How do I control my nervousness or try not to show it?

Stay active: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm.

What to do if I have read the side affects of anti anxiety pills and I do not want to take them anymore is it bad if just take a sleeping pills instead?

Not a good idea: the medicine works because of the consistent use of it in your bloodstream, thats how it keeps you calm. Everyone freaks out over side effects without giving the medicine a try. you might have none. I have taken medicine post surgery and had little to no side effects. Rethink this. Ask your doctor for any more questions. ...Read more

Does stress effect weight, and if it does what can I do to help myself?

Does stress effect weight, and if it does what can I do to help myself?

Yes it can: Stress can disturb your eating patterns -- either making you eat more than usual, or much less. You would see weight increase or decrease, accordingly. If you think you might have some emotional triggers for eating (many people do) then groups like overeaters anonymous can be really helpful. If extreme weight loss has occurred, you need to see your physician about that asap. Be healthy. ...Read more

How do I stop craving junk food, i can't seem to stop i'm not over weight, just want to be healthier, or is there anything i can take to help?

Behavioral change: Your craving for junk food is a habit that you developed after years of repetitive behavior. Every habit has a trigger, action and reward. There are usually a chain of behaviors that lead up to the urge or craving to eat junk foods. You can break the chain at any link and when you do you can change the outcome. Being mindful of your desire to be healthy will allow you to make better decisions. ...Read more

Family Medicine: How about just starting at your family doctor's office and not at a psychiatrist. Most anxiety can be dealt with naturally with learning new responses to your feelings, practicing breathing, exercising. You do not necessarily have to have pills to treat your problem. Long term treatment of anxiety should include lifestyle and thinking practices. It is good to learn when you are young. ...Read more

How can I increase my concentration during studying? I don't want any pills, i just want to know if there is some type of food or ways to get ambition

Interest: It helps to be interested in what you're studying. This makes concentration a whole lot easier. Check to see whether the courses you're taking move you towards your chosen goal, or not. If they do, it may inspire you and give you "ambition." if not, make adjustments. Also you can make sure to get enough sleep every night, with consistent sleeping and waking times even on weekends. ...Read more

What can I do to about my thinning hair? And can it be reversed? Is there anything i can do about it or am i just doomed to lose it all?

Hopefully not!: Very tough issue! you should be tested for: thyroid dysfunction, anemia/iron deficiency, ( and testosterone levels - if you are a woman) b/c these are treatable causes of hair thinning. Genetics, hormonal issues, nutritional deficiencies can contribute. Biotin, or a 'hair and nails formula' vitamin may help, but the dermatologist is going to be your best source of info & help. ...Read more
