Smiling through depression?

Mental illnesses don’t care how successful you are and being funny isn’t the same as being happy, for Robin William’s comedy was the wall he built to hide his darkness. The mask he wore to make everybody else’s day. When we see a car with a sticker that says baby on board or disabled passenger, naturally we’re more patient with the driver, we slow down and give them space to drive because we know that there’s a vulnerable person inside. Would we be so considerate if the sign wasn’t there? I can almost definitely say no.


The truth is, We don’t know what someone is going through because people don’t wear signs to illustrate their struggles. You don’t see signs attached to people saying, “Going through a divorce“, or “Lost a child”, or “Feeling depressed“, or “Diagnosed with cancer“. If we could visually see what those around us are going through we would definitely be kinder, so Why do we need the sign? Pain is relative, everyone is going through their own pain, and it’s a pain we know nothing about, a pain often masked by a smile to protect that vulnerable person inside. Whether we know what is going on or not We have to treat everyone as if they’re wearing a sign we can’t see. Mental health issues are invisible illnesses that don’t always look the same on the outside, you can have everything in the world but still be unhappy. It’s not because you’re hard to please or you’re just never satisfied.


It’s because pain, sadness and depression do not discriminate. Share your thoughts / advice below.

How Education Advisor Can Ease Your Pain?

ASK EDUVISOR in Dubai

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

Maya Angelou

An education advisor or academic consultant is a consultant who gives advice to high school and college students on how to plan their studies.
An education advisor also provides guidance on academic matters to students, parents, teachers, school boards and other educational bodies.

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can demonstrate or guide him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
Education advisors are in a unique position to help students with school- and home-life-related issues.This guidance can be in the form of one – on – one sessions, online telephone calls, high school classes on application for a college.

Here are the top five reasons to have an education advisor to foster your academic path.

  1. To confirm your university qualifications
  2. To ensure that you have the right course
  3. To explore major career options
  4. To plan future steps in your education
  5. To make connection between challenging academic work and your future success

Academic consulting’s mission is to support students in their growth and development through the development of meaningful educational plans compatible with their life goals. Most of the students get influenced by parents,relatives,peers,trend and society. They don’t select what is right for them but nod their head in what others decisions.I don’t say that they are wrong but what suits some might not be convenient to your mindset.

As an educator, I can tell you that a professional advisor can show you definitely the right path. You will never be satisfied in life if you don’t seize the right walking path. Do you want to live the rest of your years yearning to know what would have happened if you would taken help of an expert when you had the chance? Major universities and colleges all over the world have their own education advisors and counselors, which proves that self treated illness though might save you some money but has risk factors associated with it.

I am an education advisor registered under Dubai Knowledge Park. I have taught, mentored and advised more than 4000 students in my long two decade academic career.I would be happy to assist and advice you to boost up your academic journey.

How to prepare any exam in very short time?

The video at the end of this article is only to boost up confidence of average students. It has been successful for all my students. Although, remember that there are no short cuts to success, so those who are planning to go beyond 85-90% prepare extensively and thoroughly.

So here it goes for my readers and viewers :

1. Prepare only 60% of syllabus but prepare it perfectly

When it comes to preparing in short time period it is practically not viable to cover 100% syllabus unless you have extraordinary memory power and composed conditions to conceive all the topics. Firstly, open the syllabus and select the topics that would secure you passing grades. Now in second phase select the topics that carry good weightage which would get you atleast first division. If you are targeting for higher grades then you need to have a study plan way before then this stage and cover 100% syllabus.

2.Write your own notes.

Research suggests that human brain remembers more what has been written by hand. Also, one-time writing is equivalent to two times reading. My school teachers always insisted in written practice which laid a very strong foundation for me to be good in each and every subject till today.

3.Prepare early in the morning or late after midnight.

As anything which is read or written in utter silence stays in the brain for longer time.

“Join the 5am club.Your most valuable hours are from 5am to 8am.They have the least interruptions.” Robin Sharma

Do you agree?

4.Make word Mnemonic to remember important points

You may ask, what is this Mnemonic? It is making your own short cut formula by just putting first letter of any word or paragraph and making it easier to learn. For e.g.: In English the Seven Coordinating conjunctions are For, And, But, Or, Yet,So = FANBOYS. Taking just first letters of these conjunctions. Is it not interesting and easy?

5.Draw a mind map

Draw a chart or map of the things you have read and try to recall it. Since mind mapping works like the brain does it allows you to organize and understand information faster and better.A good mind map can save you many hours of study.

6.Take some tests or quizzes-its effective way of learning.

You can sit with your peer and have peer-checking or ask him/her to take a test. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are.

7.Keep appropriate breaks-it keeps your mind fresh

It is advisable to take 5 minutes of break after every 1 hour of study. No video game or television during exam time.

It will wash away your hard work of many hours. Listen to soothing music and have Power nap.

Rock your exam!
