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 consult me. Take care.

Better to do weekly once of masturabation. Smoking is always not good. Better to stop smoking. Masturbation is a healthy habit. But it is not good repeatedly. Weekly once it is normal status. Masturabtion is not cause for low weight. So do not think too much about it. Take very good food. Take rest. Sleep well. Develop a very good friendly circle. Be share and be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always comfortable. Be think in positive manner. Do not develop negative thinking. Be positive and be friendly. Ok best of luck.

Lybrate-user. I think its not a forgetfulness but its a lack of concentration which is leading to memory problems. Lack of concentration and confidence can b suggestive of depression. So you need a counselling session to improce yoyears confidence and might require antidepressants to make you more confident. Take care!

Causes and Symptoms of Genophobia

M.D.MEDICINE , Diploma in Diabetology

Genophobia or coitophobia is the irrational psychological fear of intercourse. It is a type of a phobia and people suffering from it fill all or most of the criteria of specific phobia according to the ICD (The International Statistical Classification of Diseases). Genophobic people may be terrified of sexual intercourse or all acts involving sex. It is different from erotophobia in the sense erotophobia is the irrational fear of sexuality and not the act in itself.

1. The causes of genophobia may be attributed to different experiences and origins according to different psychological perspectives. According to the psychoanalytic perspective, genophobia may be caused by the rigid or extremely religious upbringing, which affected the development of ego, making the individual fear all acts that are sexual because it causes moral anxiety and a severe clash of the superego (ethical portion of one's personality)and i'd (primitive component of one's personality).

2. According to the learning perspective, genophobia may develop due to an unpleasant sexual experience such as rape or molestation. Rape Trauma Syndrome leads the survivor to relive the trauma several times and develop apprehension. They may begin to fear sex eventually by relating it to the unpleasant experience, eventually leading to genophobia. It may also be caused if the individual observes sexual acts that are traumatizing in nature, in media or otherwise.

3. It may also result from severe performance anxiety, especially for those who lack sexual experience and have abstained from sex for a prolonged period of time. There is also a chance that other phobias, such as the fear of diseases, especially STDs, may lead to a fear of sexual acts. Some people might relate sexual intercourse with acquiring diseases, thus leading to the development of genophobia.

Symptoms of genophobia include the fear of sexual intercourse and all acts within, breathlessness, nausea, dizziness, feeling sick and fear of losing control. All these symptoms take place in the context of sexual acts.

Genophobia is treated like all other phobias. Therapeutic technique such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (a conversation centric therapy that focuses on how thoughts and beliefs can affect one's actions) is widely used in the treatment of genophobia along with medications. The therapeutic technique varies from patient to patient. For instance, the therapeutic technique used for a rape survivor would be completely different from that which is used for an individual with a fear of STDs. With proper treatment, genophobia is curable, eventually allowing the individual to have a particularly healthy sex life.

Ask Free Question
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Almost every yoga posture are meant with concentration. But without concentration those postures are of no use. Yoga don't teach concentration. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Yes, that stress caused by your family issues could be the cause. You should reach out to a counselor, either for yourself alone or for the family, to resolve these issues. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: 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 is 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.

How can I control my anger?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Ask Free Question
Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening ? or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame ? which might only increase tension ? use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes," instead of, "You never do any housework." Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though ? it can hurt feelings and make things worse. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy." You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses ? whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

A good percentage of people who smoke want to quit the habit, few who understand the physical and psychological damage it can do to them and many because they feel that the they are losing control over the habit and its going well beyond the levels at which they want to maintain it and some because it eats into their pocket. They even express the wish to quit which only follows their version of inability to do so and a feeling helplessness. A considerable number of people make plans to quit and even fix up the dates to quit only to find, some excuses to postpone it. Few even take some measures to quit such gradual reduction in the number of cigarettes they use everyday only to see that they lose control very soon. Few even quit complete only to get back in to the habit within a few days at the slightest provocation.
Smoking is more of a habitual behaviour than the physical need for nicotine for whatever the purpose it may serve. The habituation is consistently maintained by the various factors such as the cost involved in each smoke, the ease at which it can be possessed, carried and used, the absence of social stigma associated with it and its lack of impact on the functional capacity of an individual, rather a irrational belief that it helps in improving the alertness and functional ability.
The commencement of the habit can be mostly traced to the mid or late adolescence or early adulthood, usually with a social smoke, either under peer pressure or as crowd behaviour with the intention to be an integral part of the young energetic risk taking community rather than being an odd man out who sticks to his principles. In some cases it is just done which the intention to mimic the machismo appearance and personality of some film actor whom they adore. Tobacco companies working all out to increase their profits by issuing subtle attractive ads and sponsoring events which have mass following where their ads about their products just coerce anyone to give a try has its own role in people taking up the habit.
Later this practice becomes a widely used method for having short breaks from continuing activities or as mechanism for distracting from preoccupations associated with stress, fear, anxiety, depression or even boredom. Associating this habit with regular activities of day to day life such as having a smoke after every coffee or tea, every meal, every snack and even as a positive reinforcement when some immediate goals are achieved, making it an automatic response to such activity is another factor that helps in maintaining is consistency. Availability of a smokers around who would willing offer a cigarette even without you asking for it, and many a times force you to take one, just for the sake of giving them a company and lack of assertiveness on the part of most of the smokers to say a no to such offer is another important factor.
The consistent maintenance of the habit gradually leads to status where it seems as natural as eating and sleeping and cigarettes becomes an essential ingredient of everyday life such as water and air.
How to quit smoking
Step 1: Prepare
Level 1: make the indispensable plans
Most of people who smoke fail to quit because of the false belief that the habit of smoking is well within their control and they can quit smoking whenever they want. The first thing anyone has to do is to get over this belief. Realize that smoking is a very difficult habit to quit and it cannot be done unless and otherwise you are willing to go through a tough initial period of abstinence.
• Plan for complete exit not a partial one or gradual reduction
• List down the merits and demerits of the habit. Analyze the details to confirm whether you should really quit. While analyzing the details, if at any point of time you feel that there are some benefits of continuing the habit, be clear that its going to be vey difficult for you to quit and you really need to take some extra burden on yourself if you really want to quit
• List down all the stimulus triggers the intention of smoking. It may well be anything from having tea, coffee, meals to whenever you feel down, stressed or bored. Sometime it may be a planned one like having a fag every hour or whenever your friend or colleague offers one. Maintaining a journal to record of each time you smoke and the antecedent incident will help in having the complete details of the instigators.
• Highlight the situations in which you have intense craving to smoke
• List down the names of all your friends who smoke and highlight the ones who offer you a cigarette whenever you meet with special reference to people who start discussions only after they light a cigarette
• If you are preparing a journal also list down whether having a smoke had just helped you to distract yourself from and unpleasant feeling which you have been preoccupied with or whether it has provided a relief. If so identify the problem or the feeling and list it down
• Also list down the alternative activities which can provide you the same level of distraction or the methods in which you can really get over the overwhelming negative feelings
• If you have tried being abstinent earlier, list down the negative feelings and any specific physical symptoms you had while you had been maintaining abstinence. Also note down the incident which resulted in your failure to continue the same.
Level 2:prepare yourself
• Get the knowledge about the various withdrawal symptoms that you may experience and the time period it may be present when you quit smoking
• Develop the belief that all the physical and psychological distress you undergo will cease to exist in a few days and you need to go through these short term sufferings for long term befits
• Develop assertiveness altleast to say” NO” to anyone who offers you cigarettes and “NO” to yourself whenever you have an intense craving to smoke
• Get trained in a few relaxations techniques, the most suitable one being the Jacobson’s progressive relaxation technique
• Decide a date and time to quit. Always remember that today is the best day. You can even do the level one preparation after you have decided that you are quitting.
• Discard any cigarettes in your possession, without worrying about wastage of resources because sometimes your intention to quit after exhausting all the available recourses may become a never ending process
• Remove all the products associated with smoking such as ash trays, mouth fresheners, lighters etc in your vicinity that may remind you of your habit
• Take a short break from any professional demand such as working long hours in the night or stressful deadlines which can increase the intensity of craving
• List out a number of activities of your interest and start doing it
• Prepare yourself to counter the de-motivating comments or intentions from people around you or the smoking populations intensions to isolate you for your decision. Have the clarity that they are exhibiting these behaviours just to cover up their own helplessness and failure related to quitting
Level 3: prepare your environment
• Inform everyone around about your plans to quit and once you have quit and ask for their support to maintain it
• Tell your friends and other social contact assertively that they should not offer cigarettes whenever you meet
• Ask your friends and loved ones to remind you of gaol of total abstinence frequently and to restrain you whenever you exhibit any symptoms of relapse
Step 2 sustaining abstinence
• Don’t have cigarettes or tobacco related products or any products which remind you of smoking in your vicinity
• Don’t have any doubts about you decision or your capacity to quit because self doubts are slippery and it may gradually break down your confidence and efforts to quit.
• Remind yourself about the antecedent activities such a having a meal, coffee etc, which trigger your intention to smoke to avoid doing it whenever you involve in the activity
• Find a healthy alternative such as having a fruit or nuts or mouth freshening spices such a cardamom
• If there is any antecedent activity that you can avoid, avoid it
• Keep yourself engaged with activities of interest and entertainment
• Start maintaining a consistent schedule for sleeping. This will help in overcoming any sleep disturbances that may arise after you quit.
• Also develop the practice of consistent schedule for eating and having a healthy balanced diet.
• Start practicing some physical exercises or yoga in the morning to make your body and mind active which will help you to overcome the withdrawal symptoms such as depression, fatigue and constipation
• Practice some relaxation exercises preferably Jacobson’s progressive relaxation to overcome the withdrawal symptoms of restlessness, anxiety , irritability etc. This can also help in improving the concentration. Controlled breathing or pranayma can also be very effective.
• Remind yourself the reasons based on which you decided to quit and the possible benefits from your decision
• Remind yourself that you are not a loner by being a non-smoker, there is a good percentage of people who are non-smokers with whom you can have sociable and friendly relationships.
• Avoid tempting situations such as being in the company of smokers, who me even compel you to smoke
• Challenge the irrational thoughts associated with smoking that arise time and again such as “smoking relaxes you”, “making you function effectively” with rational thoughts that there are safe activities which can help you to achieve the same. Support these rational thought with various benefits you enjoy being a non smoker.
• Avoid places which is associated with your smoking habit
• Be assertive and say an emphatic “NO” to anybody who offer you a smoke, irrespective of who they are and what consequences you may have to face by doing so. Understand that accepting it will harm you more than anything else
• Whenever there is intense craving to smoke try to distract yourself from the thought by involving yourself in any activity that can really be interesting or that can keep you mind occupied. Activities such as listening to music, solving puzzles, reading stories or novels etc can be very helpful
• Overcome your oral carving by taking water or healthy fluids such as fresh fruit juices or snacks frequently
• Overcome your psychomotor craving associated with your fingers by drawing or just scribbling on paper or even squeezing a ball, whenever you have a sense of restlessness in your fingers. Even playing games on mobile can also be useful. But be careful not to get addicted to that habit.
• Avoid stressful situations if possible, but the better way is to learn stress management techniques and use them to overcome your stress and anxiety
• Avoid being awake in the night for long time. Better to avoid even professional demands of staying awake in the night. If you cant avoid it try some other methods such a frequent short walk, having water frequently etc to keep yourself alert and awake.
• Avoid all alcoholic beverages because it may bring down your capacity to control psychological cravings
• Save the money you spend every day for cigarettes on a day to day basis. Use the money to buy yourself or your loved ones a gift periodically
• Provide positive reinforcement to yourself in the form of rewards periodically. But be careful that that your reward is not a smoke.
• Make a list of the situations in which you wanted to smoke and how you overcame your intensions on a day to day basis. Appreciate yourself for doing the same. As days go by you can see that the numbers decrease which by itself will keep you motivated.
• If there are any specific alternative activities which you feel as easy and effective try doing it frequently whenever the intensions arise
• Preferably don’t use any substitutes such as nicotine coated gums, or nicotine replacement therapy using nasal sprays or patches because it may only sustain the nicotine addiction. if you really feel that you need a substitute you may use normal gums, nuts etc
• Get feedback from your loved ones and non-smoking friends on how it has helped them.
• Start advocating the harmful effects of smoking among your friends who smoke and others. This will help in reminding you of the need to quit completely and at the same time help you in having a social control, because after advocating a cause you know that you can never smoke in their presence again at any point of time.
• Have the clarity of thought that now you are a non-smoker and you have a healthy life like every other non-smokers.
• Always remember that you are only one cigarette away from being a smoker. By taking even one puff you have lost the fight to quit and to achieve your goal you need to take extra efforts and self control
• Even if you slip don’t give up, try to learn from your experience about what triggered your slip, evolve methods of handling it effectively and get back with more vigour to fight the habit

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

Frustrationlife is full of frustrations. From the minor irritations of losing something to the major problem of continued failure towards a desired goal. Since many of the things we truly want require a degree of frustration, being able to manage frustration is required in order to allow us to remain happy and positive even in trying circumstances. Understanding frustration frustration is an emotion that occurs in situations where a person is blocked from reaching a desired outcome. In general, whenever we reach one of our goals, we feel pleased and whenever we are prevented from reaching our goals, we may succumb to frustration and feel irritable, annoyed and angry. Typically, the more important the goal, the greater the frustration and resultant anger or loss of confidence. Frustration is not necessarily bad since it can be a useful indicator of the problems in a person's life and, as a result, it can act as a motivator to change. However, when it results in anger, irritability, stress resentment, depression or a spiral downward where we have a feeling of resignation or giving up, frustration can be destructive. What causes frustration? frustration is experienced whenever the results (goals) you are expecting do not seem to fit the effort and action you are applying. Frustration will occur whenever your actions are producing less and fewer results than you think they should. The frustration we experience can be seen as the result of two types of goal blockage, i. E. Internal and external sources of frustration. Internal sources of frustration usually involve the disappointment that get when we cannot have what we want as a result of personal real or imagined deficiencies such as a lack of confidence or fear of social situations. Another type of internal frustration results when a person has competing goals that interfere with one another. The second type of frustration results from external causes that involve conditions outside the person such as physical roadblocks we encounter in life including other people and things that get in the way of our goals. One of the biggest sources of frustration in today's world is the frustration caused by the perception of wasting time. When you're standing in line at a bank, or in traffic, or on the phone, watching your day go by when you have got so much to do, that's one big frustration. External frustration may be unavoidable. We can try to do something about it, like finding a different route if we are stuck in traffic, or choosing a different restaurant if our first choice is closed, but sometimes there is just nothing we can do about it. It is just the way life is. Our goal in dealing with external sources of frustration is to recognize the wisdom of the serenity prayer. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. One can learn that while the situation itself may be upsetting and frustrating, you do not have to be frustrated. Accepting life is one of the secrets of avoiding frustration. Responses to frustration some of the" typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Anger is among the gamut of emotions we exhibit as a reaction to a situation, and it is a'normal' emotion too as long as it is kept under control. Some people have the propensity to explode when pushed to the extreme. They keep swallowing their emotions until they can finally do it no more, and erupt like a volcano. Others dealing with extreme anger are like a ticking time bomb. You'll never know what you unwittingly say or do can trigger an explosion. In either case, anger that cannot be controlled comes with a physical reaction. Your heart beats faster preparing you for both action and reaction. Your breathing quickens. You may clench your fist, tighten your shoulders and go into a defensive position. The problem arises out of the fact that it is almost impossible to feel anger and empathy at the same time. An angry person is seldom sensitive to the wellbeing of his victim, and hence may lash out verbally and sometimes physically. Such things done in the heat of the moment mostly leaves us with regrets. So here are a few ways to deal with extreme anger. 1. Approve it / acknowledge it: the first step in solving a problem is recognizing that you have one. The fundamental problem here is that people believe they are on the right track and refuse to budge from their views. It is essential to realize that this step is not about deciding whether you are right or wrong, but acknowledging the fact that your reaction to the situation can be channelled in a better way. When getting someone to acknowledge their anger problem, be careful as to not use negative words like wrong, false and shouldn't. Instead, influence with positive words like can and should. Instead of saying'you are wrong to react like this' you can say'i understand what you are feeling. Is there a way we can resolve this situation? 2. Understand / recognize the signs: once you know that your problems exist, you can try devising ways that will work for you in dealing with the situation. You can count to 100 to calm yourself or simply decide to not speak until you can calm yourself. Knowing that you may enter into an argument in a situation, you can list down the points that you feel strongly about and discuss each of them one by one. Working your way through a finite list gives a better opportunity to reach closure at the end. 3. Free the mind/find ways to let it go: not all arguments end in closure. A lot of unsaid justifications cloud our mind repeatedly leaving us seething from the inside. Research has shown that the normal or neurological anger response lasts less than two seconds. Beyond that it takes a strong will to stay angry. Once you realize how much your anger is consuming your mind, decide to free your mind with meditation and other calming exercises. Tell yourself that some people and issues simply don't deserve your anger, emotion, reaction or time. If you or someone you know is suffering from anger management issues, consult a doctor today. Learning to deal with frustration it is unrealistic to believe you can rid yourself of frustration forever, but you can learn to do things to minimize your frustrations and to make sure you do not engage in unhealthy responses to frustration. You will need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. Life inevitably has its ups and downs -- its moments of relaxation and times of tension. When you learn to truly accept this reality, you come one step closer to being able to deal with frustration in a healthy way. There are several types of problems that we encounter in everyday living: those which you know can be solved, those which you are not sure if they can be solved or not, those you know are totally out of your control, and those you are so confused about that you do not even know what the problem is. You need to be able to accurately assess your abilities to alter situations that prevent you from solving your problems and reaching your goal. Then you will be able to assess which of the types of problems you have encountered, and you will then be able to develop a realistic plan. Learning to take things in stride will also help you to be more content and happy which, in turn, will help you to more easily overcome anger and frustration. If you are upset, sad, anxious, or depressed you will have less patience and tolerance for everything and everybody. Treatment of frustration frustration and anger are fundamental emotions that everyone experiences from time to time. From a very early age, people learn to express frustration by copying the behaviour they see modelled around them, and by expressing frustration and angry behaviour and seeing what they can get away with. We all suffer from frustration, and being able to effectively deal with frustration is a very important skill to develop. Each person needs to learn how to control frustration, so that it does not control them. The following is a brief overview of types of frustration management programs and resources that have proved helpful in understanding and controlling frustration and anger. I have found several approaches to treatment that have been effective for my clients including: individual and group therapy for anger management. A therapist who can observe and analyse your behaviour from an impartial perspective, can help you with your reality testing. A therapist knows many effective frustration and anger management strategies and will be able to help you develop a personalized set of strategies for changing both your thinking and behaviour. Depending on your needs, your therapist may work with you on breathing or meditation exercises to reduce frustration, safe and appropriate emotional and physical techniques to release frustration, communication, or cognitive restructuring (a method for disputing and changing the way you think). Relaxation and exercise simple relaxation tools such as deep breathing and relaxing imagery can help calm down feelings of frustration and anger. Breathing deeply, from your diaphragm, will help while breathing from your chest won't relax you. While breathing, you can slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as" relax" calm down" or" take it easy. Non-strenuous exercise, like yoga, can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer. Strenuous and vigorous exercise can also help you to work off frustration and angry feelings. Frustration can have a highly damaging impact on our frame of mind. It can turn a positive person into a person who sees nearly everything as a problem. It can slow you down, inhibit your progress, and at times completely immobilize you. We can become so wound up with our frustration that we do not, and cannot, think or act rationally. Our frustration can often exacerbate a situation and create a vicious circle. If we are convinced that our actions are not working, no matter how hard we try, we are much more likely to reduce, rather than increase, our chances of success. Remember, you cannot eliminate frustration. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you frustration and anger. Life is filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. If you feel that your degree of frustration is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counselling to learn how to handle it better.

Negative thinking is a part of depression itself. So is feeling of being wrong in everything. If you have been having this feeling of sadness of mood and depression for a long time then you should not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist and consider treatment in form of medicines and counseling. Depression occurs in almost 8-12 % of people and is a treatable disorder.
