I don't like and never drink tea or coffee and I am a student and want to study for more and more hours but I felt sleepy whole of the day. What can I drink instead of coffee and tea to get myself energised and able to study more and more.

A lot depends on how many hours you are already sleeping. Please remember that 7 hours of sleep is needed to retain good memory of what you have read. Despite that if you are feeling excessively sleepy, get a serum TSH level done. Also, make sure you sleep and wake up daily at reasonably fixed times. If the TSH levels are normal, certain medicines can be suggested to keep you awake for longer duration. Certain kinds of depression are associated with excessive sleep. I hope that you are not feeling depressed or sad all the time.

Dear, I can understand. At your age concentration through meditation is a futile effort. That may not be possible at all. Instead engage yourself in games and enjoy with friends. That builds up concentration. Take care.

Hello doctor, am under too stress. I want to clear my problem as soon as possible. I could not take any decisions because of this issues. Am married. But my family side no support. My husband was took care of me well. Now am 4 months pregnant. When I got confirmation about my pregnancy my husband feel happy. But at the same time he forced me to get my parents support. But they ignored me. Then after, he was silent. He was good to me. 20 days back his college friend started to msging to him. Day and night full chat. I told him to maintain timings. She too married and have 2 kids. But her personal family life is not good. She was his ex lover. But due to family reasons he rejected her. In earlier I did not take serious. But is sensed something going bad. I just checked his msges. They both wanted together. She literally made him to drag towards her. Because she needs love. He got mind distraction. His past memories made him to chat and he too started to move towards her. I keep on discussed with him smooth manner. Because am pregnant I should not be in much depress. And also I do not have support. So I was keep moving smooth with him. Yesterday, night she msged to him. I got too wild and I msged her to stop her msg. She immediately called him and ask about my place. Previously, he stayed in paying guest till arrange a house. So I think he maintain that he is living in paying guest. Because he do not want to loose her. And loose me also. After my msg he behaved very violent to me. He kicked me backside. Now am having slight pain in my stomach. He beated me very badly today morning. He forgot that am pregnant. He feels that his lies came out. But he covered up something to her. Now I do not know what he is going to take decision. And I do not know what am going to take decision. But my intension is not scolding her. I thought of control her msges. Because she came in between, he slipped suddenly. Human mentality will change anytime. But their conversation is like husband and wife. She is living australia. She having nice money. So she booked tickets to india to meet my husband. So what to predict regard this meeting? I can not even imagine if anything happen physical. But when ever I ask regard her msg. He told something to me. But he msged some other thing to her close. So please doctor advise me. What to do regard this.

There is hardly that can be done on a doctors part to resolve your personal issues with your husband. From a doctors perspective I would suggest you to maintain your calm. Being stressed all the time and reacting to his alleged actions is not going to sort things out. You both need to talk ina constructive way, preferably in front of a counsellor, who can be a family friend or so. Pregnancy is definitely a stressful state of mind and body and women tend to have issues of anxiety and depression even without any interpersonal stressors in their lives. If you feel you are unable to handle the stress and anxiety consult a psychiatrist in your vicinity.

Learn how to leave alcohol habit

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Agra

Alcoholism

Treatment


The chronic alcoholic first of all must make a firm resolve stop drinking. One should abstain from alcohol all at once for the habit cannot be got rid of in gradual stages.

The most effective way to treat alcoholism is to build the body's nutritional integrity so as to prevent craving for stimulants like drinks. The patients should be put on a cleansing juice fast for at least 10 days in the beginning. During this period, he should have the juice of an orange every two hours from 8 am. To 8 pm. The juice may be diluted with warm water if desired. If orange juice does not agree, grapes juices may be taken. Each day while fasting, bowels should be cleansed of effete and poisonous matter thrown off by the self- cleansing process set up by the body. This can be achieved by warm water enema.

During the juice fast, the patient will usually feel no craving for alcohol. This will a good 10-day start towards breaking the drinking habit and would help remove not only the physical dependence but also the psychological factors. After the initial fast on juices, the optimum diet of vital nutrients is essential. Such a diet should consist of whole grains, cereals, nuts, seeds and sprouts, fresh fruits and vegetable.

It is advisable that in the beginning of the treatment, the patient is given a suitable substitute to relieve the craving if and when such a craving occurs. The best substitute drink for alcohol is a glass of fresh fruit juice, sweetened with honey if desired. In the alternative, wholesome candy may be taken. The patient should always have easily available juice, candy or other snacks to be taken between meals if he feels a craving for a stimulant.

All refined foods such as sugar, white rice, macaroni products and white flour and meat should be avoided. The patient should eat several small, meals a day in preference to two or three large once and avoid strong condiments such as pepper, mustard and chilly. He should not smoke as this will only increase his desire for alcohol.

Apples are considered valuable in the treatment of alcoholism as there, use removes intoxication and reduces the craving for wines and other intoxication liquors. The raw celery juice is also considered useful. It has a sobering effect and is an antidote to alcohol.

In addition to proper nutrition, plenty of rest and outdoor exercise are necessary. The healthy condition of the appetite center, which controls the craving for alcohol is improved by exercise. Yogic asans for general health such as padmasan, vajrasan, vakrasan, paschimotanasan, yoga mudra, bhujangasan, halasan and shalabhasana, and yogic kriyas like jalneti, kunjal and simple pranayamas like kapalbhati, anuloma-viloma, shitali and sitkari will be beneficial.

Copious drinking of water, hot fomentations on the stomach and abdomen with a wet girdle pack between application are also effective water treatments for alcoholism.

And finally, it will be advisable to follow the ten commandments to prevent alcoholism. These are:

Never drink when you 'need one':

Sip slowly;

Space your drinks, taking a second drink 30 minutes after the first and a third an hour after the second; dilute your alcohol;

Keep an accurate and truthful record of the amount and number of drinks you take;

Never conceal the amount of alcohol you drink;

Do not drink on an empty stomach;

Stop drinking on 'signal' (signals are lunch, dinner, fatigue, sex stimulation, boredom, frustration and bedtime);

Make it a rule never to take a drink to escape discomfort-either physical or mental; and never, never take a drink in the morning thinking it will cure a hangover.

I have forgot problem small small thing generally I forgot what should I have to do? Please advice.

If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.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. Avoid junk food.

Dear, 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. 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 post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

MD - Psychiatry

No they are safe drugs, but do not seem to be from a standard company, seems local ones. Get the same from a good company, ask your psychiatrist for it. Also you need to stop the Ona 0.5 mg after some time because that is not advisable on a longer run. All the best.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs . If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break.

Please suggest me some steps to quit smoking. I have tried so many time but always failed. My age is 36, smoking since 20 years of age. I have work style which is really stressful. Please suggest.

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.

You are certainly in a bad situation in your marriage itself no doubt. However, this relationship that you have developed has been under those circumstances, and there are no guarantees that this ‘boy’ will be able to handle you and be mature enough. I think anyway that before you get into another relationship, you must be out of your previous one. Your age difference itself makes you two incompatible. This kind of situation often happens under these circumstances and will change as soon as the matters are different. I suggest that you stop this relationship forthwith and attend to your husband’s alcoholism immediately. If after that, you cannot live with that person you may divorce him. This does not make this ‘boy’ in any way suitable at that time, either. But I suggest that you look for a more grown up man who can take care of you and love you, under normal circumstances. Very often one person falls more in love than the other and cannot live without that person: this is something you should have considered, being the older person. Now he may not be willing to give up a free-sex in a platter, and now that he has fallen in love he will be willing to do harmful and unethical things to force this demand on you!!!

You must be under some stress. Meet with a counselor and sort this out and you will start remembering a lot better. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory anyway: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. 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 too. 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. Avoid junk food.

My Son is 2.5 years old. He is fine as regards to health. He has a very good intellectual capabilities, he can remember the names of all my family members, can easily recite the stories that I tell him and can also talk in a fluent manner. He also can also identify the pictures in his study book. But as and when he is growing old he is getting scared of even the things that he used to enjoy earlier like riding a swing, or he gets too much scared of the balloon or crackers. He use to hang his breath when he was less than 1.5 years, but now he has no such problem. I just want to know how I tackle this problem, I create stories where he enjoys blowing of balloons or riding swings or blowing crackers. He enjoys them. But he is still too scared of things. Me and my also use to be scared of things when we were kids. So just need idea how to tackle this.

Dear lybrate-user. Children are social creatures. They always associate things with something else which gives them scare. Here, he is afraid of sound may be because he associated the sound with some other painful or worrying experience. You have to remove that association. Stories will not help. Tip- blow a balloon or cracker and immediately offer something which the child likes. Repeat the exercise many times. Now the child will associate the noise with something pleasurable and he will not be scared. You can experiment with other things also in the same way. But before that I advise you to speak to me, regarding the swings, the child is scared because of the balance problem created by the eustachian tube. It will take time, but the child will get used to it. Don't worry. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, Hope this helps: Prepare to Start Strong First and foremost, no matter who you're speaking to or where, prepare yourself to start strong. You can't talk quietly and mutter and hope that you'll break out of it and be more confident later. You have to start talking loud, proud, and actively right away so that you don't let yourself develop any negative habits. Exercise Beforehand Use general stress reduction tips - like exercise, but also sleep, healthy eating, and even relaxation strategies - to make sure that your mind and body are more relaxed before you start speaking to others. Exercise itself is profoundly beneficial, as it has a calming effect on the brain, increases confidence, and reduces the ability to feel more pronounced anxiety symptoms. Practice Embarrassment One strategy that some people find effective is practicing feeling embarrassed until you no longer fear it. You can actually find this fairly fun. Consider doing naturally embarrassing activities like going out in a clown outfit and standing in public, or singing 80's music loudly in the street. The more you can get used to the idea of being embarrassed, the more you'll stop fearing it. Work Your Way Up You should also strongly consider smaller speaking engagements and working your way up to the number of people you talk to/in front of. Speaking in front of 3 people is much different than speaking in front of 300. At some point you'll find your anxiety increase. Find that point, and work your way up with the number of people you're speaking in front of until you no longer find it quite as upsetting. Practice Until You're Bored With It Anxiety with the material (if you're giving a presentation) can exacerbate speaking anxiety. Even if you know what you're going to say by heart, if you have any concerns that you're going to forget the content, those concerns will grow larger when you're actually speaking. Practice, practice, and practice some more, until you're so familiar with everything you're going to say that you will probably have dreams about it. Also, Try Pictures, Visualization, Laughing Just Before You Speak Sometimes we don’t realize we’re nervous until just before it’s our turn to speak. You may feel calm and prepared until just before your name is called. If you’re out of view, you can try methods such as looking at a baby photo, smiling big, telling yourself a joke or taking big deep breaths. If you’re in plain sight, use your brain to calm yourself. Try visualization or discreet, deep breathing. Keep a smile on your face and try to look relaxed. Consult a psychologist to learn more techniques and ease your anxiety by eliminating it from root. All the best.
