Dear lybrate-user. Lack of concentration or attention is mainly due to lack of interest, dedication and creativity. Search google for" effective learning methods" and adopt some of them. Consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Only you can help him control his angerness.I am giving you below given tips and just discuss these with him.Surely he will benefit 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

Can you please suggest medicines what should be taken if the person has a habit of smoking cigarettes and taking tobacco.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
STOP SMOKING 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.

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. From the given symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from stress disorder. You should consult a psychologist. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

If an overweight person's weight is reduced because of chronic anxiety or stress or confusion without doing exercise, will the fat in his body be reduced too? Pls answer this question,

Hye. Thankyou for the query. The weight you lost is not healthy weight. You have lost a lot of muscle mass and not much of fat which makes you prone to many conditions of malnourishment. You could be deficient in some nutrients and have reduced immunity. Such weight loss is not healthy hence you always gain back all the lost weight and much more. Try to concentrate on a nutritious diet so that you don't land up with some serious illness.

I'm working in a IT company. From my school days I was bought up in a atmosphere where all like me and respect me. Infact most intelligent girl in school, college wherever I go. I'm very straight forward. I don't like people with two faces. I don't like people speaking at back. In my company I was put into designation which I feel like'it's not the right designation for me' I was put into support project in which I will have work for only an hour a day. But the company pays me very well. The thing is I'm not satisfied with my job now. During my college times I have a start up for me, for which I used to work for day and night. Sometimes I have not even come to home. I'm that much dedicated to my job I need a change from this job. There are many internal opportunities in my company. But my manager is not releasing me from this project. Yesterday I went to talk to my manager regarding this. And she doesn't speak like a manager she spoke like a local person. It triggered my anger I argued with her. She told many words which has hurt me very badly. Atlast convinced me since she was afraid I may escalate her. Now the problem is I'm disturbed. My mind is keep on thinking about yesterday's conversation in repeat mode. I couldn't concentrate on anything. I need some positive energy. I want to survive in that place. She made me felt inferior. :(I need a good counselling.

Dear lybrate-user, we cannot change the thinking of people around us what we can do is to make ourself such that we don't get affected by the behaviour of others. We cannot make everyone happy ,there is always two sides of coin. Is anyone that much important that you are wasting precious moment of your life for her/him. If someone will give you something and you will not accept that thing ,then that thing will remain with the same person, make your life's philosophy like this because at every stage of life there will be many people who will criticise you at different points of life and as you will progress then this criticism will increase ,think about the head of any nation how much criticism he/she has to face. Inspite of being the most powerful person people always cricises him/her for whatever he does. When these types of thought disturbs you write it on paper, make yourself busy as much as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this topic, make some good friends, with whom you can share everything, if possible take break for few days and make some plan to go anywhere. If you need my help you can contact me online also .take care.

Can depression be cured completely? Or is it just that with right medications & therapy the symptoms can just be kept at bay. Or is it just that the patient learns to live with the disease.

It depends on what" cure" means to you. If absence of depressive symptoms means" cure" then certainly medications with or without other forms of adjuvant therapies can cure depression. It also depends on the cause of depression. Depression caused by organic causes like deficiency of certain vitamins, thyroxine, some stressors in life, responds better to treatments than other forms of depression which do not have an identifiable cause. However the aim of treatment of depression usually is more than 50-60 % remission of symptoms and prevention of relapses. Percentages of remission may vary from 0-100 in different patients. If a patient of depression starts feeling that he has to learn to live with depression then certainly he has a scope of further improvement.

Iam 20 years old male, I had habituated to smokingSo please, advice me how to stop smoking.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Habitual smoking or chain smoking increases the Tar content in our lungs thus decreasing our lungs Air spaces called Alveolar sacs.Due to this decrease in air spaces,we cant exert much as our lungs cant carry more volumes of air due to decreased lung spaces.This leads to shortness of breath when we exert thus loosing our stamina.So to increase stamina,the first and foremost thing a chain smoker should do is ti quit smoking cigrattes and start doing morning cardio exercises or breathing exercises to increase lung spaces.It sounds very easy but my friend it is not that easy as it requires a lot of Determination and will power because you will have to face a lot of challenges while quitting this habit and you must have to be head strong.Once you quit your smoking habit,the things will automatically becomes easy for you. Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking.

Dear user. I can understand. Your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is therefore obvious that there is some disturbance in your life which you are not handling well. Meet with a counselor to deal with that. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
