If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I am suffering from Schizophrenia for the last 4-5 years. I am taking olimelt 20 mg and sizodon 2 mg for the last 2 years. I am having hallucinations. Should I continue with the same medicines. If not, what medicines should I take?

MD - Psychiatry

The medications are fine, but your hallucinations are not controlled. So you need a revision of prescription, consult your psychiatrist. He will be able to help u. If all 4 years the symptoms have not remitted, with adequate dosage, there are medications for resistant hallucinations. All the best.

I'm sorry to hear about these difficulties of yours. There are various options available to help you expedite the process of recovery, both medicine based, and otherwise. Considering the problems you've mentioned, I suggest that you get in touch with a psychiatrist. The sooner you get help, the lesser the long term damage to your mind and body would be. Three years is a very long time to have trudged along with such significant issues. All the best, and take care.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. Yes. The symptoms points to anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear Madam, thank you for writing in. Please meet a psychiatrist at the earliest. Even if the depression is due to life condition and the life condition does not change, still, treatment of depression can make a world of change. Some of the things that you can do at home are: Start a regular exercise program; eat and sleep at regular times, go out and meet people even if you don't feel like; practice yoga and meditation; spend time on your earlier hobbies even if initially you don't feel like doing so. These suggestions might seem simple, but trust me, they will make a huge difference if you implement them regularly and whole-heartedly. Also get a general health check up done because stress of this kind can often worsen existing or precipitate new medical conditions. Also, pre-existing medical conditions can induce depression in this manner. Take care!

Daily Exercise lowers risk of Alzheimer's

It has been proven that older adults who burn calories in moderate physical activities like jogging swimming gardening and dancing are likely to have lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease

Exercise-associated calorie burn can increase the level of grey matter volume in key brain areas which are responsible for memory enabling the active adults to protect their brain from cognitive decline

Hello, here are some tips to increase your weight, but most important is your confidence. Your looks don't define you, your talent does, so cheer up and go with the confidence for your interviews: ok so let's talk about weight gain, healthy weight gain: eat more often. Frequent meals. Min 6 meals in a day. Increase your protein intake. Have nuts, eggs, soyabean, soya paneer, cheese, milk. Don't drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and can affect your appetite. Eat plenty of calories at each meal. In between you meals you can have nuts or milkshakes. Like banana milkshake, chikku milk shake. Get quality sleep. Heavy stress can also affect your weight gain. Avoid stress. Keep your body hydrated. Drink plenty of water. Try to avoid junk and fried foods. They can affect your metabolism and can cause you to gain fat instead of muscles.

Masturbation is not the reason for stress and anxiety, it is a healthy form of sexual outlet. Consult a psychiatrist and find out the reasons behind stress and anxiety. Anxiety itself can lead to ED and PE.

He loves me but I feel we have differences in thoughts and should not get married. What should we do about it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No two people have or are expected to have the same thoughts. That is the beauty of relationships: the different perspectives add spice to life. It would be extremely boring, if you had the same thoughts. These differences though must help bring strength to your collective minds. If you are trying to control his mind, and failing in your effort, then you don?t need him, you need a robot. You must learn to appreciate the thinking to see and understand the other person?s mind. If you are getting into arguments on this front, stop it by ?agreeing to disagree. No problem then. Male and female brains differ, and that?s what attracts the opposite sexes. If these differences become points of contention, something is wrong in your concept of relationship and your expectations of each other. I can understand that sometimes these can cause conflict but not enough to call off the marriage. Do talk about all this with your partner and explain what is bothering you. You can easily thrash it out and have a conducive approach to these situations. Remember that the cardinal catalyst to any relationship of two or more people is communication ? which is a free, open sharing of your thoughts. It seems that you both have to do some work about understanding of marriage. Visit a marriage counselor, attend premarital counseling and iron out these anomalies soon. Where love is present, everything and anything is welcome expect abuse.

I have a bad habit of chewing tobacco. And now I want to stop eating that. Can you say what steps should I take to stop chewing tobacco?

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. Chewing tobacco addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

I am 43 years old. Regular user of wine. Feeling weakness. Also could not talk with wife.
Alcohol increases desire but decreases the performance. Regular use of wine cause many neuro-chemical imbalances in body including decreasing levels of vitamin b6 - b 12. Besides this, it causes lots of harm to our mind and body. It affects our central nervous system, liver, cardiovascular system, reproduction etc. So you should be strongly determined to leave alcohol. You should consult a local psychiatrist / de addiction center for further counselling / detoxification/ and maintenance of abstinence.

I have an break up with my girlfriend so I'm not able to think anything but her please. Help me. Please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I have an break up with my girlfriend so I'm not able to think anything but her please. Help me. Please.
It looks like you are pining for her after the break up. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. It seems you have discovered that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference was about your past relations and this particular one and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girl friend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is unfortunately a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Since this break up is so serious for you do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly. This is not the end of the world and she is not the only girl in life. You will find another but learn not to repeat the mistakes that led to the breakup. This time choose wisely and behave like a true gentleman.

Dear Lybrate user, smart phone addiction, facebook / whatsup addiction etc are behavior addictions. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.
