Hello sir have 20 years I have very lazy fully lazy how to increase concentration on study tips to concentrate on study.

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.

Hello doctor. I have a problem that most of the time i am lost in my own world and my heart its really heavy, I feel like crying and I don't feel like interacting with any body. I like being alone and i think because of this only my BP goes low. Is there any thing that i can do to get over from this.

I have not known of anyone having low BP because of feeling alone or feeling like crying. Kindly check that out with a physician. You may be having the symptoms of grief-related depression. Which may be the cause of your loneliness or vice versa, the loneliness may be causing the depression. You need to examine with a counselor what is this grief all about, when did it start, and to do something about it. You may feel that it is embarrassing to talk about it and this can lead to a sense of lonely withdrawal. It seems to also cause your daydreaming state, and this should not be ignored for too long. I always recommend that one should be comfortable being alone, as long as it is not done to avoid people. In this case I suspect it is shying away from others because of your discomfort. If you need to weep, do so with someone. People will appreciate this, and will support you too. Do regular exercises, it is the best holistic medicine. Meet people, attend group meetings, join a club, eat well, and sleep well to slowly get yourself out of this state. When you are with people, you can never get lost in your own world that easily. If this does not work out, meet a counselor and take it from there.

There is no harm in masturabation and is a good sex drive release. You can restart if you feel as stopping this normal diversion of mind could make depression.

When certain negative emotions are suppressed, they get internalised and start affecting our body. I think this is what is happening to your friend and that is why he is having stomach irritation and weakness, he is under stress and have a few suppressed emotions. Encourage him to share and discuss his worries/problems with you or any one else whom he trusts. He needs a healthy outlet for his emotions. By talking to others, his problems may not be resolved, but he will get a different perspective, he will know a few other options to handle his issues and most importantly, he will be relieved of his troblesome thoughts.

First think I would suggest is to go. For an eye check up. See if you have number or if it has increased. Also check for the dryness of the eye. Which could lead to irritation or tiredness at times. Apart from it. Wash your eyes frequently with cold water and rest them. Make sure thst you have enough light in the room when you use your laptop. Take breaks and do palming exercise for your eyes. Along wit this also incorporate raw salad in your diet for both lunch and dinner. If you want to enhance the test youcan use butter or cheese along with some other spices. Eating and sleeping well along with some exercise always helps. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

You must go for counseling as well during your treatment of medicines. There are a lot things that you will learn with talk therapy and along with the medication much progress can be achieved. then if you are episode free for three years you can be weaned off of the medication. In the meantime it will help to do the following too: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don?t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

For more information you can read the book, Managing your Mind and Mood through Food, by Wurtman, J, Judith with Margaret Danbrot. Now we all know that we are what we eat. Various foods affect our moods and our health. Anything in excess will cause us harm and any deprivation too can do damage. Indian foods are very rich in nutrients and are always spiced to 'spice' us up. Vegetarian versus nonvegetarian foods also impact our mood and health. Foods that stimulate tryptophan and serotonin can also perk up your mood and thinking and slow down thinking and depress your mood, respectively. So, in any treatment plan, it is good to incorporate dietary considerations to both provide the necessary impetus and to also aid the medication and its effect.

Dear, from the description, it seems that you have anxiety disorder and it could be social anxiety disorder. You were worried when you gave blood and you carried the whole worry with you for some period instead of forgetting it. Later it manifested as anxiety. Anxiety can be treated with the help of awareness, psychotherapy, life style changes and exercise. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Respected doctors, I am too depressed, it all began with the month of April. Till March I was a normal person. I do things repeatedly, washing hands about a hundred times. Checking calculations in exams about 10 times even if I know that the result is correct. Washing clothes for no reason driven by the fear of contamination. All this has ruined my health, time and studies. Please help me get out of this before it gets transformed in my other ways of life. It disturbs my sleep and my mental peace. Unable to focus on my studies.

What you are discribing are symptoms of obsessive cumplesive disorder. It is caused by a complex interaction of genetics, environment, personality, and stressors. As you have observed the symptoms recently, I would suggest you to co silt a physician at your earliest. In your case it is very much likely thst you would be able to co troll the symptoms and lead a normal. Life again. The two main treatments for ocd are psychotherapy and medications. Often, treatment is most effective with a combination of these. Exposure and response prevention (erp) therapy is one of the most effective treatment. This therapy involves gradually exposing you to your fear and having you learn healthy ways to cope with your anxiety. Exposure therapy takes effort and practice, but you may enjoy a better quality of life once you learn to manage your obsessions and compulsions. Therapy may take place in individual, family or group sessions.

Hi lybrate-user, you are in your growing period. It is common to have relationships and also have heart breaks, confusion etc. Firstly, until and unless you have some evidence there is no point doubting here and getting disturbed. If you have and she accepts it you can mend you relationship and give her another chance if you want. Thirdly, if she does not accept and you have evidence and she behaves cold and not loving, its better to leave the relationship move on. Helplessness is only perceived we always have the power to make us feel good or bad and if relationships is not helping us grow its not worth having. Long distance will create further doubt. You can also leave things as it is, take a break, and leave everything on fate. Till that time study, focus on your career, that is of utmost importance it will help you throughout your life.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, stress disorder can cause serious health problems if it is left untreated. Treatment is always given to the person rather than the stress itself. No one can avoid the stress around them and therefore they will be taught how to live with the stress itself. Understanding the stress and passionately dealing with the stressor is the best process. Life style coaches and psychologists will train you. There are many psychologists you can contact even online. Do consult a psychologist. Take care.
