changes can help you to feel better and breathe better. Once you are de-stressed, there is less cognitive load and your breathing centre in brain is relaxed and less stimulated. It looks for ways to improve your state of mind now.

A situation ? a problem, event or difficult situation.

From this can follow thoughts, emotions, physical feelings and actions. Each of these areas can affect the others.

How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. All these areas of life can connect like this: fiveareas.

What happens in one of these areas can affect all the others. There are helpful and unhelpful ways of reacting to most situations, depending on how you think about it. The way you think can be helpful or unhelpful.

The Situation: You have had a bad day. You are fed up? Go out shopping. As you walk down the road, someone you know walks by and, apparently, ignores you.

This starts a cascade of thoughts, emotions and action which can range from concern for the other person to actually getting in touch with the other person to find if all is well with him.

The negative way of dealing with it involves being down on yourself imagining the person does not like you, complaining of cramps or illness and finally going home to avoid the person.

The same situation has led to two very different results; depending on how you thought about the situation. How you think has affected how you felt and what you did.

So, in case you thought negatively, you have to change your thoughts and actions, pinpoint the problem, address it and find goals.

Then move towards achieving them. Evidence shows CBT works.

Dear friend getting married and moving to a big city like mumbai in it self is a huge change a d chllenge. What yiu are feeling is ina way very common feeling among young women after 18 to 24 months of marriage. The money moon period in marriage ends around this time. Now you both settle in your after marriage life and the reality sinks in. The happily everafter feeling also starts fading a little bit. Now yoh start seeing your spouses limitations and weaknesses also. Overall this is a stressful time. On a brighter side. Now you both are comfortable leaving woth each other and open to expose yourself as it is to another one. This is from where the true journey of happily ever after begins. Understanding how you both are different. Not only as an individual bit there are else some differences in your gender. Helping and supporting each other while you express how you feel and what are your needs and how could the other support you in filling the same woukd go a long way. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think what makes you happy. What you enjoy doing that bring joy and satisfaction in your day. One baby step each day would help you chart a new path and better future togather as a psychologist and life coach I have been trained to help and guide individuals through this journey I do offer weekly sessions for 3 months to 6 months where we work togather you bring about concrete changes on your life.

Dear Bikas, Welcome to lybrate. At your age, Memory problems like amnesia, dementia or Alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Develop a routine and stick to it. ... Find the right place to study or work. ... Turn off all electronic devices. ... Establish priorities via the CEO & Worker Bee modes. ... Visualize with paper. To become an active learner, you need to think about the information you are reading or listening to, and do something with what you are learning. This could include: Asking questions as you read. Make notes in your own words. Summarising what you read. Talking to someone about the information you're learning. Use your own words to discuss it with other students, friends or your family. (If you don't have a friend who'll listen, try an imaginary friend, or the family pet.) Thinking about how the new information fits in with things you already know. Thinking about how you can use the new information in your studies and in your everyday life. How to apply active learning to your studies Don't just read your course materials, do all the activities as well. Identify the main points in the material you're reading and highlight them or write them down. Try different ways of writing notes – on paper or cards, in pictures, perhaps put them into a table, a mind map or a list, or record them. Note the things in your course materials that you already know. Log onto the online forum for your course regularly. Ask questions and discuss your ideas with your fellow students. Think of three or four questions you could ask your lecturer/tutor. Then try to answer them yourself. Imagine you had to set the exam - what questions would you include? How would you answer them?

What should I do to make, my mind feel fresh during exam time? Please help me.

Why only during exam time? You must have a fresh mind always. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenic 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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.

Dear, you need to learn to focus - more on what you are capable of doing, rather than what you cannot do. You need to develop a routine for yourself - get more exercise, eat properly, have lots of water and read good books. If possible, take some counselling sessions with a good psychologist around your area or one of the psychologists on the lybrate platform.

At any age a skin ailment is definitely a stressful condition and the thought of whether it will be cured will no doubt linger in your mind. But you need to understand that stress is one of the major causes of almost all physical ailments. Since you are already taking medication for the same, you should place your faith in your doctor and starts to work on enhancing your self confidence through working on your strength areas. As Dr. Pererira has suggested, having a good daily routine of exercise, healthy eating, drinking lots of water, relaxing through yoga/ meditation, and socializing - spending happy times with family and friends while help enhance your self confidence, improve your concentration and improve th equality of your life. Nothing is permanent, if you are determined you can always build a bright future for yourself.

I feel that some one is coming behind me to kill me in my dreams daily, Is it some kind of illness?
No, it is not an illness. Your dreams reveal what is in the unconscious mind and in this case it is indicative of some danger to your life. Even if it not danger, this is certainly a manifestation of fear. If you are aware of this fear then talk to a counselor and as you deal with it these dreams may disappear. Dream interpretation is so subjective that it could men that you are very close to completing a difficult task, or that there is impending danger to not doing something important, or that you need to push yourself to complete an important decision or job.

Your son could be suffering from Acute Stress or anxiety problem. Sometimes short term counseling can help. He needs to be assessed for any underlying depressive illness or anxiety disorders as well. It could be because of some underlying other medical problems like thyroid. Consult a Psychiatrist for better outcomes lest his career would be in jeopardy.
