Dear lybrate user anger is the cause of many troubles. Patient should take meditation, yoga, reading spiritual books. You can use homoeopathic medicine if needed- chamomilla30/tds for 2 months. Thanks.

How should I concentrate and study motivated for long hours. (Though if there are personal issues or not)

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Try these ideas out: 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is 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. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

For approx 8 months I am suffering with anxiety disorders. I am trying to help myself with exercises and yoga but I feel panic attacks often. Some times mood swings are also there, all of a sudden feeling low. Recently I have started experiencing tightening of jaw muscle. Although I try to keep myself busy so that I am tired and I get good sleep at night. Recently I have also experienced intolerance for sudden sound and loud sound. I am 27 years old and I am in defence.

Hi lybrate-user, Thanks for posting your query on Lybrate. 1. While Exercises and Yoga do help in Anxiety Disorders when it is mild but when the problems are moderate to severe, it should be done along with medications. 2. There are abnormalities in the levels of Neurochemicals/Neurotransmitters in the brain causing various Anxiety disorders. 3. So, unless the levels of neurotransmitters are brought to normal levels, the Anxiety symptoms will not subside. 4. Tightening of jaw muscles and intolerance to loud sound can happen in Anxiety. 5. Mood swing- needs to be further evaluated. So, I suggest you to consult your Psychiatrist for complete evaluation and treatment Regards.

I am dealing with emotional disorder. I have behavioural issues. Help me with counselling.
You should be honest to address your problems. That's the only way to be happy. Once you take charge of yourself then you will not fear or feel anxious about anything. It's all about accepting your self as you are ! No one is perfect. So stop comparing, stop worrying about past or future unnecessarily. you need to become wise and use your time very judiciously. So have your priorities. then plan your routine. there is nothing to worry as you are doing your best everyday because now you have learnt to take responsibility. All the best.

How to Overcome Your Social Anxiety?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DPM Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
How to Overcome Your Social Anxiety?

Are you suffering from social anxiety phobia and are looking for ways to get over it? Social anxiety refers to the anxiety in anticipating any kind of social situation or after a certain situation. The fear of evaluation accounts for being the primary factor of social anxiety phobia. Here are the various ways by which you can deal with social anxiety phobia:

  1. Self-help Manual: Self-help manuals are a supplement for this therapy. They act as an effective tool, which helps you to work on your own.

  2. Visit a Therapist: In case your social anxiety phobia is hampering things you need to do along with your social activities, and your self-help measures have failed, you need a therapist. Choose a therapist who specializes in anxiety disorders.

  3. Practice Deep Breathing Regularly: Engaging yourself in deep breathing, before a situation which provokes or triggers your social anxiety, is effective. You need to undertake deep breathing for several minutes every day. This will make it a habit for you, so that you do not focus too much on deep breathing during a situation, thereby missing out on the conversation.

  4. Create an Exposure Hierarchy: An exposure hierarchy refers to a list. In this list, you have to write down about all the various types of situations when your social anxiety phobia gets triggered. The list has to be made in a ladder format, and by performing the easiest behaviors first, you should move up the list. For creating exposure hierarchy, you should note down 10 anxiety triggering social situations you experience, and rate them on a scale of 100. You can also join Toastmasters, which is a website where links to several worksheets based on coping with social anxiety are provided.

  5. Create your Goals: When you feel anxious, it is likely for you to eliminate anything positive during that situation. You might be doing great, but yet face distress in everyday activities because of feelings of anxiety. For this purpose, it is recommended for you to create objective behavioral goals.

  6. Maintain a Rational Outlook: Try to get rid of any bleak thoughts, which hamper your performance and trigger your social anxiety phobia. Also stay away from any kind of unrealistic thoughts, which are positive in an irrational way. Before any situation which enhances your anxiety, you should convince yourself about how it is a familiar situation to you, which you have dealt with smoothly in the past.

If your social anxiety phobia is getting in the way of achieving your goals and is disabling you from living the kind of life you seek, it is important for you to consult a therapist and go for regular therapy sessions.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. This seems to be an anxiety symptom and could be part of an anxiety disorder or other psychological condition. Although it can be treated with relative ease, we must first establish the proper diagnosis. We will need more details of your condition like how it started, since when is this happening, any other symptoms etc in order to suggest a more specific remedy. Treatment can be done in many different ways and are generally safe and effective. Take care!
