How to keep steady concentration in studies? I sit with great interest to study but as soon as I sit. My concentration breaks. How much hard I try. I can't concentrate back. Wat to do?

Psychologist, Chennai
Walk before an exam. Teach what youhave learned to someoneelse. Take regular study breaks after 40-45 mins. Music can also help elevate your mood and motivate to study longer. Make your study space portable. Practice. Practice. Practicing simple answers to past exam questions can help train your brain to retrieve information. Do not stay up all night before exams. Discover new ways to learn. Study in a group- helps to collect new insights & enhances your learning experience. Sq3r strategy to help you concentrate, understand and remember what you are studying. S- survey (look at headings and key points) q- question (what do I already know? what do I want to know?) r-read (read the text) r-recite (try to remember what you have read) r-review (the work you have learned)

What you are experiencing is called illness anxiety and may take the form of a disorder called hypochondriasis. In this disirder, a person may feel fear or anxiety of getting a disease without any basis. Like in your case too. You need to think rationally that touching saliva may not cause rabies. Fear of disease has occupied your thoughts. For that you need to see how rabies is spread. Then you will understand where you are mistaken. This knowledge will help you to reconsider your beliefs and help you in relieving fear. You need to just start believing that your idea of disease may be wrong and without basis. Only then you will b able to see the contradictory evidence. Otherwise you will always try to reassure yourself of having a disease.

You will sleep will return. Your sexual potency may be revived to normal levels. Your social image and self-confidence will get a huge boost. People will look up to you.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Mr. lybrate-user it is quiet natural for any person who is stressed out due to various reasons to have mood swings like what you are experiencing. You will do well with doing relaxation exercises and yoga. Try to do swimming, play music which can help. Avoid smoking, alcohol and excessive caffeine which can worsen your problem. Try to stay with family and friends and go out rather than trying to stay alone. Go to parks have a walk and if possible take a short break from work and spend time with your loved ones which usually will help. Even after doing all these activities you feel to experience symptoms it is high time for you to consult a psychiatrist.

Are You Depressed? It Can Hurt Your Sex Life

Are You Depressed? It Can Hurt Your Sex Life

Depression is one of those experiences when one may feel sad, lonely, dejected and discouraged. Doubt, anxiety and uncertainty crawl in so much so that they may lead to problems in decision making. A depressed person feels devoid of energy and the motivation to do anything at all seems to have disappeared.

Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex releases 'happy hormones'. Thus depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body.

So if depression is badly ruining your sex life, doing these will help big time:

  1. Depression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds. As part of the treatment, the patient will need to find and explore new ways of enjoying sex that can strengthen strained relationships.
  2. Having an open conversation with your partner is key to improving relationships and one's sex life. Talk about your sexual needs and help your partner understand your mental barriers to sex. Find forms of foreplay that appeal to both of you. It is also important for you and your partner to understand that there is no 'standard' to how often you should have sex or how you should feel after it.
  3. Ask your doctor to adjust medication In cases where the antidepressant curbs libido, lowering or adjusting the drug dosage can be a solution to treat the depression without curbing sexual desire. Do not attempt to adjust your medication on your own. Your doctor may also change the drug to another that does not affect your sex drive.

I am a student of classX and my boards are going on Plzzz give some tips to increase concentration.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 sugar and junk food.

Hi lybrate-user, Thanks for writing in. Welcome to the forum. The situation that you are describing is commonly seen wherein a relatively good control of symptoms is broken due to stress. There are many ways of solving this problem. The first and the recommended measure is to get psychotherapy or counseling. This will help improve your symptoms, solve the future/ career issue effectively and also equip and empower you with psychological skills that will be useful to face stressful situations in the future also. Moreover, it may also facilitate reduction of medicine dosage and also eventual stoppage of the same. The second option is to increase fluoxetine to 80 mg and there is a good chance that things will improve. However, this is a less satisfactory option when compared to the first one. Hope that helps. Take care!

Many people have problems with forgetfulness, even if they otherwise have a good memory. Absentmindedness is something that affects all of us at some time or another. Absentmindedness is the natural consequence of being able to do as much as we do. By being able to perform an activity without thinking about it we are able to perform many more tasks than we would otherwise. However, sometimes things we would like to remember get overlooked in the process. It isn't possible to eliminate forgetfulness or absentmindedness, but there are techniques and strategies that can help reduce how often it happens. With practice and memory trainingyou can develop the skills necessary to reduce absentmindedness. Have more sleep. Lack of sleep is one of the most common causes of forgetfulness. Hence, get plenty of sleep. For most people, at least seven or eight hours of sleep a day is needed. If you could not get more sleep at night, try taking a nap sometime during the day. Get more oxygen to the brain. Our brain uses oxygen whenever it performs its functions; the more tasks it does, the more oxygen it needs. Hence, for us to think better and remembers things clearly, we must get more oxygen to our brain. This is only possible if we increase our flow of blood through quitting smoking and regular fitness exercises like aerobics. Regular exercise would not only be beneficial for the memory but as well as for the entire wellness of the body. Experts believe that elderly people who exercise regularly have less chance of decreasing memory ability. Eat healthy foods. Diet is important in order for our mind to function effectively. One of the best types of food is fish because it contains omega 3 fatty acid, an essential oil that helps the brain to receive and retain information. Fresh vegetables and fruits should also be included in the diet. Check your iron level. Iron is known to boost our memory, and therefore, it must be maintained in a sufficient level. Eat foods with plenty of iron or take iron supplements regularly. Simplify. Absent-mindedness is oftentimes caused by having too much to remember. Our brain also has its satiation point and whatever we put in beyond its capacity only gets spilled out and wasted. Thus, simplify your life, remove unnecessary things, and select things to remember. Prioritize. An extension to the idea of simplification is prioritizing. When there are so many things to do, better plan out which must be or can be done first and which can come last. Also, eliminate some activities so all the things in your top priorities can be realized. Write things down. This might seem an easy step but this is seldom practiced by everyone. We tend to memorize things just in our heads, but unfortunately, we lose much information in the end. The best thing to do is to keep a notebook with you all the time. Write down your list of errands, things to buy or do, important dates, names of people you meet or places you have been to, or whatever things you can scribble that which can serve you well any given day. Once you write them down, you can forget them. When you need them, you can readily open your notebook and find the information you need. For short-term needs, you might also write on sticky notes and hang them on the most conspicuous places. Develop routines. Naturally, we remember the things that we habitually do. Thus, do the same things in the same order and at the same time every day. When you do tasks in the same order every day, you develop habits and do not have to think about them anymore. Develop techniques. You can devise some ways to compensate for your forgetfulness. Say using a recorder and making a list of things. If you are the type who usually misplaces keys, train yourself to place them in a single area, like a hook near a door. If you get confused over piles of documents and papers, learn to organize and make use of folders and cabinets. These are only some ways to develop ways to remember the things you tend to forget.
