Dear lybrate user, you need counselling along with your medicines for depression. The counselling process will help you to understand and get rid of the root cause of your depression. Antidepressants may affect your sexual desire, and erection. Once, your negative thoughts reduce, you will need lesser medicines and your body will start functioning normally. Then you will have normal sexual desire and you will not have problems with erection. Consult a counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

How to increase thinking habit while study. How to become introvert. How to read fast.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

To read fast you need to loin a speed reading course. I think you want to be an extrovert and have mistakenly put in introvert?! With regard to developing a thinking habit while studying, you will need to let your imagination go wandering after any thought that is proposed in the material. Never accept any concepts without questioning their veracity. You must try to imagine the proposed idea in a practical situation to see if it makes any sense. Every thought has a myriad of possibilities, if you only think. Sometimes it helps to generalize and explore lateral thinking. The right brain mode is the imaginative and creative brain and if exercised well it will help spread your thinking into a wider mode.

Dear Lybrateuser, -To improve your condition do stop smoking & drinking as it raises BP & also the heart rate -do light exercises to start with as your system may not be able to adapt to the sudden strenuous exercises in the gym & may cause damage, start with a walk only on the treadmill, do warm up before the actual exercise & also do cooling down for 5-10 min -if still no improvement then get your BP checked up at rest as well as during exercise as if you have high bp then vigourous execise will put more strain on the heart & complete system which is damaging for it.

You are only 16 years and you are having stress?! Never mind, what I think is that you may be going through the adolescence problem of a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone,testosterone, like all teenagers go through, both boys and girls. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. These may stress you no end. But this is also the last stage in your teenage life to resolve any childhood issue that lacked any solution. The stress could then be an indicator that something from your past has to be dealt with soon. Ask your parents if they know of any problem in your development years including the prenatal and family history. Equipped with this please visit a counselor with your parents to help you sort out this problem and your stress will disappear as soon as it had come.

The reason why some people like to be alone Because human beings are complex no single reason can explain a certain behavior but instead more than one person can be engaged in the same behavior for completely different reasons. Below are some reasons that could explain why would some people like to be alone, note that more than one reason can be present together in some cases: Lack of social skills: Some people claim that they love to be alone because in fact they don't know what to do in the company of others. That's one of the popular self deception methods the human mind uses. Its better for the person to claim and even believe that he likes to be alone rather than admit that he can't communicate properly with others Lack of social interest: We humans can't live on our own and we need each other to survive. Some people, who were mistreated by their caregivers, didn't manage to develop social interest and as a result started to like to be on their own rather than being with others (see Social interest theory) Protective walls: Some people claim that they like to be alone because people are evil, not trustworthy or bad. Those people are usually the ones who suffered from poor past experiences and who didn't manage to get rid of the bad memories.(see How to get rid of bad memories) Introversion and mental health: Recent researches are starting to put introversion under the category of mental disorders. When you find yourself really happy don't you feel like seeing your friends? On the other hand what do you feel like when you find yourself depressed? Most probably you will want to stay in your room. Some people like to stay alone because they are introverts but introversion itself could be an indication that things are going the wrong way in your life.

How To Prevent Forgetting 1. Intend to remember. Remembering well requires that you want to remember. If you have not made a decision to remember what you are reading/studying, you will forget almost immediately. a. Describe the place where you usually read. (Is it quiet? No TV? No stereo? No talking?) b. Are you motivated to remember what you read/study? For example, can you give a reason for remembering these ideas: ? score of the football game ? directions for "jumping" a dead battery ? when your battery is dead ? directions for getting to a job interview ? textbook material for a test c. Even though you are not interested in the subject you must read about, are you willing to use good reading strategies? ? Do you preview before you read? ? Do you ask questions and then read to answer your questions? 2. Don't overload the memory. Seven items is the most our memories can comfortably handle in one bite, but even seven is too much for most people. Your memory prefers to have only three, four, or five things at one time. Therefore, if you need to remember something that has more than four or five items in a group, you will have to break up the group into smaller bites. 3. Understand before you try to remember. If you don't understand something, your memory will have difficulty storing it. Work on understanding before you try to remember. 4. Select the most interesting points. You can't expect to remember everything you read. Select the most important points by looking for answers to questions you have formed. No one can remember everything. If you try to remember every idea, you will probably not remember much of anything. 5. Organize the material to be learned. Your memory works best when the information is organized. Organize first. Use formal or informal outlines or use mapping, and your memory will work for you. You may understand something when you see it, but if your mental filing system isn't working, you may not be able to find the right information when you need it. 6. Relate the ideas to what you already know. Your memory will store new ideas if you relate them to old ideas. Make an association, create a mental picture, or use mnemonic devices to relate unknown information to information you already know. 7. Use mnemonic devices. These memory devices aid memory, but should be simple, clear, and vivid. You remember the unusual, the funny, or both. a. Rhymes ? This method uses rhyming words to help you remember. Example: "I before E, except after C, or when sounded like A, as in neighbor and weigh." b. Acronyms ? A word made from the first letters of other words aids memory. Examples: "I. R. Soul" from the 6 strategies for better memory I ? Intend to remember R ? Relate the information S ? Select important ideas O ? Organize the details U ? Understand the ideas L ? Limit the amount "PRELIMINARY" to help police officers remember what steps to follow when called to the scene of a crime P ? Proceed to the scene. R ? Render assistance to the injured. E ? Effect the arrest of the perpetrator. L ? Locate and identify witnesses. I ? Interview complainant and witnesses. M ? Maintain the scene and protect evidence. I ? Interrogate suspects. N ? Note all conditions, events, and remarks. A ? Arrange for collection of evidence. R ? Report the incident fully and accurately. Y ? Yield Responsibility to detectives. c. Sentences ? Memory sentences are made where the first letters of words in the sentence are the same as the first letters of words that need to be recalled. Examples: "I Remember So Little Unless Organized."- from the first letter of each of the 6 strategies of memory (listed previously). "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally."- for the order of operations in a math problem (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction). Mnemonic devices are handy when studying for tests, but they should not be used as a substitute for understanding. 8. Test yourself repeatedly. Memorize the material through repeated self-testing. Look at the first item in your notes; then look away and try to repeat it to yourself. After you learn each new item, go back and test yourself on all the previous items. 9. Over learn the material. If you study a subject beyond the time needed for perfect recall, you will increase the length of time that you will remember it. 10. Study before going to bed, but not ON your bed! Study thoroughly the material to be learned. Then go right to sleep without watching a late movie or allowing other activities to interfere with your new learning. Your mind will work to absorb much of the material during the night. In the morning spend a few minutes reviewing to solidly fix the material in your memory 11. 7 Lifestyle-Based Ways to Improve Your Memory a. Eat Right. The foods you eat ? and don't eat ? play a crucial role in your memory. ... b. Exercise. ... c. Stop Multitasking. ... d. Get a Good Night's Sleep. ... e. Play Brain Games. ... f. Master a New Skill. ... g. Try Mnemonic Devices.

Everyone wants to be liked and accepted, but many of us spend too much time and energy worrying about what other people think. You might not even realize you're doing it, but these kinds of mental gymnastics are unhealthy and stressful, making us feel unworthy and removing our attention from the present moment. Here are four steps to help you stop worrying about what other people think, designed to help you maintain healthier and happier relationships with yourself and others. 1. Understand why you care. In order to break the cycle, it's important to understand where the energy is coming from. We've been socialized by a culture that sets norms for our belongingness. From birth, we're taught we should act a certain way, dress a certain way, buy certain products, and adhere to certain ideologies to be liked and accepted. Social media brings the popularity contest to a whole new level, where how many friends we have, and how much they" like" us, is now publicly broadcast and recorded. We are stressed and exhausted trying to manage our real and online personas to make sure that people continue to like and accept us. Many of us have spent our whole lives in this cycle, believing that a certain set of actions would bring us acceptance, only to repeatedly find that this is not the case. This is a form of social conditioning that we must now give ourselves permission to release! 2. Learn this mantra: What Other People Think About Me Is None of My Business! The root of the problem with caring about what people think about you is that you're attaching yourself to an outcome that you have absolutely no control over. That’s right, you have NO CONTROL over what people say, do and think about you! You can have the best intentions, or you can do something ridiculous: It doesn’t matter. You do not control the way people will respond, just as they do not control the way you respond to them. The belief that you have any ownership of or control over people’s opinions about you comes from a place of ego. The reality is that what other people think about you is none of your business! Take a moment and begin to process and accept this perspective. See how the mantra makes you feel, and note the resistance you might feel from your ego. This is normal. (In fact, with all this time spent worrying and managing expectations, this mantra can feel downright strange at first!) 3. Direct the energy to something positive. This new perspective frees up an immense amount of time and energy to live in the NOW and experience your authentic flow. It also breaks the cycle of conditioning that if you could only do X, say Y, and buy Z, people would like and accept you. Deep inside we know that true acceptance comes from within. So instead of caring so much if someone might be talking about you behind your back. Breathe, repeat your mantra, and then direct the excess energy towards something positive, like following your passion and doing what you love! And if you don’t know what you're passionate about, go and find out! Try a creative new activity, such making art, dancing, playing music, building something, or frolicking outside. You'll be amazed at how happy and free you feel when you spend time doing what you love instead of worrying about what other people think! 4. Practice daily self-love and acceptance. When you're living and creating from a place of genuine love and acceptance, you will know that what other people do, say, and think about you really has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. If you don’t like what they have to say about you, you can walk away knowing you are being true to yourself. A regular, daily practice of self-love and self-acceptance is key for releasing attachment to outcomes and maintaining happy, healthy relationships. For many people, this journey begins with meditation, breath-work, yoga, eating healthy, spending time in nature, and creating art. No matter what you do, make sure to do something that reminds you how much you love yourself every day. As you feel more self-love and self-acceptance, you will attract more of it into your space. This is a life-long mission, not an instant transformation that happens overnight, so please be kind and forgive yourself if you fall back into the cycle of worrying about what other people think. If you find yourself feeling attached to their opinions of you, just remember that they, like you, are walking a long journey of internal healing and growth, and that their attitudes are unique and personal to them. And truly none of your business! Hope this suggestion would help you. Regards,

Dear lybrate user...Alcohol causes the damage to liver and daily excessive use of alcohol may cause significant damage. There are grades of liver damage and once the fibrous tissue gets deposited in liver, the damage gets permanent. My suggestion to you will be to completely quit alcohol as soon as possible. Quitting alcohol leads to withdrawal symptoms in body in form of restlessness, hand tremors, body tremolousness and even withdrawal seizures sometimes, thus making quitting it difficult. For this reason you may need the help of initial detoxification with medications. Also you may need anti craving agents to boost your motivation to quit alcohol. For treatment get in touch.

Dear lybrate user, high sugar levels are definately a cause for you to worry about your mother. Stress can be major contributing factor for high sugar levels. It appears to me that your mother is emotional kind of person. She may not sharing her feelings with anyone. But that causes tension. She needs an outlet to express her emotions. I would suggest you to take her to a counsellor who will help her to relieve of her intense feelings. Once her tension is released then she will be able to think rationally and will have lesser stress.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Prefer keeping yourself is a dangerous attitude. Share internal problems with friends and family members. Always think about him it leads to depressive thoughts. If you think you may get anything then think. If not better to leave it. Anyone is not exception before death. Every one is common principle for death. So do not think. Develop busy schedule. Concentrate on your regular work. Change the place, visit new places go to temples, parks, movies and spend most of the busy. Do not be alone it is your enemy. Be friendly and be happy. Better to try some of this aspects. Some days later you will become the normal person. Ok best of luck.

Relationship is between two individuals, who are different in there mental make-up and different demands from a relationship. May be your friend is airy and mercurial in nature who is restless and looking for change all the time. And you demand more stability, are more possessive and want more of his attention with your smaller social circle than him. Neither he will change nor you, can a middle ground be found. You must consider this before entering a formal relationship!

Lack of self confidence .Feeling like a coward and lot of inferiority complex.How to beat all these?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist

The fear complex is doing you in. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a Toast Masters Club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercising, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don?t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals.
