I have some fear to go foreign countries and unknown places. How can I avoid it and what is the remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is a combination of the fear of change and the fear of the unknown. Do you know that this is normal and that a lot of people experience this? now because of this there is what is called resistance to change: some people will not venture to go abroad and to unknown places. Now that means it is crippling them. If that is how intense your problem is, then you need to work with a counselor. Often the fear is an exaggeration and there may be some contaminated thoughts that play tricks with your mind to stop you from going out. If you externalized these fears, the other person will give you assuring feedback based on facts and that will help you respond differently. You are missing fabulous trips, and visits to countries and places that offer so much excitement. One trip will prove your theory wrong, and another may reduce it even further. Gradually, the fear will dissipate based on your experience and not on your fantasy.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. It could also mean that some issue from early childhood may be surfacing looking for a resolution. This might after all be a fortunate turn of events but not necessarily easy. Please meet with a counselor along with your parents and let the counselor help you decide what of the earlier problems may be contributing to this condition that you are experiencing.If you cooperate well, you could resolve this problem effectively and go on with your life. If not you may be looking at something that might present serious difficulties later on, perhaps even now. Please do not neglect this for long. The lack of remembering is called discounting, and the lack of sleep patterns is also disturbing by itself.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Parvon spas contains dextropropoxyphene, an opioid derivative. Given that you are taking 10-15 tablets/day, you have developed a dependence on it. You are suffering from the side effects of withdrawal on cessation. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction and they will help you with your problem.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Anxiety can definitely increase the blood pressure. It is quiet normally present in many persons. But if you continue to have these symptoms at all situations then they need treatment. Both drugs and psychotherapy are essential for the treatment. Kindly do relaxation exercises and yoga. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Try to plan yourself and schedule your routine activities. Try to go for a morning walk. Take weekly breaks. If you still feel to have symptoms kindly consult a psychiatrist. Be relaxed stay healthy.

I'm suffering from dyslexia. All the words are jumbled up. Can not write or read properly, tried lot of counselors but no improvements till now. Kindly help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There may be some organicity to investigate too. However, if you have tried flashcards to improve your visual and auditory recall, then you can continue to repeat it often until noticeable change occurs. If you have not tried that, then please get those cards to help your dyslexia. You must also employ the kinesthetic, tactile, auditory, and visual modes of learning and practice daily. The tactile gives you a 'feel' of the letters and words, and the kinesthetic will give you movement symbols of letters and words to help you store permanent memories associated with words and the phonetics associated with them. It will also be good to seek counseling for the emotions that have built up over the years and take care of them too.

Hi. I am 22. Sometimes I get very anxious about things and keep thinking constantly. And normally also there is always something going on in my mind. I constantly think about something or the other. Is this normal? Can this be referred to as 'Stress' And can this increase the chances of a heart attack?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Feeling anxious about certain things, especially facts, is quite normal. It is usually the severity of anxiety and its management which decides whether it is a disorder or not. If you feel anxious every now and then, or to an extent that it becomes very distressing for you, or you feel unable to avoid thinking of issues you do not want to, you might need an assessment for anxiety disorder. Consult a psychiatrist for assessment and counselig.
