How can I increase my concentration level at the time of study I am not able to start my study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. You have not mentioned your age but I assume you are close to 20 years, in which case there may be hormonal changes going on in your system. You may therefore have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the 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, 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. If it is only starting trouble, then I suggest that you do group study or study with another friend but both need to be really serious.

I can understand what you are going through. We all face such situations in life and feel sad but losing hope and sacrificing our life is not the answer. We have many other things and people in life and also somebody whom you have lost would also not have approved this thought of yours. You need to live with beautiful memories the person has given you and do the things he/she has left behind incomplete and also fulfill your responsibilities in other areas of your life. You can do it and if it seems difficult then connect an expert psychotherapist to open your heart out and for guidance and support. Move on and live life.

Dear u might need to consult a psychiatrist but before that I let u know that what u r terming as ur weaknesses is in fact ur strength....so many people who talk lavishly on fones...or those who are hooked to Facebook..Wats app etc are in fact addicted to them.....and its their weakness ..u r strong in that aspect in that for u Facebook ...computer ..watsapp are not addictions ....u r independent of them and so independent of taking independent decisions....... Not by being influenced by these things... And to take suggestions of family n friends is not dependency.....even in past kings used to have so many mantris....to suggest to them....its good to consult others ...if ur physical illness is causing u to think such way ..then get treated for that....its treatable...otherwise u r absolutely normal.... Just spare few minutes daily to observe ur breath in total silence ...it'll calm ur mind

Dear, according to your situation, you should not try to mend up the issue. Because later, after marriage, the problem could escalate. The best option is to forget the episode. When you decide to forget the episode, the psychological trauma will end within some time. 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.

You must be very careful because your stress will be felt by the unborn child biochemically. You are in fact responsible for the health of two of you: yourself and your child. You must be kept in the best of emotional and psychological health apart from the physical fitness. If you can take your husband for counseling to your gynecologist she will explain all this to him. Even if he does not listen to her then talk to his parents and have them intervene. You yourself can also go for counseling to a clinical counselor and that person will help you handle your emotions especially the feelings of anger. You must be emotionally well balanced and always in good composure. Please do not neglect this state of yours under any circumstances. Somebody out there is in a position to help you by talking to your husband.

It is not clear why you were given these medications in the first place. Yes, they can cause some sedation/ drowsiness and lack of concentration. Stop them now.

You get into a panic mode I think with approaching exams. There is a lot of fear and very low confidence. To immediately calm down you can do something very effectively: block your lips tightly and breathe to puff up your cheeks with air so that the back pressure will press the vagus nerve at he back of the throat. This nerve connects the heart and the brain directly and will immediately calm you down in a few breaths. Here are some things you can also do to get back your concentration and memory: 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.

Presently everything is normal I feel scared .I know that as time goes on everything will back to normal but whenever I discuss this with my boyfriend either that time he is scared or angry or emotional or me how to control myself how to overcome it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You have a nervous disposition based on extreme fear. This may have originated sometime during childhood but it probably got activated during adolescence, looking for a resolution. Since it was not handled or resolved, it will continue to trouble you for a long time. You seem to get close to panic attacks, especially if there is a social situation and expectation. Talk to your parents and ask them, if they remember any incident or events in childhood that may have been the cause for your nervousness. Then take them and visit a psychiatrist and describe all the symptoms and your life history. S/he may want to know the family history up to three generations to further investigate the genetic contribution too. Please follow the prescription strictly. Meanwhile do get counseling along with the medication. You must eat healthy food, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Do a personality development course, and attend a Toastmasters club near you to develop your public speaking skills. Check with your doctor for any vitamin deficiency. Your emotions are not to be controlled. They are to be in fact expressed every time and as soon as possible. You will need to control your behavior around the feeling. The more your feelings are expressed the better balance you will be in. If you read a book entitled, Emotional Intelligence’ by Daniel Goleman you will understand how expressing feelings actually improve your performance and well being, including your intelligence. There is no exception to expressing feelings. The only exception is when the feeling is so inappropriate. Many times because we want to look good and do not want to offend others, we cover up our emotions. When you do this, the emotion will find a favorite organ and express itself into that organ and lead to its malfunction or total dysfunction. Sometimes you may have to even remove the organ. So emotions can give life or even take it. The solution: always express your feelings in appropriate ways.

Dear, I am sure many of you like youngsters are suffering from such incomplete thoughts. Your development period or age is called young adulthood. During this period many such conflict arise. You will feel your life's worth when you settle your disputes with these conflicts. First thing I would like to suggest you is to be passionate with your job. You should not worry about income now. Be passionate with your job, learn, improve your knowledge and experience and be skilled. Future will be yours.

Health tip to treat Depression without drugs :

Vitamin D:
Have your physician check your vitamin D level and supplement at least 2000IU of D3 or 15-20 minutes of sunlight daily. Optimal serum levels of 25(OH) Vitamin D should be 50-80 ng/ml.

Fish Oil:
Supplement omega-3 fatty acids with fish oil or eat wild salmon at least twice weekly. The brain is made up of fats and health ratios of omega 3: omega 6 fatty acids are absolutely essential to happy mood and healthy brain function.

Food Allergies:
Chronic inflammation from food sensitivities may play a role in causing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Keeping inflammation at bay is critical if you want great sleep and a happy mood! Gluten and other common foods may be causing hidden inflammation. I suggest trying the elimination of gluten, dairy and sugar for a minimum of 30 days to see if this plays a role in your mood.

Probiotics:
Unbalanced gut microbes can contribute to depression, too.

5HTP:
Aid your body's natural production of serotonin. A few essential ingredients for production of this "happy neurotransmitter" are 5HTP 100-150mg, vitamin B6 10-25mg, and Magnesium Citramate 250-500mg at bedtime.

Methyl-folate and B12:
Support methylation. Some patients respond well to sublingual methylcobalamin 2500-5000mcg and oral methyl-folate 1-5mg daily. Be sure to avoid processed cereals and breads which contain synthetic folic acid and may make mood worse.
