For good sleep, just try out these simple ways - 1. Stick to a sleep schedule- Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try to limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle. If you don't fall asleep within about 20 minutes, leave your bedroom and do something relaxing. Read or listen to soothing music. Go back to bed when you're tired. Repeat as needed. 2. Pay attention to what you eat and drink - Don't go to bed hungry or stuffed. In particular, avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. Your discomfort might keep you up. Nicotine, caffeine and alcohol deserve caution, too. 3. Create a restful environment - Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before bedtime. Consider using room-darkening shades, earplugs, a fan or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs. Doing calming activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, might promote better sleep. 4. Limit daytime naps - Long daytime naps can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day. 5. Include physical activity in your daily routine - Regular physical activity can promote better sleep 6. Manage worries - Try to resolve your worries or concerns before bedtime. Stress management might help. Start with the basics, such as getting organized, setting priorities and delegating tasks. Meditation also can ease anxiety. Identifying and treating any underlying causes can help you get the better sleep you deserve. If above things doesn't help you, then consult us for homeopathic medicines.

If the doubt and suspicion is unfounded then it is clearly your problem. There is some insecurity in you to make to even think that he is your life. That itself could create a lot of insecurity because you will become too dependent for his approval and control. It is also foolish to completely trust someone even if he promises fidelity. But without harassing him you can keep tabs on his behaviour at a normal level and when 'anything' happens you must discuss it and see how he responds. If you can't trust someone in a relationship, then it will not workout. So have faith but with some moderation too.

If I take more load on the brain (Like doing software development work, Riding bike, Driving car) I am feeling more and more nervous and my body starts to sweat. Please advice if this is due to diabetes (Fasting: 111 mg/dl/ Post Lunch: 192 mg/dl) or Is it due to anxiety or depression. Thanks,

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counsellor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Depression: Can It Lead To Suicide?

Depression is an illness which has a direct impact on the brain. People feel that it’s just feeling down but it is more than that. It is a serious illness caused by changes in brain chemistry. There are other factors also that contribute to the onset of depression, including

  1. Genetics,

  2. Changes in hormone levels,

  3. Stress,

  4. Difficult life circumstances.

Any of the above mentioned factors or combination can precipitate changes in brain chemistry and may lead to depression. Depression is a serious and a very common condition these days which may lead to suicide in extreme cases.

Signs of Depression:

  1. Loss of pleasure in virtually all activities,

  2. Feeling of fatigue or lack of energy,

  3. Difficulty with concentration or memory,

  4. An increase or decrease in appetite, with a corresponding change in weight.

  5. Thoughts of suicide Depression & Suicide.

A major cause of suicide is mental illness, very commonly depression. People feeling suicidal are overwhelmed by painful emotions and see death as the only way out, losing sight of the fact that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary state. Most people who succeed with living feel glad that they resist and are alive today. Suicidal thoughts may be fleeting or more frequent, passive or active. People who are in depress state often start preparing for death, such as giving away possessions or acquiring a gun and these are cause of great concern and should be taken very seriously.

How to judge if suicide is a possibility?

There may be some warning signs, though hard to predict but can be an area of concern:

  1. Being depressed or signs of some mental disorders.

  2. Talking about the loss of interest in living or not to be around.

  3. Increased social isolation.

  4. Mood swings very often.

  5. Buying suicide materials.

  6. Preoccupation with death.

While anyone can become suicidal, there are certain risk factors that make suicide more likely:

  1. Previous suicide attempts.

  2. Recent losses like loss of a relationship or job.

  3. Cultural and religious beliefs supporting suicide.

  4. Access to means of suicide.

How to help a depressed person?

  • Let the person know if you've noticed a change in their behaviour.

  • Spend time talking with the person about their experiences and let them know that you're there to listen without being judgmental.

  • Suggest the person see a doctor or health professional and/or help them to make an appointment.

  • Offer to go with the person to the doctor or health professional.

  • Help the person to find information about depression and anxiety from a website or library.

  • Encourage the person to try to get enough sleep, exercise and eat healthy food.

  • Discourage the person from using alcohol or other drugs to feel better.

  • Encourage friends and family members to invite the person out and keep in touch, but don't pressure the person to participate in activities.

  • Encourage the person to face their fears with support from their doctor/psychologist.

Remember that your loved one's depression isn't anyone's fault. You can't fix the person's depression — but your support and understanding can help.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
