Iam 17 years old and I have an concentration problem in studies? What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are at an age when the male sex hormone, testosterone, has a spurt in the production that can cause a lot of disturbances in your condition. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemicals: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

I am very depressed. How should I be happy?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , nobody can provide happiness in a serving plate to you. You should be able to see happiness around you. Happiness is your own perception. For me even seeing a butterfly provides happiness. For some watching children play, cooking, playing, movies, hobbies etc provides happiness. So perception towards happiness differs person to person. You should cultivate an attitude to be happy always. Take care.

I am 39 years old patient of schizoaffective bipolar disorder on medication for last 15 years. And now I have reduced renal activity like urinating only once during daytime. I have sideeffects of bipolardisorder medication like laziness throughout the day, excessive salivation, weightgain and lowmood. I belong to a military family with severe socio-economic issues. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have been pumping your system with medication for so many years that that low level of urination is not at all healthy. Please increase the consumption of water to at least 2 liters every day. This will flush out all the toxins from synthetic medicines and cleanse your system regularly. Whether you like or not and even if it seems impossible, you must go for vigorous exercise every day. It is your life and it is up to you to put in all this effort. I do not know what kind of support you have at home but a lot will depend on your motivation. I know that that will be very low but you cannot be passive and expect any results. There are some neurological exercises that will help too. Now this is my biggest concern: have you been in therapy along with the medication? I am sure not. Get into counseling as quickly as you can, whatever your economic condition. You must seek this type of help for any improvement. It will also support the effects of medication. You must exercise vigorously, sleep only during the night, and eat a healthy diet of fiber like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. At all times you must be responsible, be respectful and be functional. These three are cardinal rules to adhere to that will make some effective changes in your life.

The Surprising Role of Nutrition in Mental Health

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
The Surprising Role of Nutrition in Mental Health

The human body can be compared to a very sophisticated engine that gets its power supply from the food that is eaten. Various organs require fuel for different activities be it walking, standing, stretching or even just regular maintenance where cells are constantly replaced.

The brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body. While it may not do a stretching or a jogging, it constantly needs power supply to function effectively. And as is very obvious, the body reflects the eating patterns. It is not likely that a person eating a very healthy diet would end up obese; nor does a person who is athletic eat a lot of unrefined and processed foods.

The power supply also defines how effectively the organs function, especially in the brain. Good nutrition helps good functioning of the brain. Recent studies have shown that a healthy diet can help avoid mental disorders like depression, schizophrenia problem, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), etc. This field of study is called the nutritional psychiatry.

Listed below are some food substances and how they affect brain functioning:

  1. Carbohydrates: These induce the production of insulin, which causes release of sugar into the body. Increased amount of sugar in the body produces better activity and mood. Tryptophan, a significant neurotransmitter is also released and further enhances mood and well-being. Eating fruits and whole grains, which contain a good amount of carbohydrates is believed to have beneficial effects on the brain, albeit slower in onset.
  2. Proteins:  Foods such as fish, eggs, dairy, greens, peas, legumes are rich in protein and contain amino acids, which are the essential ingredients of the various neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Lack of amino acids like tyrosine can impair production of serotonin, leading to decreased feeling of well-being.
  3. Fats: The gray matter of the brain contains about 50% polyunsaturated fats, and various essential fatty acids are very essential for optimal brain functioning. Decreased levels of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are shown to cause depression. Decreased levels of Omega-3 also leads to dyslexia and autism.
  4. Minerals: Various minerals are very essential for proper functioning of the brain, though they are required in very minute quantities. Calcium, chromium, iodine, iron, lithium, selenium, and zinc are some of the minerals identified as important for brain function.
  5. Vitamins:
  • B-complex: Vitamin B2 and B6 have been proven to enhance mood and improve cognitive performance.
  • Vitamin B12: In addition to delaying the onset of dementia, it also improves cerebral functioning.
  • Folate: Reduced levels lead to depression and also limit the functioning of antidepressants.

As is evident, nutrition plays a very important role and a little care can help improve brain functioning to a large extent. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized dietitian and nutritionist and ask a free question.

I am 58 years old. My problem is in my mind all Negative things are coming and the same is happening in my life. Very small things i will get Tension immediately it is rotating from my mind and no sleep at night also. Please suggest me Dr. Any remedy for this ?Thanks.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Meet with a counselor who will guide you about seeking psychiatric intervention, if the person seems it fit. You do not share what these negative thoughts are all about. If your children are all settled and you are alone at home, this could be cause enough for you to feel negative and tense. There may be other matters concerning the family that could also disturb you and as long as you do not sort them out, you could feel negative. Check out your emotions to see what your feelings are: are you too sad, too scared or too angry. Find out the reason for the feeling and resolve that. There will definitely be one of these emotions affecting you. In the meantime please exercise, sleep well, and eat healthily. Do something constructive in life. Become a member of a social work organization. Join clubs or start one. Do a lot of reading of positive books. Go for spiritual workshops, conferences, courses, discourses, and meet with spiritual heads. Your counselor will be of tremendous help to structure your life and day.

Start counting the achievements in life and feel happy about it. You have made a worthwhile contribution and now is the time to sit back and relax. If possible, try to reach out to those who are less better off than you. Try to give them what they need most- maybe just a few caring words---see the smile on their face brought on by your words,--you will feel elated!

I am not too clear about some aspects of your question. First of all, this is not a compatible marriage due to the age difference and that this'kid' is still a minor and this whole matter is illegal. Just because no one else will marry you it does not mean that you should sleep with anyone who is there. It is also not true that no one will marry you: there are plenty of people around who will marry you. It is pure superstition and irrational conclusions. If you are pregnant, you can have the child and even if it is out-of-wedlock, and even after that you can get married to someone else but not to this boy. He is already setting terms and conditions without even being matured. At any cost, you must get out of this arrangement, whatever people say and think. This is illegal and grossly inappropriate. At least you should be sensible about all this although already you have not acted sensibly while allowing sexual contact.

My friend (a paediatrician) a self made girl who is what she she is on her own (Not a very happy childhood and not emotionally att with family) was emotionally involved with her boyfriend, He was very caring supportive and would have been an ideal life partner. However she left him as he did not improve on his excessive drinking habits, while he moved on in life but he too is unhappy in his marriage. My friend is not able to forget him, and is mentally disturbed. She can not get back to him as he has not given up on his drinks. So crux is she is not able to get over him, nor is she able to accept him back into her life due to his drinking addictions. Now its even affecting her present as she is not able to connect emotionally and mentally with any other guy... And so is not able to go ahead with her marriage proposals. She sees him in everyone she tries to get close with and compares him and rejects him if any of his quality is not there. She fears that even if she marries she may start comparing her spouse in all aspects, and may affect her married life. She is totally left feeling lonely, frustrated and mentally disturbed all the time. She wants to erase him. She is ready for psychiatric /medical help only if it can get her to forget him, reboot her and bring the zing back in her life.

See, its obvious that people take time to move on. As you said she is self made and independant she has made her choice of not being with that guy who does not even love her enough to leave drinking for her. So if someone does not care about her staying with him or not what is that one thing which is not letting her get him out of her mind? She has to get over him to start life afresh and its her decision. No body would like to stay with a alchoholic so instead of comparing other things she should look for the positives in the prospects she is meeting. How long has it been since they broke up? Tell her to take psychotherapy from psychologist and if depression is diagnosed she might as well take medication. You can consult me for same. All the v best.

Dear lybrate-user, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Respected Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, and I suspect that I may be suffering from a bipolar disorder or depression. Since the last two months I have been unable to concentrate on anything that I used to like. I have grown very impatient and irritable. Though I have had a bad temper since childhood , I am experiencing anger that I had never experienced before, throwing stuff, punching the wall and having feelings of hopelessness, crying suddenly, self guilt and feelings of isolating myself from my friends and family. I never talk to someone about my condition as I do not feel I can rely on someone and I think people might mistake my condition to be an imaginary ailment. I can give you more information if you want. Please help me , I feel really alone and hopeless right now.

You cannot diagnose bipolar on your own. Please visit a doctor and a counselor. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.
