Dear , if you are able to watch an interesting movie for an hour, or play an interesting game for half an hour, you do not have any concentration problem. Left is your attention span. Interest in the activity improves attention span. Take care.

Sir/Madam, I am 27years old unmarried boy. My father expired due to road accident last year at age of 51. He was living in Jaipur along with family (mother and brother). I was close to him as he was my idol. My sole aim of life was to make him proud by fulfilling his wish of me become IAS. But since the accident I am very depressed. I think about him every day. I always believed everything happens for a good reason but I can't find any in this. I lost faith in god. He was really a good man. Never did wrong to anybody and taught me same. That's why I feel so much anger that why he went away like this. I have so much regrets like when He was in hospital after accident I got scared so much that I didn't do anything for him. I should have been brave. I regret that he was in tension in his last days as he was cheated by his brother and I knowing this fact didn't console or reduce his tension, I was busy in my job. I am living in Noida alone. I left my job 4 months ago and I am unable to prepare for a new job. I was senior software engineer. I don't find positivity in anything. I lost interest in everything. I lost aim of my life and don't know what to do with my life. He was the most important thing in my life. I will never b as good man as him. I can't move on. Sometimes I wish I was dead instead of him. My mother always keep talking about him and cries everyday. This makes me even more sad. Sometimes I feel like I don't want to live anymore but I don't have this option as I have to take care of my brother and mother. But I don't how much more I can take it. Please help me.

Your father is there in heaven looking at you and must be feeling very proud of you that you respect and love him so much. I am sure you are a good man that you want to take care of your family. These kinds of feelings are normal after loosing your loved ones. Do not blame your self for any kind of behaviour or do not feel guilty for anything now get hold of your self and start thinking what your dad would want of you. Always experience his blessings n his presence around you. You can still make him proud. He wants you to be happy so pamper yourself with your friends and go out often. I am sure you will be fine and soon you will get a good job. Do not loose faith in god sometimes we can not understand his ways. God surely has better plan for you and your father is in better place now. All the best sm and take care of yourself and your family.

How to increase concentration power so that I do not get distracted and retain what I studied.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Depression - Is it Curable?

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Depression - Is it Curable?

Depression is recognized as a mood disorder characterized by the prolonged feeling of sadness and loss of interest in otherwise regular activities. The symptoms include loss of sleep and appetite, loss of interest, persistent feeling of sadness and lowered self-esteem. These symptoms should last for a minimum of 4 weeks for the individual to be diagnosed with depression. Sometimes, at its later stages, depression can also be accompanied by suicidal tendencies.

How it can be treated?

  1. Role of anti-depressants: Depression has become rather common in the present day scenario. The treatment varies from prescription drugs to therapy. People who have depression are usually given mood enhancers and anti-depressants. Antidepressants are medicines used to help people who have depression. With the help of these depression medications, most people can achieve significant recovery from depression. Most antidepressants are believed to work by slowing the removal of certain chemicals from the brain. These chemicals are called neurotransmitters (such as serotonin and norepinephrine). Neurotransmitters are needed for normal brain function and are involved in the control of mood and in other responses and functions, such as eating, sleep, pain, and thinking. Antidepressants help people with depression by making these natural chemicals more available to the brain. By restoring the brain’s chemical balance, antidepressants help relieve the symptoms of depression. Specifically, antidepressant drugs help reduce the extreme sadness, hopelessness, and lack of interest in life that are typical in people with depression. However, these are but short-term solutions to depression and don’t necessarily cure the individual completely. For the treatment to be effective, the drug intake must be combined with therapeutic techniques to solve the problem at the root level.
  2. Therapy: Different therapeutic techniques are used to treat depression depending majorly on the individual, the cause of depression and general history and state of mind. Research suggests that client centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are a good start with an average case of depression. The therapists usually incorporate several other methods based on the client’s need to get maximum effect. Adlerian techniques, where individuals are made to comprehend the thoughts and emotions which influence their lifestyles and adopt a more productive and positive way of life, are rather helpful with most clients who suffer from depression.

Note
Depression is a fairly common mental health disorder today, affecting a large population. Depression must be acknowledged as a proper mood disorder and not just a passing phase. It is completely curable with proper medicine and therapeutic sessions. The individual is able to move over the feelings of unhappiness and lack of interest with proper care and acceptance from loved ones in addition to therapy and the drugs, of course. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I can't sleep because I still remember her. Even little things somewhere find associations with her. She cheated on me with her boss while I was busy making a life to be together with her. I'm broken completely mentally. I cry almost everyday. I can't get her out of my head. I have tried forgetting her but it just does not happen at all. I left my job in another country to be with her in India. And this is what she did to me. I've abused her after I found out, but even that isn't liberating enough. I'm broken down completely. Help me get out of this. I am only 26 and a huge career ahead of me. I need to take care of my parents too. I can't get her feelings get in my way. I've tried a lot. Help me forget her. Please I beg you.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Love is deeper and more emotional than any other relationship. That is why forgetting is trouble. Recent research shows trying to forget worsens your agony. Therefore don't try to forget. Keep those memories. Let those memories come. Learn to enjoy them. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

I am tripti n I am 30 years old. I become angry soon so how can I control on my anger?

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Hi Librate user when you get angry try to take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything. Try to write your thoughts and opinion, and causes of your anger. Take deep breath, drink a glass of water. Talk to youself "RELAX" or "TAKE IT EASY" Repeat it to yourself. Anger is a normal emotion but it is important, you should deal with it in positive way. Uncontrolled anger are bad for your health. You should try to understand and remind yourself that anger can't solve any problem. Regular exercise is a way to improve your mood and release your tension and anger. Thanks.

Sir my concentration on study become regular weak And I read book in my own languages i. E. hinder I cant concentrated on it I just read it what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. 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. Now take you pick!

Suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar-disorder, OCD etc. Will you please help? Already have been taking anti-psychotic drugs for 3 years. Thanks in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are currently being treated for schizophrenia. I don?t know where you have the idea that you have OCD and Bi-polar too. Sometimes the symptoms overlap, look alike or are wrongfully diagnosed if the information you gave was not accurate. There is an important need for you to simultaneously go for talk therapy. In this therapy you will learn skills and coping mechanisms to aid with the medicine. Relying only on the medicine will not suffice. There is a lot to learn about social adaption, mental skills to train your thoughts, to use healthier neural pathways and networks that come with extended rehabilitation programs. Put yourself into a tight time schedule for the day and fill it with interesting activities. Major concerns like hygiene, sleep habits, work commitments, spiritual obligations etc. Need to be learned and imbibed to make you functional and productive.

Was an academically brilliant child and always topped my class till grade 10. Slumped in grade 11 and was diagnosed with depression and ADHD in grade 12th. I was put onto medication but it did more bad than good and was put off of it abruptly. I did get better but I do not think I am what I was before the episode. I have lost the charm and will to do most things and have not improved academically either. Had to take a drop for re taking my medically entrances. The next 6 months are possibly the most important years of my life. I would describe my current state as a hangover. I'm not as energetic and willing as before. How do I get better as quickly as possible?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should meet with a counselor and explore the possibility of childhood influences as this is the last time you will get to sort out the past influences. If you do not, then you will have a permanent negative trait, which I believe is what is happening to you. Do not self-medicate or regulate medicine yourself: leave it to the doctors. Counseling will give you a lot of skills and techniques which medicine cannot give at all. So it is in the combination of medicine and counseling that you will get the best results.

Dear Manish. Welcome to lybrate. You are just 28. Hypertension at this age is not essentially due to some physical diseases. This hypertension could be due to stress, anxiety and sedentary life style etc. Quitting smoking, physical exercises, avoiding stress and be calm and relaxed, restricting salt, eating a lot of vegetables and fruits etc can help maintain your blood pressure at normal level. You should work with your doctor and get his advice at any cost. Take care.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There are few food 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.

This is called phobia. Internal frustration and internal frustrated thoughts are main cause of phobia. Some cases past incidents and past bad memories are also one of the cause of phobia. Express internal frustrated thoughts to your close friends and family members. Do not think about past incidents. Stress may also cause for increase your sugar level. Better to stress management techniques. Relaxing so much of time. Eating new food items. Visiting new places, spending most of the time with friends. Joyful environment. Create your own recreation channel. Take good diet. Do not eat night time food. Beaway of sugar content food. Take precautions even tea and coffee. Walk more time. Take regular medicine for sugar. Diet control and walking is more important for sugar patents. Most of the time do not think sugar level. Feel always comfortable. Three months if you take precautions sugar level automatically. Come down. Maintain good relations with others. Be sociable. Be happy all time. Do not sit alone. Be share each and everything to others. Best of luck.

Can I chew nicotex 4mg chewing gum to help to quit smoking, now I am smoking 20 cigarette.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yeah sure. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.
