Does being alone really give happiness?

Diploma in Acupuncture, Certificate Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy, MBBS
Integrative Medicine,
Hi, that is a very good question and one that doesn't have an easy answer! Throughout history, there have been many people who have actively sought out solitude and silence to end the suffering that they go through. While being immersed in work or study or any routine that fully engages you and gives you a sense of purpose, does give you happiness, true peace comes only with some degree of silence and introspection. To that end a little bit of time spent alone can reap rich dividends! If it is solitude you are seeking, perhaps begin by asking yourself why it is you seek it. Is it because you desire nothing or is it because you need to sort things out in your head. Or is there some other reason? Very often being in the midst of nature, or alone with good music or perhaps with a book can generate a sense of connection with something much bigger than ourselves. That something has been defined and studied by many over the ages, and maybe you want to experience this sense of balance and wholeness for yourself! Feeling connected and in touch with vastness can gift you with insight, clarity and peace. And this is often attained in solitude when you actively seek silence and quiet. One usually meditates alone, and meditation is known to enhance a feeling of peace and happiness not just briefly but over the long term. Our lives are busy and frantic. Perhaps some time spent alone is not such a bad thing after all!

It is pain coming more from your memory. Try counselling. Don't take painkillers. They will cause more trouble. Best think is to forgive the person who hit you and move on. Take up new project, start enjoying life with friends, relatives and neighbors. Delete the episode from your mind.

My 20years old brother in law is getting obsessed about me. He wants me around for all the time. What should I do. Please advice. He also get suicidal thoughts.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If he is latching on to you to this extent, there may be some serious problems. With suicide ideation, the problem is looking more and more sinister. He needs immediate help and you should take him to a counselor and perhaps accompany him because of the security he feels around you. His wife may be able to help understand other nuances that he displays around her to better understand his problem. His parents may also know developmental factors that may have contributed to this condition. He could be depressed too. If he wants to be around you so much he may have some insecurity and is finding solace and safety being near you. The counselor will help identify the primary issue and if that person recommends medication, then please have him cooperate completely. Any delay might be too late.

Is their any difference between counselling and psychotherapy as different Dr. suggest different things for major depression ,gad & schizophrenia.

Is their any difference between counselling and psychotherapy as different Dr. suggest different things for major dep...
Dear lybrate user, counselling typically is for a shorter duration and psychotherapy is for a longer duration. In situational difficulties or simple problems counselling is helpful but for conditions of slightly major intensity like moderate to severe depression, addictions, schizophrenia etc. Psychotherapy is used. Psychotherapist uses one particular therapeutic approach to deal with the person's problems. But in counselling integrative (mixed) therapy approach can be used. Counselling is more about making the person aware about his/her own mind set, values and perceptions and thought processes and it encourages the person to modify his/her perceptions or reactions etc. Psychotherapy is a slow and steady effort which follows specific guidelines of a therapy and ultimately helps the person to come out of acute depression, anxiety, phobia etc. While in counselling, a person need not be under medication. But mostly when under psychotherapy the person is put on some medication by the psychiatrist (not the counsellor), here medication and therapy goes hand in hand.

hello sir, I am neenu doing mba in chennai. I am facing some problem mattanly and physically also. I cannot concentrate in class also give me some suggestions as soon as possible.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must be under some stress or creating stress. Meet with a counselor and do sort that out for good memory. In the meantime do the following: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic 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, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Unfortunately, a sad thing about growing up is watching our parents grow older. It is also inevitable. Also it is common that in order to get a good education or a course of choice, one has to leave his family behind. You also have to understand that this is a part of life. Growing up means taking decisions which are important for your future; although they may not always make you happy. Taking more and more responsibility is a part of maturity. Your parents are grown up; they understand this and can take care of themselves. You have to accept the fact that you will be on your own too, for at least some time. Maybe you are worried because you have never done it before. Just give yourself time to adjust. Every new situation is always difficult till you get used to it. New beginnings can be scary, but they also open new doors to your future. Keep all this in mind, wish you the best.

I am addict to alcohol what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Depending on how much you drink and how long you have been drinking, you may need to go for detoxification. This may be done either in a hospital or in a rehabilitation center itself. It is a way of clearing all the toxins related to the alcohol and this will make it easy for you to remove the physical craving. It will also help to deal with the withdrawal syndrome when abstaining from alcohol consumption. You will need the help of a therapist and a support group called the aa, alcoholics anonymous. They follow a very effective and time-tested 12 step program for the recovery. You will need to avoid all associations to drinking: friends, places, habits, companions, and times, for a short period until you get over the addictive drive. You may take liquid substitutes when the drinking urge is strongest as an oral stimulant. Examples of these would be: soups, buttermilk, juices, pepper water, tender coconut water etc. Start a completely new set of habits, behaviors, social circles, entertainment sources, and learn to be happy without the drink. There is a concept called script work, which is where the success of your recovery can have a lasting and effective impact. You must make some plans around salary time, and how to save money, and clear debts that you might have accumulated when you were drinking. Ideally, you should admit yourself to the rehabilitation center where all these things and more are done and practiced.

You do not have a job, you are depressed, people at home treat you badly, and you are getting married? This is not at all right. You will ruin your wife's life too. First get some help from a counselor and doctor, and resolve your depression and your job: it sounds to me like your depression is quite serious to cause so much of damage. Get well and then get married. In the meantime, do the following: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi there ~ Exercise is something you can do right now to boost your mood. Aim to exercise for 30 minutes or more per day—or break that up into short, 10-minute bursts of activity. A 10-minute walk can improve your mood for two hours. The key to sustaining mood benefits is to exercise regularly. Choose activities you enjoy. You don’t need to train at the gym or run mile after mile. Pick an activity you enjoy, so you’re more likely to stick with it. Find exercises that are continuous and rhythmic. The most benefits for depression come from rhythmic exercise—such as walking, weight training, swimming, martial arts, or dancing—where you move both your arms and legs.

What will happen if someone smokes 3 or 4 cigarettes a day and is addicted to it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Harm due to smoking is directly proportional to the number of cigarettes. So there are more chances of chronic bronchitis, cancer of lung, oral cavity and food pipe,...etc compared with non-smokers, but less chances compared to heavy smokers. Hope this answer helps
