wat kinda excercise should I do in mindfulness @akando?
Anmol
well, u can start by looking up what it means. From then on, i would gladly assume you will not be needing another opinion on the matter. Good day to you.
Akando
Relax, short meditation, and light exercise... I suggest walking especially evenings. If you're having difficulty after a period of time seek our your Medicare Practitioner. If you do the above you will settle your mind. Remember your body is telling you to Chill. Also if you have concerns begin to

set a goal and set some shorter goals to keep you on track. find activity that occupy or divert your mind. try to indulge more in them. It's a slow process
Manzar

I have fallen in love, but I don't get her and she doesn't love me. Now how can I forget her totally, because her memories everyday stressed me.
Torpic Reply
it takes a while to move on. it is normal you feel that way.
Nitzeli
try to keep your self busy... by doing many activities in a day.. then ull nt have much time to think abt tht... n slowly ull forget
sushritha
to think abt tht*
sushritha
I believe you should search the root of your despair the how did it happen and and why within yourself. Exactly what did you do or didn't and move on from that point. I called it ways of learning and Loving self more it will only help
Bill
try not to escape from the situation,deleting her memories will reduce ua power to accept the situation, take ua time to overcome der is no hurry, analyse well, understand that many love u but u don't love all of them, same is ua girl's case u love her but it's not necessary that she should love you
Anmol
its normal to fall inlove but we can't force them to feel the same way. just try to shift your mind into some other good activities and hobbies. it well help a lot and just try to appreciate those people around you who truthfully love and care for you.

if she conquered your heart, then only another person will get u thru. if she did so to ur mind, then my friend, you'll forget her, gradually, but never wholly.

breathe
Intisar
did you tell her abt ur love?
Soundramanikandan
Then you need to let it go. it's a bitter pill to swallow, I can relate completely. but letting go of her is the only thing that will help you! stay strong my friend! remember that the night is darkest before dawn and that with hardship comes ease!
Hassunullah
Try to analyze y she avoided you. then work on the problem.
Soundramanikandan
Set life goals. Upgrade yourself everyday. Learn how you can be better than yesterday. When you become a better version of yourself everything will be different. Do it because of you, not because of her. After that you will have a clear vision, then you will know what to do. The key is inside you.

pavan
Think about her detramental quialities that annoyed you and this way you will stop being in love with her.

Make urself busy as much as u can.
mahliqa
it is going to take time and yes try to be busy
Manzar
When you try to forget something or someone, a part of your brain that deals wth memory is working even to make it stronger... dont try to forget.. its just there being marked on the neurons. You have the choice to either focus on other things instead of remembering someone who doesnt love you...

if the spinal cord is damaged will the brain still function properly
Olaniyi Reply
I believe it can cause some inflammation (which could cause some damage) but that would just result in lost nerves

how will the nerve impulses from the rest of the body be relayed to the brain?

Try to keep patience, this time will pass. And always do something that makes you happy. Have fun with your family and friends. Love this life, because we have got it one.

I can't even put in words how incredibly sorry I feel hearing those words. Since I had depression for a long time(still sometimes do) and also thought about committing suicide and to this day are still struggling with anxiety I might know how you feel. Is there anything I can do to help you?

how to get a rid of addiction
deepak Reply
tell urself theres no such thing! talk your self into believing there is no such thing as addiction! spend time with yourself! think by yourself. trust yourself, believe in yourself but most importantly love yourself! because when u love yourself you wont let yourself go!
Whit
Well, getting help is one big step. Try to wean yourself off your addiction. I have a ski. disorder that makes me addicted to picking my skin, so to replace it I played with putty to keep my hands distracted. It's a healthy combination of self help and professional help
bill
skin*
bill
it depends on what kind of addiction it is, how long have you been consuming it, how strong is your will power and how stable you are as a person:)) it is good that you realized that you have an addiction, i think the next step is admitting yourself to a rehab clinic
Kristina
in addition--- just shut yourself from that addiction. do what you have to do in order not to indulge such things (avoid or even repel your access to "it") and keep CALM.. breath in breath out (he he) and tell yourself good job!!
Princeed
get rid...whatever it is.... you decide...coz you have the power not to....
