Hi there ~ the key to fighting depression is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Spend some time in nature list what you like about yourself read a good book watch a funny movie or tv show take a long, hot bath take care of a few small tasks play with a pet talk to friends or family face-to-face listen to music do something spontaneous

Hi, heart patients can take same homemade foods as other members. Only thing they should do is not to add extra salts at the table, food should be prepared with less oil, should contain more of green vegetables. Drinking sufficient waters if not advised restriction is also good.

Achilles tendonitis or heel pain or plantar fasciitis is a very common condition. During night our feet are in a downward position which causes their stiffness. When we try to straighten them in the morning, they are stretched and hence the pain. You can start by doing feet stretching exercises in the morning before getting down from the bed and do ice packs.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Focus or concentration or attention are same. Focus is the result of dedication towards concrete goals. Therefore first set a concrete goal, start liking the goal and prepare a plan to achieve it. You will have focus. Take care.

In our Indian culture, we are taught to be polite and respectful especially with elders, whatever the cost to us. We must be polite with our guests and other relationships and at the workplace. Women must be never say no their in laws if they want to be happy in their married life. Employees should never say no to their bosses or managers or else they will lose their jobs.

There are 6 main reasons why people hesitate in saying NO:

1. You want to help. You are a kind soul at heart. You don’t want to turn the person away and you want to help where possible, even if it may eat into your time.
2. Afraid of being rude. I was brought up under the notion that saying “No”, especially to people who are more senior, is rude and disrespectful.
3. Wanting to be agreeable. You don’t want to alienate yourself from the group because you’re not in agreement. So you confirm to others’ request.
4. Fear of conflict. You are afraid the person might be angry if you reject him/her. This might lead to an ugly confrontation. Even if there isn’t, there might be friction created which might lead to negative consequences in the future.
5. Fear of lost opportunities. Perhaps you are worried saying no means closing doors. For example, one of my clients’ wife was asked to transfer to another department in her company. Since she liked her team, she didn’t want to shift. However, she didn’t want to say no as she felt it would affect her promotion opportunities in the future.
6. Not burning bridges. Some people take “no” as a sign of rejection. It might lead to bridges being burned and relationships severed.

Well these reasons are not true if you are familiar with the art of saying NO. Remember those people who said no to you and you didn't feel bad about it. The trick lies in when and how to say NO.
At the end of the day, it’s about how you say “no”, rather than the fact you’re saying no, that affects the outcome. After all, you have your own priorities and needs, just like everyone has his/her own needs. Saying no is about respecting and valuing your time and space. Saying no is your prerogative.

Rather than avoid it altogether, it’s all about learning the right way to say no. After I began to say no to others, I realized it’s really not as bad as I thought. The other people were very understanding and didn’t put up any resistance. Really, the fears of saying no are just in our mind. If you are not sure how to do so, here are 7 simple ways for you to say no. Use the method that best meets your needs in the situation.

The art lies in using appropriate body language, tone and proper timing. Coming across as genuine, warm and friendly will help to set the tone of the interaction and you will be the winner.

1. “I can’t commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”
If you are too busy to engage in the request/offer, this will be applicable. This lets the person know your plate is full at the moment, so he/she should hold off on this as well as future requests. If it makes it easier, you can also share what you’re working on so the person can understand better. I use this when I have too many commitments to attend to.

2. “Now’s not a good time as I’m in the middle of something. How about we reconnect at X time?”
It’s common to get sudden requests for help when you are in the middle of something. Sometimes I get phone calls from friends or associates when I’m in a meeting or doing important work. This method is a great way to (temporarily) hold off the request. First, you let the person know it’s not a good time as you are doing something. Secondly, you make known your desire to help by suggesting another time (at your convenience). This way, the person doesn’t feel disappointed or rejected.

3. “I’d love to do this, but …”
I often use this as it’s a gentle way of breaking no to the other party. It’s encouraging as it lets the person know you like the idea (of course, only say this if you do like it) and there’s nothing wrong about it. I often use this line when I get invitations to late night dinners and parties. Their ideas are absolutely great, but I can’t take part due to other reasons such as prior commitments or different needs.

4. “Let me think about it first and I’ll get back to you.”
This is more like a “Maybe” than a straight out “No”. If you are interested but you don’t want to say ‘yes’ just yet, use this. Sometimes I’m pitched a great idea which meets my needs, but I want to hold off on committing as I want some time to think first. There are times when new considerations pop in and I want to be certain of the decision before committing myself. If the person is sincere about the request, he/she will be more than happy to wait a short while. Specify a date / time-range (say, in 1-2 weeks) where the person can expect a reply.

If you’re not interested in what the person has to offer at all, don’t lead him/her on. Use methods #5, #6 or #7 which are definitive.

5. “This doesn’t meet my needs now but I’ll be sure to keep you in mind.”
If someone is pitching a deal/opportunity which isn’t what you are looking for, let him/her know straight-out that it doesn’t meet your needs. Otherwise, the discussion can drag on longer than it should. It helps as the person know it’s nothing wrong about what he/she is offering, but that you are looking for something else. At the same time, by saying you’ll keep him/her in mind, it signals you are open to future opportunities.

6. “I’m not the best person to help on this. Why don’t you try X?”
If you are being asked for help in something which you (i) can’t contribute much to (ii) don’t have resources to help, let it be known they are looking at the wrong person. If possible, refer them to a lead they can follow-up on – whether it’s someone you know, someone who might know someone else, or even a department. I always make it a point to offer an alternate contact so the person doesn’t end up in a dead end. This way you help steer the person in the right place.

7. “No, I can’t.”
The simplest and most direct way to say no. We build up too many fears in our mind to saying no. As I shared earlier in this article, these fears are self-created and they are not true at all. Don’t think so much about saying no and just say it outright. You’ll be surprised when the reception isn’t half as bad as what you imagined it to be.


Overcommitting by trying to cram too many activities into too little time leads to stress. We are much more likely to get sick when we are stressed. And chronic stress can cause serious health risks including depression and heart attacks.

1. OPEN COMMUNICATION: this way you are able to tell people who you really are and what is your capabilities and responsibilities towards yourself. This fosters for honest communication. Other people also see you as a human with virtues and limitations. This builds genuine relationships. Nowadays working women are clear about asking their husbands to pitch in towards house work and husbands are open about wanting a working spouse to support the finances. This creates space for pooling our strengths and working in collaboration with each other.

2. BOUNDARIES: with this practice you will be able to take care of those people who like to push or boss around other people to get their way. Drinking, smoking, drugs are common ways that children and adults with weaker personal boundaries, get drawn into. Learning to say no protects you from potential damage.

3. TIME FOR YOUR GOALS: You make out time for what is important to you and your vision of life. By saying no to late night parties, I am able to eat less junk, get a good sleep and get up early to exercise. Saying no to unrelated office presentations gets you time to spend with family.

Learn to say no to requests that don’t meet your needs, and once you do that you’ll find how easy it actually is. You’ll get more time for yourself, your work and things that are most important to you

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping tomy self all the time. Please help me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping tomy self all the time. Please ...
Losing someone close is a very painful situation when one undergoes immense emotional suffering. Grief is a natural response to loss of someone or something important for you. It’s the emotional suffering one undergoes following the loss. But life has to go on so one should cope with these difficult emotions in a healthy way. Last one year must have been a difficult time for you. Try the following to cope with the loss: •Face your feelings: More you try to avoid or suppress your feelings & loss, the pain will get more intense & prolonged. Unresolved grief can also lead to complications such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and health problems. Accept the loss, acknowledge the pain & face it. When it comes to the mind, do not try to divert your mind, but try to rationalize the thought & explain yourself the reality. •Do not stay alone, but try to stay amongst friends, family members or anyone you are comfortable with & share your feelings. At the same time avoid people who demotivate you, spread negativity or make you feel more uncomfortable. •If you follow a religious tradition, then spend some time in spiritual activities like praying & meditating, as it provides solace. •Express your feelings in a creative way: You can write down your feelings, make an album depicting aspects of the life of your loved one, do something constructive like fulfilling some incomplete task of your close one, and do some good social work in his or her name or something that your close one would have liked. You can plant a tree in his or her name & take care of it. •Usually the grief comes back during events like death anniversaries, birthday, days which were significant to of the one gone. Memories & feelings get awakened at those moments. So mentally prepare yourself before such events & do something constructive on that day. •Maintain a schedule & try to follow it to keep yourself diverted & active. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, eat healthy, sleep adequately. •Avoid substance of abuse. Many a times it is seen people take support of abusive substances like alcohol, drugs, cannabis etc to run away from the pain of loss. It is an unhealthy way of coping with grief & does harm in the long run. Stay away from any substance of abuse. •Pursue your hobbies or those activities that provided you joy & satisfaction. •Take a break & plan a holiday to reduce the stress. •Join a support group consisting of people who had experienced similar loss. Sharing with someone who can understand your feeling really helps. Staying alone & isolated brings in more pain. Now-a-days there are such groups in social media including Facebook where they post messages reading which provides comfort, where one can post their feelings as well. But one should take proper precautions before posting personal information in those memorial pages. You can opt to create a closed group in Facebook than posting in a public page. •If the grief persists, get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & advice you counseling sessions or prescribe you medicines accordingly. •Allow time to heal. Time is the best healer, & with time the pain will lessen up but memories will remain intact. So have patience & continue with life in a positive way.

Yes. Hookah is more injurious than cigarettes. E-hookah maybe less injurious but is not devoid of side-effects. The flavours may not contain tobacco but has traces of it. Also inhaling smoke is certainly bad.

I am not able to concentrate on my mind, mind telling something I am doing something. How to concentrate myself with my mind. Please help me.?

Psychiatrist, Delhi
Mindfulness method for concentration. This is an easy mindfulness exercise, and one that you can do anytime throughout the day. Take a moment right now to try this. Check your watch and note the time. For the next 60 seconds your task is to focus all your attention on your breathing. It? s just for one minute, but it can seem like an eternity. Leave your eyes open and breathe normally. Be ready to catch your mind from wandering off (because it will) and return your attention to your breath whenever it does so. This mindfulness exercise is far more powerful than most people give it credit for. It takes some people many years of practice before they are able to complete a single minute of alert, clear attention. Keep in mind that this mindfulness exercise is not a contest or a personal challenge. You can? t fail at this exercise, you can only experience it. Use this exercise many times throughout the day to restore your mind to the present moment and to restore your mind to clarity and peace. Over time, you can gradually extend the duration of this exercise into longer and longer periods. This exercise is actually the foundation of a correct mindfulness meditation technique. You had to learn this method with therapist. If you want tom learn. Let me know.

I smoke around 5 to 6 cigarettes daily. I want to quit smoking but can not help the urge to smoke. And I do not feel much active feel lazy all times and also lost stamina having short breath. What can I do to improve in all these aspects?

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Its almost like a loss of a loved one when someone whom you love dumps you. It will take sometime for you to accept and come out of the trauma. All you can do is be optimistic. Be with friends and family, people who understand you and you feel comfortable with. Engage yourself in a productive activity of your liking. Pamper yourself. Go on a vacation. Enjoy with friends and cousins. If you still continue to feel sad and her thoughts continue to ruminate, consult a psychiatrist personally for counseling. Tale care.

Focus on losing weight and your negative thoughts will change to positive. Eat minimum fats and carbs, more proteins, simple foods like toned milk and curds. Exercise is good for body and mind. Learn to focus on one thing at a time when negative feelings prop up. Do some activities which require focusing like reading good books, some job to do on computers, some social work like teaching little kids for an hour a day or helping your over worked mother in kitchen. Do try for a month and write back to get more guidance from any of us here.
