I m a very stress full person
A little things make me very sad and i" ll be in worry. please Dr. Give me some tips.
STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation.

Hello user. Try these things aerobic activities will make your mood light. Do brisk walk or jog in the morning or evening or both the times. And reduce salt intake as much as possible. Infact go on a zero sodium and low carb diet. It will help you a lot. Zero sodium means no extra salt, every food item got some sodium and which is enough for your daily intake. And drink a lot of water. No junk food. No smoking, no alcohol.

I love someone. But I can't be with her. I know it would be so common for you people out there. But it's not that easy. My story is too complicated. But the moral is I can't be with her. I am going mad day by day. I can't focus on work. I keep playing mobile games, chatting with other girls. But nothing is helping me. Please do something!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Whether your story is complicated or we do not understand, one thing is clear, if you want someone so badly then they must also want you equally badly. You cannot be in a relationship that is one-sided. You must also learn to accept that if something is not possible for good reason, then it is not. I suppose you are looking at a permanent relationship, for which reason it is even more mandatory that there is reciprocal love and desire for each other. My advice to you then, is to get her out of your system and find another more reasonable and loving girl that wants you as much as you want her, and stop wasting your time and life on a losing cause. In this context, meeting with a counselor will certainly help.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job or loss of loved person" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

We first need to understand the temporary nature of things, situations and people. When we lose someone dear to us we need to express our loss, suffering and misery. We do get philosophical and question God, but we will with time accept the inevitable. Only when we learn to accept loss can we move on. But we can also choose to change loss into a strength. Look at the positive side of the story. We were lucky to have experienced being in a relationship with the bereaved one at least for a short time. Better we interacted for a few years than not at all. Also we can hold on to good memories and feel the soul of that person as though they are with us eternally rather than think they have gone away. Loss when they leave but strength when they are with us. Though ofcourse in another form, not physical. Thanks.

I had habit of smoking cigarette from three years, how can I avoid taking cigarette?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, 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 and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 gums and 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.

Hi, I will suggest you ask him to prepare much in advance. Lack of preparation could be a possible reason of anxiety and fear. The more he is thorough with his syllabus, the more confident he will be. Also, ask him to study in small chunks and for small durations; to take up bits of each chapter instead of doing everything altogether. This way he has a lot to retain because of which only some information is stored. He can try to simplify the matter given and can produce it in his own way. Marks shall be awarded for concept and not bookish language. He can also practice doing mock exams, ensure they are timed. He should feel as if he is in an examination hall and do it sincerely without taking much breaks and without any kind of disturbances. Ask him to analyse his thoughts post this mock session. This should help, come back later for more help.

Again from last two week I am feeling the same vibration in my ears and imbalance? I consulted another ent specialist who did septoplast surgery to me on 2010? he did some tests using earphones in my ears and told there is no problem in my ears and I will become perfect in 10 days, he prescribed me with 2 tablets (prothiaden 25mg night time after food and prodex 20mg morning after food) I felt very anxiety and confused and fear like phobia very suddenly when I took prothiaden 25mg for the 2nd day. I called to doctor and he asked me to stop prothiaden as that was side effect? the third day afternoon I felt same and was sweating too? again I called to doctor and he asked me to stop both the tablet and asked me to consult neurologist.

Hello your symptoms match those of panic disorder. Nexito takes atleast 1-2 weeks to show effect. You need to wait till it starts working. In the meanwhile, you can take an anti anxiety drug like clonazepam during a panic attack. Also, psychotherapy done along with medicines shows better results.

Psychotherapy helps a lot in depression. You should strengthen your mind to get out from this situation and also to get rid off medication. Do meditation daily for mental strength. Taking stress will not solve your problem, but will affect your health. Take homeopathic medicine brynoia 30, 4 dose daily and kali phos 6x, 4 pills 4 times daily.

Dear lybrate user, please understand certain things first! you are only 21 hence you need not say/think that you are single for a" very long time" 2. Even if you have achieved full sexual growth, this is your age to concentrate more on your studies and career. 3. There has to be some strong reason why you are having sexual feelings towards your mother. May be your father is absent from your life, may be your mother looked at you as her support and crossed her boundaries or she is looking at you for support and loves you a lot and also thinks that you are still a child and is treating you like that. But she may not have any sexual feelings towards you. Please understand that each relation is enjoyable and is healthy only when certain boundaries are maintained. Understand your relation with your mother and maintain your boundaries. You can masturbate to satisfy your sexual needs, but fantasizing sex with your mother will very harmful, emotionally for both of you. Please understand that if you just keep imagining things like this, one day you might do it actually, in the spurt of that moment and then you will carry huge shame, guilt for the rest of your life. Now, it is advisable for you to keep some other women to take care of your mother. You need to stay away from her. Stop sharing the same bed. Spend more time with people of your age and who have similar interests. Try to find a life partner of your age and enjoy life.
