Dear Doctor, How can I increase my focus (concentration) on doing (uninteresting, but important) tasks? Many times I know some task is very important and needs to be done, yet I don? T find enough willpower to do it. And if I force myself to do it, then I can? T properly focus on it. Most of the books tell us to meditate and breathing exercises. I tried as described, but no help. Could you please tell me about how I can solve this (lack of focus.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Mr Rahul....as per your given details you are 27 years old.....you are matured enough to detect what is important for your life or career.....Lack of focus means you are sharing your concern to so many extra things that you cannot put your full effort on a single task when it is needed.....This can obviously ruin your career.....First stop thinking about those things from which you will gain nothing....Secondly set a goal in your life...everyone have ambition in life....set your goal for the next five years and also plan how to achieve it in next 5 years.....Thirdly boost your self-confidence.....Be social, communicate with people other than your age group...talk with them without any hesitation...Share your views with them on any topics....listen to their views with due respect....Last but surely not the least, Always believe in yourself....don't let any type of inferiority complex make you its prey

Good afternoon. mera brother ke alcohol adict ke bare ma question puchana chata hu. Ki unke alchoal adict h.or unke liver or kidney bhi kafi kuch nuksan ho suka h.unko alchoal chudvana chate h.eske bare me sugesation dijiye.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

you may attempt the following and see how it works: I know you have probably tried a de-addiction center but he should not have been released if he was not ready. So in this attempt, he may be taken to another de-addiction center that is stricter and will also have a follow-up treatment and AA meetings for him to compulsorily attend. Whatever I suggest, kindly involve or share it with mom or elder family members to make it effective and suffer the least backlashes, if any. Ideally, your brother should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require mom's or his wife's permission and written consent. After your brother returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! 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. These are all symptoms of 'Hitting Rock Bottom' Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse 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, including you and whoever else is there, 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 you are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you 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. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed. His medical condition may warrant a very strict course of action.

How 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.

Hi some time I feel I can't do anything about my life I feel that is so hard . i think i had depression.
You are not depressed but have despair, disappointment, frustration and hopelessness. It may convert in depression if prolonged. You need psychological counseling and training to learn either to avoid or to control or to tolerate or to cope with your despair, disappointment, frustration and hopelessness. You have to learn stress, anger & despair management as well as to manage the situation smartly without hurting anyone otherwise your social and personal relationships would be damaged and also keep you hopeful and motivated by controlling over your despair.

I have memory related problem for 2 years. I have started mentat tablet from Himalayas. Is it is good for memory.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, can't tell you about himalayas tablets, but can give you surity for homoeopathic medicines which will improve your memory along with diet. Hello, there are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin b: b vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the b vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin b1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin b3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin b9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin b12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin a: the foods highest in vitamin a are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal vitamin a levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear Lybrate user, 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.

4 Ways to Control Your Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Psychiatrist, Delhi
4 Ways to Control Your Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

4 ways to control your obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person has recurring thoughts and feels the urge to perform certain specific tasks at regular intervals.

Living with OCD can very difficult and medications or therapy alone cannot guarantee complete recovery. The patient himself/herself has to take certain steps to win against the disease.

Here are some measures you can take to control the symptoms of OCD to recover faster.

1. Accept the truth

If you cultivate an accepting approach towards the fact that you are suffering from OCD and will experience obsessive thoughts then it will be easier to cope with the situation. You have to convince yourself that the recurring thoughts and compulsions you're having are not real, do not imply anything and will go away soon. This helps you maintain an optimistic approach and accelerate your recovery process.

2. Try to postpone your compulsions

When you have the urge to do certain ritualistic tasks try not to give in to them. Try to suppress the urges by saying to yourself that you will do it later and then involve yourself in normal day to day activities so that the compulsions can't rule you anymore.

3. Divert your attention

When you feel that you are having a recurring thought or compulsion, try to distract yourself by channelizing your thoughts towards some other activity. You will find that as you engage yourself in other activities, the obsessive compulsive thoughts will lose their impact on you and will prove to be less bothering.

4. Tell yourself that ocd is one of the most insignificant things of your life

Reduce the amount of value you impart to the disorder. Try to convince yourself that ocd cannot change your way of living life and you don't need to give in to your recurring thoughts and compulsions every time. Try to believe that you will not let this disorder affect your life in anyway and it's just your brain bringing these thoughts, not you.

'consult'.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I really like your fervent appeal for help. But do you think you have given enough information to really help you? Let me make this appeal: please give me more information to do justice to guiding you over such a serious matter. Face your problems, and take one day at a time. You sound like you could be depressed due to anger. If so, please meet with a psychiatrist immediately. Get up early every morning and do some vigorous exercise. Plan your day with interesting activities. Do not lie down prone or sleep during the day. Meet lots of people. Go to work if you are of that age, or go to school/college regularly. Remember, ?idleness is a devil?s workshop. Always keep these three things in mind: be responsible, be respectful and be functional in whatever you do. Find yourself a confidant with whom you may talk about all personal problems with ease and without restraint. Eat well too ? lots of fiber foods and a good blend of nutritious items too. Have faith in God to know and feel that you are never alone. Pray often. Every problem has a solution but you may not have found one as yet. That is exactly why you need to talk to a professional, immediately. Life is very precious, and every moment you can stretch it, you are respecting a god-given gift. You have only one chance in this life, make the most of it. We often mistakenly think that we cannot talk about our issues for fear of rejection. You may be into a depression because of that flawed thinking. Please try to talk to someone you can trust. You will be surprised how receptive people are and how well they respond to your travails. All of us need a confidant for precisely this reason, so that we can share anything we want without being judged or rejected for it.

I m a smoker but now days am not smoking but I feel some weakness or stamina issue.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not mention your age so I will have to take a guess about these symptoms. The carbon monoxide in tobacco smoke has the effect of damaging the oxygen carrying capacity of your blood and therefore there is a problem of early exhaustion and that you cannot sustain your stamina too. The latter could be due to damage to your lungs as well. Depending on your age and the extent of your tobacco use, the effects could be of more severity. I recommend that you go for a complete medical checkup and assess the damage to your respiratory system and get advice on how you can recoup from this effect. Exercise is a must but the pace and quantity must be determined on medical grounds. It is really a good thing that you have ceased with smoking because the damage is evidently showing and you can now focus on recovering as much as you can.

I had been smoking from 7 -8 month regularly. Although am not a regular chain smoker. But am smoking not less than 12 cigarettes in a day. Help me out please.?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hi, I would suggest you to get your physiological health check up done once. Get your cbc, thyroid function test done. Also get your vit b12 level checked. Sometimes if you're physically not ok then also you will get tired during sex. Indulge in foreplay before intercourse. Keep yourself mentally and emotionally relaxed.
