Consult a general physical to rule out any medical cause. If you've already done that then you might want to inculcate the following: - 30 minutes of physical activity - you can also try breathing exercises for a few minutes every day. - create a structured plan for each day. It will help you feel less anxious about your study material. Make sure to not do too much initially.

Dear , quitting smoking is very easy if you have will power. Just stop it and be stubborn never to touch it. Nicotine chewing gum is available in medical stores. You can use them as an alternative to reduce craving. Slowly you can reduce them too. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Don't worry. This could just be a momentary problem. From some sort of learning spill. Do not try to advise against it. Do not try to correct the child's behaviour yourself. Just don't do anything and don't mention the stammering to the child and worry her more about it.

More than the doctors you would be the best person to identify his cause of depression, talk to him, more as a friend than as a parent, let him do activities which he enjoys, any fruit to be born on a tree requires, patience care love and support from the gardener, children may not ask for help, but you have to be there to give him, share your experiences, if required take help of a councellor.

You can test your lung capacity by pft. It's hard to determine the extent of damage to your lungs. Smoking cessation can stop further damage and over few years your lungs will recover slowly. The damage also depends on the exposure in terms of smoke years (number of cigarettes per day x number of years of smoking). You may take help of a psychiatrist if you have difficulty in quitting smoking.

Chemistry, physics and biology are not separate subjects. They interrelated. In fact our body contains chemical components and electricity (you exhale carbon molecules and your heart needs electricity to function. For example, there are many rooms in your house, but wholly it is a house. Likewise, we are made up bio-chemical-physical rooms. Your dislike of these subjects may be due to some negative attitude or experience towards the concerned teachers during your early school life. Or, there may be a gap in knowledge because of your aversion. Better relearn these 2 subjects from 5th std. On wards, that will help you better understand the subjects and increase your interest. A stethoscope is a product of physics, and an injection or tablet is a product of chemistry.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Trichotillomania is a disorder that involves recurrent, irresistible urges to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body, despite trying to stop. Cbt (cognitive behavioral therapy), dbt (dialectical behavior therapy), and act (acceptance and commitment therapy) components are used for best treatment results. I suggest these therapies online. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

All You Need to Know about Depressive Disorders

A depressive disorder is not just a passing phase of the mind; it is a condition which involves your body, mind, and thoughts. It comes in the way of your daily life, thereby preventing you from carrying out your regular routine, even making it harder for you to concentrate or work properly. The exact causes are still not known, but as certain studies suggest, it might be hereditary, due to changes in the neuroendocrine functions, or due to other psychological and social factors.

Some of the depressive disorders are:

- Major depressive disorder
- Persistent depressive disorder
- Other specified or unspecified depressive disorders

Others are classified by their causes:

- Premenstrual Dysphoric disorder
- Another medical condition induced depressive disorder
- Substance/Medication-induced depressive disorder

Depressive disorders can set in at any point in time, but primarily, symptoms are visible in your late teens, 20's or your 30's.

Symptoms

For major depression the symptoms are:

1.Feelings of depression throughout the day
2.Significantly diminished interest in all your activities

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I can help you with the tips and tricks. Take care.

Your grandfather condition is rather serious. Do you know if there was any event, a month ago, that might have triggered this development? That might give us a clue. I wonder why the medical fraternity cannot diagnose the problem either. So it is difficult for me to make any accurate assessment but let me try. You may have to make do certain things in order to keep him functional. It is very important that you try to keep him upright as much as possible, and do things that both body and mind are occupied with. There may be a neurological problem and a physical problem. But I am taking wild guesses from the limited information you have given. If you neglect him and let him stagnate in this condition he can only degenerate. See whatever method you can use to get him to relate to the external world: highly stimulating and provoking material needs to be used. You may provide reading material, television/video entertaining programs etc. in fact anything that distracts and attracts him. Whole body physiotherapy will certainly help him. Find a good acupuncturist there and introduce him to some of that therapy. If he is amenable to swimming, try that too. Seek some spiritual help too from a local believer?s church, whose pastor will visit home and pray over the man. Divine intervention is definitely advised where medicine is unable to neither decipher the ailment nor treat it. I sincerely hope you are amenable to this suggestion.

Dear , memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection.

At your age quite a few youngsters do have problems with concentration due to the adolescent period and some hormonal changes. Even so, it is important to develop some skills and learn how to concentrate, for life. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So catch a good 8 hours of sleep every day. 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 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, 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.
