Thanks for your query. You should give up cigarettes completely and use nicotex chewing gum 4 mg 4-5 times daily till you get over the craving for nicotine. Please feel free to ask a private question

Hi lybrate-user! Age doesn't matter the modern world and life style makes you think. It is like survival of the fittest. There is nothing wrong for thinking negatively, bcoz the world is like that, it is not that peaceful like what it was about 15 to 20 years ago, so the approach in facing situations should be different I mean you should face each and every walks of your life more positively. Ya it works "All is Well" to some extent, but you require a more impacting ways to convert your negativity into a more positive one. Of course world wide acceptable and effective way both physically and mentally is the more ancient way of following Yoga and meditation, which would suit you and your family better. Feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. Take care. Do not worry. With regards, Psy. MSV.

I am 22 years old woman. I am suffering from stress. What should I do to overcome from it?

I am 22 years old woman. I am suffering from stress. What should I do to overcome from it?
Stress is a very generic term and does not convey what exactly is your problem. But since we know that stress is a problem of handling emotions let me explain how to go about that. All emotions are good and all feelings need to be vocalized or emoted. If you fail to express your feelings you will go through various reactions and those are collectively called stress. It is so powerful that they cause physical reactions and they are called psychosomatic disease. Your emotions are not to be controlled. They are to be in fact expressed every time and as soon as possible. You will need to control your behavior around the feeling. The more your feelings are expressed the better balance you will be in. If you read a book entitled, Emotional Intelligence? by Daniel Goleman you will understand how expressing feelings actually improve your performance and well being, including your intelligence. There is no exception to expressing feelings. The only exception is when the feeling is so inappropriate. Many times because we want to look good and do not want to offend others, we cover up our emotions. When you do this, the emotion will find a favorite organ and express itself into that organ and lead to its malfunction or total dysfunction. Sometimes you may have to even remove the organ. So emotions can give life or even take it away. The solution: always express your feelings in appropriate ways. You may attend a stress management class with a counselor and learn about emotions in the bargain too. A healthy lifestyle will certainly benefit you always: regular and vigorous exercise, preferably the aerobic kind; good sleep of at least 8 hours every day; and a balanced diet.

How to stop smoking. please help me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I started smoking a few months back and it continued for about 2 months. Now my flatmate is accusing me of giving her PCO (polycystic ovarian syndrome?). I think 2 months is very less time considering I smoked in my room and that too a max of 4-5 cigarettes a day. Is there any truth to what she is saying?

Smoking is always injurious to health. Active smoker it affects more than passive smoker. About your query, I do not think so, pcod is due to bodily hormonal disturbance. It dosent occur suddenly. It is a gradual process in which person get irregular and delayed menses, weight gain etc. Family history of thyroid is also an important factor.

my son is 20 years old and studying B. Tech 3rd year now. He was very soft and cute upto the age of 16 years. However, during college days and till now his behavior is changed a lot. He is always likes to spent with friends, not focusing on studies, more anger, irritated. Due to this, I am disturbed a lot and some times shouts on him. In general, he is very innocent. Because of the friends, he is neglecting studies and careless. Please advice what kind of measures to be taken with my son to bring back to normal.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy

You son is growing up. He is in a phase of his life, where he is evolving as a seperate individual. His hormone levels are high. He is full of youth and energy and hence will have curiosity towards life. He would like to experiment with various things and will be more adventurous than before. He will argue with you do not shout at him, be firm. But do not worry, if you have given him good values till now, he will know how to handle life. Presently, he will prefer company of his friends and he might say that you are backward, orthodox etc etc. Just listen to what he says. Have open communication with him. Do not judge him for anything. Let him enjoy the freedom of being a seperate individual. He will have different views and opinions about everything in life. He is getting angry with you probably because, you are trying to restrict him. It is high time, that he takes responsibility for his own behaviour. Make him understand that if he fails in the exams, his future will get affected. You do not take responsibility for his behaviour and studies. Let him responsibility for his life. At the same time, try to understand his dreams. Guide him properly. Take him to various successful people in life. Let him interact with them. Soon he will realise, how he needs to behave. At the age of 20, present day children are a challenge for all parents. You do not have to bring your son back to normal, because I think he is normal. He is just full of energy, youth, curiosity and plenty of dreams but no life experience. Keep a check on his friend circle, so that he does not get into any kind of addictions. Give him freedom, talk to him about your worries, listen to his concerns, view points, have faith in him, let him know that he is very valuable to you. At the same time, please do not let him manipulate you. Be in control of the situations as a father. All the best.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help you.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
The best defense mechanism for phobia is'not to worry about it. Everyone has fear. Some fear cockroaches, some heights, some hospital etc. Living with those fears or phobias cannot harm you. Your phobia will reduce when you stop ignoring it. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, I am sorry to learn about all the difficulties you are facing. Our mind and bodies have a strong connection- our mind reflects the weakness and lethargy due to some deficiencies in the body. Similarly, the body responds by the change in emotions as a result of these physical changes which are felt by the mind. You have a small baby and you should be able to care for her/him to your fullest potential, as their childhood will not return. Therefore, I hope you are able to overcome your emotional problems, soon. As for physical problems, I would strongly advise you do a full body check-up once and get following tests done- 1. Thyroid profile 2. Vit d3 3. Vit b12 4. Hba1c (glycated sugar) once when you get your test reports consult your physician as to what diet and lifestyle modifications should be made. And also take medication, if any required. Ffollow your doctor's advise, thereafter as deligently as possible. If your body will get fitter you mind will slowly begin to feel better and the quality of your thoughts and moods will improve. You will also feel more open to talking about any life problems if they are bothering you or you're not able to find a solution to. Don't worry, this is just a temporary phase. I hope my advise helps you. Good luck.

Hi lybrate-user, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it. Consult for psychotherapy for anxiety.

Anxiety can definitely increase the blood pressure. It is quiet normally present in many persons. But if you continue to have these symptoms at all situations then they need treatment. Both drugs and psychotherapy are essential for the treatment. Kindly do relaxation exercises and yoga. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Try to plan yourself and schedule your routine activities. Try to go for a morning walk. Take weekly breaks. If you still feel to have symptoms kindly consult a psychiatrist. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Dear friend Sorry to hear about your loss. It is a difficult time. Although grief is a condition everyone must endure, it is important not to let grief dominate your life, and in essence, become your life. Talk about your loss with friends, family or a professional. Indulge in uplifting activities: These activities may be as soteric as studying philosophy or as centering as planting a tree.  Sometimes just walking through a garden can be uplifting.  Meditation, centering Prayer and stress reduction techniques. These can help to control stress and allow one to find a deeper state of awareness or relaxation. Meditation and Prayer may assist in one’s spiritual development by clearing the mind of the day to day stress. Avoid stressful situations and decisions. This is important especially in the initial stages of grief when people are not always exercising their best judgment. Physical exercise. This is an excellent way to “take the edge” off the physical symptoms of grief. Studies show that physical exercise releases endorphins into the body which can alleviate stress and mental anxiety. Do daily morning walk for 20 minutes. Think. Would your loved one be happy to see you in this state? Do what he would have wanted you to do to be happy. Get help for severe or persistent depression. Someone once said: “grief is not a disease but it can become one.” Grief can lead to serious depression. Consider getting professional help if you feel overwhelmed, hopeless, or helpless. Other signs of depression can include sleep impairment (too little or too much), appetite or weight change, low energy, difficulty concentrating, and feeling listless or agitated. Take care of yourself. Remember open up, talk, help is just a call away. Have faith and patience. God bless you!

Agressive and impulsive behaviour can be calmed down to a large extent by not giving encourgemnt to the person who indulges. At the same time, a negative stimuls is given whenever there is such kind of action, and slowly it can come under control.

I don't have effective thinking and attitude power please suggest some options to increase that.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , effective thinking and attitude are to be cultivated and are mainly dependent on sharp brain. The best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. Take care.

Yes sex can be practice during pregnancy. After 5 months of pregnancy one needs to change the position of male partner. Intercourse can be practised in male standing position or sideways position. Male partner should not lie on the tummy or growing fetus.
