Heavy smoking may lead you to these symptoms, even quitting of heavy smoking may also lead to these symptoms. But, if it is, contact a Physician to review whether there is no cardiac problem.

How to reduce stress of study from mind and to be calm and cool before exams and live a tension free and peaceful life?
You need to change your study habits. Relax your mind by deep breathing (15 min) before you study. Start your study with your favourite subjects. Change the subject after 1 hour. Take a break. Go for short walk. Listen instrumental music. Go back to study with refreshed mind. Make a habit to write short notes when you learn and read, revise it. You can display it in your study room. Take enough diet, sleep. Exercise regularly.

Healthy and balanced diet is important in reducing risk of memory loss. Green leafy vegetables reduce the risk of decline of memory with age. Good social relationships and interactions can help reduce risk of memory loss. Brain activity should be maintained. This can be regular reading, writing, learning a new skill, or instrument, doing crossword or puzzles etc. stimulates brain cells and lower risk of memory loss. For further queries get back to me.

Getting tensed is just another manifestation of not being able to handle psychological stress and anxiety arising due to various reasons at your age. Anger is an outward expression of inner anxiety which you tend to express on people you know, care about you. I am very much sure that you do tend to feel regret after doing so. If you have been consistently facing problems of tension and inability to control emotional anger outbursts then it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity for opinion and management. Consult me online for any further queries or assistance in treatment.

Hi lybrate-user, Its you and only you who can change the habit and lifestyle and for this you need to take necessary actions. It is important to get yourself busy in productive things and make a schedule to organize your life better. Apart from that I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult me for therapy.

I have agoraphobia. I have been formerly diagnosed with it. I have been given propranolol, I also suffer absence seizures, am not on medication for that currently either. With my agoraphobia I can barely go on public transport without feeling nauseous. Would it be safe to take one 10 mg propranolol tablet per day or whenever I need to get on transport?

Exposure therapy helps you. You have to keep saying to yourself that you will come out of this problem. If you decide, then it becomes easy for you. In this therapy, you should start going out to places which you fear directly and face the consequence. Or take someone with you and go the places . First day just go near that place, next go a bit forward, third day some more distance. In the same continue till you come out of that fear. You can and you will definitely overcome fear.

Hello Doctors, I am writing this on behalf of my friend. He is addicted to drink alcohol from last couple of years and still continuing frequently. Moreover, he is mentally and physically fit and a blood done too. How it would it affects him in his coming future and what are your suggestions over this?

Hello Doctors,

 I am writing this on behalf of my friend. He is addicted to drink alcohol from last couple of years ...
Being fit is always very good for health. But an alcoholic is an alcoholic and in time many organs will be affected even though he may not see any signs now. Apart from his health he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with his wife and the children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

Study Smarter and Not Harder!

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Study Smarter and Not Harder!

There are few things I hear over and over again from students:

  1. How they are studying for so many in a day
  2. How they do not have even time for anything else in their life due to study pressure
  3. How they are sleep deprived
  4. How much they are stressed
  5. And finally, after all the sacrifices and hard work, their exam performance is not what they expect.

Here are few tips to study smart, improve your grades and yet have a life!
We all know that 2 hours of focused study will be much more productive than 4 hours of distracted study. And, the good news is that concentration is a mental skill that you can develop and improve. There are two ways to improve your concentration:

A. First, work on raising your brain's natural ability to concentrate or in other words, learn to increase your attention span.
B. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier.

Improving your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it is worth it. In my personal experience with students, I have seen noticeable improvement in relatively short time.

A. Ideas for daily concentration boosting habits include

  1. Mindfulness meditation: Many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Mindfulness meditation, where one focuses on one's breathing,  is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. To begin with you may try a guided meditation. One can easily find audios for guided meditation online.
  2. Proper sleep: I am sorry to say this. Pulling all nighters will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be to study as well as answer questions in exams.
  3. Food for your Brain: The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not just keep scoring higher in the game! Try Lumosity and use only free version this will help you restrict your daily play time to 20 minutes and have maximum benefit.
  4. Eat healthier: Your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Instead you could keep some nuts such as walnuts, almond or peanuts as in between munches. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white flour in your diet as much as you could.  
  5. Exercise: It is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing energy and focus. At least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Going for a short jog of 20 minutes will make next 4 to 5 hours of study very efficient.

B. Optimize your mental state & environment

In addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine; also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying.

  1. Create a study space: Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed.
  2. Remove distractions: Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration.
  3. Reduce background noises: If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking.
  4. Use timer: Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time.
  5. Stay motivated: If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing 2-3 hours of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to.
  6. Take breaks: Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind.

Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also.

How an expert can help?
If you want to get individualized expert opinion about how you are studying currently and what ways you can improve; you can always consult the expert. Once he/she knows what your current study methods are, they will be able to give you specific tips to improve upon. Most likely once you incorporate those tips you will be spending less time studying and your grades will improve. That's what is studying smarter and not harder means!!

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Beer addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Relationships should be built by trust, if you are not able to trust your partner and are in a constant insecurity the relationship will not grow. You need to understand from where this insecurity is coming to you, you need to get yourself evaluated so that a proper understanding of your insecurity can be got and adequate advice can be given

I am 52 years man terrible suffering from depression. My problem is from childhood. Last 25 years continuously taking medicine from renowned psychiatrist. But till I several time breakdown and again fight to live. What I myself judged or actual reason found that is I do not have the proper organ which naturally make people to love to theirs father, mother brother, wife child friend etc. Whatever I do that is by force which I can not tell to anybody Since childhood I can not make any friend I can not mix up with anybody. So I used to hide myself by reading book only. When I got service then it was saddest day for my life because now I have to enjoy and I have to stay with others. I was not much educated solution found suicide. Their also I failed. After few years I went for treatment. But discontinued. Last 25 years I am continuously taking medicine. By the period I left the job and kept engaged myself in such job that help me to stay good. From all the way tried to keep myself fit, I know again somehow I will be all right by changing high dose medicine. Again I will be attacked. Suggest me is there any operation in brain that can give me a normal life. I am terrible suffering in depression. I can not die, so suggest some operation not medicine not counselling.
