Hi lybrate-user can understand your big loss. But life is to keep on moving. Get out to make new friends or find someone old friend whom you were closed too and discuss the things and find new good freind. Think positive. You have one life and you have parents too who are looking for you.

Take the help of some family members or common friends and resolve the issues. Everything is possible through dialogue. But certain caution needs to be exercised during this dialogue- do not begin with blaming. In a relationship both parties may fail to fulfill other's expectations. You may have some complaints, so will she - this is never ending. For a marriage to work you will both have to let go of the past and start afresh.

Dear friend, thanks for the query. Are you married or unmarried? Are you sexually active or recently being involved in any physical relationship? Do you also have problems of night falls or passage of semen (DHATU) in urine? If YES, then you need Psychiatric consultation in addition to urology/nephrology referral. If you need further clarification, you can contact me. Regards

I have a fear of haircuts, I can't get one and can't see others having the same. The feeling of water sprayed or someone touching or combing my hair terrifies me. I got my last one around 11 years back. I don't lik people around me saying about the health or personal problem of girls. These things depress me alot and make me go cry. Whensoever some speaks it makes an awkward feeling in my body. What can I do? These things are dominating my life .I don't think if I will ever be able to marry in my life. I can't tell my parents or anyone about this. I have fear .I fear. I need help if some body can help in the treatment.

Well you seem to have symptoms like fear of haircuts, body image abnormality thoughts etc. Usually persons with low self confidence or low self esteem, have self doubt regarding their body image and find it difficult to speak in public and also avoid talking to people regarding those issues. You seem to have predominantly anxiety spectrum issues but in any case you need a detailed evaluation for further treatment. Kindly consult your psychiatrist for help. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Hello, I am sorry for your loss. Life becomes hard when you loose your close one. But we need to cope up with the situation. Keeping everything with yourself will increase the burden. You need to talk to people you trust or make new friends even if you don't like it. Try and express your feelings in a way you like. Distract your self to the other activities that you like. You have a great life ahead, you have studies and a career to take care. It will take time but you will come over it.

Hi it may not be anxiety, but an excitement / euphoria which you have not experienced till now. Do not try to control if just experience and enjoy it. If you feel that it is affecting your functional abilities or if there are complaints that it is becoming a disturbance to others, get in touch with a clinical psychologist to confirm whether its normal happiness or the initial stage of mania/ hypomania.

Then the diagnosis may not be depression, since the results with antidepressants are excellent, rarely we see resistant depression. Get a 2nd opinion from another psychiatrist, and get evaluated in detail.

You should never self-medicate on any psychotropic drugs. These signs are exactly why you should not do so. Certain medicines take time to work and also to be removed from use by gradual weaning away from the substance. You, as a lay person, will have no idea as to how these chemicals work in your system to self-regulate them. Please go back to your doctor and let him/her do all the prescription and monitoring to serve your needs for coming off of the​ medication if they are reasonable.

This is all stress and worries of life. Issues of love life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a relationship/marriage/life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Hi, I can understand your situation. You are a mother of twins so obviously you would be physically more tired. First of all you should take care of your diet and rest. Take help of some one in the house or keep a maid. Also when your kids are sleeping that time you also take some rest. Many indian women make this mistake and complete the household chores when the kid is sleeping. This causes lack of rest in the body and in return the woman gets frustrated. Also with your doctor's advice take some vitamin supplements. Put yourself first before others for few months. Once the kids will grow up then you can attend others as they wish. Listen some soothing music. It will help to relax. Wish you a happy parenting.

Hi, I can imagine what you might be going through, but there are certain things which we, as normal human beings, need to remember. As human beings, we tend to cope with constant changes, by building new relationships at different stages in our life. However the priority keeps changing continuosly, like for example, a girl before her marriage gives utmost importance to her family. Whereas after marriage, her husband and children become her top priority, and this is the dictum. Similarly for you also the priorities should change and should start building new and healthy relationships with your friends at study or work place and you should make every effort to divert your attention and these feelings of insecurity. Remember that the basic human survival mechanism is based on the ability to adapt to changes, the failure of which will lead to mental unrest. Try to keep yourself as busy as possible and be surrounded by as many friends and other family members as possible. If it seems impossible to overcome this problem, then there is more to this problem and probably it needs to be dealt by a professional, either a psychiatrist or a counsellor.

Study Smarter and Not Harder!

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

Study Smarter and Not Harder!

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

  • How they are studying for so many in a day
  • How they do not have even time for anything else in their life due to study pressure
  • How they are sleep deprived
  • How much they are stressed
  • 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:

First, work on raising your brain's natural ability to concentrate or in other words, learn to increase your attention span.

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.


Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include:

 

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Lumocity and use only free version this will help you restrict your daily play time to 20 minutes and have maximum benefit.
  • 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.
  • Exercise - 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 4-5 hours of study very efficient.


Optimize your mental state and 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 can I help?

If you want to get individualized expert opinion about how you are studying currently and what ways you can improve; book an audio consultation with me. Once I know what your current study methods are, I will be able to give you specific tips to improve upon. Most likely once you incorporate my tips you will be spending less time studying and your grades will improve. That's what is studying smarter and not harder means!!

Hi sir I have very depression in my life plzz how to remove in my mind in my problems.
Depression stage comes in every one life. But somebody may give less priority somebody may give severe priority. Everyone affected depression status in their life cycle. But everybody not using medicine for that. They have the capability to control thier thoughts. You are sensitive and thinking too much about this status. Please feel free. Be share and express your personal internal feelings and problems to your close friends and family members. Do not spend alone. Aloneness is a dangerous thing. Be sociable and be happy all the time. Be enjoy the every movement of life situations. Do not think too much about unnecessary things. Feel always confident and positive manner. Better to come yourself from this stage. If it is not possible to yourself. Then better to consult a good psychologist in hyderabad. Ok all the best.
