How do I start my baby on a good habit of not wasting food?

Portion control: I agree with dr. Valdez-small portions. In america, we often eat until we are 'full', while in other cultures one eats until about 70% full. Serve small portions of everything, with 'seconds' only after first servings are consumed. An age appropriate serving could be a single bite. ...Read more

What should I do I don't have time to exercise my examination have been started and I like exercising but I am scared from wasting my time help plzz?

Short exercise break: You sound pretty stressed, and exams can definitely be a stressful time. Exercise actually helps reduce stress and improve concentration, so a brief (15-30 minute) break to work out once or twice a day may be just what you need to "reset" and get back into studying. Good luck with your exams! ...Read more

I spend almost 8 hours a day diagnosing myself. Am i wasting my time?? or should i wait till im 18?

No benefit...: I would suggest that spending 8 hours a day diagnosing yourself isn't a good idea at any age. Have you talked with your doctor or a therapist about how you are feeling? They can help you talk through your fears and create behavioral changes so that you can LIVE your life rather than working to find out if something is wrong with you. ...Read more

I'm at the doctors every other week for one thing or another for which i feel i need medical attention. Worried doctors think i'm wasting their time?

Dont worry: Doctors should not feel that you are wasting their time. We are trained to understand that sometimes symptoms may be difficult to diagnose and sometimes the problem may be related to anxiety or stress and need therapy just the same. A stress or emotional problem is just as real and serious as diabetes. The job of the patient is to not get angry if this is the diagnosis and work with the doctor. ...Read more

Im attracted to a lady who is married,she lives in my neighborhood. im jealous because she is having time of her life husband,whereas Im wasting yrs.

Broaden exposure &: focus. There are many good people in this world. Likely you are focusing on someone close by, convenient & imagining beyond what is necessarily true. The more you look around, extend your focus, the higher the odds of finding someone even more appealing, more a real friend beyond only your imagination. Also be aware, relationships are also complex, require work: understand, build, adapt responses. ...Read more

Same question, : ...same answer. You need to see a doctor, my friend. We cannot diagnose your problem online. At your age, cancer is not terribly common but if you do have it, there are many good oncologists in Tyler (some of whom work for the same group I do). Why don't you chill, see a doc and let him/her take over to see what's the problem? Fear solves nothing. Best to you. ...Read more

Light exposure: There are many, many approaches to jet lag, however the approach that i think has the best evidence basis involves using light and dark exposure to shift your body's internal clock to the new time zone.

Is taking a nap guarantee wil bring benefit or it jus wasting of time coz i wake up guitily.If it brings benefit how should the quality of a nap be?

Away with guilt!: Many people find a power nap (eve if you don't completely fall asleep) of about 15 minutes helpful to re-charge them for the rest of the day. If you sleep for a long period of time you can wake up groggy. Normal guilt is when you go against your value system and are getting feedback. Neurotic guilt is excessive, and hopefully that's not your case. ...Read more

Had discectomy would glaucosamine and chiondroitin be any help or wasting my money?

Not sure: There is already limited evidence of glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate for use in non spinal related pathology like knee arthritis and even less so in the case of spinal pathology. I'll be honest if it does help, it'll likely be minimal to small, but alternatively, it's unlikely to be harmful in any significant way(besides your wallet!). Good luck. ...Read more
