If I occasionally dream of someone I lost a few years ago in an accident, what does it mean?

If I occasionally dream of someone I lost a few years ago in an accident, what does it mean?
It probably means that you are either missing that person or still have strong memories of that person. Our dreams are a combination of our own desires, memories, experiences, imagination etc. Hence all dreams may not really mean anything. But if you occasionally have this dream then you need to understand your more subtle feelings about losing that person. If it was after an accident, then it was a shock for you. It might have caused some trauma for you. Understand and accept your feelings of loss, sadness, pain and grief. Eventually you need to" let it go" life is a flow. We lose some people but for the survivors, the journey continues. When your mind accepts that, the deceased person is not going to come back and you need to move ahead in life, tell yourself that, that person has gone away and you have a life ahead without you. You will learn to let go of that person and move on.

You have to thin positively and develop interpersonal skill in communication and practice will make you perfect. Do meditation and yoga.. You make some good friends and feel free to talk with them and gradually you can mingle with all people. YOu share your difficulty to a couple of friends and ask them to help you and cooperate with you.

4 Supporting Foods That Help When You Plan to QUIT SMOKING!

4 Supporting Foods That Help When You Plan to QUIT SMOKING!
4 Surprising foods that can help you quit smoking


Smoking can be one of the most difficult habits to break, requiring a great amount of willpower and commitment. If you’re a smoker who is looking to quit this habit, making some simple changes in your food habit can ease the quitting process.

So, how does food help in quitting smoking? While certain foods can help to reduce your nicotine dependence, there are other foods out there that have been found to make cigarettes taste terrible. Here are some of the options that you can try out if you’re planning to quit smoking:

1. Milk
Milk can give cigarettes a terrible taste. A study conducted by the Duke University shows that consuming a glass of milk right before smoking can make you think that the cancer stick has a bitter taste.
While it’s still not clear what component in milk brings about such an effect, it’s suspected that the bitter taste is a result of the chemical reaction between the lactose in milk and the tobacco smoke. So, have a glass of milk each time you want to smoke.

2. Nuts
Another helpful food alternative that will keep you from reaching for those cigarettes are nuts. This is because hunger can cause you to have a nicotine craving. You can reduce the urge to smoke by having nuts that are high in soluble fibre as they will slow down your digestion.
Full of nutrients, protein and energy, having them whenever you feel the need to light a cigarette can be highly effective in helping you to quit the bad habit.

3. Fruits rich in Vitamin C
Smoking brings about a fall in your body’s Vitamin C levels, which you can easily replenish by consuming fruits that are high on Vitamin C. You can try citrus fruits like oranges and lemons that are known to have high Vitamin C content, or you can even include pomegranates in your diet.
By including these fruits in your diet you can significantly cut down your need to smoke, as these fruits provide a thrust that is similar when you smoke a cigarette. Besides, they leave a similar bitter aftertaste in your mouth as when you smoke after drinking milk.

4. Vegetables
Besides milk and citrus fruits, certain vegetables are also known to give cigarettes a horrible taste. The vegetables that you need to include in your diet are celery, carrots, zucchini, cucumber and eggplant. They have been proven to be very effective in reducing nicotine craving. Take for instance carrots; they contain a compound known as carotenoids, which not only gives cigarettes a bitter taste, but can also make you less dependent on nicotine.
Another reason as to why you must have these vegetables is because they are a simple way of tricking your brain into thinking that they look like cigarettes (because of their stick shape) and can give you the illusion of an actual cigarette whenever you have them.
So, include these foods in your diet and see yourself saying goodbye to smoking much faster.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. You could forget lessons learned during exam mainly due to performance anxiety. Another reason could be lack of proper understanding and storage of the subject matter. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.

Chronic stress is a side product of our life style these days. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relieve stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white flour in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate user. I guess by what you mean a glorious past 1 year you meant a high achievement and successful year. That's really great but than why you are having difficulty in remembering names and references is the question. You have high achievements and high expectations and thus high amount of stress in life. Stress does not come by high work load but comes by the attachments and associations we make with that work. We work hard so as to make our future bright and after one achievement we again work hard to make another achievement to brighten our future. So we are continually in the process of thinking about the future and not living our present. I hope this is making sense to you and you could relate it to your problem. What I would suggest to you is to work for your expectations and achievements but take a good amount of time to relax. Its simple to consciously adopt some stress management strategies in life so as to live our present to the best. 30 mins of daily aerobic exercise of your interest, fixed time schedule for work, fixed sleep - wake schedule, healthy nutritious diet at fixed schedules, avoid junk food. Spend 30 mins to 1 hour a day of quality time with your family say your wife and children. Quality time means just to be with them with no beeps of gadgets around us and no talks about work. These are some of the tips which may help you. Other than this you may learn mindfulness exercises and inculcate the same in your life for your best performance. There are cognitive enhancers available which helps to increase attention, concentration and memory of a person, but I personally feel that bringing stress management and mindfulness in your life will be sufficient. I hope this will help you. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I am 26 year old female, studying, I have a serious relationship issue with someone, for whom I have fallen, and we had physical intimacy. For me it is serious, but I am not so sure about him, as he always says I am trying. He is still into his last relationship, but he is not in contact with her. I somehow don't know how to act, and it is affecting my professional life a lot, and I am getting addicted to smoke and alcohol. It would be grateful if you give some solution.

U too take it easy, reduce alcohol and smoking and concentrate on your career, and don't spoil your health. Ask him Decisively about his intentions, if he is serious, ask him to marry u.

Hello, There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, seame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

You must examine if something happened 6 years ago to disturb you. You must meet with a counselor and talk about your stress. Lack of sleep is very harmful to your overall health. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

When reports are normal. It may be cause of the psychosomatic disorder. You need psychological counselling. You are very sensitive. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling, cognitive behaviour modification therapy, relaxation therapy required to you. No doctor can clarify to you. No doctor is not also recommended to psychologist. Realise yourself it is must. Now think about this. It is psychosomatic disorder. I need to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling is no side effects. It improves your personality. It helps to overcome from your problems. It modifies your total life style modification. So it is better to consult a good psychologist. Be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be happy all the time. Be sociable. Be feel always comfortable. Do not think too much about small problems. Take good rest and take in time healthy food. Be happy and enjoy the every movement of life. Ok all the best.

Good Afternoon ~ Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can be a very debilitating condition and having had it for so many years and being on medications she may have had some discomfort treated, however there will be gradual progression and the epileptic attack may have been related to her Ms. I believe that I need to review her reports before I can give you any answer with regards to her physical health or suggest medications.

Your complain sounds like a symptom of ocd, obsessive compulsive disorder. Obsessions are automatic, unwanted, intrusive, repetitive and anxiety provoking thoughts. Usually there is a pattern, like in your case the thoughts come before an activity. There are medicines available to reduce these thoughts. You should visit a psychiatrist. There are counseling techniques also that will help. It is a treatable condition. Don't delay the treatment.

Dear, you are having thyroid problems and due to that mood swings are normal. You are getting treatment. Work with your endocrinologist for perfect cure. Regarding attitude. You are the person who can decide whether to be happy, active, shy, moody etc. The circumstances around you will be there always. They trouble you, trigger you, soothe you etc. You can perceive happiness when someone throws stone at you. You can laugh when somebody makes you angry. These are possible provided you understand yourself well. You should learn to be happy and positive. You will need attitude altering therapy. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. Take care.
